Knurling Tool

 

Where a knurled finish is required, the knurling tool is fitted to the lathe whilst the item to be knurled is still in the lathe chuck. The two knurling wheels impart the cross-hatched pattern on the item as the work is rotated on the lathe. Each hardened wheel has the same pattern and, as the two wheels are pressed into the work, a diamond pattern is produced.

This knurled finish can be easily gripped by hand and rotated without the hand slipping. Although commercial knurling tools are available, these are limited to knurling items less than 50mm (2 inches) in diameter. This one was specially made to knurl items up to 75mm (3 inches) in diameter for a specific job.
