The RM2255 is a workhorse.  We have three of those and 3 RM2155s as an older model.   The 2255 is the best.  I had used the 2255 in the past to cut plastic with a tungsten carbide knife and it held up better than anything else available at the time.

Subject: [Histonet] Microtome feedback

Hello and TGIF to everyone.  I'm exploring getting a new microtome and would like to draw on the vast knowledge and experience out there in Histoland.  The three I'm looking at are:  the Zeiss Hyrax M55, Thermo Scientific ME+, and the Leica RM2255.
