Dear Richard,

MarMed Bone saw is superb.  Will not cut you if your fingers are in the way 
and touch the blade/saw, plus it shields you from aerosol, debris, etc and 
not terribly pricey.    Countertop setup, so it is NOT a gigantic monster 
to deal with and can be cleaned easily.  I saw one at IMEB exhibit at 
Region 3 meeting and in a laboratory setting.

I found it here (a horrible website!)  under histology items.  You would need 
to call them for particulars, couldn't find a photo on their website.

A Histonet reply years back recommended a wild game processing Cabela's 
commercial butcher band saw, $599.99, Item # Item:IH-516404 from  It has washable parts although not shielded.

Good luck
