i have a fairly straightforward question... what are the required tools and how often should i wax?
from my research, the very basic tools are:
*Wax iron ( which to many is superior due to the steam holes in otherwise clothes iron...which is bad news for a stable temperature. however, i saw 'art of flight' movie and right at the first 5' the guy shows a normal cloth iron in his toolshop!! which poses the question that if this pro uses normal iron...why bother with holes or no holes etc!?!?!?)
*ok, the wax based on the temperature of snow u want to be in
* the scrapper
* a clean cloth to wipe off any wax (before?) or after
* a horsehair brush (?)
comment if these are the tools to perform a casual waxing at your home and i m on the right truck of going to buy them.
then, if all of the above are indeed required, do i need also:
* a base solution to first remove old wax (?!?!?!) is that right? or do i just apply on top the waxing?[ do i clean or not beforehand previous layer of wax?! ..every time?] ...and here goes another question, i went last year to a guy that repaired the side (abt 2-3cm) after contacting a 'rocky' part of the snow with a brake stance.. so a small part of the metal did not split in 2.. but it 'unglued' from the base and formed like a C shape... since the rock hit the base from the side and the 'wood' of the base forced the metal to 'bump' up a bit. luckily this expert guy fixed it and now it seems with little notice 'as new'.... my question is, since probably he used stuff like epox and maybe t-rex base repair strips.... will MY procedure for waxing change than a normal waxing? ie will i have to reply anything at that part of the base that was messed up? if i remove the layer of wax for applying a new one as i m talking abt now..will this staff need re-fixing/gluing or whatever? or do i just go ahead..use a solution to break old wax, clean base, apply hot wax on top, scrape it and i m fine?
* do i need any kind of diamond stone/etc for purely waxing?
