Hallo cinematographers.
I have been following this forum for a while, but this is my first post here.

 

I found a Bolex H16 REX3 that works flawlessly, but it came with a Rex-O-Fader installed which I want to get rid of, but it seems I'm not able to.
I proceeded following the installing instructions (in reverse) by unscrewing the locking screw and the rewind handle, but the Rex-O-Fader doesn't come out, since is kept in place by the small cog or sprocket where the rewind handle is screwed in.
From what I can understand by watching at pictures on the web (Rex-O-Fader instructions don't help) the cog should stay screwed on the rewind handle (which seems it is a special handle and not the normal one).
In my case instead, the cog stays screwed on the rewind spindle, where it seems is stuck.
After removing the Rex-O-Fader cover (by removing the four small screws) I unsuccessfully tried to unscrew the cog (turning clockwise, of course), also with the aid of pliers, but of course I didn't dare to apply too much force, fearing to damage the cog itself or the motor spring.

 

Anybody can help me?

thanks

Livio
