While the method behind the switch is somewhat clever, it is highly overpriced, many places, selling for $30. This is ridiculous for what the unit is. If you really are uncomfortable with switching a deck another way, here’s a way to do it right in front of the spect. In my opinion, save your money and use an organized pocket
The main gimmick in this effect is very useful tool for the card performer. It can be used in many different tricks and can produce some nice results. Find out what any chosen card is without marks of any kind and keep the second part of trick (end revalation) as a back-up to a card trick gone wrong. If you own the trick, you know what I mean. All in all, if you don’t use the trick as sold, you will be able to use pieces of it individually for your own devised effects.
Hello Andy.. What a delight to visit your site on rainy or snowy days. It always perks me up. Besides your great collection of Magic..the true magic is your wonderful “British” accent and the entertainment value you put into your video’s. You communicate very well with your audience and try hard to bring entertainment value into your act. I have watched them all and never do I see you come near a battle of wits with your audience. You appear to be their friend and want to entertain them. Thanks….for your wonderful site, I have increased my knowledge of magic and props much. Keep up the great work.
I’ve always liked the idea behind the Money Maker, Denver Mint, and all the money printing variations. But wouldn’t it be nice to sometimes print something different. This Preston Printer is large enough for silks, legal documents, predictions, and almost any small piece of paper or silk you can think of. It has 7 feet of roller space so you could easily do 2 or 3 changes.
It looks solid, more like a real printing press, rather than a toy. Well made and lots of potential for the performer!
This may appear a simple effect but once you own one and know it’s method, your’re in for a surprise. The method, though “standard” is beautifully disguised in this piece and it will leave those in the “know” scratching their heads. The operation is simple and practically automatic. The workmanship is, without saying, superb.
I have been performing this effect for 30 years, and I still think it is one of my favorite effects. Done slowly and deliberately it is just amazing to the audience as the cards slowly but surely change from one card to the other.
To do it cleanly it certainly takes practice, but the sleights involved are very basic. A novel twist and I think a worthy enhancement to the basic Wild Card is ESPecially Wild.
The boxes are very well made from select hard woods. They are made so they can be handled by the magician alone. No assistant needed. I cannot say enough about this Viking product. They are becoming harder to find so if you have ever thought of adding a nested box routine to your show this is the one to own. The handling is remarkabley easy and this one will keep them at the ultimate WOW factor. Andy’s pictures really don’t do the justice to the beauty of these fine pieces or craftsmanship.
I have owned a number of versions of this effect – but this is by far the best made, easiest, and most convincing – well apart from the original of course! Thanks to Young, Slim Howie at the Trickery for advising me on this one!
The bolt can be examined both before and after, the bolt visibly unscrews itself even with the magician away from the bolt. The bolt can be covered by a glass dome. You can even look inside the case and it just looks like a simple close-up case.
This is the best item I’ve seen from India to date – very good indeed.
If I had any complaints at all – and I’d be pushing myself – the box itself although it looks nice is quite cheap in construction. It would not hold up to be thrown around too much. But at the price point, I’m not sure what else could be done.
If you’ve been burnt with this effect before, now is the time to try again. I really love this effect!
