[17:22:19] <alex_joni> hi all
[19:05:34] <mozmck> skunkworks_: is that you I smell?
[19:05:48] <alex_joni> lol
[19:05:56] <skunkworks_> heh
[19:06:19] <mozmck> http://imagebin.us/images/fctbd8nfwotpk69lfx.jpg
[19:06:38] <alex_joni> halui panel?
[19:07:13] <mozmck> nah, that's the panel I have with an mpg I may trade to skunkworks_
[19:07:27] <alex_joni> heh
[19:07:44] <mozmck> bad picture though.
[19:08:22] <skunkworks_> mozmck: that will work!
[19:08:44] <skunkworks_> I have the boards and such togater - will ship it out this week. you can decide if it is worth the pannel
[19:09:00] <skunkworks_> :)
[19:09:06] <mozmck> OK. If you want I'll send you the whole thing, although I'd kinda like to keep the e-stop button if you don't need it.
[19:09:10] <alex_joni> skunkworks_: you do realize you'll have to replace the feedrate override & such
[19:09:28] <alex_joni> put encoders instead
[19:09:32] <skunkworks_> we just bought a bunch of estops - so I think we are goos..
[19:09:34] <skunkworks_> good
[19:09:54] <mozmck> good. some nice switches and stuff on there.
[19:10:07] <skunkworks_> alex - the old control has been cashed in. starting fresh. :)
[19:10:20] <mozmck> alex_joni: why replace the feedrate override?
[19:10:27] <alex_joni> that's a potentiometer
[19:10:37] <alex_joni> doesn't work nicely with the NIST way of controlling things
[19:10:48] <alex_joni> (at least I assume that)
[19:10:49] <skunkworks_> actually - it was a multi-postion switch..
[19:11:03] <skunkworks_> 10 maybe.
[19:11:35] <skunkworks_> but again - long gone. :)
[19:11:51] <mozmck> looks like it may be - so are the other switches up there. they have detents but it looks like a pot on the back
[19:14:38] <mozmck> I don't know, there are four wires to each one and their labeled A, B, E, F, and there's places for G, D, and C
[19:14:47] <mozmck> maybe they are encoders?
[19:14:52] <skunkworks_> heh - I don't know if we are talking about the same thing.. I was talking about the old machine... (all I really want off of mozmck's pannel is the jog wheel)
[19:15:48] <mozmck> oh, I thought alex_joni was talking about the panel I posted the picture of...
[19:16:16] <skunkworks_> I think he was. (I wasn't) ;)
[19:16:30] <skunkworks_> but like I say - the main thing I want is the jog wheel. :)
[19:20:30] <mozmck> interesting, here's what those switches are: http://www.tosoku-inc.co.jp/english/pdf/dp_e.pdf
[19:21:30] <mozmck> digital code switch. I may want to keep some of them as well!
[19:24:55] <skunkworks_> :)
[19:29:38] <alex_joni> maybe I shouldn't have said anything :D
[19:31:13] <skunkworks_> heh
[19:31:23] <mozmck> :) If skunkworks_ wants them I don't need them. One would be neat to play with. I may have more on another panel too.
[19:32:17] <alex_joni> bbl
[19:33:11] <micges> SWPadnos: around?
