I use a $7 iron from walmart. Works just fine, have never experienced smoking or anything - it doesn't have many holes, just a few around the top, but I don't think they make a difference anyway. Mine is set right on the line that separates wool and cotton.
Edit: Just realized this was an old thread brought back from the dead. Whoops.

I have literally just waxed my board with a normal clothing iron and it worked a treat! Start on a low temp (nylon/silk) and progressively move up to the wool mode and it should be absolutely fine. Just don't let the wax smoke!

I actually read an article in snowboarder magazine about using a heated up frying pan, as long as its smooth on the bottom.
I've used a clothes iron before. Try to get one without (or with less) holes. The travel one would be a good idea. Most important thing: KEEP IT MOVING. Just like with clothes, keeping it on the same spot too long is what can cause damage. (Even so, you shouldn't run into any problems)

Oh well, I already bought one recently anyway. Now to find a makeshift wax bench in my garage. I refuse to purchase vices and stuff. I just don't feel like I need to go that far lol.

|NWBoarder||I think that whoever started the myth that holes on irons for waxing are bad just wanted to sell more waxing irons. The holes have never caused any smoking for me at least, and really, they are a non-issue IMO.|
