tonicusa They mean running it over a belt waxer which larger shops will have as versus a traditional iron wax and scrape. You get what you pay for.

Huh. I have no idea what the difference is. It's been a long time since I paid somebody to wax my board. I thought a hand wax would be a rub on and buff.

You save money? If you don't hot wax, the wax will not stay on your board. Hot waxing is hand waxing. Do you mean rub on?

I also use a cheapo. Just don't leave the iron sitting on one spot. Feel the top (as in the top sheet) of the deck as you iron and don't let it get hot to the touch. Also a hot wax first will help remove any impurities. A hot wax is waxing and then scraping while the wax is still warm.

tonicusa You do this:
1.) Buy the yellow wax for normal winter temps. The wax tells you what temperature to set the iron at.

2.) You buy the iron as its heating up to 115 degrees you start to drip your wax evenly around the board.

3.) Once the iron is at full temp you melt it evenly everywhere in broad strokes.

4.) Then you slowly iron strips tip to tail not letting the iron sit still in one place.

5.) Let the board sit overnight.

6.) Buy a scraper and scrape all that wax off with the scraper.

7.) Take a nylon bristle brush and brush out the fine hard to see wax. Use a rag to wipe messy scrapings and brushings as you go .

8.) Shred for 3-6 days and do it all over again
