    Shutter repairer in UK?

    Hi All, I have just purchased a Super Angulon 90mm lens which is fitted with a Copal 0 shutter. The shutter blades and iris blades have come dislodged from their fixings. I have watched a video on Youtube about stripping the shutter down but I think that is a bit 'beyond me'. Can anyone recommend a repairer in the UK please?

    Thanks Dave

    I can recommend Newton Ellis in Liverpool. I have no connection with this company other than as a satisfied customer on 3 or 4 occasions, which included taking apart a Rollei TLR to get fungus off the lens and shutter blades.

    I'll second Newton & Ellis. Had a few jobs done by them some years ago including a Sinar/Copal shutter.

    Black on White in Bristol has repaired my Synchro Compur #0 shutter and their quoted price was less than Newton & Ellis

    Newton Ellis by a long way...................

    My experience with 'Black on White' was that they weren't interested in anything complicated and had a really small sphere in which they operated - says it all in their name, some would say.................

    Update......I used Newton Ellis and was very pleased with their service. A bit slow to tell me I had to phone them to pay by debit card but now a perfect Super Angulon.

    Cheers Dave

    Dave, great, happy that you're happy

    I'd suggest that said 'delay' may well be because of volume of work and if so, that's only a good thing imo

    regards

    I have recently had the shutter of my Kodak 203mm Ektar repaired by Hi Tech Camera Repairs of Newcastle under Lyme. They were very nice to deal with and did an excellent job.
