  1. Ouch. Watched the video. I would be very unhappy.
  2. Under promise and over deliver. This is the same old story with Van Stall. Long before Covid there was disappointed VS customers.
  3. Some prefer this website. There is accountability, something that is lacking in many places, but obviously online. There are only a few simple rules that need to be followed here.
  4. You may want to wait. There is a new version with improved gears coming soon.
  5. Nice mount. I stopped mounting deer a few years ago. Just a pile of antlers and some euro mounts.
  6. He sure can. The self service kit doesn’t get you the tooling or the main seal to change.
  7. Too bad the self service kit never addressed the most critical seal
  8. The shaft is keyed so it doesn’t spin in the pick up arm. Maybe some shafts have the threads keyed and some don’t? No big deal.
  9. Here is a VS roller from my parts. Granted it is an old part.
  10. Yup

  15. That is a heavy bird
