At long last, I undertook the project of upgrading two of my TUC gaffs from square to round. I posted my experience in Secret Sessions.

If I knew it would be this easy, I wouldn't have waited so long!

Thanks, Trooper11040, for getting me going.

Regards,

Alan

Sorry friends if you don't find TUC in stock in the magic dealers, just we was closed for summer holidays in february and I was lecturing february and a part of March around Scandinavia and UK but now we are working hard to send as soon as possible a good quantity to Murphys in about 15 or 20 days. Anyway if some you need a TUC urgent you can buy it directly from us in our web site or just send an e-mail to info@tangomagic.com

Glad to hear it Mr Tango. I absolutely love my Kennedy set. I do a killer 3fly routine with that combination and I want to upgrade to a larger coin so it is more visible.

Is there anyway to "tighten" the shell so the edges of the shell are closer to the insert? I know there is a way to loosen it as per the instructions, but never the other way around...

Ok...

I've gone through this thread twice... looked through the Secret Sessions thread... and unless I'm missing something, I cannot find any specific information on what size (diameter) and what thickness of round magnet one would use to replace the sq. one in a T.U.C half. I purchased a used one here at the Café, with a sq. magnet (I didn't know there was any debate about the internal workings of the coin before I purchased it) and I have no problem with a DIY project, but I need to know what some of you here have already discovered.

Please PM me if you have those details.

Just measured mine. the diameter is about 16mm or 5/8 of an inch. Can't tell the thickness.

Thickness is the really important dimension. It's evident from messages on this thread that "someone" has done this. I'm hoping that they keep some specs on what they did.

Hi Al,

I'm that "someone". I am waiting for a more precise digital caliper to arrive (the previous one I purchased was accurate only to 1mm and is therefore useless for these purposes). As soon as it comes I will post the results in SS.

I posted in SS on this. Hope that helps.

We have excellent coin gaffers in America and Canada (including one who used to live in England - Bob Swadling), but Mr Tango invented a revolutionary new concept in the TUC. I choose to support the inventors and innovators no matter their location or the language they speak.

I forgot to mention here that I posted dimensions in secret sessions last month after the calipers came (do a search if you are interested).

The morgen TUC is the best handling one of the TUC coins.

I was in Argentina 2 weeks ago and stopped by the Bar Magico, Mr Tango's place. I was not able to attend any of the shows, but I spend one hour with Marcelo when I dropped my TUCs so he can change the magnets to the round ones, my TUCs are 2009 vintage one of the firsts to be produced. For me the round magnets work better, in the hands of Marcelo, even with the square ones he open them easily. Creator's hands!
He also did some magic for me with his new Tango ultimate reel, incredible silent and cool prop. But I finally bought a a C/S/B coin set that uses instead of the chinese coin with a hole a current 10 pesos Mexican coin, very nice set.

It is always a pleasure to see Mr Tango, so if you are in Buenos Aires stop by his place, great people.

Please remember that the T.U.C. evolved over many years from a passion to "make magic simple" rather than any desire to make something new or unique.

They are not "creator's hand" as much as "father's hands"
