     You can find lapidary saws on the website "" or 
     call 1-520-763-3311 for information.  We use the 6 inch "HI-Tech Trim 
     Saw" featured in their lapidary saws and supplies-trim saws section.  
     A smaller version is also available.  We use it to trim rat and larger 
     animal bones down to a thickness of 2-4mm.  This is a "wet saw" which 
     uses water to cool and lubricate the blade during cutting.  If your 
     budget is limited these saws are inexpensive and have worked well for

     How about a jeweler's or fine lapidary saw? Some of these have blades 
     with very fine teeth, or diamond-coated wire. These can make fine, 
     controlled cuts in both soft and hard stones, so mouse bone should be 
     no trouble.
