I'm about to try this method on primary PCAs tomorrow
Awesome advice. Thanks
400 PCA Primary 5s have been oiled, fingers are sore and hands are cramped, but now, we wait!
It helps if you have a bourbon while your oiling the chips. I did about 1000 cpc's a couple of days ago.
Pretty... but I'd strongly suggest not letting the chips touch each other while drying.
oh nooo, what will happen?
They won't dry where the chips contact each other
You seem to have spilled the Bourbon on a few of the Sunset chips, it made some weird results
Re: the girl on the beach - nice coconuts.
Am I doing this right guys?
Wow, that looks awesome! Gonna have to try that when I have the chance.
You know. I have a set of chips that need oiling and a speed cloth that needs replacing. What could be the downside of your method...I'm thinking there isn't one.
did you guys oil your GOCCs? I got them today from the factory and they don't seem to need it
As i have and play with BG or matsui chips i just put a bit of oil with a sponge and then wipe them with cloth. the process is very useful especially for used BG chips as it makes the colors to pop and get more vibrant, however i find that the chips get a bit more stickier and stick to one each other after they stay in trays for awhile.
Wait. You guys are oiling plastic and ceramic chips....... Why?
You see the BG chips fade a bit away after they are used quite for awhile... especially if the y are not new and were taken from a casino. So this is the way to get that vibrant colors back. i co not do that procedure with Matsui chips.. they look amazing all the time...
Great write up!! Thanks. I finally just finished applying custom labels to 1000 Milanos (after 3 years) that I now need to oil.
How much pressure do I need to apply to each chip to do the job right - light, medium, firm, very firm? What do you think about using 2 oily microfiber clothes, laying each chip flat on one, and applying more pressure than I could in my hand with the other? Let me know.
Without having oiled them?
Before and after PrOn!!!!
I would say medium to firm, as it will help remove some of the dust and residue from them. Just brushing them will coat them but not clean them, so light may be useless.
Very firm isn't really necessary, but in some cases it will help flatten out a sticker which is off center. Also, very firm may also simply rub the oil back off, which defeats the purpose of letting it air dry on the chip.
As for using the dual micro cloths, this could be useful in saving time on the flat sides, but won't help with the edges, which will be the most important surface to be done.
Great info OP
Glad I found this post as a newbie. I was dead set on ordering a 1000pc Milano set, received 50x$5 I got off Amazon prime because I couldn't find a sample set, and started to second guess because of how dull they looked. They definitely look like your before pics, and can't wait to shine them up after the order and make them pop. Thanks again for the info.
You are most welcome.
