Re: New 2017 Tenyo Line Coming Out on Thursday Sept.22

Those two brass tricks are not being manufactured by Tenyo. Most likely, they are a product of India or China where practically all of the brass magic comes from. Tenyo will be just one of many sources for those two products. In essence, whoever is making these brass products will not be giving Teny...

Re: Rob Rand and Magic Wagon's Ultimate Card Penetration

By the way, if you are a bit clever in making gimmicked cards, you can make that Bromley card yourself :) If you have Rubber Dental Dam... Woukd you happen to know what thickness is required? I am pretty sure that I can get some from my dentist. If you can provide me with the method for making the ...

Re: T-245 Ghost Lamp

I think it's a great idea! They look great and I would prefer to use those instead of the cards.

Rob Rand and Magic Wagon's Ultimate Card Penetration

I ordered Magic Wagon's Ultimate Card Penetration and when it arrived, I was quite disappointed. First, I felt that the very long and very thin brass rod needed to be replaced. Second, after discovering the method, I wondered how I would pull this effect off successfully. It left me flat. Then, I sa...

Re: Alan Warner Magic

The problem with all those reviews is almost all of them are 'excellent/4 or 5 stars' :D Good point David! Please allow me to suggest the following. You can narrow it down by motif, type of effect and apparatus, and so on. For example, if you want his pieces with the Egyptian motif, there is plenty...

Re: T-245 Ghost Lamp

And as a last resort there is Steve who will have a nice amount in stock ;) :lol: With some yes and some no. It's interesting how availability greatly varies after Tenyo discontinues a T number. For example, Prison Box, Fortune Sticks, and President's Cabinet all seemed to become scarce much faster...

We can say goodbye to Vanishing Point and I am pretty sure Invisible Zone as well.

Re: T-245 Ghost Lamp

Hmmm...I think so. A Japanese friend informed me about two months ago so I am assuming the information is accurate.

Perhaps it would be best to wait until Tenyo officially marks it as such.

Did Tenyo mark Crystal Cleaver as discontinued? I was told to say goodbye to that one as well.

Re: Alan Warner Magic

I am a big fan of his work but own only six of his creations. My favorites are the three puzzle effects. That is, Red Chinese Puzzle, The Oracle, and Rainbow Puzzle. I love them! They are all based on a similar puzzle which I really like so I had to have those pieces. Fun to handle, practice, and pe...

Hi Robert and thank you for the warm welcome. Yes, I am who you think I am and it's great to hear that I have been helpful to you. It's a blessing to help others in a Tenyo way. I am hoping to have the opportunity to see you play that blues guitar in person in the not too distant future! A fun time ...

Re: T-245 Ghost Lamp

Tenyo discontinued Ghost Lamp recently. I suspect that they will dry up in the not too distant future. If you want one, this may be a good time to acquire it.

Re: A big hello from a fellow Tenyo addict!

Thanks for the welcome David! Yes, those guys are me. David has kindly helped me by providing needed instructions for some Tenyos. I should learn how to read Japanese and stop bothering you for the English versions. :lol: By the way, your website is a terrific place! I have visited there many times.

I am happy to hear that I played a role in building your Tenyo collection John. I joined this forum for the pleasant friendship it offers but will certainly make whatever Tenyo I have available to members at the best prices possible. Family discounts... ;) Great to be here with all of the fellow Ten...

Re: A big hello from a fellow Tenyo addict!

Thank you very much for the greeting Rob! No, unfortunately not. Early on, I only bought the ones I would use. Then, when the shop closed, I lost touch with Tenyo releases for a very long time. When I finally got interested in Tenyo again, I had already missed many of their releases. I have caught u...
