slicing acrylamide gels

The situation is this:
After labeling proteins with a radioactive photolabile probe, I seperate 
those proteins on a 7.5% gel (12x18cm, SDS-PAGE). But hereafter, I would 
like to cut my acrylamide gel in thin slices of about 2mm, because in this 
way I can identify the molecular weights of possible labeled proteins.

Does anybody know a nice gentle and especially reproducible way to cut a gel 
in pieces, or, does anybody know which companies sell holders for razor 
blades, designed for this purpose??

Any ideas or suggestions would be very appreciated.
