Does anyone know if this needs to be lubricated? If so, with what? I am tempted to use some McLube which dries completely and is very "fast".

Trying to get my R16 back together - I had it apart to clean the glass in the finder tube. I couldn't find a way to get to them without taking EVERYTHING apart.

Thanks!

Hi Steve,

Before you do this, contact Beaulieu service guru Björn Andresson in Stockholm. He will now what to use, and, if you are having problems re-assembling your R16 camera, he has reasonable rates and a fairly quick turn-around.

Postal address, e-mail, and phone:
Björn Andersson, Filmkonsult Svebaco KB, Vidholmsbackarna 54, SE-165 72 Hässelby, Sweden 
<bjorn.andersson@brevet.nu>, 
+46 (0) 8-38 10 74)

Good luck!
Bengt in Stockholm
