Easy to follow DVD instructional and you can actually do as it instructs. Most parts in any hardware store. You can make a few modifications of your own to make it a bit smaller I found but the one they teach you to build is practical and will work every time particularly if you check the batteries before the show.

Build your own card fountain for closer to $35-$40 Report this review

the title is certainly misleading.
Card fountains on the market start at around $60-$75.
After spending $20 on the DVD, and then the price of supplies you'll easily be up in the $50-$60 range if not more depending on if you have all the tools needed.... and it may be a better idea for some magicians to just buy a professionally made card fountain.
If you're like me and you prefer to build your own props then this DVD is great for you. It requires very little knowledge about drilling, wiring, and a little soldering.
The end result will not be as small or pretty as the ones you may buy on the market, but it will be yours... and that's something to be proud of.

The title is misleading though. Unless the parts required are much cheaper wherever this was filmed, there is no way to keep the price under $20. I already had all the tools, so those don't need to be calculated into the price... but by just buying the pieces you need to build the fountain yesterday, I'm already at $34.
Granted, you do get multiple pieces in some of the packages... perhaps they are saying the price to build it is under $20 if you average it out over a couple complete fountains. If you build just one it will not be that cheap.

Build Your Own Card Fountain Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 28th, 2013
I did a thorough review of every card fountain on the market and ultimately settled on this video because the finished fountain seemed to have the greatest balance between ability and price. I was able to watch the video the day I got it, gather the supplies needed over the next several days and within a week I had a very reliable and professional working card fountain. I have already used it in a show to rave response. My finished fountain shoots five to six feet in the air out of a hat I hide it in. I built the fountain for $68.69 plus the price of the video, so like $80 total. The major tools you’ll need to get into this card fountain as inexpensively as possible are a drill with standard sized drill bits, soldering iron, wire stripper/cutter, screw driver, and pliers. If you have these or can borrow them you will significantly cut down on the price, this is what I did. I realize the total price at $80 is comparable to other entry level fountains you could just buy on the market without investing any time, but I firmly believe that this fountain works better than any model you could buy in the entry level category of card fountains. Furthermore, I have enough left over parts now that I could easily build a second fountain for under or close to $20. The greatest advantage of buying this video is gaining the knowledge they impart to you. You can easily go out with their knowledge and some common sense after building this fountain and make a more improved and powerful version if you wanted. If you have basic building knowledge and are a DIY person like me you will love learning to make this product, just don't buy it expecting to save money on a card fountain. Think of this purchase as an investment, with a solid product at the end that you will be proud to own. Overall, the video delivers what it promises which is why I give it 5 stars.
