Improving your Bench Microtome Page 4 The improved microtome in use
Just in case you missed the video example in part 1 of this project, I have provided it again here. Take a look
because it shows me cutting hand sections from a wax block using a plane iron on a modified Brunel Bench Microtome!
If you want to look at a higher quality video sample of
this (file-size approx 750Kbyes) - youcan click here!
We only need to learn now how to sharpen a plane iron to achieve a perfect cutting edge then we will be ready to
cut our first sections. If you have any questions so far, don't be shy of writing to me!
