We have used the IMEB band saw for years and love the results.  It has a similar footprint and will cut through anything, including a steel pin.  It also has a diamond blade and optional water cooling.  It does seem a little awkward to clean, and I wish the protective housing was a little better.  If our IMEB failed, I would certainly take a long hard look at the Exakt 302 because it seems to address some of the cons of the IMEB.  I don't know about cost comparison.  Best of luck.

Subject: [Histonet] Looking for Bone/Pathology saw recommendations

Hello and Happy Friday!
I work in an arthritis research lab and we are looking into pathology saws like the Exakt 302. We study lumbar spine and knees. During our tissue harvesting procedure we take slabs of each vertebral disc unit, facet joints, and knee osteochondral samples. Does anyone have experience in cutting bone specimens with a saw like this? Do you have any recommendations on the brand you prefer?
