    Again, I am presenting you a set that really shows all the details going on in the mold design. I hope you will be intrigued, as I have been, by the closeup look of BCC's clay mix.

    The links to my previous threads are found at the bottom of this posting.

    Everyone is invited to post his or her own collection of these chips in this thread.

    Thanks for the close-ups of the T-molds! I love these chips, I got a small heads-up setup.

    Should note that these look to be from the second run of Samurais, the original inlays were darker and some had the moire effect going on.



    Talk about being a friggin' nerd...

    These extreme closeups are so confusing. Sometimes my eyes can't focus on the mold and it looks like the recessed parts are actually raised and vice versa. I guess that's just me.:sorry:

    Thanks for some great pics Dr. John. Those closeups make me feel like I'm looking through an electron microscope. :)

    Outstanding pics Dr. John - thanks for posting them. The Samurais continue to be one of my favorite chipsets ever.

    Thanks a lot, everyone! I am happy you like my pics. :)

    Vince, I've still got a couple of sets up my sleeve. :wink:

    I should mention, though, that I have sold some of the sets in the past months.

    Still, it's 15,000+ chips, and I store them in chip cases all over my flat. :happy:
