Hi Everyone,

Jay Leslie is someone I have on "speed dial". Whenever there is a problem with one of my props, or I need something fabricated, I call upon my friend, Jay Leslie.

Because Jay is also a performer, his approach to prop building is one of practicalty and endurance. When Jay builds a prop, I know that I will be using it for many many performances. Additionally, Jay often gives me performance tips that are real gold.

Jay's work is exceptional. He is amongst the best in the business!

Enjoy the search.

Respectful regards,

Paul Green

Jay:

#1) I still need a nice photo of you for my "Brief Biographies of Magic Inventors" page, plus the year of your birth. magicnook@yahoo.com

#2) I am trying to research the origin of the little wooden thumb stock that you manufacture. Any clues?

I believe thumb stocks were made hundreds of years ago (not trick versions but the real thing) I'm guessing in England and Spain. I'll post the question in the Escape section and see who has a better answer.

Picture..mmm Ok

I added a "bow tie" shape that makes the eye wander form the gaffus.
