RE: [Histonet] paraffin scraper

From:"Malcolm McCallum"

I don't know about one that is sold for histology, but most aquarium stores sell these.  I can imagine that they would work just as well for scrapng paraffin as they do for scraping algae off of the glass.  Maybe better!

Subject: [Histonet] paraffin scraper

Hello everyone,

I am looking to purchase a very long handled paraffin scraper that you attach a razor blade at the end.  This is so I can stand and scrape instead of squatting and using a putty knife.  I checked the Fisher and VWR catalogs and was unsucessful.  I have called at least two Home Depot stores and they don't sell them either.  Can you direct me to some company or place where I can buy this ?

I will appreciate your assistance.
