Hello Nancy!
What type of plastic blocks are you wanting to cut? May I also ask what type of specimens are contained within the blocks. Without much information on what specifically you are working with you are looking at needing diamond knives, tungsten-carbide knives, or diamond impregnated wire, band saw blades, or disc wheels.
