    Anyone had a Super Ikonta repaired recently? Needs new bellows as a starting point, also wants a CLA and lens clean.
    My usual repairers (Black on White, PJ Camera repair) have both declined the work due to parts

    I have has some items cleaned/serviced by 'Protech' in Sussex (around the Uckfield-Crowborough area). (www.protech.co.uk) They will tackle most things and even some digital as well. A one man operation but his work is good.

    I didn't see this earlier, there's a couple at camera fairs with a box full of original bellows for various120/35mm folding cameras quite inexpensive (£2ish). They are quite easy to replace. I'd guess the box came from Custom (Camera) B.ellows who had a stand at Wolverhampton camera Fair a couple of years ago, (the couple are involved in organising the fairs).

    I'm surpised noone has mentioned Miles Whitehead, he has repaired assorted Pentax & Olympus Cameras for me as well as CLA'ing Large format shutters. Very reasonable prices too.

    Misses mentioned she used www.youcamfix.co.uk and seemed to do the job.
    Believe they are a courier, so dont think matters where you currently are.

    Is there any benefit or disadvantage to courier services?
    Or is it just down to reputation at the end of the day

    I have recently had great service from Linhof Studio (http://www.linhofstudio.com/), for Copal Shutter repairs on a Schneider LF lens.

    They seem to have a supply of OEM (original equipment manufacturer) replacement parts which they use to replace failed components

    The phrase OEM is mired in confusion these days.
    It originally meant "100% compatible with, but manufactured by someone other than, the brand name maker" but now seems to be often used to mean "manufactured by the brand name maker".
