[03:05:11] ash__ is now known as draive
[03:06:08] <jdh> any suggestions for an inexpensive but non-sucky multimeter for a student?
[03:06:45] <Valen> what defines sucky to you?
[03:06:52] <Valen> I use $5 ones all the time lol
[03:07:00] <jdh> I use $2 ones
[03:07:25] <jdh> some were free though. When the battery dies, I usually throw them away
[03:07:51] <Valen> deal extreme will probably have a 10 pack of 9v batteries or whatever for $2
[03:08:22] -!- kmiyashiro has quit [Client Quit]
[03:08:46] <jdh> I was looking for something real
[03:08:56] <Valen> get something with a backlight
[03:08:59] <Valen> thats usefull
[03:09:53] <tjb1> jdh: fluke 87v
[03:09:56] <tjb1> :)
[03:09:56] <Valen> also get good leads
[03:10:17] <jdh> too pricey
[03:10:21] <Valen> silicon with the fine wires and them little graspy probes
[03:16:36] <jdh> fluke 15b looks basic and <$100
[03:18:35] <tjb1> watch which one you get
[03:18:44] <tjb1> some wont do fine voltages and such
[03:18:50] <tjb1> well they dont have the resolution
[03:19:07] <jdh> yeah, I ran across one at work a few week ago that only did 0.1v
[03:19:29] <Valen> .1 is a bit naff
[03:19:32] <tjb1> I got an 87v so I never have to get one again
[03:19:43] <jdh> this one says .1mV
[03:20:16] <Valen> I put $5 ones around the place because when the one in my tool bag looses its grudge match with the lump hammer i dont cry

[03:20:50] <jdh> I pick them up at harbor freight when they are free or $2
[03:21:25] <Valen> hmmm don't know if i'd trust it from here, though since everything is made in china anyway is there a difference? http://dx.com/p/fluke-15b-2-6-lcd-digital-multimeter-meter-2-aa-included-28658?tc=AUD&gclid=COKqmJaMirUCFahMpgodwh8A0Q
[03:21:29] <jdh> it's for my son. A cheap featured chinese one might be more interesting
[03:21:38] <Valen> how old is he?
[03:21:45] <jdh> 18
[03:21:46] <Valen> and what does he want to use it for?
[03:21:49] <jdh> college freshman
[03:24:13] <jdh> the class says: You are recommended to purchase an inexpensive multimeter to use at home.
[03:24:34] <jdh> so, I can give him one of my $2 ones, or buy a semi-decent one.
[03:24:48] <Valen> I'd suggest perhaps getting him a few $2 ones and a decent one
[03:25:20] <Valen> but if he hasn't used them much before and might try and measure the impedance of the wall socket or how many amps are in the battery then a fluke may not be the best bet just yet
[03:25:28] <ReadError> i upgraded from a cheap DMM to a fluke
[03:25:32] <ReadError> it was well worth it
[03:25:42] <Valen> friend of mine once tried to measure the amps in a car spark plug lead
[03:25:45] <ReadError> granted, i had cheap DDM for 10 years
[03:25:52] <ReadError> and it served me well
[03:26:02] <ReadError> but the fluke, i felt like a man
[03:26:04] <Valen> the result was "AAGGAGAGAG FFFFFFUUFUUUUU TURN IT OFFFF@!@!!!@#!@#"
[03:26:18] <Valen> then he hurled the meter and himself across the garage

[03:28:37] <Valen> oh yeah, i'm wary of auto ranging stuff
[03:29:04] <Valen> i mean it can be nice but it often seems to screw around a lot before getting to the actual measurement
[03:29:11] -!- sumpfralle has quit [Ping timeout: 245 seconds]
[03:29:53] <jdh> yep
[03:30:00] <jdh> and then you have to find a simpson
[03:30:14] <Valen> I'd consider something with a clamp meter too
[03:30:54] <jdh> I'm leaning more toward $20 chinese now
[03:31:35] <Valen> my tool purchasing philosophy is to get a broad range of cheap crap, then when i break something or throw it at a wall buy the best one of those i can afford, as its obviously something i use
[03:31:52] <jdh> it's not for me though :)
[03:32:24] <jdh> I have a good meter somewhere, but I haven't seen it in a year probably. The $2 ones and my scope do all I need.
[03:32:36] <Valen> I figure he may appreciate getting something with all the bells and whistles on that may suck in some way or another then he can get a good one if he winds up using it
[03:32:41] <Valen> whats the class on?

[03:33:52] <jdh> I'd like to have the quad one
[03:33:56] <jdh> but, not bad enough to pay for it.
[03:34:11] <Valen> this looks the seks lol http://dx.com/p/qdso-3-5-lcd-1-ch-40mhz-250ms-s-mini-digital-oscilloscope-black-orange-153902
[03:34:32] <Valen> I reckon one that bluetoothed data to an android phone would be neat ;->
[03:36:50] <jdh> http://www.ebay.com/itm/380401055496
[03:37:18] <jdh> nothing worse than crappy probes though
[03:37:21] <Valen> looks pretty good really
[03:37:25] <Valen> yeah spend the money on those
[03:37:52] <Valen> get those ones with the little hooks on that you can latch on, also a set of alligator clip probes

[05:45:41] <Connor> AR__: Did you step UP to the 5/8? or just try to drill it in one shot?
[05:47:19] <AR__> i drilled 1/4 first
[05:47:30] <AR__> then up to 5/8
[05:47:51] <Connor> That's part of you issue.. Step up in increments..
[05:48:08] <Connor> and, I would do both plates at the same time.
[05:49:35] <AR__> i did
[05:49:45] <AR__> they are parallel
[05:49:58] <Connor> okay, so, one side is just off from the other?
[05:50:03] <AR__> it's just the holes for the right rail are slightly higher
[05:50:04] <AR__> yes
[05:50:36] <Connor> How did you lay it out for drilling? You score it ?
[05:50:41] <AR__> yes
[05:51:06] <Connor> score, punch, re-punch, center drill, pilot. and step up.
[05:51:19] <AR__> the drill press is also in my shed and it was like 8 degrees F
[05:51:23] <AR__> sucked
[05:54:10] <Connor> youch.. Umm. put a heater in there and warm it up before you work. :)
[05:55:03] <Connor> anyone know what those CB style connectors are rated at amp/voltage wise ?

[05:59:35] <Jymmm> I use em
[05:59:55] <Jymmm> 4pin
[06:00:06] <Connor> I use them for steppers.. I just want to know the amp/volts rating..
[06:00:36] <Connor> looking for some sort of plug that'll work for my spindle. DC 16-amps 120v
[06:01:05] <Jymmm> 2KW
[06:01:08] <archivist> 16 amps is a lot for toy connectors
[06:01:33] <Connor> toy connector ?

[06:06:26] <Jymmm> archivist: and why is that?
[06:06:36] <Jymmm> archivist: have you used them?
[06:06:57] <archivist> the weak sliding contact
[06:07:14] <Jymmm> WHAT?
[06:07:14] <Connor> They look pretty tough to me.. I just wasn't sure if they could handle the rating.
[06:07:54] <archivist> I have serviced failed connectors of all types over the years due to over current
[06:07:55] <Connor> I'm thinking of using one for my spindle motor connection..
[06:08:36] <Connor> probably double up the connection points since I have 4 pins.
[06:10:18] <archivist> the wiping force has to overcome any corrosion to make a good enough contact
[06:12:20] <archivist> ideally you get a microweld, DIN is good example of designed in high contact force but that has a very small pin for audio not for power use
[06:13:08] * archivist refers to a 1970's article on connector design and testing
[06:13:33] -!- theos [theos!~theos@unaffiliated/theos] has parted #linuxcnc
[06:14:19] <Connor> I'm thinking 18 gauge wire, no more that 15' in length (4 conductor). Doubled up using one of those CB connectors.
[06:14:48] <fragalot> 4 brass bushings & 4 replacement brushes
[06:14:50] * fragalot nods
[06:15:03] <fragalot> (assuming you need a rotating connector)
[06:15:03] <archivist> I would expect the connector to heat up and burnout eventually
[06:15:24] <fragalot> if you only need static, I highly recommend HARTING
[06:15:31] <Connor> fragalot: What? for just a connector ?
[06:15:56] <Connor> archivist: So, what kind of connector do you suggest then?
[06:16:16] <archivist> Harting will publish their ratings because they test their stuff
[06:16:17] <Jymmm> a $30/ea one I bet
[06:16:20] * fragalot => work

[06:18:05] <Connor> Well.. I WILL say that the EXISTING connector is just a plan old spade style connector.. Came on the motor..
[06:19:50] <Connor> I think the CB will be fine. The motor will never hit 16 amps.. If it does.. I'll have far more problems..

[06:24:07] <archivist> it is not a din
[06:26:11] <archivist> the fact that the mic connector has no current or voltage rating should tell you not to use it
[06:38:46] <archivist> and mic connector is a pin short, no ground pin
[06:39:10] <Jymmm> you forgot shield
[06:40:27] <archivist> mic housing is rather poor to grip a shield

[06:42:37] <archivist> is the gap from a pin to shell enough for US mains rating
[06:43:57] <Jymmm> I'd never use them for B+
[06:44:01] <archivist> I have always assumed it is a 12v rated part
[06:44:38] <Jymmm> 120V but like 4.5A
[06:45:02] <Jymmm> I STILL wouldn't use the for mains though.

[06:51:21] <archivist> my scales have a 5 pin version of the mic connector made by PLT by the look of it
[06:52:42] <Jymmm> Hmmm, they have a "PowerCon" connector too it seems.. http://www.neutrik.com/en/audio/powercon/powercon-20-a/nac3mpa-1

[06:57:54] <Jymmm> "That's the way it's suppose to look"
[06:59:27] <Jymmm> tjb1: I'm sorry man, I like the idea of 3D printing, but the implementation I've seem on YouTube is lacking for my tastes.
[06:59:50] <Jymmm> tjb1: I did see one that was perfect, but it did take up half a room.

[07:00:16] <tjb1> the stereolithography are awesome but the prints have little use except for holding them

[07:15:13] <tjb1> drill a hole in it
[07:15:26] <Jymmm> O_o
[07:15:30] <r00t4rd3d> drop it and change the pump full
[07:15:36] <tjb1> drill a hole in the tank
[07:15:47] <Jymmm> r00t4rd3d: it's full, and why I have to empty it
[07:16:04] <archivist> pay a professional
[07:16:08] <r00t4rd3d> lol
[07:16:11] <Jymmm> too much
[07:16:26] <r00t4rd3d> burn it down and collect the insurance

[07:16:47] <Jymmm> r00t4rd3d: I'd get caught
[07:17:19] <archivist> this has been going on for weeks...just do it
[07:17:41] <Jymmm> I am the pump is on it's way. Just need to empty the tank now
[07:18:40] <tjb1> roll it over
[07:18:48] <Jymmm> wont start
[07:18:51] <archivist> why, drop off the vehicle, replace pump, use new pump to empty, put back on vehicle
[07:19:02] <tjb1> you dont need to start it to roll over
[07:19:08] <Jymmm> in-tank pump
[07:19:30] <tjb1> Can you take the line off and siphon through the outlet?
[07:19:59] <archivist> the pump will stop that probably
[07:20:03] <Jymmm> tjb1: in-tank pump to fuel filter. I was told the pump isn't "free flowing"
[07:20:10] <r00t4rd3d> http://i.imgur.com/M9Bbqwi.jpg
[07:20:14] <r00t4rd3d> try that
[07:20:31] <Jymmm> r00t4rd3d: you first
[07:20:46] <tjb1> Cant you stuff a hose down the neck and then pull it out when you have the tank down?
[07:21:04] <Jymmm> tjb1: No, hang on...
[07:21:42] <Jymmm> tjb1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k39E2PRofIo
[07:22:43] <archivist> support the tank, unbolt, disconnect pipes, lift car off and roll it out the way
[07:23:12] <tjb1> stuff a hose in the vent hole
[07:23:16] <Jymmm> I only have a tiny floor jack, won't support lower the tank full
[07:23:53] <Jymmm> ...without going all over the place
[07:24:22] <tjb1> Suppose that gas weighs 8lbs a gallon, thats only 168
[07:24:28] <tjb1> You hsould be able to bench that
[07:25:02] <tjb1> so get under there and lift
[07:25:07] <Jymmm> tjb1: The car frame hits my sternum as it is, trying to balance a long fuel tank sloshing around 20 gallons of fluid aint fun
[07:25:16] <archivist> how full anyway may be lighter
[07:25:32] <tjb1> Well jack the rear end, put it on stands and get a second person
[07:25:48] <tjb1> put wood under supporting the tank, lower one side, one piece of wood at a time
[07:25:52] <archivist> all I have to say is levers
[07:26:16] <tjb1> You can handle one side a time by yourself I would suppose
[07:26:22] <archivist> bits of wood, and blocks
[07:26:41] <Jymmm> Sure, but balancing a full tank sloshing around is the key word.
[07:27:01] <tjb1> You arent balancing anything
[07:27:10] <tjb1> Cut a bunch of 2x4s whatever the length of the tank is
[07:27:14] <tjb1> Put a stack on each side
[07:27:39] <tjb1> the straps will probably lower it onto the 2x4 if you get them close enough
[07:27:57] <tjb1> lift side, remove 1 2x4, go to other side and repeat
[07:28:00] <Jymmm> they are funky and diagonal straps.
[07:28:09] <Jymmm> like a Z pattern
[07:28:25] <tjb1> So?
[07:28:34] <archivist> the bolts are at the sides so what
[07:28:48] <tjb1> Dont fill your tank up next time ;)
[07:29:05] <Jymmm> Anyhow, I'm not dropping the tank with 20 gal period, I need to get most of the gas out.
[07:29:16] <tjb1> Well I dont know what to tell you
[07:29:29] <tjb1> either stuff a hose in the vent line, try to pull from the outlet or drill a hole in the tank
[07:29:59] <tjb1> You cant unhook the filler hose and move it enough to put a hose in that hole?
[07:30:01] <archivist> drilling a hole is a bit of a fire hazard
[07:30:29] <archivist> the vent is probably trivial to get at inside the car
[07:30:54] <tjb1> How long are the bolts in the straps/
[07:30:55] <tjb1> ?

[15:22:15] <chopper79> Hello,
[15:22:16] <betology> Hello, do you know if emc2 can run on rt-kernel from debian wheezy?
[15:22:40] <mutilator> http://superkap.com/f/73236722299633b9942301503fefe45f after i opened a few apps and did some stuff
[15:23:36] <chopper79> I am needing some help with a plasma configuration on EMC2. The configuration I have works almost 100% excluding an issue when it comes to the Z axis not keeping position during THC command. Any one able to help me with tis or maybe just talk about what this could be?
[15:25:31] <JT-Shop> what do you mean by "Z axis not keeping position"?
[15:27:44] <micges> mutilator: hyperthreating disabled?
[15:28:54] -!- KimK has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[15:29:28] <chopper79> @JT-Shop..... When the Z axis is being controlled by the THC commands it will raise and lower to keep the arc voltage correct. The issue is it will slowly creep down unti lthe tip hits the material and eventually trip the float switch. It almost seems that its a mathmatical error such as the THC sends the up command to emc2 and it goes up X amoutn, but then when the THC sends the down command it does not know the actual position so it send a few to many
[15:29:50] <mutilator> micges: yea /proc/cpuinfo only shows one proc

[15:30:24] <JT-Shop> what are you sending the up and down commands to?
[15:30:45] <micges> mutilator: did you enter 33000 to base thread jitter in stepconf?
[15:31:01] <mutilator> i htink i put 40000
[15:31:27] <mutilator> cause it would spike higher when i tested other times
[15:31:36] <mutilator> but never more than 40k
[15:31:54] <micges> mutilator: good
[15:32:11] <micges> mutilator: what are your acc and vel settings?
[15:32:30] <chopper79> @JT-Shop..... The Up/Down commands are being sent from the THC to a secondary breakout board attached to a secondary parallel port on my computer. This is all running into EMC2 and works great excluding the Z issue
[15:32:33] <mutilator> 35k i guess i had it at

[15:33:24] <JT-Shop> how is it "running into emc"?
[15:34:54] <chopper79> @JT-Shop.... it is going into pins 10 and 11 on ther secondary port. If it would help I can send yo my configuration files.
[15:35:25] <chopper79> @JT-Shop... I may not be fully understanding your question either so please forgive me
[15:37:06] <JT-Shop> np, what are you using in emc to move the Z axis up and down based on the two inputs?
[15:38:08] <micges> mutilator: did you had latency warnings in linuxcnc?
[15:38:28] <mutilator> i do yes, but i've never been able to get rid of it
[15:38:34] <mutilator> right when i start the app there is a warning
[15:40:04] <mutilator> ok scratch that
[15:40:11] <mutilator> if i change it to 100,000 i dont get the error
[15:40:19] <mutilator> anything below i get it
[15:40:35] <chopper79> @JT-SHop....My configuration is a modified THC300 config. They seem to be going through a MUX and the Z axis step gen signals are being hijacked and are somehow or another being timed somehow to ensure position.
[15:40:50] <micges> mutilator: I see
[15:41:04] <micges> mutilator: back in 30min, dinner
[15:42:09] <chopper79> @JT-Shop....I can do a lot of cool things in EMC2, but a Plasma THC config is a mind blower!
[15:42:22] <chopper79> Started drinking...haha
[15:43:20] <JT-Shop> thc300 made me kick the cat and then start drinking
[15:43:42] <mutilator> that test program wont work

[15:44:11] <chopper79> @JT-Shop.... haha- it s there a better way for me to be going then?
[15:44:28] <JT-Shop> you might try my thcud component

[15:46:32] <JT-Shop> what is "it"
[15:48:04] <JT-Shop> and did you read the instructions?
[15:48:31] <chopper79> @JT-Shop... Thank you and is that a pretty well used component or is it just another attempt at trying to get EMC2 and steppers to work on a plasma?
[15:49:29] <chopper79> @JT-Shop...... Its just seems there is not that many EMC2 Plasma users and maybe the THC issue is the reason why. I have seen some with a Mesa configs and servos
[15:51:03] <JT-Shop> there seem to be plenty plasma's running steppers
[15:52:23] <chopper79> @JT-Shop.....I wonder how they are doing it then, unless they are using the thcud instead of any of the THC300,1000, etc configs
[15:52:25] <JT-Shop> the Mesa THCAD card is the most cost effective THC on the market by a factor of 3.75 or so and that is what I use with the thc component that is included with EMC from 2.4
[15:52:46] <JT-Shop> most use the THCAD card and the thc component
[15:53:43] <JT-Shop> I modified the thc component for a guy with an up/down thc
[15:54:04] <chopper79> @JT-Shop.... Here is the THC I am using. http://proma-elektronika.pl/cnc-plasma-thc-controller-torch-height-control/
[15:54:49] <JT-Shop> should work fine with the thcud component
[15:55:47] <JT-Shop> nice little unit, what is the cost?
[15:56:45] <chopper79> @JT-Shop..... I will giv eit a try and see what kind of damage I can create. Are you able to use all the widgets like the THC300 config, such as Peirce height, cut height, etc? The unit cost about 300USD I believe, maybe a little less.
[15:56:58] <chopper79> It works great and is real responsive

[17:11:04] <JT-Shop> in what way different? and yes it is for a mesa board
[17:11:28] <JT-Shop> that's not too bad try cleaning the coolant tank on a Hardinge CHNC!
[17:11:32] <frallzor> I do 90& wood and plastic, and I am lazy so most of the time the dust shoe is off! =P
[17:11:46] <frallzor> and that makes a nice mess

[17:14:21] <chopper79> for step and direction I should say
[17:14:27] <JT-Shop> yea, you would have to convert the mesa pins to parallel port pins
[17:14:29] <frallzor> then you try again, and something works, then you´ll love it
[17:14:36] <tandoori> breaking tools?
[17:14:52] <frallzor> Oh yes, it WILL happen =)
[17:15:10] <tandoori> doin something you shouldn't be :-P
[17:15:30] <frallzor> I break tools now and then when playing with new things
[17:15:39] <tandoori> mainly i want to use it for milling pcbs, but I have other plans for it too. making enclosures, mechanical parts, etc
[17:15:40] <frallzor> and sometimes when I clean my machine =P
[17:15:51] <chopper79> @JT-Shop..... Is there a special way to convert them or just go by the data sheet for the mesa board?
[17:16:14] <tandoori> frallzor: im getting one that can mill steel. unfortunately the one that i want is about 3.6k
[17:16:19] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: I'm not sure if it's brake fluid or grease yet, but the inside of the driver's rear rim is covered. If it's NOT brake fluid, how much of a PITA is it to replace axel seals?

[17:17:44] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: 2001 Ford Expedition (Same chassis as F-150)
[17:17:45] <frallzor> I wanted steel-possibility but that didnt walk hand in hand with the size vs cost I had in mind =P
[17:18:39] <tandoori> frallzor: which one did you get?
[17:19:04] <JT-Shop> I would guess similar to a chevy rear axle, take wheel off, take diff apart till axle comes out then pull seal, reverse
[17:19:31] <frallzor> tandoori a diy-machine
[17:19:38] <frallzor> mechmate
[17:19:57] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: Can I do it with hand tools or will I need a compressor/impact wrench?
[17:20:08] <JT-Shop> I have a ford rear end and I only had to take the pin for the inner gears out then push the axle in till the c clip falls out then the axle comes out
[17:20:20] <tandoori> frallzor: orly? and how much did that cost you?
[17:20:33] <JT-Shop> can be done with wrenches or sockects
[17:20:58] <Jymmm> JT-Shop: Ok, cool. I'm almost hoping it's brake fluid.
[17:21:02] <frallzor> I hate talking prices in different currencies, its all depending on economy and rates etc
[17:21:10] <JT-Shop> your axle have a diff cover in the back or does the chuck come out the front?
[17:21:19] <frallzor> but in swedish kronor its about at least 50000

[17:46:38] <alex4nder> r00t4rd3d: what?
[17:46:48] <alex4nder> I'm talking about using LinuxCNC on a new distro.
[17:47:11] <r00t4rd3d> well if its not that hard
[17:47:11] <alex4nder> not about supplying you with a brain-dead installer.. that wouldn't require much of a Linux guru.
[17:48:03] <alex4nder> it took me a couple hours to build installable .debs for my clean Debian install.
[17:50:09] <JT-Shop> frallzor: is your machine near by?
[17:50:22] <JT-Shop> open up axis and see what version your running
[17:51:09] <r00t4rd3d> support runs out on 10.04 LTS in April 2013.
[17:52:59] <r00t4rd3d> funny how to morons at canonical think 3 years is long term.
[17:53:23] <r00t4rd3d> to/the*
[17:55:14] <fragalot> that is long term in the software business these days
[17:55:18] <fragalot> :P
[17:55:52] <fragalot> is it bad that since I started fixing my cnc mill, I now have 30 emails from ebay confirming I bought things,
[17:56:03] <fragalot> and that none of them are in any way related to the machine ._.
[17:56:59] <tandoori> man that is so awesome, i think i am going to just get the 3-axis mill now and get the 4th axis later
[17:57:09] <tandoori> because I found that same mill for like 1.3k
[17:57:16] <tandoori> without the 4th axis

[18:06:45] <r00t4rd3d> thats pretty old
[18:06:57] <r00t4rd3d> March 3, 2010 EMC 2.3.5 released
[18:06:58] <fragalot> awesome
[18:07:07] <fragalot> even when attempting to mill a surface flat, I get a 0.1mm bow
[18:07:33] <frallzor> I know its old, but is there a need to update? =)
[18:07:34] <fragalot> and a 0.13mm one on another axis
[18:08:12] -!- AR_ [AR_!~AR@Dyn149204.cc.lehigh.edu] has joined #linuxcnc
[18:08:44] <r00t4rd3d> frallzor, you can update it without losing everything i think
[18:09:22] <frallzor> might aswell do a clean install, never hurts
[18:09:29] <IchGuckLive> frallzor: please safe your config folder !!
[18:09:44] <frallzor> but the question is, any advantage doing an update?
[18:10:06] <frallzor> works fine as it is now, will never versions do something 2.3.5 doesnt?
[18:10:48] <fragalot> frallzor: "if it ain't broken, don't fix it" ?
[18:11:27] <frallzor> but the perfektionist in me screams "update, its allways good" =P
[18:11:52] <IchGuckLive> frallzor: why not getting the master from the buildbot
[18:12:35] <frallzor> Im not a linuxguy, so I prefer the idiot-proof way with live-cd
[18:13:28] <micges> frallzor: I agree with fragalot
[18:13:35] <tandoori> i know there are some people saying that there could be problems milling a pcb because of uneaven surfaces, but I am not really sure how that could be a problem as long as you have the proper depth to compensate, right?
[18:13:40] <tandoori> or am I missing something
[18:13:43] <fragalot> ffs
[18:14:15] <jthornton> why do people use .ui for a glade xml file?
[18:14:23] <fragalot> how on earth can a milled surface consistently skewed in relation to the spindle
[18:14:25] <frallzor> nothing improved with making "scripts" etc etc? not easier in later versions etc
[18:14:46] <jthornton> what version do you have?
[18:15:07] <jthornton> oh I see 2.3
[18:15:44] <jthornton> well in 2.4 you have ngcgui which is big boost in productivity for me ymmv
[18:17:43] <frallzor> hm nothing I really need if that is the biggest change then
[18:18:08] <micges> frallzor: http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Released_2.4.X
[18:18:13] <jthornton> well and all the bug fixes

[18:18:31] <pcw_home> tandoori: I think the problem with PCBs, especially if you don't have a vacuum table is that the PCB is not flat (there are programs that probe the surface first to make a height map for compensation)
[18:19:21] -!- Consolas has quit [Quit: Page closed]
[18:19:44] <frallzor> hmm might aswell update, never hurts
[18:19:48] <tandoori> pcw_home: ahhh, what is this vacuum table you speak of?
[18:20:07] <frallzor> only issue I had last time was not emc-related so why not =)
[18:20:53] -!- Santolina has quit [Ping timeout: 245 seconds]
[18:22:53] <pcw_home> tandoori: a box with a vacuum inside and holes on top that can hold thin sheets securely
[18:22:55] <pcw_home> to the top of the box via atmospheric pressure
[18:24:40] <jthornton> frallzor, make sure you follow the instructions on the wiki for updating
[18:24:58] <frallzor> Ill go clean with live-cd first
[18:25:00] <frallzor> so no biggie
[18:25:19] <jthornton> you still need to change a thing or two with your configs
[18:25:36] <fragalot> BAH
[18:25:47] <frallzor> ill go from scratch so Ill setup it again, just a few values to write down
[18:25:50] <frallzor> rest I can do again
[18:26:03] <jthornton> iirc one line has to be removed from the ini
[18:26:24] <frallzor> even if I do a "clean" live-cd install?
[18:26:24] <fragalot> freshly ground a V-cutter, took off one pass at 0.1mm, one at 0.25mm and one at 0.5mm ... all of them, when checked with a depth gauge, have the same bow
[18:26:27] <fragalot> how the hell
[18:26:50] <fragalot> (in PTFE)
[18:26:55] <jthornton> if you just copy your existing configs to a clean install of 2.5 you have to delete one line in the ini
[18:27:14] <tandoori> pcw_home: why couldn't you just clap it down?
[18:27:49] <fragalot> tandoori: vacuum provides an more even clamping, and is faster
[18:28:19] * fragalot afk
[18:28:33] <jthornton> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?UPDATING
[18:28:51] <jthornton> For configurations that have not customized emc.nml, remove the inifile line NML_FILE = emc.nml
[18:29:02] <frallzor> ah
[18:30:52] <jthornton> frallzor, do you use a joypad in your config?
[18:32:31] <frallzor> nope
[18:32:40] <frallzor> used to before I decided to update
[18:33:10] <IchGuckLive> someone knows wher i can get planet gear systems for steppers Nema 23
[18:33:16] <frallzor> but then I realized I no nothing about linux and my touchscreen decided to dislike any extra usb-units attached =)
[18:33:21] <frallzor> *know
[18:33:40] <frallzor> so I have been stuck with a keyboard
[18:33:56] <jthornton> what touchscreen do you have?
[18:34:07] <frallzor> uhm....
[18:34:24] <frallzor> the chipset was elo-something
[18:35:03] <frallzor> and was a bitch setting up in the dist bundled with the live-cd back then
[18:35:28] <frallzor> atleast for me, with later versions it just worked alá plug and play
[18:35:29] <jthornton> I have on elo touch screen and one I sent back as I never could get it to work
[18:36:04] <jthornton> I had to follow some instructions on the web to get the first one working and then manually calibrate it
[18:36:27] <frallzor> me too, but it never worked like It should have worked, but it was good enough for me then
[18:36:42] <frallzor> got help once setting it up, then it worked as should
[18:36:54] <frallzor> not its pretty coarse accuracy, but it works
[18:37:02] <frallzor> *now
[18:37:54] <frallzor> the current live-cd, is it the same dist as it was with 2.3.5?
[18:37:59] <frallzor> or a newer one?
[18:38:08] -!- skorasaurus has quit [Ping timeout: 255 seconds]
[18:38:38] <jthornton> the current livecd is Ubuntu 10.04 and LinuxCNC 2.5
[18:39:07] <frallzor> if so it might work flawlessly with this elo, since I recall the latest LTS-version back then (not the live-cd with emc) did love my touch
[18:58:19] <fragalot> any opinion here on the bosh colt as a low-power spindle?
[18:59:12] <fragalot> nvm, seems it's 110V only ._.

[19:39:21] <fragalot> i'm currently considering chucking my sable 2015 out the window & building a new one
[19:39:22] <Loetmichel> i thougth you had a cheaper source
[19:39:34] <fragalot> Loetmichel: do you have a cheaper source then?
[19:39:57] <Loetmichel> i know cnc-discount.. i order my linear slides and bb-spindles at chinese sellers
[19:40:20] <fragalot> I can't seem to find any via my ebay bubble
[19:40:23] <fragalot> :(
[19:40:27] <Loetmichel> even with tax and customs much cheaper
[19:41:24] <Loetmichel> fragalot: hmmm, hopefully you will sell it to a chap with more eagerness to get it repaired ?
[19:41:37] <Loetmichel> what about a cheap chinese complete solution?
[19:42:15] <fragalot> this WAS a cheap .. taiwanese.. complete solution
[19:42:16] <fragalot> xD
[19:42:27] <fragalot> it's just that I have no idea what's going on with this thing
[19:42:45] <fragalot> you mill something flat, so now that part is referenced to the axis, right?
[19:42:54] <fragalot> even done it with multiple passes at the same Z height

[19:51:35] <fragalot> for a DIY
[19:51:55] <fragalot> Loetmichel: I have but I can't seem to figure out where it goes
[19:52:29] <fragalot> if I measure from Z carriage to X rails, 0 play, Z carriage to chassis cover plate behind X rails, 0.01mm play
[19:52:35] <fragalot> both are within measuring error
[19:52:41] <r00t4rd3d> all usb mice should have micro sdcard slot in them
[19:52:43] <fragalot> if I measure bed to Z carriage, I do get some flex

[20:16:23] <frallzor> http://s3.pji.nu/product/standard/800/544551.jpg hmm could one use this to control a machine via linuxCNC? xy and then press a button to activate Z?

[20:16:47] <Loetmichel> ..right now, just the base plate is done
[20:17:00] <fragalot> do those normally have a round hole too or are they odd-shaped?
[20:17:20] <Loetmichel> will look something like thois hen done:
[20:17:21] <fragalot> frallzor: depends on how creative you get i'd say

[20:17:55] <fragalot> pretty

[20:18:15] <frallzor> nice build there

[20:19:11] <Loetmichel> fragalot: yeah, but too expensive

[20:22:58] <fragalot> torque box
[20:23:03] <Loetmichel> ah
[20:23:06] <Loetmichel> right
[20:23:08] <frallzor> http://imageshack.us/a/img208/4290/cnc3.jpg this look ok to you? just playing with some designs, I think this is the best (so far)
[20:23:17] <frallzor> torsion box
[20:23:20] <frallzor> I believe
[20:23:45] <Loetmichel> AR_: hrhr
[20:23:47] <fragalot> AR_: and a cool logo
[20:24:08] <fragalot> That said I bet it performs a whole lot better than this sable
[20:24:09] <fragalot> xD
[20:24:12] <roh> frallzor: nice, but lots of cuts
[20:24:19] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.microcarve.com/mcMV1.html
[20:24:28] <Loetmichel> i made a machine with 1500mm*1020mm*160mm travel out of (300kg) wood...
[20:24:37] <frallzor> roh no biggie with a machine to make a machine =)
[20:24:47] <roh> i wonder if one could design something which can be made by waterjet
[20:25:04] <roh> frallzor: if you got one big enough
[20:25:05] <Loetmichel> and it could go through 6mm FR4 with a 2mm mill bit at F4200... ;-)
[20:25:10] <fragalot> roh: don't see why not
[20:25:18] <fragalot> this sable looks jet cut
[20:25:25] <Loetmichel> without more than about 0,05mm deviation from the desired shape
[20:25:54] <frallzor> roh it looks bigger than it is I guess, about 1x0.5meter =)
[20:26:07] <Loetmichel> fraz: your pic looks familliar
[20:26:14] <Loetmichel> frallzor
[20:26:23] <JT-Shop> http://imagebin.org/244560
[20:26:39] <frallzor> wouldnt be surprised, many builds have inspired me =)
[20:26:47] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=4053
[20:26:50] <frallzor> so I guess one can spot many similarities
[20:26:55] <Loetmichel> thats the inside of:
[20:27:10] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=4935
[20:27:19] <Loetmichel> ... the big maschine i spoke oif ;-)
[20:27:21] <frallzor> torsion boxes are a must do with mdf =)
[20:27:30] <fragalot> kinda sad how my 3D printer made out of nothing but M8 rods, using 440mm long 8mm hardened rods feels more rigid than this 10mm alu plate machine
[20:27:33] <fragalot> xD
[20:27:39] <JT-Shop> a redesign with metal bar holders http://imagebin.org/244561
[20:28:05] <frallzor> oh Mr JT also designing a wooden machine?
[20:28:33] <JT-Shop> in my free time
[20:29:06] <Loetmichel> i use "siebdruckplatte", like a multi sheeet plywood glued with a water resistant resin rahter than white glue
[20:29:07] <JT-Shop> copying Loetmichel's design somewhat
[20:29:29] <JT-Shop> we can't get that at homless depot

[20:29:42] <Loetmichel> JT-Shop: feel freee
[20:29:55] <frallzor> f**k humidity =)
[20:30:04] <frallzor> a good workshop is a regulated one
[20:30:41] <frallzor> and no flood coolant of course

[20:33:01] <Loetmichel> and thatsw rigid as HELL
[20:33:22] <Loetmichel> for some wood ;-)
[20:34:43] <Loetmichel> frallzor: coward ;-)
[20:35:09] <Loetmichel> you just need to put the machine in vacuum and then soak it witrh resin ;-)
[20:35:22] <Loetmichel> than you can use fllood cooling ;:)
[20:36:05] <Loetmichel> JT-Shop: ask at Truck repair shops
[20:36:16] <Loetmichel> its often used as flat bed bottom plating
[20:37:06] <JT-Shop> they use oak boards over here for truck floors
[20:37:58] <Loetmichel> then i am out of ideas ;-)
[20:38:15] <JT-Shop> me too, and I looked around quite a bit
[20:43:50] <Loetmichel> i cantr nderstand that a wood dealer cant order that?
[20:44:26] <Loetmichel> is america so behind europe in wood selling
[20:44:50] <Loetmichel> (s/wood/junk made to wood boards)
[20:46:16] <AR_> wood selling
[20:47:30] <fragalot> Loetmichel: americans appear to have 0.5" tolerances on their wood too
[20:47:48] <fragalot> like a 2x4 isn't actually 2x4 inches due to tolerances
[20:48:14] <fragalot> here 100x150mm wooden beams are, surprisingly, 100x150mm :P
[20:48:34] <Loetmichel> fragalot: until you geht them honed.
[20:48:39] <JT-Shop> the tolerance is pretty tight for 2x4's but they don't measure 2 x 4 after milling
[20:48:52] <Loetmichel> then they are 96*144 or so
[20:49:17] -!- Poincare has quit [Quit: changing servers]
[20:49:21] <JT-Shop> pre-cut studs have a tight length tolerance but other lumber is usually an inch longer than nominal

[20:50:48] <fragalot> Loetmichel: last honed wooden stock I bought was pretty spot on size wise :/
[20:51:44] <fragalot> but they were listed as their actual size rather than the original size
[20:51:46] <fragalot> as it should be
[20:51:47] * fragalot nods
[20:53:01] * mrsun has failed once again :(
[20:53:21] <Loetmichel> fragalot:in the local "home depot ("toom baumarkt" they have 50 by 50mm stock raw... and 50 by 50 planed which are actual 48 by 48... which is printed on the lapbel in microscopic writing ;-)

[21:22:05] <gene77> so do I...
[21:22:18] <frallzor> I bought 10 bags for the vacuumcleaner today, 3 left =P
[21:22:24] <frallzor> and still loooooads more to clean
[21:22:38] <mrsun> frallzor, stop using bags then
[21:22:47] <mrsun> and get a bucket or something :P
[21:22:58] <mrsun> one of those you put inline with the vacuum
[21:23:00] <frallzor> its spread out everywhere so it wont do any good
[21:23:04] <gene77> I use the cylinder filter on a bucket top
[21:23:32] <Jymmm> frallzor: Stoop being such a slob!

[21:23:44] <Loetmichel> -o
[21:24:09] <frallzor> I have shop vac. but its a bitch to use that for other uses than the dust shoe =P
[21:24:25] <Jymmm> Loetmichel: then get a 2nd one
[21:24:54] <gene77> I have the lathe about 99% back together, so now I can make ball nut cage on the mill, and taperlock hubs on the lathe, as soon as I go ouit to Blakes & mooch a little steel.
[21:24:57] <Jymmm> maybe one with a BIG tank
