Re: Re trimming round edge of cassette

From:Lilia Muolo

Hi, I have always used a small paint scraper and wrapped it in masking tape to make it comfortable to hold. I have seen some techs using a small blunted kitchen knife with the tip snapped off. Hope this helps.

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
