Are there any plans anywhere or other data on this particular style of base? I located it on magicauction.com. It has been sold but if it still appears on the site you will find it on this page......

Thanks for all of your work and help on this matter.....

Take care,

Bryan

You are lucky that you bought it. I was going to but I don't think it would really have a use in my show and I'm running out of room! Please tell us how it goes. How do you plan on using this in your shows?


magically yours.

Hello Lusion,

This is Lee, seller of the base you are talking about. I have had great success with it. I would like you to pm me very soon so I can tell you some more info about it.

The builder of this illusion gave me plans for this illusion. I now have the rights. I will sell them new for a price of $1,500. E-mail me if you want one and I'll custom build it for your assistant. Shipping not included.

I have a few ideas on how I will place it in my summer show, but I could not pass it up and did not want to wait another week to watch it get taken. Lee I PM'ed you thanks! My ideas are running on how to use this and I have to say that I am a also a collector of illusions I will either add it or just keep them and try and teach the art of Performing to my Kids (the one that loves the stage) I incorporated in my show a sawing in half routine in which I use 2 different methods...my way which is the traditional (wakeling) and the modern way in which my daughter uses the sawing form creative illusions...its funny because the audience gets into it as we 'face off' father vs. daughter.

Forgive me for being the little boy who hollered out " The Emperor has no Clothes" but isn't this simply a M***** Table? And if so ...how can anyone have exclusive rights for it? Maybe there is something special about it? If so let us know.

Best,

Tim

Tim's absolutely right. At least that's what it looks like and in that case the rights issue...hhhmmmm. If it has novel features, please let us know.

It looks to me like it just uses the principle that Noth Bigbee used in Tops treasury hence the back cloth in the photo. I could be wrong though.

I, along with Timothy Drake, believe that it is a m***** table/base, so I am a bit confused here........

Take care,

Well...I guess we will have to wait for Lusion's review when he gets it. There is of course nothing wrong with a good ol M***** table. There are lots of uses for such a prop and many are being used today in magic. My only point was that if it indeed is then there can be no "rights" to it as its very old and in just about every magic book in print today. If there is a new twist to an old effect then I'd love to hear more. Not about the gimmick but about what it allows you to do that regular M***** tables don't.

Best,

Tim

Magicleland,

I just had a look at your profile and see you are a young magician. I'm thinking maybe we had a miscommunication. Maybe you are saying that you have the plans for this and this give you rights to build more. I had mistakenly thought you were saying that this was a "new illusion" effect and that you had exclusive rights to this effect.

For someone of your age you look like you have a pretty good start in promoting skills regards your career. Your offer to build these props for $1500 say that you are an entrepreneur as well. I wish you well and will hope to see your name in lights some day.

Best,

Tim

What I mean is I have design rights to it. It is custom built piece by a carpeter that said he had no reason to keep the rights of design for herself. After charging me $2,000 for it. She gave the plans and design rights to me. She had no way to market it so she said I can give it a go.

Design rights? - Umm ok!

How many ways can you redesign a hanky?

Likewise, how many ways can you redesign a M***** table?

What is so "exclusive" in the design of this table that hasn't been used in most of the others?

I wish you luck, but I personally think you are trying to copyright thin air!

In all fairness to our young friend I think the builder of the prop took advantage of him and sold him more than a prop for his $2000. Too bad...$2000 is an expensive lesson.
Best,

The particular way it looks is exclusive. Other than the Kunundrum Kube , I personely have't heard of any better comments of about looks that the base is getting. That's what make it exclusive looks and design.
