Delben Magic Blotter by Delben

(c. 1978) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

Ben stone spent about three years perfecting this item and it was one of his favorite items. The early ones were made out of redwood and the later ones Philippines Mahogany. The later ones also had the DELBEN stamp on the base.

Close-up magic at its best. An old fashioned desk blotter works like magic to print money, do the torn & restored card and other effects. The first time I used this I really believed I could create my own dollar bills, the action was so smooth!

Effect: The magic blotter can be used for a number of impressive routines. The most well know is the Money Machine. Place a blank piece of paper on the base and rock the blotter over it. The paper instantly changes into real money!

Or place a dollar bill on the base and change it into a $100 bill! This will get their attention. Or have a card selected and torn into pieces, retaining one piece, arrange the pieces on the base, rock the blotter and the card is restored and the one piece matches the restored card which is missing a piece!

The Delben Blotter looks like an old-fashioned desk blotter and is beautifully constructed out of black walnut with a hand-polished finish. The method is undetectable.

    One of my favorite Ben Stone effects!

    I have always liked Delben’s Magic Blotter by Ben Stone – this is the third one I have owned now and let’s hope it hangs around for a while.

    Apart from the sheer elegance of the blotter itself, what I like so much about this is how smoothly it operates. Even very close-up and watching intently, you really can’t see how it changes … the blotter just blots away the blank bill and there in its place is a crisp new bill.

    If only making money were this easy!

    BTW, if you have ever been tempted by that awful copy that was released by Magic Makers, don’t be. The mechanism is not even close to the action on this baby. Shop around and find the original.

    If I had one criticism of the Magic Blotter, it would be that it is a one time only deal – once you’ve blotted the first bill it’s all over. The problem is easily solved if you make it as the end of another routine with money. Something like Ron Bauer’s Xerox Money would be perfect as you try to iron out the mixed up notes at the end. Just something so you don’t need to use the blotter more than once.

    In any case, this is highly recommended as a great collectible and a great prop!
