The whole point of a forum is people who have the same interest come to a place to share and provide knowledge and experience. What is the point of this. You can easily start a thread or share your knowledge in this thread.

i didn't feel like reading all of the 25 pages of the guide, so i don't know if this came up or not, but i'm new to waxing and dont have a waxing iron so can i just use a regular iron? do the holes pose a problem? is there any way to be able to use it?

Regular irons work fine; however, after you use it to wax your board you will not want to iron clothes with it.
I suggest picking up a $7 iron from target or wal mart.

If any wax gets in the holes just keep the iron on after you iron your board and wipe it off good while hot with a dry cloth or paper towel. You'll never be able to tell u used it.

so will the old wax stuck in the holes burn after a while and just come out? or will it be a problem?

It will heat up melt and drip through the holes provided you have the holes pointing down.

Just out of curiosity, if you get it waxed at the shop do they do as good a job as you can do at home? ie - do they scrape the grooves into it at the end and stuff?

There are 3 local shops near me that hot wax. They all charge about $25. One just uses a machine and the wax is gone pretty quick. One does it by hand, but it's hit and miss. The last does a good job and does base grinds, etc.

I do as good a job as the good shop if not better (cuz it's my board!). I use them for complicated stuff.
