Hi Sarah,

I agree, Mr. Hammond does a great job.  His father was excellent with
microtomes too, but he retired.  In my case, no money is available for
preventative care, I had to bring them in to fix things for me.  I brought an
old sliding microtome (AO model 860) out of retirement.  It went from
useless to very useful and still working fine 6-7 yrs later. I also have
an old AO microtome knife sharpener that wasn't working well at all that
now runs fine. Both items needed parts, so it wasn't just a lube job
(which I know can still be a task if the machine hasn't been treated
