Troublewit

Postby timbrown » September 2nd, 2005, 7:32 am

Is there a good reference book or publication with clear directions for folding a a Troublewit? A cursory search of the internet hasn't resulted in much although I did find directions for "Troublewit-like" items that were interesting . I would really like to learn how to fold a Troublewit (like the one that I purchased from Magic Inc. years ago) and would greatly appreciate any advice.

Thanks,

Tim Brown

I have the intructions as a Word file.

Can't remember where I found them, though.

I could e-mail them to you.

If anybody else wants it, here's where to look - http://www.sgi.com/misc/grafica/fold/page001.html

Magic Inc. still has troublewits for sale. They are the colored ones judging from the website.

Thanks Dave for the instructions. As Pete said they aren't for the Troublewit (at least not like the one that I bought from Magic Inc.). I "reverse engineered" the one that I have and pretty much figured out how to do it although my paper isn't quite the right size or texture and my proportions are a little off. It isn't too difficult on an origami scale but it takes a little time to do it correctly.

The Frank Herman book is just great. I consider it the "dictionary" for Troublewit users.

Check: http://www.midwestmagic.net/html/Search ... Troublewit


Or Google Search: Frank Herman, Troublewit

Enjoy the search,

Oops. Sorry 'bout that.

I came across that web page years ago when researching some Origami-based effect, and saved it 'cos "it might come in useful some time". I had no idea what a Troublewit was, nor what one did with it. And when the question was asked here, I remembered the name and dug out the file.

I must find out what a Troublewit really is.
