    Hi All,

    I'm trying my hand at basic camera repair on a Beirette Junior II.

    Can anyone describe how to remove the film advance knob and lever on these cameras?

    I have unscrewed the central screw in the top of the advance knob, the screw itself would appear long enough to thread the knob to the axle it sits on top of (the axle that carries the film take-up spool, etc), suggesting it is the fastener I need to remove, but things seem stuck fast. I am left wondering if there is some other fastening that is keeping the advance knob/lever assembly attached, something that I have overlooked.
