Leitz Rotary Microtome

#1 Post by houstontx » Tue Sep 08, 2020 8:13 pm

Hi all,

Does anyone have a manual or experience with the following Leitz microtome found on ebay here:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ernst-Leitz-We ... 2394925769

I have the cryo version for use with CO2. Here are some pics from the ebay listing, I'm very interested in the purpose of the small spring/silver hemispherical bar contraption which sits below the specimen mount/above black knob handle.

Also looking for suitable blades (don't have measurement as of yet).

Thanks,
