Base Repair:

1) Fill in small dings with these SVST P-Tex Candles ($3 for a five-pack).

2)The cleaner P-Tex burns, the longer the repair lasts; this SVST Hot Spot P-Tex Torch ($19) helps. (Tip: Hold the burning candle just above your steel scraper (not shown) to keep the flame blue—a yellow flame means you’re dripping carbon into the base.)
