Hi Everyone,

I'm working on a novel switched billet peek that works really well for me.

I loved the work in Switch Craft (Elliott J. Bresler) but I just felt that I needed a really good peek to round things off.

The criteria I'm using are as follows (Inspired by EJ Bresler):

- Needs to by easy to execute
- Look natural
- Can be done standing up
- Can be done in close up situation
- Entire contents of card can be viewed

I think my peek is new, I have'nt seen it around, I read alot, but then again, there is a lot of material out there.

I don't really want to give this one away without getting credit for it so I would really appreaciate it if anyone could give me some tips on further developing my peek and how to check if it is truely a new method or if I have just developed an old one independently.

Thanks,

Sea.
I love post its Smile

Contact Bob Cassidy! While I certainly cannot speak for his availability, he would be the best to answer your question on originality. He is the foremost authority regarding billets here.

Regards,

Sean

Seems most sensible to send it to Elliott or Bob (no offense John)...

I only asked for the benefit of the joke! No offense taken my friend.

... I live by this:

Whoever is offended when no offense was intended is a fool, and whoever is offended when offense was intended is usually a fool.

Hi Sea,

Lately, I’ve been very busy with being newly married and furnishing a new apartment – but I’d be delighted to take a look at it (especially if you can allow me some time to get to it.) I am familiar with a lot of billet reads.

If you would be interested in contributing it to Switchcraft, then the time is right, as I committed to starting a new supplement in September.

Thank you,

Elliott

PS. Thank you for your kind words about Switchcraft
