Hello, 
Today I was flipping through Tarbell #7 and came across a neat routine by Tom Fitzgerald. I pulled out my nickels to dimes and worked with it a little bit and came up with this. Works great with a Quiver.

Neat idea. Quiver looks like it can be used in so many different effects.

Glad you guys enjoyed it. The original effect used a basic coin purse. I was practicing with it and then remembered I had a Quiver. 😉

Good example of taking what some consider a "joke shop" trick and with a little routining, elevating it to a fun bit of business.

I had to dig out my nickels to dimes set and it needed a good polishing. For those of you interested in cleaning your old brass stuff here is how to do it:
1/2 cup of white vinegar
1 tsp of salt

Dissolve the salt in the vinegar. Next, add flour until the mixture thickens to a paste consistency. Coat your brass pieces with this and let set for 30 minutes or longer. My set was really bad so I let them set for about 45 minutes. I wiped off under warm water and cleaned them right up.

Might be a fun topic, to take old stuff you haven't seen in years and with your current experience, try to create something new.

Great idea!  It seems to have a purpose.  I could see several different story lines that could work with this routine.

One idea I just thought of: "I keep my coins in a change purse.  In fact, let me show you why it's called a change purse..."  or just do the full routine, and the last line is, "and that's why it's called a change purse".

Tom

What I would normally do with this, is give the spectator a choice. Pick the nickels or dimes. Either way, dimes go in purse, nickels go under cap. 😉

I bought that trick as a kid.  It took forever to figure out how to separate the pieces.

Very nice, Seth!  Thank for sharing.  (Nice music, too).

I've never heard of a quiver ... but googled it and now I know.  Very useful device!

I need to go back to the Quiver instructions to see how to make it open easily -- mine is hard to get to behave properly -- so had kinda set it aside... but this is a good use for it!

I liked the idea of black and white filming with the subtitles ( if that's what it's called) to remind us of the fact the trick is so old. Nice job.

Excellent idea!!! I , as many have said, love seeing classics getting married to modern and having a new child born! 😉
Cool idea to do this in B&W! Now, to figure out how I can do that in real life!

No need to go on from this. But I always enjoy trying to routine another effect together with something I do.

You could then bring out some "ancient" papers you brought back from Hong Kong (AKA Buddha papers) and do another transposition.... 

Again, no need but just an idea to throw out there.

Thanks again for sharing Seth! Now to find these gems in my room! YAY something to do! LOL


Keep the Magic Going!
Mike
