Please don’t go!

When I first received this jacket I asked my wife to strap it on. Then I got paranoid that she was going to leave me and go shopping whilst I was still locked in!

Very realistic, very examinable, and you can still escape with little practice.

The skill in this effect, like so many others, is selling it to the audience. But this is an easy sell!

This really is magical!

I haven’t used this for 10 years, but I still love the effect. You start with a small glass of milk and proceed to fill the next bigger one with the previous sized glass. In the end you have filled the jug from the small glass.

Then to top it off you fill every single glass with milk too! Beautiful!

One of the cheapest and best CW Effects!

I love this effect. Simple premise, but with the right routine and a few of my own extras it is great entertainment and great mystery!

It goes to show that CW does not have to charge you $3000 for a real winner!

Check out the video for my routine!

Don’t Leave home without it!

One of the few Sam Dalal props that is actually pretty good. I use this in preference to the German made cane I’ve had for years. It is longer and a bit more startling because its silver. I don’t think any of the appearing canes really look like canes, so why not produce one that looks more magical. This silver one fits the bill nicely!

Great Surprise, Nice props!

This is a great little effect, that really surprises the audience! Its a remake of an old Anverdi idea. A card is freely chosen with no force. The cards are shuffled and the spectator is asked to place cards one at a time into the box. As they do this the lid of the box suddenly closes all on its own.

The card in their hand is their card! No force, no switches, they handle the deck as they place the cards into the box and the cards are all different.

Thanks to Neil Lester for getting me a much more realistic gimmick than originally came with this effect.

Nice method and Entertaining Magic!

This is a great little kids prediction trick! I’m sure you can have some fun with the different pictures that can be created. And of course in the end you predict the exact combination of top, middle, and bottom faces that are freely selected by the audience.

Uses a well know thought out principle from the card world, and it works like a charm here!
