Hi Karen -

Are yoru eferring to the boards that have the detachable mats?  I know they
still make them and the last one I heard of was through MOPEC.

I'm probably aging myself here, but we also used to make paraffin blocks
for large specimens and pin them flat for overnight fixation - it wasn't
pretty but it worked.

Hope this helps some.
