Couple of ideas to make waxing easier. I have used the rub the wax on method instead of dripping makes scraping easier. If you are not sure of temperature for the wax check website or go to tognar.com they have some temps listed for different waxes, I wouldn't go above 140 degrees C (centigrade not fahrenheit) assuming you have a real wax iron with temps on it. When you scrape over edges you will get nicks from sharp edges on you plexiglass scraper, use sandpaper to smooth out. Nobody has talked about all the wax stuck on your scraper. I use goo gone from home depot to remove wax from scraper with paper towel cleans it right off. Not sure if you could use it on top sheet to clean wax that got on there. Afraid to use any chemicals, citrus or kerosene on either side of board but have used the base cleaners. Read tognar for cleaning, they suggest using a soft wax and scraping while hot, a few times. I have tried this and it does take a lot of junk off your base but its messy and a pain just like scraping is always a pain. Anyway my two cents.
