Recommendation for a good Flipper Coin? And also dealer where I may obtain it?

Cheers.

Johnson for simple, Lassen for custom. There are others around too.

If you would like to see pictures of the "Swadling Coin"(flipper) Dean has emailed me and I'll shoot you some comparison photos.

I'm curious if anyone sells a half rimmed shell to nest over a Swadling coin. This might help some folks get their routines cleaned up... at least on the visual aspect. Still no finds on a good locking reel for something nice to offer... so a mechanical three coins across or simple vanish remains a bit pricey to offer.

I have a Johnson one, at least I think it's a flipper...don't want to describe it here, but Coin In A Bottle & E] is as close as I'll come. Problem is, it's in pieces. It'll go back together, but I'm not sure how this attaches, permanently with Super-Glue? Then you couldn't repair it, if it "breaks" again.

How are yours put together, and is an E] a normal part of this thing?

Hopefully cryptic,

Doug

A few things there;

The Swadling coin has a ] component and two parts that make a sort of flat faced, sharp edged, cut down semi-folder.

I was suggesting adding an e] component on top of the existing gaff to make it a 3-to-1 thing as opposed to it's current 2-to-1.

It's not permanent when you use super-glue. Easy to pry/pop the cryanoacrylic seal with a pin or eyeglass screwdriver.

The new gaff looks most impressive from the side view. If it can sit on the table such a display... the gaff has some nice applications.

Jon, by a "half-rimmed" shell, do you mean a "Slippery Sam" type of gimmick?

Not necessarily magnetic and of the same kind of coin as the one it acts as ] for.

Steve's Slippery Sam is a trick that folks might enjoy if it were available again. It offers a wonderfully smooth two coin transposition.

RE: "It's not permanent when you use super-glue. Easy to pry/pop the cryanoacrylic seal with a pin or eyeglass screwdriver."

I use rubber cement. Rough up the surfaces a bit, apply to both sides, let dry completely, and then adhere. It stays in place until I pry it apart to "repair" it as needed. Super Glue leaves hardened residue that must be scraped off to get a decent fit again, whereas rubber cement comes off easily using your finger.

The shell idea is great. It would remove the inevitable "coin number two" quandary.

Yes, the new gaff can lay on the table just like in the photo. Dean has some outstanding handlings for it already. I have been making his Explosions for the last four years, and only until very recently have I had one for myself. But I have immediately made one of these for myself. It's been the most fun I have had with a coin gaff since the e]!! My website will be up VERY SOON!!! And it should have a few other new little goodies as well. Thanks for everyone's positive feedback!!!

Here's my email address for those that have asked:

My website is finally up and running!!

I just purchased my first flipper and am having trouble "flipping" it with ease. Any suggestions? Please don't say practice, that part I do know Smile

Over time the band will loosen and be able to flip easier. You may want to try working it loose - maybe place something over it in the open position for a day or so.
