I'm hoping one or more of our wizards out there can enlighten me as to who first came up with applying the slot to the Okito box. Seems that I remember reading a short bit about it in one of the "Modern Magic" books, but upon review, have been unable to locate what I think I may have read.

Thank you for your help and replies....Michael

Surely someone has a bit of knowledge on this topic. This has bugged me for a long time. Thanks for any help with this.

Thanks Bill and Johnathan! Here are a couple of links to photos for you. The first one is on topic. The other two are just for fun. The box on the right front contains the slot. The photo shows a bit of a bend in the highlight near the bottom inside.

Someone suggested that I contact you guys, but, hadn't gotten to it yet. I'll keep diggin'.

I do appreciate the replies!....Michael

Those are nice looking boxes. Who are they made by?

Does anyone have information about Keno Magic Company in Hays Pennsylvania. Owner was Julius Andre. Their invoice says they build Large Illustions and Magic Equipment, tools and model making, engine repairing (steam and gas), automobile, motorcycles, motor boats from 0 to 10,000 H.P. Wondering what year(s) they may have been in business.
