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.

i want to use the toko t8.
Is it possible to use 230V or 220V?

This is the US version. You'd need an adapter

quick and easy

Finally upgraded from my $4 D.I. iron to this Toko T8. Impressed how quickly it heats up and how easy it is to control the temperature. Base surface seems like a good size, it drips very well, and the weight is super manageable.

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?

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.

Hey Andrew is the base plate on your toko t8 a little over 1/2" thick? Just wondering if this is the new model.

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

Responded on

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.

Responded on

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.

I'm looking to by an iron for a friend and he wants one with a thermostat. does this iron have one?

Yes, the black dial under the handle is used to regulate the temp.

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.

How do you clean it after a waxing workshop?

Responded on

Just wipe off the iron with a rag while it is still warm. However no real need to clean this thing you are just going to be putting wax back on it again anyways.

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!
