Some time ago i've inherited my grandfathers Paillard Bolex 16 mm, and came with a quick conclusion that it didn't work. I thought so because only one spool is turning when I press the film button.
But after taking it out of the closet again and taking a good look at it, I'm not so sure it's broken or not.
So after some good time of looking on the internet for Bolex enthusiasts, my journey leads to here.
Now for my question, if you open the Bolex you can insert two spools. If I press the button for filming only one spool is turning.
I've looked on youtube for similair paillard bolexes but I couldn't quite find the same one as mine, but all the ones I saw on youtube both spools were turning. Maybe mine only needs to turn one?
I hope you enthusiasts can help me out!
p.s. Does any one know the official site of bolex? Or doesn't excist any more?
