I used an even cheaper version of the aligner.  My microtome service
engineer suggested an "L level" or a "T" level that you can buy at Home
Depot.  The L looks just like an L, it is actually a right angle measuring
device, used to make sure the corners or something are straight at 90

You take the knife holder out and place one side of the L on the knife
holder place and the other against the block face.
