Hey all,

Are there any tricks on how to keep your fingers from getting frostbite
while doing cryostat sectioning for 8 hours a day?  My poor techs who have
been cutting frozen sections for several straight days now are starting to
complain about these inhumane conditions!  Do all of you MOHS techs have
bleeding, chapped hands and numb fingertips?

Thank you in advance for any suggestions and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
