    I wasn't talking specifically about your situation, just the situation of using a retired guy in general.

    But having the experience for several years now of working with several old and frail people (for some reason I seem to be a magnet for the old tymers who just can't retire)... the incidence of forgetfullness and error is indeed much higher than one would expect. The benefit, though... these guys have "seen it all" and have a wealth of historical inforamtion in their heads.

    Ok, Fred Lustig is off my list for everything.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Mine did. Fred installed a Maxwell screen on my Chamonix 45N-1 a few years ago and did a great job. Bill suggested Fred due to proper shimming needed. Fred did it properly.

    Fred Lustig worked on my speed a few years back, and did a great job, though was a bit expensive.
    However, dealing with him was a bit informal, and while I have nothing against him, and he did a really great job for me,
    I was worried that he would die halfway through the repair of my gear or something.

    I plan to use 45PSS for the Graflex SLR overhaul.

    I've had two Century Graphics CLA'ed and repaired by 45PSS and they both came back working great. One had a badly bent bed hinge and he was able to straighten it out and get everything aligned perfectly. Prices were very reasonable, and communication via email was excellent, turn around time was less than estimated. You can find 45PSS over on Graflex.org.
