I am resending this because yesterday's message did not post to Histonet.

Dear N. Kenneison (and other interested parties)

    Those "Tissue Tampers" are still available in the same two sizes:  the
smaller one is approximately 12.5mm square and the larger approximately 18.8mm
square.   Sakura,US part numbers are #1551 for the larger and #1552 for the
smaller size. Available through Allegiance, VWR and Government Scientific
    In the U.K they are available through Bayer Diagnostics.   Identify them as
Embedding Console or TEC  accessories (sorry I do not have the part number that
Bayer uses, but they will know the items once you describe them.) 

Bayer plc
Bayer House
Strawberry Hill
Berkshire RG14 1JA

I hope this is helpful.
