Hi Kirk... thanks for sharing those great Magiro finds... they are definitely cool looking effects. I know that Hank Lee carried some Magiro items other than that I think these effects saw very limited release in N.A. In the past Howie Schwatzman was probablly the main source.

Here are my pictures of the old Magiro Coin And Bolt and Wand And Block.

Coin And Bolt Mystery - the special thing is it is made out of hard plastic and is nicely decorated. The 'shell' where the coin goes in is semi-transparant brown. You can not see it in the picture but if a coin is placed in and moves through the bolt it is visible untill it gets in the square where the bolt is.

Wand And Block Mystery- the exact same as Felix's version, apart from:
- the magic wand which is black with golden ends and
- the blocks have a purple color where the stick goes in/around the holes.

...plus the corners of your cubes are 'sharper' (not rounded).
Thanks for the pictures!

Yes, and I forgot to tell the blocks are made from wood like I mentioned before.

Well, your pics show pretty well that the cubes are wooden and their colour fits perfectly the tone of the base, right?

They are actually a litle bit another color. Perhaps the stand was polished/treated with colored varnish so the wood looks darker, or the wood used is different, I don't know. Anyway, like said before, both the old wooden or the more recent plastic version are great effects anyone who loves these kind of miracles should have in his or her repertoire.

Great pictures... the semi transparent feature is a nice touch on the Coin and Bolt (said it right this time!). I will give you $40 for both props (you pay shipping) this deal will expire at midnight... let me know <g>.

I am considering maybe purchasing Coin and Bolt but I hesitate because the method seems obvious to me (though it does look like a quality made piece). Just like with my Tenyo collection, I only invest in the pieces I find intriguing. Of the Magiro pieces that I own, the methods have been quite ingenious. So, for those of you out there that own Coin and Bolt, please tell me that I would be pleasantly surprised by the method so that I can feel good about digging into my pocket and spend my hard earned cash.

Hey Killertweety,

I had the opportunity a few years back to purchase a Coin and Bolt just like the one shown in your picture. It’s a beautiful looking piece….I should have purchased it when I had the chance.
Does anyone out there have any idea how many of each effect Magiro produces? Since they are so hard to come by, I would guess not many.

Surprise.......Now there is a plastic item to my liking Smile
Looks great and the transparent area is really good idea.
Like to have both Coin and Bolt in plastic and the wood one.
It's An Illusion Unless I Can't Fix It Then It's A Reality.

Here are a few other non Tenyo Items that I think are worth mentioning.

Mark Leveridge’s - WAND-ER-FULL. This is a beautiful close up effect involving various colored cigarette sized magic wands and a brass tube/wand holder. The wands change places between the tube and your shirt pocket and other magical effects. Unfortunately, it is no longer available. Why is it all the good stuff “Vanishes?” :-(

From Tricks Company of Japan is a very rare item called “The Magic Pierrot.” (See attached images)
There are two effects possible:
1. A white clown is inserted into a frame and becomes a colorful clown (not using the method you may think).
2. A Colorful clown is inserted into the frame and is then fixed with two clamps. The clown is then magically freed from the clamps and pulled from the frame.

Here are three great Magiro's effects. These are near impossible to find so I’m very thankful to have acquired them.

2. “The Cube Prison” is also a great Tenyo like effect. A 3 sided folding panel with a window at the bottom covers a plexiglass tube that sits on a wooden base (see attached picture). The tube has two metal screws crossed at the top and are permanently locked in place. A spectator selects one of two cubes. This cube is dropped behind the panel and now can be seen through the window. The panel is lifted and the spectators can see that the cube rests inside the tube having magically penetrated the fixed metal screws.
...

...anybody has been able to put his hands on one of these?

Thanks for the suggestion. Is there any info on this trick available? I can't find anything.

And I have the same question as Magic Patagonia Smile

Here is another Magiro effect worth mentioning (and also near impossible to find):
Bank Note Miracle – This is a penetration effect using a barrowed dollar bill. You have two tubes, two shot glasses that fit inside the tubes and a square plastic plate. A glass is placed inside one of the tubes and the plate is placed in top of it. The 2nd glass is now placed on top of the plate. A barrowed dollar bill (whose serial number has been recorded) is folded, wrapped in tissue paper and a rubber band and paperclipped together. This packet is placed inside the top glass and the 2nd tube place over it. Abracadabra! Remove the top tube and the bill has disappeared from the glass. Remove the plate and the lower tube. The bottom glass now has the tissue paper wrapped around its mouth and held in place with a rubber band. The barrowed bill is inside the glass. A very cleaver method indeed!

Somewhat similar to the trick above, Ickle Pickle put this trick out years ago, and it kills:

Yes Wizard that is a great effect, used to perform that quite often. Works great for kids and adults. Need to dig it out again.

My pleasure Killertweety. I would go with the Ickle Pickle model. It's well-made, and fairly priced...although I no longer see it on their website. I wonder if they discontinued it?

On the first page of this thread Kwarren mentions;

“The Cube Prison”
“PATERNOSTER” (This was the German name)

Anyone know where I can find these. Tried Google without luck.

Thanks

PS- Any new thoughts on alternative ideas???
