Back down the rabbit hole:

I’d long since sold all my playable sets, and it was ridiculous that I couldn’t even host a small game if I wanted to. I saw the upcoming Presidents’ Day sale and figured I couldn’t not at least fill my 300 chip carousel with those cheapo Chipcos.
I was considering getting the $2’s to use as fracs, but they say $2. Hmm. I took a chipco I had laying around and tried to remove the denom -agressive magic eraser wouldn’t work. Bleach wouldn’t work. Short of a dremel it wasn’t going to work.
I got on eBay, looking for cheap ceramic fracs. If I got half-dollars, I could get away with only 50 of them (25 chip barrels in the carousel.) And then I found these unicorns, err elephants.

So yeah, I spent $90 on clay fracs to use with a ceramic set that I’ll pay $60 bucks for. Just as a one time thing, so I could have a small cheap playable set. This should end well.
BTW, any tips for cleaning hot stamp ASMs? because some of these are a bit filthy. I know the TSP is out.

They felt heavier than I expected, but I couldn’t find my scale, to confirm. Found it. Is this a heavier mold, or were ASM’s heavier than CPC’s?

Maybe Dawn dish soap and very warm water?

I'd like to know myself because I have little over 2 racks of some old dirty 'white' ASM hotstamps that I haven't gotten around to clean. At least you know the TSP is a bad idea for ASM chips. A while back, I tested a couple of spare ASM chips with a TSP solution (same strength used on Paulsons with no problem), but it started to dissolve the ASM chip! Glad I tested on a few spare chips first before dumping a whole rack in to soak.

I would just use warm water, Dawn anti-bacterial dish soap and a magic eraser to clean those.

Wow, I'd forgotten that TSP melts ASM's - I just knew it dissolved hot stamps. Good thing these are hot stamps!
