[Histonet] question

From:"gayle brosnanwatters"

Dear Listers,

            I don't know if this is an appropriate question, so please
forgive me if it is not.  I have decided to retire from academia at the
end of the school year.  I am a psychology professor, but I have been
doing research in a small way, and you folks have been an enormous help
several times.  About 6 years ago I ended up owning a brand new Leica
sliding microtome - I believe the model is the SM2000R.  (It was a fluke
- a retiring colleague shipped his old freezing microtome to me, the
shipper dropped it, it was insured for full value, so I got this for
"free."  I have the receipt).  I know that it is identical to the one
they sell today for about 10K, which is what I paid for it.  I did not
buy the extra freezing part, but used it with an attachment that let me
use dry ice for frozen sectioning.  Anyway, I would like to sell it.
Can anyone tell me where I could go to do so?  It was only used about 10
times, as I ended up using my old ultramicrotome for all the work I've
done.  Someone told me that I should expect to get no less than 5K, and
because it is in such good condition, and it is identical to the new
ones, maybe up to 7.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

            Again, I hope this is an appropriate question.    I'd
appreciate any help you can give me.
