Kanto Camera's instagram (repairs and cool stuff)

For you folks that don't have instagram, or just haven't heard of this account -

Kanto camera has a pretty great instagram account which is filled with photos of their repairs and repaints, and cool stuff too. Not too often you find behind-the-scenes photos from a real camera repair place.

As an example: here's a photo from them of a fixture to correctly align the framelines on a Leica:

I follow their account and love seeing the work they do.
They always post great shots of their repaints, and great behind the scenes of cameras being repaired.

Kanto Camera is such a good shop. They can do almost anything (even regrind the glass of a badly scratched lens). My M6 and 50 Summicron are being fixed up there at the moment.
