RE: [Histonet] Leica microtome

You need to get it serviced.  We have ours serviced once a year.  We have a
2145 and after 8 years we had to put a new motor in, but it might be
something as simple as the lever that holds the plate on top of the
disposable knife.  We have had to replace that twice.

We are seeking advice.  Our Leica 2125 RM microtome has been 
functioning well until it suddenly started cutting thick thin sections.  
We have tried to align it, etc and it still is not functioning properly. =20
The block face looks smooth, but it will cut several slices toward one 
side, then on the next pass it cuts off a potato chip slice.  Any
suggestions would be appreciated.  Franci Tryka
