Dude, I think your spellcheck is off a bit, you've got the word penis twice (pretty sure you meant pheno) Tytstikk didn't waste any time on that..lol You can pick up a press and plates for around $450-500 tops. We got ours from Harbor Freight for under $200 and the plates off Amazon for $250. The plates came in a case, made kinda cheap but they heat great and get the job done. The press is pretty nice, Cat uses it for a lot more than pressing buds. What kind of hash would you make to use in the Levo? Think the ISO would do for that or would it have to be dry hash? I'm pretty interested in that machine, I've had my eye on a magic butter machine for some time now but the Levo looks a lot less daunting (not as messy?) and I like the design. They sell the machine and tCheck as a combo on their website too, that's some pretty cool shit. Here's the press and plates we have, like I said, it shouldn't set you back more than $500, with shipping and all. Obviously you'd want to pick the press up in person, I'd hate to see what shipping would be for that sucker . I like to make 2 pounds of butter at a time because I use the crock pot method and its a messy, messy job. I figure if I'm going to do all that work I might as well make big batches at a time. It'll be nice to make just enough for a recipe or two instead, and not have to freeze the butter for future use. I think it tends to lose potency that way, my baked goods don't seem as strong on subsequent batches.
