[04:01:16] <Dave911> cradek: Just want to give you a further update on lathe threading. I ran 7 parts (axle spindles) on Thursday and threading is working great - I'm using a 200 ppr full quad encoder but in counter mode. It is tracking great up to 1200 rpm so far ( I calculated 1500 rpm as the upper limit) The first part I made - with 1"-14 threads came out perfect. I had a nut handy and it went on...
[04:01:18] <Dave911> ...smoothly. Snug, not loose, by hand. :-) I later ran into a tooling problem which is causing some tool chattering. Oh well. I'm using the Master git pull from about two weeks ago, so I think your latest change was in there.
[04:01:20] <Dave911> I did run into some tool table issues when setting the tool offsets. I tried to setup a lathe tool table and when I would do a touch off to set the offset, it would say my tool type was not set to a non zero value (it was) and then it would revert to a mill tool table and dump all of my changes?? I kept trying to do it and I must have done something different as suddenly the problem went away?
[05:21:12] <cradek> Dave911: thanks for the update, that's great news
[05:21:15] <cradek> glad your lathe is working well.
[05:21:58] <cradek> if the tool table thing happens again, maybe I can help while it's going on. hard to guess what was up, after the fact...
[08:13:50] <eric_unterhausen> is there a list of what packages are needed to take a vanilla live-cd install to the point where you can build emc2 from source?
[09:06:25] <awallin> emc2-build-dep?
[14:50:12] <jepler> awallin: apt-get build-dep emc2 pulls in everything not in the base system + build-essential for building the emc2 package.
[14:50:44] <jepler> this includes the document building stuff which you may not care to have
[14:59:27] <Dave911> cradek: I'll try doing the same thing on another EMC install and I'll report back if it gets goofy again. Once I got it to go it worked properly so it might have been operator error... ;-)
[18:32:36] <CIA-40> EMC: 03jepler 07master * re587749359be 10/src/hal/hal_priv.h: reordering this structure decreases its size
[18:32:37] <CIA-40> EMC: 03jepler 07master * r3fee1eb43905 10/src/hal/hal_priv.h: the prior two changes are ABI changes
[18:32:45] <CIA-40> EMC: 03jepler 07master * rd48c422e2f3b 10/src/hal/hal.h: work around a gcc bug in order to properly align hal_float_t
[18:44:14] <SWPLinux> Jymmm: you around?
[18:44:41] <SWPLinux> or anyone else who has op privileges in #emc
[19:28:12] <Jymmm> yeah
[19:29:14] <Jymmm> SWPLinux: I'm here
[19:29:45] <cradek> he's not banned, I think he was having some kind of confusion event
[19:30:13] <Jymmm> oh, ok
[19:45:32] <SWPLinux> must have been a network glitch
[19:45:37] <SWPLinux> it worked the second time
