For Aaton, I would try Alan Giles of Camera Engineering in the U.K. He 
was the best and dealt with my old Aaton (Ser# C-322) and did amazing 
work with it. I know he had the old boards done (he has an electronics 
wizard who found the blown components.) He also used to manufacture many 
wonderful accessories. I don't know if he is still working on Aatons, 
but he was the guy.

For Bolex, I believe Chambliss is still around,
You might want to check my classic camera page which has links.
