Re: [Histonet] Bone saws

From:"Ford Royer"

In my lab days, we used a Sears Craftsman bench top band saw that one of 
the P.A.s bought at a garage sale.  But then, that was in the old days 
when there was never any money to buy new equipment for the Histology 
Lab.  Times are different now.  Right?  ;-)   Never the less it worked 
great and was not difficult to disinfect.
