Gaffed, remember this is just my personal opinion Smile

When you repeatedly slide a knife back and forth through a card box, it's (again, to my mind) obviously got a "hole" in it. The use of the knife causes common sense to enter into the picture.

The coin however, passes through the case and comes out the other side. For a brief moment, the coin can't even be seen. Perhaps that moment is the moment the magic can be thought to have happened.

The use of a knife creates a puzzle, the use of a coin maintains the spectators reasonable belief that the block is completely solid, and that magic methods unknown caused the coin to pass through the block.

It's somewhat difficult to explain in detail, as it's ultimately a "feeling" relating to the difference between what appears (or could possibly be) "real" magic, and actions and props which serve to create a mystifying puzzle.


I have to agree whole heartedly with this. As I was one of the first to receive Industrial Revelation, I have been using it for quite some time at my 4 weekly restaurant gigs. I have always just used the quarter with a "look how amazing this is" presentation. For the first time last night I used a knife presentation. Let's just say I will be sticking with the quarter routine. Using a knife didn't give me the same reactions as just using a coin!

Any tips on cleaning ?
Mine is getting a little rusty & I don't really want want to put a chunk of rusty steel in someone's hand right before they eat.

Thanks,
Mike

P.s. I did get some silicon & wiped it down.

The oil and or silicone impregnated cloth is only a preventative measure to keep rust away. That is why I used both since day number one. The only thing I can suggest is perhaps using some 00 steel wool to remove the rust, cleaning thoroughly to remove all of the steel wool residue, and then keeping up with preventative measures. Smile

You guys are absolutely awesome. All of you. And I hope you know where I'm going with this...

The 1st Industrial Revelation Film Festival

Puggo has already one his very own AIP bottle from our story contest but let's keep it going! All you need to do to enter is post a video of you performing Industrial Revelation for a chance to win a...well, I'm not sure, lol. Another bottle? Hmmm. How about if I make it one with Homer Liwag's Deck One (Industrial Edition) inside. I've never done that before and that'll be super rare. Not only that, but I'll sign to the winner specifically and number it. That should be cool.

We'll have the end date on Oct.31!

Fun times.

I guess I'm gonna have to get my video camera out, It would be super awesome to win that bottle. I already have one with the vintage 1800 series in it but I think the Deck One would look just as awesome!

Is it advisable to spray a layer of dullcoat to prevent it to rust?

Personally, I wouldn't recommend doing something like that. Any type of coating will eventually wear off in places and then you'll end up with more unneeded problems. Simple preventative maintenance will prevent any rust and only takes a minute to do. Two words: SILICONE CLOTH

I always get the CLOTH confused with the IMPLANTS. Smile

Wouldn't want to grab the wrong thing.

Thanks for your advise and recommendation. Have just made my purchase on a set of silicone kit set.

Yes no dullcoat, don't worry about it, its steel, no problem looking pristine...its not a piece that really matters. If you want to protect it, Break Free is the best stuff out there. There was extensive testing and research done on this product. Its not expensive and Walmart has it. We use it on dept glocks now. I also use it on meteorites.

Cannot wait to use this in a paid gig. Its truly being talked about and is knocking people's socks off.

Interesting Decomp. I'll check that out.

Guess I will shoot some vids this week. There are still tourists around and it will be good to compare different methods.

It's still very weird watching the block being passed around & no one thinking it's anything other than a block of steel.

Break Free is great stuff, I've used it myself on handguns and I believe I still have a can of it. However, I only use such spray lubricant's when I break a gun down. The only reason I keep bringing up the silicone impregnated cloth is it's ease of use as it doesn't involve any messy application, i.e. laying the the object down on papers, spraying the Break Free on (or whatever spray lubricant you wish to use) and then having to wipe it down. Everything is self contained in the cloth. Just wipe the block down with the cloth, put the cloth back in the resealable bag and your done. No muss....no fuss! Smile

I hear ya Gaffed. Reading all the concerned posts from my brothers and sisters here, ie; proud owners of I Rev, I went to my stash kept under my meteortie collection and took my worn tee shirt and used Breakfree on IR. Results were like real magic. Now its preserved like they are. Stuff is amazing. All our dept uses now on glocks and other assorted killing instruments. Smile

PS: I use the spray can but liquid is just as good. Wish I had that research I did a few years back on all lubricants and perservatives. Like Gaffed said, WD40 has water in it.....probably the worse you can use.

I think a lint free cloth and a light spray of WD40 would work well too.
