Topic: Which Thimbles?
Message: Posted by: ehands (Apr 25, 2004 01:50PM)
I hope thimbles qualify as etc in this part of the forum (my 1st submission). From Bill Tarrís brief description (a section in his Now You See It, Now You Donít), my intereste in thimbles has been stimulated. Wal-Mart sells good-looking brass thimbles for about a dollar, but having tried several sizes they keep dropping off my fingers. Would plastic, wood, or some modification provide a thimble that was easy to pull off, but hard to fall off?

Guidance on thimble instruction after Tarr and other advice from a veteran manipulator would also be appreciated. Thanks.

Try getting in touch with Joe Mogar (SP) he has a whole book on thimble magic, if not him try Steve Beam. Joe's thimbles are plastic and also nest and lock together.

Best
Joe

There is already a strong thimble topic underway just a few posts below this one. I suggest you ask there.
