Slow to ship but worth the wait. The local hydraulic shop gave me the adapter to make my hand pump work. Only thing missing is a gage. I imagine that the plug a top the ram will accommodate the missing gage. Boils down to one simple thing: the better product you start with the better that you will finish with. But with no gage you only can precisely control one variable: the platen temp. The PID controller works very well with no more than one degree F variance in temp from set point. I would definitely recommend the 10ton mini: great design and decent price for what it’s capable of. But plan to pick up a gage or have one on your pump.
I've been on the market for a press for about a year. I actually settled on the 10 Ton Driptech but in the midst of COVID my patience wait for restock ran out. Ended up going with 10 Ton Mini. And let me tell you I was not regretful. Any animosity I had against my self for spending the money was gone the very first time I picked this thing up. You have to pay for quality and with DP that is exactly what you do. Not to mention seriously the best most helpful customer service I have ever dealt with. Lifetime customer here!
Thing is amazing, very glad i purchased from you guys, heats up fast and evenly, temps are correct, the hand pump works really well, presses like a champ, I'll definitely be back to order the 12 ton driptech 4x7 unit next, the rosin bags are very strong ive only blew out one and that was my fault for overpacking it, very nice unit at a very affordable price and a very well made machine compared to others on the market, very happy with my purchase, thankyou guys for coming through!
This little guy packs a punch!
It's a good size and price for beginners.
The company has good delivery service.
Works well and liked the fact that it came set up for drip tech style pressing. Only complaint is the size of the pid and that it is hard wired. Would be much more convenient if it was smaller and removable.
