Alas my Dollar Tree does not carry the rings.

Posted: Nov 2, 2011 2:50pm
But my wife just found a set at another store. Will be fun to play with, tho they are small.

I agree with you on the BOR thing Mary. When I buy the magic kits from Kipp Bros. I remove Professor's Nightmare.

Those are some ugly welds. Look like the Royal Rings too. I agree with Jack and Mary on the BOR thing. I would never do that.

Mike Rogers published in his book, that when a set of rings has an obvious weld, that you should place a fake weld on your key ring. I agree with this theory as when I once showed a 3 ring routine to a person, all he was doing is burning the rings. The 1st thing he asked was. lets see that ring.

Mike Rogers suggest taking the metal weld glue to place a matching fake glue weld on the key ring.

Don't know if this is similar to the Marlo idea, but it is one solution to visible welds. I would expect if Marlo's idea was actually usable and easily made, everyone would be using it. This is the 1st I have heard of this idea.

The only thing is this does not allow some of the fake moves to display the key ring in the hands.

I don't know where the Marlo ring routine is published that uses rings with visible welds. The routine presented in "Arcade Dreams" is a three ring routine using a oversize ring, single, and key. There is no discussion or mention of welds.

You're right Frank. I have a set of the Royal Rings that came with Dan Fleshman's VHS I purchased a few years ago.

You don't need to make a glue weld. Just take a ring, non key, and opposite the weld make a key out of it. Then it will match perfectly.

Harry, did you read my post above? I even gave the page reference for the Marlo effect, Poor Man's Locked Key Routine. Please revisit Arcade Dreams and all will be revealed.

Are you referencing The Complete Mike Rogers?

If so, please revisit this volume where you will find Marlo's Poor Man's Locked Key, pp.87-89. From the introduction:


"Back in August 1967 I published Ed Marlo's 'Poor Man's Locked Key' in my Table Time column in the MUM magazine. In the following month of September, 1967 I published one of Ed's routine[s] using the concept. Many close up workers played with the idea, and through the years it has gained respect in all parts of the country. Marketed versions using the concept have appeared, some selling for extremely high prices. Numerous routines are possible, and the creative close up man can establish quite a reputation for himself if he will give some thought to these methods."

See also The Marlo Rings Arrangement, pp. 89-94 in the same volume.

Brian, I stand corrected. I didn't read the page numbers and only looked at three-ring routine in the book. No excuse. It teachd me to not try to read and post when I get home after the bar gig closes. Still, no excuse. My bad.

Yes, I was referencing the only book Mike Rogers ever published, The Complete Mike Rogers.

Gee, 1967 I was just back from Viet Nam, and started my 1st magazine subscription with Genii. I was only 22 years old, then. I don't think I even knew about The American Society of Magicians yet, and the MUM magazine. It was not until many years later, that I joined and by then they were not publishing that super good magic like the early days. Meaning from the popular names in magic at the time.
