When the koins are in 'ready-to-perform' set-up, i.e. green/pink and pink/green, are the gimmicks supposed to be really loose? That is, if I were to turn the koins over without supporting the bottoms, are they supposed to be able to fall right off? I ask this because I just got mine today from an eBayer who said they were new, and they certainly do look it. I was just surprised that the thin parts are not at all m*******. Once the trick is done, they sure do stick well, and can be examined without any fear. It's just that beginning part I might need to worry about. If you guys say that this is normal, then I guess I could just work on the handling to be nice and slow and sure that the piece is in the right place. If this is not normal, well then, I shall contact the fellow who sold it to me and inquire accordingly.

Thanks, Jay Smile

Yes, If they are too tight or sticky, the "gimmick" will not operate properly. Please note the oil from your hand will also make them sticky so clean them periodically. As long a the gimmicks are not loose in the finish position, you have a good set.

Riff is right--that's how it works. You want them to come off easily.

kamillion koins are fun, but if I remember correctly you can actually handle them in the get ready position without the plates falling off.

I'll have to check my set out tonight. It's been a few years since I have messed with them.
