    Got a question for you rosin pressers. Would it work if I used epoxy resin to stick a pair of heated press plates to the biggest grip clamps I can get to press rosin?

    @Ronin what tips can you pass on to a rosin newbie for getting more waxy texture? My first presses resulted in some sappy rosin that is hard to work with. I'd prefer more wax from my rosin. I know genetics and the grow are probably most key. But is there anything you recommend as far as harvest goes, or drying, or the pressing itself?

    You're correct, Plant and grow are key for best results.
    Quality in = Quality out.
    Not all strains press well or the same.
    Next most important factor for me is dryness of pressing material.(trim and flower)
    Just enough to keep it from being too brittle.
    In my experience low to mid 50's relative humidity works best.
    Pre-compressing material is a huge help as well.
    Get the most out of each press.
    As well, press at low temps 170°f-220°f.:thumbsup:
    Another factor to consider is consistency. Press the same way each time. This will allow you to fine tune your process.
    I generally press only for 15-20 seconds.
    If you get runny rosin as a result from pressing, collect it and allow it to dry out for a few days.
    It'll usually turn to a "budder" texture.
    Hope this helps:cheers:

    Thanks man. Nice list of tips that look pretty straight forward. One more question. What pressure do you press at? I always see temp mentioned but not the pressure.

    I don't think I've ever read that you can have too much pressure. Pretty much just use as much as your rig can dish out and handle without breaking anything.

    No kidding. Wow. And there are people out there that say you need a min of 12 ton. Obviously you can get great results with 1 ton. Got me thinking about changing my plans of getting a 20 ton.
