I've always sent my Bolex gear back to Switzerland for modification/service.
Shipping is not too expensive, and you are guaranteed top quality work.
Make sure you fill out the customs details correctly though - it's a temporary export.

I have tried other technicians (not in the uk) and been disappointed with the results.
If you are using the camera for important work and need to be certain that it has been serviced properly I would recommend the factory - always been happy with their work.

In the end, I sent my camera to Roger Sharland in France. Excellent as always, very reasonable. If anybody wants his address for bolex servicing/repair please PM me.(or alternatively http://www.roger-sharland.co.uk/ )
