I have a couple of questions regarding Bolex lubrication
1) Should I attempt to do this myself or should I pay a man $125 to do it for me
-is it worth the risk (breaking the camera)
-is it hard to do (I have used the bolex several times, but only
in rental situations, therefore I have not had to maintain one)
2) What type of oil should I use and what tools will I need
3) What is the procedure for lubricating a bolex, in steps
4) how often should I do this?
Thanks In advanced

With cameras, as they are often substantial investments, I always recommend erring on the side of letting the pros handle it. I would speak with a bolex technician on your cameras specific needs and allow him/her to do the more "delicate" (read - taking apart major parts of the camera) maintenance.
