My wife loves the smell of hot melted wax!
It reminds her of all the great skiing trips she had. The great sensations of a well tuned and waxed ski.

She hates one thing about ski waxing in my basement tuning room. The wax on the floor !!!

I have tried carpets on floor ( friend gives me all his stores ends)!
I have tried mats on floor !
I have tried papers on floor!

There seems to be wax always on floor! Huggggg!

Then I found a great solution ! I fixed the problem where it begins! At the bench level !

I took a stiff carpet ( office type or industrial grade seems best ) and placed it on the work bench where my vices are. Then I cut three ( for three vices) slots about 2" into carpet where the vices are placed on bench surface.
In this manner the carpet sticks out 2" from skis at bench level. No more wax drips !
All wax falls unto carpet (just under vices) !

No more wax drips on floor!

Happy wife !

Saved marriage !

Now another problem has come up !

My son. his wife, his kids all come over to get their skis done ! They love my wax solution so,,,,,,

If anyone can help me,,,with this problem!!!!
