I have had him work wonders, and very quickly, with a TLR that hit the ground face first (in its case, thankfully) when the old leather strap gave way. Now I have a Yashicamat that I picked up cheaply over the weekend that needs his attention. I'm debating whether to send it to him, even though he'd have it working better than new (as his site says, maybe he built it originally!). But the uncertainty of communications does trouble me.
pesphoto, have you tried Zack's Camera Repair, right in Providence? zackscamerarepair.com You might want to deal with someone local -- and I'm considering using them myself if they work on these.
