Long since discontinued as a manuscript or "workshop plans", does any one have information on how I might obtain one? Is it in print elsewhere?

Didn't Mike Caveny have a barrel and broom escape thing in one of his books? You might try thkn he has either a box & broom or barrel & broom plan for sale...they are basically the same, but for the box...He usually has a half-dozen auctions going on Ebay (forgot his moniker) but you could search for Professor Marvel on Ebay.

Build your own: Get the brooms, the barrel and a hole-driller (or forstner bit) and start a whakkin'. You'll figure it out quick enough.

You might consider two of the large plastic blow-molded half-barrel plastic planters, they'll nest for packing and you can easily rig how to lock them together for showtime.

Personally, I think these are the best kinds of illusions. Ordinary Real stuff used and impossible.

Also try Robert Harbins original book. One of my favourite illusions is the penetration of brooms with a person inside a barrel. As a youngster I used to help out a fellow magician back home by being the person in the barrel. He added to the illusion by putting a blade through the middle. It is a great illusion.

Mike Caveney has his routine 'The Substitution Barrel' in his book, MagicComedy. It is a sub trunk like idea with the barrel.
