Re: [Histonet] Reichert Jung Frigocut 2700 and disposable blades

From:Rita van Bendegem

Dear All,

We have a Reichert Jung Frigocut 2800 and a few years back I wanted to
convert  to a disposable blade holder.  At the time I call Leica (Canada)
and they told me it was not in stock anymore .  So then I called some used
lab equipment  places, but they couldn't find a  used holder.

What I did in the end was I ordered the  knife holder from Leica that fit
the Reichert Jung Frigocut 2800 locking system  the best.  Then I  had our
machine shop mill off a strip of metal from the bottom  of the knife holder
that didn't line up with the cryostat holding base.  I have had no problems
with the knife blade holder it works beautifully.
