Tea Kettle Project
Paul, i am vey thankful for all the effort and wonderful craftsmanship reflected in our 2 projects. Paul built me 2 magic kettles as used in the old days for the any drink called for type of act. I have collected and used several along the years. I do have a model based on the david devant tea kettle, but it was always my intention to have something unique and different from everything ever built. Paul, did just that. The marvelous esthetic elements are very proper of the piece Paul created, as it is the mechanical nature of both apparatus. Is a joy to see that a few of us, today, can still understand and work with the needed sensibility that performers so much need. It comes of no surprise to many of us the long experience Paul has had repairing and building our apparatus. It is as close to a gift as it can get, specially nowadays. I can only share my wonderful experience and great work that Paul Lembo developed for me. Have no doubt that, if a terrific work and great craftsmanship is what you aim for, you cane to the right door and you are with the best person for the job. Paul, my friend, I wish you all the best and hopefully we shall contact again soon for year another adventure.

TESTIMONIAL: THE ASCENDING BLOCK - When I discovered a broken down, painted over version of this piece of equipment from the 1940s, I asked around about who might be able to fix it, which led me to Paul. They don’t call him amazing for nothing! He carefully cracked open the unit, restored the mechanism, discovered the original paint colors inside the unit, studied old diagrams and advertisements, recreated the original decorations by cutting stencils and finishing it all to perfection. The result - a gorgeous piece of equipment, possibly the only one of its kind in the world. And Paul did it all for a very modest price. Thanks!

chop chop card rise
TESTIMONIAL: Once again, Paul, you took care of me. You took my Chop Chop card rise and fashioned an appropriate "remedy" in order to ensure that the effect worked flawlessly. As always, I appreciate your attention to the items I have had you worked on. They may not be as expensive and valuable as other items that you may receive, from others but you have always given my items the attention as if they were. Thank you again.

TESTIMONIAL: I just visited Paul Lembo today and it was a great experience. His hospitality to me was as if we have been friends for many years and yet it was the first time I have met Paul in person. He gave me a tour of his collection and workshop while sharing part of his knowledge and experience throughout the past years . Although I could only visit for a short time, hopefully I will be able to return and visit this Magic Icon in magic.

CARD RISE RESTORATION
TESTIMONIAL: Paul, you did it again. I had purchased a Sybil Card Rise from someone, but it did not have the necessary gimmick. Knowing that you are "the Go to Man", I asked you if you could make the gimmick. I knew the answer would be yes. Also, one of the glass pieces was broken and the other was cracked. You took care of my problems as usual. I now have a nice piece to display on my shelf. Paul always tells me, "Use it. That's what it is meant for." I think that's the only advice I have not listened to. Sometimes, things are too nice to use. Thanks again, Paul.
