I want to thank everyone that responded to my query regarding parts for my 

I called Belair Instruments and spoke to Barry (technician).  not ONLY is 
he over-nighting me the parts... he is doing it free of charge.  he spent a 
significant amount of time with me troublshooting.  he truly went above AND 

I would also like to say that my previous posts shouldn't reflect poorly on 
the instrument.  it is a fine machine.  this is a clear case of operator 
error.  (i wasn't the operator... i merely FOLLOWED the operator and sobbed 
uncontrollably INTO the cryo-chamber!).

i would also like to thank Don (repair technician) from Leica who gave me a 
good idea for a "bandaid fix" until i got the part.  i'm off to the 
hardware store to buy some non-hardening gasket sealant.  (apparently 
CLEANING the threaded part was a bad thing.  it just goes against my 
histo-ocd nature to NOT clean something that isn't working!)  i learned 
today. :)

histonette is a great resource!  on that note... does ANYONE have a used 
shandon GLX linistain... cheap!?

happy holidays!
