[00:59:53] <Connor> That look like a good air cylinder for Power draw bar?
[01:00:47] <Connor> I think they ebayer is wrong on the stroke and bore size.. It's 5" bore, by 1" stroke. x 3 stage push 1 stage pull.
[01:01:11] -!- draig has quit [Quit: draig]
[01:02:09] <Connor> Never mind.. too big.. at 100 PSI just 1 stage is over 1900 lbs.
[01:04:53] <jdh> how much do you need?
[01:05:02] <Connor> 2000 or so.. total. :)
[01:08:11] <jdh> the powrr drawbar will detract from the beauty of the machine.

[01:13:37] <jdh> he says keep the drives I have. The Keling guy says get 5056d
[01:13:51] <Connor> HUh?
[01:14:39] <jdh> I asked both about getting new drives
[01:15:01] <jdh> (hoss amd keling)
[01:15:08] <Connor> Oh. ROFL.
[01:15:22] <Connor> What's the issue with the ones you have ?
[01:15:57] <jdh> they are fairly hot. somewhat noisy.
[01:16:04] <jdh> I a
[01:16:08] <Connor> I wouldn't mind switching to digital ones..
[01:16:16] <Tom_itx> new drives?
[01:16:18] <Tom_itx> for what?
[01:16:36] <jdh> was thinking about buying one.
[01:16:36] <Connor> Trade my 5056's for 5056D's .:)
[01:17:08] <jdh> geckos are compact
[01:17:11] <Connor> I just want to know what the chief benefit is..
[01:17:20] <Tom_itx> geckos are nice too
[01:17:22] <Connor> These aren't that big.
[01:17:47] <jdh> mine are pretty big
[01:24:45] <Connor> Hmm.. 3" bore by 1" stroke..
[01:24:53] <Connor> 3 stage..

[01:26:33] <Connor> @ 100PSI some where around 2099Lbs
[01:32:14] <Connor> jdh: I was thinking of putting a regulator on my scuba tank (I have 2 steel ones) and using that for my air source.. :)
[01:32:33] <Connor> and just go refill the tanks when ever they get low...
[01:32:45] <Connor> which, would take a very long time with 2200psi in them.
[01:33:39] <jdh> I'll give you $100 for them :)
[01:33:52] <Connor> One is a J valve. :)
[01:33:57] <Connor> or was it K..
[01:34:02] <jdh> nevermimd
[01:34:03] <Connor> Let me go look.. Been a while.
[01:34:12] <Connor> Why?
[01:34:18] <Connor> I said they were OLD>
[01:34:47] <jdh> i just saw steel, not old.
[01:36:20] <jdh> I have 40 or so.
[01:36:22] <Connor> Ahh.
[01:36:36] <Connor> They probably need to by hydroed again.
[01:36:44] <Connor> Both still have air in them.

[03:41:10] <Connor> Not very much.
[03:41:18] <Connor> 1/4" Maybe??
[03:41:44] <jdh> heh... I got a july4 25% off HF coupon

[03:45:04] <Connor> I've got a rather large one.. Had for 4 years or better.. NIB still :)
[03:45:16] <r00t-Shed> i got a big one too
[03:45:43] <Jymmm> can you pick it yourself
[03:45:55] <Jymmm> up
[03:46:24] <Connor> mine? Maybe.. Bad back.. haven't tried in a while.
[03:46:47] <Jymmm> Heh, I can't even get my arms around one of mine
[03:47:49] <Jymmm> I think it's the largest 110V window unit you can get... 18,000 BTU
[03:48:12] <r00t-Shed> oh i thought we were still talking penis
[03:48:30] <Jymmm> And yes, it WILL run off my EU2000 generator =)
[03:48:32] <jdh> you need to get out more.
[03:49:14] <Connor> 12,000 BTU, 90 Lbs..

[03:56:28] <Jymmm> MY bad 15,000 BTU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16896140006
[03:56:34] <Jymmm> Works AWESOME!!!
[03:57:28] <Jymmm> Love the energy save feature
[03:57:40] <Connor> Mine is a Frigidare..
[04:00:35] <Connor> I think this unit is WAY too much for the room size...
[04:00:35] <Connor> 77 square feet.. needs less that 5000 BTU...
[04:01:12] <jdh> mine is 12'x25' or so
[04:01:28] <jdh> 10ft ceilings
[04:01:40] <jdh> and leaky garage doors
[04:03:08] <Connor> ceiling is insulated in mine.. Bricks on 2 sides.. no insulation in the walls.. 1 wall is a "inside" wall..
[04:03:26] <Connor> It's piped for air from the home unit.. just no return..
[04:03:33] <jdh> it would be nice if I could close off 1/3 of it
[04:03:35] <Connor> also have the stupid hot water heater in it..

[04:06:42] <tjb1> Think I am becoming immusne to my asthma medicine
[04:07:32] <elmo40> it happens
[04:07:59] <Connor> tjb1: What are you using?
[04:08:15] <tjb1> albuterol sulfate
[04:08:21] <tjb1> Either that or this paint is really killing me
[04:08:33] <Connor> I have sever allergies.. was on prescription meds until the took all the ones I was using off the market..
[04:08:46] <Connor> paint? Ugg.. That can't be helping...
[04:09:18] <tjb1> Ive never gone to get a long term thing like advair or something
[04:09:31] <tjb1> Should probably go get looked at so I can get it, I am using inhaler too much...
[04:10:25] <tjb1> Ever user one of those once a day things?
[04:10:32] <Connor> I have asthma too.. But, was linked to Allergies and crap.. I even managed to get certified for scuba.. go figure..
[04:11:31] <Connor> I just take 1st generation antihistamine now.. 2nd generation stuff didn't do much for me.
[04:13:26] <tjb1> What is 1st gen antihistamine?
[04:13:26] <tjb1> I take Diphenhydramine Hydochloride (generic allergy pills) and it kind of works...
[04:13:27] <Connor> Stayhist, Aerohist.
[04:15:20] <Connor> Contains chlorpheniramine maleate
[04:15:21] <tjb1> You have to rinse your mouth after using advair?
[04:15:21] <Connor> 2nd gen would be like Claratin, Allegra etc..
[04:15:38] <Connor> Never used it.
[04:19:34] <tjb1> Ive tried Claratin and Allegra, they both suck
[04:19:37] <tjb1> Over priced junk

[04:27:24] <mcenter> I have had luck with Fluonase. But, I only use it for my allergy seasons.
[04:27:29] <tjb1> This generic stuff is the only stuff I found that works
[04:27:35] <tjb1> Generic benadryl

[12:47:52] <r00t4rd3d> i have a nut made of it
[12:47:58] <archivist> probably depends on what it is rubbing against
[12:48:31] <Tom_itx> i see these backlash nuts made of it
[12:48:40] <Tom_itx> can't see that lasting long
[12:48:48] <JT-Shop-> Tom_itx: normally if something smooth is rubbing against delrin it will last a long time if the pressure is not high enought to deform it

[14:13:26] <r00t4rd3d> i realize that
[14:13:27] <pfred1> that costs extra
[14:13:35] <FinboySlick> It'll let you model the part. For g-code, you'll need some other software or add-on.

[14:13:43] <r00t4rd3d> or something right?

[15:14:42] <WillenCMD> does anyone know how to set stepgen position on startup
[15:14:50] <WillenCMD> hal based only
[15:21:19] <JT-Shop-> can you expand a bit on what your trying to do?
[15:21:39] -!- Gabe_ [Gabe_!~Gabe@] has joined #linuxcnc
[15:25:52] <WillenCMD> i wrote a gui, using only hal, i would like to remember the position of the machine and set it on start up
[15:26:52] <WillenCMD> i have an incremental encoder, attatched to a tiny 5v microcontroller that monitors the encoder using a battery, it sends the initial startup position to hal on startup
[15:27:27] <JT-Shop-> so if the machine moves while off the microcontroller keeps track of that?
[15:27:33] <WillenCMD> yep
[15:27:40] <JT-Shop-> hmmmm
[15:27:47] <WillenCMD> its set on the interrupt on the microcontroller
[15:27:53] <WillenCMD> so it sleeps untill it recieves movement
[15:27:59] <WillenCMD> battery will last along time
[15:28:13] <WillenCMD> not bad for $15 bucks
[15:30:22] <JT-Shop-> got me on that one...
[15:31:17] <WillenCMD> yea, its been a bit of a learning process, but the gui is very feature rich, computes cycle time, time for each move its on, estimated time untill completion
[15:31:41] <WillenCMD> time between cycle start intervals
[15:31:51] <WillenCMD> then exports it to the companies databse
[15:31:55] <WillenCMD> to log production
[15:34:43] <WillenCMD> then at shut down it saves the complete state of the machine to a .state file and also the part information. All i need to do is figure out how to set the position and im golden

[21:01:17] <JT-Shop-> LOL all of the above

[21:03:59] <JT-Shop-> forgot about that one
[21:04:25] <andypugh> tjb1: Ugly, but you could arrange it to be out of sight. Shouldn't be there though.
[21:04:26] <taiden> that 8020 is very straight
[21:04:45] <tjb1> There is the bend and gash
[21:04:49] <JT-Shop-> tjb1: what is the straitness specification for that brand?
[21:05:11] <tjb1> Not sure, I have a better picture uploading of the bemd
[21:05:13] <tjb1> Certainly shouldnt be that bad
[21:05:21] <JT-Shop-> dunno
[21:05:36] <tjb1> Not too worried about the gash, its the bend that is the problem
[21:05:46] <JT-Shop-> structural is not really very straight usually
[21:06:04] <tjb1> But this isnt over the entire length, this bend starts a specific spot
[21:06:19] <JT-Shop-> that's a problem they need to fix then
[21:06:29] <WillenCMD> anybody know how to program a button press and held with gtk?

[21:09:01] <tjb1> And only $0.81 an inch on the 3030
[21:09:45] <tjb1> Here it is - "Straightness - .0125" per foot of length, not to exceed .120 over 20 feet of length"

[21:12:08] <WillenCMD> its standalone 3 axis motion control using only hal
[21:12:37] <WillenCMD> non gcode or interpolated movements, though there is an interpolation hal component
[21:12:44] <WillenCMD> i have them all pretty much memeroized
[21:13:03] <WillenCMD> lol i launch my browser the hal api html is my home page
[21:13:31] <DJ9DJ> gn8
[21:13:40] <taiden> my goal is to have a fixture with 12 parts, and then have a GUI where i can select options for each part
[21:13:57] <tjb1> Maybe I will get a discount on the gashed one but the bent one definitely needs replaced
[21:13:59] <taiden> and then have it run the appropriate cut files for each location
[21:14:11] -!- DJ9DJ has quit [Quit: bye]
[21:14:26] <WillenCMD> shouldn't be that hard gladevcp makes it very easy to work with hal
[21:14:53] <WillenCMD> this is the first program i have ever wrote, with the exception of microcontroller code
[21:15:11] <WillenCMD> so don't be fooled by my emense amount of time i have spent on it
[21:15:16] <taiden> :)
[21:15:40] <taiden> i'm hoping to be able to just make each option as an ngc
[21:16:02] <taiden> and then use my gui to just call these options for each location on the 12 part jig
[21:16:48] <WillenCMD> shouldn't be to complicated

[22:00:56] <alex4nder> interesting
[22:01:06] <jthornton> why is that
[22:01:12] <alex4nder> back in the 80s, no one had heard of tritip outside of Santa Barbara county.
[22:01:26] <alex4nder> I met someone in Colorado who carried it, but he was from Santa Barbara county. ;)
[22:01:34] <jthornton> that's what you guys thought
[22:01:58] <jthornton> it is also known as the "butchers cut"
[22:01:59] <alex4nder> tritip is from Santa Maria going back to Northern-Mexico days.

[22:45:47] <andypugh> I don't need them, it is just that the cheapest / highest current ones in the RS catalogue were the filtered style.
[22:46:15] <Jymmm> DB9 connectors?
[22:46:20] <andypugh> DB15
[22:46:45] <Jymmm> Um, I'd use db25 instead, cables are far more common

[22:47:12] <andypugh> I will make up my own cable.
[22:47:23] <Jymmm> Why?
[22:47:33] <andypugh> It is actually 3 motor power + 8 digital.
[22:47:53] <Jymmm> Yeah, DB25 cable is all moded, shielded etc for you
[22:47:57] <Jymmm> molded
[22:48:03] <andypugh> 10A ?
[22:48:06] <Jymmm> even the shells are
[22:48:15] <tjb1> Do lovejoy couplers have more backlash than the spring couplers?
[22:48:19] <Jymmm> maybe with two pins
[22:48:50] <andypugh> I have paired the pins, but probably not in the way that works for a premade cable
[22:48:57] <Jymmm> heh
[22:49:15] <Jymmm> I like the mic din connectrs for that

[22:51:27] <Jymmm> inline and panel mount
[22:51:58] <Jymmm> and a solid screw tight fitting as well
[22:52:45] <andypugh> I have used them all over my other machine (though they are a bit cheap and nasty).
[22:52:57] <Jymmm> them?
[22:53:02] <andypugh> I prefer Lemo or Neutrik connectors
[22:53:13] <alex4nder> yah, but Lemo tooling is $$$.
[22:53:18] <Jymmm> Sure at $20+/each
[22:53:31] <alex4nder> I used amp CPCs over the last race car I built
[22:53:41] <andypugh> Neutrik are reasonable (for 250V 20A connectors)
[22:53:43] <alex4nder> they were great, and good for the price.
[22:53:53] <Jymmm> You're going ghetto, but from db to 4pin din is an improvement and they won't fall out on ya.
[22:54:16] <Jymmm> and can handle the higher amperages
[22:54:17] <andypugh> I was planning to use 9W3
