telerolleiflex separation repair

Anyone know where to have a Tele-Rolleiflex sent for cleaning and re-cementing lens elements that show major balsam separation?

Neither Focal Point nor SK Grimes seem to do this anymore...

The 135mm Sonnar still renders photos that are quite amazing, even with heavy separation!

Thanks. I’ve emailed them for a quote. I was sad to discover my Tele Rollei has suddenly developed pretty acute separation. Fingers crossed, it could use a service anyway.
