Eddie and Greg are in Oklahoma. Since Debs aircraft moved to Texas, I'm not aware of any Franklin specialists in the Northwest. Gene Hamilton. up the Washougle (sp?) river canyon, used to do some great work, but he's probably in his 80's.

Gene is not taking any work these days. He is a great resource on franklins. I'm not sure of his age, but he is interesting to talk to. He is looking to sell his home and business if anyone is interested. It's on a 1500 ft grass strip in the foothills outside of Washougal WA. Last price I heard was around 300K which included house, shop, hangar, and all his machine tools, and a spare stinson fuselage. He might have dropped the price since then. He told me he would like to sell the whole package together to someone who would continue the business. Very pretty country up there with a view of the cascades.
Mark and 8408K
