SWPadnos: only got 2 MPGs at the auction...
I remembered that I actually need a part, but a little too late
the hydraulic cylinder for a Johnson model J horizontal bandsaw
I got a little tooling
didn't get any hydraulics, but there were some there that went dirt cheap. everything did.
the cylinder is like $950 from Kysor Johnson
which is 3x what I paid for the entire saw
most everything. I have quite a few cylinders from various things, what size is it?
I don't know exactly
What's wrong with it? I've rebuilt a number of hydraulic cylinders successfully.
well, that's a good question too :)
I did replace the seals and hydraulic oil
I think the valve is broken or something
(it's one of those that you adjust downfeed with, and the oil gets recirculated through a no-pressure tube)
Oh, is the valve in the cylinder?
on the bottom
I would think that should be fairly simple - can you get it apart?
yes, I've disassembled and reassembled it
it's been a while though, which is part of the reason I forgot I need one
huh, so I guess it drops too fast. Seems like a valve like that would just be a small hole with a needle valve - or maybe a ball with a spring and screw to adjust the tension.
it's a needle valve, I thin
I may keep the MPGs. got two fanuc control panels with one on each, along with joysticks and buttons etc.
They had some cnc lathes there that didn't sell at $100
one roku roku vmc that didn't sell either, but it was missing some parts
hmmm. maybe it was the Jabsco coolant pump that was $1000-ish
the cylinder might have been only $500-ish
I got one of the drive cradek was looking for and some bt-40 tooling
but no dc stuff that I saw
My boss came down and bought a small mill that didn't sell - for $75!
wow - the manual is online now: http://www.dakecorp.com/manuals/Model_J
err, plus appropriate %20's
like this: http://www.dakecorp.com/manuals/Model_J%20Series.pdf
skunkworks_: I think there are a few cat 40 pieces in there - do you need them?
our big brown and sharp is 50 taper
ok. I don't even know what all is in that box - it's not all the same.
that is the fun part :)
If I had more money and a way to move stuff I'd have bought all the broken machines and sold parts and scrapped the rest!
heh, here's one that might be interesting - SWEO motion controls, input 240 volts, 54 amps, output 240 vdc 66 amps rms
SWPadnos: looks like that cylinder has a ball and spring. maybe the spring is broken or something is stuck?
I think the yoke is broken actually
it also doesn't hold up, so that's also a problem
ok, yes - one side of the yoke is broken, though it's the top part, so the head will still rest on it
you interested in that SWEO unit? looks like it is a DC servo drive
sounds a bit big ;)
and very efficient - 66A out and 54A in
yeah, it's big, but that's what you wanted right? more than 80v and 20a... it would be cheap if you're interested.
what do you think the shipping would be to Vermont? ;)
it also kind of depends on how the output voltage can be controlled - I have servos that are 160V/39A peak
yeah, I don't know about that. it weighs right about 20lbs, so I would guess shipping at ~$25
part number is 001-033-2
I'll have to look it up later - I should be laying out a PC board right now
no it's 010-033-2
me too actually
holy crap, you found one? that's great!
I just got the drawbar and all the tool changer sensors/activators working... great progress tonight
Hope everyone in channel is well and in the mood to help..........
I am wondering about getting emc running on an old mmx system
can anyone suggest a devel environment
mook: check if there's a TSC on the processor
otherwise I doubt rtai will work
yay, tool prep works
too bad ;)
are the drives still acting funky?
the only remaining drive problem is the fuse fault thing
I got good motion
just various other problems, you know how it is :-)
heh - cool - and now you may have another drive from moses>
yes, sounds like
not an exact match - but will be great to have a spare
I think the one he found is one step bigger
need to make some lunch - bbl
for exercise I've started moving iocontrol stuff to motion and I discovered something that seems to be unfinished estop functionality
on iocontrol it is message EMC_AUX_ESTOP_RESET_TYPE
with comment: // doesn't do anything right now, this will need to come from GUI
anyone knows sth about this ?
probably the comment is very old
so what is it done about estop right now is complete?
it seems to me that the message was supposed to reset estop, not generate it
and currently it doesn't
taks resets estop by changing status.io.estop
but we have estop on and off
micges: estop on is F1
and estop_reset is probably the same as estop_off currently
I'm not sure why iocontrol would need to know if estop is on or not
SWPadnos: because the HAL pins for estop are exported by iocontrol
since most actual I/O is done in HAL, using enables or whatnot
oh, well of course there's that :)
ok thanks guys
* alex_joni heads to bed
if a certain someone allows me to
automatic tool throwing arm is working :-)
grate, did u get spindle working cradek
it still faults when my A/C starts or stops
with that overvolt
what make? i know they can be very picky on voltage level in if its not right on money they will error with overvolt or phase error etc
