STEEL BALL THROUGH GLASS

Post by BluBob » Wed Aug 17, 2016 10:58 pm

I have always loved the Steel Ball Through Glass penetration effect.

It seems "Tenyo-like" to me, and that Tenyo would have created a cool plastic version of this. (a la Alpha Tunnel)

Which version of this effect do you think is the best-ever? (Can be ANY version)

Mine looks very similar to th one in your pic Bob. On mine, one of the s***s r*****s so you can s***e out the g***s.
Ah I don't need to protect the method here, One of the swans recedes so you can scare out the goats.

Is yours a certain brand/make? (I.e., Owens, Powell, Generic?)

I never owned one of these, and I would like to find a good one for the collection.

Thank you,

No particular make, I got mine on eBay about 10years ago!

In the right hands this is a great effect, but I never really liked it gimmick wise. Too much covering up ;) I do know some versions are 'lockable' which makes them examinable - this is a huge plus of course. Should you buy one be sure it can be 'locked'!

Thank you, I will be on the lookout for one with a locking mechanism.

I understand how it works, I have a soft spot for classics like the Steel Ball and Tube, Dial-X, and others.

Check out these moves with "Brass Tube and Steel Ball."
