    Kodak Medalist Repair

    Who would be a good person to send one of those old Kodak Medalist 6x9 rangefinder cameras to for a good service and CLA?

    Frank Marshman, CameraWiz, 1-800-471-8133. He does excellent work at a reasonable price, can fabricate parts if necessary, and in my experience won't charge you for something he can't fix, even if he puts some time into it.

    Might be worth a call to see whether Ken Ruth is still working on Medalists:

    Ken Ruth at Bald Mountain is known as a specialist for Medalists.

    I've never used him, but have always wanted a Medalist II.

    Here is the link:

    Ken Ruth is known particularly for converting Medalists to 120, if you want to make that move.

    I talked to Ken Ruth today. He still does repair and service the Medalist. To convert it to take 120 film it has to be taken apart so much that all the other cleaning and such would be part of that conversion process. Or, he can take it apart to just clean and service it. Amounts to almost the same thing either way.
    Don't know what I'll do just yet.
    thanks for the help.
