Repairing Kodak Anastigmat and Kodak Ektar Cine Lenses

Hi,

I have been looking everywhere and have found absolutely NOTHING on how to tear and and repair/lubricate old C and S mount cine lenses by Kodak and Schneider. These lenses aren't worth the cost of sending out, but are too expensive to toss. I'd love to learn how to work on them. If anyone has videos, manuals, advice or links to help, I'd be VERY grateful.

In the lens shown in this post, the focus is absolutely frozen with the circled screw installed, but seems fine with it removed. Since I'm not sure how the lens works, I don't know if something is frozen up inside or if the screw is supposed to be removed.

John

I have a few such lenses...somewhere, but it could be that this screw is to set a fixed focus. I have lenses which have that. If it works with loose screw (or w/o), try using it as such. But make sure it cannot fall out when focusing too close!

Unfortunately I never seen any repair manuals or instructions either. Maybe find on old or retired cine lens service tech.?
