Thank you, it is cool!
Dabpress is adapting to the market quickly!
I wish I had gotten that sweet amazon price but the 4x7 is worth every penny of $400. I don't see how anyone could be unhappy.
I use a laminate floor remnant as insulation between the press ram and the top of the dabpress. It is able to withstand the intense pressure without cracking or crushing. It keeps the ram nice and cool.
I agree 100%, even at retail price these kits are a real bargain! I'm about as frugal as they come, I tend to want to spend the least amount for the best quality. Damn near impossible in any of the marketplaces but they got me on the price here.
Thanks for the tip on the laminate flooring piece you are using with the top ram, I will have a look around and see if I can find something suitable.
Speaking of something smaller.
How about 3x5" anodized rosin caged cube kit! Let me introduce you to DP-RP35s.
This kit is geared towards the home user for personal use. The suggested press pairing is 6-10 tons, with better yields on the higher tonnage side (consider at least a 10-ton press if you are planning to use a pre-press mold to maximize capacity).
The maximum amount of flowers that you can run through these plates per squish is 30 grams if pre-pressing your material. Loosely packed flowers in rosin filters without pre-pressing will be closer to 10-12 grams.
There is FR4 insulation in-between the hot plates and cage frame to reduce the rate of heat absorbed by the press. The springs, bolts and nuts are the same hardware found on the commercial/industrial version DP-RP37. The same PID controller is used with this new kit as what comes with DP-RP37, however the heating rods are a shorter model to match the plates. The thermocouple sensor and wire is different on this model versus the DP-RP37, the change was made to a more durable design.
The kit has a packaged weight of 14lbs. The kit came shipped to me in discreet packaging - a brown box labeled Model: # (this was left blank) and Made in China. This package took 5 business days to reach me in rural Colorado shipped via DHL Express from Shenzhen, China. The box was in excellent condition upon receipt. Customs description for the product was legit and unassuming "plate kits for heat press"
The PID controller fired up no problem and the controller reached the default temperature of 220F in approx 13 minutes. Testing with both an external thermocouple and digital IR thermometer, the plates are registering approx 10F lower than the controller.
Touching the top and bottom of the cage frame, there is a considerable amount of heat here, so I am not sure if the FR4 insulation is preventing much extra heat from reaching the press. Either way it is good to have insulation at the source to slow down the rate that the press steals the heat off the plates. There is of course a bamboo plank included with the kit to also insulate the bottom cage frame from the work plates on the shop press. The shop press itself is quite cool to the touch as long as the top ram is not extended down and pressing against the top plate of the cage. The bamboo does excellent to insulate the press from the heat of the plates.
30 of these units were made for the launch, priced at $299 + $55 DHL Express Worldwide shipping. These units are only available on dabpress's website currently, with the aim to have stock available in the US fulfilled by Amazon with Prime shipping by the end of April 2018.

I do hope that you enjoy and please let me know if you have any questions or comments!
Great review bro!! Some real nice pictures you captured, these plates look like a total gem! Loved your detailed video review, everything looks quality. It's also really nice to have Roger @dabpress.com working with the community here, love to see brands that take the effort to get real customer feedback!!
Nice squish, too!!
....................................................................This buyer from Holland, This is really smart to use rosin filter bag. I do hope it helps
what kind of return did you get?
Muzzman, do you find that the buds stick together better at a higher RH? I am using 62% right now, and going to move up to 65% I believe to try and coax out more oil at lower temps =)
