i have been having a lot of trouble bending coins.i stick a coin in a machien that you crank and two peice of metal get closer and closer. and it bends the coin but the edges of the coin are flat and it would ruin an effect. ive tried plyers and the same thing happenes. ive put wood on both sides of the coin and ive put cloth on both sides of the coin but it stils comes out flat on the edges. the coin just goes through those materials i need help.



thanks, harry

Use a vice and tap lightly on the coin with a rubber mallet. :wink:

Try using the cloth and plyers again, only this time, have MORE cloth rapped around the coin and then bend it with the plyers.

I've done bending coins with just 1 piece of cloth rapped around the coin and used plyers to bend it and it worked fine for me, except I must have squeezed a little too hard because there is a little dent mark in the coin. I still use it because I'm too lazy to bend another coin :lol: , although I should do it...

i think that coin bending is cheap because all you have to do is use a hammer and a vise and a little slight of hand

then everything in magic is cheap since all you need is a coin and a bit of slieght of hand or a deck of cards and a bit of slieght of hand :roll:

Hi guys, I know it's my first post but I'm just new to Penguin not to magic. On this coin bending issue though, when I used to work in a machine shop we had nice table mounted vices that handled this with ease, of course there's always the Boa coin bender.
