    Best CLA for Rollecord?

    I would like to have my father's Rollecord serviced and other than KEH, I do not know where to send it and what to expect in time and costs.

    Any one out there can share good expeiences with TLR wizzards?

    These are bread and butter CLA's for any good camera repair person.

    I had both my Yashicamat 124 and Rollieflex 3.5 E2 serviced in the UK. UK prices are higher but $100-$120 should be the most you'd pay unless there's serious issues.

    Krikor Marilian http://www.krimarphoto.com/ former east coast official Rollei guy- very fast- 3-4 day turn around

    Harry Fleenor http://rolleirepairs.com/ former west coast official rollei guy- very slow- 3-4 month turn around

    Mark Hansen- http://www.zeissikonrolleirepair.com/

    Paul Ebel- <paulebel44@yahoo.com> primarily known for shutters, but does Rolleis. I have a 'Flex he overhauled and it is smooth as butter...

    Cost? I can't say. I think a Rolleiflex overhaul from one of the above will start at around $200. Not certain how much cheaper a 'Cord will be.

    Another vote for Mark Hansen who CLAed a Rolleiflex and a Rolleicord for me. No complaint: good job, good communication, reasonable delay and fair price.

    In fact I sent both cameras several months they were CLAed by Paul Ebel. Draw your own conclusions...

    Kindermann here in Toronto is supposed to be class A. I've seen some of his work on Leicas and 1st rate. I've got a T that he'll be getting once my medical condition is history as it need some shutter tlc while the rest of the camera is in excellent condition.

    I just sent my Rolleicord to Zacks in RI on the recommendation of whiteymorange and jnanian. They come highly recommended from around the region.

    If you want the best, hands down, its Harry Fleenor. He's currently at 10 weeks turn time, not 3-4 months. His repair cost estimates are on his web site. Google him.

    Yes others are cheaper but take it from one with experience. You can get it done by Harry once, or from the others first then a year or so later to Harry to do all that is really needed, done better, and to be done with.

    I had my Rolleicord and a Zeiss Ikonta serviced at Midwest Camera Repair in Wyandott, MI. They did a nice job at a reasonable price. Website:http://www.midwestcamera.com/
