Jordini, correct me if I'm wrong, but I think he was referring to the part that adheres to the coin, not the part that flips.

I too use double stick tape.


THANK YOU. I was wondering how the heck a flipper would work with rubber cement, or in fact any of the above mentioned items. Mine came assembled. The mystery is solved.

Yours may have come assembled but if you use it with any degree of frequency it will soon need to be reassembled. Your post seems to indicate that you don't know how it's put together. You might want to learn how to take it apart and put it back together now rather than have to learn how to do it when you actually need the coin.

Mine broke a couple of days ago, and I had no wax, no tape, nothing... Only blu-tak. I tried, and it works as well...

I was playing with it and it broke, so I tried to dismantle it, but the one part wouldn't come off, so I had to pry it out with a knife! (The coin is ok everyone). I swear it was on their with superglue or something of the sort. I haven't really started using it yet though, so it's still dis-assembled at the moment.

Re info on the flipper... *deja vue*.. Smile

I also once was curious to try diff. brands of wax/diff. hardness, stickiness aso, and it always failed..
Here is more re what I use, though the stuff might not be available anymore, but similar no doubt is.
One could contact 3M /Scotch and ask them for an equivalent/replacement for the 2 types mentioned:

and

http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/searc......=3866867

It also depends on the thickness of the Scotchtape recommended by the makers of those gaffs, their gaffs might be designed re the thickness to make the insert flush, it's easy to check, when your thumb runs over the dege of the [ and you can feel a sharp edge, then the glue is not thick enough.
Howvere the one recommended above I can use both for the Lassen and Schoolcraft flipper..
Works for me and is sticky like h*ll... Smile

I wouldn't rely on it for a second..
I always play it safe!

Mind you, wax can and does alter it's state due to temperature, f.ex. when the coin is in your pocket in summertime. (So can the glue mentioned, but NEVER in any way that matters, it's NOT noticable it does change state, but theory tells it can)

I already mentioned I tried various types and brands of wax..they didn't at all stand the *test*...
I don't doubt some might be able to use wax..I'll NEVER rely on it..just a reminder to *really* test it before relying on it.

By this I mean, have the coin on your body in a purse all the time, summertime, wintertime and 'use' it under these conditions a couple of times..

When I did this, mine did split and *loosend* far to easy..

I learned about the benefits of wax from Garrett Thomas. I found bees' wax to be best - it is recommended that you give things a bit of a squeeze now and then.

Todd Lassen recommends cleaning with Acetone. He provides a piece of very thin shim stock to get any old band out of the grooves. Todd uses thin Manco carpet tape. He advises that after putting the tape on the insert, you push down on the coin on a flat surface to further flatten the tape. Then the resist paper is removed and the insert is placed into the s****.
