These saws are typically heavy-duty bench-mounted, powered instruments with an electric motor; a mechanism to drive the blade; a flat, detachable, circular, toothed blade; a variety of sample holders; and an electric cable. Rotary electric laboratory saws are used to cut bone (including teeth), either in original form or embedded in resin, usually to prepare thin sample sections.
