Description

This amazing solid through solid effect happens right under the spectator’s nose!

A nut, a bolt and a small chain are the apparatus supplied. All can be handled and examined by a spectator.

Effect : A nut, a bolt and a small chain are given to a spectator. The nut and bolt have holes drilled through them for the chain to pass through. The bolt has two holes drilled into it. One hole is near the head of the bolt and the other hole is near the end of the bolt. The spectator threads the bolt through the nut so as to align the hole in the nut with the hole in the bolt that is near the end of the bolt. Now the spectator passes the chain through the aligned holes. They are asked to turn the bolt to move the nut but they are unable to do this, as the chain going through the holes locks the nut on the bolt. Everything is taken apart and can be examained.

Now, the magician threads the bolt through the nut aligning it with the hole in the bolt near the end of the bolt and passes the chain through the nut threaded on the bolt in the same manner as the spectator did. Now for the miracle penetration! The magician starts threading the bolt through the nut, until the nut is aligned with the other hole near the head of the bolt! An unbelievable illusion! Thereafter, the magician removes the chain from the nut and bolt, and can hand over everything to a spectator for close inspection. No clue to the mystery can be found.

If you like mechanical metal effects, for your show, or your collection, here is a clever precision engineered prop in brass for you. Supplied in a handsome carry case, with complete instructions.
