Great Iron

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This iron heats up fast and spreads wax pretty well. I use it on my boards at least once a week. It does take a long time to cool off after use, so put it somewhere safe from kids and animals. Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase.

Great Prouct

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This iron is my first iron I've ever used. I did not want to have to buy multiple irons right off the back from them failing or not doing the job right the first time, so I put the extra money down to get this one and I'm very satisfied. The first time I used it I waxed 3 snowboards in the same session and I have to tell u that the temperature control and ease of use with this iron is awesome. The iron cycles on and off to keep the temperature at the desired settings and the lighting system ensures you know which cycle it's on. Also the grooves on the iron are great and definitely help for easy gliding of the iron. All in all if your worried about spending the little bit extra for this iron I have to tell you that it's completely worth it!

My Clothes Iron a thing of the Past NOW!

The Toko T8 Wax Iron will make your life easy when it comes too prepping your winter babies. Your skis or snowboard deserve the love so spend the money and ditch the old clothes iron! The temperature control with this iron is super easy to set with the dial and you'll really notice the difference and ease that the wax will drip and apply to those bases. Well worth the investment, wasted wax will be a thing of the past with the Toko T8 Wax Iron.

Put away your clothes iron and buy a real wax iron! It heats up more quickly and evenly, stays at the right temperature, and makes for a quicker and more efficient job.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The iron arrived today. I plugged it in. It will not heat to any temperature on the dial. It doesn't work. POS

Sorry for just having had noticed this now. I hope the iron was replaced at no charge? This is a very successful iron and we have problems with maybe 1 in 1000. Please let me know if you are dissatisfied. (Ian@TokoUS.com). Thank you.

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 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.

How do you clean it after a waxing workshop?

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.
