Driptech Rosin Press

I use cold tiles kept in fridge to aid collection off parchment :oldtoker:

 

Same, got a granite skillet I use. Some strains will collect best at room temp or straight off the press as they get too brittle and end up pinging everywhere when frozen. Conversely the black cherry punch I pressed was still runny even after a half hour in the freezer!!

This is the zombie kush, very gooey. Early buds come out almost white. If I put it in a freezer with the jar open, screw tight then put it in the warm spot above the fridge it makes diamonds and sauce. The terps really seperate out. If I leave it as is then I get this gooey caramel buttery consistency. Its very, very, very strong smelling. Concentrated kush...

My bud is a little dry as i was going to sieve it for hash,next time i will just leave it in a bin liner in my out building tends to stay pretty moist there.

Stuff i have at the min is grapefruit diesel lovely strain and a huge yielder of big rock hard buds.

The press is talking to me and telling me to grow black jack again that stuff is just coated with crystal Black dom x jack herer.  There was an even better one from sweet seeds cant rem name tho offhand will have to look.

im thinking of getting one of these but wondering if the 3ton would be good enough for my needs,  I only squish 2-3 grams a day currently in a 1ton diy vice press which to be fair does a great job just not very enjoyable to use. what will the extra 7ton of pressure bring to the table over the 3ton? I'm more bothered about quality than quantity if thats makes a difference.

Also I'm not bothered about driptech so is this for me?

 

thanks :yinyang:

I use maybe 1/4 of the press force at most. The extra force has 2 advantages really, press durability as you are not running it at its limit and also you can squeeze bigger pucks if you want. Bear in mind the effective force on a 3cmx3cm square puck is 4 times greater than say a 6 x 6.

 

I don't use the drip tech method much now either as I'm squashing fresh every couple of days so don't press much at a time, dripping it is optional! This press is imo the most cost effective out of the box press driptech or otherwise.

Thanks @FarmerPalmersNT for this thread and all the info you and others have given here. No holidays this year so maybe Al should get one of these bad boys. I've loads of trim in my freezer , too much . I'm thinking of either washing it and dropping it all through a 45u bag or dry Sift it through a 150u tumbler, than squishing it . I presume it's better to make hash first rather than squishing the trim ? 

 

That Zombie Kush looks looooovely , I think I have a couple of bits that would  squish well. Goji Og , Smile and Moontrain Haze come to mind .

If its trim, then yes. Unless it's really sugary trim doesn't yield well and the quality isn't great if pressed directly.

 

That said going from trim to hash to rosin does lose a fair bit at each step, especially in the rosin bags when you are pressing. Takes a bit of practice. That said, fresh frozen hash makes great rosin.

 

I have a very small tumbler that I run inside the freezer with the door closed on the coldest setting on fresh frozen trim. That makes some pretty decent, and very stinky 'live' rosin from a bag full of sift.

Nice one Farmer , unfortunately all my freezer trim is dry and not fresh frozen , I don't like trimming wet and prefer the buds when they dry with the sugar leaf still intact. I'm leaning on the side of tumbling the trim but have never used my small tumbler I bought about 2 years ago. It was a cheap one so will have to do a few test runs. 

 

Anyway back to the press  , the hand pump is not in stock in the European warehouse , did I read that you bought a hand pump and gauge somewhere else? Also any other items you would recommend? Was looking at their pre presses, the puc and slab style molds.  If that's what there called :unsure: .I apologise if you covered any of this previously man  , my noggin is a bit like the weather at the moment. Heavy and cloudy     :yinyang:

No worries. I got mine on evilbay for £90. 322218419032 is the item number for an identical one.

 

You'll need to get some bags if your pressing hash. Lakeland foil backed parchment is by long and far the best pressing paper you can get (I think it was @Arthur Mix that put me onto that?). 

 

The best pre press for small amounts is the small cylinder press they do, you can get about an eighth in it. If you want waterfalls then a bigger puck is needed but the smaller is more efficient.

 

Optional bits: iso for cleanup, lots of jars (preferably glass not silicone), Stanley blades, foil dispenser/cutter, angle poise lamp or clip on LEDs, little magnets and a steel or stone skillet kept in the freezer for cooling the rosin.

Ah man that's great info , appreciate it all. Now I just have to bite the bullet and go for it , it will take me a a day or two to build up the courage to drop the dollars, but I will once I've worked out the figures. I'm currently looking at people using it on YouTube and reading more about it on Fuck Combustion. Some peice of kit.

 

Happy Squishing man , many thanks

@Al Swearengen, hi man I hope your good. Just a little heads up that the warehouse thing on their site is all to pot. I was waiting for the 10ton to come back in stock in eu and when I asked I was told just to order from the cn warehouse and they will send from eu warehouse as plenty in stock.
