[01:20:20] <NickParker> Today I discovered my mill is ungrounded. I took my sister to play with it barefoot, which was the first time I've done that because metal shavings. I touched one corner and felt something a lot like mains power. turns out it has a ground fault somewhere, which would explain my GFCI problems when i ground the 3 phase converter its spindle runs on.
[01:20:40] <jdh> cool.
[01:21:51] <jdh> I found a nifty kenametal indexable boring bar that came with my lathe and a bunch of carbide inserts. Turns out it is left hand though.

[01:44:31] <jdh> toastydeath: really? why is that? (it came with a manual mill)
[01:44:43] <toastydeath> on a cnc lathe everything's flipped upside down
[01:44:53] <toastydeath> so the tool is mounted upside down for right-handed tooling
[01:45:03] <toastydeath> you can't see a right handed boring bar IN the bore this way
[01:45:20] <toastydeath> so most of the bars are left handed so that you can see them
[01:45:55] <jdh> and run the spindle 'backwards'?
[01:47:12] <toastydeath> yup
[01:48:12] <jdh> just so you can see it?
[01:48:42] <toastydeath> sure
[01:48:54] <toastydeath> on a cnc lathe the spindle direction is as simple as m3/m4
[01:49:01] <toastydeath> nobody cares too much which way it's going
[01:49:07] <jdh> on a real one perhaps

[02:52:49] <Valen> what do you guys use to generate gcode for lathe work?
[02:54:03] <Tom_itx> jt uses those halpcv bits that come with 2.5
[02:54:13] <Tom_itx> i made a post for my cad cam
[02:54:28] <Tom_itx> lathes are pretty easy to code for
[02:54:41] <Jymmm> http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=50152765n
[02:55:05] <Tom_itx> but i don't have a cnc lathe so the cam doesn't get used alot
[02:55:29] <Tom_itx> i fixed one up for andy a while back

[02:58:21] <Valen> I could probably make one, but I'd really rather not
[02:58:51] <jdh> make what?
[03:01:22] <Valen> cam for lathe
[03:01:52] <Tom_itx> lathe is simple enough you really don't need it
[03:02:11] <Valen> so you write compound curve g code by hand?
[03:02:27] <Tom_itx> no
[03:02:36] <Tom_itx> i have cad cam for that
[03:02:53] <Valen> right, and what do you use for lathe?
[03:02:53] <Tom_itx> but alot of it is simple cuts
[03:02:59] <Tom_itx> smartcam
[03:03:12] <Tom_itx> but i've had it for years
[03:04:08] <Valen> what sort of $ is it?
[03:04:20] <Tom_itx> back then i gave around 6k
[03:04:27] <Valen> spendy
[03:04:37] <Valen> cheaper than mastercam at least lol
[03:04:45] <Tom_itx> for freeform 3d mill and basic lathe
[03:04:56] <Tom_itx> it was better than mastercam at the time
[03:04:59] <Tom_itx> i looked at both
[03:05:04] <Tom_itx> as well as surfcam
[03:05:26] <Valen> mastercam seems to want you to basically do the drawing in it
[03:05:44] <Tom_itx> well so does smartcam but it will import models as well
[03:06:13] <Tom_itx> dxf or iges mostly
[03:18:30] <Valen> we use rhinocam which is built into our cad package which i normally nice
[03:18:56] <Valen> heh I wonder about faking it, give it a 1mm wide bit of stock and a 5mm tool
[03:19:01] <Tom_itx> yeah i've heard of rhino
[03:19:13] <Valen> tell it to do all its stuff on Z axis milling ;->
[03:19:16] <Tom_itx> you'd have to change your axis around probably
[03:19:49] <Tom_itx> i had to import a model from andy using my mill package and my axis were backwards when i went to use the model in my lathe package
[03:20:07] <Tom_itx> wasn't ideal but it did work
[03:20:46] <Tom_itx> everyone said you can't use a solid model for a 2d part :D
[03:21:09] <Tom_itx> i just peeled the profile off it and used ti
[03:21:11] <Tom_itx> it*
[03:23:03] <Tom_itx> and i was having trouble importing the 2d model for some reason

[03:31:23] <cmorley> Tom_itx: what version of smartcam do you have?
[03:33:22] <cmorley> I have version 7.55 run inside DOS
[03:45:23] <Tom_itx> i had a dos version as well but this is windows
[03:45:29] <Tom_itx> i forget the ver but it's older
[03:45:36] <Tom_itx> both still work
[03:46:15] <Tom_itx> the dos ver was 2.5d, windows is freeform with the basic lathe
[03:47:13] <Tom_itx> i'd have to boot the other pcs to find out

[06:14:32] <aksr> hi guys, one off-topic question, is there some general lathe-related IRC channel?
[06:23:40] <toastydeath> not really
[06:23:58] <toastydeath> linuxcnc is pretty much the only active machining related chat room, irc or otherwise
[06:24:09] <toastydeath> there are a few other smaller ones, but nowhere near as active
[06:24:37] <toastydeath> there are enough machinists (professonal and amateur) in here to answer most general machining questions
[06:24:43] <aksr> toastydeath: well, i have manual lathe, it isn't cnc
[06:24:50] <toastydeath> yep
[06:25:02] <toastydeath> a lot of the people in here have or use manual machines on a regular basis
[06:25:10] <aksr> nice toastydeath
[06:25:30] <aksr> i have a problem with power feed
[06:26:19] <toastydeath> is this a shaft driven power feed or a servo power feed
[06:26:32] <toastydeath> (i.e. does the feed take power off a shaft coming from the headstock)
[06:26:39] <aksr> it clicks, as if it's stucked
[06:27:18] -!- asdfasd [asdfasd!123456@149.241.154.187] has joined #linuxcnc
[06:27:44] <toastydeath> when you try to engage it?
[06:27:48] <aksr> toastydeath: i'll find it, just a sec, it's an old lathe (but fairly preserved)
[06:28:30] <aksr> toastydeath: http://www.wotol.com/1-stankoimport-manual-center-lathe-max-2400-u-min-/second-hand-machinery/prod_id/254846
[06:29:00] <toastydeath> unfortunately the only way to really troubleshoot those kinds of problems is to pop the front of the apron off
[06:29:04] <toastydeath> and look at the drive gear
[06:29:20] <toastydeath> it's likely a sheared off drive lug somewh ere
[06:29:57] <aksr> toastydeath: let me tell you the symptoms:
[06:30:36] <aksr> if i engage leadscrew, it works-in a both directions
[06:30:54] <aksr> if i engage power feed, sometimes it works, sometimes is not
[06:31:26] <aksr> but if the leadscrew is engaged, power feed should turn easily by hand, right?
[06:31:41] <toastydeath> "should turn easily by hand?"
[06:32:15] <aksr> toastydeath: i mean, it should be possible to turn it easily?
[06:32:25] <aksr> i read that somewhere
[06:32:35] <toastydeath> uh, i see no particular reason why that would be true
[06:32:55] <aksr> well, it's disengaged
[06:33:08] <toastydeath> but the bottom line is that a lathe is not like a car
[06:33:13] <toastydeath> you cannot diagnose it from external symptoms
[06:33:19] <aksr> sure
[06:33:23] <toastydeath> there is too much inside the headstock and apron to tell
[06:33:39] <toastydeath> you'll have to carefully disassemble the apron to see what's sheared off
[06:34:38] <aksr> toastydeath: it doesn't seem that something is sheared off, not as much as if something is stuck
[06:35:05] <toastydeath> you would be surprised - nearly every mechanical problem inside a power feed is the result of something breaking off.
[06:35:13] <toastydeath> no matter how bizarre or unrelated the symptoms are.
[06:35:22] <toastydeath> either way, you have to open it up. guessing helps nobody.
[06:35:44] <aksr> power feed has some fail safe protection
[06:35:53] <aksr> and it `clicks'
[06:37:29] <aksr> (i'm trying to find a picture of it)
[06:37:45] <toastydeath> i'm confused - you have to open it up
[06:37:57] <toastydeath> discussing it is useless, because it's all guessing.
[06:38:06] <aksr> i know, i was afraid of that :)
[06:38:44] <aksr> toastydeath: is it hard?
[06:38:57] <toastydeath> nobody knows until it's open
[06:39:00] <toastydeath> every lathe is different
[06:39:12] <toastydeath> the powerfeeds on some are ridiculous - like on a american pacemaker
[06:39:15] <toastydeath> others are dead simple
[06:39:47] <toastydeath> take lots of pictures, use ice cube trays and notecards to document where bolts came from
[06:40:05] <toastydeath> and have a notepad that describes everything you do
[06:40:17] <toastydeath> if you get frustrated, walk away
[06:40:23] <toastydeath> that's really all you can do.
[06:40:47] <aksr> the thing that bothers me the most is, i just got it
[06:40:59] <aksr> i didn't do anything (i think)
[06:41:33] <aksr> toastydeath: ok, thank you, i'll try ;)
[06:41:40] <toastydeath> goodf luck
[06:41:43] <toastydeath> *good
[06:41:45] <aksr> :)
[06:42:10] <aksr> i'll report my findings :)

[09:13:19] <RyanS> I always return to this website for a laugh http://www.micro-machine-shop.com/Micro-Machine-Shop_Photo_Gallery.htm I think he spends most of his time collecting and categorising tools
[09:15:31] <archivist> one of those horrible round column mills...avoid
[09:17:55] <archivist> photography good, all on one page bad
[09:20:33] <RyanS> The irony of having a round column mill and more cutting tools than an industrial workshop
[09:21:19] <archivist> I had one before I knew better, managed to get rid
[09:27:02] <RyanS> I still debating that whether I really want to convert a manual to cnc it just seems everyone thinks it's easy until they need higher rpm, then they need to upgrade the bearings, is it going to really save that much money tha turnkey
[09:27:59] <archivist> web fail http://www.micro-machine-shop.com/mensuration_instruments.htm is 22 MB and has 230 resources
[09:31:08] <RyanS> Honestly could not be bothered taking pictures of my stuff and posting to the interwebs
[09:31:23] <RyanS> I would rather build stuff with it
[09:32:04] <archivist> good pictures can explain a lot
[09:33:33] <RyanS> Yes pictures of the actual process of building things are good
[09:34:13] <archivist> he has the best pictures of just about any site I have seen, just a web fail in page size and repeating the same pics

[11:25:10] <jthornton> what is the common pitch for M3 taps?
[11:25:29] <jthornton> 0.6 or 0.5?
[11:27:12] <archivist> coarse or fine series :)
[11:27:32] <jthornton> same as M6x1 series
[11:27:47] <jthornton> M8x1.25
[11:28:08] <jthornton> M5 x 0.7
[11:28:33] <jthornton> opps M4 x 0.7
[11:28:56] <archivist> .5 mm in the first table I see here
[11:29:14] <jthornton> is M3 a common screw size over there?
[11:29:19] <archivist> 3.5 is .6
[11:29:37] <archivist> reasonably common yes
[11:29:57] <jthornton> ok thanks
[11:30:47] <archivist> this table has 1.6.1.8 2 2.2 2.5 3 3.5 4 4.5 5 6 and on

[11:45:28] <Jymmm> What does it mean by 75% and 50% thread?
[11:46:17] <Jymmm> jthornton: ^^^^^
[11:46:53] <archivist> amount of engagement
[11:47:28] <jthornton> for softer materials you use 75% thread and for harder materials you use 50% thread
[11:48:07] <Jymmm> archivist: over the length of the threads, or the "gap" between the "nut" and the "bolt" threads?

[11:50:03] <Jymmm> Is there such a thing as 100% thread?
[11:50:22] <Jymmm> or just 99% ?
[11:50:40] <archivist> 100% may bind
[11:51:06] <jthornton> 100% works fine on plastics
[11:51:17] <archivist> 99% may seize if some dust gets in the thread
[11:51:20] <Jymmm> archivist: like putting a 0.500" round stock in a a 0.500" hole?

[11:52:48] <archivist> jthornton, ew windaz
[11:52:56] <jthornton> you can put 0.501 stock in a 0.500 hole, it just takes more force
[11:53:06] <jthornton> ;yea I noticed that :(

[19:02:23] <jdh> yeah, that's what I figured. I was hoping there was some always-good depth.
[19:02:45] <NickParker> Is there any advantage between 5i25/6i25? My PC can take either one. Also, since i'm using a mesa card i don't need to worry about onboard graphics killing performance correct?
[19:02:45] -!- wboykinm_ has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[19:02:59] <jdh> how about... how far through do you drill for a through-hole with a regular bit

[19:04:53] <andypugh> NickParker: In theory the 6i25 might be potentially faster, but in practive it isn't. Unless it is the other way round.
[19:05:33] <NickParker> but they're the same price, so might as well go for the 6?
[19:05:36] <andypugh> Perhaps the best plan is to think about what else you might want to install. If you go for the 6i25 then you can also add one of the other style PCI cards like a 5i20 :-)

[19:07:30] <JT-Shop> jdh: on the way
[19:07:31] <gambakufu> if I get a joint following error on my stepper based machine when attempting to increase velocity, what most likely is the cause - the stepper drivers can't keep up, or the serial pulse generator (the PC) can't keep up?
[19:08:15] <andypugh> NickParker: Have you run a latency test?
[19:08:43] <andypugh> gambakufu: It is _always_ because the pulse generation can't keep up.
[19:09:19] <NickParker> no, but i was told that doesn't much matter with a mesa card in it. I'm waiting on somebody to get home so i can use their disk burner.
[19:09:26] <andypugh> It happens when the time for a step plus a space is longer than the required frequency of pulses requested
[19:09:49] <andypugh> Can't you install from a USB drive?
[19:09:57] <NickParker> can I? I have plenty of those.
[19:10:20] <andypugh> I did it yesterday (Ubuntu Precise) and today (Lubuntu) and it worked fine :-)
[19:10:34] <gambakufu> I see. I guess I should tune my configs then. my p4 2.4ghz seems way above the required specs...
[19:10:47] <andypugh> Grab the ISO then use the Ubuntu "Startup Disk Creator"
[19:11:22] <andypugh> gambakufu: It can also be if the Stepgen max accelleration number is less than the axis max accelleration.
[19:11:30] <andypugh> (and the same for velocity)
[19:11:44] <andypugh> They both want to be 10% ot 20% higher.
[19:11:57] <andypugh> So that the stepgen can keep up with the commanded speed.
[19:12:48] <ReadError> use unetbootin
[19:12:55] -!- Rogelio has quit [Quit: Page closed]
[19:13:24] <andypugh> If you have a Ubuntu install available then the built-in startup disk creator works perfectly.
[19:14:32] <gambakufu> the stepgen max accelleration is 50 while the acceleration is 40, so that seems ok.
[19:17:50] <kwallace2> gambakufu: Normally step/dir configurations have the command and feedback signals tied together, meaning you can never really get a following error. The error comes about when your g-code asks for a motion that can not be met using the motion limits in your .ini file.

[19:38:18] <andypugh> No, just the ones who make technical YouTube videos :-)
[19:40:35] <Jymmm> andypugh In that video and other things I've seen, the 220 outlets have a switch on them. Is that common? Do many device not come with switches built-in and relay upon the outlet switch itself?
[19:40:48] <Jymmm> rely*
[19:41:16] <gambakufu> well, it seems the base period was too long... I've got it to a speed where the failure sounded mechanical rather than a software error.

[19:42:53] <andypugh> I think the idea is that you turn off at the wall in case the cats nibble through the wire.
[19:43:15] <andypugh> There is also a fuse in the plug, to protect the flex.
[19:43:34] <andypugh> (so, you can have a 6A flex plugged in to a 40A main)
[19:44:05] <andypugh> The above scenario doesn't seem to worry any other country in the world though

[20:14:48] <Jymmm> This is fucking cool (are those special welding rods by chance???): Welding with jumper cables and a pair of batteries... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PV5oLPLUzrM
[20:14:48] <Tecan> (PV5oLPLUzrM) "Welding with jumper cables and a pair of batteries" by "sewerzuk" is "Tech" - Length: 0:05:45
[20:16:41] <jmasseo> DC welding
[20:18:02] <Jymmm> For some reason I thought welding was high voltage, not high current.
[20:18:28] <NickParker> it's high power.
[20:19:27] <Jymmm> Those welds looked pretty good to me.
[20:19:31] <syyl> every dc welding rod might work
[20:20:55] <Jymmm> hmmm, I just need make a jumper then. I don't have any 4ga laying around, just 8ga.
[20:21:09] <syyl> the welds look good because the guy can weld
[20:21:55] <Jymmm> That's fine. Just means it's not a limitation of the "welding device" itself is what I was getting at.
[20:22:20] <NickParker> i should really learn stick welding.. MIG can't be done in the middle of nowhere with 2 car batteries.
[20:22:41] <syyl> get a hobart battery powered mig welder ;)
[20:23:14] <Jymmm> wha'ts mig? wire fed?
[20:23:18] <syyl> jeo
[20:23:20] <syyl> jep
[20:23:33] <syyl> the two battery aproach is nice for a redneck repair out in the desert of nowhere
[20:23:34] <Jymmm> is that the only diff?
[20:23:50] <syyl> thats a major difference
[20:24:14] <NickParker> MIG is also drop dead easy.
[20:24:38] -!- knownasilya10 has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[20:24:50] <NickParker> but I rarely have a need to weld things at all. I'm thinking more along the lines of save some damsel with a broken car on the side of the highway :)
[20:25:35] <syyl> i prefer stick and tig
[20:25:58] <syyl> stick for fabrication and outdoor use, tig for workshop use..
[20:26:49] <Jymmm> I don't think I have crimpers that will do that big either. Maybe I can sneak intot he hardware store are use the ones they chain to the wall near the aircraft cable for crimps.
[20:28:39] <syyl> just twist it together
[20:28:51] <syyl> thats outdoor-repair-spirit ;)

[23:26:44] <Nick001-Shop> then what?
[23:26:52] <cradek> did you not understand what andypugh said? you have GO when you need to have G0

[23:41:48] <cradek> if it doesn't go, your spindle feedback is wrong
[23:42:08] <cradek> at-speed is missing, or index-enable isn't working, or it isn't counting in the right direction
[23:42:56] <Nick001-Shop> P0.0466 should be P0.04166

[23:48:37] <cradek> if that's the extent of your hal, looks like you don't have your spindle position stuff hooked up at all.

[23:51:23] <andypugh> I am not sure that motion.spindle-speed-in want the RPM value, isn't that meant to be RPS direct from the encoder?
[23:53:07] <Nick001-Shop> came from pico and I sort of know it isn't right because I had to mess with some of the settings to get feed rates work work right.
[23:53:17] -!- thomaslindstr_m has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[23:54:26] <Nick001-Shop> can someone go thru the hal file and find the errors? I sort of get lost in there.
[23:54:44] <andypugh> net spindle-revs-in ppmc.0.encoder.03.velocity => motion.spindle-speed-in
[23:55:17] <Nick001-Shop> is that a line for me to add to hal?
[23:55:17] <andypugh> net spindle-pos ppmc.0.encoder.03.position => motion.spindle-revs
[23:56:15] <andypugh> net spindle-index-enable motion.spindle-index-enable <=> ppmc.0.encoder.03.index-enable
[23:56:34] <andypugh> Those three lines are what you want.
[23:56:54] <andypugh> You might need to remove other lines that conflict.
[23:57:54] <Nick001-Shop> ok -I'll go try them - conflicts I sort of know how to resolve them - Thanks
[23:58:38] <andypugh> For example, if you want to keep the spindle RPM calculation then you would have to net spindle-revs-in mult2.0.in0 and delete line 199 in the pastebin
