[16:39:54] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> you will get faster
[16:40:13] <ScribbleJ> I swear to god, I designed the whole fucking thing, I was down to the last part, and only then did I realize it's impossible to assemble because a bolthead is inbetween two parts that need to be attached to each other.
[16:40:37] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> I always assemble as i design
[16:40:55] <archivist> you need that reality to teach you about design :)

[20:08:50] <Connor> jdh: OMG Yea.. I'm not doing that..
[20:09:54] <syyl_> i bet, thats the cutting speed in inch/minute, skorket
[20:10:05] <skorket> ah, ok, sorry, the data in the table is the 'chip load'. I still don't understand what the other stuff is
[20:10:12] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> so i have been programming now for about 3 months in python and a year in C, and i am wondering. Why does everyone just use letter's for variables all the time?
[20:10:23] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> it really makes it hard for someone to go through the porgram
[20:10:26] <skunkworks> lazy
[20:10:31] <skorket> syyl_, ah, so the upper left hand corner is basically the feed rate?
[20:10:34] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> i label all my variables what they are actually doing
[20:10:38] <syyl_> no, cutting speed
[20:10:43] <syyl_> surface meter(?)
[20:10:47] <syyl_> dont now the english term
[20:10:57] <syyl_> circumflexe speed of the cutting edge

[20:11:14] <skunkworks> the lanquage I started with didn't allow for multi character varables... For I = 1 to 100....
[20:11:38] <jdh> I'm a fan of i,j,k
[20:11:41] <skorket> syyl_, I think we're saying the same thing. "feed rate" == "speed of tool through material"
[20:12:12] <syyl_> it dictates how fast the tool turns
[20:12:25] <syyl_> (or has to turn)
[20:12:42] <skorket> revolutions per minute (RPM)?
[20:12:55] <syyl_> the table seems to be in inches/min
[20:13:03] <syyl_> take the formular at the end of the sheet
[20:13:07] <syyl_> to calculate the rpms
[20:13:45] <syyl_> uhm, stop, that formular is something..strange
[20:14:00] <skorket> but I still don't know what the numbers in the upper left hand table or, nor do I know what the "series" column is supposed to represent
[20:14:29] <syyl_> series might be a specified tool type of that manufacturer
[20:14:39] <skorket> ah, ok
[20:15:59] <syyl_> and that values in the upper table seem to be the cutting speed in inches/min
[20:16:14] <skorket> as in, the speed at which the bit moves through the material?
[20:16:47] <syyl_> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speeds_and_feeds#Cutting_speed
[20:17:15] <syyl_> ah, surface feet/min is the imperial unit for it..
[20:17:58] <skorket> yeah, I believe this is synonymous with "feed rate"
[20:18:02] <syyl_> no
[20:18:04] <jdh> surface furlongs/fort-night was too confusing
[20:18:06] <syyl_> absolutely not
[20:18:25] <syyl_> feed rate is rpm * chipload per tooth +
[20:18:34] <syyl_> feed rate is rpm * chipload per tooth * number of tooth
[20:19:24] <syyl_> the cutting speed is only there, that you will not burn up your tool running it with to low/high rpm
[20:21:07] <skorket> ah, my apologies, I thought the feed rate was something different. In grbl you can set the feed rate and seek rate. I thought the feed rate in that context was the speed at which the bit moves through the material. Maybe I misunderstood what was happening with grbl or maybe they just use the name in error

[20:46:07] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> a double ended HSS endmill $36.00
[20:46:11] <r00t4rd3d> ill run jobs for you
[20:46:15] <Connor> jdh: Sounded fine. I tried it dry, WD-40 and some other cutting oil I had.
[20:48:08] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> i love when people come running over when i cut through a piece of 1018 3/4 thick steel in one pass with a .5 insert end mill saying "that doesn't sound good", my response its only noise
[20:49:19] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> ink: I could quote you on some machining if needed
[20:50:23] <ink> I don't suppose you're in the SF bay area? shipping large sheets of plywood around could get expensive
[20:50:44] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> True
[20:51:05] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> build a router :)
[20:51:10] <ink> I really should :)
[20:51:19] <ink> gotta stop slacking and get on that
[20:51:51] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> nothing beats, thinking something up and being able to actually make it
[20:52:18] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> i take that back, im sure there are things that beat that i can think of a few
[20:52:26] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> but its still cool
[20:52:44] <r00t4rd3d> i like starting with a blank white page in PaintShop Pro and it ends up on wood.
[20:53:01] <ink> WillenCMD_AT_Wor: totally :)
[20:53:31] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> are you sure your not getting wood?

[20:56:28] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> Why are there still grocery stores any way? take a large building, cut out half the employee's, build a website, people pick out groceries online, purchase and are given a time for available pick up. Pull up and load them into your car
[20:58:00] <WillenCMD_AT_Wor> track there common purchases and hell before you know it, you only have to pick out the few misc seasonal or on sale items your list is already there

[23:14:36] <guest45674> trying to set up user defined m codes to open and close my collet closer. i set up the execuable file, seems to be correct. however, the pins to not change when i try the m100 and m101 in mdi
[23:15:06] <guest45674> the pins used to work fine when i had a pyvcp button hooked up
[23:16:11] <guest45674> all examples i found are for parport setups, is there anything different for hosmot2 other than changing the pin to the 5i20 gpio pin?

[23:19:39] <guest45674t> sorry got booted
[23:19:54] <guest45674t> did anyone answer while i was gone?
[23:19:57] <r00t4rd3d> nope
[23:19:58] <jdh> nope.
[23:20:21] <jdh> if you run the script by hand, does it do anything?
[23:20:52] <jdh> run linuxcnc from the command line and look for errors? check dmesg for oddities?
[23:21:03] <guest45674t> im not very familiar with running scripts
[23:21:48] <jdh> where did you save them?
[23:22:49] <jdh> start linuxcnc however you normally do. open up a terminal window, type /path/to/scripts/scriptname

[23:40:02] <guest45674t> http://pastebin.com/zWxigENf
[23:40:13] <guest45674t> there's one of the files
[23:40:31] <guest45674t> does it have to be saved as a particular extension?
[23:40:54] <guest45674t> i have it checked as an execuable in the properties
[23:41:08] <jdh> no, but I think you need the actual pin names
[23:41:18] <jdh> or, you need to source the ini file in the script.
[23:42:25] <jdh> try hm2_5i20.0.gpio.069.out or whatever your actual pin name is

[23:44:20] <guest45674t> didnt think of that... couldnt find any examples with the 5i20, only parport
[23:45:11] <JT-Shop> guest45674t: I use a 5i20 to open and close my collet
[23:45:27] <jdh> via mcode script, or ladder?

[23:46:41] <guest45674t> you were right jdh
[23:46:54] <guest45674t> thanks!
[23:46:58] <jdh> groovy.
[23:47:43] <guest45674t> now i just need to figure out how to integrate it with my pyvcp buttons
[23:47:51] <guest45674t> so i can manually open and close it too
[23:47:52] <JT-Shop> use or
[23:47:58] <JT-Shop> it's what I do
[23:48:32] <JT-Shop> net collet-open-btn or2.3.in0 <= hm2_5i20.0.gpio.027.in_not
[23:48:35] <guest45674t> the m codes override the button?
[23:49:12] <JT-Shop> I use or iirc looking

[23:51:29] <JT-Shop> but it works
[23:51:48] <guest45674t> got it, i'll play with it after i run these parts, thanks!
[23:51:55] <JT-Shop> np
[23:52:02] <Tom_itx> workin late?
[23:52:19] <JT-Shop> me?
[23:52:27] <Tom_itx> yeah

[23:52:54] <Tom_itx> ahh yeah
[23:53:25] <JT-Shop> cut the wires from the encoders so it's Katy bar the door now
