Alcorn and Gandalf Props

Hello, I have recently acquired a collection of magic that includes some illusion props from both Alcorn and Gandalf. I've seen some photos and ads from Alcorn, however, Gandalf seems to be more of a mystery. I have found one or two ads in all of the Genii archives but no photos. Does anyone have an...

Re: Looking for Jack Hughes World of Magic book

Richard,

The Blackpool edition was a single book and compilation of items from all three books. It was not the complete set of material from the original J.H. trilogy.

However, I believe http://www.lybrary.com has the books available in PDF form for sale.

Sincerely,
David

Re: Odd difficulty with mouth coil--am I doing something wrong?

Alain, Back when I used them in my show, DC mouthcoils were the only kind I would buy. Is it all of the coils in that package or just one so far? I used to squeeze them a bit, from top to bottom, then from side to side, to help loosen them up a bit before using them. Maybe that will help. Sincerely,...

Re: eBay Auction: Giant Guillotine for Sale - Nearly 10 Feet Tall w/ Custom Wooden Crate

After some research, it looks like this is a rare-ish version of the guillotine built by Mak Magic in the late 70's or early 80's.

If you are a collector of classic Mak Magic props, this would be a great addition.

ENDS TODAY!

Re: how to dye flash paper

I believe that D. Robbins carries colored flash paper. So, any magic dealer with a wholesale account with D. Robbins can order it for you. They seem to carry it in a number of different colors including the green you are looking for.
