Hello,

 

Im having trouble whit my two Eyemo cameras. They are 71-C and KF-2 models.

 

71-C runs well whit out door but when I put the door on it runs too slow. Door must jam the spools or pole but I don see any marks on spools or heads of poles. Also when I put it on it dosnt feel like it touches somethin it shouldunt touch. So Im relly buzzled by this.

 

Problem whit KF-2 is that its take-up spool spins too slow letting film to go loose.

 

I know I should take these in overhault but I dont have the money right now. In Finland we have a few camera shops, whics are naturally spezialised on mechanical still cameras, and one movie gear rental shop. Maybe some one of these could help me but in meantime (while I find the place an money) can anybody suggest anythin what I could do my self?

 

Final question: can anyone tell me what kind of oil I shoul put in these cameras?

 

All input is appreciated!

Sewing machine oil, free from acids and resins, one or two drops in each bore, run camera slow
