Quoted from joseph5185:
It doesn't sound like you applied any additional wax or removed what was there from the factory as I understand there is some. Apparently people like the circle applicators that you would use on your car and it makes a lot of sense to me and easily obtainable through Amazon.
Did you inspect or immediately replace the balls that came with the machine?
Also, I'm sorta hung up on this "sacrificial layer" people claim after waxing. Is that actual fact? I mean, it was my understanding that this is essentially smoothing out any "rough" areas and essentially the rest of the wax is picked up, but as vid says, you can actually "feel" the wax with your finger so it must be true?
I'll definitely have to check out the other thread that you provided for Houdini. That's awesome!
Well...back to reading for now I guess. haha
I'm going to do my first wax in a day or two. And yeah, I bought some sponges from Amazon that were recommended.
I had my friend give the balls a quick rub in the inside of a hoodie, but I'm not really sure if I should clean them last that. I know pinballinreno suggested some different fluids for cleaning, and I'd assume using a microfiber towel would work great in this instances.
But yeah, just look up my profile, and see my last week or so of postings. I asked many of the same questions you have on your mind.
I'm waiting for my Cliffy Protectors before playing much more, post wax. That's another subject/to do list, entirely, haha!
