I've got a bolex H16 REX-2 (with the round base) and I want to mount it to a modern tripod, anyone know where I can find an adapter to mount it? any help would be appreciated

Isn't that just a standard 3/8"-16tpi mount?

Except with what I recall as a Bolex friction head with a round adapter plate (which uses the 3/8" screw with a key into little slot on the camera). You can use the Bolex on any tripod using the standard 3/8" screw. A modern head would be much better than that friction head.

Watch ebay. They come one there for sale fairly frequently. As I recall they go for around a couple of hundred dollars plus shipping. B)
