[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.
