I need to get a 400' mag serviced. I think it has a problem with take-up. Does anyone has any experience with servicing these mags? Any shops you would recommend? I'd prefer something in the Boston NYC area.

Thanks!

they are fairly easy to self servive - take the feed and claw unit apart (video tape yourself doing it so you know what goes where when you want to put it back together)

The main problems are fuji :) chips stuck in the mechanism and | or damaged claws - in my experience

you can give everything a good clean (air can it)

Apart from that you might need parts...

Go into one of the big shops (Otto N, CSC etc) they usually have some old genius in the back who can help :)

thanks

Hi, Andrew,

I'm here in Maine and regularly service all kinds of mags (and I'm Arri factory trained). Feel free to call or email if you would like more information. I'd be glad to help you out, and the turn-around time would be fast.

Cheers,
Bernie O'Doherty
