There are little springs located behind the knife holder plate . If one of these is lost then it can cause the twisting that you describe. This happened to me years ago when stripping and cleaning one of our Leica 2035 microtome's. Hope this helps.

Subject: [Histonet] Microtome Problems
I'm new to the group and histo. (3 years) so far I'm getting a lot of useful tips from all the messages. Thank you.
I have two microtomes that were working almost perfectly before I had a technician service them. Now, the Leica 2035 Jung biocuts' blade holder is twisting to the side (going up at one end). I have tried tightening, slacking, and cleaning the entire assembly to no avail. Does anyone know of where I might be able to source one or even how to fix the one I have.
Secondly, the Leitz 1512 rotary microtome, is now jumping forward and giving a loud clanking noise. It takes huge chunks out of the tissue.
Any and all help is appreciated,
