also, will i be able to learn enough by checking out youtube vids? oh, and what do i need to sharpen the edges?

thanks in advance!

picked up one similar to this (one ball jay brand from local shop) and it comes with everything that you need. I just watched some vids on youtube on how to do it. I use my garage, if you dont have a garage just use a piece of plastic or something to lay down on your floor so keep the wax in check when scraping. The more you do it the better you'll get
