What are the inside dimensions of the box? Buying some velvet to line it.

With the tags from Hugo, do you need something to program them? Or will it work without doing anything to the tag?

I received mine and really like it! (standard version). I re-lined the box with red velvet and like the way it looks now. Was a bit of a pain to do as the felt is really glued in but came out great in the end.

I discovered that the tags Hugo Shelley sells will also work with the box. They are much smaller (a bit larger than a half dollar) so will fit in smaller items.

These smaller tags will allow you to gimmick a business card. This could be a killer item for trade shows or areas where you want to collect business cards. Have the box open on your performance area with a few cards in it (including your gaff card). Say that you will show them a miracle but you need some business cards. Collect a bunch of cards and then go into the haunted Box routine using the collected cards.

I will have fun with this.

Cheers,

I think Hocus Pocus may still have some.

Great review Luke.

I was able to confirm on the weekend that a Hotel Key card that uses RFID will trigger the box. Most Hotel key cards use a magnetic stripe but most newer Hotels seem to be using RFID. One RFID card with a bunch of magnetic stripe cards will work, they generally look the same. I have saved cards over the years from business and personal trips. Will suggest the box is a holder for old key cards and provides a great way for me to remember these trips. Thought I would mention it as a another possible presentation angle.

Am confused about how the specatator's signed card goes back in the deck.

Is some handling of the cards by the magician required at this point?

Thanks!

Can someone let me know also the internal dimensions of the Standard box? Publicly (I don't see the problem in that) or privately?

Can someone tell me exactly where the u** connects? Having trouble finding as he points at the area but unclear where it is.

Bought the standard version. Had no clue what I was doing. Proceeded to sand the hell out of it breaking the chain and amateurly repairing it several times. Then I stripped it with strange chemicals and finally gave it a sloppy coat of oil based based stain, replaced the latch and applied some black felt.

I am now much happier with my haunted box.
