New From AirShip Magic. Improved Brass Locking Ball & Tube

https://airshipmagic.com/store/home/143-......ect.html

Ad Copy:

You show a brass tube and a steel ball, the ball is clearly too large to fit in the tube.
However on your command the ball slowly sinks down into the tube. Now on your command the ball slowly rises back to the top of the tube.
You now immediately hand out the props for examination!
They will find nothing, and will not be able to get the ball to go into the tube - it won’t fit.
No switching!

Nothing to ditch
Improved Locking System
Can be examined Before and After Performance

Looks promising, Jake. And knowing your exceptional craftsmanship, I am tempted.

Says Improved Locking System but I would be curious how it differs from the previous model put out by Johnson Products?
Which I already own.

Johnson mass produced them spitting them out on a CNC. The precision was off on a lot of them. The locking mech. was too tight and would jam.

I turn these on a manual Jet lathe the threads have been refined. My attention to precision is powered by my OCD. The threading of the gaff
is a smoother. I have to say, and I don't like doing it, but this beats anything on the market today. Each tube takes about 90 minutes to make.
We have a CNC machine here and could spit them out like not tomorrow like Johnson did, but there is a quality and precision loss because the
pieces are not matched and machined at the same time. Each tube I make is two matched precision pieces.

I'm not bragging on my own work, but I am Proud of what I can offer for reasonable prices for a Classic effect.

Kindest Regards,
Jake Jr.

Thanks for the info Jake Jr.
You do excellent work at very reasonable prices.
I wish there were more magic manufacturers who listened to feedback from their customers as much as you do.

I can never understand why so many magic manufacturers choose to have an almost adversarial relationship with their customers (such as T-boys, but there are certainly many others.)

Long live Airship Magic!!!

I also will be ordering one today. Of all the items I've been buying (I'm a newbie so I've been going a little crazy buying things) the things I've bought from Jake are the best quality by far.

I’ve never had any interest in this effect/plot but picked this up. Looks great quality and seems like a nice pocket effect.

Purchased three of these gems.. One for my self and two for my teen sons. My 16 year old who is in his senior year of high school will do this for his physics teacher.

Thank you to all that ordered. We're all caught up on shipping so everyone should be getting theirs in the next day or two. The quality comes from making each set by hand on a lathe
and not using a CNC on them.

The delay was because of Hurricane Dorian, we were shut down for 12 days. It took us 5 days to secure the shops for the hurricane and another 5 to put them all back together for production.
We're very sorry about this, but this is mother nature's fault this time. Living right on the water isn't always as glamorous as it sounds.

Kindest Regards,
Jake Jr.

Great quality. I’ve never had this effect before so I didn’t know the method. If I hadn’t read the instructions, I would never have found the method. The precision is that good.

I've ordered one and intend to spend a while toodling with it without reading the instructions to see if I can figure it out. Only way to replicate what a spectator will experience. Once you know you can never unknow.

Wow! It is exquisite. I do not know how Mad Jake does it but his Improved Brass Locking Ball & Tube is a real masterpiece and work of art. He is a true craftsman.

Jake, I closely examined all the product photos on your website--I think I will take a brass Ball n Tube, three shimmed poker chips, and your brother's severed scrotum.
