Four little anodized aluminum "logs" or bars are shown. Each log has four long sides, and each side has four apparently random digits on it. When the logs are randomly turned and placed side by side, the digits on each log combine to four random four-digit numbers. Before the spectator can punch the first one into his calculator to add them up, the magi names the sum of all four numbers. The effect can be immediately repeated, and of course the total is always different. Those of you using nail writers also can do an incredible prediction effect using these.
Part magic, and part mathematical dexterity...with no special math skills needed. Highly recommended.
I'm happy I was able to find a few of these nice solid aluminum sets again, as they have not been readily available in recent years. When I would come across one in an estate sale, it would sell for $22-$25. But I can sell the few I have now for less than that, so you have no reason to not add this to your close-up repertoire. (There are hollow plastic sets available of this effect, but not only do they look and feel "cheap", they are actually harder for the spectator to mix and combine for different totals because they are too lightweight.)
Need one more reason to buy this? Okay -- I will include written instructions for my own personal routine with the Calculation Logs -- a three phase routine with increasingly more amazing divinations and revelations!
Brand new with instructions and extra TMGS handling.
NOTE: as you can see in the enlarged photo, the rods have small "nicks" or marks on some of the edges -- this is how they arrived from the manufactuer; they are not signs of use. These sets are brand new and unused. But you will find minor imperfections as shown in the photo. They do not effect the working or lessen the stunning impact of this effect.
