I am curious about this kit. Is it a full routine? What are the extras besides the coin dropper. Love to hear more.

Thanks,

From Hank Lee's blog;

Porper Dice Stacking Kit: This unique dice cup set is designed from space-age materials and offers one of the finest cups ever made for stacking dice. In addition, the mechanical dice and coin loaders are like nothing ever seen before.

Joe Porper’s goal was to create a dice cup that was indestructible and one that would handle easily, stack easily and look like something a pro would use.

First the cup. It is thin walled and flexes so you can hold the loaders inside with a squeeze. In fact, that’s how your release the 20 coin stack. Being thin-walled makes it far easier to do the “decapitation” stack (where you pick off one die at a time from a stack). The “Dice Loader” was inspired by a holder Pete Biro obtained over 20 years ago, designed by the late Peter Kane. It was a totally different type of holder. This holder drops dice “one-at-a-time” and is the perfect starter for a dice stacking routine. It can also be used as a dice penetration through the cup, much like the Charlie Miller cups and balls move.

The Coin Dropper is a completely new and original creation from the mind of Joe Porper that silently and mechanically drops a load of twenty quarters.
A beautiful set. Exactly what you would expect from Joe Porper.


Don't know if a routine is included, but that should give you some ideas.

Thanks Randy, I read it too, but was wondering what would make it so expensive. Is it the materials that its made out of or is it a new way to load the cup? I was hoping Mr. Pete Biro could add some of his thoughts.

The mechanical loaders (2) are incredibly complex to make, yet simple to operate. I like to start with the dice loader already in. You place the cup down on the table,lift it and there is one die. Repeat until all four are produced, one at a time. Then you can do your stacking, etc.

The coin stack loader mechanically drops a huge stack of quarters when you lift the cup. The dice are casino quality 3/4 inch. The cup is made of a material that is very light, but strong and thin walled... it looks very modern.

Hey Steve V, I am in Hong Kong. I am staying here indefinitely man. There's lots going on here too. Especially with the Vegas boys moving into Macau ( Portughuese colony that just went back to China) Shanghai is buzzing too. Anyhow, thanks for the shout.

Got it Vandy, won't happen again. heh heh

Thanks Pete, sounds fantastic! Is it a silent load of the coins? or do you reveal them at the same time they drop? Anyhow, looks great!

Best,

You reveal them WHEN YOU WANT TO... they are held in place and the release is subtle and sure.

I ordered one of Joe Porpers dice cups from a dealer and found a chip in the rim.
After bringing it to the owners attention they put me in touch with Mr. Porper and soon I was on the phone with Joe and he told me he personally had hand picked out his BEST dice cup that he had in the shop.
Then, sent it directly to me ASAP.
Now that's CLASS.
A true gentleman.
Thanks Again Joe.
Much appreciated.
Peace on the Magical Streets
