    Who repairs Speed Graphics?

    I have a Speed Graphic I bought and the focal plane shutter is slow and some speeds such as 1/60 don't work. Can anyone recommend someone to repair it? I tried SK Grimes with no luck. Thanks.

    Hmm. Didn't see Speed Graphic listed but I did see he is an independent Leica repair person who is quite a bit closer than some of the others I have used in the past.

    Look at the picture. Interesting that you'd be contradicting folks when you have nothing more to offer.

    Good luck Mr B. A working focal plane shutter is a very useful thing. Makes barrel lens use a breeze!

    I was not intending to contradict you. I do apologize if that was how you felt.
