I would recommend the bone saw from MarMed which is in Ohio. They are
reasonably priced and the diamond saw will not cut fingers.  The bone dust
is very minimal because of the water that is in the pan of the saw.  I
purchased mine from  Columbia Diagnostics and the residents love it very
much.  It's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

	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
	butchers ban saw tends to throw head at a great speed when you loose
	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
	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
