    does an 20mm e coil wrap around the slug without modification (what is the diameter of the slug .33?)... I am not really a diy guy... I imagined a slug like this https://1ikehw1twddx1nfo883n2mn5-wp...content/uploads/2016/11/enail-head-handle.jpg (imagine the slug fits like the showerhead in the coil... )

    yeah was only an idea...

    With the returns from simple torch heating I'd just go for the original slug options, must say the electric .33 coming soon versions does sound intriguing?

    Any more info on that @Nattybushdoctor

    Up next will be our 1/2 oz unit, it will be fully electric, with reloadable tubes for continued use. It will also be Aluminum and stainless. FUN!

    Ive seen some alibaba manufactures offering custom coils for not to bad of a price. Thinking about doing some measuring and ordering one to fit the slug perfectly. That is if the torch run just aren't quite doing it, or if i think i could get better or easier results with the coil. Cant wait to try out my slug anyways just hope it doesn't cost me an arm and a leg to dial in.:D

    Mid Summer is our goal. It could be a little sooner. A small bench top shop press will be needed.

    1/2 oz electric slug?????????? All it needs is a small shop press????????? keep it under 300 and we could be talking a nice upgrade! (I say 300 because the more you go over that you start getting to the prices of other rosin presses)

    Couldn't agree more especially with international shipping, i do like the slug 0.33 and a electric version, with dialed in temps and refillable for constant presses time and again.

    With a 1/2 oz one in progress i wonder if there is work going on for a 1 oz or 2 oz version?

    There is already a five ounce version on the site (you should watch the video, pretty epic).

    I think all sizes will be in our future. Once the Limax is perfected and our 1.5 oz unit is ready then we will fill in the gaps with the other sizes.

    @btka A 25mm barrel coil might work, Hex Nail and Disorderly Conduction both produce them.

    Theres nothing wrong with that! The Fat Mac Can now be used with the Wilton vise, we have made a 5/8 inch pressing plate for it for vertical extractions! Should be on the website soon.

    Getting great stuff, but man I can’t break the 10-15% threshold. Using decent stuff, but I wonder if it’s too dry.

    Have you increased your heat time? Moisture is huge point.

    Just popped into this thread the other day after reading @steama mention it. I had always assumed any decent sort of rosin press would be $500 and up.

    But it looks like I could get going for right around $125 since I already own a torch. There is a WEN tilting vise on Home Depot and Amazon for $54 that looks like it would be perfect.

    Just get the Slug33 and this tilting vise:

    Love the idea of pressing my own rosin. And the 1 g size would be perfect for myself and maybe one other.

    Watched quite a few videos and I love the simplicity of it. Looks like consistent results won't be that difficult once you get things dialed in. Great product, @Nattybushdoctor , have a feeling one is in my future.

    I love mine, @Roth

    Results are pretty consistent as long as you do the same thing! If you get mixed results and you're using the same stuff, write down what you do each time until you find the one that gives you the best return, then just repeat that over again :)

    Just make sure you get the 4.5 version of this vise. I think the one your referring to is the 3.5. Good find. Thanks for posting.
