I have an old Odyssey C.F.L. stem that's completely stripped out and I wanted to re-knurl it. Problem is though, I don't know how to. Anybody done it before and could give some tips?

Its the pattern the knurling on the bars pressed on to your stem because your stem is softer metal.

At least someone knows how to answer politely. I wasn't aware that it's not the stem that was slipping, thanks for the info.

I ALWAYS sand the clamping area, and then take a box cutter and carve notching into the clamping area, BE VERY CAREFUL AND CUT AWAY FROM YOURSELF OR HAVE SOMEONE HELP YOU.
