If you’re in need of any advice on repairing an old camera, Ken Ruth is your man. He spent almost half an hour with me on the phone helping me think through a fix for the Rolleiflex (essentially, I need to make a very small rivet to replace one that broke) in spite of the fact that me doing the repair means no money for him. And I was referred to Ken by another great repair-man, Harry Fleenor. I guess there are fewer and fewer folks who’ll do repairs on old cameras, but the ones who’re left seem damn good.
