I am sure Norm's coin effect was an electronic device. A lot more complicated then you think. So for 10 feet you would have to add a remote. To bad, Owen's Magic is out of business, they would have been the people to help you.

I heard, His wife sold all his props, I did not hear who the collector may have acquired his stage act props.

Norm's was not electronic.

Richard Hughes, I don't believe you are thinking of what Bairefoot is referring to. During Norms act, you see a coin very slowly moving out midway out from the ladder. Then drops as Norm throws a coin into the air toward the ladder. The coin cascades down the the rungs.

I believe that could only be accomplished by remote. If I am wrong, then it was time set, and that meant that Norm perfectly timed his act, to coincide with his throwing of the coin. I believe it was electronics because he did use electronics with his finale violin coming out and bowing at the end.

Norm was a perfectionist, and this could have been him perfectly timing the actions.

I think that there was two instances a coin fell down the ladder, one was when Norm threw a coin, and again when a coin fell midway from the rungs. That one was used for misdirect at that point in the act. His act was perfection.

I made a solution where I got a Jewelry box motor and put a string on the motor and this pulls the string which is attached to card. It pulls the card and the coin falls.
