Terrific, if somewhat expensive.
But, if you can use it, it will pay for itself.

Hi all

Peter, you said....

'Terrific, if somewhat expensive.'

I have never seen one of these until this thread prompted me to do a search. Well, they are going for $19.99 on eBay.

I doubt that is what you had in mind when you said they were expensive Smile

Hope this helps.

The ones on e-Bay are "voice stress analyzers" -- i.e., "real" lie detectors -- not the magic prop currently available.

Ah

Thanks for the update. I just typed "The Portable Lie Detector" into google and got pages of results for the product which is listed on eBay. The prices were FAR higher than I saw thrm on eBay for, and as I could think of quite a few magical uses for the real thing I just put two and two together, and got.. err. 5, I think.

Do you have a link to the correct product?

Thanks

I don't have a link. Hocus Pocus used to sell it, maybe they still do, although it doesn't show up in a search of their site. You could phone them at 800-407-4040.

The prop is made by J. Errol Nelson and costs $195.

This is a prop that I have been interested since I read the first ads on Hocus-Pocus. It seemed too expensive at the time but then my wife asked me what I wanted for christmas and this was it. I saw an ad in Stevens Magic and told her to order it there. It arrived....i opened it on christmas morning...and it didn't work (no sound). I have since returned it and did a search of dealers and found that Brad Burts had one left. Hocus Pocus didn't list it on thier web site or I would have ordered it there. I have heard that the person who makes these is having personal problems so they may be in short supply.

Thanks for the reviews.

I, too, had problems with my *first* one, so I sent it back. The second arrived, and it, too, had the same troubles. So I got out my handy-dandy fix-it kit, and voila! Better than brand new. In fact, I have replaced the supplied speaker with a better one, so the sound is slightly louder (for larger crowds).
And, of course, now I can no longer use it...anyone interested? PM me.

I have one and love it. It is easy to use and well made. It is a little expensive but the reactions you receive are worth the price. I hope this review helps. I would highly recommend this item.
