magic hands, I'd like to see the new routine. Would you edit your post to include a link to the video?

*** Okay Folks,

After a long night of thinking about the effect, and the counting and the standard handlings I had a thought on how to make things more fun.

What if it were necessary to do all the counting of the coins into the hand, and ALSO to add in some 'expendable' materials so that ONE of the coins might be able to trans**** and pass through...

Kind of like the old Downs and Steve Duschek routines where a pile of stuff goes into the hand and when the hand opens, some have vanished.

If each time, the 'expendable' cube, balls and 'stuff' were put aside and new ones brought into play, the effect might actutally become stronger. The routine becomes a cross between chemistry and quantum mechanics to demonstrate a
'tunneling' phenomenon.

Aside from acting as if the 'expendables' were now used/inert, im might be feasible to actually switch them for used/worn/oxidised' materials and again strenghen the effect, managed by simple use of a few loaded TTs perhaps?

Okay, now the effect becomes more like qantum tunneling, and the coins across -> coins through table becomes motivated by a
'chemical' reaction.

You read it here folks.

Could it be Neuroses that they imagine? If they suffer from a Splitting Field they may suffer multiple personalities.

Looks impressive. Don't have it but have an idea on how it may work. I don't know what you could lose by getting this.

It's only money, instead of coins thru table I do a lot of bills thru wallet from buying effects.

This looks very similar to one of David Roth's coin through table effects, found on Expert Coin Magic Vol. 10.

This effect is very similiar to a Troy Hooser rotuine. Troy's is much better though. Get Troy's Book and a Flipper Coin. You won't be sorry.

I bought this from JB magic. I'm not a coin person so I found this do-able and it does have a good impact on the viewer. It only came with the gimmicked coin however. I then had to purchase 3 more half-dollars, which was not made clear in the ad. I'm not sure that the gimmicked coin is great quality but as I don't do much coin work I can't really compare. After my initial disappointment, it's now one of my favourites effects at the moment!
