Default Where do you get your tuning and waxing tools?

I'm just wondering where is your go to place for all your waxing and tuning tool needs is. If you buy everything from your local shop or have a favorite website. I'm looking at websites, and it doesn't seem to have everything or is extremely expensive. I'm looking to buy everything from one or two websites to save money on shipping.

I'm talking about equipment for the whole shi'bang.
Waxing iron
plexi scraper
metal scraper
brass brush
nylon brush
horse hair brush
felt brush/block
wax? (well this I can get at any local shop at similar prices)

Edge tool
diamond stone
gummi stone
p-tex candles

What else do I need or don't need?

Edit: oh yeah, maybe add on a mini snowboard lock?

Anywhere? just browse and buy a kit. I got a nice kit off fleabay, seen some good deals on some apres xmas sales out there as well. Also, don;t buy in to purchasing expensive brand name irons and waxes, a cheap iron does the same damn thing, as long as it has temperature dial... and theres minor differences in waxes but unless youre a nub buying burton wax won't make you go faster

This place always has awesome prices on their stones and DMT files. They have always shipped quick. I do not work for them either!

My local ski shop had a sale on kits. Wax and tune kit came with everything except wax for about $60. Couldn't really beat it at the time.

If you have nothing, a buying a kit is a good place to start. I've accumulated my own ragtag tuning stuff over the years from local shops, the internet, flea markets, home centers, and grocery stores.
