We don't pin breasts, but we routinely pin segments of bowel, stomach etc. 
what we use is a piece of styrofoam, usually from packaging that comes into 
the lab. We just cut it to size, pin the specimen on it, put it in a 
"tupperware" style container and fill it up with formalin. This way when the 
pinning board (syrofoam) gets
dirty (a nice way of putting it) we merely through it out and get another 
piece, no money paid up front, so it works quite nicely.

good luck, Vern Hurst
