Of course, in the past 70 years, I've worn out, and replaced two DISECTOS. Ditto, hand dye tubes, about a half dozen, a .22 cal. A&B Magic Shooting Wand has lasted since '51, "several" brakawa wands were replaced, my Ireland golf balls, were replaced by Fakinis, although I haven't done the multiplying balls in at least 55 years, spools and spools of rope have been bought, a new Busby Egg Bag, replaced my Harold Sterling bag, in '95, many Trouble Wits have worn out and been replaced.

I'm still using the same deck of Bikes that I broke in for white glove fan productions in '51, and, are now used for fancy shuffles & flourishes, the same comedy balloon pump, purchased in '65, still works, I've had to buy several sets of 20th C. silks, (13-15 shows a week, does wear out silks, miscellaneous small silks for dye tube, etc, were replaced,linking rings (3) last forever, big silks for the Merv Taylor Tambor (only used occasionally for evening shows) are still looking good.

Oh! I bought a new coin pail. The bottom of the aluminum pail that Jack Chanin sold me in '53, was so rounded out, that it wobbled if set down. The new "Charlie Miller pail" wouldn't fit in the new prop case, so I'm now using a bucket that I paid $.89 for, in a thrift shop. The same 5 coins still work.

PS: My last print order for my "improved FRESH FISH SOLD HERE TODAY, was 10,000 sheets. They're almost all used up. I'm still doing occasional dates. I think that I retired, just in time. (Bobo and I compared notes, just before he died, and we both estimated that we had done about 20,000 shows. (Hmmm...Maybe I should write a book!)

I guess that I haven't done my part to keep the "B&Ms in business! Do ya think that the "I Bother Magicians", and the "Some Are Magicians" will take away my membership cards?

PS: I'm putting that Abbott Brakawa Fan, which I bought in '45 in the Michael Claxton Lyceum Magicians Museum. I had retired it when I bought the last of the Ed Miller fans that Frances Marshall had in stock. The silk had been replaced after about 25 years. (The Miller fans had fiber ribs--much lighter to carry!)

"Nemo 1500" (Allow me to extend, purchased decades ago)

Changed it: Any number can be mentioned (I prefer 5-to-45). Deck can be fully displayed. No d******t*s.

Love this effect! Smile

I do quite a bit of rotation, because I get lot of repeat clientele, however...

My Every Day Carry for over a year now includes:
The same Royal Magic Haunted Key (of all things...I'm still surprised that I get such great reactions from it!)
The same set of thumbcuffs
A deck of DMC Elites (though I recently acquired the improved version).

In the parlor act for over a year:

Fielding West's version of the Wings of Warsaw
Jimmy Fingers' Choppo
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
