[16:42:43] <jepler> halcmd setp input.0.led_capsl 1
[16:42:46] <jepler> whee
[16:42:52] <alex_joni> heh
[16:44:39] <alex_joni> next step is to setp input.0.key_a 1
[16:44:50] <alex_joni> and the key goes down
[16:49:16] <jepler> WARNING: axis 4 exceeds MAX_AXIS (4)
[16:49:26] <jepler> talk about your confusing error messages :-P
[16:49:38] <alex_joni> mine?
[16:49:57] <alex_joni> how did you get that?
[16:50:37] <jepler> that's what the emc2.1 joystick driver says when the device is the 6-axis spaceball
[16:51:30] <jepler> (it also complains about axis 5)
[16:52:06] <alex_joni> is that related to the motion change I did?
[16:53:27] <alex_joni> guess not..
[16:53:49] <alex_joni> hal_joystick.c : #define MAX_AXIS 4
[16:54:23] <jepler> no, nothing to do with you
[16:54:30] <jepler> I just thought it was funny since it asserted that 4 > 4
[16:55:17] <alex_joni> well it is funny :)
[16:55:34] <alex_joni> but a PC needs a bit of AI to understand that 4 > 4
[18:01:15] <skunkworks> jepler: the velocity patch seems to work. I scaled the velocity by 60 and was able to run it a 1200 rpm with my drill.
[18:01:55] <skunkworks> didn't loose any counts yet either.
[18:04:16] <alex_joni> how do you know?
[18:04:31] <skunkworks> marked the shaft.
[18:04:47] <skunkworks> runs right back to 0 and lines up.
[18:05:26] <skunkworks> rpm wise - we have a snap-on rpm meter
[18:05:27] <alex_joni> great
[21:29:29] <alex_joni> guess no 2.1.1 this weekend
[23:42:11] <cradek> I guess it's a little late to start, isn't it
[23:51:37] <skunkworks> most importantly... did you get a chance to work on your lathe?
