Hi Mr Tango, I love my TUC but I sometimes think I would prefer the M----- to be a little stronger, is there a way to replace it with a different one or strengthen the original one? The reason I ask is that I often find the coin "slipping" during the matrix effect.

MailMan, you can solve the problem in 5 seconds, just put a small piece of masking paper in the center of the magnet and it will become weak.

About the coin across, thank you very much for your words, actually I think that I can make it better, I always perform that routine in my show and I didn't be comfortable with the cam angle, anyway I'm happy. In my first DVD there is a coin across but not this one, I will include this TUC Coin Across in the new DVD.
About the new DVD, let me say that one month ago before to go to my UK tour I hit my middle finger nail and I have this nail totally black now, I'm waiting to pass this small problem to continue shooting the DVD. I think it will be ready for the next FISM congress in July.

Hi Mr Tango, I mean how do you make the magnet stronger not weaker, I have no problems with the gimmick staying together but the problem comes with lifting the S--- C--- with the gimmick fully assembled; I am using the 2 pound coin version and it is too heavy for the M----- to hold the whole thing together on the S--- and so it slides off.

Other than that I love the product Smile

I took a pin on style button, used scissors and cut the tin into a small circle. I have Teflon discs from tango magic. Just placed it under the teflon and since the tin is so thin, it is attracted to the m****t just enough to toss it in the air without separating. At the same time, when holding the unit in spellbound position, it falls out under its own weight.

For those who may have been fortunate to handle the 2 pound version and the 10pence version (UK) which do you feel is the better coin to handle. There is a big difference in the size of each coin and wondered if the size would make a difference in the handling and operation of the gimmicks. I know TheMailMan has expressed an issue above regarding the weight of the 2 pound version which has an effect on the workings of the gimmick.

As I would only perform this for walk around/strolling the effects I would use would probably only be 3fly and coins across. This question goes out to anyone I think. Do you feel bigger coins are easier to handle than smaller coins? Especially when having to work the gimmicks?

Thanks

10 pence is better but 2 pounds works too.

If somebody has interest to take lessons with me about TUC routines by skipe please contact me by PM. I would like to try to teach thru this way.
It won't be cheap because is my time but not so expensive.

I also fell in love with that coins across. Since I'm using Ike dollars now, I'm interested in the Eisenhower TUC. I've heard, however, that they won't pass muster in close-up situations with good lighting. If anyone has this set and can PM me about it, I'd very much appreciate it.

I use Morgan dollars in my close up routine so you can use the IKE without problems

It depends on what you are using it for. The "leaf" is thin and should not be shown on edge. If you are doing a matrix effect and some kid's head is only 6 inches above your table, it might be an issue. In the hands and viewed from above should not be a problem with the right handling.

I don't see how lighting would be an issue. I have a Morgan TUC that can be shown on both sides with more confidence than any of my other gaffs (except my Lassen coins).

If you want to perform the matrix that I perform with TUC, Ike or Morgan size doesn't work, in this case you have to use half dollars and smaller coins.
I open my shows with 3 fly routine and close with coin across and I always use Morgan coins

There are a dozen "coins across" effects in "T.U.C. Appreciation" in additon to the several Tango verions.

"T.U.C. Appreciation" is a worthwhile investment if you own a T.U.C.
