I can see myself burning time I don’t have doing work that has been done by others.
Check YouTube. I’m sure someone has, but I would apply electrical background to what they’re using, just to verify it makes sense.
I bought a pre-made set @merlin44
But you can buy an H or A frame for a press from Harbor Freight like this
Probable get heated press plates from amazon or ebay like this
You should thank Hog and CB. I’m just the jealous bystander lol. Definitely keep us posted if you move forward.
My bad, lost track of the thread…well “Duh!” “Pressing with Hog” should be enough to keep me on track.
A big THANK YOU to @Hogmaster, I would not even be considering this if it weren’t for him.
Harbor freight has some cheap bearing presses as well that would work out @merlin44
Excellent info. How much pressure is needed? Also, are the temperatures listed F or C.
There is a Harbor Freight in the neighboring town, may pop over for a look-see. THX
Temps are f
Pressure needed I would go with min 3-5 ton press that will be plenty for a home user
The one that @Hogmaster is showing runs in the 399$ range FYI for the dab press set up he just got
I am very happy with my results.
Where in NY are you from? I’m about an hour west of Albany.
Here is electric model.
I don’t believe I’ve ever had it over 10,000 psi but I cranked relief valve and dead headed it to 14,000 briefly. Best I can tell that model runs about $5,500. Looks like smaller pump will do similar pressures at about half flow rate for around $2500. I’m sure there are less expensive models too. Those particular units are 10 years old and get beat on regularly.
Ya lol. For those times you need a little bigger hammer.
That’s some serious press. Def gonna get it all with that.
Well, I am scraping the bottom of my rosin vial so it’s decision time.
So many things on the lists
love that you love this press @Hogmaster and I am so damn impulsive…
grown awfully fond of the storm pen and rosin treats!! I know I would love experimenting with temps etc to get the tastiest results.
So only your top plate heats up correct HM? Any benefits to having both plates heat up?
