There are some really complicated calculations to set the repeating of the knurling. It goes by the diameter of the piece, the pitch of the teeth on the knurl, the depth of the pattern, and the speed of the carriage advance.

I don’t pay attention to any of them. I just do it and how it comes out is what I take. It has worked fine so far.
