I got one of the manufactured holders like John's a month or so ago. It is an Austrian made tool, called the Quick CNC knurling tool holder, diamond cut style. If anybody is interested, MSC carries them for around $1500-$2200 each, less knurls.

I got mine for $20.00 with a bunch of knurls. It works as John states. It is adjustable from 1/8" diameter to 10" diameter. I haven't had the need to knurl exhaust tubing, but it has done a fine job on other stock.

good morning.

thank you, Darin and Les. you did good.

i am assuming that the wheels are set at 45*. i understand that to do this requires the wheels that the little lines go all the way to the edge on. i am thinking of getting some of those wheels and trying to build one of these beasts.

i am grateful. now if i can get my mill back together, my day will be complete.

peace.
