ridinbend That torch idea sounds smart. Imagine it helps bonding a lot. Thanks. I have a cheese greater dry wall tool for bigger holes but doesn't benefit the long stingy fixes.

wrathfuldeity I sharpen up a wood chisle...polish sharp...and shave it off flush...almost and fill in the rest with wax.

I also use a little bottle propane torch to soften the edges of the wound and then immediately flow in the ptex. Then let it cool a bit but still abit warm and then shave with the wood chisle....then wax as usual. Idk if that is right...but has worked so far for me.

Board repair

So I do all my own waxing and ptex minor stuff but this week at bachy my base got chewed to bits by volcanic shark teeth. I'm having trouble with a clean cut of my ptex fixes. Anybody have any good techniques for cutting the ptex flush? When I use a blade it tends to pull a bit up. Yeah it will fill with wax but only to a certain degree. Cheers.
