It's been awhile since I've been down that way.

Monday was our anniversary so I took the wife up to Pacific City, and from there followed the coast line up to Tillamook. I brought a film camera and ran a roll through it.

Nice job. Tricky by the sounds of it, but very satisfying in the end, I am sure.

I found two of these in my parents house when a kid. One was complete with flash unit, bulbs, and original box. Of course none of the photos survived because they were lousy, all because I tried to take closeups. Not the fault of the camera, yet the reason it ended up in a garage sale. 😃

Between the research and the collection of restored artifacts, you should have a small museum on display.

I have a friend who's wife is from Puerto Rico. They lived in California, and when they moved to Oregon they went in to get their driver's license changed. The lady behind the counter kept arguing that she was not a U.S citizen. It took a supervisor to get her to believe it. 🤣 😂 🤣

Cool! A 1:1 Gundam! While I build automotive models, my oldest built these. They are simply amazing with their fully articulated joints. The finger and thumb joints blow me away with the engineering that went into them.

I have been "listening" to this discussion, as I do whenever pricing for repairs, in particular, cla's, come up.

So Eric,
The gentleman your sending your camera to that lives in Oregon. Is that in the Portland area, and does he also work at one of the shops that are local? I am asking because I live in Newport, have heard members recommend a certain shop in Portland quite a few times, and is relatively close by (135 miles)

Reason I'm asking is that I have seen posted, prices for cla's( I believe his name is also Eric,) that everyone sends their Pentax to, have cost. There have been other shops recommended as well, and what they charged. One of which breaks down what all their cla entails. Long story, shorter. I called the shop in Portland that was recommended and asked how much a cla would cost on my wife's ME super. It was still in good working condition, just had not been used in 20 years. I was quoted $250, which is much much higher than the others.

I honestly believe that these repairmen dont really want to take on the job, and quote an exorbitant price just for that reason. I have worked with different businesses in the past that have done that same thing. When someone does pay the price, I have heard them say "I need to raise my price again". They really just don't want to do the work.

I second that. Just ordered five more for different cameras I have. They even come with a tool to help get the old glue off.

Number 2 and 6.
I really like #6, one small suggestion that would make it a home run, in my humble opinion, is shrinking the front logo small enough that it would look good where a pocket might be.
