Portable waxing stands

I need some portable waxing stands for my next trip.

They need to light weight and compact for flying.

I am thinking about getting the stands in the link below.

Does anyone have any better options?

If you don't have an issue with buying "burton stuff" their vises are plastic but very durable so it would help on weight for traveling & most importantly theres bottle openers integrated into each vise same pice as what you found as well.

Does the board slide all over the place as you scrape? I use to do that but every wax was turning into a workout.

I straddle it . It 's on the coffee table with yoga blocks with a painters cloth underneath. I also have a small pan and brush used for the scraps.

Kind of in the same boat...

Don't know where you are located, but you can check out the Swix portable at a REI. Think they are metal though.. I may buy the Voile's now chit.

I have had the Swix FX vises for a few years now. Easy to use and reliable. I wrap each vise in a plastic grocery bag and keep them in the original box. They still look like new.
