i know it must be annoying as hell to be asked something that was already on the forum, but dont worry i didnt find the internet yesterday =D
i read that post, all 6 pages ><
and i was looking for more specific instructions like what kind of wax, manufacturer, fluoro/hydrocarbon, and like tools i need (minimum) to get a good result. also i saw videos(forgot the post but ill find it) of how to do it and NOT mess up.
so basically i was kinda getting obsessive about if im taking care of my board, ill put some pics up and tell me if im abusing the baby.
i lol'd at killclimbz board =D
also, i read multiple times that a regular iron is prone to mess up your board. the inconsistency of temperature seemed to wreck havok on some ppl, i remember the figure:
regular irons have +/- 40-50degrees of your intended temp while
those for snowboard waxing exclusively have a +/- 4-5degree range
im a senior in highschool w/o a job currently so im kinda strapped for cash, i read that blocks of wax are cheaper than pastes but i dont wanna spend more than 50 on an iron, around 30 would be nice but thats pushing it when you think about quality.
also, do i absolutely need any of those vices and grinding stones and other stones and shit that i see lists of? or can i just use wax,iron,scraper and be good to go?
btw does anyone know if i have a sintered or extruded base? and how i find out?
i enjoy speed and carving(which im getting better at), so do i really need to get a specific kind or wax a certain way?
yeah, thanks for replying to my long ass post, i got too much time schools boring ><
