[03:32:22] <tjtr33> my real question is how could Hal data be posted to a server? ( sans linuxcnc , as in "halrun -I -f myhalfile.hal")
[03:32:23] <tjtr33> I am not at all versed in networking
[03:33:09] <tjtr33> my intention would be to have browser based Hal interfaces without NML et al

[04:11:07] <tjtr33> there's always surprises in the source
[04:11:07] <tjtr33> has anyone played with 'halgui.py' ? ( .../yourRip/src/hal/utils/halgui.py )

[04:48:34] <tjtr33> no, halcmd_commands.c reads and writes data to shared mem ( not rtapi )
[04:50:07] <tjtr33> and theres tools to lookup where in shmem the pins are like 'halpr_find_pin_by_name(name)'
[04:51:46] <tjtr33> so would i hack in a msg to a server inside halcmd_commands.c or would i monitor shmem changes and report to a server
[04:51:53] <tjtr33> (or some other thing i hadnt thought of )?

[11:16:45] <Loetmichel> ... that will be the MOST expensive motorcycle bulb EVER... 60 eur for leds and smps, a bit of 7075 aluminium and countless hours of machine time... ;-)
[11:17:25] <archivist> I have started todays long job....2.8 hours for one bevel gear
[11:17:55] <archivist> and restarted it after one axis decided to lose steps
[11:20:17] <Loetmichel> that is the second "billet" i am machining
[11:20:32] <Loetmichel> the first hat some step loss on one axis, also
[11:21:36] <archivist> in my case it went out of the cut so just add more balance weight reset home on that axis restart
[11:22:53] <Loetmichel> lucky you
[11:23:02] <Loetmichel> mine went INTO the cut :-(
[11:30:41] <Loetmichel> archivist: tht was the first try: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=14400
[11:31:19] <archivist> oops

[11:50:56] <archivist> just been and looked, just got to the halfway point at 0 degrees
[11:51:40] <archivist> having to manually drop some oil on the job at the moment
[11:58:25] * Loetmichel is just grinding down a 1/8" TC mill bit to 2mm shaft, so it can dive in 24mm instead of 6mm ;-)
[12:14:59] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=14403 <- that looks fitting... and now: VERY CAREFUL milling ;-)
[12:15:37] <archivist> snap
[12:16:25] <Loetmichel> yes, can happen
[12:16:26] <archivist> bevel is at -11 deg ..... had sammich.... next coffee
[12:23:40] <jthornton> yikes, that is tiny
[12:24:37] <jthornton> anyone want to play with my tapping G code generator?

[14:29:36] <archivist> 40 degree cutter with straight sides
[14:30:12] <archivist> attempting the gleason method in gcode

[14:32:46] <archivist> rolling a cone over the cutter

[15:47:24] <kwallace> "some customer wants an odd ratio pair of bevel gears" He must be 'some' customer to be able to afford to pay a fair price.
[15:47:50] <archivist> or me cheap enough to have a go
[15:50:54] <archivist> if I can get the technique right...profit because I can do any pair
[15:52:04] * Tom_itx gives archivist a 'gear maker' shingle to hang
[15:52:40] <Tom_itx> i've got all but a rotary head to try it
[15:53:02] <Tom_itx> i'm not sure what these cutters are for though
[15:53:13] <Tom_itx> i know some are slitting saws but a couple have profiles on them
[15:55:10] <archivist> just need the right angles for generation though, no need for fancy profiles
[15:56:22] <kwallace> It seems to me that one needs a cutter that can cut any rack profile, but also varies on-the-fly.
[15:57:08] -!- psha [psha!~psha@] has joined #linuxcnc
[15:57:35] <archivist> that is why on the gleason there are two cutters on taper paths
[15:58:13] <archivist> which could be one cutter and a rotation of the blank I think
[15:59:52] <kwallace> This seems like a good application for a wire EDM.
[16:01:10] <archivist> could be yes
[16:02:24] <archivist> kwallace, dunno if you saw me paste this in the other day http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=15anXJ1y3PI double taper planer

[17:44:24] <jesseg> LOL yeah. And the higher the cost of a mistake, the better one learns. Problem is, my lathe is a cheapo chinese Shop Master or whatever. The lathe spindle startup is so slow that the key just falls out when it turns to point down, and so far hasn't hurt anything. Same with mill spindle. (It's combo unit.)
[17:44:55] <Loetmichel> archivist: for size comparsion: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=14058

[17:45:23] <PetefromTn> LOL I made that mistake once with my 12x36, it took me about five minutes to remove the chuck key from my garage door.... I learned something there but that does not mean I won't do it again..

[17:46:23] <PetefromTn> OOoh that is a cute little one.
[17:49:22] <jesseg> archivist, I've thought about building a "Holder" for my two chuck keys, with a microswitch for each key. If all the keys aren't in the holder, it wouldn't start. But I haven't done it yet.

[17:52:06] <kwallace> For me, I was trained from the start to never ever leave a key in a chuck, ever.
[17:54:22] <jesseg> kwallace, how long have you been running the lathe at least twice a week, and has it ever happened? :P
[17:57:01] <jesseg> I think I've done the mill key once and the lathe key twice in about 10 years. But I only get a chance to do it around once a month.
[17:57:13] <jesseg> in any case I'm sure you're a better man than I
[17:59:14] <Loetmichel> kwallace: in my first appreniceship the only girl in class did the trick to forget a springloaded key in the chuck... machine started with 2400 rpm... key-> door of the master craftsman... on eye level...

[18:14:18] <Loetmichel> kwallace: remember: apprenticeship
[18:14:44] <Loetmichel> in a "school" for learning craftsman
[18:16:13] <Loetmichel> and we were "information technology electronicans", who had 2 weeks "quick intro" fot the lathe and 2 weeks "mill" and 2 weeks "welding"
[18:16:43] <Loetmichel> so the spring loaded keys were a good idea :-)
[18:22:00] <jesseg> kwallace, My paternal grandfather was actually a very fine machinist. Unfortunately he died of cancer before I was born, so I never got to meet him.
[18:22:44] <jesseg> But yes, I'm just learning it as a hobby. I really truly enjoy it. Having youtube does help :P
[18:23:07] <jesseg> Well gotta run. Bye
[18:23:11] <kwallace> Apprenticeships were gone by the time I was a kid, but I had a co-worker that worked for Zeiss during WWII and had plenty of interesting stories.
[18:23:24] <kwallace> Bye.
[18:24:49] <jesseg> I don't know how good of an apprentice I would have made.. I tend toward approaching issues logically based on current facts and conditions... And a lot of the apprenticeship type industries may have a bit of a "We've always done it this way" mentality.. Even when "This way" may factually not be the best.. ha ha. I make a much better hobiest.
[18:30:03] <Loetmichel> in germany its not the way the americans do it
[18:30:14] <Loetmichel> we have a "school" for craftsman
[18:30:32] <Loetmichel> 3-4 years learning

[18:39:07] <andypugh> I leave the chuck key in my lathe. Mainly as a rebellion :-)
[18:39:37] <AR_> ;p;
[18:39:40] <AR_> lol
[18:39:51] <andypugh> Because it is _my_ lathe and I know that LinuxCNC is interlocked on the chuck guard which won't close with the chuck in.
[18:40:42] <andypugh> I won't let the students get away with it in the Motor Club with the lathe there though, where that isn't true.
[18:45:00] <archivist> the most important step is that last look at the machine before you press the firing button, is everything set, tight, loose crap moved
[18:45:17] <kwallace> I had a very brief encounter with teaching shop. It was like pulling teeth, to get kids to use safety glasses. I decided, it wasn't worth the effort. Too bad... somebody might have learned something.
[18:45:46] <Loetmichel> http://de.webfail.com/4d3e0d65b87 <- harhar, thats a cup i HAVE to get... thats SO me in the morning :-)
[18:45:56] <AR_> you should have just let them get chips in their eyes
[18:46:27] <AR_> Loetmichel, that's me if it's a huge cup
[18:46:33] <AR_> coffee barely helps me anymore
[18:46:39] <andypugh> I never wear safety glasses. I don't claim that is good or sensible, but it is the case.
[18:46:52] <Loetmichel> andypugh: me too
[18:46:53] <AR_> i'll admit i dont at home
[18:46:54] <AR_> lol
[18:47:35] <AR_> unless i'm holding a dremel cutoff wheel right up at my face or grinding something that i need to watch closely
[18:47:39] <archivist> safety glasses are often too scratched/misty to use the machine safely
[18:47:40] <andypugh> I think I was dissuaded by them generally being approximately opaque. Scratchproof lenses have made that less of a problem now.
[18:47:51] <kwallace> I was amazed me how often our local schools get sued.
[18:49:00] <andypugh> I recall when they made scratch-resistant motorcycle helmet visors compulsory in the UK. There was an outcry as overnight the price of visors tripled. Then we relaised that they now lasted 5 years not 5 weeks...

[18:50:59] <kwallace> ... especially since schools don't teach shop, science and very little phys ed.
[18:51:28] <Loetmichel> ... he DID hel me extinguishing the trashcan with alcohol soaked rugs beneath the workbench afterwards, though ;-)
[18:51:32] <Loetmichel> help
[18:53:59] <archivist> Loetmichel, similar but I took the picture of the boss http://www.collection.archivist.info/showresult.php?prog=1&srcprog=searchv13.php&srcdata=title&Type=PD&Accn_no=4176&subject=13455
[18:54:31] <archivist> he has just been buffing brass for a few hours
[18:54:49] <Loetmichel> looks like me on the job :-)
[18:55:40] <andypugh> Ah, well, the buffers in Sheffield used to wrap themselves in brown paper for just that reason.
[18:55:51] <archivist> he thought it was such a nasty job he could not make workers do it :)
[18:56:35] <jdh> any suggestions for straightening a ballscrew? 950mm long, .65mm bow in it.
[18:57:02] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=13525
[18:57:17] <archivist> just spring it into the job, probably will run ok
[18:57:20] <Loetmichel> ... grinding ferrite plates to size ;-)
[18:57:26] <andypugh> You might find a local motorcycle shop is able to do it. Straightening forks used to be a common repair.
[18:57:46] <andypugh> Is that 0.65mm or 0.65" ?
[18:58:04] <jdh> mm. If it were inch, I'd just toss it.
[18:58:47] <archivist> that is well in springing distance but maybe too much for high rpm
[18:59:26] <jdh> I made some temp mounts for it. It bounces the carriage around a bit. Could be the carriage adjustment is just bad too though.
[18:59:29] <archivist> I think my southbend screw is worse than that
[18:59:58] <Loetmichel> jdh: i am a bit rough with that stuff
[19:00:25] <archivist> the carriage should not be bounce able
[19:00:25] <andypugh> In theory you set it up on two V blocks under a press with a dial indicator. Then you (somehow) work out how far apart the V-blocks need to be to do the job, and press the middle down until the DTI reads right, then enough further to give it a set. And repeat.
[19:00:28] <Loetmichel> i would just get a big bench vise and 3 short prisms out of plastic
[19:00:35] <Loetmichel> and press it into shape
[19:01:24] <jdh> I've been trying the v-block thing. I've moved it 10x the distance and it just comes back to the same spot
[19:01:32] <Loetmichel> or moint it at the end points and use a crowbar with some rugs warapped around to pry it in shape
[19:01:38] <Loetmichel> mount
[19:02:35] <Loetmichel> so you didnt moved far enough above the elastic distance
[19:03:39] <jdh> yeah, it seems to be pretty resilient. I assume it was bent in shipping, but I can't get it to bend.

[19:04:00] <ReadError> cant imagine how many times i would have had to clean the filter
[19:04:15] <archivist> if it is properly hardened and tempered it may break before it bends straight
[19:05:10] <Loetmichel> archivist: ballscrews are normally only hardened on the outside
[19:05:36] <Loetmichel> about 1mm in the core is soft
[19:05:40] <jdh> it's a cheap chinese screw. Doubt they did any more than minimum
[19:05:42] <archivist> so bending will crack the surface

[19:07:28] <archivist> that is what I think too, built in bend from the hardening process
[19:08:03] -!- thomaslindstr_m has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[19:09:58] <jdh> could be. The last 3 I got from him were straight
[19:10:53] <jdh> nifty video. Don't have that hardware though.
[19:11:28] <jdh> we have a tube straightening machine at work. It twists the tube and it comes out straight.
[19:11:37] <andypugh> You can improvise. Possibly using a jack and a door frame.
[19:11:40] <archivist> the bend itself should be some clue to how it got there
[19:12:20] <jdh> it has a bow about 75% of the length, then another one about 45 degrees off near one end.
[19:12:36] <archivist> there is also stretching as a straightening technique
[19:13:26] <jdh> I'll go ahead and make the mount out of 0.5" 6061 and see how it springs.
[19:13:33] <archivist> may have to fiddle the scale factor after that :)
