“knurling can also be used when a high precision component will be assembled into a low precision component, for example a metal pin into a plastic molding. the outer surface of the metal pin is knurled so that the raised detail ‘bites’ into the plastic irrespective of whether the size of the hole in the plastic closely matches the diameter of the pin.”
