Magician's DIY Tips and Tricks by Chris Wasshuber

This is a collection of money saving tips and tricks for the magician. I have been raised with a DIY attitude. Over the decades I have collected tips and tricks to make an expensive dealer item for a few dollars, or to replace something with a cheap item from the hardware store. If you are not afraid to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty, then you will find a lot of useful tips in this ebook.

With contributions by Jack Poulter, Wilhelm Eberhard, Chuck Smith, Bruce Kalver, Jeff Stone, Robert Kaldy-Karo and Scott Xavier. This PDF will be updated periodically as I discover new tips and tricks. Every customer will get access to all future updated editions.
