This is a quick list for reference for setting up a cheap effective wax/ tune for private skis.
petex for gouges--- plastic 6 pack beer ring
wax--- get on sale use and remelt scrapings to use again
aprasion pad---get one that they sell for cleaning dishes
wax scraper--- any hard plastic item that is flat and wide enough to cover full width of ski(recomended but not needed)- such as a stiff plastic dust pan
file--- cheap file used to file metal
iron--- old iron with no steam holes- look at secondhand stores or garage sales
screw driver--- garage sales or second hand stores
I still sugest that you get skis/board tuned by a good reliable shop. Take into mind that it takes practice to get good at tuning, may have to redo tune multipletimes.
If there is anythng I missed feel free to post it.
Sounds about like my tune kit. Oh the joys of being in college. Linoleum countertop pieces work really well as wax scrapers too. You can make a cheap pozidriv screwdriver pretty easily by grinding down the tip of a phillips driver a little bit.
