I am looking for some type of box that I can load a bill folder into 8th's. I am considering Mikame's Close-Up Nest of Boxes, but it doesn't need to be a nest. After a switch, I want to load it for a later reveal. Any ideas would be great. Remember, close-up please, not some big huge set-up.

If anyone has the Mikame Boxes, please tell me how they play. I know how they work, and I am interested in what owners think.

Doesn't have to be a box either, I am missing one link to an effect, and any help would be great.

Thanks

Uh, sometimes it takes longer than 5 minutes for someone to respond.

I don't have the Mikame boxes, but a few other load devices come to mind. Perhaps you could use a Lippincott box, bill tube, lemon, ball of string or yarn. A little more clarification on what you are trying to accomplish may get you more and better suggestions.

I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

Richard Sanders has a routine that loads the bill into a marking pen cap. I watched it at ones of his lectures and it is very simple and direct.

If you look closer, that was 12 hours, but that is OK.

I'd go for the Viking Lippencott box ("Quarter Go Plus") since it's great quality, a strong effect, quiet and reasonably examinable. I have one; it plays really well. For coin stuff you can even load a nest of coin boxes inside the Quarter Go box.
Or if you're just using it for bills, one of the Viking bill tubes would be a good idea. Don't go for knockoffs; I've had several and they were worse than useless. They're just not examinable in the same way as the Viking stuff, which for this kind of item is important.

I will check out the Lippencott Boxes, thanks. I had forgot about them.
