Jun 30, 2010 knurled knob extruder

So I have a knurled & domed knob from an old guitar. I want to attach this to the stepper motor as directly as possible. I have to cut off the dome so I can screw it onto something. or something else. the knob is meant for a 1/4" potentiometer, so I'm using a 1/4" tap to make it screw on instead of a push on knob. This worked easily, so now onto cutting off the dome I can push it through

...as I was writing this I got it all together and the frame broke before I could power up the motor... lame.

But I have a knurled wheel now, and an idler wheel to match it, more to come. Back to the drawing board...
