So I've inherited an American Optical 860 sliding microtome. I consider
this quite a find since it is my all time favorite for slicing fixed brains.
However, it has been packed away for quite a while and seems to be a bit
gummed up and is in parts. Does anyone have suggestions on how to get this
back into working order. I don't suppose there is a manual floating around?
Any general suggestions for degreasing to remove the stick points. How
about a location for spare parts, particularly dry ice stages and maybe a
disposable blade holder?
Any and all suggestions are appreciated.
