Just got a Bolex SB and it seems to work fine except for the footage counter doesn't reset or move. Is there a simple way to get this thing moving again? Would oiling the camera have any effect on this?

Thanks!

Actually, now the counter went from 23 to 10. Maybe it's only mildly stuck.

One more thing... the guy I bought it from said the camera was serviced 2 years ago and then went into storage almost right after. He said everything checked out then.

Also, does 2 years in storage warrant another servicing or is it probably alright to shoot with? Seems fine except for the footage counter.
