[00:45:07] <danimal_garage> you must be getting old
[00:45:08] <danimal_garage> lol
[00:45:25] <danimal_garage> i live in the desert and it has never been too hot for beer
[00:45:35] <JT-Shop> I must be LOL
[00:45:57] <JT-Shop> the desert is a dry heat not hot and moist where sweat just sits on your skin
[00:46:17] <danimal_garage> i grew up in CT with the humidity
[00:46:52] <danimal_garage> but 118f is pretty friggin hot, dry or not
[00:47:00] <JT-Shop> it can be brutal to an old fart with less than a whole heart muscle
[00:47:16] <JT-Shop> yea, 118f is too hot to hold on to

[00:47:45] <danimal_garage> i'm about to try to start my motorcycle for the first time since i cut it apart
[00:47:57] <JT-Shop> I was putting ice under my hat to keep my core temp at check
[00:48:04] <JT-Shop> get a video with sound
[00:48:35] <danimal_garage> i will, assuming it starts
[00:48:50] <danimal_garage> i made the wire harness, sooo......
[00:48:57] <danimal_garage> we'll see
[00:49:15] <danimal_garage> i think the exhaust is going to be too lout
[00:49:17] <danimal_garage> loud
[00:49:30] <JT-Shop> does it have electronic ignition?
[00:49:35] <danimal_garage> yes
[00:49:50] <danimal_garage> i kept most of the stock electronics
[00:49:55] <JT-Shop> no baffles inside of the chamber
[00:50:02] <danimal_garage> some baffles

[00:51:59] <danimal_garage> ha i thought about that
[00:52:10] <danimal_garage> did you see the exhaust?
[00:52:18] <JT-Shop> yes
[00:52:27] <JT-Shop> I like it!
[00:52:51] <danimal_garage> thanks!
[00:54:09] <danimal_garage> brb, gunna hook up some juice and try

[01:24:35] <danimal_garage> do the drives take step/dir, or analog?
[01:24:54] <Valen> PWM from the mesa 5i23

[01:28:03] <cradek> are your encoders differential?
[01:28:06] <danimal_garage> sure it's not a loose coupler or something?
[01:28:30] <Valen> no, TTL but its been running well for a while so i'm going to bust the scope out on it
[01:28:32] <danimal_garage> well i guess it cant be if it's a linear scale
[01:30:22] <cradek> just one axis, or all?
[01:30:35] <Valen> just 1

[06:50:34] <jimbo132> KimK I picked up some for my lathenew drives
[06:51:12] <KimK> Great! Something that will work for you?
[06:52:10] <jimbo132> advanced motion controls 30a8t 30 amp peak 80 volts

[06:53:04] <KimK> Sounds good, are those the brushless kind?
[06:53:55] <jimbo132> these are for brushed DC motors with tach inputs

[06:56:14] <jimbo132> again.
[06:56:38] <KimK> And that's what you have (brush), so you don't have to mess around with the drives? Even better. Do you mind if I ask what you had to pay? And do they come with a transformer?
[06:57:05] -!- psha[work] [psha[work]!~psha@] has joined #emc
[06:57:11] <KimK> Oh, and single-phase AC in, I'm guessing?
[06:57:22] <jimbo132> Theycost me $30.00 ea on ebay I bought 7.
[06:58:03] <KimK> Nice, got an item number handy?
[06:58:08] <jimbo132> Up to 80 volts DC . My power supply is 80 volts.
[06:58:23] <jimbo132> Bought the last 7.
[06:58:43] <jimbo132> 170632679165
[06:58:45] <KimK> Oh, the amps are DC in? OK.
[06:59:49] <jimbo132> I purchasedextras as They may work on my series 1 bridgeport.
[07:00:52] <jimbo132> The drives on my bridgeport sing. Sucks.
[07:01:24] <KimK> Well, good luck, we'll look forward to hearing all about it. And seeing pictures.
[07:01:59] <jimbo132> What would you do with theencoders?
[07:02:37] <KimK> Do you have some now?
[07:03:06] <jimbo132> Yes looks like 635 counts per rev.
[07:04:06] -!- mrsunshine_ [mrsunshine_!~mrsunshin@c-bc3de253.4551536--62697410.cust.bredbandsbolaget.se] has joined #emc
[07:04:07] <jimbo132> 625
[07:06:19] -!- mrsunshine__ has quit [Ping timeout: 252 seconds]
[07:07:31] <jimbo132> KimK: my motors are a 1:1 ratio. Should I change the X to a 2:1 ratio?
[07:08:23] <KimK> So 625 x 4 = 2,500 Counts/rev. Average might be 1,000 (4,000) or 1,024 (4,096). So they're a little lower (coarser) than average, but not bad. And they're probably already mounted? And you're probably approaching your budget limit? I'd probably use them and live with it.
[07:08:45] <KimK> This is a Bridgeport? So 0.200" per turn?
[07:09:31] <jimbo132> I am refering to the YAM lathe.
[07:09:49] <KimK> Oh, OK, what's the screw pitch?
[07:10:12] <KimK> Probably 5mm or 10mm?
[07:11:06] <jimbo132> Not sure I will have to test and find out. It is a Anilam lathemaster conversion on a YAM.
[07:12:04] <KimK> Let's guess 5mm, you said it was only 2,500 lbs. So 5mm / 2500 = .002mm per count. Not terrible.
[07:12:50] <jimbo132> So leave well enough alone is good...
[07:13:10] <KimK> Are you planning on doing any +/- .001mm work? It wouldn't work in that case, even if the machine is tight.
[07:14:00] <jimbo132> Most tolerances will be around .001 in
[07:14:29] <KimK> If you find that your encoders aren't differential, you can use those "cable lump" drivers they sell for the CUI encoders, those are handy.

[07:20:44] <KimK> .002 / 25.4 = .0787401 per count (a bit less than a "tenth", 0.100 would be a "tenth" (one-ten-thousandth) Your encoders will increment on non-integer numbers in inch mode, is that OK? (It doesn't matter to the cutting.)
[07:24:06] <KimK> Well, if you were starting from scratch, no encoders, I might say USDigital E6D, 2500 line 10,000 count. (Assuming you have hardware to count with, no PP for these.) 5mm / 10,000 = .0005mm. Or .0005 / 25.4 = .019685039 per count, about 20% of a "tenth".
[07:26:10] <jimbo132> As long as SAE threading is not a problem. no big deal. I think the Mesa analog board is able mcount that.
[07:26:45] <anonimasu> sae threading?
[07:27:33] <jimbo132> standard american enginering
[07:27:42] <anonimasu> yeah but what problems with that?

[07:58:02] <anonimasu> the mesa board should count up to 2mhz...
[07:58:05] <anonimasu> brw..
[08:01:35] <KimK> Ha, clear lacquer, paint thinner, from what I understand, all the stuff they can't use anymore. They make them use some water-based stuff to avoid VOCs, only they're highly toxic, so they tell me? Moon suits and special breathers. A guy I know got out of the car body business because he didn't want to be around it anymore. Is it true? I don't know.

[08:19:18] <mazafaka_> pit?
[08:19:36] <mrsunshine> hole in the ground so i can go under the car =)
[08:19:40] <mazafaka_> I am working in my garage, there are not many instruments available, a friend of mine makes some details on lathe. I have recently bought small angle grinder (of some well-known brand, hope it will be quite durable for its price) to clean metal from rust and paint more quickly, but some space around corners will yet be cleaned with my mini-drill with a self-made tool which holds short stripes of sandpaper (small bolt which screwed part is cut lengthwi

[08:24:42] <mhaberler> KimK: psha and me would like to add gladevcp as a proper chapter under User Interfaces, and polish it up
[08:25:23] <mhaberler> I just pulled v2.5_branch and have issues with building it (eg the spanish pdfs)
[08:25:30] <mhaberler> does this build for you right now?
[08:26:15] <KimK> mhaberler: Sure, anything is fine, that would be great. Please also add anything that you add to the same place in the matching _de, _es, and _fr files.
[08:26:22] -!- factor [factor!~factor@] has joined #emc
[08:26:33] <mhaberler> my question really goes to the build
[08:27:45] <mhaberler> starting from a clean pull, eg I get rm: cannot remove `../docs/src/Master_User_es.pdf': No such file or directory
[08:28:52] <KimK> It builds the pdfs, maybe excepting for the man pdf, I forgot. But there are issues with the html part. At the top of the Submakefile in docs, there are several (what was it?) checkref (all four) checkref_en, checkref_de, checkref_es, checkref_fr. The checkref_fr seemed to work, but I thought that it might still be relying on old LyX files, I don;t know.
[08:29:12] <KimK> Are you on v2.5_branch?
[08:29:18] <mhaberler> I see - I might need to touch <foo>_es.txt
[08:29:21] <mhaberler> yes
[08:29:56] <KimK> All the "new" files should be there, I did add them. Let me know if not.
[08:30:56] <KimK> They're there, but in (mostly) english. Except for the French one, that's mostly French with a smattering of English.
[08:32:05] <nicko> hello all
[08:32:22] <KimK> There's supposed to be 18 pdfs now. There might be only 17 if the man pdf is missing, I was still working on that and a few other things, but now something has come up, and thought I'd better push it now.
[08:32:31] <nicko> anyone here ok to talk about open collector outputs and confusion I have ?
[08:32:50] <KimK> Sure nicko, how are you confused?
[08:33:38] <nicko> I dont know! so its a real confusion - I have a Mesa 5i22 here and I;m trying to interface it with a drive

[08:35:10] <KimK> s/French one/French ones/ There are four each of "Getting Started", "HAL Manual", "User Manual", and "Integrator Manual", plus "Developer Manual" (English only) and "man pdf pages" or similar. So 4 + 4 + 4 + 4 +1 +1 = 18 if all there.
[08:35:33] <nicko> I need to send PWM and Dir signals to the differential inputs shown in the list and 'figure 8' diagram on page 14
[08:35:35] <mhaberler> KimK: could it be the docs/src/common/translator-needed*txt files are missing?
[08:35:56] <mhaberler> (not in index/commited/pushed?)
[08:36:05] <nicko> I need to send an enable signal to the type of input in figure 10
[08:36:42] <KimK> Only if I forgot to commit them, I could fix that real quick. Is that what I did? I was worried I'd botch it up somehow. Let me look.
[08:36:49] <nicko> I get lots of explanations and theory - but it all seems to either contradict other advice or what the manual is telling me
[08:37:06] <nicko> in any case ... it aint working here
[08:37:27] <mhaberler> happens to me all the time
[08:38:41] <mhaberler> that's why it is a good idea once in a while to do it in a test directory with a clean pull so you see what other people will se; local unstaged files create a wrong picture
[08:41:03] <mhaberler> nicko: you might get away just connecting them single-sided; is the 5i22 really open-collector? I though it can source as well

[08:43:37] <mazafaka_> oh, 15:43
[08:45:02] <nicko> mhaberler: it can source or be open collector - option available via hostmot commands
[08:45:08] <nicko> PCW says it needs to be
[08:45:22] <nicko> sourcing just aint working
[08:45:29] <nicko> but its all above my head as to why not
[08:45:44] <mhaberler> so what does the voltmeter say
[08:46:13] <nicko> voltmeter says +5v on the output pin of the 5i22
[08:46:15] <nicko> Yay!
[08:46:47] <KimK> mhaberler: I took another look, there were actually two pairs of files (four total) that I forgot. So thanks for finding my mistake!
[08:46:53] <nicko> but when I connect it to the input on the drive I get no 'enable' and I now see 0.6v difference between that pin and GND
[08:47:28] <nicko> this is the case of the 'figure10' input in that manual page I liked

[08:48:40] <mhaberler> forget the drive, set port to 1, connect a 220 ohms resistor to ground and measure
[08:49:07] <mhaberler> do you get enable if you connect to +5V straight?

[08:51:58] <nicko> drive needs 6.3mA to go logic high (from specs)
[08:52:46] <nicko> 5i22 'can supply 400mA' - **not sure if thats each pin, all pins, or just the +5v pin that each header block has**
[08:53:24] <nicko> the frustrating part is that because I am confused the nature of confusion in that I cant describe the problem properly
[08:53:31] <nicko> except to say 'it dont work'
[08:54:03] <mhaberler> must be the +5v pin, this aint your car stereo
[08:54:28] <nicko> righto
[08:54:31] <nicko> makes sense
[08:55:00] <KimK> Was that from a "make clean"? So that it can't delete that file unless it was built previously?
[08:55:41] <nicko> dang, I gotta go - its like I need PCW and the drive manufacturer to talk it over and supply me with a drawing of what to do

[09:01:29] <Valen> ouch
[09:04:15] <KimK> Well, as I said earlier, I have about risen to my level of incompetence on the Makefile and Submakefile business, I need some help to make any more progress. So I may have missed any number of important clues. I was delighted to discover the checkref_en, checkref_de, etc. I even tried to add the new ones (by rote, hoping I'd done it right). But I think it needs a better cmake troubleshooter than me.
[09:05:18] <KimK> Valen: Ouch indeed. Is it repairable? Either by you or by a trip back to the factory?
[09:05:40] <Valen> dunno, need the mill working, but i'll look into it
[09:08:06] <KimK> mhaberler: I also posted this earlier in devel, looking for help or advice. So far nothing. http://pastebin.com/XnstH7GA

[09:10:11] <psha[work]> it was referenced in HTML_TARGETS but now seems commented
[09:10:15] <mhaberler> man, this needs a cleanup
[09:12:29] <KimK> It has been not used for awhile, but the cross-refs have been gone awhile too. Could they come back? Plus, I was trying to get rid of everything I could that relied on the departing LyX. That's why I added the substitute txt for txt (obviously not needed), but I wanted to show I was replacing the ,lyx for .txt, or vice versa, whatever it was.

[09:13:47] <Valen> any idea what the warranty is like on easson scales?
[09:14:30] <psha[work]> KimK: for xrefs there are links.db files - simple 'ref: doc'
[09:14:33] <KimK> And the long filter strings too. And don't think I didn't consider changing the English file extensions to _en.txt, but I decided I'd better not.
[09:16:14] <KimK> psha[work]: Clearly you think you're talking to someone who knows cmake, lol.
[09:17:08] <KimK> Anyway, that's another reason I pushed, to get some proper help for it.
[09:17:20] <psha[work]> KimK: heh, so what you want? crossref table?

[09:28:17] <KimK> Oh, I took to running cmake with -d and redirected >1 2>&1 which resulted in about a 140K line file, but very detailed and helpful for debugging. Drives gedit nuts to load it though, takes it awhile.
[09:29:01] <mhaberler> the issue seems to be with Master_User_es.txt - if I replace it with Master_User.txt contents, build completes
[09:30:42] <Valen> their web page doesn't seem to exist really
[09:31:06] <Valen> at least not in english
[09:31:19] -!- mk0 has quit [Client Quit]
[09:31:54] <KimK> Ah, I'll bet I know. I found it to be an issue that internal cross references could not have any accented characters, it would crash the build. Maybe I forgot one? I took to following their lead and not allowing spaces either, I subbed dashes as they did. Maybe that was for HTML reasons? Anyway, I followed suit, no accented characters, no spaces in the internal links. Index triple parens seemed OK though.
[09:32:46] <mhaberler> could be it, trying same trick on Master_HAL

[09:34:06] <KimK> If the links "missed" or were "undefined" that was OK, because you would get the error in the "-d" report, it stopped normally, logging the error. But the accented characters made it choke.

[09:38:43] <KimK> Yes, I would sometimes have to do a "manual git bisect" when I got no feedback. I'd comment out the first half of the master file and run the second half, and vice versa, and narrow it down that way.
[09:39:19] <mhaberler> dont we all love the pinpoint capability of asciidoc error messages..
[09:39:48] <KimK> And I did a lot of grepping too, I'm still not a grep expert, but I'm a lot better at grepping now then when I started.

[15:40:04] <jdhNC> just those, they seem to have fallen out in shipping. I figured out where the rest of the parts went.
[15:40:20] <Connor> Check the head swivel
[15:40:46] <jdhNC> ok... I never did see how that worked.
[15:40:58] <JT-Shop> ssi: got a link to the aeroquip mandrels?
[15:41:08] <Connor> 2 Bolts, 1 in center, 1 below.. That looks to be the one below..

[15:41:28] <jdhNC> also, on the head, on the right side.. on the front, there is a hex set screw... on the back there is an empty hole (they are almost, but not quite, inline with the quill handle)
[15:41:32] <Connor> I just got through moding mine for a 3 bolt setup.
[15:41:46] <jdhNC> err... on the side, the front one is there, the back one seems to be missing?
[15:42:17] <Connor> the empty hole isn't empty.. Set screw in it that needs to be removed if you plan on pulling the head off.
[15:42:50] <jdhNC> have you removed yours? are you going to lap and/or replace the big strips?
[15:43:09] <Connor> I removed the head from the Z slide..
[15:43:15] <jdhNC> err... gib strips

[15:44:17] <Connor> I took the motor off before removing the head.
[15:44:18] <Connor> yea.
[15:44:38] <jdhNC> I ended up renting an engine hoist to put it on the base, and move it in to position
[15:44:56] <Connor> I took the arabor they supplied for the chuck, and mounted it in my vise.. Use V blocks if you have them.
[15:45:21] <Connor> Yea. I didn't have to rent one.. I borrowed a chain lift and used that unistrut.

[15:46:38] <jdhNC> the metal green gearcase cover?
[15:46:43] <Connor> yea.
[15:46:53] <mrsunshine> yeey, my new carbide scraper works niceley =) like 60cm shaft on it made it real nice to stand and scrape with it =)

[15:47:59] <Connor> You can use 1 of the 2 wires and plug it into where the 2nd wire goes and by-pass the chip guard switch.
[15:48:57] <Connor> I even removed the spindle control box.. I need to wire it back in.. but, it's not going to be on the machine, or, if it is. I'll mount it on the column instead of the head.
[15:49:49] -!- theos [theos!~theos@unaffiliated/theos] has joined #emc
[15:50:03] <jdhNC> do you have to remove the spindle cover to use collets?
[15:50:10] <Connor> yes.
[15:51:02] <mrsunshine> but i have a problem with the scraping, during spotting i now had nice spots all over the ways, but when i started fine scraping the spots at the end of the ways disapeard totaly directly ...
[15:51:19] <Connor> and, the manual, or design is fracked up.. you can't tighten up the draw bar using the small wrench and larger wrench on the cap (which is the cap to break the drawbar loose...
[15:51:27] <Connor> they're both the same threaded direction..
[15:51:39] <Connor> the bottom one needs a set screw or something..
[15:53:29] <Connor> and if you hear a rattle at low RPM, it can be coming from the drawbar if you didn't put in a collet, OR the retainer clip cup being slightly off center..
[15:53:41] <Connor> and, it only goes 1/2 speed in reverse.
[15:53:47] <jdhNC> so you just beat the plastic thing until it comes off?

[16:27:13] <Loetmichel> and today i needed some Brass sheet milled to be a EMI shield
[16:27:23] <Loetmichel> so i milled it ;-)
[16:29:18] <Connor> Okay, so, question.. Is it normal for a drill bit to become magnetized while drilling through metal? In this case, it was cast metal (iron?)
[16:30:47] <Connor> When I was drilling the holes for the 3 bolt mod in my 704, the bit or shavings would become magnetized.. I ended up having to use some rare earth magnets on a screw driver to remove the filings and clean out the hole I was working on.. (broke a 1/8" drill bit off ugg..)

[17:10:40] <Loetmichel> then: engine stops, no compression...
[17:10:57] <Connor> drill bit size is... 15/32
[17:11:02] <Loetmichel> dismantled it: 2cm big hole in the middle of the piston ;-)
[17:11:05] <danimal_garage> i have to not looking forward to jetting 4 carbs
[17:11:22] <danimal_garage> whoops.. -i have to
[17:11:56] <Connor> start small, step up to you get to 15/32. of course.. you'll have to undo the two bolts holding the Nut to the slide, then use a coat hanger to fish those other two bolts into the slide.

[17:12:49] <Connor> re bolt the slide to nut, raise the slide all the way to top and loosen the bolts and let it "float" for a few seconds, and then tighten up.. (so it won't bind up.)
[17:13:32] <jdhNC> did you do anything with the bolts at the base?
[17:14:19] <Connor> no. I pulled the other bolt and compared them.. they're the same.. I think Hoss's machine was older and not quite the same.
[17:14:32] <Connor> or the bolts he had weren't the same.
[17:16:11] <Connor> why no video? machine can't do it, or you at work ?
[17:20:12] <anonimasu> anyone has a clue on insert life in 400bhn material?

[17:22:37] -!- acemi has quit [Quit: WeeChat 0.3.2]
[17:22:50] <danimal_garage> make sure you cut under the crust from the flame cut
[17:23:09] <danimal_garage> that is likely what's killing the insert
[17:23:23] <IchGuckLive> 50min on 1.2316 at 2.5mm with 80mm width and 1500mm/min at 60m/min is pretty good !!!
[17:24:10] <anonimasu> 20mm cutter 2 inserts
[17:24:20] <anonimasu> about 0.06 per tooth
[17:24:38] <IchGuckLive> no calculate only 0.02 for 1 teeth
[17:24:39] <danimal_garage> mill or lathe?
[17:24:52] <anonimasu> mill
[17:24:56] <danimal_garage> oh
[17:25:33] <mazafaka_> Finally, a success, I have edited the parameters of cutters for the Lathe, used three cutters and made the shaft for the carriage of the bicycle. The video is about to be recorded right now.
[17:25:43] <IchGuckLive> 0.06 is way to match U=1500?
[17:25:47] <JT-Shop> anonimasu: dry or wet?
[17:25:51] <anonimasu> flood coolant
[17:26:02] <danimal_garage> try dry
[17:26:20] <JT-Shop> could be fracturing your inserts, all I have say dry on steel
[17:26:30] <JT-Shop> or air blast
[17:26:32] <danimal_garage> are the inserts burning up or are they chipping?
[17:26:42] <anonimasu> they are wearing out
[17:27:00] <danimal_garage> if the tips are wearing and blackish, your burning them up. if they're just chipping, it's a different story
[17:27:02] <anonimasu> edge is getting dull until I see sparking

[17:34:55] <anonimasu> tomorrow, seco tech support I guess will help with that
[17:38:01] <IchGuckLive> anonimasu: http://www.secotools.com/en/Global/Services--Support/Machining-Navigator/+
[17:38:33] <anonimasu> that's the data I were using
[17:38:49] <anonimasu> it usually works out very well, with nice tool life in normal materials
[17:38:55] <anonimasu> but this is harder then the usual stuff
[17:39:24] <IchGuckLive> as it sais 0.01 to 0.06 you got the max but if you go with 0.02 it will not fail on your mat
[17:43:40] <IchGuckLive> anonimasu: tol life is messured to 140ft 40m
[17:44:03] <IchGuckLive> at 100mm witdt
[17:44:10] <anonimasu> but my cutter is 20mm
[17:44:36] <IchGuckLive> same insert only less inseerrts
[17:44:49] <anonimasu> so, it should live like 1/6th of that
[17:44:53] <anonimasu> with less inserts
[17:44:58] <IchGuckLive> you got 2 this got 7
[17:45:24] <anonimasu> so my tool life should be about 8 meters
[17:46:10] <anonimasu> and at a feed of 400mm/mim that means 19-20 minutes
[17:46:10] <IchGuckLive> with 8um rabish on the insert
[17:46:33] <anonimasu> I guess that they are simply wearing out, and I should get a different grade for hard stuff
[17:46:51] <IchGuckLive> B)
[17:47:10] <anonimasu> IchGuckLive: since my life is pretty much exactly that calculated
[17:47:37] <anonimasu> gack, if i only had a toolchanger so I could load up 4 identical tools :p
[17:47:40] <IchGuckLive> <- Good Calculation :D O.O
[17:48:07] <anonimasu> so my insert life is pretty much spot on with the seco one
[17:48:17] <anonimasu> a tiny bit more when being conservative
[17:48:22] <IchGuckLive> you got it

[18:30:33] <danimal_garage> so the issue with my computer shutting off after a while was likely something with the onboard video

[18:31:24] <JT-Shop> cool
[18:31:54] <danimal_garage> it got better after i swapped the ram, but i figured the extra ram was just helping the onboard video out a little since it was shared memory i think

[18:54:19] <willburrrr2003> I load the tool, call tool change to that tool and then touch it off on unused co-ordinate system
[18:54:46] <willburrrr2003> or you can manually edit the tool table information for that tool...
[18:56:02] <skunkworks> danimal_garage: the axis issue I was having looks like it was a amp. mesa was sending out 10v and the amp was doing nothing. sometimes
[18:57:15] <danimal_garage> hmm that sucks
[18:57:58] <danimal_garage> easy fix, or do you have to replace it?
[18:58:21] <danimal_garage> how did you figure it out, crank up the ferror so you could see it?
[18:58:40] <skunkworks> we had a few extra
[18:58:43] <skunkworks> yes
[18:59:15] <skunkworks> the y axis would just drop as the amp did nothing - yet emc was output a full 10v saying - go the oposite way!
[18:59:30] <danimal_garage> are you still using those giant hydraulic servos?
[18:59:54] <danimal_garage> youch
[19:00:09] <skunkworks> no - we replaced them with kilamorgan servos - 80's vintage. so far so good.

[19:02:49] <skunkworks> even older :)
[19:03:27] <danimal_garage> ah
[19:03:33] <skunkworks> they where scavenged off of a nc that was getting scrapped locally. guy told dad to come and take what he wanted. so we took the servos and ball scress

[19:05:36] <skunkworks> they are a good match to the hydraulic ones.. peak they are 40ft-lbs with these amps

[19:05:50] theorb is now known as theorbtwo
[19:05:57] <skunkworks> so that is around 80ft-lbs at the ball screw
[19:06:04] <danimal_garage> wow

[19:06:40] <skunkworks> it forms things easy.. not usually on purpose.

[22:20:13] <skunkworks> sucks he took the videos down of the hexapod
[22:21:20] <skunkworks> (that is what is doing the probing.)
[22:21:28] <PCW> Yes the transfer error indicates the last transfer failed (sure, you will get nothing but transfer errors if you pull the plug)
[22:22:48] <andypugh> So, should I send a doit, or skip a doit?
[22:23:40] <PCW> send, transfer failed means that last transfer failed could be minor like a CRC error
[22:24:01] <tom3p> skunkworks haha he used body piecing parts for touch probe ( does it say ouch when it probes ")
[22:24:27] <andypugh> OK. I did have the feeling that not sending a DoIt would mean there was no chance of the error clearing.
[22:25:07] <skunkworks> heh

[22:57:04] <mikeggg> any thoughts on cutting ~4 extra feet of motor lead off before I make a mistake?
[22:57:29] <andypugh> There are #5NNN codes for current XYX etc
[22:57:51] <andypugh> mikegg: I wouldn't until you were very sure it all worked.
[22:58:10] <andypugh> If it is a servo motor lead that is about $100 worth...
[22:59:15] <mikeggg> oh yeah, it's heavy duty 3 conductor with a ground and a shield
[22:59:50] <mikeggg> I dunno, I think I have a pretty static configuration
[23:00:08] <mikeggg> I have an old computer case on the side of my mill that holds all the electronics
[23:00:37] <tom3p> whats the bad thing about not cutting it ?
[23:00:42] <mikeggg> the only case I could picture regretting it is if I ever wanted to swap it out and out it on a different machine
[23:01:24] <mikeggg> good question.
[23:02:23] <mikeggg> if you loop it all together, it basically becomes an inductor, no?
[23:03:04] <andypugh> I it is only this stuff I wouldn't worry: http://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Main_Index/Cable_Index/Multi-Flex/index.html
[23:03:38] <andypugh> Yes, but looping it into an inductor might damp the chopper spikes, and make for less RF noise.
[23:03:46] <tom3p> dont loop, loops cause mini-transformers that induce voltages to nearby wires.. use rats nest ( read allaboutit Peas of NatSemi sez 'rats nest!" )
[23:04:18] <tom3p> http://www.national.com/rap/
[23:04:36] <mikeggg> what If I can make a loop away from other wires?
[23:05:17] <Tom_itx> even with shielded wire?
[23:06:15] <tom3p> look at this experts analog wiring on his book cover http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51yRYDyg3hL._BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU01_.jpg
[23:07:31] <Tom_itx> i'd say that was intentional, ya think?
[23:07:54] <tom3p> he really maes a point of it, he has a prototyping method called 'hairball'
[23:08:03] <mikeggg> hah
[23:08:06] -!- robh__ has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[23:08:09] <tom3p> but keep high voltages away from low voltage

[23:09:00] <tom3p> he designs opamps for a living for nat semi ( well just recently laid off )

[23:16:05] <PCW> Ive been pretty mum about the 5I25
[23:17:35] <mikeggg> heh, it's a trap!
[23:17:40] <PCW> Dont want to pull an Osborne

[23:18:31] <PCW> Well you cant buy it yet
[23:18:39] <JT-Shop> Tom_itx: neat
[23:18:51] <Tom_itx> needs a bit of work still
[23:19:39] <PCW> did you solder wires to the balls?
[23:19:41] <JT-Shop> yea, I don't see the 7i76 or 7i77 yet... but I'm good at waiting
[23:19:47] <Tom_itx> PCW, not yet
[23:20:04] <PCW> That seems like the ugly part
[23:20:13] <Tom_itx> meh
[23:20:21] <JT-Shop> do you need some kind of driver circuit for the balls/rods part?
[23:20:30] <Tom_itx> it's a switch
[23:20:35] <Tom_itx> you could debounce it i suppose
[23:20:52] <JT-Shop> just wondering if more voltage would be better or not
[23:21:26] <andypugh> Instead of soldering wires, could you jam wires into the holes with the balls?
[23:21:27] <PCW> I dont think you want debounce, first open edge is a hit
[23:21:45] <Tom_itx> andypugh, i doubt that would be a solid connection for long
[23:21:53] <andypugh> And I would imagine that you want the smallest possible voltage for the smallest possible break-gap
[23:22:06] <PCW> how about spot weld thin SS wire
[23:22:08] <JT-Shop> that's why I'm asking
[23:22:14] <andypugh> Tom_itx: Best would be spot-weld.
[23:22:17] <Tom_itx> if i really wanted to, i could take them down to my battery shop and let him spot weld some wires on em
[23:22:35] <andypugh> I think that is three votes for spot weld :-)
[23:22:36] <JT-Shop> TIG weld the wires on...
[23:22:50] <PCW> Yea those thin nickle tabs

[23:23:05] <JT-Shop> like for ni-cads?
[23:23:10] <Tom_itx> yes
[23:24:04] <andypugh> We used to spot-weld very thin stainless wires to fracture specimens to measure crack growth. I reckon you could do it with a 12V supply set to miniscule current and a capacitor.
[23:24:14] <Tom_itx> or make your own with your car battery
[23:25:00] <andypugh> Tom_itx: You want a carefully controlled amount of energy. Say a 1000uF @ 6V.

[23:36:48] <danimal_garage> it's not horribly loud, i can deal
[23:37:07] <danimal_garage> that's in the garage right next to the closed garage door. outside it'll probably sound half as loud
[23:37:10] <JT-Shop> not bad, better when your outdoors and you don't get the reverb from the walls
[23:37:15] <danimal_garage> yea
[23:38:18] <danimal_garage> i don't even have the springs to pull the header tubes to the exhaust pipes yet, it's all just slipped togehter
[23:38:31] <danimal_garage> doesn't really leak though, which is good
[23:38:51] <danimal_garage> once i get the springs, it won't leak at all

[23:39:30] <Tom_itx> smartcam freeform
[23:39:54] <JT-Shop> OneCNC
[23:40:03] <andypugh> I don't know what (if anything) to do about the headers on my R1. The downpipes are titanium, with a flange on both ends. The keeper plates were once mild steel, but are now iron oxide. I might have to come up with some clever, interlocking, stainless, retro-fittable flanges.
[23:40:04] <JT-Shop> and Solidworks
[23:40:08] <danimal_garage> how do you like that JT-Shop?
[23:40:16] <JT-Shop> Solidworks?
[23:40:24] <danimal_garage> no, onecnc
[23:40:28] <danimal_garage> i have solidworks
[23:40:43] <JT-Shop> it's ok, not as good as they claim on the UI part
[23:40:54] <Tom_itx> none are
[23:41:04] <danimal_garage> andypugh: can you weld ti?
[23:41:11] <JT-Shop> You can get the job done but it is click, click, click, click...
[23:41:28] <danimal_garage> ah
[23:41:36] <andypugh> l0st1nsp4c3: AutoDesk Inventor. However I also have Alibre, and it is about 75% of Inventor for 5% of the price, so would be my recommendation if you don't mind working in Windows.
[23:42:12] <JT-Shop> andypugh: can you fit like a tire ring type thing inside of some new flanges?
[23:42:22] <JT-Shop> if you have a clue what I'm talking about
[23:42:23] <l0st1nsp4c3> kewl
[23:42:34] <andypugh> danimal_garage: I have tried in the past. It tends to crack on the back (you need a second shielding gas supply). I have spot welded it successfully, and that might be an option. (I have a proper old industrial Spot welder)
[23:42:47] <l0st1nsp4c3> tried heekscnc....and not to sure that's for me...cambam seems ok
[23:43:32] <l0st1nsp4c3> but still
[23:43:36] <andypugh> Alibre is a proper 3D associative[parametric mechanical design package.
[23:43:58] <andypugh> Heeks might be, when it is finished and I am very much supportive of the project.
[23:44:25] <l0st1nsp4c3> i can see it has potential but it's very beta if not alpha
[23:44:28] <danimal_garage> it's got a pretty low exhaust note for a 650
[23:44:34] <l0st1nsp4c3> andypugh: alibrecam?

[23:47:19] <mikeggg> it's not something I'm likely to splurge on again
[23:47:22] <JT-Shop> BobCRAP?
[23:47:32] <andypugh> Possibly. I recall somebody saying "I have BobCAD" and the reply being "Oh, I am so sorry"
