Rhett, Alan,
My t....n circles came from Tango as well. For my half dollar TUC, I cut the circle down about 1/8" and placed it overhanging square a bit but not touching edge - if that makes sense. I've been practicing with this setup and it works much better.

Is it possible to just get the "extra" coin in c/s? Or do I have to buy a second TUC?

Just pm Mr. Tango. He is really responsive (unless he is traveling) and you pay him through paypal.

Regards,

Alan

As each TUC is individually fitted it is doubtful you can use the same S***l with several different Leaves. I asked Mr. Tango this last year and he said no -- but things might have changed.

Question: When I watched one of the T.U.C. videos I saw a trick using the quarter coin appearing in a can of soda. Is that taught on the DVD with the quarter? Also, could all that orange soda harm the Teflon coating?

*Also, the video demo showed the T.U.C. quarter appearing in a vegetable (red pepper!). I'm assuming the cutting utensil is an integral part of this - which cutting utensil were they using, and does Tango sell them on their site?

I bought a T.U.C. half dollar about a month ago but I just haven't had time to watch the entire DVD or play with it BUT it is definitely an ingenious gaff - I'm amazed at how easy & smoothly it works!

Thanks.

Saysold1 - yes, both effects are on the Quarter DVD and are included in the pending book "Essential TUC"

I'll try and answer since Mr. Tango is on Lecture Tour.

No, you can wipe the Leaf after showing the initials to the spectator and Joining the TUC

The cutting utensil is not important -- you can have the spectaror break open the pepper with their fingers with no knife at all. The pepper is used because there is no mess like fruit.

send me an email at gusarimagic@comcast.net and I'll send you a Sneak Preview effect

So now you are now apparently selling this at a $15 loss - why what happened in month you owned it? Don't love your T.U.C. as much anymore?

Yes, but to be honest this is pretty common with this type of shimmed card. If you check around the online magic shops replacements are pretty inexpensive. Remember you don’t need a magnetic shim; just a plain steel shimmed card.

Jim

Then again, before you replace the card a glue stick will do wonders! I bought a handful of additional cards though as backup.

I've read as much as I can find on this coin and Istill can't work out which is the easiest to handle? It seems that the Ike is for some reason, could anybody please explain how / why? thanks

I think it is the weight of the various parts of the TUC. I have arthritus problems and the Ike just "feels better" to me -- more confidence. I have a lot of trouble with the Quarter TUC -- which could be from lessened acuity of my finger for smaller objects.

I had the Kennedy Half first and developed dozens of new effects using it. Then I got the Ike which I like better, but still use the Kennedy for many effects.

Thus, the size is a personal preference rather than any function of the TUC itself.

Why this tread was moved from Trick coin trickery ? I think that it would be moved back.

I couldn't find a place for it in my current repetitore. There is nothing wrong with it. I am going to hang on to it a bit longer and brainstorm ideas for use in my restaurant. I heard there is one made with a circular magnet now. The one I have is square and it's hard on the corners to do the move.

I'll wager that if you returned it to Mr. Tango he would replace the magnet -- worth asking anyway.

Hy friends,

Yes, ALL TUC VERSION, has now circle m****. About 3 fly routine, I improved the one that I included at the TUC dvd, I will think to introduce a new DVD called TUC miracles before Christmas. Anyway I will upload the routine to youtube next week and the T.U.C users will know how to do it just watching the performance.

Has this been uploaded yet?
Thanks
Ralph

I purchased Brian Proctor's Ike Dollar. I modified it with three layers of scotch tape cut to the size of the square. It works perfectly now. The instructions have a fix/repair memo about pressing the coin with my finger to change the configuration of the shell so it works better. I think the tape solution is easier and much more adjustable. You can change the coin setup by adding or taking off a layer of tape.

I have a lot of experience handling gaffed coins and I can tell you that the tape solution has this set working spot on.

Best,
Dave
