Carolyn,    Try Klaus Dern, MicroPrecision Co. 706-635-8840. He is located in North Georgia. He has been keeping our Leitz 1512s well tuned and working perfectly for nearly 30 years. I know he works on a lot of different microtomes and microscopes, and he is very good, on time, and reasonably priced. I am not positive he does 820s, but it wouldn't surprise me if he did. If he doesn't he will know someone who does. You may have to leave a message. He is his only employee. 

And tell him "Barbara from FSIS in Athens" says, "Hi, see you in May or June for our yearly checkup!"

Hello Everyone,

I have refurbished an old AO 860 sliding microtome. I¹m pretty proud of
myself, I¹ve unlocked the totally gummed mechanism and have put it together
myself. It seems to work very well. The only problem I have is tuning the
sliding block. I have no idea how to approach it, and after several failed
attempts (I can get it to slide down the length, but can¹t achieve a smooth
movement), I¹m wondering if it¹s better to find a repairman in the area that
can spend an hour showing me how to do this.

Does anyone have suggestions? Do you know of any repairmen in the area?
