    I just bought a huge... make that HUGE! lot of photo and darkroom equipment on eBay. Included in it is an old rolleicord that has "shutter problems". I know Grimes is the place to go for LF shutters (and spanner wrenches!). Where do/would you go for TLR service? The only place I have ever had MF gear serviced is Mamiya, but that was Mamiya gear. Thanks!

    This is kind of a cop-out answer, but search "Rollei Repair" on photo.net and you'll come up with a bunch of answers. I've heard good things about Yertes (sp?) and the $150 guy (not sure of his name), but my info is so vague that I would rather suggest a search which will give you names, emails, websites, and phone numbers.

    bmac, i got a rolleicord v from a guy in SF and had it serviced close to home in mountain view. int'l camera technicians. they're at 720 villa street, right off castro. they overhauled my 'cord for about $200 and i was very pleased. it was my first experience at having a camera worked on.. scary at first, but now i realize the value. they were very booked up.. it took 2 weeks to get my camera back, but they were honest about that and had my camera ready when they said it would be.
