How do you guys pack your multiplying bottles to and from shows? I have been using the box they came in.

I just use the standard metal tool case that a lot of magicians carry (mine was 26 bucks at Home Depot.) One holds my close up stuff and they other holds the bottles and a few other items.

Ditto for me. Aluminum case with adjustable foam inserts. Holds everything I need for the MB sans the table. I did make some draw string bags to hold the bottles as well.

I had a seamstress sew a 3 compartment round bag for my bottles. It fit easily in my Taylor Suit Case Table.

I also made a wood box with removable lid, inside fit the bottles and a top that was hinged in the center. When open the table top was 16"x24" to work the routine on. I then put wheels on the inside of the lid, with the wheels just peeking out. I then attached 2 upright chrome pools that were for closset rods cut to 24" and inserted sews so they would screw into the box bottom, T-nuts. Nest I used wingnuts to fasten the lid with the wheels. The lid was attacted with hinges with the pins removed and a coat hanger wire in their places.

I then covered the case with imitation leather from TAndy Leather Shop. I red felt lined the interior of the case to protect the bottles and tubes.

I put a sock around the nest and keep 'em in the tubes. They lay on my Legs table, which all fits inside a fiber case. That sucker has been to Japan, France, England and even Evansville, Indiana.

I can't believe that Pete would admit to being in Evansville, Indiana. (Almost as bad as Cicero, Illinois!) ;) ;)

Mine fit right in a catalog case I use.

Jim,

Levent has some ideas on transporting Multiplying Bottles on one of his podcasts. Look for the one titled "Multiplying Thumb Ties"

I place them in my suitcase table after I wrap them with a thin piece of foam. They go I a specific location and I use a strap to keep them there. I garuantee if I had a more expensive set I would use an aluminum case.
