I got a Bolex 16mm Rex-5 fully overhauled, and will still run a test to see how it goes.
But I was playing with it (and running at 12fps without film, of course).
And wondering how many rounds would be the "normal" to wind a Rex-5 model?
The Rex-5 I have I wind it 18 full rounds until I fell it getting hard to wind. Then I stop.
But I've read somewhere that the "NORMAL" to spin it 11 times and that is enought to run around 25 seconds.
Anyway, maybe was another H16 and not exactly a Rex-5 that I saw?
Is there any difference between how many rounds you have to wind on different Bolex models?
Thanks in advance,
