This is the first time I ever pressed, and it was a piece of cake. Couldn't believe the yield as it was close to 25%. The puckmaker is extremely helpful and truly is perfect for the rosin bags. I left the cage at the default setting of 190 degrees and it was perfect. There is so much talk about how much exact pressure you should use and all that. A manual press has no gauge for pressure, and all I can say is that it really is not a big deal. I figured it all out on the first press. I am so glad I bought this, and the company's support is 5 star.
New 3x5 DIY Caged Rosin Press Plates Kit - Build Your Own 10-12 Ton Hydraulic Rosin Press
Very well put together very sturdy. Does the job and the plates heat up quick. Checked the temps with my heat gun and all were on point.
Ordered a 3x5 caged plate kit and I am very impressed! It seems to be very high quality. Both plates heat up evenly and accurately. They aware alighted perfectly every time due to the cage. They are well insulated and are not really transferring any heat to my shop press (which is great for the life of the seals!). I’ve only used them a handful of times so far but I am very glad I went with this kit over the higher priced options out there. These plates seem just as high a quality as the more expensive brands.
Hello this is my third diy rosin press from Dabpress, 5th I’ve made and sold, the first 2 were cheap diy kits from China, just a cheap product for the cheap price, sold each one, the third press I bought from Dabpress, and the anodized gold coloured plates not only looked good, outperformed any other I had, but the coating is amazing, I use a little water and soap wipes off instant, love it, no alcohol and rubbing. I had 2 of those, I sell them if there is interest, this one I had on 20 ton stand up press, next I got i real ice table top press, best in town half price, bought 2 , so the one I have now is the first time I paid more for the cage, and wow, love it, the hardest part about building and using the uncared plates was lining them up and keeping the that way, the cage provides everything including a threaded hole on the bottom, was easy to build it bolted to the bamboo perfectly straight and centered. This is absolutely the best performing Rosin Press I have ever used, less blowouts, bigger returns, but even get better looking product, I’m already thinking about the next size up to buil the next one. I have actually sold 2 presses to a concentrated company here in town, so they must be as good as anything in the price range ( I’d say better)
Glad to leave a review, the very best rosin press kits available imo. -Thanks
