Looks like the same workings as the Copperfield version but with a sleek new modern look. Don't know if DC's take apart is copywrited by anyone but if it's built ethically and being sold, I think it's very cool!

I dig it...

Reminds me a bit of the 'where does the ducks go' that Chance Wolf build for Ray Lum (http://www.wolfsmagic.com/MS_Lum_Duck.htm)
on a modern looking table like Copperfield uses...

Hey folks,
I built my version like this about 6 years ago.
Funny thing is this is the second builder that appeared to follow my lead so to speak Smile Ahh ya know, no biggie. I am sure it is possible that two minds think alike.
Lets not get a rip off thread going here as I know Rich is a good guy.

I do plan to release my version eventually but I just want it on the record when I designed and built mine as well as posted the pics on the web six years ago.

I am not necessarily sure that it is a Copperfield original. Owen Magic has been selling the vanish and reappearance longer than Copperfield has been around.

The 'where do the ducks go' (a titel given by W.J.Nixon) was invented by Servais LeRoy. the combination with the Duck bucket is credited to Bill Smith.
So the props are not Copperfields however the Routine (with the slo-mo repeat) is his and should not be copied! (but that's another story ;-) )
Glad to see that some people like Chance and Rich take pride in building quality props!
Keep up the good work...

Great history of the props! Thanks Rafael! Does anyone know who was the first to use the slo-mo repeat add on to a routine? I have seen it performed a few times.

It's older than Tommy Cooper but like I said in another thread on this forum Tommy Cooper was the first to use this idea with a magic trick!(vanish a silk in a TT)
Bill Smith told me that Copperfield got the idea from Benny Hill (who used this idea in some of his sketches)
The idea to use it with a duck puppet in slo-mo & the magical ending of turning the Duck puppet in a real one is Copperfield Intellectual property!

Yes Rafael and it seems that for the duck puppet Copperfield was inspired by Steve Spill's Mind reading goose.

The slo-mo idea was from Jeff Justice who did it with a silk through microphone stand. The Spill routine was being done by him before Webster was a member of the Copperfield cast, at the time a puppet - not the hand made one now being sold by Kohler - was in limited release and that's the one Dave uses.

I remember the Justice routine right down to the music. Anyone know what ever happened to Jeff Justice? He was a really fine performer.

Rich HIll's Duck Vanish is absolutely breath taking! I saw it in person and the extreme details were totally impressive....the design pure art.
