Bteddy, in this day of E-commerce, you can have all the ski tuning equipment the day after you order it on line.
All you really need is an old steam iron that has a working temperature comtrol and a smooth base. Steam holes or not, it doesn't matter. Holeless is only better because it is cleaner (less wax drips over the work bench). Get a simple wax set such as Toko System 3 in yellow, red and green. Keep away from the flouro issue for now, since that is way too expensive and technical to pursue.
My travel kit is quite small, and fits in a small bag. Iron, waxes, vices, extension cord, tool box with files and guides, scrapers, p-tex, brake retainers, etc., and then I have an inexpensive folding work table made with folding conference table legs and 2 layers of 3/4 inch plywood 4'x12". Back in my youth, it was too cold to wax outside, and there was no underground, so we waxed in the kitchen of a condo. We used a bed sheet to protect the floor, but the wax buildup on the table...... I advise to find a suitable place to wax and scrape.
