          Super high quality press kit.

          I purchased the 3x5 cage kit and it does everything I need it to. Paired with a harbor freight 12 ton shop press I have quite the unit for under $500.
          Thanks again Dabpress....

          The supplied instructions are in a very small print...you'll definitely need a magnifying glass!
          Operating instructions on the temperature controller were somewhat obscure and the YouTube tutorial wasn't helpful in the least as it lacked a narrative.

          Dear Michael, I am sorry to bring the inconvenience. We are working on offering NEW user guide in future. Thanks for your comments. Best regards, Dabpress Team
          $500 in parts made a $2000 press

          Bought these to put in a 12 ton press I got for about $150. This thing works great! Easy to setup, turn on, dial in. Checked with a heat gun and the stock temp sensors were right on! 12 ton hydraulic makes it so easy to press rosin that I can do most of it with two fingers. When I gotta clean I just dial it to 110 and wipe gently with some coconut oil.

          Great product, thank you.

          So Happy With This Press

          This is the first time I ever pressed, and it was a piece of cake. Couldn't believe the yield as it was close to 25%. The puckmaker is extremely helpful and truly is perfect for the rosin bags. I left the cage at the default setting of 190 degrees and it was perfect. There is so much talk about how much exact pressure you should use and all that. A manual press has no gauge for pressure, and all I can say is that it really is not a big deal. I figured it all out on the first press. I am so glad I bought this, and the company's support is 5 star.

          Ask a Question
          • Can the top plate handle 10 -12 tons pulling down if the bolts were replaced with longer ones that reach the base like in your set up?

            We never tried that, but I consider it will be no issue.

          • is this made from 6061 grade aluminium? Dabpress dp-rp35s 3x5

            Dabpress' caged press plates kit made of 6061 aluminum and stainless steel.

          • What is the least amount I should be squishing with this set up?

            1g material also works great with this unit. As usual, We recommend 3.5g - 28g
