Matthias “Magiro” Weißl invented this effect, likely in late 70s, and named it “Mikro Ringautomat.” Upon first importing it in 1984, Howard Schwarzman renamed the effect to “The Witch’s Tunnel” — presumably for the catchier title but perhaps also to hide his source. Magiro’s effect has been remade by both Magic Wagon as “Ring thru Sword Mystery,” and the legendary Richard Gerlitz as “Sea-Ling’s True Love.” Magiro made the gimmick itself, which has magnetic, wood, and steel components. However this gimmick is housed within plastic, which was manufactured by Werner “Werry” Geissler — yet another underrated German inventor.

The gimmick is simple but brilliant. It appears and vanishes in the blink of an eye. The working is entirely mechanical and foolproof. You must ditch something to end clean, but the misdirection is so strong that this should not be a problem. And then everything can be examined, the base, cover, pin, and ring. One of Magiro’s finest inventions, and well worth the hype.

What can I say about this beauty?  One of my all time favorite effects in magic is The Wandering Mummy and apart from the Eddy Taytelbaum version, which one day I will pony up the cash for, I’ve owned a lot of them.  This version is perhaps the cleanest version I have seen.  It is certainly different from all the other versions and I even ordered two sets so that I could keep a set, which is pretty rare for me these days.

Really excellent version of this classic effect, created the way only Magic Wagon know how – with excellence and perfection.  Good luck finding one of these as they are coveted by collectors for sure.

So I’ve wanted one of these bad boys for probably twenty years and finally my good friend George Robinson has created the definitive version.  It looks like a high end mantle clock and works perfectly.  Within seconds any time of day (including minutes) can appear on the clock from many feet away.  The mechanism is 100% reliable and you will just love playing with this.

There is nothing quite like the original and the amazing Gift of Time – get one before production ends!

Here we have another beauty from Craig Beytien. This time a clever piece of mentalism that that has been reduced in size from the original version to make it easier to carry and perform – this is the only 2″ block version set produced. The method is very reliable and is easy to manage using custom circuit boards that were professionally produced and work every time.

Two sets of five blocks on brass rod spindles are displayed. A spectator is asked to place each block into the holder in any sequence, and the magician can match. The blocks are returned to the spindle and again the magician matches the spectator’s sequence. Finally, the magician tells the spectator that he/she has the power too and places his blocks before the spectator does. The spectator matches the magician. Comes with block, holders, spindles, full routine in an aluminum carrying case.
