Agreed yes, but when it becomes a prop, it takes away from the magic.

I love this one. The can looks good enough to look like a nice can. ? It's not going to be handed out and inspected and judged for it's quality. I did this at a birthday party for my first group performance with it and it was really fun. The parents had fun playing along with the productions and laughing at the "cute" trick with the children until I produced the big coin and then their eyes popped open wider than the kids! lol It got genuine applause from the parents. I'm considering using the sleights like Zombie says, but it also works fine as is.

As I re-think this and look at it again closely:

It isn't a soup can for sure. It is actually way better than what I was remembering.
I fully apologize for my "soup" can comment... I wish I could delete that post.

It is thicker and does work like a charm.
And as Mr. Lawton points out; it's not going to be handed out. Although, you very well could. Nothing to find anyways. But very good point.
It doesn't take a hard hit with the hand at all to hear the coins. Just a quick tap really.

You can't beat this one for the super low price.

I REALLY wish I could delete my post!!!
I have done that with e-mail too! Typed it up right away, with no thought.
So again, I am sorry for my misleading comment.
OK. I just re-read this one. Good to go!!! Smile

Respectively,
Mike Newman

Not quite sure what you mean, Rizzo, but I think we're on the same page. When I say 'prop', I mean theatrical prop. Like a chair, or table or rug, whatever appears on stage, magical or not! I do agree that there should be no heat on the bucket used in a Miser's Dream routine.

Best,

Tom

Just to add my 2 cents I love it and my metal "pail" is as in video . But I understand sometimes things have to change due to changes from a supplier.

Also the method used allows you to be very creative. I mean you do not necessarily have to use the supplied pail .just a thought.

That's the one I have. I can't think of a better way to do the Miser's Dream ( for me ).

Greetings and Salutations,

I've had this for years. Used it a few times. I'm redoing my show, and it's going back in because it's fast and easy while I work on perfecting a sleight-of-hand version so I can incorporate a handful of coins into a follow-up routine. But, for the time being, Solari's routine/props perfectly suits my purposes. It packs as small as can be, looks good, is easy to perform, and allows the me to concentrate on presentation. And it's $25!

Just my $.02 (USD) worth. YMMV.
