A faster, easier, but more expensive alternative is to use a Buehler Isomet
Low Speed Saw. The blade is actually a diamond grinding wheel which allows
thin, controlled cuts without the danger of cutting the operator. I use mine
quite often. I have the original small model which works fine for my use,
but there are now several versions with many whistles and bells.
