so how do i make a hard wax coating on a concrete ledge. like i put 1 full bar of wax on concrete and it slides good but its scraps of a little. so do i just repeat the coating until its like rock hard wax. i think it would work because when u grind u compress the wax into the ledge. but do you guys have any tips or ideas i could use

Just wax the ledge when you want it to slide better. The wax will come off over time, so you obviously have to apply it every once in a while.

Torching what's on the ledge melts it in and it usually slides much better.

coat the ledge with wax (use gulf wax or paraffin wax. you can get it at walmart or kroger) then melt it into the ledge and repeat.

oh and if the ledge is ruff you might not want to waste time with it.

No idea. You can get a thing of butene and a metal torch Zippo type lighter at Walmart for probably less than $10 ($3 for the lighter, no idea what gas is). Then you just sit there and melt it in.

In that case get quikcrete in a tube from a local hardware store, apply it to the ledge, then smooth it with a metal trowel. When it hardens/dries, wax it up and you have a buttery smooth ledge.
