Hi Guys, whilst playing around with this at home and in a restaurant, I have discovered that this can be one of the most visual coins throught table ever. As they are Dollars they are highly visual. For those that know the working of U3F, do Kohlers or anyones handling really, they all work, but it looks like the coin just melts through the table. Basically hold the coins fanned as in 3 Fly, but you are going through a table. Try it, it looks great!!!

I will try and get a video up at one point, but you can also bring the coins up from under the table at the end and just have the 3 normal coins that can be handed out

Good idea! I've been wanting to use the U3F in a different way for a while now but never got down to it. Thanks!

That sounds like a very nice idea, Troy hooser has a very nice version using his favourite gaffed coin which a also looks nice. I think getting away from all the unneeded moves in coins thru table and all the hpc is very good.I will definately be playing around with this idea.

I've always liked the idea of the last coin getting stuck. ie half a coin coming out the table. you could then snap the coin and bring out two halfs. and give them away..... obviously done with a 2p rather than my morgan dollars

The coin getting stuck thing was explored back before 1900 and a beautiful gaff was designed to handle that. Really Smile Okay well the effect was coin through hat but you get the idea.

The idea of having EACH coin go through the table differently is good. The idea of taking a 1,2,3 type routine and blowing off the 1,2 by making three into a stronger effect seems a poor choice IMHO.

On its own the premise of having a coin pass through the table a few times and get stuck, and the magician finds a clever way to get out of trouble seems pretty good too.

Anyway, most of what matters is what works best for you.

I've been experimenting with using the Triple Threat for a three coins through table effect and using three Morgan dollars to produce from underneath. For the final penetration I've been playing with the use of a Wizard PK Ring to steal the Triple Threat And then ditch it in my H*****T if standing or if seated using those techniques.The penetrations of the 3 coins looks very good and you end clean.

Any nesting gaff is workable for tricks that involve all at once or one at a time vanishes. Where you find the stuff after if vanishes is a seperate issue. Whether it's under the table, in a sealed envelope, on the other side or your head or at your elbow makes no difference from this basic mechanical perspective.

Go for it! Find the application that best serves YOU. Smile This is pretty much just followup from a vanish. A basic idea written up in a very old book under a title like: "how to throw away a monie and find it where you will" in Scot's Discovery of Witchcraft back in the 1500s.
