I've heard a lot of good things about this forum on reddit, this is literally my first time on this site so excuse the poor format.

I'm getting more interested in solvent less methods and rosin especially, what's the best press for beginners? I'm leaning towards the DabPress 6 Ton, seems like it has everything I need and its just plug n play.

Thanks in advance, hopefully someone reads this, not sure where I even posted this..

hi topshelfmids,

so, i dont' have a lot of experience with different presses, read on a lot, but only have used my DabPress 10 Ton. I was lucky at the time at got one of the last 10 ton pumps from strongway i belive before they stopped carrying them, but DabPress now offers their own, it is just a little more expensive.

I have loved my 10 ton, and the ability to monitor the pressure, plus option to use drip tech, where you tilt the machine, to let the rosin drip down.

I have seen plenty of other cool ones, all different prices. I think DabPress has the best price and quality balance, plus the U.S. rep that is on the thread is very responsive and helpful.

I would think any of theirs would be great, and you would just have to decide whether you want a one and done, but unable to know the pressure you are at, or one with an external pump that has a gauge.

Personally, i like a gauge to make things more easily to replicate, but from what i have read others don't have a lot of issues as they get practice and know when, or count the pumps, of when to stop.

Regardless, a rosin press i highly recommend. Soon i will have access to some good homegrown, and can't wait to press. I have pressed some low quality and dispensary stuff, but the dispensary stuff is to expensive for me to want to press much of it. It has been great to make my own concentrates whenever i want, and then supplement with some fancy stuff from a dispensary or finishing up some concentrate ig ot of the black market.

hope this helps. Do a lot of research of the other types, and do consider "growing out" of a certain model. I went with the 10 ton, because the cost difference between the other models was so small, if igured "buy once and cry once."

It's about a.month I have a 6 ton dab press and I'm super happy and get great production. Someone had said he had a 10 ton one that I have never tried but I believe it a little better but a little pricier.

With a dab press I believe you will be happy dont make the mistake I made, ordered a cheap press and was so dissapoited in production.

I have been doing the same research lately. Did you go with Dabpress? Thoughts, advice, things you have learned that you didnt as a noob?

I just ordered dabpress 6ton personal press. About to arrive. I have a lot of cured flower to press and also a lot of dry ice sift that I want to press. I have never used a rosin press before. I'm as noob as it gets. I ordered the combo filter pack and also a pre press for the flower with my machine. I'm looking for tips and tricks. Should I run my flower through pollen extractor and press the keef or should I press the flowers. Also do you guys/gals like to press wet flowers or cured. Should I use silicone baking mats or parchment or silicone paper or what. Also do I use filters with flower or just with keef. I have read so many things that contradict that I am now confused. Looking for personal experiences and info from enthusiasts like myself who are a little deeper into the processing game than I am.

Regarding pollen extractor I did 60g on a trim tray and got 11g back of nice yellow kief, pressing that I get 5g waxy budder

Same buds pressed straight get about 8g toffee

honestly I prefer pressing straight bud as yields are higher and I think it tastes a lot better!

I like to use semi dry as the roz is easier to handle, fresher bud roz stays wet longer, I use 90u or 37u bags and parchment paper on my 3"x5" plates, can load 14g on one squish and then double squish but I prefer smaller loads ~7g and 1 squish only

If you aren't sure you'll like it, the juicebox was a decent setup to try, or just use a hair straightener if you have one. If you enjoy it, then I recommend the dabpress 10 ton, nice little compact kit with lots of pressure and a good size

Is it really worth it to purchase your own dab press?. I'm just guessing that they aren't really practical or meant for personal or home use. Or are there machines that are really meant for personal use on your kitchen countertop?....Edit: I answered my own question using google.

Check out DabPress' offerings: https://www.dabpress.com/collections/hydraulic-rosin-heat-presses

^ They have a very good reputation around here for quality entry-level, personal-use rosin presses.

I've had my eye on that 10-ton Driptech model for some time.

Personally I love my Low Temp 3x5 press. So much that I upgraded my V2 Cage kit to the All-in-1 unit for over 2k USD.

They sell pre-press molds so if you are after flower rosin they got what you need to press an oz or more in 1 go.
