I own this and I have one question about the bent nail. When I straighten mine, it still looks a little funny where the bend occurs. I don't think it would be noticed during performance, but I just wanted to make sure this is normal. The only way I can describe it is to say it looks slightly "wavy" at the joint. Once again, to onlookers it will look straight, but I can notice the discrepancy.

If anyone knows where to get similar looking nails let me know. I would like give the nail away at the end, but I haven't had any luck finding this style of nail at Home Depot or Lowes.

Look for garden fence/shed nails, if need be, bring one if your one's to the store to compare...

We had best results with the cru***d I*e and w***r mix and we also set the gimmicks one at a time to avoid confusion.
Also do you have the latest multi page instructions written by Tim Trono?

Jim

I prefer using the s***y. It works much quicker, no need to let it sit for a couple minutes like with the w***r. Plus with the s***y you know that the temperature will be cold enough so you won't have to worry about damaging the gimmick during preparation. I can see how i*e water would be more practical if you're using this in a walkaround set.

Try a mix of Cru***d I*e + W***r + Sea Salt. Smile

P.S. Sea Salt acts as a catalyst. Smile

Thought this looked good then read all the negative reviews - the W.P.R gave it high marks !
Jim are you basically saying that its the companion DVD that makes all the difference to correct set up?

Any owners who purchased this with the DVD care to comment ??

Hi NFW .
The companion dvd that comes with the perfect nail bend sent when you purchase it from World Magic Shop gives you tips on how to set it up and how to reset it . It a great free dvd in my opinion .
Hope this helps Matthew

Thanks Matthew, so was it the lack of this DVD and poor instructions the cause of the negative reviews earlier?

Really its not that hard. The big thing is some people are setting it up badly. The bent nail you get you will need to fr**e it 1st then use the tool to make it st***t slowly. Then as it wa*ms up it will st***ten back out. With the St***t nail same thing put it in the Fr***r 1st then bend it slowly. I did this on Thursday and thay worked perfectly. MIne only took like 3 min to do its job. Let me just say ( Cool ) ( Very cool ) Glad I bought.

Hi nfw

The main problem with the perfect nail bend in the first place was the instructions was not clearly laid out . So world magic shop made a compainion DVD . And also their is a new set of paper based instructions out for it now .
