Recently, one of our pathologist instructed us to buy a Scroll Saw so that we 
would be safer cutting femoral head. (Our current method; using a Large 
butchers ban saw tends to throw head at a great speed when you loose your 
grip.  Ouch!!  Not to mention the risk of loosing a digit ) The problem with 
the new saw, is that the blades for this saw are very thin 2-3mm and the 
sections are jagged, when we replaced the blades with a thicker blade (6-7mm) 
we are not able to adjust the tension tight enough to utilize it.  Also the 
biomed department thinks we will not find a blade that will work.  The Saw 
was ordered along with a variety of blades that range from metal cutting to 
softer material cutting blades.  The pathologist swears that a similar saw 
was used at Johns Hopkins, where he did his residency. Any help on ways to 
utilize this saw would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks
