I have been a tech for just over eight years.  I now have to wear cock-up
wrist splints every night, and my grip strength has diminished
significantly.  I had a fully automatic Shandon Finesse ME microtome for
almost a year, and it was great.  I am trying to avoid surgery, but it is
just a matter of time until my hands will no longer be useful.
