Looking through a November, 1972 list sent out by Alan that is in my collection, this item is among the several mini-magic items first sold by him. I believe that was the first year he started his business. I don’t see this one as part of his line of children effects, though the instructions did include a children’s routine, nor one of his famous painted items. It would have fitted more with his teak line, but teak was not used in the wooden board. Nevertheless, it is a very nice close-up effect using a standard gaff method in coin magic, but with a great new twist and presentation.
The effect involves a nice transposition of a middle mounted disc from silver to gold. All is beautifully crafted with precision gimmicks made of either aluminum or brass. The effect is rather easy to perform. The instructions are detailed in the handling – you start and end clean. This is another winner from Alan and glad I was able to obtain it in such mint condition, considering its age.
Richard Sanders is a prolific and creative magician who has released some outstanding effects in recent months. This one is really fun to perform and is a mind boggler to the spectator. Bills instantly change denominations right before the spectators’ eyes; the performer counts the bills fairly to show them as being ordinary.
Richard is a great teacher and he goes to great lengths in his DVD instructions to explain each detail of making the bills and then covers several routines to perform, going through every move and detail. Making the bills is no big deal, and is a one-time deal. Then you’re ready for performing without any big setup.
I highly recommend it if you like money magic and like to carry magic with you to perform on a moment’s notice. Great for performing at the bar or on the street or a night out with friend. They’ll remember you with this one.
When George first introduced these I liked them, but found the flint too small. At some point in the last eight years he has changed the flint mechanism to be larger and much easier to work with. This is now easily the best fire wallet I have used. The leather is very luxurious and the fire section is securely held in a metal pocket which not only protects the wallet, but also keeps the lighter fluid from evaporating too quickly.
You can use it as a normal wallet, it looks perfect, and when you are ready to fire this baby up, just one strike on the generous and thumb friendly flint wheel and you are golden.
If you’re looking for a decent Fire Wallet, there is no better choice on the market today!
So my favorite effect by T.A. Waters is Box Office. There are plenty of versions of the trick around, and I’ve even made up a couple myself. This is one of the few that actually had permission from T.A. Waters to produce it. It is Tabman’s Chest of Destiny and it is the best version I have seen of this effect.
The box looks like a real antique aged box with cracks and all. It is the perfect height and size for the effect and everything works precisely as it should. The spectator gets to choose any one of the five casted relics and when the tray is lifted there is just one prediction, and it matches the choice of the spectator.
Lots of magic passes through my collection, but this one will be a keeper, it is a perfect miracle with props that look real and make sense!
Wow, talk about an amazing utility device. This is by far my favorite card find of the decade. A bit like when you first come across a card box or a himber wallet, you start thinking of all these wonderful ideas.
I use Extractor for the cleanest signed card to wallet and I have never felt comfortable doing this before. It is lightning fast and defies explanation. I close my walk around performance with it now, and I’m immediately ready to go again.
Rob Bromley truly is a genius with cards.
You will find plenty of uses for this – buy two because these are made up by hand and who knows when they will stop making them. And how will you ever fool them again without the amazing Extractor?
Highly Recommended for all magicians who want to amaze their audience!
