Wereceive a huge number of outside blocks and I adjust my block holderaccordingly, but others in the group say it's easier to re-embed alloutside blocks (Yikes!) and then have every microtome aligned the same.I was just wondering if these aligners work and if so perhaps it couldbe an alternative for those individuals that normally would ratherre-embed than realign.
