I got the pokerchip stickers, red and blue and custom order one set in yellow to replace the stickers of the DFST set. This way it will match the colour of the "Hiro Sakai's Tricolor Fly.

I am wondering if the larger size (3 inch) might work as decoration for some old props I have.

Thanks Joseph.

Those dragons stickers are reminiscent of Mortal Kombat.
That's something I wouldn't want specs thinking about.

I finished the re-design of the original DFST chinese coin sticker to a choise of black,red, blue and green background design. The Chinese coin sticker shows solid with not "hole".

I will send a free link to my Dropbox to the people who have contribute so far to this thread and owns a DFST. If you are interested, PM with your email address.

I also got my sticker from Zazzle today,the quality for chinese coin sticker is good. But I'm not satisfied with others (especially Morgan sticker).
The sticker material is glossy , but one of my coin sticker (American Eagle Silver Dollar) are non-glossy material(paper material sticker).
I'm waiting for Zazzle's explanation.
Here is my sticker review on my Blog (http://attken.pixnet.net/blog/post/97720147)

Well I'm taking the plunge on the el cheapo version from page 1. I appologize for the jumpy nature of the post, but its mostly transcribed from my design notebook.

I order ten 1 1/2'' x 1/16'' magnets, 20 morgan heads, 20 morgan tails, and 20 chinese coins stickers. I also picked up a bunch of washers from the hardware store

Going to experiment with:

Design A: Morgan Face(washer)Chinese Morgan Face(magnet)Chinese Chinese(washer)Morgan Tails

All washers are ferrous.
Thickness a possbile issue, but mitigated by using thin washers. Thin coins not a problem if handled properly i.e. held facing out at chest level

Concerns; washers won't be lined up on magnet automatically. Maybe for productions only?

Design B: same layout as design A but with non ferrous washers


If non-magnetic metal is used, I could possible trap a weaker and smaller magnet in the hole of the washer with the stickers. This could line up automatically, testing needed. Thiness of washers dictaed by size of small magnets I can find, but intial testing done with 1/8 magnets leftover from other projects. The 1.5 magnet could be totally substituted for a third washer, but the stickers may have to be reinforcred some how such that the force of the magnets does not cause bulge marks or possbbly ripping through the sticker. Must test sticker strength when they arrive.

Design C: magnet magnet magnet

Thickness a major concern
Magnets to Magnet connection. Testing stickers both sides and only one side. Want to test if the force of the magnets poses a problem in sperating them by sliding. Also testing automatic alighment properties.

Design D: magnet magnet washer
Attempt to mitigate thickness problem of C. Washer may be thin and magnet equiped if initial testing from B proves sucessful.

So that's what I have in mind. Things should be arriving in the mail in the next 5-7 business days.

The stuff came in the mail today, and I got right to work playing with all the coins. It turns out the right answer was not any of my four designs.

First off, the magnets are moderatly difficult to seperate in magnet to magnet contact. It is doable, but not easy. If you stack three magnets, it is functionally impossible to slide them apart.

The washers did not stick to the magnets as well as I thought they would. I chalk that up to low iron content in the metal. They do however natrually want to nest flush with the magnets. This suprised me.

I was playing with the magnet magnet washer design, and I set it up the wrong way accidently because it is hard to tell which coin is which when they have stickers on them. I put them in magnet washer magnet order. This turned out to fix all the problems. The washer acts as a barrier between the two magnets allowing them to slide apart easily.

Looks really good. You should put up a few links to where you got the magnets and washers from.

I used the link for the magnets proved by jprace on page one

http://www.amazon.com/Disc-Package-Earth......00W8O7P4

The washers are from my local Home Depot, but any hardware store will have them. Size 1.5" by 1/16"

Thanks Zachary, that's cool.
I commend you for experimenting and seeing what you can come up with, and then sharing your findings with us and posting a video.
We all owe you one!
Thanks again,
Bill

Ok I received my DFSTC in the mail and what I can say is that the coins now really slides smoothly whith the stickers and the coin now looks thinner than the super triple coin which is a plus point.so what I think is Johnny wong has come up with a solution to the problems that we all were facing.

Can anyone please repost the videos as to how to replace the stickers, do you peel the old ones off first or do they just go over the top?

I have used them and I think the stickers are pretty cool. However, if you keep nest the split coins together for some time, they will be difficult to seperate. When not in use for a period of time, its best to put a divider between them.

If you are interested in my take, you can get them here.

The poker chips are made from the chips that I have and the coins are made from Chinese Shell set that I'm sure many of you already have. One of the Chinese coin sticker is made from Ton Onosaka's Chinese shell set, so the sticker side will match the coin. The other one is made from Jieli's Chinese coin shell set.

BTW, if you put 2 different stickers on a Split Coin, you can do a Triple Spellbound like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAtCwYQsnr0

Hey Bernard,
Can you or anyone else say where I could get a dollar split coin to play around with the sticker options ? The one in your youtube clip look great and somehow the edges match also . Where did you get it ?
