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...image.jpg

Good stuff Jag!! Awesome piece of equipment.

One key thing , as its probably the most important: 62% RH

Here are some #'s that were gathered when I started:

Just to put this on here (Relative to Dabpress driptech 10ton)

2.25 is the coeff number relative to the cylinder on the press.

2.25 x PSI on the gauge = Total Force Delivered
Total Force Delivered / Surface Area of Material (sq/in) = PSI at the material
For flower - the suggested range is between 800-1200 PSI at the material.
For fine material – the suggested range is between 400-600 PSI at the material.

For a 1.75" cylinder shaped puck from using 30mm pre-press mold, 2.4 sq/in at 1500 PSI you need 3600 pounds of pressure.

1593 PSI on gauge = 14.5 x 112 = 1633kg = 1.8 tons = 3600 pounds

For a 2.5" cylinder shaped puck from using 40mm pre-press mold, 4.9 sq/in at 1500 PSI you need 7350 pounds of pressure.

3280 PSI on gauge = 14.5 x 230 = 3335kg = 3.67 tons = 7350 pounds

Thought that you went for the 4x7 12 ton model..No matter, the 10 ton rocks too! This was mine before I traded for the 4x7's

I went for the 3x5 just thinking I would be doing smaller presses most of the time... You know me Buzz, I'll just wind up doing it the hard way and ordering the 4x7 in 6 months loL
