Tarzanman How hot to set your iron will depend on each individual iron. I have to set the wal-mart cheapy up to almost the highest setting in order for it to stay hot enough to heat up the board.

Qball 240 degree is good. I usually put mine right at 120 celsius, which is 248 fahrenheit.

you want to make the iron hot enough to melt the wax but not have it be smokey, thats usually the general rule. most times the wax will tell you what temp to set ur iron at

Agreed.
I went for the £7 option in my local Tesco as they were out of the £3 ones. This meant I got the upgraded steam version. The holes get as hot as the plate so any wax that gets in just melts straight out onto the board. As long as I don't accidentally fill the reservoir with water and accidentally switch the steam function on I think I'll be OK.

Tarzanman I use a $6 Walmart iron. It works just fine. The iron is so inexpensive that when I go on snowboard trips I pack my wax and just buy another iron at Walmart wherever I am going. The iron is probably the cheapest item I spend money on while at a resort town!
