Knurling can be used for grip, for decoration, or to repair worn parts that don’t fit together tightly anymore — but how exactly do you transfer the knurl pattern onto a piece of metal without an expensive lathe setup? For small jobs and repair work, you buy a hand knurler like the K1-207 Knurlmaster from Eagle Rock.
Eagle Rock sells the Knurlmaster in one of two kits. The standard kit includes a case, removable extension handle, one set of medium-pitch straight-pattern knurls, and of course the Knurlmaster. They pack everything from the standard kit into the deluxe kit, plus they add fine and coarse straight knurls and diamond-pattern knurls.
The standard kit runs about $150, and the deluxe runs about $275.
