#emc | Logs for 2006-06-25

[00:07:04] <Dallur> hmm looks like
[00:07:04] <Dallur> .bashrc emc-source/ .gstreamer-0.8/ .nautilus/ .viminfo
[00:07:10] <Dallur> well that and
[00:07:36] <Dallur> halui.program.is-paused does not seem to report correctly if program is paused
[00:09:14] <Dallur> is anyone else getting the same results there, should I write a bug report ?
[00:09:33] <cradek> I agree, looking in the source, it's not done
[00:10:21] <cradek> also is-idle is-running
[00:10:56] <cradek> I'll fix it for you
[00:11:26] <Dallur> that's ok, no hurry, im leaving for the UK tomorrow so I won't be able to work on the THC at all for the next week ;(
[00:11:59] <cradek> if I fix it now, will you have time to test it?
[00:12:34] <Dallur> sure
[00:12:39] <Dallur> :D
[00:20:07] <CIA-8> 03cradek 07HEAD * 10emc2/src/emc/usr_intf/halui.cc: hook up program.is-paused, is-running, is-idle
[00:20:32] <cradek> fixed
[00:20:46] <Dallur> :D woot, that was fast
[00:21:13] <Jymmm> Note... When you buy as space on google, make sure your website has the graphics in your shopping cart
[00:21:19] <Jymmm> a/as/ad/
[00:26:36] <Dallur> cradek: works great, we know have a feature I have not seen in any other THC, the option to manually verify torch position before arc is struck :D
[00:26:49] <cradek> yay!
[00:26:52] <Dallur> %s/know/now/g
[00:27:45] <Dallur> plus you can actually pause the gcode and the torch will shut down, start again and the machine will pick up where it left off :D
[00:27:58] <cradek> very nice
[00:28:28] <cradek> when you unpause it waits for the arc to fire before moving?
[00:28:34] <Dallur> of course :D
[00:28:45] <cradek> cool
[00:28:57] <cradek> you must be a hal and ladder expert by now
[00:29:08] <Dallur> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/emcinfo.pl?Torch_Height_Control
[00:29:29] <Dallur> I think I have the largest HAL/Ladder around by now :D
[00:29:53] <cradek> I betyou're going to be in tight competition with demo_mazak
[00:30:07] <Dallur> hehe
[00:31:06] <Dallur> probably, automatic tool changers+cooling are quite complex I imagine
[00:31:33] <cradek> it definitely looked complex to me...
[00:31:43] <Jymmm> argh... I must be googling for the wrong thing... looking for a wood screw that has a wide head on it. think like this self-tapping sheet metal screws or a wood screw with a finishing washer on them.
[00:31:58] <cradek> even the power up cycle (coming out of estop) had many steps with delays in them
[00:34:58] <cradek> 19:13:53 < Dallur> halui.program.is-paused does not seem to report correctly
[00:35:02] <cradek> 19:32:52 < Dallur> cradek: works great
[00:35:11] <cradek> is this a record??
[00:35:35] <Dallur> i think we did it in just under 19 minutes last time so ,,
[00:35:37] <Dallur> :D
[00:35:41] <cradek> darn
[00:36:07] <cradek> public cvs is very nice for this
[00:36:31] <Dallur> :D I think public subversion is nicer but :D
[00:37:02] <cradek> possibly, but I know how to use cvs
[00:37:06] <anonimasu> hm are there any easy way to interface something via rs232 to HAL
[00:37:06] <anonimasu> ?
[00:37:14] <anonimasu> s/any/an
[00:37:34] <cradek> anonimasu: not yet, but jepler is writing something for communication with microcontrollers I think
[00:37:49] <anonimasu> hm, I wonder when he'll be around
[00:37:51] <anonimasu> *curious*
[00:37:54] <cradek> anonimasu: it's pretty easy to make a userspace serial driver, realtime would be much harder
[00:38:04] <Dallur> Do you guys know if the name of the classicladder.hal file is hardcoded? I can't seem to find any refference to it and I was hoping to rename it to avoide conflicts in the wiki
[00:38:10] <anonimasu> I'd perfer to have it realtime..
[00:38:23] <anonimasu> cradek: going to interface a real plc to hal
[00:38:33] <anonimasu> and use the buttons on the panel for control
[00:38:48] <cradek> halui is not realtime, there's little point to a realtime serial driver
[00:38:58] <anonimasu> ah I thought it were realtime :)
[00:39:38] <cradek> none of the UI stuff is realtime
[00:39:39] <Dallur> There really is not much point in having something that interacts with the GUI realtime IMHO, the GUI will never be realtime I assume so ..
[00:39:51] <cradek> that's right
[00:39:57] <cradek> neither is the human realtime
[00:40:02] <anonimasu> hm ok
[00:40:20] <anonimasu> I can write stuff for serial but, I have no idea hot to connect anything with hal :)
[00:40:59] <cradek> just model it after hal_joystick
[00:41:19] <cradek> the hard part is not hal, it's coming up with a useful serial protocol
[00:41:35] <anonimasu> hmm ok ;)
[00:41:50] <cradek> but talk to jepler first, he might have already done what you want
[00:41:55] <anonimasu> yeah
[00:42:06] <anonimasu> I wouldnt mind writing it though
[00:42:10] <anonimasu> I really need to get a clue about hal
[00:42:24] <anonimasu> it feels shitty not to do anything :)
[00:42:43] <cradek> it seems pretty easy to take an existing hal component or driver and hack it into a new one
[00:42:52] <anonimasu> yep
[00:43:07] <cradek> for example I hacked 'encoder' into 'counter' in short order (an hour?)
[00:43:17] <cradek> having no other experience writing hal componenets
[00:43:19] <anonimasu> I'm going to grab a linux iso and put a devel box togther
[00:43:31] <cradek> or components
[00:43:48] <anonimasu> yeah
[00:44:10] <anonimasu> I long until I can write toolchanger code for this plc :)
[00:46:13] <anonimasu> or well code for all aux stuff on the mill
[00:47:08] <anonimasu> *conversation killer*
[00:47:22] <cradek> have to go get groceries...
[00:47:38] <anonimasu> I'll have a talk with jepler first when he's around
[00:47:54] <anonimasu> going to install the devel box tomorrow too, and have a look
[01:14:24] <Dallur> I'm off, see you guys next week and thanks for all the help
[01:32:34] <Jymmm> * Jymmm thinks asdfqwega needs more guide wires on his bbq grill
[01:34:58] <asdfqwega> Huh?
[01:35:21] <Jymmm> asdfqwega You know... the bbq grill you have on the roof
[01:35:29] <Jymmm> or is it a wok?
[01:36:07] <Jymmm> direcpc == bbq grill/wok
[01:36:52] <asdfqwega> What, I ask, is the proper response to a relative stranger coming up to you and saying such things, with no prelude whatsoever?
[01:37:37] <Jymmm> asdfqwega: You were complaining that your connection was bouncing like crazy the other day
[01:37:45] <asdfqwega> Besides tasering the crazy sonuva before he makes a move?
[01:38:11] <Jymmm> the logs never lie =)
[01:38:40] <asdfqwega> Great, now he's talking to logs
[01:38:50] <Jymmm> the log files never lie =)
[01:39:18] <giacus> I'd try to sleep a bit now ..
[01:39:25] <giacus> *_*
[01:39:28] <Jymmm> nite jacky
[01:39:41] <giacus> got the mosquito killer
[01:39:47] <giacus> Night Jymmm
[01:39:52] <giacus> G night all
[01:40:03] <Jymmm> giacus hanging garlic around your neck?
[01:40:05] <Jymmm> doh
[01:41:42] <Jymmm> asdfqwega See how you are... you scared off giacus
[01:41:45] <Jymmm> =)
[01:42:23] <asdfqwega> * asdfqwega tasers Jymmm
[01:43:05] <Jymmm> * Jymmm points to the chainmail armor he's wearing =)
[01:45:29] <asdfqwega> Do you also wear a tinfoil hat to ward off the mind control lasers from the CIA?
[01:47:58] <Jymmm> Close... http://www.atsemc.com/Shielding.htm
[01:48:49] <asdfqwega> Jymmm's a walking faraday cage o_O
[01:48:58] <Jymmm> lol
[01:50:20] <Jymmm> Now, if I could only make one for reality, I'd be rich!
[01:50:54] <Jymmm> "Escape life's daily frustrations and relax in our luxurious reality cage"
[01:51:00] <Jymmm> "Escape life's daily frustrations and relax in our luxurious reality proof cage"
[01:51:17] <asdfqwega> They already made that...it's called an asylum
[01:51:30] <Jymmm> Nah, they got mean ppl running those.
[01:52:29] <asdfqwega> I already know of a Reality-Impermeable Barrier
[01:52:46] <asdfqwega> Lots of people have them...they're called skulls
[01:52:47] <Jymmm> electric shock?
[01:52:51] <Jymmm> lol
[01:53:36] <asdfqwega> You can find the best ones in Washington DC
[01:54:00] <Jymmm> no shit, huh
[01:54:30] <Jymmm> somebody needs to bitchslap bush.
[01:54:48] <Jymmm> thank gawd there is a limit to how long one can be in office.
[01:55:16] <Jymmm> I guess i should say... thank Our Forfathers...
[01:56:21] <asdfqwega> Being in DC can screw up anybody
[01:56:43] <anonimasu> oh, if he's there for too much longer there will be a revolution
[01:57:07] <cradek> Jymmm: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c109:H.J.RES.24.IH:
[01:58:36] <Jymmm> OH WTF?!
[01:59:06] <cradek> you can't thank the forefathers for the 22nd amendment (it's much too new), but you can thank them that there's a very high bar to amend the constitution
[02:00:36] <Jymmm> *sigh*
[02:01:25] <Jymmm> I won't go into it, but that REALLY bothers me. 1st the patriot act (which should have NEVER come into play), and now this.
[02:01:44] <cradek> this is over a year old, you just missed it because it didn't hit the news
[02:02:02] <Jymmm> I dont watch news, but yeah I see it's feb2005.
[02:02:39] <cradek> I mean it wasn't publicized because everyone knew it was a ridiculous joke
[02:03:57] <Jymmm> If anything hits the floor, I don't consider it a joke.
[02:04:42] <cradek> well recently we had "I hope my approval ratings go up because I hate gay people" which similarly didn't make it into the constitution because of the hard rules for amendments
[02:05:28] <Jymmm> But that never hit the floor, did it?
[02:05:33] <cradek> it's good that the normal swing of favor isn't good enough to amend the constitution - you need a real majority of people who agree.
[02:05:40] <cradek> of course it did
[02:06:27] <Jymmm> I think I need to learn gunsmithing 101
[02:06:35] <cradek> haha
[02:06:58] <Jymmm> "Yeah you bastards, take all my guns... I 'll make more!"
[02:07:40] <Jymmm> It's sad... the only REAL thing I can think of to justify buying a lathe.
[02:07:59] <asdfqwega> I think there was a hackaday link - something about an electrically triggered derringer
[02:08:43] <asdfqwega> Instead of cap-n-ball...igniter-n-ball
[02:09:09] <cradek> "ballot box, soap box, ammo box: use them in order" (seen in someone's sig)
[02:09:34] <asdfqwega> I'm ashamed of you, Jymmm...haven't you already read and memorized:
[02:09:42] <asdfqwega> "Improvised Munitions"
[02:09:52] <asdfqwega> "Poor Man's James Bond"
[02:10:01] <asdfqwega> "Anarchists Cookbook"
[02:10:16] <asdfqwega> "Home-made C-4"
[02:10:33] <SWPadnos> four boxes: Soap Box, Ballot Box, Jury Box, Ammunition Box
[02:10:34] <asdfqwega> * asdfqwega glances over at bookshelf...
[02:11:28] <asdfqwega> Venting is allowable - speech is free. But it IS called "The Court of Last Resort" for a reason
[02:11:59] <asdfqwega> Catch-22: Bullets fly both ways.
[02:12:37] <cradek> Jymmm: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/D?c109:16:./temp/~c109jMChNx::
[02:13:00] <asdfqwega> What is this, 'Get Jymmm's Goat Day'?
[02:13:08] <cradek> nah
[02:13:28] <cradek> I just wanted to show him that it was a real resolution, since he asked
[02:13:29] <SWPadnos> "Temporary file not found. Display failed."
[02:13:33] <cradek> oops
[02:13:43] <SWPadnos> heh - I couldn't load the last one either
[02:13:55] <SWPadnos> had to search for it manually
[02:14:07] <asdfqwega> Loaded for me
[02:14:24] <SWPadnos> weird
[02:14:33] <asdfqwega> Yeah, really
[02:14:42] <SWPadnos> I probably have a borked java install or something
[02:15:29] <cradek> http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c109:H.J.RES.88:
[02:15:50] <cradek> this looks like a better url
[02:16:15] <Jymmm> Yeah, my gf just told me they have been trying to repeal the 22nd since the 90's
[02:17:08] <asdfqwega> ...and who is trying to repeal it?
[02:17:50] <cradek> asdfqwega: Mr. HOYER (for himself, Mr. BERMAN, Mr. SENSENBRENNER, Mr. SABO, and Mr. PALLONE)
[02:18:02] <asdfqwega> Nevermind me. I just like asking questions nobody really wants the answers to.
[02:18:08] <asdfqwega> Yes, but who are they?
[02:18:15] <SWPadnos> anyone who likes the current president
[02:18:23] <asdfqwega> I've never heard of them
[02:18:24] <SWPadnos> especially if they're in their second term
[02:18:49] <SWPadnos> (the pres, that is - not the resolution proponents)
[02:19:20] <asdfqwega> Sometimes I wonder why we don't have a similar limit on our legislators
[02:19:42] <asdfqwega> Besides the difficulty of getting them to vote themselves out of office ;)
[02:19:50] <SWPadnos> I don't think there is one on legislators, only the presidency
[02:19:53] <SWPadnos> heh
[02:20:06] <SWPadnos> for legislators, it would go state by state
[02:21:30] <asdfqwega> It's laughable, really
[02:21:56] <asdfqwega> No amount of limits, term or otherwise, can really stop them
[02:22:04] <asdfqwega> You just have to WATCH them
[02:22:11] <asdfqwega> They hate that, they really do
[02:22:20] <Jymmm> where's a grassy knoll when you need it
[02:23:25] <asdfqwega> Hardly a healthy attitude if you're trying to promote your ideas, Jymmm - and bullets fly both ways
[02:24:03] <Jymmm> asdfqwega you said it yourself... they are not going to vote themselves out of office.
[02:24:19] <asdfqwega> That's OUR job
[02:25:53] <Jymmm> After the Florida voting thing a few years ago, I dodn't know that not ALL of our votes count. I feel that's just wrong.
[02:26:07] <cradek> you mean ohio?
[02:26:28] <Jymmm> No, in florida... where they had a zillion recounts or something.
[02:27:06] <cradek> oh, I thought you meant the exit polls being 40% off where there were electronic voting machines
[02:27:16] <asdfqwega> How about Chicago, where the dead vote?
[02:27:46] <jmkasunich> well, on a non-political note... my gears are gashed!
[02:27:58] <Jymmm> jmkasunich is that a good thing?
[02:28:28] <jmkasunich> yeah, gashing is the first step where the gears actually have teeth
[02:28:36] <jmkasunich> next comes hobbing, to refine the tooth shape
[02:28:36] <Jymmm> ah, cool
[02:28:48] <cradek> yay
[02:29:07] <jmkasunich> thats the good news
[02:29:13] <asdfqwega> I had a mental image of jmk with a chisel and hammer, and vengence towards all things toothy and round
[02:29:23] <jmkasunich> the bad news is that the oil sight glass on my mill gave up the ghost
[02:29:35] <SWPadnos> eeeewww - leaky
[02:29:45] <asdfqwega> Duct tape
[02:29:51] <jmkasunich> asdfqwega: gashing - http://www.metalworking.com/DropBox/_2001_retired_files/Worm08.jpg
[02:29:55] <SWPadnos> (and not Louis and Mary)
[02:29:59] <cradek> what's an oil sight glass?
[02:30:16] <jmkasunich> its the little window that lets you see what the oil level in the gearbox is
[02:30:33] <jmkasunich> or in this case, its the little hole that lets most of the gearbox oil out
[02:30:33] <cradek> ah, like a motorcycle
[02:30:39] <cradek> argh
[02:30:44] <asdfqwega> And now you can see the level directly
[02:30:48] <cradek> did you hit it with something?
[02:30:57] <jmkasunich> no, its been going for years
[02:31:02] <SWPadnos> vibro-massage
[02:31:14] <Jymmm> jmkasunich is it glass or plastic?
[02:31:20] <cradek> heh, just get a rubber test-tube stopper
[02:31:25] <jmkasunich> its some kind of clear plastic, and 65 years of constant exposure to oil took its tool
[02:31:26] <jmkasunich> toll
[02:31:39] <Jymmm> jmkasunich is it thicker than .25?
[02:31:42] <Jymmm> .25"
[02:31:44] <jmkasunich> hard to say
[02:31:58] <jmkasunich> the clear part is attached to a steel part that is screwed into the gearbox
[02:32:16] <jmkasunich> I'm gonna see if I can get that out, its doesn't look good tho, seems like other parts are on top of it
[02:32:16] <Jymmm> jmkasunich I have some acrylic .250" here, if you need a disc, let me know
[02:32:30] <jmkasunich> Jymmm: thanks for the offer
[02:32:46] <jmkasunich> but I've got some lexan here, 1/4" and 1/8"
[02:33:09] <cradek> about what diameter is it?
[02:33:18] <Jymmm> jmkasunich this is cast acrylic, less prone to microfractures when around solvents.
[02:33:19] <jmkasunich> maybe an inch (the clear part)
[02:33:30] <jmkasunich> hmmm
[02:33:43] <jmkasunich> well, wait until I get it out and see what there is to see\
[02:33:45] <cradek> if you can get the mounting piece out and turn a little shoulder, you could put a plastic watch crystal in it
[02:34:08] <asdfqwega> Steal one off of a dial indicator :)
[02:34:14] <cradek> I fixed my dropped dial caliper that way...
[02:34:19] <jmkasunich> I know its thicker than that
[02:34:36] <cradek> it's not under any pressure right? just has to be oil tight
[02:35:37] <jmkasunich> yeah
[02:35:49] <jmkasunich> I dunno if there's an o-ring, or a press fit, or what
[02:35:53] <asdfqwega> Well, time to read a tarball of code, and run a meme filter and virus scan ^_^
[02:36:13] <jmkasunich> the glass/plastic part will be easy
[02:36:27] <jmkasunich> getting the steel ring out of the machine is gonna be the hard part
[02:36:50] <cradek> or getting it to seal again when you put it back in
[02:37:10] <Jymmm> silicon
[02:39:25] <cradek> so do you have both gears done or just one?
[02:39:37] <jmkasunich> its part numver 12799 on this drawing
[02:39:55] <jmkasunich> both (setup is 90% of the job, once the first is done the 2nd is a breeze)
[02:40:04] <cradek> i figured
[02:40:04] <jmkasunich> s/numver/number
[02:40:21] <cradek> umm, we can't see your drawing from here
[02:40:28] <jmkasunich> duh
[02:40:30] <jmkasunich> http://www.quantums.info/vannorm/page12.jpg
[02:40:33] <SWPadnos> yeah - I thought it was 12798
[02:41:34] <cradek> looks thin
[02:41:41] <jmkasunich> neither that drawing nor the manual I have hear seem to show any detail
[02:42:01] <jmkasunich> for example, the real thing is a _lot_ thicker than the drawing
[02:42:10] <cradek> you think it threads in?
[02:42:17] <jmkasunich> almost certain it does
[02:42:33] <jmkasunich> there are 4 1/8" or so holes on the face, probably for spanner wrench
[02:42:48] <cradek> aha
[02:43:06] <jmkasunich> but there is a guard that needs to be removed first
[02:43:37] <jmkasunich> and IIRC, once that comes off, I think the sight glass is obstructed by one of the bearing retainers for the first shaft
[02:43:54] <jmkasunich> only way to find out is to stop gabbing and go take the guard off
[02:44:02] <jmkasunich> back later
[02:44:05] <cradek> bye
[02:44:27] <cradek> eek, I just had a brief panic thinking it was sunday night
[02:44:32] <SWPadnos> argh
[02:44:38] <SWPadnos> phew - only Saturday
[02:44:39] <asdfqwega> Heh, don't do that
[02:44:48] <cradek> not panic exactly, more like a sense of dread
[02:46:35] <asdfqwega> ...but, since it's still Saturday, I'm going to make myself a really cold screwdriver
[02:47:13] <SWPadnos> hmmm. my screwdrivers (and all my other tools) get really cold in the winter. they;re not really any easier to use. ;)
[02:47:40] <jmkasunich> darn... I remembered correctly
[02:47:54] <SWPadnos> most people like that
[02:47:56] <jmkasunich> the sight glass is just barely underneath a bearing support
[02:47:56] <asdfqwega> * asdfqwega spritzes SWPadnos with OJ
[02:48:11] <jmkasunich> so the job is much more complex
[02:48:21] <SWPadnos> * SWPadnos licks the OJ off his face, just like Scooby-Doo
[02:48:46] <asdfqwega> * asdfqwega spritzes SWPadnos with cod liver oil
[02:48:57] <SWPadnos> * SWPadnos throws up on asdfqwega
[02:49:32] <asdfqwega> Mmm, right in my mouth....delicious.
[02:49:40] <SWPadnos> glad you like it
[02:49:54] <SWPadnos> just had sushi - it should be really good
[02:50:10] <asdfqwega> So...who's laughing, and who's recoiling in horror?
[02:50:20] <SWPadnos> heh
[02:50:23] <cradek> neither here
[02:50:59] <asdfqwega> Dang...tough audience
[02:52:03] <SWPadnos> oh well - it was getting pretty juvenile anyway
[03:13:37] <jmkasunich> well, got it apart
[03:13:55] <jmkasunich> the window turns out to be only about 1/16" thick
[03:14:17] <jmkasunich> 1.335 dia
[03:15:03] <jmkasunich> pressed against a flat fiber gasket by a threaded ring
[03:15:25] <jmkasunich> unfortunately the gasket was 65 years old and brittle, and it broke
[03:15:47] <cradek> is there a shoulder for a new o-ring?
[03:16:06] <jmkasunich> the gasket is almost 1.5" OD, and 1" ID
[03:16:14] <jmkasunich> and it mates with a face the same size
[03:16:25] <cradek> hmm, so you'll need something flat
[03:16:44] <jmkasunich> either that or a very thin o-ring
[03:16:58] <jmkasunich> 0.030 thick by 1.25 diameter would do the trick nicely
[03:17:15] <cradek> so how does the glass or plastic mount?
[03:17:33] <jmkasunich> wish I could draw it... anyway, here goes
[03:18:00] <jmkasunich> you got a hole in the casting, threaded 1.5" x something kinda fine (maybe 24 tpi)
[03:18:26] <jmkasunich> at the bottom of the hole is a step, down to 1.0" diameter
[03:18:49] <jmkasunich> the retainer is a ring, OD 1.5 x 24? thread, ID about 1", and about 1/4 thick
[03:19:10] <jmkasunich> so into the hole you stick the gasket, the window, and the ring
[03:19:34] <jmkasunich> tightening the ring presses the window and the gasket against the step in the bottom of the old
[03:19:45] <cradek> so the ring's back tightens right against the window
[03:20:00] <jmkasunich> back = inside surface, yes
[03:20:10] <cradek> is the ring's back nicely finished?
[03:20:24] <jmkasunich> yeah, machined
[03:20:24] <cradek> (I'm wondering if you could use glass)
[03:20:42] <jmkasunich> probably
[03:20:53] <jmkasunich> I could even lap the back of the ring if needed
[03:21:11] <jmkasunich> still need a compliant seal between the glass and the step in the casting
[03:21:40] <jmkasunich> gotta figure out what that thread actually is
[03:21:50] <cradek> why?
[03:22:00] <jmkasunich> the major diameter (OD of the ring) is 1.555
[03:22:19] <jmkasunich> any window (glass for instance) needs to fit past the minor diameter of the female threads in the casting
[03:22:51] <jmkasunich> duh, I can just go out and measure that
[03:22:56] <cradek> I guess that's important if you're going to use a thin o-ring
[03:22:58] <jmkasunich> I bet it will take a 1.5" disk
[03:23:12] <jmkasunich> its important if I'm gonna use glass
[03:23:24] <jmkasunich> can't turn down the OD of a glass disk if it needs to be 1.495
[03:23:38] <cradek> right
[03:23:47] <cradek> well you can, but ...
[03:24:06] <cradek> you said the old window was 1.335
[03:24:24] <jmkasunich> yeah, but it might have shrunk
[03:24:31] <cradek> true
[03:24:45] <jmkasunich> the OD of the gasket seems to be 1.500
[03:24:57] <jmkasunich> and I don't recall any trouble pulling it out past the threads
[03:25:17] <jmkasunich> (that's not when it broke, it broke while I was cleaning old oil sludge off of it)
[03:25:32] <jmkasunich> gonna measure the thread ID, back soon
[03:27:09] <jmkasunich> ID of the thread is 1.510, so a 1.5 disk will fit in
[03:27:16] <jmkasunich> depth is 0.375
[03:27:31] <jmkasunich> the ring is 0.255
[03:27:45] <jmkasunich> so the disk plus gasket/o-ring needs to be less than 0.120
[03:29:13] <jmkasunich> thinest 1.5" dia glass disk in Mcmaster is 1/8
[03:29:17] <jmkasunich> no room for gasket
[03:32:40] <Jymmm> jmkasunich silicon in in place?
[03:33:09] <jmkasunich> that would be a last resort
[03:33:17] <jmkasunich> I absolutely hate silicon
[03:33:24] <Jymmm> really? how come?
[03:33:53] <jmkasunich> for one thing, how is the next guy gonna get the sight glass back out and clean the glop off?
[03:34:43] <cradek> I found 1.6, 1.75, 2.0 glass disks, no 1.5
[03:35:19] <jmkasunich> how thick?
[03:35:36] <cradek> 2mm maybe
[03:36:16] <cradek> I do have domed plastic 38.1mm (1.500")
[03:36:26] <jmkasunich> oh, you mean "I found in my stash", not "I found in a catalog"
[03:36:28] <cradek> don't know if it would work or not, it might
[03:36:31] <cradek> yeah
[03:36:50] <jmkasunich> some plastics like oil, some don't
[03:36:53] <cradek> right
[03:37:25] <Jymmm> 25mm 1.5mm - would that work?
[03:37:36] <jmkasunich> its very tempting (for now) to make a thin sheet metal disk, and drill a 1/32 hole in the center
[03:37:40] <cradek> no he needs 1.5"
[03:37:48] <jmkasunich> install it, add oil till it drips out the hole, done
[03:38:00] <ratbert> [Global notice] I am a fat asshole, who loves abuse, die
[03:38:33] <cradek> that would sure get you by
[03:39:02] <jmkasunich> oops, forgot about the seal issue
[03:39:11] <cradek> you'd still need to go get an o-ring
[03:39:29] <Jymmm> http://rolynoptics.thomasnet.com/category/flat-glass-and-windows?&plpver=10
[03:39:50] <Jymmm> they might not have it on thomasnet... http://rolynoptics.thomasnet.com/viewitems/flat-glass-and-windows/flat-glass?&pagenum=2&sortid=1071
[03:40:14] <cradek> heh I didn't even think of looking through the stash of optical stuff
[03:40:27] <cradek> chances are not good of finding anything flat enough though
[03:40:36] <jmkasunich> problem with thomas (usually) is that you'll find 10 vendors who would be happy to sell you a truckload if you are a business
[03:40:48] <jmkasunich> nobody who will take a credit card number and send you one
[03:40:48] <Jymmm> they have $2.37 pricing
[03:41:02] <Jymmm> jmkasunich ask for a sample then
[03:41:12] <cradek> I hate playing that game

[10:45:31] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> mmkay, thanks
[10:47:55] <alex_joni> np
[11:14:02] <A-L-P-H-A> sup peeps!
[11:14:11] <A-L-P-H-A> alex_joni, you play suduko?
[11:14:32] <alex_joni> not really
[11:14:41] <anonimasu> :)
[11:14:46] <A-L-P-H-A> hmm... I need to find someone smart to challenge.
[11:14:54] <A-L-P-H-A> sudokucombat.com
[11:15:19] <alex_joni> I need to go lay the table
[11:15:23] <anonimasu> howcome?
[11:15:30] <alex_joni> lunchtime ;)
[11:15:31] <anonimasu> hm, my spindle is finished
[11:15:36] <anonimasu> I just need a lock washer
[11:15:42] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, what kind of spindle?
[11:15:46] <anonimasu> mill spindle
[11:15:51] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu... highspeed?
[11:15:59] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, photos? plans? designs? cad drawings?
[11:16:02] <anonimasu> well, 5600rpm..
[11:16:04] <anonimasu> no
[11:16:15] <A-L-P-H-A> I need a motor for my spindle.
[11:16:23] <anonimasu> I'm doing huydralic
[11:16:26] <A-L-P-H-A> it's supposed to do 15K+ rpm... (small endmills)
[11:16:31] <anonimasu> I'
[11:16:36] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu... how's that work?
[11:16:45] <anonimasu> a pump + motor and a huydralic motor mounted at the spindle
[11:16:54] <anonimasu> and a oil cooler
[11:17:00] <A-L-P-H-A> why'd you go hydralic motor? just wondering.
[11:17:12] <anonimasu> beucause having to move 4kw around brings more issues
[11:17:18] <anonimasu> err a 4kw..
[11:17:33] <A-L-P-H-A> I've never seen a hydralic motor.
[11:17:35] <anonimasu> and the huydralic motor weighs 1kg..
[11:17:39] <anonimasu> or 600g
[11:17:43] <A-L-P-H-A> for real?
[11:17:45] <anonimasu> yeah
[11:17:51] <A-L-P-H-A> take some photos! :)
[11:17:54] <anonimasu> hehe ;)
[11:17:58] <anonimasu> though later
[11:18:07] <A-L-P-H-A> how much is the pump?
[11:18:19] <A-L-P-H-A> what's the pressure going into that motor?
[11:18:19] <anonimasu> http://www2.northerntool.com/product-1/200321041.htm
[11:18:33] <anonimasu> I think about 150bar..
[11:18:39] <anonimasu> cant remember what we did calcs on
[11:18:44] <fenn> i'm thinking of using an airmotor
[11:18:53] <anonimasu> that's a larger one..
[11:19:07] <anonimasu> but it'll deliver somewhere around 100kw max..
[11:19:12] <anonimasu> the one I have
[11:19:18] <A-L-P-H-A> 1000rpm? geared up to give you 5.6K?
[11:19:26] <anonimasu> ah, no, mine's faster :)
[11:19:30] <anonimasu> that's just a hydraulic motor
[11:19:35] <A-L-P-H-A> says it's 1000rpm.
[11:19:38] <A-L-P-H-A> max.
[11:19:46] <A-L-P-H-A> and 8 lbs!
[11:19:54] <A-L-P-H-A> huge torque.
[11:20:02] <anonimasu> x§yeah
[11:20:14] <anonimasu> I'm calculating 5600rpm and 4kw..
[11:20:39] <anonimasu> it'll end up very silent too
[11:21:03] <anonimasu> I'm looking for a source of the toolchanger grippers for making a drawbar
[11:21:07] <A-L-P-H-A> still looking for your motor. heh
[11:21:24] <anonimasu> it's from some company called specma huydraulics..
[11:22:19] <anonimasu> I doubt you can find it on the net
[11:22:21] <A-L-P-H-A> swede?
[11:22:23] <anonimasu> ordered it through work
[11:23:03] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu... that's kind of interesting to me... seriously.
[11:23:22] <anonimasu> I went with it because I didnt feel like having a L coupling and gearbox in the mill
[11:23:28] <A-L-P-H-A> I'd need a resevoir, pump+motor unit, spindle motor, hoses...
[11:23:32] <anonimasu> it ends up almost totally silent too
[11:23:49] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, this is a cool idea to me...
[11:24:09] <anonimasu> :)
[11:24:16] <anonimasu> ask and I'll tell you more..
[11:24:19] <A-L-P-H-A> what happens for an emegeny shutoff?
[11:25:11] <anonimasu> just close the valve that provides oil to the spindle..
[11:25:34] <A-L-P-H-A> silinoid?
[11:25:35] <anonimasu> or turn off the pump..
[11:25:39] <anonimasu> no hydraulic valve
[11:25:45] <A-L-P-H-A> but there'd still be pressure in the hoses.
[11:26:23] <anonimasu> all depends on how you build it..
[11:26:25] <fenn> you better hope there isnt pressure in the hoses
[11:26:48] <A-L-P-H-A> fenn, there'd HAVE to be pressure in the hoses... how else would you get it to drive the mechanism.
[11:27:12] <fenn> hydraulic systems should be rigid or you risk getting blasted with high pressure jet if the hose springs a leak
[11:27:31] <fenn> if there's no elasticity in the system there wont be enough energy to hurt you
[11:27:44] <fenn> * fenn shrugs helplessly
[11:27:57] <A-L-P-H-A> hmmmmmmmm.
[11:28:18] <A-L-P-H-A> so the pressure is all based on the flow of liquid?
[11:28:36] <A-L-P-H-A> very different then air systems.
[11:28:41] <giacus> morning
[11:28:47] <fenn> if the pump is off there should be no pressure
[11:28:53] <A-L-P-H-A> fenn... okay.
[11:29:05] <fenn> some hydraulic systems have "accumulators" which are like air tanks
[11:29:07] <A-L-P-H-A> fenn, so is this relatively safe?
[11:29:47] <fenn> those systems are less safe because if it springs a leak you still have 150 bar of pressure behind the leak
[11:29:52] <anonimasu> hm, you can switch that back to tank when you turn it off..
[11:32:17] <anonimasu> brb, i need to do some cleaning
[11:33:05] <alex_joni> fenn: we're selling coating pumps (paint at up to 530 bars)
[11:33:13] <alex_joni> so I understand your concearn
[11:33:46] <A-L-P-H-A> green is the pump, pink it the reservoir, blue thing is the motor...
[11:34:07] <fenn> * fenn hisses at evil nasty java
[11:34:45] <alex_joni> bbl
[11:34:46] <A-L-P-H-A> I may write a nice flash app, to have a drawboard.
[11:34:58] <fenn> flash is even worse
[11:35:04] <A-L-P-H-A> but everyone has flash. :)
[11:35:26] <A-L-P-H-A> fenn, you're choices of drawing are limited really to those two platforms.
[11:35:33] <fenn> SSI and imagemaps baby
[11:35:52] <A-L-P-H-A> fenn, stop complaining, and write your own. :P hehe.
[11:36:00] <fenn> its not like you're going to be doing sophisticated drawings with that anyway
[11:36:13] <anonimasu> iab
[11:36:57] <anonimasu> well, I'm going to have a valve leading the pressure back to tank in case something goes wrong..
[11:37:47] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, probably a better idea to have a valve that shunts to the reservoire, and a kill on the motor.
[11:37:58] <A-L-P-H-A> what's the cost to the whole setup like this?
[11:37:58] <anonimasu> yeah
[11:38:17] <A-L-P-H-A> the reservoire can just be really any tank right?
[11:38:21] <anonimasu> I dont know honestly
[11:38:22] <anonimasu> yeah
[11:40:02] <anonimasu> I'm going to be monitoring the pressure with the plc too for safety
[11:40:44] <anonimasu> most hydralics will end up behind the machine with covers
[11:40:55] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: I cant see that drawing
[11:41:11] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, should still be there... says you're not connected.
[11:41:21] <A-L-P-H-A> says only I'm connected... with "1" viewer.
[11:41:24] <anonimasu> just wait a sec :)
[11:41:45] <A-L-P-H-A> holy crap... the pumps are $550cdn + tax!!!
[11:42:07] <anonimasu> what kind of pump?
[11:42:18] <A-L-P-H-A> wooo... sec. I'll share the pdf.
[11:42:33] <anonimasu> and how many l/min
[11:42:42] <anonimasu> olk
[11:42:57] <anonimasu> installing j2re now
[11:43:21] <A-L-P-H-A> http://www.lloydleung.com/HYD-CAN.pdf uploading it now... will be finished in 1min...
[11:43:36] <A-L-P-H-A> 50
[11:43:43] <A-L-P-H-A> 40
[11:43:51] <A-L-P-H-A> 30
[11:44:02] <A-L-P-H-A> 20
[11:44:11] <A-L-P-H-A> 10
[11:44:22] <A-L-P-H-A> done
[11:44:27] <anonimasu> ok
[11:44:28] <anonimasu> looking
[11:45:06] <anonimasu> it's one like E that I have
[11:45:14] <anonimasu> electric power pack
[11:45:21] <A-L-P-H-A> page what?
[11:45:26] <anonimasu> 9
[11:45:38] <anonimasu> that price cant be right
[11:45:39] <A-L-P-H-A> that's only 3.8GPM.
[11:45:52] <anonimasu> it's similiar..
[11:46:01] <A-L-P-H-A> why can't hte price be right?
[11:46:09] <A-L-P-H-A> high/low?
[11:46:11] <anonimasu> because it seems insanely expensive
[11:46:22] <A-L-P-H-A> this is retail.
[11:46:23] <anonimasu> but, I have no idea really
[11:46:48] <anonimasu> how many cc is a gallon
[11:46:54] <A-L-P-H-A> lets check mcmaster then.
[11:47:00] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, don't forget, that's CDN.
[11:47:02] <anonimasu> ah
[11:47:03] <A-L-P-H-A> so minute 10%.
[11:47:33] <anonimasu> yeha that's right
[11:48:12] <anonimasu> hm, just had to try it :)
[11:48:26] <A-L-P-H-A> heh. feel free.
[11:48:37] <A-L-P-H-A> it's a fun little app... great for conveying ideas.
[11:48:40] <anonimasu> your drawingg's right
[11:48:42] <anonimasu> yeah
[11:48:56] <anonimasu> it ends up being cheaper then a regular spindle anyway
[11:49:04] <fenn> really..
[11:49:09] <anonimasu> yeah
[11:49:43] <anonimasu> but I get nice prices on all the stuff
[11:49:53] <anonimasu> but, it shouldnt be end up too expensive
[11:50:04] <anonimasu> you can use old pumps/motors if you look in the right places
[11:50:08] <A-L-P-H-A> so are you using an electric pump?
[11:50:19] <anonimasu> electric motor that couples to a gear pump
[11:50:56] <A-L-P-H-A> 930rpm hyraulic motor = $190CDN... page 16.
[11:52:15] <anonimasu> going to meet dad later today, so I'm gonna ask him aboutit
[11:52:49] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, learn and share! :)
[11:53:08] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: the only thing I dont know is the price ;)
[11:53:52] <anonimasu> my spindle is like this
[11:54:03] <anonimasu> -|<>-
[11:54:16] <A-L-P-H-A>
[11:54:29] <anonimasu> ok
[11:54:37] <A-L-P-H-A> skull and bone is clear
[11:54:39] <anonimasu> im there now :)
[11:54:40] <fenn> dont.. do it!
[11:54:47] <anonimasu> fenn: ?
[11:54:52] <fenn> * fenn screeches
[11:55:02] <fenn> * fenn flings poop at the drawboard
[11:55:35] <A-L-P-H-A> he doesn't like java.
[11:55:41] <anonimasu> one radial and 2 angular contact bearings.. in duplex
[11:55:42] <A-L-P-H-A> fenn, would you be constructive!
[11:56:03] <A-L-P-H-A> Quite impeding on my learning. :P
[11:56:09] <anonimasu> preloaded
[11:56:19] <anonimasu> it should work nicely
[11:56:27] <anonimasu> and survive heavy passes
[11:57:02] <anonimasu> hopefully
[11:57:20] <A-L-P-H-A> well... the motor should be like a few HP right?
[11:57:27] <anonimasu> yeah
[11:57:43] <anonimasu> mine's at 5.44
[11:57:54] <anonimasu> err ~5hp
[11:58:07] <A-L-P-H-A> and at the spindle how many HP will be at 5.6Krpm?
[11:58:15] <fenn> A-L-P-H-A: a recent study shows that immaturity is necessary in order for learning to take place: http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2006/06/23/immature_hum.html?category=human&guid=20060623110030
[11:58:42] <A-L-P-H-A> how many GPM is the motor, and how much can your pump supply?
[12:01:53] <A-L-P-H-A> just seems simple enough to use an electric motor.
[12:06:48] <anonimasu> iab
[12:07:02] <anonimasu> 15.95l/min
[12:07:03] <anonimasu> is the pump
[12:07:37] <A-L-P-H-A> 4.2GPM
[12:07:46] <anonimasu> 15.95/3.5cc(motor)=5582rpm

[12:07:57] <anonimasu> that's 1:1 without gearing
[12:08:11] <A-L-P-H-A> wow... that motor can handle that much?
[12:08:15] <anonimasu> and the pump is 11cc
[12:08:16] <anonimasu> yeah
[12:08:49] <anonimasu> it's about 400eur for pump and motor
[12:08:59] <A-L-P-H-A> $600CDN.
[12:09:26] <A-L-P-H-A> 1€ = ~1.50CDN
[12:09:30] <anonimasu> 4.5kw as motor
[12:09:50] <anonimasu> there isnt too many losses in the system either so over 4kw at the spindle..
[12:09:50] <A-L-P-H-A> oh! €dropped.
[12:09:59] <anonimasu> way over :)
[12:10:01] <A-L-P-H-A> 1€ = $1.40573CDN
[12:10:23] <A-L-P-H-A> http://www.xe.com/
[12:10:36] <anonimasu> if you need more speed you can gear, too, but I'm not as I probaly dont have feed for any faster
[12:12:09] <A-L-P-H-A> I haven't slept yet... :(
[12:12:36] <A-L-P-H-A> Now I need to go check out a computer system... argh... all this so I can buy a 2 gig flash drive.
[12:12:38] <A-L-P-H-A> bbl.
[12:13:23] <anonimasu> hehe
[12:13:23] <anonimasu> ok
[12:14:14] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: is the whole setup unreasonable?
[12:14:35] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: since it's so light tilting the spindle isnt unreasonable either :)
[12:42:38] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu? what's unreasonable?
[12:42:49] <A-L-P-H-A> I'm lost
[12:58:46] <A-L-P-H-A> bbl
[14:19:16] <jepler> oh cool http://googtube.blogspot.com/2006/06/rubiks-cube-solving-robot.html
[14:24:42] <alex_joni> heh, love those encoders :D
[14:25:37] <alex_joni> that looks like an old amd (k5 probably)
[14:28:51] <alex_joni> jepler: but this one works better ;) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TC7-lgyoA54&mode=related&search=
[14:55:30] <A-L-P-H-A> speed cubing... impressive.
[14:56:07] <A-L-P-H-A> people are still connected to my drawboard? heh.
[14:56:11] <A-L-P-H-A>
[15:02:27] <A-L-P-H-A> muahahah! England Rulez!
[15:04:11] <A-L-P-H-A> someone want to explain to me how the ranking systems work in the worldcup?
[15:04:36] <alex_joni> A-L-P-H-A: there are several stages
[15:05:01] <alex_joni> first they play groups (4 teams in each group, each play each. 1 points for ties, 3 points for victory)
[15:05:11] <A-L-P-H-A> okay.
[15:05:14] <alex_joni> afterwardsteh first 2 in each group qualify further
[15:05:20] <A-L-P-H-A> so they only play each other in that same group.
[15:05:28] <alex_joni> initially yes
[15:05:32] <A-L-P-H-A> afterwards?
[15:05:38] <A-L-P-H-A> the lower two, get eliminated.
[15:05:42] <alex_joni> afterwards the first from each group plays a second from another group
[15:05:53] <alex_joni> and from there on it's a piramid
[15:06:02] <alex_joni> only one match, till there is a winner
[15:06:23] <A-L-P-H-A> k... this is where I'm confused... I understood the first stage.
[15:06:26] <alex_joni> 1/8, 1/4, semifinal and final
[15:06:26] <A-L-P-H-A> this second stage...
[15:06:46] <alex_joni> well, you have 16 teams
[15:06:57] <alex_joni> after the groups (8 groups x 2 teams)
[15:07:08] <A-L-P-H-A> oh... to this is the tournaments... you lose you're out now?
[15:07:09] <alex_joni> so you'll have 8 matches, and 8 winners
[15:07:14] <alex_joni> right
[15:07:26] <alex_joni> then 4 matches, 4 winners, and so on
[15:07:56] <A-L-P-H-A> so... it was the funky 8 groups of 4... and now it's 16... then 8, then semi's... then finals.
[15:08:02] <alex_joni> right
[15:08:11] <A-L-P-H-A> okay! that makes sense now. Thanks aj.
[15:08:27] <alex_joni> np
[15:08:31] <A-L-P-H-A> alex_joni, who you cheering for? :)
[15:08:43] <alex_joni> I'm not really chearing :D
[15:09:15] <A-L-P-H-A> was RO even in?
[15:09:26] <alex_joni> not this time
[15:10:38] <A-L-P-H-A> I really like the english jersey.
[15:18:40] <A-L-P-H-A> one stupid thing about soccer, the players fake their falls/pushes and other BS like that
[15:24:25] <A-L-P-H-A> pretty http://www.deviantart.com/view/14080073/
[15:25:15] <ottos> hello gents..
[15:25:18] <A-L-P-H-A> woohoo! someone Torontonian!
[15:25:56] <ottos> yup.. close..
[15:26:07] <A-L-P-H-A> [11:31:30] * Joins: ottos (n=ottos@Toronto-HSE-ppp3896694.sympatico.ca)
[15:26:15] <A-L-P-H-A> I'm in pickering
[15:26:26] <A-L-P-H-A> some other fool is from Oshawa
[15:26:37] <A-L-P-H-A> that's bout us from Ontario... :(
[15:26:42] <ottos> nice..
[15:26:58] <ottos> ya.. like the 3 musketeers..
[15:27:00] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> but there are plenty of us here from borkborkbork country!
[15:27:24] <A-L-P-H-A> Lerneaen_Hydra... yeah... why is that?
[15:28:00] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> A-L-P-H-A: why there are many from borkborkbork-land? how would I know that?
[15:28:22] <fenn> A-L-P-H-A: wow its amazing how many corporate/national/religious logos you can make with that deviantart script
[15:28:23] <A-L-P-H-A> Lerneaen_Hydra... don't you go to the borkborkbork meetings? You should know if you've been invited. ;P
[15:28:32] <ottos> no kangaroo assotiation allowed.. :D
[15:28:34] <A-L-P-H-A> fenn, cool script though.
[15:28:44] <A-L-P-H-A> ottos, that's for the aussies.
[15:28:50] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> :(... I havn't been to them yet
[15:29:11] <A-L-P-H-A> we canucks just eat beaver tails and enjoy maple syrup, in our igloos.
[15:29:31] <A-L-P-H-A> Lerneaen_Hydra... you should be more nice to them... maybe they'll invite you, and share hot cocoa with you.
[15:30:13] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ooh! sounds promising
[15:30:26] <A-L-P-H-A> hehehe... didn't ikea get sued, for not drawing female (stick) figures in their assembly diagrams. I'm pretty sure it wasn't successful, and probably a clever ploy for free publicity.
[15:30:56] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> A-L-P-H-A: I hadn't heard of that, sounds like many of the other similar suits going around...
[15:31:14] <jmkasunich> I didn't know stick figures had gender
[15:31:51] <A-L-P-H-A> jmkasunich, I'm not making it up... I read that months ago.
[15:32:06] <SWPadnos> in the words of Jessica Rabbit: "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way"
[15:32:23] <giacus> * giacus rendering ..
[15:32:52] <jmkasunich> by definition: if it has a figure, it ain't a stick! ;-)
[15:33:13] <ottos> nice..
[15:33:51] <A-L-P-H-A> Swedish furniture-maker IKEA was accused of sexual discrimination for featuring only men in the instruction manuals that come with its flat-pack coffee tables and bookcases, reports Reuters.
[15:33:51] <A-L-P-H-A> Because it fears offending Muslims with pictures of women, the company routinely uses only men or cartoon figures of indeterminate sex in its manuals.
[15:33:51] <A-L-P-H-A> Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik of Norway, however, called the practice discriminatory and is demanding that it stop.
[15:34:10] <jmkasunich> thats just dumb
[15:34:26] <jmkasunich> esp the part about offending muslims
[15:34:46] <jmkasunich> I think they should have women in bikinis ;-)
[15:34:50] <SWPadnos> well, if you want to sell to muslims, it's best to not offend them
[15:34:52] <A-L-P-H-A> http://www.google.com/search?hs=Avq&hl=en&lr=&client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&q=IKEA+sexual+discrimination&btnG=Search
[15:35:02] <A-L-P-H-A> hahah...
[15:35:15] <SWPadnos> similarly, putting in little devil-people would probably reduce sales to evangelical christians ;)
[15:35:19] <A-L-P-H-A> so offend a small fractional segment, or offend 1/2 the population?
[15:35:24] <A-L-P-H-A> hehehe
[15:35:39] <A-L-P-H-A> SWPadnos. non-evangelical christians.
[15:36:05] <SWPadnos> roman catholics?
[15:36:27] <A-L-P-H-A> re-read what you typed. :)
[15:36:52] <jmkasunich> A-L-P-H-A: what he typed makes sense to me
[15:36:56] <A-L-P-H-A> maybe they should make them into cartoon blobs instead... like barbapopas.
[15:37:05] <SWPadnos> yeah - it still makes sense to me, too ;)
[15:37:19] <SWPadnos> that would offend people who like Casper
[15:37:24] <SWPadnos> oh, wait
[15:37:28] <A-L-P-H-A> No it doesn't... how's little devil people going to help sell to bible thumpers?
[15:37:28] <SWPadnos> :)
[15:37:38] <SWPadnos> ... reduce sales ...
[15:37:40] <jmkasunich> it would _reduce_ sales
[15:37:43] <A-L-P-H-A> barbapapas...
[15:39:06] <A-L-P-H-A> See, that's a poorly worded sentence... as you could interrupt that to as "...reduce (all) sales to (specifically) evangelical christians"
[15:39:33] <jmkasunich> grammar police alert!
[15:39:37] <SWPadnos> sure. put in images that are offensive to (group), and sales to (group) will be reduced ...
[15:40:04] <SWPadnos> assuming that they can look at the manual before buying ;)
[15:40:25] <jmkasunich> put in images that are offensive to group A (small) and attractive to group B (large) and net sales will increase
[15:40:27] <A-L-P-H-A> SWPadnos... honestly... it made no sense to me, till we put in some punctuation. Not trying to be an ass... but it really didn't make sense to me.
[15:40:31] <jmkasunich> hence, the bikinis
[15:40:54] <SWPadnos> bikinis would piss off both muslims *and* evangelicals ... ;)
[15:41:00] <SWPadnos> but I'd be happy
[15:41:05] <ottos> forget bikinis , how about hairy armpits..
[15:41:05] <A-L-P-H-A> the sad thing is, ikea furniture does require instructions...
[15:41:16] <giacus> hello
[15:41:23] <jmkasunich> religious fundies of all flavors aren't that differnt
[15:41:24] <giacus> what's the topic ? :)
[15:41:32] <A-L-P-H-A> and they're damn hard to read... I put together my friend's dresser... and she was happy with it, but I did screw up the "first" time I put it together.
[15:41:50] <SWPadnos> http://www.alwayswow.com/archive/2005/03/types_of_job_sk.html
[15:41:54] <A-L-P-H-A> giacus, how you're getting a vasectomy.
[15:42:08] <A-L-P-H-A> buahhaha. :)
[15:42:10] <giacus> A-L-P-H-A: forgot it
[15:42:27] <giacus> maybe you're familiar with it :D
[15:42:41] <A-L-P-H-A> argh...
[15:42:48] <giacus> not ?
[15:43:14] <giacus> well, found a nice feature in blender
[15:43:26] <A-L-P-H-A> a friend of mine, said something bad to me... we were talking about kids.. I told her "Luckily I don't have any!" her reply was "That you know of!"
[15:43:28] <giacus> a movie can be added to a plane :P
[15:43:35] <A-L-P-H-A> that made me feel kind of sick to my stomach... :(
[15:43:43] <giacus> rendering the movie ..
[15:44:11] <A-L-P-H-A> giacus, 3DS could do that since version 3... and we're talking 3D Studios, not 3D Studios Max.
[15:44:28] <A-L-P-H-A> That was... 1994...
[15:44:40] <giacus> that's nice in blender, since you can import movies or audio
[15:44:52] <giacus> then re-elaborate it with cinelerra
[15:44:58] <giacus> and its coool :P
[15:45:43] <A-L-P-H-A> "re-elaborate"?
[15:45:59] <giacus> elaborate again
[15:46:03] <SWPadnos> resample?
[15:46:10] <A-L-P-H-A> <confused>
[15:46:12] <SWPadnos> replay?
[15:46:13] <giacus> exactly
[15:46:16] <giacus> perfect !
[15:46:29] <giacus> that ..
[15:46:31] <giacus> :)
[15:47:15] <A-L-P-H-A> giacus, you may like this... http://www.deviantart.com/view/14080073/
[15:47:28] <giacus> looking
[15:47:52] <fenn> lol i actually know what a barbapapa is
[15:48:24] <A-L-P-H-A> it's a blob... that I could think of... I didn't want to blob... I wanted to be more obscure.
[15:48:47] <giacus> no, I hate flash ..
[15:49:05] <giacus> really bad, closed proprietary format
[15:49:38] <giacus> bleah ^_-
[15:50:15] <ottos> bit off topic, for Ontario peeps, someone knows a good spot for cycle helmets.?
[15:50:20] <fenn> its probably the only flash thing i've thought worth actually looking at
[15:50:26] <A-L-P-H-A> ottos, umm... MEC?
[15:50:57] <A-L-P-H-A> King and Peter downtown.
[15:51:39] <ottos> any perso refer.?
[15:53:18] <A-L-P-H-A> ottos? you know what MEC is?
[15:53:27] <A-L-P-H-A> Mountain Equipment Coop... www.mec.ca
[15:53:46] <A-L-P-H-A> http://www.mec.ca/Products/product_listing.jsp?FOLDER%3C%3Efolder_id=2534374302693161&bmUID=1151251199968
[15:54:17] <A-L-P-H-A> I have an oro... if I start cycling again, I'd buy a new one... as foam degrads over time... and I'm sure the helmet is near useless to protect my nogg'n
[15:54:45] <ottos> checking... cheers.
[15:55:38] <A-L-P-H-A> they should have a bunch of different colors and stuff... they will also be one of the lower prices... not the lowest, but on the lower end.
[15:56:12] <A-L-P-H-A> if you're up town... Bayview and Cummer has a bike shop... they'd sell helmets, but I don't know how much.
[15:56:17] <A-L-P-H-A> any bike shop would as well.
[15:56:39] <A-L-P-H-A> Canadian Tire, Walmart, Zellers, would probaly have them as well.
[15:57:35] <A-L-P-H-A> hmm... odd. http://www.fox30online.com/news/local/story.aspx?content_id=5D7C3B7D-A2EC-437B-80F4-FF319371B0E0
[15:57:46] <ottos> wrong cycle... moto..
[15:57:58] <A-L-P-H-A> OH!
[15:59:32] <A-L-P-H-A> Any motorbike shop. hahaha.... there's one in Scarborough... umm... sheppard, between mccowan and midland... yamaha or honda cycleworld? I think...
[16:05:11] <ottos> been there.. not impressed..
[16:05:57] <A-L-P-H-A> no clue... not into bikes myself... there's always Oshawa... probably way more selection out that way...
[16:06:06] <A-L-P-H-A> considering hells angels and what not.
[16:06:59] <ottos> .. :D
[16:07:35] <ottos> I'm wondering is someone at this time working at improoving the traj planner?
[16:07:48] <A-L-P-H-A> hog helmet? or sport helmet?
[16:08:10] <A-L-P-H-A> ottos, there was some work... I don't know what happened, or any progression.
[16:08:38] <ottos> sport.. like the HJC.. shoei, etc..
[16:09:53] <A-L-P-H-A> hmm... I dunno where my friend bought his...
[16:10:11] <A-L-P-H-A> beckham scores!!!!
[16:10:29] <A-L-P-H-A> http://digg.com/links/Google_Maps:_British_Military_Base_in_Indian_Ocean_ that's whacked
[16:10:59] <ottos> eng. equador right..?
[16:11:07] <A-L-P-H-A> yup
[16:12:00] <ottos> good game..?
[16:13:45] <A-L-P-H-A> not bad...
[16:17:08] <A-L-P-H-A> silly brits. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/hampshire/5110742.stm hahahaha.
[17:35:10] <jepler> OK, hopefully that's all the disruption for the cvs server
[17:35:34] <cradek> that was fast
[17:36:52] <jepler> I had to move the servers temporarily into a different room
[17:36:57] <alex_joni> heh
[17:37:25] <jepler> .. and now I have to move the rest of the contents of that room
[17:37:38] <jepler> the plumber comes on tuesday and the computer room is right below the bathroom he's working on
[17:38:22] <cradek> what kind of a half-rate hosting company is this anyway?
[17:39:43] <jepler> "zero-rate" you mean
[17:39:45] <cradek> yayyyyy
[17:40:47] <cradek> http://timeguy.com/cradek-files/emc/lathecomp.png
[17:41:43] <cradek> uncompensated and compensated paths for tool type 2
[17:42:29] <cradek> crap, it's not right
[17:42:47] <cradek> well, maybe it is
[17:43:35] <cradek> yes, yes it is
[17:43:38] <cradek> I think
[17:44:11] <alex_joni> probably possibly
[17:44:17] <cradek> haha
[17:44:31] <cradek> the "right" two arcs are uncompensated
[17:44:36] <cradek> the "left" are the comp path
[17:44:51] <cradek> yes I think it's right
[17:47:19] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> it's correct (AFAICT) if the arcs with the larger radius are uncompensated arcs
[17:47:30] <cradek> they are
[17:47:36] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> that is to say, shallower curves are uncompensated
[17:47:50] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok, that sounds very promising :D
[17:47:59] <cradek> no, the larger radius arcs are the compensated path
[17:48:03] <cradek> you've got it backwards
[17:48:12] <cradek> tool type 2, pointing to the upper left
[17:48:31] <cradek> haha wait
[17:48:36] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> what is the line representing?
[17:48:41] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> tool origin path?
[17:48:41] <cradek> one of them gets a smaller radius, one larger
[17:48:45] <cradek> yes tool origin
[17:49:00] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> which is located "outside" of the tool
[17:49:04] <cradek> yes
[17:49:14] <cradek> to the upper left of the programmed path
[17:49:26] <alex_joni> cradek: to make it easily comprehendable, I think AXIS needs to show the tool shape & size ;)
[17:49:30] <cradek> so the lower arc when compensated gets a larger radius, the upper one gets a smaller radius
[17:49:43] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, yeah. of course
[17:49:43] <cradek> alex_joni: I think it will show at least the shape
[17:50:04] <alex_joni> great
[17:50:05] <cradek> I think it's absurd but it's also working :-)
[17:50:13] <alex_joni> what is absurd?
[17:50:21] <cradek> the origin being outside the tool
[17:50:30] <cradek> but I understand why it's that way
[17:50:46] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> cradek: would it be easy to get coloring in axis for compensated and uncompensated lines by some easy setting?
[17:51:18] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> not that it should matter later, a typical OP. just types G41/42 and things just work
[17:51:27] <cradek> it would be possible, but not trivial
[17:51:45] <cradek> yes you don't normally see both paths
[17:51:47] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok, I wouldn't deem it very important
[17:51:54] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> exactly
[17:53:37] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, is there any chance of a GUI to change colors later on?
[17:53:45] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> rather than the command-line settings?
[17:54:09] <cradek> it's certainly not a priority
[17:54:49] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok
[17:55:27] <etla> hi all, anyone tried running python on winXP ?
[17:56:38] <alex_joni> etla: I tried with AXIS, but gave up after a couple of days
[17:56:49] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> cradek: did the angle image make sense? would using something like that be suitable?
[17:57:01] <etla> alex: I'm getting some 16-bit DOS error
[17:57:10] <etla> googling for it right now...-
[17:57:18] <alex_joni> what version of python?
[17:57:33] <etla> not sure exactly, must have come with cygwin
[17:58:26] <alex_joni> oh, didn't like that one
[17:58:28] <cradek> Lerneaen_Hydra2: I think the approach is good but I would probably make +z (which is consistently to the right) be zero
[17:58:43] <etla> alex: ok, I'm downloading the latest one now from python.org
[17:59:24] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> cradek: by +Z would that make the current axis -X?
[18:00:14] <cradek> yes
[18:00:41] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok. any reason for choosing that axis?
[18:01:08] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I couldn't think of any reason to choose any axis at all, I just took one arbitrarily
[18:01:15] <cradek> in math 0 degrees is to the right, and conveniently on lathes +z is "always" to the right, unlike +x which is unpredictable
[18:01:20] <cradek> http://timeguy.com/cradek-files/emc/lathecomp-orientation6.png
[18:01:31] <cradek> highlighted path is the compensated one
[18:02:09] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> that profile looks suspicious to me
[18:02:21] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> at least, that image does (orientation 6)
[18:02:21] <cradek> it did to me too, but after thinking about it I think it's right
[18:02:45] <cradek> think of a round tool with a "handle" pointing down
[18:02:47] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> all moves along only one axis have zero compensation
[18:03:09] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, it's tooltype 9/8?
[18:03:12] <cradek> trace the upper tip of this along the right path
[18:03:16] <cradek> no it's 6
[18:03:22] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> which was that?
[18:03:29] <cradek> the top center on your drawing
[18:03:48] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, then the profile is correct. I was thinking tooltype 2
[18:03:54] <cradek> ah
[18:04:34] <cradek> I'm a little stunned but I think this is actually done
[18:04:39] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> tools like that have their maximum compensation when going +-Z
[18:04:47] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yes, that profile looks correct
[18:04:48] <cradek> right
[18:05:02] <Jymmm> * Jymmm read that as: <cradek> I'm a little stoned...
[18:05:08] <cradek> haha
[18:05:15] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> EMC for lathes is really progressing! :D
[18:05:19] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> haha
[18:06:23] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> now all you need is radius compensation for non-round tool edges, like wiper-type curtters! (jk)
[18:06:44] <cradek> I don't know what this is, and I don't want to know
[18:06:59] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, it's a joke
[18:07:08] <cradek> oh good
[18:08:08] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> there are tools that have a very-close-to-round tooltip (inside the normal roundness tolerance) that have a much larger radius when machining along X or Z, giving higher feedrates or surface finish than normal cutters
[18:08:48] <cradek> so the end "radius" isn't round?
[18:08:52] <jmkasunich> so the radius varies depending on the cutting angle?
[18:08:58] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> jmkasunich: exactly
[18:09:08] <cradek> those will not be supported!
[18:09:26] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> however the deformation is so small you ignore it WRT compensation
[18:09:37] <cradek> ok then they are supported
[18:09:40] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> it's inside the tolerance for roundness
[18:09:52] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> compared to normal cutters
[18:10:16] <CIA-8> 03cradek 07lathe_offsets * 10emc2/configs/nist-lathe/nist-lathe.tbl: tool origin/shape compensation
[18:10:17] <CIA-8> 03cradek 07lathe_offsets * 10emc2/src/emc/rs274ngc/interp_convert.cc: tool origin/shape compensation
[18:10:18] <Jymmm> * Jymmm lol @ cradek... support is based upon the amount of tequilia and asprin cradek has in stock.
[18:11:02] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, how do I set up my config to load two parports? it didn't like "parport1, parport 2"
[18:11:37] <SWPadnos> loadrt hal_parport cfg="addr1,addr2" (I think)
[18:12:43] <alex_joni> it's in the manual ;)
[18:12:53] <alex_joni> EMC2_User_Manual.pdf
[18:13:06] <cradek> I think that has changed a bunch of times
[18:13:15] <jmkasunich> yeah, I think so too
[18:13:29] <jmkasunich> enough that I feel the need to check the source before I comment ;-/
[18:15:03] <jmkasunich> cfg="addr1 [dir1] addr2 [dir2]" etc, no commas, use spaces or underscores
[18:15:24] <jmkasunich> dir is "in" or "out", the default is out
[18:15:32] <jmkasunich> that sets the direction of the 8 data pins
[18:15:44] <jmkasunich> with "out" you get 12 outputs and 5 inputs
[18:15:59] <jmkasunich> with "in" you get 4 outputs and 13 inputs
[18:19:38] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> right, ok. thanks
[18:19:44] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> that was in the manual?
[18:19:45] <Jymmm> so you can't make one paraport ALL input?
[18:20:04] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> Jymmm: hardware limitations AFAIK
[18:20:07] <alex_joni> Jymmm: not all 17 pins
[18:20:36] <alex_joni> there are 4 fixed outputs, 5 fixed inputs
[18:20:39] <jmkasunich> right
[18:20:45] <alex_joni> and the 8 data pins, which usually can be swapped
[18:20:50] <jmkasunich> only the 8 bits fo the "data" port can be swapped
[18:20:54] <alex_joni> although that's only for bidirectional ports
[18:20:55] <Jymmm> ah
[18:21:08] <alex_joni> older ports can't do that
[18:21:09] <jmkasunich> right, although anything newer than about 1995 is bidirectional
[18:21:30] <Jymmm> jmkasunich for all 17 you mean?
[18:21:32] <jmkasunich> in some cases, the bios can be set disable bidirectional mode....
[18:21:40] <jmkasunich> no, NEVER can all 17 be swapped
[18:21:48] <Jymmm> ok
[18:21:52] <jmkasunich> older ones you can't swap anything
[18:22:06] <Jymmm> gotcha
[18:22:28] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> jmkasunich: and the order in which they are named defines what is parport.0 and parport.1?
[18:22:35] <jmkasunich> Lerneaen_Hydra: YES
[18:22:39] <jmkasunich> yes
[18:22:44] <jmkasunich> (sorry for the shout)
[18:22:56] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> haha
[18:23:06] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> np
[18:23:08] <Jymmm> Heh, at least eh order isn't based upon BASE ADDR, like PCI is =)
[18:24:00] <Jymmm> err I said that worng, nm
[18:24:05] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> so "0x378 out <port2> in" is valid?
[18:24:11] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: The config string consists of a hex port address, followed by an optional direction, repeated for each
[18:24:14] <alex_joni> port. The direction is either .in. or .out. and determines the direction of the physical pins 2 through
[18:24:17] <alex_joni> 9. If the direction is not specified, the data group defaults to output. For example:
[18:24:20] <alex_joni> emc2# bin/hal_parport 278 378 in 20A0 out
[18:24:38] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> right
[18:24:41] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> got it
[18:24:42] <alex_joni> page 48 in the EMC2_User_Manual
[18:24:50] <jmkasunich> alex is quoting from the fine manual
[18:25:05] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ah, excelent
[18:25:31] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> that seems to be more and more like required reading
[18:25:39] <Jymmm> alex_joni whats's 20a0 ?
[18:26:05] <jmkasunich> the hex number that follows 209f?
[18:26:10] <alex_joni> some odd address?
[18:26:11] <Jymmm> lol
[18:26:19] <Jymmm> Yeah, but what is it
[18:26:28] <alex_joni> parport hex address
[18:26:33] <alex_joni> what is 378 ?
[18:26:38] <Jymmm> that's a base addr
[18:26:39] <alex_joni> a more common one..
[18:26:46] <alex_joni> same for 20A0
[18:26:57] <Jymmm> a fscked up on
[18:26:59] <Jymmm> one =)
[18:27:05] <alex_joni> not really
[18:27:18] <alex_joni> if you have one of those PCI parports, then this probably is what you'll want
[18:29:31] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> my pci parport i cff0
[18:30:04] <Jymmm> This is what I'm used to...
[18:30:06] <Jymmm> 0040:0000 F8 03 F8 02 E8 03 E8 02-BC 03 78 03 78 02 C0 9F
[18:30:47] <alex_joni> Jymmm: wot's that?
[18:31:15] <SWPadnos> that's the DOS map of serial land parallel port addresses
[18:31:20] <SWPadnos> serial and ...
[18:31:27] <Jymmm> serial ports base addresses - paraport base addresses
[18:31:42] <alex_joni> lol
[18:34:48] <jmkasunich> dunno what reminded me of this, but its amusing: http://www.metalworking.com/DropBox/_2003_retired_files/TruckSide.jpg
[18:35:19] <alex_joni> LOL
[18:35:20] <jmkasunich> (that happened where I work)
[18:35:46] <Jymmm> loaded it woth a forklift and when the forlift backed out it tipped?
[18:36:02] <jmkasunich> no, tried to load it (with an electric pallet jack)
[18:36:08] <jmkasunich> the jack was too heavy
[18:36:22] <jmkasunich> http://www.metalworking.com/DropBox/_2003_retired_files/TruckBack.jpg
[18:36:40] <jmkasunich> when the jack weight went off the dock and onto the truck, wheelie time
[18:37:07] <Jymmm> lol, too funny... wth is with the ramps?
[18:37:21] <jmkasunich> fortunately nobody was hurt - the jack is a walk behind, and the operator wound up standing on the dock with a dumb look on his face
[18:37:41] <alex_joni> bet he did
[18:37:43] <jmkasunich> thats to let the little euro-truck match up with a full size truck dock
[18:38:04] <Jymmm> lol, oh man... looks cheesey to me =)
[18:38:12] <jmkasunich> note how far forward the rear axle of that little truck is
[18:38:24] <jmkasunich> its probably only rated to haul a ton or so
[18:38:29] <Jymmm> that should have been the warning sign that somethings wrong =)
[18:38:47] <cradek> wow he was lucky to not be hurt
[18:38:56] <jmkasunich> they should have just used a manual pallet jack
[18:39:02] <SWPadnos> they should have had a couple of fat guys sit in the cab ;)
[18:39:10] <jmkasunich> I'm sure the actual pallet wasn't over a couple hundred pounds
[18:39:40] <cradek> I'm trying to picture how you can recover from this situation
[18:39:54] <jmkasunich> I didn't get to see the recovery process, they got pissed at everybody standing around gawking and yelled "go back to work"
[18:39:56] <SWPadnos> get a couple of sumo wrestlers to sit in the cab - problem solved
[18:40:09] <cradek> SWPadnos: how??
[18:40:09] <SWPadnos> if you have a suitable ladder
[18:40:15] <jmkasunich> SWPadnos: nope, the pallet jack slid back _under_ the dock overhang
[18:40:32] <SWPadnos> well, that can be a problem - the truck is rear wheel drive though, right? ;)
[18:40:41] <cradek> hahaha
[18:40:55] <cradek> vrooooooooommmmSMASH
[18:41:00] <SWPadnos> yep ;)
[18:41:01] <cradek> boing boing boing
[18:41:03] <alex_joni> boing
[18:41:11] <jmkasunich> I think the recovery involved a tow-truck and a come-along
[18:41:12] <alex_joni> cradek: you were faster again :D
[18:41:21] <jmkasunich> tow truck to support the front of the other truck
[18:41:52] <SWPadnos> yep - a tow truck can ease the small truck out, but I'd imagine that the tailgate and the item on the jack (not to mention the jack itself) didn't escape unscathed
[18:41:53] <jmkasunich> come-along to haul the pallet jack forward enough to be out from under the dock edge, and to make the truck want to sit on four wheels again
[18:41:58] <jmkasunich> then lower with the towtruck
[18:42:28] <Jymmm> If that was my truck, screw your pallet jack!
[18:42:41] <Jymmm> rotf
[18:43:12] <jmkasunich> well, considering that it was the truck driver who was driving _our_ pallet jack, _without_ permission, I think it was more "screw your truck" ;-)
[18:44:02] <Jymmm> I still say *I* would NOT drive up those ramps
[18:44:17] <jmkasunich> they use them all the time
[18:44:21] <cradek> the ramps look like they're holding just fine
[18:44:40] <jmkasunich> they're quite beefy
[18:44:47] <Jymmm> it's not the holding part, it's changing the center of gravity
[18:45:33] <jmkasunich> I honestly think the ramps were meant to be used with longer trucks
[18:45:42] <jmkasunich> that thing is almost a toy compared to real trucks
[18:46:18] <jmkasunich> big box, but if you filled it with anything but marshmallows it would be overloaded
[18:46:25] <Jymmm> lol
[18:46:44] <Jymmm> have you ever put marshmellows in the microwave?
[18:47:07] <Jymmm> You get the Stay Puff Marchmellow Man!
[18:47:09] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> um, I seem to be having some trouble
[18:47:12] <Jymmm> marshmellow
[18:47:56] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I have a boc with jogwheels and buttons. I've checked the functionality with an osciliscope and a multimeter
[18:48:20] <jmkasunich> somewhere is a picture taken from directly in front of the truck, with a guy standing under the front axle pretending he lifted the front up
[18:48:29] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> it works fine and all. switches are pullup, encoders give out good ttl signals
[18:48:31] <Jymmm> lol
[18:48:51] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> halmeter though gives FALSE for all input pins that I've got stuff attached to
[18:49:09] <jmkasunich> you sure you have the port address right?
[18:49:19] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I'm using the integrated
[18:49:25] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I wrote 378 as adress
[18:49:40] <jmkasunich> and its worked before (for normal step/dir maybe) with that address?
[18:49:41] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> "loadrt hal_parport cfg="cff0 out 378 in""
[18:49:54] <cradek> is the right format 378 0x378?
[18:49:58] <cradek> ^ or
[18:50:00] <jmkasunich> I dunno
[18:50:04] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> It's worked with that port, I don't recall if I had 378 or 0x378
[18:50:11] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> in the manual they had 378
[18:50:17] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> default is 0x378
[18:50:18] <jmkasunich> do a dmesg, you should see a note about "exported 2 parports" or something
[18:50:28] <jmkasunich> or an error message if the format is screwy
[18:50:31] <cradek> loadrt hal_parport cfg="0x0378"
[18:50:35] <cradek> from "max"
[18:50:48] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> from max?
[18:50:55] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, a config
[18:50:57] <jmkasunich> config called max
[18:50:57] <cradek> my config
[18:50:58] <SWPadnos> last time I looked at the code, it discarded the leading 0x
[18:51:03] <cradek> ok
[18:51:04] <SWPadnos> so either would work
[18:51:19] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> Hmm.. I'
[18:51:24] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ll test with the other port
[18:51:29] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I know that one works now
[18:52:20] <SWPadnos> one sec - you had this thing working on 378 before, right?
[18:52:55] <jmkasunich> can you pastebin your hal files?
[18:53:05] <jmkasunich> actually, first...
[18:53:15] <jmkasunich> pastebin or paste here, the output of halcmd show funct
[18:54:05] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> testing
[18:54:09] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> is this visible=
[18:54:17] <SWPadnos> the order of that losdrt line should have the PCI port as parport.0, so things should just work if the external stuff is moved to the other port
[18:54:22] <SWPadnos> loadrt
[18:54:44] <CIA-8> 03cradek 07HEAD * 10documents/scratch.txt: test
[18:55:07] <Jymmm> When milling something, how much waste is typical? (excluding the recycling factor)
[18:55:12] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> it seems to work with my PCI parport
[18:55:26] <jmkasunich> Lerneaen_Hydra: please post the halcmd show funct
[18:55:39] <jmkasunich> Jymmm: not enough info
[18:55:47] <jmkasunich> sometimes I mill a few thou off of something
[18:56:16] <cradek> sometimes I ruin the whole thing, so up to 100%
[18:56:22] <jmkasunich> otoh, I've heard of aerospace parts where they load a 2000lb slab into the machine and when its done two men pick up the finished part and carry it away
[18:56:40] <Jymmm> jmkasunich: yeah, like that.
[18:57:09] <Jymmm> Is that something you dont consider at all? Just pass the cost along rather than worry about it?
[18:57:22] <jmkasunich> its all part of design engineering
[18:57:31] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> http://pastebin.ca/71424
[18:57:43] <jmkasunich> the aerospace guys care about the weight thats gonna fly, so they machine away everything they can
[18:57:55] <jmkasunich> raw material cost is irrelevant in comparison
[18:58:01] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> users 0 seems rather disconcerting
[18:58:03] <jmkasunich> other parts have other priorities
[18:58:20] <jmkasunich> exactly
[18:58:25] <jmkasunich> thats what I wanted to check
[18:58:31] <jmkasunich> you are only running the code that reads one port
[18:58:38] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh. ok.
[18:58:41] <jmkasunich> somewhere in your hal files there are addf lines
[18:58:45] <jmkasunich> that add the functions to a thread
[18:59:05] <jmkasunich> either change from addf parport.0.read to addf parport.read-all, or add new lines for port 1
[18:59:27] <Jymmm> so other than cradek's 100%, it's really not a factor? I'm not talking using a telephone pole to make a toothpick or anythign like that.
[18:59:34] <jmkasunich> halcmd show threads will also show you a differnet view of what is going on (a list of the functions you are running)
[18:59:56] <jmkasunich> Jymmm: it all depends
[19:00:40] <jmkasunich> machining time costs money, raw materials cost money
[19:00:58] <jmkasunich> if you can make the part you need with less raw materials and less machine time, you win
[19:02:40] <jmkasunich> thats why people cast and forge things - nearer the final shape, less machining to do
[19:02:51] <alex_joni> or weld :D
[19:02:59] <jmkasunich> yeah
[19:03:02] <alex_joni> from smaller/simpler parts
[19:03:08] <Jymmm> That I understand, but is there a point where you say screw the waste becasue you can machine the parts faster if it's not a factor?
[19:03:40] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> unless I'm machining gold/platinum/silver or something like that I don't really care about the cost. then again, I only make <10 parts of each bit
[19:04:10] <jmkasunich> Jymmm: if waste = chips, then probably more waste = more machining time
[19:04:16] <alex_joni> jmkasunich: I'm probably too lazy to look it up, but is it any faster to add the parport.0.read/write functions then the read-all/write-all ones?
[19:04:31] <jmkasunich> probably about the same
[19:04:42] <jmkasunich> the -all ones just loop and call the individual ones
[19:04:53] <alex_joni> ok, so if there's only one it shouldn't matter?
[19:04:59] <jmkasunich> no hal function overhead, but hal function overhead is pretty small
[19:05:19] <jmkasunich> if there's only one, -all will be a tiny bit slower because of loop overhead
[19:05:44] <alex_joni> ok..
[19:10:12] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I get an error after adding my parport.1
[19:10:30] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> HAL: ERROR: function 'parport.1.read' is not reentrant
[19:10:57] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> should I have the same base thread for both ports?
[19:10:58] <jmkasunich> that means you tried to add it twice
[19:11:16] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[19:11:18] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> silly me
[19:11:24] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> that should be a -1
[19:11:47] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> and write
[19:12:07] <jmkasunich> tried to add read twice instead of read and write ?
[19:13:01] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yes
[19:13:03] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> now it works
[19:13:21] <jmkasunich> I've done that more times than I'm willing to admit
[19:13:31] <jmkasunich> (thats why I recognized the error message so quick)
[19:13:56] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> haha
[19:14:00] <alex_joni> and I probably should admit I tried to make it work without adding the functions to a thread
[19:14:01] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok ;)
[19:14:13] <alex_joni> and I looked and looked, and decided the port is busted
[19:14:23] <alex_joni> ;-)
[19:17:07] <jmkasunich> I need to quit procrastinating - I have milling to do

[19:18:19] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> woo!
[19:18:20] <alex_joni> no
[19:18:20] <Jymmm> temporarily?
[19:18:24] <alex_joni> Jymmm: no
[19:18:37] <jmkasunich> seems like the flood is over
[19:19:10] <robin_sz> where is that les_w?
[19:19:30] <Jymmm> jmkasunich: More of a unusable remaining shell than chips (in response to <jmkasunich> Jymmm: if waste = chips, then probably more waste = more machining time)
[19:19:39] <jmkasunich> yeah
[19:19:49] <jmkasunich> (saw it the first time, even in the flood)
[19:19:53] <robin_sz> anyone know much about designing reflectors for lamps?
[19:20:01] <Jymmm> jmkasunich couldn't tell.
[19:20:04] <jmkasunich> black isn't a good color
[19:20:07] <alex_joni> robin_sz: paper ones count?
[19:20:30] <robin_sz> like, how would you make a paralell beam from a 150mm long bulb
[19:20:48] <robin_sz> some sort of modified parabola?
[19:20:54] <jmkasunich> cylindrical bulb to rectangular beam?
[19:21:09] <robin_sz> linear bulb
[19:21:15] <robin_sz> 150mm long
[19:21:18] <robin_sz> 9mm dia
[19:21:26] <jmkasunich> ok, cylindrical
[19:21:36] <robin_sz> to make a searchlight like beam
[19:21:49] <jmkasunich> not gonna work very well
[19:21:56] <robin_sz> sigh
[19:22:04] <jmkasunich> for a searchlight you want as close to a point source as you can get
[19:22:09] <jmkasunich> your bulb is more of a line source
[19:22:16] <Jymmm> flood or spot beam ?
[19:22:32] <robin_sz> hmm
[19:22:35] <jmkasunich> how big of a reflector can you use?
[19:22:45] <robin_sz> as big as I need I guess
[19:22:47] <jmkasunich> if its large wrt 150mm then it could work
[19:22:55] <robin_sz> right
[19:23:15] <jmkasunich> assume a parabola - there is a single focal point on axis that gives a parallel beam
[19:23:23] <robin_sz> right
[19:23:34] <jmkasunich> move closer or farther away and the beam diverges (or convergers, then diverges)
[19:23:54] <jmkasunich> as the reflector gets bigger, the divergence from moving 75mm one way or the other is less
[19:23:59] <robin_sz> right
[19:24:11] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> any idea as to how much current a parport input sinks?
[19:24:18] <jmkasunich> depends on the board
[19:24:22] <robin_sz> 20ma typically
[19:24:26] <robin_sz> TTL
[19:24:32] <jmkasunich> but could be less
[19:24:37] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> eugh.
[19:24:40] <jmkasunich> to play it safe, assume 10mA or less
[19:24:40] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> awful!
[19:24:48] <jmkasunich> what are you trying to do with it?
[19:24:51] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, I meant input
[19:24:53] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> not output
[19:25:03] <jmkasunich> depends on the pullup
[19:25:10] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> outputs I'm only taking 1mA from
[19:25:16] <jmkasunich> there may or may not even _be_ an internal pullup
[19:25:29] <alex_joni> jmkasunich: short question
[19:25:30] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> currently I've got a 3.3kO pullup
[19:25:40] <jmkasunich> so about 1.5mA then
[19:25:42] <alex_joni> I have an transister connected to the parport which commands a relay
[19:25:42] <jmkasunich> alex: shoot
[19:25:56] <alex_joni> it all works great, unless I switch off the PC
[19:25:58] <robin_sz> jmkasunich, I happen to have a 150mm krypton discharge lamp, we managed to light it first time off the laser PSU we built, so we thought we'd make a fun toy with it
[19:26:10] <alex_joni> then the relay goes on by itself
[19:26:22] <robin_sz> jmkasunich, obviously it has to be water cooled in a flow tube, but thats not so hard
[19:26:24] <jmkasunich> alex: pnp, npn? how connected
[19:26:45] <alex_joni> jmkasunich: honestly? it's been 2 weeks :D
[19:26:47] <jmkasunich> how big a reflector can you make easily then?
[19:26:53] <robin_sz> jmkasunich, and you would not believe how bright and white a krytpon is ...
[19:27:11] <alex_joni> jmkasunich: I think Vcc -> relay -> trans -> Gnd
[19:27:33] <alex_joni> and then parport -> res. -> transistor base
[19:28:10] <jmkasunich> Vcc - relay - trans collector, trans emitter - ground, parport - res - trans base
[19:28:20] <robin_sz> jmkasunich, not sure, not thought that much .. in 2D a parabola is ieasy, just a carefully formed sheet
[19:28:24] <alex_joni> jmkasunich: yeah, NPN
[19:28:26] <jmkasunich> with a freewheel diode from trans collector to vcc
[19:28:48] <jmkasunich> should work then
[19:28:53] <robin_sz> jmkasunich, this lamp is 8KW krypton, so its pretty impressive
[19:29:01] <alex_joni> ok, so I only need to add the freewheel diode?
[19:29:10] <jmkasunich> I assume Vcc is some external supply (otherwise the relay would go off when the PC goes off)
[19:29:28] <jmkasunich> alex: the diode doesn't explain your symptoms
[19:29:28] <alex_joni> right
[19:29:37] <jmkasunich> its just to protect the transistor from inductive kick
[19:29:42] <alex_joni> Vcc is some 12ish volts
[19:29:53] <jmkasunich> are the two grounds (PC and vcc) connected?
[19:30:05] <alex_joni> yeah
[19:30:21] <jepler> add a pull-down from the transistor base to gnd?
[19:30:23] <alex_joni> I was thinking of adding a simple buffer
[19:30:26] <alex_joni> or that
[19:30:27] <jmkasunich> robin_sz: how about 2D: two shiny sheets 150mm apart, with a 150mm wide strip making a parabols
[19:30:38] <jmkasunich> lamp is 90 degrees to the beam
[19:30:46] <alex_joni> jepler: but that will drain more current from the parport when switched high
[19:30:55] <alex_joni> so maybe something like 27k ?
[19:30:59] <jmkasunich> not much
[19:31:13] <jmkasunich> this is a transitor, not a fet, right?
[19:31:16] <alex_joni> right
[19:31:21] <jmkasunich> so the base voltage when on is only 0.6V
[19:31:42] <jmkasunich> add 10K from base to ground, you need 60uA more current
[19:31:53] <alex_joni> ok, 60uA seems safe :D
[19:32:23] <jmkasunich> robin_sz: you ever seen a solar hot-dog cooker?
[19:32:28] <jmkasunich> make that in reverse ;-)
[19:32:39] <alex_joni> jmkasunich: lol, is there such a thing? (solar hot-dog cooker)
[19:32:43] <jmkasunich> yes
[19:33:09] <jmkasunich> http://www.energyquest.ca.gov/projects/solardogs.html
[19:33:20] <alex_joni> heh
[19:33:26] <alex_joni> crazy world :D
[19:34:20] <jmkasunich> I've seen a big one somebody made for fun, it was more of a solar hot-dog burner
[19:34:54] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> uh, how much of a pullup do I need?
[19:35:23] <jmkasunich> what is the signal source? an encoder? or a switch? or?
[19:35:28] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I get +5 and gnd when I measure the pins with a voltmeter, but when connecting to the parport I get false constantly
[19:35:30] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> an encoder
[19:35:50] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> currently with 3.3kohm pullup (what they recomended for ttl)
[19:36:14] <jmkasunich> not clear... you put the meter between the signal pin and ground, and as you turn the encoder slowly the meter goes from +5 to 0 and back?
[19:36:23] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yes
[19:36:41] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> it looks like it should when connected to the voltmeter
[19:36:52] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yet it doesn't work when connected to the parport
[19:37:02] <jmkasunich> you don't actually get 5.000 and 0.000, right?
[19:37:28] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: did you connect to an input pin?
[19:38:02] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yes, I'm measuring to pin 3
[19:38:21] <alex_joni> pin3 is output usually.. if you didn't set the parport as 'in'
[19:38:31] <jmkasunich> I'm assuming he did
[19:38:31] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I get 5.00 and 0.18
[19:38:36] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I did
[19:38:45] <jmkasunich> ok, so the signal is definitely at the pin
[19:38:54] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> my switches on 11 and 12 work
[19:39:05] <alex_joni> oh.. so the parport probably works
[19:39:09] <jmkasunich> ok, 11 and 12 are "normal" inputs
[19:39:13] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[19:39:27] <alex_joni> halcmd show pin parport
[19:39:32] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> halmeter has pin 3 listed as in
[19:39:46] <jmkasunich> I wonder if the port is either old (can only do output on pins 2-9) or configured as a standard parport in the bios (and thus output only on 2-9)
[19:39:46] <alex_joni> ok, sure it's the right port? you had 2 I think..
[19:40:08] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yes, I'm looking at parport.1.pin-03-in
[19:40:20] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> and parport.1.pin-11-in works
[19:40:26] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> so it's the correct port
[19:40:30] <jmkasunich> if its on the mobo, the bio setting needs to be bidir, or EPP, or ECP, _not_ SPP
[19:40:31] <alex_joni> ok, so check what jmk said ;)
[19:40:39] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh!
[19:40:39] <jmkasunich> s/bio/bios
[19:40:46] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> what should it be
[19:40:48] <alex_joni> s/bios/BIOS/
[19:40:53] <jmkasunich> ;-P
[19:40:54] <alex_joni> bidir, EPP or ECP
[19:40:59] <alex_joni> NOT SPP
[19:41:07] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> what's s/bios/BIOS ?
[19:41:08] <jmkasunich> there's an echo in here!
[19:41:23] <jmkasunich> s/foo/bar means substitute bar for foo
[19:41:29] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, ok
[19:41:36] <jmkasunich> used when somebody makes a typo and wants to correct themselves
[19:41:41] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ah, ok
[19:42:01] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> any difference between EPP or ECP?
[19:42:05] <alex_joni> assuming you know sed or whatever script uses s/foo/bar/
[19:42:21] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: lots of difference, not that you need to worry though
[19:42:29] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> alex_joni: mmkay. brb
[19:42:32] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> reboot
[19:42:43] <jmkasunich> SPP, bidir, EPP, and ECP are all parport modes, from oldest to newest
[19:43:33] <jmkasunich> robin_sz: you got quiet... are you polishing sheet metal?
[19:48:50] <jmkasunich> robin_sz: http://www.hoodville.org:8080/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=2649&g2_serialNumber=1&g2_GALLERYSID=53a49c114a3b99b9a07b827779672767
[19:48:52] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> it was set to ECP. I've set it to bi-directional now
[19:49:30] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> and now it works! :D
[19:49:34] <jmkasunich> yay!
[19:49:35] <alex_joni> coo
[19:49:39] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> any idea as to why?
[19:49:48] <jmkasunich> I didn't know ECP was incompatible with bidir
[19:49:48] <alex_joni> ECP might be funny :)
[19:49:54] <jmkasunich> learn something new every day
[19:50:04] <jmkasunich> ECP is for strange stuff like parport connected zip drives, etc
[19:50:14] <jmkasunich> obsolete now since everybody uses USB
[19:50:18] <alex_joni> ECP and EPP are basicly some hardware assited flowcontrol protocols
[19:50:21] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh. ok
[19:50:26] <alex_joni> for high speed transfers
[19:50:30] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, ok
[19:50:39] <alex_joni> and you usually set them up at BASE address and BASE+0x400
[19:50:42] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> so direct IO shouldn't be affected
[19:50:50] <alex_joni> it shouldn't..
[19:50:58] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> but in this case it was
[19:51:13] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: should has really very little meaning around PC's

[19:51:47] <alex_joni> I have goggles like those
[19:51:57] <alex_joni> lol @ googles
[19:51:59] <jmkasunich> the reflector is about 2meters (or more)
[19:52:40] <alex_joni> jmkasunich: seems google is affecting all our lives
[19:52:42] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh my
[19:52:53] <alex_joni> if it would only tell me wtf my car keys are :((
[19:53:03] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> poor alex_joni... :(
[19:53:19] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: usually it wouldn't be a problem, I have a spare
[19:53:34] <jmkasunich> more like 3.5 meters judging from this pic http://www.hoodville.org:8080/gallery2/main.php?g2_view=core.DownloadItem&g2_itemId=2660&g2_serialNumber=2&g2_GALLERYSID=461e9f8df0eb9f7879865d9fbf7cd545
[19:53:37] <alex_joni> but the license is there too, and a colegue should have gone to germany in 2 days
[19:53:53] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> can't you use a passport as ID?
[19:53:57] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> in sweden you can
[19:54:04] <alex_joni> for yourself you can
[19:54:06] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: the whole idea of running the spundle with hydraulics
[19:54:07] <alex_joni> but not for the car
[19:54:29] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: and it's still in leasing, so it belongs to the leasing company officialy, and has some temporary numbers on it
[19:54:35] <alex_joni> so they WILL check the license
[19:54:37] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, in sweden you can use the passport as ID for the whole car, without getting fined
[19:55:04] <jmkasunich> 15:22 jmkasunich: I need to quit procrastinating - I have milling to do
[19:55:07] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: yeah, I know.. but you have regular printed car licenses.. so I guess .. :)
[19:55:15] <jmkasunich> 16:00 jmkasunich: still on IRC
[19:55:17] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> but you have?
[19:55:24] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> jmkasunich: haha
[19:55:35] <jmkasunich> * jmkasunich goes
[19:55:39] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: soem with all kinds of security features on them, issued by some authority
[19:55:42] <alex_joni> jmkasunich: later
[19:55:48] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> uh, would stealing the code from maxnc be all that I have to do to get jogwheels?
[19:55:58] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> alex_joni: eugh. rfid too?
[19:56:08] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: only from 2007
[19:56:23] <anonimasu> why not implement a real jogwheel that you can release
[19:56:25] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yucky
[19:56:25] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: re max, not much else to do
[19:56:34] <alex_joni> anonimasu: there is support in emc2
[19:56:37] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> anonimasu: huh?
[19:56:42] <alex_joni> anonimasu: just need to hook up the hal stuff
[19:56:44] <anonimasu> alex_joni: yea I know
[19:57:12] <anonimasu> but why us Lerneaen_Hydra2 contemplating copying it from maxnc?
[19:57:37] <alex_joni> because not every config has a jogwheel in it by default
[19:57:43] <alex_joni> and he wants to add it to his config
[19:57:59] <alex_joni> anonimasu: only the HAL signals & links
[19:58:02] <anonimasu> ah
[19:58:07] <anonimasu> I thought it were a commercial controller..
[19:58:21] <alex_joni> no, max is a config cradek made for his max-nc mill
[19:58:28] <anonimasu> ah ^_^
[19:58:42] <anonimasu> heh pardon my stupidity
[19:58:47] <alex_joni> np
[19:58:52] <alex_joni> you're excused :D
[19:58:56] <etla> what do I do to get around "You need to be identified to join that channel" on freenode ?
[19:59:03] <alex_joni> identify
[19:59:13] <alex_joni> try /msg NickServ IDENTIFY user pass
[19:59:18] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> alex_joni: I can't seem to find any code for jogwheels in max
[19:59:25] <alex_joni> encoder
[19:59:46] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: 1st step make sure the encoder works
[19:59:56] <etla> alex: nickname not registered...
[20:00:02] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> alex_joni: I get input like I should from halmeter

[20:03:04] <alex_joni> etla: http://freenode.net/faq.shtml#userregistration
[20:06:05] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> alex_joni: what defines which axis is controlled for each jogwheel?
[20:06:31] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: you only use one usually.. don't you?
[20:06:40] <etla> L_H: there are jogwheel, increment, and enable inputs for each axis
[20:06:44] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yes, but I have one for X and one for Z
[20:06:53] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I also have for rpm and feed
[20:06:55] <alex_joni> ok.. so connect 2
[20:06:59] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> but that will come later
[20:07:02] <alex_joni> one to X and one to Z
[20:07:49] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> so num_chan=2?
[20:07:52] <alex_joni> right
[20:07:59] <alex_joni> and duplicating the rest
[20:08:03] <anonimasu> hm, the ones I've seen have a selector switch
[20:08:08] <anonimasu> for xyz and the jogwheel
[20:08:45] <etla> anon: yes, wire a "1" to only one of the enable inputs based on the position of the selector switch
[20:09:06] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: same goes to you :
[20:09:07] <alex_joni> :D
[20:09:26] <alex_joni> but if you have a fixed jogwheel for X and one for Z your enables will never get 0
[20:09:28] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I don't have a switch
[20:09:41] <alex_joni> then something like this:
[20:09:46] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> they should always be on
[20:09:57] <alex_joni> newsig bit high
[20:10:11] <alex_joni> linksp high axis.0.enable
[20:10:13] <alex_joni> sets high 1
[20:10:43] <cradek> http://timeguy.com/cradek-files/emc/max-jogwheel.tar.gz
[20:10:51] <cradek> here is my jogwheel/axis config for max
[20:10:53] <cradek> it's not in cvs
[20:10:58] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh!
[20:10:58] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok
[20:11:07] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> should I steal that one then?
[20:13:27] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> line 211 to 232?
[20:14:18] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> that code seems to be more for 1 jogwheel for all axes rather than dedicated wheels
[20:14:27] <alex_joni> indeed
[20:14:34] <alex_joni> but you get an idea how it works
[20:14:40] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> hmm, roughly
[20:15:00] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I'm not sure what to keep and what to remove/edit
[20:15:22] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: usually it works by running emc2, then opening another terminal and starting to add stuff
[20:15:33] <alex_joni> at the end you can issue: halcmd save > file.hal
[20:15:36] <alex_joni> and have all in there
[20:15:41] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[20:15:58] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> Hmm. this doesn't sound like something done in five minutes
[20:16:02] <alex_joni> so you can add the encoder module, then define the signals, connect them etc.
[20:16:10] <alex_joni> about 10 should be max :)
[20:16:26] <alex_joni> but it depends how acustomed you are with HAL
[20:16:29] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I'm not really sure where to start and how to do it
[20:16:40] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I can read the code but not write my own
[20:16:43] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> basically
[20:16:57] <alex_joni> ok, start with one jogwheel first
[20:18:45] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> it didn't like "newsig bit enc.X.A"
[20:19:06] <etla> that's a pin, not a signal
[20:19:25] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, signals don't like . in them?
[20:19:35] <etla> probably not
[20:19:44] <etla> do you have emc running ?
[20:21:12] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> it doesn't start with my .hal
[20:21:20] <etla> what ?
[20:21:22] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> it didn't like _ either
[20:21:39] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I made a hal with some commands for the jogwheel
[20:21:43] <etla> so you have done a scripts/realtime start
[20:21:52] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> or rather, the commands that alex_joni had in the pastebin
[20:21:54] <etla> then bin/halcmd -f yourfile.hal
[20:21:59] <etla> then bin/halcmd start
[20:22:02] <jepler> newsig yena bit
[20:22:05] <jepler> the type goes after the name
[20:22:09] <etla> then you should be able to see stuff with halmeter
[20:22:13] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: something to get you going:
[20:22:14] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, ok
[20:22:14] <alex_joni> http://pastebin.ca/71470
[20:24:04] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> HAL:13: Unknown signal type 'encA1'
[20:24:19] <alex_joni> change the order
[20:24:24] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> would that be what etla was talking about
[20:24:24] <alex_joni> newsig encA1 bit
[20:24:27] <etla> halcmd newsig encA1 bit
[20:24:41] <alex_joni> I wrote newsig bit encA1 (wrong)
[20:25:13] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> "HAL:45: Unknown signal type 'enablejog'"
[20:25:14] <alex_joni> http://pastebin.ca/71477
[20:25:35] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: I would expect you could fix the same error ..
[20:25:42] <alex_joni> when it appears the second time :)
[20:25:50] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yes, I fixed the order
[20:25:55] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[20:25:56] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok
[20:25:59] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ssh!
[20:26:01] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ;)
[20:26:27] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> hmm. what signal type is that?
[20:26:29] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> bit?
[20:26:34] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> and what's s32?
[20:26:34] <alex_joni> boolean
[20:26:38] <alex_joni> signed 32 bit
[20:26:40] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[20:26:45] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> so I append boolean?
[20:26:57] <alex_joni> no, bit means boolean
[20:27:00] <alex_joni> either 0 or 1
[20:27:04] <alex_joni> or true or false
[20:27:11] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[20:27:13] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok
[20:27:22] <alex_joni> I thought you were asking what bit means..
[20:27:27] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, nono
[20:27:55] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> "newsig jogwheel-pos1 s32" what should that line be?
[20:28:02] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> do I append bit to the end?
[20:28:02] <alex_joni> that's ok
[20:28:08] <alex_joni> no, that's of type s32
[20:28:12] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok
[20:28:13] <alex_joni> signed int 32 bit
[20:28:17] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> 32-bit signed?
[20:28:23] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> so +- a large number
[20:28:38] <alex_joni> indeed
[20:29:20] <alex_joni> +/- 2147483648
[20:29:31] <alex_joni> with a precision of 1-2
[20:29:33] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> hmm, axis loads but I don't get jogging
[20:29:35] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> with the wheel
[20:29:48] <alex_joni> are you in manual mode?
[20:29:53] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yes
[20:29:55] <alex_joni> is the machine switched on?
[20:29:57] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yes
[20:29:59] <alex_joni> can you jog using the GUI?
[20:30:04] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I can jog with arrow keys
[20:30:08] <alex_joni> ok..
[20:30:17] <alex_joni> pastebin.ca 'halcmd show'
[20:30:37] <alex_joni> that will be slightly large ;)
[20:30:55] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> HAHA!
[20:30:59] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yeah, slightly
[20:31:07] <alex_joni> halcmd show > file
[20:31:21] <alex_joni> gedit file, ctrl-a (select all), ctrl-c (copy) ;)
[20:31:40] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> right, which command outputs text to a file?
[20:31:45] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> it was too much for the terminal
[20:31:56] <alex_joni> I already told you that
[20:31:58] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> i need to do a halcmd show | <command>
[20:32:05] <alex_joni> halcmd show > file
[20:32:14] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[20:32:21] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> sorry, missed that line
[20:32:56] <alex_joni> np
[20:33:43] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> http://pastebin.ca/71487
[20:34:30] <alex_joni> shall I say it?
[20:34:40] <alex_joni> it 'should' work.. :D
[20:34:47] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> :D
[20:34:48] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> woo
[20:36:01] <alex_joni> oh.. found it ;)
[20:36:04] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> there's nothing connecting each signal to X or Z, that I can see
[20:36:04] <alex_joni> you need to add something:
[20:36:17] <alex_joni> newsig jogscale float
[20:36:17] <alex_joni> sets jogscale 0.001
[20:36:17] <alex_joni> setp encoder.0.x4-mode 0
[20:36:24] <alex_joni> linksp jogscale => axis.0.jog-scale
[20:36:30] <alex_joni> linksp jogscale => axis.2.jog-scale
[20:37:46] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> right.
[20:37:51] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> at the end?
[20:37:56] <alex_joni> anywhere ;)
[20:39:09] <alex_joni> and btw, in your pastebin (71487) lines 291-296 are the ones that connect the jogwheels to the X and Z axes
[20:41:12] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh, ok
[20:41:18] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> uh, how do I set scale?
[20:41:29] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> so one step on jogwheel is X units?
[20:41:29] <alex_joni> read a few lines ago
[20:41:37] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> the 0.001?
[20:41:48] <alex_joni> that's how many X units it goes for one encoder unit
[20:42:07] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> what about #make this your counts/unit
[20:42:08] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> setp encoder.0.position-scale 10
[20:42:12] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> what does that do then?
[20:43:10] <alex_joni> this converts from hardware jogwheel ticks to encoder position
[20:43:22] <alex_joni> you basicly have 2 levels of scaling
[20:43:46] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[20:43:54] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> so I should set one of them to 1?
[20:45:08] <alex_joni> if you want..
[20:45:25] <alex_joni> it depends how your jogwheel is made/engraved
[20:45:35] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[20:45:40] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I have 24 steps/rev
[20:45:54] <alex_joni> ok, how far do you want to go on one rev?
[20:45:56] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> more than that I don't know what I can say
[20:46:02] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> I want one step to be 0.1mm
[20:46:16] <alex_joni> you're running with mm as units?
[20:46:20] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yes
[20:46:29] <alex_joni> ok.. then simply have encoder-scale 1
[20:46:39] <alex_joni> and jogscale 0.1
[20:47:04] <alex_joni> I think ;)
[20:48:42] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok
[20:48:44] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> seems to work
[20:48:45] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> however
[20:48:50] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> they dont behave the same
[20:49:03] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> one does maybe 7-9 steps/rev
[20:49:08] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> the other twice as many
[20:49:15] <A-L-P-H-A> jepler, are you the hoster?
[20:49:24] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: another 'halcmd show' ?
[20:49:25] <alex_joni> :D
[20:49:38] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> this is software because switching the input pins switches the symptoms
[20:49:39] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu... yeah yeah... hydraulic only.
[20:49:46] <anonimasu> what?
[20:49:54] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, msg you back, from way up.
[20:50:01] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: what input pins?
[20:50:11] <A-L-P-H-A> [16:00:30] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: the whole idea of running the spundle with hydraulics
[20:50:18] <A-L-P-H-A> 2hrs ago
[20:50:20] <anonimasu> ah is it insane ;)
[20:50:44] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, it's cool! but I know nothing about hydraulics... I would so like to learn more.
[20:51:19] <anonimasu> :9
[20:51:20] <A-L-P-H-A> if the motor is capable of handling that much volume/Minute... that's awesome.
[20:51:30] <anonimasu> huydralics are pretty simple
[20:51:37] <A-L-P-H-A> sec... washroom
[20:51:39] <anonimasu> k
[20:51:40] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> alex_joni: if I switch which parport pins go to which axis then it's always a certain axis that is erratic
[20:51:50] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> s/erratic/bad
[20:52:00] <alex_joni> oh, this sounds like some encoder counter is misconfigured
[20:52:04] <alex_joni> one of the scales
[20:52:09] <alex_joni> you did change both, did you?
[20:52:25] <alex_joni> oh, and another thing..
[20:52:29] <alex_joni> I told you to add:
[20:52:32] <alex_joni> setp encoder.0.x4-mode 0
[20:52:44] <alex_joni> either remove that, or add one for the other encoder aswell
[20:52:49] <alex_joni> setp encoder.1.x4-mode 0
[20:53:21] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> http://pastebin.ca/71509
[20:53:25] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[20:53:31] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yes
[20:53:36] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> i changed both
[20:53:43] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[20:53:44] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok
[20:53:51] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, k... my Qs are like... where are you going to run the pump? Does pressure get lost over distance?
[20:53:54] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> what does that line do?
[20:54:10] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: no as oil does not compress
[20:54:11] <alex_joni> it deactivates the x4 mode
[20:54:19] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> which is?
[20:54:24] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, oh. cool, so it's like water!
[20:54:29] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: basicly an encoder can be counted as 4 ticks when you move it one line
[20:54:33] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> oh
[20:54:34] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok
[20:54:39] <alex_joni> because you have 2 signals A & B which change states
[20:54:45] <alex_joni> so you can count 4 states
[20:55:06] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: Yeah that's right
[20:55:06] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> what gives the highest resolution?
[20:55:09] <jepler> A-L-P-H-A: I host cvs.linuxcnc.org
[20:55:33] <A-L-P-H-A> jepler, do you have java on that machine? :)
[20:55:35] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: other then that it's pretty simple pressure in stuff moves
[20:55:39] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: resolution is the same one
[20:55:43] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> ok
[20:55:46] <alex_joni> you'll only get 4 times more counts
[20:56:03] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, cool... i would really like to see the whitepapers/spects/product info on the stuff you're getting/got.
[20:56:13] <anonimasu> hm, I dont have any :)
[20:56:17] <anonimasu> but I can give you the specs
[20:56:25] <jepler> A-L-P-H-A: it's just an old laptop
[20:56:27] <jepler> A-L-P-H-A: nothing special
[20:56:35] <jepler> A-L-P-H-A: 300MHz, 128 megs ram, 4 gigs disk
[20:56:40] <A-L-P-H-A> jepler, just want it to run drawboard. :) if it's up all the time.
[20:56:51] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: the motor is a 4.5 kw 1450 rpm
[20:56:54] <alex_joni> A-L-P-H-A: better on linuxcnc.org
[20:56:55] <jepler> it's not for running anything but the CVS server
[20:57:02] <alex_joni> on www. not on cvs.
[20:57:02] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: and the pump is a 11cc pump..
[20:57:08] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> alex_joni: seems to work
[20:57:12] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: cool
[20:57:16] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> alex_joni: I'll test more tomorrow
[20:57:20] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> g'night all
[20:57:21] <SWPadnos> I think we can't do JSP or whatever drawboard needs on DH
[20:57:22] <A-L-P-H-A> jepler,
[20:57:24] <alex_joni> Lerneaen_Hydra2: see.. not more than 5 minutes
[20:57:39] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> haha
[20:57:40] <Lerneaen_Hydra2> yeah
[20:57:42] <alex_joni> A-L-P-H-A: is there a flash version of it?
[20:57:46] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: to get flow you take cc*rpm
[20:57:49] <A-L-P-H-A> what's DH?
[20:57:54] <A-L-P-H-A> alex_joni, no.
[20:57:55] <alex_joni> A-L-P-H-A: dreamhost
[20:58:23] <SWPadnos> yes - DreamHost, the provider that www.linuxcnc.org is on
[20:58:41] <A-L-P-H-A> SWPadnos... then set me up with a shell account, and lets rock and roll!
[20:58:47] <SWPadnos> no
[20:58:50] <A-L-P-H-A> :(
[20:58:51] <alex_joni> lol
[20:58:53] <SWPadnos> heh
[20:58:55] <A-L-P-H-A> damn you!
[20:59:02] <alex_joni> A-L-P-H-A: behave
[20:59:07] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: in my case 11ccx1.45= l/min
[20:59:19] <SWPadnos> as I said, we discussed this before, and the server-side java support isn't there anyway
[20:59:21] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu... is 11cc the displacment?
[20:59:23] <anonimasu> yeah
[20:59:40] <anonimasu> of the pump
[20:59:51] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, okay... most of the things I read are... sec. let me find that.
[21:00:16] <anonimasu> then it's l/min / cc of motor
[21:00:22] <anonimasu> that gives you the rpm
[21:00:51] <SWPadnos> krpm?
[21:00:53] <anonimasu> yeah
[21:01:10] <alex_joni> http://web.okaygo.co.uk/apps/scratchpad/flashcom/index.htm
[21:01:13] <alex_joni> that's flash
[21:01:35] <SWPadnos> ah-ah, saviour of the universe ....
[21:02:03] <anonimasu> hm ends up as 4550rpm
[21:02:06] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, oh hell... let me know if this link works. http://www1.mscdirect.com/CGI/N2DRVSH that's insane prices!
[21:02:23] <A-L-P-H-A> alex_joni, yeah, but you gotta pay for that.
[21:02:54] <anonimasu> no, dosent work
[21:02:55] <A-L-P-H-A> alex_joni, and kids play on that and draw crap on them.
[21:03:18] <A-L-P-H-A> anonimasu, mscdirect.com and go to the hyraulics -> power units
[21:04:04] <anonimasu> part number?
[21:04:48] <A-L-P-H-A> see if this works. http://www1.mscdirect.com/CGI/NNSRAR?PMSECT=2001597
[21:05:04] <anonimasu> yeah
[21:05:20] <anonimasu> insane prices
[21:05:29] <A-L-P-H-A> yeah... those are really expensive!
[21:05:44] <anonimasu> parker does make good stuff..
[21:05:47] <anonimasu> expensive though :)
[21:06:32] <A-L-P-H-A> another part 09629007
[21:06:41] <A-L-P-H-A> seems tiny, and the rpm is tiny
[21:06:48] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: I'm taking all chances lately to learn hydraulics at work lately
[21:07:57] <alex_joni> * alex_joni goes to bed
[21:07:58] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: that's a large motor :)
[21:07:58] <alex_joni> night all
[21:08:05] <A-L-P-H-A> alex_joni, later
[21:08:58] <anonimasu> 7.62cc
[21:09:04] <anonimasu> if I calced it right
[21:09:39] <A-L-P-H-A> Anonimasu, okay... when given a pump, I'm given HP/maxPSI/maxGPM
[21:10:03] <anonimasu> yeah
[21:10:19] <A-L-P-H-A> looking at what I'm given for motors
[21:10:26] <anonimasu> kw and rpm
[21:10:44] <anonimasu> or at the huydralic mottors?
[21:10:45] <A-L-P-H-A> displacement, mas pressure, max speed, max torque.
[21:10:46] <anonimasu> motors..
[21:10:53] <anonimasu> yeah
[21:11:12] <anonimasu> with a spindle you will be working with pretty high pressure, but nothing extreme
[21:11:26] <anonimasu> about 150bar..
[21:11:52] <A-L-P-H-A> if I'm given a max speed / displacement = GPM.
[21:12:15] <A-L-P-H-A> 150 bar = 2175.56607 PSI!
[21:12:25] <anonimasu> yeah..
[21:12:33] <anonimasu> not too extre
[21:12:37] <anonimasu> extreme :)
[21:14:09] <A-L-P-H-A> okay... says the motor (not hte pump) MAX 12GPM... which is 45.42L/min. That's a lot of liquid.
[21:14:28] <anonimasu> that's a large motor
[21:15:04] <A-L-P-H-A> they don't have smaller ones on princessauto the canadian one.
[21:15:22] <anonimasu> you should call some local shop that does huydralics
[21:15:29] <A-L-P-H-A> okay.
[21:15:34] <anonimasu> 1 Liter/min = .264 Gallons/min
[21:15:37] <A-L-P-H-A> so what's 11cc?
[21:15:45] <A-L-P-H-A> 11cc in CI.
[21:16:09] <anonimasu> 1 cc = .000264 Gallon
[21:16:23] <A-L-P-H-A> that's a super tiny motoc... 0.67CI.
[21:16:27] <A-L-P-H-A> Cubic Inches.
[21:16:30] <anonimasu> yeah
[21:16:36] <A-L-P-H-A> 11cc = 0.67ci.
[21:16:42] <A-L-P-H-A> how tiny is this motor physically?
[21:16:45] <anonimasu> tiny
[21:16:49] <anonimasu> it's smaller then my servos :)
[21:16:58] <anonimasu> about the size of a computer mouse
[21:17:02] <A-L-P-H-A> WOWzers... and it can handle all this pressure.
[21:17:12] <anonimasu> yeah
[21:17:18] <A-L-P-H-A> what's the model number?
[21:17:22] <anonimasu> no idea
[21:18:24] <anonimasu> :)
[21:18:53] <anonimasu> though it gets a bit bigger with the external bearing
[21:19:47] <anonimasu> im done with the spindle now, I just need to mount the motor/gear assembly to it
[21:22:34] <A-L-P-H-A> now we're talking http://www.casappa.com/eng/02products/ingr_allum/ingr_allum.htm#whisper
[21:23:15] <anonimasu> zyeah

[23:08:31] <anonimasu> -> that hand
[23:08:40] <anonimasu> dunno if it's r/l
[23:09:10] <giacus> the brain is divided mainly in 2 sectors
[23:09:14] <giacus> left/right
[23:09:21] <A-L-P-H-A> it's not supposed to be possible.
[23:09:46] <giacus> I know some writing with left hand and using the right foot to play football ..
[23:09:55] <anonimasu> A-L-P-H-A: doing what?
[23:10:16] <A-L-P-H-A> the different hemispheres of the brain send conflicting signals, to the brain can't continue to send the motion signals.
