I thought I'd make this my first post as I love this product so much.I'll start by saying that I received both colours , and that does make it possible to use this gimmick a couple of times ,seperated by a couple of other tricks. The amount of Magic possible with this is endless.My favourite is making a torn and emptied sugar packet re-appear full and sealed. No-one suspects the gimmick unless you present it as part of the trick. And it's easy to ditch the gimmick in your pocket anyway, and then come out with your pack clean. I show the inside of the case as that's where most people think you've sleighted something to. But even if you show both sides fairly no-one will suspect it. The only negative thing I would say about the dvd is that it states on the back that one of the bonuses is to show how to remake another gimmick.I can't find this anywhere. Over all one of the most fun , limitless products I'll ever buy.

Ummm, anybody out there? Khuluma had a good question....cardboxes don't last long so can we order more or make our own when the cardbox wears down? Also, like Wardy, on the back of my DVD case it said we would learn how to remake another gimmick but I can't find that info....any help would be appreciated..thanks all.

I think the small part in the card box can be moved into a new box and only need a little or perhaps almost no crafting skill.

Thinking to combine this with Flightcase by Peter Eggink but then again, using the box twice will throw the heat on the box.

It's gone eerily quiet on the this subject! Still, I am enjoying the gimmick and I think you are right about moving the part across to a new box, shouldn't be too much effort.

Even there are at least two tricks that will allow you to do the routines in Tool, I still want to have this as we will be allowed to look inside David's minds about card magic. I'm more interested in the psychological approach on each routine, patter or presentation.

This is a worker! Smile I'll see if I get mine pretty soon.

Ok I like the idea of this I just wonder how it compares to Redemption by Chris Ballinger and Conspiracy by Eric Ross

Thanks

At first I thought the idea was a bit lame.

But having seen it on the Wizard Product Review I'm interested.

Good work David Stone.

In my opinion this isn't that good. I bought it out of curiosity and the production values of the DVD are poor and the gimmick is just the same as Solo by Mark Mason. Yes you get two gimmicks with Tool but I've just sat down and compared the two with Solo & Solo's gimmick is better quality. This is just my opinion. Also I know little about who first came up with this idea but I was surprised that Craig & David didn't mention crediting when reviewing it on their show. I know how stressed Craig gets about crediting too! Smile

I mentioned the Solo thing earlier in the thread but I was shot down.

As soon as I saw the demo, I thought of Solo. I guess it is ok to take someone's idea and take it in a different direction? People put variations of tricks out all the time. Anyway, if crediting wasn't given, it should have been.

95% of spectators won't know it is a gimmick box. They are not as familiar to thebox structure as magicians do.

and it took me like 2 minutes to figure out which is the gimmicked part of the box! I thought it was just badly cut! (maybe I was just stupid)

I guess both are pretty much the same.

You can do Solo using Tool without the cards with holes. Then you can do Tool with Solo. Confused? Smile

Anyway, the concept is the same only Solo has different ending and pulling out a card of the card box will be the closing. I haven't got both so can't really comment on the quality of the gimmick. However, if you think it's really unfair to have such poor quality gimmick, perhaps you should contact the dealer or David himself.

Btw, with the money routine in Tool, do we get the special card too? The card with a picture of folded bill? If not, does the DVD teach or even give sample of pictures that we can use?

Thanks.

Both Solo and Tool are great, but the card boxes that come with Tool are IMPOSSIBLE to tell from a real card box! The one that came with Solo is a little thicker and heavier than usual (a spec would never know), but the Solo effect with the extra cards is awesome. Tool has 2 great gimmicked boxes, and a DVD full of awesome ideas. They are both great effects! I am curious about Redemption from the Geek, though . . .
It would really be quite tragic
if the world had to do without magic!

How to contribute new routine with Tool? Where should I submit the video to?

Would it be eligible if I use some other gaffed cards?

That's true. I've been having fun and it gives me too much headache because so many possibilities to use this.

And the gimmick.... what can I say? It's undetectable. I almost had to pop my head into the box to check it thoroughly to be able to spot it.
