Tips and Tricks

  • Put a high temperature silicone pad or similar silicone baking pad under the bottom rosin plate. Put a pad between each NON rosin plate as well. This will prevent slippage. You are using tons of pressure. Be smart.
  • The plates may undershoot the set temperature by a couple of degrees C. This is normal. The plates will balance out to the set temperature within 10 minutes. It takes less time to come up to the set temperature in baby steps, than to blow past it and then have to wait for the plates to cool down.
  • You will notice a small temperature drop while pressing. This is normal. It will compensate for the introduction of a 'cold material' quickly.
  • Do not attach the ram of the press to CannaPlates until you have reached your set temperature. The seals on high pressure rams are not, as a rule, designed for prolonged heat exposrue.
  • Detach the ram from CannaPlates after using. Let the ram cool to 'touching temperature' before retracting completely. Making this a habit, will extend your press life considerably. 
  • Do not overtighten the K type Thermocouple. It just has to be snug. DO NOT overtighten!
  • It is not advised to change ANY of the settings on the INKBIRD pid temperature controller. It has been preset for you, to give the best rosin pressing experience.
  • This is a plug and play setup. If by chance you decide to change the settings and lose your way, I will help..once or twice.
  • DO NOT use WAX PAPER to press your Rosin.
  • Use only a high quality PARCHMENT PAPER or similar Rosin pressing paper.
  • The controller is'locked' at a max of 120C There is no reason you would need 120C to Rosin press. You start to destroy the Rosin at that temperature. Should you REALLY need a higher temperature, you can contact me and I will tell you the code to change it.
