The last press you buy: Period.

We designed this press with your space and portability constraints in mind. All the while, creating a press that will last you a lifetime. We kept the pressure options entirely open source so you can select the press style that works for you. For more budget friendly options, a simple $40 bottle jack can be used. If you want the best of the best, we carry High End BVA Hydraulics which come assembled, bled, and tested with pressure gauges installed. 

Our modular design makes any possible electronic warranty work extremely cheap to ship for fulfillment. Our competitors make you ship an entire press in for a simple electronic component failure or loose wire which can cost you hundreds in shipping fees.

LT2 vs LT3 Heat Controllers:

LT2 is a basic interface proprietary dual zone heat controller tuned for our presses. Simply utilize a dial and buttons to interface with the device, set your temperatures, and let it run! Only available with 110v North American Power.

LT3 is a brand new heat controller that is capable of much, much more. Record presses via Bluetooth connection to our software, receive over-the-air updates, record recipes, and track automatically calculated Platen PSI with a bright touchscreen interface.
