<- the first one I did worked better
I still can't open that kind of url
this reminds me of http://phun.at/
jmkasunich: I found that it's quite fun to look at other designs
hmm.. rope bridge is pretty smart
firefox crashed before I finished the last leve
thats probably a good thing
* jmkasunich gets away from the computer
it annoys me when people lie with numbers
I got some junk mail from my bank today: "did you know that if everybody in the US used online bill payment there would be 1.45 billion tons less waste peper?"
1.45 billion tons / 300 million people = 9666 lbs of paper per person per year
maybe if you combined all the junk mail, but not bills
heh, came at umpossible a fresh way and solved it in 10 mins
the lathe has a PC in it!
downloading hardy now...
jmkasunich: mail them back... "Did you know that if you didn't send this out in the first place you would have saved 3 billions tons?"
you mounted it in the old control cabinet?
I was able to make room in one of the boxes on the lathe itself. I will be able to get rid of the control cabinet.
I have a new box (old phone system case) that the servo drives and transformer will (barely) fit in.
"PC" = the computer only, or the monitor and kb?
PC = power supply, hard disk, motherboard
there is room leftover to mount the mesa stuff, and the original wiring for most everything will reach it.
looks like I will have a lot going this weekend.
the coolant motor is 3 phase. Is there a simple way I can drive it with one phase (add a cap somehow?)
"static phase converter" = a cap (or two)
I'm not sure how it gets hooked up, or how much C you need
do you leave them hooked up all the time, or just to start it?
all the time I think, or maybe you have a larger start C, and a smaller run one
ok thanks, I'll ask the internet (later)
os and updates installed!
yay, I'm committed

Morning all. Gcode question: I have an X,Z,C mill (sort of a vertical turret lathe or a horizontal mill with a rotary C table) with the tool in the -X direction. I want to use a tool table for tool offsets. how do I use G43 with the lathe format tool table to get the X tool length offset?
I see that G43.1 (dynamic tool offset) uses I or K to indicate X or Z. Is that applicable in G43?
How do I get the 'lathe' tool table to work with a straight G43?
Roguish: just write your tool table entries in the lathe format
it's G43 for both formats of tool table entry
ok, so a 0 (zero) in the z offset and my real number in the x offset? and call G43?
with the other stuff in the lathe tool table.
oh, thanks for responding. my client has already broken 1 expensive tool and does not want to break any more.
jepler: see this of the machine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KT_cAiyks5U
well .. test first
they got a bit ahead of me.
machine foam of different sorts. the cutters are generally .50 diam, 12" long, carbides, 2 flute spirals. kinda pricey.
sounds interesting -- I can't watch the video on this machine though
check it out sometime. i added it to the emc group.
they now want to change their gantry machine from flashcut to emc2.
hey LawrenceG wanna help me crack a safe?
JymmmEMC, sounds like fun... a new product line for me..
LawrenceG: I'm actually serious.
LawrenceG: I have a digital safe I was given without the combination.
LawrenceG: The external keypad also houses (most) of the electronics and I've been able to take apart
LawrenceG: I just need some help with bypassing the electronics on it, specifically the microcontroller.
hmmmm.... no idea
LawrenceG: There are three wires going into the safe. One is common with GND to the battery.
send it to BigJohnT and let him try plasma
any idea what is inside ?
No, I'm trying NOT to damage the integrity of the safe itself.... it's a data safe
greetings from the North
I can get into it easily if I had to, that's nto my intension.
LawrenceG: No idea, complete black box at this point.
LawrenceG: I'm assuming that there *MIGHT* be a "reset" button to clear/reset the combination, but I'm not sure as I don't have the instruction manual for it yet.
LawrenceG: Applting 5VDC to the other two wires does nothing.
no clue here... depends on how hacker proof the designer was trying to make it....
LawrenceG: Not very... I've been able to bypass the 2 second delay, and the 5 minute lockout already.
If you had another one that was open, it would be much faster to explore
LawrenceG: Well... DUH!
jymm: trying to crack it?
if built for the NSA, putting 5v on one wire would open it, and 5 volts on the other wire would set off a pile of thermite, melting everything into a blob!
anonimasu: yeah, but without damaging it =)
hm.. if it was a normal lock it'd be easier ^_^
better get guessing
the only safe I played with was a huge jewelers safe, it even with the combination, it was a bear to get open
[17:54:43] <JymmmEMC> http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/ec/FireKing_KV2015-2_safe,_class_350-2R_combo_panel.JPG
at work three people know the safe combination, yet only I seem to be able to open it :-)
locks only slow down the honest people
the shittier safes dont have that problem ;)
anonimasu: this is the shitter one, but has a UL Listed 2hr fire rating
jepler: no chance to get a code?
or did you find it?
[17:56:12] <anonimasu> http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:FireKing_KV2015-2_safe,_class_350-2R_door_opened.JPG
anonimasu: but see that lil hole there... not sure what it is
could be a reset button
I cant see it
straight down, on the inside fo the door
I wonder how they open them if they've been through a fire..
plasma cutter =)
it's no burglary rated, just fire rated.
The UL impact test calls for the safe to be heated to 1638° for 45 minutes, then dropped onto concrete rubble from a height of 30 feet, then inverted and reheated for another 45 minutes.
google dosent know how to open it
did you try alot of combinations yet?
the most common ones
fingerprint powder would have been a approach
isolate a few numbers
There was a barcode on the PCB. I was able to scan it and get a number, but that number or it's patterns don't open it. and doens't match the SN of the safe itself.
It might have been the original combination from the factory, but has changed since then.
* anonimasu nods
call the manufacturer and ask them if a locksmith could open it for you?
without exploding it ;)
Nah, no fun in that
or if they can open it..
There's no rush in getting it opened, and I like the challenge of it.
I locked a padlock to something at my desk yesterday -_-
locks have NEVER stopped me, just slow me down
without finding the key
jymm, any idea how many numbers in the combo?
up to 5
so 100,000 possible
a bunch of relays, a small program and a day or 2
If *I* knew how to interface paraport to other electronics, I could just attach the PC to the safe and let it go thru sequencially in a couple of hours.
There are two LED's on it that I could use as feedback to say when it's found the right combination
[18:09:42] <anonimasu> http://www.fireking.com/pdf/Lost%20Key%20Replacement%20Form.pdf
the devel channel was just talking about feature creep..... I dont think they though of this one
anonimasu: It's $50 and no guarntee
If I could just find the manual, that be half the battle
did you try emule?
anonimasu: nope, could you?
uh yes, I can.. actually ^_^
emule is good for stuff not found easily
jymm: it was probably easier to pick my crap padlock with the hairpin then to open your safe..
I think smacking the lock upside down against something with a bit of tension would make it open ^_^
JymmmEMC: nope cant find anything
JymmmEMC:they probably do not exist on the net

well, there is one for the "chores I didn't plan on doing today" list
wash the dog because he found some stinky pile-o-crap to roll in
my dog loves to do that too
hm mine dosent
she does it sometimes, very very rarely
my dog gets to sleep on the bed, so he can't be doing that
mine too :)
mine sleeps behind my chair
I don't have a dog - my cat doesn't do that
just one of many dog things that cats don't do
otoh, dogs rarely get hairballs
and my dog cleans up the cat puke
hair balls don't usually stink
* BigJohnT heads out to the shop to plasma some parts out
maybe that would be a reason to get a dog
have you been doing anything with apt360 lately?
cradek: hi, how's the lathe coming along?
it is firmly beyond the point of no return
I unhooked, without labeling, the 900 wires that connected the control to the machine
it is good to be committed
I have a pc and its accoutrements mounted where some 70s ttl machine logic used to be
next step is to mount the mesa boards and start hooking things up.
I'll go out and do that any second.
you need to take pictures
* jmkasunich nags
DanielFalck: I haven't done anything for quite a while. Still hoping to get back to it. I have been trying to get EMC2 on a few machines.
I have a few.
stustev: can you drop into the #cam channel for I little bit?
BigJohnT_ is now known as BigJohnT
good night all
in 2003, I bought a surplus 4" Kurt, less jaws
on June 1 of this year I bought the jaws
on August 10, I finally got around to disassembling and cleaning the vise and mounting the jasw
but, its done, so yay!
heh good comes to those who wait
got my drive hooked up to my motor now, just playing with tuning the PID loop
good comes to those who don't procrastinate so much
I found plenty of ways to get following errors :)
only three ways to not get them
1) get it tuned right
2) set the limits really wide
3) don't turn it on
option 1 sounds good
i guess this is going to involve "reading"
mostly reading scope traces
but you might have to read docs to find out how to use the scope
presumably a real scope on the Aout will do similar?
on the basis of I know how to drive a real scope ;)
i presume the integrator manual is the place to start?
odd, it seems bit strange .. in one direction, monitor Aout, crank ballscrew by hand, 0.8V error input to servo amp ..
crnak in other direction .. lots of volts
ah, there it is .. the M5i20 setup has a MAX_OUPUT=1.0 line .. so the output goes -10.0 to +1.0
