Have you tried a standard drill with a home-made plexiglas bit ... put
tissue into a plexiglas block (with holes drilled slightly larger than the
bit) and then grind each for about 15 seconds with the drill ... we did
this for some much tougher grasses in the past, and it worked and was
really quick (slowest step was loading the tissue into the wells).
