I'm glad you feel the need to do what is needed!

Now you need to see my helmet!

Let me start by saying that I am not a purist. I only have my skis ground after I do big repairs which is so seldom that it's kind of weird to see structure on them. The way I look a it, I'm not skiing the WC, I live in the west and can still ski at highway speeds on what some here would consider an inferior tune so I don't see the point. Jacques, the metal scraper has always been a repair tool on my bench, but I will give it a try for wax. It can't hurt anything if you have a nice, clean edge on the scraper. If it sucks though, I'm telling everyone on Epic that you are just a lousy hack. :D

Shakin' in your boots, aren't you?

Nice!  I,m shakin'!  I have pointed out several times that I use un-sharpened steel to scrape wax.  I use sharp steel to shave a base back to a flatter condition or just remove old dried up base layers.  I'm happy to have not used a stone grind in many years now.  Thanks for the vote of confidence!  Be good and take care now.  You are a good guy.
