Polycut microtomes

From:Darren Robinson <drobinson@ciit.org>

I have a microtome question for all you big specimen sectioners out 
there.  Has anybody ever used the Leica Polycut-S in a freezer before, and 
if so did you need to change the set up, i.e. did you replace the 
lubricating oils to account for the low temperatures.  I am thinking about 
trying to cut some large frozen specimens and would like to know whether or 
not I'm about to break an expensive piece of machinery.
