Re: My first wax dip???
The traps look great to me.....
Your wax will end up discolored over time. The heating process when you put the traps in the wax will take some of the dye or dip off. No big deal. Not sure about the KBL, or the candle wax, as I haven't used it before.
The drips of wax are really not an issue unless they are in places that interfere (end of the pan, end of the dot, swivels etc). I leave mine in the wax for a good 60 seconds until the trap gets to the same temp as the wax. Pull them out and shake them really good to get the excess wax off.
Once the wax cools on the traps, I use a flathead screwdriver and a file to clean up the notch in my trap pan and the end of my dog. Then i make sure to twist all of my swivels to make sure they move and aren't waxed solid....
