    This was wrapped up in the top part of the machine when I was taking out the foam padding and straps:
    20170327_163735 - Copy.jpg

    Inside contains the air regulator unit:

    20170327_165210 - Copy.jpg
    20170327_190135 - Copy.jpg

    The instructions were a little vague on how everything works with this but I had some help from @briman on setting it up and it was pretty easy when all said and done.

    There are two hex-head bolts that can be removed on backside of the unit to mount to:
    20170327_190148 - Copy.jpg
    20170327_190208 - Copy.jpg

    And then connect your line on the right! These are a push-connect kind of deal, you literally push the tube into the opening while pushing down on the outer rim of the opening, then release the outer rim and it holds first in place.

    The other end of the red hose goes into the air regulator and the other end to your air compressor. You may need to purchase additional fittings to get it work with your compressor so potentially plan for a quick trip to the hardware store before getting going with this.

    20170327_192601 - Copy.jpg

    Recommended under 150 PSI on your compressor:

    And the unit kicked on (this was when I was figuring out how to set temps.)

    Sweet unit, I know I left that $3000 round here somewhere. I guess the live rosin would make up for it fast if one sold. Did it come with bags? press slow lol or pop goes the rosin. can we see the inside Hobbs?

    I'll go into a more step-by-step on the process here that I've been trying/doing but here's a few pics to start it off!

    I purchased some 50 micron stainless steel screens off the internet not knowing if they would work or not. I was advised they wouldn't work and would be garbage. I figured I bought them, I'll try them.


    I was advised to set my temps between 180-200 degrees Fahrenheit and press for 10 seconds, so that's what I did with this. I can already see some problems with my "envelopes" I made (the creases are catching oil) but it's a work in progress and open to suggestions and tweaks! I'll show some of the coffee filter pressings here soon.

    This was my very first ever pull of rosin off the machine and quite honestly, first ever attempt at making rosin SUCCESSFULLY.

    So now that I gave myself a teaser of how EASY (I can't stress how stupid easy this and I'm sure I'm probably doing loads of things that could use tweaking/correcting lol,) but I wanted to give it a better run!

    20170328_130723 - Copy.jpg

    So I took some kief taken from my HarvestMore Trim Bin (another vendor on here) and made up another two packets:

    20170328_131116 - Copy.jpg

    Changing up the shape and going with a square.

    20170328_131414 - Copy.jpg

    Setting it up in the parchment:
    20170328_131800 - Copy.jpg

    And getting it ready to press!

    "Get yourself an entire box of parchment paper" were the words suggested to me before getting into this.

    WOW good dam i was about to flip if i didn't see some Sexy rez today LOL We are over here watching vids and my friend said to get a few bags ready by pressing them flat without heat and without busting them thn stach them ontop of each other he said its called prepressing the bags ..then smash like five or so at once depending on how much is in the bag. Its suposed to give the best yield when do that way. SO are you hooked on Live rez or what? ou must try fresh flash frozen then pressed...OMG BOOM its speedy so be ready to clean the house lol
