Where can I find a quality fountain? I see the Jumbo Fountain at Viking. Looking for a regular card size fountain. Any help?

Thanks, ROY

Marcelo Contento sells some really great card fountains. I still have one I bought from him many years ago. I know he has differnet models out now and even one for jumbo cards also. You may want to contact him to get more information. I do not know his website off hand, but perhaps someone else might. Hope this helps.

I acquired the Marcelo Contento Jumbo fountain and very impressed and happy with it.

Keep in mind a couple of things before ordering from an authorized dealer.

1. If you want the unit delayed more than 7 seconds SPECIFY SUCH (then can extend to about 14 seconds)

2. Be specific if you want the remote feature.

Otherwise you get the non-remote version with manual 7 second delay.

Vicor and Marcelo are easy to get a hold of as well and easy communication.

Highly recommended!

I love mine and to this day it still works perfectly. It is very well built and as Randy sugested, Victor and Marcelo are great to work with.

Unfortunately, the Jumbo Fountain is the only out right now that is made by Contento. They have been threatening to put out another poker size fountain for about a year now. It was supposed to come out last Novenber, then February, then May. I stopped asking after that.

Right now, there is the Hey Presto Card Fountain for poker sized cards. It works off a remote control. There is no time delay feature but I hear it works well. It's available at http://www.hocus-pocus.com .

The Hey Presto Fountain is great. Shoots cards higher than the Contento Fountain.

From fountain, how high?

And on a side note, how high does one have to go?

I still like the old Thornton Reel version (thread) and the Charlie Miller setup.

My Contento Card Fountain is probably over 12 years old and it still works like a charm. I also have it with the time delay and with the remote, so I can trigger it from on stage at any point in the program. It was very well made and he was wonderful to work with.

How high, well I'll put it this way. My ceiling in my apartment is about 9 feet. With the Unit on in my table no mre than 2 feet from the floor, the card will hit the ceiling. They only guaruntee about 6 feet, however, mine shoots at least 7 and I've had it shoot them over 8 feet.

And for your side note, I think the higher the better.

Who gives a crap over 2-3 feet when the effect lasts all of 3-4 seconds.

OK, fine, I hope you're happy with whatever the heck you use.

For $500, my Contento does fine. A bunch of jumbo cards get tossed in the air.

Relax.

Cupmagic, I sent ya a PM with contact info.
