I like the fact that there are<BR>three different ways to face the block- you can let the sensor do it for you<BR>and spin, you can use the coarse feed on the touch pad to position the block<BR>and then let her spin, which throws shavings around a bit, or you can<BR>position and advance the block with the coarse and fine feed and face the<BR>block rocking  up and down with either of the two manual knobs on either<BR>side of the microtome. I guess with the foot pedal that makes FOUR! But I'm<BR>not a foot pedal person. Still, Richard, ergonomically  you can vary your<BR>technique to minimized injury from repetition. Vinnie, I'll ask the Leica<BR>rep about problems/modifications when she visits this week to talk tissue<BR>processors. Its a little hard to clean too but really I have had no<BR>problems. Its pretty cool.<BR>Jeff Silverman<BR><BR><BR></DIV></BODY></HTML>
