cradek: Just want to give you a further update on lathe threading. I ran 7 parts (axle spindles) on Thursday and threading is working great - I'm using a 200 ppr full quad encoder but in counter mode. It is tracking great up to 1200 rpm so far ( I calculated 1500 rpm as the upper limit) The first part I made - with 1"-14 threads came out perfect. I had a nut handy and it went on...
...smoothly. Snug, not loose, by hand. :-) I later ran into a tooling problem which is causing some tool chattering. Oh well. I'm using the Master git pull from about two weeks ago, so I think your latest change was in there.
I did run into some tool table issues when setting the tool offsets. I tried to setup a lathe tool table and when I would do a touch off to set the offset, it would say my tool type was not set to a non zero value (it was) and then it would revert to a mill tool table and dump all of my changes?? I kept trying to do it and I must have done something different as suddenly the problem went away?
Dave911: thanks for the update, that's great news
glad your lathe is working well.
if the tool table thing happens again, maybe I can help while it's going on. hard to guess what was up, after the fact...
is there a list of what packages are needed to take a vanilla live-cd install to the point where you can build emc2 from source?
awallin: apt-get build-dep emc2 pulls in everything not in the base system + build-essential for building the emc2 package.
this includes the document building stuff which you may not care to have
cradek: I'll try doing the same thing on another EMC install and I'll report back if it gets goofy again. Once I got it to go it worked properly so it might have been operator error... ;-)
EMC: 03jepler 07master * re587749359be 10/src/hal/hal_priv.h: reordering this structure decreases its size
EMC: 03jepler 07master * r3fee1eb43905 10/src/hal/hal_priv.h: the prior two changes are ABI changes
EMC: 03jepler 07master * rd48c422e2f3b 10/src/hal/hal.h: work around a gcc bug in order to properly align hal_float_t
Jymmm: you around?
or anyone else who has op privileges in #emc
SWPLinux: I'm here
he's not banned, I think he was having some kind of confusion event
must have been a network glitch
it worked the second time
