RE: processing paraffin

From:"Gladney, Diane C" <>

It may not be a paraffin problem after all. You may have a bad lot of
blades. This seems to be a problem lately for those of us who use disposable
blades. I suggest getting in touch with the manufacturer of the blades to
see if there have been any reports of "bad blades". Recently on the histonet
there appeared some discussion about this problem.
