    i am looking for a piece of this diamond knurl sheet, can't seem to find the correct size. It was used on a star trek rifle

    Anybody know where to get it or even better have a spare piece?

    thanks,

    Marc

    Marc, if you're just looking for a tiny piece of it, like the size of the piece in your picture, go look at DVD or CD cases. Hardshell cases. There are plenty out there that have a very similar pattern on it.

    It's actually very similar to the pattern on the superman returns cape. it can be machined with a v-groove bit pretty easily, if you know someone with a cnc router or mill.

    Silly question, isn't this the "extra crispy" pattern on the rising site for a TOS P1?

    I have a couple of large "Fast and Furious" RC cars for parts which have a similar pattern on the undercarriage. Each diamond measures about 3/32, compared to the 1/8 on your sample. I saved this part of the cars specifically for the knurl pattern. You might find the same or a closer pattern on similar products.

    That's what I was thinking when I saw the pictures and suggested vuntage ice cube trays.
