Victorian Add a Number
Out of stock
Sold Out, Collectors Item! Not making more
A sealed envelope which contains a prediction is sitting in plain sight. You then pull out a small writing pad and ask a spectator to jot down a three-digit number. He then gives the pad to someone else who, in turn, writes down a three-digit number. After a third person from the audience has done this, you take the pad and pass it on to a fourth person on the other side of the room. You ask him to add up the three sets of numbers that were chosen at random. To the astonishment of your audience the sum of those three sets of numbers is equal to the number that you predicted, written on a piece of paper sealed in the envelope in full view all the time.
This wonderful utility prop looks like something you would see on a Doctor or lawyers desk but it’s specially made to switch numbers, letters words, etc. Completely self-working.
This ingenious prop is entirely made from scratch, this is not a modified desk pad.
Solid walnut, with stainless steel ball chain.

GREAT JOB Dave!! The Victorian Add A Number is an excellent version of the classic Switching Pad!
The price is fantastic for such a beautiful prop!
I have several of your pieces and am always amazed at your mechanisms as well as the superb woodwork.
Good luck with this new release. I am sure it will be a quick sell out!

This is just what fits into the style of those using "old" props they claim to have found on the attick of their grandfather’s house after he passed away. The only things I will have to have redone is:
– a supposedly Victorian item CANNOT have stainless steel parts. To fool any sofisticated
spectator I will have to have these parts brass plated or exchanged with brass parts you
fortunately can esily get on the net.
– Queen Victoria was dead for half a century before ball point pens had finally developed
into an usable item, so I will attach the MI 1066 Polished Brass Ring Top Pencil (1920)
offered for 10 $ on the net
But this is necessary only for those who perform for an audience that is well versed in history. For the everage magician this is not an issue.

This is an awesome prop. I hadn’t done shows in quite some time due to an injury. The reaction I got when a spectator opened the envelope and the numbers matched was incredible. Not only is it a beautiful prop it is as slick as James Bond. I will be adding more of Dave’s pieces to the collection in the future.
