Dear Jack,

Your gear was highly recommended to us. It might be a little while before we jump to purchase but we may be assembling parts of the nose soon.

Subject: Re: [c-a] Nose strut spring

John, what the front end needs is dampening; stiffer springs alone will not help. There is nothing in the current design to stop stored energy from a compressed spring from being transmitted back into the suspension system. Once the cycle of repeated oscillations starts, it's almost impossible to stop it. This is from just one bump. Any successive bumps, if timed just wrong will add more energy into the existing one and compound an already bad situation. Repeated hits of expansion joints are just the right thing for exaggerating this nightmare.
Last year I spotted what I know to be a solution. A small nitrogen gas filled cylinder with an adjustable concentric coiled spring. Where? On a mountain bike! The whole unit couldn't be more than five inches long; perhaps 1.5 inches in OD.

This message documents a problem that is solved by the internal shock absorber In the NL1 noselift. (from Jack Wilhelmson).

Thanks for the response, Jack. I enjoyed watching my nose gear go up and down smoothly, last night. ……. Now I can finish the stretched nose. I'm sure glad I decided to do this with the nose cone off. It made it so simple to match drill through the NG 30 plates, etc. …... Thanks for a good design, and a smooth installation.

Don't know if I told you but I've installed the unit I got from you and it works great. The gear is real smooth with your unit.

Dear Jack

First, let me tell you how I am glad to have installed your gear module in my VEZ, it works perfectly and it ads so much ease to use the plane! I am still interested in the auto retract system.

Got the lift on Friday (as predicted) and am very pleased. You do good work, Jack. What an impressive unit. Good show old chap. Thanks again.

Dear Jack,

It is once again time to purchase another EZ nose landing gear-NG6A, an automatic retraction system, with the AEX option, and an NG6A for $1814 like I did last month. I am mailing the check to you tomorrow.

Hope you're doing well. I guess a couple more Berkut guys have ordered your gear system. I have installed two of the units you send me in the Berkut's I'm building, but I haven't put the one in my EZRG yet. Hope to get it done before Sun&Fun. Also, I have made a mold for covering the mechanism and the NG 30's. I'll be happy to make covers for anyone using your system. The cost would probably be $100. Thanks again for your help. The system look like it will work great in the Berkut.

I think you can rest assured that your noselift and the fine development work that went into it are well appreciated by those who have purchased it. I also believe that is true of many who have not (yet). There are others, as you know, who market similar products, and they participate in the Cozy forum. Most folks don't want to step on any toes, and are very diplomatic. That's a good thing. There's no doubt in my mind that you offer the best of the lot, in your nose lift, and I am certain that many others feel the same way. The only reason I could think of NOT to use yours, might be to save a few bucks, but I think most builders are more quality-oriented. I hope you sell plenty more of 'em, and you can bet that I will do my part, if asked, to explain the reasons I chose yours in the first place, and why I'm very satisfied with it, after-the-fact. If you are ever asked to provide the name and contact info of a customer, feel free to give out mine. I'd be happy to talk to any prospective buyer about your stuff.

I removed my manual Brock nose gear assembly and installed Jack Wilhelmson's electric nose lift in my Cosy Classic last June. The total additional weight was 4 lbs over the Brock unit. I used a double universal and bracket to bring the manual gear extension shaft though the same hole in the instrument panel as the original Brock crank. Retrofit was a clean and simple bolt in. I am very pleased with this beautifully engineered lift.

I think I mentioned to you that I originally purchased the Noselift because of chronic left shoulder pain from 10 years of lifting my Long EZ. I was at the point of having to face the end of my EZ career, not to mention my absence from the golf course. Now after using the Noselift for two years my shoulder has mended, I can continue the enjoyment of my Long EZ and my golf game is improving. It should be a no-brainer for all canard drivers to install the Noselift to eliminate the possibility of physical injury. If I added up the cost of medical bills and the amount of Advil I have taken over the years, it would exceed the cost of your wonderful product. Thanks again and as we say on the links, "You da man".

I wanted to tell you how pleased I was of the rotary canopy latch. It is well designed, well built, and easy to install. I retro fitted it in a Varieze. Works great and looks better than the old method.
