When I go my first TUC (used) it didnot have a card with it, so I obtained one on-line from a magic shop. I have never had a problem with it. When compared to the one that came with Quarter TUC it seems bit thicker. I doubt that Mr. Tango makes his own sh**med cards, so perhaps there is a difference from set to set of cards.

Thus, I would try a differend card before worrying about the TUC strength. I have an ancient card with a razer balde inside that if far too "attractive."

Very useful advice, I have been playing around with a spare shim disk and if I put it on the back of the card the full TUC sticks like glue so the magnet seems OK, I will purchase a new shim card and see if that solves the problem. Tango Magic might want to check out their shim cards.

I hope this hasn't already been asked but, are there any plans for a Poker Chip T.U.C.?

He does actually - one of his guys recently had a pretty bad accident; whilst cutting the shimmed metal sheeting I do believe. Smile

Just to add that the Tango Shimmed Cards are the very best that I've ever seen. They compliment the quality of the T.U.C. beautifully.

I have a dilema, looking for some advice. I've been considering an Ike shell for a while now. I'm reasonably skilled with coins & I like the shell as it can be shown as an individual coin. Does the TUC allow this or is it more like a flipper in that respect?

Any TUC can be displayed as a normal coin, tossed from hand to hand and even placed in a spectator's hand. When Split it cannot stand close examination but the complete TUC can. In fact, one problem is "ossong" the TUC amoungs a pile of coins, but it is easy to "test" the TUC secretly in the fingertips.

Additionally, several TUC in a stack can be handled like a single coin for Loads, Ditches and many Sleights

Mr. Tango, forum folks,
I have a Walking Liberty TUC which works really well (round m****t). But I'm having a problem working with the shimmed card supplied with the TUC.

I'm working on the Matrix effects Mr. Tango shows in his DVD. For most of the effect, the TUC is apart, and the m**n*t*c s***l is allowed to 'stick' to the shimmed card as needed (for vanishes). With my TUC s***l free to cling to the shimmed card, if I lift the card from a horizontal to vertical position, my m**n*t*c s***l slides down to the bottom of the card, and sometimes falls off of its own weight.

At the end of the routine, you secretly assemble the TUC (s***l plus in***t) and lift it up 'stuck' to the shimmed card. Most of the time, my TUC simply drops off, even if the card is held horizontally; the TUC's own weight is too much for the m****t.

Does anyone else have this issue with a half dollar TUC(I know the dollar coins are not recommended for this use.)? The m**n*t seems strong on my TUC - I can stick it to the side of a file cabinet and it doesn't move - so I don't know if shimmed cards differ in their ability to hold a m**n*t, or what else it might be.

Any ideas are appreciated. I know I've talked about a lot of inner workings here; I hope it's not too much for folks.

I have the same problem with my TUCs and the shi..ed card. The coin always falls off and cannot do the matrix effect at all with the card supplied.. I will have to find another card to see if that will work. It is a great coin though.

If you have any problems with any of your sh****ed cards, may I recommend the sh****d and m******c cards that you can obtain from Mimesis Magic.

I recomend to use smaller coins to make the matrix as quarter, 50 cent euro or 10 pence coins. But anyway I have to say that I use half dollar coins too and if you use the card carefully you should do it.

What is "ossong"?

And I'm still unsure about this. When split you can't put one in one hand & one in another? And it won't stand close examination? Seems like I'd better off with just a shell surely?

You can show a split TUC in two separate hands just as you can show a standard shell and insert coin. The comment about close examination means that you can not hand the TUC out (but then again, you wouldn't hand out the shell either).

Although there are many advantages to a TUC, there are some disadvantages, particularly as to the thickness of the insert. You might be wise to read some pages back on this thread.

Good man Alan, exactly what I wanted to know. I'm leaning towards the shell as I don't want any difference in appearance close up & thickness is something that could be noticed. I will however make an effort to see a TUC before making a final decision.

Sorry "ossong" should be "losing" -- arthritus strikes again.

I often use an EXP Sh**l in combination with the TUC -- and Tango now has a SHi***d Slippery Sam to use with the TUC. There are so many effects available for the TUC that you can select what is best for any particular audience "on the fly" and many that simply cannot be done with Sh**l alone.

My Morgan TUC arrived yesterday! It is fantastic! I applaud Mr. Tango for the excellent attention to detail in all of his products! If you are a TUC fan, contact Mr. Tango and have him manufacture a Morgan TUC for you. Looking forward to the new TUC DVD. Thanks Mr. Tango!!!

I have the TUC half dollar and love it. I want Mr Tango to make a TUC using the copper walking liberty coin....It would look great. I also got Funsways book, which tells a lot of good info and is worth a read.
