Hi!

Can you guys suggest a good place for Master Film Steadicam service in Europe?
Aside from the routine service I would also like to have some tune up for the Master vest and fix the Master arm- I noticed last week that forearm's cable inside the arm, that connects the springs has this first phase "twing"- like when you see from a movies, when a character is hanging on a rope and the rope starts losing it's threads "twing" by "twing" until the character falls down- so I have the same thing with my arm. I haven't noticed it before until the last week, so I don't know if it's some months old or one day old, and if it's gonna last for another week or maybe another year- anyways it needs to be fixed, before the last "twing" happens and I get face-smacked with my arm.. ouch..
And then there are some other tune ups that need to be done.

So has anyone any recommendations where I could send it in EU that has necessary tools and spare parts?

All the best!
