Linda,

Spurrs is not easy to handle, and I found it unbelievably nasty for large
bones.  How large are the bones?  I have a protocol for Spurrs, but to do
grinding of any sort, they used respirators, etc.  It is also very expensive.

I know of only two people who had success with this stuff, in Canada, when
I played with it, more inclined to cry or worse!  They did all sectioning with
diamond cutoff blades, as Spurrs was brittle, plus hard to get good
infiltration then a decent polymerization, unbelievable patience was needed.
