 I may be getting some metal stents to process and cut. I am open to
all ideas on cutting these. I know that paraffin is out. I did GMA a
long, long time ago and I know there are alot more plastic mediums on
the market since then. Any favorite plastic embedding mediums? Regarding
cutting, two methods have been  suggested,  cutting on a microtome
equipped with a tungsten carbide knife or using a circular diamond saw
that cuts thick sections. This diamond saw method I have zero experience
with, and any information on this technique would be helpful. I
understand that this saw is very,very expensive and after some
consideration may be ruled out as an option but any thoughts would be
 Thanks in advance to all.
