Recommendations for repairs in Europe?

Hey guys!

I think my Leica iif is overdue for some new curtains! I've patched them a little with liquid electrical tape, but I'd like to get them properly fixed. Additionally the flash sync isn't working

Does anyone have any recommendations for repairers within the EU?

I was considering sending to cameraworks, but I know they have a backlog, and with the current brexit situation, I'm not sure I want to risk having to pay aditional import tax when getting my camera back.

Interested too. Sent my Leica II to a British repaiman who warped the soft body and undertensioned the curtains. Not sending it there again or anywhere else in the UK so looking for recommendations in the EU to fix a real ealy Leica II

there is a very VERY good technician in Spain:

Juan Gambin
Plaza del Salvador, 3 (Frente a la Catedral)
03300 Orihuela

I think their workshop is actually in this address:
Albatera, 11
03350 Cox

[email protected]
+34966751264 Tel-Fax
+34966742940 Tel-Fax

I have sent them a few Leicas and lenses and everything went very well and fast.
