[00:00:13] <andypugh> It exists in a RIP system
[00:00:30] <JT-Shop> yea, just looking at the git tree and I see it
[00:01:05] <pfred1> find / -name "*" | grep -i axis would spit out every file in the /usr/share/axis directory just because the word axis is there
[00:01:29] <pfred1> so it is a terrible search
[00:01:43] <pfred1> you can pipe it to another grep though
[00:02:23] <pfred1> like this is legal find / -name "*" | grep -i axis | grep py
[00:02:41] <andypugh> Maybe the file doesn't exist on an installed system? Is that possible?
[00:02:48] <pfred1> then you'd see every python file in the axis directory though
[00:02:59] <Tom_itx> Jymmm i could stuff an atom in that box
[00:03:39] <Tom_itx> andypugh how do you like that new generation atom board so far?
[00:03:45] <JT-Shop> andypugh: it is in usr/bin
[00:04:12] <andypugh> Tom_itx: it seems good. The only drawback is the lack of PCI slot
[00:04:13] <pfred1> oh man you could have just issued which axis.py
[00:04:29] <JT-Shop> but it does not have the .py extension
[00:04:33] <JT-Shop> just axis
[00:04:34] <alex4nder> andypugh: axis.py becomes axis
[00:04:37] <pfred1> you can use which to show yo uwhich command you are executing
[00:04:57] <andypugh> Oh. Bother!
[00:04:58] <pfred1> which searches your path
[00:05:03] <Tom_itx> andypugh are you gonna try the pcie card for it?
[00:05:19] <andypugh> Tom_itx: I have a 6i25 in it now.
[00:05:19] <pfred1> but it is handier than it sounds
[00:05:39] <pfred1> like if you have multiple versions of a program installed
[00:06:39] <pfred1> alex4nder with a shell script?
[00:07:17] <pfred1> like is there an executable shell script called axis that calls axis.py?
[00:07:53] <pfred1> then yes you would just issue the command which axis
[00:08:13] <pfred1> then you could do this file `which axis`
[00:08:26] <pfred1> which would tell you it was a shell script
[00:08:35] <andypugh> No, axis is a #! /usr/bin/python executable.
[00:08:41] <pfred1> then cat `which axis` which would display it
[00:09:03] <pfred1> still a shell script but it just uses python
[00:09:56] <alex4nder> pfred1: it gets processed as part of emc/usr_intf/axis/Submakefile.. the #! gets fixed up, and then it's copied in place
[00:10:19] <pfred1> #! is a shell script bang
[00:10:23] -!- RussianKid [RussianKid!~sasha@94-192-14-199.zone6.bethere.co.uk] has parted #linuxcnc
[00:10:30] <alex4nder> #! is a kernel command. ;)
[00:10:41] <pfred1> yeah but all shell scripts start with it
[00:11:12] <alex4nder> it's got nothing to do with the shell.. it tells whoever is responsible for starting it, who is repsonsible for interpreting it
[00:11:22] <alex4nder> shell scripts use that facility to run
[00:11:28] <pfred1> yes
[00:11:29] <alex4nder> but you could do that with any interpreter

[00:12:17] <pfred1> which is why I call them al lshell scripts whether it is right or not it still aids me in how I think about it
[00:12:36] <pfred1> I guess technically it is a python script
[00:12:46] <alex4nder> yes, technically it is not a shell script, unless python is your shell. ;)
[00:12:59] <pfred1> well when you run that python is your shell
[00:13:16] <alex4nder> not really
[00:13:28] <alex4nder> but whatever, andypugh got what he needed.

[00:16:12] <pfred1> it has to be the simplest man page I've ever seen I never knew which had a switch

[01:02:35] <JT-Shop> say goodnight Gracie
[01:09:19] <Tom_itx> aww but it's the weekend!
[01:10:45] <Tom_itx> looks good JT-Shop

[01:45:27] <pfred1> this is my clamp http://i.imgur.com/dHlY6.jpg
[01:45:39] <pfred1> it was hard to drill that hole
[01:45:49] <pfred1> really really hard
[01:47:11] <pfred1> another picture of it http://i.imgur.com/zWNB9.jpg
[01:47:39] <r00t4rd3d> i went and spent 40 bucks on a hole saw
[01:47:58] <pfred1> it'd have still been hard it was periphery speed in the material
[01:48:11] <pfred1> my mill only goes down to 80 RPM?
[01:48:14] -!- Thetawaves [Thetawaves!~Thetawave@7-139-42-72.gci.net] has joined #linuxcnc
[01:48:28] <pfred1> so I was burning the steel of the bit
[01:48:39] <pfred1> couldn't use water lube
[01:49:04] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.ebay.com/itm/170849511325?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649
[01:49:04] <pfred1> phenolic is just hard to work with sometimes
[01:49:12] <r00t4rd3d> who ever posted that link thanks, i ordered :)
[01:49:47] <pfred1> now whenever I machine phenolic i air cool it it makes a mess but I'm burning up less bits
[01:50:35] <pfred1> but I hadn't worked the stuff so much when I drilled that hole so I hadn't come around to air cooling it then
[01:50:42] <darthrake> hey, is there anybody with linuxcnc python module experience?
[01:52:10] -!- Helios has quit []
[02:04:14] <Thetawaves> i like phenolic as a material
[02:04:22] <Thetawaves> very heat resistant
[02:04:45] <Thetawaves> i have heard it is kind of toxic, as in people become allergic over time
[02:06:11] <r00t4rd3d> just dont lick it
[02:06:16] <r00t4rd3d> youll be fine
[02:06:49] <r00t4rd3d> or breath the dust from it or put the shavings on your salad
[02:13:05] <Jymmm> I have some 1/8" phenolic, there really isn't any shavings to speak of
[02:13:42] <Jymmm> It will dull carbon tooling faster than hell though
[02:14:55] <Jymmm> it took forever cutting in on a table saw, and reeked too, outside no less.
[02:15:09] -!- syyl_ has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[02:18:20] <pfred1> it does stink to the high heavens when it starts to burn
[02:18:55] <Jymmm> I took a map gas torch to it, never really burns, just smolders.
[02:19:05] <pfred1> yeah it blackens
[02:19:13] <Jymmm> that it did =)
[02:19:18] <pfred1> I've had it smoke
[02:19:35] <Jymmm> it did a bit, but I was outside too
[02:20:01] <Jymmm> I was also being conservative with it, as it was the only piece I had.
[02:20:11] <pfred1> I have a couple nice chunks of it
[02:20:52] <Jymmm> It's just too expensive to use on just anything =)
[02:21:15] <pfred1> yes it is expensive if you have to buy it
[02:21:30] <pfred1> but i have a couple of nice chunks of it
[02:21:42] <r00t4rd3d> http://youtu.be/MShbP3OpASA?t=49m45s
[02:21:44] <r00t4rd3d> awesome
[02:21:48] <pfred1> one buddy of mine had the coolest stuff
[02:21:51] <Jymmm> I buy my polymers from a wholesale house, so I just asked one of the warehouse guys for a sample =)
[02:22:13] <pfred1> he had a sheet of the plastic they make gun handles out of
[02:22:29] <pfred1> he knew the guy who made the stuff
[02:22:38] <Jymmm> cool
[02:22:39] <pfred1> like a 4x8 sheet
[02:24:05] <Tom_itx> Jymmm what was your interest in century?
[02:24:11] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: I dont' care for your cnc router design, but I can't put my finger on it. I do have an idea for a inexpensive one, but startup costs would be around (I'm guessing) $50,000 USD.
[02:24:24] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: Have them make something for me.
[02:24:36] <pfred1> it'd be impossible to expect the rods to be aligned
[02:25:41] <Jymmm> pfred1: I dont think that was it, at least nto for me.
[02:26:00] <pfred1> well that is why it'd never work
[02:26:11] <Jymmm> ?
[02:26:27] <pfred1> I'm not into that whole overhead gantry design although that does work after a fashion
[02:26:49] <pfred1> you'd never get those bars just aligned
[02:27:00] <pfred1> there is no allowence for adjustment
[02:27:14] <Jymmm> Oh, no. I'm talking somethign more basic flaw(s)
[02:27:18] <pfred1> in practice it'd never happen
[02:27:27] <Jymmm> way before straightness
[02:28:45] <Jymmm> pfred1: See, I like to follow a KISS method of things. and this just has too many pieces in not the right way/layout/configuration - more or less it jsut doens't give me that warm fuzzy feeling.
[02:29:05] <Jymmm> pfred1: And I've learned to trust my gut instincts.
[02:29:21] <pfred1> well to think that all those supports would be in the right places is asking for a lot
[02:29:52] <pfred1> I'm not saying it is impossible but it is extremely improbable
[02:30:06] <Jymmm> where does the X leadscrew go?
[02:30:26] <Jymmm> how does it connect to the gantry?
[02:30:36] <pfred1> those usually drive under the table if you don't run them side by side
[02:30:57] <pfred1> not any other places I think you can put them
[02:31:00] <Jymmm> Sure, but where in the drawing?
[02:31:07] <pfred1> they're not depicted
[02:31:19] <Jymmm> but there's no plae for them either
[02:31:21] <Jymmm> place
[02:31:30] <pfred1> a drawing does not have to have every single part in order to be correct
[02:31:54] <pfred1> many drawings are in fact a single part of a multipart mechanism
[02:32:04] <Jymmm> there's still no place for them though.
[02:33:17] <Jymmm> not that I can see anyway
[02:36:38] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: BTW, that $50K is mostly in tooling, and could yield 100 routers initially. After that probably around $5000 per 100, or $50/each at cost.
[02:37:10] <pfred1> MDF is cheap
[02:37:35] <Jymmm> and you still have to fabricate it
[02:38:04] <Tom_itx> they were put on the outside
[02:38:28] <Jymmm> What I'm talking about is pre-fabed ready to be assembled.
[02:38:31] <Tom_itx> taken from an exhisting desigh
[02:38:42] <Jymmm> Sold in IKEA! (kidding)

[03:53:43] <r00t4rd3d> one screw on the carb is half way out lol
[03:54:38] <r00t4rd3d> its for a friend, i think iam going to restore the whole thing
[03:54:57] <r00t4rd3d> 87 Yamaha Moto4 350
[03:59:35] <r00t4rd3d> The Moto4 is what lead to the current line of atvs, one of the first ones made.
[04:00:34] <r00t4rd3d> or the first model made i guess
[04:03:05] <mrsun> Jymmm, ever looked at the iscar logo upside down ?
[04:03:29] <mrsun> http://helixtools.co.uk/images/logo_iscar.gif

[07:04:45] <Jymmm> Ok, I need to reel string (without using spools). So, I initially (one time) thread the line on a winder, wind a designated length, (heres the trick part) prepare the NEXT start the next winding, cut, remove the wound string, begin winding the next reel, repeat.
[07:05:00] <Jymmm> How do I do the tricky part?

[07:14:33] <mrsun> maybe have asked before but dont remember :P
[07:16:02] <Loetmichel> grinding it "in situ"
[07:16:55] <mrsun> hmm, but do not have grinding tools that can reach that deep :P
[07:17:24] <mrsun> just using the wtf is it called, the slide highest up :P
[07:17:25] <mrsun> ?
[07:17:53] <mrsun> using a sine bar to set the taper also i guess, or a morse taper to check the angle against

[12:52:32] <mrsun> ALOT of mdf ... even tho i used vacuum cleaner :P
[12:52:38] <syyl> i hate wood on the lathe...
[12:52:51] <syyl> on the milling machine you can get rid of the dust easy
[12:52:54] <syyl> but on the lathe...
[12:53:00] <mrsun> yeah ... but sometimes you have no choice :/
[12:53:05] <syyl> right :(
[12:53:14] <mrsun> or i did have a choice ... to be outside in the rain with the wood lathe :P
[12:53:21] <andypugh> archivist: Have you ever worked out the Holtzapfel threads? As far as I can figure out the pitches are not integer in pitch or TPI, and might be chosen purely on convenient changewheels.
[12:53:21] <mrsun> (yes the wood lathe is outside getting destroyed) :P
[12:53:32] <syyl> :(
[12:53:54] <mrsun> still runs tho ... impressivly with an open motor and everything, been standing outside for a good 3 years or so :P

[14:38:55] <tjb1> Not good...
[14:39:15] <tjb1> Did it change yet?
[14:39:19] <JT-Shop> if I mess with the plug a bit it goes red
[14:39:32] <tjb1> Make it red/orange
[14:39:42] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: Look inside the jack, see if there is any debre
[14:40:39] <JT-Shop> clean
[14:40:51] <tjb1> Green means full/not-charging
[14:40:56] <Jymmm> well, let the battery charge for 30m and see what happens
[14:41:09] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: did you remove the battery ?
[14:43:09] <JT-Shop> yep and put it back
[14:43:17] <Jymmm> k
[14:43:28] <JT-Shop> it turned red/orange on it's own
[14:43:38] <JT-Shop> so it is charging now?
[14:44:20] <tjb1> yeah
[14:44:35] <tjb1> Mine is never red/orange as soon as I plug it in
[14:44:40] <JT-Shop> ok, I'll let it charge while I weld up the trailer
[14:44:49] <Tom_itx> JT-Shop, alignment could be an issue
[14:44:53] -!- gfixler has quit [Quit: Ex-Chat]
[14:44:59] <Tom_itx> especially with MDF
[14:45:10] <JT-Shop> yea, I am a bit misaligned some times
[14:45:23] <Tom_itx> booze will cure that
[14:45:39] <JT-Shop> I've tried but I fall asleep first
[14:45:49] <JT-Shop> alignment in what plane?
[14:46:04] <Tom_itx> any
[14:46:16] <Tom_itx> ever tried to glue a chair together?
[14:46:32] <JT-Shop> no
[14:46:50] <JT-Shop> I'm not following your thoughts
[14:47:03] <Tom_itx> well it's hard to get things aligned just right
[14:47:24] <Tom_itx> in the chair example using a strap clamp
[14:47:57] <Tom_itx> and on those parallel bars it wouldn't take much misalignment to make it bind
[14:48:07] <Tom_itx> partial reason for the spring idea
[14:48:08] <JT-Shop> all the verticals will be doweled to each other and the long parts doweled to the base and held together with barrel nuts and bindig screws
[14:48:26] <JT-Shop> binding screws
[14:49:06] <Tom_itx> and also alignment in Y for parallelism
[14:49:15] <JT-Shop> I could imagine the problems with the chair and a strap clamp
[14:49:18] <Tom_itx> with the other set of X bars
[14:49:34] <JT-Shop> alignment will be fixed by the dowels
[14:49:37] <Tom_itx> we're only talking thousands
[14:49:40] <Tom_itx> ths
[14:50:09] <Tom_itx> it's worth a prototype shot
[14:50:33] <JT-Shop> yea in that case I assume it will be out of alignment a few thousands for sure as it is wood
[14:50:45] <Tom_itx> i'm always looking forward to a more rigid machine since i know what's out there
[14:50:47] <JT-Shop> but for a router how close do you need to be for most stuff
[14:51:03] <syyl_ws> 1/10mm is always ok
[14:51:10] <syyl_ws> for most router work
[14:51:18] <JT-Shop> I would thing you have to move up to a metal machine to get more rigid than that
[14:51:43] <Tom_itx> i considered the same design in aluminum
[14:51:48] <Tom_itx> 3/4" or so
[14:51:51] <Tom_itx> maybe 1"
[14:52:23] <JT-Shop> that would be as close as you can get to linear rails like the ones that mount on top of support rails
[14:52:35] <Tom_itx> yeah
[14:52:51] <tjb1> Any thoughts on this theme? http://bennett-built.com/
[14:52:53] <JT-Shop> that is also the reason I'm not making a huge one first lol
[14:52:59] <Tom_itx> made me sad when i was at the salvage and found a nice linear rail stuck in the mud in their drive
[14:53:19] <JT-Shop> tjb1: kinda dark for me
[14:53:52] <JT-Shop> I have a few nice linear rails laying about but I've not decided what to do with them
[14:53:52] <tjb1> check again, any thoughts on that one MINUS the stupid background
[14:54:10] <Tom_itx> i could give you a hint :)
[14:54:41] <Tom_itx> wordpress is vulnerable
[14:55:01] <tjb1> Already been told.
[14:55:03] <JT-Shop> oh we were supposed to click on the hello world
[14:55:20] <Tom_itx> it took down not only a friend's site but the whole server
[14:55:34] <JT-Shop> the background is ok the banner with the HOME in it is too busy for me and distracts my attention
[14:55:37] <tjb1> My site doesnt get much if any traffic
[14:56:04] <Tom_itx> you got traffic counters on it?
[14:56:10] <JT-Shop> I thought the same thing and withing hours of having wordpress up the spammers started flooding in
[14:56:23] <JT-Shop> shut that crap down in a flash

[15:20:17] <YAGO> I was sent here by Sammel lothar. I understand that he has modified the current Linuxcnc main branch source code (I believe the version is 2.6) so as to have a better UI for foam cutting
[15:20:22] <YAGO> He has sent me a patch, I suppose I should git the source, apply the patch and recompile.
[15:20:26] <YAGO> Right ?
[15:20:52] <SWPadnos> sounds like a good plan

[17:51:00] <IchGuckLive> are we talking on 2mm thick or thinner
[17:51:13] <Jymmm> thinner
[17:51:21] <James_Cole> does anyone know a way of making axis report the deviation before/after homing; in case of lost steps?
[17:51:22] <IchGuckLive> some numbers
[17:51:33] <Jymmm> hacksaw blade
[17:52:03] <Jymmm> I dont know numbers, can't find my calipers =)
[17:52:08] <Jymmm> saw 1mm
[17:52:10] <Jymmm> say
[17:52:24] <Jymmm> or 1.5mm
[17:52:34] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: you can count your steps with a encoder and linuxcnc tels you if you are wright or stops emidetly
[17:53:00] <Jymmm> IchGuckLive: right, not wright. =)
[17:53:22] <James_Cole> thanks, but sorry, i don't understand
[17:53:38] <IchGuckLive> Jymmm: in Germany you can get Böhler Regulit K on 40-80mm 1mm thick 500mm long
[17:54:13] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: the mashine Motor needs to be talkiing to the controler
[17:54:17] <pcw_home> I guess you could use the tri-state comp to sample the step count until home is hit
[17:55:53] <James_Cole> if i have completed a milling job and i home all axes, is there no direct way to report "old home VS new home"?
[17:56:24] <IchGuckLive> there is a EMC.bak
[17:56:34] <IchGuckLive> this holds the old
[17:57:10] <cpresser> IchGuckLive: that was not the questions.
[17:57:19] <cpresser> assume you lost 10 steps on the x-axis.
[17:57:38] <IchGuckLive> you can make yourself a pyvcp button that collects the numbers
[17:57:59] <IchGuckLive> after the job colect another tome and see if it is diferent
[17:57:59] <James_Cole> yeah, that sounds like it
[17:58:01] <cpresser> as soon as you home again, emc2 could tell you 'i expected to arrive there in 10000steps, but it took me 10010 steps to hit the home switch'
[17:58:38] <James_Cole> "could" or "can"?
[17:59:03] <cpresser> i dont know how to do that. but i cam quite sure its not that hard to implement :)
[17:59:12] <cpresser> ~s/cam/can/
[17:59:23] <cpresser> ~s/cam/am/
[17:59:35] <Jymmm> spam/can/I/Am
[17:59:52] <James_Cole> i think so, but i don't know if it is possible with pyvcp or similar, or if it needs to be implemented into emc2
[18:00:13] <pcw_home> Its doable in Hal
[18:00:19] <cpresser> i think it can be done in hal
[18:01:07] <pcw_home> Probably needs the last home phase slow enough so you dont miss stepgen counts
[18:01:24] <James_Cole> yes
[18:01:37] <James_Cole> can you give me a hint where to start?
[18:01:50] <IchGuckLive> Hal_manual
[18:03:02] <James_Cole> can this (assumed) hal sequence then be integrated into axis?
[18:03:09] <James_Cole> via pyvcp?
[18:03:28] <cpresser> take a look at the different pins in hal. "motion..." and "stepgen..." while homing
[18:03:39] <pcw_home> sure it would end up as a HAL pin
[18:03:52] <JT-Shop> James_Cole: are you concerned that you are loosing steps?
[18:03:57] <James_Cole> yes, i am
[18:04:28] <JT-Shop> have you done any testing to see if you are losing steps?
[18:04:58] <cpresser> thats what he is aming for with this setup!?
[18:05:08] <James_Cole> thank you :-)
[18:05:14] <JT-Shop> http://linuxcnc.org/docview/html/common/Stepper_Diagnostics.html#_testing
[18:05:55] <JT-Shop> once you extablish that your settings are correct and you won't lose any steps there should be no worries unless you run your machine too close to the edge
[18:06:29] <James_Cole> well, sure, but i'd like to use the homing switches for testing
[18:06:32] <JT-Shop> in that case just mount a test indicator and check the actual postion to the test indicator

[18:06:53] <cpresser> on of the questions is also 'where is close to the edge' of you machine
[18:07:06] <James_Cole> that's what i'm trying to find out
[18:07:35] <JT-Shop> much easier to just run a stepper test on the axis...
[18:07:49] <cpresser> why not do it all in software, if its possible to do. acutally i bought a dial indicator to check if i was losing steps.
[18:08:03] <cpresser> JT-Shop: not if you are only losing steps in high torque situations
[18:08:04] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: any numbers on the Mashine setup Steppers Drivers mounting to the leadscrew pitch
[18:08:51] <James_Cole> sorry?
[18:09:01] <JT-Shop> cpresser: you mean running a stepper machine outside of the proper envlope of the design?
[18:09:30] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: what steppers are you using
[18:09:46] <IchGuckLive> what Volt is supplyed
[18:10:08] <cpresser> JT-Shop: kind of. a lot of people dont know the mechanical limits of the setup. like forces, torque, speed, acceleration
[18:10:19] <IchGuckLive> what stepperdrivers are the Stepper motors connected to
[18:10:21] <JT-Shop> how likely is a stepper to lose steps and not stall?
[18:10:21] <James_Cole> the steppers are built by nanotec
[18:10:30] <Jymmm> cpresser: 200mph
[18:10:32] <IchGuckLive> Thats Gread
[18:10:48] <cpresser> for example, i own a gantry, but i am not aware of the mass of the portal it moves. so i am not able to proper calculate the max accelleration of the axis. its trial and error
[18:10:50] <IchGuckLive> nanotec offers datasheed
[18:10:59] <James_Cole> yes, i know
[18:11:11] <James_Cole> but the drivers are kind of diy
[18:11:21] <James_Cole> not built by me, without any documents
[18:11:27] <IchGuckLive> the Drivers are Gecko Leadshine TB6560 ?
[18:11:37] <James_Cole> i have absolutely no idea
[18:11:39] <JT-Shop> sure I've the same a gantry that I don't care about how much force it takes to move so I ran stepper tests to find the breaking point
[18:11:51] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: Bad on that
[18:12:00] <James_Cole> can't change it
[18:12:05] <JT-Shop> then backed off 25%
[18:12:23] <Jymmm> James_Cole: what voltage to the drivers?
[18:12:25] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: Vlt 24 48 80 Maybe
[18:12:37] <IchGuckLive> B)
[18:12:54] <James_Cole> i have no idea
[18:12:58] <cpresser> JT-Shop: and thats the reason why we people want to count steps and compare them, as a diagnostics tool :)
[18:13:08] <James_Cole> yes, thank you
[18:13:10] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: Bad on that 2
[18:13:11] <James_Cole> :-)
[18:13:12] <JT-Shop> is it possible to lose steps with a low voltage driver and not stall?
[18:13:17] <Jymmm> James_Cole: Huh? What power supply are you using?
[18:13:29] <James_Cole> i would have to look that up
[18:13:33] <cpresser> i had results like this: http://ca.rstenpresser.de/~cpresser/tmp/pictures/milling/GbR_Gefr%e4st.jpg
[18:13:36] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: micro stall maybe?
[18:13:44] <JT-Shop> wtf is that?

[18:14:10] <James_Cole> what do you mean?
[18:14:20] <cpresser> it should read 'GbR', but since the machine lost steps it turned out like shown on the picture
[18:14:26] <IchGuckLive> is there a Reseller of your Router
[18:14:26] <Jymmm> James_Cole: then could you look it up please
[18:14:44] <Jymmm> James_Cole: or provide specific links to what you have?
[18:15:03] <James_Cole> there are no links as it is all custom built
[18:15:08] <James_Cole> or so i think at least
[18:15:41] <James_Cole> the power supply is a computer psu
[18:15:45] <Jymmm> James_Cole: Your telling us your car makes a noise, but not what the car is. We can't help without information.
[18:16:13] <Jymmm> Then thats 12VDC and low for most steppers. do you have photos?
[18:16:22] <James_Cole> not yet
[18:16:25] <Jymmm> of the whole thing? LEGIBLE ones
[18:16:40] <James_Cole> i can make photos
[18:17:26] <Jymmm> in focus and large enough resoution to see details would be best.
[18:17:31] <JT-Shop> cpresser: lost steps on a rapid move?
[18:17:48] <James_Cole> that's no problem
[18:17:52] <James_Cole> focus etc
[18:17:58] <James_Cole> what do you need photos of?
[18:18:12] <James_Cole> driver wire mess?
[18:18:16] <James_Cole> steppers?
[18:18:18] <James_Cole> psu?
[18:18:24] <James_Cole> all of it, i guess? :-)
[18:18:31] <Loetmichel> cpresser: looks like lost steps
[18:18:33] <cpresser> JT-Shop: actually i cant tell you where exactly those steps got lost. its even possible that this picture was made when i was using another controller than emc2^^

[18:19:41] <IchGuckLive> mrsun: i had to made one of this in the 1960th
[18:19:46] <JT-Shop> so running the stepper test would have shown that you are losing steps as well

[18:24:27] <mrsun> an air cylinder?
[18:24:31] <Jymmm> mrsun: but about a 4" stroke
[18:24:57] <JT-Shop> cpresser: so even with the bad software running a g code to test the axis would show the missing steps?
[18:25:12] <Jymmm> mrsun: pneumatics are a tad out of budget right now.
[18:25:16] <syyl_ws_> what?
[18:25:18] <mrsun> or its something similiar IchGuckLive that paint was nice =)
[18:25:32] <mrsun> Jymmm, a lever and a pivot then ? :)
[18:25:34] <syyl_ws_> its by far the cheapest variant to get linear motion for that kind of work, Jymmm
[18:25:47] <syyl_ws_> get a cylinder and valve from ebay
[18:26:12] <Jymmm> syyl_ws_: it's not singular, it's multiple
[18:26:15] <mrsun> just a guide bushing, a shaft going to a lever that pivots at like half of it, press the other half, push the rod up and voila

[18:31:04] <IchGuckLive> hi
[18:31:08] <cpresser> JT-Shop: i am not sure if you can read the step-count from stepgen; buf if yes; one could compere the count if you run "G53 G0 X0" and after re-homing the x-axis
[18:31:28] <cpresser> that would give you the number of lost steps

[18:35:57] <IchGuckLive> no git anymore
[18:36:36] <IchGuckLive> get the DEB into your packetsource and remove the standard emc #
[18:36:49] <YAGO> Ok so the master 2.6 now has your mod ?
[18:37:06] <JT-Shop> cpresser: perhaps if you could swap the home switch with probe input and check the count after the probe move that might work
[18:37:16] <IchGuckLive> YAGO: yes
[18:37:39] <cpresser> that would require some kind of MUX in hal, but that sounds like a good idead
[18:37:45] <YAGO> I still download the source one and compile or just use the packaged one ?
[18:37:47] <JT-Shop> yea
[18:38:01] <IchGuckLive> mrsun: buildbot deb
[18:38:09] <JT-Shop> I think that would work actually
[18:38:30] <IchGuckLive> YAGO: buildbot are you on lucid Realtime
[18:38:38] <cpresser> i acutally have some freetime next week; i will try to implement that :)
[18:38:48] <YAGO> Yes I am lucid RT
[18:39:31] <IchGuckLive> YAGO: "deb http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/ lucid master-rt" into the sources and remove emc2
[18:39:53] <IchGuckLive> then install linuxcnc
[18:40:00] <IchGuckLive> from synaptic
[18:40:20] <YAGO> ok I will try it right now Thank you Sammel
[18:45:05] <JT-Shop> cpresser: actually you don't need to fool with steps as the position result of the probe move will be different if you lost steps
[18:46:06] <JT-Shop> so if by testing you know X-0.12345 is a good probe result then make that the number you compare the probe result to
[18:47:08] <IchGuckLive> YAGO: dont forget to save your configs
[18:48:00] <YAGO> I added the repository to synaptic it shows emc2 as not installed altough it is and I can run it. So I cannot uninstall it with synaptic
[18:48:31] <YAGO> should I just go ahead and install linuxcnc ?
[18:48:33] <cpresser> YAGO: this might be due to the namechange. the new package name is linuxcnc
[18:50:14] <cpresser> JT-Shop: still i think investigatin the step-count is the better way of doing this. it wont require probe movements and can be done completely in hal
[18:51:33] <JT-Shop> if you trip the home switch during a move is that not an error?
[18:51:34] <James_Cole> here i am again
[18:51:44] <James_Cole> @cpresser: i'd like to have this diagnostics tool, too
[18:51:52] <James_Cole> i'll think about and work on it
[18:51:59] <James_Cole> AND i have made photos :-)
[18:52:07] <cpresser> JT-Shop: not the home-switch; but the limit switch
[18:52:38] <cpresser> since most people habe shared limit-home-switches on cheaper machines its the same in that cases
[18:52:47] <YAGO> When I start synaptic I get
[18:52:51] <YAGO> E:Malformed line 57 in source /etc/apt/sources.list (dist parse) and then it crashes.
[18:52:55] <YAGO> apt_get update returns the same error
[18:55:32] <JT-Shop> I guess that was crossing my mind when I suggested the probe move
[18:56:22] <cpresser> if you disable the switch with a mux this wont be a problem; but its quite a bit of tinkering in hal to archieve the desired results
[18:56:34] <cpresser> that why i think working on the counts is easier :)

[19:12:04] <James_Cole> ok
[19:12:11] <IchGuckLive> halfstepp means you need 400steps per 1Rev
[19:12:31] <YAGO> ok I was able to cleanly uninstall linuxcnc 2.5 installed from live cd so first step ok
[19:12:38] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: can you meter the Volt out of the Coil to the Drivers

[19:17:22] <IchGuckLive> so portal
[19:17:49] <James_Cole> X+Y is nanotec, Z axis not
[19:17:50] <IchGuckLive> i see TRapezional or ballscrew leadsrew

[19:20:44] <James_Cole> can you say this in german, please? :-)
[19:21:44] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: it will fit your need But 100% on leadscrew 10% on axis movement precission
[19:22:25] <IchGuckLive> james if you turn the Ballscrew one REVolution the Axis move ? inch
[19:22:39] <James_Cole> 160 steps is 1mm
[19:22:43] <IchGuckLive> or even mm
[19:22:59] <IchGuckLive> oh you already done this
[19:23:08] <James_Cole> but i don't know the gear ratio
[19:23:34] <James_Cole> or better transmission ratio, i guess
[19:23:40] <IchGuckLive> no problem if you got the SCALE to 160 Already
[19:23:47] <James_Cole> yes
[19:24:25] <JT-Shop> finally got that whordeal done http://imagebin.org/216811
[19:24:52] <JT-Shop> http://imagebin.org/216812
[19:25:14] <James_Cole> does this mean the leadscrew is driven exactly, but the milling tool is not?
[19:25:20] <James_Cole> to a certain amount?
[19:25:43] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: so i calculate at min 375mm/min is your savest velocity of the AXIS
[19:25:52] <James_Cole> wow
[19:25:58] <James_Cole> how do you do that?
[19:26:27] <James_Cole> what's the basis of this calculation?

[19:39:44] <James_Cole> if that's possible
[19:40:09] <IchGuckLive> the savest is to stay between 150 and 200
[19:40:22] <andypugh> Yes, you can probably go to hundreds of volte before the varnish flashes over.

[19:41:42] <IchGuckLive> so calculate your own mark the connector screw and go 1REV of the motor see what you got in the Axis number and time by 160 scale
[19:42:07] <James_Cole> sorry, haven't understood that
[19:42:27] <IchGuckLive> 150-200RPM max on the Stepper
[19:42:36] <andypugh> Tomorow I am going to expunge the RCDs from my system.
[19:42:47] <IchGuckLive> you do not know howmany steps /rev the stepper makes
[19:43:03] <James_Cole> 200 according to datasheet
[19:43:11] <James_Cole> step angle = 1.8
[19:43:14] <IchGuckLive> but your system
[19:43:29] <IchGuckLive> you can have lots of more by the drivers
[19:43:31] <andypugh> It is just too tedious walking back to the house to turn the lights and power back on when the contactor makes contact.
[19:44:03] <andypugh> I have realised I can swap the incomer RCD for a switch, and then put RCBOs on the shower and outside sockets.
[19:44:07] <James_Cole> even if the motor step angle = 1.8 there can be other than 200 steps per rev?
[19:44:31] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: yes Leadshine makes 16000 of it
[19:44:49] <IchGuckLive> or profesional even more
[19:44:51] <andypugh> Which is actually _closer_ to the requirements of the regulations, as there is meant to be discrimination so that a trip leaves the lights on.
[19:44:58] <James_Cole> ok
[19:44:59] <Loetmichel> James_Cole: man microstepping
[19:45:18] <James_Cole> i'll test it
[19:45:22] <James_Cole> but not today
[19:45:26] <IchGuckLive> hi Loetmichel Soccer count is ?
[19:45:26] <andypugh> no manual entry for microstepping
[19:45:31] <James_Cole> i know
[19:45:37] <Loetmichel> but you cant use microstepping to enhance resolution because microsteps are not gureed to be positoion stable
[19:45:41] <James_Cole> but i'll test the steps
[19:45:45] <Loetmichel> IchGuckLive: no idea
[19:45:47] -!- mazafaka [mazafaka!~mazafaka_@unaffiliated/mazafaka] has parted #linuxcnc

[19:46:20] <IchGuckLive> Thanks
[19:46:21] <James_Cole> ok, now i know a lot more than before ;-)
[19:46:40] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: Thats why we are here fore
[19:46:49] <James_Cole> that's great :-D
[19:47:06] <Loetmichel> so microstepping is good for spoothig out the moitor run and maybe egalize "stairs" in the moves, but not for precision work
[19:47:12] <James_Cole> ok
[19:47:13] <James_Cole> thanks
[19:47:28] * Loetmichel has to sort his fingers again ;-)
[19:47:33] <James_Cole> so once i know the steps per rev, i'll calculate the max vel.
[19:47:58] <Loetmichel> maybe its the 40 drops if metamizol... (bad back, may have dislocated a rib tonight)
[19:48:24] <Loetmichel> James_Cole: the max vel cant be calculated
[19:48:27] <James_Cole> assuming 200 steps per rev. this makes 150 rpm max makes 150*1,25 = 187 max vel
[19:48:27] <Loetmichel> only tested
[19:48:31] <James_Cole> is that correct?
[19:48:43] <James_Cole> can't be calculated?
[19:49:01] <Loetmichel> the mechanics and masses are the main reason for slow or fast machines
[19:49:03] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: it may go lots of faster but not save without steploss
[19:49:12] <Loetmichel> followed by the stepper troque and the drivers
[19:49:14] <James_Cole> sure, it goes a lot faster
[19:49:18] <James_Cole> but with steploss :-D
[19:49:40] <James_Cole> of course, router design counts into it etc
[19:49:49] <James_Cole> but that's a starting point
[19:50:03] <Loetmichel> 150 RPM on a stepper?
[19:50:23] <Loetmichel> what drivers have you that a stepper has any torque left tuning so fast?
[19:50:33] <James_Cole> probably steps per minute, not rounds
[19:50:36] <Loetmichel> ah, sorry, rotations per MINUTE
[19:50:39] <IchGuckLive> James_Cole: calculate (Stepper Steps per Rev TIMES 150RPM) Divided by 160steps/mm
[19:50:44] <James_Cole> ok
[19:50:55] <James_Cole> yes
[19:51:07] <Loetmichel> so 600 should be the theoretical maximum of std steppers with std drivers, more or less
[19:51:21] <James_Cole> cool
[19:51:23] <Loetmichel> 600 rpm
[19:51:46] <Loetmichel> BUT: at tis speed a normal stepper with a normal <40V drive has NO troque left
[19:52:11] <James_Cole> yes, i do understand know
[19:52:13] <Loetmichel> depending on how much torque your setup needs to move you have to de-rate it ;-)
[19:52:15] <andypugh> I think my miling machine is going to need a speed-up head.
[19:52:25] <IchGuckLive> Loetmichel: ha got ballscrews with 0.2NM
[19:52:37] <andypugh> It has gears from 45 to 1000 rpm.
[19:52:40] <Loetmichel> IchGuckLive: and how much masses on the axes?
[19:52:52] <Loetmichel> and ho much friction in the linear ways?
[19:53:02] <andypugh> With the VFD the 45rpm speed can turn at less than one RPM. Implacably and with huge torque.
[19:53:03] <James_Cole> i'll go watch soccer know
[19:53:09] <IchGuckLive> around 80-100N

[19:55:38] <Loetmichel> sorry
[19:55:39] <andypugh> JT-Shop: Yes, in fact one option might be to leave the gearbox in neutral permanently and connect the motor directly to the main shaft.
[19:55:59] <JT-Shop> 3600 RPM motor?
[19:56:02] <Loetmichel> andypugh: what mill?
[19:56:06] <Tom_itx> or pull a gear to minimize drag?
[19:56:30] <Loetmichel> are the spindle shaft bearings made for 3600 rpm?
[19:56:33] <IchGuckLive> andypugh: did you go with the MY1020
[19:57:06] <andypugh> Loetmichel: http://www.lathes.co.uk/harrisonmiller/index.html with the vertical head
[19:58:09] <Loetmichel> do you have a vertical head for that?
[19:58:11] <IchGuckLive> andypugh: is the 4th tiltshift in
[19:58:38] <IchGuckLive> so X can do C within some degree

[20:00:03] <andypugh> Yes, the head does swivel.
[20:00:04] <alex4nder>
[20:00:41] <Loetmichel> andypugh: looks nice but the collet is a bit rusty ;-)
[20:00:54] <andypugh> Reading that lathes.co.uk page it says that you could order it with a higher speed range, and that was done by changing the pulley sizes. So I think I will :-)
[20:01:16] <Loetmichel> what i wanted to know: if you use a direct drive: are the bearings of the spindle up to the task?
[20:01:53] <andypugh> That collet is one my dad had lying around. It will only be useful in the horizontal spindle now, because the vertical is now BT 30 with a pneumatic drawbar.
[20:02:06] <Loetmichel> I would use the vertical head like it is and use for high speed milling a seperate electricals spindle mounted beside it
[20:02:23] <Loetmichel> maybe wit a "glasses" type holder

[20:03:26] <andypugh> Loetmichel: There is no quill to clamp around, but a modified bottom bearing cap might allow that.
[20:04:11] <Loetmichel> anyway: thats would be the way I would go
[20:04:24] <Loetmichel> not gearing um the vertcal head
[20:04:51] <andypugh> It is the way I would go, were I sensible. But my idea for a speed-increaser is interesting and I want to try it :-)
[20:05:25] <Loetmichel> maybe aditional using a vfd to get the motor up to 120 Hz
[20:05:29] <Loetmichel> but not more
[20:05:54] <andypugh> yes, I already upped the speed to 75hz
[20:08:22] <andypugh> Knowing that the machine was available with a 1500rpm top speed makes me entirely happy using the VFD to get the same effect.
[20:09:49] <andypugh> The slow speed make more sense in a Horizontal machine. You could twirl some very big cutters.

[20:14:05] <andypugh> That's interesting. Lathes.co.uk says that the vertical head has a speedup factor, but just testing mine it appears to be exactly 1:1
[20:15:38] -!- phantoxeD has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
[20:16:36] <andypugh> Aha! There were high-speed and low-speed vertical head options.
[20:17:04] <andypugh> So I have the slow-speed horizontal option combined with the slow-speed vertical option :-)
[20:20:00] <andypugh> Which gives me a top speed ot 1000rpm, rather than the optional 2800
[20:20:32] <anonimasu> http://ah.io23.net/ul/files/PA110053.JPG
[20:20:37] <anonimasu> how the ballscrew ended up :)
[20:21:41] <andypugh> Seems to have worked out well.
[20:21:41] <anonimasu> no tapers just counter nuts.
[20:22:05] <anonimasu> there's a 2mm sleeve outside to bring it to the dia of my couplers and preload the bearings
[20:22:23] <anonimasu> though, gotta machine a hex on the end of that part on the right..
[20:22:51] <andypugh> It took me ages to work out what was wrong with my lathe when the screwed-on extension came loose. It's now a glued-on extension.
[20:23:04] <anonimasu> hehe, i figured the same
[20:23:08] <anonimasu> hence the counter nut :p
[20:23:32] <anonimasu> locktite for final assembly, though that's a bit off still.. gotta drop it into the parts cleaner first and clean out the nut
[20:23:43] <anonimasu> and get that damn oiler off.
[20:24:07] <anonimasu> gotta stick a central lube point there instead.
[20:24:44] <anonimasu> err hookup to the central oiler there will be later.
[20:25:23] <anonimasu> :)
[20:27:55] * JT-Shop takes a short break before welding up the bases for the unstuckers
[20:30:40] <anonimasu> tho no tapered bearings yet, they are at the desk, but i need to machine a preload spacer before i stick them there.

[21:02:05] <tjb1> JT-Shop: remove battery and leave it plugged in for at least 5 hours
[21:02:43] <tjb1> Wait
[21:03:32] <andypugh> JT-Shop: No noises on startup? That's a bad sign.

[21:09:45] <tjb1> wouldnt hurt ;)
[21:10:15] <JT-Shop> nothing seems to happen
[21:10:34] <tjb1> is there a light on the front side of the laptop?

[23:37:12] <andypugh> Not having a keyboard is a bit awkward
[23:37:12] <tjb1> patrick
[23:37:24] <r00t4rd3d> andypugh, onscreen!
[23:37:34] <andypugh> I can sort-of VNC into the machine, but it asks for a password.
[23:37:35] <r00t4rd3d> you go through godaddy?
[23:37:39] -!- iwoj has quit [Client Quit]
[23:37:46] <tjb1> they just have the domain
[23:37:52] <andypugh> I have installed an onscreen password, but I can't start it, without a keyboard
[23:38:06] <andypugh> (onscreen keyboard, I mean)
[23:38:07] <r00t4rd3d> use the handicap onscreen keyboard
[23:38:17] <andypugh> Which is where?
[23:38:23] <r00t4rd3d> have it start with the os
[23:38:27] <r00t4rd3d> what os
[23:38:32] <andypugh> Ubuntu
[23:38:50] <tjb1> poobuntu :)
[23:38:50] <r00t4rd3d> in the admin tab there is like start up applications or services?
[23:39:08] <andypugh> Probably. How do I add soemthing I can't type?
[23:39:28] <r00t4rd3d> ssh
[23:39:37] <r00t4rd3d> and use putty or something
[23:39:49] <tjb1> or you know…just go buy a keyboard
[23:40:02] -!- asdfasd has quit [Ping timeout: 246 seconds]
[23:40:31] <andypugh> I have an ssh connection, but that's no good for dialogs which pop up on the native screen
[23:40:45] <andypugh> Like the "allow remote desktop" one
[23:40:47] <r00t4rd3d> remote desktop connection
[23:42:06] <andypugh> Yes, when I try to Remote Desktop a dialog box opens on the remote screen saying "Type in the password to unlock the keyring"
[23:42:31] <r00t4rd3d> delete the keyring
[23:43:07] <r00t4rd3d> its under your user name in user accounts
[23:43:26] <andypugh> And I can delete it without a password?
[23:43:44] <r00t4rd3d> oh wait
[23:43:56] <r00t4rd3d> Applications > Accessories > Passwords and Encryption keys
[23:43:57] <r00t4rd3d> maybe
[23:44:03] <r00t4rd3d> not sure with old stuff
[23:44:13] <r00t4rd3d> and im not on ubuntu atm
[23:44:59] <r00t4rd3d> shit you need a keyboard to enter a blank password for the keyring
[23:45:22] <andypugh> It's fun, isn't it?
[23:45:54] <r00t4rd3d> goto the machine and set it to auto login
[23:46:03] <tjb1> Hey r00t4rd3d http://www.cnczone.com/forums/open_source_cnc_machine_designs/101878-electronic_home_switches_made_easy.html
[23:46:05] <andypugh> I have a bluetooth keyboard in the same room as the machine. The one I am typing on now, but that is no help.
[23:46:23] <andypugh> I have a spare keyboard in the garage. It is PS/2
[23:46:46] <tjb1> I have a ps/2 to usb converter :)
[23:46:49] <tjb1> doesnt do you much good
[23:47:21] <ReadError> andypugh,
[23:47:21] <ReadError> synergy
[23:47:24] <ReadError> use it, love it
[23:48:21] <andypugh> synergy?
[23:48:29] <ReadError> ya
[23:48:42] <ReadError> i use it with 3 computers
[23:49:04] <andypugh> Excellent.
[23:49:07] <andypugh> What is it?
[23:50:02] <tjb1> http://synergy-foss.org/
[23:50:03] <ReadError> basically, 1 computer is the host
[23:50:54] <ReadError> you connect the others to it
[23:50:55] <ReadError> and you can share the same kb/mouse across all of them
[23:50:55] <ReadError> and copy/paste between them
[23:51:09] <tjb1> copy and paste too?
[23:51:10] <tjb1> hmm
[23:51:12] <ReadError> ya
[23:51:14] <ReadError> its awesome
[23:51:23] <tjb1> And its free??
[23:51:34] <andypugh> And it runs on a Mac?
[23:51:43] <tjb1> Ubuntu, Windows and Mac
[23:51:55] <tjb1> Debian, Fedora and Red Hat
[23:52:12] <andypugh> i guess I need a keyboard to install it though. :-)
[23:52:26] <tjb1> Well you need a keyboard to use it...
[23:52:51] <andypugh> I have a keyboard. Quite a nice one. It just can't connect to the machine in question.
[23:53:10] <tjb1> Why not?
[23:53:20] <andypugh> Because it is Bluetooth
[23:53:27] <tjb1> Ah.
[23:53:39] <tjb1> Those dongles are $0.50 on ebay :P
[23:53:52] <andypugh> The PS/2 Keyboard in the garage has a different problem.
[23:54:00] <tjb1> Only thing you can do is download it and try
[23:54:09] <tjb1> http://synergy-foss.org/download/
[23:54:25] <andypugh> I am actually planning on giving up and going to sleep.
[23:54:42] <andypugh> I have a small USB keyboard on the way from eBay
[23:54:55] <ReadError> andypugh,
[23:54:57] <tjb1> China?
[23:54:58] <ReadError> set it up over vnc
[23:55:03] <ReadError> bam
[23:55:09] <ReadError> ya it works on linux/osx/windows
[23:55:13] <ReadError> i use it on all 3
[23:55:20] <ReadError> for OSX, grab synergyKM
[23:55:42] <andypugh> I thought we had already mde it clear that I can't VNC because I can't type in the VNC password
[23:56:07] <ReadError> ah
[23:56:09] <tjb1> Can you use the virtual keyboard, copy it and then paste it?
[23:56:19] <ReadError> set it up via CLI :)
[23:56:24] <andypugh> Which virtual keyboard?
[23:57:01] <tjb1> You trying to login to ubuntu?
[23:57:28] <alex4nder> yoh
[23:57:31] <andypugh> I have fogotten what I was trying to do.
[23:58:01] <tjb1> I dont remember where you needed the keyboard either :)
[23:58:18] <tjb1> May be of assistance - http://superuser.com/questions/122647/ubuntu-on-screen-keyboard-without-typing
[23:58:26] <andypugh> This looks handy http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wireless-Keyboard-Removable-Adjustable-Touchpad/dp/B004TQL3YS/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1339977352&sr=8-11
[23:59:26] <andypugh> Yes, it is helpful in that it says that is can't be done.
[23:59:28] <tjb1> Thats freakin sweet
[23:59:45] <tjb1> Now to find it in the US :)
