damn i never took a pic of it
how much you sell the boxes for?
I haven't done a show in a while now
depends on how it came out how i made it
anywhere from $6 to $40 depending
some stuff is pretty standardized
like my CD boxes I get like $15 for those
the only hting i really make any money on is garden signs
they're the gold!
nope i do them by hand as of now but someday I want to do them CNC
hmmm ... nice box joints
oh here's that bench
[00:04:04] <pfred1> http://188.8.131.52:10000/wood/projects/show14/s14-005.jpg
that's ripped and glued pallet stringers the top of it
here's signs http://184.108.40.206:10000/wood/projects/show10/s10-009.jpg
in the trade we have a technical name for that sort of product
we call it "Shit on a Stick!"
and man does it sell!
you need a cnc router :)
you can turn one pallet into about %40 making signs out of it
so the next time you see some rat pallet on the side of the road just think what you're really looking at is a $40 bill
robin_sz yeah but i got mad IPM :)
I was thinking of the lettering
could still make it "hand made" looking
but LOTS quicker :)
yeah but can you make one in 5 minutes?
a CNC will beat hand routing in speed every day
I can't imagine how well unless it's a $20,000 machine
and you can be nailing up one sucker whil the next is being made :)
my machine was basically $1000
I move the bit as fast as you can and still cut the wood
600 ipm was easy
an I got 200lbs of thrust
here was my other Hulla Hoop http://220.127.116.11:10000/wood/projects/show10/s10-011.jpg
I sold tons of those planters!
some women would buy them 4 and 5 at a time!
seen the ones made out of lots of 4" sections of 1"x3/4" ??
that's the trick you can make whatever but it has to sell
[00:14:12] <robin_sz> http://www.timberworkshop.co.uk/images/horseshoe_wall_largepic.jpg
so far the only things i ever found that are profitable are the signs the planters and these irnaments I make
how's it put together with pneumatic nails?
well last i checked pneumatic nails don't grow on trees I'd have to get a lot for such an item
cheapest nails you can get
heck there got to be about $2 in nails in that thing!
robin_sz 200 lbs of thrust?
Jymmm: yeah. easy.
do the maths
ok, 5Nm stepper motor
in oz's ?
5mm pitch ballscrew
fsck knows in ozs .. 7, 800 ...
robin_sz and you built this machine with $1000?
pfred1 he bought parts off the back of a truck =)
5N on the end of a 1m bar right?
Jymmm or he had a crowbar in his hand while he was shopping!
1 rev turns the end of the bar through??
* robin_sz continues the maths lesson
Jymmm yeah that's how I meant he was using it to jimmy the back door!
2 x pi metres right?
so ... 5N turning a distance of 6.28 metres in one rev
but our ballscrew converts that to just 5mm of linear motion
metric how can people use that stuff?
so the force must be 6280mm/5mm times greater right?
pfred1 no lcue
it makes for horrible hardware too!
or about 1200 times ok?
metric threads suck!
1200 x 5N = 6000N,
that enough for ya?
robin_sz now in imperial
robin_sz yeah in real measurements not them kiddie metric deals
what is the imperial unit of force?
* nevyn coughs at yanks
for small ones.
pfred1: wrong. tose ar both torque
nevyn he said force!
no that's pressure.
last time i drove a car with 400 foot pounds of torque it seemed pretty forceful to me!
12ga at someones head
fuck imperial get with the real world
yeah where crap all sucks!
UNC is such a nice spread of sizes
I seen and used metric hardware it doesn't compare
well, its "pounds force" .. the force exerted by a mass of 1 pound under gravity
thats where the trouble starts
pounds for force, pounds for mass
robin_sz gravity is pretty common where most of us are
soon you start putting the wrong ones in equations and screwing up
thank god my country has pretty much gotten out of the manned space mission program
you reckon? did you see the bad calc that guy did on geckodrive?
tried to calculate the power required to move a cutting head on a gantry
pounds (force) x feet per minute / some constant
gives power in watts
watts are cool
but .. he used the pounds mass of the head
hint: if the pounds force required to move it are the same as the pounds mass .. your slides are shot :)
he used the weight of the gantry in his calculation?
something like that
that is just a dumbass
then he dicided the calcultations for power required must be different vertically and horizontally
hrm.. can you cut hard things with a gantry style mill?
because its easier to push a car than lift it ...
like stainless etc?
and all becuase you use pounds for force and mass :)
or do you need a fixed head type mill?
or a stiff gantry
robin_sz wait a sec.... it does require more power to lift a Z axis than it would to move an x axis
assuming not conterwighted
Jymmm: maybe .. but the calculatins are EXACTLY the same
oh, yeah, formula is, results won't be though.
so long as you use the FORCE exerted by the thing and NOT its mass in each one
machines still need mass
I'm still trying to figure out a way to counterbalance the Z axis actually.
this guy used the mass and decided mariss was wrong to apply the linear motion calculatins as "this was lifting, not pushing" :))
Jymmm helium baloons are always a festive touch
pfred1 Tried, take too long to fill 832 of em
I was going to point out to him that the force to push a car might be greater than the force to lift it .. but it seemed unfair :)
pfred1 and no, I'm not building a CNC baloon filler either!
Jymmm go to the circus and hire some clown to do it
pfred1 what ya doin tomorrow?
robin_sz: particularly if the parking brake is on?
robin_sz are you mucking with me ?
no, in what way?
or are you talking in general calculation, not CNC wise.
oh, are the calculations for cncs not govenrend by the laws of physics then ;)?
horizontal motion requiring more force than vertical.
on wet grass it's easier to pull a car that's trying to pull away from you than one that's just parked.
could do ...
I'm talking a bleach pump in the trunk and 9.9s at the track!
Jymmm: it depends ... for a car with the brakes on, it could take more to push it than lift it
for a Z axis going DOWN it might be asier than X
robin_sz No, no, assuimg free wheeling
why assume that?
what about a mill with tight gibs??
or pushing a Z axis down?
yep gravity helps out ...
or works agaisnt you
so long as you use the *force* required in your calcs they always work
in X it s just friction ...
in Z its friction - (mass x g) going down
and friction + (mass x g) going up
really its the same in X too
the general eqaution would be
counterweighted Z is the bomb.
resultant force = friction + mass x g x sin <angle>
for X the angle is 90 degrees ... so m x g x 0 ...
the car one is a good one to do, 'cos someone allways comes out with "it cant be easier to lift than push, becasue the friction coefficient cant be greater than 1" ...
robin_sz they never seen ice spikes!
its a race, on an ice track ...
motorbikes with spikes
I seen motorcycle ice racing
this is different
each bike has a rope on the back
and a skier :)
or as the crowd likes to refer to them a victim
it wwas in one of the UK bike papers once, done in sweden I think
I've drank some of their ales I can see what would drive them to such activities
when people tell you friction can't be greater than 1 ...
alwys ask them howcoem race motorcycles lean greater than 45 degrees in corners :)
they go to about 60 degrees
03gspy 07bdi-4 * 10emc2/src/emc/motion/emcstepper.c: GPL notice added
nevyn it maybe be the bomb, but I still haven't come up wit a good way of doing it!
Jymmm: hang a weight on a pulley which is attached to a post on the gantry and connect the head to the other side of the pulley
SWPadnos: I wanted something more adjustable, not just adding weights to compensate for the load.
well - that's a counterweight...
ok, fine... counter balance then.
or counterbalance - it doesn't matter.
SWPadnos dont make me come up there and hurt you in person now!
You need something that won't change significantly during operation
you know what I mean damnit!
nope - I may not :)
a lever can work, but will require a larger work envelope.
maybe a threaded rod with a fixed wieght that moves in and out to balance the laod.
it might not be a single lever
maybe a pully and a lever
isn't the more pulleys there are the load changes?
or the amount of force needed reduced I mean.
hey, maybe a round disc of some sort.
attaching a weight or weights in various areas on the the disc as a counter balance.
Are you trying to compensate for the cutting load or the weight of the head?
that's a constant, so a weight should work fine
I'm not putting a 3 lb counter weight on it.
or if I change heads, if adjustable I dont hav eto keep a set of weights around.
Is the head only 3 pounds?
someone's richard is 3lbs! holy crap that's must be huge!
well - you want to counterweight something
that's generally only necessary for large things, like the knww of a Bridgeport, for example
for a 10-pound milling head, if you need counterbalancing, then your Z-drive isn't strong enough to actually push a mill into a workpiece anyway
oh! he's trying to build his own mill.
A-L-P-H-A z axis on a cnc router
(well - 10 pounds may be a bit mush, but you get the idea)
rear hatch nitrogen spring
bah... think balance beam scale
like at the Dr's office
sure - you can do that, but you'll need bigger motors on X and Y because of the extra weight
you'll also need extra room on one side of the machine, to account for the arm sticking out for the weights
just a simple spring to slightly counteract gravity and push up to take out any extra backlash that may exist
you can do that - and it can even be adjustable with a nut for tensioning the spring
You should look at how the clockspring works on a Bridgeport
that would do what you want
got camera and a bridgeport?
and I don't want to take it apart anyway ;)
see how you are...
I know - I'm a prick
here's how it works"
SWPadnos but just a little prick
no - 3 pounds, remember?
there is a spring steel band that's wound around a post.
it has many windings - like 20 or so (I think - I haven't disassembled it)
well, whats taking you so long!
gezr shut up you!
I'm a prick
we had the goose neck worm gear
's holding pins snap on a guy, that was interesting
get the crain, get the crain, get the crain
he wasn't in the way, but still,
look at this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=25290&item=7502776365&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW
think about that middle bit being wound up tight around the screw that drives the Z axis
not so tightly that it can't be moved any more, but enough to provide tension to cancel out gravity.
(on the head - not in general :) )
that's it anti-gravity!
* SWPadnos slaps pfred1
that's what I was trying to avoid :)
how about really powerful magnets in repulsion?
* Jymmm kicks pfred1 into outter space! How's that for anti-gravity!
Jymmm: do you see how that works?
like them executive desk gizmos
Jymmm: you could probably approximate that for small loads with a 30 foot tape measure
SWPadnos: Yeah, I understand, but I'm think more along the lines of a 4" disc with a lever on it,
the dic wouldn't be mounted center, it be offset.
hmmm - the tape measure idea is a great one
this is small, adjustable, and lightweight
replace the 30' with a 24' tape ? lol
might work ;)
actually - if you take apart a tape measure, it has a clockspring in it to retract the tape
tape on a CNC machine? so wrong.
it's adjustable, too
Jymmm, whynot just build it out of lego blocks? hehehe
well - making a CNC machine for <$500 is also wrong, but who am I t oargue?
actually, I think that would really neat.
A-L-P-H-A only if you put you hand on the table!
Duplo - they're bigger
SWPadnos, you're SWPadnos. :)
OK - no argument here
but - how do you know I'm not my wife? She's also SWPadnos
I can see it happening with a shit used mill, and used steppers, with DIY drivers.
SWPadnos, do you have a penis?
yes - 3 pounds
so then you're SWPadnos.
SWPadnos: does your husband have a penis?
ha - that's the question
one in the hand is worth 2 in the bush!
hold on - let me get my wife to answer that
I'd rather have one in the bush than in two hands
does she wear the pants?
but is SWPadnos' wife the man or woman of the house?
SWPMBO - so shut up
I seriously wonder how much money I put into CNC stuff.
400 so far
I was just adding that stuff up - it's scary
I've spent probably $6K so far... probably more... but I bought out a shop for DIRT cheap... so that's how I've spent so little.
yeah - I had expected to spend around $6k or so - it's up to around $11k as of the end of last year
and probably another 1 or 2 this year
SWPadnos, but I've got TWO cnc machines!
SWPadnos how much have you made back though?
$0 back so far
I haven't finished the CNC conversion yet
oh... I've probably made $2K so far.
from the products...
I've got a big Johnson though
www.lloydleung.com/gallery some photos.
SWPadnos tell your wife that when you have to go rent out your 3 lbs penis
SWPadnos or your husband, who ever you are!
I've got a small bandsaw (5x7), mill 7x26, lathe 8x24 or so.
Ah - I've got a big bandsaw (11x18), and a Bridgeport milling machine
no lathe yet
SWPadnos, but I bought all that for $4.5K CDN.
lathes are essential
I want all three, but no stinking room for them all
[02:50:36] <Jymmm> http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/Displayitem.taf?itemnumber=37151
I also went pretty wild with the measurement tools, so I have a surface plate, indicators, 0-6" micrometer set, 0-6" depth micrometer set, 0.0005"/ft level, etc.
+ an air compressor + two bench grinders + 1.5ton arbor + drill press + end mills + lots of stock + two old laptops + two CNC drives...
Jymmm do yourself a favor try to avoid harbor freight
umm... what the heck else did I get?
I weould have bought one of those (they're the best deal for a small saw, including delivery), but the first thing I needed to cut was an 8x2 piece of aluminum for a motor mount
pfred1: I know I should, but I just can't
pfred1 $180 for a bandsaw like that sure beats a hacksaw
Most HF tools are pretty crappy, but as long as you realize you're not getting the same quality for the lower price, it's OK
Jymmm yeah their 4x6 bandsaw is OK I have one
the thing is if you look around you can get used cheaper
pfred1 what, ebay?
A-L-P-H-A: need to get rid of a bench grinder?
nah they're all crooks on ebay
actually, used often ends up being more expensive due to shipping
unless you can find a local used piece
SWPadnos, I'm in CANADA... if you want to for the shipping, I've got no issue.
I have a hack saw :)
(which is nearly impossible where I live)
if someone puts something up on ebay they think they have something and they want top dollar for it
I'm gonna make a pully for it, and use it as a spindle motor.
A-L-P-H-A: I can drive over - I'll buy you a waffle
(no oysters though - too rich for my blood these days)
SWPadnos, to Toronto? sure.
how about CRAB at the same place?
heh - Nine of Cups, not Rodneys
pfred1 here's the thing, if I buy used and it's fubar'ed I'm stuck with it, if I buy HF, there's at least a warranty AND a return policy if it's not what I expected to be.
well - there is the second-best place down the street (can't remember the name)
Jymmm have you returned stuff to them or dealt with them?
pfred1 a couple of small items.
pfred1 there's a store locally
Jymmm i bought a hydraulic hose off of them and it didn't come with a chuck after a while i just gave up with them
[02:56:23] <A-L-P-H-A> http://www.fast-autos.net/pontiac/pontiacsolstice.html
tell me that isn't a sexy car. :D thinking about it.
for anything big and inexpensive, you shouldn't count on that - the shipping will eat up any refund you might get
SWPadnos: That's why you ALWAYS pay using a credit card =)
sure - but if you receive it, they did their job
SWPadnos not necessarily
you can still return it, but the policy almost always says that you pay the return freight
SWPadnos if they ship a broken item and give you slack about it, call the CC company and tell them, they'll reverse the charges and investingate.
so they refund your charge in full, but you had to schlep a 100-pound behemoth to UPS and pay for the shipment back to them
sure - broken I can understand, but "I decided I don't like it" is a different story
SWPadnos: I'd ask them to send a calltag and I'll pay the cost I originally paid.
or it's a total piece of crap and doesn't work
get the shipping under their acnt
well - that can work
SWPadnos: It's easy to say "Didn't work as advertised"
acting ignorant can have it's advantages.
heh - I'm a bad actor (especially at being ignorant)
Jymmm if there's one thing I have learned in life anything wirthwhile doing is NEVER easy!
SWPadnos just say as little as possib;e, that'll get you 90% there.
pfred1 I'm only talking exceptional cases.
I bought a lot off of Harbor and most of it I wish i had the money back today
we know the tolereances on HF are way out of line, but it's not stated in their manual.
it all seemed like good deals at the time
good money after bad
It's easy to call the CC Co and say "It's really bad, the thing wobbles all over the place".
and they won't fix it.
well wobble to us is .010" =)
the operator will think like 4" wobble
gotta run gouy, see you later
guys, I mean
SWPadnos is now known as SWP_Away
enco has acme rod on sale, I just wish I had a way to turn the ends =(
make a cylindrical grinder
you just have two grinding wheels as far apart as what you want the finished diameter to be when it falls through it's done
i sirta get it, but I don't
heck you could probbaly not even have to power the second wheel just let it freewheel
the one grinder will drive the stock
but it never drives it to full speed :)
rotate and grinding the stock at the same time?
yup that's how cylindrical grinding works
when you say grinder, I'm thinking bench grinder.
you need 3 points to centerless grind, grinding wheel, workrest, and regulating wheel
gezr yeah but it is pretty simple to setup to get good results
pfred1 : yeah, if everything is good and fixed position
and no fingers get to play down there
a rotating grinding wheel just does some amazing stuff
ive ran a centerless for many a hours
I make custom washers on nails or what have you
just get it onto that wheel it whips it down!
then after I left that shop I guess they got in a nice big twin grip one, oh its sweet
who cant turn the end of threaded rod?
Jymmm, do you have a URL for enco, I need an acme rod and nut.
www.useenco.com I think is there site
oh yeah the dash
Jymmm yeah if you do a little setup I'm sure you can get acceptable results for turning down the end of a rod
amaze your friends kinds of results
EldonB46: $3.49 for 1/2-10 @ 3'
Jymmm : I can turn a few ends for you if you want
gezr I appreciate it, but I think the shipping would kill me
just have the rods shipped to me and Illship them to you
how many are you talking about?
Just Kidding =)
if you need a few done, I dont mind doing it
I like the grinding idea, but I can't figure out the stock holder so it's level.
Jymmm use a level?
heh, I mean as it's grinding
the grinding wheel sort of sucks the stock to it
heck you could probably lay it in a piece of angle iron
but setting it up in bearings would be the ideal
G'Night gezr - and thanks for the offer.
Jymmm grinding can be sort of magical
what'd gezr offer?
to grind down the ends of some acme rods
A-L-P-H-A your ass on a platter
ok, so get two bench grinders and align them face to face?
but how do you prevent the stock from sliding all over the place?
well a true centerless grinder uses 2 grinding wheels but it'd probably work with any idler
you'd have to have something to thrust it in place
any piece of scrap
OH! so I'm feeding the stock into the grinding wheel like I would a planer?
no you're letting it run along the wheel
the wheel's friction makes the work turn
the face or the side of the wheel?
but the work never keeps up with the wheel so it gets ground down
centerless grinding is magic
it's one of those htings that just works
so (lets say ) I make the wheels almost touch each other, I lay the stock on between the wheel?
well like gezr said you should have a rest under it
(ascii art aint gonna help here)
yeah wait a sec
Jymmm, why not just turn them? damn... you're making a $500 machine... how much accuracy do you honestly expect?
A-L-P-H-A turn them using what?
Jymmm, oh... I thought you were using a lathe with grinders.
A-L-P-H-A: No lathe availabel, thus the delima
heh it looks like a guy with funny glasses on
it does, dont it =)
so at the things spinning in CW and CCW (left, right)
but if just one of those big circles was a grinding wheel it'd rip down that piece in the middle
the one could just be an idler a commercial centerless grinder they're both grinding wheels time is money
ok, if theres a tool rest, what height would I set that too?
above the centerline of the grinder
Jymmm, if you intend on making a production run of these for the future... why not just invest in some proper tools?
don't want the piece ot suck through
tho when they make threaded rod I think they just let the stuff fall through
when it falls through it's done
well... I do machining, but I charge a modest $10/end. someone paid me $60 to machine 3 ends...
Now, Do I need fences to the stock doesn't keep feeding itelf thru?
before you go into production yo ustill need a prototype
err 3 rods... to turn 12.7mm to 6mm.
Jymmm just setup a sloppy rig with some scrap you have to see if you like it and if you think you can achieve the accuracy and control you need
all i know is i love to let stuff rip on grinding wheels
pfred1 are you using striaght bench grinder wheels and stuff like that?
I don't have anything else
ok, fair enough =)
I'd get a surface grinder long before I'd get a centerless grinder
surface grinders are bad assed!
and yo ucan't fake those!
surface grinders go for cheap localy at auctions.
be the bandmaster
just moving them would probably cost more than the machine itself. :/
I used to run manual surface grinders
If I could find those dumb insert bearing I wouldn't need to.
A-L-P-H-A call a towing service that has a flatbed they're reasonable
and the guys on them trucks are nuts they'll get it moved
pfred1, I don't even know how to use them... could you CNC a manual one?
I doubt it
grinding is feel
CNC isn't big on feel feedback usually
light passes... just to do more passes.
once i got a dresser I was rebuilding dead on but it was just dumb luck
girls who wear glasses have really tight asses!
pfred1... yeah...? could you still use one to do that?
pfred1, so... why couldn't you still CNC it?
having run a surface grinder I can't imagine how one could be CNCed but I don't have that much imagination I guess
well you're constantly dressing the wheel
so there's no reference
you have to look and listen to come into contact
how do CNC surface grinders work then?
that the appearance is important
I don't know
hmm... I'll figure that out later...
I suppose you could make a machine to do it but I still don't think union machinists are so expensive as to make it worthwhile
grinding is the pinnacle of toolmaking
the place where i worked they tried to make a CNC grinding wheel dresser it never happened
* Jymmm dont think that anythign todo with clothes.
I worked for J&S Tool the inventers of Fluid Motion Grinding Wheel Dressers
pfred1... how often to you have to dress the wheel?
whenever you mount a wheel or when the surface starts to glaze
dress a wheel == get rid of gunkies?
true it up too
Jymmm: make it all square.
we'd dress a lot
wouldn't coolant flush away the gunk?
nevyn heh our dressers could dress a wheel to any radius or angle too!
yeah Henry wasa genius
his dresser I don't think anyone fully understood it
not even him!
I dont think you mean one of these http://images-eu.amazon.com/images/P/B0001K9S5M.02.LZZZZZZZ.jpg
I try to find a pic of one
don't evne waste your time with a star dresser
use industrial diamonds
for a home shop grinding wheel it's fine.
you can get industrial diamonds pretty cheap
hey they're still in business?
[03:58:16] <pfred1> http://www.jstoolco.com/wheel_drssr/wheel.htm
that's a wheel dresser
whats something like that cost?
heh you don't want to know!
back when I worked with them the little one went for like $4,700
just rebuilding one was $600
I guess they stopped making their downholding clamps
the chinese put them out of business
Workholding clamps by J&S Tool can't be beat when it comes to power holding, low profile design, and dependability.
yeah then how come the clamps don't have their own webpage?
I should have grabbed tons of those clamps before i left
man they're like candy
can never have enough!
I thought that was sex
clamp sex ?
well how much sex can you have?
might need a couple IV's but....
for me it's the chafing
things get raw after a while
yeah, females do tend to dry up a bit.
I can't believe these guys are still in business
* Jymmm just had this dry female conversation yesterday
wow here's a way to wear out your carbide faced micrometers! http://www.jstoolco.com/wheel_drssr/instructions.htm
eh, time for Coach Carter now =)
* cnc_wright crickets chirping
* Jymmm grabs the can of RAID!
So someone is still awake
it's 2141 here.

TORONTO! Center of Hell
I got a new mobo and a celeron 2.4ghz today and rebuilt the linux box for the nth time
Just testing it out
you're just affraid of our liberal freedoms.
celery chips... :( I've never liked them.
Much better than the old PII 450
Toronto has nice lil parks all over the place, that I like.
green space is awesome here.
every neighbourhood has one withing 5 minutes walking distance.
and CN Tower is cool.
of not 5 minutes walking, 5 minutes driving.
I hate parking though... it's an arm and a leg for clubbing.
does 1/2-10 acme seem too tight a thread for a cnc router?
By tight do you mean thread pitch?
I don't have a feel for this stuff yet but I would think it depends a little on how fast you can spin the screw.
10 tpi = .1 lead right?
I would suspect so.
cnc_wright, inverse of TPI = lead.
the current screws on my mill are .2" lead
5 turns to go 1 inch
I made up spreadsheet where I could tweak variables like screw rpm and thread pitch.
