Thanks BanzaiMagic, I like your thinking about the English Penny. I tried some reproduction medieval coins but the reproduction coins I tried were made out very light metal and just don't feel right.

My TUC arrived last night. Wow! It is a real nice gimmick. Mine needed a little bit of adjustment to get it working smooth, but the instructions for adjusting solved that little issue. I should be able to do some cool stuff with this thing.

Mine arrived today and wow what cool idea. Only one complaint a little noisy when separating. But a little misdirection should handle that. A- for me only because of the noise.

Your complaint is not unique. There are several posts in the previous pages of this thread discussing problems of noise when opening. My Morgan TUC was very nearly silent from the moment I received it (perhaps because of the high silver content in the coin), but I did have some noise issues when I first used my clad Kennedy half TUC. Although routining is a fine solution to the problem, other solutions have been suggested to solve this problem. To save you time, I have located Mr. Tango's advice on adjustments:

Quote:
There are two ways to adjust a T.U.C.
One is the [method] we included in the pack, [which is to gently press on] the Kennedy face.
The other one is the way that my friend Fantasio discovered few days ago. He put a little square mask[ing] tape in the center of the magnet, it [diminished the ma*****c] force and the coin opened incredibl[y] easy.


For the tape option, several people have used mouse tape. Others have used the teflon circles made by Tango (properly trimmed).

You may find that the noise diminishes with use. I am not sure whether this is because you get a better feel for how to do the "move" silently the more you do it or because the edges smooth down a bit with wear. Whichever, my experience is that the noise issue definitely improves over time even if you make no adjustments to the TUC.

Hope that helps.

Regards,

Alan

I clear my throat to cover the noise. It's natural, and being that the spectators aren't expecting a noise, it goes un-noticed.

The noise problem seesm to be related only to the "Front" Opening Method and not with the alternative Opening Methods such as "Bottom." The ussue might be that the first is Synchonous (happens as part of the immediate displayed action), whereas the others are Asynchronous, often occuring when some other misdirective action is occuring. Thus, any noise is only a problem because the spectator's attention is focused on the coin at the moment of separation.

This is true of many other coin effects such as the Okito Box - and therefor not a limitation of the TUC specifically.

The book T.U.C. Appreciation adds many effects of an Asynchronous nature in which no comment about noise has ever been offered.

The key is to look at your presentaion and the totality of motions such as "In Transit" when considering noise, flash, click, etc. in any effect. I used to be concerned about getting a coin into a vanishing clip. When I quit worring about it -- so did the audience.

Good advice thank you!

Not yet, right now I'm concentrating in an new reel called T.U.R (tango ultimate reel) that will be introduced at the market in November, so I don't have time to shout, but I promise to launch TUC DVD this year. After finish with the producing process of the reel I will make a DVD for the reel and the TUC Miracles DVD.

I was one year working in a reel, just that, I hope market accept my reel, the most important thing for me is that every magician an open the reel, change the thread and fix any issue so easy. We are now making the first production in exclusive for Murphy, but I think this a subjet for other section.

Price U$D 89. Yes, it will be cheaper for his incredible quality, just wait to see one. Some of this advantage:
. Easy to use
· Efficient
· Effective
· Error free

Just wait 30 days more. T.U.R will be a revolution as T.U.C was in coin magic.

I second that. The Kartis box has some great innovations. I love the 20 coin production; a dollar sized box would be excellent!
Nothing to do with TUC though. Also, is it possible to release a non-'Boston' Kartis box? I.e. exactly the same, just without the 'Boston' feature?
