[02:36:20] <cradek> bonk, crashed the lathe again tonight (lightly)
[02:36:33] <jmkasunich> ouch
[02:36:37] <cradek> little screw goes "pop", little insert flies off
[02:36:52] <jmkasunich> cradek orders another little screw
[02:37:06] <cradek> yep maybe I should get several...
[02:37:43] <cradek> I have a couple - need to figure out what they are exactly
[11:48:30] <cradek_> cradek_ is now known as cradek

[13:00:18] <skunkworks> Just this once .. here's the log: http://www.linuxcnc.org/irc/irc.freenode.net:6667/emcdevel/2008-10-22.txt
[15:36:44] <LawrenceG> cradek, is this like your machine? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&item=200265589457
[15:49:55] <cradek> LawrenceG: close. mine is R2E3 which does not have the CRT
[15:54:18] <LawrenceG> cool.... ohio is a LONG drive
[15:55:15] <cradek> LawrenceG: nice fake flaking on the top of the knee - I bet the machine is VERY worn
[15:56:32] <cradek> "it MAY have an issue with the control"
[15:57:59] <LawrenceG> yea... that would be the least of the worries..... a spindle rebuild would be more than I would want to deal with
[15:58:23] <LawrenceG> voodoo and very expensive bearings
[15:58:31] <cradek> http://www.emachinetool.com/usedcnc/catalog/vertical.cfm?ProductID=12914
[15:58:40] <cradek> this is more like mine
[15:59:11] <cradek> err no, mine has a normal saddle, not that wide one
[16:01:04] <cradek> here it is. http://www.bellmachineryltd.com/used_bridg_r2e3.htm
[16:09:19] <LawrenceG> hmm... 3600lbs..... it would probably ride in the back of my 1 ton.... would just have to avoid the scales!
[16:10:57] <cradek> that can't be a good idea can it?
[16:12:18] <LawrenceG> camper weighs about 3000 and that is the legal limit for my gvw.... corners could be fun with a top heavy mass of iron in the back
[16:12:57] <cradek> yeah you want it low. it's tippy.
[16:13:21] <cradek> not sure what it takes to get the head off (besides the four obvious bolts) - that would make it pretty safe.
[16:15:16] <LawrenceG> at a plant with an overhead crane, it would not be too bad to get on the truck.... getting it off at this end would be a lot harder as I live on a hill... no flat place for a crane to setup and rolling it down the driveway would be REAL exciting
[16:15:55] <cradek> it has a balanced lift point at the top - you are right a crane works well
[16:16:07] <cradek> on your end, just rent a forklift, it's safest
[16:17:00] <LawrenceG> if we ever get a sewer connection here, I have a nice flat septic field that is begging for a new shop building
[20:54:09] <cradek> jepler: it doesn't go wrong or anything, it just gives the expected error
[20:56:35] <jepler> I suspect the fix is:

[20:59:47] <cradek> what are these? I looked for a suspicious print or puts, but didn't find it
[21:00:01] <cradek> I think I get one every time the touch off window opens
[21:01:19] <cradek> want me to commit that fix?
[21:03:36] <jepler> still waiting for my emc to build -- I apparently hadn't updated in quite awhile
[21:23:06] <cradek> how did I miss that print? it's right there
[21:24:36] <jepler> heh
[21:24:39] <jepler> snow blindness?
[21:24:43] <jepler> it wasn't listed in the directory.map file?
[21:26:51] <cradek> troooollll
[21:28:11] <jepler> sorry
[21:35:05] <cradek> huh, how did I miss 4:00?
[21:35:44] <jepler> I dunno
[21:35:48] <jepler> go home
[23:49:22] <jepler> looks like the stg driver is missing index implementation for model 2
