Hello,

I'm wondering if anyone else who owns an O'Connor O Box matte box has had troubles with the eyebrow (top flag) becoming stuck. The first time it became stuck it literally broke off in an assistant's hand as he gingerly tried to adjust it. I had it repaired and since then I have tried everything I can think of to make it move more easily. I have taken it apart several times and lubricated the hinge pieces with silicone. When that didn't work I tried graphite. Nothing has worked. Once again it broke off as it was being adjusted. I'm wondering if this is a common thing that others are experiencing. I've never had a problem with anything O'Connor so I'm wondering if I just got a lemon.

Thanks.

Scott
