Pentax 67 service in Europe?

I have been trying to find someone who can take care of my Pentax 67 that is languishing on the shelf, but I have a hard time getting into contact with repair persons to even ask whether they can do the work.

What the camera needs is a refoam and cleaning the magnets to get it up and running.

I would prefer to not have to send it off to Eric in the US (it's a heavy camera) so ... does anyone know of someone reputable in Europe?

Possibly Asahi Photo

The 67 is/was a professional camera so might be serviced by someone like Sendean

It doesn't sound like your repair should be too drastic (famous last words). Instructions for the magnet are here

Thanks for the tips - I'll have a look at the various options.

I know it doesn't seem like a big deal cleaning it out, but I prefer to not botch the camera up.
