I have a concept for an illusion using some equipment that requires some precision electrical and mechanical engineering.

Please can you recommend any companies that specialise in building such equipment? I live in the UK.

Willie Kennedy is going to be your best bet for the money. He really is the best. Now The same job can be done for twice the price with David Mendoza. Those two are the one's I'd reccomend for what your describing at the his time.Good Luck!

Steve: Willie Kennedy is not just a name. He's one of the biggest and most prominent builders in the industry. Perhaps one of the top three best in the industry. He was also Doug Henning's right hand man for many years. Builds for 98 percent of the industry's finest. Hope that helps.

Without any way of contacting him or his organization, he would remain just a name to me. MirrorImage - thanks for the details.
