Hey, Hey Double J! What's with the hostility?


He seems to think that the number of post you have on some message board determines how worthy you are of information.

What some don't seem to understand is that you have to start somewhere when learning how to do something. Everytime someone comes here asking for info on making or building certain items, you get those who try to discourage them. They say it isn't worth the time or money involved. Well have they ever thought that maybe there are some who think it is worth it? Some people like to learn new things and may become the "best" at whatever it is one day.

To answer your question about how to expand a coin, I think there have been some discussions on here about it. They may be located in Secrets Sessions. You need 50 post before you can access that area though.


Is your bulb totally burned out? Did you even understand what I wrote? I never discouraged him, in fact, I encouraged him to go figure it out. I never said it wasn't worth his time, in fact, it is worth all his time. He should spend as much time as possible figuring it out. I never said it's not worth his money. In fact, I think it's worth all his money.

If I know how to machine coins and I have access to trade secrets, I wouldn't share any of it. Least not to a newcomer on a message board. And especially if I did the R&D work involved to get to the finished product.

Does this make my position quite clear?

Yeah, my bulb my be a bit burned out. Maybe I wasn't clear. The only part that was really directed toward you was the part about the number of post. I wasn't trying to be hostile. I just stated an opinion. If it was taken wrong, then I'm sorry.

Hi, thanks for the posts,

I know my English is not as good as you guys - I'm trying my best to explain.
sorry if I have offended some people buy asking a sincere question. I did not see fact that you have to be reputable to ask such questions. Thanks Double J to point that out.

I guess the question of wanting to know about expending shell is not just thing in the past.

have a nice day.

It was a reasonably question. There are tons of people willing to share how card gaffs are made, so there is no reason you wouldn't think the same is true for coin gaffs (especially since few people have lathes and mills lying around).

But apparently it is not true for coin gaffers. Maybe make a friend in the milling business and they will have an idea (sorry, but I don't).

Well summed up ebinary. Remember, if Houdini joined this forum today, he would have ONE post. Guess he would be a "newbie" too.

Yes, you are correct. He would be a newbie to this forum. I'm sure his first questions wouldn't be on the order of finding out trade secrets.

Maybe, when Houdini comes back from the grave, you can get him to be a guest speaker here on the Café'. I'm sure He would be happy to tell everyone here his most treasured secrets.

I will be patiently waiting for this day.

I'm really worried now to ask questions in the forum (as a user who only posted 9 messages) as magic tricks are all containing trade secret as Double J correctly mentioned.

sorry if I have caused the confusion

I really don't know much about coin gaffs, but it's my understanding that expanded shells are expanded before they are cut. That is, they get smashed (a technical term) which makes them thinner and bigger in diameter. Then they are cut. Most are tails side for a couple reasons. One is that you don't have to match dates. The other has to do with the relief in the heads side can result in a thinner, weaker shell.

That's all I know about anything. And I might not even know that. Come to think of it, don't read this.

Expanded shells are expanded using a very high pressure press...
