    I have a 1949 Buescher 205 that needs such. Suggestions?

    I expect to pay $100 to $120 for this sort of work in my area. This would include chem cleaning, and maybe even some minor de-denting.

    I just paid $25.00 for chemical clean, corks, felts, alignment and 1 dent removed! The work was done by a retired trumpet tech in his home workshop.
    I am very happy with the work. I am sure this is the exception not the norm.

    Maybe I should raise my prices.

    Only if you want people coming to your house.
