stuff, the 1212 I use, on a daily basis, was bought in the late 1950's
and it's as good as new. Keep it clean, a wee bit of oil on the bearings
and it will last for ever. My base-sledge was made by the MSE company in
London as part of WWII reparations and again it's like new.

important but for research labs, well, the basic technology hasn't
changed so why stop using an instrument that produces perfect

I have a Leitz Wetzlar type 1212 rotary microtome. I have never
this model. A hospital in Lincoln City Oregon asked me if I could
microtome and I said yes. I had no idea it was this old. I
have been in
the field for over 25 years and I have never seen this model. Does
out there have any idea how old it might be?
