    I have asked Plaubel, and they told me Arlüwa Czens would be "a good alternative" to get the Makinas repaired.
    They're in Cologne, Germany - http://www.arluewa.de/cms/en/

    Arlüwa do not state to be specialized in Plaubel Makinas, Wiese in Hamburg does.

    But I admit such statement does not tell a lot, and in times as these a workshop hardly can be specialized on models any more.

    Hi
    If you don't care to ship it to New-York, I'm pretty sure that Nippon Photoclinic can do the job.

    Hi,

    I just today sent my black prewar Makina ll off to Wizcam for a cla restoration. Now that Ken Ruth has retired there are very few places that I know off to get a vintage Makina worked on. I'll let you know how the Wizcam effort goes.
    Did I mention that I really like Plaubel cameras:smile:

    I got back my late prewar Makina II from the WizCam guy on Fbay. He did a very very nice job, it runs and focuses like new! )

    Good News Robert! I bought a second repair just now from Wizcam. This one is for my Makina IIIF with F4.2 Anticomar. Works well right now but has never been serviced, And was stored in some humid conditions, has some corrosion issues. Purchased from SF Bay area. Let's see what he can do with this one.
