	I believe we have 7 Histo Collimators here and I've used one for
at least 5
	or 6 years and I couldn't go without it.  Using the Collimator,
I usually

	Does anyone out there have any experience with block alignment
	such as the Microtome Aligner from Newcomer or the Histo
Collimator?  We
	receive a huge number of outside blocks and I adjust my block
	accordingly, but others in the group say it's easier to re-embed
	outside blocks (Yikes!) and then have every microtome aligned
the same.
	I was just wondering if these aligners work and if so perhaps it
	be an alternative for those individuals that normally would
	re-embed than realign.
