Thanks a bunch for all the tips guys. I've ordered some all temp wax, and an edge tuner so I can do my own board. Kind of hate to use my own (only) deck as a guinea pig but what choice do I have if I want a fresh tune and wax.

As far as scrappers go can I use a metal one? I have plenty of drywall taping knives around, sizes ranging from 4" to 10".

I've got a household iron that I used maybe 2 times since I bought it 10 years ago. Is there really that much of a difference between a "real" wax iron and a household one?

What kind of prices do your local shops charge for a tune and wax? I think I paid around 30 to have mine done by the hippie dude in Downtown Breck last year, but wasn't scrapped (spring storage wax). Is there a difference in price if you want it done right away vs. drop off and pick up next day?
