 Yes you can use disposables on a base sledge provided the 
holder is wide enough to reach the posts. When disposables first 
replaced the solid knives they came complete with holders ( a bit 
like the solid knife itself) which simply clamped into the microtome 
knife holder whether rotory or sledge. I am sure there are plenty of 
these around.
