Indomagic, A real quality card fountain that can work both r/c and time delay is the Marcello Contento version. It is somewhat pricey but probably the best one out there, I use this version all the time particularly for school shows...the cards go higher than any one I have seen and the kids go nuts, it is very compact. Someone wanted to know about a putting a time delay on their card fountain in this thread, an old school method is the model 90 pneumatic timer from Eagle Signal Co. You can find surplus ones if you look around..it is basically an 'air tank' set up, push the button and walk away...within a few seconds the fountain will activate, the amount of seconds is adjustable....this is old school like I said, there are modern electronic modules which do this and shut unit off as well.

Marcello Contento has not made or sold any card fountain in over 10 years. I believe he passed away some time back as well.

I had his second to last model, before he started making the jumbo version. It was already set for time delay on the fountain itself. He sold a remote separately, for almost $200 more. It was a very nice fountain. Sold mine on the Café 8 years ago or so.

If they were still being made today, they would be over a $1000, as I remember his last models was in the $400 dollar range for the basic unit without remote.

Hi brother Victor may still be making these, not sure. You would have to google this for contact info if any is available...once in a great while these do pop up on a collectors/used list.

I am almost ready to market a high-end card fountain/spirit card box that incorporates both remote and direct control and time delay. Product development and testing is complete. Doing on the demo video in July. PM me with your email address, if interested, so I can provide more complete info outside of Magic Café. I am trying not to violate any Magic Café policies here. If I have done so, my apologies.
