Osborne Illusion Plans make building easy.
The Wakeling Sawing is a classic effect, now made easy to build with Osborne Illusion plans: It's not a flimsy illusion, but rather a prop that looks the part.
Alan Wakeling's creation, this prop is for the serious illusionist only! It's easy to build and, if performed properly, the impact on the audience is spectacular. But it must be performed properly. The lady is placed on the table. A neck shackle and ankle shackle are locked on to her with ropes running down and out the bottom of the table. Two spectators hold the ropes that keep her immobile on the table. Two ordinary ungimmicked boxes are shown and placed over her, completely covering her. The magician passes blades through the boxes, cutting her in half yet, when the doors in the boxes are opened, she is still reclining in the boxes. Finally, two blades cut her in half and the boxes are separated. Throughout it all the spectators hold the ropes tight, keeping her secured to the table. This is a presentation illusion and should only be presented by a performer with a commanding stage presence. All items used can be examined and the selected audience members are not stooges. This is a real fooler and unlike any other sawing plan we offer. The plans are easy to understand. We give you all the details from the simple construction to performance tips. This illusion can be performed surrounded.
The plans themselves are a work of art and would make a welcome addition to any workbench or library. Three pages plus instructions.
