Re: Parts for Microtome
A quick fix for your problem is to use a rubber wedge, these are sold in
hardware stores (at least in Oz) for the purposes of keeping doors open.
Alternatively, you could make a wedge from a suitably sized pencil eraser.
The eraser idea might be better, its softer so it will jam the wheel in
position without causing stresses that might upset the bearings.
