I saw in the new york coin seminar DVD (All I'm going to say to protect this method) a trick the utilizes a gaff made out of 3 coins soldered together. Can I buy this gaff anywhere with just 2 coins soldered together?

Years ago I made my own using thin strips of solder that had a low heat melting point.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to find those strips.
Maybe I should check an electrinics outlet.

I'd imagine you could use some JB Weld, or similar two-part adhesive to do a similar job without the need for a soldering iron. Keep us posted!

MagicBosely, is that like a glue or something? Where can I find some of that? I will check with Mike too to see if he can help me a little bit.

JB Weld is a common cold weld substitute- a two-part epoxy reinforced w- powdered steel...

Mix equal parts of the resin and catalyst and it cures in a few hours...

Available at nearly any hardware store as well as Home Depot, etc...

You just missed a sale on ebay. Three two-coin soldered sets. Kennedy, walking liberty half, and English Penney. I thought that they were flippers, but the seller said that they were soldered. The silver alone was worth the winning price. What trick uses soldered coins? They can only be shown as two coins but yet they are stuck together. I don't see the purpose.

Here is the link to the ebay sale. The seller may be able to identify where they were purchased.

You're welcome, Mark. I almost bid on them, just for the walking liberties. But since I have no idea what the gaff is for, I would have separated the coins.

David Neighbors mentioned a glue that he uses to create that gimmick in an earlier post but I couldn't find the post.

I had purchased a soldered pair of half dollars from him years ago. But recently he mentioned he uses a particular kind of glue. PM him and ask.

P.S. It is a great gimmick for doing a very visual matrix with a backfire.

E-6000 tends to turn a yellowish color after about a year or so. There's a similar product called "FixAll" that would work and it stays clear and colorless forever. I tried to search the web for a website but came up empty. Im pretty sure that it is not the one made by Super Glue. Ill take a look at work tomorrow and let you know.

JB Weld is pretty good stuff- A friend used it to fix the cracked bell-housing on his toyota truck's transmission. Held for quite a while- at least until he traded it in, anyway...

Heres a link to the Fix-All. Its made by a company called Multi-Mist. Unfortunately, it is not available on the internet (atleast I couldn't find it) but they sell it at my local hardware store so it might be available at a hardware store near where you live. Heres a link to the information page about it:

http://www.certifiedlabs.com/certified/p......+FIX+ALL

Also, if you want, it can be removed at a later date with little to no damage on metal.
