Head to www.dennymagic.com and type into the search engine "Thomas Wayne". You will find Thomas' leather cylinders described:

"From Thomas Wayne comes a beautiful all leather cylinder for the Ramsey Coins and Cylinder routine. This black leather cylinder stands 2 5/8" high with rolled and stitched ends and comes with two wooden cocobolo wood end caps to keep your cylinder in perfect shape for many years. It is the perfect cylinder for use with the Silver Dollar size Coins and Cylinder routine." (or you a can get half dollar size coin one)

I have a question for Mr. De Camps. There is a point at the beginning of the Cylinder routine where the cork is dropped back into an (apparently) empty cylinder held in the hand, but is in fact dropped on top of the coin stack (while the second cork is brought out from under the cylinder as if it passed through). I would be afraid of some "talking" at this point (with a lifesaver) as it hit the coin stack. Is this a problem? If so, how do you cover the noise? Is your voice enough to cover the sound? I like the idea of a lifesaver, but this one point in the routine would make me concerned.

Hey guys I just posted a review of Thomas Wayne's professionally crafted Ramsay Cylinder and Coins props at http://www.coinvanish.com.

If you are looking for some very nice looking props be sure to take a look.

Dan;
Thanks for the informative review. I always enjoy seeing how others solve various construction concerns. Thomas can be counted upon to do an excellent job and it looks like he has come through again. The real question: Have you mastered the routine with Thomas' equipment yet?

Can I perform it deceptively yet? Yes. Mastered it? Not even close.

I personally put in over a year on the first C&C routine I learned before I ever performed it in public. That year included hundreds of rehearsals (perhaps over a thousand) including more than one hundred videotaped rehearsals. Obsessive? Maybe, but this routine - in its several current incarnations - is worth that kind of devotion and commitment to excellence.

I know several top guys who perform it on a regular bassis and any one of them would spend a few hours on any given day discussing the various and subtle nuances of their favorite version (in fact, several HAVE done so with me over the last few months).

The question was about MASTERING the routine... but the REAL question should be, does anyone EVER master this routine? Bob Kohler, who taught me the current version I do, has been performing the Cylinder and Coins for many, many years; nevertheless, just the other day he shared his latest ideas for a new "even better" version.

If you love this routine as much as I (and others) do, you'll never truly "master" it.

Regards,
Thomas Wayne

Hi Thomas, do you have your cylinders available now? I know you must be really busy with the holdout still? Cheers.

I've heard that Galloway has recently released videos or DVD's on C&C.

Anyone know a source to obtain??

Thanks,

Hey Gene, the source for those videos and a link to them are right in that review I wrote on the Cylinder and Coins props. Its www.internationalmagic.com. They are videos.

Because of the marked increase in inquiries I've received about the Cylinder and Coin sets I thought I should mention that I only make the pinned stacks *in conjunction* with cylinder orders. As I've told a number of magicians who are requesting JUST the pinned stacks, I really only make them to go with the complete set.

Since I'm not in the gaffed coin business it doesn't make much sense for me to set up to make the stacks only; after the cost of the coins there's very little reward and the coins are a pain to acquire. Meanwhile, if you're only looking for the coin stack, there are much simpler resources available.

My recommendation to those who only need the coins is to go to Todd Lassen, (563) 323-3048. If you need the entire set with Cylinder, end caps AND coins I will be happy to accommodate you, but if you only need the coins, call Todd. That's his specialty.

Regards,
Thomas Wayne

Mr. Wayne,

Do you ever make the cylinders in colors other than black?

Thanks,

Geoff

MANY other colors; it just depends on the availability of the leather from my supplier. I also make them in various snakeskins, lizard and other exotic hides.

Black calf, kid and/or lambskin seem the favorite by far, however.

Thomas Wayne

The Galloway tapes are definitely worth getting and easy to get from International Magic.

I just received a dollar size leather cylinder (with cocobolo end caps), a coin stack, and an ebony wand with silver ferrules that Thomas Wayne crafted. If you're looking for some beautifully constructed items for the coins and cylinder routine, look no further!

I also received a nice package from Thomas Wayne two days ago. What great stuff. The leather cylinder is a beauty: such a nice contrast between the black leather and the richly colored Cocobolo caps. The three coin Morgan stack is very well done. The use of a shell as the top coin sure gives the stack plenty of inside space. I also received the wallet for the U3F and what a nice complement to this great gaff set. The best piece in the package is the same custom wand Thomas made for Bill Malone. At $325 it sounds expensive for a wand, but what a wand to behold and well worth it.
