Whose item is this? It's up to them to delegate manufacturing permission/rights.

I believe at one point Douglas Wayne made the Devano style deck.

I'm surprised not to hear George Richbark's name mentioned...

Is this the deck you use? If I recall correctly, he uses toupee tape on the gimmick and not the pins. Do you have a tip for removing the risen card from gimmick without it talking?

I have a whole teaching video on it. I prefer to use masking tape. It is tamped until it is no longer sticky--just enough to pick up the card by friction. The spectator can take the risen card.

What is George Richbark's contribution? I am not aware of him.

http://www.richbark.com/m_closeup.html He makes and sells a devano type deck which uses the metal pins. He also has a court card on the face of the gimmick instead of an ace. He is recommended by Ron Bauer in the "Don Alan's Devano Card Rise" pamphlet.

After watching Pop Haydn's video on the rising cards, I would say that Richbark is making a thin model A.M.Y./Arne type deck using the plate with the pins instead of something sticky, Not exactly a Devano deck.

I have a George Richbark's Rising Card deck, got it years ago through Stevens Magic. It is poker size deck. The line stretches a little and has to be adjusted. The pins are micro, and hardly can see them. How this guy got the pins pressed into a tiny circle of a playing card, is baffling. The deck is expensive, but I wanted to try the pins method.

I was on of the first to buy an A.M.Y. deck. They are great and work perfectly. The only thing they are out of fashion today. They were made in Bridge size cards, which was the card of choice for all magicians back then.

The A.M.Y. deck got to England very fast, as I remember Ken Brooke's Magic Place advertising them as well. A.M.Y. started the Rising Card craze to all in magic. The local magic shop sold them constantly. Every demo was a sale.

It was surprising how fast copies started springing up, seems like everyone was making and selling them to magic stores.

I really did not care for the Masking Tape idea, it dried out to quickly. Seems like I was replacing the tape every month or so. It was not a laborious task, but did get annoying when you just wanted to grab the deck and dash out.

Del Ray's deck also tipped the card to the left or the right as directed by the spectator.

The original Devano was made with a brass weight and framework. As it was more commercially produced, it switched to lead weight. Al Goshman and Don Alan never used anything but a Devano deck . The pin lifting system would eventually wear the card but they could replaced.

I agree with Bill on the tape replacement problems.
