Re: Paraffin


Please post to list.  I just got a new Energy Beam microwave today and haven't even started to play with the timing and power for drying my slides.

Subject: Paraffin

We have used our microwave to melt paraffin from tissue speed up the turn around time for recuts.3-4 mins with a 700 watt...Our old microwave bit the dust. We have a new one 1000 watt..I have set the power to 70% and used the 3-4 min thing...No luck..Tried it at 3-4-5- mins..also at full power..I cant find a consistent setting...any advise! Its either fried or paraffin gloss.
