I just ditched my old cheap wax iron for a Toko T14. I think a digital wax iron with a thick base makes all the difference in the world. The old iron would not hold a constant temp (thin base plate, porr thermostat), was hard to get the right temp, and took forever to get the wax evenly melted.
I also strongly suggest waxing paper. Cut the amount of scrapping by more than half.
