[00:26:29] <Aero-Tec> anyone got ideas on how to zero a diamond shaped tool that is pointing straight?
[00:27:05] <Aero-Tec> not sure how to zero the Z
[00:27:16] <Aero-Tec> X is no problem
[00:27:50] <NickParker> what do you mean by zero? Get it on the surface of the material?
[00:27:54] <Aero-Tec> working on zeroing all my tooling
[00:28:12] <NickParker> Oh nvm i get it
[00:28:12] <Aero-Tec> I am setting up the offsets
[00:28:25] <Aero-Tec> it is a lathe
[00:29:08] <toastydeath> Aero-Tec, do you have a plunge bar
[00:29:11] <toastydeath> like a cutoff tool
[00:29:30] <Aero-Tec> the diamond point is tapered on both sides
[00:29:44] <toastydeath> ironically does not answer the question
[00:29:46] <Aero-Tec> I have a cutt off tool yes
[00:29:51] <Aero-Tec> several of them
[00:30:00] -!- SpeicusX [SpeicusX!SpeicusX@198-91-235-135.cpe.distributel.net] has joined #linuxcnc
[00:30:01] <toastydeath> okay, so what you're going to do is do a few plunge cuts
[00:30:27] <Aero-Tec> with the cut off?
[00:30:42] <toastydeath> get like a half inch wide of material plunged out
[00:30:44] <toastydeath> yes
[00:30:47] <toastydeath> not cut off, but plunged out
[00:30:52] <toastydeath> so you have sharp corners
[00:31:04] <Aero-Tec> do I leave space between the plunge cuts?
[00:31:08] <toastydeath> no
[00:31:15] <toastydeath> you are cutting a 1/2" wide channel with sharp corners
[00:31:36] <toastydeath> use your calipers and find the center of this channel
[00:31:55] <toastydeath> in relation to the bar, which you face off at zero
[00:32:06] <toastydeath> so now you know exactly where the center of this channel is
[00:32:40] <toastydeath> now you bring your diamond tool in, and you touch the sides of the tool (the tapered sides) to the corners of that channel
[00:32:42] <Aero-Tec> ok and zero on the point
[00:32:43] <toastydeath> note the locations on the readout
[00:32:58] <toastydeath> now find the center of the two touchoff points
[00:33:08] <toastydeath> jog the tool to that location, and trigger the tool touch
[00:33:18] <Aero-Tec> cool
[00:33:26] <Aero-Tec> thanks, good idea
[00:33:49] <toastydeath> it's a practice that's used a LOT
[00:33:59] <toastydeath> for all kinds of weird shit, like finding the centerline of holes VERY accurately

[01:25:04] <nspiel> i am having problems wiring my robot arm
[01:26:08] <andypugh> Working out what wire is what, or something else?
[01:29:30] <nspiel> sort of yes
[01:29:41] <nspiel> so i know all 8 or so pins coming out the motor
[01:29:47] <nspiel> for encoder power ground signals etc
[01:30:28] <nspiel> but those female headers go from the motor into breakout boards in the robot and then end up in a 50 pin ribbon cable out the back of the robot composed of all the signals grounds etc
[01:30:41] <nspiel> im trying to find which wires are which on the 50 pin flat ribbon
[01:31:59] <andypugh> You can't buzz them through with a multimeter?
[01:32:06] <nspiel> thats what ive been doing
[01:32:15] <nspiel> ive gotten most of them that way but i ran into a problem
[01:32:29] <nspiel> so there is ground and power on the motor female pin
[01:32:50] <nspiel> i was able to get feedback with this ground and power as well as signal a and b with an arduino plugged into the encoder of the motor
[01:33:18] <nspiel> but when i buzzed them through to trace the ground and power back to the 50 pin flat ribbon they buzz out the same wires on the bottom
[01:33:41] <nspiel> even if i reverse the leads of the multimeter if it were to be some diode issue
[01:33:46] <RyanS> What sort of robot arm? Industrial, scratch build?
[01:34:29] <nspiel> industrial scara robot arm
[01:34:46] <RyanS> cool
[01:35:08] <andypugh> It's not unlikely that half the wires on the ribbon are grounds.
[01:35:32] <nspiel> thats what i was thinking but the +5v also buzzes the same output wires as the ground
[01:35:47] <nspiel> but when i buzz the 5v and ground on the breakout board they are not connected
[01:37:32] <andypugh> Another general thing to bear in mind, normally associated with buying a classic motorcycle in a a number of crates "Nobody ever dismantles a working motorcycle". Don't assume that the machine was thrown out and sold to you because it worked perfectly.
[01:37:32] -!- SpeicusX [SpeicusX!SpeicusX@198-91-235-135.cpe.distributel.net] has joined #linuxcnc
[01:38:20] <nspiel> supposedly it was working. the guy gave it to me because he had didnt have space for it. everything so far that i have unwired and rewired this guy has done right so far
[01:40:04] <andypugh> Is this with the wires disconnected at both ends, or with them still connected to "stuff"?
[01:40:32] <nspiel> disconnected at both ends
[01:40:51] <nspiel> no motor connection to the breakout just probing the pins and with nothing attached to flat ribbon
[01:41:28] <andypugh> And you can see that the wires all the way through and there is no evidence of anything in the middle?
[01:41:44] <nspiel> pretty much yes
[01:41:55] <nspiel> the wires go all he way through for motor power
[01:41:58] <nspiel> i already wired that part
[01:44:07] <archivist> I expect multiple grounds in a ribbon, it helps reduce cross talk in the cable
[01:44:51] <nspiel> that is what i thought as well. but when i probe it i get +5v on about half of the ribbon
[01:45:24] <archivist> I have seen multiple power too
[01:46:23] -!- false has quit [Ping timeout: 245 seconds]
[01:46:54] <archivist> but would expect a lower qty power than ground wires
[01:50:00] <nspiel> yep
[01:50:00] <archivist> or equal number
[01:50:18] <nspiel> something weird is going on
[01:50:33] <nspiel> the outputs of power and ground go to the same wires
[01:50:48] <nspiel> but when i probe across them on the breakout board they are not connected
[01:51:13] <andypugh> It's very easy to miss-assemble a ribbon connector.
[01:51:51] <archivist> or easy to fool one self if something is plugged in the other end
[01:52:16] <andypugh> So I can imagine that you might have a connector contact that shorts a wire, but then it would also have to contact both of them.
[01:53:05] <archivist> are the encoders connected during your testing the connections
[01:53:10] <nspiel> no
[01:55:34] <nspiel> another option that will get it working but isnt great is to just tap the female headers by making my own custom male headers that will go to the mesa boards
[02:01:30] <Aero-Tec> ok things are going well, but now need to zero my drilling tool holder
[02:01:41] <Aero-Tec> anyone got some ideas?
[02:07:26] <nspiel> does anyone have any other ideas
[02:09:27] -!- nikola_ has quit [Ping timeout: 250 seconds]
[02:10:52] <Aero-Tec> I see your working on a robot arm
[02:11:01] <nspiel> yep
[02:11:03] <Aero-Tec> I would like to make a few of them
[02:11:09] <Aero-Tec> do you have any pix?
[02:11:18] <nspiel> nope
[02:11:29] <nspiel> sry
[02:11:36] <Aero-Tec> to bad, would love to see it
[02:11:45] <Aero-Tec> diy?
[02:12:16] <nspiel> its a repurposed industrial one that was pretty torn apart. im piecing it back/ restoring it and making it cnc
[02:12:23] <nspiel> i would eventually like to make it a cnc edm
[02:12:43] <Aero-Tec> now your talking
[02:12:57] <Aero-Tec> but will it be accurate enough?
[02:13:24] <Aero-Tec> arms are not known for accuracy
[02:13:28] <nspiel> accuracy on the arm is .015mm
[02:13:37] <spack> lol
[02:13:44] <spack> that seems unrealistic
[02:13:55] <Aero-Tec> depending on the arm and how new it is
[02:14:02] <spack> is it an awesome robot?
[02:14:13] <Aero-Tec> I was tempted to say the same
[02:14:29] <nspiel> http://global.epson.com/company/corporate_history/milestone_products/15_ssrh.html
[02:14:39] <Aero-Tec> that is some great specs
[02:14:51] <spack> also doesn't really look like an "arm" per se
[02:14:53] <nspiel> are you being serious or just kidding
[02:15:58] <spack> serious
[02:16:11] <nspiel> not you- aero-tec
[02:16:17] <spack> oh
[02:16:22] <nspiel> but yeah it doesnt really look much like an arm
[02:16:26] <nspiel> but it is a scara
[02:16:31] <spack> i can see that thing being pretty accurate
[02:16:34] <nspiel> which technically is a type of robot arm
[02:16:38] <spack> it's small and the links are short
[02:16:48] <spack> not many articulations, etc
[02:17:03] <spack> not like this thing
[02:17:04] <spack> http://thetechnicgear.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/six-axis-robot-arm.jpeg
[02:17:07] <spack> :)
[02:17:22] <nspiel> lol those are awesome
[02:17:26] <Aero-Tec> now that I see it I can see how they get that
[02:18:17] <nspiel> yeah if only i could wire it haha
[02:20:24] <Aero-Tec> what wires are you stuck on?
[02:20:49] <Aero-Tec> BTW any help with zeroing a drill tool holder?
[02:21:15] <nspiel> there is a 50 pin flat ribbon with all the signals in it coming out the back
[02:22:03] <Aero-Tec> you made sure pin 1 is correct?
[02:22:44] <Aero-Tec> one can plug then if the wrong way
[02:23:01] <Aero-Tec> if they do not have the tad to stop that
[02:23:19] <nspiel> i dont know which signals are where in the 50 pin flat ribbon
[02:23:28] <nspiel> i know which signals are which coming out of the encoders
[02:23:32] <nspiel> but there are break otu boards
[02:23:43] <nspiel> so i have been continuity probing the boards and the flat cable
[02:23:56] -!- andypugh has quit [Quit: andypugh]
[02:24:00] <nspiel> but +5v and ground for encoders lead to output the same pins on the ribbon cable
[02:24:05] <Aero-Tec> also did you make sure the ribbon is the right one for the machine?
[02:24:14] <nspiel> yes it is
[02:24:40] <nspiel> it has a special connector into the arm and the ribbon fits it perfectly
[02:25:53] <archivist> I would be looking inside
[02:26:01] <Aero-Tec> sound like there is some thing amiss
[02:26:10] <Aero-Tec> some thing shorted maybe?
[02:26:40] <archivist> likely there is something in between
[02:26:41] <Aero-Tec> some pix would help some
[02:26:44] <nspiel> yeah i tihkn something is weird
[02:26:49] <nspiel> ok i will take some pics
[02:26:56] <nspiel> brb
[02:27:13] <Aero-Tec> back to zeroing a drill tool holder in a lathe
[02:27:17] <Aero-Tec> any help?
[02:27:19] <archivist> is there a board internally with signal buffers
[02:34:15] <nspiel> http://imgur.com/a/Jp92o
[02:34:52] <archivist> also "connected together" by an active internal circuit or filter would also mean > 0 ohms between 0 and 5v, use a better DVM
[02:35:40] <nspiel> hmm i think the one i have is pretty goodf
[02:36:54] <nspiel> http://www.extech.com/instruments/product.asp?catid=49&prodid=297
[02:37:22] <archivist> what is the resistance 0v-5v (both directions)
[02:37:31] <nspiel> .6ohm
[02:39:13] <archivist> if the dvm is good enough you can use it to trace the short
[02:40:43] <archivist> prod on all 5v pins/tracks looking for lower resistance
[02:41:50] -!- izanagisan has quit [Ping timeout: 256 seconds]
[02:42:58] <nspiel> u mean on the 5v at the board and on all the outputs

[02:52:24] <nspiel> any other ideas aero-tec
[02:52:36] <archivist> yes, but not sure of that dvms abilities as the lowest range is 200 ohms
[02:52:47] <Aero-Tec> what does the meter say when you short the probes together?
[02:53:09] <archivist> .6 for a guess
[02:53:31] <Aero-Tec> for leads shorted together that is very high
[02:54:02] <archivist> the spec sheet claims a micro ohm yet the display does not have the resolution
[02:54:34] <nspiel> it varies when you short the probe together
[02:55:32] <Aero-Tec> archivist, I was just looking at that and thinking the same thing
[02:55:34] <nspiel> .2 ohms when shorted together
[02:55:54] <archivist> I imagine you have the typical shiny probes, the surface contact is not good
[02:56:32] <archivist> I think you only have .1 ohm resolution
[02:56:38] <Aero-Tec> that sounds better, but still no micro ohm resolution
[02:56:55] <Aero-Tec> looks like
[02:57:05] <nspiel> yeah i have the shiny probes
[02:57:09] <Aero-Tec> and trouble shooting with that is limited
[02:57:21] <nspiel> but i have been using gator clips with them also
[02:57:29] <archivist> just as bad
[02:57:40] <nspiel> ya
[02:58:04] <Aero-Tec> one can track down shorts if the meters is sensitive enough, your is not that great
[02:58:09] <archivist> low resistance measurement is not well served by low cost meters
[02:58:31] <Aero-Tec> lol
[02:58:33] <Aero-Tec> no
[02:58:42] <Aero-Tec> so work with that we have
[02:59:05] <Aero-Tec> so where are you measuring from?
[02:59:08] <archivist> .1 resolution should be ok to get close to the short
[02:59:24] <Aero-Tec> end of cable or some where else?
[02:59:35] <nspiel> im measing from the connector in the first pic
[02:59:51] -!- Cylly [Cylly!cylly@p54B13B51.dip0.t-ipconnect.de] has joined #linuxcnc
[02:59:58] <nspiel> do u see the male header with 9 pins on the right
[03:00:11] <nspiel> and also measuring from the flat cable
[03:00:20] <archivist> actually all those loose ends on one of the pics, human error and two ends touching ?
[03:00:32] <nspiel> possible
[03:00:44] <nspiel> i just spread them out more thinking that may be it
[03:00:56] <archivist> measure in the box with your cable unplugged
[03:01:11] <nspiel> oh good idea!
[03:01:30] <archivist> if you did the crimp....
[03:02:02] -!- Loetmichel has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[03:02:18] <Aero-Tec> I was going to say the same thing, unplug cable
[03:02:26] <archivist> I have also seen the cut end at the connector have shorts, (blunt scissors)
[03:02:27] <nspiel> ok i will try that now
[03:02:42] <nspiel> ahh ok ill check that too
[03:04:47] <Aero-Tec> also do some measurements using the diode setting of the meter
[03:05:05] <Aero-Tec> junctions can play trick with meters
[03:05:23] <nspiel> thats the same setting on the dvm as the continuity check
[03:05:26] <nspiel> right?
[03:05:33] <nspiel> i did most measurements with that
[03:05:35] <Aero-Tec> more so if a cap is in circuit
[03:06:22] <archivist> one has to wait for the capacitors to charge
[03:07:25] <Aero-Tec> yes the continuity and diode are the same setting
[03:08:04] <Aero-Tec> maybe the continuity setting would give better res for ohms
[03:08:51] <Aero-Tec> so how are the readings?
[03:09:27] <archivist> typing while holding leads is impossible
[03:10:45] <Aero-Tec> for my centering problem I used a drill chuck Moise taper adapter with no chuck on it, wanted the centering hole for that it was made
[03:11:36] <archivist> that sentence needs rephrasing
[03:12:27] <Aero-Tec> stuck a mill centering/edge finder point in the adapter hole and felt for alignment of edge finder
[03:14:10] <Aero-Tec> not the best option but it did sort of work
[03:14:11] <archivist> for low restance measurements, I like a dvm which has a null option to remove the lead resistance
[03:14:28] <Aero-Tec> they are nice

[04:41:37] <tjtr33> beware of the shield ( shroud on the ribbon ) sometimes cnxd to gnd, sometimes to separate shield
[04:42:49] <tjtr33> ( listens to G Thorogood's HoodoUluv really loud )
[04:47:46] <tjtr33> the edm generator ctl is simple in hal. the motion is more difficult.
[04:48:04] <tjtr33> cutting to a depth and then changing power settings is ok too
[04:48:12] <tjtr33> but orbiting is a bit tricky
[04:48:16] <nspiel> really? tjtr33 i am super interested in talking to you more about thisw
[04:48:23] <nspiel> i pretty much know nothing but im itching to learn
[04:49:23] <tjtr33> i use John Kasunich's hal demo with sin & cos fed to x & y to orbit while Z sinks ( still very very beta )
[04:49:45] <tjtr33> here it is working http://videobin.org/+6ty/8bc.html
[04:50:45] <tjtr33> it ping pongs between two soft limits, allows a jump cycle for flushing, other stuff
[04:50:56] <tjtr33> what are you doing for generator?
[04:51:12] <tjtr33> hey you're chicago right?
[04:51:45] <nspiel> nope sorry
[04:51:53] <tjtr33> oh someone else, np
[04:51:53] <nspiel> also im pretty clueless about most of this stuff
[04:52:53] <tjtr33> theres a ton of super tech stuff, but it boils down to an rc servo like operation, the tool tip stay a volatge based distance from the work
[04:52:55] <nspiel> thats pretty awesome
[04:53:22] <tjtr33> it smokes! ( 63 amp module in dead short )
[04:53:34] <nspiel> rc servo as in a similar control output from mesa boards? or how do u control it?
[04:54:47] -!- AR_ has quit [Ping timeout: 260 seconds]
[04:54:57] <tjtr33> no not mesa specific. i use a window comparator with 2 thresholds. above hiVal is 'move down', below loVal is "moveAway", in between is 'dont move'
[04:55:54] <tjtr33> those 2 data feed a change in position to the axis. the axis position is controlled by Hal, not a pid loop nor linuxcnc.
[04:56:24] <tjtr33> either the tool fails and sits at start position for a time, or
[04:57:05] <tjtr33> the tool sits steady at a final position for a time ( sparks out ) and hands control back to the linuxcnc gcode
[04:57:48] <tjtr33> ( er maybe i do use a pid loop, been a lot of stuff happening since january )

[05:09:31] <nspiel> not really sure where to start
[05:09:35] <nspiel> i got my robot arm for free
[05:09:43] <nspiel> so im basically getting it up and runing now
[05:09:45] <nspiel> as a cnc
[05:09:57] <nspiel> then hopefully to make it an edm after that
[05:11:28] <Chemeleon> sweet - I'd looked into robo arms before building my gantry router, but couldnt find anything reasonably priced
[05:11:31] <Chemeleon> how'd you swing a free one?
[05:11:41] <tjtr33> well, there's Ben ????'s book ( single axis sinker ) and plans for a sinker available. google 'garden of edm' and 'kmaxon edm'
[05:12:18] <tjtr33> the diy generators are crap cap discharge ( i use a fet system with programmable on & off times )
[05:12:48] <tjtr33> and the diy servos are simplistic ( so is mine ) but seem effective in practice
[05:15:07] <tjtr33> ben fleming iirc http://homebuiltedm.tripod.com/
[05:17:30] <nspiel> from a lab cleanout
[05:18:32] <Chemeleon> nice deal
[05:19:16] <Chemeleon> I've gotten some good buys at auctions due to all the furniture companies that've closed up around here, but nothing that can compete with a free roboarm :)
[05:20:05] <nspiel> and also got the computer to run it for free
[05:20:11] <nspiel> and the drivers
[05:20:16] <nspiel> and power supplies
[05:20:33] <nspiel> the computer is a dual core intel with integrated parallel and 4 gigs of ram
[05:20:40] <nspiel> super low latency
[05:25:11] <tjtr33> please post the latency test results and the board info on the wiki. we all need resources for lo latency hdwr.
[05:28:06] <nspiel> what do u mean by board info on the wiki?
[05:29:39] <tjtr33> the identifier of the mobo pcb, the cpu info, clock speed, bus speed, whatever would let a reader buy the same thing and get the same result
[05:31:07] <nspiel> oh ok
[05:33:10] <tjtr33> its not easy to find good hdwr. thus the recent efforts looking at dividing work across a pc and a dedicated tiny computer ( BBB et al )
[05:33:30] <tjtr33> so you can help a lot of people by posting info on good hdwr
[05:33:57] <nspiel> i have two lcnc computers the one im talking about is significantly better than the other

[13:55:00] <Aero-Tec> looking for some advice, best way to zero the drill tool holder
[13:57:07] <Aero-Tec> what I have done is us a pointed mill center/edge finder and a moires taper chuck adapter with a center drill hole they used to make it
[13:58:38] <Aero-Tec> stuck finder in spindle and adapter in tool holder and felt for alignment
[13:59:04] <Aero-Tec> did not turn on spindle
[13:59:34] <Aero-Tec> needed to line up both up and down and in and out
[14:00:18] <Aero-Tec> so mt guess is that it is close, but not 100% bang on
[14:03:32] <Aero-Tec> only other thing I can think of right now is to use the finder with it spinning in chuck and run it like it was in a mill and center holder with out a adapter in the holder
[14:05:40] <Aero-Tec> would like a better way to set the holder hight, the finder in the spindle trick will not work for checking and setting holder hight
[14:07:22] <Aero-Tec> a camera for doing alignment on a mill would be cool
[14:07:32] -!- izanagisan has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[14:07:41] <Aero-Tec> how accurate can that be?
[14:08:48] <Aero-Tec> I know some guys use a camera to find the edge of work on a mill, how accurate and well does that work?
[14:08:59] <archivist> or a switch http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bg8b4OyRZXk
[14:09:00] <Tecan> (Bg8b4OyRZXk) "EMC2 Manual toolchange with length probe" by "Michael Haberler" is "Tech" - Length: 0:00:39
[14:10:55] <Aero-Tec> that is tool length
[14:11:37] <Aero-Tec> I am working on a lathe and need to set tool holder hight and zero the x
[14:12:52] <Aero-Tec> if tool hight was cnc controlled I could easily center the tool holder just with a edge finder
[14:12:58] <archivist> height is a mechanical problem
[14:13:30] <Aero-Tec> lol there in lyes the problem
[14:13:52] <Aero-Tec> how to center the hight
[14:14:12] <Aero-Tec> I used a dial gage to set all the other cutters
[14:15:01] <archivist> you know the center height, you know half the diameter of the drill
[14:16:13] <archivist> hint digital caliper and its zero function
[14:16:24] <Aero-Tec> half the diameter of the drill does not get you center height, or am I missing something?
[14:16:43] <Aero-Tec> how does that help?
[14:17:14] <archivist> maffs, add the two numbers I first thought of
[14:19:04] <archivist> set caliper to center, zero it, measure drill in chuck to ways, it should read half the drill dia
[14:22:03] <Aero-Tec> how do you set caliper to center? then how would you measure drill chuck 2 ways?
[14:22:14] <Aero-Tec> you have completely lost me
[14:22:26] <Aero-Tec> and what is maffs?
[14:22:27] <archivist> dont make me draw it!
[14:22:33] <Aero-Tec> lol
[14:23:15] <Aero-Tec> guess I will have to get some coffee in me so I can keep up to you
[14:23:23] <archivist> what is the center height of your lathe...the number
[14:24:06] steves_logging is now known as steve_stallings
[14:25:06] <Aero-Tec> I have no clue, would depend on what part of the lathe you measured from, and seeing as the center if the lathe bed is hollow there is no center part to measure from to measure center of tool holder
[14:25:32] <archivist> from the same reference you used a dti
[14:26:24] <Aero-Tec> dti?
[14:26:29] <archivist> the absolute number does not actually matter, just need a reference you can use
[14:27:26] <archivist> dial test indicator
[14:27:26] <Aero-Tec> I have a hight gage that I use on the mill
[14:28:05] <archivist> how do you set the turning tools
[14:28:25] <Aero-Tec> I used that on the top of the carriage and top of stock in chuck
[14:28:54] -!- sumpfralle1 has quit [Ping timeout: 264 seconds]
[14:29:02] <archivist> you want the middl of the stock for tool height
[14:29:14] <Aero-Tec> dial gage, used like a hight gage measure top of stock and then tool point
[14:29:24] <archivist> and that is half the dia....
[14:30:12] <archivist> for this you will not be fed a fish
[14:30:39] <Aero-Tec> tool hight is not as critical +- 10 thou is in range
[14:30:41] <Aero-Tec> lol
[14:31:05] <archivist> sure it is as critical for good work
[14:31:19] <Aero-Tec> I was wanting as perfect alignment as possible
[14:31:25] <archivist> 20 thou pip is huge
[14:31:42] <Aero-Tec> for lathe tool hight?
[14:31:47] <archivist> yes
[14:32:11] <archivist> I turn stuff smaller than that
[14:32:26] <Aero-Tec> some say run at center, some say run low of center and yet some others say run high of center
[14:32:43] <Aero-Tec> to help stop chatter
[14:32:53] <archivist> all depends on the work, and how it springs
[14:33:06] <Aero-Tec> you turn things smaller then 10 thou?
[14:33:42] <archivist> but back to basics you need to learn what your basic exact center height from some reference is
[14:33:55] <archivist> watch parts
[14:34:23] <archivist> clock pivots
[14:34:28] <Aero-Tec> so you not using carbide cutters
[14:34:44] <archivist> hss for that
[14:34:54] <Aero-Tec> that was my guess
[14:35:00] <archivist> I use carbide on the bigger machine
[14:35:28] <Aero-Tec> so you have a cnc watch lathe?
[14:35:41] <Aero-Tec> or is that one hand crank
[14:35:48] <archivist> I still hate pips, you do not want to be wasting time cleaning the pips of as a second op
[14:36:39] <archivist> hand, or even with a graver and rest
[14:37:46] <Aero-Tec> I have it very close to center for the other tools
[14:38:19] <Aero-Tec> tried to get dial gage ball right on the tip of tool
[14:39:13] <archivist> many make a plate to sit across the ways to measure from
[14:39:46] <Aero-Tec> with out some sort of small camera to get right in that tight spot I was not 100% sure the ball was setting properly on the tip
[14:40:45] <archivist> caliper has a right angle therefore gets that right
[14:40:53] <Aero-Tec> my hight gage would be better choice but could not get into where it needed to
[14:41:51] <archivist> there is a built in height gauge in digital calipers
[14:42:56] <Aero-Tec> how would you use a digital caliper on a lathe for setting height?
[14:43:47] <archivist> not drawing it...grrr
[14:44:09] <Aero-Tec> not sure if something would set flat on my lathe bed
[14:44:19] <archivist> not even googling it either
[14:44:25] <Aero-Tec> will have to check
[14:45:13] <archivist> there will be a gazillion sites out there with the needed diagrams
[14:45:25] <Aero-Tec> I know how to use digital calipers
[14:45:57] <Aero-Tec> I have tried to use google for this
[14:46:02] <Aero-Tec> no help
[14:46:12] <Aero-Tec> must be searching the wrong thing
[14:46:34] <Aero-Tec> any suggestion on searching
[14:48:08] <Aero-Tec> searching "cnc lathe zero drilling tool" does nothing useful
[14:49:19] <Aero-Tec> to use a digital caliper on a lathe you would need some thing to measure to
[14:51:23] <archivist> another tool is a center finding dial indicator
[14:51:30] <Aero-Tec> there is no center part of the lathe, not sure if having something on the bed would be flat, will have to check and see how flat something would sit on the lathe ways will be
[14:52:17] <Aero-Tec> that would be nice, or maybe a wobble tool, but I have nether of them
[14:52:35] <archivist> you pit the diacator or similar in the morse of the spindle and indicate the drill shaft
[14:52:40] <archivist> put

[15:13:28] <jthornton> yes, I don't see how to do that on the Samson lathe with conventional ways
[15:13:58] <archivist> others either make a bridge across the gap to work off or one that can work from a distance or off the carriage
[15:14:46] <jthornton> lacking that I have one of these but you have to take the work out of the chuck http://www.edgetechnologyproducts.com/lathe-tool-positioning-gage.html

[15:31:46] <Aero-Tec> using my height gage would be better then that I would think
[15:32:32] <archivist> and that could work off the flat on the cross slide
[15:33:45] <Aero-Tec> I never did trust caliper measurements like that, to easy to not be 100% spot on, any angle at all will mess up the reading
[15:35:19] <archivist> you can use the other end of the caliper which has a wider area to ensure square, and hold it against something
[15:35:50] <archivist> easy enough to get to a thou

[15:40:12] <Aero-Tec> thanks for the help
[15:40:29] <Aero-Tec> I have some ideas now
[15:41:27] <Aero-Tec> not sure about the caliper idea, will see about using height gage
[15:41:36] <Aero-Tec> same thing mostly
[15:45:35] <Tom_itx> put a tool blank in the drill chuck, put a last word in the lathe chuck
[15:46:15] <jdh> it's hard to read the last word for half the rotation
[15:46:15] <Tom_itx> easy peazy
[15:46:30] <Tom_itx> use a rubber neck or a mirror
[15:47:57] <Tom_itx> or better yet instead of a drill blank, a round certified hole gage

[18:18:00] <Aero-Tec> maybe help with some ideas of new stuff to make
[18:18:46] <Aero-Tec> sales would be nothing more then posting in forum on the net, the odd show if your wanting to
[18:19:05] <Aero-Tec> nothing back braking
[18:19:09] <archivist> there is a local who want some "accounts " on his laptop for his airgun thing
[18:20:39] <Aero-Tec> so he want to trade with you? you do some computer work and he give you some sort of airgun thing?
[18:20:44] <archivist> he runs an airsoft site
[18:21:09] <Aero-Tec> any explanation of what type of airgun thingy?
[18:21:30] <archivist> nah he want cheap accounting loading on his laptop, not decided if I dare take that on though
[18:21:53] <archivist> google airsoft
[18:21:57] <Aero-Tec> I have not got into airsoft yet
[18:22:25] <archivist> bb guns and shooting each other I think

[18:22:41] <Aero-Tec> yes, plastic BBs

[18:23:08] <Aero-Tec> and they can sting when they hit
[18:23:34] <Aero-Tec> a friend of mine uses a airsoft gun to train his dog
[18:25:43] <Aero-Tec> he calls the gun a nug, as he often talks guns so he did not want to dog to react to him said gun, so when he says to the dog do you want me to use the nug the dog knows exactly what he is talking about

[18:35:35] <Aero-Tec> very nice
[18:36:53] <andypugh> How do you measure muzzle energy in torques?
[18:37:18] <Aero-Tec> archivist, love that old pepper box gun, did a search for gun
[18:38:03] <Aero-Tec> not sure what you call that gun over there, but here it is known as a pepper gun
[18:38:12] <archivist> there is a trolley of guns amongst that clock repair job I spied off the roof
[18:38:22] <Aero-Tec> nothing to do with torque
[18:38:38] <ReadError> Chemeleon
[18:38:53] <ReadError> maybe like, 30$
[18:38:53] <andypugh> If it is in units of forc x distance then it is in torques.
[18:39:09] <Aero-Tec> no distance
[18:39:16] <ReadError> archivist: i build them to stand up to crashing ;)
[18:39:17] <Chemeleon> cool, thats not too bad
[18:39:36] <Chemeleon> I've got a few things I'd like to try with carbon fiber eventually, but havent yet gotten around to it
[18:39:37] <Aero-Tec> just speed and weight of bullet
[18:39:38] <archivist> ReadError, that is what they all say !
[18:39:56] <Chemeleon> my brother recently got a job at boeing where he works with the stuff all day, but keeps insisting he cant bring home their scraps :(
[18:40:15] <andypugh> Aero-Tec: Foot = length. pound = weight, or force. You have a stupid system of units so it isn't obvious.
[18:40:52] <Jymmm> https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-6nptRqDPxic/UbNuSI4PhXI/AAAAAAAABSY/_ebbK2vhTgE/w800-h800/1363_466738686751483_926088008_n.jpg
[18:41:41] <Aero-Tec> not mine or our unit of measurement, it is world wide unit for muzzle energy of a gun
[18:42:46] <Aero-Tec> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muzzle_energy
[18:43:37] <andypugh> Ah, wait, torque is the cross-product. The dot-product is work, ie energy. I will go stand in the corner with my dunces cap on.

[19:18:19] <ReadError> sorry to be rude
[19:18:37] <andypugh> Yes. There is one on irc.freenode.net, but also an official one on irc.spotchat.org (linuxmint-help)
[19:18:53] <ReadError> maybe put your mouse over it, click 2 times, watch magic happen
[19:19:21] <archivist> mouse over and right click in some clients
[19:19:22] <Cindy_90> thanks
[19:19:28] <andypugh> You should be able to click on #linuxmint right here, though that probably depends on your chat client.

[19:21:36] <archivist> andypugh, you never noticed leeloomiai :)
[19:22:54] <andypugh> No, you are right.

[19:23:50] <ReadError> and expects people to understand them
[19:23:51] <andypugh> An italian?
[19:23:58] <ReadError> and expects people to understand them ;)
[19:24:05] <andypugh> I understood, vaguely.
[19:24:25] <ReadError> problem linux mint 15
[19:24:34] <ReadError> thats the only thing i understood
[19:24:43] <andypugh> Network driver problem.
[19:25:09] <ReadError> <Cindy_90> ciao non so se posso chiedere a voi
[19:25:09] <ReadError> <Cindy_90> ho un problema con linux mint 15 mi aiutate? please :)
[19:25:14] <ReadError> i couldnt see that
[19:25:23] <ReadError> but i only speak 'murican
[19:25:43] <andypugh> But that doesn't mean you own the internet.
[19:26:03] <archivist> I can still count to three or maybe 5 in italian
[19:26:34] <andypugh> Is the "Calibration" window a standalone app that can be launced from the command line?
[19:26:39] <ReadError> andypugh i think we own more than italy
[19:27:31] <andypugh> Ford Motor Co own more IP space than Africa. But that doesn't mean that the whole of Africa has to start using the word "opportunity" when they mean "failure"
[19:31:38] <archivist> sell an upgrade!

[19:36:08] <pcw_home> I always thought calibrate was built into axis, but I dont know
[19:36:49] <andypugh> It appears that way.
[19:43:25] <JT-Shop> can you run a stepper drive right from the second port on the 5i25?
[19:44:24] <pcw_home> Yes
[19:45:23] <pcw_home> or through a standard PP BOB with the right config
[19:47:12] <JT-Shop> hmm, I have a cnc4pc BOB that I used to use on plasma

[19:47:53] <nspiel> does anyone know the right way to wire up limit switches
[19:48:04] <nspiel> to the i/o unused on mesa boards?
[19:48:20] <JT-Shop> yea
[19:48:57] <nspiel> how
[19:49:04] <nspiel> with pullup resistor?
[19:49:18] <JT-Shop> http://gnipsel.com/linuxcnc/configs/7i77.html
[19:49:50] <JT-Shop> limit switches are always N/C
[19:50:35] <nspiel> n/c = no connect?
[19:50:48] <JT-Shop> normally closed
[19:51:11] <JT-Shop> when you trip a limit switch you want the circuit to go open same as if you cut a wire
[19:51:59] <nspiel> how many limit switches can lcnc have per axis?
[19:52:13] <JT-Shop> as many as you want
[19:52:38] <nspiel> i have two per angular axis
[19:53:05] <pcw_home> bare FPGA I/O on Mesa FPGA cards always has pullups so NC switch to ground is the easiest way
[19:53:12] <JT-Shop> it is normal to have one limit on each end of travel for all axis unless there is no limit on the travel
[19:53:55] <JT-Shop> like on a 5i20?
[19:54:42] <nspiel> what does n/c to ground mean on mesa cards?
[19:55:09] <JT-Shop> n/c means a switch is closed unless tripped then it is open
[19:55:23] <JT-Shop> n/o is the opposite
[19:56:41] <nspiel> ?
[19:56:46] <nspiel> so it is hooked up to 5V on one end to a pin and then when tripped the pin goes to ground- the i/o pin on the mesa board
[19:58:51] <pcw_home> no, when not tripped, the limit switch ties the pin to ground (so it read as low or false)
[19:59:31] <nspiel> and then when tripped it should read nothing?
[20:00:21] <pcw_home> when the limit switch is tripped, the pin is left open and a pullup on the FPGA card pulls the pin to a high (true) state
[20:03:06] <pcw_home> You can verify this with your DVM
[20:03:07] <pcw_home> (unconnected FPGA input pins will read as ~3.3V which is a high input level)

[20:06:10] <nspiel> and i can configure two limit switches per axis with lcnc and my mesa boards?
[20:08:35] <JT-Shop> http://www.linuxcnc.org/docs/html/man/man9/motion.9.html
[20:10:11] <pcw_home> You can wire up as many limit switches as you have free pins,
[20:10:12] <pcw_home> I'm not sure linuxCNC can use more than 3 per axis (2 limits and a home)
[20:11:18] <JT-Shop> I'm pretty sure three imputs per axis is the max, you can have as many switches as you like
[20:11:57] <JT-Shop> my Hardinge CHNC had a coarse and fine home switch but I only used one with index
[20:12:16] <JT-Shop> so index might be the fourth input that can be used
[20:12:44] <pcw_home> yeah that is sort of a 4th limit

[20:39:19] <andypugh> Jymmm: http://www.andersonpower.com/products/singlepole-connectors.html (but not _actually_ locking)
[20:41:34] <andypugh> This variant has an optional latch:
[20:41:36] <andypugh> http://www.andersonpower.com/products/powerpak-powerpole-pak.html
[20:42:05] <andypugh> But as far as I can tell, any time something grows a latch it stops being genderless.
[20:43:45] <Loetmichel> andypugh: maybe a construction like firehose connectors?
[20:43:54] <Loetmichel> i.e bayonet-like?
[20:44:05] <Loetmichel> that should be genderless AND locking
[20:45:41] <andypugh> Yes, good point. He didn't specify a size limit: http://www.firelogistics.com.au/stortz25tail.jpg
[20:46:39] <Jymmm> andypugh: I have powerpoles now (genderless), just need the locking part
[20:47:21] <andypugh> drill a hole and have an R-clip on a chain?
[20:47:25] <Jymmm> r clip?
[20:47:45] <andypugh> No, an r-clip wouldn't work. Needs to be an R-clip
[20:48:06] <Jymmm> O_o
[20:48:09] <andypugh> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/R-clip
[20:48:33] <jdh> bigger powerpoles are pretty much self-locking
