This wax kit includes a 120 volt wax iron intended for use in the US and Canada, if you live elsewhere please see our 230 volt model.
This kit contains the basic tools you'll need to keep your skis waxed and ready in the comfort of your own home...well, the comfort of your garage/porch anyway, please don't wax in your house. We believe in the importance of waxing, and would love to see everybody waxing at least once in a while, so the kit is offered at a pretty good discount.
- Toko T8 Wax Iron (120volt)
- 120 grams of Toko Universal Wax (enough for about 6 applications)
- A six-inch Plexi Scraper (Tognar or Toko depending on stock)
- Rectangular white nylon brush
- Rectangular brass brush
- Rectangular horsehair.
- Waxing increases the glide of your skiis or board, this is the first thing that comes to mind and scares some folks off, but with that increase in glide comes an increase in control. A waxed base tends to glide more predictably than a non-waxed base, turns are initiated and released with less resistance, and you use less energy throughout the day.
- Waxing protects bases from the harsh abrasion encountered while sliding across the snow, especially in icy or man-made conditions.
- Waxing prevents bases from drying out in between ski trips.
- Brush base from tip to tail with the brass brush to remove any base oxidation, old wax or debris.
- Set your iron to the proper temperature (recommended melt temps are usually printed on the packaging).
- Hold the iron vertically and touch the bar of wax to the hot base, drip wax along the length of the base.
- Move the iron along the base melting and spreading the dripped-on wax (be sure there is wax between the base and the iron).
- Allow the wax to cool for about 30-minutes.
- Scrape cooled wax off the base, as much as you can (the important wax is deep in the pores of the base).
- Brush base from tip to tail with the white nylon brush removing any residual wax.
- Go skiing!

I wanted an upgraded iron (from a Toko Mouse), but the kit seemed to be a really good value. Both brushes work better than expected as the bristles are softer than my current brushes anddo a good job of cleaning and polishing.
The iron has good and bad points. Good is the heavier plate which seems to hold heat better. Indicator lights are helpful to know what the iron is doing in terms of whether it is at the set temperature or reheating. A poor design feature is that the temperature dial is hidden under tha handle, so you have to squint at it from the side to view the temp setting and to make adjustments. Otherwise, it does the job it is meant to do.
this is the kit i started waxing with and still use regularly.
i dont know if they still ship with a brass/nylon brush like mine did. what i did was take the brush and cut it half between the nylon section and the brass section because its hard to use just the nylon or the brass parts when theyre together
