I'm trying to find out who the builder of this version of the Head Mover is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dily6L7QJDo
Also if there aren't any commercial builders is this in the public domain and could there be a plan source available.

Thanks

Hocus Pocus has a secondhand version of this for sale NOW for $295. It's in the Private Estate Tricks section.

Goswick Magic has it in one of his books.

Allan, I believe the one at Hocus Pocus was build by Snap Illusions. Anyone who knows the story of Snap would avoid this.
Illusionman2 I looked at Goswick's version but it looks like a different effect.

As I recall the "old" Tilford Illusions used to feature this effect, probably still a few of them around, don't see it on the "new" Tilford site though.

$295? Sounds like a bargain. I really wonder how that would play from the side angles from an audience POV. In the video, Its way too easy to see the secret being communicated. Maybe live its not as apparent.

I've purchased the Goswick book we'll see what I can come up with.
Thanks for all the input.

I built head squeeze and alien abduction (can't find pix of head squeeze.
I liked Alien Abduction better.

Another thanks to everyone who gave me advice. I did purchase the Goswick book so I thought I would give an assessment of the book.
First off I already knew the method of the head mover and I wanted to make sure I wasn't poaching anyone's invention so I purchased the book I will base my illusion on.
The book does have some clever thinking on various ways to vanish, torture, or generally "magic" an assistant's head.
The book itself is small, the drawings are small and lack details a beginning builder would need. The drawings and brief description give you the major points of the construction but are a bit short on measurements or some construction details.
I will invest in some of his other works because I can see things in his creativity that appeals to me. Just consider if you don't have building experience you may need to do more experimentation to get everything just right.
I encourage you to look at this site and some of his offerings. Overall I'm happy with the purchase.

I agree with this review--- and also like his out of the box thinking. Can you tell your idea 61magic??
