ya, I'm kinda in the same boat. I think the effects on the DVD are pretty decent and they're a good place to start. but there's a lot more possibilities out there. I wish there were more videos on youtube of people performing so that I can get some more ideas for routines.

this guy does a nice little routine...

I think I'm going to work on a matrix routine first.

I'd be interested to hear how people are incorporating an expanded shell with the TUC as well.

check out "T.U.C. Appreciation" on lulu.com, and comments here on the Café' More than 70 effects explained in detail, with new moves and sleights so that you can craft a hundred more.

Yes, some include using an EXP Sh**l in conjunction with the TUC

I was shooting the DVD but I couldn't finish it, I really want to make a better work as the first DVD, actually I know that the first DVD is not complete so this time I want to take the necessary time to make a good and new contribution to the TUC users. So, now I'm going to my lecture tour around England and when I come back in March I will start again.
Remember if somebody want to be in the DVD with his idea, send me videos to info@tangomagic.com

Just got a Walking Liberty TUC and it seems real loose and "rickety". Makes a lot of noise when I handle it. Is that normal or did I just get a bad one?

Sometimes silver coins need to be used some days to get the best point, play with the coin and it will adjust itself, anyway if you are not happy you can send the coin back and ask a replacement.

See if you can get your hands on a couple of others to compare (if you have not owned one before). One man's "loose and rickety" is another man's "really good". I've had 3, and they were all about the same.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

I'm not sure what you mean by "loose", but the noise issue was discussed pretty extensively on this thread. You should look back a few pages. As with a sh**l, the noise is reduced with practice and routining.

I think I know what he means, Banzai. I have an Ike TUC and it is also very loose - always has been. Loose enough that when you hold it up one edge hangs open. And if I were to hold it by the edges of the shell portion any overt move can cause the insert to fall out. When I use this TUC - which isn't very often - I have to handle it with great care. BTW, none of my half-dollar TUCs, C/S TUC, or quarter TUC are loose like that at all.

I have 4 TUCs (1 Morgan, 3 non-silver gaffs) and NONE are like this. You definitely got a bad one, guys. Time for a shipment to Argentina.

No Banzai, you are wrong, every coin work different, I can say that half of my TUC are are very loose, everything depend how the coin get adjust by self. The important is that the coin work for the effect.

Jim says he has one TUC that is "loose enough that when you hold it up one edge hangs open". And further that if he was "to hold it by the edges of the shell portion any overt move can cause the insert to fall out". That doesn't sound like a properly working TUC to me, and Jim seems to agree stating that he doesn't use it very often. I don't think I would like his TUC either, the way he described it. I have always found you to be very reputable in my dealings with you and I have seen you offer to exchange coins here on the Café in the past when someone was dissatisfied. I assume that would apply if looseness was the issue.

I had never heard of a looseness problem with TUCs until these posts. In fact, with some of my TUCs, I have had the oppostie problem - too strong of an attraction until I warm up with them a bit). Thanks, Jim, for letting us know it is a potential issue.

BTW, Mr. Tango, I am really looking forward to your DVD.

Regards,

Alan
