Just got an email with this and thought of this thread.

Hope this will work for you. I may grab one in a month or two after seeing some reviews.

Poof-Daddy's suggestion is for a device that is a dropper -- it secretly places the coins in the hand. But if I understood the original post correctly, the problem was getting the drop from the hand to the pail synched properly, which is an entirely different issue.

While the dropper might be useful in other ways, I don't think it will help solve the poster's problem. SETH

I realized that later. It was a different thread from a while back where someone was looking for something like this. Smile
My bad, but it looks like a cool dropper as opposed to the ”el cheapo” one I have.

Mr. Rocket: Did you read the thread?

Not strange! He asked for help. I offered to help him. He didn't have the courtesy to acknowledge the offer, and, he didn't bother to make a contact.

BTW, in a previous post on this topic, I did suggest the use of a dropper --- actually a "coin dumper" --- to use as a possible finale for the Miser's Dream. This is a device that quietly delivers a stack of about 8-10 half dollars into your cupped hand. It holds the stack securely until you're ready for it and works solely by gravity on a cam principle, with no springs, buttons or fancy mechanisms to hang up or go wrong. It should last indefinitely with reasonable care, and the cost is only about $5. Check The Magic Warehouse, Robbins or your favorite dealer if you're interested.

On the other hand, you can accomplish exactly the same thing without a dumper, by stealing a few coins from the pail as you're demonstrating how many coins you've magically plucked from the air. But the dumper lets you do it without going near the pail first, if that's a dealbreaker for you. SETH
