  • Knurl on a mill?

    I’m thinking of trying to knurl an edge of an al part on my Bridgeport using lathe tooling. I have a share knurl tool that has a ~3/4 slot w/2 set screws
    thinking I’ll mount it to a bar in both quill and knurl on x axis.
    .200 wide. Use knee to feed in


    am I nuts!

    I did it on my Excello. Mounted the knurling tool in the vise and the part on a partially threaded shaft and that in the quill. And it worked!

          No reason it couldnt work, after all a lathe is just a mill that someone knocked over during shipping

            What is a share knurl tool? Is that a typo?

              Reckon he meant "spare" knurling tool

                Took me a second to see what you were doing - very cool! Have to remember that process..

                  Some clever methods, I now have something new to commit to memory, just in case.

                    Ok, that makes sense. I was thinking maybe "sharp," but "spare" seems more reasonable.
