    T model Rollei on it's way back.

    Hey guys,

    Got an email from Harry Fleenor last night. My T model Rollei it's in it's way back from CLA treatment. I can hardly wait to see it. I'll keep you posted.

    Just curious how long you were waiting for it. I just got yesterday from Krikor Maralian a 3.5E that he received from me on 12/24, overhauled, and mailed back to me 12/28.

    I had Harry Fleenor tidy up my Rolleiflex K4B last year. It took 10 weeks.

    He installed a Maxwell Screen and did a nice job on the rest of it. Very pleased.

    Nick- out of curiosity, what did you have done to it and how much did it cost?

    Very cool! I had mine done by Midstate Camera over in Rhode Island and it worked out terribly for me. I had to send it back to them twice. It is still not right. The self timer, which worked before I sent the camera in, now often randomly seems to jam the camera up.

    About 12 weeks. The 9 week marker was on December 20.

    My camera didn't have whole lot of issues. It had the typical issue of laboring on slow speeds and jamming on occations. lack of a good lube and cleaning.The light meter on this model is very bizarre.

    Sure, don't mind telling you that I paid him $325 + $25 shipping. I had mentioned to him that the self-timer worked intermittently at best, and that the winding mechanism was rough, but that a CLA was likely called for. His invoice says: "Repair complete shutter + replace main spring + self-timer; repair complete transport + adjust the door; check focus."

    The meter is working and pretty accurate as far as I can tell, so he didn't touch it. (He has told me in the past that there are no parts for E meters anymore; he has parts for the F meters still.) Also, the glass is clean so he didn't open up the lenses at all -- I'm actually not so sure he works on the lenses.

    This may be gratuitous, but he has told me that he doesn't think much of the T model. I've seen that said by others too.

    One last thing -- interestingly, my camera had been worked on at some point in the past by Harry Fleenor since it has his sticker inside.

    Krikor also managed to fix and CLA my Cord V within about 3 days of receiving it. I was leaving the country at the end of Dec and he had it back to me with 2 weeks to spare. Definitely strongly recommended.

    I just got an email back today from Harry, after inquiring about him working on a 3.5F I've got coming. He said he's running about 10 weeks on repairs ATM.
