Why does nobody seem to make ACTUAL oriental production parasols? I can't imagine it would be that hard to rig a spring production mechanism inside it for the right price...

On that same note, in regards to the methods of parasol production taught on Joker Lam's Parasol Anywhere DVD, could they be applied to traditional parasols (gimmicked or ungimmicked)?

Look at my parasols on my website, Mandarian Production. I have taken small parasols and recovered them with oriental motif fabric.

The reason no one gaffs the genuine parasols is they are usally made of paper and will not hold up. Even Fukai's are not the paper parasol type for that reason.

Please contact me direct if you need more information. I have recovered parasols for guys in various fabrics.

As mentioned previously, if you find a good oriental store in your area and purchase a few, then set down for a few minutes with a rubberband, you can quickly adapt the paper parasols to automatic opening.

Otherwise be prepared to pay for someones elses experimenting and experience to do the work for you. Example - I took my car into a garage for work, the part cost $30 and the mechanic changed me $250 to put it in.

Suggestion, cut the handle off the parasols.

Here is the parasols avaialble by for Joker Lam's DVD, seems kind of small as parasols by Fukai were larger.
