Well, what of it brothers?

Recently I worked a tradeshow and found a remarkable new table for street performers. The Da-lite Project-o-stand. Gotta see it to believe it.

But anyway, back to the post.

To gain a foot or so of height. To bring a kid up to help you. Who's got such a thing? I think of that new-school of folding chair, that have that kind of smush-telescope effect.

Ideally it would be about 3'x3' and a foot high. Anyone seen anything like this? Should we design it for the magic community?

Thanks you guys!

Spiderflex,,,excellant.
Four feet square working top,can be used in multiples,gives a lift up of plus one foot,carries in its own bag (Top section folds to a foot square and 3 inches thick) Light wieght.
Drawback >>> Cost, and requires level area (Feet are not adjustable).
Have used these for the last five years with little sign of any wear.
Also check out their tables and backdrops.

I have a 6 foot by 12 foot stage that folds in half and is on wheels. It's height is adjustable, but I usually have it set to about 18 inches off the floor. This makes it very easy for volunteers to come up on stage. All of the wiring for my sound system runs underneath the stage so no one risks tripping over it.

I tend to use this for hall parties and it works beautifully. You probably need something smaller for the street. Sounds like you're thinking of a "portable pitch"

The Spider stuff is excellent. You can't beat it. But you probably can't afford it. I know I would be hard pressed to come up with the cash for it.

Our magic club had a portable stage that was made in 4 foot by 4 foot sections. Fully laid out, it formed an 8 foot by 12 foot stage, with a small platform on the front to use for an MC stand. I purchased it at a club auction. Eventually I sold it to a renaissance festival. (Not TRF or Scarborough Faire)

Never got paid for it!

It didn't telescope, but it was very sturdy. It was made of 1/2" plywood. Each stage section base had two sides that were non-folding and two that hinged inward, so that the base could fold in on itself. There was a stretcher that pushed the non-folding sides apart to give some rigidity to the unit. The top was 4 feet square and had a pair of runners on the sides to pop down next to the folding panels.

One section of this would work well.

Thank you all (Bill, Michael, Kondini) for your generous replies. Well, I will wait until I can afford the spider stage. Maybe I will find a used one (where besides magicauction.com do people buy and sell used magic props?) Or perhaps someone will come up with a cheaper version. But what a stage!

Here's an idea . . .

http://www.platinumstages.com/viewitem.a......u=stages

It is a portable stripper tage, but you can remove the pole, it
breaks down quick, it cost $369.00, is bigger than the spider
stage, and I'm told the mrs's can even perform some magic on it
after the show! J/J But no seriously . . .

I was thinkging about getting a couple of the spider stages and
a friend pointed me here. I haven't bought them yet, just found
out about them.
