    Still Wax Blocking?

    For those that still surface traditional lenses and use wax, how do you clean your lenses after deblocking? I would really like to find an alternative to the Coburn Lens Washer.

    I went back to using Surface Saver tape. Not only keeps the lens clean but also helps with the wax staying on the lens. Use the washer for blocks only

    I can't imagine not taping lenses before blocking. Simple soap and water wash after but no hassle. Only problem now is the good stuff cost over $100 a roll! In my mind, it is worth the time saved and the lens is kept protected during processing... I miss my lab
    Have I told you today how much I hate poly?
