I purchased a Sherms checker cabinet a while
back which lacks everything but the cabinet.
The effect per the Sherms catalog is formally
known as "Chang's Disks and Water" which exchanges
the checkers with a tall fish bowl.

I am trying to find someone who has one of these
so that I can get measurements and possibly pictures of the missing pieces. The catalog gives
an illustration of the effect but nothing too
specific.

I am told there were only 50 made of these so
finding one could be problematic as it was one
of the more expensive items in their catalog
($60.00). The Sherms book includes only the
catalog description of this effect. Any help
would be appreciated, thx...Matt

Picture is attached.

Thanks to tip from another Genii Forum member,
I did contact Dave Haversat who wrote the Sherms
book. He did know of another Sherms cabinet but this one also was lacking the discs, fake, tube,
stand, and water containers. This one and mine
apparently both came from the old Sherms stock
and was missing the accessories that make it
all work.

If anyone else, knows anything please let me
know, thx...
