    Solid

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    LIke a lot of people, I used a beat up clothes iron for many years. I wish that I had switched earlier. I checked the temperature setting on the TOKO with an IR thermometer I had the garage, and it was right on. The beveled edge makes navigating wax drops a lot quicker and smoother. It feels like a lot of money for a simple device, but it amounts to pennies per wax over the lifetime that this iron will last.

    Lay it on even

      After a decade of using a beat up old clothing iron I decided to pull the trigger on the real thing. I wax about twice a week and my old iron was on its way to becoming a fire hazard. The Toko was designed to wax boards unlike a clothing iron. Waxing is now more efficient, quicker and less wasteful.

      My First Iron

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      This is my first iron so I don't have a great point of comparison but nonetheless have been psyched with using it so far. It seems to be the best value option out there.

      Great Waxing Iron for Skis

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Toko T8 iron heats quickly and maintains a consistent temp across the thick base. Very easy to melt wax and drip on skis then smooth out. Run iron sideways with a good wax flow to cover base. Iron base is soft so be careful running up the steel edges - Let the iron move smoothly with wax spreading out through grooves onto skis. Very solid tool.

      Another tip: The front lip of the heat plate is beveled at 45 degrees for smooth glide on the 1st pass of the newly dripped wax. Using any other side of the heat plate will basically just get stuck on the wax drips until the ski & wax heat-up.

      Update Tip: Use a sheet of fiberlene under the iron for the final run and the wax will spread out even and smooth. This makes scraping easier and uses less wax overall. I cut sheets from the roll and use one sheet per ski.

      Gets 'er done

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      After years of using various Salvation Army irons, using the Toko T8 is like going to waxing heaven. It is light, heats up quickly, has excellent temperature controls and a nice flat base to smooth out the wax. The base also features grooves, which help direct the wax when you are first dripping it on.



      This is one of those products whose true value lies in its simplicity and dedication to a specific purpose - it won't press your work clothes, but it will make your skis/boards fast and slippery.

      Oh Yeah Baby

        Get one. I've used this iron for 3 years now, and mine has grooves at each corner as a wax guide for melting on the wax. I absolutely love the feature, and much prefer it to the other swix irons I've had to use. I use it for my alpine and nordic skis and it's worked excellently since day one. Easy temperature adjustment with temps written on the dial, red and green lights for "warming up" and "ready". Go Toko.

          This really is a great iron! Plenty of surface so it doesn't feel like you're trying to iron with a curling iron. The heat is extremely consistent and the base cleans of old wax very easily. This might seem like a small thing but I've had irons with the cord too close to the base and it seem to always be in the way. This is just in the right spot so you don't have to worry about the cord landing on hot wax! If this thing ever wears out I'll buy a new one for sure!

          Does anyone know if this is the 2012-2013 toko t8 model with the 15mm plate versus the old 10mm plate and 250g heavier overall?

          How do you initially apply the wax to the ski base? Don't you need a hot roller applicator?

          No way, that's some expensive equipment, man! Depending upon what kind of skis (downhill or nordic) that you're using, you will want to apply a few coats of a soft wax (more if you're waxing nordic), that you scrape off thoroughly before each new application. If it's the first wax the skis have ever seen, you want to make certain that the bases aren't cold - if they're warm, they'll accept wax better, but too hot and you might burn them. Follow up your warm wax coats with whatever temperature range you're interested in - these don't have to be thick coats anymore, you can just chalk the wax on (heat the iron and rub the wax on the iron to melt it a little, then wipe your wax bar across the base - it looks like chalk if you do it right) and iron it in, then scrape it off. A lot of people say that when they first wax their nordics, they like to throw down at least 6 coats.

          If that's not the answer you're looking for, there are 2 common types of wax application - drip waxing and chalking. A third (hot boxing) requires extra equipment, but can be useful if you have the time for it.

          Drip waxing you hold the iron above your ski base and melt wax onto the iron and let it drip down onto your bases, then iron in the drips, not letting the wax stay molten for more than 5 seconds after passing your iron over it.

          Chalking I described in the above post.
