Slydini taught me his Linking Pins Routine sometime in the late 1970's. For several Thanksgiving's, during that period of time, Slydini arranged for several of his students, including myself, to perform at the Windows on the World Restaurant, atop the World Trade Center in Manhattan. Slydini also 'table hopped' a bit himself on those occasions, and this is where I got to see him perform this routine for laymen. You will need two blanket pins, one of which has to be 'gimmicked'. I've seen these pins offered for sale from different Magic Shops, you could make them yourself if you are handy. This is a very brief routine, a magical interlude. The routine lasts for perhaps a minute or two at most. This routine teaches 'command', the use of the eyes and voice as misdirective tools. The situation is not unlike Cardini's in that the magic seems to be happening to the magician.
