Thanks for the tip. I actually made some last night using vegetable glycerine and propolene glycol. It worked quite well, got me high anyway, but was quite harsh on my throat. Assume that is the PG ?

The missing link for me (used in their formula) is PEG 400 (polyethylene glycol 400) that keeps the product from breaking down once mixed. Mine was so thick that was not likely to happen. On their site they suggest diluting way more than I did, however.

They also talk about letting the mixture sit for many hours then straining it using a filter attached to the syringe. Worth a try. It's supposed to remove the fats and lipids. Again, I'd need to be way more diluted for this to work.

You might also want to try pressing it with a coffee filter. A lot of people are doing that to get a super clean result. I seem to loose more in the filter than it's worth.
Some are using screened mesh to do the same thing. Either silk screen material or better yet mesh made from nylon. They sell small bags made from this mesh. My issue with them is they only allow one pressing. You cannot fold the pancake over and over as I do for that second and third pressing.

I see some of the people pressing beautiful clear/amber rosin.
Yes, some are getting great looking product. After the second pressing, I do notice the color shifting from a golden color to more green. Probably the plant material/chlorophyll now getting squeezed out. Might be that two pressings is the limit if you want the clearest product.

All this is trial and error at this point, for me, at least but very cool to be involved with it all. Such a new and exciting field that offers much hope and promise, medically speaking, for those who suffer needlessly every day. The sad part is, for most of us we have to do this work in the shadows.

Someday, maybe someday.

Turn down the temp on your battery. That made a big diff on my e-juice. I had it set full high for using with my coil vape. I turned it to about half way for e-juice and it stopped burning my throat.

My battery is fixed power, no adjustment. It's the one I got from the medical dispensary for use with their products. I think you may be right, though. Using it again last night it seems to be heating my home brew concoction too fast. I need to press it in short bursts, then take an easy puff. Still some throat burning, but I do have a cold, so that's not helping.

If you can suggest a better pen, please do. I just ordered some of these empty 510 style "disposable" cartridges on Ebay, so it needs to work with these.

Some batteries have a little knob to adjust the power output. Any one of those would probably do the trick.

Keep using yours until the battery starts getting weak. If the hits get smoother, that's an indicator.

I needed to add a muffin fan to the top plate to cool it down. I noticed some slight warping probably from the combination of the heat and pressure. With the fan running it now stays as cool as if the heat blocks were off.

Hehe sorry for the offtopic. I am mentally about 13.


Perhaps a steel plate for backing? Would act as a better heatsink.

You seem pretty handy, so maybe not that valuable as to those of us with ten thumbs, but if you google High Simple Diy Rosin Press it will bring up a walkthrough that may give a few ideas for the future.

Based on my calculations, this arbor press version you site can only provide, at best, under 100 pounds/square inch of pressure. My little table top press can supply up to 4300 pounds/square inch, and with little effort on the operators part.

Also, with the arbor press, since the plate drops down it must be raised back up manually and presumably held there with one hand. With mine you simply release the pressure screw and the four springs retract the piston/plate.

Mine is way cheaper and probably much easier to make. The 12 ton bottle jack, at $32 from Harbor Freight, is less than half the cost of the arbor press for $70, also from HF. Way less machining, too.

To each his own... but I'll stay with mine
