This is my set up. Really, really easy. I dont have a garage full of tools and i still thought it was easy.

Disassemble this (having some of those really small screwdrivers like you'd use to work on eye glasses makes this part cake) use a dremel to cut this into plates to sit on both sides of each of your hair straightener heat plates. Having the aluminum against the back of the hair straightener plate will keep you from smashing those wire leads and allow you to put more pressure.

I tried a few diff arbor presses and vises, for my small nug presses (i press a nug at a time, its just for me and rosin lasts me a really long time in my wax pen) .... the 5 inch model of this one gives me plenty of pressure and doesnt break the bank.

And thats it. At first i used jb weld to hold my plates to each other but found that metal wire (with slots cut into everything to make the wire stay in place and the plates to meet flush) was far easier. Only tool i really used was a dremel and of course my laser thermometer to constantly check accuracy of the temps. I get great results with this setup and it was super cheap. I can post pics of mine if you want. Got it zip tied to the inside of a milk crate to make it portable and stand upright on its own. It looks pretty rough but works great.

Edit. ... personal opinion here ..... but beware of builds using arbor presses, yeah they work, but for my money its easier to twist that 5 inch vise tight really hard then wait and watch the timer...... vs having to stand there with all my weight leaning on an arbor press handle for 60 seconds at a time to keep pressure on. That yost 5 inch vise gives me better returns than i got from an arbor press and it's less work.

Hope i dont get laughed too hard but here is my Frankenstein (note the notches made with the dremel to keep the wire from sliding around the vise when you tighten it.) Works like a champ and cheaply replaced parts.

Maybe someone can weigh in with some more scientific and/or exact knowledge, but I can at least give you my impressions lately, it's more a hobby for me but I really should write all this down anyways...

Temps... 165~190 = butter range, takes a bit longer, and the lower the more thicker whiter butter consistency. At 200 it is getting into the more sappy / golden yellow instead of the opaque white color with lower temps. Sometimes if you press at 190 or so it will change from somewhat sappy into butter if left overnight (strain dependent?). Yield is relative to temp from what I see, so if you press at 165 you get some white cake frosting looking material, but somewhat lower yields than if you press at 180 and still get some pretty nice butter.

Pressing method... I use a simple system that works for me. I do have a pressure gauge on my press, so if you don't, you may have to figure out the steps, but for my press, each pump of the hydraulic hand pump takes it up about 1 ton.

use a timer, ~1 min per ton...

  1. Press to almost 1 ton, slightly less maybe 900psi on the gauge. wait 1 min...
  2. Pump handle once to move to 2 ton pressure on gauge. wait 1 min...
  3. Pump handle once to move to 3 ton pressure on gauge. wait 1 min...
  4. Pump handle once to move to 4 ton pressure on gauge. wait 1 min...
  5. ... sometimes I stop here, sometimes I do 5 tons, never usually past 5 tons. 1 min per ton still... you get it?

    I may vary slightly from this pressing method, always adding more time if anything, but usually just stick to it. Also, I would love to run a bunch of tests to see what is really best. Because sometimes strange things happen I forget I was pressing and leave it at 2 tons for 15 mins and look and there is a nice amount of rosin batter there! So maybe I should increase these lower times, I am still learning too ;)

    Other notes...

    I prepress using just my hands to form into a 'disk shape' about 2-3 grams around 1 inch around / 3/4 inch high/thick. I prefer material that is so sticky it just forms into a nice disk and all sticks to itself. Usually this is just a matter of hydration. After squishing the puck ends up about 3x3 when flat. I have not used filter bags much yet, I did try them some, but mostly I just press with no filter bag. I may use them to process more quantity if I need to, noticed I can fit an extra gram or two using a bag without worrying about the 'puck' expanding beyond the plates.

    I always start with material hydrated to 55-65% (measure with a hygrometer in a ball jar). I prefer to just start with my own home grown and never let it dip below this humidity level, but rehydration can be done.

    favorite parchment, heavy duty, better release IMHO -

Boveda sucks up water soluble terps. It's a horrible thing to use, but it's got all the mind share.

The best technique I've found is using a salad saver, and putting just about 10 ml of distilled water in the bottom chamber. Put in a dark cool spot for 12 to 24 hours. Also seal the salad saver itself.

The idea is to find the right amount of water, so that it's all evaporated by the time you get the RH that you want.

I got in to growing just so I could press at peak freshness. Now I'm breeding the best pressing strains that I've found and making my own hybrids.

Shameless IG plug.

u/Smokadabowla · 2 pointsr/rosin

It's super strain dependent. The lowest I've gotten is 10% and that's from a single strain. Average is 15%+. Humidity is a big thing too. With these and dialing the time and temps down on certain high yielding strains you can easily get 20%+. Gorilla Glue #4 and Blueberry have been my biggest yielders so far(pics are a couple weeks old but still using the same flower today). If you tell the people at the dispensaries that you're going to press it they might be able to direct you towards better yielding strains too. And instead of using an ounce or more just testing times and temps, you might want to just press small buds one at a time, checking out the color, stability, yield, flavor for like single dab presses. Then you find what works the best without having to buy an ounce of each strain just to experiment.

Osir 1.5" inch straightener plates + control temp gutted and taped onto the straightener. The plates are melted into the pads for my clamp (they're the alternate wide ones instead of the regular pads like you see on everyone elses) and the circuit for the temp control I just taped back onto the edge of the clamp. I also carefully broke off just the plastic cover for the temp circuit so that way I could use the buttons. just used a bunch of electrical tape.

I'd give a full tutorial but I dont really have the money to go buy a bunch of stuff and then wait for it to ship again and all that. Theres a couple good tutorials out there on how to build one, just search "HMK Rosin Press" on google and youll eventually find something.

heres a link to the straightener (which I'd highly recommend despite what tutorials recommend, this has very accurate temp control settings)

and the clamp

u/Harrisoning · 10 pointsr/rosin

Hey there friend! Here’s the link to the hair straightener. It goes down to 170 actually! And it was fairly easy to disassemble.

u/coriakin89 · 1 pointr/rosin

Would this PID work (0-400F)? Or not sure if you use a different model with more 'channels' (I think you said you run 2 per platen, and I think from one unit?)...

In my old day job, I've used setups like this (for different purposes)... you might find this link handy (and maybe some within) - lots of tips for DIY lab stuff (which is entirely relevant for this venture!)... this specific link has a build for a precise/reliable "thermo-coupled heating pad" (within 0.1-0.01deg) - but maybe this is overkill (and ~$200) unless you've found reliability issues with cheaper units...

Otherwise, I'll wait for the post to get other details... thanks again!

u/ArkadyBogdanov · 2 pointsr/rosin

I bought this press, and with a welder, 6 bucks in metal, and a spare bottle jack I made this.

Or you can buy the premade one for about 100 dollars more.

Also I want to add that with max pressure on the hand press, vs max pressure on the bottle jack, the bottle jack version is yielding on average of 5x more oil. Hand presses are complete junk.

After a couple days looking for the best deal I settled on this over the one you linked. It had a 20 off coupon a couple days ago... Dabpress 3x5 on Amazon

u/RosinNoobie · 1 pointr/rosin

Is this what you're referring to? The links are products from amazon

When do you know its ready and the alcohol is completely gone?

Do you reintroduce terpenes?

Since all the alcohol is evaporated do you think it's harmful? I understand you're not a doctor (maybe) and will not take your advice as gospel.

Apologies in advance if posting links is not permitted.

> What straightener do you recommend?

KIPOZI hair straightener. 1.75" plate with digital temp readout. $37.06 Amazon. 5-star rating.

u/Brendarrrr · 1 pointr/rosin

5x5 would be fine. The PSI is on the material being squished anyway. Don't get Nylon, get polyester (for these I like the Mash 710 bags) or use Chemex Filters

u/draconis4756 · 2 pointsr/rosin

So I was thinking about using a drill vise that’ll put in 1000lbs of pressure.....

Irwin Tools Drill Press Vise, 4", 226340

I just feel so much for comfortable crushing on a table instead of in my hands per day. I haven’t seen any kits to convert a vise. I was planning on using the same hair straightener but use epoxy to these jaws and squeeze at 1000lbs....

Is there an advantage to using the hand-crank over this?

u/leo-theleopard · 2 pointsr/rosin

Dabpress 3-ton is a way better choice imo.

It’s also available on amazon prime.

u/lunaticfringe80 · 3 pointsr/rosin

Do you have a UV light? That might help spot mold.

Next time, consider Boveda 62 packs to rehydrate instead.

Also, rosin isn't 100% THC, so it doesn't mean it was 20% THC flower when you get 20% yield.

u/gettinhighsince95 · 1 pointr/rosin

I would use a collection plate. Preferably metal. Here’s what I use with ice packs:

Then put it In glass and cold cure it. If you let it sit at room temp for a few hours unsealed this will help speed up the process a bit. Most cultivars will eventually budder up in time. I usually wait 2-3 days after I press to start dabbing the rosin. It rarely comes off the press like this. 1 out of 20 maybe

There are different thicknesses to the Silicon coating. Different brands probably all spec different. They have a 27lb and 35lb coating rating available, like this

IRWIN Tools Record Parallel Jaw Box Clamp, 24-inch (2026500)

Look a clamp that delivers half a ton of force and doesnt even cost 50 bucks

I don't live in Canada, but I gave you all the info you need to make a decision. If you don't want to do your due diligence and youd rather throw money away and be disappointed, go ahead. I was trying to save you. Even if you look through the posts on this sub, you'll see youre not the first person to think some overpriced premade press will work well, just to be disappointed and discover they dont take refunds.

u/notacrackheadofficer · 10 pointsr/rosin

I use Dixie 35 lb weight ''genuine'' parchment paper.
My test results have no contaminants.
All the testing in cannabis land regarding silicone coating revolves around Reynolds and Raw.
If I tested the 2 worst cars on the market and declared all cars to be shitty, I'd be looked at as if I were the biggest dumbass in the history of mankind.
Professional baking forums are filled with people who have tried all the brands.
They uniformly dismiss any parchment you can buy in a retail store as ripoff crap for the unsuspecting public who are not aware of what ''parchment paper'' means, and have nothing to compare their shitty retail choices to.
RAW is jumping for joy that the cheapest shit they could find, for maimum profit, is being bought by all the fools hoodwinked by their ''cool guy'' cannabis product stature. Why the fuck would they bother making a decent product, when the shitty one sells like hotcakes, because the name RAW gives millions a hard on, for no reason, except that they saw it in High Times.
