How To Get the Affordable Hydraulic Pump With A Pressure Gauge For dp-hr10t35v Driptech Rosin Press?

Trying to get a jump on the affordable DIY hydraulic hand pump, hose, and gauge.

I have not tested any of this yet, but putting this up here as it's as close as I've got. Will likely be ordering the bushing and adapter once I have the parts in hand to verify the fittings.

This is what I am thinking right now, the fittings make this a more expensive option =/

1) Generic 10-ton hydraulic hand pump with hose 10000 PSI rated (1/4" NPT threads on hose)

    It’s hard not to begin with “After extensive research” but……..I was aiming at this approach of building a separate pump to mate with the 10 ton press. After extensive research 😉 I chose to buy the 6 ton unit with integrated jack. I did so because most of my pressings will be two 7 g pucks. I’ll never need to exert more than 6 ton of pressure. I’m delighted that I narrowed it down for myself. Take away message: Before you chose a separate pump cost and build, consider if 3” x 5” plates with an integrated jack might work just as well for you 👍😉
