I can testify to that. When I got my copy of the second edition, I wanted to make all the gaffs. It took a lot of cursing, swearing and gnashing of teeth, but in the end I had made most of the gaffs (except the shrunken card in Telescopic Alice). However, after I had made the cards, I didn't dare to use them, because I knew how difficult it was to replace them if something happened to them during a performance.
"Holy Point of Arrival" was especially tricky to make. When I made the acrobatic gaff as thin as an ordinary card, then it was easy to stretch the rubber too much - causing the card to tear itself apart after a few days. But stretching it too little made the gaff unreliable. And making the gaff thicker made it feel weird in the hands. It took a long while before I finally managed to get it right.
So Richard is right, the gaffs are extremely difficult to make. And there isn't any descriptions in the book about how the gaffs are created, so everything has to be extrapolated from the text.
