This Bolex SBM I haven't shot with yet... it looks as though the shutter sticks a little. When I look into the front without a lens when the camera is running, when it stops the shutter kind of stays midway down in the frame at an angle. Is this a sign that I might need a lube job. Hopefully nothing serious? The camera has barely been used, the spring motor seems strong. They used it a few times with a bolex motor. Inside looks immaculate.

Also, could I be crazy but it looks like some moisture forms on the glass in front after I run it for a while. Looks like I breathed on one little spot at the right side, (my left)... but I swear I didn't! And always that little spot. What's that about?

Also, is a lube job worth paying $300 dollars for or is it something that can be easily done, if one is careful? What could go wrong?

Any help appreciated. Thanks!
