Hello everyone..my name is EJ from Ohio. I used to run around with the late William Joy (Joy the magician) and George Kirkendall (manufacturer of the finest reel ever made IMHO) in the late 70's. I created and manufactured the original EJ's Coin Flite which helped me get through college. Marriage and kids came along, and in the blink of an eye, 40 years passes!

Anyway, was going through some of my collectables that have such great memories attached to them and decided to stick my toe back into the world I used to love so much. My wife and I recently went to Vegas and saw Penn and Teller...probably the best show I have ever seen. 

Haven't decided if I am going to sell any of my collection as of yet...everytime I consider it I change my mind.

Looking forward to reconnecting with friends from the past and making new ones...

Cheers,

ej

Hi Ej, I'm so glad that you've decided to join us! I'm sure that we have much to learn from you.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

If you're available at 2pm (Pacific), we're having a little online session vie Google Hangouts. You can choose to take an active part and share something that you've been working on, or simply watch as a group of us gather to talk about magic.

Here's the link to register: https://goo.gl/AWy9M3

I hope to see you there!

Welcome EJ!

So happy to hear about your background in our art and even happier that you've "rediscovered" it in a way. As for selling your collection, I hope that you don't! Magic holds such a precious place in our hearts. I don't think I'd ever be able to part with the things I've collected over the years. 

We hope you enjoy your stay!

Kinda off of the topic, I became a certified TIG welder and master fabricator/machinist. I attribute ALL of these skills to the endless hours of card and coin handling. It made me an insane perfectionist, but would have it no other way.[smile]
