This is one of our best items, – a close-up effect that looks and works like real magic, right under their nose, or even in their own hands.
The performer displays a nut and bolt, which can be thoroughly examined by the audience. This is placed isolated on the close-up case, and the bolt visibly un-threads off the nut. The effect is most uncanny. The spectator may himself pick up the nut and bolt off the case, and examine them. The effect can be repeated as often as you like. You can even work it in reverse, having the bolt thread into the nut instead of threading out.
This does not use any of the traditional methods – no strings, springs, rubber bands, wires or pulls. Although gimmicked, the nut and bolt will stand the most rigid scrutiny, as there is nothing attached to the nut or bolt.
