    One addition to Andy's list is Thin Film Coatings . Like Andy, I have no experience or prior dealings with these folks. They're just a link from a list of resources I keep.

    Befor SK Grimes, those lenses and shutters were new

    Jim Galvin (California) was a gentleman and a genius. He made flanges for me. He mounted old lenses into shutters. He made aluminum lens hoods. And made all sorts of adapters. He was my salvation for a decade- and very reasonably priced.

    Back about a thousand years ago, there was SPTS (Southern Photo Technical Services). They would CLA cameras and lenses, and mount and re-engineer a variety of things.

    I also remember a number of old farts that sat behind watchmaker looking counters at camera stores (real ones, with darkrooms) that could fix anything from an old tropical plate camera to the newest Canon FT...
