Bolex EBM Bayonet to c-mount to FD.

Any drawbacks or issues if I go this route instead of having one fabricated?

Better for heavy lenses would be the Canon to Bolex bayonet adapters sold by JKCamera.

hey,,i have a cp16r,,i was looking at the bolex bayonet adapter in c mount,,i was wondering the size of the bolex bayonet that i think would fit into my cp16r mount,,?if it fit i could turn the ring and clamp the bayo into the cp mount,,that would be soooo great if it worked,,i could use c mount and maybe m42 in my cp16r,,,so,,i was just wondering if anyone had the size of the bolex bayo mount,,,,worth a shot.????

The Bolex bayonet mount has a considerably shorter flange focal distance than the CP-16R. It just won't work.
