RE: [Histonet] Bone Saw

From:"Ford Royer"

Someone mentioned that you may have to have a way to control bone dust if
you went the route of getting a band saw from a local home improvement
center.  I do not know if it would work, but Craftsman (Sears) sells a
portable dust collector...

This has a blower, collection bag, and a long 4" diameter hose with a large
dust hood.  The blower assembly is mounted on casters and can be moved
around easily. ($130.00) The collection bag has a 30 micron mesh size, so I
do not know if that would pass inspection by your infection control
committee or not.  All I know is that it works great in my basement workshop
while making wooden toys for my two grandsons' Christmas presents!  ;-)

    ...And NO I do not work for or represent Sears Craftsman, or do I
receive any form of compensation from them... They do, however, know me by
name when I go in there! ;-)

It never ceases to amaze me at the wonderful replies that come from 
Histonet.  I looked at the Cabelas butchers saw and it is a gem!!!  Best 
bone saw deal I've seen lately!!!   Boneheads will be happy with this one!!!
