Magic Mike!
that's just great!
I used to change paper to money because i´m from germany and our Euro bills are not perfect for EB.
But with your presentation,instead of changing the money into a higher domination make the bills heal themself would
work great!Because I can use the same domination which will work without any problems with the EB method.
Now I just need to get a new fire wallet again (sold my last one years ago because was not very reliable while igniting the wallet)
Don´t you mind if I use your presentation? Smile
Greetings from germany!

Cosmic secret,

Anyone is welcome to use this idea and routine. I would get a real kick out of it if people would PM me and let me know how it is working for them.

I've had a few people tell me I should market this but I don't see how I could. It really needs a flash bill change like Richard Sanders Extreme Burn. It wouldn't be as effective if you used Pat Page's Easy Money (which I believe is the origin of all this).

Maybe I'll get a few other ideas togethor and put out a booklet with a few pictures and more detail but honestly I'm sure you guys can come up with even better looking burned bills than mine.

It would be cool if Richard Sanders heard about this and pulled all the remaining copies of Extreme Burn and added this as a new chapter. (yeah, right).

Hi,

I too have EB 2.0 and live in the UK where bills are different sizes. I love Magic Mike's routine (Congratulations on a fantastic idea and many thanks for sharing!!). My only concern is our lowest denomination is £5 so I'd have to set fire and put holes in £25 cash and that's providing I get them all right first time. I'll probably end up doing it but it just doesn't feel right Smile I know peeps in the US change $1 to $100 commiting over $500 to the trick but this could be dismantled and spent if needed. Suppose £25 is a small price to pay for such a good effect...I better do it when the Mrs is at work or she pass out if she saw me burning money haha!

In the US you can always take your cash to the bank a get a new one as long as there is at least half a bill and they can read a serial number. At least that is my understanding. I took a couple of bills back that I had experimented on and was all ready with an explanation but they didn't bat an eye and changed them for undamaged bills.

So check your local laws and you might want to avoid burning away the serial numbers.

Anyone have better info on this?

Mike, my understanding with banks is the same as yours, though I haven't tried to cash any in.
I finished setting this up today, and am playing around with it. Did it for some ladies my wife had over for lunch and they were amazed.

On the special bill I just burned two holes in the half that isn't in play. Seems to work very well, and doesn't require glueing an extra piece. A bonus is that the special bill retains more char in the hole. It is just more stable.

I have been using to burned ones to healed ones for a few weeks now (with a fire wallet).
It gets a great reaction as well as a laugh!

I also want to commend Mike on his great idea. It certainly cuts down on the amount of cash I have to carry!

I wish to thank Magic Mike for his contribution of his adaptation on EB, if you scroll back a bit you may will see his entire post, Briefly , he uses a fire wallet and burned bills that change to new un burned bills, I loved the idea and took the time to make it up , and I must say it is awesome, a ton of fun to watch as people are jumping back, and when I remove the burned bills, still smoking thanks to another new effect, “Smoke”, they step back in to get a closer look, then for the finale, I use the gravity change as I feel it is almost like not touching the bills at all and they change to new , un-burned bills, well people just react like crazy, it is so much fun to do, but more fun to watch,
During one showing of the effect, upon removing the burned bills, and as they were smoking, I yelped as if was burning my fingers, and I purposely dropped one bill, and I asked a guy to pick it up, he said “No Way”, that was it for me, I was hooked.
Thanks to Magic Mike

DAve,

The idea of using "Smoke" to make the bills appear to be still smoking is awesome. I'm going to get out my DVD and look at The Gravity Change and try it.

Imagining your presentation in my head gave me another idea. If some one wanted to do a "message" kind of routine you could talk about how some people think money is evil (Fire) but it's not really the money it's how you choose to use it. (Restored).

I'm having lots of trouble getting this to work properly. Everything is lined up very well, and I used brand new bills. Should I have used older bills? It seems so simple when Sanders does it! I am new to using bills in my magic, so this is all new to me!

Bats,

It really is simple! And new bills work much better than old IMO. Actually I think that Richard recommends newer bills on the DVD - haven't watched it in a while!

Like any effect you must work at it to get it to flow nicely, though to be honest I had it up and working very quickly. However it took a while before I could do it smoothly and without any hesitation or jerkiness. (Is that a word?!)

One thing to check is that you have the order of things correct. Can't say too much on that here but I am talking about the specific location of the offset one. (Do you get that?)

I ordered this the other day finally. Looking forward to it!

You'll love it, sirbrad. I held off on getting it for a while too, but now it is one of my favorite effects to perform. It's fantastically visual, angle-proof, casual, practical, portable, and magical.

This is a beautiful effect. everything that pops out of richards mind is brilliant
and a worker. its just normal to invest some time to get it perfect. but it doesent
take to much to achieve a smooth change.

I had problems to get other bills with the same size of bills as in switzerland. finally
I found a currency that works just perfect. old turkish currency, very cheap over ebay.

I also use paper strips, news paper pieces or lottery tickets as well.

The very nature of bills folded in half in a stack causes the inner bills to protrude more than the outermost bill. Add to this the special requirement for EB's get ready, and you have lots of flashing potential. This is a really big deal in any country where the bills are different colors. I solved this a long time ago with EB1:

I trim my bills.

Not much. Less than a milimeter, but this keeps them from being spotted during either phase of the trick. This built in recess makes the get ready really easy too, since the key bill is flush rather than protruding.

Good tip. But I have to say, I use "newer" bills, but not "new" and have never had one glitch with EB. I purchased EB2 just to keep up, but have never seen a reason to change. This effect just stuns people. Keep with it Bats, sounds like your are doing something a little different, perhaps. I will tell you that I switched to a larger piece of what would almost be very thin desk protector or a thicker iphone screen protector and got a much better result, if that is not too cyphered...
