Hi Harry.

You might recall that, 5-6 years ago, you overhauled a non-metered 3.5F for me. 
 It's still working beautifully except for 1/500 having somehow lost the 
booster spring. 

Not that this is any problem.  I haven't had a need to use 1/500 and probably 
never will.  It recently won me a few competition awards and that's good enough 
for me.

But, I'm not writing about that camera.  Some years ago I gave my daughter a 
rather nice MX when she was taking a photography class.  She used it for 
awhile, then put it away, and now she's thinking about using it again.  That 
one always did react poorly to lack of use and I suspect that I should spring 
for an overhaul before she starts using it again.  Back in the dark ages I 
bought that one out of an estate down in Florida and it looked as though it 
hadn't been used in years.  As I recall, it also appeared to have been 
purchased in Germany, although I can't remember why I thought that without 
looking at it.  I haven't seen it for years.

What are you currently charging for the overhaul of an Automat MX?  She would 
probably not need much more than a standard overhaul.  I could probably tell 
you more about it when she gets it in her hands.  She recently moved and it's 
now in the process of being sent to her.

I hope that all is going well with you.
