|20080258385||TEXTURED CHIP AND CHIP RESURFACING MACHINE - A chip, token or gaming piece having a textured pattern on either or both of its upper and lower planar surfaces and a machine for applying the textured pattern so as to reduce or prevent chips, tokens or gaming pieces from sticking together, are provided. The textured pattern can extend through to the peripheral edges of the chip, token or gaming piece to introduce air and break the surface tension on the planar surfaces. The machine can include an input collection hopper that delivers chips, tokens or gaming pieces individually to a receiver. At the receiver, a slide carriage can move each chip to a working position where dies can be pressed against the planar surfaces to imprint a pattern of indentations or grooves. After the textured pattern is applied, the chip, token or gaming piece can be removed from the working area and sent to an output hopper. A method of making the chip, token or gaming piece is also provided.||10-23-2008|
