My Anti Gravity rock gimmick is stuck in the in position.
Before I dissect it, has anyone tried this and learned anything
helpful? THANKS, Ed


PS- Titled this as 'Repair Topic' so we could have a central place
to ask repair type questions. (Just a thought)

I had that problem. Give the gimmick a very firm push inward and then release it. Leave it lying on its side and see if the plunger emerges.
If it doesn't work, repeat a few times. I was able to get mine to function again.

I think that is a tough repair Wally unfortunately. I believe that Killertweety mentioned that he had unsuccessfully attempted a similar repair. I wonder if a small piece of black craft "fun foam" could be atached to the front with a vertical slit in it. Would not look identical but may make a unit functional again.

A few have mentioned that they have had issues with the pendulum in their Phantom Clock not working. Stereo posted a repair idea awhile back. I had one that was not working and looked over the other night and it had started swinging again on its' own... real magic! The thing I discoverd is that it has to be perefctly upright to work properly. If the shelf is uneven the clock will lean forward or backward and not function right. Mine is working again and that is the only change I have made, I assume my wife shifted it on the shelf when dusting and that caused it to be in a better postion and work again.

Found a solution to the worn Ninja Experiment sponge problem.

Removed sponge, modelled four balsa wood baton strips, attached stick-on soft brush draught excluder tape.

A baton sticks to each side of slots with double-sided tape, brushes meet in the middle.

Really pleased with the finished result, balsa colour compliments colour scheme, pencils glide through the brushes, giving perfect cover. Brushes are durable, easily replaceable. Although batons are secure, they're easily removable, leaving no trace.

Such a strong effect, thought it worthy to give it a new lease of life.

That sounds like a good solution especially since you do not damage the trick with glue.

I recently purchased on-line a T-182 Tenyo Credit Slasher, problem is it is complete with the exception of the little sword. Any chance someone would have one for sale that I could purchase.
I know it may be hard locating, but no harm in trying.
Thanks,
Rennie
The effect is the important thing, how you achieve it is not.......
