Bill - I sent you a PM a few days ago about some coin stuff.

For those who are interested in Craig Ousterlings awesome Okito boxes, he has a site and a mailing list. https://primalgimcrack.com/

For those who don't want to search, the move can be found on page 30, of the May 2016 issue of Genii.

The Genii search feature was down over the weekend, but it's back up. The column is in the May 2016 issue, page 30.
I was trying to search that (and a few other things) and couldn't, so glad to hear that Genii search is back up. The Ousterling move is a great example of a real gem hidden in print. I thought it was one of the strongest moments of that routine on TV. It's actually pretty easy to do to. Craig had me doing in fairly effectively in about five minutes.

Just use the online search feature - it's in Kaona's column a couple of years ago and is the only result for "Craig Ousterling".

Which issue is it in?

I looked up the Craig Ousterling move...very clever! And easy.

Sinbad Max sells the routine (which includes an Okito box) for a very reasonable thirty bucks or so. It's awesome.

The last cool bit (sound of the coin slowly disappearing) was created by my friend Craig Ousterling and was actually taught in Genii some months back.

Just watched the last episode of Fool Us for the year...there's a magician I've never seen before, Sinbad Max, and he does an outstanding Okito Box routine.

Chris,

This routine does not match up to most of the routines listed.



But, starting Wednesday, if you bring your box to Florida you could get personal instruction from the creator. Plus it is really easy

Lovely routine Kent. I believe the Marlo Okito stuff is also in the Arcade Dreams book, which may be a lot easier to get hold of.

Chris,, "Okito Reversembly" is in an old issue of Magic Magazine. I assume you know about the index?

http://www.magicmagazine.com/x/search

Just go here and search on Chad Long. It's the first result that comes up. Then look it up on the Genii site.

Kent - That's another fun one!
Ah found it. Magic Magazine, Dec. 93. Will probably hold off on that as I don't want to deal with Boston type stuff until I can get a good start on the basics with a normal box first.

Looks good Kent. Not sure if I'll bring my Okito, which is a heavy little bastard, being stainless steel.

Curtis Kam explains his full Okito box routine on his latest Penguin Lecture.

Also, take a look at Chad Long's "Okito Reversembly" where he uses an Okito box in a Matrix-type routine. Very clever combo of moves and gaff.
Yeah, it's ten bucks at Vanishing Inc. Very fine routine, but I'll hold off until I get a matching Okito box for my Buddha Box.

I was going to say the same thing. I think you would probably accidentally hold back coins every once in a while if you used a slot box all the time.

Re: If I wanted to start learning a bit about Okito coin box work...

I would think that having a slot Okito box when you didn't need the slot feature might accidentally screw up your routine.

The routines I've read recently that have you switch boxes usually have you switch one type of box for another. For example, you would start with a regular Okito box, and then at some point switch in a Boston box. For a prop like this, I would stick with just the features you need for the routine.
