I love my Okito box and it has plenty of room for an expanded shell.

Fingers, do you remember who makes the box you use? Is it the Roth box? The Roth is the only one I know of currently in production that accepts an expanded shell.
There was a box on the market years ago, that I remember being described as "The Blackstone Style", that would accept expanded shells. Bobo shows it on p.217, figure 2, but doesn't call it that. I never liked this style much though.
I wonder if there are boxes designed for specific foreign countries which would accept U.S. expanded shells, simply because of differences in the size of their coinage...

I have several sets of different boxes...some good, some not so good.

My favorite?

I'd have to say the Chazpro "Buddha Boxes". I have all three. They just seem SO easy to use!

One thing...do NOT be seduced by the high-priced props. You DO get what you pay for, and if collecting is your thing, then by all means, the Todd Lassens are drop-dead gorgeous! I'd love to have a set, but $500? Beautiful, nonetheless.

The Dollar-size Bronze one is $125-$130...again...stunningly beautiful...but...look here:

That Dollar-size box is just plain brass...$30

Same for Cups & Balls...I would absolutely LOVE to have a set of Porpers...but I could buy a used CAR for that price! And I NEED one too! LOL!

I would recommend anyone wanting to start out with this prop, get the regular Chazpro "Buddha Box" for $18...and get David Neighbors' Book..(I just ordered mine, by the way, David! Smile)

My $.02

I have only ever owned one box that was pierced, I bought it just so I could try out the Mohammed Bey routine. It came from Tannen's, cost me about $2 and it was worth every penny. It was sheet aluminum, it looked cheesy, and it did not look the same when it was in the "secret" position as it did in the normal position.

Hi DStachowiak, the Okito box I have is manufactured by Viking for Definitive Magic. You can get it at http://www.thetrickery.com/?nd=full&key=5147 It is not the box Roth endorces however.
