[02:17:29] <PetefromTn_> Evening folks..
[02:18:46] <XXCoder1> hey
[02:20:21] <PetefromTn_> Hey whatzup?
[02:22:13] <XXCoder1> not much
[02:22:34] -!- lyzidiamond has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[02:23:17] <PetefromTn_> Just finished drawing up a new version of this same part I have been making with some slight changes.
[02:23:52] <PetefromTn_> Unfortunately when I did the cam work I did not realize that the Origin was set to the top left corner of the part and I need it in the center of extents.
[02:24:10] <PetefromTn_> In my cam program I can move the part drawing origin quite easily.
[02:24:23] <PetefromTn_> However the Toolpaths I generated do not follow it...
[02:24:32] <PetefromTn_> At least I do not know how to make it follow it.
[02:24:44] <PetefromTn_> It may be able to I just don't know how.
[02:24:56] <PetefromTn_> I asked over on their forum to see if there is a way.
[02:25:00] <PetefromTn_> Waiting for a response.
[02:26:12] <XXCoder1> hmm hope you figure it
[02:26:33] <XXCoder1> right now i am trying to get archlinux to run on my touchpad. why not?
[02:29:36] <PetefromTn_> Can't help ya man. sorry.

[02:30:22] -!- jthornton_ [jthornton_!~john@] has joined #linuxcnc
[02:30:29] <XXCoder1> it worked lol
[02:30:43] <XXCoder1> just need to connect to it
[02:32:46] <PetefromTn_> nice...
[02:33:54] <Jymmm> connect to it?
[02:34:05] <Jymmm> buy it flowers and chocolate
[02:34:56] <XXCoder1> :P
[02:35:28] <Jymmm> XXCoder1: what did you mean though?
[02:35:47] <XXCoder1> VNC connection. basically remote desktop
[02:36:04] <Jymmm> why ?
[02:36:59] <XXCoder1> there is no why, just how to!
[02:37:00] <XXCoder1> ;)
[02:37:13] <Jymmm> why would you want to vnc to a tablet?
[02:37:24] <Jymmm> the other way around, sure.
[02:37:38] <XXCoder1> its conencting from android tablet os to linux running on same tablet
[02:37:45] <XXCoder1> odd hack but linux running on tablet
[02:38:09] <Jymmm> oh pffff, you're on your own there!
[02:38:44] <Jymmm> running two OSes off an arm at the same time.... lol
[02:38:52] <XXCoder1> yeah
[02:38:58] <Jymmm> Silly newbe!
[02:41:04] <PetefromTn_> Okay apparently there is a way to move the machining origin in the software.
[02:41:09] <PetefromTn_> I did that and it worked.
[02:41:15] <XXCoder1> nice
[02:41:23] <PetefromTn_> But the start points for the individual toolpaths did not move with it.
[02:41:30] <Jymmm> XXCoder1: and using ancient technology too (circa 2012)... GET WITH THE TIMES MAN!
[02:42:10] <XXCoder1> my touchpad is better than most tablets out there
[02:42:31] <Jymmm> and?
[02:43:07] <XXCoder1> it works well enough for me lol
[02:43:55] <Jymmm> eh, fair enough.
[02:45:02] <Jymmm> does pi work on vga?

[02:47:15] <XXCoder1> finally figured the damned vnc password lol
[02:47:51] <Jymmm> Raspberry Pi
[02:47:57] <Jymmm> XXCoder1: RTFM? lol
[02:48:15] <XXCoder1> its not listed anywhere at all
[02:48:31] <XXCoder1> luckly I figured password pattern from other distros defaults
[02:49:54] <Jymmm> which was?
[02:50:39] <XXCoder1> archlinux
[02:50:51] <Jymmm> oh geeze
[02:52:03] <XXCoder1> wow archlinux sucks
[02:52:16] <XXCoder1> it dont come with some software to get more programs
[02:52:27] <XXCoder1> big percent of distros out there do
[02:55:21] <XXCoder1> well will play with it more later
[03:02:05] <PetefromTn_> Makin' parts!!!!
[03:02:12] <XXCoder1> :)

[03:02:40] <PetefromTn_> mine is larger than my car....
[03:02:40] <XXCoder1> but basic type, like what my cnc machine will be like
[03:02:52] <XXCoder1> large table type with giant ass gantry

[03:54:55] <XXCoder1> I cant wait to play around with cnc
[03:55:43] <PetefromTn_> Its awesome man
[03:55:58] <XXCoder1> I think I will mostly start off with art
[03:55:59] <PetefromTn_> Once you have a good working machine that is... before that is is FRUSTRATING..
[03:56:03] <XXCoder1> in my culture stuff
[03:58:00] <XXCoder1> I just ordered 4 couplers
[03:58:07] <XXCoder1> 3 to use and one as backup. save postage
[03:59:48] <PetefromTn_> Sweet..
[04:00:57] <PetefromTn_> Making the second part right now. First one came out BEAUTIFUL!!
[04:00:57] <XXCoder1> yeah. last buys will be diffult :( I needs certain screws that will work with my nema23 and other stuff
[04:08:03] <PetefromTn_> Jeez this place has been dead as hell today..
[04:08:32] <XXCoder1> yeah
[04:08:35] <XXCoder1> oh well
[04:08:48] <XXCoder1> not as dead as #cnc though lol
[04:08:54] <XXCoder1> I'm been alone there for while. lol
[04:09:20] <XXCoder1> I guess channel owners left in 2004 or so, as last used date shows
[04:15:02] <PetefromTn_> I guess everyone has better things to do huh.
[04:15:51] <PetefromTn_> I did manage to get a nice Scientific calculator/graphing calculator on craigslist for a song.
[04:16:07] <PetefromTn_> The guy I worked in the shop with uses one to figure out feeds and speeds.
[04:16:18] <PetefromTn_> He told me if I get one he will help me program it.
[04:16:25] <PetefromTn_> We did it over the phone last night.
[04:16:32] <PetefromTn_> Now I can try to learn how he does it.
[04:16:32] <XXCoder1> nice
[04:16:54] <XXCoder1> i probably will use http://zero-divide.net/index.php?page=fswizard
[04:16:55] <PetefromTn_> It is actually pretty simple but you need to know chip loads etc to use it.
[04:17:05] <PetefromTn_> Yeah that is actually what I have been using.
[04:17:06] <XXCoder1> has limitions though like no plywood and some others
[04:17:41] <PetefromTn_> I got a TI 83 plus..
[04:17:48] <PetefromTn_> They are like $90.00 new or so.
[04:17:56] <PetefromTn_> I got this one for $25.00
[04:18:11] <PetefromTn_> It is so brand new looking and the guy even put fresh batteries in it LOL
[04:18:20] <PetefromTn_> I love getting a good deal.
[04:18:26] <XXCoder1> I still have my ti 83 from college days
[04:18:41] <XXCoder1> hmm I should check it batteries soon thoygh been few years
[04:18:44] <PetefromTn_> Damn good calculator
[04:19:42] <XXCoder1> yeah
[04:19:46] <XXCoder1> played games on it too lol
[04:20:40] <PetefromTn_> they have games?
[04:21:19] <XXCoder1> yeah simple ones, but probably cant find on internet nowdays
[04:21:50] <PetefromTn_> I went to look at a car yesterday...
[04:22:02] <PetefromTn_> Trying to find another Pontiac Fiero GT project car.
[04:22:17] <PetefromTn_> Drove all the way up to Kentucky about three hours one way.
[04:22:25] <PetefromTn_> Guy had a real nice looking one in pictures.
[04:22:35] <PetefromTn_> Got there and it looked nice indeed.
[04:22:50] <PetefromTn_> Was about ready to buy it but we jacked it up and I started to look for rust.
[04:23:26] <PetefromTn_> the whole rear frame rails in the back were rusted like swiss cheese..
[04:23:26] <PetefromTn_> I was so bummed out.
[04:23:27] <XXCoder1> and you found good mine for iron oxide?
[04:23:42] <XXCoder1> ow
[04:24:12] <PetefromTn_> man it was bad..
[04:24:12] <PetefromTn_> Sucks too because it was a pretty car.
[04:24:12] <PetefromTn_> The price was right too..
[04:24:38] <XXCoder1> maybe if you could make new frame
[04:24:43] <XXCoder1> and cut price by half again
[04:26:36] <XXCoder1> wonder if this would work http://www.amazon.com/Socket-Internal-Threaded-Threads-Imported/dp/B00598DI9I/ref=sr_1_5?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1401596776&sr=1-5&keywords=%2310+screw
[04:27:00] <PetefromTn_> Drove up there and spent a bunch of gas money and lunch and snacks for nothing.
[04:27:00] <PetefromTn_> Yeah I actually have the tools and skills to fix the whole damn thing but I did not want to start off a project like this and have to tear the whole damn car apart...
[04:27:00] <PetefromTn_> The bodywork on the car was pretty nice...
[04:27:20] <XXCoder1> too bad really

[04:28:54] <XXCoder1> I dont understand that stats though
[04:29:08] <XXCoder1> it says length of 10 mm but head length of 1 1/4 inches??
[04:29:29] <XXCoder1> head diameter of 1 7/8 inch
[04:29:31] <XXCoder1> bit of wtf
[04:29:58] <PetefromTn_> for what?
[04:30:07] <XXCoder1> amazon link I just pasted here
[04:30:13] <PetefromTn_> yup..
[04:30:26] <XXCoder1> probably bulk bolt for my cnc

[04:54:18] <PetefromTn_> two more ops and this second part is done dude!
[04:54:27] <PetefromTn_> At least the first side.
[04:54:37] <toastyde1th> on the off chance I'm asking this question, is anyone here a really experienced runner?
[04:54:44] <toastyde1th> slash knows a lot about training running
[04:55:13] <PetefromTn_> I don't run unless a large intimidating dude with a gun is chasing me....
[04:55:50] <XXCoder1> wow keepass dont work with that site!!
[04:55:53] <XXCoder1> first time.
[04:56:50] <PetefromTn_> I gotta grind the shank of this cutter so it does not rub on the second depth pass a bit.
[04:57:01] <toastyde1th> XXCoder1, keepass has autotype
[04:57:15] <XXCoder1> it sure couldnt detect my login
[04:57:21] <toastyde1th> that's what i use b/c rdp hates copy paste

[05:04:51] <XXCoder1> curves and all
[05:05:10] <toastyde1th> if they're circles, there's no problem
[05:05:16] <toastyde1th> just a start, end, and a radius

[13:52:09] <Jymmm> 220MPH in 2 minutes, is that good? Sounds a tad slow.
[13:52:42] <archivist> CaptHindsight, photo fukkit gives a white screen
[13:53:33] <CaptHindsight> #9 from the top in that collection
[13:53:59] <Jymmm> I get the pic here and with ABP enabled.
[13:54:53] <archivist> the only guard painted yellow
[13:55:10] <archivist> there are plenty other guards
[13:55:58] <archivist> I imagine elf an safety has visited
[13:56:20] <CaptHindsight> what powered all the belts?
[13:58:36] <archivist> we had an electric motor in the loft at the museum
[13:58:43] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: I think someone said a 5HP motor
[13:59:27] <Jymmm> archivist: What size motor do you guys have?
[13:59:41] <CaptHindsight> "At one time I would think it was a steam engine"
[14:00:14] <archivist> part the claymills workshop is steam engine driven
[14:00:22] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: Heh, it probably heated the shop too =)
[14:01:06] <Jymmm> archivist: I meant the one you said was in the loft.
[14:01:07] <archivist> in some places it would be an old single cylinder oil engine
[14:01:24] <archivist> cant remember
[14:01:33] <Jymmm> 5HP or less?
[14:01:58] <archivist> but it was big enough to need a star delta starter
[14:02:49] <Jymmm> archivist: I've just never dealt with all that ceiling belt driven stuff, just thought it would need LOTS of torque to get started.

[14:37:12] <XXCoder1> Jymmm: order 3 chinese replacement tubes? in least one will be working and still cheaper?
[14:37:28] <XXCoder1> order em 3 seperate times though
[14:38:39] <kfoltman> XXCoder1: how's your project going? I already have X and Y axes running :P
[14:38:51] <XXCoder1> still getting parts, but getting close!
[14:39:07] <kfoltman> "running" might not be a good term, "crawling while grinding loudly" is perhaps more appropriate
[14:39:32] <kfoltman> had to reduce speed to 1440mm/min and it *knocks wood* doesn't grind anymore
[14:39:44] <kfoltman> or, rather, it still grinds, just doesn't stall
[14:39:46] <XXCoder1> I just need bunch of screws, drill press, probably table saw but will figure how to do stright cuts on plywood
[14:39:55] -!- leonardo_ [leonardo_!~leonardo@] has joined #linuxcnc
[14:39:59] <XXCoder1> oh and router too of course, it being router cnc lol
[14:40:22] <kfoltman> drill press, definitely (I did without, but it's a pain in the arse), table saw, maybe - you might ask your friendly wood supplier to cut parts for you
[14:40:46] <leonardo_> Hello to all of you! I hope not to interrupt but I have a little question regarding comp :)
[14:40:53] <XXCoder1> doubt they will cut scrap woo for me :D
[14:40:59] <XXCoder1> ask away
[14:41:30] <leonardo_> Well, I have compiled my component and everything seems to work, but I get a warning when compiling
[14:41:35] <leonardo_> the warning says : warning: the frame size of 57680 bytes is larger than 2560 bytes
[14:41:35] <kfoltman> XXCoder1: scrap wood, no, but they might sell you their plywood cut to your spec for a few dollars/euros
[14:41:42] <XXCoder1> indeed
[14:42:09] <kfoltman> XXCoder1: a table saw will definitely cost you more
[14:42:17] <kfoltman> not to mention storage space
[14:42:38] <XXCoder1> yeah thats why i doubt I can do table saw. I got enough scrap to complete the cnc though
[14:42:46] <XXCoder1> and I can get more for free.
[14:43:01] <kfoltman> what about a mitre saw? at least it's smaller
[14:43:42] <kfoltman> some designs (like Solsylva 13x13) are based on little more than cross-cut 2x4s
[14:43:44] <Loetmichel> XXCoder1: i have the advantage of living in germany. the german "baumarkt" usually has a big circular saw on linear rails to cut plywood
[14:43:45] <XXCoder1> has large one
[14:43:51] <XXCoder1> rather my bro does
[14:43:56] <Jymmm> XXCoder1 It's not so much availability of the tubes, as the chinese tool itself vs quality version
[14:44:13] <kfoltman> tubes?
[14:44:20] <Loetmichel> if you tell the employee there which part have to be the same size tey will cut it stacked in one cut so it is exactly the same
[14:44:24] <Loetmichel> done that a few times
[14:44:26] <Jymmm> kfoltman: CO2 laser tube
[14:44:27] <XXCoder1> laser tubes relatong to his earlier question
[14:44:40] <XXCoder1> thats true jy
[14:44:41] <Loetmichel> like the parts for this:

[14:45:14] <XXCoder1> I menioned that he could buy 3 plus shipping for $1000 compared to one new quality one for $2200
[14:45:19] <Loetmichel> ... which looks inside like this: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=4053

[14:46:48] <Loetmichel> in a small model parts company
[14:46:53] <Jymmm> XXCoder1: I'm going to call a place this week the recharges tubes, the only sad thing is they dont mention ULS on their website, mostly synrad and coherant.
[14:47:16] <Loetmichel> it had cut mostly FR4 and Carbon sheets for 3 years
[14:47:20] <XXCoder1> how do tubes get recharged? plug in wall? heh jk
[14:47:27] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: double X axis?
[14:47:43] <Jymmm> XXCoder1: Refilled with gas mixture.
[14:47:56] <Jymmm> XXCoder1: Internal optics replaced.
[14:48:01] <XXCoder1> sounds like cheaper option? but then..
[14:48:07] <ChuangTzu> the chinese tubes are cheap
[14:48:13] <Jymmm> XXCoder1: Well, cheaper IF they can do it.
[14:48:25] <XXCoder1> yeah calling em first is cheaper
[14:48:33] <ChuangTzu> lol
[14:48:48] <Jymmm> XXCoder1: Worse they could say is no, BUT might know someone that does.
[14:49:23] <Jymmm> If they can recharge and waranty for $750 vs $1200 wiuld be a nice savings.

[15:03:51] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: electromagnetic linear rails. Just a concept thing
[15:03:58] <Tom_itx> Jymmm the 50W chinese laser would probably be 30W actual
[15:04:22] <Tom_itx> they aren't a concept. they acutally exhist
[15:04:31] <Loetmichel> XXCoder1: looks nice
[15:04:33] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: Sure, I derate chinese stuff by 40% usually =)

[15:04:55] <Tom_itx> and be done with it
[15:05:11] <Loetmichel> ... its called "siebdruckplatte" in german, meaning " sieve printing sheet"

[15:11:01] <Loetmichel> instead of the usual white glue

[15:12:14] <SpeedEvil> There is a halfway house - 'water and boil proof' - which is not resin - but is decently resistant to water and heat
[15:13:40] <XXCoder1> I guess I see why navy would like that.
[15:14:31] <Loetmichel> i use this stuff for CNC machines because it has no length change with change in humidity
[15:14:38] <Loetmichel> as any other "wood" has
[15:15:05] <SpeedEvil> Heat-treated wood greatly reduces the change in length

[15:15:26] <SpeedEvil> http://www.maxwellwoodsb.com/TheProcess.html
[15:15:28] <FrankZappa> must be using large cross sections
[15:15:35] <Tom_itx> is refrigeration copper tube the same as gas copper tubing?
[15:15:46] <ChuangTzu> so get a 50W chinese, call it a 30W, and still save a ton of money...
[15:15:50] <FrankZappa> Ipe wood is dimensionally stable.
[15:15:53] <XXCoder1> frank there is lots wood cncs out there
[15:15:59] <SpeedEvil> If you triple the thickness of a beam made from cast iron, and make it of wood, then you get the same stiffness.
[15:16:17] <renesis> wood isnt really dimensionally stable
[15:16:20] <SpeedEvil> If you quadruple the thickness, you can have a hollow beam.
[15:16:21] <CaptHindsight> red vs blue marked copper tube, the difference is the wall thickness
[15:16:22] <XXCoder1> mine wont be treated by heat or anything so yeah less precision but not that concerned.
[15:16:25] <renesis> but plywood isnt just wood
[15:16:47] <renesis> frankzappa: i wouldnt use it for a heavily loaded machine
[15:16:54] <XXCoder1> mine will be combination plywood and.. well wood lol

[15:18:20] <FrankZappa> they don't call it "ironwood" for nothin
[15:18:28] <Loetmichel> by orders of magnitude
[15:18:38] <FrankZappa> well, stiffness is a sectional property
[15:18:39] <Tom_itx> CaptHindsight, tubing not pipe
[15:18:48] <Tom_itx> i know about thick and thinwall copper pipe
[15:18:49] <Loetmichel> and more precise
[15:18:58] <Jymmm> CaptHindsight: interesting. Are they weight bearing, menaing can you put 50lbs+ on them?
[15:18:59] <CaptHindsight> Tom_itx: the same, difference in wall thickness
[15:19:13] <Tom_itx> what about annealed roll copper?
[15:19:34] <CaptHindsight> Jymmm: even hundred or thousands, they just get bigger

[15:25:09] <kfoltman> or, any alternatives that would still allow me to use it for light milling of plastics/wood? (enclosures, not furniture)

[15:25:50] <XXCoder1> would regular router do pcb engraving?
[15:26:02] <SpeedEvil> No.
[15:26:08] <kfoltman> XXCoder1: too much runout for anything SMD
[15:26:16] <SpeedEvil> PCB routing is basically comedically bad in general.
[15:26:34] <SpeedEvil> Unless you have _extreme_ performance.
[15:26:57] <SpeedEvil> 150000RPM+ spindle, +5um or so Z axis, vacuum clamping to the bed, ...
[15:26:57] <kfoltman> the performance of my machine is indeed extreme
[15:27:01] <kfoltman> extremely bad, that is
[15:27:38] <kfoltman> SpeedEvil: I posted that vid a few days ago in ##embedded
[15:27:54] <SpeedEvil> You can do laser-printer transfer and get 300dpi++ with a little prep.
[15:28:00] <Loetmichel> SpeedEvil: it wouldnt? why?
[15:28:23] <Loetmichel> SpeedEvil: hmmm
[15:28:24] <SpeedEvil> Loetmichel: You really (today) want to be able to make 0.25mm tracks with 0.25mm gaps betwen them
[15:28:27] <kfoltman> some russian guy milling quite decent looking 0.5mm tqfp pads with a machine comparable to mine in terms of components (not build quality of course)

[15:28:51] <Loetmichel> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jMXxjT4nNxg
[15:29:06] <Loetmichel> dont thell that the cheap chinese CNC 6040 i have used ;-)
[15:29:07] <SpeedEvil> This can be surprisingly annoying. Especially as you're trying to cut a 15um copper layer on top of an abrasive substrate which may not be very flat
[15:29:31] <SpeedEvil> Right - that's what I would call total crap
[15:30:06] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=14507 <- $me thinks that is pretty decent
[15:30:08] <SpeedEvil> You can literally do that freehand with a sharpie.
[15:30:19] <kfoltman> SpeedEvil: actually, I wouldn't mind that sort of results
[15:30:40] <kfoltman> I wouldn't be *happy* with them, but it would still be usable for I/O boards and such
[15:30:55] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: 0.8mm TQFP?
[15:30:55] <Loetmichel> and that is less than 0,15mm isolation trench
[15:30:58] <SpeedEvil> I'd personally argue that it's way easier to setup a simple etch tank
[15:31:06] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: 0.6mm
[15:31:25] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: looks good to me
[15:31:35] <Loetmichel> hmmm
[15:31:40] <Loetmichel> i may have to correct that
[15:31:40] <SpeedEvil> Ah - I was assuming the DIP was the smallest component as that's all I saw on the youtube
[15:31:48] <Loetmichel> was a Mega8
[15:31:57] <kfoltman> atmegas are 0.8mm I think
[15:32:00] <kfoltman> but still
[15:32:21] <CaptHindsight> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mzmjGz0_joM PCB Etching with Lasers
[15:32:36] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: if it can do 0.66mm ones, then it's already a lot of possibilities
[15:32:55] <Loetmichel> SpeedEvil: to make a prototype it is much better than an etch tank
[15:32:57] <kfoltman> SpeedEvil: you know my etching adventures, it was pain in the ass too
[15:33:09] <kfoltman> + you still need to drill it afterwards
[15:33:11] <SpeedEvil> I never had much problem with etching.
[15:33:20] <Loetmichel> especially because my PCB software can write gcode directly ;-)

[15:34:47] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: what spindle is that?
[15:34:50] <kfoltman> and what bit?
[15:35:07] <Loetmichel> "standard" chinese 800W watercooled spindle
[15:35:26] <kfoltman> ehh, watercooled... :S
[15:35:51] <Loetmichel> and these bits: http://www.sorotec.de/shop/product_info.php/language/en/info/p179_vhm-fraesstichel-30-.html
[15:36:00] <XXCoder1> what wattage laser would nbe needed to cut wood? curious lol
[15:36:19] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: ehere is the problem with atercooled?
[15:36:26] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: water
[15:36:27] <Loetmichel> my machine at home has the same spindle
[15:36:28] <SpeedEvil> Depends on how thick you want to cut and how fast
[15:36:36] <Loetmichel> it is not very complicated
[15:36:40] <CaptHindsight> XXCoder1: 1MJ will definitely do it
[15:36:46] <XXCoder1> one inch and not millions of years lol

[15:38:07] <Loetmichel> not really a problem with the water
[15:38:19] <kfoltman> looks... messy
[15:38:22] <Loetmichel> just a lot quieter than an air cooled one ;-)
[15:38:23] * kfoltman doesn't want a divorce
[15:38:47] <kfoltman> probably not THAT bad though
[15:38:49] <CaptHindsight> the problem with all the pcb milling or laser etching is the lack of plated through holes
[15:39:08] <Loetmichel> messy? wiht less than 5 liters of water?
[15:39:16] <Loetmichel> what could possibly happen?

[15:39:37] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: 5l of spilled water
[15:39:55] <malcom2073> Very useful :)
[15:40:06] <Loetmichel> malcom2073: i have a whole bunch of these
[15:40:06] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: I mean, it's probably doable, but cost + more stuff to set up + more things to go wrong - I just wouldn't choose it as my first set-up
[15:40:28] <Loetmichel> i really like the low noise of it
[15:40:41] <CaptHindsight> Jymmm: why not mod your laser cutter to work with the water cooled Asian tubes and Yag's, blueray, etc, then you can cut, etch, SLA etc
[15:40:43] <Loetmichel> and it costs not really more than the air cooled variant
[15:41:28] <Loetmichel> not counting a bucket, an $10 spring pump and a few feet of pvc hose
[15:41:55] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: VFD?

[15:50:42] <Loetmichel> ChuangTzu: i make a lot of typos.
[15:50:57] <malcom2073> Looking at putting together my first router, I can geta shapeoko for $300 (+$300 for a G540 and some steppers I have laying around, and a dremel I have laying around), OR a chinese 6040 for $1500 (+ 300 gecko drive to replace the crap electronics)? I want to do silly tinkering around with MDF and the like, is it worth spending 3x more on the 6040, or should I just sell the shapeoko once I outgrow it, and spend that money on building myself
[15:50:57] <malcom2073> the 4x8 I always wanted :)
[15:50:59] <Loetmichel> so what?
[15:51:04] <ChuangTzu> i understood what you meant
[15:51:12] <ChuangTzu> kooks is just a funny word
[15:51:30] <XXCoder1> malcom2073: $90 router from local shop?
[15:51:37] <humble_sea_bass> shapeoko isn't very stiff
[15:51:42] <XXCoder1> one with good range of rpm - from 8000 to 16,000
[15:51:59] <malcom2073> XXCoder1: That's another option instead of the dremel
[15:52:17] <XXCoder1> yeah dermel has bad side force sensivity if I recall
[15:52:17] <malcom2073> humble_sea_bass: That's a bit what I'm worried about, is the quality goign to be crap from the delryn wheels and aluminum rails?
[15:52:22] <Loetmichel> malcom2073: iirc the shapeoko isnt really "rigid". not that the 6040 is, but still the 6040 is much "better"
[15:52:23] <XXCoder1> it'd be real slow
[15:52:23] <humble_sea_bass> trim routers from bosch are the best bang for buck
[15:52:51] <XXCoder1> humble yeah was considering that one.
[15:52:55] <XXCoder1> what rpm range though?
[15:53:09] <XXCoder1> one site says only 35,000 rpm hmm
[15:53:11] <Loetmichel> XXCoder1: also dremel has a very long unsupported shaft to the first bearing
[15:53:15] <XXCoder1> cant mill alum withg that I think
[15:53:17] <malcom2073> Need to see if someone around here has a shapeoko I can come by and check out haha
[15:53:26] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: bigger motor? 204mm long instead of 180mm, but should be the same otherwise?
[15:53:48] <Loetmichel> XXCoder1: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=284
[15:53:54] <humble_sea_bass> I dunno what the low end of the RPM range is
[15:54:11] <XXCoder1> it just says 35,000 fixed rpm. might be that specific model
[15:54:17] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: oh, sorry. i may have had the size of the 2.2kw in mind
[15:54:20] <humble_sea_bass> it has 6 setting so probably something divisible by that
[15:54:33] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: anyway, I'll keep looking, especially if I can find a kit with mounts already
[15:54:54] <XXCoder1> "Variable Speed Yes "
[15:55:08] <XXCoder1> doesnt say what lower bound is though
[15:55:29] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: 2.2kW might be a little bit of overkill for my plywood-based machine
[15:55:34] <Loetmichel> XXCoder1: "kugellager" means "ballbearing"
[15:55:55] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: it may
[15:56:20] <kfoltman> am I supposed not to drink the kugellager?
[15:56:22] <kfoltman> :P
[15:56:30] <XXCoder1> man! some listings is crap
[15:57:31] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: i just wanted to show the point in "dremels are lousy CNC spindle because of the long unsupported and thin shaft"
[15:58:02] <XXCoder1> dermel pribably fine for engraving pcbs? heh
[15:58:03] <Loetmichel> even if in thet pic it is a copy. the original has exactly the same construction
[15:58:33] <Loetmichel> not really, because of gross runout and aluminium collets that NEVER sit centered
[15:58:39] <XXCoder1> good one http://www.newwoodworker.com/reviews/bosch1617EVSrtr.html
[15:58:41] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: so, that 'spring pump' and PVC tube - I guess PVC tube is not that hard to get, where can I get the pump?
[15:58:44] <XXCoder1> 8,000 to 25,000
[15:58:52] <XXCoder1> 8k rpm is probably low enough for alum?
[15:59:06] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: any hardware store that sells garden pond stuff
[15:59:08] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: I think I'll go for the water-cooled stuff after all, seems not much more expensive than the proxxon and the parameters look yummy
[15:59:34] <kfoltman> and they ship from UK (or so they claim) so I won't be slapped with customs
[16:00:08] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: dont forget to order some ER collets fitting your preferred tools
[16:00:23] <Loetmichel> iirc there is only a 6mm collet provided
[16:01:06] <Loetmichel> XXCoder1: that depends on the diameter of your tools
[16:01:20] <Loetmichel> i mill aluminium 24krpm regulary
[16:01:29] <Loetmichel> with a two flute 2mm mill bit
[16:01:38] <XXCoder1> interesting. ok
[16:01:50] <XXCoder1> what depth and what ipm?
[16:01:59] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: "Collet: ER11(3.175mm,4mm,6mm)" - what does it mean in practice?

[16:02:21] * kfoltman <- noob
[16:03:57] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: i would THINK that you will be delivered with three collets
[16:04:01] <Loetmichel> in these sizes
[16:04:18] <Loetmichel> but i cant find a "list of shipped goods" anywhere
[16:04:47] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=13221 <- these are er11 collets
[16:05:05] <Loetmichel> (and an er11 to 8mm straight shaft adapter)
[16:06:08] <malcom2073> Is this stuff going to have a lot of the same issues as the makerslide that shapeoko uses: https://store-itwgldve.mybigcommerce.com/product_images/uploaded_images/v-slot-v-ride-the-rail.jpg ?
[16:06:10] <Loetmichel> each collet can clamp its designated diamater and 0,5mm below
[16:06:53] <Loetmichel> malcom2073: i personally dont like slides that ride on aluminium extrusions
[16:07:05] <XXCoder1> HMMM http://hackaday.io/project/998-Affordable-Metal-3d-Printer
[16:07:09] <Loetmichel> because they are usually bent like a banana
[16:07:10] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: my stuff is made mostly out of 18mm plywood, 2 layers in some places, do you think that'll do?
[16:07:28] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: if you box it a lot: sure!
[16:07:45] <malcom2073> Loetmichel: what about this sort of thing: http://www.bg-cnc.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/dscn2801.jpg
[16:07:53] <XXCoder1> its still in very early stages
[16:07:55] <Loetmichel> a single sheet of 18 or 21mm plywood isnt really stiff
[16:08:14] -!- Tecan has quit [Quit: Live Long And Phosphor!]
[16:08:53] <Loetmichel> if you make 2 sheets into a 50-100mm high "box" it will be stiff as hell
[16:09:24] * FrankZappa prefers to cast
[16:09:33] <Loetmichel> malcom2073: better because of the steel rods, but still the rail itseld may be bent like hell
[16:09:53] <malcom2073> Loetmichel: So I guess it would depend greatly on how it's supported/mounted
[16:09:54] <Loetmichel> if you have the right equipment to straighten it: looks good to me ;-)

[16:11:18] <Loetmichel> of course there is a second sheet on top
[16:11:24] <kfoltman> what are the holes for?
[16:11:40] <Loetmichel> ... and about 1000 5mm by 50mm spax srews ;-)
[16:11:45] <kfoltman> :O
[16:11:47] <Loetmichel> -r+c
[16:12:11] <Loetmichel> the holes are just weight reduction and convenient cable routing
[16:12:25] <kfoltman> you put a screw in each intersection? :O

[16:15:32] <Loetmichel> XXCoder1: not necessary
[16:15:58] <XXCoder1> yeah a big overkill lol

[16:18:56] <Loetmichel> yes
[16:19:13] <XXCoder1> I'm still not sure how to drill holes in my sbr rails lol
[16:19:17] <Loetmichel> to make the 100mm holes with a hole saw
[16:19:19] <XXCoder1> still need a drill press!
[16:19:22] <kfoltman> XXCoder1: shouldn't they already have holes?
[16:19:31] <XXCoder1> mine dont
[16:19:34] <kfoltman> XXCoder1: my sbr12 rails have holes 100mm apart
[16:19:45] <XXCoder1> chinese crap rails lol but works very well
[16:19:51] <Loetmichel> XXCoder1: screws and "nail in nuts"
[16:19:54] <kfoltman> I find them very gritty
[16:20:06] <kfoltman> nail-in nuts?
[16:20:09] <XXCoder1> expecially since I took lots time cleaning metal and stuff crud out of bearings
[16:20:19] <kfoltman> XXCoder1: oh!
[16:20:32] <kfoltman> I only applied the amount of lube to put any gay sex party to shame

[16:20:55] <XXCoder1> kfoltman: one nice tip: use hex tool to rotate balls, and do it inside cardboard box
[16:21:06] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: clean the ballcages of the sbrs
[16:21:12] <Loetmichel> they are usally full of dirt
[16:21:18] <kfoltman> :|
[16:21:18] <XXCoder1> so if you acciently pop balls trying to rotate stuck ones, you can just use magnetic tip screwdriver to opush it back in
[16:21:27] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: I have some spare ones to practice on :)
[16:21:47] <kfoltman> XXCoder1: I became an expert in reinserting the balls with a scalpel, due to strained axes
[16:21:53] <XXCoder1> and sometimes lightly slam bearing block on hand to loosen metall stuff out
[16:22:05] <XXCoder1> again, in box to prevent ball loss lol
[16:22:34] <kfoltman> but never actually opened a bearing block
[16:22:47] <XXCoder1> I didnt either
[16:22:51] <Loetmichel> i cleaned all of my sbr bearing blocks in a bowl of gasoline

[16:23:15] <Loetmichel> pressed
[16:23:20] <XXCoder1> loet nice idea. probably will do so to get rid of trace oil to replace with lathium grease
[16:23:47] <XXCoder1> how did you know when it was dried enough so theres no gas left inside?
[16:24:30] <XXCoder1> and did you clean rails with gasoline too?
[16:25:47] <kfoltman> not much gunk on rails though?
[16:26:07] <XXCoder1> it has oil and oil isnt compitable with lathium grease I plan to use
[16:26:13] <somenewguy> diesel works better than gasoline
[16:26:13] <XXCoder1> so probably has to clean first

[16:31:26] <kfoltman> by the way, those open bearings - looks like they cut them with angle grinders, sometimes sloppily, so the ball races are JUST at the edge of the cuts
[16:31:46] <kfoltman> and then the balls tend to fall out

[16:36:28] <zeeshan> those?
[16:36:37] <kfoltman> the top pic is taps taps and taps?
[16:36:51] <zeeshan> yes mostly taps
[16:36:55] <zeeshan> the big blue boxes are end mills
[16:37:05] <zeeshan> i ordered these taps cause theyre the special kind
[16:37:08] <zeeshan> they're 'forming taps'
[16:37:12] -!- i_tarzan [i_tarzan!~i_tarzan@] has joined #linuxcnc
[16:37:15] <ChuangTzu> oldschool
[16:37:17] <zeeshan> so they form taps instead of cut taps
[16:37:21] <kfoltman> ???
[16:37:24] <zeeshan> mainly bought em for tapping in aluminum
[16:37:29] <zeeshan> cause the thread is much stronger
[16:37:50] <kfoltman> what's the difference between forming and cutting? (sorry, not a native speaker or a machinist)
[16:37:56] <CaptHindsight> zeeshan: yeah
[16:38:05] <ChuangTzu> pushing the material out of the way vs. removing it
[16:38:05] <zeeshan> kfoltman: one makes a chip
[16:38:10] <zeeshan> the other deforms the material
[16:38:45] <XXCoder2> so new hole would have dense walls
[16:38:46] <kfoltman> ok, so it's like a difference between squeezing and eating thread with a spoon?
[16:38:48] <XXCoder2> I guess?
[16:40:00] <zeeshan> well when you're cutting threads
[16:40:13] <zeeshan> usually you'll have residual tensile stresses
[16:40:20] <zeeshan> which act to make the thread weaker..
[16:40:32] <kfoltman> ok, I think I got it :)
[16:40:39] <zeeshan> if you form a thread, since you're "pushing it and deforming it" you cause compressive stresses at the surface
[16:40:49] <zeeshan> which make them stronger
[16:41:02] <zeeshan> it's not a big deal for most holes in steel and stuff,
[16:41:10] <zeeshan> but in aluminum it can make a big difference

[16:45:36] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: what's the amount of vibrations from that spindle? better or worse than average dremel?

[16:48:12] <IchGuckLive> if you can get a kress use this
[16:48:13] <XXCoder2> from what I see I wouldnt use dermel at all

[16:49:27] <kfoltman> <kfoltman> guys, any opinions re: using proxxon ib/e for a spindle for PCB?
[16:49:31] <kfoltman> an hour ago :)
[16:49:44] <IchGuckLive> the 8oow spindels are realy good
[16:49:54] <kfoltman> XXCoder2: dremel is what I was testing this stuff with
[16:50:24] <IchGuckLive> for pcb only you can use whatever you want
[16:50:31] <kfoltman> and my main concerns at this point is 1) maintenance (but that's not a problem), 2) if it's suitable for poorly aligned 18mm plywood construction machine
[16:50:51] <IchGuckLive> the tool is the goal not the spindel on this as long as it can retch 20k rpm
[16:50:53] <kfoltman> IchGuckLive: not 'PCB only', no - but PCB is going to be one of the major uses

[18:34:15] <Jymmm> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?StepMotorWireIdentification
[18:35:25] <Loetmichel> but the stepper does some strange things on the drivers: 4 steps forward, two steps back. and at a certain high speed it runs normal in ONE direction, and not the oter, also not at any other speed

[19:35:00] <zeeshan> http://i.imgur.com/9oSrIfk.jpg
[19:35:04] <zeeshan> i need to figure out how the hell to organize these
[19:35:22] <zeeshan> ideally id like them in a toolbox drawer
[19:35:27] <zeeshan> but i dont have any space
[19:37:04] <archivist> without infinite space you always have a problem with storage
[19:37:21] <zeeshan> i hate those stands with the holes in wood
[19:37:32] <zeeshan> i really need a drawer
[19:37:55] <zeeshan> http://i.imgur.com/o7Pjt2t.jpg
[19:37:59] <zeeshan> this was a freebie :D
[19:38:05] <archivist> I have some boxed sets of drills and some draws with the overflow
[19:38:09] <zeeshan> disected an audio system

[19:38:38] <zeeshan> archivist: pics? :D
[19:38:50] <zeeshan> i can't find any pics on google on people organizing taper drills
[19:39:02] <zeeshan> the ones i do find are in those wood things which i dont like

[19:41:01] <zeeshan> =D
[19:43:07] <XXCoder1> zeeshan: get a metal L beam
[19:43:15] <ReadError> Loetmichel, you went?
[19:43:40] <XXCoder1> drill holes down one side, drill more holes on other part, screw that into wall
[19:44:01] <zeeshan> XXCoder1: i want them in a box :P
[19:44:09] <XXCoder1> even better is wide U beam, drill only one side to put drill bits in and bottom of u to screw to wall
[19:44:18] <zeeshan> but thats a pretty good idea
[19:44:20] <Loetmichel> yes
[19:44:22] <zeeshan> long angle iron
[19:44:25] <Loetmichel> not my video, though
[19:45:09] <XXCoder1> other option is to cnc a wood sheet. you can even include sizes print on it
[19:45:21] <XXCoder1> for place in drawer of some form
[19:46:52] <Loetmichel> XXCoder1: you mean like this? -> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=12620 but for taps?
[19:47:10] <XXCoder1> that or on drill sides yeah
[19:47:51] <XXCoder1> side takes lot more 2d space but much lower profile
[19:49:19] <Loetmichel> (to use 3mm FR4 for the spanners was an error, thou :-)

[19:59:41] <kfoltman> but the previous one, well, impressive :)

[20:21:42] <archivist> kfoltman, yes
[20:21:55] <kfoltman> archivist: black art indeed
[20:22:21] <Loetmichel> XXCoder1: milldrilling: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkKHPsJtZlc
[20:22:22] <archivist> kfoltman, I cut into it as it was just a support
[20:22:48] <XXCoder1> good, automatic heh
[20:23:03] <Loetmichel> ...and from the office
[20:23:50] <Loetmichel> i like the combination vnc and vlc :-)
[20:23:55] <Loetmichel> ... and a webcam
[20:24:07] <XXCoder1> I bet
[20:25:18] <Loetmichel> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9u_ChO1AKYY <- more remote stuff. careful, second part is loud
[20:25:20] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: it *is* possible to mill a 100mm hole this way? (of course, I mean as a circular slot)
[20:25:34] <Loetmichel> sure
[20:25:37] <Loetmichel> why not?
[20:25:45] <renesis> a circular slot is a hole?
[20:25:54] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: I'm just sanity checking before buying the proxxon ;)
[20:26:15] <Loetmichel> renesis: i think he means "without rubbung out the inner part"
[20:26:21] <kfoltman> yes
[20:26:23] <Loetmichel> rubbing
[20:26:27] <ChuangTzu> bung
[20:26:30] <ChuangTzu> :D
[20:26:51] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: as in, I want to mill improved parts, and that includes holes of diameter of 5mm and more, and proxxon only goes up to 1/8" shank
[20:27:01] <Loetmichel> so?
[20:27:19] <kfoltman> yeah, I see no reason why it wouldn't work :)
[20:27:23] <kfoltman> it's just a slot
[20:27:38] <renesis> heh, for PCB i dont drill anything over like .063, i just route circles
[20:27:53] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: careful, LOUD... -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UEd4LCJ3uWk
[20:29:00] <kfoltman> renesis: well, sounds better than switching tools 10 times per PCB just because there's a mixture of packages ;)
[20:29:08] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: the sound is horrendous :D

[20:29:25] <Loetmichel> long aluminium extrusion. resonance
[20:29:45] <XXCoder1> wonder if you could add something to damp it
[20:29:47] <Loetmichel> but: 2mm mill bit: 15mm hole ;-)
[20:30:02] <XXCoder1> olf vw bugs has this black rubber-like thing that converts vibration to heat
[20:30:34] <XXCoder1> why not just slap some on work peice heh
[20:30:36] <toastyde1th> sandbags on the ends of the extrusion
[20:30:57] <Loetmichel> bitumen cardboard?
[20:30:59] <ChuangTzu> sorbethane
[20:31:29] <renesis> kfoltman: i dont have an auto changer, so yeah mostly i am trying to avoid tool changes
[20:31:52] <Loetmichel> renesis: thats my usual mode of operation also
[20:31:54] <kfoltman> I suspect many 'pro' PCB houses do the same
[20:32:04] <Loetmichel> use a 0,6mm mill bit to make ALL drills ;-)
[20:32:18] <Loetmichel> no, pro pcb houses have autochangers
[20:32:22] <XXCoder1> nah 0.01 mm one ;)
[20:32:30] <renesis> they prob drill everything up to shank size
[20:32:35] <XXCoder1> dont even know if such exosts lol
[20:32:42] <Loetmichel> they restrict you toi tools they have in the changer
[20:32:45] <renesis> larger drills are fairly low risk, they dont just break
[20:33:05] <renesis> i drill .012" on my taig
[20:33:07] <Loetmichel> renesis: i have tc drill bits up to 6mm with 1/8" shank
[20:33:08] <Loetmichel> ;-)
[20:33:25] <renesis> like hundreds of drills into FR4, i usually break the bits changing them, not during cycles
[20:33:25] <Loetmichel> and down to 0,3mm
[20:33:46] <Loetmichel> smaller than that will likk the bit instantly if you have the slightes runput in the spindle

[20:34:26] <ChuangTzu> just route the holes

[20:36:51] <Loetmichel> bu i can order 6mm also
[20:36:57] <zeeshan> cute
[20:36:58] <zeeshan> :D
[20:37:23] <Loetmichel> and they are fully tungsten carbide
[20:37:34] <zeeshan> how much?
[20:37:49] <Loetmichel> 17 eur a piece if i remember correctly
[20:37:58] <zeeshan> expensive!
[20:38:57] <Loetmichel> http://www.sorotec.de/shop/product_info.php/language/en/info/p334_hm-bohrer--6-50mm.html <- ah, even 6.5mm

[21:04:28] <Tom_itx> PCB endmills
[21:06:17] <SpeedEvil> I've idly wondered about recutting 'masonry' carbide bits.
[21:06:28] <SpeedEvil> I assume there is a really good reason this won't work.
[21:06:41] <SpeedEvil> (I know the hole may not be very straight due to teh reduced diameter shank)

[21:48:24] <kfoltman> ok, so, this is now in my shopping cart: proxxon IB/E, some 1-flute bit for plastic, some 0.8mm spiral bit to do initial tests on a PCB, and a step clamping set
[21:48:43] <kfoltman> I already have some end mill set (1mm-3mm carbide I think)
[21:49:15] <kfoltman> anything else that I should definitely get or I'll regret it until Alzheimer's eats all my memory?
