[04:00:28] <ReadError> did they finally remove all the malware?
[04:00:52] <Connor> As far as I know. I never had a issue with it. I use Chrome.. never had anything happen
[04:01:26] <ReadError> nah but for a while, google flagged them
[04:01:44] <Connor> not flagged any more.
[04:01:49] <ReadError> so if you went to visit it, it would say site known to distribute malware
[04:11:51] <r00t4rd3d> that happens once every 6 months or so
[04:12:18] <r00t4rd3d> probably from links in peoples signatures which since has been disabled.

[04:22:52] <Valen> that monkey does not look happy
[04:23:08] <Valen> all the animal people will be up in arms over that
[04:23:42] <Valen> handily forgetting all the worse things USA and USSR did when they were playing in the shallow edge of the pool
[04:23:45] <r00t4rd3d> just about every country that has rockets has launched animals into space
[04:24:23] <Valen> it seems though rather pointless these days

[06:46:15] <Connor> okay, so, does anyone know of any servo drivers that work with linuxcnc that let linuxcnc stay in the PID loop? hopefully not the really expensive ones..
[06:49:20] <archivist> home made ones :)
[06:49:57] <Connor> Yea, I'm thinking that's about it.. maybe a heavy duty H-Bridge and drive it via PWM..
[06:50:27] <Connor> Would have prefered that for my Spindle controller vs the KBCC-R
[06:50:53] <Loetmichel> mornin'
[06:52:48] <archivist> connor for an example of really cheap look at http://axis.unpythonic.net/etchcnc

[06:54:03] <archivist> Connor, and the servo update http://emergent.unpythonic.net/projects/01142347802
[06:55:49] <Connor> Hmm... Maybe not...
[06:55:55] -!- kwallace [kwallace!~kwallace@smb-74.sonnet.com] has parted #linuxcnc
[06:55:59] <Connor> that has a pot.. not sure it takes PWM in ??
[06:57:42] <Jymmm> It's like THIS |<----------------------------------------------->| for out of reach to insert he fuel line release tool all the way
[06:57:52] <Jymmm> s/for/far/
[06:58:24] <Jymmm> s/he/the/
[06:58:27] <archivist> Connor, look at my second link which is the servo upgrade to it http://emergent.unpythonic.net/projects/01142347802
[06:58:41] * Jymmm needs a 12" midget
[06:59:21] <Connor> archivist: I'm needing one that can do around 90v at 13.5amps.
[07:00:30] <archivist> you can make if you have the skills
[07:00:53] <archivist> a speed controller is not a servo driver though
[07:01:01] <Connor> I don't have a issue with making one.. I can follow a schematic.
[07:01:16] <Connor> just hoping to find something already done..
[07:01:50] <archivist> skunkworks, was developing one but then found some cheap on fleabay
[07:01:52] <Connor> wouldn't think it would be hard to find a servo driver that can do 90v at 13 or so amps that works in velocity(speed) mode that doesn't cost so damn much
[07:03:15] <archivist> but for best servo control you do need some form of fpga card
[07:03:52] <archivist> because the encoder signals are too fast for the parallel port direct
[07:04:24] <Connor> yea. Was going to use mesa.

[09:16:06] <Jymmm> It's out and on my bench!!!!!!!
[09:16:35] <archivist> at this point you find it is the external wiring at fault
[09:16:59] <Jymmm> external to where?
[09:17:03] <Jymmm> the harness?
[09:17:09] <archivist> :)
[09:17:26] <Jymmm> Yeah, Murphy is a dead man when I catch him =)
[09:17:42] <Jymmm> But.... I made sure that was NOT the case in this instanance....
[09:18:04] <Jymmm> 1) I checked the hharness at the last connector.... 12V
[09:18:24] <Jymmm> 2) I hit the pump directly with 12V from the battery, nada
[09:18:28] <archivist> I took a gearbox out once, was a siezed bush out side the box on the selector mechanism no need to take the box to bits at all

[09:20:05] <Jymmm> If you drop the spare tire, there is actually enough room to remove the fuel pump/sender assembly just above it.
[09:20:31] <Jymmm> This should be the same for Expedition, Navigator, and maybe F-150 series
[09:20:39] <Jymmm> Mine is 2001
[09:21:29] <Jymmm> Actually, there's enough room up there to smuggle someone it they're small enough
[09:23:22] <Jymmm> archivist: Now, watch the fucking pump I got today be the wrong one. It already smells of gasoline (used or factory tested?), suppose to be NEW

[13:13:41] <mrsun> atleast it cut like butter compared to the broken off corners etc it had before
[13:13:45] <mrsun> was realy torn up
[13:14:05] <mrsun> and the hole size is there to be sloppy for adjustment so =)
[13:14:18] <mrsun> no problem that it got bigger, have to train on this tho, drillbits are expensive =)
[13:15:47] <archivist> if close to size hand stone to adjust the short sid a bit
[13:16:06] <mrsun> oh =)
[13:16:12] <Loetmichel> mrsun: a trained grinder needs no gauge ;-)
[13:16:24] <mrsun> Loetmichel, well this is the first time for me :P
[13:16:30] <jthornton> there are a couple of good vidoes out there on hand sharpening bits
[13:16:32] <mrsun> and im sure that the trained grinders had one to begin with also :P
[13:16:33] * archivist giggles at the term trained
[13:16:58] * Loetmichel had used tha drill grinding as a "relax time" in his apprentice-time.
[13:17:43] <Loetmichel> whenever oi had no drve to do may regular wort i had broken ean drill bita and asked the boss "i have to regrind it, can i?"

[15:38:44] <cradek> if only I needed something, now would be a good time to get it.
[15:38:48] <jdh> anyone have an estimate of how fast a cheap chinese 40w co2 laser can cut 0.25" acrylic type stuff?
[15:39:15] <jdh> I was at a vendor site yesterday. They had a well worn Enco mill sitting next to a Haas

[15:46:26] <seb_kuzm1nsky> i'm converting an enco g0704 from manual to cnc with some friends at the hackspace
[15:46:46] <seb_kuzm1nsky> they're all 3d printer people venturing into machining for the first time
[15:46:50] <jdh> grizzly g0704?
[15:46:54] <seb_kuzm1nsky> yeah
[15:47:02] <seb_kuzm1nsky> that's what i meant ;-)
[15:47:21] <seb_kuzm1nsky> it's interesting how different their view is on what constitutes a useful cad drawing
[15:47:29] <seb_kuzm1nsky> they're used to just "make an stl and hit print"
[15:47:46] <seb_kuzm1nsky> no worries about setups & work holding, tool choice, order of operations...
[15:48:03] <jdh> work holding is my biggest problem.
[15:48:49] <cradek> unfortunately that looks like a pretty poor machine for cnc
[15:49:01] <cradek> are you changing the screws or just sticking motors on it?
[15:49:13] <seb_kuzm1nsky> we can't aford new screws :-/
[15:49:16] <seb_kuzm1nsky> afford
[15:50:04] <seb_kuzm1nsky> cradek: iirc i once considered converting a sieg x2, whcih is even less suited to it!
[15:50:07] <jdh> I paid $199 for chinese screws for mine.
[15:50:34] <seb_kuzm1nsky> jdh: wow, that's cheap! ballscrews and nuts, or just ballscrews?
[15:50:50] <jdh> machined ballscrews & nuts
[15:50:57] <cradek> I converted a sherline lathe, and it actually works pretty well
[15:51:00] <seb_kuzm1nsky> hmmmm, got a link?
[15:51:14] <jdh> I could send you the guys email

[18:12:50] <skunkworks> no - right to linuxcnc
[18:12:57] <archivist> the encoder goes to the mesa card
[18:13:02] <skunkworks> right
[18:13:32] <skunkworks> Connor, amc drives are usually pretty cheap on ebay. they have brushed/brushless
[18:13:33] <Connor> Some of the higher end servo drivers I've looked at, takes the encoder in, and outputs it too.. I think so it can handle the velocity side maybe?
[18:13:47] <skunkworks> yes - usually
[18:14:13] <archivist> some people have differing definitions of cheap
[18:14:30] <skunkworks> heh - cheaper than new
[18:14:31] * jthornton likes that
[18:14:34] <Connor> On price point or under of the Gecko.
[18:15:40] <skunkworks> connor - brushed or brushless?

[18:22:04] <Connor> Just look for Advanced Motion Controls.. I looked at them last night.. I was just confused.. I was expecting to see them take the encoder info in and send it out so they could handle the speed/velocity..
[18:22:16] <skunkworks> some do - some don't
[18:22:32] <skunkworks> The BE's do - but the b's usually only take tach
[18:22:37] <Connor> I guess, the truth of the mater is.. for what i'm thinking of using this for.. a Gecko might work just fine.

[18:23:40] <Connor> Looking for 4th axis. Going to use my original G0704 motor for it.. add a AMT102 encoder to it.. and direct drive a 7x lathe spindle.
[18:24:24] <Connor> What to be able to do lathe mode and index mode with it.. Figured a servo would be best way to go.

[18:38:10] <archivist> will there be conflicting requirements lathe v indexing
[18:38:29] <Connor> archivist: Explain ?
[18:39:05] <archivist> any spindle brake for indexing and what use case
[18:40:00] <archivist> and any accuracy needs when indexing
[18:40:13] <Connor> archivist: Are you saying there will be conflicting requirements? You phrased it as a question.. so, I'm confused.
[18:42:18] <pcw_home> You would need a pretty high res encoder for decent indexing
[18:42:31] <archivist> when indexing how rigidly held by the servo against what radius of cutting force
[18:42:44] <Connor> those AMT's will do 2048 PPR
[18:42:48] -!- chopper79 has quit [Quit: Leaving.]
[18:43:41] <archivist> for a 500 tooth gear you could be cutting that is a poor resolution
[18:44:14] <pcw_home> I would think a brake would be required for a direct drive indexing
[18:44:49] <pcw_home> Or a pretty heavy chuck
[18:45:18] <Connor> I'm still working on other things ATM.. this is long term idea..
[18:45:23] <Connor> just trying to figure out what's needed.
[18:45:51] <Connor> Maybe gearing it down will be needed.. I don't recall the RPM of the motor..
[18:46:13] <archivist> or a large radius servo motor so it has the torque...but then its poor at speed for lathe
[18:46:14] <Connor> I know it could do 3000RPM on the Mill before I removed it.. and that was geared down.
[18:47:46] <jdh> how about two motors... normal one for lathe mode. Or pulley/stepper for index

[20:46:28] <anonimasu> pneumatics is like electrics pretty much air in stuff moves.. (tho you have a return line)
[20:46:35] <ssi> I thought that was what was wrong
[20:46:37] <anonimasu> take stuff apart label it and clean
[20:46:47] <ssi> I started disassembling things, and discovered that there was a broken check valve
[20:46:51] <anonimasu> also, air valves are tiny so tiny shit sticks inside
[20:47:04] <ssi> I replaced the check valve ($260 from hardinge :()
[20:47:08] <anonimasu> check valve = diodes for air systems
[20:47:12] <ssi> and put it back together, and now it's broken differently
[20:47:22] <jdh> progress!
[20:47:30] <ssi> I think it might be the four way solenoid valve on the backside, but I don't know how to go about testing it

[20:47:36] <frallzor> hmm will the guide for adding gamepad as pendant work for 2.5?
[20:47:48] <ssi> I bet pcw would remember what he did for me
[20:47:52] <anonimasu> maybe you have debris from the broken valve somewhere further away
[20:48:42] <anonimasu> what you can do is manually push the valves(they usually have a dot) to make them act
[20:49:02] <ssi> it's a clipper valve
[20:49:13] <anonimasu> it shouldnt be overly heavy so you can see if something is stuck
[20:49:28] <Nick001-Shop> dicsoneect the hardige lines and add your own lines - use an airgun on the diffent lines to see if the turret reacts
[20:49:45] <anonimasu> manually running hte valves should work if there's pressure to them

[20:53:13] <anonimasu> dosent look like you can manually make it act.

[20:53:57] <ssi> yeah, a stupid old valve in a stupid old machine :P
[20:55:03] <anonimasu> can you hear it click when actuating?

[20:58:08] <ssi> again, I don't think that'd be feasible
[20:58:14] <ssi> I'd have to show you
[20:58:23] <ssi> I hate pneumatics :P
[20:58:58] <anonimasu> hehe, hydraulics are just the same
[20:59:36] <ssi> the valve block is a hunk of aluminum flatbar with a zillion holes drilled in it that screws up against parts of the machine and switches a dozen little air pathways
[20:59:43] <ssi> and that clippard valve is what switches its flows
[20:59:45] <ssi> it's complex as shit
[21:00:02] <anonimasu> it's a 4 way pilot valve
[21:00:27] <ssi> that doesn't mean much to me :'(
[21:00:37] <ssi> I have the pneumo schematics actually
[21:00:38] <anonimasu> it means you have 4 different air pathways inside
[21:00:43] <ssi> but I'm retarded with pneumatics
[21:00:51] <anonimasu> for the air to flow
[21:01:05] <anonimasu> http://www.ingersollrandproducts.com/ap-en/products/fluid/pneumatic-valves-and-cylinders/pneumatic-valves/maxair-series/4-way-air-solenoid-and-pilot-valves
[21:01:23] <anonimasu> see the blocks in the drawing with arrows?
[21:01:40] <ssi> yea I know
[21:01:40] <ssi> http://www.clippard.com/downloads/PDF_Documents/Clippard%20Full%20Line%20Catalog/Clippard%20Catalog%20by%20Page%20Number/226-287%20Modular%20Valves/Page%20270.pdf
[21:01:42] <anonimasu> when actuated it goes one way when released the spring makes it shift the other way..
[21:01:43] <ssi> there's the actual valve
[21:01:46] <anonimasu> and you see where the air goes by that
[21:02:54] <ssi> and here:
[21:02:55] <ssi> https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BB93hDcCUAEyFFo.jpg:large

[21:03:21] -!- Brandonian has quit [Quit: Brandonian]
[21:03:39] <anonimasu> i'd check and clean the check valves
[21:03:55] <anonimasu> then look at the valves(if possible swap them around)
[21:04:27] <anonimasu> (only one and I guess that's the one you already checked)
[21:05:13] <ssi> there's another one that's involved with the turret cushion, another thing I don't really understand
[21:05:20] <ssi> but I haven't taken any of that apart, and frankly I'm scared to :P
[21:05:34] <ssi> I had the actual turret off the machine once and holy shit that is scary
[21:05:35] <ssi> :D
[21:05:50] <Nick001-Shop> does the turret rise at all?
[21:05:54] <anonimasu> hehe, I know I repaired my duplomatic one a million times -_-
[21:05:59] <anonimasu> they have a awful design.
[21:06:11] <anonimasu> switches cams and lock pins and solenoids..
[21:06:37] <ssi> Nick001-Shop: I think now it doesn't
[21:06:41] <anonimasu> I had to re-seal everything because it took coolant into the turret switch.
[21:06:47] <anonimasu> (encoder)
[21:06:54] <ssi> last I checked, when I aired the system, it sounded like a major air leak
[21:07:07] <ssi> and if I gave a toolchange command, it'd switch to a slightly less major air leak for a second, and nothing would move
[21:07:13] <anonimasu> that's a good sign
[21:07:18] <ssi> is it? :P
[21:07:30] <anonimasu> that means you can actually find something wrong instead of dissassembling every valve..
[21:07:42] <anonimasu> feel where the airlines go and try to feel if it blows
[21:07:49] <ssi> how much beer would it take to get one of you to just come over? :D
[21:08:00] <anonimasu> it'd take a airplane.
[21:08:04] <ssi> well you're in luck
[21:08:06] <ssi> I have one of those
[21:08:20] <ssi> actually I have two of those, but one's not flying yet
[21:08:26] <anonimasu> im in north sweden.. pretty much in the forest
[21:08:29] <Nick001-Shop> and a lot of gas -)
[21:08:31] <ssi> shit that'd be a long flight
[21:08:46] <anonimasu> i think like 17 hours
[21:08:51] <ssi> haha not in my airplane
[21:08:53] <anonimasu> on a boeing
[21:08:53] <ssi> it'd take a week

[21:10:09] <ssi> yeah, me too
[21:10:11] <ssi> wtf was I thinking :P
[21:10:24] <anonimasu> my old lathe has been pretty much dissassembled into microns before even making parts

[21:10:46] <anonimasu> but now it does 12 hours of continous cutting without messing
[21:11:03] <ssi> my hardinge works pretty well... or at least it did before the turret quit
[21:11:18] <anonimasu> and I know enough to fix it if it breaks
[21:11:35] <anonimasu> I dont know how I made decent parts without a cnc lathe.(proper one)
[21:14:05] <anonimasu> now I have to actually give tolerance to fit things togther then aiming for nominal size and hoi
[21:14:21] <anonimasu> hoping it'll go togther because of measuring errors and tool deflection :D
[21:14:50] <ssi> haha yeah
[21:15:04] <ssi> I've been very impressed with the precision of the hardinge
[21:15:18] <ssi> it's a nice machine, it's just old and cranky
[21:15:26] <anonimasu> I cut a part and forgot to add 0.07mm for the fit, it went to 70.00+/-0.00
[21:15:53] <anonimasu> (usually it's the other way around)
[21:16:23] <anonimasu> i like it when you ask someone how tight they want things and they say "DEAD ON!"
[21:16:52] <ssi> yep
[21:17:03] <anonimasu> for one off stuff(it's funny when they realize you told them that you want to give a bit of space so things will go togther and they were arguing not to)
[21:17:36] -!- motioncontrol has quit [Quit: Sto andando via]
[21:17:38] <mrsun> oh more swedish people
[21:17:47] <ssi> I have a part that I make for a guy, and the design calls for a 2" OD with a fine surface finish
[21:17:47] <anonimasu> yep :)
[21:17:54] <ssi> and the OD doesn't matter, because it doesn't fit anything else
[21:18:00] <ssi> he's more concerned about the look of it
[21:18:14] <ssi> and it was a battle to convince him to let me turn it to 1.95"
[21:18:18] <anonimasu> we made some shafts that would stick in the bearings we made them for because of dust it was pretty cool
[21:18:28] <ssi> because I'd need to start with 2.25" stock to get a 2.00" turned finish
[21:18:32] <ssi> and it's wasteful as hell
[21:18:54] <Connor> ssi ROFL
[21:19:11] <Connor> Should have just done it and not told him.
[21:19:16] <ssi> yeah seriously :P
[21:19:26] <anonimasu> engineers... -_-
[21:19:45] <ssi> he sent me another design that's sorta hat shaped, and it has this thin brim that's almost 4" diameter
[21:19:50] <ssi> and the 4" stock alone just costs a fortune
[21:19:52] <ssi> and he didn't like my price
[21:20:10] <Connor> What are these parts for ?
[21:20:11] <ssi> he found some shop in mexico that made them for less than I could buy the metal
[21:20:17] <ssi> subframe bushings for cars
[21:20:26] <mrsun> weld on a ring? :P
[21:20:30] <ssi> apparently the shop he used had drop that worked for the part
[21:20:39] <anonimasu> tell me about it . I have 450eur steel shaft 1/2 meter of it..
[21:21:12] <anonimasu> 130mm bar of ss2225 or 2541 cant remember now
[21:21:15] <Connor> Weld flat stock on to the part and turn it down..
[21:21:20] <mrsun> anonimasu, so he had this bar of steel ... and ... :P
[21:21:39] <anonimasu> just stupid expensive
[21:21:43] <Tom_itx> Connor, that would change the metalurgy
[21:21:52] <anonimasu> and 30mm on dia will go to chips of it..
[21:22:04] <Tom_itx> it would need heat treat afterward
[21:22:07] <mrsun> mmm chips
[21:22:20] <Tom_itx> cheaper to get oversize stock
[21:22:36] <anonimasu> yep and it'll atually turn out good :)
[21:22:46] <ssi> tom: agreed
[21:22:53] <ssi> it was even cheaper for me just to not screw with it
[21:22:58] <anonimasu> welding things togther never goes quite good either
[21:22:58] <ssi> he wanted to pay next to nothing for these parts
[21:23:04] <mrsun> glue on a piece of stock on it then!
[21:23:05] <ssi> and they're car suspension parts... no thanks :P
[21:23:12] <mrsun> superglue can lift a car ;)
[21:23:16] <Tom_itx> yeah tell him to send it out to china for bid
[21:23:18] <ssi> I think he ended up paying like $17 per pair for them
[21:23:44] <ssi> and the raw material would have been 4" dia round bar 6061T6, about 4" each
[21:23:48] <ssi> that shit's not cheap
[21:23:54] <mrsun> people think that machine work and material is so cheap
[21:23:57] <anonimasu> if I build suspension parts for someone i'd be damn sure to call out for a material spec.
[21:24:00] <Tom_itx> i can get that surplus
[21:24:08] <Tom_itx> probably up to 24" diameter
[21:24:18] <mrsun> if they come with a special thing that need to be made they cant expect it to cost like something that is churned out in the millions :P
