Welcome to the forum, I appreciate your skills as I had a friend whom repaired for 40 yrs at a Camtech in Hamilton Ontario, he recently passed and took with him a wealth of knowledge and the same appreciation as you for the film era, although he had some some disdain for the digital era he maintained his love for repair and his business never stopped. Keep up the good work,
my compliments to you sir,

Remember them well, we quite often would receive each others parts order. I love the digital era but early on in the digital age we started to see the difficulty in repairing the newer digital cameras. Computer interfaces in the late 90's became common and the cost of software and hardware made it impossible to test these cameras. Now I see both Canon and Nikon no longer sell parts to anyone other than authorized service depots. End of the age of independent local repair shops.
