I have an old Bolex H16 that I haven't used for about 15 years. I've been thinking about shooting something with it so I brought it out of the closet to get reacquainted with the controls etc and I discovered that the edges of the shutter blades have what I think is corrosion due to chipping. I lightly scraped it with an orange stick and white powder came off.
I don't think the blades are bent. The shutter seems to spin smoothly when run. I kind of think that the blades have been like this the entire time I've owned the camera but maybe the corrosion has worsened a little over time. It did not affect the film last time I shot with it but if it has worsened I'm afraid that the corrosion would come off into the gate while the film is running.
I guess my question is, is there an easy solution to this? Like I'm sort of wondering if there is a paint that I could use on the edges of the blades that would seal over the chipped area. Any advice is appreciated!
