[16:10:27] <jrshaul> I have an old-school machining problem. I have a few feet of an oval-shaped pipe roughly 3" tall and 6" wide, and I'd like to cut several 6" sections of it. Is there an appropriate tool for this?
[16:11:20] <skunkworks> tough room ;)
[16:11:50] <skunkworks> I wonder how they are doing the tool changes
[16:12:07] <archivist> cutting disk as its low pressure
[16:12:13] <JT-Shop> jrshaul: chop saw?
[16:12:21] <JT-Shop> band saw
[16:12:28] <skunkworks> 2nd the band saw
[16:12:30] <archivist> less vice force too
[16:12:52] <jrshaul> I have access to a band saw, but I'm not sure it's up to it.
[16:12:53] <JT-Shop> you could put a block of wood inside to support it in the vise
[16:12:59] <jrshaul> Any particular sort of blade?
[16:13:08] <JT-Shop> what kind of material?
[16:13:11] <archivist> fine
[16:14:05] <archivist> and does accuracy of the cut matter much
[16:14:29] <jrshaul> It's aluminum, and it just has to look pretty.
[16:17:02] <archivist> best cuts on ally are overarm saw with carbide tips, was the tips before the cut
[16:17:11] <archivist> was/wax
[16:17:40] <archivist> I use to do a lot of ally cutting in my youth...
[16:18:14] <archivist> 20" blade 3k rpm...noisy
[16:26:08] <jrshaul> :O
[16:28:40] <archivist> ew dewalt stopped making them in 1989.. I was doing this in the early 1970's
[16:29:20] <jrshaul> Well, that ain't gonna help me much. :P
[16:30:28] <archivist> with a metal blade a table saw or cut-off saw could be used
[16:31:31] <jrshaul> I think it'd shear up 1/8" aluminum pretty good.
[16:32:14] <jrshaul> Honestly, I'm wondering if a hacksaw isn't he way to go - all I'd need is a really good miter box....
[16:32:22] <archivist> I was cutting 7x5 channel section for lorry tipper chassis parts

[19:44:06] <danimal_garage> one for the pc, mesa stuff, and servo drives, and one for all the high voltage stuff

[20:16:14] <JT-Shop> psha: this ain't my first building rodeo :)
[20:17:25] * skunkworks still has to screw in the relays in the lower left
[20:17:36] <skunkworks> they are just hung on 1 screw
[20:18:42] <archivist> I was contemplating mentioning the squareness/lack of on the lower left...but was far too polite :)
[20:18:51] <skunkworks> heh
[20:19:20] <archivist> and the two power resistors!
[20:19:34] <skunkworks> that was by design
[20:19:40] <skunkworks> so it fit on the angle iron that is holding them
[20:19:45] <archivist> I cant talk with my fugly control :)

[20:52:23] <mrsunshine_> some new stuff ordered, Z axis setter and some endmills and an edge finder, good stuff to have :P
[20:52:40] <mrsunshine_> and i still freakin dont have the mill running ... sigh, havent even used the last stuff i ordered :P
[20:53:17] <danimal_garage> haha
[20:53:20] <mrsunshine_> oh well now i have a real reason to get it together =)
[20:53:23] <danimal_garage> you sound like me
[20:53:31] <danimal_garage> who?
[20:53:41] <mrsunshine_> danimal_garage, well if it wasnt for "industry standard" it would be running
[20:53:47] <danimal_garage> did you order a cradek?
[20:54:02] <mrsunshine_> everything is freakin to hell ...
[20:54:11] <mrsunshine_> one would expect pulleys etc to be round ... but nooo :P

[20:54:46] <danimal_garage> lol... they have someone making $3 an hour making them
[20:55:48] <mrsunshine_> so now im gonna build myself a A axis when i get it running again (i can just change pulley back to the one i had that is lighter but still a bit off to make a crude but better pulley :P )
[20:56:30] <mrsunshine_> but it vibrates like heck so not very good :P
[20:58:07] <danimal_garage> yea, i make my own pullies
[20:58:18] <danimal_garage> way better than the crap i've bought
[20:58:34] <danimal_garage> at least they're concentric
[20:59:21] <danimal_garage> well i just welded the studs in my enclosure for my electrical plannel. Now to lay out the board.

[21:01:13] <danimal_garage> harbor freight has these imitation kennedy toolboxes on sale for $149 right now... i'm so tempted, but i dont think i can bring my self to buy a knockoff

[21:18:52] <garage_seb> there's something I'm missing with tlo & coord system offsets
[21:19:26] <garage_seb> i'm in axis, i've got a tool loaded, and at the bottom of the axis window it says "Tool 100, offset 0, diameter 0.125", just like i'd expect
[21:19:36] <garage_seb> tool 100, z tlo 0, perfect
[21:19:36] <mrsunshine_> ough just came to the realization ive spent about 3000$ on my mill and so far all it has done is build itself and some backplates for some audio stuff for a firend :P
[21:19:59] <garage_seb> i jog down and roll a .500 dowel pin between the work and the tool
[21:20:22] <garage_seb> i hit "Z" then "End" in axis, and the Touch-Off window pops up
[21:20:44] <garage_seb> I select "P1 G54" and enter a Z coordinate of 0.5
[21:20:54] -!- Guest833 has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[21:21:21] <garage_seb> when i hit enter, the dro in the Axis preview window shows Z = -2.5811, not 0.5 like i'd expect
[21:21:26] <garage_seb> what am i missing?
[21:21:48] <danimal_garage> go into mdi and type g54
[21:21:56] <garage_seb> i'm in g54
[21:22:13] <garage_seb> according to the Active G-Codes list in the F5 mdi tab
[21:22:16] <danimal_garage> try g43h100
[21:22:31] <garage_seb> ah
[21:23:06] <garage_seb> still no change
[21:23:08] <danimal_garage> the proper tool offset needs to be selected for the tool
[21:23:18] <danimal_garage> you may need to touch it off again
[21:23:44] <danimal_garage> you likely touched it off with the wrong tool offset
[21:25:54] <garage_seb> that worked, thanks
[21:25:59] <garage_seb> but i dont understand why
[21:26:33] <danimal_garage> because the machine thought it had a different tool loaded
[21:26:34] <garage_seb> i did t100 m6 g43, which moved to the tool-change position but did not request a tool change (since i already had t100 loaded)
[21:27:28] <danimal_garage> you can have a t100m6 g43h99 and it'll use the offset for t99
[21:27:52] <danimal_garage> you always have to type in g43h#
[21:28:00] <danimal_garage> before you touch off
[21:28:59] <danimal_garage> if you don't, it will use the tool offset for the last tool used
[21:29:19] <danimal_garage> and that'll screw it all up
[21:29:27] <garage_seb> g43 without an h uses the tlo of the currently loaded tool, right?
[21:29:48] <danimal_garage> not that i know of, but i always use g43h# no matter what
[21:29:56] <danimal_garage> better safe than sorry imo
[21:29:57] <garage_seb> ok, thanks :-)
[21:30:08] <danimal_garage> i never looked into it though
[21:30:27] <danimal_garage> no prob
[21:34:49] <garage_seb> yes indeed "T#<t> M6 G43" appears to use the z tlo from the tool that was loaded just before that block started executing, ie not tool #<t> but the tool before it
[21:35:02] <garage_seb> that's not what i expected
[21:35:09] <garage_seb> did that change between 2.4 and master?
[21:36:04] <danimal_garage> i dont know, i have 2.3.6 and it's been the same for at least 2 years
[21:36:32] <danimal_garage> i'm not sure what version i started with but it was 2 years ago
[21:40:17] <garage_seb> urgh, i'm an idiot
[21:40:32] <garage_seb> i'm calling someone else's subroutine, and it programs g49
[21:40:37] <garage_seb> wow that was confusing
[21:42:56] <danimal_garage> lol
[21:43:10] <danimal_garage> dont worry, i've done dumber stuff
[21:43:44] <Jymmm> aint that the truth ;)
[21:47:06] <danimal_garage> at least one of them wasnt living in the bay area
[21:50:01] <Jymmm> Yeah, because nobody wants to enjoy 70F weather
[21:50:36] <danimal_garage> it's warmer than that here
[21:51:00] <Jymmm> there ya go
[21:51:21] <danimal_garage> i like it about 80
[21:51:36] <danimal_garage> 70 is cold for me
[21:55:16] <Jymmm> It's still much nicer than these bastards that are snowed in!
[21:55:26] <danimal_garage> hahah hell yea
[21:55:50] <danimal_garage> which reminds me, i need to call my parents in Maine and rub it in
[21:55:56] <Jymmm> lol
[22:04:23] <danimal_garage> should i put in a line filter for the servo drives for the a/c power?
[22:04:56] <danimal_garage> the downside would be less room in the enclosure, making things closer together

[23:07:01] <Jymmm> PS especially

[23:07:35] <Jymmm> They're switching ps, so produce lots of noise
[23:07:37] <danimal_garage> i wonder how far i need it away from the feedback cables from my servo drives
[23:07:48] <Jymmm> shield it/them
[23:08:26] <danimal_garage> they cables are
[23:08:31] <danimal_garage> the*

[23:09:22] <Jymmm> are boht ends of the cable shields grounded?
[23:09:57] <danimal_garage> yes
[23:10:06] <danimal_garage> not much room for a cage
[23:10:12] <Jymmm> You should only ground ONE end, not both
[23:10:17] <danimal_garage> ah
[23:10:21] <danimal_garage> ok
[23:10:42] <danimal_garage> thanks
[23:10:47] <Jymmm> np
[23:11:00] <danimal_garage> i'm definitely not an electrical engineer or any sorts
[23:11:08] <Jymmm> me neither
[23:11:10] <danimal_garage> but i want to do this enclosure right
[23:11:53] <danimal_garage> the manual says separate the feedback wires from a/c lines by at least an inch
[23:12:08] <danimal_garage> i wonder if 3" would be enough for the power supply
[23:17:59] <danimal_garage> i wonder if the feedback cables make their own noise. like i wonder if i'd have issues if the encoder cables ran right next to the resolver cables
[23:20:15] <cpresser_> danimal_garage: most of this stuff could be caclulated in some way. but reality is always another thing than the values on the paper
[23:21:08] <cpresser_> some digital signals (for example spdif-audio) make more noise than the PSU itself
[23:21:39] <danimal_garage> hmm interesting
[23:22:12] <danimal_garage> do the ribbon cables between my 5i20 and daugther boards need to be somewhat isolated?
[23:22:32] <danimal_garage> i've never had problems with them running near ac lines, but figured i'd ask
[23:22:38] <cpresser_> basically, the amount of noise depends on: signal frequency (lower frequ, less noise); amperage, voltage (lower-> less noise)
[23:23:28] <danimal_garage> that would explain why i got more reedback issues when my spindle was running at 120hz than it did at 60hz
[23:23:35] <danimal_garage> feedback*
[23:23:42] <cpresser_> depends on the kind of signals they transport. if a signal itself has 'high power' (voltage, amperage) it is less prone for noise
[23:24:22] <danimal_garage> it's probably all 5v
[23:25:05] <danimal_garage> where's pcw_home when you need him!
[23:25:08] <cpresser_> worst-case: try wrapping the ribbon-cables in aluminium-foil :)
[23:25:39] <danimal_garage> haha
[23:25:41] <cpresser_> if the design itself is good (every second cable is 0V or 5V static), ribbon cables are less suspective to noise
[23:25:50] <danimal_garage> ah ok
[23:25:52] <cpresser_> thats the reason there were those ide80 cables
[23:27:19] <cpresser_> the aluminium-foil was no joke. that really helps
[23:27:39] <danimal_garage> i hope 2 inches is far enough away for my harddrive from my feedback cables
[23:27:56] <danimal_garage> i know, i still couldnt bring myself to do that though
[23:28:01] <cpresser_> thats 5centimeters. that sould suffice
[23:28:12] <danimal_garage> cool
[23:28:36] <danimal_garage> i got the power supply about 5-6" away at it's closest corner
[23:28:49] <cpresser_> the worse electomagnetic stuff goes with 1/r³
[23:29:05] <cpresser_> so double the disctance: get 1/8 of the noise
[23:29:27] <cpresser_> the PSU itself sould be shielded. that also helps
[23:29:29] <danimal_garage> ah cool
[23:29:59] <danimal_garage> i think i got the pannel figured out
[23:30:11] <danimal_garage> thanks for the info

[23:30:39] <danimal_garage> hopefully the mill runs again
[23:30:53] <cpresser_> what kind of mill is it?
[23:31:06] <danimal_garage> shizuoka AN-S
[23:31:36] <danimal_garage> it was already running on emc, but it had steppers. i just convered it to servos and i'm building a new enclosure for it
[23:31:58] <cpresser_> i am also thinking about switching to servos
[23:32:10] <danimal_garage> what kind of machine?
[23:32:15] <cpresser_> its a gantry
[23:32:24] <danimal_garage> cool
[23:32:24] <cpresser_> DIY-Design, ballscrews
[23:32:30] <danimal_garage> nice
[23:32:39] <danimal_garage> servos made a big difference
[23:32:51] <danimal_garage> mine's a big knee mill
[23:32:56] <cpresser_> in which aspect? (the servos)
[23:33:09] <danimal_garage> it had clunky old 1300 oz/in steppers, slower than snot
[23:33:30] <cpresser_> that would be in metic? :D
[23:33:41] <danimal_garage> it's MUCH faster and more accurate (provided there's no electrical noise)
[23:33:45] <cpresser_> oz = ?
[23:34:17] <danimal_garage> 9.2 nm i think?
[23:34:54] <cpresser_> ah, its torque :)
[23:35:29] <cpresser_> since the mill is that big, yes i can think of its speed
[23:36:08] <danimal_garage> it was 100in/min before in rapid
[23:36:27] <danimal_garage> it's now at 300ipm, and it's not fully tuned yet. i think i can get more out if it
[23:36:36] <JT-Shop> Sweet Dan
[23:36:39] <cpresser_> 300 is quite fast :) nice
[23:36:55] <danimal_garage> it's getting towards "fast enough"
[23:37:05] <JT-Shop> that has got to scare you a bit when you rapid down to within 0.100 of the work piece
[23:37:11] <danimal_garage> 400-500ipm would be nice
[23:37:28] <danimal_garage> haha yea, i'm getting used to it
[23:38:03] <danimal_garage> the best part of servos is no missed steps
[23:38:15] <danimal_garage> i had problems with that
[23:38:24] <cpresser_> yeah, that sucks
[23:38:41] <cpresser_> fortunately i dont have issues with misseing steps
[23:39:24] <cpresser_> so no real reason to get servos. i also got around 200in/min rapid. thats not the fastest, but it suffices
[23:39:44] <danimal_garage> yea, thats not too bad
[23:39:56] <danimal_garage> my acceleration was horrible with the steppers
