Bill was it the straight knurl tool you were looking for?
That's the one I built, the diamond pattern one I bought off Ebay and that's a lot more complex.

hi John.

it was the diamond one that i was thinking of.

i just want to see if i can do it.

i jut finished a straddle knurler and i like it a lot better than the scissors tool i have been using. i have seen those like yours in catalogs, but i am a poor boy and cannot afford one. also i don't ebay.

so. if i am gonna get one i guess i have to build it.

do you think that is possible?

thanks.

peace.
billr.

It won't be easy.
the wheels are on spindles that can rotate and tilt to alter the angle the wheels sit on the work.
I'll find it tomorrow [ dark here 9.00 pm ] and take some pics of it in various diameter positions.
If it's easy to strip I'll also do an exploded view, never had cause to strip it.
