    Thanks this is helpful. In that case, I may have written these off too soon when they are otherwise a good fit for these chips. They fit 20 chips per row well, with a bit of room but not enough for 21. I can confirm the denominations I have fit the same (all except 25c, $25, and 25k)

    It's the "poker chip carrier 600 chip capcity with racks" on ebay. The seller said both the carrier and racks were manufactured overseas and thus could not provide a brand. Three screws in the bottom of the carrier.

    Two words: Rock Tumbler.

    Just make sure you take out the chips when exactly one millimeter of chip material has been removed.

    Don't fall asleep or you'll end up with Chinese fairy dust.

    Not that I would know such things...

    A little bit of Christmas cheer arrived today! Here are some pics before they go under the tree.

    I hope my wife likes them,

    I told her if she didn't I'd see if me and some of the guys could use them.

    it is a good clarification of the difference bin processes but to me it does not looks like the material being applied twice, and actually i dont see how an injection press would run a second cycle on a chip, it looks more to me as temperature / cycle time problem or maybe not so well maintained mold (often an issue). To me and I could be dead wrong it looks a lot like the injection of the edge material expanded over the green

    again no expert I know more of extrusion than injection and only toured a few injection plants

    IMG_2448.JPG IMG_2451.JPG Finally got time to open my chips. I only oiled the edges and in my opinion that's all they needed. Love the $500 & $1000 chip. Will have to order some Chipco racks as that is what they fit the best in. Glad I ordered these.

    Gave part of the set a cursory cleaning and label check, edge oiled it as well. I considered full oil, but it occurred to me in the batch I tested that they lose some of their friction so the stacks may end up being more prone to spillage. I don't think the difference in face coloration from a full oiling will make a large difference, but if they dull out I would consider it.

    Brilliant set, though. I wish I could get the $20s into play, but they're right there in that sweet spot between where my cash game crowd loses their nerve and my tournament set begins. Maybe a blackjack tournament would be a fun way to showcase them during some down time.

    I'd also be in, completely missed this :(

    Edit: didn't see the original post was so old, assuming we're probably too late at that price.

    Who made these chips I am guessing they are not truly clay chips?

    Not the guy in the middle. He wasn't there at that time. He's still a probationary hired in the last few weeks and hasn't received his uniform order yet.
