bonk, crashed the lathe again tonight (lightly)
little screw goes "pop", little insert flies off
cradek orders another little screw
yep maybe I should get several...
I have a couple - need to figure out what they are exactly
cradek_ is now known as cradek
Just this once .. here's the log: http://www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emcdevel/2008-10-22.txt
cradek, is this like your machine? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=200265589457
LawrenceG: close. mine is R2E3 which does not have the CRT
cool.... ohio is a LONG drive
LawrenceG: nice fake flaking on the top of the knee - I bet the machine is VERY worn
"it MAY have an issue with the control"
yea... that would be the least of the worries..... a spindle rebuild would be more than I would want to deal with
voodoo and very expensive bearings

this is more like mine
err no, mine has a normal saddle, not that wide one
here it is. http://www.bellmachineryltd.com/used_bridg_r2e3.htm
hmm... 3600lbs..... it would probably ride in the back of my 1 ton.... would just have to avoid the scales!
that can't be a good idea can it?
camper weighs about 3000 and that is the legal limit for my gvw.... corners could be fun with a top heavy mass of iron in the back
yeah you want it low. it's tippy.
not sure what it takes to get the head off (besides the four obvious bolts) - that would make it pretty safe.
at a plant with an overhead crane, it would not be too bad to get on the truck.... getting it off at this end would be a lot harder as I live on a hill... no flat place for a crane to setup and rolling it down the driveway would be REAL exciting
it has a balanced lift point at the top - you are right a crane works well
on your end, just rent a forklift, it's safest
if we ever get a sewer connection here, I have a nice flat septic field that is begging for a new shop building
jepler: it doesn't go wrong or anything, it just gives the expected error
I suspect the fix is:

if current_tool is None or vars.current_axis.get() not in tool_offset_axes:
+ if defaultsystem.startswith("T"): defaultsystem = systems
yep that fixes it
what are these? I looked for a suspicious print or puts, but didn't find it
I think I get one every time the touch off window opens
want me to commit that fix?
still waiting for my emc to build -- I apparently hadn't updated in quite awhile
how did I miss that print? it's right there
it wasn't listed in the directory.map file?
huh, how did I miss 4:00?
looks like the stg driver is missing index implementation for model 2
