Anyone have any experience or thoughts about re-ironing wax to save time and saturate ski bases? I do not have access to a hot box, but would like to be able to saturate my bases. I hear that hot boxing skis is equivalent to 20 - 30 hot wax cycles. I have seen the threads about building a hot box. I may eventually try that, but would like to try something easier first. I am not a fanatic (I think, but if I actually build a hot box this opinion may change) about waxing, I will be doing some racing (I have a lot more to improve with technique than wax), but I do prefer to keep my skis well tuned.
My skis have all been ground, had the edges set and been waxed with base prep. Normally I would brush - wax - scrape - brush - brush - brush a few times before the start of ski season and several more times throughout the season. This year I am thinking about trying something different. I can easily handle the hot waxing, but would love to minimize or avoid the brushing and scraping. If the bases are clean, I add a little new wax each time and I allow them to cool between each cycle is there any benefit or anything wrong with this approach? Also if this is OK any thoughts on a wax choice?
