    @Root Your pucks look thick after pressing. Hard to tell from the pictures of course, but to me they look quite a bit thicker than mine after a squish. And I'm doing 4 grams and they are like thin chips when done. Do you have any way to increase the pressure?

    And what temp are you squishing at? I'm going to guess 215F just based on the rosin color.

    I have been squishing at 210F for between 90 and 120 seconds.

    You may be right, the chips I just did may be a little bigger than usual (not by much though!...Good eye!) I think maybe because I placed the puck closer the the edge of the plates (not in the center where the pressure would be best), so I could get the pictures that I did.
    I'm sure it hurt yield...but I plan on using the pucks for something anyway so no waste.

    The pressure is adjustable with the handy dandy tool that sits in a tool caddy on the back.

    Adjust this nut for more pressure. :coco:

    @lunarman
    How does this unit create enough pressure to squish at say 1500 psi? Is there any hydraulics or pneumatics involved or some sort of manual vice?

    Hey there, @lunarman! That is a great question. The pressure between the plates comes in at ~1400psi. We managed this using a system of leverage (and clever geometry) that we spent a long time engineering ourselves. This means that the mechanism is mechanical, not electrically driven, or pneumatic. This was important to us, as we feel that portability is important. People shouldn't need to have an air compressor in their kitchens, and electric systems can be loud, and make the machine much heavier.

    The measurement we took of ~1400psi between the plates (equal to 6 tons when converted) is what compresses your flower (or any other starting material) to the proper thickness to allow for the most efficient transfer of heat from the plates. With everything dialed in properly, you'll get the highest yields when pressing.

    It's a fairly intense amount of work we put into this aspect of the machine. With that said, I hope this helps to answer your question. If not, or if there's a bit more you wanted to know, feel free to reach out us directly as @Root suggested, as we're always happy to get into the deep end of things with anyone who wishes to know more!

    Happy Pressing,
