bobepfd yeah, just plug it in and touch some wax to it then. As long as your wax isn't smoking u should be ok. I picked up my wax iron at a garage sale for one dollar. I think it's from the 70's or something but it works just as good as those fifty dollar irons as far as I'm concerned.

bobepfd most irons have a way to control the temp on them. you want it to be hot enough to melt the wax fairly easily but not smoke. If the wax is smoking when you touch it to the iron it is too hot.

hotsauceaddict Feel the topside of your board, and it should get slightly lukewarm as you spread the wax around with the iron. If the top of your board feels lukewarm, and your wax isn't smoking, you're bang on.

Iron for Waxing...

So I was looking around my house for a spare iron and I managed to find a perfect iron for the job. However I'm worried it may be too hot, the info on it says: 120V~ 50/60 Hz., 120W if anyone knows what that means. Is the temperature fine for waxing or will the wax smoke?
