Yikes.  There is a lot of "play" getting that bubble in the middle of the "universal" aligner that may translate to large variations in alignment each time the thing is used.  The high cost is probably for the clamp, but if the bubble level is worth $1.50 the quality of the clamp doesn't matter.    

Save your money and use a blank paraffin block.

Can anyone provide any additional information regarding microtome aligners?
Do they work?  I have never used or seen this particular tool, so which brand works best?  I know of only one company that sells a microtome aligner (universal type).
Any information any one can provide will be most appreciated.
