Molten Steel Ball and Tube - solid climax!

Qty: 1   


The classic steel ball and tube effect (see related items) has always intrigued me, and when done well for a group of laymen, the effect will blow their minds.  It is so simple and visual, and since the props are examinable at the end, there seems to be no explanation.  It just takes a LOT of practice to do smoothly, and so that is why it is not often seen.

Improvements to the method have come along, including one that made the tube examinable without any steal or switch (see related items again).  Other versions of the classic effect added a big climax where the tube is solid or the ball and tube meld into a single unit.  Thatís where Molten Ball comes in.

This version has the classic effect of the steel ball sinking into a tube that is too small to admit the diameter of the ball.  But with Molten Ball, the tube and ball are handed out to the spectator at the end, who finds the ball and tube are a single unit.  The ball has welded itself onto the top of the tube.

Like the original classic effect, this one takes a lot of practice to get smooth, and demands that you steal away something at the end.  But the misdirection is strong for the steal, and the effect can be practiced while you watch TV.  So challenge yourself to learn a trick that most magicians are too lazy to take on!  It will be worth it when you perform it for laymen and for your fellow magi!

Comes with carrying bag and ball, tube, etc.

Steel Ball and Tube -- pocket classic

I love this trick, but not many magicians perfrom it, probably because most magi get this trick as beginners and at that point, they do not have enough practice dicipline to master the simple move involved in creating the effect.  It is simple, but does require repeated practice to perform with confidence.  However, once you have the feel of it, you can create true amazement in your spectators.

The effect is the one where a steel ball rests a top a small metal tube and then slowly sinks into the tube, then rises up again.   Straightforwad, and utterly impossible.  Deluxe versions of this trick have come out in recent years that feature solid tube climaxes, but this original classic is still very effective.    (If you have the L&L DVD set by Glenn Falkenstein & Frances Willard, you can find their excellent handling of this classic trick).

If you are a beginner who someday wants to be a highly accomplished magician, this is a great trick to start practicing your practicing.  And if you are are an experienced magician with years of practice, but somehow you never added this classic pocket illusion to your repertoire, well, you really should have it!   So you should buy this.   (If you already have a set in a drawer somewhere, you should take it out and practice it!)

From EZ Magic, brand new and unused, with a simple instruction sheet.

Steel Ball thru Bolt -- vintage brass magic
Put out by EZ Magic, but back in the 1960ís or early 70ís when they made some nice quality brass magic.   Yes, it is not a $100 Brema example of the effect, but it is stll very nicely made, works well, and could be a real fooler for a modern audience -- what is old is new, right?  This effect is very strong, and the method is ingenious (allowing for everything to be examined and a very clean, no-cover handling).    It does take a lot of practice to perform this smoothly, but it is worth it. 

Your spectators examine a brass bolt and nut, a steel ball, and a specially designed aluminum collar that fits the bolt, and has a hole for the ball to drop through.   With bolt in place, the hole is blocked.  Spectators see the bolt clearly running through the collar, and the ball is set on top.   In full view, the ball drops through the hole, and the spectators can immediately see the bolt running through the hole.   Iíll repeat, this trick takes a lot of practice. 

This one is vintage from the swinginí 60ís but in very good condition -- it has a few nicks and scuffs on the aluminum collar.  Original instructions and EZ Magic box also included.
