My favorite magic reviewer, Wayne Kawamoto, did a review:

I watched the Penguin demo and it did look good:

Zombie must have gotten that message from Penguin since this has been revived after a year and a day. Yeah, Zombie, I'm pondering it myself. Seems like it's going to be a lot of trouble to set up and use, though. I'll have to read through all seven pages tonight before I make my decision. The price is right, though.

Bats, when I bring our puppy meds home, they give me this little ice pack to keep it cool. Stays frozen the whole trip home ( doesn't get wet for some reason- dry ice?) It's small and in a jacket pocket, that could be used ( I think ).

Thanks, Zombie- I'm sure you're right. The thing is, I already carry way more stuff than a normal guy does. Of course, guys and gals like us are NOT normal. I'm always stuffing things into my wife and daughter's purses. Neither one will carry my Industrial Revelation for me anymore! Can I borrow somebody else's wife or daughter, please?

Bats, this is an open forum, please don't tip secrets like our stuffing things into our wives and daughters purses!

Hey, BatsMagic - I'm thinking about this too. Quite a variety of opinions in this thread. There seems to be an issue with the original instructions - pretty poor. There have been some improvements on them, both paper and DVD. Wonder what Penguin includes. Important because proper prep seems to be key. Also at this price there's the issue of shipping @ 1/2 the price of the effect. What to do? Buy 2? Add something else to the cart (you really don't need)? Interested in hearing your thoughts after you read through the thread - Steve

So, yeah, drsteve and Zombie, my order is in. I'm actually involved right now in a garage construction project (part of my roof kinda gave way) with my brother, who is a professional carpenter, so this would be a good one to try out on him. We might finish this weekend, though, so I might be just a few days too late. Could be a bit tricky, though- like I said, he's a professional carpenter, so if the nails don't match (and they probably won't!), he might not fall for it. I'll have to see!

Ordered "Slide" from Penguin also!

I got mine from penguin today. You get the two nails the straighting tube an ice pack and a thermal pouch to keep the nails in. No dvd only two pages of instructions. I can not get mine to work right. I have read on the penguin forum that some sets work and some don't. It sounds like this effect has a quality control issues.

Received 2 sets from Penguin yesterday. So far have only played around with 1 set. Used the f*****r for prep on both nails, bending/unbending a little at a time. Both worked just fine. For what it's worth my wife was more impressed with the bending of the straight nail (but then also asked to see it straightened again) so I see how you can work both together. When I get the opportunity to test out the second set, I'll report back. Also want to see realistically how long the prepared nails can be kept in the pouch, especially since I live in Florida.

Sounds good, Steve. I should get mine tomorrow. I'll contact you after I play around with it a bit. I'm also expecting "Slide" tomorrow, so I have enough to play around with!

Mine did not work either! I was disappointed. I am glad to know that some worked better.

But like said above the F-----R works better than the cup. The cup would not alow mine to work the F-----r did! That was my problem! Now they work just fine!

I just got this recently and have been struggling with the instructions. If there ever was a trick needing a DVD to instruct this is the one. I'm not sure if I have the new and improved structions or not, I received 2 pages 1 of them front and back for a total of 3 pages of instructions.

Those are the "improved" instructions. Basically, put both nails in the f****r and every few minutes bend the straight one a little by hand and straighten the bent one a little w/ the tube, put them back and repeat until they look like you want them to. Worked for me.

Mine bends immediately when I pull it out of the f*****r or a glass of i** w****. And no, I don't live in a tropical paradise with super hot weather. Any ideas?
