Well it may not be the most beautiful prop, but it is easily the most beautiful drawer box ever. This is absolutely breathtaking. I’ve always liked the drawer box as a production method, and the Oriental Drawer Box from Worth Magic is a real beauty. Also, I’ve always been very partial to Owen’s Sesame Cabinet. But when I saw this stunner, I fell in love. It is probably Milson-Worth’s finest piece – I can’t think of anything that either Jim Simon or Lyn Johnson have done that is more perfect.
The mechanism is perfect and the paint job is breathtaking. It is almost like someone said to Lyn Johnson build me the most beautiful box you can think of regardless of cost. He certainly delivered. My understanding is there are only three or four of these out there, and that would help explain the price.
It is totally flawless and a time when I wish I had six stars! As long as I have room, I will be keeping this bad boy.
Highly Recommended for Magic Collectors and True Romantics everywhere!
It is hard to find a prettier drawer box than this Oriental Drawer Box from Worth Magic (which later because Milson-Worth after Jim Simon passed away and Lyn Johnson acquired the company.) Although I am very partial to Owen’s Sesame Cabinet and an oriental one I saw recently on ebay would be easily my favorite (just a little out of my comfort zone for now … or not!).
This is a very solid mechanism with no moving parts on the outside and it also has the ability to pull the whole drawer out. The great thing about drawer boxes is that they support a huge load because most of the size is dedicated to the load.
Anyway, if you see one of these then for sure snap it up, you won’t be disappointed.
Highly Recommended for Collector’s and Stage/Parlor Performers everywhere!
So 2013 was a wonderful year for Magic Wagon and they produced some really outstanding effects. Like all of their items these days it sold out very quickly. Their magic always looks amazing and most of the time their effects are good to great, and their methods are normally very practical. In the past they have had their misses, but that seems less and less these days – this is certainly a winner!
This item is probably one of the easiest penetrations you can perform and there is nothing added or taken away, no switches to release, no slides to move, and no magnets or threads. In fact you have just one ball, two bolts, four nuts, and the tube – you see all there is the photos. You can show the tube with the solid bolts running through and drop the solid ball into the hole and have the spectator look fight inside the hole from above and below – there is no way the ball is coming out! And yet with a snap of the fingers the ball drops out of the bottom.
For some the method might be too easy, but for me and for lay people it is a fooler for sure.
This outfit allows you to name which die goes into which hole and what the top number on each die is. Also you can tell if 1, 2, or 3 dice have been placed in the box, with top number and location.
There are no electronics here and the box can be examined, and yet you are always able to discern the information. The mechanism works really well and is based on an old idea from Larry Becker and Roy Roth – but taken to a whole new level.
A piece of clear Plexiglas fills the frame which can cleanly be shown as solid. When not in use this rests in a stand. When performing you take a wooden sleeve that passes over the frame and slide it to the center of the frame, where upon you push through three brass rods right through the center. When you are done you pull the rods out and slide off the sleeve and the Plexiglas is left intact.
It looks impossible, yet it is 100% automatic in working, with nothing added or taken away and really looks impossible.
So this is a special version of the Ghost Host Box Jr. Billet Forcing Box (which is similar to the Poltergeist Box) made with expensive Wormwood and with brass accents. There are only two of these in existence since the maker, Sam Hawley (PSIMAN), has passed away.
It does allow the spectator to open the box and tip out the billets. One of the nice features of this box is that you can tip the box upside down and shake the billets out and everything will appear normal if they look inside the box.
It has a large capacity and depending on your size of billets you could easily get 30-60 billets in here.
Highly Recommended for Collector’s and Mentalists.
The box allows you to detect which way up a golden medallion is placed and in what location (1,2, or 3). It sends a wireless signal to a small remote and also has a vibration mode. It works perfectly every time.
You can then place three containers (with $10, $20, and $100 in for example) in the box and detect where each currency value is.
All of this without once turning around. Very clean electronics hidden into the box with no signs and everything can be examined.
Simply wonderful, and a great way to end an amazing year of magic! I can’t wait for 2014!
This effect is variation on a classic Al Koran routine and I must say how beautifully made the wallets are and how clean the whole effect is.
In performance, you show a deck of cards clearly to be all different. You show your wallet with a single card facing back towards them and a hundred Dollar bill. If you don’t get the prediction right they win the cash!
You ask them to simply count the cards face-up on to your hand and stop whenever they feel like it – it appears there is no force. You open your wallet and turn over the card (there is only one card in the wallet), and it matches their prediction. Now for the final surprise finish the wallet is turned over and printed in gold on the back of the wallet is the name of the card they chose.
Reset is a snap, and the result can be different between performances, so it can be done in a walk around situation.
The only down side with this effect is that you should ideally wear a jacket or something with large pockets, pant or shirt pockets are unlikely to be large enough.
I’ve always loved Ton Onosaka’s effect Lucky Lady, and now it is even better.
It is way more than the old pin the queen trick. I did it on my kids over the weekend and they loved it. You can keep pinning the queen they cannot, and then in the end you ask them to close their eyes and they finally do pin the queen, but only because it has changed to one jumbo queen.
But with the new one you have the option of a different ending where the queen disappears from the cards and ends up in your jacket pocket.
Who else makes such colorful, high-quality, packs flat items like these? Ton Onosaka is certainly in a realm of his own with these items. This is a great little routine for kids with the usual turn it around action and a surprise ending of the big cat. Not as mysterious as his Rainbow Dice, but still a great item particularly for the children’s performer.
