On the The Great Wand & Block Mystery the picture looks like it all wood just not the front part.
Do the sides come off of this or are they attached to the base.

This is completely different than the crappy one I have been looking at on youtube!
It is horrible!

It's flat and doesn't weigh a lot ... won't be that much I think, unless the seller insists on having complete and accurate tracking.

Is the picture correct to what it does look like when you get it maybe the sides are not wood either now?

Shipping was very reasonable... total with shipping to Canada was $72 (Canadian) and I received it in 4 business days. Clearly Richard does not like the plastic version <g> but I am very happy with mine... the blocks are wood if that helps <g>.

Coin and BOLT (why do you keep saying 'Block' JM Smile ) is wood, just got mine a week or two ago. I also have a very early version of this trick, by Magiro too, and that one is some kind of hard plastic but the nice thing is the plastic in the middle is semi-transparant so you can show the coin going through the bolt - I'll post some pictures in the near future.

Mr Wizard, the Block and Wand is plastic, but it is not crappy in my opinion. And you can always make a 'frame' yourself out of wood if necessary, or paint or cover the one that is provided to look more authentic Smile

Ok it just looks so flimsy in the youtube video I have been looking at maybe there is a better one you can show me.
That surely can't be the only one on there I hope.
Link to one that looks good being done please.

And this should be the upgrade post right here.

Ta Dah.... nothing in my head.... presto! Smile

Yup that's the same one I have been seeing alright!
I've seen all his videos and they are not too bad.
But is it just me or should he remake this one again before he starts drinking? HAHAHAHA

If the cover attached to the base somehow it would be light years better.
Maybe if the sides were attached and the front was able to slide on and off that would keep it from rocking and rolling no matter how much anyone had to drink. LOL

The Block and Wand was also being sold by Elmwood magic under the name “Pentro Blocks. It was made of wood but was lesser quality than the plastic one. No credit was given to Magiro and it is no longer available from them (most likely due to copyright issue...I would guess. See the attached jpeg). The holes and slits on the side panels were pretty much dead center on this one.

Here are two other nice Magiro effects that I was lucky enough to find;
Hydro Die & De-Materializer. Actually, they’re both the same effect oly one is large and the other small. They can both be seen here.
