    I'll second that - I replaced the seals on my own C3 with Jon's materials. Recommended.
    Regards,

    Hi kfleming
    If you get in to Seattle, I have used Cameratechs in Ballard. I don't know if they have expertise with the Mamiya TLR's, but they do great work on my Hassablads. I live on Vashon so it is only a 40 min trip for me.

There are camera repair facilities in Seattle, but my original post reflects the fact I'm leery of their expertise with older gear. For example, a few years ago one company told me they no longer worked on Nikon F's because the only staffer who knew anything about them had retired. However, Thanks to the Internet and the experience of members of APUG, it's possible to locate the repair shops that still have the requisite expertise.

    RMD: Thanks for that tip about the shutter release. I'll look for that.

    Mongo141: Thanks for the steer toward Koh's.

    Michael,

    Thanks for that recommendation for CameraTechs. I haven't used them, but in the past I have checked out their website for their list of used equipment.
    I looked at it again tonight after reading your post, and noted the long list of used Hasselblad gear they have for sale. Looks like they have a deep involvement with Hasselblad users.

    I decided to ship the C3 to Carol Miller since I also had an Ilex shutter that needed some work.

    As for Seattle, we do go over there to visit family. We have to plan, however, on a 2 to 2.5 hour trip each way. We can either drive all the way down to Olympia and then north to Seattle, or we can drive to Bainbridge Island or Kingston and take a ferry. Each option takes about the same amount of time--but the ferry sure is a lot more fun and relaxing.

    I know what you mean, the boat ride really breaks up my commute. I work in Lakewood (SW of Tacoma) and live on the north end of Vashon. That 15 min ferry ride helps decompress.

    Sorry to revive an old thread with my first post but I had a few questions.
    I checked the sites recommended in this thread and emailed a few as well. Does anybody have a recommendation of somewhere I could source a film advance lever and a WLF. I watch the big auction site like it might run away, but I would like to find something that I can buy immediately.

    kfleming, Did you get your C3 back? How did it turn out? Carol Miller's prices seem pretty reasonable, I wish she wasn't back logged.

    On a side note. Jon Goodman sells a great product and he is a great guy to talk to. I owe him a few kudos for being more than helpful.

    Welcome to APUG as well as the Jon Goodman appreciation thread. Unfortunately all my C-3, C-33 links/resources are stuck in my dead Mac.
