Wax Temp Question

I notice that my wax smokes when I have the iron sitting on the bench, but when I apply the iron to my base it doesn't smoke, and sometimes even sticks like it isn't hot enough. I have my iron at almost 140 celcius, but if I don't, it doesn't glide for shit. It hangs up in spots.

My question is, is it alright that the wax smokes on the iron, but doesn't smoke when I apply it to my base and begin waxing?

I dont set mine over 120.

I dont let it smoke, I know what you mean my hangs up in spots, but if you continue to move the iron from tip to tail over those spots. maybe a little slower, youll melt the wax that is sticking and it will glide.

if it smokes it's bad
if it wisps it's fine

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU
