Besides Wonder Window apparently having a common manufacturing defect, is anyone really fooled by it? I've shown Magic Patagonia's youtube presentation video to 4 people, and 3 out of the 4 had it figured out in under a minute.

For me: 4/4 Smile The first time I bought the trick I even knew how it worked! I agree, it is 'kind of' inspectable before and after, but come on ... this trick is so obvious ... .
I really don't understand why this is some people's one of the best Tenyo items ... . Of course, it is a nice mechanism, that is true Smile

Anyone who might be fooled with the classic Penetration Frame I would think would easily be fooled with Wonder Window.

I'll try it again Bill, this time with my students, see how much of the 19 figure out how it was done Smile

About Tunnel Of Darkness, you are absolutely right (at least I have had this problem too a lot of times - it works a bit better when you pull the chain fast, at least that is my experience, but then it looks weird/unrealistic), so I also let people hold/close both ends with their hands.

Stereo, thanks for the advise. Just bought a spare one from Hitomi and will 'make' it into a EURO-trisector Smile

Still stick by Wonder Window. I love this effect and think people are fooled with it. The opening is so fine you can show both sides of the window before penetrating it with the card. My favorite of the Tenyo penetration effects. The fact that that you can remove the "glass" panel and have it examined sets it apart from the Glass Borad and Mystery Triangle. It is always one of my top go to items when pulling something from the "Tenyo cabinet of mystery" to show a friend.

Cheers,

John

In my case, it would be "Tenyo Box of Mystery". Smile

I agree - would be tempting, and I also agree: in my case you would only see 21 cardboard boxes (can't display them any longer due to the growing collection and the steady place.... Smile

Too late my friend, too late! The "tunnel" was part of one of my first close up programms...about 30 years ago!
And only now I know the risk... *shudder* ;-)

I've found (and know) only Tenyo's "Black Hole" - I'm looking for "Sliding Hole" - or better "Sliding Holes" 1 - 18 ;-)

A while back on this thread...Excalibur was being discussed and Magic Patagonia suggested using cooking oil to help lubricate...then Dragonash suggested mineral oil. Has anyone else tried either of these? Is either one better on Tenyo plastic?

I just received an Excalibur this week. Tried it last night and it worked OK... not sure if I got lucky... what is the main issue that people are having with this?

I wasn't necessarily singling out Excalibur...but Tenyo's typical moving plastic parts in general.

I understand Towledge. There has been chatter in the past on issues with Excalibur and was curious what the main problem was.

Cheers,

John

What I meant was for other Tenyo effects with moving plastic parts...what do you guys think would work better...cooking oil or mineral oil to help lubricate? I'm purposely being vague as I don't want to reveal any secrets for specific tricks.
