[02:02:05] <Connor> Hey Guys.. I'm needing to turn some 1.5" CRS down.. It's too large to fit into my 3" chuck on my mini lathe with the inside jaws. outside jaws doesn't provide enough grip..
[02:02:05] -!- demacus_ [demacus_!~demacus@erft-4db7d406.pool.mediaWays.net] has joined #linuxcnc
[02:02:28] <Connor> so, I'm thinking of using the mill. Turn the head 90 degrees and use my 4" chuck.
[02:02:42] <Connor> What's the BEST way to get the head parallel to the table ?
[02:02:54] <Tom_itx> no tailstock?
[02:03:05] <Connor> On the mini lathe ?
[02:03:21] <Tom_itx> yes
[02:03:34] <Connor> Yes.. but, the mini lathe is in a bit of a mess ATM..
[02:04:07] <Connor> Besides, I might be able to cam this part out on the mill.
[02:04:11] <r00t4rd3d> i hope the thing going to mars crash lands and blows up
[02:04:24] <r00t4rd3d> BABOOM !
[02:04:25] <Connor> r00t4rd3d: WTF? Why?
[02:04:45] <r00t4rd3d> i like explosions

[02:05:31] * Tom_itx sends r00t4rd3d to the sun
[02:05:42] <r00t4rd3d> wtf is on mars anyway, nothing
[02:05:47] <r00t4rd3d> dirt
[02:06:24] <Tom_itx> there have been advances in technology that may otherwise never have been realized due to the space program
[02:06:39] <Connor> I'm thinking putting a rod in the 4" chuck.. and measure the distance from the bottom of it to the top of the table.. at two points..
[02:06:46] <Connor> if they're the same.. it's parallel to table... ?
[02:06:51] <Tom_itx> i'm not cheering for it, but i'm not really against it either
[02:07:09] <r00t4rd3d> then put your pompoms away
[02:07:28] <Tom_itx> none here
[02:07:37] <r00t4rd3d> i like tang but i could live without it
[02:07:52] <Tom_itx> velcro was an early one
[02:08:05] <Tom_itx> all the memory foam beds
[02:08:11] <r00t4rd3d> so in the 80's i would have had to tie my shoes
[02:08:14] <Tom_itx> i don't like those though
[02:09:35] <r00t4rd3d> velco was not invented by nasa either
[02:09:51] <pfred1> Romex wire

[02:10:18] <Tom_itx> carbon fiber
[02:10:21] <pfred1> I have one of their $250,000 pens
[02:10:24] <r00t4rd3d> A trademarked brand of non-metallic sheathed electrical cable developed by the former Rome Wire Company in 1922, and now produced by Southwire
[02:10:58] <pfred1> it writes equally poorly at any angle
[02:10:58] <r00t4rd3d> Developed at DuPont in 1965,[1][2][3] this high strength material was first commercially used in the early 1970s as a replacement for steel in racing tires.
[02:11:29] <r00t4rd3d> In 1958, Roger Bacon created high-performance carbon fibers at the Union Carbide Parma Technical Center, now GrafTech International Holdings, Inc., located outside of Cleveland, Ohio.
[02:11:40] <r00t4rd3d> All nope to nasa or space.
[02:11:52] <pfred1> GPS
[02:12:09] <Tom_itx> i think they pushed many areas that may never have been developed as quickly

[02:13:09] <pfred1> heck the Hubble rules if for no better reason than killer desktop background imagery
[02:13:12] <r00t4rd3d> gps was used in ww2
[02:13:48] <pfred1> r00t4rd3d while the Nazis had briefly made it into near space on some V2 flights no one had put up any satelites until Spuntnik
[02:14:02] <r00t4rd3d> was ground based
[02:14:20] <pfred1> S stands for Satelite

[02:14:43] <r00t4rd3d> positioning*
[02:14:45] <pfred1> no system in WW2 was global
[02:14:58] <r00t4rd3d> sure it was
[02:15:00] <r00t4rd3d> radio
[02:15:09] <pfred1> not the radio bomb beacons
[02:15:21] <pfred1> they were very local
[02:15:26] <r00t4rd3d> im not making it up, im reading it off wiki
[02:15:40] <pfred1> gee how about that wiki has BS info on it
[02:16:08] <r00t4rd3d> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Positioning_System
[02:16:16] <r00t4rd3d> seems overly through to me
[02:16:39] <Tom_itx> i'm not here to argue the point really
[02:16:41] <pfred1> while the radio trackers could position you globally they were not global in their reach
[02:16:51] <r00t4rd3d> err thorough
[02:17:10] <Tom_itx> i'm saying there have been advances that otherwise probably wouldn't be realized
[02:17:13] <pfred1> the nazis had a radio in France and one in Finland or someplace they intersected them over targets in England
[02:17:30] <pfred1> it wasn't very global in its reach
[02:18:24] <pfred1> well if they pull off this crazy landing tomorrow it is going to be a big deal
[02:18:46] <pfred1> the Martians will be suitably impressed

[02:19:37] <pfred1> I wonder if they're going to pull the old rover team off to run it?
[02:19:47] <pfred1> they sure have plenty of experience by now
[02:20:11] <pfred1> Spirit I think is still operational
[02:21:21] <pfred1> the new rover is nuclear powered
[02:21:56] <Tom_itx> so one wrong move and mars may not be there tomorrow?
[02:22:17] <pfred1> nah I doubt the thing has enough energy to heat up a pot for tea
[02:22:40] <pfred1> it isn't like it has a fission reactor on board it
[02:23:10] <pfred1> something more like a really long term battery
[02:24:12] <pfred1> I was looking at a lithium battery today it has a date on it of 2026 for shelf life
[02:25:14] <pfred1> sounds like awfully far in the future but I guess not today
[02:25:44] <pfred1> I want to change all of my multimeters over to lithium batteries
[02:31:41] <jdh> when my multimeter batteries die, I throw them away.

[03:03:10] <andy_mac> anyone here?
[03:03:26] * jdh looks around.
[03:04:00] <andy_mac> hey... haven't gotten any replies last few times i've been on.
[03:04:47] <andy_mac> trying to figure out a configuration issue I'm having with my cnc that I made
[03:05:18] <Skullworks> and...
[03:05:45] <andy_mac> the program always runs faster than where the machine actually is. I'm not sure what things I need to look at to fix this problem
[03:05:48] <pfred1> it has been too hot here to work on my CMC
[03:05:52] <pfred1> CNC even
[03:06:32] <jdh> faster or further?
[03:07:03] <andy_mac> faster
[03:07:19] <pfred1> stepper?
[03:07:23] <andy_mac> yes
[03:07:36] <jdh> I don't think I understand the problem/question.
[03:07:39] <pfred1> you have your step rate right?
[03:07:48] <pfred1> like 1/2 or 1/4
[03:08:11] <pfred1> that would put you in the wrong position too
[03:08:35] <Skullworks> I think he means that Linux CNC is reading several lines of code ahead of what the machine is cutting.
[03:08:41] <pfred1> oh
[03:08:53] <pfred1> isn't it supposed to?
[03:08:59] <Skullworks> or am I in Left field?
[03:09:07] <andy_mac> no, I think my machine just is too slow so it's never where he program thinks it should be
[03:09:12] <Skullworks> yeah - it does...
[03:09:33] <pfred1> that is how it does trajectory planning
[03:09:42] <jdh> if you go in MDI and tell it to move X 10units, does it do so properly?
[03:09:51] <andy_mac> the end mill never gets the the correct cutting position though
[03:10:01] <andy_mac> it's always some fraction of where it should be
[03:10:04] <pfred1> so you're losing steps?
[03:10:16] <jdh> that sounds like your scale is wrong
[03:10:19] <Skullworks> ah - loosing steps or a scale error
[03:10:37] <pfred1> hey scale was my first guess!
[03:10:48] <andy_mac> possibly loosing steps, but scale is correct, that was my first thought
[03:10:56] <pfred1> but having the machine too high a top speed could be a problem too
[03:11:12] <pfred1> accel could be too high
[03:11:18] <jdh> or wrong step/dir pulse width
[03:11:34] <pfred1> when mine was wrong it just wouldn't run
[03:11:39] <andy_mac> is there a way to test that?
[03:11:41] <pfred1> the pulse width
[03:11:45] <andy_mac> yeah
[03:12:02] <pfred1> one of my drivers is really fussy about that I don't know why
[03:12:30] <jdh> check the specs for your driver, set it slightly higher than that.
[03:12:44] <pfred1> mine will run right on the line but not over it
[03:12:45] <jdh> or for testing, set it 2 or 3 times higher
[03:13:07] <pfred1> or under it rather

[03:13:31] <pfred1> but i was getting really malformed waveforms out of my machine when I went under too
[03:13:42] <pfred1> like my computer machine
[03:14:00] <pfred1> I had an oscilloscope hooked up to it
[03:14:50] <pfred1> I never did get to the bottom of what was going on there
[03:14:54] <andy_mac> ok, I think I've got a few things to go check now i guess. Thanks for the help. I'm sure I'll be back...
[03:15:18] <pfred1> I just set it to 5000ns and called it a day

[04:29:04] <andy_mac> going back to my config file and testing the axes, I get 1/4 the distance I expect. A +-1in test area moves the axis only 1/4in... which settings should I recheck?
[04:30:10] <r00t4rd3d> microstep
[04:30:28] <r00t4rd3d> what controller are you using?
[04:31:16] -!- null_radix has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
[04:31:42] <andy_mac> not quite sure... got it from a friend. Is there a way to find out the right info without the spec sheet?
[04:31:52] <r00t4rd3d> whats it look like?
[04:32:02] <r00t4rd3d> just a circuit board?
[04:32:41] <r00t4rd3d> http://reprap.org/mediawiki/images/e/e9/TB6560.jpg
[04:32:43] <r00t4rd3d> look like that ?
[04:32:46] <andy_mac> it's a NEMA 17 12V Bipolar, but don't know anything else
[04:33:15] <andy_mac> no
[04:33:45] <r00t4rd3d> cant help with out know what controller you have
[04:33:50] <r00t4rd3d> take a pic of it
[04:34:02] <andy_mac> k
[04:34:54] <r00t4rd3d> but when you test your axis does decreasing the acceleration or velocity help at all?
[04:36:46] <r00t4rd3d> and what is your maximum velocity and acceleration set at?
[04:37:12] <pfred1> you're not running it at 12 volts are you?
[04:37:41] * pfred1 is the gawd of TB6560s!
[04:37:52] <r00t4rd3d> he doesnt have one
[04:37:56] <pfred1> oh
[04:38:19] <pfred1> since when did rep crap get in with 6560s?
[04:38:28] <andy_mac> no, accel doesn't seem to do anything and vel just makes it slower
[04:38:32] <pfred1> did you know their software is Java?
[04:38:46] <r00t4rd3d> andy_mac, what are the numbers they are set at
[04:39:12] <andy_mac> max vel is set at 0.4 in/sec, accel is 30in/s^2
[04:39:22] <pfred1> sounds reasonable
[04:39:36] <r00t4rd3d> whats driver microstepping set at?
[04:39:55] <andy_mac> looks like the controller is using l293d chip, i'll go try to find my camera again
[04:40:01] <pfred1> where did you get your stepper driver from?
[04:40:12] <pfred1> ah that only does full and half stepping
[04:40:17] <r00t4rd3d> "friend"
[04:40:23] <pfred1> you want it set at half stepping too
[04:40:41] <andy_mac> I don't know, my friend got this kit and couldn't put it together, so I did it for him... lol. yeah
[04:40:44] <pfred1> full stepping is just plain weird in my experneice with it
[04:41:05] <pfred1> set it half on the drive and in the software
[04:42:09] <pfred1> oh and always mess with the drive powered down
[04:42:21] <pfred1> never change anything with it powered up
[04:42:35] <pfred1> bad things might happen
[04:42:40] <andy_mac> ok
[04:43:05] <pfred1> once you git it all setup you'll never mess with it ever again but until you do power the drive itself down
[04:43:12] <r00t4rd3d> so make sure Driver Microstepping is set to 2.0
[04:43:36] <pfred1> I blew up a drive once not powering it down
[04:43:42] <pfred1> not worth taking the chance
[04:45:40] <pfred1> in full step mode most stepper drivers resonate a lot
[04:45:49] <pfred1> this makes them not run so good
[04:46:57] <r00t4rd3d> my machine shits at 1/8 or 1/16
[04:47:01] <pfred1> half stepping is much smoother
[04:47:14] <r00t4rd3d> 1/2 it runs great
[04:47:25] <pfred1> yeah half isn't a bad mode all things considered
[04:47:33] <pfred1> it works
[04:47:46] <pfred1> full if it works is usually really jerky
[04:47:56] <andy_mac> if the stepper is supposed to be 1.8degree step angle, then motor steps per rev should be 200?
[04:48:06] <pfred1> 400 with half stepping
[04:48:28] <pfred1> half stepping will double the steps per rev
[04:48:29] <r00t4rd3d> really?
[04:48:33] <pfred1> sure
[04:48:42] <pfred1> that is what makes it half stepping
[04:48:43] <r00t4rd3d> i think iam set to 200 still
[04:48:57] <r00t4rd3d> what would that do?
[04:48:57] <pfred1> each step is only half a step
[04:49:08] <pfred1> make you move twice as far as you should
[04:49:12] <pfred1> messes yoru scale up
[04:49:19] <r00t4rd3d> :/
[04:49:31] <r00t4rd3d> I must be at 400 then cause it dont do that
[04:49:53] <pfred1> stepconf I think automatically figures it out for you
[04:50:06] <pfred1> if you put in the right mode and motor poles
[04:50:23] <r00t4rd3d> nope, im at 2.0 micro and 200 steps per rev
[04:50:31] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.georgegardner.info/software/tb6560-ebay-3-axis-driver-and-linuxcnc-emc.html
[04:50:36] <r00t4rd3d> i followed that guide
[04:50:53] <pfred1> I built my own TB6560 drivers
[04:51:04] <pfred1> so I know the IC inside and out
[04:51:48] <r00t4rd3d> what if im at 2.0 and 200 ms and my machine works fine?
[04:51:51] <pfred1> those chinese boards from what I've seen of them aren't entirely optimal they're not bad though
[04:52:37] <pfred1> the documentation they come with is dismal
[04:52:51] <pfred1> you'll never understand how your drivers work just reading it
[04:52:57] <andy_mac> 200 just makes the stepper not work. Seems to only work with 50 motor steps per rev... guess it's not a 1.8degree step angle
[04:53:17] <r00t4rd3d> step degree angle, forgot about it
[04:53:19] <pfred1> nema 17 it might not be 200
[04:53:32] <r00t4rd3d> has nothing to do with it
[04:55:03] <r00t4rd3d> http://wiki.zentoolworks.com/index.php/Morgan%27s_EMC2_Config_for_TB6560_driver
[04:55:19] <r00t4rd3d> another setup, he uses 1/16, steps still set at 200
[04:56:45] <pfred1> stepconf figures out your scale based on your steps mode and lead pitch
[04:56:53] <andy_mac> 200 and 0.5 seems to give me the right distance
[04:57:46] <andy_mac> although his -x seems to be loosing some distance so the test drifts in +x
[04:58:10] <andy_mac> think there's a coupling issue now
[04:58:24] <pfred1> yes I suspect it could be mechanical
[04:59:05] <pfred1> you said earlier the motors are rated for 12V right?
[04:59:44] <pfred1> you're not really running them at 12V are you?
[05:00:55] <r00t4rd3d> he has them hot wired to his car battery
[05:01:15] <pfred1> well at only 12V you're going to get crappy performance
[05:01:56] <andy_mac> looks like they're getting ~10V according to my meter
[05:01:58] <pfred1> r00t4rd3d ever see my motor in action?
[05:02:10] <r00t4rd3d> no
[05:02:30] <pfred1> andy_mac I think the l293 is a chopper drive
[05:02:39] <pfred1> r00t4rd3d http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fHPKaHLzXes
[05:02:56] <pfred1> I'm only running at 24V

[05:03:43] <r00t4rd3d> yeah i did see that awhile ago
[05:03:52] <Skullworks> L297/L298 is a full/half step chopper
[05:04:06] <pfred1> good to what 34V right?

[05:04:39] <Skullworks> 34V is pushing the upper limit IIRC
[05:04:55] <pfred1> well I'd still run it higher than 10V
[05:05:34] <pfred1> andy_mac you need to run higher voltage if you want any performance
[05:05:53] <pfred1> andy_mac with stepper drivers they limit current voltage doesn't matter
[05:06:19] <pfred1> well voltage matters but not how you think it would
[05:06:54] <pfred1> man i think i need to go skinny dipping

[05:07:14] <andy_mac> ok, guess I can tackle that problem later...
[05:07:22] <taiden> late night cnc?
[05:07:27] <andy_mac> I'll deal with crappy performance if I can just get it working
[05:07:34] <pfred1> yeah you're going to get dismal performance until you up the voltage you're running at
[05:07:49] <pfred1> it has to do with inductance
[05:07:58] <taiden> is there a way to call home function from gcode?
[05:08:15] <andy_mac> same settings don't work for the y-axis...
[05:08:29] <Skullworks> Are you really using a L293 - I think those are only rated as 1A max per coil.
[05:08:31] <pfred1> make sure that drive is set correctly
[05:08:46] <taiden> i'd like to home x and y in the middle of some code just to be safe
[05:08:51] <pfred1> Skullworks they said they have nema 17 motors
[05:09:11] <Skullworks> OK
[05:09:30] <pfred1> 1 amp is about the upper limit on that frame
[05:10:03] <Skullworks> I bought a 10 pack of 17's to build a pair of PRUSA's
[05:10:31] <Skullworks> been to busy to get much farther with that
[05:10:38] <pfred1> what drivers did you use pololus?
[05:11:08] <andy_mac> yep, the controllers have L293D's on them
[05:12:08] <pfred1> andy_mac full stepping is whacky run all half step
[05:12:30] <Skullworks> thats the plan - but I may make a driver card - has all the driver chips in a row so I can fit one big heatsink bar.

[05:13:15] <pfred1> I thought they were landing this morning?
[05:13:22] <pfred1> like at 10:30
[05:13:26] <r00t4rd3d> 130am
[05:13:27] <r00t4rd3d> esty
[05:13:35] <pfred1> oh really?
[05:13:51] <pfred1> I donno if i can watch
[05:14:07] <r00t4rd3d> no live video of it
[05:14:13] <Skullworks> aim Hubble for live coverage...
[05:14:13] <pfred1> they better not plant this one in the dirt
[05:14:25] <r00t4rd3d> actually landing , telemetry only
[05:14:40] <pfred1> well even live is what 11 minute delay?
[05:15:01] <pfred1> I heard they were having troubles with the relay satelite on Mars too
[05:15:06] <r00t4rd3d> i want it to blow up and kill a martian
[05:15:09] <pfred1> it is some antique we put there years ago

[05:17:01] <andy_mac> For the driver type, I should be ok choosing the L297 right?
[05:17:02] <pfred1> I think i need ot go land in my pool for a while here
[05:17:46] <Skullworks> dude - software companies were outsourcing software jobs to the Soviet space agency folks who were dying for anything to do...
[05:17:49] <pfred1> andy_mac there is a place for that in stepconf?

[05:19:14] <pfred1> shame if it hits the planet at that speed and is only a curiosity for ever after
[05:19:39] <r00t4rd3d> im sure it has parachutes
[05:19:56] <tjb1> it does
[05:20:06] <tjb1> Largest one ever used
[05:20:07] <pfred1> heck it has 3 55 pound weights it is going to drop

[05:20:31] <tjb1> specifically - http://cdn.theatlantic.com/static/infocus/msl112511/s_m03_328234ma.jpg
[05:20:35] <r00t4rd3d> i guess there may be pictures tonight sometime
[05:20:42] <pfred1> imagine what sending those weights into space cost at like $2,500 a pound
[05:21:50] <pfred1> $412,500 they're just going to throw it away
[05:22:06] <Skullworks> yeah - its not the price of the object - its the shipping that bleeds you...
[05:22:07] <tjb1> It can examine rocks 23' away with its laser and telescope
[05:22:23] <pfred1> Skullworks I bet they're really nice weights though
[05:22:50] <tjb1> I wonder what they went through before they came up with the skycrane
[05:23:10] <Skullworks> the finest Fe someone could want I bet

[05:25:14] <L84Supper> wow, it looks more cartoon like than video! Is that due to the Martian atmosphere?
[05:25:22] <tjb1> No thats a simulation

[05:25:47] <r00t4rd3d> i hope you are drunk or were joking
[05:25:51] <tjb1> What happened to the simulation?
[05:26:08] <L84Supper> all those people are simulated?
[05:26:34] <andy_mac> If my steppers appear to be the same, shouldn't I have the same settings for each axis? Can't figure out my y axis...
[05:26:39] <tjb1> Yes, they are previewing it to see how people respond before they air the real thing
[05:28:07] <tjb1> They are going to try/already did to get a picture of it landing with the HiRISE
[05:28:44] <tjb1> I think it has already landed…arent the communications 14 minutes behind?
[05:29:05] <pfred1> easy 14 minutes delay
[05:29:17] <tjb1> so it could have already crashed lol
[05:29:31] <pfred1> what dops clap when it is wheels down
[05:30:09] <tjb1> That simulation is pretty slow for nasa...
[05:30:12] <tjb1> Its laggy as hell
[05:31:41] <tjb1> Its at 100 mph
[05:32:08] <tjb1> skycrane active
[05:32:21] <tjb1> down to 1 mph
[05:32:34] <tjb1> touchdown
[05:32:56] <pfred1> yeah lets see a picture fro mit
[05:33:14] <tjb1> They were 1 minute off in landing time

[05:37:16] <tjb1> there is hi-res
[05:37:19] <andy_mac> so my y axis is still only moving at 1/2 the distance it should... changing the motor steps per rev and microstepping to the x & z axis values makes the y axis stepper stop working. anything else to investigate as to why it's not working?
[05:37:22] <L84Supper> does this one have auto windex spray and wiper?

[12:24:30] <micges> awallin: something like production line in factory? 24/7 same production?
[12:24:41] <cpresser> awallin: i think i would implement that as hal-userspace-component
[12:24:59] <cpresser> one could write a 'compiler' which translates VHDL to HAL
[12:25:07] <cpresser> or use classic-ladder

[22:37:08] <Connor> Okay Guys. Made a special config for my mill to work as a lathe.. that's good.. Now.. having issues trying to figure out tool offsets etc..
[22:37:27] <Connor> For my operation.. I'll be using a Left and Right hand tool.
[22:38:05] <Connor> because I'm making a part with square shoulders. the problem is switching to the LH tool.. the cutting point isn't in the same place...
[22:38:11] <Connor> how do I fix that?
[22:39:10] <andypugh> The tool table has an "orientation" entry.
[22:39:22] <Connor> right. Got that figured out. Q1 and Q2
[22:39:28] <andypugh> Does your config declare itself as a lathe?
[22:39:36] <Connor> Does now. yes.
[22:41:10] <Connor> I thought setting Z+ in the tool table for the offset would do it..
[22:41:28] <Connor> which I issue the tool change commands it flips the cutter point around on screen correctly..
[22:41:50] <Connor> when I issue.. I mean.

[22:43:46] <jthornton> my tutorial
[22:43:53] <Connor> jdh: Okay.. Yea.. that's the insert I'm using.. Except mine is flush.
[22:44:07] -!- Nick001-Shop [Nick001-Shop!~chatzilla@] has joined #linuxcnc
[22:44:57] <Connor> Doesn't make much difference.. but, the Z should control the point from left to right correct?
[22:45:34] <Connor> maybe my code isn't doing the G43 command ...
[22:46:14] <Connor> headed back to the shop. I'll login into IRC from it.

[23:42:37] <jthornton> one is just a glade tutorial the other one is for making a custom gui for linuxcnc

[23:43:53] <jthornton> in the link?
[23:43:59] <Tom_itx> yeah
[23:44:04] <jthornton> you don't include it you install it
[23:44:09] <Tom_itx> i was looking at that earlier
[23:44:14] <Tom_itx> from the package manager?
[23:44:41] <jthornton> in a terminal
[23:45:06] <jthornton> ah you got glade

[23:45:24] <Tom_itx> glade 3.5.7 is installed already
[23:45:32] <Tom_itx> 3.6.7
[23:45:34] <jthornton> too many windows open
[23:45:49] <Tom_itx> too many monitors
[23:46:16] <Connor> okay, I'm getting there....
[23:46:20] <jthornton> I think you should just have it if you installed 2.5
[23:46:25] <Tom_itx> all i have are HAL python and emc actions over the standard oens
[23:46:25] <Tom_itx> ones*
[23:46:33] <Connor> My part has a 45 degree angle on one of the shoulders.. it's not suppose to have that..
[23:46:37] <jthornton> yea you got it
[23:47:11] <Tom_itx> so how do i enable it?
[23:47:20] <jthornton> enable what?
[23:47:22] <Connor> I thought I coded around it by making a tool change and switching to the other handed tool.. but.. I guess my measurements were off, because it barely took off the angle.
[23:47:34] <Tom_itx> the gladevcp icons in glade
[23:47:44] <jthornton> I thought you said you have them
[23:47:58] <Tom_itx> i have glade 3.6.7 and linuxcnc 2.5
[23:48:05] <Tom_itx> all i have are HAL python and emc actions over the standard oens
[23:48:12] <jthornton> that's them
[23:48:26] <Tom_itx> i don't see the backplot
[23:48:28] <Connor> Also getting awful chatter on that middle cut...
[23:49:04] <Tom_itx> oh maybe it's hal graph?
[23:49:13] <jthornton> no

[23:53:39] <Connor> anyone ? jdh? :)
[23:54:17] <jthornton> code?
[23:54:31] <Connor> My Gcode for it ?
[23:54:42] <Connor> crap, it's on the mill.
[23:55:00] <jthornton> yep
[23:56:09] <Tom_itx> jthornton you didn't tell me there was part 2
[23:56:30] <jthornton> you didn't ask?
[23:56:41] <jthornton> I'm working on part 3
[23:56:41] <Jymmm> I was just gonna say that
[23:56:44] <Tom_itx> they look rather similar
[23:57:19] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: you tutorial racist bastard!
[23:57:24] <Connor> http://www.ivdc.com/cnc/mill/top_hat.txt
[23:57:26] <jthornton> yes, they follow the same format but end in a different place
[23:58:14] <Connor> there is the gcode.
[23:58:40] <jthornton> 545 lines to make that part?
[23:59:03] <Connor> I didn't hand code it... I cammed it.. and was taking light cuts.
[23:59:05] <Connor> why?
[23:59:36] <jthornton> light cuts are not always good
[23:59:39] <Connor> and I'm turning down 1.5" CRS to 1.19 or so "
