I was reading about that; doing the cold-press first to prep the packets. That's what I keep running into, when it squishes it's not evenly distributed (my doing, not the machines) and so when it's pressing down, I have corners of the packet that there is no material at all (and so oil is flowing into it, absorbing into instead of pushing out.)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
I'm going to look up some videos on how some of these guys are building their packets too; I'll show you guys how I made mine and if you have suggestions hit me up and I'll try 'em out!
So are they taking the individual packets and stacking them on top (so a packet with a filter on top of a packet with a filter, etc) or is it literally smashed kief patties pressed on to smashed kief patties and just ONE filter? Actually I think I answered my own question now that I visualize that, I would think you'd want each individual packet in their own filter or they would burst out (which I also had a few do on me but didn't seem to make that much of a different in what squished out.)
I see guys take cold presses to the rosin sheets when they are done to fast-cool it; was wondering if a guy could buy a 12 inch by 12 inch set of ceramic tiles and FREEZE them instead (or marble, whatever would be flat and cool.) You could even get 6 inch tile or whatever in that case. We'll see; necessity is the mother of invention you know!
No it didn't come with anything for pressing (no screens or anything.) I've been using 50 micron stainless screens (meant for rosin pressing according to the manufacturer) and coffee filters (I was told to used unbleached if I could, all I had was bleached so that's what you'll see in the initial pictures. $3k rosin press, can't afford unbleached coffee filters. Go figure. )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?
