You'll need an igniter. You can make one out of a BIC lighter. Not sure where to buy one today.

Houdiniemals, welcome to the Café! Smile

Thanks, man. Got all I need! Good stuff. The igniter is in great shape! The flint still has a LOT left! I'm good! Smile

I've always dreamed of a Blaney Ladder Illusion! I also think it would be great to get a few of Chance Wolf's creations too especially the Hip Hop Hares and Chicken Sword. The Magellan Levitation would also be cool to own too.

It's funny that you mention these in the same post. When Walter saw me perform the Magellan levitation in Fort Worth several years ago, he was blown away. I asked him for an endorsement, and he declined. He said that if people knew about the Magellan levitation, he'd never sell any more of his.

Since I retired from the motion picture industry and am now teaching for living I have much less money to spend on magic than in the past (what I mostly buy now are BOOKS) and I've also reached an age where I think maybe I'm finally immune to the dreaded "gotta have it!" fever that hits whenever the "latest and greatest" thing comes along (although that still occasionally flares up in the dealers room !) , but here , in no particular order are my top 10 items that I can't afford at the moment:

Magic Page by Page - by Pat Page (book ; costs over $100 with shipping from the U.K. , but I WANT this book ... and such a bargain , knowing Patrick Page there's probably $10,000 worth of ideas contained in the book)

(Ok, speaking of Patrick Page , I'd like to be able to make up his "Easy Money" effect with real $100 bills !)

Alan Shaxon the Sophisticated Sorcerer - by Alan Shaxon (another must have book for me )

Greater Magic - by John Northern Hilliard , Kaufman & Greenberg reprinting , 1994 (missed buying this at the time and always regretted it. The occasional copy of the Kaufman & Greenberg edition that shows up for sale is usually in the $200 - $300 range ; just haven't been able to justify spending that much because I do have an older copy of Greater Magic )

VAPR - by Will Tsai
Thumb Tip Flash – by Marc Antoine
(these two utility items used as "special effects" to augment existing tricks )

Ghost Ring - by Joe Porper ( do I really "need" this to perform Linking Rings ? Well, the truth is no one "needs" it , but it's always intrigued me and I "want" it , so there. )

NewsFlash Torn & Restored Newspaper - by Axel Hecklau (looks like real magic)

Vanishing Bird Cage - made by Jim Riser (with the take-up reel)

and ... MORE BOOKS would round out my Top 10 list . I'm sure if I thought about it there are more individual tricks I WANT , but can't afford , such as big ticket items like Losander's "Floating Table" deluxe model, Blaney's "Step Ladder" Suspension and/or a Harbin "Chair Suspension" , "Through a One Inch Hole" by Jim Steinmeyer , an Owen "Sword Basket" , Dekolta "Vanishing Lady" , etc, ... Of course once it tips over to talking about performing illusions the other thing I can't afford is to hire and train an assistant or assistants ... So good books are the best value in the long run.

Alan Shaxon's book and Pat Page's book are my next purchases for sure.

Silver Oddesey I or II by CW. Nova is my ultimate. But like many others I would lose it in the divorce settlement!
