Yes - for the last 27 years,  but never at 70C.  We have a dry air 
incubator set at 60C, just enough to melt the paraffin on sections.  This 
incubator is also used to melt paraffin in a metal beaker in case we need 
to top off our processor paraffins.   Drying time is usually 45 min or so 
for sections on well drained Plus charge slides, and drying of slides has 
been excellent.
