Making rosin aka wax aka sticky expensive shiz

#1

Hey fellas and ladies. I’m looking to get the most out of my product and right now I’m trying to figure out this whole wax thing. I have a gratuitous amount of sugar trim hanging around and I’m still harvesting at this time from my last one. I have seen some things and read some things. But I would like to process this left overs. Even if I do edibles, having a degree in baking and pastries and all haha. Any help, recipes, processes, or just a general point in the right direction is much appreciated. @garrigan65 @Hogmaster @Myfriendis410 @Countryboyjvd1971 @Garden_gnome @anyoneelseimighthaveforgothaha

Hey I moved topic FYI
@Earl
With your trim and popcorn buds I would either dry shake them with a pollen seperator to make kief or use bubble bags to make bubble hash

There are many options as far as what you can do I make rosin myself but you need a press for that
Look up a thread called pressing with hog you can check that process out

I make coconut oil to use with my eddiblies
You can’t hide what is in them tho with my process but it will get you feeling really good hahaha

@Countryboyjvd1971 no worries on the move thanks brother. I didn’t exactly know which category to throw it under. I will def check that out. Thank you. I have looked into the press. And being food service I almost wondered why I couldn’t use a panini press or plancha grill ya know cause they can get so hot and you can control the pressure when pressing down. What’s your thoughts on that bud

@Earl there has been a few members who tried the grill thing with less then good results
Min return so I don’t advise that

There’s a few presses available for a decent $ around 250 and it goes up from there
Here one style I know a few members have and enjoy also check out eBay for presses this style one was around 250 there brother

I’m in the process of building a hydraulic press

It’s going to cost me under $400 to get a 6 ton press set up here’s the links to the parts I’m using

And remember the high pressure the better your results @Earl

@Countryboyjvd1971 hell yea that’s what I like. Holding my own stuff. I already have a 12 ton shop press. I dig that I can swallow that pill for the plates. How much are you getting for wax in your market? Also whats a Lahore city near your market for comparison? I’m pretty close to @garrigan65 so we might share a similar area if you know what wax is going for in your area Will?

@Earl to be honest I have no idea what they are charging for wax here I don’t buy it but depending on the part if the state I’ve seen a ounce go for anywhere between 2-400 so I would think at least 50 a gram prob more

Let me know if you get one started

Mines a work in progress but
Here’s a few pictures to modivate you
4 grams of kief 3.3 gram return

I got the machine and my press and I’m trying to figure out how they are calculating temperature on this pig. I thought the first deer of numbers you mess with is heat. What is the second set for? The one with 4 digits you can input?

Set of numbers not deer. What do you have yours dialed in at? Heat? Time? Kind sir?

If you use YouTube you can do a search for Mr. Canucks Grow. He has a couple of videos on the temperature he uses for his press.

I know the temperatures I need. I bought the same plates and unit as @Countryboyjvd1971 so that’s why I am harassing him to see what he says lol.
