I've been waxing my skis for a couple of years now and getting more exact about it every year. Now I'm brushing out surface first w/brass brush, then hot-waxing, scraping, and finally brushing w/nylon. Using universal wax for the moment. I think I'm fairly good, but I'm still not perfect.
So...question: I see subtle waves, irregularities in the wax after I polish. It's not on the surface; it's under the smooth surface, although I can sometimes feel them if I try. I sometimes re-scrape and polish, but I don't seem to be able to get rid of all of them. Is this right? Am I putting on too much wax? Not scraping enough? I'm always nervous about damaging bases, so I scrape, but not vociferously.
Personally, I think I might be overwaxing, but I also think that if so, it's better than underwaxing and the extra will wear off after a while ...is that right?
