[12:30:53] <MrSunshine> hmm trying to make a pressfit for 608 bearings ... havent found any figures on it so ... well i can press the bearing in without much effort with the drill press, but problem is that the bearing after i press it in starts "cogging" while if i take it out again it isnt cogging anymore =)
[12:30:56] <MrSunshine> kogging ?
[12:31:04] <MrSunshine> oh well, anyone got any idea for me here? to tight a fit ?
[12:32:33] <archivist> cogging was right
[12:33:21] <archivist> but press fits are a bit of an art and you seem to have too much interference
[12:33:24] <MrSunshine> might be to thin walls in it for a pres fit? :)
[12:33:49] <MrSunshine> well i guess ill have to take it out then and try and sand up the hole some =)
[12:34:15] <archivist> bearings can be got with excess clearance for a defined press fit
[12:34:55] <archivist> what are the current measurements of bearing and hole
[12:35:38] <archivist> rule of thumb is 1 thou plus a thou per inch of diameter ish
[12:36:49] <MrSunshine> hole is 0.02mm under and bering is exactly 22mm
[12:36:57] <MrSunshine> hole is 22mm
[12:37:29] <archivist> most rules I have seen start at inch diameter anything below is an experiment
[12:41:00] <archivist> if your bearing is made for running fit, then it will be too tight in a press fit probably
[12:41:21] <MrSunshine> hmm might be like that =)
[12:41:50] <MrSunshine> gonna try and sand up the hole some with some "emmory?" and a drill =)
[12:41:55] <MrSunshine> to make it a but loser =)
[12:42:35] <archivist> and how well can you measure those sizes
[12:42:50] <MrSunshine> using telescoping guages and micrometer

[12:44:15] <MrSunshine> well accuracy i dont know of the micrometer realy ... but 0.01mm
[12:44:23] <MrSunshine> its not a high end one =)
[12:44:29] <DJ9DJ> re
[12:44:31] <archivist> it may be that your interference is slightly too much
[12:47:10] <MrSunshine> i should make some press"blocks" for bearing pressing as a lathe project =)

[13:47:45] <PetefromTn> Heya Alex..
[13:47:52] <tjtr33> you can be a power too, just be a power with a plan
[13:47:58] <PetefromTn> I thought WE ALL were the powers that be?
[13:48:38] <Tom_itx> items should be concrete proposals and not open questions
[13:48:44] <Tom_itx> not irc chit chat
[13:49:24] <PetefromTn> Okay so what are some ideas you guys are interested in proposing?
[13:49:38] <bigalex> What is the object of the meeting .... is it a sort of brain storming ?
[13:49:51] <tjtr33> and prediscussed here on this normal irc to 'kick it around' maybe the idea is great, maybe stupid

[13:57:29] <mshaver1> WOW!
[13:57:32] <zultron> Andy does. We've chatted a little about them.

[14:00:30] <zultron> It's a friction ring that can be moved closer to or farther from the center of the flywheel.
[14:00:46] <PetefromTn> zultron: Nice man, so that is what the great and mysterious Zultron looks like LOL and his dad too!
[14:01:15] <zultron> There's a 'clutch' that controls the pressure between them.
[14:01:52] <mshaver1> I didn't know it had a CVT, the hub-center-steering thing is what attracted me :) Seriously, next time you're near the machine with a camera, go wild!
[14:02:00] <zultron> Hi PetefromTn! I've seen you chatting around here, but didn't know I had a reputation here. :)
[14:02:22] <PetefromTn> zultron: LOL nope, I'm just a noob LOL
[14:02:48] <zultron> mshaver1, I'll do that for sure. Silly that I haven't already. I'm rather amazed you know what a Neracar is.

[14:05:07] <PetefromTn> just thinking about this meeting later on, I am new to thhe whle LinuxCNC thing here but I am wondering if there is a way to say in manual mode when you are not running a program can you turn the spindle on and off while keeping the speed setting. Also I have a glade VCP panel with MPG buttons and i is going to be getting spindle feedback information at some point but I am wondering if there is a spindle speed readout in the
[14:05:07] <PetefromTn> basic axis display somewhere? Can you somehow set a spindle speed and then be able to turn off the spindle and turn it back on without having to ramp it up?
[14:05:25] <Tom_itx> http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html
[14:05:27] <Tom_itx> for you who are trying to figure out what time the meeting starts, it's 1600 GMT
[14:06:21] <Tom_itx> we can put ppl on the moon but we can't tell time
[14:06:44] <bigalex> Is there any kind of meeting report from the Wichita meeting people ?
[14:06:54] <PetefromTn> Also I would love to see buttons on the axis display that give you quickly say 2.5%,5% 25%,50% 100% etc feedrate overrides.
[14:07:12] <Tom_itx> PetefromTn, add them
[14:07:15] <PetefromTn> I know many of these things can be implemented with custom setups
[14:07:32] <Tom_itx> i think this is more for the 'core' of linuxcnc
[14:07:41] <PetefromTn> but for those that are new and NOT programmers it would be nice.
[14:07:59] <Tom_itx> that's where you 'learn' to program
[14:08:09] <Tom_itx> i did, i think most here that do it didd
[14:08:21] <archivist> some would mention the safety aspect
[14:08:30] <PetefromTn> Another thing the HAAS control had that was great was the ability to count cycle and runs on particular tools.
[14:08:40] <Tom_itx> i can do that now
[14:09:03] <mshaver1> zultron: I was an avid motorcyclist (some motocross, but enduro and hare scrambles really) from 13 to about 24 when I had my first child. Lately I've been interested in lightweight bikes which I've been making by cutting up 50cc chinese scooters. There's a whole group of people interested in "feet forward" motorcycle design at feet_forward@yahoogroups.com.
[14:09:10] <archivist> so setting an intentional speed is better than some remembered speed
[14:09:35] <PetefromTn> not understanding your question...
[14:09:58] <zultron> Ah, yes, I've come across the feet forward group while researching Neracars. Neat!
[14:10:23] <zultron> They do any electric bikes?
[14:10:33] <zultron> (or you?)
[14:10:46] <PetefromTn> zultron: Always wondered why we don't see recumbent motorcycles or semi recumbent.
[14:11:05] <mshaver1> Wait a minute...looking for a link I want to show you...
[14:11:31] <tjtr33> zultron i used cyclone on a mongoose, and an 82cc on schwinn ambassador 700c
[14:12:01] <PetefromTn> I build my own recumbent bicycles and have considered making a motorized one..

[14:19:09] <mshaver1> zultron: I haven't made any electric bikes myself, but the approach I like is this one: http://www.recumbents.com/wisil/shumaker/
[14:19:09] <zultron> Recumbent motorcycle? That sounds freaky.... Feet-forward not good enough?
[14:19:33] <PetefromTn> zultron: Hey man what kinda engine was in that bike? I was just looking at the pictures, it is an interesting and inventive design, expecially for the time it was built.
[14:20:51] <mshaver1> I've visited with these guys in Ann Arbor: http://www.currentmotor.com/ They're really serious about electric motorcycles.
[14:20:56] <zultron> Oh, wow, that doesn't look like a cut up Chinese 50cc scooter!
[14:21:12] <PetefromTn> zultron: Actually it is safer with your feet out front in a crash. on typical bikes when you wreck the first thing that happens is you go head over handlebars. Lots of broken necks and spinal injuries. I wrecked my first recumbent and just got some scratches, my feet took most of the impact.
[14:21:24] <mshaver1> zultron: That's not mine :(
[14:21:37] <zultron> PetefromTn, nothing special, a single cylinder 2 stroke, I think about 3 HP.
[14:21:53] <PetefromTn> Ive seen some of the hub motored wheels on bent bikes before.
[14:22:31] <PetefromTn> zultron: Sweet..
[14:23:14] <zultron> Well, that does sound convincing. Reminds me of the "first thing to go through a bug's mind when it hits your windshield" joke....

[14:31:59] <zultron> The Chinese electric scooters have ungeared electric motors in the rear hub.
[14:32:54] <zultron> I like the idea of doing away with gears by customizing the motor for the application, and then doing a good job of controlling it with the electronics. :)

[14:46:23] <tjtr33> the feature allows mid-cut inspection as in "Hey Jerry the client wants .107 on that tip, you got stock left?" or "Stop now for the fire drill and watch that fancy bit later"

[14:50:44] <skunkworks> tjtr33: it would be nice. Right now I just hit pause - run spindle override to 0 and check things out. But run from line seems to work well if I need to abort

[15:00:31] <PetefromTn> I have a VMC with a toolchanger that does not work yet so there should be some ass kicking going on over at my shop too..
[15:00:43] <cradek> a deeper change (restructure) is needed for changing offsets while paused
[15:00:44] <ssi> but that means pulling the machine off the stand, which if I'm alone means disassembling it

[15:02:12] <PetefromTn> oh you too...
[15:02:26] <ssi> I was working hard on the mill, and then I went to california,
[15:02:29] <JLuc69> thinks, andypugh :D
[15:02:31] <PetefromTn> I'm sorry LOL
[15:02:34] <cradek> it implements "go back to the place where you paused" after doing a move. but it implements a totally different kind of jogging, so you don't have the usual jog features including incremental and wheel
[15:02:37] <ssi> and I had dinner with my gf's cousin who is designing a bitcoin mining asic
[15:02:40] <ssi> and so I went down that rabbit hole
[15:02:56] <ssi> so I'm spending my time designing PCBs and writing mining software and doing DTOs for the beagle to do SPI comms and crap
[15:02:58] <andypugh> JLuc69: Mais, si vous avez un question, je peut lire Francais, meis je ne pas parle Francais
[15:03:03] <PetefromTn> dunno what the hell that is...
[15:03:11] <ssi> yea, that's ok, it's a rabbit hole ;)
[15:03:26] <PetefromTn> it would be great if the jog while paused used the standard controls...
[15:03:26] <ssi> also I got some beaglebone capes that have little fpgas on them
[15:03:32] <JLuc69> linuxCNC pilote les cartes sries ?
[15:03:56] <eric_unterhausen> would it be unkind to add an agenda item where we all ridicule Matt Shaver?
[15:03:56] <tjtr33> cradek, thx, i get the 'return to' idea, whats the 'different kind of jogging'?
[15:03:57] <ssi> and one thing I'd really like to do is try to understand how the hostmot2 driver works, to see if I can maybe make a port of it that'll run the fpga on the beagle as if it were a little 5i25
[15:04:17] <Tom_itx> is there source for it?
[15:04:21] <cradek> tjtr33: I'd have to read the patch again
[15:04:26] <tjtr33> thx
[15:04:26] <ssi> for the driver? sure
[15:04:27] <JLuc69> sorry : thank you, andypugh :p
[15:04:36] <ssi> it's just another hill to climp
[15:04:43] <tjtr33> eric: it was really a very clever way to wake you guys up :)
[15:04:46] <Tom_itx> plenty of hills
[15:05:04] <PetefromTn> ya done anything on that sweet aero plane?
[15:05:15] <andypugh> JLuc69: RS232?

[15:05:19] <ssi> and I need to finish that up
[15:05:30] <JLuc69> andypugh: yes
[15:05:30] <PetefromTn> so you have ANOTHER plane?
[15:05:34] <ssi> I bought new front glass for it at oshkosh in 2011, and it's been sitting around mocking me
[15:05:38] <ssi> yea
[15:05:47] <ssi> so I finally ripped the glass out and forced myself to do that
[15:05:49] <PetefromTn> Dude you are really starting to piss me off LOL
[15:05:55] <ssi> plus pulled the fuel tank that was leaking and sealed it up
[15:06:11] <ssi> plus did this obnoxious new AD that came out in march that required replacing the elevator cable turnbuckles and rerigging
[15:06:15] <ssi> and they're back in the tailcone
[15:06:20] <ssi> and I'm a fat man with claustrophobia
[15:06:21] <ssi> so that wasn't fun
[15:06:48] <PetefromTn> kinda reminds me of Ace Ventura and the rhino LOL
[15:06:50] <ssi> anyway it's mostly all done... fuel tank is back in place and hooked up, but I gotta put the screws in it
[15:07:01] <ssi> I pulled the altimeter out because I need to get an IFR cert done
[15:07:08] <ssi> but I think I may just stick it back in and fly
[15:07:10] <ssi> seats need to go back in
[15:07:11] <skunkworks> I have never been to the oshkosh air fest.. We had a smaller one in lacrosse which was local to me.

[15:14:26] <PetefromTn> jeez that thing is a pig huh.... you need an electric motor LOL
[15:14:53] <ssi> it's a pig, and it's not the engine's fault... it's the aerodynamics

[15:16:07] <PetefromTn> I have nothing to be bragging about here, my belly is not exactly tight
[15:16:29] <ssi> I figure as long as I'm smaller than my flyin buddy, I'm still winning
[15:16:31] <PetefromTn> well it is when I eat a big dinner soemtimes
[15:16:36] <andypugh> JLuc69: I think that does the _same_ job as LinuxCNC. I don't think it needs LinuxCNC.

[15:16:47] <PetefromTn> Hell if you're flyin at all you're winnin...
[15:16:53] <ssi> I don't think the two of us are gonna fly the rv together very much
[15:16:55] <ssi> it's a bit tight ;)
[15:17:27] <PetefromTn> yeah that whole fuselage prolly weighs less than that guy huh..
[15:17:35] <ssi> right now I think it might
[15:17:36] <ssi> he's about 345
[15:17:42] <PetefromTn> HOLY!
[15:17:47] <ssi> I dunno what the fuselage weighs as it is now
[15:17:50] <ssi> although the avionics are in it now
[15:17:55] <ssi> the whole airplane should weigh about 1100
[15:18:13] <PetefromTn> thats pretty damn light...
[15:18:13] <ssi> engine is about 280 of that, prop is another 60
[15:18:16] <ssi> yea it's light

[15:18:40] <ssi> they cruise about 180kt
[15:18:45] <ssi> some guys are getting as much as 188kt on 10gph

[15:19:06] <ssi> on 10 gallons ratehr
[15:19:13] <ssi> um 216 * 4.2
[15:19:26] <ssi> 907 statute miles at a fast cruise
[15:19:29] <ssi> longer if you go slower
[15:19:37] <ssi> probably 1100 or 1200 miles at 150 or 160kt
[15:19:44] <PetefromTn> damn thats pretty sweet.
[15:19:45] <andypugh> JLuc69: LinuxCNC is a "motion controller" and the InterpCNC is _also_ a motion controller.
[15:20:00] <ssi> range is longer than most peoples' bladder range, which is a good place to be :)
[15:20:20] <PetefromTn> plus you can do loopty loops LOL
[15:20:22] <ssi> but I'm hoping I can do atlanta to sanfran in two legs.... that's optimistic, it might need to be three
[15:20:26] <ssi> yes you can ;)
[15:20:33] <tjtr33> JLuc69, andy's right, if you have the 'pilot' Galaad and the card, you're complete
[15:20:38] <ssi> across the country in one day, upside down
[15:20:47] <PetefromTn> beautiful....
[15:20:55] <ssi> I've got five point harnesses for it
[15:20:56] <JLuc69> andypugh: en fait, je recherche un autre soft que galaad pour piloter ma machine
[15:20:58] <ssi> and memory foam seats
[15:20:58] <pfred1> andypugh this board is pretty neat it runs off of USB
[15:21:09] <andypugh> I flew loops before I could legally ride a moped. Mad world.
[15:21:16] <ssi> andypugh: high five ;)
[15:21:31] <ssi> I took some aerobatic instruction in an extra 330 two summers ago
[15:21:34] <ssi> that was pretty crazy
[15:21:35] <PetefromTn> the only loops I have done were on my BMX bike...
[15:21:44] <ssi> PetefromTn: that's pretty impressive in itself :)
[15:22:00] <pfred1> PetefromTn I got hit by a car riding a bike once i did a loop over his hood
[15:22:03] <PetefromTn> yeah but I busted my ass far too many times.
[15:22:07] <ssi> heheh
[15:22:28] <ssi> PetefromTn: so you don't think electronics in the base cabinet is a good idea huh
[15:22:33] <PetefromTn> now I am just content to ride my homebuilt recumbent bike down the bike trails.

[15:23:31] <ssi> I use mist a lot
[15:23:31] <PetefromTn> pfred1: LOL....ouch very ouch.
[15:23:48] <andypugh> I was in the Air Cadets. We were taken flying by regular RAF guys pretty frequently. They would normally ask "do you want to do some aerobatics" and then when you said "yes" they would give you a fairground ride. But that time, when I was 15, the guy asked a different question using the same words.
[15:23:53] <PetefromTn> not spoiled, just determined. I had flood on the RF45 too

[15:24:27] <ssi> andypugh: there are some guys who think it's funny to make their passengers puke
[15:24:36] <PetefromTn> I went for an aerobatic ride in a T38 with a USAF pilot at Mcclellen AFB Sacto once...
[15:24:38] <ssi> personally I'm not a fan of cleaning up puke out of my plane
[15:24:48] _BJFreeman is now known as BJfreeman
[15:24:58] <PetefromTn> He said, okay man ya ready, I mistakenly said yeah...
[15:24:58] <andypugh> "Would you like to do some aerobatics?" "Yes", "OK, we will start with a stall turn. Pull the stick back, point straight up, and when it starts to fall back, full left rudder" "Yikes!!"
[15:25:07] <IchGuckLive> hi all B)
[15:25:24] <PetefromTn> I know know what ballistic actually means....
[15:25:26] <archivist> andypugh, a bar steward did that to me in a glider !
[15:25:30] <ssi> yea if it comes backwards it's a tailslide
[15:25:38] <ssi> those are fun, but that's one maneuver my RV shouldn't do
[15:25:48] <ssi> cause the rudder is cabled, and if you don't really pin it with your feet it'll get blown onto the stops
[15:25:52] <ssi> and can break stuff
[15:26:11] <PetefromTn> is there no limiting mechanism>
[15:26:20] <ssi> competition (and military) airplanes are designed for the controls to be driven backwards without damage
[15:26:28] <andypugh> That went well, so then we did a loop "Nose down a bit, full throttle, when we hit 112kts then pull the stick all the way back"
[15:26:33] <ssi> PetefromTn: yea there is but it'll damage the rudder if you use too much force
[15:26:49] <PetefromTn> aah.
[15:26:59] <IchGuckLive> oh powerboad miniture sailings
[15:27:03] <ssi> the stops are designed to stop your feet from pushing it beyond a certain point

[15:27:35] <PetefromTn> the pilot, can't remember his name, did some snap rolls and then plunged down and I lost it after that. he just laughed and chuckled
[15:27:35] <IchGuckLive> americas cup ofshore catamaran O.O
[15:27:41] <ssi> andypugh: for what it's worth, aerobatics are much more fun and much easier to tolerate from a nausea standpoint when you're running the stick
[15:28:33] <andypugh> I managed the loop, so then we did a figure 8. I reckon the guy must have had a high excitement tolerance. Or was secretly hoping to get to recover from an out-of-control situation. :-)
[15:28:39] <ssi> hehehe
[15:28:46] <IchGuckLive> therefore i build Carriers they dont go out at hurricane winds ssi
[15:29:05] <PetefromTn> Ya know the best part, after we landed and I got my guts back inside me, I asked him while walking back to the hanger how that plane compares to an F15 or similar, he thought for a moment and just said....well......IT DOESN"T!!
[15:29:13] <ssi> heheh no it doesn't
[15:29:31] <andypugh> Yes, I had no trouble at all with sickness when I was flying the stunts, wheres at was always a little bit of a struggle when I was a passenger.
[15:29:35] <IchGuckLive> today the Austria Airpower went on live
[15:29:37] <PetefromTn> I cannot imagine the forces on your body in violent maneuvers in an F15 or similar.
[15:29:40] <ssi> andypugh: yea that's how it goes
[15:29:58] <ssi> andypugh: although even if you're flying, most people still can only tolerate 30 minutes or so of aerobatics before they get queasy, when they're beginners
[15:30:02] <ssi> you have to build up a tolerance to it
[15:30:04] <ssi> I still haven't really
[15:30:14] <ssi> but it's been years since i've done any aerobatics

[15:33:28] <IchGuckLive> preset feedrate override is in ini
[15:33:49] <IchGuckLive> or do you mean on run with a poti
[15:34:17] <PetefromTn> huh? I am talking about addind some buttons in addition to the sliders for the feedrate override on the main axis block
[15:34:29] <PetefromTn> whats poti?
[15:34:47] <IchGuckLive> there is a feedoverride bar
[15:34:48] <tjtr33> potentiometer = pot = round resitor thingy
[15:35:22] <pfred1> variable resistor
[15:35:31] <PetefromTn> I know this is supposedly about the core infrastructure but having used the linuxCNC system a bit now on my Cincinatti arrow and having used the Haas Control there is a lot of nice stuff that could be added.
[15:35:46] <PetefromTn> Oh never heard it referred to that way.
[15:36:31] <pfred1> PetefromTn http://www.geofex.com/article_folders/potsecrets/potscret.htm

[15:38:18] <tjtr33> geek-speek from around the world, gotta be a bit creative when listening :)
[15:38:23] <PetefromTn> I am talking more about a built in option here, that way you can use keystrokes etc..
[15:38:33] <pfred1> PetefromTn today too many people think of the wrong thing if you say just pot?
[15:38:41] <PetefromTn> LOL

[15:39:26] <ssi> it's tiny, but it's not light :)

[15:40:05] <skunkworks> PetefromTn: the axis gui as keystrokes for pretty much everything...
[15:40:07] <pfred1> ssi although my cherry picker engine hoist is no lightweight to setup either
[15:40:08] <ssi> I just sorta slid it to the edge and gently lowered it

[15:44:02] <ssi> it's pretty small
[15:44:18] <IchGuckLive> there are 250.000 mach licences sold and the rest is coming to as for the non liniar 3axis
[15:44:19] <PetefromTn> I'm only 6' about 220
[15:44:47] <PetefromTn> don't really care for mach3 anymore but I do like some of the features.
[15:45:13] <pfred1> PetefromTn mach3 and LinuxCNC both come from the same code base
[15:45:13] <PetefromTn> tjtr33: why not?
[15:45:22] <PetefromTn> yeah I am aware of that.
[15:45:30] <pfred1> PetefromTn they are both based on the original NIST EMC code
[15:45:42] <PetefromTn> IMHO there are just certain things that make using the control so much easier.
[15:46:19] <pfred1> PetefromTn for me a Windows license is a bit problematic a thing to acquire
[15:46:20] <PetefromTn> The Haas control was a bit confusing and complex but once you learned it there was not much it could not do
[15:46:34] <IchGuckLive> PetefromTn: agree
[15:46:36] <PetefromTn> pfred1: huh?
[15:46:47] <pfred1> PetefromTn I don't do Windows
[15:46:48] <IchGuckLive> i dot 4 minimills and 3 vf2 in stuck
[15:46:55] <tjtr33> PetefromTn, for mee it looks like english newspaper adverts, (too noisy) or a game, while a switch and a pot handles that entire jog group
[15:47:17] <PetefromTn> you mean on a pendant?
[15:47:30] <Meduza> I dont like that all mach3 interfaces looks like someone that have went wild in photoshop with all effects they could...
[15:47:37] <PetefromTn> not everyone has a pendant and not everyone can program one either.
[15:47:48] <Meduza> ok, axis looks boring, but it is at least cleaner
[15:47:52] <PetefromTn> Meduza: Agreed...
[15:47:53] <tjtr33> on a screen or a pendant, too many inouts to do the job
[15:47:57] <pfred1> Meduza the thing a Mach3 screen most reminds me of is video poker
[15:48:06] <tjtr33> *inputs
[15:48:13] <Meduza> yeah, that is quite close what it looks like, some random scammer poker site
[15:48:30] <IchGuckLive> Meduza: you can change the color and the output look like
[15:48:40] <pfred1> just glancing at it I think I don't want to play
[15:48:46] <PetefromTn> Honestly one of the things I LIKE about LinuxCNC is the clean look but it is missing some things that would make it easier. So far the Glade VCP stuff Connor helped me add is kinda quirky.
[15:49:25] <PetefromTn> Not bashing Connor he is awesome, but the panel is kinda over there somehow...\
[15:49:33] <Meduza> IchGuckLive: Yeah, but still all screenshots i have seen of it looks like crap and not like what you would expect for a proffessional mill control system
[15:49:52] <pfred1> PetefromTn well maybe you can write your own front end?
[15:49:52] <IchGuckLive> agree
[15:50:03] <PetefromTn> Haas IS a professional control system and it is kinda convoluted too...
[15:50:13] <Meduza> I am tough missing quite a lot from LinuxCNC in functionality... and the whole codebase feels aged...

[15:51:10] <PetefromTn> yeah I was kinda hoping this would not turn into the whole well if you want it, program it yourself arguement.
[15:51:17] <IchGuckLive> get you a git and start modificating
[15:51:24] <tjtr33> PetefromTn, start with pyvcp or gladevcp examples on the wiki. really, try a simple example
[15:51:39] <PetefromTn> already did, connor helped me..
[15:51:56] <IchGuckLive> all of us are happy as it is only PetefromTn wants to look at different colors
[15:52:09] <PetefromTn> I'm just saying the interface is too naked and plain.

[15:54:57] <pfred1> I have one of those rubber keyboards but it is kind of crappy to try to type on
[15:55:10] <PetefromTn> I bought a nice quality waterproof, moistureproof, dustproof keybard with a touch pad that works well so far.
[15:55:20] <ssi> yea I have one too but I hate it
[15:55:35] <pfred1> ssi a roll up keyboard?

[15:57:18] <ssi> and I have to make a little reducer for the fuel servo
[15:57:25] <ssi> it had one on the backside, but it was angled and too long
[15:57:28] <ssi> I need a shorter, straight one
[15:57:33] <ssi> will be a good cnc project
[15:57:43] <tjtr33> ready?
[15:57:49] <PetefromTn> will that thing even fit on your 0704?
[15:57:51] <ssi> it could be done manually, but I really would like for it to be a good smooth cone
[15:57:55] <ssi> no t hat won't need to
[15:58:05] <ssi> I just need to make a little 4x4x3" cube into a reducer
[15:59:00] <tjtr33> set ...

[16:13:27] <pfred1> I'm researching this pair of pliers I bought today. When I picked them up I thought they were made in Germany because i have a few German pairs that resemble it turns out they are made in England though
[16:13:37] <ssi> what are they?
[16:14:01] <pfred1> Just a little pair of stubby needle nosed pliers name Witherby on them
[16:14:55] <Loetmichel> if there is no "knipex" written on them there is no need to investigate, just throw them in the trash ;-)
[16:15:08] <ssi> Loetmichel: haha agreed
[16:15:18] <pfred1> Loetmichel knipex are not the best pliers in the world
[16:15:26] <ssi> yea, yea they are
[16:15:29] <ssi> :P
[16:15:33] <pfred1> no no theyy aren't
[16:15:36] <ssi> best I've run across anyway
[16:15:43] <ssi> despite being german ;)
[16:16:06] <pfred1> get some Swedish Lindstrom tools
[16:17:15] <Loetmichel> i was raised in a german city called "remscheid"... thats where Knipex, gedore Dowidat, belzer and many others come from... i think i can see good quality in tools if it is there ;-)
[16:18:30] <pfred1> one of my favorite pairs of pliers i have I bought for $3 out of a big cardboard box on Canal St. they have no country of origin on them at all but if i had to guess I'd say India
[16:19:34] <pfred1> they're good hard Indian steel I think, which means they're fairly soft jawwed
[16:21:24] <Loetmichel> pfred1: you mean linke this allen key? -> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=11708
[16:22:12] <Loetmichel> (taht was the fürst screw i tried with this key, and the last one ;-) and NO extra lever, just my hand ;-)

[17:17:54] <mpictor> oops I get your handles mixed up
[17:18:22] <mpictor> micges: have you used rtnet with config_preempt_rt, or only with xenomai?

[17:20:00] <mpictor> I'm trying to build a kernel with the preempt patch and rtdm

[17:22:15] <pfred1> mpictor looks like a pretty popular error based on the number of returns Google has for it
[17:22:54] <mpictor> pfred1: what did you google? I didn't see anything that looked relevant
[17:23:07] <pfred1> xenomai Rules.make No such file or directory
[17:25:19] <mpictor> afaics, only one of those results includes Rules.make... and it's unanswered
[17:25:55] <pfred1> this page seems to include detailed instructions http://www.berabera.info/oldblog/lenglet/howtos/realtimelinuxhowto/
[17:26:42] <mpictor> that's xenomai, though. I'm using a version of their rtdm driver, ported to rt_preempt
[17:27:57] <mpictor> I was able to compile xenomai but it doesn't like my laptop. I _think_ that rt_preempt will be ok and will be deterministic enough for the application
[17:28:42] <pfred1> laptops are usually poor candidates for real time
[17:29:08] <mpictor> I know. Thus "for the application" :)

[17:57:43] <zultron> CaptHindsight, let me know if you guys need instructions compiling it, but the base case is quite simple: ./configure && make
[17:58:04] <zultron> (prepended by ./autogen.sh, of course)
[17:58:09] <CaptHindsight> zultron: lets discuss this in -dev, memleak is in there
[17:58:21] <zultron> Oh yeah, wrong channel.
[17:59:00] <CaptHindsight> micges: "preepmpt_rt with rtnet had latenices obout 200us" is that something you actually built and tested?
[17:59:09] <micges> yes
[17:59:40] <micges> but it's not xenomai but normal kernel patched with preempt_rt patch
[17:59:53] <CaptHindsight> micges: what version was your kernel?
[18:00:19] <zultron> Why aren't you guys using pre-packaged preempt_rt kernels?
[18:00:23] <CaptHindsight> ok, we are trying to get RT-PREEMPT going on kernel v3.8
[18:01:44] <micges> I don't remember, but probably it was < 3.3
[18:02:22] <micges> it was many months ago and it was just to check latencies

[18:50:26] <CaptHindsight> unless they start with a casting they must lose >90% of the material they start with

[18:51:01] <andypugh> Most of the stuff at SSI was worse than that.
[18:52:24] <ssi> PetefromTn: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BN8ujICCAAELc_x.jpg:large
[18:52:26] <andypugh> But if you re-melt the scrap then arguably there is no difference between casting then machining, or machining then casting.
[18:52:47] <Skullworks> I'm betting they start with a near net shape investment casting that was poured in a vaccuum.
[18:52:50] <ssi> andypugh: assuming your swarf isn't too fine

[18:56:32] <ssi> that's not
[18:56:49] <ssi> 146.3 nautical miles N
[18:56:52] <ssi> piece of cake :D
[18:57:03] <PetefromTn> well get yer ass up here man LOL
[18:57:11] <PetefromTn> you got maybe twenty minutes./
[18:57:34] <ssi> it'd take an hour and a half in the cherokee, plus an hour for me to get to the airport and get the airplane fueld and ready
[18:57:45] <ssi> and that's assuming it wasn't half disassembled ;)
[18:57:45] <Skullworks> air maps will show any place safe to set down - an inflight emergency...
[18:58:11] <PetefromTn> the one I was talking about is a small community airport and it is off college park road.
[18:59:37] <PetefromTn> Its actually kinda cool. the folks there have BIG garages with hanger doors on their homes.
[18:59:52] <PetefromTn> The runway runs between two cross streets.
[19:00:10] <Skullworks> Like John Travolta's
[19:00:12] <ssi> can you point it out on google maps?
[19:00:27] <PetefromTn> I once went there to maybe buy a used bridgeport from a fellow there and he showed me his plane...

[19:02:11] <ssi> like a PCB pick and place?
[19:02:15] <ssi> I've been wanting one
[19:02:17] <Skullworks> yes
[19:03:01] <PetefromTn> Sorry man it IS Montvale Air Park Road....

[19:03:26] <PetefromTn> I didn't think it was montvale because it is nowhere near Montvale road. I live off Montvale road.
[19:03:39] <ssi> looks like the road is the runway :P
[19:03:46] <ssi> it's a private airpark, I wouldn't go in there
[19:03:54] <PetefromTn> yup sorta is but it is quite wide and long.
[19:04:18] <PetefromTn> The plane he showed me was about the size of yours I think.
[19:04:23] <ssi> Skullworks: I kinda want that
[19:05:35] <ssi> so I need to decide if I want to cut this db hole accurately and have the 7i77's connector peeking out the side of the cabinet
[19:05:43] <ssi> or if I just want to punch a big enough hole to get the cable through, and then silicone it up

[19:05:51] <ssi> the latter would be easier and more coolant-safe
[19:06:17] <ssi> that's where you are?
[19:06:24] <Skullworks> I wished I wasn't so far - They have sold complete running CNC mills for
[19:06:28] <Skullworks> $200
[19:06:29] <PetefromTn> No that is a view of the runway I think.
[19:06:48] <ssi> looks more like your house ;)
[19:07:03] <ssi> nice place
[19:07:05] <ssi> eheheh
[19:07:19] <CaptHindsight> http://www.hgrinc.com/inventory/0113/0113001/20130128110843448_M.JPG easily worth $500
[19:07:24] <PetefromTn> Sory I tried to get to the airport with street view but it did not work
[19:07:30] <ssi> I had found the airport
[19:07:33] <ssi> montvale airpark
[19:07:38] <PetefromTn> yeah thats it....
[19:07:46] <ssi> not sure I'd want to go into tyson either though
[19:07:55] <ssi> class C aren't so bad, but they tend to have feeeeees
[19:07:56] <ssi> and I hate fees
[19:07:59] <PetefromTn> Mcghee Tyson is a large one.
[19:08:08] <PetefromTn> Mostly commercial
[19:08:09] <ssi> "large"
[19:08:20] <ssi> remember I live under the KATL veil :P
[19:08:21] <PetefromTn> yeah well larger for around here
[19:08:33] <PetefromTn> no idea what that is.
[19:08:36] <ssi> atlanta
[19:08:45] <ssi> aka busiest airport in the country
[19:08:52] <PetefromTn> There is an island home airport too in east knoxville
[19:09:06] <ssi> http://www.airnav.com/airport/KDKX

[21:01:04] <CaptHindsight> we had an interesting discussion about Harbor Freight tools last night and their success in the US
[21:01:38] <CaptHindsight> seems lots of people just need a tool for an immediate project and if it works a second or third time it's considered a bonus
[21:01:47] <ssi> yeah, that's how I feel about it
[21:01:57] <CaptHindsight> and it's often lower cost than renting
[21:02:06] <ssi> if I'm gonna pull an engine once every five years
[21:02:16] <ssi> do I want a nice US made crane that costs $1k or more?
[21:02:31] <ssi> or do I want a bunch of chinese tube steel welded together with a cheap leaky bottlejack attached for $170

[22:00:42] <syyl> geckos dont have a very good reputation over here..
[22:00:54] <Tom_itx> how so?
[22:00:58] <ssi> I have had reasonably good luck with G540s for stepper machines,
[22:01:03] <ssi> but it's not my preferred way of doing things
[22:01:10] <ssi> it was a good option when I was starting out
[22:01:38] <syyl> there where a lot of people that had their geckos burning out
[22:01:39] <Skullworks> I'm not thrilled with Gecko servo drives - but I just love the little G251
[22:01:39] <ssi> these days my winning combination is 5i25 -> 7i77 -> AMC servo drives
[22:02:03] <ssi> I'm working on my third machine with that toolchain
[22:02:28] <Skullworks> 7i77 is 10V ?
[22:02:34] <ssi> yeah
[22:02:42] <Skullworks> nice
[22:02:49] <ssi> 6x encoder and 10V
[22:02:52] <ssi> 48 gpio
[22:02:55] <ssi> one extra sserial port
[22:03:00] <ssi> it's a pretty nice setup
[22:03:49] <ssi> and I've had good luck with the AMC drives
[22:03:57] <ssi> there are tons of them out there used for cheap
[22:04:09] <ssi> and aside from one quirk, they work great
[22:04:10] <Skullworks> what is the plan for the G0740
[22:04:20] <ssi> exactly what I just described
[22:04:26] <ssi> 7i77, 3x AMC 30A8T
[22:04:33] <ssi> MCG 60V 200W servos
[22:04:55] <ssi> keling 65v 15A supply
[22:04:58] <Skullworks> head counter weight?
[22:05:07] <ssi> prolly do a gas spring
[22:05:33] <ssi> ballscrews are already in place
[22:05:45] <ssi> I still have to make the ballnut mount for the head, but the table's done
[22:05:51] <Skullworks> direct drive or belt reduction?
[22:05:55] <ssi> belt reduction
[22:06:00] <ssi> they're 5300rpm motors

[22:09:04] <Skullworks> are those 4 brush or just have the brushes @ 90 degrees?
[22:09:54] <ssi> you know, I'm not sure offhand
[22:09:54] <ssi> https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BKM97aHCAAMBFum.jpg:large
[22:09:57] <ssi> I have two types of motor
[22:09:58] <ssi> two of each

[22:10:08] <ssi> I'm using the fat ones for X and Z, and the skinny one for Y
[22:11:07] <Skullworks> The long one is a 2 brush
[22:11:17] <ssi> yeah, definitely
[22:11:21] <ssi> but I dunno about the short one

[22:13:12] <JT-Shop> aye, 8" rotary table and 4 jaw chuck
[22:13:16] <ssi> awesome
[22:13:18] <JT-Shop> and a free hat
[22:13:50] <ssi> the important part
[22:13:50] <JT-Shop> bbl
[22:13:58] <ssi> 8" rotab is a big boy
[22:15:50] <Skullworks> I'm kinda searching for a dead Hurco KM3 - Its built on Kondia Iron from Spain - its a great machine. They come with Servomate SCR amps and Pac Sci 4 brush motors with Litton encoders and tach feedback. Its a cake walk conversion.
[22:16:24] <ssi> hy HNC was a pretty easy conversion
[22:16:31] <Skullworks> Update the amps and now you could have a real monster
[22:16:51] <ssi> my amps? they work fine
[22:17:42] <DJ9DJ> gn8
[22:18:03] -!- DJ9DJ has quit [Quit: bye]
[22:18:54] <Skullworks> no - I was referring to the old SCR amps (Servomate) used in the Hurco - they work OK but are slower reaction - not the best for high speed profiling. But as is the machine rapids at 250 and profiles at 100 IPM
[22:19:45] <ssi> ah
[22:20:46] <Skullworks> But trying to do fine engraving - your limited to about 7-8 IPM or the following error gets out of hand.
[22:21:04] <Skullworks> better amps would fix that.
[22:23:25] <ssi> what amps would you use
[22:26:33] <Skullworks> not really sure as yet - was thinking maybe Jon's Pico amp - if I could run the tach feedback into a Mesa card.
[22:28:02] <Skullworks> my Servo power supply is rated for 90V - but due to a hotter than normal AC line its higher than that.
[22:28:27] <ssi> that's one thing that's bitten me with amc drives
[22:28:32] <ssi> most of them are 80v
[22:28:36] <ssi> they come in two flavors, 80v and 200v
[22:28:37] <Skullworks> I think if I meter a wall recepticle its like 140-144V
[22:28:51] <ssi> that's why I'm running these 60v motors this go round

[22:38:48] <Skullworks1> There was a big press release a few years back on how Hardinge was loosing so much money on the BP line that they were going to finally shut it down.
[22:39:38] <Skullworks1> Wonder if they outsourced the work - just like most other "US" based manufacturing...
