[00:00:03] <PCW> JT: 1.4 should be close to right (testing all I/O with andys driver and manual in hand found the last error I think)

[00:03:03] <andypugh> I don't get this at all.
[00:03:21] <andypugh> How can the md5s be the same when there is new content?
[00:03:45] -!- FinboySlick [FinboySlick!~shark@] has joined #emc
[00:04:49] <andypugh> OK, so the file creation time and the file contents disagree. What the heck?
[00:05:14] <FinboySlick> andypugh: DST change?
[00:05:27] <andypugh> No, it isn't that

[00:05:47] <FinboySlick> andypugh: crossed a wormhole?
[00:05:53] <PCW> all the files I got have a length of 26681 bytes and a md5 checksum of 87145008d20ba9f0d6e462113d18f196
[00:06:50] <FinboySlick> BTW, anyone here can teach me enough git to pull emc-dev from just before a dependency on libboost was added?

[00:10:27] <andypugh> FinboySlick: Try git checkout 3c5d11f3cedf5fd850c7d8bfc4c1c0eec9f89c94
[00:10:53] <andypugh> (This is a guess)
[00:11:36] <FinboySlick> andypugh: Well, that's probably all I needed.
[00:12:07] <FinboySlick> I find it a bit ironic that my glibc build is smaller than my uClibc build.
[00:12:47] <PCW> Well the good news is the file is different, the bad news is that it still doesn't apply ( same problem hostmot2.c line 84)
[00:12:49] <FinboySlick> Maybe it's that I had to spend less time patching code and could spend more trimming fat.

[00:25:04] <andypugh> PCW: The good news is that it just failed for me too.
[00:27:05] <PCW> some magic about how the patches are made?
[00:27:34] <andypugh> I am trying a rebase
[00:38:22] <PCW> OK 4th times a charm!
[00:41:12] <andypugh> I wish I could learn from other people's mistakes, not my own.
[00:41:32] <Tom_itx> then how would we learn?
[00:42:40] <andypugh> Can you confirm what the pins do? I have rather forgotten. ie, what the output of "angle" is, how many counts to a full rev, whether there is a wrap after 256 revs?
[00:43:06] <andypugh> For the time being, though, goodnight.

[01:11:09] <Valen> aww i want a surface grinder
[01:11:13] <Valen> make stuff shiny ;->

[01:14:35] <Valen> we were planning on making a CnC lathe
[01:14:47] <Valen> we figured vertical would be the way to do it ;->
[01:14:55] <Danimal_garage> making or retrofitting
[01:15:00] <Danimal_garage> a VTL would be cool
[01:15:02] <Valen> making
[01:15:09] <Valen> normal aspect ratio
[01:15:15] <Valen> ie long and skinny parts
[01:15:19] <Valen> but vertical
[01:15:28] <Danimal_garage> turn a drill press upside down
[01:15:43] <Danimal_garage> put linear rails on it
[01:15:44] <Valen> it'd be best however to have the chuck at the top in terms of not having crap fall into it
[01:15:45] <Danimal_garage> lol
[01:15:55] <Danimal_garage> ok just use a dripp press then
[01:15:57] <Valen> downside is mounting stuff isn't easy
[01:15:59] <Danimal_garage> drill*
[01:16:09] <Valen> we were thinking of going slightly above that ;-P

[01:27:02] <Danimal_garage> he wants 1k for it, it's a 6x18, manual feed, american made (he forgot the brand).
[01:42:22] <Danimal_garage> i think it's a boyar schultz

[02:21:44] <memleak> Hi FinboySlick
[02:21:58] <FinboySlick> memleak: Yo great savior.
[02:22:21] <memleak> Haha. What seems to be the issue?
[02:22:30] <memleak> :D
[02:22:39] <FinboySlick> Remind my pitiful brain of the magic combo. You said no 'optimize for size' and what else on the kernel side?
[02:22:59] <FinboySlick> This is on
[02:23:45] <memleak> Turn off the inline option.. i forgot the exact name
[02:23:49] -!- adb has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[02:23:53] <memleak> It's under kernel hacking near the bottom
[02:24:11] <memleak> Something to do with optimizing inlining.
[02:24:22] <FinboySlick> Allow gcc to uninline functions marked 'inline' ?
[02:24:26] <memleak> yes
[02:24:34] <FinboySlick> OK, that one is off, but I had -s
[02:24:43] <memleak> -s is strip right?
[02:24:43] <FinboySlick> I mean -Os
[02:24:51] <FinboySlick> Optimize for size.
[02:24:57] <memleak> oh -Os
[02:25:49] <memleak> -s is another flag that has no real impact on performance but strips certain things out of the binary, forgot exactly what... I had problems with -Os being used
[02:26:09] <FinboySlick> I hard-freeze as soon as I load an RTAI module.
[02:26:32] <FinboySlick> Which is a bit odd because at some point during my uClibc attempts they actually all loaded.
[02:26:42] <memleak> I had kernel panics.. hard-freezes... hmm.. any previous dmesg from when it crashed?
[02:27:22] <FinboySlick> No, cursor just stops blinking. I don't think it has time to prink anything.
[02:28:21] <memleak> does it happen when you modprobe or only when you run emc or latency-test?
[02:28:50] <FinboySlick> Well, the rtai modules are in /usr/realtime so I have to insmod, but yeah, it happens as soon as I insmod one of them.
[02:28:55] <FinboySlick> I haven't tried them all though.
[02:29:14] <memleak> hmm..
[02:29:29] <memleak> have you tried turning on core dumps and using gdb?
[02:30:26] <memleak> ulimit -c unlimited
[02:30:39] -!- emc_rules has quit [Ping timeout: 248 seconds]
[02:30:55] <FinboySlick> Hah, you greatly overestimate my skill level. I can try to do that mind you but my gdb skills are very very puny.
[02:31:07] <FinboySlick> my kung-fu is not as strong as your kung-fu.
[02:31:17] <memleak> you use gentoo though right?
[02:31:41] <FinboySlick> Yeah, which means there are legions of smarter people already with patches to most issues I've ever run into ;)
[02:32:10] <memleak> http://www.gentoo.org/proj/en/qa/backtraces.xml I'm not sure if gdb works on modules though
[02:32:41] <FinboySlick> I'll disable -Os first, see how far that gets me.
[02:34:35] <memleak> it is possible actually now that i look into it, as far as debugging modules using gdb. the fact it causes a lock-up upon loading makes it more difficult though..
[02:35:07] <FinboySlick> on rtai config, you just unable math and c99?
[02:35:51] <memleak> theres also kgdb as well. i know that RTAI is very picky about the kernel configs though so it might not be the module itself
[02:36:02] <memleak> yeah math fun support with C99
[02:36:27] <FinboySlick> OK.
[02:36:42] <memleak> can you post your entire kernel config?
[02:37:01] <memleak> i might be able to determine what the problem is based off of that
[02:37:03] <FinboySlick> memleak: Sure.
[02:37:12] <jdhNC> anyone have a small pc board layout I could have (in eagle)
[02:38:17] <FinboySlick> memleak: http://pastebin.com/DwrYgjyr
[02:39:39] <memleak> can you also do an lspci?
[02:40:33] <FinboySlick> memleak: That's a bit trickier, it's not built on the box yet so I'll have to port it. Cross-building is a bit of a bitch when it comes to that.
[02:40:43] <FinboySlick> memleak: It's a very plain Alix1D though.
[02:40:49] <FinboySlick> disabled sound and USB
[02:43:12] <memleak> alright 1 second im loading your config into my kernel source
[02:43:25] <memleak> patching rtai and all so i can see.
[02:45:19] <FinboySlick> memleak: rsync-ing my new kernel and lspci on the alix root, should have lspci for you in a couple minutes.
[02:57:51] <FinboySlick> memleak: http://pastebin.com/FWdrqrj8 <-- lspci -v

[03:00:15] <memleak> i'll post a new one in just a sec
[03:00:18] <FinboySlick> OK.
[03:00:23] <FinboySlick> Remember, this machine has no APIC.
[03:00:26] JT-Shop_ is now known as JT-Shop
[03:00:28] <memleak> if it doesn't work, replace the TINY_RCU with the regular TREE one
[03:00:30] <memleak> yes i know
[03:01:47] <FinboySlick> Ok.
[03:01:50] <FinboySlick> Anything else?
[03:04:30] <memleak> nope :)
[03:04:33] <memleak> posting new config
[03:04:45] <memleak> install lzop on your kernel building machine
[03:04:49] <FinboySlick> Building with the tree RCU
[03:04:56] <FinboySlick> lzop?
[03:05:00] -!- Quack has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[03:05:02] <memleak> LZO compression
[03:05:24] <memleak> bzip2 is the slowest and clunkiest out of them all
[03:05:40] <memleak> i changed that to LZO, and some lots of other varios things
[03:05:44] <memleak> *various
[03:05:58] <memleak> feel free to look it over
[03:06:13] <FinboySlick> heh, as long as it works!
[03:06:47] <memleak> just be sure to recompile and reinstall emc and rtai userspace (/usr/realtime stuff)
[03:07:11] <memleak> http://pastebin.com/svRXrzEt
[03:08:19] <memleak> install acct as well (6.5.5)
[03:08:35] <FinboySlick> acct?
[03:08:54] <memleak> sys-process/acct -> GNU system accounting utilities
[03:10:09] <memleak> i'm not sure if these are all required but i got that config as close as i could to machines i got it running on, but still retaining the settings for the specific board you have
[03:11:08] <FinboySlick> so long as you didn't touch the ide thing. It's very picky, never managed to get it to work with libata
[03:11:12] <memleak> LZO decreases decompression and compression, acct is for the v3 BSD accounting thing in the kernel, i also added in your I2C hardware and some various HID/USB tweaks
[03:11:27] <memleak> i changed the SCSI options but not the IDE controller
[03:12:00] <memleak> you had things on that wouldn't effect things, and i turned on the async option to increase speed. should be fine
[03:12:20] <memleak> also i turned on legacy /proc/ide just to be safe
[03:13:11] <FinboySlick> OK, building kernel, rtai and emc2 are next.

[03:19:41] <FinboySlick> Heh, so glad I,m not building all this on the alix.
[03:20:33] <FinboySlick> memleak: WARNING: "__fixunsdfdi" [/root/emc2-dev/src/hostmot2.ko] undefined!
[03:20:33] <FinboySlick> This a biggie?
[03:20:58] <memleak> i dont think so...
[03:21:56] <FinboySlick> synching to flash...
[03:22:27] <memleak> so you're cross compiling or how do you build it?
[03:23:05] <FinboySlick> since it's all x86, I chroot to the alix gentoo filesystem and build using a bigger CPU.
[03:23:14] <FinboySlick> But I use the alix' native compiler, etc.
[03:23:22] <memleak> oh you have it the easy way.
[03:23:43] <FinboySlick> memleak: gentoo is very very nice with cross-compiling.
[03:23:51] <memleak> i did ARM development on distros where i had to build the compilers and all from source myself
[03:24:02] <memleak> from x86_64 to arm cortex a8
[03:24:17] <FinboySlick> memleak: You'd love gentoo for that.
[03:24:19] <memleak> a mix of crosstool-ng, qemu, and chroot
[03:24:27] <FinboySlick> You can just plain use portage and specify the arch you want to crossbuild for.
[03:24:42] <memleak> yeah i need to learn to use emerge and all that
[03:24:43] <FinboySlick> CHOST=arm-whatever-whatever emerge sompackage
[03:24:49] <memleak> write ebuilds etc
[03:25:06] <FinboySlick> Most of them you won't need to write ;)
[03:25:27] <FinboySlick> you might have to write a patch here and there, but there's already ebuilds for anything.
[03:25:32] <memleak> im on fedora atm. yum this, yum that. no customization and optimization though
[03:26:00] <FinboySlick> Heh, you wait a lot less than I do when I emerge firefox
[03:26:21] <memleak> well at least its not openoffice eh? :D
[03:26:29] <FinboySlick> That one is terrible.
[03:26:45] <FinboySlick> they moved to libre though, open isn't maintained. Not that it's any faster to build.
[03:27:02] <FinboySlick> I hate updates to boost too.
[03:27:10] <memleak> is koffice doing well?
[03:27:11] <FinboySlick> Actually, gentoo pretty much made me hate boost.
[03:27:19] <FinboySlick> I don't do kde, hate QT.
[03:27:34] <memleak> what DE you use?
[03:28:00] <FinboySlick> gnome2 for now, I dread gnome3 from what I've seen so far, might go xfce when push comes to shove.

[03:29:27] <FinboySlick> You should see the gnome-mplayer saga when they forced gtk3 on it.
[03:29:54] <FinboySlick> everybody submitted gtk2-support patch (as in honoring the -gtk3 flag). They were all denied.
[03:30:42] <FinboySlick> at least the 'sane' ebuilds are in the bug report and people can just emerge those.

[03:31:30] <memleak> i'm surprised they didn't remove those posts
[03:31:56] <FinboySlick> Nah, gentoo democracy is prety healthy.
[03:31:58] <memleak> i'm sure their backed up elsewhere too though
[03:32:48] <FinboySlick> Thing is that it's so easy to just push your own patches and overlay your own build tree for specific packages, you're never really a victim of devs being stupid.
[03:33:34] <FinboySlick> you just make a /usr/local/portage/media-video/gnome-mplayer/gnome-mplayer-1.4.0.ebuild
[03:33:51] <memleak> i remember back when i tried gentoo, i found all the packages too old and i wanted to unmask all the packages marked "~" they tend to not answer questions that they don't approve of
[03:33:57] <FinboySlick> portage will always prefer your builds on equal versions.
[03:34:13] <FinboySlick> Oh I've always run ful systems as ~
[03:34:27] <FinboySlick> If you show that you're not an idiot when debugging issues, they help.
[03:35:09] <FinboySlick> So long as you make it clear that you run unstable and that you're aware that things are *supposed* to break from time to time, they'll assist. Also helps a lot when you submit patches.
[03:35:14] <memleak> they declared unstability and suicide when _I_ mentioned it.
[03:35:39] <FinboySlick> memleak: Just give me a poke, I'll protect you from the evil bonzaikitten.
[03:35:55] <memleak> That nick sounds very familiar actually!
[03:36:14] <FinboySlick> Hehe, sort of a channel bully, and package maintainer.
[03:36:28] <FinboySlick> Takes a while to tame the kitten, but pretty nice once you manage.
[03:36:44] <memleak> i know lots of those..
[03:37:02] <FinboySlick> Usually, that's my job.
[03:37:20] <memleak> you're a maintainer?
[03:37:30] <FinboySlick> But I wouldn't really try to be too obnoxious here. No, but I'm a very good bully.
[03:38:09] <memleak> I did some packaging for arch linux, the distro that is becoming worse than ubuntu by the looks of things..
[03:38:50] <memleak> oops.. sorry guys. forgot which channel i was in... i just don't like ubuntu because of the sneaky things they do.. didn't mean to start an argument... :/
[03:39:16] <FinboySlick> Hah, don't worry memleak, you now have a bully protector.
[03:39:39] <FinboySlick> Or something.
[03:40:57] <memleak> i really didn't mean to say that here.. all distros have their quirks at some point.
[03:42:11] <memleak> hows the kernel working?
[03:43:43] <FinboySlick> Somehow one of the changes made my entire card read-only.
[03:43:56] <FinboySlick> Modules loaded, but I freeze on unload, which might not be a big deal.
[03:44:15] <memleak> which card?
[03:44:22] <FinboySlick> I'm booting off a CF card.
[03:44:44] <memleak> so you cant mount the fs as rw?
[03:44:55] <FinboySlick> Apparently not.
[03:45:07] <memleak> but the modules load for rtai>
[03:45:13] <FinboySlick> yes
[03:45:22] <FinboySlick> Which is big progress if you ask me.
[03:45:37] <memleak> ok the read-only thing i can fix
[03:45:56] <memleak> i know which one that was.
[03:46:01] <FinboySlick> I probably can too. Just wondering how that happened.
[03:48:21] <memleak> did you need USB_DEVICEFS on?
[03:48:31] <FinboySlick> no, the CF card is IDE.
[03:49:38] <ve7it> jdhNC, did you get an eagle board.... I can post one for you
[03:50:25] <memleak> SCSI generic support shouldn't have effected that
[03:50:40] <memleak> async scsi scanning shouldn't have either but maybe one of those did
[03:50:59] <memleak> for your RCU did you use tree or tiny?
[03:51:05] <jdhNC> ve7it: I would like a small one (4x4cm) or so if you have one
[03:51:14] <jdhNC> or anything like that
[03:51:21] <ve7it> jdhNC, try http://members.shaw.ca/swstuff/kenwood.html its a 1 IC single sided board with a few few surface mount parts as well
[03:52:01] <jdhNC> that looks perfect, thanks!
[03:52:35] <ve7it> no problem... my site has a few other bigger boards as well if you need another example
[03:52:40] <jdhNC> did you use pcb-gcode for it?
[03:52:47] <ve7it> yes
[03:53:20] <jdhNC> does it have Z height probing bulit in?
[03:54:16] <FinboySlick> memleak: um... I loaded your config straight.
[03:54:22] <ve7it> no... a bigger double sided board that can also be built single sided if you dont mind putting a few wire jumpers on the top side http://members.shaw.ca/swstuff/dspic-servo.html
[03:54:27] <memleak> ah
[03:54:28] <FinboySlick> Didn't even check it, that's how much I trust you man.
[03:55:09] <jdhNC> single is good, I'm just playing with some code that probes the board area and adjusts the Z's to compensate for the board, or mounting

[03:56:16] <ve7it> cool.. I love being able to do proto boards, even if my spindle only does 3000rpm.... limits me to about 3or4 ipm with v cutter

[04:06:05] <memleak> FinboySlick, I guess turn on BLK_DEV CONFIG_USB_DEVICEFS BLK_DEV_SD CHR_DEV_SG and just turn off CONFIG_SCSI_SCAN_ASYNC and see if that fixes the CF ro problem.
[04:09:03] <FinboySlick> memleak: It says the device is 'write protected'.
[04:09:24] <FinboySlick> But it isn't write protected if I mount it on another system.
[04:09:32] <memleak> yeah its the kernel config.
[04:09:53] <memleak> sorry about that. that's what happens when you take a bunch of guesses
[04:11:21] <memleak> tried to improve performance. i'm a speed demon..
[04:11:24] <FinboySlick> I think it's just BLK_DEV

[16:32:14] <Danimal_garage> he's supposed to get some pics for me
[16:32:33] <Danimal_garage> email me @ sales@homebrewedcomponents.com and i'll forward them to you

[16:34:49] <JT-Shop> will he ship it?

[16:50:24] <mrsun> gah, can anyone name a place where i can buy components etc?
[16:50:31] <ssi> what kind of components?
[16:50:31] <mrsun> there is a page im looking for and now i remember, digikey: P
[16:51:20] <ssi> so does anyone have any insight into how emc's G76 threading cycle behaves with respect to thread depth in G7 or G8 mode?
[16:51:58] <Danimal_garage> JT-Shop: did you see what i said about the mill before you got kicked?
[16:52:03] <mrsun> what is best to use? incremental or absolute? :)
[16:52:14] <ssi> book says a 16tpi thread is .0338" deep, but that's WAY too shallow... so I think hey maybe in G7 diameter mode I should double it... and even doubled it's too shallow :/
[16:52:21] <JT-Shop> mrsun: not usually but possible
[16:52:23] <ssi> so wtf am I doing wrong :D
[16:53:58] <mrsun> capacitive, magnetic (feels like this should not be so good so close to motor windings?) mechanical or optical ? :)
[16:53:59] -!- psha has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
[16:54:25] <ssi> optical
[16:54:35] <ssi> I can maybe dig up the encoders I bought
[16:54:52] <mrsun> gah there is so many different types :P
[16:55:24] <mrsun> tacho, sine, quad with index, quad analog, quad incremental, octal, gray code, binary, bcd ....
[16:55:38] <ssi> quad with index :D
[16:56:35] <A2Sheds> mrsun: maybe it's time to spend some time reading the forums to see how all this works and about all the types of encoders and motor setups

[17:07:33] <JT-Shop> Danimal_garage: last thing I saw Danimal_garage he wants $1000 for it, i think i'm going to grab it
[17:08:02] <Danimal_garage> yea thats pretty much it
[17:08:13] <JT-Shop> what is the travel?
[17:08:21] <Danimal_garage> i'd prefer a vmc, but i just dont think i have the room
[17:08:32] <JT-Shop> mine is X18 Y12.5 Z16
[17:08:43] <Danimal_garage> probably close to the shizuoka which is 17x37
[17:08:53] <Danimal_garage> might be a few inches smaller
[17:09:12] <Danimal_garage> z is only 5.5 since it's a quill
[17:10:00] <Danimal_garage> he had a smaller vmc there, but it's too tall to fit in my garage door
[17:11:37] <JT-Shop> nice size then
[17:11:37] <JT-Shop> mine is a bit small sometimes
[17:13:03] <Danimal_garage> my parts are only 7.5 inches in diameter, max
[17:13:33] <Danimal_garage> i'd prefer a smal machine

[17:35:55] <IchGucksLive> hi all ->FAST RECOVERY RECTIFIER <- what is this a Diode ?
[17:36:04] <IchGucksLive> FR307
[17:37:40] <cradek> yes
[17:37:40] <A2Sheds> yes, a diode
[17:38:41] <Tom_itx> a fast one
[17:38:46] <Tom_itx> shottky etc
[17:39:15] <A2Sheds> people tend to oversimplify and think of a diode as a one way device, that's not entirely true when you're working with AC signals
[17:39:29] <A2Sheds> esp at higher frequencies
[17:40:11] <Danimal_garage> did you get it JT-Shop?
[17:40:27] <Loetmichel> A2Sheds: define higher frequencies ;-)
[17:41:40] <Loetmichel> a 1n4007 is at 10khz more of a resistor in both ways... but a 1n4148 should do some 10^3 times more ;-)
[17:42:20] <A2Sheds> that FR307 has a 500ns max. reverse recovery time

[18:22:26] <IchGucksLive> most use the byv27/200
[18:27:42] <A2Sheds> heh, check this out, type: do a barrel roll ,in Google search, the screen will actually roll
[18:28:25] <Quack> can't you just put a cheap high voltage (low current) schottky diode in parallel with it to "speed things up"
[18:29:10] <Quack> IchGucksLive can you send me one of your PCB milling kits?
[18:29:18] <Quack> PCB routing*
[18:29:33] <IchGucksLive> its not a kit
[18:29:52] <IchGucksLive> i do this only for my education in the factory i work
[18:31:00] <IchGucksLive> does uf5404 equal FR304
[18:31:04] <IchGucksLive> fr307

[18:34:55] <Quack> uhh the UF5404 has lower junction capacitance
[18:35:16] <Quack> that generally means faster responses across the board
[18:35:30] <IchGucksLive> if i can NOT get the money back from the chinese i will do so

[18:36:21] <Quack> interesting.......
[18:36:21] <IchGucksLive> they are here at 16 Eurocent
[18:36:38] <Quack> usually smaller Cj leads to faster responsiveness
[18:37:10] <A2Sheds> my Cj must be pretty high today
[18:39:16] <Quack> lol we were saying the same thing i'm sorry
[18:39:19] <Quack> i got mixed up
[18:39:51] <Quack> yeah the UF5404 has lower Cj and also is faster
[18:41:01] <Quack> generally bigger diodes (larger amps) are also slower diodes

[18:41:28] <Quack> but other things play a role too obviously

[19:34:08] <Quack> what are you guys using these diodes for?
[19:39:52] <tom3p> me? back emf on edm power module ( 100V 75A )
[19:40:24] <Quack> oh yeah basically a surging diode
[19:40:31] <Quack> to protect your FETs
[19:40:36] <Quack> or am i wrong?

[19:48:57] <jdhNC> an suggestions for a snubber diode for a 24v relay coil?
[19:52:03] <tom3p> in4004 last digit depends on current, 4 would be for typical 'ice cube'
[19:52:26] <tom3p> DC coil ;)
[19:52:57] <jdhNC> I think that's what I used, might have been a 1 though
[19:53:11] <jdhNC> any way to tell the difference?
[19:54:42] <tom3p> if you cant read it , i dunno
[19:55:06] <jdhNC> nothing readable on them
[19:57:35] <tom3p> the diameter is a rough estimate of current capability, you'd have to get mfctr docs to find these, try digikey & get a pdf from diodes incorporated for the 1n4001
[19:57:49] <tom3p> it should have infor on 4002 4004 400x
[19:58:10] <jdhNC> I'll just go with the bigger ones if they are both in there.
[20:06:54] <tom3p> well the pcb will have holes drilled for the diodes legs , and that changes with current capability, look first
[20:09:50] <jdhNC> I made the board, huge hole due to drilling with a 0.0625 end mill
[20:13:24] <tom3p> i lied, the x in 400x is voltage not current, but the diameter really is indicitive of current capability http://www.onsemi.com/pub_link/Collateral/1N4001-D.PDF
[20:13:36] <tom3p> so all 1n400x are 1 amp
[20:13:59] <jdhNC> any should be fine then
[20:14:58] <jdhNC> thanks for looking.

[21:31:04] <andypugh> They are used in throttle and EGR valve feedback applications in cars. They seem reliable.
[21:32:10] <A2Sheds> mrsun: unless you are building an RF welder or something else with lots of noise it should be fine

[23:09:04] <Danimal_garage> while you're here, i know i asked you before, but what would be a good card for someone who needs a lot on outputs?
[23:09:20] <Danimal_garage> assuming i'm running a 5i20 or something similar
[23:09:26] <Danimal_garage> gpio
[23:09:47] <andypugh> Define "a lot"
[23:10:21] <Danimal_garage> i use up quite a few with the toolchanger alone, and the new mill has the same toolchanger so i want to make surei have enouigh this time
[23:10:22] <Danimal_garage> hmm
[23:10:25] <Danimal_garage> give me a sec
[23:10:49] <Danimal_garage> 20ish?
[23:11:00] <Danimal_garage> plus a similar amount of inputs
[23:11:02] <andypugh> Inputs or outputs?
[23:11:15] <Danimal_garage> 20 of each
[23:11:27] <andypugh> 7i64 has 24 of each
[23:11:39] <Danimal_garage> ooohh
[23:11:43] <Danimal_garage> perfect
[23:12:39] <andypugh> Or a 7i70 and a 7i71 have 48 inputs and 48 outputs respectively.
[23:13:05] <Danimal_garage> might be a bit much
[23:13:15] <Danimal_garage> 24 and 24 would be awesome
[23:13:34] <andypugh> 7i70 + 7i71 costs exactly the same as a 7i64
[23:13:49] <andypugh> But are 28V rather than 48V rates
[23:14:01] <Danimal_garage> really, hmm
[23:14:26] <Danimal_garage> maybe i should just use the 7i70 and 71 then
[23:14:44] <Danimal_garage> it'll all be 24 volts or less
[23:14:55] <andypugh> Sorry, 32V. But only 300mA for each output pin (7i64 is 2.5A per pin)
[23:15:29] <Danimal_garage> ah
[23:15:32] <andypugh> Also, 7i64 inputs and outputs are all isolated.
[23:15:41] <Danimal_garage> ah
[23:15:43] <Danimal_garage> ok
[23:15:50] <Danimal_garage> 7i64 then
[23:16:12] <Danimal_garage> i just hope this machine has encoders instead of resolvers
[23:16:18] <andypugh> You can always add a 7i70 or 71 too.
[23:16:24] <Danimal_garage> i'm sick of dealing with resolvers
[23:16:28] <Danimal_garage> true
[23:16:32] <andypugh> What's wrong with Resolvers?
[23:17:05] <andypugh> (I plan to push the 7i49 resolver card driver today or tomorrow)
[23:17:28] <Tom_itx> mmm this must be the Okuma lathe book
[23:18:20] <Danimal_garage> didnt feel like buying pico resolver boards again
[23:18:50] <Danimal_garage> does the 7i49 eliminate the need for aditional cards?
[23:19:16] <Danimal_garage> the pico boards work awesome, i just would rather not drop $450 on them
[23:19:59] <Danimal_garage> sweet

[23:21:34] <Danimal_garage> not too bad

[23:27:11] <andypugh> Is it wrong to have lots of O<101> if / O<101> endifs in the same G-code file? ie, for every one of dozens of if/endif pairs to have the same O-number?
[23:27:53] <Danimal_garage> i dont even know what you just said :)
[23:28:18] <andypugh> ? It seems like a simple question, even if there is no simple answer
[23:28:49] <Danimal_garage> i dont know what an 0<101> is
[23:29:12] <andypugh> Never used if/endif in your g-code?
[23:29:21] <Danimal_garage> no
[23:29:54] <Danimal_garage> i'm not a cnc guy
[23:29:55] <andypugh> while/endwhile do/while? repeat/endrepeat?
[23:30:12] <Danimal_garage> nope, never heard of it
[23:30:37] <andypugh> You cut sprockets without loops? How on earth?
[23:30:50] <Danimal_garage> lol
[23:31:05] <Danimal_garage> is that bad?
[23:31:14] <andypugh> It's inconceivable
[23:31:19] <Tom_itx> for subroutines?
[23:31:32] <Danimal_garage> i use mastercam
[23:31:43] <Danimal_garage> whatever it outputs, i use lol
[23:31:45] <Tom_itx> yeah the cad cams just spit the code out
[23:31:53] <Tom_itx> i clean it up sometimes
[23:32:07] <Danimal_garage> i add stuff like g64's and whatnot
[23:32:17] <Danimal_garage> but for the most part, i just run it
[23:32:17] <Tom_itx> i fix my post so i don't have ot
[23:32:18] <Tom_itx> to
[23:33:25] <Tom_itx> haha jdhNC, just got a small mailer box in the mail so i can cut the stuff and stuff the box at the post
[23:33:29] <Tom_itx> if that made sense
[23:33:45] <Danimal_garage> i only have cnc machines as a necessity of making parts for money, i don't have a ton of interest in them
[23:33:51] <Danimal_garage> i'm more of a manual machine guy
[23:34:07] <Tom_itx> i think they're cool
[23:34:24] <andypugh> Danimal_garage: This G-code program will cut any sprocket, depending on the input values. (OK, so it needs a rotary table) http://www.linuxcnc.org/component/option,com_kunena/Itemid,20/func,view/catid,38/id,5176/lang,english/#5180
[23:35:04] <Tom_itx> i made a macro for generating sprockets for my cam once
[23:35:51] <Danimal_garage> i've been running manual machines for 14 years straight. i've only had some cnc experience for about 6 of those years, and that was mostly conversational controls, not g code
[23:36:49] <Danimal_garage> andypugh: i have a solidworks model where i only change the pitch diameter and do a circular patern to create a new tooth count
[23:37:04] <andypugh> Ah, well, you are more of a CNC guy than me then, I have used CNC for a total of about 20 hours.
[23:37:40] <Danimal_garage> the difference is you probably are interested in it
[23:37:56] <andypugh> Yes, that would be why I chose it as a hobby...
[23:38:07] <Danimal_garage> exactly :)
[23:38:17] <PCW> Well I cant get the resolver thing to work (it segvs)
[23:38:20] <andypugh> Actually, making a clock was the plan.
[23:38:34] <Danimal_garage> i chose it as a career so i do as little of it as possible

[23:40:52] <andypugh> It works fine for me here, except for not having any hardware to work with.
[23:43:24] <Tom_itx> Danimal_garage, what do you use to post gcode from solidworks?
[23:44:26] <Tom_itx> andypugh, it's a hobby for me as well but it paid for my cad cam software
[23:49:03] <andypugh> For me the hobby seems to have mutated into writing drivers. I haven't touched the machine for weeks.
[23:49:23] <andypugh> (I have used the completed machine to make parts).
[23:50:01] <Tom_itx> i kinda wondered how you got roped into writing alot of the drivers
[23:50:17] <andypugh> Does anyone here have experience with White Metal (Babbitt) bearings? I am going to try to do the re-metalling of the Fire Engine engine myself.
[23:50:45] <Tom_itx> the only experience i have was on an old ford pickup years back
[23:51:04] <andypugh> OK, how did you do it?
[23:51:05] <Tom_itx> we ground one of the journals in vehicle and replaced one of the rods
[23:51:27] <Tom_itx> i'm not sure where the rod came from
[23:52:12] <andypugh> I am more intersted in the "casting new babbit onto the shells and machining" part of the process.
[23:52:37] <Tom_itx> and i'm not sure where the grinder came from either it belonged to an employer when i was quit a bit younger :)
[23:52:46] <Tom_itx> yeah i figured
[23:53:09] <Tom_itx> i don't know how they size them once they are cast onto the iron
[23:53:18] <andypugh> I guess you swapped for new shells, rather than re-metalled the old ones?
[23:53:31] <Tom_itx> i think so
[23:53:43] <andypugh> Ah, the white metal was direct on the rod?
[23:53:47] <Tom_itx> this was years ago
[23:53:50] <Tom_itx> yes
[23:54:04] <andypugh> I didn't know they did that
