You don't. Gazzo hasn't tipped his sources.

As far as baseballs go, The Rogers balls are hard to come by. You can try www.stevensmagic.com

Or you can try Simply Magic for their version of them.

Define "not expensive."

Go to eBay and look for "Monkey Fist" balls. They're usually wrapped around either glass marbles or wood beads. Both are heavier than what you're using now. Plus they're not exactly "round" so they don't roll away quite so easily.

Some people make them as a hobby and sell them for less than $20 a set. Others supply professional shops and they go for $45 and up. Look closely at the photos to see if the quality is up to your liking.

I was going to direct him to Frank's Nylon cord Monkey fist balls or mouse balls, but I thought they might be a little out of his price range.

Be my guest. Make these Nylon Cord ones that Franks makes. Let's see the quality in yours :roll: http://www.theambitiouscard.com/aitem.cfm?itemid=30

Anyway, do you want to spend the time making leather Monkey fist balls?

I didn't mean monkey fist balls, I meant those mini baseballs :roll:. I know monkey fist balls take far longer to make than just doing a few calculations, cuts and stitches.

I've made a set, it took about 12 minutes a ball.

^ wow i'm jealous, that's fast!

and yes shteig613, I can send you the way to make very similar balls, let me write it up for you and just draw a few pictures to make it clear how, if you want to make monkey fist balls instead though (which some people prefer) I can just guide you to some instructional vids.
