My sisters and I were just going through our late parent's things and found one of these, my father's. Several years ago I had asked him about this and we looked for it to no avail. I had used it a little back in the seventies till I purchased my own new SLR (a minolta).

Finding this gem( Whoo Turtle ), I'm wanting to have someone go through it and make it ready to run again....

Anyone have a suggestion as to who to send it to?

What's wrong with it?

The viewfinder is very dirty and I would like it gone thru by a knowledgeable person as its 60 odd years old so I can use it without worry or problem (hopefully.)

I recently had one serviced by Chris Sherlock in New Zealand. It needed rangefinder realignment and a good cleaning of the viewfinder. He did a brilliant job.
His email is:retinarepair@gmail.com
His main repairs are for Retinas, unsurprisingly.
