We tried the Leica and Surgipath Motorized microtomes and the leica instrument is great. The Surgipath instrument seemed like a duct tape and chewing gum retrofit, and the mechanism was clumsy. I've seen that the quality at all levels of microtome leica sells is great. within the last year we've gotten 6 including one motorized and all the techs like them. 

Does anyone offer a tabletop cryostat? Hacker Bright used to sell one that was awful. I need one that works.
