Hello

I am writing a paper discuss the origins of this effect, and its various incarnations. I was hoping some one might be able to tell me about Yosi Notkowitz's version that was released in 1994(?). Any other insights you have into this wonderful effect would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

Have you seen the video of Fred Kaps performing this?

It is on my web site. http://www.petebiro.com Click on VIDEO CLIPS and scroll to it.

I created this routine for Kaps, and to my knowledge am the originator of the effect. The work on this started in 1979 and worked with Kaps on it in 1980. Some of the history and methods were published in Genii.

The version given by Paul Gertner in his book Steel and Silver is noteworthy because it won the FISM first prize. For good reason, the routine amazed the judges. However, the trick has some limitations as to where and how it can be presented. Some actions must be hidden behind the magician's table so consequently there are angle problems and set-up problems.
