Best Way To Collect And Store Rosin?

I recently put together a DIY 12 ton press. Works great, but seem to have problems collecting the rosin. I always have a bunch that sticks to the tool when I am trying to put in silicon containers, and when I try to get back out of containers, always end up with a lot more on dab tool than wanted. Is there an easy way to handle rosin? Or is it always going to be a sticky mess?

I have seen silicone tipped tools but I have not tried one.

I have read about a person who uses a paper clip. He got a dab on the end of the paper clip and then heated the paper clip slightly above the dab and it dripped off the paper clip. I tried this and it worked. Albeit, kind of a pain in the ass.

I use a stainless flat tool and just wipe it on the edge of the quartz when I put the dab in the cup. It drips down after the cup gets hot. Not a great method but it works for me. Plus, the dab dripping down the side of the quartz cup slows the burn a little so it actually dabs pretty nice.

I use silicone containers and have no problem but I have read that silicone is not great for long term storage.

As for collecting it off the parchment, I use a glass swizzle stick. Usually works fine unless the rosin is extra runny. Then, I just press the parchment onto glass and pull the parchment off quickly. It leaves all the rosin on the glass and I scrape it with a razor blade.

Peace

I collect by just folding it onto itself if that makes sense to. Pretty simple. You can also trow you tools in the freezer for a minute to work with them cold.

That sounds like a royal pain in the ass. Freeze the parchment with oil on it and it doesn’t matter how runny the oil is it will peel off effortlessly until it gets warm

I have been storing Rosin in Silicon jars, but then the silicon jars are vacuum sealed with a Foodsaver machine and put into the fridge..next yr, I will take some out and test..

BTW: I have one of those glass collection stamps but have never tried to use it (are they any good?). I usually just take a SS scraper and pull the rosin left off with a small dab mat..anything left on the tool is dabbed. If things get reallt thick on the collection tool..I hold it above a dab banger to heat it and then it comes off very easily with the dab mat.

If you freeze it you can grab a blob and kind of tap tap tap it on rosin on parchment and it will glob up.

To get it in silicone i scrape it off a tool and then heat the tool up with a lighter to drip the last bit off. Whatever is left goes in the wax pen.

It is a sticky situation no doubt about it.
