As such it takes the industry standard Halls Hose, the same as the Surgairtome and the Halls range of saws and drills. It may come as a surprise to many users that the original Slocum Saw was a modified De Soutter product. As De Soutter distributors we are now pleased to be able to offer the original saw to existing and new users. Many of the original saws are still in use but are coming to the end of their life. It is now possible to replace like for like to minimise any change in the technique. Standard grub screws are 5mm using a 2.5hex drive which is prone to failure. Upgrading to 5mm cap screws requiring a 4mm T bar drive is much more robust. The blade hub rotates back and forth 6 degrees. As the blade diameter increases this 6 deg rees will move the teeth on the saw a greater distance. You will find, therefore, that the bigger blades cut more efficiently than the smaller ones. In addition, where the patient is small the tibia has a relatively low inertia and will therefore be moved back and forth by the blade further reducing the cutting efficiency. It is suggested that the tibia be supported by a sandbag to minimise this effect.
