[01:00:40] <L84Supper> i wish the stroke was longer
[01:01:40] <FinboySlick> It's pretty funky, I didn't know they made 'em that kind of fancy.
[01:01:59] <L84Supper> thinking of fun applications for them

[01:04:10] <L84Supper> searching for lead/ball screw positioners and came across them
[01:06:01] <L84Supper> FinboySlick, habanero stuffed fillets?
[01:06:41] <FinboySlick> L84Supper: Did you ever have memleak take a peek at buidroot.net? And almost... I fell in love with Peppermaster products and I found that their FusionFire sauce is perfect for marinating filet-mignon.
[01:07:23] <FinboySlick> It has habanero, scotch bonnet and a few other mean ones in there, but unlike a lot of hot sauces, it *tastes*.
[01:08:34] <jdh> seems cruel to marinate a filet
[01:08:52] <FinboySlick> jdh: Well, I don't really dip 'em.
[01:09:17] <FinboySlick> Just some fruity stuff on top so as to create a nice charred surface.
[01:09:22] <L84Supper> FinboySlick, he mostly builds his own tool chains now
[01:09:52] <FinboySlick> L84Supper: OK.
[01:10:33] <L84Supper> hmm just picturing a grill-press
[01:11:13] <FinboySlick> L84Supper: See, now that's something you could actuate with those push-pull cables.

[03:29:37] <skorket> I was hoping to get some advice about a project. Hope you don't mind that it's not linuxcnc specific. I was considering building my own toaster with individually addressable heating elements lined up in a line so that you could make "printable" toast. Here is an example: http://dornob.com/serial-toasters-and-creative-toast-printing-gadgets/?ref=search
[03:30:10] <skorket> Though you could attach a heater as a head to a cnc, I would prefer doing it by making 16 or so elements that you heat as the toast passes through
[03:30:46] <skorket> Would g-code be appropriate to control the heating elements individually? Does anyone have suggestions on how to do this?

[03:51:21] <Valen> skorket: I would suggest that its perhaps not the best method of achieving actual toast
[03:51:49] <Valen> it'll be all crispy on the outside and cold inside
[03:52:19] <Valen> Perhaps a pre-toasting element could be added to get the bulk toast up to temp, then finish it off with yer elements
[03:52:30] <Valen> also what your doing is exactly how thermal printers work
[03:52:54] <Valen> I'd say that gcode is probably not really what your after for a control scheme
[03:53:21] <skorket> Valen, that's what I figured, but I thought I'd ask
[03:53:45] <Valen> you could potentially do so
[03:53:54] <skorket> I also thought of trying to create actual toasted toast then do the print afterwards...
[03:53:55] <Valen> but EMC is limited to 9 axies and you want 17
[03:54:39] <skorket> There's no facility to send 'arbitrary data' to a tool somehow through gcode?
[03:55:15] <Valen> you could, but whats the point really
[03:55:25] <Valen> your only going to be controlling 1 axis?
[03:55:32] <Valen> the toast feed
[03:58:35] -!- Thetawaves has quit [Quit: This computer has gone to sleep]
[03:58:55] <skorket> well, no, controlling the heating elements
[03:59:21] <skorket> I mean, more generally, what if you wanted to use gcode to control a printer?
[04:09:03] <Valen> I'd say its not ideally suited to it, but one could do it

[04:33:41] <KimK> But the *really* important question is: Will there be an M-code to change from toast to Pop-Tarts?
[04:35:28] <skorket> What facility would you use?

[05:27:33] <Valen> are you wanting to "hack" it or do it right?
[05:27:47] <Valen> if hacking is an option I'd look at re purposing a thermal printer
[05:28:20] <Valen> IE pull the brains from that, add some line drivers perhaps and your going to have a few hundred lines of resolution
[05:35:19] <r00t4rd3d> just use a laser

[05:39:23] <Valen> depends on how long you want it to take
[05:39:46] <Valen> I'd wager a blueray laser would suffice
[05:40:11] <Jymmm> What you have is a dot matrix printer using heat instead of ink.... the bread/paper moves along in one axis, and the print head/heat gun in the other axis.

[05:40:31] <Valen> works more like a thermal printer than a dot matrix

[06:37:15] <tjb1> Why is mold ap roblem with laser cutting bread?
[06:39:01] <KimK> Oh, I missed that, did it say that in one of the videos? Maybe because of too much fiddling around with the bread instead of leaving it in the plastic bag or paper sack?
[06:39:31] <tjb1> Jymmm said it
[06:40:06] <Jymmm> tjb1: because the bread molds
[06:40:10] <Jymmm> DUH
[06:40:38] <KimK> Ah, OK. (I'd be more worried about setting the bread on fire, lol, as in that video where they kept retracing and retracing the cursive script!)

[07:02:48] <KimK> Hi Jymmm, what's happening in your part of the world? How much is gas(oline) there now?
[07:03:16] <Jymmm> $3.99/gal for regular as if today when I filled up.
[07:03:23] <Jymmm> s/if/of/
[07:03:43] <KimK> OK, well, that's better than I expected for California lately.
[07:04:04] <Jymmm> I got lucky and only paid $3.09/gal though =)
[07:04:30] <Jymmm> I had a 90¢ off per gallon think.
[07:04:38] <Jymmm> thing
[07:04:59] <KimK> Even better. I'll mark Jymmm down as fortunate, especially since there wasn't a "No Gas Today" sign.
[07:05:12] <Jymmm> where?
[07:05:36] <KimK> He had gas, you had money. It's a win-win!
[07:06:33] <Jymmm> oh, heh. I missed the "wasn't"; I thught you said there WAS a no gas today sign.
[07:07:35] <Jymmm> Yeah, it a grocery store thing.... you spend so much in groceries in a month and you get up to $1/off per gallon that you can use one time that/next month.
[07:08:16] <Jymmm> I saved $25 today
[07:08:40] <Jymmm> Had I remembered to bring my 2 5gal cans, it would have been more =)
[07:08:45] <KimK> Excellent! And great to hear that the gas spigot is still open in Cali... (cue opening notes of the "Jaws" theme...)
[07:09:33] <Jymmm> KimK: I have no idea what you are talking about http://i50.tinypic.com/2n0kf4n.jpg
[07:10:05] <Jymmm> KimK: Not a clue at all http://i45.tinypic.com/2119mpt.jpg
[07:13:03] <KimK> Yikes! Where were those taken?
[07:13:11] <Jymmm> lol
[07:13:48] <Jymmm> the shark in front of the house was today on the East Coast
[07:14:30] <Jymmm> The one indoors was a ways back at an aquarium tank in India that burst iirc
[07:15:19] <KimK> I hope that Mayor Bloomberg said that sharks over 32 ounces are not allowed inside the city limits?
[07:16:06] <KimK> I've been fiddling around trying to teach myself FreeCAD. Slow going, but I'm gettting closer to my desired 3-D doodad: http://imagebin.org/233838
[07:16:47] <Jymmm> cool!
[07:18:27] <KimK> They are supposed to be working on a CNC CAM plug-in for it, no telling when it will be ready to demonstrate. It's all kind of preliminary still, I think, but improving. It's usable with some workarounds and gotchas.

[16:23:55] <jdh> heh, I was looking at that one this morning
[16:23:59] <r00t4rd3d> tom3p, its a kanji Life symbol.

[16:25:11] <mutilator> yea, recommend it?
[16:25:29] <jdh> no clue. it's the right size and 60-degrees
[16:25:37] <mutilator> aye

[17:14:29] <jdh> I don't think the switch was strictly for PP. They were generally used for serial here.

[17:49:21] <pcw_home> Yes it does
[17:49:58] <jdh> so, I'm out of luck switching a PP between a 7i43 and another machines breakout board
[17:50:35] <jdh> or, disconnect the frame, leave pin 1 tied to the 7i43 port and don't use pin1 on the other one
[17:52:46] <pcw_home> With a parallel port switch it should be possible
[17:52:48] <pcw_home> what you dont want is no GND between the PC ind the 7I43 or breakout and the first
[17:52:50] <pcw_home> connection between them being a signal pin when you switch (so all leakage/gnd difference/ESD goes through that signal pin)

[20:37:32] <cradek> and no I'm not saying that on the list
[20:38:04] <cradek> yes unless you have a very solid fixture to hold the flange, you simply can't tighten it correctly

[20:40:45] <cradek> ... which is obviously not going to work (I admit I've done it with 1/8" tools, but you're not going to get much force on that)

[20:42:27] <cradek> I bought a bunch of these and they are superb
[20:42:49] <andypugh> They presumably bore them deliberately off centre then?
[20:43:15] <cradek> the hole is so close that if you have a knob on it, when you push a good end mill in it will pop back out from the air pressure
[20:43:31] <cradek> yes I suspect the hole is slightly off center, but I don't know for sure
[20:46:04] <cradek> I guess in theory you might get better concentricity from a collet, but I'd believe it when I see it
[20:47:04] <cradek> if you need better, you oughta go to shrink fit I bet

[23:10:37] <Valen> it sounds like a tool post grinder and much checking is a common method of boring spindles

[23:33:01] <r00t4rd3d> where did you get the igs file from?
[23:33:12] <andypugh> Looks like I can do IGES to stl
[23:33:22] <Valen> most cad packages can

[23:37:47] <andypugh> Hmm, I get faces, but no solid body.
[23:37:54] <andypugh> I am not sure how to convert.
[23:38:49] <Valen> i don't believe iges gives you solids
[23:42:14] <andypugh> I think "auto stich and promote" was the magic incantation
[23:42:23] <Valen> what package?
[23:42:28] <andypugh> jdh: File transfer?

[23:50:22] <Valen> I wonder about using hydraulics
[23:50:37] <jd896> Is Andy p around ?
[23:50:53] <andypugh> If the hydaulics fails, you drop the tool...
[23:51:20] <andypugh> And you need rotating seals.
[23:51:24] <r00t4rd3d> jd896, nope!
[23:51:35] <andypugh> jd896: Any particualr Andy P?
[23:52:20] <jd896> Should have waited before asking ey
[23:52:34] <r00t4rd3d> no not at all
[23:53:19] <jd896> Andy am I right in thinking you have one of your machines pc powered with a pico psu ?
[23:53:51] <andypugh> Yes. Two of them in fact
[23:54:38] <jd896> Do thay have the square four pin 12volt connector on them for the atom MBs ?
[23:54:58] <Valen> atom shouldn't need a 12v cpu supply?
[23:55:09] <andypugh> I think mine came with one. I ignored it
[23:55:55] <andypugh> (used the header for SSD power instead)
[23:56:16] <Valen> why are you using one of those psus anyway andypugh?
[23:56:35] <jd896> Ah do you not use the intel d525mw then
[23:56:49] <andypugh> Mine is a D510.
[23:57:01] <r00t4rd3d> I have 525mw
[23:58:30] <r00t4rd3d> andy you use them cause they are small?
[23:59:14] <tjb1> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpU0R9lhadI&feature=related
[23:59:25] <andypugh> Yes. And there seems little point having 300W of PSU making several voltages I have no need of at currents I can't use.
