I have not been able to find the 3M glue stick that Daniel recommends for his Fraud routine.
I have tried other glue sticks but I cannot get them to "un-bond".
Anyone using anything else?
Thank you,
Aaron

I found that glue at Wal-Mart also. You have to watch that you do not put to much on or it wont slide well. Before I perform, sometimes I take it off and put it right back on, making it just right.

I remember Daniel said that it was a 3M glue stick, or some kind of "tacky" stick.
What exactly are you guys using?
Thanks,
Aaron

3M makes a glue stick made out of Post-It adhesive. Light hold, releases clean. Is that the stuff?

Yea, I found that out the hard way. I tried performing it and it didn't move for quite sometime, so I use your idea also.

I'm using Scotch Restickable Glue Stick... I'm pretty sure that's exactly what he said to use.

3M makes Scotch. The stick you want is Scotch re positionable Glue Stick. Most good Art Supply stores carry this.

Speaking of glue and sticky things.
If you are using scotch tape to hold anything, you will find a better solution if you go to an art supply store and get a roll of (low tack) drafting tape. It is designed to be used and pulled off of paper yet hold things down very well.

What I posted here, has nothing to do with the performance of the trick. I am very careful about exposure on the open forum. Please read the post more carefully.

If, like me, none of your local stores carry this (or anything remotely similar), you can buy it off most websites (SAM's, Office Depot, etc., etc.). Just Google it, and you'll find it.

Actually, Aaron, it can be found in most towns that have any kind of art supplies.
You can get it at Hobby Lobby Creative Center at 2805 Southwest Pkwy in Wichita Falls. They carry it in two sizes in their technical department.

It is always good to try to shop "off line" when you can; no waiting and no shipping charges.

My favorite effect in magic. I just love this one. Brilliant. Its one of those that just stops the gears from spinning when the spectator sees it.
