[Histonet] cement in bone specimen

We sliced a humerus bone on a band saw which was filled with cement from
a previous surgery and my boss would like me to try to cut it on a
sliding/sledge microtome.  (The knife remains stationary)  Is this
possible to do?  Presently, it is fixing and then I will decal it but
I'm wondering if I'll be wasting my time and effort.  


I would appreciate anyone's experience with this.


Thank you.
