Message: Posted by: deanbarlow (Jan 18, 2013 10:29AM)
Hi guys,
I have a Tenyo Billscape in superb condition with part original packaging and original instructions. It just requires an ordinary pin to do the pentration aspect of the effect. Anybody interested?

I would say go to any upholstery business and ask them for a few Upholstery
Pins/Skewers 4 inch long 16 gauge. No.190 will probably work perfect. If I owned a Billscape I would tell you for sure they will fit but that is all it is nothing special.

Take your Billscape with you make sure they fit in the hole. :)

I have a pile of them I use them in my locksmith work for years for different things so I buy them buy the box.

Wow they look just the job mr wizard, are they not slightly to thick though, I don't want to mutilate the hole in the brown case?

Very thin they make them in different diameters and lengths but that is the one I use the most. Just take the Billscape with you when you go shopping.

Ok I said 4 inch long I just checked they are only 3 inch, just seemed like it had to be 4 inch. ;)

So you want to find Osborne Upholstery Skewers SKU: 190S-3 They are 12.99 for a box of 36 here.

That is just like you Mr.Wizard to over estimate the length of something. ;–)

MrWizard, we Americans are not a fortunate as our friends who use the metric system.

10 centimeters sounds much more impressive than 4 inches. ;–)

I think those are the same ones that some people here at the Café use with his John Mazza Voodoo Doll. ;–)

John

Those are the ones alright. :)

I want to add you may want to dull the point a little so as not to impale yourself although depending on the crowd pulling your hand from behind the billscape with a little blood dripping down your arm might add to the moment. ;)

I could have used that 10 centimeters line in the past but that cat is long out of the bag. ;)

Although if you want to show off with a 4 inch - 100mm skewer the ref number would be 190-4. They would be sure to go through the Billscape and your hand. ;)

Thank you for coming....drive safe!

As an aside I got myself a Billscape recently and just sat down to learn it.
What a great trick!

I am really pleased with the effect. It is not only one of the strongest Tenyo effects in my opinion but can really hold its own as an effect regardless of manufacturer.
I was expecting it to be more difficult for some reason but in fact it is very easy to perform, almost self working.

SUPER strong effect, not toy like and unique. While I was a bit disappointed with Tunnel if Darkness I'm pleasantly surprised by Billscape.

It's totally the best Tenyo effect by a country mile. Always bamboozled the specs. Just wish I had a spare mint one. Mine's showing a fair bit of use now.

If Tenyo Elite ever decides to do Billscape, the first thing should probably be plates that are more scratch resistant. And a leather wallet would be nice too. But that'll never happen. Well, wishful thinking never hurt anyone. (I hope) ;)
