[00:00:30] <roycroft> most often, one for a drill bit, one for a countersink, and one for a screwgun bit
[00:01:03] <roycroft> sometimes one for a center drill, one for a jobber drill, and one for a countersink
[00:05:49] <Tom_itx> ubuntu doesn't like ati video cards?
[00:06:21] <Tom_itx> oh wait.. maybe it's just slow
[00:08:16] <Tom_itx> i wonder if this pc will even work for it
[00:10:27] <tjb1> Ever use a screw driver gun?
[00:10:30] <tjb1> Thing impacts :D
[00:11:32] <roycroft> i've used scewguns heaps of times
[00:13:08] <tjb1> The ones that impact?
[00:14:27] <tjb1> http://www.cordlessimpactdriverreviews.com/images/18v%20Impact%20Driver.jpg
[00:15:16] <roycroft> yes
[00:15:23] <tjb1> They are awesommmee
[00:15:27] <roycroft> indeed, they are
[00:15:35] <tjb1> Except the price of batteries
[00:16:35] <Tom_itx> i don't think this pc will work, i'm getting blinking leds on the kbd now
[00:16:42] <Tom_itx> live cd install
[00:18:06] <Tom_itx> athlon 64 3200
[00:18:17] <Tom_itx> anyone try one of those?
[00:19:05] <andypugh> How many cores?
[00:19:42] <Tom_itx> one i think
[00:19:50] <Tom_itx> it's an older pc
[00:21:01] <Tom_itx> boots windows fine
[00:21:13] <Tom_itx> it's been sitting here for a while so i thought i'd try it
[00:21:34] <kb8wmc> I updated my brother's computer on his router table and am getting an error on LinuxCNC startup as follow: Can not find -sec MOT -var MOT -num 1
[00:21:50] <Tom_itx> this hangs on the initial install
[00:22:03] * roycroft is still struggling to get a good working computer for his linuxcnc production install
[00:22:09] <kb8wmc> Can not fine -sec IO -var IO -num 1
[00:22:32] <roycroft> someone here recommended an inexpensive (~US$80?) logic board that is known to work well
[00:22:43] <Tom_itx> atom
[00:22:45] <Tom_itx> i have one
[00:22:50] <roycroft> this new rack i got today to house things is fairly shallow
[00:22:56] <kb8wmc> Can not find -sec LINUXCNC -var NML_FILE -num1
[00:23:00] <roycroft> the 1u machine i've been working with is too deep for it
[00:23:11] <roycroft> so it may be time to buy that other board and a shallow rack enclosure
[00:23:30] <kb8wmc> Can not find EMC -var NML_FILE -num1
[00:24:09] <kb8wmc> any ideas what to do to fix the errors

[00:31:47] <eric_unterhausen> I remember someone mentioning a stepper drive on the email list, but I can't find it.
[00:31:51] <eric_unterhausen> Leadwill?
[00:32:00] <andypugh> Either they don't matter, or they are not the underlying problem

[00:33:53] -!- Tom_afk [Tom_afk!~Tl@unaffiliated/toml/x-013812] has joined #linuxcnc
[00:34:18] <Tom_afk> i was wrong, it's an athlon 64 3700 with little ram
[00:35:09] <Tom_afk> is 512M enough?
[00:35:19] <andypugh> Count the cores?
[00:35:23] <eric_unterhausen> the other day my boss asked me what it meant in our paper when it said N-m
[00:35:25] <Tom_afk> oe
[00:35:26] <Tom_afk> one
[00:35:40] <andypugh> 512 ought to be enough.
[00:36:00] <Tom_afk> it hangs on the install
[00:36:04] <Jymmm> I wonder how it determines the length? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-Hr3BLKKsw
[00:36:05] <Tom_afk> gets all sorts of errors
[00:36:14] <Tom_afk> runs windows fine
[00:36:18] <Tom_afk> i'm on it currently
[00:36:18] <andypugh> Tom_itx: Did you count it twice to be sure?
[00:36:36] <eric_unterhausen> he also asked what the parenthetical (lbf-in) meant
[00:36:39] <Tom_afk> looking at cpu-z right now
[00:36:53] <eric_unterhausen> Tom_afk, what kind of errors?
[00:37:53] <Tom_afk> lots of io errors
[00:38:00] <Tom_afk> look like some disk sector errors
[00:38:07] <Tom_afk> but it never gets to the hdd
[00:38:08] <eric_unterhausen> io is usually disk
[00:38:43] <Tom_afk> lemme try it again
[00:38:50] <eric_unterhausen> I used to have a usb drive that had the smart diagnostics installed so that I could test all the windows computers that seemed to have disk problems
[00:38:53] <Tom_afk> i'll remove all the hdd jumpers on the back this time
[00:39:00] -!- Tom_afk has quit []
[00:39:00] <eric_unterhausen> windows will just slow down and not tell you about them
[00:39:18] <Tom_itx> i'll try that first and see
[00:40:21] <eric_unterhausen> unfortunately that usb drive died when I threw my keys in a fit of annoyance
[00:40:24] <andypugh> Jymmm: "We couldn't be bothered to find a ful set of washers of the same size, but our machine is cheap and works for at least several minutes"
[00:40:44] <kb8wmc> andypugh: thanks for the suggested option.....brother won't be too happy though
[00:40:53] <Jymmm> andypugh: heh, where did you see that?
[00:43:18] <eric_unterhausen> at 2:15 it has an error
[00:44:06] <andypugh> Jymmm: Near the cutting blade. I notice these things. I _really_ notice missing bolts. I will be walking down the street thinking about other things and get a sudden "missing bolt alert" and spend a while working out where I saw it, and if it matters. Honda motorcycles are the main problem, they tend to share parts and simply not use lugs and flanges.

[00:45:16] <Jymmm> andypugh: LOL. I wasn't sure if the rotation of the yellow drum was actually the "counter"
[00:50:58] <archivist> er tube out sensor on one slot only!
[00:51:18] <Jymmm> I dont see anythng at 0:18.
[00:52:00] <archivist> washers are different
[00:52:11] <andypugh> The guy making the video didnt either.
[00:52:21] <Jymmm> I'm sorta kinda thinking the rottion of the yellow drum jsut turns till it's fed the desired length
[00:52:28] <archivist> shakycam
[00:52:34] <roycroft> i notice not only missing bolts, but mismatched bolts

[00:53:14] <skunkworks__> eric_unterhausen: a lot of times - windows will give you diagnostics in the event viewer if it is having write/read problems
[00:53:20] <Jymmm> focus people focus! We're tyring to figure out how it measures =)
[00:53:20] <roycroft> and not always in a good way
[00:53:43] <archivist> Jymmm, its so obvious how it measures
[00:53:47] <Jymmm> I wish I could see under that drum
[00:54:16] <Jymmm> archivist: Ok Mr Smarty Pants, lets hear it =)
[00:54:19] <archivist> a stepper and circumference
[00:54:27] <Jymmm> archivist: That's what I was saing
[00:54:40] <Jymmm> saying
[00:54:59] <Jymmm> But, if the drum gets dirty, it's going to slip some
[00:55:10] <andypugh> And?
[00:55:17] <Jymmm> and shorter pieces
[00:55:56] -!- mhaberler has quit [Quit: mhaberler]
[00:56:00] <andypugh> There is no need to worry about cumulative error, as long as each bit of tube is close enough, it's fine.
[00:57:12] <Jymmm> Well, too long is no biggy
[00:57:15] <archivist> you can be extra anal and put an idler roller underneath with an encoder to measure the length
[00:57:43] <archivist> and then worry about tube driving the idler slip
[00:57:48] <Jymmm> not so much the idler, just whatever that yelow stuff is
[00:58:06] <Jymmm> (looks like tool dip =)
[00:59:28] <Tom_itx> buffer IO error on device sr0
[00:59:45] <Jymmm> Hmmm, it's about 1/4" thick

[01:03:26] <andypugh> Independent rollers for each channel would seem to be a better idea.
[01:04:19] <Jymmm> andypugh: why?
[01:04:34] <andypugh> But it probably sells for a price we wouldn't necessarily bother getting out of bed for.
[01:05:08] <andypugh> Jymmm: Ovality/orientation?

[01:07:40] <Jymmm> that last one might be great for PCB
[01:08:35] <andypugh> The second one is at least an unusual design. A bit deckel.

[01:28:57] <Tom_itx> r
[01:29:10] <Tom_itx> it worked on the atom fine
[01:29:32] <Jymmm> Well, Either 1) replace the ODD, or 2) LiveUSB
[01:31:51] <Tom_itx> no USB boot on that pc
[01:31:58] <Tom_itx> unless other removable is USB
[01:32:13] <Tom_itx> too old a pc
[01:33:00] <Jymmm> if it's that old, toss it.
[01:33:06] <tjb1> mail it to me
[01:33:07] <tjb1> :D
[01:33:16] <tjb1> Ill use the case
[01:33:49] <Tom_itx> no to both
[01:33:52] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: Hell, I'll GIVE you a serve mobo if you pay shipping.
[01:34:17] <Tom_itx> Jymmm this pc was just sitting here so i thought i'd try it
[01:34:27] <tjb1> Well if you ever give up on it let me know :)
[01:34:31] <Jymmm> try to chuck it in the trash
[01:34:33] <tjb1> Ill buy it
[01:35:42] <Tom_itx> so i shouldn't try my 8088 mb?
[01:36:12] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: Try it encapsulated in acrylic resin
[01:36:43] <Tom_itx> there's a company here that would do that
[01:36:55] <Tom_itx> they encapsulate dandelions and the like
[01:37:05] <Tom_itx> no clue how they do it
[01:37:25] <Jymmm> it's an easy two step process
[01:37:47] <Tom_itx> with no deformation of the weed?
[01:38:46] <Jymmm> you do a first pour, let it set a bit, insert whatever, then do a secound pour
[01:39:37] <Tom_itx> just pouring it would deform the seed pod
[01:39:52] <Tom_itx> very fragile
[01:40:40] <Jymmm> no, the first pour isn't solid, you insert the flower and it'll stand on it's own. then you gently pout in more slowly.
[01:41:03] <Jymmm> it's water like, so will fill the gaps
[01:41:12] <Jymmm> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2L4OxW2gKc&feature=player_embedded#!
[01:41:18] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: watch that
[01:41:21] <Tom_itx> the seeds would detach and float to the top
[01:41:49] <Jymmm> its not water
[01:41:59] <Jymmm> they are more durable than that
[01:44:40] <Tom_itx> i can see coins etc but a dandelion that has gone to seed?
[01:45:20] <Jymmm> Is they were as fragile as you make them out to be, they would never be able to pick them from the field attached.
[01:45:25] <Tom_itx> they had quite a display of things they encapsulated
[01:46:24] <Tom_itx> they looked too perfect
[01:46:36] <Jymmm> dandylions are pretty durable f you get them early in the season and not pick them at the end of summer.
[01:48:11] <Jymmm> how much do they charge for an encapsulated dandylion? $30?
[01:48:25] <Tom_itx> i dunno
[01:48:26] <Jymmm> the resin is not cheap
[01:48:38] <Tom_itx> i did some work for them and got a tour of the place
[01:48:44] <Jymmm> ah
[01:48:54] <Tom_itx> they did all sorts of things
[01:49:14] <Jymmm> probably bought in 55gal drums
[01:49:18] <Tom_itx> globes, beer taps, plaques all kinds of stuff
[01:49:25] <Tom_itx> i'm sure
[01:49:53] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: do you have the name/city of the place?
[01:50:13] <Tom_itx> i forget the name, it was something like century products maybe

[03:58:57] <uw> pyCam folks, any idea for how to optimize the tool path? it created one alright, but it's doing things in a pretty silly manner (to me the human anyway).
[04:01:15] <Tom_itx> you can't order the tool path?
[04:01:38] <Tom_itx> did it follow how you created the elements?
[04:02:17] <Tom_itx> i don't know pyCam but you should be able to order the path somehow
[04:04:05] <Connor> jdhNC: You around?
[04:07:21] <jdhNC> yep
[04:07:32] <Connor> chk pvt msg :)
[04:08:37] <uw> Tom_itx, well, there's a "reverse" button? pretty much takes every path and reverses it
[04:11:29] <Tom_itx> uw, you can't group them somehow and order the path by the group selection order?
[04:11:39] <Tom_itx> my cad cam allows that
[04:13:50] <uw> Tom_itx, just curious, can you tell me what program you are using to generate your gcode?
[04:13:55] <uw> i am rather new to this
[04:19:11] <Tom_itx> smartcam
[04:19:15] <Tom_itx> it's a pro package
[04:19:49] <Tom_itx> does pyCam run in linux or windows?

[04:21:29] <uw> Tom_itx, thanks looks pretty good
[04:21:42] <Tom_itx> ?
[04:21:48] <Tom_itx> what did you do?
[04:22:23] <uw> pyCam runs in linux. It doesnt look like smartcam makes a linux variant
[04:22:31] <Tom_itx> no
[04:22:35] <Tom_itx> and it's not cheap
[04:22:50] <uw> i just googled smartcam, thats all.
[04:22:57] <uw> how much does it cost?
[04:23:03] <Tom_itx> mastercam is also another one
[04:23:15] <Tom_itx> it was ~8k when i got it
[04:23:29] <uw> holy moly i thought you were going to say $500 or something
[04:23:47] <uw> jesus that better have came with a set of hookers lol
[04:24:11] <uw> i just want to make a "#1 Dad" plaque for fathers day
[04:24:20] <Tom_itx> the guy i was programming for at the time replaced it with a seat of catia for $75k
[04:24:24] <uw> 8k is a little out of budget for me
[04:25:11] <uw> ouch at that rate, it's probably a pretty custom piece of 1 or 2 off software
[04:25:16] <Tom_itx> look at sheetcam?
[04:25:21] <Tom_itx> i think it's called
[04:26:49] <uw> hmm sheet cam also has a linux variant

[04:28:43] <uw> but maybe i can learn something here; so what more do you get from a $8k CAM software say over whatever sheetcam costs?
[04:29:49] <Tom_itx> it's a full blown 3d package
[04:30:18] <Tom_itx> allows you to define post for various machines
[04:30:22] <Tom_itx> lots more
[04:30:31] <uw> so say for a 6axis robot arm machine?
[04:30:52] <Tom_itx> it's for cutting parts
[04:30:58] <Tom_itx> not robotics control
[04:31:33] <Tom_itx> i don't know how they have progressed since i got it but it didn't do that at the time
[04:31:35] <uw> well yes, but one of those robotic arm cutting machines
[04:31:56] <Tom_itx> i'm sure some does it now

[09:43:16] <Helios> There was a transparent screen and two hoses drenching this delrin rod with cooland as this spindle whizzed it down into a bagpipes blow hole.
[09:43:27] <Helios> They gave me a load of delrin offcut

[10:14:02] <Loetmichel> Helios: looks like a nice firerstarter ;-)
[10:14:43] <Helios> Its in the oven at 100 degrees
[10:14:49] <Helios> I'm evaporating off the coolant
[10:14:54] <Helios> Its drenched in that shit
[10:15:12] <Jymmm> I hope you washed it off
[10:15:12] <Helios> I want to slowly crank it up to 175ºc to the point it melts then pour it into my gear mold
[10:15:16] <Loetmichel> thats why i mill delrin dry
[10:15:27] <Helios> That coolant is flammable?
[10:15:38] <Helios> What temperature is autoignition of most CNC coolants?
[10:15:40] <Jymmm> contaminant
[10:15:50] <Helios> You think give it a good rinse?
[10:16:04] <Helios> under the tap?
[10:16:13] <Jymmm> soak in a tub
[10:17:07] <Jymmm> stir frequently, maybe toss in a *TOUCH* or liquid soap, dump, rinse in clean water
[10:17:27] <Jymmm> how many bags did you get?
[10:19:27] <Jymmm> If you only got the one bag, you might just make your own machinable wax with it. Else I wouldn't even bother.
[10:19:47] <Helios> ok ive taken it out of the oven and I rinsed it the water went a cloudy blue colour
[10:19:50] <Helios> i rinsed about 10x
[10:19:51] <Helios> its clear
[10:19:56] <Jymmm> delrin is not THAT expensive.
[10:19:58] <Helios> I shook as much of the water off the delrin offcut as possible
[10:20:26] <Helios> I've set the oven onto 120ºc to start off with and I will slowly increase the temp
[10:20:40] <Jymmm> toss it into a net bag and spin it in the washer to drain, like a giant salad spinner
[10:20:46] <Helios> If it starts to stink really bad I'll throw the whole stainless bowl out the window like I did with the PVC
[10:21:15] <Helios> 1 massive bag of delrin
[10:21:30] <Helios> and some crap bagpipes blowers that the machine fucked up
[10:21:38] <Helios> I noticed something, those CNC machines are not perfect
[10:24:27] <Jymmm> Helios: Wait, you are doing this in the HOUSE?!
[10:25:29] <Jymmm> Helios: you know some do contain formaldehyde, right?
[10:25:53] <Jymmm> embalming fluid?
[10:26:04] <Helios> yes
[10:26:15] <Helios> It won't smell as bad as the molten PVC I tried
[10:26:20] <Helios> That was fucking disgusting
[10:26:28] <Helios> It was soooo bad I HAD to throw it out the window
[10:26:32] <Helios> the whole stainless bowl
[10:26:51] <Helios> Sorry Jymm, but some of us are not lucky enough to have jobs where we can do this sort of stuff at.
[10:26:54] <Loetmichel> jym: IIRC delrin is smell-free if not heated over the decomposition point
[10:27:16] <Loetmichel> just that the melting point and decomposition pint are awfully close thogehter
[10:27:18] <Jymmm> This has nothing to do with SCENT
[10:27:27] <Helios> Loetmichel, if I crank the oven up to 180ºc now will I be able to pour delrin like honey or water?
[10:27:59] <Loetmichel> Helios: dont know the temperatures, but you CAN get delrin thin as water without it decompositing
[10:28:13] <Helios> Loetmichel, thank you very much
[10:28:34] <Loetmichel> as in: "without any harmful substances evaporating"
[10:28:57] <Jymmm> bullshit
[10:29:22] <Helios> That's ok, I airlock out my kitchen and I hold my breath before I go in, when doing this shit I NEVER breathe in I do 30 seconds of work with my shirt over my nose then go out and breathe when my head is out of the window the other side of the flat
[10:29:26] <Loetmichel> but like i said: IIRC the points of melting and decomposition are very close, few °c
[10:30:05] <Helios> So gently increase the temperature
[10:30:22] <Loetmichel> Jymmm: hmmm, tell that to the plastics company i had visited.
[10:30:31] <Loetmichel> they extruded delrin

[10:31:28] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: Most have proper ventilation systems
[10:31:40] <Loetmichel> and in germany you WOULD be if the evaporations would be harmful

[10:34:39] <Loetmichel> nice idea, i hope you enjoy it
[10:44:14] <mazafaka> well, yeah. Already have bought a hi-lift jack, and electric air pump (160 litres per minute)/ Plan to mount the air pump under the hood, and all the ropes

[11:26:04] <Loetmichel> Helios: you should clean the camera lens ;-)
[11:26:30] <Loetmichel> and formaldehyde= to hot!
[11:27:18] <Helios> So its burning?
[11:27:22] <Helios> Throw it out?
[11:27:29] <Loetmichel> no, not burnung
[11:27:43] <Loetmichel> just partly decompositing
[11:27:53] <Helios> So I won't be able to pour it?
[11:27:58] <Loetmichel> could be that your gear will be a bit less strong than you wish
[11:28:34] <Helios> I wish I had something like a bain marie that could do 175 degrees c
[11:28:44] <Helios> Water only goes up to 100
[11:28:49] <Loetmichel> whats a bain maire?
[11:29:17] <Helios> for wax melting I could melt the wax in seconds with a boiling pan of water then floating the stainless bowl full of wax afloat on the boiling water
[11:29:54] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: double boiler
[11:30:13] <Jymmm> or water bath
[11:30:36] <Loetmichel> ah...
[11:30:37] <Jymmm> and water CAN get hotter than 100C/212F
[11:30:46] <Helios> 175? doubtful
[11:30:47] <Loetmichel> so geht a pan full of good vegetable oil
[11:30:54] <Helios> vegetable oil?
[11:31:03] <Loetmichel> instead of water
[11:31:11] <Loetmichel> will boil at above 200°c
[11:31:11] <Helios> What temp does veg oil start to burn?
[11:31:12] <Loetmichel> ;-)
[11:31:17] <Loetmichel> later

[11:33:01] <Helios> Do you think this will be better than the oven?
[11:33:08] <Loetmichel> dont know
[11:33:22] <Loetmichel> is the oven electric or gas?
[11:33:33] <Helios> electric
[11:33:41] <Loetmichel> and is it with recirculating fan?
[11:33:44] <Helios> no
[11:33:47] <Helios> just windows open
[11:33:54] <Helios> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gc-z7b5len0
[11:33:59] <Loetmichel> "hot air" oven i mean
[11:34:01] <Helios> this is what's actually happening
[11:34:27] <Loetmichel> do you have a precise thermomenter?
[11:34:31] <Helios> no
[11:34:31] <Loetmichel> for inside the oven?
[11:34:33] <Helios> no
[11:34:37] <Loetmichel> hmm, thats bad
[11:34:40] <Helios> the local shop doesn't sell those
[11:35:06] <Loetmichel> maybe a electronicans miltimeter with an attached thermocouple?
[11:35:06] <r00t4rd3d> http://i.imgur.com/XxUJr.jpg
[11:35:21] <Loetmichel> like the 20 eur thingys they sell over here in germany?
[11:35:56] <Helios> Loetmichel, I don't know what those are I'm sorry
[11:36:52] <Loetmichel> http://www.reichelt.de/Multimeter-digital/PEAKTECH-1070/3//index.html?ACTION=3&GROUPID=4058&ARTICLE=67138&SHOW=1&START=0&OFFSET=16&
[11:37:23] <Loetmichel> they come with a thermocouple over here which is surprisingly accurate
[11:37:34] <Helios> Oh I got a multimeter
[11:37:39] <Helios> A thermocouple I don't got
[11:37:44] <Helios> haven't got
[11:38:08] <Helios> It doesn't have a ºc function tho
[11:38:13] <Helios> only volts, capacitance, resistance
[11:38:21] <Helios> ac dc fucntion only
[11:38:28] <Loetmichel> your problem is to geht the plastics to an even and more or less precise temperature
[11:39:03] <Loetmichel> so if you would have a good thermomenter that would help a lot
[11:39:56] <Helios> yes
[11:40:34] * Loetmichel would use an old hydraulic cylinder, put the swarf in, and build a makeshift injection moulder around it.
[11:41:00] <Helios> Loetmichel, won't work for zero shrinkage molds because the molds are flexible
[11:41:15] <Loetmichel> thats a problem
[11:41:22] <Helios> You apply pressure beyond the material's own eightthe mold will solidfiy not in its original shape
[11:41:26] <Loetmichel> so you would get a double size gear ;-)
[11:41:30] <Helios> Wax, soap, chocolate gears have all been made
[11:41:40] <Helios> The soap was teh strongest until it came into contacft with water
[11:41:44] <Helios> the chocolate one got eaten
[11:41:49] <Helios> the wax one became a candle
[11:41:50] <Loetmichel> hrhr
[11:41:59] <Loetmichel> maybe change from delrin to som resin?
[11:42:12] <Loetmichel> ans simply cast it ?
[11:42:20] <Helios> resin's expensive
[11:42:25] <Loetmichel> not really
[11:42:25] <Helios> I wanted to take advantage of recycling
[11:43:02] <Loetmichel> i pay for my beloved urethane resin (sika bi resin g27) about 20 eur the kg
[11:43:23] <Helios> urethane gears any good?
[11:44:03] <jthornton> Loetmichel, what is the hardness of the g27?
[11:44:04] <Loetmichel> depends
[11:44:43] <jthornton> is it similar to any of these http://www.mcmaster.com/#urethane-casting-compounds/=hz1eyg
[11:47:46] <Loetmichel> not as sturdy as delrin, but sufficient for my applications
[11:48:29] <Loetmichel> jthornton: dont know...
[11:48:39] <jthornton> ok, thanks for looking
[11:49:37] <Loetmichel> http://deaddconst01.webdms.sika.com/fileshow.do?documentID=3294
[11:50:15] <Loetmichel> does that help?
[11:50:29] <jthornton> yes, thank you
[11:50:48] <Loetmichel> be careful with that stuff...
[11:50:54] <Loetmichel> it harenes in minutes
[11:50:58] <Loetmichel> and gets HOT
[11:51:26] <Helios> So its an exothermic reaction?
[11:51:33] <Loetmichel> i had a part only 3" thick flying in shrapnells throu the shop
[11:51:34] <jthornton> ok, it is Shore D 70, that is the main thing I was wondering about
[11:52:48] <Loetmichel> i didnt get shore the first time... isnt that vor elastics?
[11:53:02] <jthornton> hardness of the material
[11:53:04] <Loetmichel> whay are hard plastics measured in shore?
[11:53:25] <jthornton> I have no idea
[11:54:04] <Loetmichel> anyone knows the shore of delrin?
[11:56:50] <Helios> delrin is pretty touch
[11:56:57] <Helios> they make safety buckles out of it
[11:57:38] <Loetmichel> btw: this system is also aviable with a filler of aluminium flakes
[11:57:50] <Helios> why?
[11:57:53] <Helios> better strength?
[11:57:54] <Loetmichel> whcih makes it astonishingly hard and sturdy
[11:58:12] <Loetmichel> yes
[11:58:16] <jthornton> mcmaster calls the aluminum filled PU as machinable PU
[11:58:41] <Loetmichel> *SHIT* i shouldn answer the phone on saturdays...

[13:32:11] <Loetmichel> Helios: looks not really appealing
[13:32:51] <Loetmichel> i am happy there is no "odor over IP" protocol :)
[13:33:49] <Helios> bad smell
[13:33:55] <Helios> not quite as bad as PVC
[13:33:58] <Helios> but worse than ABS
[13:34:09] <Helios> My yard outdoors is full of partially melted plastic now
[13:34:27] <Helios> Oh and one bowl has some ABS tiles stuck to the bottom of it and there is no way of getting it off
[13:34:41] <cpresser> beware of melting PVC, that is quite poisonous
[13:34:52] <syyl> and it lets rust everything!
[13:35:20] <cpresser> other polymers might also be toxic; but ask someone else, i am no chemist
[13:35:27] <Loetmichel> is it poisonus or just HCl?
[13:35:28] <syyl> because of the hydrochloric acid fumes that are released...
[13:35:34] <Loetmichel> pvc
[13:35:41] <Helios> Probably why the PVC whiff made me violently sick
[13:36:03] <Helios> I don't feel this way with the formaldehyde fumes, probably because I smoke enough of them in my cigarettes anyway and my body knows how to deal with it
[13:36:09] <Loetmichel> hcl isnt poisonus
[13:36:16] <Loetmichel> just acidic ;-)

[13:36:38] <Loetmichel> Helios: thats a pos i would assime

[13:37:54] <Helios> syyl you're right
[13:37:57] <Loetmichel> Helios: you look like someone i may have beaten some decades ago on my navy visit to dundee..
[13:38:00] <Helios> I've had it trying to melt these plastic
[13:38:01] <Helios> s
[13:38:05] <Loetmichel> you dont happen to live there?
[13:38:21] <Helios> I used to
[13:38:27] <Helios> Nearer Glasgow now
[13:38:32] <Loetmichel> hmmm
[13:38:53] <Loetmichel> than maybe our fists have met som 20 years ago ;-)
[13:39:36] <Loetmichel> in a pub in the harbor of dundee ;-)
[13:40:25] <Loetmichel> or maybe that was your older brother or something ;-)
[13:42:09] <Helios> nah I was only in dundee in 08
[13:43:15] <Loetmichel> strange. the face looked familliar
[13:44:53] <Loetmichel> (was there with the german navvy... heard of som incident where a german navy crew dismantled a pub incl. inhabitants after one of them got beaten up by some dundee residents in that pub a day before?)
[13:47:00] <Helios> No I lived there for a day with my gf and her flatmates took a disliking to me so we split up and I lived on the street for a number of years until I eventually got rehoused in 2011

[13:55:59] <r00t4rd3d> someone wanna cut me that for less then $80.45
[13:56:25] <syyl> with the philips head screw it just looks like crap :D
[13:56:30] <r00t4rd3d> yeah
[13:56:51] <r00t4rd3d> if i buy it, it will get a chrome allen head
[13:57:00] <syyl> blackened allen head
[13:57:01] <syyl> :D
[13:57:20] <r00t4rd3d> those rust

[13:57:30] <Loetmichel> less schrap
[13:57:36] <r00t4rd3d> Loetmichel, it is
[13:57:58] <Loetmichel> then the $80 are a ripoff
[13:58:13] <Loetmichel> assuming the holder has 43mm diamaeter
[13:58:22] <syyl> i would charge 80 bucks too
[13:58:26] <r00t4rd3d> you can see the threaded bolt holes in the hole
[13:58:32] <syyl> when made to close tolerances
[13:58:42] <syyl> and with a countersunk allen head screw..
[13:58:46] <syyl> :D
[13:58:46] <Helios> Mixed news, I rescued the delrin I thew out the window http://i.imgur.com/2q8ct.jpg
[13:58:52] <Helios> It does actually melt into shape
[13:59:05] <syyl> more like "burn into shape" ;)
[13:59:29] <Helios> IDK the bottom of that is pretty solid
[13:59:30] <Loetmichel> Helios: i still think it was much to hot
[13:59:36] <Loetmichel> to generate the fumes
[13:59:51] <Helios> Loetmichel, what happens if I try again on the hob with the boiling oil bath method?
[14:00:02] <Loetmichel> i have molten delrin myself sometime
[14:00:11] <Loetmichel> with a heatgun
[14:00:12] <syyl> i bet you wont get a good result by just melting and casting it..
[14:00:26] <syyl> that stuff wants to be pushed
[14:00:28] <Loetmichel> and it will melt just fine without much fumes if the temperature is right
[14:00:39] <r00t4rd3d> its either the 80 dollar probotix mount or this 33 dollar one:

[14:00:57] <syyl> uhm
[14:00:57] <r00t4rd3d> looks like it was made on a 3d printer
[14:01:07] <syyl> or with a jigsaw
[14:01:38] <syyl> the 34 bucks for it are a waste, if you ask me :D
[14:01:38] <Loetmichel> r00t4rd3d: why not mount the router on the machine temporaily with some screws and wire and try to mill yourself one from delrin/wood?
[14:02:17] <Loetmichel> syyl: i think so, too
[14:02:27] <Loetmichel> r00t4rd3d: whcih country, again?
[14:02:30] <r00t4rd3d> usa
[14:02:36] <r00t4rd3d> jew york
[14:02:40] <r00t4rd3d> new*
[14:02:40] <Loetmichel> i just happened to get some 40mm thick delrin ;-)
[14:02:49] <syyl> ask somebody to machine you one from a hunk of stock aluminum
[14:02:58] <r00t4rd3d> i did
[14:03:02] <r00t4rd3d> so far no takers
[14:03:23] <syyl> a good machinist will knock it of in a short time
[14:03:23] <Loetmichel> ok, that would be unsatisfying high shipping costs from germany
[14:03:40] <r00t4rd3d> i will probably just make one
[14:03:50] <r00t4rd3d> out of wood
[14:04:26] <r00t4rd3d> i made one this morning out of azek
[14:05:29] <r00t4rd3d> but its only 3/4 inches thick

[17:34:32] <sendoushi> eheh
[17:34:50] <sendoushi> hmmm
[17:35:01] <IchGuckLive> the little ones on the TB6560 driver stage there are easy to reatch
[17:35:33] <IchGuckLive> i did also replace the FR304 towards ultra fast UF5404
[17:35:58] <IchGuckLive> so 100times faster and no noice at alll no losing since 2 years
[17:36:08] <sendoushi> hm
[17:36:15] <pfred1> you upgraded your current sense resistors?
[17:36:31] <pfred1> that is where they do you up
[17:36:56] <IchGuckLive> some people got lost with a multimeter
[17:37:17] <pfred1> those manufactured TB6560 boards come with garbage current sense resistors
[17:37:36] <IchGuckLive> pfred1: yes but no need as i got the right steppers from astron that the boards are build fore
[17:37:41] <pfred1> most are setup for 1 amp max
[17:37:53] <pfred1> well they're carbon anyways
[17:38:08] <pfred1> they're just trash not real metal film current sensing resistors
[17:38:19] <pfred1> which will set you back about $3 a pop
[17:38:52] <IchGuckLive> 2w 0.5 ohm or 0.41 ohm
[17:39:21] <IchGuckLive> 0.41 ohm for the 3.5 version
[17:39:28] <pfred1> what vots do yo urun your board at?
[17:39:31] <pfred1> volts even
[17:39:36] <IchGuckLive> and with 150pf you are at 400Mhz
[17:39:45] <IchGuckLive> 24
[17:39:54] <pfred1> yeah when I built my boards I went on the high side for my timing caps
[17:40:03] <IchGuckLive> 250Wat
[17:40:13] <IchGuckLive> 100pf
[17:40:27] <IchGuckLive> i stay save
[17:40:41] <IchGuckLive> 100pf is the max of the chip
[17:40:50] <pfred1> whatever i used is in range just on the low side of it
[17:41:00] <IchGuckLive> tolerance may give you a bad result
[17:41:08] <pfred1> I used high tolerance caps
[17:41:30] <pfred1> polystyrenes
[17:41:41] <IchGuckLive> yea if you tuneup your chinese board by some USD it is a gread pice of SHIT
[17:41:49] <pfred1> no I made my own boards
[17:42:01] <IchGuckLive> 38USD no way
[17:42:04] <pfred1> I built mine before the chinese did
[17:42:27] <pfred1> just like how we got to the Moon first
[17:42:31] <IchGuckLive> B) O.O
[17:42:54] <IchGuckLive> 1206 Alarm °!
[17:43:12] <pfred1> I don't understand why the chinese boards even have freewheeling diodes on them the ICs have them built in
[17:43:16] <IchGuckLive> Reset NP
[17:43:53] <pfred1> all I can figure is they couldn't read the datasheets when they designed their stuff
[17:43:59] <IchGuckLive> therfor the FR304 is not good to stay on
[17:44:19] <pfred1> yerah you can pop all them diodes out and it'd work fine
[17:44:28] <pfred1> the old TAs needed them
[17:44:32] <pfred1> the TBs don't
[17:45:13] <pfred1> they have a new IC now
[17:45:17] <pfred1> a TH Ithink it is
[17:45:43] <pfred1> http://simewang007.en.ec21.com/Toshiba_Thb6064ah_Engraver_Machine_Step--5804224_5887880.html
[17:45:49] <IchGuckLive> the chinese will not read the datasheet of this eighter
[17:45:50] <pfred1> its massive!
[17:46:09] <pfred1> it is twice as good at the TB
[17:46:48] <pfred1> I'm excited for when I get my hands on some of those
[17:47:07] <IchGuckLive> this will drive then the big Nema23 at 4,2A
[17:47:12] <IchGuckLive> at 48V
[17:47:12] <pfred1> it should drop right into my boards without modifications
[17:47:35] <IchGuckLive> but i sugess they miss up the 5V changing
[17:47:38] <pfred1> well the basic design I'm not sure if it is a pin for pin replacement
[17:48:03] <pfred1> all I've seen about it so far is prety sketchy
[17:48:17] <pfred1> no real data sheet per se
[17:48:38] <pfred1> but it was a while ago I was looking at it perhaps things have improved?
[17:48:48] <IchGuckLive> MC34063 woudt be best for stepdown
[17:49:05] <IchGuckLive> but its double the 7805
[17:49:16] <IchGuckLive> so they miss al up again
[17:49:41] <IchGuckLive> pfred1: this is your chanche to get over Gecko and Leadshine GO FOR IT !
[17:49:50] <pfred1> use a 317HT
[17:50:12] <pfred1> it'll take 52 input volts?
[17:50:15] <IchGuckLive> not stable enoph
[17:50:18] <pfred1> something stupid like that
[17:50:46] <IchGuckLive> 317 only 32V -> MC34063 80V
[17:50:54] <pfred1> I said HT
[17:51:08] <pfred1> that is the high voltage variant
[17:52:03] <IchGuckLive> pfred1: no HT -> http://search.datasheetcatalog.net/key/317H
[17:52:07] <pfred1> but it does not go to 80V
[17:52:50] <IchGuckLive> VH ?
[17:52:52] <pfred1> http://www.national.com/ms/LB/LB-47.pdf
[17:53:08] <pfred1> ah the T might be the package
[17:53:32] <IchGuckLive> 60V
[17:53:39] <pfred1> I'm not datasheetarchive.com personally
[17:54:10] <IchGuckLive> this is tricky at 52V input
[17:54:43] <pfred1> I'm getting fair performance at 24V myself so I figure double that I should be happy heck I'm happy enough as it is
[17:55:04] <IchGuckLive> 1.5Amps is tricky too 250ma for one TH at 5 axis no way
[17:56:31] <pfred1> do you mean share one regulator for multiple axis drives?
[17:56:43] <pfred1> because if you do I dedicate regulators to drivers
[17:57:08] <pfred1> so what you're talking about is not pertinant to me
[18:01:10] <jdhNC> r00t: mostly hdpe router made by the guy that makes those mounts
[18:04:09] <pfred1> if I plug one of my PCs directly into my verizon router I cannot establisn a net connection that way but if i put it through a switch first i can strange huh?
[18:04:24] <pfred1> my LAN is all messed up
[18:04:44] <IchGuckLive> Fix it and you are fine
[18:05:02] <pfred1> yeah maybe if I walk into Verizon's mani office with a flamethrower
[18:05:14] <pfred1> it'd get fixed
[18:05:35] <pfred1> is it as hard to say as oh my god there is a man in my office with a flamethrower?
[18:06:50] <pfred1> it ticked me off because it meant I had to crawl under my house 2 more times in order to make it work
[18:07:21] <pfred1> and one of the cables I'm using is really stretched now
[18:07:35] <pfred1> I have t ohave my verizon router on the floor
[18:09:25] <pfred1> one neat thing about this place is there is an unused airshaft from the crawlspace to the attic so I can drop cables easily
[18:10:10] <Jymmm> 6" conduit?
[18:10:25] <pfred1> no it is about 2 feet by 2 feet
[18:10:35] <pfred1> big box
[18:10:40] <Jymmm> 24" conduit! =)
[18:10:46] <pfred1> prety much
[18:10:53] <Jymmm> shielded conduit too
[18:11:08] <pfred1> yeah it is sheet metal duct
[18:11:36] <pfred1> I think before i got here the place only had a single unit that did the central air
[18:11:49] <pfred1> now it is split upstairs and downstairs
[18:12:05] <Jymmm> ah
[18:12:20] <pfred1> so that left me with an extra piece of duct running upstairs
[18:12:47] <pfred1> yup you can be in the attic and look int othe crawlspace
[18:12:58] <pfred1> great for running wires
[18:13:25] <Tom_itx> laundry chute
[18:13:39] <pfred1> yeah for the clothes you never want to see ever again
[18:13:49] <Jymmm> lost sock
[18:13:53] <pfred1> my crawlspace is nasty!

[18:30:20] <jdhNC> that looks like a really bad idea.
[18:30:35] <Tom_itx> do you cook supper in the same pan?
[18:31:18] <Helios> The one that boils the oil yes, the one that melts plastics, wax and other shit no
[18:36:42] <Tom_itx> what about melting aluminum in a SS vessle would cause the SS to errode?
[18:37:10] <Helios> Tom, my zero shrinkage flexible mold makes perfect gears up to 230ºc beyond that the mold is dead
[18:37:31] <Helios> Delrin melts at 175ºc within the molds limit
[18:37:45] <Helios> Today's oven experiment proved the delrin can be melted into shape without burning
[18:37:52] <Helios> Albeit bad fumes

[18:47:13] <pcw_home> Open the windows and stay out of the house for an hour or 2...
[18:47:38] <Helios> yeah
[18:48:03] <Jymmm> Helios: I hope you realize that the outgas (formaldehyde?) burning your eyes, is probably on or coated everything in your kitchen to some extent.
[18:48:41] <pcw_home> indoor plastic pyrolysis: probably not a real good idea
[18:50:38] <pcw_home> Outdoor hotplate: also better when it catches fire
[18:52:06] <Jymmm> Water solution of formaldehyde is very corrosive and its ingestion can cause severe injury to the upper gastrointestinal tract..
[18:52:10] <pfred1> I have wanted to try to melt HDPE for a while now

[18:52:32] <Jymmm> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formaldehyde#Safety

[18:53:04] <Jymmm> pfred1: You can, but old milk residue (yuk)
[18:53:05] <pfred1> I hear you can do it with an oil double boiler
[18:53:19] <pfred1> wash the bottles I do before I recycle them anyways
[18:53:27] <pfred1> I don't want sour milk hanging around
[18:53:44] <Helios> Jymm that wasn't formaldehyde, it was a different sensation to the oven, the oil is on fire
[18:53:48] <Helios> its sunflower oil
[18:54:01] <Helios> I went outside to see the delrin, its melted and it melted much faster than the oven method
[18:54:12] <Helios> I think what I did wrong this time is I kept the oil bath too hot for too long
[18:54:19] <pfred1> yeah some folks mix oil with the plastic but you don't have to
[18:54:27] <Helios> I CO2'd the oil

[18:55:36] <pcw_home> burn the house/apartment down is another possibility
[18:55:43] <Helios> The delrin outdoors was not burning, no bad smell
[18:55:44] <syyl_ws> then its a good idea to accelerate the process of destroying the lungs :D
[18:56:03] <Helios> I switched off everything in there
[18:56:04] <Jymmm> and the girlfirend/neighbors too
[18:56:07] <Helios> I'll go down and photo the delrin
[18:58:48] <Jymmm> In the electricity costs between the oven and boiling oil, and now rechargin a CO2 fire extinguisher, you could have just bought some delrin ready to go.
[18:59:34] <Jymmm> not a donate bag of delrin swarf shavings coated in coolant.
[19:00:02] <Helios> I'm doing RECYCLING
[19:00:13] <Helios> I'm into RENEWABLE ENERGY, electricity can be made from wind and the sun
[19:00:26] <Helios> The CO2 is a lifesaver
[19:00:41] <Helios> Water on that thing would probably have destroyed the block
[19:00:52] <Helios> I'm getting very close to the answer
[19:01:01] <Helios> The delrin has more than partially melted, its MOSTLY melted now
[19:01:14] <Helios> What I did wrong there was I had the heat on the oil bath for too long
[19:01:15] <Jymmm> No, what you just did it increase your carbon footprint 10x over
[19:01:24] <Helios> Carbon footprint is a load of BS
[19:01:32] <Helios> We BREATHE carbon dioxide
[19:01:42] <Helios> So's global warming
[19:02:08] <Helios> My concerns are landfill that gets into the water, lack of domestic industry, lack of jobs, wasted material, wasted energy

[19:03:42] <Helios> And I think with delrin I may be close
[19:03:56] <Helios> PVC could not be melted without catching fire, ABS will only deform, not melt
[19:04:29] <alex4nder> why don't you just make a machine like they did in olden times

[19:05:55] <Helios> This reusable zero shrinkage mold made from Platinum catalysed silicone can go up to 230 degrees, aluminium is unsuitable, its like 660+ when molten. I believe melt pouring may be the simplest solution, so far wax, chocolate and soap gears are not very good
[19:06:00] <Helios> But I think Delrin gears may be great

[19:07:06] <Helios> Bet that machine cost a fortune, it was beind a glass screen and the delrin was drenched in coolant from 3 hoses

[19:09:01] <alex4nder> no excuse not to build your own CNC rig
[19:10:50] <pcw_home> And, assuming you do the foundry work outside, less likely to burn your house down
[19:11:43] <mrsun> how to make something truly square? :) like an angle plate .. if you were to do one yourself =)
[19:12:19] <Jymmm> mrsun: like ancient way or modern?
[19:12:31] <mrsun> wells omething you can do without having a billion machines :P
[19:12:53] <alex4nder> mrsun: you can lap 3 plates flat
[19:13:02] <mrsun> got a surface plate
[19:13:19] <mrsun> but getting something square at exactly 90 degrees from that ...
[19:13:21] <alex4nder> you make your own surface plates
[19:13:37] <Jymmm> alex4nder: ?
[19:14:02] <alex4nder> god didn't hand down a surface plate to the first machinist
[19:14:27] <mrsun> alex4nder, well i got a surface plate already :P
[19:14:32] <mrsun> so do not need to make one of those :P
[19:14:34] <Jymmm> He did to Moses =)
[19:14:46] <alex4nder> Jymmm: but those were useless, they had writing all over them
[19:14:57] <Jymmm> only on the back side
[19:15:00] <alex4nder> mrsun: you can make a 90 degree angle with just precision measuring.
[19:15:02] <mrsun> haha true that Jymmm
[19:15:06] <alex4nder> and some math
[19:15:08] <DJ9DJ> harhar :D
[19:15:16] <mrsun> but how the heck do i measure that :P
[19:15:41] <Jymmm> mrsun: do you know how to tell if frame is square?
[19:16:02] <mrsun> Jymmm, ye cross measure it .. but an angle plate isnt a square :P
[19:16:06] <Jymmm> mrsun: measure the distance of the corners diagonally
[19:16:12] <alex4nder> regardless of what moses got, I'm sure god didn't just hand down a ruler
[19:16:31] <mrsun> Jymmm, no but a rulebook :p
[19:16:37] <Jymmm> mrsun: Well, start with a block of swuared metal and compare
[19:16:40] <mrsun> so i guess you could call that a "ruler" :P
[19:16:53] <Jymmm> squared even
[19:17:25] <Jymmm> use the block and a guide and a flashlight
[19:17:32] <Jymmm> s/and/as/
[19:17:56] <mrsun> i guess i could make some of those precision cylinders in the lathe :P
[19:18:05] <mrsun> that my books talk about =)
[19:18:08] <elmo40> sure, why not?
[19:18:16] <elmo40> precision is a relative term ;)
[19:18:26] <elmo40> give me numbers of tolerance
[19:18:42] <mrsun> atleast 0.01mm ... at minimum =)
[19:18:50] <Jymmm> elmo40: whats the gravitational pull in your area?
[19:18:57] <mrsun> over like 10cm
[19:21:11] <elmo40> Jymmm: about 9.81m/s/s
[19:21:12] <elmo40> you?
[19:21:23] <Jymmm> elmo40: It sucks =)
[19:21:35] <elmo40> raise your elevation :)
[19:21:58] <Jymmm> elmo40: Every time I try, I keep getting sucked down again =)
[19:22:22] <pcw_home> or lower it (at 4000 miles down is 0)
[19:22:36] <pcw_home> s/is/its/
[19:22:53] <Jymmm> pcw_home: I forgot my asbestos suit
[19:23:06] <pcw_home> not sure that would help
[19:23:53] <Jymmm> pcw_home: I'll wrap it in delrin for insulation.
[19:24:03] <alex4nder> haha
[19:25:20] <Helios> Partially melted delrin, incredibly strong http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-98gZvgG1w
[19:25:30] <pcw_home> 5000 to 7300 K are estimates so about as hot as the surface of the sun
[19:25:43] <Jymmm> But on a serious side... If you were to machine/fabricate something "flat" at 100ft below sea level (in an ocean or whatever) how would the atmospheric pressure effect it at sea level?
[19:36:08] -!- cmorley has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
[19:39:34] <pcw_home> _In_ the ocean it would be different as the pressure change with height would be much higher
[19:39:36] <pcw_home> A flat plate should have only very small bending forces regardless of external pressure however
[19:39:36] <Tom_itx> we should make a list of things people have done in their kitchens
[19:40:24] <pcw_home> I used to make rocket fuel (definitely a mistake)
[19:40:31] <Tom_itx> heh
[19:40:55] <Helios> pcw ACPC or kerosene?
[19:40:59] <Helios> Or H2?
[19:41:04] <archivist> who didnt :)
[19:41:23] <pcw_home> Got the big "this is s FOOD PREPARATION AREA" lecture on that one
[19:42:13] <archivist> tried to dry out a mix on the radiator, set sisters underwear on fire :)
[19:42:19] <pcw_home> Saltpeter and sugar melted together
[19:44:19] <pcw_home> dumb stuff with potassium chlorate/styrene
[19:45:17] <pfred1> archivist so, you have a hawt sister?
[19:46:30] <archivist> my rocket fuel mix was sodium chlorate(weed killer) and sugar
[19:47:25] <pcw_home> chlorates are a lot less stable /forgiving than nitrates
[19:47:43] <mrsun> http://www.maskinisten.net/viewtopic.php?t=31867 <-- some pictures of my casting actualy in the machine, i can see from the pictures what needs to be modified .. but atleast its working, his comment "its like a new machine" :P

[19:48:16] <Helios> Same shit the old shuttle SRB's used
[19:48:25] <Helios> except I think that used sodium PERchlorate
[19:48:33] <Helios> Not sure of the difference
[19:50:37] <Jymmm> pcw_home: styrene?
[19:50:44] <Jymmm> pcw_home: as a binder?
[19:50:49] <pcw_home> chlorates and sugar will detonate with just a hammer hit
[19:51:09] <pcw_home> as a fuel/binder
[19:51:13] <Jymmm> ah
[19:52:24] <pcw_home> Note I DO NOT suggest anyone mess with chlorates, way too treacherous
[19:53:24] <Jymmm> pcw_home: too late, aready have a pound in a ball mill
[19:54:01] <Jymmm> Potassium chlorate that is
[19:55:01] <Jymmm> pcw_home: next goes in the powdered sugar =)
[19:55:15] <pcw_home> how far away are you now?

[19:59:45] <Jymmm> pcw_home: I was going to mess with making gun powder a couple of weeks ago; had found all the materials locally
[20:01:09] <alex4nder> smokeless, or black?
[20:01:16] <Jymmm> black
[20:01:21] <alex4nder> nice
[20:01:56] <Jymmm> About the time I was getting to buy the materials my order of fuse arrived.
[20:01:57] <Helios> Don't modern bullets use HMX?
[20:02:02] <Helios> or RDX
[20:02:09] <alex4nder> no.
[20:03:01] <pfred1> I seen them try to make black powder on mythbusters it didn't work too well for them
[20:03:11] <pfred1> not nearly as well as the stuff you can buy in a can works
[20:03:42] <Jymmm> I was testing 1-3 inch pieces of slow burnign fuse. Even though I place a rock on it to hold in place, the shit shot off like a rocket across the yard.
[20:03:44] <pfred1> they sell black powder at my general store here
[20:04:05] <pfred1> you know for all the muzzle loader freaks
[20:04:06] <alex4nder> pfred1: you live pretty far away from a major population center?
[20:04:19] <Helios> couldn't you get done for terrorism if you're caught with gunpowder, wouldn't they try to say you were making a bomb?
[20:04:22] <pfred1> alex4nder there ain't a million people in this entire state
[20:04:27] <Jymmm> At that point, I just put all the fuse back in the sealed metal container and will wait another day till I have an area large enough to play around some more.
[20:04:33] <Helios> Pfred, where are you, Rhode Island?
[20:04:33] <pfred1> we only have one area code
[20:04:37] <pfred1> DE
[20:04:39] <alex4nder> ah
[20:04:46] <pfred1> the whole state is 302
[20:04:52] <alex4nder> Helios: people in the US reload their own ammunition.
[20:04:54] <pfred1> so we don't even bother with the area code
[20:04:56] <alex4nder> and owning ammo is legal.
[20:05:02] <alex4nder> so...
[20:05:08] <Jymmm> pcw_home: I know who sells it here too, I want to try making it from off the shelf conponents just to say I can.
[20:05:11] <Jymmm> or have
[20:05:12] <pfred1> we don't have any gun licensing
[20:05:23] <pfred1> just a permit for concealed carry
[20:05:26] <alex4nder> ah
[20:05:29] <pfred1> other than that whatever
[20:05:33] <alex4nder> so you're less free than alaska, but not by much.
[20:05:36] <Helios> There are more people living in Bristol than the whole of your state
[20:05:46] <pfred1> the NRA gives us a B+
[20:06:06] <pfred1> someone was just shooting across the street from me
[20:06:06] <alex4nder> I live in coast California. We're so free here than gun owners will not be tolerated.
[20:06:10] <alex4nder> WE'RE FREE GOD DAMN IT
[20:06:11] <pfred1> semi auto
[20:06:25] <alex4nder> +al
[20:06:26] <pfred1> they were popping off rounds pretty fast
[20:06:29] <Jymmm> alex4nder: lol
[20:06:44] <Helios> In Britain it is ILLEGAL to own any handgun. You need a SPECIAL LICENSE for a shotgun or a rifle, and you CAN ONLY use a machine gun if you're with a special police unit or the military or you are Prince Harry
[20:06:50] <pfred1> one new years eve I heard someone up the road fire off a full auto weapon
[20:06:58] <Jymmm> alex4nder: Just remember, that BLM is FEDERAL land =)
[20:07:24] <pfred1> yeah it was a machine gun of some kind
[20:07:25] <alex4nder> they bow to states rights on almost all matters. :(
[20:07:33] <alex4nder> I'm not even allowed to have standard capacity magazines
[20:07:33] <pfred1> which I'm not sure if they are legal here
[20:07:43] <Helios> Actually there is a loophole, you are allowed a handgun if it is over a hundred years old and you are a member of an antiques society
[20:07:53] <Jymmm> alex4nder: Sure you are, just pre-ban ones
[20:07:55] <Helios> You can also own a 100 year old water cooled vickers machinegun
[20:08:04] <Jymmm> alex4nder: and rebuilt ones
[20:08:11] <pfred1> this wasn't a Vickers too high a cycle rate
[20:08:24] <Jymmm> alex4nder: I'm in Calif too ya know
[20:08:26] <alex4nder> Jymmm: if I stick one of those in anything but a registered assault rifle, I've just commited a felony.
[20:08:27] <pfred1> sounded about 500-500 RPM
[20:08:31] <pfred1> 500-600
[20:08:40] <Helios> M16
[20:08:45] <pfred1> maybe
[20:08:45] <alex4nder> and I own no registered assault rifles.
[20:09:12] <Jymmm> alex4nder: Glock 17 with pre-ban 17rnd magazine is legal in Cal
[20:09:12] <alex4nder> (assuming we're talking center-fire)
[20:09:16] <Helios> And you wonder why the USA has over 10,000 gun deaths a year
[20:09:21] <alex4nder> Jymmm: that's not a rifle.
[20:09:32] <alex4nder> and it's pistol-grip loaded.
[20:09:38] <Helios> Mind you in the UK we have far more knife deaths
[20:09:39] <pfred1> Helios well would you rather we bludgeon each other to death?
[20:10:05] <Helios> I'd rather people would learn not to use violence. We have an outright handgun ban, even the police are not allowed them
[20:10:07] <pfred1> there was a guy up in Dover that cut down an intruder with a samuari sword
[20:10:09] <alex4nder> Jymmm: you own any registered assault rifles or 'off-list' weaponry?
[20:10:21] <pfred1> in his garage
[20:10:22] <cradek> we prefer to die from lack of health care
[20:10:29] <Helios> pfred this sort of thing does happen
[20:10:33] <alex4nder> cradek: after we bleed out from the bullet holes
[20:10:42] <pfred1> it was so weird it was big news
[20:10:53] <cradek> alex4nder: bonus
[20:10:56] <pfred1> if he'd have just shot the guy I'd have never heard about it
[20:11:09] <Jymmm> alex4nder: If I did or didn't, would you think I would say so on irc?
[20:11:19] <pfred1> but throwing stars are illegal here
[20:11:23] <Helios> Coronory heart disease is Britain's biggest killer
[20:11:31] <alex4nder> Jymmm: why is talking about legal ownership of property sketchy?
[20:11:36] <Jymmm> pfred1: throwing knices too?
[20:11:43] <Helios> Yeah we got them
[20:11:44] <pfred1> you can have any kind of gun but forget about them throwing stars!
[20:11:44] <Helios> They're allowed
[20:11:48] <pfred1> nah just stars
[20:11:53] <pfred1> knives are OK
[20:12:13] <pfred1> stupidest thing I ever heard of
[20:12:15] <Jymmm> alex4nder: plausible deniability
[20:12:16] <Helios> But carrying a knife in public gets you 3 years in jail
[20:12:21] <alex4nder> Jymmm: deniability of what?
[20:12:27] <Helios> Unless its in a locked box and you're walkign to the car and you're a chef
[20:12:34] <Jymmm> alex4nder: of whatever.
[20:12:37] <alex4nder> ok
[20:12:42] <pfred1> Helios we can open carry guns no permit no license
[20:12:53] <Helios> in the usa
[20:12:54] <Jymmm> pfred1: bastard
[20:13:01] <pfred1> just so long as you're over the age of 16
[20:13:10] <pfred1> under 16 you have to be with a guardian
[20:13:13] <Jymmm> pfred1: and that ONLY gets you a B+ ???
[20:13:14] <Helios> If I waved a BB gun around in the UK the helicopter and the armed response unit would come staight out
[20:13:26] <pfred1> well we have the permit for CC
[20:13:31] <Jymmm> ah
[20:13:40] <pfred1> and i think there is some laws about full auto
[20:13:46] <pfred1> not entirely sure but I think
[20:13:54] <Jymmm> pfred1: so who gets a A+ ?
[20:14:05] <pfred1> if you have no CC permit and allow full auto
[20:14:08] <alex4nder> alaska, montana,.
[20:14:14] <Helios> Arizona
[20:14:19] <Helios> NEvada certainly
[20:14:21] <alex4nder> montana doesn't even require federal interaction if the gun is built-in state of in-state parts
[20:14:28] <pfred1> there is some place down south that has the trifecta of gun nutishness
[20:14:37] <pfred1> it might be arkansas
[20:14:59] <Jymmm> so butt ass cold == A+ ?
[20:15:05] <pfred1> like you can own a machine gun with no license no problem!
[20:15:27] <pfred1> the NRA respects that
[20:15:30] <Helios> What's the point of all this gun madness, they kill people, they leave parents grieving over lost children, women weeping over lost husbands.
[20:15:46] <pfred1> look if everyone is heavily armed everyone thinks
[20:15:48] <alex4nder> pfred1: no state allows owning a machine gun without federal interaction, and thus a BATFE tax stamp
[20:15:56] <Helios> Personally I would be an advocate of a 1 world 0 bullet police
[20:15:58] <alex4nder> even montana hasn't challenged that.
[20:16:02] <Helios> policy
[20:16:08] <pfred1> they think if I let loose on someone everyone is going ti give it right back to me
[20:16:35] <pfred1> alex4nder well OK but some states out and out ban the things
[20:16:45] <pfred1> most in fact
[20:16:53] <pfred1> unless you're a gun dealer
[20:17:05] <alex4nder> yah, all of the blue states do
[20:17:19] <pfred1> we'rea blue state because of all the upstate liberals
[20:17:20] <alex4nder> I feel like the red states allow it to troll the blue states.

[20:36:52] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=070_1339871470
[20:37:06] <pfred1> people with more bigger guns?
[20:37:30] <r00t4rd3d> goto 4:00 lol
[20:38:12] <pfred1> protecting your rights is every individual's responsibility
[20:38:30] <Helios> Which is right, the right to kill or the right to live?
[20:39:01] <pfred1> you have to do what you have to do
[20:39:29] <pfred1> there's only two kinds of people in this world victims and victimizers
[20:39:42] <Helios> It doesn't have to be this way, we could just learn to get along
[20:39:57] <pfred1> this is the natural order of things
[20:40:28] <Helios> We only started praying upon ourselves once the human population grew above a certain size
[20:40:31] <pfred1> consience is only developed though cognitive affermation of consequences
[20:40:59] <pfred1> pfft people been breaking each other's heads open since the dawn of our species
[20:41:27] <Helios> I'd argue 14,000 years ago man had to get along or else it was a mammoth, tiger, lion, bear that smashed your head open not each other
[20:41:30] <pfred1> the only thing that stops it is knowing the tribe gonna break your head open if they catch you
[20:42:40] <pfred1> well there is the difference today there are a lot more people and less lions and tigers and bears to say oh my about
[20:43:44] <Helios> exactly, there are no other dangers to our species except ourselves
[20:44:04] <pfred1> well that isn't to say there aren't any dangers is it?
[20:44:16] <Helios> Governments want their weapons to enforce control by fear of death
[20:44:34] <pfred1> we've nothing but the threat of violence
[20:44:52] <Helios> Perhaps we could learn to do without it
[20:45:12] <pfred1> perhaps we've a number of obstacles to overcome before that day arrives though
[20:45:29] <Helios> The largest obstacle is the human mind, I ask you to lay down your weapon you say no
[20:45:34] <pfred1> until then keep your aim sharp and your powder dry
[20:45:45] <Helios> One you can get passed that barrier to every gun wielder worldwide we can have world peace
[20:46:01] <Helios> I'm in Britain, I would be locked away for many years if I possessed a gun
[20:46:06] <pfred1> no I'd say the biggest obstacle we face is population expansion and resource depletion
[20:46:36] <pfred1> the pie ain't getting any bigger but there are many more that want a piece of it
[20:46:45] <Helios> Theoretically Earth could sustain 9 trillion if perfectly optimized
[20:46:54] <pfred1> no way
[20:47:02] <Helios> You want my math?
[20:47:10] <pfred1> at 12 billion we're going to feel the pinch
[20:47:17] <r00t4rd3d> mount attempt #2
[20:47:34] <pfred1> everyone will suffer from a degradation of quality of life
[20:47:50] <pfred1> no one will be immune
[20:47:53] <Helios> Earths total land mass is: 148,940,000 km"2 land (29.2 %). 1 km"2 = 1,000,000 m^2. This is a total of 148,940,000,000,000 m^2. If the entire land mass of Earth cound be 100% optimized and everyone had their own 4m^2 share of the land of Earth the absolute maximum population capacity therefore would be 37.235 trillion people assuming nobody lives above or below anyone or anyone lives on water.
[20:47:53] <Helios> When people say "oh the world is overpopulated, we need to kill off large numbers of people so our species can survive" they are lying through their teeth.
[20:47:54] <Helios> Assume 2800 tonnes of wheat can be grown per km^2 per year.This is 9,492,000,000 calories per km^2 per year. Were the Earth growing this to 100% maximum capacity on every square meter on the land and all the people were co-existing with the farms, i.e. growing it on roofs, the Earth could produce 1,413,738,480,000,000,000 calories annually. Assuming each person eats a rationed 2000 calories
[20:47:54] <Helios> per day and there are 365.25 days per year there are theoretically enough calories for 1,935,302,505,133 people to live on Earth without starving assuming they eat no fish. Nearly 2 trillion.
[20:48:13] <r00t4rd3d> pfred1, did you run your tb6560 at full power?
[20:48:21] <Helios> If every square meter of sea land could be utilized, 9 trillion
[20:48:34] <pfred1> r00t4rd3d I never went past 24V the limit of my present power supply
[20:48:50] <pfred1> heck we've already fished out the oceans
[20:49:15] <pfred1> we net about 10% of what we did just 50 years ago
[20:49:40] <pfred1> not because we net less but because there are just that much less fish to net
[20:49:45] <r00t4rd3d> i have a 24v supply too but have my tb6560 set to 75% power settings
[20:49:57] <pfred1> I run 100%
[20:50:11] <pfred1> full decay mode too
[20:50:22] <r00t4rd3d> what about the dec
[20:50:45] <pfred1> but I picked my current limiting resistors for the motors i run
[20:50:56] <r00t4rd3d> my motors are 1.8 step angle but if i set it to 1/8 its slow as death
[20:50:59] <pfred1> which is how you're supposed to set the current limit
[20:51:21] <pfred1> no your microstepping has nothng to do with your motor angle
[20:51:31] <r00t4rd3d> lol oh
[20:51:40] <pfred1> well it does for how much you move
[20:51:46] <pfred1> but you can pick any combination
[20:52:03] <r00t4rd3d> im at 1/2 right now and it works
[20:52:15] <pfred1> yeah 1/2 works
[20:52:20] <pfred1> full is kind of funny
[20:52:21] <r00t4rd3d> what do you use?
[20:52:27] <pfred1> I use 1/4
[20:52:38] <r00t4rd3d> i dont have a 1/4 setting
[20:52:55] <r00t4rd3d> 1 1/2 1/8 1/16
[20:53:29] <r00t4rd3d> i dont have any resistors on my motors
[20:53:39] <r00t4rd3d> should i?
[20:53:53] <pfred1> TB6560 uses current sensing resistors to set your current limit
[20:54:02] <pfred1> every IC has one per phase
[20:54:18] <pfred1> for a total of 2 resistors per motor
[20:54:29] <pfred1> on your board they're probably light blue
[20:54:45] <pfred1> all the chinese boards I've seen havel ight blue current sensing resistors
[20:54:50] <r00t4rd3d> you said you picked your resistors for the motors you run
[20:54:54] <pfred1> yes
[20:55:42] <r00t4rd3d> did you change them or get the tb6560 cause it has what you wanted?
[20:55:57] <pfred1> there is a formula to calculate what resistance yields what current at your reference voltage
[20:56:09] <pfred1> I made my own drivers from scratch
[20:56:14] <r00t4rd3d> why are you picking resistors if they are onboard?
[20:56:25] <pfred1> because i made my own boards
[20:56:29] <r00t4rd3d> oh!
[20:56:35] <r00t4rd3d> you left that part out
[20:56:47] <r00t4rd3d> i was like wtf is he talking about
[20:57:08] <pfred1> http://www.instructables.com/id/TB6560-Microstepping-Bipolar-Chopper-Stepper-Motor/
[20:57:18] <r00t4rd3d> you just used the tb6560 chips not the whole chinaman special board
[20:57:20] <pfred1> those are my drivers I made
[20:58:31] <pfred1> I made my boards before the chainamen made theirs
[20:58:52] <pfred1> today if i had it to do all over I'd buy their boards :)
[20:59:06] <r00t4rd3d> cant beat 46 bucks
[20:59:35] <pfred1> but there are areas you can improve them
[21:00:01] <r00t4rd3d> i just ordered a case for mine
[21:00:16] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.ebay.com/itm/160510486344?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

[21:02:36] <pfred1> I'ge gotten it to run as high as 1.5 IPS

[21:03:36] <pfred1> the magic if Ty-Wraps
[21:03:41] <pfred1> the magic of Ty-Wraps
[21:06:14] <pfred1> r00t4rd3d judging by your X axis linear guids I can only assume you've never seen this design http://cr4.globalspec.com/PostImages/200902/IMG_3795_715B08D9-CBFE-66F3-F01EF2DAB26920C2.jpg
[21:07:00] <r00t4rd3d> i did but i like to spend money instead of DIY
[21:07:08] <pfred1> K
[21:07:33] <pfred1> I came up with something even cheesier for my Z axis
[21:07:35] <r00t4rd3d> they are not that much either
[21:07:42] <pfred1> it doesn't use bearings at all
[21:07:50] <pfred1> but melamine bearing surfaces
[21:08:09] <pfred1> which i bought at a thrift shop for 50 cents a shelf
[21:08:13] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.cncrouterparts.com/linear-carriage-with-abec-7-bearings-p-33.html?cPath=21
[21:08:19] <r00t4rd3d> 23 bucks a pieve
[21:08:21] <r00t4rd3d> piece
[21:08:39] <pfred1> wow that is quite a chunk of aluminum
[21:08:45] <r00t4rd3d> i paid 30 for the rails from a local guy, drilled mounting holes included
[21:09:03] <pfred1> the bar stock?
[21:09:05] <r00t4rd3d> ya
[21:09:10] <pfred1> is it cold rolled steel?
[21:09:15] <r00t4rd3d> aluminum
[21:09:17] <pfred1> oh
[21:09:24] <pfred1> hmmm
[21:09:37] <pfred1> aluminum sometimes can have rolled edges
[21:09:47] <r00t4rd3d> dont matter
[21:09:53] <pfred1> I think CRS is a bit more accurate
[21:10:18] <elmo40> more accurate then Al?
[21:10:25] <pfred1> yeah I'm using particle board stuff is on the money as far as I'm concerned :)
[21:10:28] <elmo40> I doubt that
[21:10:39] <r00t4rd3d> i used MDF too
[21:10:40] <pfred1> yes CRS is more accurate than AL
[21:11:04] <r00t4rd3d> one more smoke then i need to go make a router mount
[21:11:13] <r00t4rd3d> i went and got the hole saw that i needed
[21:11:22] <r00t4rd3d> 45 bucks w/ the arbor
[21:11:22] <pfred1> AL is funny in that it can wear and wear stuff at the same time
[21:11:36] <pfred1> sand paper is aluminum oxide
[21:12:18] <pfred1> so the surface of your aluminum is always aluminum oxide but the AL under it is soft
[21:12:53] <pfred1> when I made my table saw rip fence i used AL because it slides a lot poorer than steel on steel
[21:13:40] <pfred1> I wanted the fence to positively lock
[21:13:52] <pfred1> steel on steel it kept slipping on me
[21:14:03] <pfred1> threw in some aluminum flashing it locked right up :)
[21:15:43] <Tom_itx> Jymmm keep your fuse dry in your kitchen oven
[21:16:05] <Tom_itx> we were discussing alternate kitchen uses a while ago
[21:16:34] <JT-Shop> best to set the oven to clean cycle then go to the store... when you get back your fuse will be really dry
[21:17:08] * Tom_itx bets JT-Shop is a pro at such things
[21:17:21] <JT-Shop> never tried it
[21:17:34] <JT-Shop> but I'll hold your beer while you try it
[21:17:46] <Tom_itx> naw you never wanna set a beer down
[21:18:27] <Tom_itx> i could go ahead and cut my heat sink down a bit i suppose. the box should be here monday
[21:19:26] <pfred1> I'm like Scrooge when I run my fingers though my heatsink stash
[21:19:32] * JT-Shop thinks about taking a nap
[21:19:37] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: That is the stupiedest idea I've heard yet. I just hang the whole roll of fuse above the camp fire to keep it dry.
[21:19:49] <Tom_itx> ahh even better
[21:20:23] <Tom_itx> driving on 680 while on irc is right up there too :)
[21:21:11] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: And in the rainy seaosn, the top of the 55gal fuel drums hold it perfectly, so just point a 100K BUT heater at it and dry as can be in 30m or less
[21:21:17] <JT-Shop> oh no, I have 3,333 posts

[23:02:39] <Jymmm> for a portable all in on computer system

[23:03:26] <pfred1> what do I look like a door to door salesman to you?
[23:04:06] <Jymmm> pfred1: Then I have the perfect thing for you, and I'm selling it too...

[23:07:52] <pfred1> locate axis.py
[23:08:16] <Jymmm> sudo updatedb; locate axis.py
[23:08:35] <Jymmm> http://i51.tinypic.com/2n9i8hg.jpg
[23:08:36] <pfred1> I'm assuming they've had their system running more than a day

[23:09:23] <pfred1> its andy they've been here
[23:10:03] <Jymmm> What I said still stands on it's own merits.
[23:10:16] <Jymmm> user has nothing to do with that.
[23:10:52] <pfred1> well there's always find / -name "*axis*" | grep py
[23:10:58] <andypugh> But yes, I did updatedb and locate axis.py
[23:11:48] <pfred1> that should turn up anything even remotely resembling it

[23:14:43] <Jymmm> sorry to hear that
[23:14:52] <pfred1> you have to destick the HDD with a pencil eraser though
[23:15:05] <Jymmm> those are HUGE as is the PS in them

[23:16:08] <pfred1> it doesn't even have an HDD
[23:16:10] <Jymmm> the 486 has 3.5 and a 5.25 in it
[23:16:23] <pfred1> all this thing has is FDDs
[23:16:23] <Jymmm> hdd too and 8mb ram =)
[23:16:33] <Jymmm> dual 5.25 I hope =)

[23:17:54] <Jymmm> I found the invoice of a 486 I bought many moons ago with a trident 8900.... $1100 lol
[23:18:35] <Jymmm> maybe a Pentium
[23:19:06] <Jymmm> andypugh: The problem with keeping it is storage space
[23:19:39] <pfred1> yeah I've chop shopped 2 mini computers
[23:19:52] <pfred1> I can't store those
[23:20:02] <Jymmm> It would be PERFECT for a portable CNC setup using a standard mobo, but with the MiniITX boards that you can mount on the bac of LCD's, kinda not necessary anymore
[23:20:05] <pfred1> one was a desk built in
[23:20:17] <pfred1> the desk was the computer
[23:20:34] <pfred1> it was an NEC

[23:25:12] <pfred1> I need some new network switches
[23:25:16] <Jymmm> toss in there a UPS too
[23:25:58] <pfred1> since a lineman that works for my power ocmpany moved in down my street my power has gotten a lot better
[23:26:14] <pfred1> I call him my favorite neighbor
[23:27:11] <pfred1> he brings his truck home and parks it in his yard so if there is a problem he is close by
[23:27:41] <Jymmm> andypugh: It's not really an "antique" (per-se) as it's still sold I believe http://www.trans2000.com/n9drawing.htm
[23:28:43] <Jymmm> thought the one I have is a much older version

[23:35:35] <Jymmm> And I have the rolling cart for it too http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wheeled-Rolling-Equipment-Case-BSI-FieldGo-Prism-N9-Portable-Lunchbox-Computer-/280873117428?pt=US_Laptop_Cases_Bags&hash=item416557a6f4
[23:38:13] <pfred1> I got to use an oscilloscope that had its own rolling cart once it was really nice
[23:38:30] <pfred1> a $20,000 Hitachi I believe it was
[23:38:47] <Jymmm> Now they have em the size of a loaf of bread =)
[23:39:00] <pfred1> not that nice they don't
[23:39:32] <Jymmm> they do, just more than $20K
[23:39:59] <pfred1> adjusted for inflation that money would be more like $50,000 today
[23:40:02] <alex4nder> ok
[23:40:30] <andypugh> Jymmm: Does locate manage to find axis.py for you?
[23:40:37] <alex4nder> the jb weld patch on my table is flat within +/- ~0.0002 relative to the rest of the table
[23:40:52] <pfred1> andypugh use find
[23:40:57] <Jymmm> andypugh: im on a mac atm
[23:41:26] <pfred1> andypugh find / -name "*axis*" | grep py
[23:41:39] <pfred1> that'll dig up anything even remotely resembling the file
[23:41:40] <andypugh> That seems to hang...
[23:41:51] <pfred1> it reads your whole system
[23:42:02] <pfred1> so it will take some time
[23:42:26] <pfred1> I mean if you've some idea where it is search say /usr or home
[23:42:40] <andypugh> But I don't have any idea...
[23:42:43] <pfred1> which will happen a lot faster
[23:43:05] <pfred1> then you just have to be patient
[23:44:54] <andypugh> I am being patient
[23:45:01] <pfred1> find is funny with wildcards you need the quotes for it to work
[23:45:35] <pfred1> it is case sensitive too
[23:45:59] <pfred1> you can do this find / -name "*" | grep -i axis
[23:46:04] <pfred1> that is case insensitive
[23:46:33] <pfred1> it'll spit out anything with axis AXIS Axis etc. in it
[23:46:59] <pfred1> but you'll get buried by false hits
[23:47:05] <andypugh> I am still being patient with the first version
[23:47:31] <pfred1> how big an HDD do you have and do you have any other drives mounted?
[23:47:38] <pfred1> it'll even search network shares
[23:47:46] <pfred1> anything mouted under /
[23:48:06] <pfred1> net shares do take a while to scour
[23:48:20] <pfred1> and you probably don't want to look there anyways
[23:48:34] <andypugh> 20GB HD
[23:48:53] <pfred1> that shouldn't take long
[23:49:45] <andypugh> No, that is why I thought something seemed to be wrong.
[23:49:56] <pfred1> yeah command is right something is up
[23:49:59] <andypugh> (still not finished, or doing anything)
[23:50:17] <pfred1> ctrl+c it beats me I've used commands similar for a long time works here
[23:50:38] <pfred1> try to just search /usr and /home
[23:50:43] -!- jstenback has quit [*.net *.split]
[23:50:50] <pfred1> maybe yo uran out of memory or something?
[23:51:12] <pfred1> linux can break if you run out of memory

[23:53:16] <pfred1> find does seem to cache a lot when it runs
[23:53:37] <pfred1> like if i do a find command then run another find right after it the second one runs really fast
[23:53:52] <pfred1> so it is caching
