Does anyone have any reviews or experience with this table? It looks great on the videos but I am afraid it will make too much noise to be used without loud music playing.

Looks amazing and has a lot of potential.
There doesn't seem to be much speculation about it, other than what's on
Steven's Magic site.
Looking at the mechanism,I don't think noise would be an issue.
(But don't take my word for it.)
There's version1 with the rose etc and version 2 with the sands in
water bowl.
I'm thinking about getting version1.
Packs flat and plays HUGE.
Very versatile, could lead into a Floating Rose, Candle routine,
Multiplying bottles routine.

I heard this table makes loud noise when executed. I've been thinking about this one. Would be lovely to see a review here.

I emailed them a few times but no luck. Anyone ever bought from them?

Would be a cool start for a cups and balls routine to let all props appear.
Does anyone know how stable it is?

Just by looking at this video I know exactly how it works (didn't even took me the time to think about it) ... Not sure it will fool anyone... and when you do THE MOVE I also fear that it can be heard... not for me for sure

It's not that hard to figure it out, but you watched 10 different productions in a row in a video after you known that this is a production table.
If you are on the stage with an empty table and you throw a cloth over it, you would never think that something like this will happen as a layman & when you don't know what will happen, you also will not see the secret.

I went ahead and ordered The Production Table v.1. DeLuxe and The Vanishing Radio from Voitko. I have a plan. Music will be playing during the routine. If the table makes any noise, the music will help cover it up.

If everything comes out good, I made the right decision, magic is my full time business. If everything comes out bad, I still made the right decision because running a business requires an investment.

I am sure it will take time to get here. I will let you guys know about the props after I experiment with them once they arrive.

Sounds good :) Would be great if you would tell me then if the table is solid enouh to perform on it or if it's just for some productions.

I'm interested in this, too, Dynamike, and looking forward to hearing your review and assessment of the pros and cons. Thanks! :magicrabbit:

Great, Dynamike; I'm interested in hearing your review. Great attitude as well, there is an investment in running every business as long as the expenses are reasonable. Can't wait to hear.

Victor emailed me mentioning the Production Table I ordered is not in stock. He mentioned it will be mailed to me the end of this month. It might take two weeks for me to received it once it is shipped. He will ship me the Vanishing Radio this week.

I received it yesterday. I was practicing with it today. Too many issues occurring. I will post pictures within 48 hours.

I took of picture of the Production Table in my office today. I did break the candle by putting it back in the candle holder so many times while practicing. The items look okay, but they can replaced with more modern looking items.

I wonder what the hook is for on the table stand. Maybe to hold the fabric before placing it over the table. The big disadvantage is it can help give away the secret. I will unscrew it.
The table is a little slanted on a flat surface.
I do not like the silver material on the bottom of the table. It looks worn out. On the video instructions it looks a lot neater.

A hydraulic pump is used to work the effect. The instructions mention what will happen if the pump gets bad. It mentions there is no guarantee. That is why a second one is supplied, for replacement if needed. The more I practice the effect, the more I worry the pump will wear out.

I had several challenges when I practice the effect. Some I cleared. I hope this effect does not work on luck when I perform it in front of an audience.

The objects can be substituted for other objects. I like the effects that can be done after the production, each item can be used for a trick.

I will improve the effect with touchups. I like the effect but I do not think the price should be as high because of the quality. I think the price should have been $225.

I think this is a great idea! Just wish the table could be less 'magician-ie'..
Message: Posted by: Dynamike (Feb 14, 2016 05:01PM)
You are right. I finally took a look underneath looking from a front seat stage view. You can see all the gimmicks. Terrible. I have no choice to add more touch ups to cover it up.
