I do agree the concept of Antigravity rock is nice but it can't be done in most situation except filming, since the camera is fixed in position. It looks good to watch it in youtube but like I said it's a different story when perform it close up!
Best Regards,

Bob

How about Money Splash? Does it work as smooth as the Tenyo video?

Thanks,
John
Nothing is better than more.

Richard, what do you mean with 'exactly', because I do follow the instructions for Excalibur but it doesn't work ... the coins never slide all the way to the end.

Also, I'v had a few wonder windows and there's only one that works OK. Also, here, is there something that needs extra attention?

Killertweety I finally made it work a Tenyo Excalibur!!...I made a video demo with the apparatus working soooo smooth..will upload it to my youtube channel this weekend...

Great! So you just rub oil on the US Quarter coins?

Yes...this plus a lot of trials that helped to spread the oil thru the different parts of the apparatus...

I have heard that mineral oil is good for lubricating plastic. Maybe that would work here. I think it is less likely to spoil.

Nice video, and nice little illusion!

Richard Kaufman said,"Wonder Window is a great trick: you just have to practice it." And yet, it says right there on the bottom front of the package: This trick requires no practice. (!) Tenyo Forever Ribbon says the same thing, and yet, if you didn't practice it a couple of dozen times, you'd surely blow the trick the first time out.

I think we all know that there is so such thing as a trick that does not require some practise. I have had two Wonder Windows and both have worked great. In fact it is one of my Tenyo favorites.

I just used myWonder Window for the first time and it worked 90%. I think I account for the 0% that didn't work smoothly. Overall, I am impressed. Remember, this was one of the few tricks usurped by Henning and Steinmeyer for their never released set of Tenyo tricks.
Ok, I'll meet you at the place near the thing where we went that time.

I wasn't very enthousiastic when I got my first Wonder Window - the darn think got stuck every time. I have had quite a few Wonder Windows since then (including a few I 'tested' before selling because the buyers asked me to) and all of them (about 6 or 7) worked flawlesly. You do have to follow the instructions carefully, for example when sliding the gimmick to the center make sure your 'middle bar' clicks when it reaches the center, don't stop too early.

The first time EVER I did not buy a new Tenyo item immediately when it was released because it is so obvious ... . I'll buy it eventually and expect the worsed possible, then it will perhaps turn out to be not THAT bad ... Smile

Well, as a real 'magic' trick I agree for adults, but it's GREAT for children!
Also, as a 'gag' for adults it is also good Smile Tenyo released much worse tricks then this imho. My alltime favourites remain 'Money Cutter' and 'China Surprise'.

Well in my case it does not (well, 10% of the time it does not), but to be honest I just tested it (with USA currency) for the second time in my life (a few times of course). Perhaps this needs good practice to shake the apparatus 'in the good way'?

Anyone else have an opinion about this? In the Difatta video on youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yv8VSaEuz5k) it works great ... .

Also, does this work with certain EURO-coins?

By the way, I really don't like Tenyo always (wel, in the past) using Dollar currency for their tricks (exception: Trisector had a manual for other currency, not for EURO at that time - anyone know how to use EURO bills ... ?). I really hope the Tenyo company will have money-tricks in the future with EURO-coins or -bills ... .

Tunnel of Darkness...not worst per se...but often the red die falls free of the cage and lid when it emerges from the tunnel. Now to be fair...I try to do it as Magic Patagonia does on his video (his amazing videos squeeze every ounce of potential for each Tenyo trick)...ie pulling the white die/cage through the tunnel without anyone holding both ends. This is not how the instructions advise. The instructions specifically state that the magi should cover both ends and that the spec should pull the chain and run the thing through the tunnel. My guess is that by doing this it DOES make it surefire. Otherwise the red die, cage and lid might end up a mess at the end.

Anyone play with this?
