Hi All,

Just a little more information about anti-roll plates on Leica cryostats.

Regarding the anti-roll plate issue with having to adjust it all the time,
one might try replacing the yoke portion (including the black adjustment
knob). The new anti-roll plates have replaceable glass with 4 usable edges.
If the knob has become worn (I experienced this where I trained in
Charleston) the plate gets out of adjustment easily. The new yoke and glass
should be adaptable to an existing swing arm. Belair Instruments sells both
'swings to the left' and swings toward the user' varieties (cost is about
$175). An alternative is to replace the whole anti-roll plate apparatus with
a new one (cost is about $250). The black knob on the new ones is stiffer
and won't get out of adjustment as easily. If the glass edge is parallel to
the knife, correct adjustment is a point just barely behind when the plate
rubs on the face of the block so the rubbing stops (no noise on the up
swing). If anyone would like more direct help, give me a call.

Best Regards,
