Syn.: section cutter. An apparatus for making thin sections of objects. Many kinds have been devised, some serving to hold the object and move it sufficiently for the successive sections, which are made by passing a knife along the guide by hand. In others both knife and object are held by the machine, and the powder may be applied by hand or by a special mechanism. Frequently the object must be moved sufficiently for the sections by turning a screw by hand; in other cases all the movements are automatic.
