[Histonet] Microtome blades


Hi Everybody,

   I just wanted to thank every body for their input when I was having
serious problems getting decent paraffin ribbons when cutting on the
microtome. I tried like 5 different brands of high profile blades, tried
different angles, and concluded it had to be the knife holder or the block
holder. Called in the rep, and he was baffled. Finally he used my
co-worker's, blade holder and could cut beautifully. So now I have a new
knife holder and have switched to low profile Accu Edge blades, which cut
fabulously. Thanks for helping me trouble shoot.
