I used my homemade flashgun last night in my first performance.

I started with a Rising Card from a borrowed deck (LeClair), then a Pen Through Quarter, and finished with an Appearing Card (flash). They were pretty amazed.

My design is electronic but is too large. The AA battery and tube are just too big and they get caught when retracting via pull.

Does anyone know what kinds of batteries can be used for a 1.5 V glow plug? I need to miniaturize my device.

Triple A size... same setup, just thinner and slightly shorter. Or you could do like the cheap laser pointers and make a stack of button cells.
