I have a double load dove pan, I know how it works and all, but I am having trouble trying to hide the second load pan from the sight of the audience. I could put it under a table but that will look suspicious when I go to pick it up, and not all of my props are big enough to hide the second pan behind. any suggestions? do you think I could hide the second pan behind the main load chamber also known as the "bottom" of the dove pan? I tried not to expose anything here, but I need suggestions.

Behind the bottom of the pan could work or maybe something as simple as a silk casually folded in half and laid on your table. Maybe cover the dove pan prior to using the prop with the silk. Then uncover it, lay the silk on the table and proceed with the effect. Just an idea...

Work on the body motion. Do have the second load under the table top. With the top in the right hand bend down to pick up the bottom production (first load) from the bottom of the pan with the left hand. The right hand clicks on the new load and goes on top of the production. All is well above and away from the table. This time when you lift the top it will appear to have all happened in your hands!

You stated that not all of your props are big enough to hide the second pan behind, but you only need one.

There is another little trick I use with the second load of a double load dove pan. I put a deck of cards under the bottom of the pan. That extra half inche helps get the load "clicked" in securely with only one hand. It also leaves a prop you can use. No one is surprised to see a deck of cards on a magicians' table.

Bob, your saying that there should be a deck of cards in the main chamber, cover the deck of cards with one load pan, causing the load pan to stick up a little? is that what your saying?

No, Put the deck on the shelf and set the second load pan on top of that. It will raise the pan about a half inche that will really help to make loading a one-handed job.

Sorry I did not make that clear.
