Melting wax and glue require different temps...

The heat required to melt wax (very low) and the heat required to melt glue (much hotter) are two different things. The chance of damaging carpet with a "warm" iron is slim. The chance of damaging carpet with a iron hot enough to transfer the heat through the carpet to the glue is much greater. I'll bet one would be hard pressed to find a carpet installer who would recommend Steve's method.
