Default Abrasive pad

Do you guys think this would scratch the base of my board after scraping the wax off?

Heavy Duty Scour Pad

I bought some of those exact ones and they feel very rough against my skin, almost like sandpaper. I am worried that it will scratch my base and ruin it.

I don't know about the heavy duty ones, but I use the normal ones. They are fine. They seem rough, but I think they are used to make little trenches in the wax for snow and water to run through the board easier. Could be wrong though.

that will work just fine. its just to remove wax left behind by the scraper. i use some that are just as abrasive as those and never had any trouble.

Sweet thanks. I will open these up and start then lol. Wax has been sitting on my board for like three hours because I've been trying to figure out whether or not I should use them. Thanks.

oh ok. I like to cork it too. If you have one try it out sometime. I guess you're not supposed to do both, but I do. It doesn't hurt it.

What does corking do? Just another polishing step?
