I have aquired a pair of Leitz 7 x 50 binoculars from WW2 era (mfg 1943)  They need extensive restoration.  Has anyone had experience with an optical repair facility that has experience with vintage binoculars, and does good work?

Thank you for the referral, I sent binoculars to Cory for repair.
 
A word of warning to anyone else looking for service - Prior to joining this forum,  I had sent a pair of WW2 Barr and Stroud binoculars to an "optical repair shop" in Texas.  Then needed cleaning and re-collimating.  After having them for 4 weeks, and 2 phone calls, he returned them as "unrepairable.  When I got them back, he had broken one of the objective lenses, while attempting to get them apart.  He turned an "okay" pair of glasses into junk. 
BEWARE the amateurs!!!!
