How do you edit the pages? I want to point out that Shoot Ogawa has a quite famous routine called The Ninja Rings.

'Small Linking Rings' was first realesed by TRIKS company in Tokyo. When Tenyo Co. started selling it widely, 'Small Linking Ring' got very popular among Japanese magicians. It dates back at least 35 years. Without including this phase of 'Small Linking Rings' history, the information is incomplete.

Caveny did not create Linking Coat Hangars. Richard Himber had a set long before, then I created what Caveny routined and marketed.

The Barbed Wire set was created by a fellow in England, who's name escapes me, but when I think of it will post.

The MacAbee rings were left out. John Mullholland's secretary wore a set of bracelets that were gaffed ala linking rings.

Persi Diaconis invented the Linking Finger Rings marketed as Himber's. He got the inspiration from a letter of Fawcett Ross describing Freddy Fah's act where he linked a borrowed finger ring on to his linking ring.

I created a different kind of ring for the Linking Finger rings that Joe Porper markets.

Orson Welles did a variation borrowing several finger rings in a USO SHOW and tossing them all in the air where they became linked in a chain.

S.S. Adams marketed an 8 ring set back in the 1930's. They were about 2 inches in diameter. They marketed one in the 1950's that were about 4 inches in diameter.
