It says it's 1.5MB but it still was going to take 20ish minutes to download it on my T1 connection. I'm confused. Smile

The linking safety pins is one of my favorite effects. I'm glad to see somebody doing it. I'll take a look at the vid when I get some time.

I could not get either of them to play.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.

I couldn't see your vid, because I wait a long time to connect an about 15min and then the Windows Media Player shut down! Smile

NickJegor,

Nice video! My only advice would be, what you performed on the video comes across more like a puzzle, (Slightly reminiscent of Jay Sankey's Chain Reaction, also very puzzle like) you might want to think about adding something more to it; unless of course you just wanted to demonstrate the primary move of an otherwise longer routine.

Anyway, nice job!

Again, I second Jcigam. It feels like it's missing something. If I was a spectator, I would want to examine both the pins, and your hands. Too much like a puzzle.

Juan,
I don't know if this is just an example, or your routine. If it's your routine, you may wish to shorten and/or vary it. It's repetitive, and should have stopped a move or two earlier (They're linked, they're not linked, they're linked, they're unlinked). I think a good routine would have the "power of 3" to it - Link, unlink, link, close. It's ok to unlink them for the close, make sure they are aware that it IS the end.

Also your get reasy was a little obvious (to me). With your permission, may I PM you?

Just my opinion...

Thanks for the advices. Feel free to send your comments, I always want become better.

I don't perform it without say anything when I have a spectador. That parte where the 2 píns are like a X, remember ? I give to the two spectadors - each hold one pin - and them separate the pins everithing in his hands.
At the begining the middle and mainly at the end they examine everything

David, of course you can PM me. Thanks for your comments

Dan Garrett does a decent routine with normal larger metal safety pins. It's in his lecture notes.

Linking safety pins was one of the first effects I learned back in 19__. (Tabman, don't say a word. You were around back then too.)

I still like it as well as I do linking rings. It's just magic!

Enjoy!

I have found that creating your own linking paperclips and routine is much better than buing one. just try and through up some ideas. it worked for me.

Juan,
Nice work with the pins. I also use normal pins, and they act as a good -just in case- sort of routine for me. I don't leave home without them. I saw a street magician do them once about three years ago and went home and figured it out on my own. I table hop and they're the best back up trick I carry with me.
