About the Bump Knurl Tool Holder
Our bump knurl holder was designed primarily so customers who have CNC machines could add a knurling operation to their program, but it can also be used on a manual lathe. This holder is the same style that is used on full-sized CNC machines. It is held in position using the 3/8″ Insert Holder Tool Post (P/N 7600, not included).

Knurl size limitations with the Bump Knurl Tool
There are limitations to the knurl size and method of holding your part: Knurls from 40 TPI (threads per inch) and higher will work well on our machine. Coarser knurls from 32 TPI and lower will not work well. The exception to the rule is the diamond knurl. Because the diamond knurl is a male pattern, it can cut a larger TPI, so the 25 TPI that we offer is fine.
The bump knurl tool will handle stock diameters up to 1/2″ (12.5 mm), while it is turned in the lathe, creating a knurled pattern.
NOTE: The knurling tool was not designed for use with riser blocks.
