So, I am buying an iron this week and will be doing it myself from now on.
It sucks to learn valuable lessons the hard way. Lol! As for how hard it is to dent a heel cup, I'd say they slammed it pretty good. I know I'm not nice on my equipment, but I've never dented the heel cup on my union Flites, and believe me, there are time where I thought for sure I should have. Also, my waxing iron came from Goodwill. I think I paid a dollar for it. Don't overthink it, it's just wax.

wrathfuldeity really waxing and scrapping takes 5-10 min max, at $4 a pound for canning wax and a $2 travel iron from the thrift store....= more lap dances and beer money. At my age, going 40-50 mph blasting groomers, I do not need to waste my time to get a shop wax to go faster.

jdmccright Waxing a board is like cleaning a gun. Sure someone else can do it but I trust myself way more. Oh and I use a dollar store iron.

I just waxed one of my boards for the very first time the other day! (...only reason I tried was now that I got two decks, I can't afford $15-$20 bucks a pop for ea.!!! (gotta admit,.. even tho I thought I did a crappy job. Board really flew last night!!)
