    cla old lenses - who does it?

    Hi, I have several really old camera with lenses that almost work well. Kodak Pony Primos 4 & 6 4x5 and 5x7 and a Kodak No.1D 5x7.
    Who could I have service those lenses?
    Thanks.

    Lenses or shutters? If shutters, a lot of people are happy with Flutot's.

    Carol serviced a rim-set Compur for me last year and did a great job - very pleasant to talk to, helpful, and the shutter works great again. But, I thought she was scaling back her workload (or stopping altogether) for health reasons. If she's still taking new work that would be great. Last post on this thread was mid-2008:

    If it is actually the glass that needs work, the answer is that most repair people will take a lens apart in groups and clean it, very few will strip optical groups down to individual elements, and those that will do this will be very expensive.

    Let's not start any rumors. Carol is accepting work. She CLA'd a shutter for me last fall, Oct.-Nov. Go to her web page, Flutot's Camera Repair. Follow her instructions exactly. She will take your shutters and make them like new again.

    Studiocarter: You will need to remove the lenses-shutter assembly from the lens boards and then remove the lens cells from the shutter. Send the shutters to Carol Miller at Flutot's Camera Repair. GOOGLE will show you the way. Follow Carol's instructions for sending her your shutters.

    There are others who repair old shutters. Essex Camera, perhaps? I'm sure others will post names to follow up. GOOGLE will help in your search.

    I emailed her last Apr-May I think and I got my name on a waiting list. Carol took my order sometime in Aug and did a very good job. That gives you an idea of the waiting time.
