I have just been looking at issue No288 of MEW and was intrigued by the picture on page 10 of cut knurling. I have never been able to get a good knurl with the usual clamp knurl tool and was quite taken with the quality of the knurl in the picture. Unfortunately the picture does not give a complete view of the tool and I can only assume there must be a second straight knurl wheel below the one shown to produce a diamond pattern.

Is cut knurling a better way to produce a decent knurl and if so are there any plans out there for making a DIY version. Mention was made in the article about an article in ME 4543/5 but I don't have access to those.

Thanks for that Michael, the pictures show the mechanism much more clearly. If anybody has experience of using this type of knurling tool could they comment on ease or otherwise of use and whether a good knurl is more likely than with the clamp type.
