Default Drake r-8 alignment needed

Hello.
I was wondering If anyone could suggest a private party or business that can give my Drake R-8 a look over and alignment?
The alignment is slightly off but the radio still functions well.
Thank you
Steve

Universal Radio in Ohio--not all that far from the old Drake location--might do the work for you. They sold a ton of the receivers back when.

Have you seen this list of repair techs on eHam?

I remember Universal Radio had mentioned a repair service in their catalog when I first started getting them, but I think that stopped a long time ago. No mention of it in years.
