Can anyone who owns a Johnson Jardine Ellis Ring tell me what metal the ring and gimmick are?

Actually more directly - can both adhere to a magnet?

Hello Dan, I just bought an old Johnson Ellis ring. The metal is tarnished ,so I believe it is brass.

I put the gimmick and ring on my rare earth magnets, neither adhered to the magnet. oblique

Dan, I have one made if steel and the ring works with the magnet, but the s#*$l doesn't!

Sorry but I bought it at an auction so I don't know where it was bought!

Johnson-Brass
Viking-Brass
India_Chromed-Brass
Japanese-Brass
Flat ring_chromed-Brass
Japenese washers-Brass

Own em all.

Chazpro has some realy thin shim steel
that will work in the PK Section.

I think they are all Brass so the softer metal doesn't talk as much.

Dan, after looking closer, the s#$%l is most likely aluminum and the ring is steel. I asked around and no one knows where it came from.

I can vouch for Pete's recommendation. They are not as well-made as the Johnson, but they are cheap, they're made well enough to get past the specs, and the booklet is worth the price of the whole shebang!

In addition to the Jinking Rings manuscript from Magic Inc., I would also suggest you look at R. Paul Wilson's "One True Ring" routine. I saw Paul perform it (live) and it is a killer.

You can find it on his website: http://www.rpaulwilson.com

Why not simply shim the gimmick?

Doomo-
That is of course a consideration, but how? I don't have access to a machine shop and the gimmick must fit closely. Most gimmicks are quite thin in order to be more deceptive. It would seem Pete's suggestion is the best for a quick fix.

I also second checking out Paul Wilson's One True Ring routine. Even if you don't perform it, it is beautiful to watch.

Isn't it cool how chestnuts like ring on wand can inspire new handlings? Beautiful work, Paul!

Cordially,
tr

Pete,

The Magic Inc. site only lists the Jinking Ring Book at $5. The rings are not available, at least according to the web site.

I just got Paul Wilson's "One True Ring" manuscript and could not find my Jardine ellis ring.

This effect is so good I had to order another!
