    Thanks for the reply. Rolling drum sounds like the ticket. Then press that and save hours. Bubble is a pain in the ass to make and I feel you lose so much in the process. Maybe not the rest of you guys but I do. I'm also in it for the long haul so investing in a state of the art press like this makes perfect sense.

    I've done the bubble bags and agreed, huge pain in the ass (I've got an 8 bag kit.) Takes forever when you start getting to the last bags and the return is nice but for the effort into it it's a pain in the boys.

    I tried a dry ice method recently and wow, if you are able to line that up over doing the bubble bag with ice water, do that instead. CRAZY return on material.

    If you had large quantities though, I think the rolling drum would be the way to go. Some of their machines can take a LOT of herb, so there's a target audience there for sure.

    We just sold our house and are finalizing things for our move in the next month, soon this beast will be pressing again in the beautiful state of Colorado!

    Congratulations on the sale!

    Looks like a drum is on the list. Just found a place that sells dry ice as well. Have you pressed any yet?

    Hey guys, now that we're finally situated in a better place (thank you Colorado!) we're able to do more with the press and let me just tell you, this press NOW has a name.

    I officially call it: "How To Make Friends and Influence Your Enemies"

    It's awesome. And everyone I've shown it to has loved it. Rosin actually isn't that big of a thing out here where I live from what I've been gathering. But the people that have tried a fresh rosin hit are just blown away, and we smoke shatter, distillate, wax, all that happy harry crap, and when they get to the rosin? SMOOTH. Smooth as ice. Smooth as a baby's butt cheeks. No one coughs after the rosin hits. After the distillate? Coughing. After the shatter? Coughing. Rosin? Smooooooth. Like smooth jazz. Jazz hands!

    These were done using Good Value parchment paper (not the cheapest, definitely not the best.) We've been playing with press times and temps. This is 2 day dried from the plant chopped flower from my neighbor, it's White Widow x Vanilla Sky photoperiod. We didn't use any filter obviously so you can see bits of plant material in the rosin, but for fresh bud this thing can squeeze out the juice man. More awesome pics to come! We've been RUNNIN' this beast. And it's not even harvest time yet!

    This was the first run back into the machine; we weren't sure if the buds would press well or not being a bit more wet (more dry seems to be the ticket, we even tried press fresh frozen bud... ohhhhhhh man. lol. That was a MESS. JUICED out the humidity lol!)

    Not the most impressive results. SOOOOOOO, we started playing with the settings. More to come (and it gets pretty sweet lol, I think we found our "dial-in" spot!)

    This is still part of that first run. We found the press time was way too low and our temp was too hot, it was actually sizzling through the parchment paper. Became very apparent how good parchment is necessary.

    And here it collected up and whipped. Still produced a very nice gold color. With the higher temps on the press the rosin is noticeably more oily. It stills collects up but it seems to make it more runny and darker.

    That was the first time back up and running since our new move. More to come shortly! Also, pro-tips on how to use your pneumatic press to make panini sandwiches! (kidding lol)

    What's the max you could potentially run in there at a time? 1/4 or a 1/2? I have over 10lbs of trim I'd like to press out and those little machines would be murder
