Supplies for waxing new skis

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have been all over the board checking out advise on waxing new skis . There is alot of great info on this topic ( thanks to all ). I bought a wax iron and some new base prep wax . My question is this can you get the same bushes ( steel and nylon ) and the scotch brite pads at Home Depot or lowes that you get at the common ski tune shop. I am not to sure on what grade brite pad or the hardness of the two bushes i needs to hot
wax the new skis. Any help would be great , thanks

I contemplated the same thing and after much searching for a long time broke down and just bought all my brushes from Artechski; what was out there simply was not going to do as good a job and I did not want to risk damaging $1000 skis because I was trying to save $50. The scotch brite pads however I bought at Home Depot, medium fine grade, I campared it to the one offered by swix and it was the same.

grey for hard wax removal & general cleaning
(if you use base cleaner fluids, they work well together)

white for buffing and polishing & cleaning iron base after wax so no grit gets into the next wax job.
