@#$% Michael! Ya "stole" my idea! (hee hee)

Hey Dick, I once traded a smoke device for electric touch...both unreliable and pricey. Never again. That was years ago. That $3 tool would "run circles" around everything in the latest and greatest, or anything else in magic.
Message: Posted by: Dick Oslund (Apr 5, 2016 07:09PM)
Yes! That $.25 that I spend with Percy Abbott in 1946, was an INVESTMENT.

i agree Michael! SIMPLICITY!

I don't do srreet magic but I would think that IT would be valuable.

Well, it's all Michael Jae's fault!!! He's the one that STARTED the fight! R0FL

Dear old Professor HERWIN~! (He never thought that his little "feke/thumb" would cause all this!

Use my "Super Spinner" for that - I've been able to do the Origami Frog animations from hand-to-hand eliminating the need for a table - best part, being Open Source it is cheaper than a TT:

TKO, to**t

ITR, Loop

I never leave home without my TT. Great stuff. I would also invest in an ID. Its only like $11 bucks on penguin and you can get some great use out of it. I always take my TT, a matching colored regular deck to the ID and my small coin pouch. With just that stuff (combined price being $20 maybe) you can do a plethora of tricks and put on a hell of a performance.

I once again tried to work my TKO unsuccessfully. I realize that this is a fine product but it's not for people (most of us) who have a belly. If you have a belly bulge, it will interfere with the tko. As I try to use it, items such as my wad of $100 bills get hung up and go flying down the street. Imagine that...

I always carry loops, deck of cards and the invisible deck... all pretty old school now, but will never fail to impress. If I am going out prepared to blow people away, then I take electric touch and use as the kicker for reading that last thought in a persons mind. Really gets the place buzzing :-)

Loops are always good to use with glasses or bills. The animations you can make are incredible especially with the newer Loops Yigal has released

Those that have been mentioned (TT, ITR, loops, ID) and also sponge balls, INKA pen + cap in a bottle or coin in can (sinful by Wayne Houchin) and you can do magic all day long.

It would appear, after reading this thread, that it would be wise to invest (buy stock) in the company that makes TTs, and IDs:!!!

I carry around a ring flight pro with ignition and keymaster attached. halo project ring and rubber bands on wrist

I almost always have a loop on me, I actually never use a TT but I'd recommend having some coins with an expanded shell as well you can do a lot with coins and one shell
Message: Posted by: Youri (Mar 12, 2018 05:28AM)
Some of these : a ring, a deck of card, color changing knives, 2 sponges balls and a "jumbo" sponge ball, one coin (or 4), one jumbo coin, rubber bands, an ITR, one pen, one lighter, cigaretts.

Magnetic rear pocket holdout and purse frame.

At IBM Ring 56 meeting this week Lewis Chaney and Norris Priest taught us how to make and use roses from napkins. Napkins have numerous uses like keeping hands dried, replacing lost silks/balls, writing predictions, etc. But making paper napkin roses as attention getters, using business cards as stand for them at tables, etc. was eye opening. Definitely will be adding napkins to my bag and napkin roses to repertoire. Here is link with other examples:
