I'm not quite sure, however the m5 is supposed to be "the most powerful pk gimmick on the market"? I'm not sure and I also know that quote isn't exactly right but very close. I know the part about it being the best is right though. Can anyone tell me if the X-flip coin is what you guys wanted?

No radio Shack in the Uk? indeed, yes we do. It is a company called Maplin. They just trade under a different name in the UK!

The X-Flip coin at ellusionist is not available in U.K. as it is a different currency. Is there somewhere that sells them in the U.K.?

I use a medium size Pk, and you can get this from industrial warehouses. As for the watch thing, yes you can damage the expensive kind very easy.

I discovered that in the U.S., Hobby Lobby sells cheap, small and powerful magnets that I've used for many PK-effects. The ones at Hobby Lobby come in at least three different sizes and don't cost much anything but they're not as large and powerful as the bat or the M5.

Good luck,
UJ

Re: Bart's November, 13, 2002. post ("Try posting this question in the mentalism catagory, and I think you'll get some very helpful answers").

Is the mentalism section and other sections only open to someone, will you please advise how to navigate over to these specific category sections.

Also, how does a person check his prior posts. I forgot some threads I responded to and I'd like to keep up with those threads.

Thanks,

Turk

P.S. Regarding PK effects and street magic (or other close-up magic), is the PK effect (i.e. method) becoming so well known by laypersons that it is risky of getting
"grabbed" or otherwise exposed by a rude or obnoxious spectator? Any PK horror stories in this vein and how you overcame the same?

Vernet makes a TT that contains a rare earth magnet in it for $10. I got mine from magicsmith.com

The M5 uses a huge neo magnet, 2"x2" x "0.5" You can get smaller, but reasonably sized and equally powerful magnets in old h********. PM me if you really want to know. I get my magnets there and it's cheap, easy and works perfectly well. Smile

If you have a old computer, there is a earth magnet inside of it.

Just to clarify the above post.
In the hard drive are the magnets you want (the L shape ones). Get an old knackered HD and get the magnets out.

The coin I use for the effect is the one I got with my flipper coin. It is magnetized steel pressed into form, then coated.

A way to use the magnet would be to attach a length of elastic to it, then use it as a pull to take it up your sleeve. (I bet I get modded for that last bit)

Red switch in a light bulb. I remember years ago hearing you could use a k to light a light bulb. After much asking-around research, I found out I needed a reed switch then; the problem became I could never find one of those. I just did a Google search after seeing the PK topic and found a reed switch supplier:
http://www.reedswitchdevelopments.com/

But I can't remember how a light bulb would be set up using one. Does any one know?

I bought some 2"X2"X1/4" Magnets N38 or N45 with the polarity THROUGH the THICKNESS but I found the magnetic sweat spot wasn't in the middle. It was more towards the ends or edges. Apparently you would need a long cone shaped magnet to do that. They were powerful enough to erase the Charge Cards though. Be careful what you wish for.

I also played with them through a table and was able to stand regular Canadian Loonies (naturally magnetic material) up on end and flip them over. When they found the centre of the magnetic field (not the magnet) they responded mysteriously.

I also had a Magi friend who demonstrated the time stopping properties on my watch. The watch then sat in my dresser for years, broken. Wound but unable to tell time. One day I took it out and it began to run. Sporatically at first, but now it runs fine, if you don't mind being early for appointments.

just my $25 worth...

What are Canadian Loonies? I bet we've got a few of them over here in the UK.

Candadian money is almost as wonderful as British.
So many pretty colours and sizes.

The Loon is a bird that we see on our lakes that has a unique call and is distinctively recognizable. It dives down and comes up somewhere else. It's a symbol of our vast remote wilderness.

The "Loonie" is our latest 1 dollar coin.
We also have a bi-metal "Twoonie" 2 dollar coin.
They have replaced our lower paper currencies.

The are magnetic in nature. If you carry a magnet in your pocket you can significantly reduce the chatter and ease their removal.

We also have lunie bins for our lunatics. Although most of us have been let out now, due to cutbacks.

Thanks G LaBarre,
I can now impress my mates with this new piece of knowledge - I'm pretty sure they don't know more than me about birds that dive!
Maybe we are lucky in the UK that our coins are not naturally magnetic - helps eliminate the possibility that magnets have been employed.
I don't use magnets but is there any way of magnetising the strip in paper money or do you clever lot replace it with something else?
Ta,
