Friends, I wanted to have the new DVD ready for April, but two months ago I crashed my medium right finger nail when I was rowing in the river, (I go every day to row) and I was waiting that the nail went back to his natural color.
After 2 months waiting I think that it can take so much time to come back to his natura colour, just my nail is not in his best stetic situation for a video. But I can't wait more, because I receive e-mails every day asking for the "coin across" routine that everybody saw at Wizard Product Review, so I have to take a desicion: to put as title of the DVDs "Black Nail Series" or to paint my nails to shoot the video. I think that I will do the second one.

The idea is to introduce a series of DVDs, called TUC Miracles, at least 4 volumes:
1- Coin Acroos routines
2- Matrix routines
3- Coin penetrations
4- 3 fly routine

So, I will start with the "Coin across" volume next week.

I just received a soft Walking Liberty TUC that "Mr. Tango" sent to me from Argentina. It is beautiful and works flawlessly. I do not know if he has these in stock on a regular basis or makes them up ocassionaly but you should certainly contact "Mr. Tango" if you want one. Highly recommended.

I also received a special expanded Kennedy half dollar shell (heads) that he made up for me specially to fit over his Gravity Pro English Penny/Half Dollar flipper. I had to wait two weeks for it to come from Argentina but it was well worth it. It fits perfectly with no distortion. Mr. Tango provided great customer service and delivered a great product. Highly recommended.

I think it is not "one of the best", I think it is "the best". My coins across now seems like real magic. Even my wife thought it was amazing and after all these years, she is hard to fool. The ability to do a coins across with seemingly no moves and it looks so clean because the gaff is indectible in normal use, I am at a loss for words. I even fool myself with the TUC. It is the best.

Mr Tango, my hats off to you!

Hi Mr Tango.Do you personally make all of your coins? Or due to the quantity needed is there a team of people who make them for you?

Is the TUC available as a 10p piece (UK). And if so who sells it?

just an idea... if you want, you can upload just your coins across video to a website that requires people to enter a password in order to view the video. that way, you can get some feedback from the magic community and it will tide people over until the full dvd is released. and you can remove the video after a week or two.

Another idea I had was to do some routines with the TUC and an expanded shell. the metal 3 dvd by eric jones has some great effects that use a flipper and a shell that can also be done with a TUC and shell.

and will there be an okito box routine?

Yes, I forget a volume with TUC and other accessories, as Slippery shell, Expanded shell, Okito box, act.
Actually I perform a routine with a okito box. Good Idea

Tango Magic distributes a heck of a lot of gaffed coins world wide. I highly doubt that any one person is making all of their TUCs. My guess is that he either has a manufacturing plant where all his gaffs are made, and/or outsources some of the work to other facilities. I don’t see how one person could make all of the TUCs he offers. If Mr. Tango is indeed making all of them himself, it must be in between saving the world and visits to his Fortress of Solitude. Smile lol!

Hi Jim. Daft question to ask ! I wasn't sure of the volumes they made. I know some other coins are made by individuals who have a good reputation. I wasn't sure if Tango coins fell into this category. It might explain why commented to me that the coins are sometimes of variable quality.

Just to clarify in my last post I wasn't saying that TUCs are of variable quality.

Jmac is correct here, without me even checking with Mr. Tango...No way he can provide every coin ordered. Clearly he has a machine in place producing all this. Just common sense.

As to variable quality, well that can happen when many hands help make the soup. It also would explain why you get your orders relatively quicker than with other craftsman. A lot of those other guys are actually producing this stuff themselves, which can slow things down tremendously. In doing all the work themselves (sorta like a Todd Lassen seems to do) it obviously takes longer to produce which would also drive up prices. Think about it, Mr. Tango offers his gaffs at lower prices and you get them faster, but quality at times can be an issue because it's not just him making these things, he certainly doesn't make most of them. He wouldn't be able to keep up with the demand which would hurt sales and clearly his sales ain't hurtin' Smile So you see, it's all relative. What I wonder sometimes is what these craftsman think of one another. Well we know what Lassen thinks of Schoolcraft but wonder what they both think of Tango's TUC. Is it one of those, "Wish I had thought of that" or perhaps they don't think it's what all you think of it as to quality and workability. Hey, there's also Johnson Coins, which used to be middle of the road good quality stuff, still is IMHO. But they don't make all this new wave specialty stuff. Sure is an interesting business alright. Good luck to all. Smile

Unless things have changed, just daughters not involved in the business, but a wife who watches things while he is away. Yes, he has a manufacturing facility as well as his Magic School/Nightclub -- is very picky about his employees and quality issues. He manufacture a lot of Chinese type coins as well as the gaffed ones. His "small, hands-on" approach to customer service is a matter of attitude and love for the art more than "size."

When he stayed with me for four days in Knoxville, TN we spend more time shopping for gifts for his familiy than discussing magic -- and he felt it important to spend time at our table with my aged parents. You can never underestimate his passion for living that seeps into his business; making magic simple, making it affordable and making it fun.
