We use a Fleetwood (used by meat cutters) then have maintenance attach a plexi-glass shield.

Subject: [Histonet] bone saws?

I am wondering if anyone can share how they are cutting femoral heads, extremities for tumour, etc. We currently use a 20 yr + meat saw (band saw),  but would like to find something safer/newer.  We freeze all our bones (pre-fixation and pre-decalcification) prior to cutting.

 Vendors welcome to reply.

Thanks in advance
