Curtis, that may be used for an additional routine. Using small pins to make them pivot sounds like a great idea. I don't remember seeing that anywhere. Maybe you can patent the idea

You know what you should do with those coins Reed? You should solder them. Have you ever thought of that?

What sort of coins does Kainoa use in his routine? He talks about half dollars in his patter, but the coins look larger. Are they Morgan Silver Dollars?

Thank you for your answer

I believe Kainoa mentioned that they were Barber halves (and they appear to be so.)

They are indeed barbers, which are pretty much the same as regular half dollars in diameter. They are also, however, nice and thin in terms of their width, which makes them great for stack work. A stack of four barbers equals roughly three Kennedy or even walking liberty halves. I’m basing my measurement on how I can fit five barbers in a standard Okito box.

I have thought of soldering the coins. Every time I do they always break Super glue for me works the best so far. Smile

Use the pins, man, THE PINS!

Tony is already patenting the idea. Smile

How about "soldering" the pins?

Soldering the pins won't work. You need to rivet them so they can pivot freely. Smile

I teach jewelry making in Southern California and am toying with the idea of teaching a "metalsmithing for magicians class." Smile

I'll even teach it for free in exchange for coin magic tutoring; because the DVD I need is "Palms of lead, feet of clay, and delusions of grandeur."

What I liked about them is they each took me two days to get down.


Right. I REALLY believe that. Smile


Anyway, I liked almost all of it. ID was ok. Reed had his hand in his pocket a little long in my opinion.

Loved Kainoa's part. Loved Bejeing Coins Across.

I have one problem with the DVD.

Like most other people, when you buy a DVD you expect to only use one or two trick on it. But come on, don't you think a whole DVD of coin tricks that you can use, is a bit excessive. You could have just put one or two trick on there and we would not have been so dumbfounded as to what to practice first. Now I expect all DVDs to meet this standard and it is just not right to do that to all the other people trying to sell their DVDs.

But I have to admit POS 3 did it again and met this standard, and I was trying to get it all in at one time (which did not work.). Again my brain hurt.

My favorite tricks are I guess is Beijing coins, Goblet (which by the way if you are looking for one go to an antique shop. that is where I found two very nice ones for $15) Through and Through, Triple Alliance, A Co Pro, International Dissolve, Coercive Purse,
and man, all of them are incredible.

Oh yes, POS 1, well what can I say? Coinfabulous


I hope you guys do POS 4.

Important safety tip:

I tried doing The Goblet with some leftover Oreos and a plastic urinal for a darling little old lady in the ER here.

She promptly had chest pain and passed gas.

Moral: Stick to Curtis's handling on the video.

Hey Curtis,
I was wondering if you had any more news on POS 1 being released on DVD? The only bad thing is I won't be able to stop by and get them signed anymore. Moved away, far away. Michael

These posts have wet my appetite for the 2nd of two DVDS I ordered at the beginning of this week.

Yesterday I got the one from Reed M. Thanks Reed it is awesome. Much magic food to masticate… (Chew on that is.)

POS 2 DVD will hopefully be in the mail when I get home tonight.( I ordered through http://www.themagicwarehouse who usually ship very quickly.)

I have another gig with 300 of my closest friends tonight. After, I plan to re-watch Reeds Patriotic DVD and also view Curtis' et al stuff.

So, Harris... now that you've seen it, what's your favorite?

My new favorite part is a brief glimpse of Kainoa Harbottle in the audience making a strange face (shocking, but true) at the camera just at the conclusion of the purse frame routine.

Wow.

The favorite part over all is realizing

1. I have a lot of coin skills for some of these routines.

2. I really lack a lot of skills for some of these routines.

I look forward to the journey.


I like the coins across with the goblet.

The one I am working on is the first production of the silver coins changed to Chinese...
...
...

So far I do feel like a fist full of dollars when I try to change 3 for 3.

I had to rework it so far into

3 visual coins to D.P. exchanged for
3 coins in C.P.

I visualize doing it the way Curtis teaches it and practice it very slowly.

This is great because it is not something that everyone will be doing.

Combined with some stuff from Coin Patriot, I hope to have some fun routines in the future.

I showed my nearly normal wife the performance only part. Although she is knowledgeable just from being around magic she like to limit it so that she can enjoy the magic from a laypersons eye as much as possible.

She had the same comment she had while watching Reed's stuff. "Now that is what I was talking about when I said to add some strong magic to your programs."

Thanks to all for sharing the magic and the humor.

Have a safe and nearly normal H.O.Y.C. season.

That is holiday of your choice, season.

Curtis and Reed,

My Pleasure.

Speaking of Rocks. For years, I have been using the M.P. with a rock that a friend brought back from a trip to the east coast.

It played as a finale to my nearly normal bit at the 75 annual International Brotherhood of Magician's Strolling Olympics.(Cleveland Rocks - The location for the 2004 Convention)

I heard Reed won a few years ago for originality.

Shalom,
