Karasene Yeah, I didn't think the ones with holes would work either till a saw a friend using one no problem. Like he said.. just never add water.

Again, watch your temp.

C.B. Yeah i feel ya, when i bought my new board i was just thinking "Ah i'll keep it in the wraping untill i get the bindings"

Dontcha know 20 minutes later i found myself with a stick of wax in one hand, and the neighbor girls iron in the other.

IdahoFreshies i use an iron with holes around the edges, i just drained out the water and make sure its not too hot and it works just fine. like they said, just keep it moving and don't let it sit in one place. Also since we are talking about waxing a board make sure you loosen your binding hardware from the base so the board so it does not cause adverse warping.

ski/snowboard specific irons are really not that much money. $30-$40 is well worth the ease of mind, perfect temperature ranges for waxing boards, small and compact, solid-flat base etc....

SBE just put some thick aluminum foil over it, it should be fine.

yea the only problem with a regular iron is that its a lot easier to damage your board so be careful about how hot you set it. if the wax starts smoking you should turn it down a little.

you should also try and stay away from the steam irons with holes in it if you can and get one thats smooth on the bottom

SBE just dont turn it on to hot and dont iron your shirt with it! the point is a good dripping point for the wax!
