Dave, Me neither. All these guys today, want thing to work the way they want, and not as advertised. What a crazy world the Internet has devised. I wonder if when they go to buy a car, they want it totally redesigned with everything they want it to do.

The Niffen Tube is really made for liquid, but they are not made any longer. I did find one several years ago on a website in Europe.

I have to disagree. If you can use a prop for something else other than what it's designed to do, why not if it works well and the audience likes it. I don't see any problem with that. Sometimes you have to think outside the box.

I wanted to see if slush powder works with the tube because of the way the inside is tapered. It's not like a cup where the slush powder is more spread out at the bottom. Inside the tube the slush powder only sets in the tip of the taper which doesn't have much spread. But it definitely does work.

Will I ever use a slush powder effect with the tube? Probably not, but at least I know it will work if some effect comes out down the road that will seem logical to use the tube.

I don't want to speak for Bill but I think what he's trying to say is in this case, the Casket is designed to exchange silks, doves etc and not specifically for liquid. There are products out there to accomplish that. There's nothing wrong with thinking outside the box if another reasonable solution isn't available. If there is something available that more closely fits the bill, why not use it?

I wouldn't call him a sales guy. That's Greg Bordner, owner of Abbott's Manufacturing. I'm not sure why you would laugh. He's not what you'd call smooth but it's the exact way the casket is supposed to be performed. It's a demo not a sales pitch.
