I have a three minute egg timer; does that count?
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Lol. Nice one Brother.
Im looking for a nice antique wooden one. Some of the new ones are made with that old look to them as well. It would be beautiful on my bookshelf alongside a couple other items Smile

I had one but broke it trying to make a trick with it. I wanted to be able to slip a card into so as to reveal a picked card.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I have two. One is brass and one has a wooden frame. I like the wooden one better except that it has purple sand. I prefer sand color . The brass one has white "sand".

We used to use the wooden one in a running gag with me (as an eager apprentice) doing a trick if there was time. I'd turn the hourglass while the Wizard was not looking to stretch the time. The Kids loved it.

I use a 10 minute sand timer for intuitive readings/fortune telling... IMO, it's classier than a mechanical dial kitchen timer and/or digital timer (I also have both of those types of timers as back-ups, and for longer readings).

I bought it on Amazon. It is available in a few different sand colors, and also in a white frame.

Sometimes our Wizard had an egg timer sandglass that had a nice wooden frame on a fob as a gag (along the lines of a pocket watch on a fob).
