    Building your own hydraulic rosin press, You will save a lot of money. That's the reason I got into squishing rosin to begin with. Doing bubble hash and sift is fun but it takes time and is a lot of work. Squishing buds into rosin is quick and very effective. Not to mention, no solvents. This is a big part of why we love rosin so much.

    My squish with medical cannabis cost $13/gr for rosin when buying ounces of flower at a time at $90. To buy rosin from the caregiver, it is $35/gr on the cheap end. Nearly 1/3 the price to squish your own medicine with a DIY rosin press. I would assume you could easily pay for the unit over the course of 16 grams of squished flowers vs buying rosin outright.

    I am preheating about 30 mins, I think it helps to insure the plates are fully saturated. Also, it seems the PID is more accurate than I thought, it reads nearly spot on, maybe 2-3 F off in either direction depending where you check the temperature on the plates.

    Saves Money To Build Your Own

    We have to pay more freight charge for a heavy hydraulic press. It is much cheaper to buy it in local store. It is easy to maintain it; you needn't spend more time to get support.

    I recommend building hydraulic rosin press with dabpress anodized rosin cube kit dp-rp37.

  4. I've been looking into personal use rosin presses and have seen this cube kit. It looks nice but why is this product any better than the rosin press plate kits on ebay for $220?
     
  5. I tried the rosin method but found it extremely hard to scrape off the oil. It wouldnt stick to my dabber but just spread around the paper

  6. I made some rosin with a hair straightener for the first time and it works but it's a pain in the ass and found that the rosin doesn't come off the parchment paper as easy as it appears in videos. It was a sticky runny mess even after cooling off in the freezer. Takes patience to collect the rosin.

    Money Saving To Build Your Own Hydraulic Rosin Press


    It is a trend to build your own hydraulic rosin press!

    • High Yield
    • High Pressure
    • Real Food Grade
    • Money Saving
    • Easy To Maintain
    Why You Have To Build Your Own Hydraulic Rosin Press
    Pneumatic rosin press costs about $500, and you have to buy an air compressor to work with it.
    Electric rosin press costs above $1000, while pressure is smaller than a hydraulic press.
    Manual rosin press is easy to use, costs you less but delivers low pressure.

    To buy a desk hydraulic rosin press, you have to pay a lot on shipping charge.
    If you build your own, after tens of times' pressing, you'll realize that you have saved money at the end.

    Benefits From Hydraulic Rosin Press When Pressing Flower Rosin
    Here is what people said after pressing flower rosin using the hydraulic rosin press:

    "Saves a lot of money. That's the reason I got into squishing rosin to begin with. Doing bubble hash and sift is fun but it takes time and is a lot of work. Squishing buds into rosin is quick and very effective. Not to mention, no solvents. This is a big part of why we love rosin so much.

    How To Build Your Own Special Hydraulic Rosin Press
    If you have an arbor press. We recommend you our dp-rp33. It's suitable for building arbor press with tight budget.

    Estimated Cost:

    $199 for our anodized rosin press kit dp-rp33
    $50-$80 for arbor press

    In total: $249-$279

    If you're not so tight on budget, we recommend you our dp-rp35 & dp-rp37.

    Estimated Cost:

    $100-$150 for a h frame hydraulic press at local store. ( Harbor Freight etc)
    $269-$399 for our anodized rosin press kit.( dp-rp35 or dp-rp37 )

    In total: $369-$549

    Cost above $1500 for a professional hydraulic rosin press is not quite as good as building a hydraulic rosin press.

    Tens of times' pressing, you'll realize you have saved a lot!

    Let us enjoy pressing and start money saving!

    How To Achieve High Yields with Anodized Caged Cube Kit

    dp-rp37 product review

    I purchased this kit a month ago and have had a lot of time to mess around with it. First, it should be noted this kit is designed to be used for the rosin plates only. It is not designed to be used as an enail like other presses. This should allow the heaters and PID to last quite a while. The caged kit itself is very sturdy and heavy. It feels well designed and solid. The PID controller can heat the plates up to flower rosin temperatures (180-200F) in about 15 minutes. A bamboo plank is included in the box to help insulate the plates from the press's frame. Overall, this kit is extremely well built. The best part about these plates is the anodizing all across the plates. You can take temperatures of the plates at any time using a digital IR thermometer. I've also used an external thermocouple to compare to the PID settings and the controller seems to run 5-10 degrees higher than what registers on the plates.
    I have squished a variety of amounts with this kit and have found that it works well with 1/8th, 1/4th, I haven't tried 1/2 yet, but that's coming up in the future! I know it will handle it well.

    I highly recommend to purchase a shop press that includes some form of pressure gauge. You can certainly go by feel but if you have a pressure gauge, you will notice the pressure decreases as the rosin melts off of the flowers. Knowing how much pressure is being lost and when to reapply to maintain pressure is important.

    Customer support from dabpress rep has been good with easy communication about the product.

    Be sure to get a variety of rosin filters to use with this kit, if you just plan on pressing flowers, 160 micron filters seem to work just fine, you could try smaller microns but I dont see the need, my rosin is coming out nice and clean with 160 micron filters. Dry sift or bubble is best pressed with smaller filters like 60 micron or lower.

    For this sized plates (3x7"), a 10-ton press is going to nearly hit 1k PSI maxed out, so that would be a fine pairing with this press, but a 12-20 ton press will be a better option for these plates if you plan to maximize the amount of material being ran through it each press so that you can hit 1-1.5k PSI across the puck.

    Yields have ranged from 18-27% depending on the material being ran, but it is consistently giving good yields at varying temperatures.

    Shout out to Roger and Dabpress for bringing us this affordable well built rosin press
