I found this quite well done video review of the Bolex 18-5 on youtube. Definitely worth watching for anyone interested in this machine:

I've seen this video in the past, and considering he wasn't familiar with it's operation, learned how to use it pretty quickly. But then again it's a Bolex and they are simple to operate. At least the auto-thread machines are ha!
