This will be my first time waxing my snowboard and I've been reading a lot. I've read the stickies here, at Sierra Snowboard, YouTube- SnowWolf's, Sierra Snowboard, Franklin Crowe's videos and etc.
I have the Swix Economy Wax Kit. It comes with an iron, three different types of wax, nylon brush, fiberglass scraper.
After watching Snow Wolf's video, I bought a steel brush from Lowes. I'm not sure if it's too strong or not to the point where it damages my base. Here's an example of the bristles on the brush ..
Shur-Line at Lowe's: Premium Long Handle Wire Brush with Scraper
In Snow Wolf's video, he states that I should get a brass brush/horse hair brush. Unfortunately, hardware stores don't really have these, and if they do it's toothbrush sized, so my question is the bristle in the link adequate so that it won't damage my base? I believe that Snow Wolf said that the brush should be used to brush off the wax and helps take off the wax.
Another question is I'm looking for file guides, gummy stones, and diamond stones. Where can I get these? Online, cheapest? What about local retailers in the PNW, Washington state to be exact?
Thanks a lot!
