wax: Usually Swix, in various temps
iron: An old 1940's era deal with a rotted cord that I try not to electrocute myself with. Been using it for two decades. Every wax is an adventure!
scraper: Sandvik woodworking scraper, someone's newer lexan scraper, and an enormous old Burton thing that I touch up once in a while
ptex: Still running with a fistful I scored 25 years ago...almost never needed.
file: Swix guided deal or Nicholson's as needed.
stone: Various diamond stones or random tool stones
brushes: Nylon bristled scrub brush usually and green scrubby pads

Probably fair to count hundreds of wax jobs with that "kit".

using hertel's bulk brick wax until it's gone, then I'm gonna switch to green wax (don't know how toxic regular wax really is, but I doubt the glide is that much better that it's worth the pollution)

found an old pocket whetstone in the kitchen drawer that does a quick job of sanding off edge burrs

maplus iron, edge file/sharpener and brushes

Just FYI, I used oneballjay's soy wax for a few days, and it really is that bad. I swear not waxing is just about as good as using that shit, it's like giving your snowboard that extra base grip you've always wanted.
