I purchased a used Hacker RCM-3660 glass coverslipper several years ago.  It was missing some parts and the nice people from Hacker supplied me with the needed parts.  This work horse has been running 7 days a week for the past several years and has never given us any problems.  Great machine and great people.

We use the Leica CV5030 the advantage of it is that it can be attached to their Auto stainer providing continuous workflow as rack and coverslip 30 slides per run, without the need to physically transfer slides rack between the autostainer and coverslipper or used as a stand alone coverslipper if needed, though at time it can be problematic.

For a start glass cover slip must be kept at 37 oC prior use otherwise they tend to stick to each others.
Also does not recognised all the slides type unless they are Leica one, or the coverlslipper as been calibrated to use a specific slides type.

In the past I used the Sakura Acetate film coverslipper, and their were no major problem with it though remounting section was a very tedious process.
