there are many who can do this for you. I have had great luck with Camera
Solutions in Portland Oregon and Custom Camera Craft in Portland though Bill
at CC is 80+ and sometimes a bit slow, he was trained pre WW2 by Leitz and
Rollei and if he can not find a part he will make one in his machine shop.

Last CLA I had done (IIIf RD no ST) ran $219 for the body and about $100 for
a Summitar.

Good luck  Mark
