Question for owners;

When DP demo's this on the dvd - he seems to be affecting the bend with the coins of his cv1 gimmick facing upwards. Given that he bends upwards and towards himself, this means he's bending the coin against the SHARP edge of the cv1 gimmick, and not the smooth rounded edge.

Has anyone else noticed this? To me, the only way I can affect the bend on the soft rounded edge using the same motion as him is to turn the original cv1 gimmick so the coins are on the underside.

am I making sense?

I just tried reverse bending the coin as you suggest. For me this makes the bend more difficult, that is more strength required.
I think CV1 has been designed for maximum leverage.
I don't know whether it is Australian coins,but the CV1 never leaves a mark when done the way DP does it and I've been through quite a few coins.

The thing is - on the dvd for 2.0, he is definately bending coins against the 'sharp' i.e. non rounded edge of the gimmick. I've watched it ten times and freeze framed it.

I can't comment on 2.0 as I don't have it. But I believe the CV1 was designed to bend on the sharp edge, at least this is the way I started doing it and still do. You get more leverage doing it this way.

Hmm, that's interesting - one would think it would have been designed to bend on the smooth/curved edge.

anyway - thanks for the input chapelly really appreciate it!

anyone else doing the exact same?

Hi aukt,

I do the bend exactly like he does. It works perfectly and no marks on US coins. I find it's easier to bend when you have more coins in your hand. Hope that helps.

I will stay with my QB 2.0. I love it and I love the reactions you get.

Question: do you really need the PK Block that WorldMagicShop sells in order to do Penn's extra handling on the DVD? How about using a good PK ring or an M5? Is there anything special about the PK block that justifies the 35 pound expense? I'm thinking "no," but if I'm wrong, please educate me. Thanks.

I've tried a PK ring and it isn't powerful enough.

The PK block is a super powerful magnet, A Pk Ring is not powerful enough, because remember it has to attract the coin and move it through their hand.

So as far as I'm aware, without going to a specialist magnet supplier, this is the only one available.

Shawn farquar has one that is built into a wrist band and is super powerful, perfect for what you guys are trying to accomplish. Here's the link, it's called MatriXpress, also, pick up his other effects, totally awesome imo!

Thanks! Does the wrist band look innocent? Are we talking leather here, or one of those rubber wrist bands that were hot a couple of years ago?

Can anyone compare the PK block with the M5? I'm assuming the block is smaller than the M5, but is there any reason to get the block if you already have the M5? Sounds like you need cover for either, so the wrist band might be the way for many situations.

This type of wrist band looks like the type someone would workout with, black, wide and stretchy

What's funny is I wrote that routine, and it was provided with the SL Coin Bender in 2001. It was in my lecture, and I gave it to Steve Lancaster after he showed me the prototype. And that is when I made the wrist bands to go along with that routine and all the PK stuff I do. So nice Mr Penn just takes what he wants, and actually admitts he bought all the benders, and dismissed them, and this is the routine "he" came up with. Sure after seeing what everyone else worked on for years.

Gosh, that's quite a revelation. I hope Dave pops up here with a response.

I bought coinvexed I and II in good faith.

I hope it was a case of independent invention and not simply lifting another's material for material gain.

Jim wrote me about all of this. And I deleted all of my stuff, as Jim will always be someone I respect and consider one of the best. Like I said, the rest just didn't matter.

Hi, just received Coinvexed 2 today, and have already just about destroyed my hands - I'm obviously doing something very wrong! Really would appreciate if somebody could PM me with a little advice.

Many thanks,
Grant
