To all-

We've been using Permount  in our Leica cover slipper, but we have noticed
that after a while, the Permount seems to get too thick and the machine
doesn't dispense enough on the slides even after cleaning out the nozzle. 
Previously I just switched out the "old" Permount (saving it for manual
cover slipping) for a new bottle, but has anyone tried to re-dilute it
with toluene and put it back into the machine?  If so, how do you do it?

Thanks so much,
Kathleen Roberts
