Got my new press in today. I wanted to create this thread so we could have a place to post techniques, and whatever else is relevant. I am still relatively new to pressing rosin so I am still learning. I started with the Rosineer Presso, then built a DIY Harbor Freight press with ebay plates, that simply wasnt reliable. I really wanted something that I could rely on, and also something that I could produce the same result over an over again, so I opted in for the pump jack with Gauge (Which has not arrived yet). The gauge will allow me to re-create the same pressure each time I press. I havent really been able to get decent results every time because I was either getting blowouts from too much pressure from the Harbor Freight press, or the temps were not correct... Lots of lost flower... I am hoping that I will see a return in investment from this guy... It sure as hell wasnt cheap...
