Another problem,

It seems as if I will never have a finished act. Anywho, I am producing a wine glass, I need to build or purchase a holder for the steal. I want the glass to hang/clip in, upsidedown. I would need a holder that would allow me to just reach into my coat and take the wine glass right out. any ideas, books, gimmicks, videos, etc, that can be pointed out to me would be great. Also if you have any ideas where the glass is upright that is great too.


Thanks again guys,

DJ

Also,


I need the steal to be quick and clean, I am looking for a holder that will allow easy removal of the glass, kinda like butter.

I made up one from a wire coat hanger works well for what I needed at the time.

2 Ideas come to mind... However, they may not work well if you plan on having liquid in the glass...

One is a modified billiard ball clip, made larger (the kind with two loops)

The second one is Paul Gertner's (sp?) from his Silver and Steel (I think that's the name...) videos. He has a method for producing a large hour glass. A slight modification would allow you to produce the glass either upside down or right side up.

I second the holder from Paul Gertner's Steel and Silver DVD. The steal of the load will be like "butter" (with practice of course).

Pete is correct, go here: http://www.stevensmagic.com/shopping/shopexd.asp?id=1387

There is 2 holders you can make yourself. One is a suckion cup on elastic, that will stick to the bottom of the glass upside down. This hangs under your coat at chest level. The other is just a loop of elastic that goes around the base of a stemed glass. The weight of the glass will hold the elastic in place an not slip out. Just kick it off with your thumb.

These ideas are by the late Sam Berland and Joe Berg.

Hello all. I'm looking for an updated link for this solution. I currently in the same scenario where I need a holder such as the one Paul Gertner has around his shoulder. I tried the above links to no avail. They seem to have changed since originally posted. Any help is much appreciated.

Stevens Magic has recently advertised one again, call them, ask for Mark Stevens.

You have to make the Paul Gertner method, but it does not show a way to seal the glass.

Read the Sam Berland idea above.
