Brass Ring Box Help..........

Hi, Just got this brass box in a job lot. Looks similar to "Sing Sing Ring Box" apart from the fact that the lid is much taller and in the base there is a slotted cushion. The base has the same circular pattern as the top of the lid. I haven't got instructions for this and I don't want to ...

Re: FISM 2012 - Day Six

What are the stakes? They can hardly use the awards' photos in their publicity, especially if they want to get high class bookings. Who wants to book a scruffy magician? It also shows the recipients don't have much respect for the awards. You hit the nail on the head there Q. :cool:

Re: Amac's Find The Lady

I have seen pictures of the Great Lyle and Granville Taylor perfoming the illusion. I think those are posed photographs for publicity and not in actual performance. Why ???? In my opinion they might want to omit a certain something (set up) in those pictures than you would see in a real performance.
