[Histonet] Embedding multiple GI pieces on end in a paraffin block

I have techs that embed 10-15 pieces on end in one block. Just cool the
block slowly and move your pieces around quickly.

Subject: [Histonet] Embedding multiple GI pieces on end in a paraffin

Is there a way to do this without one or more pieces falling over?  I
saw in the archive the method for frozen sections-embed them on their
sides in OCT, then cut on the end, but I don't think I'd be able to do
that in paraffin.  Would one of the tissue microarray methods work?
(I've never done that before, so I have no idea.)

Thanks in advance for all your help,
