Sorry - it was a joke only a few people would get.

I was talking about the thought transmitter.

I thought it was funny,

I´m a T.T.beginner and I feel I´m gonna love this tool but I wonder if it isn´t a bit dangerous in strolling and restaurant situations considering the short distance between gests and me.And there is also the side view (the profile view) problem .Should I keep the T.T.for other situations where the T.T.would be more invisible?


I have been using mine for over 20 years now and have never, ever been caught. I do small affairs and stroll from table to table or small group, etc. "They don't know about a thumb tip" just act natural. Wear it often around the house, pretty soon it will be just like wearing a ring - un-noticable. I use a couple, pre-loaded in my pocket. I even have an extra long one to hold a big load - it is really long, but no one ever sees it. Keep the hands moving and never look at it, practice, practice, practice. ~MagicAl~

20 years and never been caught? That´s very encouraging, it means it is very much "invisible". By now I´m having a technique problem: the "one hand pull of" of the TT. I find impossible to do it in a fast unnoticeble way. Needs some misdirection to cover the move. Anyway,things are getting better but its not easy.

thanks for the tips

Why get rid of it fast?
Be casual and ditch it as you go into your pocket for the next trick.

Jaz, the move I´m talking about is pull it off and palm it and then put it back again in the same T.All done with the same hand.

Not every one is that flexible. I know I'm not.
If your getting a 'vacumn effect' when trying to get it off, putting a small hole in the tip has been suggest here at the Café'.
Maybe you have it on too tight or just need more practice.

There is an invention here in Australia, the guy who makes them doesn't do many now because they're diffcult to make. Its not a generic TT Holder, it needs to be specially fitted to your TT's. It comes in a double or single with an optional bill holder, that way you can be set for a bill swicth with one tip, and cig vanishes with another. A Tip on the cig vanish ( see what I did there) put alfoil or I think you guys call it aluminium foil, in the bottom of the thing, so when its vanished and still lit, you don't ash the end because it shows through.

The holder is called the C-Clip.

Yes, it sounds interesting this c-clip. Is it purchasable? Where?

Young people tend to stick their whole thumb in. That is wrong. It should only go on the tip and fit snuggly and securely. Then it will be easy to manipulate. Get one the correct size or adjust it and you will be fine.

The maker of the C-clips has put off making them for a while, though he is going to start again soon as he has more products coming out. But, keep in mind if you have a favourite TT, he needs to have it to make the holder fit. When the manufacturer starts again I'll post the details for anyone interested.

I have also been sort of scared to use my thumb tip in close-up, nearly surrounded magic. My teacher wants me to do magic for the class and that's the first thing that comes to mind but there would be people in front of me and around the sides of me. I guess if I practice a lot it will be okay but it takes a lot of nerve to do it for the first time.

I, for one, am glad you're scared. That means you care about magic. Before you use it in a magical setting, walk around with one on wherever you go. Hold things up with your hand and ask questions. Point with your hand at things. Nobody notices. Once you're sick and tired of that, try a vanishing silk routine. Whjen you reveal the silk, you don't need to pull it all the way out, just part way will do.

The best advice I can give you on misdirection is this. A big move (misdirection) will always hide a smaller move (doing something with your TT). People will watch the bigger move. ~MagicAl

One more thing: there´s so much instructional material about TT that makes difficult for one to choose. I allready own Darwin´s dvd, and like to purchase more material(books included)to have an idea of the full potencial of that tool.Any suggestions?

Thank you guys for the advice.
kihei kid, who´s the author? Does he teach routines? I have Darwin´s DVDs with lots of tricks but not routines. I´m looking for routines.
thanks again

Kevin James. You can get them from his website kjmagic.com and yes all 3 volumes which I highly recommend all have routines, but, just as important, they will instruct you on how to utilize it properly.

Another plus for these is you will get to see differnt Magicians ideas on the TT.

A few years ago I heard of a routine Jeff McBride Shared at his lectures. The premise was that he produced a T.T. Streamer, tying it around a spectator's wrist ending with the idea that the spectator - (you) "are the MAGIC". I hope I didn't tip more than I should have, because I don't know if the routine is in print. I posted this because the routine as told to me ,must be a beautiful moment to witness. If anyone knows what I'm speaking of, please elaborate if possible. If the routine is published, please share the source. I would love to be able to perform it - and perform it correctly.
Thank you,

Quart, just get that little book by Milbourne Christopher: 'Fifty Tricks with a Thumb Tip'. Chock full of great ideas.


I'd second it wholeheartedly. The strange thing is, there are only 3 magic books in English here in The University of Taiwan, and Milbourne Christopher's great book is included!
A novice't reflection: I like watching my audience's jaws drop, but sadly in reality I'm just too busy to enjoy it. Smile

My favorite use for a thought transmitter is to use it with an invisible deck. I have the spec write down their card with the justification that there is no forgetting or changing their mind. I have them close the TT and then I put a rubber band around it and do the work at the same time. Now they don't have to even name the card they turn over in the invisible deck. I showed my dad this and he said "scary."
