	I am trying to find the best way to section vascular stents that
contain metal. I have the right resin (T8100 and T9100) , Tunsten carbide
blade, but not a automated microtome. Does anyone prefer using a precision
saw with a grinder polisher even thougth there is tremendous sample loss?

	My boss is ready to buy a $10,000 auto microtome unless I can
convince him otherwise that the saw/grinding/polisher is the way to go.

	thank you in advance for any suggestions.
