I agree he seems a great resource. Yes probably the last original Plaubel Makina parts on the planet. He called me today and we talked for a few minutes, he's pleasant to talk to. He was concerned about the groundglass back I sent him, he did some work on it, and replaced what i had with original Makina Plaubel ground glass. An extra charge for that but worth every single penny. He says clean bright beautiful and completely repaired so I should be very happy with his work. It's on it's way to me via USPS Priority with tracking from Staten Island. He has a very thick accent so perhaps that is why his conversations are so short.
I may have some more work for him
