Hello Rick!! I manufacture both trunks and milk cans and I find they both occupy about the same space.If you feel your trunk is to big and heavy won't the milk can also be a burden??

Richard isn't the Milk Can a Bit Heavier then the Trunk. also the Milk Can is more Delicate.

Hi Richard...
can you produce something for me as what appears in the link that Harry gave me ? I mean the "water cube of doom"...I like the small size, and the simplicity of it. I'd rather keep my money in Canada, NO CUSTOMS !!!

Richard, if you can produce something like that for me...we are in business...I'll PM you with my phone number if you wish to ask any questions.
I notice that cell locks with only 1 lock...I'd like 3...front and 2 sides...the back has a hinge, needless to say.

LOL...Donny, the cube is 22 inches square and 32 inches high. The WTC is what, maybe 5 or 6 feet high ? Quite a difference. But yes, they are in the same family. I'm looking for something compact that an old man like me can pick up (empty) and put it in the back of my wife's hatch back car.

Richard makes probably the best looking milk can I've ever seen. Owens is ok...but to "magic store prop" looking. The price is important as well...easy on me, Richard, I'm just a poor white boy.

That Cube of doom is just the cat's meow for someone like me.

Richard's "tank" is a great looking prop! Deadly and claustrophobic!! The price gives me a bit of sticker shock at first glance but then it is one quality product so well worth it. Another good link to some great props! Thanks!!

Frankly, I would not use the topographical cuffs (oval link chain cuffs). I would go with “regulation” looking cuffs and maybe an eyebolt in the bottom to be cuffed to.

Richard's Milk Can is a beautiful looking piece. How much does it differ from Tillfords model... To be honest I probably would never buy from Tillford but that is a completely different subject!

I'll avoid the Tilfords Model. as it is not 100% Examinable. Don,

That answers my question... I would want it to be examinable... any other pros or cons?

Byran,

Don’t buy a milk can yet! Before you spend over a grand (USD) on a prop you might want to read my discussion of the milk can escape at:

http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......forum=18

It mentions some logistical considerations performing the bit.

I say start with an inexpensive, easy to build prop and see if you can really fit it into your act.

Actually I used the magnets too.

When I first created it I wanted to make it a "no brainer" for anyone to build.

The context, that is often missed, is that here is something that you can walk away from, it totally a killer. Yet, nothing could be easier or safer.

I have a new version I created for steve which is one 55 drum, turned upside down and placed in an 85 drum filled with water.

Thanks Harry, to my knowledge, no one but you ever built one. I first spoke of it in a lecture in 1985.....

If they ask about the biohazard sign....

Mark, it is difficult to understand why anyone wanting to perform an underwater escape would not build your creation. I would have bet money that several, if not dozens, of EA’s had built the thing!

I got the necessary materials over the course of one day’s running around and assembled the prop the next day (in accordance with your instructions)! The whole thing was a weekend project! Modifications did not occur until I had performed it a few times.

Frankly, your post was a “head slapper” for me! As soon as I read it I knew it was workable and doable! You gave away gold there man. It is strictly a no brainer in terms of construction and presentation. I have performed it at two different county fairs and several small town street festivals.

In fact the beast is sitting on a trailer in my driveway rightnow. I had a small town festival gig yesterday (Saturday). I was contracted to perform four sets over the course of the day. The early two sets were mainly rope and straightjacket work (100 foot of rope challenge tie). The third set (larger crowds) closed with Bakers’ Belt and for the final set I closed with the Tripp Drum (after dark under lights). I really sold the last two sets during the first two and during some street busking I did in the hours between sets. I had other performers/acts pump the danger during the day. I had a good crowd and got a good reaction/response.

The drum in a drum prop sounds exciting! Thanks for the biohazard tag line!
