It is a trend to build your own hydraulic rosin press!

  • High Yield 
  • High Pressure
  • Real Food Grade 
  • Money Saving
  • Easy To Maintain

Why You Have To Build Your Own Hydraulic Rosin Press

Pneumatic rosin press costs about $500, and you have to buy an air compressor to work with it.
Electric rosin press costs above $1000, while pressure is smaller than a hydraulic press.
Manual rosin press is easy to use, costs you less but delivers low pressure.                               

To buy a desk hydraulic rosin press, you have to pay a lot for shipping charge.
If you build your own, after tens of times' pressing, you'll realize that you have saved money at the end.

Benefits From Hydraulic Rosin Press When Pressing Flower Rosin

Here is what people said after pressing flower rosin using the hydraulic rosin press:

"Saves a lot of money. That's the reason I got into squishing rosin, to begin with. Doing bubble hash and sift is fun but it takes time and is a lot of work. Squishing buds into rosin is quick and very effective. Not to mention, no solvents. This is a big part of why we love rosin so much.

My squish with medical cannabis cost $13/gr for rosin when buying ounces of flower at a time at $90. To buy rosin from the caregiver, it is $35/gr on the cheap end. Nearly 1/3 the price to squish your own medicine with a DIY rosin press. I would assume you could easily pay for the unit over the course of 16 grams of squished flowers vs buying rosin outright.

I am preheating for about 30 mins, I think it helps to ensure the plates are fully saturated. Also, it seems the PID is more accurate than I thought, it reads nearly spot on, maybe 2-3 F off in either direction depending on where you check the temperature on the plates."  

How To Build Your Own Special Hydraulic Rosin Press

If you have an arbor press. We recommend you our dp-rp33. It's suitable for building an arbor press with a tight budget.

Estimated Cost:

$199 for our anodized rosin press kit dp-rp33
$50-$80 for the arbor press 
In total: $249-$279

If you're not so tight on budget, we recommend you our dp-rp35 & dp-rp37.
Estimated Cost:
$100-$150 for an h frame hydraulic press at a local store. ( Harbor Freight etc)
$269-$399 for our anodized rosin press kit.( dp-rp35 or dp-rp37 )
In total: $369-$549

The cost above $1500 for a professional hydraulic rosin press is not quite as good as building a hydraulic rosin press.
