Hi hi,

This weekend I am shooting some footage to test my Bolex H-16 with a friend of mine this weekend before he leaves for seven months in a prod. co. in the Phillipines, and just realized that the hand winding crank is missing! I am located on the Jersey Shore, does anyone have one/know where to get one that I can buy/trade for or borrow for a few hours?

Help!

HI Walintino...If you can't be helpful, don't add salt to the wounds.

No, I wanted to shoot off some footage with my Bolexes for fun with my friend who is leaving for the Phillipines, not giving him the Bolexes to use over there.

Get a better command of the English language then call someone who'll listen.

Sorry, can't give you immediate help, but you can always find stuff on eBay.

Try one of your local shops that sells or repair 16mm cams...they probably have some spare parts lyin' around.
