Since one of the Features of the TUC is being able to flip it, drop it on the table, toss it from hand to hand, etc -- having another Gaff shimmed would allow the combo unit to be handled in similar manner. It's an advantage for ease of handling rather than a requirement. I am perfectly happy using a standard EXP or "slippery" in many effects. If I had the shimmed ones I would add more twirls and flips to my presentations.

However, most effects documented so far use only the TUC and normal coins. Additional Gaffs should not be considered a factor in getting your first TUC.

OK - I think I misunderstood your previous post; I thought that you already sold this. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Thanks!

I'm calling it the "ShimSlip" in the Book unless someone comes up with something better. I already have a couple of new Effects using this Gaff and haven't even seen one.

In another topic there is a discussion of some new TUC's being made with round rather than square gaffs. I am amazed with the fast pace of innovation with the TUC. I suggest that anyone considering custom orders discuss the merits of this option with Mr. Tango. I like the Slippery sam option. I have already discussed ordering a sh**med E-] made to fit a custom TUC. The possibilities with that combination are endless.

Please notice the offer of a free TUC effect as a Sneak Preview at
http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......um=202&0

the "Coins Across" selection can use the new ShimSlip, SSES or whatever you call it -- or an old trusty Expanded Shell --

a completely different 3Fly type effect in which the hands never touch and each transport (6) appears different to the audience.

the "Copper-Silver" uses a signed Copper coin and the multiple Changes happen in the spectator's hand.

the "Quarter" is an incredible impromptu Transportation using change from your pocket.

the "Production/Vanish" is a lead in to other effects in which three coins are produced one at a time in spectacular fashion.

enjoy!

It seems that the Effect offered for "Quarter" can work with the Euro TUC also.

I was receiving some pm asking about the teflon circles for TUC and Slippery shell coins.
I want to say that we sell them and you can get them in your favorite magic store.
One very good tip for TUC is this one: if your teflon circle is damaged for the friction between the magnet and the metal, don't take out the teflon, put a new one over the oldest. 99 per cent of the times the coin works better with 2 teflon circles one over other.

Mr. Tango, funsway, or anyone, where can I get an expanded shimmed shell/shimslip?

You're better off waiting for the magnetic version Mr. Tango said he will begin making soon. For now you will do much better with a good exp. sh**l instead.

When Mr. Tango first mentioned that he had the slippery sh**ls I went and bought one of Tango's regular non-magnetic ones. Mistake. It is not very good - the heads side is way too flat, similar to Tango's regular exp. sh**l; not enough relief on Kennedy's head/face. Plus I hope they make the new magnetic ones a good bit deeper because the non-magnetic one that I purchased is too shallow and you can see the edge of the TUC much too easily.

We use new half dollar coins to make our coins, and the new coins has less relief comparing with the old coins.

I have the dollar size T.U.C and noticed that if it is not used for a while the insert is hard to slide off the shell but after a warm up of sliding the insert in and out a few times, it becomes much easier to do it. I also stuck a piece of tape on top of the magnet as suggested in one of the post.

Seems that the the magnet loses some strength while in use and then regains full force when it's idling.

Hi,
I need help!

I have the 2 € coin, and I am not happy!

My coin has small dents on the side.
The coin is very loud at the slightest movement.
Also I can not put the coin from one hand to the other.
I would have to deal with the coin as a raw egg.
Always there is the noise!

Does anyone have an idea?

all the best

Hello, little great news!
Tango has replaced my coins!
The new coin has even a german back.
Great! I call that great customer service!!
Very big thanks to tango magic!
And everything was quite simple, a photo and a mail was enough.
Many thanks!

The new coin is really fantastic.
Well made and accurate.
I have played for hours with the coin.

Highly recommended.

10/10

Dear Friends,

I want to remember you that I will be lecturing in Sand Diego July 11st, the day after IBM congress finish. I will be in Knoxville too July 15th. I will be 3 days in Knoxville at Funsway house, so if somebody wants to meet me I will be there playing with my T.U.Cs

See you there.

PD: I will take a good number of silver TUC in Morgan and Walking Liberty versions to sell in my lectures.

If you or anyone you know is going to be in San Diego July 11th, be sure to attend Mr. Tango's 2 hour long TUC Lecture. It will be held at the same hotel as the convention (the IBM convention finishes the day before Mr. Tango's lecture).

This will be an INCREDIBLE opportunity to learn how to use the Tango Ultimate Coin. Mr. Tango will present the lecture and teach basic technique as well as these effects:

3 Fly

One Coin Routine

Coins through table

Matrix (with reverse)

Chink a Chink

Coin Through Borrowed Bill

Signed Coin to Can

Signed Coin to Pepper

Coins Across

Coins To Glass

Coins to Spectator's Hand

Always 3

Coin Production(s)

Copper and Silver Routines

What a great opportunity to learn from the creator of the Tango Ultimate Coin!

See you there!
