    The bigger my quiver got, the more basic my tuning and waxing set up got.,, especially due to limited ski days thanks to career obligations When I only had two pairs of skis getting used 100 days a season, I spent quite a bit of time working on those two pairs of skis with a dedicated bench and tools all close at hand. Now that I have about 10 pairs of skis that share 5-10 ski days a year the upkeep is minimal with all tools packed away in a large tackle box and just throw some towels across the washer and dryer to touch up edges and lay on another coat or wax. Take then out to the porch and stand them up to scrape.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    For most of my maintenance waxes, to mitigate scrapings I changed waxing method to crayoning a wafer thin layer of wax, iron it in and just buff it smooth. No scrape.
    This works? Like waxin, hate scrapin. X2 on the wax box

    I've been crayoning the wax for years. This is what I get after a light scrape and brush. No reason to waste wax at all. And while we're on the subject, I maintain if you wax your skis regularly there is no need to leave a thick coat of wax on them all summer. All that does is attract dust and make a bigger mess when you have to remove it. Your bases won't oxidize if they are waxed, scraped, and brushed and your edges will not rust if you don't store them wet. A little rust or corrosion comes off easily with a gummi stone anyway.

    I boiled my thermometer, and sure enough, this spot, which purported to be two thousand feet higher than the locality of the hotel, turned out to be nine thousand feet LOWER. Thus the fact was clearly demonstrated that, ABOVE A CERTAIN POINT, THE HIGHER A POINT SEEMS TO BE, THE LOWER IT ACTUALLY IS. Our ascent itself was a great achievement, but this contribution to science was an inconceivably greater matter.

    Just put this together. Only thing I had to purchase was the pegboard. I had materials left over from finishing up my house and figured it would be a worthwhile project to have something functional.

    Liked the wax box ideas and had some scraps around. Easy to drop onto some saw horses, and can flip upside down to be a flat bench ie for ski mounting. The darker plywood Ďski vicesí I made 10+ years ago, the go in/out with a single wingnut, makes base tuning and edge tuning easy. Those are 188 Megawatts, so fit any length or width and still catch the wax. Thanks mag collective for the ideas.

    I have seen it, beyond what a Maggot can even appreciate. I found the experience similar to my first trip on Timothy Leary’s mind altering medications, a new level of consciousness.

    Nothing fancy, but does the trick! Not pictured: the TV in the corner for watching football and/or YouTube videos for how to wrench on my vehicles (highly recommended).Click image for larger version.

    Dude! That came out great - glad the old boards went to some good use instead of the landfill. If you're ever up in waterbury/Stowe you can deliver the beer (which I had mostly forgotten about, haha)
