Hi all,

A second-hand Leica/Jung Polycut M microtome has been offered to me, for...
well... euch...  let's say ... a price I can afford.

It's a sliding type of microtome, and it should be capable of cutting very
large specimens (200 x 250 mm) in a thickness range of 1-275 m... (I think
the 1 m is more some kind of theoretical limit).

It's a very heavy machine, it weights euh... about a ton I think... (didn't
try to lift it as I had back surgery some months ago).

Anyone has any experience with this monster?

BTW: and this has nothing to do with the above: saw last night a
Reichert/Jung tissue processor on Ebay (Item # 63830183). Sold "as is",
price at that time was US$ 50...

Yvan Lindekens.
