Sorry Payne! Not "currently". That post of his was made in '06. Links are long dead.

Just for general information -- that particular set was made by Tayade, Sr., who passed away about a decade or so ago. They are not rare, but are seldom found in pristine condition, primarily because the finish is very easy to damage.

If you want to try working with a functional set before you invest in some real 'beauts' you can make your own set from three deconstructed "ring for service" type bells and drawer pulls from a hardware store. The bells unscrew very easily and already have the needed hole to attach the knob?

I actually ended up making a set from wooden knobs and coconut shells. I decided I don't really love the trick, so I'm not going to get a good set.

Someone somewhere showed a routine using glass percolator tops. Finding three matching tops now would be a better trick than the Cups & Balls.
Or maybe not. https://www.etsy.com/listing/947757781/5......e=all&ga

Those Fire King percolator tops are not suitable for use as Indian style cups. The configuration of the handle is wrong. It needs to be slightly dished so a ball can rest upon it.

Andy Martin's sight has a Tayade set for sale, but the auction is expiring quickly.
