Michael Weber is a genius, and although this effect is very different, it's not that magical in my opinion. I guess I'm not seeing what others see in it. Let the flaming begin.

I've seen him do it at least twice. He uses the wood with three nails as a table for other tricks and then lets the spectators keep the board with the nails it in at the end!


He has shared the "how" with no one. So anything else is speculation.

Sorry Thomas...


No need to be sorry, "newguy"... you are, however, mistaken about the not shared part. "Not shared" with you is more like it.

But it is true that no one [who knows how it's done] is going to reveal the method(s) publicly.

On a related note. I recall seeing a pretty sexy barehanded assembly using thumb tacs......though I can't recall the source. Sounds like something Sean Fields would do.....

Gilles, you know, the thing you use to stick a card to the ceiling when wax, putty, and/or tape won't work.

aka Thumb "Tacks".

Ok, now that the nail matrix is set up and working, does one of you knows if I can actually see somewhere the one with buttons sewn onto an hankerchief?? This is titillating as well, isn't'it

NewGuy,

Thanks for the link to the video. Again I am amazed by the simplicity of Michael's effects. I heard about this years ago and also wondered how clean it looked. Consider me fooled!

Kex,

You are welcome, I didn't set it up, just saw the link on a Japanese website I visit all the time. Lots of great performers on that same show, including Sawa!

This may be the one trick that still has me fooled and I absolutely love it.

Mr. Weber IS a definite genius.

There is also a clip of the nail matrix, and more about Michael Weber in the Ricky Jay documentary Deceptive Practices. It's up on NetFlix. At least for now..

I enjoyed the documentary. Definately worth watching..

No wonder this sounded so familiar, I saw it on the documentary.

My friend up north had some of the old FISM tapes a while back. I believe Michael did it in '94 in Japan.
