i have a travel iron that i got from goodwill for like $4. it's about the same size as an iron made for waxing, and barely has any holes in it at all. it works perfectly. i really think buying a $40 iron is a waste of money.

someone asked about where you can buy the brushes snowy was talkin about, and i don't remember reading an answer. they have a plethora of brushes at home depot.

for the brushes do you need two differents ones? like one hard bristled for texturing, and one soft for polishing? also i thought that the soft brush for polishing is covered by the scothbrite pads or is it different?

I use a wire brush to clean all the crud out before waxing, a plastic one for texturing, and a green scotchbrite pad for polishing.

My experience and what I do in snowboarding is really quite
independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

Ok so i just purchased my kit...i decided to go with this one

Amazon.com: Dakine Super Tune Kit 110v: Sports & Outdoors

i figured that since i don't have any snowboarding tools to begin with that this kit has most of the basic tools i need to get started. i got my buddy to donate his board to me for my first waxing HAHA! it honestly doesn't seem like rocket science and i like to do most things myself regardless. I think its a good investment and a good skill to learn.

I've never given any thought to waxing my own boards but I am hoping to get a lot more time on snow this year, and I could use an excuse to clean out the garage...

How do you hold the board down during the scraping process? I don't plan on buying a vise bench... Just take the bindings off and invert the board on some old towels?

Due to size contraints of my place I normally go into the bathroom and put the nose in the bathtube (cushioned by old towels) and hold the tail with my hand and scrape. Then flip it around and scrape the other side. All of the wax shavenings are conveniently left in the tub for easy clean up.
