Can you guess what’s coming up next...

The next phase is here. As per recommendations on here I bought a relatively cheap knurling tool from Chronos. The tool posts I have for the wood lathe don’t have a square surface, so also needed to make myself a simple tool rest for a square reference surface.

So bought a 25mm diameter mild steel bar and also a 25mm square mild steel bar from the bay. So started by sawing down both bars to size, which took a while. For now I decided just to bolt them together with M12 bolts, so was straightforward enough.

So did the same with the square bar (but obviously not on the lathe)

Image

So I now have a square surface to clamp the knurling tool to.

Image

Started off just turning it by hand to see what happens, ended up trying with the lathe at low speed.

Image

I’m so pleased with my first attempt experiment.

When I get time I will be making some brass knobs from scratch for the router plane :D
