My friend showed me an interesting coin gaff recently. Basically it's a Kennedy half that was cut in two in a straight line and you get one of the halves. Anybody know where I can find this gaff?

do you mean half of a Kennedy half dollar? if so, you get it in public transit http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=476 as a free extra trick called "half a coin trick", I got two of them back when it was a free bonus just for that "coin" :S

Yeah that's the one I'm looking for, any clue where I can buy it by itself?

If i am understanding you correctly, can't you just cut a kennedy half in half. Get a circular saw or something?

hrrrm, I haven't seen it sold alone, best thing to do would either wait for it to be a promo again... (since all the other promos probably are lamer than that coin :P) :/ or try sawing a half dollar in half yourself with a clamp and saw, or maybe you can keep hammering half the coin until it gets worn from all the bending and breaks...? :S

You think wire cutters would work?

You could cut a Half Dollar in half with a Bandsaw ... but be forewarned ... the blade cutting through any Coin that size and thickness is going to get extremely hot as is the Blade.
Another thing, it may take 2 or 3 Blades because they're going to get dull very fast because the metal is very hard.
Trust me on this ... I worked with Bandsaws for over 20 years, but I was cutting thin Aluminum, a much softer metal than a Coin !

I have this gaff and made it myself (unaware of its existance) about a year ago.
I used these huge bolt cutters that just cut it in half like scissors.
I'll look up the tool online and post a link of what it is. :D

Hope this helps

It works perfect.. one fine cut and I sanded the rough edges.
