I wasn't talking specifically about your situation, just the situation of using a retired guy in general.

Wow, Steve... you are easily influenced. :laugh:
Mine did.:D Fred installed a Maxwell screen on my Chamonix 45N-1 a few years ago and did a great job. Bill suggested Fred due to proper shimming needed. Fred did it properly.

I plan to use 45PSS for the Graflex SLR overhaul.
I've had two Century Graphics CLA'ed and repaired by 45PSS and they both came back working great. One had a badly bent bed hinge and he was able to straighten it out and get everything aligned perfectly. Prices were very reasonable, and communication via email was excellent, turn around time was less than estimated. You can find 45PSS over on Graflex.org.
