Don't know what material you're dealing with, but chill marks are usually where two metal fronts meet and do not re-fuse completely.Greg Utterback

Dear Rick, We encounter "chill marks" in die castings or tin/lead castings from rubber molds. It is when the metal is cast too cold and doesn't flow properly leaving usually a cylindrical mark with an almost rough surface. DavidDavid Guleserian

Hi, gentlemen. From Greg and David's description, this sounds like what diecasters often call a "cold shut".
