I send mine out to IMEB in California. You may be able to sell the blades on Ebay.

Thank you,

Subject: [Histonet] Microtome Cleaning Company and What to do with Old Metal Blades

Can anyone suggest a good company that works on old microtomes?  Ours is not broken, it's just in need of some TLC.  Also, what is a reasonable price for such work (we have a RJ 2040)?

Also, we have a lot of the old metal blades that you have to sharpen.  Any suggestions on how to sell, donate, recycle such items?  Do people even use these anymore?  I would hate to have them thrown out.
