Hi Jill,
	I used to embed piglet bones into LR White. I used plastic molds
(Polyscience Inc. Cat# 18646B) which I covered/sealed with SaranWrap to
prevent oxygen exposure. I polymerized the resin by UV light at -20C.
Bubbles of soft unpolymerized resin were sometimes a problem. I cut
sections on Jung microtome that is used for cutting non-decalcified bones.
I don't think you will be able to cut LR White with disposable blades. I
experimented also with Spurr's resin and found its polymerization to be
more reliable. If you need more detail, please, contact me,
