    I've used Black on White in Bristol for 3 repairs/CLA's now, they completely strip a shutter for a CLA and rebuild it so can easily do your repair provided no parts are missing, otherwise I'd guess it depends what the shutter is.

    They were fast and their work is excellent, when I've used then. Others say the same.

    I second Black on White! I rang them and they guy I spoke to said that 99.9% of their work is digital and that they really ENJOY working on mechanical eqipment! I sent them a Copal 0 shutter that was desperate for a CLA and it came back like new!

    Same here 50 for a CLA on a very sticky shutter on a Yashica 124, and on another occasion the same for a 165mm Super Angulon.

    50 is about the minimum rate to open up anything photographic in the UK.
