Cutting Cow leg bone with modern tools
« on: December 08, 2009, 07:26:36 pm »
I would like to cut out some arrow points out of a large cow bone. What is the best method of cutting them out?  Can I use hand saw?   Thanks,   Paul

 If you have to pull the trigger, is it really archery?

And if you're married and using a portable electric tool to cut bone, do it outside. Your wife won't love the smell and incense won't cover it.

Last time I sanded bone in the house with a Dremel (man, I just sanded a touch--not much!!), I lit some incense to cover the smell. The wife wasn't THAT upset, but she didn't buy the story that I found some "Copal, Cedar, And Deer Bone Incense" sticks.
