paul_c: I saw your post about BDI-4.08 and AMD stuff
I don't know if it's any help, but I'm using your .debs on a Duron 600
It's an older Asus A7V mobo that I had tried to use for a jukebox, but couldn't.
As long as /proc/cpu doesn't report K6 or K7, it should be OK. ('cept for the homing bug)
Any soundcard I put in it gave it fits.
* paul_c disappears for 30 mins.
CPU family: 6
model name: AMD Duron
I guess I dodged that bullet :)
Time to go hopper shopping / skip diving
Need to dig out my flak jacket and hardhat, first
haha flak jackets are good
stuck... need to get low profile #8 Socket Hex Head cap screws, that are about maybe 1" ro 1.5" in length. horray... and #8 nuts. [should have made the part bigger, so I could use what I have.
a-l-p-h-a: what are you making?
umm... nuk-E-lar bomb.
what do you mill uranium with?
I'm making an brack/spindle assembly for an rotary axis for my lathe.
uranium is soft. :)
ah I havent machined that stuff..
I hear it's nasty for your skin

I just finished the spindle portion of the thing... I'll photo it, and put it up.
I'll look after I've had my shower
'ight... in the mean time I'll create a nice backdrop for m part to be photographed. :)
I ordered a boring head today :)
uploading them now.
another 10 megs to upload.

anonimasu, that was the link, if you wanted tosee. it's going to go all together with a bracket (yet to be made) to fit on my lathe's spindle, so I can have a rotary axis.
I'll check it now
I'll be going to bed afterwards
very nice :)
good evening Seattle
paul_c, so no hold ups in customs paul_c?
wil let you know tomorrow.
oh my gosh, I must get my bike back together and working, after seeing the turbo charged things videos its a must

not much working
coding and thinking about a design of a supercharger housing, I finally found a good source for precision made gears..
and I've got a good design of the suport bearings aswell
the only problem will be that I might need ceramic bearings..
the max speed of the impeller will be about 25000rpm..
so finding any bearings might be a bit hard..
* alex_joni has also problems finding bearings, linear guides
rack and pinions, etc
we deal with skf at work so I can get bearings :9
but they are pricey
I could go for oil film bearings.. but that solution sucks.
well.. better pricy but good ;)
I have too small shaft area to support that arrangement
I'd have to make the housing in 3" alu
and that still wouldnt solve the load issue the helical gears will have..
the same oppinion as I have..
it's not for anything production wise, so the bearings can be pricey..
but I wanna design a plasma-cutter
still gotta learn a bit about mechanics
and.. the final product needs to be cheap
so I can't choose pricy guides, racks, etc
I found a good company over here..
the rails they sell are cheap..
got a link?
[11:51:09] <anonimasu> http://www.solectro.se
the expensive things are the carridges..
although not that expensive..
and they are in swedish :/
I am a distributor for some swedish machines...
is where you want to go
SPT if you know them
[11:53:11] <anonimasu> http://www.solectro.se/Products/Category.asp?SectionId=854
never heard about them
there you have what you are looking for
they dont have prices on the web though..
but if you write down their part numbers I could check the catalog for you
the carriges are about 200$
most of them
I'm not very fond of those alu-extruded profiles
they have rails aswell.. somwhere..
or do you mean thoose that you build stuff in?
hmmm... seems I found a distributor in Romania for Rollon
[12:01:12] <alex_joni> http://www.rollon.com/
I wish I could find somone that could cast me a machine base :]
in epucrete.de or somthing like that
building a stiff machine in somthing like that wouldnt be too hard
oh cool rollon is in sweden aswell
don't know how good they are thou...
if I were to build a machine from scratch, I'd go with skf..
but well, I could never afford SKF rails.
not right now that is..
skf has insane precision on their stuff :)
unmeasurable backslash in screws.. :)
although by my means that is..
I like UNILINE
what do you think of those... ?
never heard of :9
from rollon, one of their products
[12:10:56] <alex_joni> http://www.rollon.com/english/products/uniline.htm
btw, what are your precision needs?
around +/-0.1 mm would be more than enough
anything from rollon would probably be good then
anything sealed that is..
yup.. that's what I thought too
I like uniline
I would put a DC motor on one side
* anonimasu thinks about 0.003 repeatability when thinking about rails
and a encoder on the other side
I have some nice 100W motors (used for wirefeeders on the MIG stuff I have)
if you are building a large gantry you will need to drive em from both sides..
I talked to some enginner a while back about it..
CIA-temp435 is now known as CIA-9
how about a rod between the two sides
you mean and drive the both sides with one motor?
if the motor handles the load
take a look at uniline.htm
there's a sample app there
plasma cutting ;)
looks really nice
I am kind of curious about the price
it's a nice deal when it's belt driven aswell..
I wasn't so enthusiast about belt drive... but if it works ;)
for about $800 per side for a longer screw I bet it'll rock :D
I dont know if that's enough for ballscrwes..
screws are not an option
too expensive for long ones
if I want to extend the machine to 2x12...
don't think I'll find a 12m screw D:
belt drives handle dirt better then screws aswell
so I think the only thing would be rack & pinion
oh, I think they sell that long belts..
but I'm not sure how elastic they are at 12m
and what precision you get
they dont flex that much if they are dimensioned for it
not that awfully much
I was surprised on how they were on my mill.. but that's not 12m
btw, isnt thoose uniline units with belts and all included?
then they will probably be good enough up to the max length they sell them at
that's what I'm searching now
we had some belts from a company for driving a compressor on a machine... toothed belts that would handle a couple of 1000N's ;)
but the length is the problem..
the company I buy stuff from has lengths up to 2m on warehouse..
I have no idea what N's I'd need :(
err 4m for some small ones
probably not that much
since you drive both sides that reduces the load on each side.. aswell
no idea how to calculate it though...
* anonimasu neither
brb need to work a bit
ok.. later ;)

anonimasu : no im not turbocharging mine
anonimasu : oh and on a side you were saying yesterday your ball screw pitch is 2mm?
gezr: I said 5mm..
gezr: if I wrote 2 that's a typo.. :)
i was just thinking about it at work
I wasnt sure
so you get like what was that number .002mm resoultuion at 2000cpr?
I gear that 4:1
2 was my spindle hp :9
so 4 of the servo to 1 of the screw?
no.. 1 servo to a toothed belt
ah, servo one time, screw 4 times
servo 4 times screw 1 time I have tiny servos :)
haahahah, 4 servo one screw, ah okay
4:1 ratio ;)
But I dont run em on full resolution right now that gives me a too slow speed to be acceptable..
err I use the multiplier of the geckos..
it's SOOO nice to be a regular at a place you buy tools. They know me by name, and yet I don't know theirs at all. But they give me discounts, and don't charge me tax. :) I love them.
Nice old ladies that work there...
I get a quoted price from them... and when I get it, they charge me even less. :)
so far this whole bracket assembly thing, I think I've spent... around $100 bucks, in new tools, and materials and parts.
and I think $70 of that was on the worm and wormgear.
$8.75 on an drill bit... used 6" on a 3ft segment of O1 drill rod. And stock material I have kicking around.
the whole drill rod was $25 for 3ft.
got off easy at the store :)
i pretty much have to order what I may need
I love to touch stuff too
The stock that I have came with this home shop this I knew was selling.
I need to leave for a bit
I'll be back soon
so I have a Schaublin 102 lathe (cnc'd already), a crappy benchtop mill that I've converted [which I need to fix], two rotary grinders, a medium duty mig welder with ArCO2 bottle that's full, a drill press, TONS of tooling, and TONs of alumium, and brass stock. :)
all for a very sweet deal... $4.5K Cdn.
that's a good deal
I sold off the old controllers, and made my own...
oh yeah, I got tiny little air compressor which I sold off as well.
what else? hmm... gear cutters, carbide indexable turning tools, a very nice collet set for the mill. a few stepper motors... a bunch of different sized endmills.
I need a vertical mill, my little horizontal doesnt hardly ever get used
yummy gear cutters
so, all in all, a NICE hual.
yeah, I've got a sandwhich bag full of gear cutters...
i don't make gears... so I don't know what to do with them. :)
I want a 12x19" benchtop lathe...
nice thing is, I've made my money back on the toys already. :)
so everything else is gravey now... make money to buy more toys for it.
hllo, sorry I was on the pone getitng some stuff for my bike
