The Buddhas are the top dogs for me. Chazpro is about the only place you can get them. Think they make them, but not sure.

I have an aluminium "3 boxes" set (half dollar) and I am super happy with it: excellent value for money. I believe you can still purchase it online at various retailers.
I'd love getting a dollar size buddha box, but those are quite hard to find. Some time ago, Chuck told me they do not ship outside US and apparently resellers cannot offer the dollar version.

Me, I start with no 'stuck coin' and do some things in a spectator's hand, then I add the extra coin for the final moves.
A tiny bit of magician wax on the inside of the lip is all that is required (and razor blade to get it out).

I have several boxes and just like the balance of the Buddha the best, but that may be "first love."

Years ago I had one plus coins in the glove compartment of my card. It was stolen.
A week later the box was resting on the seat of the car, minus the coins. Go figure!

I saw a couple of weeks ago Chazpro had a dollar sized box in stock. Tempting!

The original RNT sold a great looking Boston Box that was magnetic and came with the necessary special half dollar. I don't know if anyone (Jake Jr. & Co.?) offers a set like this now.

In retrospection, I'm not certain whether both were magnetic or just one or the other...?

I also got a set of Zee boxes from Airship like Steph suggested that have been top notch. I would recommend them as well. Airship was nice to work with too.

Another vote for the Buddha box. The weight and the rounded sides make working with it very easy. I always had trouble with the classic straight-sided designs.

I recently (4-7-21) inquired about the Chazpro line of Buddha boxes and was told by Chuck that Chazpro had sold the rights to the Buddha box line to another vendor and that he would forward my info to the new vendor. Never heard anything back from the new vendor...

Any chance he gave the name of the new vendor?

The Buddha box is a great box. I bought mine from Chazpro over 20 yrs.ago. I had put it away for over 10 yrs and I finally dug it back out when I got a nice set of coins to work with. I'm working on a routine right now.
I hate hearing that Chazpro sold out to another vendor.
