    Very visual!

    For the money this Ickle Pickle effect can’t be beat. Just pick up the box show it from all sides and then suddenly in an instant its full of cash!

    That’s the way to do it! Make sure you get the Spring Loaded version!

    More Ickle Pickle (Steve Bender) Trash

    I read a cool effect I’d never seen in Tarbell 5 (re-reading the classics is always a good thing!) using a Crystal Casket, a glass with a plasticene insert, a small cylinder to cover same and a white silk –the silk vanishes from the glass (sitting atop the casket) and instantaneously appears inside the latter.

    This effect is designed for a much smaller Crystal Casket (such as the British firms — Repro and Supreme — were selling 25 years ago or so). Alas I’d lost my old 4" C.C.

    After seeing Andy’s presentation of this effect in his video (seen here), I bought one of the Bender versions.

    As expected it was overpriced (although I purchased it at cost) but worse, this is cheaply made: no hinge in the lid, it’s only held together with the mylar tape seen here, which will wear out if you’re performing it more than 50 times; plus the "latch" on the bottom which frees the spring load is literally a bent paper clip — and badly bent at that.

    I’m not making this up.

    Mine also arrived in Bender’s original box, well-packaged, and STILL had scratches on the plexiglass.

    Absolutely unforgiveable for an item that sells for $60+ retail.

    Try to find one of the older, well-made Crystal Caskets.
