Readers may have noticed that my sign-off is: Too many 'projects'

This makes reference both to my collection of equipment, and to my personality.

I have now acquired yet another 'project' ... A microtome, by Cambridge Scientific Instruments Limited, to Horace Darwin's patented design:

With the notable exception that mine is a somewhat distressed 'basket case' it is, I believe, identical to this pristine example:

Unfortunately the all-important indexing ratchet wheel on mine is quite severely damaged, and I will need to make a replacement, if it is ever to be more than a curiosity for display.

Does anyone have experience of this early version of the Cambridge 'rocker' ?
