If it's a wind-up, you could get a shoulder stock/mount that's usually used for SLRs. Here's one that's on Ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/...1QQcmdZViewItem
If you do a search for "camera shoulder stock mount" or a variation thereof, you can find something but you'll need to do some trawling about. Also, there's an arri shoulder mount and a Kovas/Kinor body brace that pops up now and again. And keep in mind that if you've got an EBM you'll probably need to buy a 12v battery and one of those on/off power cords from Du-all or Procam since the power grip won't fit.

This is a shoulder brace made for video cameras I got off eBay. I adapted it for my Bolex though I had to adjust the reflex finder to come off the side to reach my eye.
