I was wondering where I could buy rotobrush...its a brush that you attach to an automatic drill/screwdriver to removed wax after scrapping off manually with the scrapper. Ive seen it on tognar.com but its 89$...do you guys have an alternative at homedepot that will do the job just as well?

I can't see how spending that much is justifiable for this purpose. I could understand if you own a shop and you tune/wax by hand, but something like this seems so unnecessary otherwise.

I don't find the need for a rotobush necessary but yeah like many tools, you can pick up something way cheaper at your hardware store.

I've always just used a simple hand brush to structure my boards, but now I'm definitely going to see if I can put something like this together cheap. I have a bunch of guys who bring their skis/boards to me for tuning and waxing every season, and it might help save my arms. Thanks for the idea!

no need for a roto brush even on almost every race ski that left my show we just did a good hand brush job, and I worked under willie wiltz so it's not like we were doing crap work either our kids were winning races. I'd suggest getting a bronze brush or a bronze/nylon nylon and horse hair hand brushes if you really want to be doing a good job. I would also get a steel pre wax brush also don't use base cleaner.

I agree that it easily done with scrapping...but I have a problem with scrapping some of the last wax out, but I start going over it with the nylon brush, it takes forever! :(

I tried to quote vicente but it seems as if it's not working. I've always used nylon and horsehair brushes, but I've been thinking about getting into steel/brass brushes. What order do you use all these brushes used in, pre-wax and post-wax?

so every now and then it's good to hit them with a steel brush pre wax to clean them you don't really want to use base cleaner ever if you can help it. After you scrape it you would want to use a bronze or copper brush followed by a nylon there's really not much of a need for a horse hair brush unless you're racing competitively because it's not really going to do anything but shave a tiny bit of time off the first 15-20 ft of your run on the first run after you brush it.

^^ Any way to let one of these beefy brushes (probably steel on a drill) can straight up take the place of scraping?  could it take enough material away to actually call it good?

Man, I had scraping with a passion.  in videos it's always so easy, long strokes that take of huge slices of wax every time.  for me, it's always a big fight with choppy strokes and lots of time.

Depends on which kind of wax you use, you can scrape after a long period if you use soft wax.  You only need to scrape while it's still warm if you use hard wax.  It is dependent on the brand you buy.
