Recapping services masterlist

I thought it'd be helpful to have a one-stop list of where to find people offering recapping services in different areas. I will start the list with what I know and researched, but feel free to add below your service details and I'll add them to this post. Also if you have stopped offering this service, please notify here and the list will be corrected.

Jope has a repair people thread, but it has winded down sometime on 2016. Suffice to say some of these users do general Amiga and other old computer repair, but the goal for this thread is mainly about recapping surface mount technology motherboards. Also I plead to maintain the top post updated as often as people tell me they offer services.

If you want me to add information, please state your location (city and country) so I can add it on the respective area, and if you only take jobs from your country or if you are willing to work internationally. You can do so on this thread or send me a PM.
Likewise, if you want me to remove your name from it, let me know.

(Jope, if you think this should be merged with your other thread, let me know, or we can swap one for the other)

Good stuff, thanks It's a good list that could be added to the existing sticky so it's easy to find.

I've been keeping a list myself of people who have been recommended for Amiga repairs: http://www.robthenerd.com/amiga/repairers

It includes the types of work they do, and there are some on there who do SMT that could be added to your list here.

Also, Scotland is still part of the UK for now at least So there might not be a need for two separate headings.

Just wanted to give a +1 for Steve - he recapped my new 1200 at the weekend, and also found and fixed an intermittent audio problem I didn't know I had. Very nice work

I noticed that this thread was a bit old, but I think the "recapping" title tends to rank it quite highly in search engines versus the other thread (when one searches for "Amiga recapping").

If they don't have to be EAB users, then I would highly recommend Anthony Hoffman in New Zealand--excellent, meticulous work!

Granted, international shipping isn't cheap, but I can personally vouch for how key he was in repairing and recapping my A4000 and A3000 motherboards (even finding and repairing an audio issue on my A4000 that I wasn't aware of), as well as recapping my A3640 (including upgrading it to v3.2), and an A3630 recap.

He's pretty busy, but he does an amazing job, thoroughly checking and noting his work, and his prices are very reasonable for the level of expertise he has and work he puts in.

His website and contact info are below:
