Graveda 10t rosin press

Hi fellow dabbers... (and apols to those I have tagged if inappropriate)

 

Have been using my Sequoia HVT atomiser for the last couple of weeks (v impressed) and am running low on my concentrates made from ISO or Butane from my trim.  Am wanting to move to solvent less extracts and have been looking for a decent rosin press to use on some freshly dries buds.

 

Like @OLaC, Ive been waiting for dabpress to update stock and have been informed at least another 3 months before EU stock replenished.....Ive read through @Arthur Mix excellent guide to building ones own and did seriously consider that route.  But I've found the ready made presses to be more compact.  I cant see me able to hide a home made version so easily as the bench presses are not small........ 

 

So in my searching, Ive come across Graveda presses, esp the 10t.  A German company who claim to have designed the press, but it looks very very similar to the Dulytek 7t.

 

There is not a lot of info on Graveda and very few reviews.  I did contact them and whilst they were not as quick in their responses as both Dulytek or Dabpress, they appear to be a legit company, albeit with far less market presence than the other two. Incidentally, I did consider the Dulytek 7t but the shipping and taxes made it very (too?) expensive.

 

So has anyone heard of Graveda, good or bad.  My concern is they are a small company who will provide little to zero customer service, whereas Im confident the customer support is far better from Dulytek or Dabpress.  But does that matter?  The weak points on these cheaper presses seems to be the jack, and that can be easily replaced.....

 

Any thoughts would be really appreciated.  Although it may just be a 'suck it and see' purchase.  Its E339 and I can pay via PayPal so i suppose I will get some protection.....

 

Thanks again and apols again to those tagged if not applicable......

Those graveda look to be like devil press which look like others and not that good quality imho graveda have an OEM factory deal exactly same frames etc. It’s probably all the same factory also known as Auplex.The Dabpress is the best off the shelf all the rest will have issues at some point .

The jack will always have issues if doing lots of presses as it will heat up . The plate heaters have the thermocouple in heater or just 1cm in plate so it reads incorrectly. It’s up to people what they buy on a “suck it and see” to me it’s a total waste of money and time.

Thanks Arthur.  Short, sharp and to the point.  Appreciated.

 

Appreciate its also up to me on a 'suck it and see' basis and how I spend my money...... 

 

Think I will have to revisit the self build or wait till dabpress have some in stock....

I know, but i want it NOW! 

 

I think you and Arthur are right; Either wait till the dabpress are back in stock (if they ever do!  I emailed them and this is what they hope so fingers crossed) or build my own.....

 

Until then, BHO/QWISO RULES!

 

Have a good weekend folks!

I've been using the small Rosinbomb Rocket press for a while with no problems. It is compact and easy to store and transport, has reasonable sized plates, warms up quick and so far has been very reliable. (Although I do want the RosinBomb M60, but at £2k I recon I'll be waiting a while). 

I notice they are around £500 now, sure I paid around £350 a couple of years ago. Found it more hassle than worth at first, and it caned my weed - but since giving up baccy, working out how to get best returns and buying an Enail I realised concentrates are the future :) (for me).

 

The Rocket press is criticized for lack of power, around 1500lb/700kg - but I return 20% from decent bud, 10-15% from shit bud - 100-120C / 90-120secs. I give it a heavy prepress using a section of pipe, 2 round headed bolts and a hammer - it makes nice little round 5g pucks that I place inside a section of nylon mesh - I buy the long cylinder mesh socks and cut them into 5-6cm lengths and fold the ends over each side of and totally enclosing the puck, before holding it inside a folded sheet of rosin-paper - use decent, thick paper, not greaseproof stuff from the supermarket, you can reuse the decent paper, the shit paper just rips too easy.

Thanks @QuintinQuick. Always good to hear opinions on presses.

 

I've also been trying to dump the tokeing for a while. Have been making qwiso bho etc but fed up with solvents.

 

I'm very swayed by @Arthur Mix self build. I've costed it all up to about £550 for a solid 10t set up and I will then have the press for the workshop also..... Not as convenient/tidy package but I'm sure the parts will be more solid.  I also want to investigate if my pid could also be used as e nail. Another q for Arthur I guess.....

 

I'm currently using a great bubbler courtesy of China and have just bought a  hvt sequoia with bubbler which I can recommend..... great for out and about and different coils can make things interesting..... The UK seller is really helpful (Matt). 

 

Biggest challenge is the mental. For 2 decades I've shared a few smokes with the missus over a drink or two at the end of the day.  It's a very enjoyable habit but now noticing effects on my tired lungs......

Right,  I just need to source some decent plates and I can get everything ordered.....

The pid can be used for coils when you know how the coils wired .:oldtoker:

"qwiso + bho" and ice - they look like a hassle to make, and a bit dangerous - I think you'll enjoy making rosin.

I find it best to put it straight in the freezer from the press and it becomes more waxy than oily.

Cool. Have sourced some plates so hopefully orderings all the parts today. 

Thanks again to @Arthur Mix for his previous posts and some additional guidance he has provided direct.

Once I have made a bit, will post some rosin porn.

Weather warning here in my area of France today. Expecting 37c. My poor loft grow.....
