Get a real iron, a scraper and a bristle or blue nylon brush. also steal one of those green fibertex pads out of the kitchen and thats all you need to get started.
also this thread is money for tuning/waxing http://www.newschoolers.com/ns/forums/readthread/thread_id/455931/
Okay this may actually be a big help...
I have an iron i got for christmass recently and started doing my own skis. I noticed the wax they sell is very expensive and may not always be worth it.
So i went to a local shop and asked what they use in the shop and if i could buy some. The guy came out with a huge brick of east coast specific wax (cold hard pack) and i got it for 20 dollars.
give it a shot homie!
what kind of wax was it?
