this will sound like a stupif question but im trying to figure out a few engineering ideas but im not near my bolex to have a look at it. when cranking the 1:1 shaft, to make it go forward to you turn it clockwise or counterclockwise?

Pretty sure its clockwise ...

Simply, open it up and see if the larger claw pulls down when you crank that way - either that or the rollers roll the film down from top to bottom etc...
