[00:00:19] <ReadError> also the direction you cut makes a big difference on some materials
[00:00:46] <AR_> yeah
[00:01:06] <AR_> this was just a zigzag facing path and contour around the 'posts'
[00:01:46] <AR_> the flat face actually looks pretty good in person
[00:02:00] <AR_> but this is a very weird material

[08:23:26] <mrsun_> hmm does one dare to have a heavy chuck on a lathe that uses threads for chuck holding? :)
[08:23:35] <mrsun_> im thinking reverse when threadings sometimes :P
[08:23:58] <toastyde1th> you don't
[08:24:15] <mrsun_> dont ?
[08:24:17] <mrsun_> dont what ?
[08:24:20] <toastyde1th> if you're using an L series chuck taper, you reverse thread very carefully.
[08:24:36] <toastyde1th> because that shit can and will come off if you really go for it.
[08:24:58] <mrsun_> no not threading in reverse, but as metric threads are almost impossible to find a threading dial for i have to reverse the direction and never let the leadscrew disengage
[08:25:08] <toastyde1th> oh, that's much easier
[08:25:09] <mrsun_> so no cutting in reverse
[08:25:13] <toastyde1th> cut the threads slowly.
[08:25:20] <toastyde1th> stop the chuck
[08:25:22] <toastyde1th> reverse the lathe
[08:25:23] <mrsun_> but im afraid it will jerk the chuck lose =)
[08:25:38] <toastyde1th> ...what?
[08:25:43] <mrsun_> when you reverse
[08:25:49] <toastyde1th> stop the lathe, then reverse it
[08:25:50] <mrsun_> if the chuck is a threaded type
[08:25:56] <mrsun_> it got inertia
[08:26:00] <mrsun_> =)
[08:26:04] <toastyde1th> it has more than enough holding force to just stop the chuck
[08:26:09] <toastyde1th> don't be ridiculous
[08:26:22] <toastyde1th> most old lathes were L-nose spindles
[08:26:27] <toastyde1th> and there WERE no threading dials
[08:26:35] <mrsun_> L nose ?
[08:26:37] <toastyde1th> all threading was done without disengaging the leadscrew
[08:26:45] <toastyde1th> the most prolific threaded taper
[08:26:55] <toastyde1th> L-00, L-0, L-1, etc
[08:27:06] <toastyde1th> just like D1, D2, and A1, A2 for camlocks
[08:27:25] <toastyde1th> although A is bolted on, not cammed
[08:27:26] <mrsun_> looks like a straight thread to me
[08:28:08] <toastyde1th> if you're afraid of what people did for 3 centuries, then don't do it?
[08:28:18] <mrsun_> im just asking
[08:28:28] <toastyde1th> thread on the slowest speed
[08:28:39] <toastyde1th> and have enough runoff for the chuck to stop
[08:29:07] <Jymmm> Not take baths for 3C? No soap for 3C? Public executions for 3C? Apply Leeches for 3C ?
[08:29:25] <toastyde1th> hahaha
[08:39:51] <Jymmm> !!! NO TOILET PAPER FOR THREE CENTURIES !!!
[08:45:56] <Jymmm> Well, at least none that will leaf a rash =)

[13:40:49] <mrsun_> gaah, burs in the morse taper of the spindle .. any tip on removing them without damaging the rest of the bore? :)
[13:41:24] <mrsun_> and seem the spindle goes excentric about 0.05mm i wonder what is the cause of that :/
[13:41:33] <mrsun_> (on the surfaces the chuck registers to)
[13:44:38] <mrsun_> 0.015 is allowed so something is clearly wrong
[13:47:34] <archivist> spindle bent, not measuring in a good area, just worn, are the spindle bearings adjusted
[13:50:13] <mrsun_> bearings are adjusted to be tight but not binding, havent checked them further then that and i was also thinking of the bent spindle as the lathe has been quite abused before
[13:50:22] <mrsun_> ran for a long time without lubrication etc etc
[13:51:47] <archivist> also wear can be eccentric if the chuck was out of balance
[13:52:33] <mrsun_> the rear bearing ?
[13:52:41] <mrsun_> or the whole spindle? :)
[13:53:23] -!- p0g0 [p0g0!~pogo@unaffiliated/p0g0] has joined #linuxcnc
[13:53:26] <archivist> one at the chuck end is probably most worn of the two
[13:58:11] <mrsun_> as im going to repair the gears on the spindle anyhow i will strip it all and see if the excentricity is hihger at some point between the bearings or something or something 0.05mm is a tad bit to much imo =)
[13:58:36] -!- i_tarzan has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
[14:00:22] <andypugh> mrsun_: _what_ is eccentric? A lathe should still make round things even with a bent spindle.
[14:01:07] <mrsun_> andypugh, yes but when rechucking anything and your off 0.05mm at a absolute minimum its kinda annoying, and even if i have a deadcenter in the spindle (yes there is a burr in the spindle also) i get 0.05 - 0.1mm runout
[14:01:11] <mrsun_> on the deadcenter

[14:03:56] <andypugh> Do you expect to do much work between centres?
[14:04:21] <archivist> file/grind/wet&dry off all burrs before condemning the spindle
[14:04:26] <mrsun_> well i dont know =) still want the taper to be in condition =)
[14:04:45] <mrsun_> archivist, yes i know =) but its far in =)
[14:04:52] <mrsun_> and hard to get to =)
[14:04:56] <archivist> you can get a morse taper reamer to clean the bore
[14:05:09] <andypugh> Any job what needs re-chucking should be done in a 4-jaw, so you won't notice the problem.
[14:05:44] <archivist> assuming the 4 jaw axis is straight :)
[14:06:21] <mrsun_> andypugh, yes but i dont even get a straight surface on the front side of the chucks/jaws etc
[14:06:35] <mrsun_> everything is 0.05mm off =)
[14:06:38] <mrsun_> front side and side
[14:07:15] <andypugh> That does sounds like a bent spindle. What is the chuck mounting?
[14:07:18] -!- sumpfralle1 [sumpfralle1!~lars@c.mail.systemausfall.org] has joined #linuxcnc
[14:07:29] <mrsun_> what it is ?
[14:07:35] <mrsun_> threaded nose with register surfaces
[14:07:45] <archivist> to fix chucks re machine back plate in situ
[14:07:55] <andypugh> I was about to suggest that
[14:07:58] <mrsun_> gonna check them more, the flat surface i found that was straight, but the other surface was 0.05mm off
[14:08:09] <mrsun_> the veritcal surface was straight
[14:08:13] <mrsun_> the horisontal was off
[14:08:36] <mrsun_> ahh remove the chuck and mount just the flange and remachine it? :)
[14:08:38] <andypugh> any particular back-plate will screw on to the same position, so skimming true in-situ should sort the chucj out.
[14:08:39] <archivist> I re did backplate last year on mine
[14:09:13] <mrsun_> it was very rough on the backside that mounts against the spindle also .. the backplate
[14:09:28] <mrsun_> not a machined surface as one would think it should be
[14:09:58] -!- sumpfralle has quit [Read error: Operation timed out]
[14:10:03] <andypugh> Make sure all the mating surfaces are clean and true though, or you will need to keep a special bit of swarf to make sure that it runs true every time :-)
[14:10:24] <mrsun_> :P
[14:10:43] <mrsun_> it is clean but like i said, i would not call it a machined surface
[14:10:56] <mrsun_> looks quite rough on the backside
[14:11:32] <andypugh> You may be able to mount the backplate the wrong way round to clean that face up. But don't let it run to the end of the thread, put a nice packer in like an old bearing race.
[14:11:45] <mrsun_> oh well, time to go do something usefull =) thanks for the tips =)
[14:11:49] <mrsun_> ahh smart!
[14:12:10] <mrsun_> so got some work to do tonight then :P

[14:43:40] <Jymmm> wood fire?! That's a waste of natural resources. Now, a good old fashion used tire fire, that's a great way to conserve our natural resources and keep them out of the landfills!

[15:09:58] <andypugh> Ah, so you have had something working, but the current HAL file is causing a problem?
[15:11:06] <dzon> now i can move the motor (by the way, thynk you for your help).
[15:11:48] <dzon> Hal file is fine, i can move the motor and everything. But now i would like to "wire" it with axis gui
[15:13:21] * JT-Shop waves at andypugh
[15:13:31] <dzon> I just comment out my simple pyvcp gui. And try to use it with pluto-servo example...yust to tune the PID parameters
[15:13:50] <andypugh> dzon: I wonder if EMCMOT is failing to load?
[15:15:42] <andypugh> This is likely to be a bit painful, but if you put "show funct" after each loadrt line in the HAL, then you can see how far it is getting.
[15:16:23] <dzon> i did not wire any axis.0.motor-pos-cmd etc... can this be a problem?
[15:16:44] <andypugh> No, that wouldn't matter.
[15:17:17] <andypugh> can you zip up the config directory and put the file somewhere?

[15:36:52] <andypugh> Thanks Tom
[15:37:18] <Tom_itx> watch the rapids carefully, i'm not sure i know how they are configured on my lathe package just yet
[15:37:51] <Tom_itx> i inserted a safe start point at the beginning and told it to retract 20mm
[15:38:53] <Tom_itx> i can make changes as necesary
[15:43:40] <andypugh> That's rather odd-looking lathe code.
[15:43:52] <andypugh> (Or, rather, rather an odd lathe tool-path)
[15:48:08] <andypugh> Tom_itx: There are a few rapids straight through the material: http://imagebin.org/247963 but I think I should be able to fix those.
[15:55:27] <Tom_itx> ok so my preview was right...
[15:55:37] <Tom_itx> that will help in the future
[15:56:21] <Tom_itx> andypugh, i also ran a zigzag cut pattern if you want that
[15:56:42] <andypugh> No, you have spent more than enough time on me :-)
[15:57:04] <Tom_itx> it's all done
[15:57:08] <Tom_itx> just need to post it
[15:57:30] <andypugh> What do you mean by zig-zag?
[15:57:31] <Tom_itx> wasn't that much work anyway
[15:57:39] <Tom_itx> cut to center and back out
[15:57:43] <Tom_itx> stepping over
[15:58:05] <Tom_itx> i'll post it and you can look
[15:58:09] <andypugh> I don't think lathes normally work that way, to be honest.
[15:58:17] <Tom_itx> me either
[15:59:00] <andypugh> I am more used to seeing lots of straight conventional turning cuts that stop a shade short of the profile, then a final finishing cut, outside to in.
[15:59:08] <Tom_itx> check the spindle speed and feed also for your machine
[15:59:25] <Tom_itx> these will extend past the profile slightly
[15:59:37] <Tom_itx> i don't like code that stops short

[19:12:04] <andypugh> Why not?
[19:12:14] <mrsun_> andypugh, cause it will be to small for the chuck afterwards :P
[19:12:43] <archivist> no need to machine the register on the spindle
[19:12:53] <mrsun_> no
[19:12:57] <mrsun_> on the backplate for the chuck
[19:12:59] <andypugh> mrsun_: You don't need _much_ register. So face off enough to make a new register.
[19:13:37] <mrsun_> andypugh, then the holes for the bolts will be without a botom :P

[23:06:08] <FinboySlick> I'm assuming that one has the 3D data all sliced up. How do you realistically get a home made laser setup to scan a whole slice accurately and with good resolution? Could one really ghetto a dual spinning mirror setup?

[23:15:35] <FinboySlick> pcw_home: The Y part would be relatively slow though, no? If the point of using a laser (vs DLP) is resolution, this would cripple print speed. Or is that rendered moot by the typical epoxy curing time?
[23:16:51] <pcw_home> Its at least 1-2 KHz
[23:17:19] <FinboySlick> You mean the X scan rate?
