Hello, Having a problem with ripped sprockets when trying to advance film. The rewind lever is not moving smoothly all the time. Someimes it moves freely then hangs up and is extemely rigid suddenly. So at random intervals is causes too much tension and rips sprockets when advancing film. (The rewind knob does not move properly in either direction.) Anyone know a possible cause and a fix for this issue? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
Hello, I am searching for help: What could cause extreme stiffness in rewind lever? There is too much tension and causing ripped sprockets, therefore not allowing for full frame advancement of film. I can move advance lever maybe half-way then it rips and does not move film forward the entire frame. This happened suddenly, and again on a test roll i just tried. But not on every frame. Also, worth noting- the rewind lever does not move smoothly in any direction now, even to rewind. Any suggestions gratefully welcomed! thanks
