Instructions for Louis Tannen KNOT BOX by Norman Jensen

I recently bought this item on eBay without instructions....does anybody have these and could scan a copy for me. I'd be happy to take a picture of the prop and email it as verification that I indeed own it.

Hi Wolfgang
Looking at the photo from ebay,(first time I've seen one), I was reminded of 'The Rope Mender' from Nelms' 'Magic and Showmanship'.

I should imagine you would do the standard 'cut' bit for the C&R rope thus leaving a small piece tied around the centre, then, as the rope goes in the box the knot is placed in the centre 'V' compartment. You then do the standard 'Die Box' stuff, finally pulling the rope free which leaves the knot concealed in the 'V' and open both doors.

I like this, might make one for myself. Does the 'V' compartment hinge at all or is it solid? Hope this is of some help.
Best Wishes, Alex
