    An Iso dipped cotton-wool ball will clean it up and after the Iso evaporates, stuff the cotton-wool into a vape and you would be set to go (you could add a little extra to it as well if you like, eg kief).:tup:

    Got some skunk #1 150u dry sift, finally can play around with some smaller microns again! This is 11 day old resin.

    Hello fellow Dabpresser :-)

    quite some time since my last post, sorry for the delay but sometimes life happens a bit more than usually...

    Thanks for all the help, inspiration and knowledge i got here in this Thread!!! I can t value this enough and want to share a bit of my experience.

    Ordering:
    Ordering my press was no problem (i got the 10t model) and thanks to the recommendation on the dabpress website i could also order a cheap pump within the EU.
    I had a question about shipping and my mail was answered very fast from Roger.

    Shipping / Customs:
    I chose DHL Express as i don t like waiting and i heard that customs are normaly smoother via them, next time i would probably save the money.
    Shipping from Hongkong to Germany was VERY fast, in fact quite unbelievable fast.
    Customs was not as easy as i hoped - German Customs can be a bitch and they were not able to process my order as they said they needed a more precise description what was in the package.
    I found this out via the online tracking and did not get a letter or email so better check your tracking...
    I got on the phone with DHL and they mailed me a document to fill out and send back - not a nice feeling as paranoid as i can get sometimes...
    They needed an exact description of the items and the corresponding customs tarrif number. I declared it as a Transfer Press and accessories, looked up the numbers and it went smooth through customs, they didn t even open the package. Nevertheless it would be a good idea to declare it more exact before shipping.

    Build quality / assembly / pressing:
    The press looks and feels really GREAT! Very high quality, very sturdy, nice finish and i dig the complete package with an additional coupler for other pumps, the needed tools and some little spare parts.

    Assembly was no problem at all, even with my two left hands :-)

    Pressing: Best purchase ever, best thing since sliced bread :-). To put it in perspective, concentrates are not common where i come from and are extremely hard to find, if not impossible. So the ability to have access to clean and safe concentrates is a HUGE thing.
    I thought it will be a rather long process to get good results and that i will have questions over questions but in the end....: After reading this great thread and the rosin tec thread it was just a breeze.
    I begann pressing with some "not so nice stuff" and got decent rosin but a yield around 10%, a few presses later and with other material i managed the first time to hit 20%.
    My material seems to need 220° to give a good yield and i use the dabpress prepress, bottle tec, and stay under or around 2000 psi on the gauge of the pump.

    For sure i am open for any good "Pro - Tip" but i am also already pretty happy with the results.

    Now i can start to look at all the nice and expensive concentrate Vapes / Bangers / Rigs and so on and so on.
    Poor little wallet....

    I am still pressing at the lower end of the temp spectrum, 162-170 with fantastic results. I love this beauty!

    Do you still get ok yields? Do you have to use much more pressure? I have the impression that already a drop from 220 to 200 is a big loss in yield with my material...

    At one point I had calculated about +/- 1% change in yields +/- 10F, I hadn't expanded that beyond maybe 3-4 strains but it gave me an idea that the higher temperatures strip more off the flower or at the very least push it out faster so it has more of a chance to release from the puck versus soaking in.

    Ideally I think a good way to check it would be to press out a puck and then use a solvent wash with ethanol or high proof grain alcohol on the puck to calculate the remainder. Do the same with a higher/lower temp puck. You can then decarb the wash and add it to coconut oil and make some canna caps or coconut medible oil for your coffee.

    I also tend to press with lower temps around 180-190, using about 1000psi, and find that generally works the best for me.

    Loss is nominal, I'm still getting 20% at least, some strands over 25%. Using cylinder prepress below 1250on the gauge

    25% @ 160F seems like it would have to be the frostiest material ever. Do you have any pics of your starting material to achieve results like that?

    I've not uploaded pics in a while, from when imgur still worked...

    I'm peeing high quality chemdawg, Grease monkey and a few others, but nothing over the top visually with regards to frostiness. I can get 20% or better... And learned to back off before blowouts.

    Pressed all my fresh the night before I left country, I wanted to wish while I was at proper humidity. I'm set for a while before I do another squeeze

    Happy Friday FC!

    Here are some updates from Roger, as always we continue to work towards the best solutions for our customers to produce their own rosin.

    First, we have been waiting for a customs release for our containers reaching the US warehouse, we do apologize for the delay and hope to have these products available in the US warehouse soon.

    Now some bad news, good news. Our 12-ton 4x7" AIO unit has not passed R&D after 20 days of stress testing, we were not satisfied with the hydraulics from our supplier so we will not be creating a 12-ton AIO unit incorporating a bottle jack. Instead, we are going to design the 12-ton AIO unit with a hydraulic cylinder, no pump included.

    Furthermore, we will be offering our own 10000 PSI pump with gauge. Rosineers will be able to choose a dabpress pump to pair to their hr10t35v and upcoming hydraulic cylinder presses without having to DIY build your own. @LesPlenty I hope you find this news to your liking =)

    If everything goes as planned, our new pump should be available in the US within 2-3 months, sooner if purchased from the China factory. We appreciate your patience.

    We hope all of our current customers are satisfied, as always we do appreciate your word of mouth support and unbiased reviews of our products.

    This is just a guess, 1-1.5 months, from our China factory. Then another 4-6 weeks to the US warehouse.

    Thanks for reply!

    I think that will make a lot of people happy, if they can get the pump from you as well.

    I just want to give Dabpress some love for an excellent machine (6 Ton Press) and excellent customer service. I procrastinated last week and missed an opportunity to grab one of the 3 still available on Amazon Prime so when I placed my order off their site on the 3rd I chose the California warehouse option. I received an email reply saying my order was in fact coming from China and would take 5-7 Business days along with a day or two to arrange shipment. Well long story short is it's only the 6th and I received my press hours ago! From China to NJ via DHL Express (Free Shipping)...Thanks!!:tup:

    That is so awesome you got the press so quickly, congrats and thanks for your business! :cheers:

    Some of the warehouses are a little ambiguous

    CA = Canada
    CN = China
    US = USA
    EU = Europe

    I bought a $70 gram of rosin at the dispensary the other day to compare with what I am pressing at home and my rosin was way nicer. It’s turning me into a super pot snob. :lol:

    Ouch that's expensive! That'd power a light in a small room for 2 months =) Glad to hear your homemade meds are setting standards :tup:

    I recently got my 6-ton dabpress a month ago direct from the website from the Canadian warehouse. I absolutely love it.

    I just received an email from you guys asking for a review on your .com.

    Are there any incentives for reviews? Would love a pre-press, and would even add reviews on reddit and instagram as well. Lemme know :)

    Personally I press at 180f on my 6-ton for 1:30. Then I bump the heat up to around 200f - 205f to do a 2nd/3rd squish and get the remaining rosin out. I keep first squish low-temp stuff in a jar. My 2nd/3rds I keep on parchment paper. I dab both, but the 180f stuff when I want the nicer looking, tasting product

    My presses tend to land between 2:30 and 3:30, but I tend to get just about everything in one golden press. I've tried second runs and never been able to collect any notable amount on a second.

    I don't feel I sacrifice much yield on the lower temps. I am still getting 20%+ yields and up to 25% on some strains.

    I do find myself adjusting temp/pressure/time with each strain to find the sweet spot. ChemDawg has been a phenomenal squisher at low temps. Really spicy on flavor, tastes just like the plant.
