I agree.  The tape coverslipper was faster and more of a workhorse than
the Sakura glass model.  But, the pathologists prefer glass and the
slides look better when you have to go back to them.  Our Sakura glass
coverslipper works well some days, and is problematic on others.  It
takes time to get to know the quirks and causes, and sometimes the
position of the moon seems to affect it . . .

We have a Sakura glass coverslipper and are semi-happy with it. Some
days it works perfectly fine, on others anything but.
