Hank Lee's Magic Factory 38 AND DOWN Sales Event - Act Quickly!

Greetings from all of us here at Hank Lee’s Magic Factory

This has been a really eventful week. Did you see the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics. One of the most incredible productions I have ever seen. It was simply riveting. Everything a grand production should be, even Her Majesty jumping out of a helicopter and parachuting into the stadium. Huge WOW factor!

At the end of last week, all of the back orders for Spider Pen Pros went out the door. I would love to know what you think of yours. Drop us an email when you have a moment.

Are you a magic poster aficionado? Well, this could be your lucky day. Turns out I have a nice little pile of original lithographs that I could be talked into parting with. Here’s a sample: Thurston Whispering Imps (One Sheet), Maro Cards (Set of Three), Carter Beats The Devil Window Card, Carter World’s Weird Wonderful Wizard Window Card, Carter Priestess Of Delphi (Three Sheet), Doug Henning Magic Show (Two Sheet), some very early Le Grand David posters and several more. If this kind of magical memorabilia appeals to you, get in touch with me by email at

(1) Flying Carpet: A small platform, on casters, is rolled to any spot on the floor or stage. On it is a beautifully designed two-fold screen holding up a prop carpet.
A person weighing up to about 140 pounds is placed on the carpet with their legs crossed.
Then, two chrome swords are placed on the platform to further support the carpet.
Next, the screen is pulled out from under the carpet, off the platform, and onto the floor.
Then, the swords are removed! They are waved under, over, and around the carpet. The person on the carpet is suspended in mid-air!
Wave your hand and the carpet slowly revolves; all four sides are seen.
A hoop is passed over the floater and carpet to show that no visible means of support exists.
The screen is placed back under the carpet, and the subject gets down.
Here is a beautiful suspension that can be worked anytime and anywhere.
What a great photo if you use the birthday-kid! Use anyone from the audience -- anyone up to 140 pounds. The whole outfit packs flat and weighs only 40 pounds! Comes complete with everything but the hoop.
$650.00 (60.156)

(2) Elite Series Close-Up Table: The Elite Series Tables are 100% handcrafted, custom made from hand selected hardwoods and materials to best complement each other. Never mass produced! The builder has taken their 20 some years in furniture making and turned it towards making one of a kind magic equipment. Each table has its own characteristics that you will not find on any other table. They hand select hardwoods with that special character so the table will make people turn their heads and take notice!

Small Elite: 17" wide by 23" deep.
Large Elite: 27" wide by 21" deep.

Maple with the elegant natural color and either red or black fabric.
Mahogany with the signature red color wood and either red or black fabric.

This is a table that will stand the test of time, virtually no maintenance and a lifetime of great looks! Each Elite Table comes with card and coin holdouts. The top fabric can be steamed (home steamer) to freshen it up for your next show; the top fabric is also waterproof so if you spill something on the fabric it will not soak into the substrate.
When you need a table to perform on, select one that will turn heads, select the Elite Series!
Small size: $200.00 (10.1720)
Large Size: $250.00 (10.1721)

(3) TKO 2.0 – Jeff Kaylor: They have the questions. Do you have the answers?
Is it in your other hand?
Can you do that again?
Can you use my coin?
Yeah, but can I shuffle the deck?
Can you use my deck?

TKO 2.0 is the answer to all of these questions and more. TKO 2.0 is a utility device that works with any button-up shirt. It allows you to perform all of the clean and visual vanishes of the original TKO while adding the killer card techniques made possible by the Ultimate Card Control Utility (UCCU). The UCCU-and now, TKO 2.0, allows you to secretly yet flawlessly maintain control over one or more cards while the spectator shuffles the deck. The cards can then be produced from the deck or found in an impossible location, such as an envelope that has been in plain sight the entire time.
The Improvements:
All new 50-minute DVD with voice-over instructions.
This package includes both a black and white TKO 2.0 so that you will be prepared for any colored shirt.
The setup is now quicker and easier with the included custom pre-threaded sewing kit.

The construction of the utility is more durable and works better with larger coins.
It is designed to work with both tucked-in and un-tucked button-up shirts.
There are two built-in retrievals, one for tucked-in shirts and one for un-tucked shirts.
For un-tucked shirts, there is also a built-in "plinko" system that allows you to vanish coins one after the other while reducing the "clink."
The Ultimate Card Control Utility is built into the design.
New coin techniques, included a multiple-coin vanish and a one-handed coin vanish.
New card techniques and applications.
Six new routines!
Coin Matrix
Ring on Headphones
Mirage Coin

(7) Stolen Cards – Lennert Green: This is one of Lennart Green's favorite effects.
Show the audience a special deck of cards. Every card has a different back. Tell the spectators that each card was stolen from a different poker game, a souvenir of a winning night.
Take two of the cards and place them face-down on the table. The spectator chooses two more cards. The first surprise is that the two chosen cards match your predictions. The second surprise is that not only do the faces match, so do the backs. The third surprise is a real kicker. Every other card in the deck is identical except for the two cards chosen by the spectator.
The Stolen Cards comes with a special deck, instructional DVD and is completely self-working.
$35.00 (30.1713)
Note: This is a non-discountable item.

(8) The Bumblebees – Woody Aragon: An Award Winning Routine!
This is the comedy card routine that helped Woody Aragón win first prize at the International Day of Magic in London, 2011.
The Bumblebees are printed on the cards. Four bumblebees travel, one at a time, from one packet to another in the most mysterious fashion.
Trick concludes with a smash finale as all four bumblebees end up squashed!
Comes complete with special cards, instructional DVD and recording of Rimsky Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebees," the music that Woody Aragón uses in his performance.
$35.00 (30.1712)
Note: This is a non-discountable item.

(9) Invisible Hand Fire From Everywhere: This accessory was specially manufactured to be used with the Invisible Hand by Vernet. It allows you to magically produce and vanish fire in your hands. You can also turn the fire to silks, balls and cards anytime in your show, showing your hands absolutely empty before and after the effects.
Available in both left and right hand versions. Please specify
$50.00 (60.1864)

(10) Psychic Hero – Devin Knight: Have you ever done a headline prediction and had someone say, "If you knew that was going to happen, then why didn't you try to stop it?"
Now you can apparently change the future and save lives, by stopping things you have foreseen!
This is a proven method that Devin Knight has used. It is the same method that caused an audience to give him a two-minute standing ovation for saving a person's life.
The effect is tied in with any headline prediction you are doing for publicity. The press is there to cover your prediction. However, a prediction turns out to be wrong. You then proved that the prediction was wrong, because you changed the future, and as a result, saved a man's life! You offer infallible proof that you changed the future. Proof that will stand up to the most ardent investigations by skeptical reporters. Proof that can result in fantastic publicity, proclaiming you to be a psychic hero.
It is well worth the effort it takes to pull off this amazing stunt, because this publicity stunt can result in talk show appearances on both local radio and television stations. The amount of favorable publicity this stunt will generate is priceless. It is one of the most unusual publicity stunts ever devised and was endorsed by Al Mann.
In this publication, Devin gives you all the details you need to know in order to duplicate his stunt. With the information in this release, you can become a psychic hero in the public's eye. No pipe-dreams, but a real-world workable method that has withstood the test of time.
$12.00 (40.843)

(11) Perfect World – Mago Migues: Mago Migue's rendition of the Paul Curry’s Out Of This World takes it into new territory. Four spectators shuffle a deck of cards and, without looking at the faces, try to guess which are the black cards and which are the red.
It sounds impossible, but when the packets of cards are turned over the incredible has happened.
The spectators have separated all the red cards from all the black cards.
A brand new approach to this sensational effect. The deck is genuinely shuffled by the spectators. No sleight of hand. None of the usual switching of packets or marker cards. The handling is super clean and the routine plays big. Use it in close up or for a larger audience. Comes complete with a special deck of cards that the audience can freely handle and yet makes the trick possible. You can even use it for other card tricks.
$35.00 (30.1714)
Note: This is a non-discountable item.

(12) Puzzle Card – Woody Aragon: A self-working prediction routine from the ingenious mind of Woody Aragón.
A packet of cards is shown, made up of quarters of various jumbo cards.
The quarters are shuffled and laid out on the table.
The spectator selects four of them under the fairest of conditions.
Amazingly all four pieces are make up one single card.
A second surprise comes when it is seen that this puzzle card matches a card the spectator selected just moments earlier.
The method is clever and the handling is easy.
Complete with quartered jumbo cards instructional DVD and special deck.
$35.00 (30.1715)
Note: This is a non-discountable item.
