I have an 1850 and have had none of these concerns.   Ours has worked
well for us.

We had nothing but "chatter" trouble and other cutting concerns with a
new Leica 1850 at the facility we used to work at.  They even had the
rep from Germany in and ended up giving us a new cryostat, same model.
We still had periodic problems with it and have been told that the new
knife holder design for this cryostat has some design flaws!  So, we
went back to an older model knife holder and that kept our cutting
concerns to a minimum..still not perfect!  At the facility I work at
now, they purchased the same model and we have the same problems, mostly
with skin specimens. The tech who works on this cryostat is very good
from a local company and he has given us an older knife holder for this
one, too, and recently found another internal problem that he is
ordering parts for.  I can let you know exactly what that is when he
comes back to fix it.

It is a nice cryostat, but it bothers me why there are so many cutting
concerns with this model???
