Magic, adultery, and a circular saw

To a disturbed young man, the magician looks like
the devil and she looks like an angel

The Sorcerer's Apprentice from Alfred Hitchcock Presents, 1962, was written by Robert Bloch, who wrote Psycho. This episode was only broadcast after the series became syndicated because Revlon, the original sponsor, thought it "too gruesome." It's tame for today, but like many of Hitchcock's tales, it has a strong moral message: deception can kill.

    Circular saws are often required to do heavy work, like cutting 1 1/2-inch thick framing lumber along the grain, or slicing 3/4-inch thick plywood. If you feel the need to own a circular saw, then be sure you get one that has the power to do all the usual construction site work.
