A friend and I were discussing a ring and rope trick tonight. It was a favorite of a now deceased friend who would sit at a table, stand a hardback book up with pages pointing at him,lay both ends of a rope over each book cover (ends are visible to the audience). Then he took a borrowed finger ring behind the book and made to join the ring and rope (with hammer, torch, grinder, etc). The finale is the rope ends are cleanly lifted and the undamaged ring is now on the rope.
Is anyone familiar with this plot or know the name of this trick? It might have used a string, but we think a rope. Fred Kaps has something similar in his Magic Circle lecture "Its so simple" but that is a ring off rope... not on the rope.
Its not sefalagia because the two ends are picked up at the same time.
Does this ring a bell for anybody?

Rowdy, some members take exposure very seriously, and do not like to link magic on an open forum. I have listed two websites you can look though the contents and to look for dalo's reference.

I can really recommend all tre DVDs

De Cova has a lot of good routines and original thinking.

Thanks for the help with the links Bill.

DeCovas routine is totally different than the effect which is the subject of this thread.

I remember seeing a video someone shared here in the Café of Dean Dill doing something as the OP described. In the video, Dean's two helpers were his son and his sons girlfriend. I can not find that video again.

wow it's a stunner ! Can't see if the ring is really on the rope though, but I guess it is. No the same as Dean Dill's method.
Thanks Vinny

This one looks more direct than Deans, but I'm not sure if he ends as clean as Dean's method.

Does anyone know what happened to the performer? I forget his name but he used to own an online magic store.

Today, I visited the Facebook page for illusion works. The have at the top of the page the Dean Dill video referenced. A finger ring seemingly penetrates a cotton string behind a book. This effect is very old, and is published in some very old magic books. I can't reference it now, but I remember seeing it as a teenager.

This video was made to entertain magicians and fool them by using a different method. Assuming the video is posted on Illusion.Works Facebook page, as advertisement for their new style Himber Ring. Dean Dell used this ring in a video previously with the Dean Box. I believe this solves the mystery.

Hi Vinny,
I was fortunate enough to see Dean perform this at his Shoppe on several occasions. I had always assumed it was the Slydini effect?!

I don't think it is worth having to buy a $700.00 finger ring just to do this magician fooler.

Where can one find these two effects? Are they available commercially or in a book?
