Hot smear method saves wax also.

my All-temp wax that I use, doesn't drip on anyway

If in doubt, cold temp wax > all temp stuff.

Wait, this confuses me. I thought you were always supposed to scrape it good before riding it. I scrape until no more comes off before I brush. Am I scraping too much?

I ask this because once I took it to a shop when I still still a noob and had them do it and they left a thin layer of wax on it. I assumed that was wrong and finished their shoddy scrape job, but maybe I have it wrong?

Hotscrape refers to using molten wax in order to clean your base.

Yep I understand that but when he said he was going to scrape extra hard IN LIEU of a hotscrape I was just trying to understand what he meant. I didn't think you could over-scrape but the way I read it was that typically he didn't scrape all the wax off. His answer to my post cleared it up.

hmm, maybe i had 'hotscrape' wrong , i don't add any more wax to do it, not molten wax, i just slowly move the iron and scraper down, picking up all the melted wet wax that's on there....Words!suck! for explaining things, ha

I have a feeling this is about to turn into another general waxing technique thread, lol.
