    Good general overview. But you don't explain the function of the different brushes, plastic scraper vs metal scraper, and why all the thickness of wax and then scrape it off.

    Or you could get them waxed every 3 years instead of spending hundreds on the tools you need

    Can you remove dried-on wax by reheating it with an iron, ie, not scraping it off while dry? Thanks!

    For some reason I want wax my own ski now. It just looks so satisfying but I don't really know if clamping down the ski + the heat is such an great idea

    Does anyone have an opinion on horse hair brushes? Is it a substitute for the nylon?

    NEVER USE A HOT IRON ON A CLAMPED SKI. Heat and the slight bend damages the structural integrity of the ski making it soft

    hot scrapes and uses base cleaner…. REMOVES ALL THE WAX AND SPEED FROM THE SKI PEOPLE. DOING THIS MEANS YOU HAVE TO START OVER AND PREP THE SKI AS IF IT WERE BRAND NEW

    As a racer/couch, I start with sharpening then brushing,wax, let cool, scrape, brush and complete. Once a week or ever second.

    What, no beer advertising? It just doesn't seem like an Outside® video without it. Can't the waxer just down a Coors Light® when he finishes?

    Mr. Myogi say "wax on" "wax off". This is the same method the Austrians use.
