Some time back I bought a lovely black Pentax K. I sent it off for a CLA but unfortunately a "very fine spring" snapped. I've managed to pick up a "spares" K but I am having trouble finding a tech willing to take the job on. Any suggestions?

Thanks, Kris.

Can't recommend him from any experience, but this guy might be up to it

Asahi Photo in Brentford maybe?
K-3 II, K-3 and a K-70 from SRS (having now relegated the K-30 /"K-50" to a backup body), & some Sigma and Pentax lenses (and a lot of old 35mm gear!)

Ref Asahi Photo - they have removed the phone number from the website, but it's 02082328111, and the guy to whom to speak is (or at least was) Pramath.
