[Histonet] Microtome blades jammed in dispensing box

From:"Orla Gallagher"

Dear Histonetters,

We've been having a problem over the past year or 2 with our 
microtome blades becoming jammed in the dispensing box after 
only a few have been used and wondered if this has happened to 
anyone else? Our refurbished building has a cooling system 
without humidity; would this cause the blades to become jammed? 
It's happened with Feather S35 & N35 blades and Accu Edge 
blades from different suppliers and in more than one lab in the 
building. Any advice on how to get the blades out would be much 

Many thanks,
