Hi everyone!
I´m thinking of an magic elevator illusion but would need to know more about the illusion before buying one.
I got a video from Bill Smith and the way he uses the cabinet would work good for me on stage but not as good in traveling on tour (modern cabinet style). I seen other versions to on the net both by Doug Henning and Copperfield as well as pictures of used props listed, but are not sure of metohod.
Any suggestions? Whats the best method?
If I buy a used prop would the part for "apperence" in the cabinet (before the door/s are opened)be hard to change and made fit me?(I do not know if this is public so I will not write what part I think of, but I guess you know...)
Anything else you think I would need to know.... Tell me!

All best/John Martin
All answers are most appriciated.

I will not mention method but I will say call edf magic and speak with them about it....all I can say is top quality, super expensive, but I'm sure absolutely worth the money. you can see a picture of it on their website.

Owen Redwind makes a beautiful one that can easily be customized to any magician, It is a very large prop. Not difficult to set up and perform. I think mine was $12,000 + 2,000 for Steinmeyer + cases.

It is a very expensive illusion and requires a good chunk of storage space. you are going to have a hard time finding a used one, not to many illusionist own one therefore there isn't many in circulation. as kendrix stated you probably wont find one under 14k.

This will sound sort of stupid, but you need to know the workings of the one you want to purchase before you buy, because the principle involved could determine how many assistants you will need to present it. I know that Tim Clothier's version, Doug Henning's version, and David Copperfield's version all differ in method.
Things are more like they are today than they've ever been before...

Greg Frewin came to and got mine from Myrtle Beach. I don't know if he is still opening with it or not. You might want to get in contact with him.
