What kind of otoliths will they be processing?  We use a Hillquist thin section machine, Isomet high speed saw and a Southbay Tech low speed saw in our lab depending on the otoliths to be sectioned.

A colleague is seeking to equip his teaching lab with an otolith sectioning saw.  I'm most familiar with the Isomet Low Speed saw, but I understand there are other manufacturers out there.



Any suggestions/reviews about saws, their performance and reliability, and cost (especially important for a teaching lab with limited budget) would be greatly appreciated.  He's even interested in finding out if there's a marketplace for used saws.

Thanks.



Jon
