That's cool. I'm sure many people wouldn't even try to do this because they'd think it was too hard, but as you've shown it's fairly easy :)

Thanks a lot Fabio,

Really interesting. I have already posted my friend about this who does a lot of 3D metal work.

Thanks again

Thanks for showing us. I have to say that is very cool. I give it 3 thumbs ups. Now if I only hand an extra hand. :D

Thanks for sharing, nice tutorial.

A tip for the bend part of the tutorial. Activate the bend tool click and drag in the top view in a straight line. You don't have to draw it very long just a little then undo and open the numeric panel and put 360 in the angle box and apply, ready.

In the very beginning I'd use the Spikey tool to create the pointy thing of the knurl and then adjust the vertex manually to appropriate position but otherwise the tut is nice.
