This could be added to one of those silly entertainments you do when out with friends. A good bar trick.

I think that the wax that you use to stick candles into candlestick holders would work best for this.


Make a spool of thee coins of different sizes, a dollar, a ten-cent piece and a half dollar. Stick them together with a little piece of wax as shown in A and B.

By placing this spool on the edge of a knife (lower illustration) you have solved the problem.

The dollar will roll up and down the knife to the great amusement of the audience.
