Picked up a new revy today. Well it works. Alittle different though. The shell is the soft with the new style hard lid. Its louder than the old ones and it doesn't just stop like the old ones did. This one winds down. It also seems to slow down when its running and you pour paint in it. The neck appears to be the same size as the old VL200 I had laying around. MAybe saturday I can give it a field test.
