    Both are needed, as Bob says.

    Unfortunately it isn't a RAL or similar 'coded' colour. The only supplier I've come across, so far, who make a match is Paragon Paints.

    I'm not sure that Sami has got it 100%. There's also a strong feeling that folks should realise that a hospital with a few tens of $M of equipment and staff or a general practitioner with a few $100k...

    It is possible to make a new cam which can restore some clamping force by removing the effects of wear. I don't think there is a simple way to modify individual tool homders to improve the clamping...

    We have one where the cutting wheel cuts into the side of the seam instead of the top of the lid. It's a brilliant idea. The lid and the body come apart with no sharp edges! Wasn't a major brand...
