I certainly do agree.  That is why some techs now prefer to cut standing up.

		Why do you suppose that those of us who spent many hours,
days, and years 
		cutting on the old black AO microtomes did not, and do not,
seem to have the 
		carpal tunnel syndrome that is so prevalent now?  Do some of
you other "old 
		timers" also agree with this.  I know that that sat much
lower and were more 
		comfortable to use than some of the newer microtomes, which
require that you 
		elevate your arms more.  That may be some food for thought
in this for some 
		of the current designers.
