Introduction

In the following list I will mention some addresses to send your Rolleiflex SL 66 for a CLA (Clean, Lubricate and Adjust). Only repair shops that have indicated they work on the SL 66 line of cameras are listed here.

The names were put forward by members of the Rollei List, the Rollei Users Group and other reliable friends with first hand experience. I have no relationship with any of the repair shop on this list, except that I am a patron of some of them. Some shops are well established and have a splendid reputation backed by a great number of loyal patrons. From time to time new repair shops are added. Occasionally one is deleted. If you want to know why an entry was dropped, contact me. Most of the time the repairman retired or passed away. The alphabetical order is by the first significant word of the company name or by surname of a person if no company name is known.

Off course there will be others who would do a good job on your SL 66. I suggest that you send your camera to a person whith ample experience in servicing SL 66’s. They are quite complex cameras.

I am in more or less regular contact with some of the listed repair shops. I know that others are still in business. From some I have not heard since being recommended. That can be many years ago. After some entries I have added a request for information. I fear those shops are closed. If you should find out that one is still open, a message to me will be very much appreciated. It will be a good idea to visit the websites and to mail or call the repair shop first to check the services on offer and the present address, before sending any equipment. Any particulars I know are added to their entry in the list. If you feel you should contact me before or after a repair, please do not hesitate to do so. To re-assure everyone: this hardly ever happens.
