You should only put 1 rubber band. And they shouldn't be coming out of the groove since the groove is deep enough for a rubberband. If the rubberband gets really old, then just replace it, don't add any.

Yup...

My only addition to David's comments would be to consider putting two bands around it. I use one heavy duty coin band, and one smaller and thinner dental band. That way if one breaks, the other keeps things together. Put a small piece of tape on the ] and the inside of the insert so that it opens easier... two bands can create quite a tight ^coin Smile

Best,

Mike

Good advice.

Oh yeah, it makes it easier to change the bands if you use magicians wax to hold it together instead of superglue.

I am slow to add new props to my nearly normal programs.

Has anyone worked with a flipper quarter?

Although I do use Morgans and Liberty Halfs, I sometimes like to play with in use(USA) coins.

Off topic:

After reading Curtis K's 1996 book, I am thinking of getting a 21 cent "gimmick".

To make changing the bands faster and easier, I stick the gaff together with Scotch brand doublestick tape. The gaff has always held together, unless I try to pry it apart with a knife.
