Re: Adjustable Workstations

From:"P. Emry"

After a bad surgery I found sitting at the counter on a high stool was not
possible.  I found 2 cabinets on wheels discarded by the dental school and
put the microtome on an angle sticking out over a corner and the
waterbath on the other..sticking out over a corner and they work great.
Looks silly, but I can get closer to the specimens and really see what is
going on on the waterbath.

I can move the tables around depending on what is comfortable at the time.
I move my chair(on wheels) back and forth or sorta crank the microtome
over my shoulder (said it looks silly) and grab a ribbon to float on the
waterbath.  If I have blocks that need icing or if they have to be on the
waterbath longer than usual, I turn completely around and fiddle with my
computer on my desk.  It's cool, really.
