Is it possible use a cable release for single frame feature on a Bolex H8 Rex4 with Rexofader?
The Rexofader prevents operation because:
adapter like third version of this image:

I can't mount it upside down because there is the lower part of Rexofader.

The second version, that I also have, not fit well, for the same reason.
At the bottom of the Rexofader there is a small hole, where the release cable can screw, but the internal thread of my cable can't push the switch to the end.
Perhaps my version, original Bolex, has the thread too short, but I think if it were longer it could break.
 
What do you think?
Thank you.

I solved with a release cable with very long internal thread (original Bolex), screwing it in lower hole of the Rexofader. :)
