Hello everyone. As a new owner to a Bolex, I'm looking to have my lenses checked out and serviced.

 

Any good recommendations?

 

I see Calkovsky offers cleaning and lubricating, but that seems to be the only thing Google is turning up.

 

Am I missing something?

 

Chris

Calkovsky is an ebay reseller, who buys things cheap and sells them on with a sometimes considerable mark-up. He is not a lens technician.

 

I service them here in Australia, in the US I imagine someone like Bernie O'Doherty at Super16inc or Procam (Bolex USA) or DuAll or the like would be your best bet. Or this forum's own Jean-Louis Seguin who is not far away in Montreal - contact him at bolextech@gmail.com
