Hello. I'm not terribly good with my big hands. I'd like to send my Century Graphic 2x3 to someone who's known to do good work on these. I recently picked this camera up from the local shop. Are there still people out there who are known to do good work on the baby Graflex?

I need to get the lens/shutter CLA'd. Almost all the speeds sound slow for sure. Lens is Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 3.5/105 in a Synchro-Compur-P shutter.

I'd also like to make sure the Kalart is in good shape and calibrated. There's a twist on that last part: I only have a roll film back, no ground glass, so I think I need to either find a ground glass focusing screen for it or a repair person that can work with this as it is. Since I can only focus this with the Kalart, I'd like to get it looked at before I start shooting with it.

There's a Graflex RH/8 (6x9) roll film back on it, which is just how I wanted it.

Seems like he is awfully dedicated and skilled. I am going to send him my Supermatic soon.

Yeah I had already talked to him. He said he won't touch these.

I might be able to take on repair work after the first of the year but it may be June 2020 before I can.
