[00:01:12] <chr0n1c> ;)
[00:01:15] <skinnypuppy34> Mentioning icemakers has anyone made a vortex tube type chiller?
[00:01:22] <dmess> that sorta stuff is fixable/makeable... pics??? drawings??
[00:01:32] <dmess> si
[00:01:33] <JymmmEMC> skinnypuppy34: that's exactly what I'm repairing
[00:01:34] <chr0n1c> i used a vortex tube chiller on my milltronics machine
[00:01:38] <chr0n1c> it was awesome
[00:02:03] <chr0n1c> it kept a-514 plate that would be glowing red otherwise as cold as ice
[00:02:19] <skinnypuppy34> Look pretty simple had thought of making one for a bearing or pin shrinker
[00:02:22] <dmess> SWEET
[00:02:26] <chr0n1c> i was cutting it with 1" carbide insert cutter at like 50 IPM
[00:02:55] <dmess> that dont impress me...
[00:02:58] <chr0n1c> full diameter of cutter... .375" deep
[00:03:23] <chr0n1c> chips that would knock you down if they hit you
[00:03:24] <chr0n1c> lol
[00:03:28] <chr0n1c> but i am a little guy
[00:03:32] <dmess> 53 mm at 300 IPM.. was my snake oil salesman show
[00:04:12] <dmess> turned a 1500 lb block to chips in 4 hrs
[00:04:25] <chr0n1c> interesting.. i think the job i was running was for linkbelt
[00:04:30] <skinnypuppy34> With one endmill?
[00:04:30] <dmess> just for SHITS AND GIGGLES
[00:04:43] <dmess> inserted cutter
[00:04:47] <skinnypuppy34> aah
[00:04:59] <dmess> no insert changes..
[00:05:01] <chr0n1c> carbide lasts forever if you chill it with the vortex coolers
[00:05:22] <chr0n1c> *and don't crash the machine
[00:05:28] <dmess> we rocked the cement off the undergroung garage though
[00:05:35] <skinnypuppy34> ;o)
[00:06:29] <dmess> this shite had 34 layers of coatings... ii was running 500-575 rpm.... .100-.120 feed per tooth
[00:06:56] <skinnypuppy34> I would have liked to have seen that
[00:07:30] <dmess> and telling stories of reviving ALL the low RPM high torqee machines in existence
[00:09:16] <dmess> CMTS 2000 i believe... the MAZAK booth next to us tried to show off and pull MY crowd only to blow a belt.. stall an8 " face mill and smoke everyone away.... I went for lunch...LOL
[00:10:15] <skinnypuppy34> HAA
[00:10:39] <dmess> Hitatchi cutter.. FYI... there is an equivalent TOSHIBA variant.... FEED MILLS
[00:11:07] <dmess> the harder the material the better..
[00:11:42] <dmess> heat all goes in the CHIP
[00:12:42] <dmess> i had girls askig for chips to make earings.... caus after all no matter how you rolle them they were 6's and 9's...
[00:14:11] <dmess> still keep samples.... to show salesmen... Can you make THAT???
[00:14:12] <skinnypuppy34> My 'artisan' neighbor likes me to keep the pretty stainless curls
[00:15:33] <skinnypuppy34> Hair for these freekish blacksmithed figures with porceline doll heads..
[00:15:52] <dmess> i used to have a 45 gallon drum of used inserts as my open door policy..... salesmen drooled in that one.. but there were alot of broken dreams in it to
[00:16:59] <dmess> these days.. i just fix screw up....
[00:17:32] <dmess> ANY-ONE's screw-up.... appperantly...
[00:22:44] <dmess> had to rigger-nig a jig to grind a few nose casings from china recenty... took way too much brain processing power for what they were worth in $$$.... but accomplishing the IMPOSSIBLE.... is PRICELESS
[00:25:20] <skinnypuppy34> They can't all be sweet jobs ... least not here anyway
[00:26:01] <dmess> but ALL i deal with are the screw ups others CANT/WONT fix...

[02:00:03] <toast> perfect for any small hobby parts
[02:00:20] <SWPadnos> ir for whole ISS modules
[02:00:23] <SWPadnos> or
[02:00:34] <toast> i saw "metsa"

[02:03:59] <SWPadnos> that lathe is slightly longer than my house
[02:04:22] <Ziegler> 0_o
[02:18:49] <toast> toast is now known as toastydeath
[03:28:26] <toastydeath> i am getting projects at work soon
[03:33:29] <toastydeath> like, true prototypes
[03:33:41] <toastydeath> and also difficult measurement problems
[03:33:43] <toastydeath> hooray!
[12:20:27] <CIA-22> 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/utils/ (meter.c scope.c): these components did not call hal_ready()
[12:27:42] <steves_logging> steves_logging is now known as steve_stallings
[13:19:24] <The_B> hey cradek, please have a look at http://wigen.net/ttt.patch for preliminary newline support in ttt
[13:32:01] <steve_stallings> steve_stallings is now known as steves_logging
[13:58:25] <cradek> The_B: it looks excellent except maybe it should split at an actual linefeed, not at the literal characters \ followed by n
[13:58:53] <cradek> truetype-tracer "line 1
[13:58:55] <cradek> line 2"
[13:59:19] <cradek> or maybe it should split at argv: truetype-tracer "line 1" "line 2"
[14:02:07] <cradek> the second case is just done with a for loop
[14:02:20] <cradek> the first one I'm not sure how to do: wc == '\n' is probably not right
[14:12:15] <cradek> maybe the right test is wc == btowc('\n')
[14:16:54] <The_B> cradek, didn't think of not using \n when i did it, but yeah, do it the way you want it
[14:18:55] <cradek> the wc == btowc('\n') test seems to work
[14:19:25] <cradek> I'll see if I can figure out how to test a multibyte encoding again...
[14:21:18] <The_B> well good night, let me know how you go
[14:27:34] <cradek> hey I bet we're not thinking big enough. if it would read from stdin, you could easily send it a whole block of text
[19:03:30] <CIA-22> 03jepler 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/hal/drivers.lyx: updates from Peter Wallace (http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.distributions.emc.user/4007/focus=4036)
[22:34:38] <tomp> the 'orchestra control' is pretty amazing http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWfN7V_ImKo i think xemet pointed it out. the vid has a robot reproducing handwriting http://www.orchestracontrol.com/Home/tabid/36/Default.aspx
