Dear Neil,
You could try to put a new edge on your IEC anti-roll plate by placing it
vertically onto a 1000 grit piece of wet & dry paper, placed onto a flat
surface. Move the anti-roll plate on its length, and make sure that you hold
it firmly to achieve a straight edge. This will renew the damaged area.

Another alternative is to purchase from:-

Hacker Instruments Inc.
17 Sherwood Lane
New Jersey 07004

Tel. (973) 226-8450 or 1-800-4-HACKER
Fax. (973) 808-8281

a Magna Plate Anti-Roll Plate, Part No. 50300-1, this will fit all cryostats
and is placed directly onto the knife or blade without requiring any setting
up, it does not need to use any of the positioning mechanism fitted to the
cryomicrotome microtome. Hacker Instruments  will also be able to supply a
disposable blade system too.

Best Regards
