Mount tuning service near Sydney?

Hi,

I set aside some cash for a used EQ mount for some basic DSLR imaging and have come into an EQ5 with dual motors from a kind forum member.

I think the mount needs a bit of TLC (regrease etc) and it'd cost me a fair bit of time and expense in tools\supplies to do so.

I was wondering if there were any EQ mount servicing services around Sydney? Just want to compare the cost of DIYing it vs the cost of paying someone who knows better!

I've done a IIS forum search but couldn't see anything.

Thanks,

Richard
