RE: Re trimming round edge of cassette

I run it across my hot plate on the embedder or use a single edge razor
blade. Good job for a high school student!

Hi all,
Iam looking to see what techniques people use to remove the excess wax from
around the cassette after embedding and before trimming.We use at present a
blunted scalpel  but we have been told there may be a risk from needle stick
type injury.
Thanks to all in advance
