Please list them here..Are there any bad one's out there? Every once and a while I will see an ad for them.

Would you rather bend a spoon or, a participant's key or maybe a nail? I know Uri has been busted a few times, but he is still very much in demand. This to me is the strongest display of PK as metal is not easily bent. Maybe there is a method published somewhere that you like, can you share it with us?

I am currently working on a presentation for this but I don't have a method I like yet. I look forward to reading your posts. 



Logan,

I bought "The Perfect Nail Bend Kit" from Penguin a long time ago and it was useless to me. It's supposed to be self-working but I could never get it to straighten out or bend properly. It appears to be hit-and-miss because some folks there rate it highly and others have the same experience I did. I would avoid that one for safety's sake unless you can find it heavily discounted.

I love 'SuperMan' to bend coins.  I tend not to bend keys because you really want to bend something that belongs to the spectator.  Bend a key and it becomes pretty much useless.  Unless performing a bizarre piece I can't come up with a good reason (for me) to bend a nail.   At least if it is part of a bizarre routine I can get an old fashioned nail and spin a tale around the nail in some coffin. 

So I end up borrowing a coin, having them sign it.  Never having it leave their sight, bend it and give it to them as a keep sake. Done. I should add, it is recommended that you wear a jacket, although you don’t have too. I have never worn a jacket to perform, I tend to wear jeans and a t shirt. Yes younhave to ditch a gimmick, but all eyes are on the coin. Wearing a jacket just makes the ditching that much easier.

I've used the "Ox Bender" for awhile, and it works very well. Smaller coins are difficult to position, but it's a good product. 

I agree with Bmat, bending keys never made sense to me; especially spectator's keys. 

I do some bits from Banachek's fork bending routine. It always gets pretty big reactions.
