Can I recommend the services of John Clark of the Woodwind Workshop, Manchester, to any UK readers of Saxquest ? He just did a marvellous job on my 1933 Buescher Aristocrat. It'd never been repadded when I bought it a few months ago and was totally worn out. A few weeks with John and it came back just about UNBELIEVABLE. John can be found at Johnny Roadhouse, The Woodwind Workshop, 123 Oxford Road, Manchester, UK - 0161 273 8040. He's also a great bloke, very knowledgeable and a real enthusiast.
