the only problem with fest being on is that irc goes dead :}
festcam appears to be stuck again.....
i have hardy and I loaded emc afterward, how do I get battery status?
internet went down at the fest. (still down)
skunkworks: how are things going there?
Great. There should be a video soon of cradeks 5 axis machine physically doing thishttp://youtube.com/watch?v=_tA-W7nTNSc
internet at the hotel is a bit sketchy too ;)
one more time http://youtube.com/watch?v=_tA-W7nTNSc
Are there any video of the motor mount machining or cradek's 5 axis running the sphere?
als: no. we recorded a video of the sphere yesterday but the internet has been unavailable at the shop so it hasn't made it online.
looking forward to it
* anonimasu too

BogJohnT: your last machine is plasma right ?
BigJohnT: your last machine is plasma right ?
what kind of THC do you have ?
none yet, I'm using a floating head with a drag tip
still no contact from fest?
crap. rutex is out of stock on the thc stuff.'
what stuff anonimasu
all of it..
even the circuit boards.. are out of stock
so rutex is for commercial plasma and oxy systems?
they are the only ones I've found that sells the sensors
I didnt look too much as I saw them before..
my sensor supplier dosent for sure
hmmm, they have a voltage divider...
not in stock
ask rugdallue about building one :P
the thc for oxyfuel is a capacitive sensor
I have a set of schematics for one
I think he ended up buying a comercial system because he couldnt get rid of the hf noise
that's why I bought a Hypertherm...
* anonimasu nods
brb have to start the mill up
* anonimasu does oxyfuel because he's plasma is too smal
I've been cutting some 40mm sheet metal :)
40mm is oxyfuel land for sure
mine is rated for 30mm severance
as I understand it now severance is a french word for really ugly cut
I cant remember the plasma we have what it cuts..
but it's not 40mm
the torch I have on the oxyfuel is rated to 500mm
"anonimasu: the torch I have on the oxyfuel is rated to 500mm" - How many O2 cylinders do you have to keep hooked up at one time foe a 500mm cut?
Still no modem at fest?
SkullWorks_PGAB: I dont know :)
SkullWorks_PGAB: it's still considerably cheaper then plasma for the amount i cut per year
Does anyone know why emc would freeze if you have a tool call?
does the computer freeze or only the emc?
Yeah, just had dinner...
Sitting on a nice terasse
me too, near the bosphorus
acemi: watching the game?
İ'm not interested in football
turkey did a nice job so far
there is nobody in the streets now
all are watching the game
alex_mobile: what team do you want to win ?
micges: no idea
oh, forgot to close my mobile ;)
micges: probably croatia
I didn't saw game, only radio shortcuts
Sorry I had to step out acemi, As for my posted question about EMC freezing if I call a tool, only EMC freezes.
It was working fine then after getting my home switches wired I set up my system to use them now I can not call tools.
endmill: then I've no suggestion
alex_joni: the city are crying
I have machined several times and had no trouble now I can not even run the same programs.
Well I guess I will go through all my settings again and see if I have missed anything.
I even tried to replace the Tool.tbl just incase I messed it up some how.
what is messed up endmill ?
I can not seem to make Tool Calls in my GCODE or EMC will lock.
what have you changed or added since it last worked?
endmill: what are tool calls?
I configured my pin setup and files to use my home switches.
T01 or T02
are you doing a M6 T1?
No but I have tried that but with the M6 after the T1.
I will give that a try. Be back..
if you run EMC with the old config (you did save it right) you have no problems?
sounds like the loopback might be missing
iocontrol.0.tool-prepare to tool-prepared
I think that was the same one kirk was missing the other day
any word from fest today?
only that internet is out
endmill: this page on wiki has all the info about manual tool change http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?Tool_Changes
endmill: I'll be back in a bit
Thanks I will check the loop back as well as check out the info on maual tool changes.
I see what your talking about now that I have read the info on tool change. I will run out and give it a try.
That was it thanks everyone for your help.... I have home working and now need to get my limits working. To cool.
