Anybody have suggestions for a first-time rosin press? I’ve never done a dab in my life (anything that requires a blowtorch seems a little, uh, druggy to me haha), but the past couple weeks I’ve been thinking that I should absolutely buy a rosin press. I honestly don’t know why it never occurred to me until now. Maybe quarantining got me bored. Or maybe I’m just sick of filling freezer bags with trim, putting it in the freezer and saying,”I’ll make hash out of that in a couple weeks,” only to throw it all out after it’s been sitting in my freezer for a year. I dunno.
Anyway, I’ve been researching presses for a week or two now, but I’m no closer to making a purchase than I was when I first started looking into them. In fact, I feel a little more confused than I did when I first started researching them. The first thing is, I don’t want to spend more than $600 max. Mayyyyyyybe a little more if I knew what I was getting was legit. I’d prefer to keep it in the 4-500 dollar range, though. Also, I’m pretty sure I don’t want a manual press. Seems to me like the hydraulic ones are better, but if I’m wrong, lemme know. Also, it seems like anything with plates smaller than three inches are no good? That’s just based on the dozens of reviews I’ve read of presses over the last couple weeks. Also, I really don’t want to build my own. Something that I could just take out of the box and start using would be ideal.
So yeah, I really don’t know. Anybody who wants to chime in, I’m all ears (eyes).
