I'm sectioning a polymethacrylate resin and have observed that the sections
tend to spin/move rapidly on the water bath as they unfold.  I think that
this may be a surface tension effect, but I'm not sure - has anyone looked
into this phenomenon?  I plan to use add about 1% alcohol next time I
section to reduce the surface tension, but I'm concerned about the effect
of the alcohol on the resin - any thoughts or suggestions on this?
