I'm having an intermittent rubbing problem in the S16 area of a converted NPR. You can see a frame demonstrating the issue here:

I've photoshopped the lower right corner for clarity. It happens with both mags (both of which have had the rollers modified). My suspicion is that the aperture plate, which still has both 16mm ridges intact, is the culprit. Does this seem likely? Can I/should I have it milled down on that side? Any other theories on what it might be? The camera was recently serviced, and otherwise works nicely.

Thanks,
Steve

Hi Steve,

sorry, I'm not the NPR expert (yet) as mine is still sitting in the tech's shop. But your theory sounds about right. Best call a tech like Bernie O'Doherty or Les Bosher and ask them.

Cheers, Dave
