[00:00:07] <PetefromTn> gammax: I have been using Sheetcam for some time now and I will be using Either bobcam or CamBam for 3d stuff depending on what I like better.....
[00:00:09] <Tom_itx> it's a commercial product
[00:00:19] <andypugh> I did a research project on electon-beam welding a while a ago. It's a brilliant process. Single-pass welds 1m thick with no filller.
[00:00:40] <PetefromTn> For Cad I use Draftsight
[00:01:17] <Tom_itx> i hear sheetcam is good for 2.5d stuff
[00:01:27] <UncleG> its sounds to me like they made a laser printer with weld instead of toner
[00:01:33] <UncleG> is that correct andy?
[00:01:46] <PetefromTn> Yes I really like it and have been able to make all sorts of stuff fairly easily and it is pretty inexpensive.
[00:01:55] -!- mhaberler has quit [Quit: mhaberler]
[00:02:12] <andypugh> Yeah, I like SheetCAM if what you have is a DXF (and if you set up you layers as Z-heights in the CAD, it works well)
[00:02:36] <L84Supper> UncleG: it's similar to a laser printer, only without the electrostatic drum
[00:02:48] <PetefromTn> Yes that is precisely how I use it. Makes it rather simple to do things and it does a decent job of tapping too...
[00:04:12] <andypugh> Did you get the "1m thick" part? I really do mean three of your yankee feet.
[00:04:41] * Tom_itx looks at his feet
[00:05:18] <andypugh> (not relevant to SLS, but an indication of how deep an electron beam can go)

[00:05:34] <L84Supper> Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) Process
[00:06:17] <andypugh> Why no inert atmoshpere/vacuum?
[00:06:29] <L84Supper> depends on the metal
[00:07:01] <L84Supper> we even do copper without inert gas, just a secret sauce
[00:07:26] <andypugh> Lard?
[00:07:48] <L84Supper> low fat lard
[00:08:39] <andypugh> That would seem to leave 'vacuum"
[00:09:05] <L84Supper> no vacuum required
[00:09:09] <UncleG> its pretty common practice the high fat lard is actually really affordable to use a s a medium though
[00:09:11] <UncleG> see here

[00:09:24] <UncleG> http://myshapelipo.com/
[00:09:26] <UncleG> there it is
[00:10:10] <FinboySlick> L84Supper: Don't get me started on low-fat stuff.
[00:10:14] <FinboySlick> ;)
[00:10:51] <pfred1> andypugh 1m is more than 3 feet
[00:11:18] <andypugh> pfred1: Depends on who's feet
[00:11:22] <L84Supper> yankee feet of english feet?
[00:11:28] <L84Supper> of/or
[00:11:35] <pfred1> andypugh why the foot that is 12 inches long of course

[00:14:28] <L84Supper> http://www.imakr.com/ World's Largest 3D Printing Retail Store to open in London on April 30th, 2013
[00:15:07] <andypugh> Would that be the _only_ 3D printing retail store?
[00:15:36] <andypugh> I can't even tell if they sell printers, or prints.
[00:16:14] <L84Supper> http://3dprintingindustry.com/2013/04/11/a-new-dedicated-3d-printing-retail-store-opening-in-london-next-month/
[00:16:31] <L84Supper> The new iMakr store will stock a large range of personal 3D Printers from major American, European and Asian manufacturers
[00:17:43] <andypugh> I guess I really ought to have at least an GGG. Many of my friends have them.
[00:18:42] <andypugh> I am just rather more interested in making traditional parts.
[00:18:43] <UncleG> Oh does anyone know, is there a way I can "call" a home command within a program?
[00:18:55] <andypugh> In G-code?
[00:19:02] <UncleG> so make a cut, home, make another cut, home
[00:19:26] <UncleG> yeah that would get me a quick fix until I figure out this wrapped rotary issue.
[00:19:32] <andypugh> When you say "home" what do you want to happen?
[00:19:54] <andypugh> You may want G10.
[00:20:03] <UncleG> I want the axis to turn till my home switch is activated then once 0.000 run again
[00:20:27] <cradek> no, you can't search for a home switch by issuing gcode
[00:20:50] <andypugh> You could use a custom M-code (M100) to call a bash script to send a home request via halui.
[00:20:58] <cradek> no, you sure couldn't
[00:21:08] <andypugh> No?
[00:21:14] <cradek> you can't home while a program's running!
[00:21:19] <JT-Shop> a probe move
[00:21:23] <UncleG> thats a sad thing
[00:21:27] <JT-Shop> to find it
[00:21:35] <cradek> what's the actual problem you're trying to solve? this is all crazy talk
[00:21:35] <andypugh> Well, apart from it not working, you could :-)
[00:22:05] <UncleG> this driving all the way back to the beginning of the cam is doubling my cycle time
[00:22:15] <andypugh> cradek: Agreed, I have no idea what he is trying to solve here.
[00:22:31] <cradek> then use wrapped rotary, or g92 or g10
[00:22:35] <UncleG> I have a cam system and need to 0.000 after each rotation
[00:22:43] <cradek> or poke the home button before you restart the program
[00:22:47] <andypugh> G10 sounds right
[00:23:00] -!- gammax has quit [Ping timeout: 258 seconds]
[00:23:02] <cradek> why do you need that?
[00:23:05] <UncleG> I tried and I end up with it just reversing
[00:23:19] <UncleG> its a cam machine
[00:23:27] <UncleG> the cams are not meant to be reversed
[00:23:34] <andypugh> It sounds like he has a cam-driven linear axis.
[00:23:41] <cradek> I don't know what that is
[00:23:47] <UncleG> Ill link you
[00:24:16] <UncleG> https://www.youtube.com/user/HuntingtonScrew/videos
[00:24:33] <UncleG> in the video you will see me reversing all the way backwards through the cross slide tooling
[00:24:56] <UncleG> instead, I need to just keep going in the same direction.
[00:25:06] <cradek> which video?
[00:25:11] <UncleG> any
[00:25:18] <UncleG> the first is just a close up
[00:25:57] <cradek> can you describe what's going on here? I'm not getting what you're talking about
[00:26:20] <UncleG> ok cross slide.
[00:26:28] <UncleG> works on a CAM
[00:26:29] <cradek> I don't see anything that looks like a rotary axis
[00:26:53] <UncleG> err you need to see a cam machine Ill find you a drawing
[00:28:10] <UncleG> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Lead-sec.jpg
[00:28:37] <UncleG> imagine a motor attached to that cam shaft and the rise and fall of the cam produces a linear motion
[00:30:23] <Tom_itx> the old brittans i ran used cams for the crosslides
[00:30:57] <Tom_itx> tool slide too for that matter
[00:31:02] <Tom_itx> it was a drum cam though
[00:31:15] <UncleG> that is how my cross slides work, they use a roller and arm which follows a servo driven cam after the roller "falls" my tool is already out of the way and there is no need to revers the cam. yet I have no way to truly 0.000 the machine, it just backs up instead.
[00:31:24] <andypugh> I like the "Goth" coolant
[00:32:04] <cradek> ok, so you always want to move a certain rotary axis the same direction
[00:32:20] <cradek> wrapped rotary sounds good for this. you'd just always use the same sign
[00:32:20] <andypugh> I think you need to define the axes as rotary, but calibrate them in mm or inches, then set them to "wrapped"
[00:32:42] <UncleG> indeed. but then how do I get back to "0.000
[00:32:45] <cradek> you can only wrap A,B,C
[00:32:48] <UncleG> it just keeps adding up
[00:32:52] <cradek> g90 g0 a0
[00:32:58] <andypugh> cradek: That's a shame
[00:33:06] <UncleG> which after 1000 parts is quite painful
[00:33:10] <Tom_itx> what machine is that?
[00:33:22] <UncleG> index-werke
[00:33:26] <UncleG> b60
[00:33:42] <Tom_itx> all cam driven?
[00:34:33] <UncleG> yah
[00:34:36] <UncleG> front and rear
[00:34:48] <UncleG> all my actions are pneumatic though
[00:34:50] <Tom_itx> what about the tool slide?
[00:35:02] <UncleG> turret, bar feed, reversse, high/low
[00:35:04] <Tom_itx> the front drill slide
[00:35:17] <UncleG> the turret is on a servo as well
[00:35:30] <Tom_itx> reminds me sortof like the new brittans
[00:35:38] <Tom_itx> only they were pure mechanical
[00:35:45] <andypugh> OK chaps, need to sleep, work in the morning, you know.
[00:35:48] <UncleG> the rotation is pneumatically acted but mechanically driven via mechanical cam shaft in rear
[00:35:58] <UncleG> this one WAS purely mechanical
[00:36:02] -!- andypugh has quit [Quit: andypugh]
[00:36:04] <UncleG> till I got a hold of it :P
[00:36:19] <Tom_itx> the gridleys were 6 and 8 spindle
[00:36:27] <UncleG> I have two of those!
[00:36:30] <UncleG> Acmes
[00:36:33] <UncleG> 6 spindles
[00:36:40] <Tom_itx> yeah, i ran new brittan
[00:36:42] <UncleG> nice
[00:36:48] <UncleG> I have davenport too
[00:36:49] <Tom_itx> i think acme were older weren't they?
[00:37:00] <UncleG> yeah mine came over on the mayflower
[00:37:07] <Tom_itx> yeah the shop had a bunch of brown & sharp, davenport and newbrittans
[00:37:17] <Tom_itx> a room full of each
[00:37:20] <Tom_itx> 3 rooms
[00:37:31] <Tom_itx> probably 20 new brittans
[00:37:48] <UncleG> this is VERY similar to a brown and sharpe
[00:37:51] <Tom_itx> i ran 6 at a time
[00:37:55] <UncleG> yah
[00:37:57] <UncleG> crazy huh?>
[00:38:05] <Tom_itx> lots of bars per shift
[00:38:13] <UncleG> I just picked up and order for 1 millions pieces O.o
[00:38:22] <UncleG> million*
[00:38:34] <Tom_itx> that'll keep ya outta the bars for a while
[00:38:38] <UncleG> yeah
[00:38:52] <UncleG> luckily they are only 3/8
[00:39:02] <Tom_itx> these went up to 1.5" iirc
[00:39:09] <Tom_itx> maybe a bit larger
[00:39:21] <UncleG> probably switching to 20 foot bars
[00:39:30] <UncleG> 12 is just too short to reload that often
[00:39:35] <Tom_itx> yep
[00:39:51] <Tom_itx> some of mine would cycle thru every 20 min or so

[00:41:56] <L84Supper> http://phys.org/news/2013-04-velkess-flywheel-flexible-energy-storage.html
[00:42:28] <Tom_itx> that does look a bit like a B&S
[00:42:48] <Tom_itx> the davenports always ran the tiny parts
[00:43:02] <Tom_itx> B&S the midrange parts and the new brittans the big ones
[00:43:13] <Tom_itx> lots of tubing on the B&S
[00:49:15] -!- PetefromTn has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[00:49:27] <UncleG> So cradek just applying wrapped rotary and defining it as a A,B,or C, and then it would be degrees now and not inches?
[00:50:00] <UncleG> or can inches be defined on a scale equivilent to the height of my cam (5 inches)

[01:00:28] <gammax> anyone use solidworks/
[01:00:36] <Tom_itx> JT-Shop does
[01:01:00] <gammax> im debating on using that or not...
[01:01:24] <Connor> skunkworks: Pretty cool being able to work on a full sized VMC conversion..
[01:01:45] <UncleG> got photos/
[01:01:46] <UncleG> ?
[01:01:54] <Tom_itx> that would be a treat
[01:02:03] <Tom_itx> especially if it were mine
[01:02:08] <skunkworks> Connor: :) on the lookout for a conversion project now?
[01:02:23] <Connor> skunkworks: No place to put one. :(
[01:02:32] <Connor> I'll have to make do with my G0704.
[01:02:36] <UncleG> you can come convert my hardinge dsm-a =D
[01:02:41] <Connor> but, I know where one is If I need help. :)
[01:02:55] <gammax> Connor, I almost bought one of them... got a crazy good deal on a rf45 though!
[01:03:00] <UncleG> replacing the hydraulic turret with a gantry style servo
[01:03:31] <Connor> RF45 good machine.. beefer.. Again.. Size and money dictated my choice.
[01:03:44] <gammax> no problem with that!
[01:03:59] <gammax> im in the midst of adding linuxcnc to it right now.
[01:04:01] <L84Supper> we use solidworks
[01:04:01] <pfred1> Rong Fu!
[01:04:27] <gammax> L84Supper, how do you like it and what kind of training would you recomend on it?
[01:05:08] <Connor> PetefromTn: You do need to take some pictures and video of it now that we have all the axis working, spindle and power draw bar...
[01:05:15] <L84Supper> gammax: it's ok, it's not as powerful as NX, but it's popular and easy enough to use
[01:05:31] <gammax> L84Supper, nx?
[01:05:45] <L84Supper> gammax: used to be called unigraphics
[01:06:02] <L84Supper> http://www.plm.automation.siemens.com/en_us/products/nx/
[01:06:26] <L84Supper> but the full blown version is $35K
[01:06:33] <gammax> ouch lol
[01:06:34] <L84Supper> SW is what $3K
[01:06:41] <gammax> yeah lol
[01:07:43] <L84Supper> NX just has more stuff and you can design things faster
[01:07:44] <pfred1> someone ought to do a kickstarter for some native Linux CAD software
[01:08:08] <gammax> agreed lol
[01:08:24] <pfred1> because I've tried what is out there and it is pretty hurting
[01:08:29] <L84Supper> openscad, freecad?
[01:09:29] -!- skunkworks has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[01:09:46] <L84Supper> the pro tools just automate lots of things, plus simulation and CAM
[01:09:48] <pfred1> openscad I think is more of a scripting application
[01:10:24] <gammax> L84Supper, which cam you going with ?
[01:10:32] <pfred1> last i looked at freecad the lead dev had no interest in supporting imperial measurements
[01:10:47] <pfred1> they were actually pretty hostile against the idea in fact
[01:10:55] <L84Supper> gammax: we are looking into expanding PyCAM

[01:11:48] <L84Supper> gammax: never used it, NX CAM or MasterCAM mostly
[01:12:14] <gammax> L84Supper, if your using nx then where do you work? lol I would imagine it to cost a boat load aswell...
[01:12:35] <PetefromTn> Wish I could afford mastercam because it seems like all the shops locally use it. If I had access to it to play with I would learn it quick I am sure and use it on my VMC to test the code.
[01:12:49] <L84Supper> gammax: most of the oem's we work with only use NX
[01:13:25] <pfred1> 35K for software they should ship it on a PC
[01:13:26] <PetefromTn> gammax: I built my first machine out of a Lathemaster RF45 and it was a very nice machine. Did all sorts of cool stuff with it before I sold it to finance this Cincinatti Arrow 500 project....

[01:15:54] <PetefromTn> We talking accessories or motors/hardware
[01:15:56] <gammax> steppers? what size and brand... etc. Would be much appreciated

[01:16:14] <PetefromTn> No steppers, went with DC servos and Gecko Servo drives.
[01:16:20] <Valen> we are using 500W scooter motors on ours
[01:16:52] <PetefromTn> On your what?
[01:18:08] <PetefromTn> gammax: You can read all about my RF45 build on the CNCzone in my thread called "Finally Getting started". It spans some considerable time and lots of posts but you can see my ballscrew conversion, CNC conversion and my Belt driven spindle upgrades...
[01:18:13] <gammax> i currently have 550w steppers for x and y and a 1200 for the z
[01:18:32] <PetefromTn> That should work fine...
[01:19:23] <PetefromTn> Do yourself a favor and fabricate some kind of counterweight for the millhead or do like I did and install some industrial Gas shocks. My machine really came into it's own when I did that and it also made it easier to lift that heavy head LOL
[01:19:42] <PetefromTn> Should have done that way back in the beginning....
[01:20:33] <Connor> PetefromTn: You do anything on the machine today?
[01:20:46] <Valen> we have a HM45
[01:21:09] <PetefromTn> Connor: Not a lot spent the day with the kids and got my yard mowed and trimmed it was getting BAD!
[01:21:10] <Valen> we replaced the head totally with an epoxy granite thing
[01:21:29] <PetefromTn> Oh so you are the guy with that EG millhead RF45....
[01:21:32] <Connor> Figured as much.. we kicked a$$ yesterday.. I slept half the day away.. :)
[01:21:37] <gammax> Valen, can you explain anymore on that?
[01:21:45] <Valen> wait a sec I'll find it
[01:21:57] <Valen> http://www.cnczone.com/forums/general_metal_working_machines/118358-phenolic_basalt_head_our_hm45.html
[01:22:02] <gammax> thanks!
[01:22:07] <PetefromTn> Interesting setup with the EG and it looks like you did a decent job. As I recall you did a higher speed spindle too..
[01:22:22] <Valen> its mainly about the head

[01:22:56] <PetefromTn> Connor: LOL not surprised I slept in quite a bit. Got a lot done and I really appreciated all of your help and ideas...
[01:23:26] <Connor> Okay.. Why make a new head and use Epoxy Granite ?
[01:23:30] <gammax> Valen, did you guys make that head?!
[01:23:42] <Valen> yes
[01:23:58] <Valen> because the old one was craptacular Connor ;->
[01:24:51] <gammax> that is very interesting!
[01:25:08] <Valen> new one goes to 24k rpm
[01:25:28] <PetefromTn> Honestly the head on mine was more like the IH one and was not too bad really. The original gear head setup kinda sucked with slowish speeds and noisy gears but it worked fine once I gutted it and installed the belt drive. Should have done a timing belt drive at the top of the millhead the same way...
[01:25:59] <PetefromTn> Why do you need 24k? Do you just make aluminum parts or PCB's?
[01:26:07] <Valen> we make everything lol
[01:26:17] <Valen> we do make PCB's and a fair bit of Al
[01:26:21] <PetefromTn> Valen, where are you located?
[01:26:22] <Valen> but also stainless steel
[01:26:26] <Valen> sydney australia
[01:26:36] <gammax> yeah im gettin a belt drive setup next week...
[01:27:03] <PetefromTn> Most of the really high speed spindles suck at low speed, surprised to hear you cut stainless with the same spindle...
[01:27:21] <Valen> water cooled, pump the amps in and don't take a heavy cut ;->
[01:27:39] <PetefromTn> Belt drive is the way to go on the RF45 believe me.... Unless you completely remake the millhead like our friend Valen here....
[01:28:13] <PetefromTn> I am sure but still most folks cut stainless at much lower RPM... Cutting it with fast speed and high feed is kinda nutz.....
[01:28:30] <Valen> the other thing is to use a smaller tool
[01:28:36] <Valen> so the RPM can stay high
[01:28:39] <Valen> well highish
[01:28:46] <gammax> i picked up a balder washdown 3hp 3450 for 125.
[01:28:49] <PetefromTn> what's highish?
[01:29:01] <Valen> 6K 8K something like that
[01:29:08] <gammax> high of 9k rpm
[01:29:23] <PetefromTn> I used a 3hp 1725 and a belt ratio to bring me around 7k....
[01:29:26] <gammax> but ill only go to about 7500 to keep everything good.
[01:30:23] <PetefromTn> Believe me 7k is PLENTLY.... Do yourself a favor and use a timing belt setup even if you have to have it machined. Lots of guys make their own ribbed belt and they just look too small to me to bring any real torque into the equation.
[01:30:49] <PetefromTn> Also try to make a two speed belt drive with a real low speed for tapping and whatnot...
[01:31:15] <gammax> got a guy makin me one for 500, real nice setup
[01:31:53] <gammax> 2 speed belt setup and I bought a omron photomicrosensor
[01:32:01] <gammax> for timing.
[01:32:23] <PetefromTn> Honestly now that I have been working on a VMC here and see how it is built and even run one for awhile I cannot imagine building a machine from a manual machine anymore... it was a LOT OF WORK...
[01:32:44] <PetefromTn> Just make sure it is a timing belt setup anything else is just a compromise....
[01:36:24] <gammax> i want to mount the photomicrosensor to the inside of the head and have it right against the spindle shaft.
[01:37:26] <PetefromTn> Inside the spindle body?
[01:37:59] <gammax> i may be using wrong term...

[03:00:41] <nazarm> Mine are run in the closed state, and go open on contact. But I'm using a mesa card
[03:01:58] <Valen> closed is probably better, in a wiring fail will be detected

[03:04:48] <Valen> we are making a new one
[03:04:59] <PetefromTn> I put a big corn cob rougher in the spindle and clamped a piece of aluminum down to the table top and just did some whittling to make me giggle. Still a lot of fine tuning to do before it is ready for prime time and the damn pneumatic oiler out back on the rear of the column is leaking air pretty badly so I will need to address this soon as I hate hearing the compressor running alll the time.

[03:13:16] <gammax> which I didnt take apart!
[03:16:47] <PetefromTn> A hardinge lathe is a sweet machine. I had one for awhile but it was not the kind of lathe I really need so I sold it. Would love to find a CNHC or something like an older Cincinatti slant bed to convert next.
[03:18:18] <gammax> this one had a gang tool style holder on it. with anilam crusader...
[03:18:24] <gammax> im hoping the crusader 2 works...
[03:18:54] <PetefromTn> Love gang tooling....
[03:20:01] <gammax> im in the process of trying to learn solidworks so my first try is creating a gang tool holder like http://www.ebay.com/itm/8-Position-Gang-Tool-Bar-OmniTurn-805-Tool-Holder-/290895634805?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item43babb2175

[03:30:43] <PetefromTn> Gammax, You know once you get it working making a gang tooling fixture like that will be a piece of cake, just bolt it on and then use the machine to drill and bore the holes for the tools exactly on center...
[03:31:27] <gammax> PetefromTn, yeah im figuring it is a great thing to learn from...
[03:32:01] <PetefromTn> Yeah I have done that to make homebuilt boring toolholders and drill holders for my manual lathe many times.
[03:32:23] <PetefromTn> My Cincinatti seemed to like cutting metal again tonight LOL....
[03:32:41] <nazarm> yeah we just bored a new plate on the lathe

[03:35:05] <Connor> PetefromTn: Interesting on that video of the Compound bow.. They have to move the bow out of the way in some cases to do the tool change..
[03:35:29] <PetefromTn> Yeah man and that is a BIG mill....
[03:35:35] <nazarm> yeah.. that is actually another guy in the shop who took the photos. I'm not very good on the flickr front.

[03:37:32] <PetefromTn> Connor: Actually it did fine but I still have the Y axis way cover strapped up so I could not get the millhead down enough to reach the metal without using an extended toolholder. It did good. I think my spindle belts are needing replacement because they kinda vibrate at certain frequencies and speeds
[03:37:40] <PetefromTn> Wife's in bed LOL...
[03:38:07] <nazarm> what kind of mill?
[03:38:07] <Connor> Oh. So, she doesn't know yet.
[03:38:07] <PetefromTn> Gonna be really sweet to be able to use this machine to make stuff. I MISS having a mill to cut parts with and this thing is a beast.

[03:39:07] <Connor> I think in a few more weeks you'll be able to do that.
[03:39:28] <nazarm> gammax: which mill? our bridgeport?
[03:39:32] <PetefromTn> The bow video is really interesting, would LOVE to machine my own riser for a compound on the Cinci somehow. probably have to make fixtures to drill the end holes at that angle tho there is not enough travel in the machine to make it work. UNLESS...
[03:39:39] <gammax> nazarm, sorry i meant lathe!
[03:39:59] <Connor> I still have allot to learn about machining stuff.. I.E. proper ways to hold stuff.. proper bits and speeds.. and depth of cuts.. etc etc..
[03:40:01] <PetefromTn> unless I can fixture the riser hanging off the side of the table somehow... It will probably fit then..
[03:40:04] <nazarm> gammax: possibly what do you need?
[03:40:52] <PetefromTn> Connor: I can help you with what little I know man... If you hang around here once the machine is running I am gonna be looking for work for it fast and furious so I can pay back myself for all this money and time LOL

[03:41:26] <PetefromTn> There was a guy in Nashville selling a pair of CNC machininst vises for a reasonable price. Looked like the shars chinese ones....
[03:42:41] <gammax> speaking of vises... is there truly a difference between a 400 dollar vise and a chinese one?
[03:42:56] <nazarm> yes
[03:42:58] <WalterN> when looking at laser beam divergence, the units generally given are "NA"... what does NA mean?
[03:42:59] <PetefromTn> Art told me that Mike Kilroy posted in a couple threads about using a believe it or not water heater element as a resistor for the spindle...
[03:43:08] <PetefromTn> Hell yes is a better answer LOL..
[03:43:13] <WalterN> its a half angle thing... but.. degrees? radians?
[03:44:12] <PetefromTn> Altho some of the chinese cheaper vises are getting a LOT better lately. Still cannot beat a good kurt for the money. There are several better vises out there but the kurts are worth every penny in my experience.
[03:44:15] <Connor> http://www.tormach.com/store/index.php?app=ecom&ns=catshow&ref=multicat_cnc_vise
[03:44:21] <Connor> I think that would work good on my g0704.
[03:44:51] <PetefromTn> Don't you have a five inch now?
[03:45:01] <nazarm> a worn out old and beat up kurt vise is about the same quality of new chinese vise
[03:45:12] <Connor> Yes. But.. standard machinist vise.. not cnc style.
[03:45:16] <PetefromTn> LOL yes exactly....
[03:45:20] <nazarm> and I'm say totally destroyed kurt vise
[03:45:30] <Connor> Wit that one.. I could make it flush so it doesn't over hang the back of my table..
[03:45:51] <Connor> I can with the one I have now.. but.. Would just have to use the edge clamps..
[03:46:05] <PetefromTn> That was a problem for me with the RF45, I had to use the front tee slot to hold down the vise...
[03:46:25] <nazarm> gammax: but we don't have to much in the way of photos of it all pulled apart
[03:46:28] <Connor> I've got mine in the center slot right now.. loose about 1"
[03:46:48] <PetefromTn> Honestly unless you have a need to buy the CNC vise for some specific application I'd just keep the one you have.
[03:46:53] <gammax> nazarm the more you have the better. I would owe you a debt!
[03:47:04] <PetefromTn> Clamp it wherever you need it.
[03:47:35] <Connor> I *HATE* having to tram the dang thing every time I move it..
[03:47:36] <PetefromTn> Something else to consider is to buy a nice screwless vise to go with it...
[03:47:54] <PetefromTn> well you gotta get used to that, don't you have it keyed?
[03:48:02] <Connor> No.
[03:48:14] <PetefromTn> Well that really helps get you close..
[03:48:37] <PetefromTn> I'm gonna need to find a vise for this monster soon LOL
[03:48:39] <Connor> I have them sitting here.. I think they expect you to machine them down.. because they don't fit.. the vise OR my keyway.
[03:48:57] <PetefromTn> Yup you gotta mill them to fit...
[03:49:09] <gammax> the t bar things?
[03:49:28] <Connor> gammax: The keyway ?
[03:49:56] <Connor> PetefromTn: I wasn't confident enough to mill them yet when I got the machine..
[03:50:02] <PetefromTn> It sure was cool to cut some metal with the VMC tonight. Tomorrow I am gonna start reassembling the table guards so I can use it the way it was meant to be used. Just want to really clean the linear guideways and stuff...

[03:51:30] <PetefromTn> Joe in PA that helped me to try to get the original control working has the same exact machine and he uses something calle trim sol or something like that and It looks pretty good....

[03:52:10] <Connor> I need to get a refractometer.. as I don't have one yet.. and It's been sitting for a while now.. so I know I need to add water..
[03:52:23] <PetefromTn> That Tormach stuff is supposed to be pretty good but I would need a BUNCH of it I think..... I cannot remember how many gallons it takes to fill the system but it is a bunch....
[03:52:26] <gammax> I have TRIM MICROSL585XT
[03:52:40] <PetefromTn> How ya like it?
[03:52:54] <Connor> 20:1 dilution.
[03:53:14] <PetefromTn> Yep I think my machine takes like 50 gallons or more...
[03:53:20] <gammax> I havnt even opened the bottle lol
[03:53:32] <PetefromTn> gallon?
[03:53:54] <Connor> depending on what your doing... you can go up to 30:1
[03:54:15] <Connor> I've not used it to cut anything yet.
[03:54:28] <nazarm> gammax: No luck finding more photos but if you want I can ask the other guys if they have some
[03:54:35] <PetefromTn> In a machine of this size you want to keep the water ratio kinda rich so you have less chance of funking up...
[03:54:42] <gammax> nazarm, That would be great!
[03:55:03] <Connor> more coolant? or more water ?
[03:55:08] <PetefromTn> You need to get that enclosure built. I cannot imagine having a CNC mill without an enclosure for flood coolant.
[03:55:12] <nazarm> feel free to msg me your email and I'll see what I can do
[03:55:14] <PetefromTn> More coolant...
[03:55:15] <Connor> I ust don't anything to rust..
[03:55:31] <Connor> Just..
[03:55:46] <PetefromTn> If you keep it from evaporating and wipe down every time you use it there is no issue...
[03:56:05] <Connor> They say the coolant doesn't evaporate.. just the water..
[03:56:08] <Connor> so, that's good
[03:56:23] <L84Supper> http://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/tls/3726077310.html it's back
[03:56:35] <PetefromTn> I used that blue stuff, cool mist or whatever for awhile on the RF45 and it worked okay but it made black marks under my vise that were a bitch to remove...
[03:57:00] <gammax> L84Supper, damn thats big!
[03:57:36] <Connor> I may want you to come over and look at my shop in person and help me figure out the enclosure and help me design it..
[03:57:49] <PetefromTn> Acroloc, those were actually decent machines years back. They have a funky toolholder setup tho..
[03:57:55] <nazarm> with coolmist it's a good idea to lay down some LPS
[03:58:03] <PetefromTn> that fourth axis would look good on my Cincinatti..
[03:58:21] <PetefromTn> Connor: No problem...
[03:58:25] <Connor> I love the C-clamp as a knob.
[03:58:28] <PetefromTn> nazarm: LPS?
[03:58:36] <L84Supper> PetefromTn: it comes with tooling and somebody still makes it
[03:58:55] <PetefromTn> Oh it's yours?
[03:58:59] <gammax> is there still linuxcnc fest's?
[03:59:08] <L84Supper> nah, it's just nearby
[03:59:15] <PetefromTn> gammax: yeah at my house LOL....
[03:59:30] <PetefromTn> Are you gonna grab it?
[03:59:52] <PetefromTn> That might make a cool retrofit project if you like those machines and have the space....
[04:00:06] <nazarm> PetefromTn: Corrosion inhibitors
[04:00:25] <PetefromTn> I'm loving my Cincinatti it is just big enough for what I want to do but fits in my shop easily...
[04:00:30] <nazarm> it's just a barrier against the coolmist essentially
[04:00:38] <PetefromTn> Who makes that?
[04:00:54] <gammax> anyone have cad files for gang tool holders? :D
[04:01:00] <nazarm> lpslabs.com
[04:01:07] <Connor> You shouldn't need a Corrosion inhibitor for Coolant.. that's just lame..
[04:01:20] <L84Supper> PetefromTn: I have plenty of space, just not the time
[04:01:47] <PetefromTn> L84Supper: LOL.... I think the 4500 RPM spindle would get old.
[04:02:28] <PetefromTn> gammax: That is such a simple thing, just basically a block with holes in it and you would need to size it to your lathe's travels and what holders you intend to use in it...
[04:02:32] <nazarm> yeah, it's a bit lame but the coolmist works well
[04:02:53] <nazarm> I've been interested in a alternative but haven't found one yet
[04:03:36] <PetefromTn> Connor: I am thinking it would be ool to use one of those extra solid state relays to power a pneumatic solenoid to use for a mister in the Cincinatti or just an air blower.
[04:03:44] <PetefromTn> Cool...
[04:03:46] <gammax> PetefromTn, trying to get one as a referance,
[04:04:00] <Connor> PetefromTn: Wouldn't be a problem.
[04:04:14] <Connor> Still need to figure out the motor setup for the tool changer.
[04:04:29] <Connor> I sure hope it's not a 3 phase motor..
[04:04:30] <L84Supper> PetefromTn: how are those spindles attached to the head?
[04:04:55] <PetefromTn> gammax: That would be hard since each lathe has different center heights and travels and each person uses different toolholders..
[04:05:12] <PetefromTn> Connor: Honestly I will check it out tomorrow....

[04:17:13] <PetefromTn> Yeah man especially if you have some experience with them.
[04:17:33] <PetefromTn> Looks like a well built machine anyways. My buddy made some cool stuff with it.
[04:18:11] <PetefromTn> Connor: hey man How can I get the control to show spindle speed now?

[04:21:03] <L84Supper> PetefromTn: I'd never use Mach
[04:22:00] <PetefromTn> L84Supper: I used it on my first retrofit of my RF45 and it is fine honestly but now that I have used LinuxCNC I am sold on it. It is just a better more industrial control all around from what I have seen so far.

[04:27:22] <Connor> PetefromTn: Okay. my config was no help at all.. I forgot I'm doing some major internal PID stuff with mine.. I need to clean it up.. but.. basicly, we add a new control to the gladevcp panel.. and tie to to the commanded-velocity abs pin that we made.
[04:27:57] <PetefromTn> You already did that, the bar is there just don't work yet LOL
[04:28:11] <Connor> No, that's the actual speed.. not the commanded speed.
[04:28:26] <Connor> and since we don't have a encoder.. it doesn't show anything yet.

[04:41:34] <LeelooMinai> Any ideas what forces are involved when millin aluminium on a small DIY CNC?
[04:41:51] <r00t4rd3d> 8pounds per square inch.
[04:42:09] <LeelooMinai> I Isn't that pressure?
[04:42:17] <r00t4rd3d> i was kidding
[04:42:35] <r00t4rd3d> but really without knowing your machine, its a guess.
[04:42:44] <LeelooMinai> I mean some approximate force in Newtons that would work on the spindle
[04:43:01] <LeelooMinai> I don't think it's dependent on the machine (?)
[04:43:07] <r00t4rd3d> sure it is

[04:44:09] <LeelooMinai> My question is about material really - millin aluminium at normal/slow speed
[04:44:18] <r00t4rd3d> if I build a cnc with 1/4 screws compared to one with 1/2 screws, would the forces be different?
[04:44:39] <r00t4rd3d> lead*
[04:44:42] <LeelooMinai> r00t4rd3d: I am calculationg it in reverse - I need to know forces to apply to the CNC:)
[04:45:10] <LeelooMinai> And you think I want to know what CNC will do to the workpiece...
[04:45:55] <LeelooMinai> Surely there must be some approcimate force figure that will work for aluminium
[04:55:25] <r00t4rd3d> I doubt you will find someone who can give you an accurate number. The structural integrity of your machine and how it handles and dissipates force makes it impossible to tell you a number for a DIY machine.

[17:26:01] <largecheesepuff> yeah, I'm still fuzzy on that topic
[17:26:48] <IchGuckLive> you can remap your own
[17:27:51] <largecheesepuff> that is what I looking at

[18:25:25] <PCW> Lovely that they have a closed motion control interface API
[18:26:11] <archivist> that will force the chinese to linuxcnc
[18:27:20] <cradek> the stated purpose is to keep too many (or "new"?) people from making hardware that works with it
[18:27:30] <L84Supper> it will be interesting in the next year to see what the reaction is in China
[18:28:09] <archivist> 15 minutes between restarts, unusable for the free version
[18:30:33] <skunkworks> I don't see this going well..
[18:30:41] * skunkworks hugs linuxcnc again and again
[18:31:10] <PCW> Sounds like IBM and PS2 (everybody must pay a license fee to join our happy happy gang, hey! where are you guys going?)
[18:32:07] <cradek> sounds like they might have written it "the emacs way" (http://technomancy.us/161) which is good for them
[18:32:32] <cradek> PCW: don't you still use microchannel machines!?
[18:33:24] <DaViruz> i threw away my MCA machine less than a year ago
[18:34:13] <PCW> Much smarter than ISA and if they made it open it might have succeeded
[18:34:22] <cradek> that's sure true
[18:34:43] <cradek> although EISA failed over time, too
[18:35:16] <cradek> it was pretty cool - give it the floppies that came with the cards, and it'd work out all the settings
[18:37:18] <DaViruz> i wonder how much problems would have surfaced if it had seen widespread use though..
[18:37:58] <PCW> True of most any interface...

[19:26:28] <DJ9DJ> Loetmichel is
[19:28:29] <Loetmichel> a bit
[19:28:40] <WalterN> I've used it a couple times... I kind of hate it though
[19:28:49] <WalterN> kind of a lot
[19:29:38] <tjb1> Anyone willing to convert a dxf to an appropriate svg file for ponoko?
[19:32:59] <LeelooMinai> tjb1: Use inkscape, but make sure ut exports in mm not pixels
[19:33:16] <tjb1> I tried inkscape
[19:33:21] <tjb1> I tried illustrator
[19:33:30] <tjb1> Ponoko keeps telling me it is wrong
[19:33:54] <LeelooMinai> tjb1: Did you look into exported svg and verified the main units are in mm?
[19:34:10] -!- psha has quit [Quit: Lost terminal]
[19:34:16] <tjb1> Not sure how?
[19:34:20] <LeelooMinai> You can open svg in any text editor
[19:34:38] <tjb1> At one point ponoko was saying too much blue which meant the line was too thick or it had fill or something

[19:35:51] <LeelooMinai> Hmm...

[19:36:28] <LeelooMinai> OK, I see - yes, laser cutting
[19:36:29] <tjb1> https://www.ponoko.com/
[19:36:57] <LeelooMinai> So... what I sad about mm, plus, hm, well, maybe make all lines thin in Inkscape?
[19:37:28] <WalterN> tjb1: there are issues with making something in inkscape and opening it with corelldraw... I found just exporting the SVG (in inkscape) to a PS file, and opening the PS file in corell draw to work for me
[19:37:46] <tjb1> I made it in solidworks
[19:38:47] <WalterN> DXF in inkscape is... weird
[19:39:11] <LeelooMinai> well, Inskape is used mostly to go from DXF to SVG...
[19:39:19] <LeelooMinai> I used it as a converter that is
[19:39:28] <LeelooMinai> In my case I had export from SolidEdge
[19:39:47] <WalterN> I was trying to use DXF to open the SVG in corell draw
[19:39:57] <WalterN> did I mention that I hate corell draw?
[19:40:32] <Loetmichel> tjb1: dxf is a problem because corel has a bux in the dxf import: anythin bigger than 254mm will get resized to 254mm
[19:40:53] <WalterN> corel is one giant bug

[19:45:01] <Loetmichel> corel is telling me 254,0mm by 219.97mm can you correct that?
[19:45:11] <tjb1> The sides are 260.375
[19:45:13] <tjb1> the flat sides
[19:49:07] <andypugh> Sanity check? I just installed a 2.5mm mono jack plug and socket in my machine. As soon as I insert the jack plug there is continuity between every terminal in the socket, and the case, and every terminal in the plug. That's wrong isn't it?
[19:49:34] <Loetmichel> it is ;-)
[19:49:43] <Loetmichel> tjb1: svg output?
[19:49:52] <tjb1> ?
