Hi everyone,

I recently bought my first Bolex REX 4 and decided to clean it the other day. Everything was going fine until I decided to remove the turret and the front plate under it. As I removed the plate I heard a nut drop into the camera. I have successfully removed the unknown nut from inside the camera but know have no idea where it goes. Please could someone help!

I would rather first try and fix this myself and if not succesful then take it to get repaired.

Thanks

It is probably the interior nut for the Turret Lock .   I had the same thing happen when I unscrewed the large screw on the turret lock (because it had become stuck ) . I heard it fall off and was rattling around inside the film chamber when I moved the camera.
