    Alas, I contacted S.K. Grimes a month ago about sending a lens for CLA; I was told that their technician had passed away last fall, and they are no longer servicing shutters. They suggested Carol Flutot.

    I'm very sorry to hear that, thank you for letting us know. I'm guessing it was Joel (didn't know his last name). Think I talked to him once or twice on the phone, seemed like a nice guy as well as being skilled in his craft.

    Just looked at their website, they just say that as of Oct. 5, 2018 they no longer do CLA's.

    Shutter repair will become an ongoing problem as few can or will do it.

    I know I cannot, maybe 50 years ago when my fingers were nimble and my eyes clear.

    Also doubt new shutters will be made, how long will Packard keep at it?

    There are other ways. The Jim Galli shutter is unique and easy for some, not me.

    Treasure and exercise your 'good' shutters.
