Mpjames 09 If you can afford it invest in a quality waxing iron , you can thank me later. A quality iron can last you for years and give you peace of mind. Check out a Toko T8. Good luck.

jdmccright Yep your iron does not work right but lucky for you snowboards are hard to mess up. Get a new iron dude.

Donutz If it wasn't hot enough to make you yank your hand away, you're probably ok. You don't just have a cheap iron, you have a broken one. I have a $6 iron from Value Village, but it works properly. Has steam holes too! I know exactly where to set it to wax the boards, and where to set it to wax the skis. And where the beer is.

I didnt know it turned off randomly and i thought i had the heat too low, so every time i kept cranking up the heat. All of the sudden i realized my board was getting pretty hot. I felt it, it was pretty hot but not hot enough for it to hurt my hand. Is my board ruined?? Like i was able to touch it and leave my hand on it...im curious if i messed up and ended up burning the pores of my board.

This is what i get for getting a cheap @!^& iron.
Is the base all bubbled up and fucked?

If not you're good.

Do a search here for some of the vids on waxing. A lot of info, you prob already know man...
