I am restoring one of these I bought at an auction years ago and was hoping someone could email me a copy of the instruction sheets. I understand that these were made in limited quantities, but any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I thought I would let you know, Bob Kline's props did not have much of an instruction sheet, as most of his props were easy to figure out, I guess.

His items were kind of limited as he did not promote his items to dealers. If a dealer did not contact him, they did not know about his quality props.

The instructions for this prop went something like, load the chamber, shut the door, and hold the box by the tassel. Swirl-it, the silks will appear. That really is about it. He did not print the instructions for many of his props. Just typed on a typewriter with carbon paper. No name, no title many times. I think is most complete instructions was for his Copentro Coins in Glass.

Just thought I would let you know how it was way back in the 1970's.

I found someone who sent the instruction sheet and I'm glad he did, as it did not work the way I expected it to (and this was after trying many different set-up). It wasn't as simple as just "Swirl-It" (they never are)...

Glad you got them, I did handle this prop at the local magic shop back in the late 1970's, as I remember it was not that difficult, but it was 40 years ago. I ordered all the Bob Kline magic at the time for the shop.
