Thanks guys!
Now that was a pretty cool swist on an old effect.
I really like this presentation as well.

Re: T-109 Midas Machine

I always liked this effect....classic Tenyo at its best. I just got it out this evening for the first time in years. I read through the instructions and demonstrated the trick for my wife. A big smile of surprise and amazement came across her face. I felt like a kid again...the same feeling I used t...

I too love penetration effects and own a small collection of such effects.

Re: Two confirmed hints towards the 2016 releases

I knew I had to have Dog House after seeing the very first demo. I preordered several a few weeks back.
I think this is the most "classic" like Tenyo piece to be released in the last five years.

Re: Two confirmed hints towards the 2016 releases

The Dog House trick really interests me the most. Though I believe I know somewhat how the trick is accomplished, it is the most “classic” looking of the 2016 line. The other three do not interest me at all…maybe Tiny Plunger a little bit. :-/

Re: T-205 Confined Cubes - plastic bar replacement

I believe Confined Cubes is a very under rated effect. I overlooked it when it was first released because I thought it was nothing more than another version of the Impossible Die Escape which I never really cared for. A few years after its release, I actually watched the video and was baffled. I dec...

Re: Chain thru (Kreis)

In my last post I kept saying "bolt" when I meant to say "nut."
David, can the nut be unscrewed and shown with the chain still running through the center?
It is a great trick for those who may be interested.

Re: Hello from Nashville, TN

Hello VictorS,

I believe Tommy Emmanuel is one of the greatest living guitar players around. I've seen him perform many times at the annual Chet Atkins Appreciation Society convention here in Nashville.
Chet Atkins was also into magic. Most people didn't know this.
