Hi Mike,

we use a cheap domestic iron (set on delicates), standing in a shallow 
collecting dish.

[Histonet] Need Some Heat!

Hi to all of those out in Histoland...

I was hoping to get some help.  I have an employee who is suffering from 
tendonitis, and she feels that scraping blocks before trimming is adding 
to her injury.  I know that there is some sort of device "out there" that 
uses heat to melt the excess wax from the outside of the block so that it 
will fit into the microtome chuck.  Does anyone know of a type of heat 
block or hot knife that could accomplish this?  I am looking for something 
that will collect the melted wax so that we don't have a huge mess to 
clean up after a day's work.

Thanks for your time,

Mike Cupello.
