It appears that they forgot to remove this one for free; don't wait! Download it now! NO, they are
probably raising the price (like they should!) as you are reading this! Wait to finish and go
...You done? Good.
This is NOT a new, revolutionary concept but a
MUCHO easy retention vanish allowed using the properties of a prop EVERYONE has. I really, really
like this one and the video was entertaining within itself.
Plus, Alvo has a way of
getting you to think of other, cool uses for tricks and routines with random objects; so, if they do
raise the price for this, it will STILL be worth it for the value of the added creativity.

Alvo has a point in this download, these false movements that we do as magicians can really lessen
the impact of a vanish or other effect.
We should really strive for "economy of motion" and
if we eliminate all these sneaky looking moves from our performances that we'll all be better for
It was Dai Vernon who said that if there was no false moves, then you'd have a good
effect. Doing it with a washer helps!
I have no problem with this video, the effect, or the teaching. A washer is an organic item, which
makes for a better reaction from the audience, but it's still not something that is commonly
available in any given performing situation. You're still going to have to introduce it somehow.
Easy but effective trick.
its a good idea but it is very simple but you can use it to vanish the washer and appear it in your
pocket or some where else if have fast hands
So this is a move with a washer Alvo Stockman created, that is all, you get what you pay for or
Thanks for the time creating this and sharing. I was hoping it was something I could
put alongside Holey Moley/Holey Stretch,it wasn't, they use different size washers.
thought I could just do this routine along side it anyway,do a whole washer set, but couldn't
because it's just a move and not a routine. Appreciate the efforts Alvo but thought you would step
with a bit more at least show some of the coin routines it works with, for those lacking imagination
I am thinking a spellbound production to a vanish.
It's fun. it's clean. As for routine, incomplete. Which is why I give it 3.5 stars.
extremely simple to learn, which I loved. It's smart, and like I said looks very clean. I enjoy it
and was able to do it the second I picked up the right washer (which you really can buy anywhere
that sells hardware).
The problem that I have with it is it seems incomplete. There are
other tricks out there with washers, but this vanish won't work with them (Ie. Holy Moly).
Props to Alvo for thinking of this, and it is fun as a single trick. I'd use it at a party, or
while helping someone move in, or while helping them repair or build something. That's about it.
It's a nice little handling to use for washers. It a variation of a different coin vanish, but more
convincing because of how the finger is used. It's a small trick, but could be better suited as part
of a routine
This is a phenomenal vanish!
Obtain some coins like halves or silver dollars and drill a
nice sized hole right through the center. Now along with this vanish one can do a restored coin
routine or a coin and string routine. If one has some Chinese coins, do a transposition.
This is an interesting effect. I like the concept, but don't really use this on a regular basis.
It's always good to have in the back of my mind if I need to bring it out. That's why I gave it a 3
out of 5. Good to know if you want to use it.
