When the limit of the feed reaches at the end, a safety device automatically disengages the feed mechanism to prevent jamming and avoid damage to the feed screws. The feed indicator is graduated in microns, is conveniently located in the front for instant references and its setting is controlled by a knurled knob at the back of the microtome. The sturdy knife holder, in addition to knife elevating and leveling provides lateral movement for complete use of knife edge. The angle, adjustable up to 30o, is indicated on a reference scale. The knife supplied with the Microtome is fabricated from high carbon fine grain tool steel which is heat-treated for proper temper & tested for Micro structures.
A lever is provided to lock counter balanced drive wheel and specimen block is stopped at the top of its excursion, providing ample clearance space for safety insert and removal of knife and block holders. A quick flip of the lever releases the drive wheel.
