Highjack of topic post!!!

I love the look and sound of amazebox... It isn't for me as I work only pocket space but would love to know how this works & would 100% buy if suitable for me.

My highjack is... Along the lines of Amazebox is anyone aware of a bicycle card box or card case that can easily hold back, switch etc. I'm amazed that googling galore for the last year or three has found nothing so this thread maybe worthy of a highjack???

Sorry if this has been asked before but can someone tell me how robust this is.

Would be using this in a strolling enviroment but obviously it's cardboard?

Also once I have bought & know the principal is it easy to kinda make a smaller version?

I don't think this was being offered as a strolling prop. Walking around with a box, just draws more attention to what is inside.

It is cardboard. They are very expensive to have made by a box company.

These are made by a cardboard box company, if you know such a business, then possibly you could make this. Not easily made, as if you have every tried to make a box, it is very difficult to make the folding seams by hand.

I will wait to see if the box will ever be made with the corrugated plastic.

I agree, Bill. This is not designed for strolling magic no matter how small the box is. I think the original white box might be better for a small party or parlor setting, just for the convenience of transporting.

Would anyone have the original download file for the instructions? I bought this from Penguin Magic but never used it. Now I wanted to put it together but ... yep ... you guessed it. I lost the instructions. If anyone can help me out please PM me. Thanks!

I really like the AmazeBox. This is one of those few effects that has become a real worker for me - and immediately made its way into my routine. It's easy to do - allowing the performer to focus on the performance - and there are so many ways it can be used it never gets old.

Really a fan of the Amazebox. I just wish I figured out a surreptitious way to do the reverse of what it does while the box is open, as it would streamline my Q and A routine so much more.

The best handling I have found (if box sitting on table) to prevent any exposure is to have box sitting with back to audience(centre tab at back). Then, billets are placed in if doing real time. To have spectator open, ask her to turn it around and open from front.
