|From:||"Timothy R. Wheelock" |
I am in the market for a microtome.
I have tested 3 fully automated machines and 3 manual machines.
The electric microtomes are the Richard Allan Microm HM 355 S, the
Shandon Finesse ME, and the Leica RM 2155.
I did reference checks on all 3 electric machines.
I eliminated the manual machines (by the same 3 companies) mainly
because I found their flywheels much harder to turn than my present 30
year old AO820!
I am leaning toward 1 of the electric microtomes, but thought I would
ask people's opinion.
One of the many issues i am concerned about is durability, workmanship,
whether a machine is solidly built.
Thanks for your time,
