[00:42:43] <Connor> any good free gif to dxf programs ? python or perl is fine.
[00:43:54] <r00t4rd3d> free yes, good no.

[00:44:31] <r00t4rd3d> link to gif?
[00:44:42] <Connor> Goign to be a qr code.. will change.
[00:46:29] <r00t4rd3d> I use Vector Magic but thats not free

[01:24:16] <r00t4rd3d> sure it can
[01:24:20] <r00t4rd3d> it is vector
[01:24:32] <jymmm> PNG is raster, not vector.
[01:24:33] <r00t4rd3d> i went from svg to png to dxf
[01:24:56] <jymmm> and lost all the outline for one.

[02:02:49] <ReadError> ill see tomorrow i guess
[02:03:33] <toastydeath> quick, unsolicited tip
[02:03:47] <toastydeath> if you have to re-cut something to bring it down in size, back your cutter off by like .0025
[02:04:06] <toastydeath> the spring pass can take off a shitload of material you were not expecting

[02:05:40] <toastydeath> easy to cut, just like 6061, but springs like a motherfucker

[02:42:40] <Tecan> not easily
[02:43:05] <Tecan> i fried a few trying to figure out the wiring on my nema 34 lol

[02:54:15] <r00t4rd3d> how many copper heat sinks have you ever seen?
[02:54:36] <ReadError> uh
[02:54:38] <ReadError> zalman ?
[02:56:03] <r00t4rd3d> rare, most are made of aluminum.
[02:58:34] <AR__> no
[02:58:40] <AR__> aluminum is not conductive
[02:59:02] <jdh> really.
[02:59:07] <r00t4rd3d> lol
[02:59:12] <Tecan> its conductive just not magnetic

[02:59:49] <jdh> http://tinyurl.com/aca2cx5
[02:59:52] <pcw_home> copper is better but more expensive/heavier
[03:00:03] <r00t4rd3d> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_sink#Design_factors
[03:00:17] <r00t4rd3d> The most common heat sink materials are aluminium alloys.[
[03:01:22] <AR__> i machine my heat sinks out of O1 tool steel to tolerances under .00005
[03:01:47] <r00t4rd3d> Hmm I guess diamonds are good for heatsinks
[03:01:52] <jdh> why so sloppy?
[03:02:06] <r00t4rd3d> he likes his machined parts like he likes his women
[03:02:22] <jdh> paid for?
[03:02:37] <toastydeath> copper is twice as thermally conductive than Al, but Al is quite thermally conductive by itself
[03:03:00] <jdh> copper is prettier
[03:03:01] <toastydeath> and steel is dismal comparatively.

[03:29:11] <Tecan> even when i slow it down it still sending the same ammount of laser its probably in the code i need to modify
[03:29:20] <Tecan> nice to be able to do though
[03:29:28] <Tecan> gets only a little darke
[03:29:28] <Tecan> r
[03:30:12] <Tecan> it uses spindle speed :)
[03:30:17] <Tecan> to fire the laser
[03:30:45] <Tecan> iirc
[03:31:02] <Tecan> ya the pwm

[03:32:27] <r00t4rd3d> 40w seems very low
[03:33:07] <Tecan> not if you think how well those cdrom lasers work
[03:33:15] <Tecan> blueray for example
[03:33:59] <Tecan> i probably have to tweak the pwm settings to get er upto 100% blast
[03:35:34] <Tecan> my laser as is fireing in test mode i cant even cut acrylic
[03:35:46] <Tecan> duno if it needs to be black or what
[03:36:16] <Tecan> it dents it a little bit but it would take forever
[03:36:55] <r00t4rd3d> whats your pulse width set to?
[03:37:35] <Tecan> not sure off hand probably between 5 and 10k hz
[03:39:41] <r00t4rd3d> go out of focus, lower the power and slow the speed down, reduce the ppi
[03:39:48] <r00t4rd3d> " "
[03:40:34] <Tecan> i've not really focused it properly yet lol
[03:40:47] <Tecan> i got rid of the cat eye burn and then left it

[03:51:05] <Gene34> fyi... watched 70 videos on youtube and have read several forum posts and understand what is needed for repair, but when aligning best barrel with action and cleanup etc would like a little more info
[03:52:03] <r00t4rd3d> so you are making one?
[03:52:09] <r00t4rd3d> got any progress pics?

[03:54:34] <Gene34> AR15 is not for me...

[09:10:38] <Tecan> would it be possible to drive 2 stepper motors at the same time in opposite directions with 4 transistors ?
[09:11:09] <Tecan> by reversing the motor wires or something
[09:12:01] <archivist> possible...but is it sensible
[09:12:39] <Tecan> rather than taking up 2 axis on a driver board
[09:12:53] <Tecan> they should step in unison right ?
[09:13:46] <archivist> it is very likely you dont want to do that because you will not want the exact phase to be the same
[09:14:24] <Tecan> on the same axis on the mill ?
[09:15:37] <archivist> just get a large enough single, for a gantry your phase is not identical side to side

[09:47:14] <Tecan> im one of those redgreeners
[09:47:35] <archivist> answer does not match question
[09:47:57] <Tecan> i see what your saying now
[09:48:22] <Tecan> just move the motor where you need it
[09:48:37] <Tecan> run them in parallel
[09:48:49] <archivist> why why parallel
[09:48:58] <Tecan> like matching colors
[09:49:05] <Tecan> into the same socket
[09:49:16] <archivist> steppers are not made for parallel
[09:49:41] <archivist> there is more to this than the connection side
[09:49:48] <Tecan> :)
[09:49:53] <Tecan> i understand more now
[09:51:08] <Tecan> guess i like riding bikes off the paths into tree's lol

[09:54:17] <Tecan> anyway i g2g
[09:54:22] <Tecan> thanks for the help
[09:55:30] <archivist> mechanical parallel needs the phasing to be correct of they drive each other and lose power unless they are correctly offset to their own home/0

[14:48:43] <mrsun> tho i think that vice will take up just about the whole micromill i have :P
[14:49:49] <MattyMatt> as long as the table is big enough for the vice base to sit on, that's ideal isn't it?
[14:50:17] <mrsun> ye i guess =)
[14:50:30] <archivist> too much vice height can be a problem too
[14:51:09] <MattyMatt> that one clearly comes off the rotary base

[14:58:21] <MattyMatt> £6.95 and worth every penny :)
[14:59:22] <archivist> ew, hide that from public view
[14:59:38] <MattyMatt> it was a good match for my plywood dremel pusher, but now I have the makings of a real mill

[15:03:38] <mrsun> heh cool little machine
[15:03:41] <MattyMatt> real by my standards. the guy who sold it also had a bridgeport
[15:04:00] <archivist> dinky toy :)
[15:04:46] <MattyMatt> this is perfect size for me. it was right on the limit of what I could get in momma's car and upstairs by myself
[15:04:47] <archivist> far better than plywood
[15:05:32] <archivist> you can get bigger stuff upstairs by dismantle and carry smaller bits....trust me I know this :)

[15:06:11] <archivist> 3 deg c indoors here
[15:06:21] <MattyMatt> I took this up in 2 pieces
[15:07:01] <MattyMatt> table was ~100lbs (hernia) and base was ~200 (broken toes)
[15:07:11] <archivist> I think my 5 axis was 4 bits
[15:07:25] <MattyMatt> I rolled the base end over end up the stairs
[15:07:32] <skunkworks> indoors?
[15:07:39] <archivist> or 5 if one counts the pc
[15:07:53] <MattyMatt> yeah wooden staircase, with momma daring me to chip the paint
[15:08:03] <archivist> all normal people have cnc indoors dont they?
[15:08:39] <skunkworks> that is freezing..
[15:09:04] <skunkworks> (almost)
[15:09:22] <MattyMatt> I'll keep this one manual for a bit. stiff dovetails = big motors
[15:09:31] <archivist> it is effin cold in here
[15:10:41] <MattyMatt> all the snow melted away in the sun here. we've got a microclimate. this town is famous for its palm trees
[15:10:50] <skunkworks> archivist scrapes frost off the monitor
[15:11:27] <MattyMatt> scilly isles, torquay, and then wallasey
[15:11:43] <MattyMatt> and there's a scottish island that can also grow them
[15:13:43] <MattyMatt> we get privileged access to gulf stream I think
[15:14:07] <archivist> send it down the country a bit
[15:15:26] <MattyMatt> -11F is effin cold
[15:15:41] <MattyMatt> -11C is bad enough IMO
[15:16:38] <MattyMatt> 2/3 of the world's population have never seen snow, according to a bbc report I read. I'm not sure I believe that

[15:26:50] <archivist> skunkworks, one of the backlights in my old display used to fail in low temperatures, I would know it was cold by the dim and flickering display
[15:26:53] <MattyMatt> I'm not sure whether to scrap my plywood one when this one is working. it's got a slightly bigger work area and does the job for woodwork
[15:29:09] <MattyMatt> I'll pass it on to another beginner probably, complete with 4axis TB6560 and nema23
[15:30:41] <archivist> burn the wood to keep warm re use the electronics
[15:31:08] <MattyMatt> I'm gonna start replacing failed CCF backlights with rows of white LED
[15:33:51] <MattyMatt> I'm running out of thinkpad spares, and my bigger screens I can't fix the inverters at all
[15:44:46] <pcw_home> The inverter on my desktop monitor just died (Crappy capacitors leading to transistor failures)
[15:44:48] <pcw_home> they are a very common cause of LCD problems
[15:47:09] <Loetmichel> pcw_home: on my monitors at home the psu electrolytics fail very predictable after 6 months....
[15:48:33] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=5675
[15:48:50] <Loetmichel> i think thats whats called "planned obsolescence"
[15:49:01] <pcw_home> Mine did a lot better (6 years). I dont think people have complained like they have with motherboard capacitors
[15:49:27] <pcw_home> nice picture
[15:49:49] <Loetmichel> look at hte pic... to put the cas DIRECTLY beside the heatsink cant be accidental ;-)
[15:49:53] <Loetmichel> caps
[15:50:11] <pcw_home> Lovely timer
[15:50:41] <Loetmichel> hannsG... nuff said ;:)
[15:51:26] <pcw_home> that looks almost exactly like mine that just failed
[15:52:36] <Loetmichel> i thinkt thats an "outsourced" part
[15:52:38] <Loetmichel> the PSU
[15:52:45] <pcw_home> Although only some of the caps on mine were bulged
[15:52:58] <Loetmichel> thats why it written on "TDK" in a HannsG monitor ;-)
[15:53:35] <pcw_home> Yes with every singe part sourced form the cheapest supplier
[15:53:56] <Loetmichel> like apollo ;-)
[15:54:01] <Loetmichel> or the shuttle;-)
[15:54:38] <pcw_home> at least its not keeping anyone in the air
[15:56:34] <pcw_home> I just bought a new monitor but intend to fix the old one
[15:56:36] <pcw_home> (the new monitor is LED and has much better contrast so its probably a good thing for my old eyes)
[15:58:58] <pcw_home> LED _backlight_ I should say. I guess there are OLED monitors for those with money to burn
[16:01:12] <archivist> what is this money you speak of
[16:01:41] <pcw_home> something we had in the olden days
[16:02:07] <archivist> 12 years since I had a sensible wage :(

[16:06:49] <Loetmichel> i am only 43... but still: if my wife would get the pink slip we were in trouble.
[16:06:59] <Loetmichel> my wage is only about 2800 Eur
[16:07:03] <Loetmichel> monthly
[16:08:27] <pcw_home> But you actually have government services. we pay lower taxes but get ~0
[16:09:21] <archivist> why are the republicans fighting obama over health reforms!
[16:09:47] <cradek> while we have a shortage of available health care, we have a decent road system and my house is hooked to reliable gas, electricity, and sewer
[16:09:48] <Loetmichel> right, thats why my account only sees 1450Eur a month as income. rest_> government
[16:10:23] <cradek> pcw_home: (a friend just got back from a long stay in nepal. helps to have some perspective about services...)
[16:11:23] <pcw_home> Well yes we do sort of have medicare

[16:12:14] <pcw_home> so we dont have 0 services we have occasional very silly wars
[16:12:42] <cradek> and the largest most successful prison system (although that's quickly being privatized so the rich can extract profit from it)

[20:20:52] <kwallace1> Usually the problem comes about when using single phase input with a VFD designed for three phase input. To do so, one should use a VFD rated at 1.2kW or more, or use a VFD rated for single phase.

[20:26:44] <AR__> 1hp 220v 3-phase output
[20:27:49] <AR__> if you overload a VFD it just shuts off with an error right?
[20:31:54] <kwallace1> I think it depends on how sophisticated the software is, but usually a VFD will shut down on DC bus under and over voltage, output bridge over temperature and maybe over current. Usually you can program these to suit your motor, but I'm not an expert.

[20:49:28] <mrsun> i dont get it :/
[20:49:48] <mrsun> might be overtightened tables or something so missing steps somewhere

[20:53:15] <tjb1> Seen a guy on a motorcycle at school…its 12F here...
[20:55:05] <mrsun> i guess i could attack the calipers to check movement atleast curdley

[21:22:36] <Loetmichel> mrsun: IIRC the farenheit scale is just steeperand a bit shifted, 100°F = ~38°C, 0°F = ~-18°C
[21:22:47] -!- jatorre has quit [Quit: jatorre]
[21:23:01] <Loetmichel> so its perfectly linear, just not at the same "angle" than Celsius
[21:23:12] <mrsun> ye but where did they get that 0F os -18C from ? from their asses? :P
[21:23:49] <Loetmichel> IIRC farenheit uses his body temperature as 100° and the freezing point of aclohol as 0°
[21:24:04] <Loetmichel> used
[21:24:14] <mrsun> so he was a hot person with an alcohol problem then ?
[21:24:23] <mrsun> and in that you trust a temperature scale? :P
[21:25:17] <Loetmichel> oh, wron, he used the coldest temperature in winter in his hometown danzig...
[21:25:27] <Loetmichel> just asked wikipedia
[21:25:28] <DJ9DJ> body temp is 96F
[21:25:52] <mrsun> if i have 38 degrees i run a fever or however thats spelled :P
[21:26:15] <Loetmichel> a slight fever, yes
[21:26:56] <Loetmichel> farenheit defined "the bodytemperature of a healthy human" as 96°F
[21:27:15] <mrsun> well mr farenheit should have been shot at birth :P
[21:28:56] <Loetmichel> ;-)
[21:29:02] <mrsun> but then again, ye its hard to define a temperature ... but using body heat as a reference is kinda stupid
[21:29:22] <mrsun> atleast water always freezes at the same temperature at the same altitude with the same preasure :P
[21:29:32] <Loetmichel> farenheit defined it in 1714
[21:29:48] <andypugh> Look up the "Newton" scale
[21:29:50] <Loetmichel> what other fixed temperature did he have to lean on?
[21:31:07] <Jymmm> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fahrenheit
[21:31:08] <mrsun> water freezing insted of alcohol ?
[21:31:09] <mrsun> :P
[21:31:23] <Jymmm> brine
[21:31:54] <tjb1> water only freezes at the same temperature if its pure water
[21:32:43] <Loetmichel> distilled water was readily aviable in 1714
[21:32:43] <mrsun> doesnt the same hold true for brine, alcohol etc? :P
[21:32:50] <Jymmm> nope
[21:33:12] <Jymmm> add a pinch of salt to water, it boils faster.
[21:33:29] <Jymmm> alcohol never freezes

[21:33:43] <DJ9DJ> it boils slower
[21:33:46] <mrsun> add a pinch of water to brine and it will freeze at a different temperature
[21:33:47] <andypugh> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Delisle_scale
[21:33:51] <DJ9DJ> if you add salt to water
[21:34:24] <andypugh> 0 = boiling, 150 = freezing
[21:35:17] <andypugh> "The Celsius scale, like the Delisle scale, originally ran from zero for boiling water down to 100 for freezing water. This was reversed to its modern order after his death"
[21:36:32] <mrsun> well i guess celcius should have been shot at birth also then
[21:36:44] <mrsun> but atleast some sensible person came and rectified his mistake
[21:37:03] <mrsun> unlike farenheit .. where americans felt like .. "yeah lets use the most stupid scale in the world!"
[21:37:35] <tjb1> 32 is freezing, 212 is boiling, 68-70 is a good temperature and 98.6 is body temp…how hard is that?
[21:38:07] <Jymmm> 32 freezing and 212 boiling is 180 degrees apart.
[21:38:12] <mrsun> 0 is freezing, 100 is boiling 38 is good body temp

[21:39:36] <mrsun> =)
[21:39:50] <andypugh> I want a scale where 0 is the freezing point of coolant and 100 is the melting point of solder.
[21:40:19] <tjb1> Who said day month year is right?
[21:40:21] <Jymmm> andypugh: Why not just make it 10 instead?
[21:40:22] <DJ9DJ> yeah, the andypugh-scale :D
[21:40:50] <mrsun> tjb1, cause its the logical order of things
[21:41:07] <andypugh> year-month-day is more sensible. It can then be lexically sorted.

[21:49:21] <andypugh> Jan 09 was 4 years ago, not 50.
[21:49:22] <roycroft> i'll give you a possible explanation for why it's the case
[21:49:37] <roycroft> printed calendars generally are laid out in a monthy grid
[21:49:42] <roycroft> with the year not being printed on each month's grid
[21:49:56] <Jymmm> Ok, I dont care now, next topic
[21:50:01] <roycroft> so the custom could have developed by reading the month printed on the grid and then the date
[21:50:12] <roycroft> with the year being appended as necessary
[21:50:24] <roycroft> that is an explanation, but it's still not logical
[21:50:32] <andypugh> "December the thursdayth"
[21:50:34] <Jymmm> ok spock
[21:50:55] <roycroft> one could ask when the week begins too

[21:57:50] <roycroft> if your car/truck is very difficult to start at 10 degrees or lower, the glow plugs might need to be replaced
[21:58:02] <Jymmm> roycroft: So, 40F and below would take how long to start? Would it kill the battery?
[21:58:08] <roycroft> and if it's -10 or colder, i should imagine a block heater would be necessary
[21:58:11] <mozmck> Jymmm, the heat for combustion in a diesel comes from the high compression, and if it is too cold to start with the heat will be less.
[21:58:27] <roycroft> i've never had to crank so much it drains the battery
[21:59:05] <Jymmm> I'm looking at this this afternoon 1982 Vw diesel mk1 sunroof jetta - $1800
[21:59:08] <roycroft> keep in mind that diesel engines generally have bigger batteries than gasoline engines of identical displacement
[21:59:13] <Jymmm> 212K Miles
[21:59:14] <mozmck> I have a block heater I plug in if it's going to be below about 30F - helps the truck crank faster.
[21:59:21] <roycroft> i'd be concerned, jymmm
[21:59:28] <Jymmm> roycroft: why?
[21:59:58] <roycroft> because on a diesel vw of that vintage, 200k miles is right about where everything starts wearing out
[22:00:03] <mozmck> My old mercedes will almost not crank if the glow plugs are bad.
[22:00:07] * mrsun throws a trout at Jymmm
[22:00:13] <roycroft> even if you have a newly-rebuilt engine, the tranny, suspension, electrical, etc will start failing at around 200k miles
[22:00:14] <Jymmm> roycroft: ah
[22:00:32] <roycroft> i got rid of my rabbit when it hit 210k miles because it seemed that every week something new and expensive would break
[22:00:35] <roycroft> at first i cursed vw
[22:00:48] <roycroft> then i realised that it was probably engineered so that everything fails at once
[22:00:54] <roycroft> which is smart engineering
[22:01:00] <roycroft> vw is telling you to go get a new car
[22:01:10] <roycroft> and not pour good money after bad in your old one
[22:01:16] <Jymmm> It funny casue I emailed him making sure that he DOENST start the engine so I can see it cold and his replay was " You must know your diesel engines. Days like today it shouldnt be too hard to start. Any colder you might have to hit it with some starting fluid. I been thinking of installing a block heater but i already have too many damn cars. "
[22:01:31] <roycroft> yeah, bad glow plugs make for a very difficult to start car unless it's 20 degrees or warmer
[22:01:43] <Jymmm> how much are they to replace?
[22:01:52] <Jymmm> and how hard?
[22:01:56] <roycroft> on my rabbit glow plugs were about $100 for the set
[22:01:57] <tjb1> have we stopped talking about metric and logical?
[22:02:00] <mozmck> Jymmm: if you want an older diesel look for a mercedes. they are much better.
[22:02:10] -!- sumpfralle has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
[22:02:19] <roycroft> and replacing them is almost like replacing spark plugs, but iirc you have to take the fuel rails off to get to them
[22:02:35] <Jymmm> how often are they replaced?
[22:02:37] <roycroft> so slightly more work than replacing spark plugs
[22:02:43] <roycroft> every 100k miles or so
[22:02:49] <Jymmm> oh, then no biggy
[22:02:50] <roycroft> they should not fail often
[22:02:56] <mozmck> when they quit working
[22:03:10] <roycroft> when they quit working your engine will not start unless it's summer
[22:03:13] <Jymmm> anythign else to lok out for?
[22:03:15] <roycroft> and i'm not talking uk summer
[22:03:15] <Jymmm> look
[22:03:27] -!- jatorre has quit [Client Quit]
[22:03:56] <roycroft> suspension, electrical - i had all sorts of problems starting at about 200k miles going to 210k, when i got rid of it
[22:04:01] <roycroft> the clutch went out
[22:04:08] <roycroft> the tranny started making noises towards the end
[22:04:29] -!- Poincare has quit [Quit: changing servers]
[22:04:33] <roycroft> i'm a big fan of vw diesels
[22:04:53] <roycroft> but i'd really recommend not buying an early '80s vintage vw with 200k miles on it, unless you can get it for $500
[22:05:03] <roycroft> it will turn into a money pit
[22:05:16] <roycroft> the headliner even started sagging shortly before i got rid of mine
[22:05:24] <roycroft> i guess they used 200k mile glue
[22:05:37] <Jymmm> lol
[22:05:37] <roycroft> well, 20 year glue, more like
[22:05:47] <mozmck> roycroft: do you like the newer TDI engines? I've heard they are great, but the electrical systems are terrible.
[22:05:55] <roycroft> i'm quite happy with my new beetle
[22:06:06] <Jymmm> Yeah, I've never had a diesel before. Would like to get a small pickup.
[22:06:09] <roycroft> i've had no major problems, but the previous owner replaced several switches
[22:06:21] <roycroft> vw 1.6L diesel:
[22:06:25] <Jymmm> electrical, I can do all day long.
[22:06:28] <roycroft> good - fantastic fuel economy
[22:06:36] <roycroft> bad - 0-60 in five minutes
[22:06:45] <Jymmm> I just dont want to deal with smog shit anymore.
[22:06:49] -!- Poincare [Poincare!~jefffnode@edn.ampersant.be] has joined #linuxcnc
[22:06:56] <Jymmm> and MPG good too
[22:06:58] <roycroft> lots of proprietary parts and tools
[22:07:04] <mozmck> I'm trying to sell my 83 mercedes because it needs a bit of work and I don't have time any more, but it has a lot more than 210k miles on it. Engine still runs fine.
[22:07:06] <roycroft> fuel economy = mpg
[22:07:18] <roycroft> or km/L
[22:07:22] <roycroft> however you look at it
[22:07:28] <roycroft> which is why i used the generic term
[22:07:29] <Jymmm> proprietary tools?
[22:07:31] <roycroft> yes
[22:07:36] <Jymmm> such as?
[22:07:53] <roycroft> special wrenches, pullers, etc.
[22:07:53] <Jymmm> Like an O2 sensor socket?
[22:08:01] <roycroft> no, i'm talking about proprietary vw tools
[22:08:03] -!- skorasaurus has quit [Quit: left the building.]
[22:08:06] <roycroft> an o2 sensor socket is generic
[22:08:06] <Jymmm> ohhhhhhhhh
[22:08:19] <roycroft> i'm talking about a spanner made to take one part off
[22:08:25] <roycroft> and you can't use any standard tool for that
[22:08:31] <Jymmm> oh fuck me
[22:08:45] <roycroft> back in the air-cooled vw days, vw used to publish specs for making most of the special tools
[22:09:05] <roycroft> now they just give you part numbers and tell you to ring up your vw service center, pull out your wallet, and bend over
[22:09:08] -!- odogono has quit [Ping timeout: 252 seconds]
[22:09:27] <roycroft> if you're clever you can make most of your own, though
[22:09:59] <roycroft> there's a very expensive tool used to hold the engine in place on my car while the transmission is being dropped
[22:10:02] <Jymmm> And me here sei-whining about $20 line disconnect tool to replace the fuel filter
[22:10:07] <Jymmm> semi-
[22:10:21] -!- Sendoushi has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[22:10:22] <roycroft> a big metal bar with two holes drilled in it, and padding on the ends, works just as well
[22:10:54] <roycroft> but many of the tools are difficult to jerry-rig that easily
[22:11:27] <Jymmm> The gold one http://www.harborfreight.com/4-piece-fuel-and-auto-trans-line-disconnect-tool-set-96834.html
[22:11:34] <Jymmm> works good btw
[22:12:18] <Jymmm> I just dont like plastic tools
[22:13:00] <roycroft> i don't buy many tools from hf
[22:13:16] <roycroft> i consider almost anything i buy there a kit that needs to be rebuilt and augmented before it is functional
[22:13:21] -!- Poincare has quit [Ping timeout: 248 seconds]
[22:13:30] <roycroft> and i just bought a small greenhouse from there at lunch today
[22:13:55] <roycroft> it's not quite greenhouse season, but i wanted to get it now so i can erect it in my garage and see what i'll need to do to make it functional
[22:14:05] <roycroft> but some of their automotive tools are somewhat useful
[22:15:16] <Jymmm> Well those were $15 cheaper at HF than at the auto parts store and EXACT SAME thing
[22:15:31] <roycroft> yeah, i don't automatically reject anything they have
[22:15:41] <Jymmm> http://www.harborfreight.com/propane-bottle-refill-kit-45989.html
[22:15:48] <Jymmm> That is the real thing
[22:15:59] <Jymmm> and $7 cheaper than elsewhere
[22:16:06] <Jymmm> when on sale
[22:16:39] <Jymmm> But yeah HF is scarry otherwise, just gotta find the gems in a pile of poo
[22:17:01] <Jymmm> $6 rubber wheel chocks
[22:17:09] <Jymmm> with coupon =)

[23:38:41] <jdh> nice. Where did you find another one?
[23:38:45] <Connor> Next step is to install it along with the C43 speed controller and get it all hooked up.
[23:38:51] <Connor> Ebay.
[23:39:00] <jdh> in the original box, or you doing somethign differnt?
[23:39:03] <Connor> $112.00 for the same unit.. little newer.. this one is surface mount.

[23:40:01] <Connor> I'm going to try to get it repaired.. if I can get it repaired cheap enough, I'll sell it.
[23:40:14] <Connor> or use on the 4th axis.
[23:41:08] <Connor> I put a AMT102 encoder on the 2nd shaft of the Treadmill motor too..
[23:41:25] <Connor> So, I'll get that wired up A,B, Z and have full encoder support. :)
[23:41:41] <jdh> via p-port?
[23:41:43] <jdh> how many lines?
[23:41:47] <Connor> for now.
[23:41:49] <Connor> 3 lines.
[23:42:01] <Connor> I have 3-Par-port's
[23:42:07] <Connor> so, I'm good.
[23:42:09] <jdh> I mean lines on the encoder
[23:42:14] <jdh> or PPR
[23:42:28] <Connor> Yea, 3 lines A, B, and Z.

[23:52:01] <jdh> it looks like it is prescient

[23:53:48] <jdh> it looks like it it is responding to the future.
[23:53:49] <skunkworks> Connor: has pete bought any servos and or drives?

[23:54:29] <jdh> or, it's just wrong
[23:55:03] <Connor> he had some other issues too.. Broken dishwaser.. His van started having issues, and garage door opener stripped a gear.. I swear he can't catch a break.
[23:55:04] <andypugh> tjtr33: You seem to be on the limits of resolution of halscope. Also, the precise results will tend to depend on execution order. Is Halscope sampling before or after the and2 runs? Who can say?
[23:57:25] <Connor> skunkworks: any recommendations on which servo / drivers he should get?
[23:57:32] <tjtr33> andy will try to slow the thread down, but what are the guidelines? what tipped you off I was near limits of halscope?
[23:59:35] <skunkworks> Connor: not really - If it where me - I would have used the servos on the machine and found drives...
[23:59:38] <andypugh> The slope on the transition lines from true to false.
