Suggest a Knurling Tool for me?
 
I am in need of a Knurling tool for use on my Logan 11" lathe. It has a AXA toolpost. I have the two roller that typically comes with the AXA toolpost setups. I want to replace it with a scissors type that puts pressure on top and bottom rather than push against the piece and chuck.

So of course I have searched a bit and like usual found several from several different vendors. Anybody have any suggestions of one that they have used or purchased and like? Is any of them better than the others?

Makes more sense..I think you can use BXA on a 11"....A bit heavier...I'll let the more knowledgeable pass judgement...

Good to know. First time I've heard that.

My recommendation for a knurling tool is this one. We have been using them for 20 years at the high school . I did get a new set of knurls with the tapered edges.

That looks like my Eagle rock, they don't seem to come with a 1/2" shank,but this one looks good and would work with the AXA, You would have to have a BXA to hold the Eagle and a lot of extra cash

Your pix looks exactly like the ones we have . Note the big view has to be reversed, the shank is on the wrong side. :-)

Thanks guys.

Eagle Rock = Ouch! Looks great but I don't do that much knurling.

This one looks more in my range.

Thanks for the pointer.

I was looking at those pictures of the tools, it would not be too hard
to make one. More for the fun of the project than to save money.

Hi,
The Eagle Rock is the way to go.

You might want to go over to PM and put a wanted notice up for one.

That's how I got mine for a decent price.

The one at Traver's is a Chi-Com knock off, of course!
