How many billets can we switch please ?


Instructions say 20-24 billets.


That's annoying, I wanted to use it for a lottery prediction with at least 36 billets.


Then buy another version.

Well, first of all, it's not a "trick"; it's a utility device. The thought of anyone using this as a trick ("Look, I turned your iPhone 6 into an iPhone 5") makes me shutter. The benefit of this device is it's relative invisibility. It's just a cardboard box. Let's not turn it into a magic prop.

Amen to that Robb

It's a card box that collects billets, no more!

No, it certainly can, I was just commenting that it's not really "trick" in case anyone was thinking in those terms. Not that you were, just a thought.

Got this today and the web link on the card doesn't work. DVD's are far better than download instructions.
Here I am in Australia with a new toy I can't play with!

Hey guys I just got this thing too... but I don't know yet how to use it.. can you give me some ideas... my original plan was to do Stefan Oche... dream thing where every one writes an item on a paper puts it in a pay envelope and throws it at me... a spec picks 5 and one gets switched... I thought the box here might help with all the messy throw and pick up.. but I might not be getting the mileage out of it that you all plan to.. would appreciate any suggestions..
can write me privately if need be

Nice and helpful review other than promoting the box as a cool magic "trick."

This imo should not be a trick. If one uses it as a trick (kings to aces! 1's to 20's!) than of course the box will be suspect - regardless of whether the spectator opens it. It should be invisible. No attention called to the box at all.

This is a mentalist tool -an old one brought to new life. It's a utility prop. Those confused on its use etc should perhaps grab some classic mentalism books like Cassidy's fundamentals. Therein you will find a wealth of ways to use this invisibly.

Another thought is this might make a fantastic tool to use with Ken Dyne's superb E1 effect from his penguin lecture.
