Although it wasn't made available too long in the late 40's and early '50s, did anyone out there own this outfit?
I'm trying to acquire the original instructions for same.
Thanks

No, not yet. Think they'd have some available?

I have no idea, but that's where I'd start looking.

I have seen a couple over the years. Using orange juice (an acid) in a chrome plated prop is not going to help its life any.

I agree with Michael. Start with Abbotts.

Abbotts has a new program going called "Retro Abbotts" and its all about making discontinued magic props and they supply the instructions for the props so its possible someone at Abbotts may be able to help. Drop them an email greg@abbottmagic.com

Retro Abbotts is a project where products that have not been produced in years (sometimes decades) are being re-introduced. Several have been made already including Sonic Cleaning Chamber, Neonistic Silk fountain, Asrah in Miniature, and Sacrificial Cremation.

Others that they are looking into are Bathing Beauty and Coke of Plenty (coke of plenty was stopped because they no longer could get the old fashion coke bottles, now they are plentiful again).

If you have something in mind let us know, its a fun project.

Got the instructions, finally. The premise for the effect is basically a "Juice-a-matic" Jake Lalane pitch, using lemons and oranges.
It fit in to the early 1950s love of new kitchen gadgets that was making housewives work easier.
