Re: This one baffled me...

Hello all, for those that purchased Cleverly Threaded I was a little disappointed with the quality of the paint job done on this effect. I found mine started to flake and peel almost instantly, so I thought I would try giving it a new coat of paint. I found that a light sanding of the base and the t...

Re: This one baffled me...

Interesting! I'm familiar with the original hover card, but the clean ability to grab the card in the air and show all faces is very cool. Nice effect!

Re: This one baffled me...

Victor is correct on all his statements. I can't comment yet on quality as the effect hasn't arrived yet. But it does appear well made and I like that it folds flat for travel.

Re: This one baffled me...

I recently saw this and thought the method employed was very cool so I purchased a copy. It's an effect marketed by Astor called Trio in case other forum members are interested. http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S12250

Re: This one baffled me...

I received my Cleverly Threaded effect. It was well package and shipping time was reasonable. I'm happy with my purchase as the price point was great but I believe they could have done a better job in painting the apparatus. This is not a big sore point with me as seeing it online I immediately didn...

Fantastic Review David! I also can't wait for mine to arrive. I ponder painting my top lid black to match the base instead of blue and that might help the effect. Either way I should have a lot of fun with the effect. I've been pondering patter for the effect and talking about getting older and how ...

Re: This one baffled me...

Yes Kirk, I'll let you know, the one thing I like about this version is how easy it will be to hide that certain something. Handling should look quite natural.

:shock: Wow Simon! You made that version! Great work!

Re: This one baffled me...

Hi Simon, actually the principle is completely different than Blockbuster. Blockbuster is a much more complicated mechanism, Cleverly Threaded is much simpler. Thanks for reminding me of Blockbuster as it's very cool to see two similar effects with very different methods!

Re: This one baffled me...

I have seen this before! In fact I saw a vintage version for sale in an EBay auction. It uses the same principle, see this link here https://www.ebay.ca/itm/172458174033

If you look closely at the pictures you should be able to figure out how the effect is done. ;)

Re: Ignition by Chris Smith

It's a very clever way to perform the thru bill effect and be totally clean at the end (after you've taken a dump obviously) For ages when this came out I was looking at it and thinking "you must be able to spot the retractable/removable parts under close inspection" then the square shape of the he...
