Waxing Iron

What irons do you guys recommend and use? I would prefer if it is under $50.
Thanks in advance, Connor

Personally, I use a clothing iron and just wrap the bottom with tinfoil. Toy with the temperature and it works perfectly.

Thanks everyone I'm going to go with the Swix FX Iron. Also on amazon I saw this scotch brite pads: Amazon.com: Scotch-Brite 00048011040288 7448 6x9 Light Grey 3m Scotch-Brite Hand Pads: Home Improvement Is the type of pad I should use to buff my board or is there some other "special" scotch brite pads I'm supposed to use? Also should I use a nylon and horsehair brush with a sintered base? Or do you only use those with a structured base?

This was what I bought from REI. It was about $1.50 for the pad.

dude! that's a great idea! why didn't I think of that! i've been using a clothing iron since i started waxing cause it was only $5 at a local used item shop..wanted to save up for a fancy iron to get the even heat distribution (mine has holes for steam) but I'll give this a try first!
