you got the story right. I personally have NOT used this High Five rosin press. A friend of mine owns it and has tried using it many times. It kept breaking on him, and High Five eventually decided to tell him the warranty is void because too much pressure was applied. LOL.
Luckily, he never got hurt during any of the tooth-breakings and ejections. I happened to visit his house for some dabs a few weeks ago and took these photos of his dust-gathering former rosin press.
I have used other arbor press based rosin presses, like the Medisun (which I don't recommend due to the ineffective heating pucks and barrel coil e-nail coils employed) and NEVER had any durability issues even when the press was bolted down and a LONG cheater bar was hung off the end.
