    wax scraps

    so i have a little ball of wax pieces that is the remains of a dozen or so bars of wax, accumulated over the last couple of years, and i'm wondering if there is an intelligent way to melt them down into a usable bar of wax, thereby diverting an additional $1.53 from my local surf shop into my own pocket....any suggestions?

    yes, it's flat and i'm having a slow day, with way too much time on my hands...

    You could try putting the little wax cookies in a clean catfood can and heat 'em up with a sterno stove. Once melted, put the can in your garage fridge to cool.

    put it all in a ziplock bag then put the bag in hot water until it melts together.

    Maybe put it in a container of some sort, leave it in your car all day, and mold it all together by hand around three or four in the afternoon.

    I made a similar thread about this a few months ago: http://www.swellinfo.com/forum/showt...onic-overwaxer

    Since then I still haven't found a better option then to just keep adding to the ever-growing wax ball.

    I've re heated left over wax into bars before...you need to double boil it and find a mold that is flexible. Wax usually comes out a dull grey to muddied white. I stopped after a month or so of using it and tossed the bars to friends (they didn't nearly appreciate as much as I did). Make some weird wax art or use it down to the nub...good luck.
