Re: [Histonet] AO 820 microtome questions

Dear Dr. Ze Lu,
      The American Optical Co. that first made the "820" Microtome in 1947,
is now part of Leica. I have to guess you have a 820 that has a hinged lid
and the original integrated disposable blade holder. If this is true, let
me know and I can E mail a copy of the manual. Except for the locking lever
kit, I am afraid parts are no longer available.

Dear Histonet Friends,

We just bought a used AO 820 microtome and wondered  if anyone out there
an "Instruction Manual 820".  If so, would it be possible to email it in
pdf file? Also for this microtome, it came with a disposable blade holder.
It seemed that the sectioning angle is fixed. Anybody knew how to change
the angle?
