Dude, I live in Burlington, I wax, I sharpen, I repair. Not only my own, but my kid's and most of his buddy's. Yes, definitely do it, it's very cool. I bought a lot of stuff from Tognar Toolworks
, especially repair items like edge, ptex sheet, string and candle, ptex iron, and bulk wax (decade supply, at least). The Alpine Shop in South Burlington offers wax, tune and repair clinics, beginner and advanced, for free throughout the season. I went to one and it was very good. Get on their email list and you'll be notified. Also, go to the Burton Factory Annual Sale in August. I scored a vice, scrapers, stones and files there last year, very cheap. They also do demo tuning and repair clinics during the sale by the factory techs and although it's (shudder) snowboards, the skills are universal. You could also come over to my place and I'll show you how I do it. PM me.
