Sorry, we will probably try with Glycol methacrylate because I've used it 
many times and haven't tried Methyl Methacrylate.  But if someone thinks 
MMA will be more beneficial?  Or something else?
I was going to try a 90 (2-hydroxymethacrylate) to 10 (2-butoxyethanol) 
mix, instead of the normal 88-12 mix.  I am thinking of putting the bone 
straight into the promoted mix and skipping the infiltrating.  Just placing 
it all in the freezer overnight, then into the fridge the next day to 
polymerize.  Anyone have any ideas?
