[02:45:27] <Connor> Looking at maybe using one instead of a SSR for Spindle.
[02:45:53] <Connor> Just don't know anything about them. They look rather large too.
[02:46:04] <Connor> I'm probably over thinking it.
[02:46:07] <ReadError> well crap
[02:46:19] <ReadError> ive managed to crash my box 2 times in a row now
[02:46:20] <Jymmm> Then, no I don't know nuttin bout em.
[02:46:25] <ReadError> editing and saving my .ini
[02:46:35] <ReadError> tainted gnome this last time
[02:46:45] <ReadError> may need to grab a SSD
[02:46:49] <ReadError> might as well get a new case...
[02:47:05] <Jymmm> Yeah, cause those thigns prevent a mobo from crashing.
[02:48:53] <ReadError> lol

[03:00:56] <ReadError> sup brah
[03:01:52] <ReadError> hey tjb1
[03:01:57] <ReadError> you using backlash compensation ?
[03:02:00] <ReadError> for your plasma
[03:02:15] <tjb1> no
[03:02:20] <tjb1> Its down at the moment
[03:02:34] <ReadError> well when you had it up
[03:02:40] <ReadError> how was the backlash ?
[03:03:13] <tjb1> I never checked it
[03:03:35] <tjb1> It wasnt up very long
[03:05:00] -!- tandoori has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[03:06:13] <ReadError> i was thinking about getting those inductive endstops
[03:06:22] <ReadError> but hes out of stock right now..
[03:06:48] <tjb1> Ugh, dont get me started on those
[03:07:04] <tjb1> I dont know if its because I have $2 chinese ones or if the other computer sucked but mine werent working
[03:08:38] <ReadError> his have the LEDs and all that fancy stuff
[03:08:41] <ReadError> but expensive
[03:09:23] <tjb1> Mine have LEDs but I cant justify the $134 for one
[03:09:26] <tjb1> Thats what they are right?
[03:09:43] <ReadError> nah its 134 for the entire set
[03:09:45] <ReadError> like 5 of em
[03:09:48] <ReadError> and wires and crap
[03:09:50] <tjb1> Are you sure
[03:09:51] <ReadError> or 124
[03:10:12] <tjb1> Oh wow
[03:10:16] <tjb1> $129...
[03:10:27] <tjb1> I could do that, hell I thought it was $129 for 1
[03:10:41] <ReadError> http://www.cncrouterparts.com/proximity-limit-switch-kit-p-215.html
[03:10:41] <tjb1> Maybe a quality prox sensor would take care of my problem
[03:10:45] <ReadError> yea
[03:10:57] <ReadError> i mean with the brackets, wiring, sensors *5
[03:11:00] <ReadError> its not that bad
[03:11:02] <tjb1> They must work since he has them like that
[03:11:16] <tjb1> A lot of people say its bad to have them like that
[03:11:36] <ReadError> like how?
[03:11:47] <tjb1> Where the carriage can physically hit them
[03:12:11] <ReadError> well it looks like thin metal
[03:12:18] <ReadError> so im sure it can give if something isnt right
[03:12:53] <tjb1> Im sure I could buy just 3 switches off of him
[03:13:32] <tjb1> Im gonna guess they are roughly $20 each
[03:13:34] <ReadError> well if you have 4
[03:13:40] <ReadError> you can completely center it
[03:13:46] <tjb1> 4?
[03:13:49] <ReadError> yea
[03:13:54] <ReadError> 2 for x and y axis each
[03:13:55] <tjb1> I use 4 but I have 1 per axis and one on the floating head
[03:14:05] -!- Guest10383 has quit [Quit: KVIrc 4.0.4 Insomnia http://www.kvirc.net/]
[03:14:08] <tjb1> Why do you need 4?
[03:14:10] <ReadError> so yea, 5 would get you good and proper
[03:14:12] <tjb1> I use 1
[03:14:21] <tjb1> Dont mount the switch to the machine
[03:14:27] -!- Keknom has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
[03:14:31] <ReadError> http://www.cncrouterparts.com/proximity-limit-switch-instructions-p-216.html
[03:14:31] <tjb1> Mount it to the carriage and put two triggers on
[03:14:42] <tjb1> Thats dumb
[03:14:47] <ReadError> ah
[03:14:54] <ReadError> so a piece of steel sticking out?
[03:14:58] <r00t4rd3d> limit switches are for girls
[03:15:02] <tjb1> I used socket head cap screws
[03:15:05] <ReadError> your mom is a girl
[03:15:06] <ReadError> wait...
[03:15:08] <tjb1> Let me see if I can find a picture
[03:15:15] <tjb1> Some of us use machines that have over 12" travel ;)
[03:15:30] <r00t4rd3d> all my axis have over 12
[03:15:36] <tjb1> 12.5?
[03:16:35] <tjb1> http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/530587_4469490131338_930172937_n.jpg
[03:16:41] <tjb1> I have two triggers set for the one on the right
[03:17:02] <r00t4rd3d> i have a nice set of limit switches, still in the package.
[03:17:52] <tjb1> I know I took a picture of it…where it is, who knows
[03:18:02] <tjb1> But in this one you can see the mount for one of the prox sensors - http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash4/430006_4483057310509_1353068263_n.jpg
[03:19:01] <ReadError> see im paranoid about getting long steel like that
[03:19:06] <ReadError> im afraid it will be bent
[03:19:20] <ReadError> atleast if i get it from ahren i can hit him up and be like, man, its bent
[03:19:25] <tjb1> I'm paranoid about piecing together a bunch of little ones
[03:19:41] <tjb1> I'd never have something like that shipped
[03:19:43] <ReadError> yea, would be hard to get it all even and stuff
[03:20:01] <tjb1> Corners are sharp as hell though
[03:21:20] <jdh> I have some cheap chinese switches
[03:21:25] <ReadError> decided to go with the 48x48
[03:21:33] <ReadError> since it has 3060 on the Y
[03:21:38] <r00t4rd3d> http://i.imgur.com/ytH2x5K.jpg
[03:21:55] <tjb1> Did they die
[03:22:09] <r00t4rd3d> dont know
[03:22:21] <ReadError> doesnt look like it
[03:22:29] <r00t4rd3d> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULOdhTJ3uBg&feature=youtu.be
[03:22:33] <r00t4rd3d> watch it
[03:22:56] <tjb1> ReadError: My gantry is only 3030
[03:23:09] <tjb1> But then again it has 4x1/4" flat stock bolted to it also
[03:23:20] <ReadError> but you arent putting a load on it
[03:23:26] <ReadError> im going to be doing some aluminum and stuff
[03:23:26] <r00t4rd3d> i need a piece of crs
[03:23:28] <tjb1> I was going to add a router
[03:23:29] <ReadError> so i want it pretty rigid
[03:23:45] <tjb1> That aluminum is pretty damn strong :)
[03:23:57] <tjb1> Is it really 3060 or just two pieces of 3030?
[03:26:53] <ReadError> says 3060
[03:26:58] <ReadError> not sure what the difference is
[03:27:02] <ReadError> i think theres more steel too
[03:27:06] <ReadError> since its taller
[03:27:08] <tjb1> 3060 is one piece
[03:27:13] <tjb1> 3"x6"
[03:27:26] <tjb1> Its not more steel, I think its 2" wide stuff
[03:27:40] <ReadError> either way
[03:27:48] <ReadError> im gonna take over r00t4rd3d's gun and box biz
[03:27:50] <ReadError> ;)
[03:28:04] <ReadError> wood guns and paradise boxes
[03:28:13] <tjb1> Heh
[03:28:21] <tjb1> Add a plasma and Ill cut your machine in half >:(
[03:28:56] <tjb1> I cant get a piece of plywood to workout on a 3d printer, I dont know how people build whole routers out of wood
[03:29:24] <ReadError> yea im not a fan of wood

[03:36:00] <ReadError> well, electrical fire
[03:37:43] <ReadError> i need to tear this mill down after i get my router done
[03:37:47] <ReadError> and give it some TLC
[03:41:38] <tjb1> highest voltage in my control panel is 120 :P
[03:42:00] <ReadError> yea but what about that plasma coming out?
[03:42:08] <ReadError> surely that would give me a good jolt/burn
[03:42:15] <tjb1> Duh :P

[03:57:32] <ReadError> i cant decide what to go with
[03:57:34] <ReadError> router or spindle
[03:59:07] <tjb1> spindles are fair bit more complicated
[03:59:16] <tjb1> Much more than I would like to venture into at this time
[03:59:32] <ReadError> yea but with a VFD hooked up
[03:59:34] <ReadError> nommmss
[03:59:43] <tjb1> superpid the dwp611
[04:00:02] <ReadError> yea but for that price, you can get the spindle+VFD
[04:00:11] <tjb1> A cheap spindle and VFD
[04:00:25] <tjb1> You really want a chinese vfd in charge of your spindle?
[04:00:54] <r00t4rd3d> wheres the superpid come from?
[04:00:56] <jdh> sure
[04:02:06] <r00t4rd3d> odd to hear a hb lover shit talk chinese goods...

[04:03:19] <ReadError> true story.

[04:20:44] <L84Supper> sorry to intrude, but what's HF?
[04:21:19] <L84Supper> sorry , <answer above>
[04:21:47] <ReadError> harbor freight
[04:21:54] <L84Supper> HF is actually a step up from China itself
[04:21:56] <ReadError> its where they sell super low quality tools
[04:22:03] <ReadError> from china...
[04:22:21] <L84Supper> went tool shopping in Beijing last week
[04:22:36] <L84Supper> most stores had Stanley as their top brand
[04:22:38] <ReadError> anything decent ?
[04:22:40] <ReadError> ah wow
[04:22:42] <ReadError> super cheap?
[04:23:04] <cjd406> i am working with tripod kinematics and have run into a problem
[04:23:05] <L84Supper> you have to order from the et
[04:23:12] <L84Supper> et/et
[04:23:16] <cjd406> where when i switch from joint to world view my steppers nuts and the back plot reads -nan for each axis
[04:23:18] <L84Supper> net
[04:23:42] <L84Supper> tools and parts are really low cost
[04:23:58] <L84Supper> plus you haggle for price
[04:25:07] <zultron> I hate all that haggling, so I always shop taobao when I'm in China.
[04:25:16] <L84Supper> and hardware stores are entire malls with 200+ stores all about 15 sq meters
[04:26:07] <L84Supper> zultron: yeah, but some days I needed things "right now"
[04:26:13] <zultron> Those markets are great, though, just to walk through.
[04:26:36] <L84Supper> the electronic malls are great
[04:26:42] <zultron> Nothing near equivalent in the US.
[04:27:13] <L84Supper> haven't found a good fastener place near Shanghai/suzhou/nanging yet
[04:27:36] <ReadError> i would go in pawn stars style
[04:27:46] <ReadError> "you are selling this for 100$, ill give you 50"

[04:28:48] <zultron> Ever been to Yiwu in Zhejiang province where all the factories show their wares to buyers?
[04:28:59] <ReadError> so you have to ask them?
[04:29:03] <zultron> I heard that's an incredible sight. Never been myself.
[04:29:23] <L84Supper> if I'm around the price is always higher, instant price bump for foreigners
[04:30:23] <zultron> Heh, yep, I always bring a Chinese at the more touristy markets, or I'll pay 3x.
[04:30:26] <L84Supper> zultron: thats about an hour or so south of Suzhou, I haven't been down there
[04:31:28] <L84Supper> sometimes I have to jump in and just say stop, it's not worth haggling for 15 minutes over 10 RMB ($1.5USD)
[04:31:31] -!- tjb1 has quit [Quit: tjb1]
[04:31:54] <zultron> We went to buy some kites once, in Suzhou actually, and after we bought them, we had a conversation with the shop owner who said they simply wouldn't give a foreigner the same price they'd give their compatriots.
[04:32:05] <L84Supper> yeah
[04:32:23] <zultron> It sounded like it was a matter of honor or something. ha!
[04:33:43] <L84Supper> their time is worth very little
[04:34:12] <zultron> Well, especially the folks in the shop. They sit around most of the time.
[04:35:32] <L84Supper> it's nice to not get a 30 second commercial/upsell where ever you go, but at the same time waiters/bartenders/bellmen/salespeople tend to ignore you
[04:36:22] <zultron> Where do you get the upsells?
[04:36:42] <L84Supper> just about anywhere in the USA
[04:36:49] <zultron> Oh, got it.
[04:37:20] <L84Supper> "can i just pay and go please"
[04:37:30] <zultron> In China you have to get used to yelling at people.
[04:37:44] <zultron> Not angry yelling, just get their attention yelling.
[04:38:01] <L84Supper> and not wanting to strangle people
[04:38:02] <zultron> FUWUYUAN! MAI-DAN!
[04:38:32] <zultron> Heh, yeah.
[04:38:35] <L84Supper> just got back from Korea

[04:39:27] <zultron> Never been. Went to Japan for a while when I lived in Beijing, and that was great. Everyone is so polite and respectful.
[04:39:53] <L84Supper> japan has my vote except for the fallout

[04:40:14] <L84Supper> they are nice to you even if they don't like you
[04:40:26] <zultron> I had trouble communicating there, though, nobody speaks English, and I don't speak Japanese at all.
[04:40:36] <L84Supper> for the most part
[04:40:48] <L84Supper> zultron: what part of beijing?
[04:40:57] <zultron> Haidian District
[04:41:07] <zultron> Near Tsinghua U
[04:41:15] <r00t4rd3d> those drone videos were not meant to be shown
[04:41:33] <L84Supper> zultron: was there 3 weeks ago
[04:42:02] <zultron> Nice! There were some electronic component markets right there that I really miss.
[04:42:38] <L84Supper> zultron: I spent the week at a hotel at the convention center/Olympic park
[04:43:10] <zultron> Oh yeah, that's pretty close.
[04:43:17] <L84Supper> took the subway to Haidian District
[04:43:31] <zultron> I was there in 2008 actually. It was nuts.

[04:43:50] <L84Supper> they are building some new tower there
[04:44:00] <L84Supper> looks really interesting
[04:44:23] <zultron> Interesting shape? or...?
[04:45:11] <L84Supper> yeah, if the platforms are open it like the dubai hotel with the outdoor tennis court, only these are the big enough for soccer
[04:45:49] <zultron> They've got a weird mix of stuff over there. Bizarrely-shaped ultra-modern buildings, right next to traditional buildings hundreds of years old, right next to a construction site surrounded by workers' shanties.

[17:38:04] <anonimasu> 130mm dia and they go down to 100mm and 80 when dne
[17:38:05] <anonimasu> done
[17:38:28] <anonimasu> then off to harden and finish machine with a pcbn insert..
[17:38:52] <Icekiller> IchGuckLive :P wth man

[17:42:12] <anonimasu> it'll be interesting to say at least.
[17:44:07] <archivist> finish after harden can mean it starts bending as you release strain :)

[17:48:36] <anonimasu> the hardener I have locally said that the dimensional change is usually around 0.2%
[17:48:37] <Loetmichel> case hardening with 1mm work left to do is calling for trible i would think
[17:49:25] <anonimasu> if it dosent work well enough i'll nitride harden them and machine to final size +/- a few um

[18:46:01] <jeeves_moss> coudl someone here reccomend a good home machinist channel? I know this is for CNC, but a quick google didn't reviel anything
[18:46:28] <IchGuckLive> here you are right
[18:46:33] <IchGuckLive> jeeves_moss:
[18:46:42] <IchGuckLive> continent Europ or USA
[18:47:29] <jeeves_moss> Canada
[18:47:51] <jeeves_moss> right now, it dosen't matter. I'm just looking for advice on how to properly bore a blind hole without breaking the cutter
[18:48:05] <archivist> carefully
[18:48:33] <jeeves_moss> lol, thanks for the update
[18:48:37] <archivist> putting a rigid stop would help
[18:49:18] <archivist> and listen to the cutter
[18:49:31] <jeeves_moss> I was thinking of setting up the mill so that the Z axis would have a hard stop at the depth I wanted (first put the bar in and "bottom it out" without the mill running, then move the cutter the the center, and pull it down to the stop)
[18:50:22] <jeeves_moss> the hole needs to be finished to 1.125, so I was thinking of center drilling it with a 3/8, then use a 2 flute 1" end mill to "get it there", then bore it out the final 0.125
[18:50:28] <archivist> mill... bore a blind hole would normally imply lathe :)
[18:51:24] <jeeves_moss> lol, naaa. I'm doing this the hard way. this dumb sterling engine is starting to make my head hurt.
[18:52:03] <jeeves_moss> and the old 10" lathe I have moves around a lot. it's only good for rough stuff at the size of the hot cap I'm making. someone sudgested that I make up the hot cap from flat stock, and some pipe
[18:52:30] <archivist> do you have a rotary table
[18:52:43] <jeeves_moss> and since I'm a computer engineer, my first idea was to just CNC this mess. But I needed a challange.
[18:52:53] <jeeves_moss> and yes, I have a rotary table
[18:53:22] <Jymmm> Want a challenge? duct tape and bailing wire.
[18:53:39] <jeeves_moss> lol. that's how most of my networks are held togethere
[18:53:45] <archivist> you can use smaller cutters and helical bore using the rotary
[18:54:40] <jeeves_moss> this is what I found on-line so far http://www.jjjtrain.com/vms/lathe_boring/lathe_boring_04.html
[18:56:27] <jeeves_moss> well, since I can't get into the shop today, it'll have to be Monday.
[18:56:32] <jeeves_moss> thanks again for your help
[18:56:39] <archivist> for milling a bore on a manual machine, a lot would have used a boring head after some clearance
[18:57:31] <jeeves_moss> next quick question
[18:58:31] <anonimasu> jeeves_moss: usually you just bore it to the final depth(with great care) no special tricks to it
[18:58:35] <jeeves_moss> if I have a single peice of cold rolled steel that I've got 3 peices from on the band saw, can I clam all of them side by side in the vice on the mill and fly cut the tops of them flat, or will they chatter around when the cutter hits them? I'm just looking to make this as quick as possible
[18:59:01] <anonimasu> they'll most likely chatter
[18:59:24] <archivist> I bet they wont grip well
[18:59:40] <jeeves_moss> even though they'd be hammered down flat to the bottom of the vice? and they were all cut from the same bar stock?
[18:59:41] <anonimasu> one trick would be to put a shim between of something compilant...
[18:59:53] <anonimasu> yeah
[18:59:55] <jeeves_moss> they're 1.5" sq stock
[19:00:29] <jeeves_moss> damn it. so what should I use for shim material? as I said, I want to flat them off so one end is square, then I can flip 'em and mill them ALL the the same height
[19:01:02] <anonimasu> or you can do them all in a series operation, where you cut the top off and just swap part and hammer them down
[19:01:50] <jeeves_moss> my concern with that is that if I don't get them totally hammered down, they'll be different heights. I tried that with the first set and they're all out by 7-10 thou
[19:02:05] <anonimasu> a strip of thin aluminium sheet would work.. anything that gives you a few 0.01mm's..
[19:02:14] <archivist> 7-10 thou is operator error
[19:02:44] <anonimasu> yep
[19:02:53] <jeeves_moss> I think I have some thin strips off of some scrap. I'm just trying to reduce it as much as possible. (being a computer tech by trade makes you a "nit picker")
[19:03:12] <archivist> look at the crap you left in the bottom of the vice
[19:03:33] <jeeves_moss> I blew it out before I put it in, and wiped it and the chunks off with a rag first
[19:03:48] <archivist> and the burs on the bar?
[19:03:49] <anonimasu> what vise do you have?
[19:03:58] <jeeves_moss> I think I didn't have the vice tight enough when I hammered them down and they bounced.
[19:04:00] <Tom_itx> make sure the vice isn't lifting the side up
[19:04:04] <jeeves_moss> I can't remember the brand.
[19:04:11] <anonimasu> is it a machine vise/no lift one
[19:04:14] <anonimasu> or a drill/mill vise?
[19:04:21] <archivist> a bad vice lifts the work
[19:04:25] <Tom_itx> the moveable side will lift on some
[19:04:26] <Tecan> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OkWiweBs6w << EPIC Mini Guns...That Fire Real Bullets 
[19:04:28] <jeeves_moss> I know it has KKK on the back. And it's a mill vice.
[19:04:30] <Tom_itx> bad bad bad for machining
[19:04:36] <Tom_itx> kurt are best
[19:04:38] <Tom_itx> etc
[19:04:49] <jeeves_moss> Tecan, do you know if there are plans out there for that?
[19:05:11] <anonimasu> I have a vertex one from taiwan it works decent
[19:05:16] <Tecan> i wouldnt know how to make the bullets
[19:05:17] <jeeves_moss> we wrote "My vice is that I'm racist" on the back of it.
[19:05:21] <Tecan> no sorry
[19:05:43] <jeeves_moss> anonimasu, and it's heavy as f**k.
[19:05:49] <anonimasu> you can put a indicstor on top of the vise and see how the movable jaw go when you tighten it
[19:05:50] <Tom_itx> as it should be
[19:05:52] <Tecan> i immagine it would be the real parts just scaled down and less of them ?
[19:06:38] <jeeves_moss> anonimasu, the tool and die maker at the shop hasent complained about it yet.

[19:07:20] <anonimasu> that dosent say anything.. experienced machinists usually have a way to make things work out good :)
[19:08:05] <jeeves_moss> well, tomorrow's job is to get those hot caps milled, bored out, and drilled. then to get the cold ends drilled and dressed to the proper height. that should take the better part of a day
[19:08:26] <anonimasu> I'd change with you I dont want to make shafts :D
[19:09:40] <jeeves_moss> anonimasu, actually........ That's also on my list tomorrow. I have to figure out the tempermental CNC lathe. No one has been able to get it to work. The owner had purchased it knowing it had "problems". So far, I've got mad enough that I ripped out the controller and spent a few weeks fixing cold solder joints and rewiring it since the wire was frayed.
[19:09:54] <anonimasu> what controller was it?
[19:10:28] <jeeves_moss> there isn't any markings on the covers on the boards, and the control panel says Func.
[19:10:35] <anonimasu> fanuc?
[19:11:12] <jeeves_moss> yea. something like that
[19:11:26] <jeeves_moss> I think what happened was someone tried to "fix" it before and mangled it
[19:11:30] <anonimasu> it's weird for the old ones to break..
[19:12:39] <jeeves_moss> as I said. it looks like someone was in there with sidecutters. I don't think the thing actually "broke" per se, but it was more like it suffred the ham fisted attempts of someone
[19:13:27] <jeeves_moss> I kind of feel sorry for it. But, now that we have the proper software for it, the owner is tinkering.
[19:13:50] <anonimasu> got a parameter backup?
[19:14:02] <jeeves_moss> I'm not sure what that means
[19:14:21] <anonimasu> there's parameters for thoose lathes, some which cant be backed up by data transfer
[19:14:30] <anonimasu> and if you dont have them you are in for alot of pain
[19:15:22] <anonimasu> (if you ever lose them)
[19:15:28] <jeeves_moss> oh god. I have a feeling that this is going to be a big broken mess!
[19:15:31] <anonimasu> like backup battery failing.
[19:15:43] <anonimasu> (they have to be replaced with power on)
[19:16:01] <anonimasu> good machinebuilders store them tho.
[19:16:10] <jeeves_moss> oh shit. yea, that's going to be written on the inside of the controller cover.
[19:16:29] <anonimasu> I spent like 3 months or tinkering with my lathe to cut a part on it
[19:16:56] <anonimasu> simply to get the parameters read out from paper tapes and getting all options and all pmc(stuff you cant backup) back, from a similiar lathe
[19:17:38] <jeeves_moss> is it docummented somewhere on-line if it gets lost?
[19:17:41] <anonimasu> no
[19:18:01] <anonimasu> best luck is to look for some shop with the same machine close in serial number
[19:18:18] <anonimasu> if it happens and contact the machine builder
[19:18:49] <jeeves_moss> ok. good to know. I'll let him know when I go in tomorrow before he starts messing too much
[19:18:55] <anonimasu> a fanuc tech can fix it too(comissioning everything again) and reading the plc to see what timers/counters/shit
[19:19:19] <anonimasu> atleast you should write the pmc parameters down and try to see if you have a copy of the other parameters(or the pmc data too)
[19:19:24] <anonimasu> before you disconnect it and start messing
[19:19:45] <anonimasu> fanuc has free phone support atleast over here
[19:20:04] <anonimasu> but they dont know much of ancient controllers
[19:20:43] <anonimasu> if you have a parameter backup and backup of the pmc stuff(the plc data) you are pretty safe
[19:20:47] <jeeves_moss> ok, thanks for the help. hopefully tomorrow I can get this engine parts done tomorrow. then I can go back into my little "hole" I have in the back corner of the shop to play with the lathe. That's about the only thing I'm good at.
[19:21:01] <anonimasu> my lathe arrived with the control stuck, so i had to nuke all settings to get it running
[19:21:53] <jeeves_moss> that would really suck. (not that I've ever had to do it, but I know computers, and how much I hate them after 17 years)
[19:22:21] <anonimasu> lathes are temperamental at best and so is computers.. now imagine :D
[19:23:21] <jeeves_moss> lol. I've got a network attached storage server with 12Tb of space on it that is currently rebuilding the array after a failed disk. just under 36 hours now and still chewing

[20:50:20] <mrsun> about the bearing
[20:50:30] <mrsun> its a needle bearing combined with a angular contact bearing
[20:50:58] <mrsun> so it would be able to handle great loads in what is it called .. when pushed to the side like a spindle needs
[20:51:10] <mrsun> and still being held good top to bottom

[20:52:02] <anonimasu> how small spindle are you building?
[20:52:15] <mrsun> anonimasu, was a thought only for both lathe spindles and milling spindles =)
[20:52:47] <anonimasu> they are usually angular contact ones for that

[20:53:56] <anonimasu> they handle more load and you dont hae the same tolerance requirements for a shaft to fit them
[20:54:42] <anonimasu> im looking at making a spindle someday soon, but I'll ship the shaft to the hardener when I ship stuff from work, then turn the od and send it off to grind the id
[20:55:34] <anonimasu> mrsun: are you going to grind the shaft for thoose bearings?
[20:55:51] <mrsun> anonimasu, this was just a thought to about if it would be a good bearing to use
[20:55:56] <mrsun> im not making a spindle atm =)
[20:56:20] <anonimasu> it would, no doubt but the shaft requirements for thoose kind of bearings are not quite that simple to get at home
[20:56:50] <mrsun> what would be required of the shaft? :)
[20:57:16] <anonimasu> ah, i didnt see that they are with centers :D
[20:57:27] <mrsun> :P
[20:57:46] <anonimasu> tho, i'd go with angular any day, it's how every spindle pretty much is built nowdays
[20:57:56] <mrsun> anonimasu, but they are angular!
[20:57:59] <mrsun> and roller
[20:58:00] <mrsun> :P
[20:58:02] <mrsun> combined!
[20:58:06] <anonimasu> angular roller bearings
[20:58:07] <mrsun> wtfpwn bearings
[20:58:17] <mrsun> anonimasu, they are angular roller bearings
[20:58:20] <mrsun> .. :P
[20:58:23] <anonimasu> haha
[20:58:27] <mrsun> look at the drawing!
[20:58:46] <anonimasu> plus, I'd think you need a pretty close tolerance to not get thermal buildup in them
[20:59:02] <anonimasu> (for the shaft) if you want it dead concentric
[20:59:25] <anonimasu> they dont seem that cheap compared to angular contact(ROLLER) bearings either
[20:59:34] <anonimasu> atleast not for the bigger sizes
[20:59:46] <mrsun> but using those would be like using angular contact bearings, only you get a much stronger radial strenght as they are combines with the straight roller bearing

[21:09:51] <anonimasu> I want to build a small 40k rpm spindle :D
[21:12:48] <mrsun> anonimasu, do it with the angle grinder ;)
[21:13:23] <anonimasu> no problem..
[21:13:31] <anonimasu> but I cant measure it.
[21:15:52] <anonimasu> err, correction nobody around this part of the world can probably.

[21:48:59] <mercuryrising> when i have paused linuxcnc, it seems like it doesn't factor the pause into the piece - my prints become misaligned when I pause (although, depending on the timing, it can work better or worse)
[21:49:21] <mercuryrising> should it be working correctly, or is the pause like an Estop (when you press it, it's likely done)

[22:06:33] <ReadError> when i pause and continue it works
[22:06:43] <mercuryrising> it works - but it is offset from where it should be
[22:06:54] <mercuryrising> after the pause point, all my layers are shifted
[22:07:06] <ReadError> backlash ?
[22:07:19] <ReadError> you using the pause button in linuxcnc?
[22:07:25] <mercuryrising> im not sure, it only happens that severely when i pause

[22:12:23] <mercuryrising> and it seems like it may be a result of what the print head is doing when I pause, as sometimes I can pause and it's completely fine, but other times it is shifted significantly
[22:12:47] <mercuryrising> it seems like when it's traveling faster, there is more of a shift

[22:15:08] <pcw_home> AFAIK, pause should not hurt the path, but your extruder needs to do the right thing (backup)?

[22:17:10] <mercuryrising> I don't really think it would be a nozzle issue, as my X/Y/Z are what is incorrect (they are commanding the extruder to 'incorrect' positions)

[22:20:22] <L84Supper> open loop steppers + who knows what, when you hit pause. Sounds like lots of slop in the mechanics, unless that stepper driver doesn't actually stop the motors.

[22:24:27] <mercuryrising> no, im hitting the pause button - the motors are still powered

[22:28:11] <mercuryrising> i can see slop being the answer, instead of gradually slowing down from a fast speed, it quickly slows down
[22:28:32] <mercuryrising> is there any way to tune the pause parameters, or run some gcode or a script when I hit pause?
[22:29:41] <L84Supper> is there less play when moving at lower speeds and more play when moving at higher speeds?
[22:30:08] <mercuryrising> yes - when it's traveling faster and i pause it shifts more

[22:36:08] <L84Supper> mercuryrising: most repraps are rickety toys that are full of play. It sounds like you'll have to figure out where there play is in your setup and adjust or replace the sloppy parts
[22:37:40] <mercuryrising> mine's probably just as rickety, but it's not a reprap :P http://imgur.com/sxbNz
[22:39:07] <L84Supper> the dual drawer slides in the z-axis might be one area that has lots of play in the x and y
[22:39:55] <Jymmm> held together with duct tape and wondering way pause is misaligned?
[22:40:04] <L84Supper> for $100 more on ebay you could make that setup rock solid
[22:40:08] <Jymmm> s/way/why/
[22:40:37] <mercuryrising> ducttape is to hold the aluminum foil to shield the wires
[22:41:08] <mercuryrising> what would you change first L84Supper?
[22:42:57] <L84Supper> I'd need more pics. Under the table/stage as well. Assuming the lowest axis is X, What are you using for the Y-axis positioning?

[22:47:52] <L84Supper> I have an article from a 1964 Scientific American that begs to differ
[22:47:58] <mercuryrising> i (stupidly) used unshielded wires, and the motor's current was interfering with the extruder motor (it would just click and clack around), it was supposed to be a temporary solution, but it's working pretty damn well at the moment (well enough where other things can change before I fix it, it's ugly, but it works)
