Hi Joe,

I would recommend contacting WZ1M.  He is a member of this list and
will likely see your post.  I have heard great things about his
rewinding skills, and think he would be a good choice for the job.
Gary's email is xfrmrs - at - roadrunner.com.  Replace the "- at -"
with the correct symbol we all know.

BTW Gary, you are welcome to describe your services to this list
anytime.  We always welcome those vendors that offer services to us
boatanchor lovers.
