John Gaughan's and Wellington are both very nice. I think Bill Smith might make one also.

The key to this is the presentation. Pacing is very important.

Are you talking about the wakeling/selbit... or selbit sawing... becase the selbit sawing if you remeber wasn't separated. the Horace Golding sawing was the first to be separated.

Hey Don,

I have one that we started to build that I'd be willing to sell you. I can send you photos of it to date if you'd like. It's made out of Quarter Sawn Oak (high quality), which looks wonderful. The table is complete and laminated with black formica, the swords are complete, the boxes are done with the doors cut, but you'll need door hardware. We even have the aluminum legs. Everything is there except the leather strapping. It's a nice piece that I decided not to pursue for my show. If you'd like it and want to make me an offer for it, it's yours. Let me know.

-Bill

There are plans for the Wakling/Selbit sawing in Jim Steinmeyers book "The Magic of Alan Wakling." I believe the book is out of print, hoever, it is well worth the investment if you find a copy.

There are a lot of great things in that book. It's well worth the money! I am in the middle of building the Spirits Return illusion and it is working out great. I am also going to be using a variation of the Flitter Girl idea.

The Donster,

What part of the world do you live in? If it's near Los Angeles, I would be willing to share some innovative improvements that were made to the detachment mechanism of the Wakling/Selbit.

Do not go where the path may lead, but go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
