Re: [Histonet] AO 820 microtome questions

From:Gayle Callis

This microtome is such an old model, I don't think you will be able to get
a pdf file manual.  Leica Microsystems might have one sitting around in
little booklet form.  The disposable blade holder is for high profile
blades only, and you cannot adjust the angle, however this preset angle was
always good when we used it here, you don't need to fiddle with changing,
it will work.

It seemed that the sectioning angle is fixed. Anybody knew how to change
the angle?
