SIMPLY THE BEST!
TURNING THE MAGIC WORLD RIGHT-SIDE UP!
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE?
The most obvious difference is the quality of the product. Quality is the main ingredient in Jim’s work ethics. Jim realizes that a product that meets the expectations of his customers will only generate new customers. Jim would rather spend the time and effort into making the coin boxes right, to the specifications of his individual customers, than to spend money on advertisement. Why not, his products speak for themselves! Just seeing one of his products at work is a thing of beauty, you will want to pick it up and feel for yourself.
He has studied the coin box and understands what it takes to make a classic prop. Having studied under one of the greatest coin men ever, Slydini; Jim knows just a few things about magic and what makes magic work.
His competitors will not refer to him because when put to the test their products just don’t match up. A sterling testimony to how good Jim’s products really are.
WHO USES THEM?
Anyone serious about their coin work! If you want names, here are some that I know that use Jim’s boxes:
Purchase a Jim “Zee” Coin Box and you have invested wisely in your magic. You will never need to buy another coin box for all classic items will weather the test of time – guaranteed!
The anatomy of a coin box is a mystery to most magicians. This explanation will help you make a far more educated purchase for your money. The first thing you will probably not get is a box that is all shiny looking. Brass tarnishes very quickly unless they were recently made and they will probably have a dull finish. There is one other way it will be shiny and that is if they are lacquered. “DON’T BUY A LACQUERED BOX”. When the box starts to get used the lacquer starts to chip and then the whole box looks worse than you can imagine.
The next thing you should look for is the wall thickness of both the box and the cover. Most boxes are made with walls so thin that the first time you drop it the side of the box or the cover will end up with a bend in it that will make it very difficult to use at best. Do not buy a box with thin walls unless you are going to put it on a shelf and admire it.
One more very important part to look for is how the cover fits on the box. If the cover fits too tight, then the “moves needed” to do successful routines will be hard, if not impossible, to do. Buy a box that the cover has room to move on so that routines can be accomplished in a professional manner.
The boxes produced by “Daytona Magic” have several distinct advantages. First: NO automatic machinery is used. All work is done on a box to box basis and by hand, assuring you of the ultimate in hand crafted boxes, at production prices. Another distinct advantage is that ALL corners are rounded off. YES, ALL corners, inside as well as outside – covers as well as boxes. This unique feature allows coins and cover to nest smoothly and not hang up on sharp edges.
This product is available in many different styles.
The 3 box set includes a Boston Box, an Okito Box, and a Slot Box and one lid.
All Jim Zee boxes will accommodate an expanded coin.
A Boston Box is similar is an Okito Box but it has an indentation that allows you to place a $1.00 Walking Liberty coin into it. The Walking Liberty coin is the largest coin produced by the U.S. mint. Many moves can be performed with a Boston Box that you can not do with an Okito Box.
An Okito Box looks like a Boston box but it has no indentation. You can use this box to make coins appear, vanish, change places and more.
A slot box has a small slot inside the box that allows the box to retain a singe coin. This gives you the ability to do a series of routines where you can instantly have access to another coin anytime you need it.
