1512 Leitz Microtomes

From:"Weems, Joyce" <JWEEMS@sjha.org>

I have news for those of you who love these old workhorses and would like
repairs instead of replacement microtomes! Klaus Dern, my friend and
microtome service man for many years, can make parts that are no longer
available for this instrument! I was chatting with him about this and
volunteered to tell the Histo world only as a service to you. He can
completely refurbish the 1512s. He formerly worked at Ernst Leitz Wetzlar
G.mb.H. in Germany, and just does wonders with these machines. 

This recommendation comes from me - only as a friend of Klaus and as a lover
of these old microtomes. I can still sometimes sit down in front of our new
Leica and reach for the knob in the front! Old habits die hard. :>)

If anyone is interested, please email me privately for phone no. and
