|speedjason||more often times less is more. make sure the iron is just hot enough and work the wax into the board instead of piling on the surface.|

Yeah, just wanted to see what you guys thought about the idea. I figured all I would be doing was just "caking" on more wax, but wanted to see if anyone had any reason that would be more beneficial.
I have base prep wax that I use when I do a deep clean about every 20-30 times of snowboarding. Then follow up with an all purpose wax.

I would not waste the wax on repeated layers.
What I would recommend is if you have the time and so desire is; wax your deck, let it cool completely ( over an hour ) and then take the iron to her for a second time using the same wax. This will help ensure you have soaked the deck completely. Remember, anything more than the thickness of a piece of paper is a waste of wax.
Total coverage using less wax = less money spent
Metal Scraper: Lots of guys use them. Have yet to hear of any adverse affect on a board. Just be careful as one slip could cause a nice gouge. Round off the corners of the metal scraper to avoid such issues.

|jjz||What the guy above me said... Scraping off one layer of wax is hard enough.|

Just makes the process of scraping more difficult being theres more to take off, no real benefit at all
As far as scrapers go, Ive used a metal one several times especially with my cold temp wax, just be smart with it

Any point to applying several layers of wax (Before scraping)
Wanted to do a deep soak on my board, I've done several layers of wax before, where I applied the wax, scrapped, then repeat.
But was wondering what some of your guy's thoughts on just applying layers of wax before scrapping? Is there any point?
Also, sidebar question. I heard metal scrapers were a big no-no, but read on here some people recommending them? Your guy's thoughts.
