Same method may work on the plastic you were wanting to knurl. Its done with a "star" shaped cutter that is free to rotate and offered up to the work at an angle which sets it rotating. just like a cut knurler but a lot cheaper.

Thanks for the link Jason,

Looks very interesting with the different textures than can be achieved on wood.

Bry,
If items like that interest you then try Googling "Ornamental Turning". Some hugely complex work has been done even hundreds of years ago. Also try "Geometric Chuck". There is a few books around dealing with the subject. T.D. Walshaw wrote one some years ago that's pretty good and it's still avalible thru Tee Publishing in the U.K.

Bry,
Your welcome, I forgot to mention to Google "Rose Engine". There are some shop built ones around. A few websites around that show how  to build one.

Only the cheap guns HS93, proper jobs are still done with chequering tools.
Guns its chequering, most other things its knurling.
