    Speed graphic repairs on the west coast?

    Hello!

    Can anyone recomend a good shop (one thats Graflex oriented) to do some work on my Speed Graphic? Preferrably on the West Coast---California-ish? Thanks!
    I steal time at 1/125th of a second, so I don't consider my photography to be Fine Art as much as it is petty larceny.

    Speed graphic repairs on the west coast?

    Robert,

    The guides that align the front rails so they'll retract into the 'box' are worn out, causing the front standard to not to want to nest correctly. This is on an old gal, a 5x7---great camera---so I don't want to force anything! Its also 100% original so I'd like to retain it's collector's value as well as being able to use it for what it was meant for which is why I don't want to try to cobble up a repair myself(though I am a master duck tape & super gluer!) This camera deserves better.

    FWIW I called Fred and spoke with his wife, apparently he's back in business which is good news!
