Very nice, Dan. I just got your "Coin Man Walking" DVD and love it, so I am on the lookout for more from you!

Thanks!

Beautiful: every move is justified and it's clean as a whistle. That's what magic should look like. Congratulations, Dan.

Thanks again for the compliments on the routine everyone.

I haven't seen it yet but the DVD performance has a presentation. My web clip really didn't. My web clip is more of a demo.

I'm looking forward to seeing how it came out on the DVD.

Still trying to find a little chalice...

I've been to all the local World Market type places and Tuesday Morning. No luck so far.

Still looking.

If you could find a small bowl that would work too. Just today I was at Wal-Mart and was playing with an ice cream scooper. You can toss a coin in there and pour them out, though with an ice cream scooper you need to figure out a different presentation for it Smile

I did an internet search and it is hard to find these things.

This $4.99 one looks the closest to what I have. But I don't know for sure if the coins fit inside, etc. Maybe if someone wants to buy one and see how it works and post back here? 3" Brass Goblet

Here is something else I found similar, which is a little bigger for $15. Again, not sure if it works good or not. 5" Silver Cup

Try antique stores, flea markets and ebay for the chalice/goblet.

Looking forward to getting this.

I just got the NYC DVDs. I haven't watched them yet, but as can be expected, the first thing I did watch was my routine.

It came out very well both the performance and the explanation. It looks MUCH MUCH better than my web demo.

I called the company with the brass goblet - he didn't know for sure but thought the opening was "about" 1" or 1 1/4".

For Those interested:

I ordered the brass goblet Dan mentioned above and just received it. It will work just fine and appears to be almost the same in size as the one he uses in the video.

Height = 3"
base Diameter = 1 1/2"
Top opening = 1 3/4"

Very Nice and rings when a coin is dropped in.

For the price you can't beat it - however, shipping was $9.95! (Ouch!)

I just received my package from Rizzo. They are nice and a decent little ring to them (using silver halves). I don't have my good calipers so this is a little rough.... And like he says a little cleaning wouldn't hurt.
Height 2.42"
Base 1.25"
Top Opening 1.42"

I liked it. It was very "Rothian" in a sense because of the props and the story line. I just may work on this and work out my own way without as many trips to the pockets because Dan's holding that information for himself! Great plot!

Just grabbed two of these off ebay - brass, from India and dimensions similar to what Dan described. They are interesting in that the base is actually a bell with a clear nice ringing round when shaken. Could be a reason that the magic happens....or might just be a really annoying distraction! Will have to play with it and see. Might remove the hanging bell thing so it will just be a chalice.
