I just now waxed my board for the first time at home. I spread the wax over the whole board, but it took a while and the wax was pretty dry when I went to apply the iron to the board. I moved the iron over the wax spots continuously to melt it, but is this a potential hazard to "burn" the base?
At the end I touched the top sheet and it wasn't too hot, though a certain area below the front contact points was pretty hot, though not too hot to the touch.
I keep reading it is possible to seer the pores shut by heating them too much, so I'm just a bit tentative. The iron was about 120 degrees (248 F) and I made sure not to leave it in a single spot.
Anyway to tell if your board's pores are toast?
