I've just finished documenting the complete strip down of a Bell & Howell 35mm Eyemo:

Very similar mechanically to a 16mm 70 series Filmo. 

 

These cameras have an uncased spring, so they can be very dangerous to dismantle. Personally I wouldn't recommend inexperienced people doing anything more than removing the front. But I figure if people are going to try it they're better off having some idea of what's inside.

Very nicely done Dom.

 

I've only repaired the odd B&H Filmo, so it's interesting to see how similar the Eyemo actually is.
