[Histonet] Need Some Heat!

Many years ago Technicon made an "electric paraffin knife", which actually
looked more like a little hatchet than a knife.  I found one in a box of
"junk" that someone was throwing out about fifteen years ago, had our
electrical department rewire it, and I've been using it ever since.  It's a
very valuable laboratory tool, and I always wondered why no other company
started making such a device once Technicon stopped.  Sounds like the Para
Trimmer is the answer to that question.  I frequently embed large paraffin
blocks, using a variety of little boxes, plastic jars, etc. as embedding
molds, and the paraffin knife trims and shapes such blocks very efficiently.
