[00:02:23] * JT-Shop is making pizza tonight... everyone is welcome
[00:03:33] <PetefromTn> Hey thanks JT!!
[00:03:46] <PetefromTn> Make mine a meat lovers with italian snausages LOL...
[00:03:53] <CaptHindsight> heh, there was a client we had that would always make similar offers that would not be possible to act on just to look good
[00:04:15] <CaptHindsight> JT-Shop: but is genuine
[00:05:02] <PetefromTn> Well guys I am excited to say that I made that part for the first time just now using the CamBam program and my modified post processor for LinuxCNC. The part come out pretty damn nice and I am so excited. Could not have done it without your help guys...
[00:05:41] <JT-Shop> that is cool!
[00:06:04] <JT-Shop> I make my own pizza sauce and it is much better than store bought
[00:06:30] <JT-Shop> http://www.gnipsel.com/recipes/pizza/pizza-sauce-fresh.html
[00:06:46] <jdh> I make mine also, but I don't have a recipe.
[00:06:54] <jdh> and it doesn't involve any tomatoes
[00:07:10] <PetefromTn> http://imagebin.org/290201
[00:07:20] <PetefromTn> Nothing earth shattering but it is what I wanted.
[00:07:30] <jdh> pretty. cambam'ed?
[00:07:57] <PetefromTn> yup.. I know it is not a pro level program but it works pretty damn good.
[00:08:11] <JT-Shop> looks good
[00:08:14] <PetefromTn> I cannot wait to start trying their 3d toolpaths and trochoidal milling etc..
[00:08:15] <jdh> pro-level = way more than I can afford
[00:08:25] <PetefromTn> yeah me too at least right now...
[00:08:35] -!- Einar_ has quit [Quit: Leaving]
[00:08:53] <jdh> JT: I like olive oil, crushed galic, basil, rosemary, fresh black pepper
[00:09:10] <PetefromTn> http://imagebin.org/290202
[00:09:17] <JT-Shop> jdh, that sounds good too
[00:09:31] -!- patricka_ has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[00:09:34] <PetefromTn> Ooh yes except for the rosemary..
[00:09:41] <JT-Shop> I assume you meant to type garlic
[00:09:42] <jdh> interesting pocketing pattern in the middle.
[00:09:45] -!- afiber__ has quit [Quit: Konversation terminated!]
[00:09:54] <jdh> yeah, not so fond of galics
[00:09:55] <mozmck> PetefromTn: nice part! What CAD are you using?
[00:10:27] <jdh> sometimes I put a ton of chopped cilantro on
[00:10:59] <PetefromTn> I actually drew that in 2d cad using Draftsight..
[00:11:08] <mozmck> oh, ok.
[00:11:13] <PetefromTn> The next part is much more complex..
[00:11:24] <mozmck> I've been playing with FreeCAD and it looks pretty powerful.
[00:11:35] <PetefromTn> Oh yeah me too... It really has promise.
[00:11:58] <JT-Shop> PetefromTn, what does the part do?
[00:12:00] <PetefromTn> The other part I am making I drew in Freecad. This one is so simple it did not warrant a 3d drawing.
[00:12:17] <PetefromTn> JT-Shop: It is a hub for another project that will index to it.
[00:12:48] <jdh> do you part that, or is that it?
[00:12:49] <PetefromTn> You can see the pattern is the same all the way around except for one piece is missing the cutout so that part will index it.
[00:12:49] <mozmck> It looks like you could do 2D just as easy in FreeCAD to me.
[00:12:59] <JT-Shop> cool, can't wait to see the assembly
[00:13:18] <PetefromTn> No I need to setup a champfering op and then take it to the bandsaw and part it off followed by the lathe.
[00:13:42] -!- arvidkahl has quit [Quit: Textual IRC Client: www.textualapp.com]
[00:13:50] <PetefromTn> Only problem is I do not have a decent champfer tool worth a crap right now and I don't want to spoil it.
[00:14:19] <PetefromTn> Man I am so excited to be making machined parts again finally.
[00:14:30] <jdh> I used a 90 degree carbide wood bit on 6061 last time, it worked great

[00:14:54] <PetefromTn> My Oldest Daughter wants me to install flooring in her house next weekend and she kinda hinted she would buy me a set of toolholders if I do it for her LOL..
[00:15:22] <PetefromTn> yeah I have some of those and have done that before as well. Works fine. Debating whether or not I should just order a nice one from MSC...
[00:15:30] <PetefromTn> Anyone got any reccomendations for it.
[00:17:30] <jdh> time to go load up dive gear for the morning!
[00:17:48] <jdh> kind of fun since we have been iced in since tuesday
[00:17:58] <JT-Shop> I get my tooling from Lakeshore Carbide
[00:18:26] <PetefromTn> What do you use for a champfer bit?
[00:18:43] <PetefromTn> Heard a lot of good things about Lakeshore. I usually buy from Maritool.
[00:19:02] <JT-Shop> I get all my tool holding from Maris
[00:19:08] <JT-Shop> love the quality
[00:19:21] <PetefromTn> Yeah he has some nice stuff...
[00:19:43] <JT-Shop> http://www.lakeshorecarbide.com/chamferdrillmills.aspx
[00:19:47] <PetefromTn> Wish I could afford the toolholders I am probably going to get my Cat40s from Shars... I have one or two of them and they seem fine.
[00:20:40] <JT-Shop> might find some good ones on flea bay

[00:21:14] <JT-Shop> I use these on steel http://www.lakeshorecarbide.com/chamfertools.aspx
[00:21:17] <PetefromTn> Those look nice... Kinda pricey. I just checked out a 1/2 inch uncoated carbide CM for $39.41.. ouch.
[00:21:38] <JT-Shop> and these on ally http://www.lakeshorecarbide.com/chamferdrill-mills.aspx
[00:22:00] <JT-Shop> you need a 1/2" chamfer?
[00:22:16] <PetefromTn> no but I use them for spot drills too..
[00:22:31] <PetefromTn> especially if I went with one of those drill mills.
[00:22:36] <PetefromTn> What size do you use?
[00:22:51] <JT-Shop> I use these for spot drilling http://www.lakeshorecarbide.com/spotdrillscarbide.aspx
[00:23:03] <JT-Shop> usually a 1/4" for chamfers
[00:23:37] <PetefromTn> interesting. What head angle do you buy in the spots?
[00:23:56] <JT-Shop> 120
[00:24:11] <PetefromTn> and what angle drills do you use mostly?
[00:24:17] <JT-Shop> 134
[00:24:19] <JT-Shop> 5
[00:24:41] <PetefromTn> cool. that is what I was thinking I would do. My drills are 135
[00:24:52] <JT-Shop> I use stub drills usually
[00:25:04] <PetefromTn> Yeah whenever possible right.
[00:25:20] <JT-Shop> screw machine drills, shorter and more rigid
[00:25:48] <JT-Shop> yea, otherwise I have 118 jobbers for deep hole
[00:26:12] * JT-Shop wanders inside to make pizza
[00:26:25] <JT-Shop> you guys have fun... see you in the morning
[00:26:27] <PetefromTn> I can smell that pizza from here man
[00:26:37] <PetefromTn> When do I get a slice?
[00:26:48] <PetefromTn> Cya JT enjoy...
[00:26:53] <PCW> Mmm Pizza!
[00:28:04] <PetefromTn> Yeah Homemade too. I occasionally make our own pizza here. Got a neat recipe from Emeril awhile back.

[01:36:35] <Tom_L> ok it must be using a default post
[01:36:44] <Tom_L> how do i switch?
[01:40:59] <PetefromTn> System tab post processors linuxCNC
[01:41:24] <Tom_L> i was gonna use a customized one
[01:41:43] <Tom_L> how do you get it to switch without causing a system fault?
[01:41:45] <Tom_L> ;D
[01:43:24] <PetefromTn> honestly dunno I started with the linuxCNC post and whenever you mod it you are basically redoing it with a 1 or 2 or 3 or whatever. I have not ever input a post into the program so I do not know how to do it.
[01:43:39] <Tom_L> maybe you gotta buy it to use new post
[01:44:02] <PetefromTn> I doubt it the trial is supposed to be the complete program.
[01:44:34] <PetefromTn> Apparently it is in Documents and setting like you said no? Maybe remove and replace?
[01:45:39] <PetefromTn> Got a problem here I gotta take care of need to run out of the house for an hour or so. The machine is working fine right now and the code worked good with the exception of the spindle start and stop timing with code.
[01:46:30] <PetefromTn> I have all weekend to work on it now and I am gonna be doing the cam work on the mating part for that boss here over the weekend too so this is not a big hurry at all.
[01:47:00] <PetefromTn> I reallly REALLY appreciate your assistance with this Tom. I will need to buy ya a soda or something LOL..
[01:47:50] <Tom_L> i'll mess with it a bit and see where it goes
[01:48:14] <PetefromTn> I'll be back in an hour or so. talk later.

[03:26:43] <skunkworks> What's in the Box!!??
[03:27:22] <zeeshan|2> DISCONNECt switch
[03:27:27] <zeeshan|2> whoops at caps
[03:27:56] <zeeshan|2> so far ive done the wiring for the power supplies, drivers, vfd
[03:28:03] <zeeshan|2> and control side of steppers
[03:28:17] <zeeshan|2> enough of this for today
[03:28:34] <jdh> got an e-stop circuit?
[03:28:43] <zeeshan|2> yea
[03:28:57] <zeeshan|2> i have aux contacts on the disconnect switch
[03:29:10] <zeeshan|2> so that will trigger "e-stop" automatically
[03:29:24] <zeeshan|2> cause shutting the power down for a vfd while the motor is running is a major no
[03:29:55] <zeeshan|2> so basically the aux contacts will trigger e-stop and put the vfd is fault mode
[03:30:21] <jdh> no estop on the machine?
[03:30:31] <zeeshan|2> there will be e-stop on the machine too
[03:30:41] <zeeshan|2> thats just a series switch through the aux contacts

[03:55:56] <PetefromTn> not sure man standby..
[03:57:07] <roycroft> it's going to be pretty easy - i can direct couple the stepper motor shafts to the screwdrivers
[03:57:32] <PetefromTn> aah I see whaddya think I should do there insert the M5 in the end cut of course?
[03:57:47] <Tom_itx> i want to know more about those sections
[03:57:52] <Tom_itx> they don't seem to be implemented
[03:58:20] <Tom_itx> if i enter something in them they should show up in the post file
[03:58:38] <PetefromTn> They are not in my setup the guys at CamBam forum seem to think that preparing the post processor is not only something you can do but is required so most of the posts are in fact simplistic.
[03:58:56] <PetefromTn> Standby I will try it.
[03:59:08] <Tom_itx> it doesn't work
[03:59:10] <Tom_itx> i did already

[04:06:12] <Tom_itx> put more than M5
[04:06:15] <Tom_itx> add a comment with it
[04:07:40] <Tom_itx> it doesn't do anything here

[04:20:14] <PetefromTn> That looks better but there is still a problem.
[04:21:25] <PetefromTn> when you setup an MOP with a particular cutter and follow it with anothe MOP with the same cutter the spindle does not really come out of the work except to go to clearance plain and the way that is the spindle will stop when it does that and there may not be enough time to go back up to speed before it gets to the next cut.
[04:23:21] <PetefromTn> Ideally the spindle would not stop until the toolchange happens and the code I ran to make that part eariler had it in the toolchange part which worked fine except for the fact that there was an M5 before the first toolchange which was odd.
[04:23:33] <Tom_itx> insert a point above the work inbetween those cuts
[04:24:29] <Tom_itx> it's good they don't charge much for this thing.
[04:24:44] <PetefromTn> there is, that is the clearance plain but it is not enough time..
[04:24:59] <Tom_itx> time for what?
[04:25:22] <PetefromTn> yeah I know it is only $150.00 and gives you pretty nice 3d toolpathing and your basic machining ops too.
[04:25:28] <PetefromTn> spindle ramp back up.
[04:25:43] <Tom_itx> so don't let the spindle shut off
[04:25:55] <PetefromTn> You should see some of the videos of the Trochoidal milling and 3d toolpathing on youtube done by CamBam.
[04:26:04] <PetefromTn> that is what I want it to do LOL.
[04:27:02] <Tom_itx> i added the M5 in each profile in the Custom MOP Footer section
[04:27:09] <Tom_itx> along with the M9
[04:27:28] <PetefromTn> I think the best way is to just put the M5 into the toolchange that way no matter what it will stop. Right now tho after the MOP it goes to clearance plain and then up to Z0 with the spindle still spinning.
[04:27:38] <Tom_itx> if you don't want the spindle to shut off, don't add it to that section
[04:27:49] <Tom_itx> don't put it in the post at all
[04:28:15] <PetefromTn> maybe I am not explaining myself too well.
[04:28:35] <Tom_itx> was my code ok as far as the M5?
[04:29:01] <PetefromTn> Ideally the spindle would start either at the clearance plain or at the toolchange and end at the clearance plain after the MOP is finished.
[04:29:13] <PetefromTn> No actually it was not
[04:29:30] <Tom_itx> so you don't want it between the profiles of the same tool
[04:29:37] <PetefromTn> because like I said when you go to another MOP using the same tool
[04:29:43] <PetefromTn> yes exactly...
[04:29:47] <Tom_itx> mkay
[04:29:53] <Tom_itx> what would you like to happen there?
[04:30:37] <PetefromTn> basically nothing because using the same tool it should just keep spinning and flooding coolant and just move to the next cut seamlessly.
[04:30:49] <Tom_itx> ok.
[04:30:52] <Tom_itx> hold on
[04:31:01] <PetefromTn> Then when you get to a toolchange it should stop spindle at the clearance plain before it heads up the column.

[04:31:17] <Tom_itx> we'll get to that
[04:31:35] <PetefromTn> okay man thank you again for your help.
[04:32:23] <Tom_itx> this just runs so farking slow on the pc it takes a while to edit
[04:32:54] <Tom_itx> which profiles use the same tool?
[04:32:58] <PetefromTn> really it does not here it is pretty speedy. In fact I have not noticed ANY delay with CamBam even posting some rather large funky 3d code..
[04:33:18] <PetefromTn> Don't understand the question.
[04:34:17] <Tom_itx> there are drill1, profile1, profile3, profile4, profile2, profile5, profile6 in the 'machineing' section
[04:34:31] <Tom_itx> i realize drill1 is by itself
[04:34:41] <Tom_itx> what others use the same tool?
[04:36:57] <PetefromTn> I am not sure really but if I had to guess what those profiles are they probably relate to Pocket, profile inside, profile outside, engrave, etc.
[04:37:15] <Tom_itx> how many tools do you use?
[04:37:49] <PetefromTn> depends on the job they don't relate to the number of tools I don't think.
[04:38:03] <Tom_itx> for this part how many tools do you use?
[04:38:06] <Tom_itx> 2?
[04:38:09] <PetefromTn> What I am talking about could happen with ANY tool.
[04:38:17] <PetefromTn> yeah 2 for this part.
[04:39:02] <Tom_itx> refresh test.txt
[04:40:11] <PetefromTn> not sure what you mean here.
[04:40:20] <Tom_itx> http://tom-itx.dyndns.org:81/~webpage/cnc/pete/test.txt
[04:41:55] <Tom_itx> i can't find any way to make G1 G2 G3 modal in the post or otherwise
[04:42:00] <Tom_itx> which sucks
[04:42:14] <PetefromTn> Hey man that looks decent.
[04:42:33] <Tom_itx> remove M5 from your post
[04:42:39] <PetefromTn> No M5 before the initial toolchange and there is no stopping spindle or coolant if there is no toolchange.
[04:43:13] <Tom_itx> just a sec, i'll post this post
[04:43:27] <PetefromTn> what did you do exactly?
[04:43:47] <Tom_itx> i'm not gonna tell ya
[04:43:54] <PetefromTn> LOL
[04:44:06] <Tom_itx> http://tom-itx.dyndns.org:81/~webpage/cnc/pete/PETE.cbpp
[04:44:16] <Tom_itx> there's the post that spit the code out
[04:44:39] <PetefromTn> LOL I noticed you removed the tool callouts before the code starts..
[04:45:01] <Tom_itx> well if you want em keep em
[04:45:21] <PetefromTn> No its okay..
[04:45:35] <Tom_itx> this is not nearly as flexible as mine
[04:45:42] <PetefromTn> Now I just gotta figure out how to install that into my setup here.
[04:45:58] <Tom_itx> edit the friggin file with gedit
[04:46:17] <Tom_itx> then reload it in cambam
[04:46:25] <PetefromTn> This is not on my machine computer its on my win8 laptop.
[04:46:40] <Tom_itx> ok well use notepad then
[04:46:46] <PetefromTn> I'll see if I can figure out how to put it back in.
[04:46:48] <Tom_itx> or copy con for all i care
[04:47:01] <Tom_itx> put what back in?
[04:47:04] <PetefromTn> LOL have I upset you?
[04:47:06] <Tom_itx> no
[04:47:13] <Tom_itx> i'm just messin with ya
[04:47:23] <PetefromTn> the post processor you modded of course.
[04:47:34] <Tom_itx> what do you want to put where?
[04:47:41] <PetefromTn> standby...
[04:48:12] <Tom_itx> then i'll tell you how i did it
[04:52:52] <PetefromTn> Damn it did not work. Not sure I got the post to install right. Tryin again.

[05:05:25] <Tom_itx> remove it
[05:05:49] <PetefromTn> okay
[05:05:50] <Tom_itx> leave the M8 in the Custom MOP Header
[05:06:00] <Tom_itx> ok next profile in line...
[05:06:06] <Tom_itx> Profile3
[05:06:10] <Tom_itx> remove both
[05:06:26] <Tom_itx> because the coolant is on and you don't want the spindle to stop
[05:06:34] <Tom_itx> right?
[05:06:44] <PetefromTn> yeah.
[05:06:53] <Tom_itx> do that for all of them except the last one
[05:07:01] <Tom_itx> tell me when you're ready for the last one
[05:07:18] <PetefromTn> Oh I see but that is not a post fix that just fixed THIS program.

[05:07:35] <Tom_itx> it sucks

[05:08:27] <PetefromTn> There has gotta be a way to make this work in some way shape or form or combo of these settings.

[05:09:34] <Tom_itx> the END CUT, START CUT aren't defined anywhere
[05:09:43] <Tom_itx> and not mentioned in the documentation
[05:10:17] <Tom_itx> but if you do this, it will put out the code you want
[05:10:22] <PetefromTn> I think you have helped me to know how to play with this so I will spend some time monkeying around with it until I get it where I need it.
[05:10:23] <Tom_itx> except the return plane
[05:10:29] <Tom_itx> i haven't looked at that yet
[05:10:53] <PetefromTn> The return plane is whereever it says {$clearance}
[05:11:16] <Tom_itx> anyway, on the last profile you would add the M5 to the M9 in the Custom MOP Footer section
[05:11:30] <Tom_itx> and that's how i got the code you saw
[05:11:38] <PetefromTn> okay thanks again so much for the help.
[05:11:55] <PetefromTn> I THINK I know enough about it now to experiment with it.
[05:12:05] <Tom_itx> i don't think you'll find it in the post
[05:12:09] <PetefromTn> I am sure I will figure out a way.
[05:12:28] <PetefromTn> Its gotta be..
[05:12:46] <Tom_itx> it's not documented if it is
[05:12:50] <PetefromTn> I am gonna get on the CamBam forum some more and ask for help there.

[05:16:16] <PetefromTn> I will chat with you later man. Again Can't thank you enough for your help.
[05:16:23] <Tom_itx> np
[05:16:28] <PetefromTn> yeah man I wish I could afford something like that.
[05:16:57] <PetefromTn> Honestly what CamBam does is a great bargain for what you get and the code ran fine with these small exceptions.
[05:17:25] <PetefromTn> It seems like it will do 99 percent of what I need it to once I get it setup right.
[05:21:01] <ReadError> wish it had a few more features
[05:21:09] <ReadError> like 'overcut'
[05:21:38] <ReadError> the 'spiral' style pocketing
[05:23:56] <ReadError> also copying toolpaths during an array copy would be nice..
[05:26:44] <PetefromTn> It has spiral pocketing..
[05:27:03] <PetefromTn> It can do thredmilling.
[05:27:40] <PetefromTn> You can basically copy and past anything in the tree and assign toolpaths to them in several ways.

[05:42:23] <ReadError> yea 2 different things
[05:42:41] <ReadError> aspire allows you to overcut
[05:42:44] <PetefromTn> what exactly are you trying to do..
[05:42:51] <ReadError> nothing, it works fine
[05:42:57] <ReadError> but in terms of pocketing
[05:43:15] <ReadError> if im pocketing a hole, i would like it to do the spiral
[05:43:23] <ReadError> seems more efficient, less z movement
[05:43:32] -!- dnaleromj has quit [Quit: Dang. Where did dnaleromj's computer go?]

[05:44:40] -!- Thetawaves has quit [Quit: This computer has gone to sleep]
[05:44:53] <ReadError> spiral to the contour yet
[05:44:54] <PetefromTn> It has spiral lead in and out as well as tangent lead in and out.
[05:45:11] <ReadError> instead of cutting a circle square, moving the z up
[05:45:16] <ReadError> then going to the next pass
[05:46:25] <PetefromTn> You can spiral down to depth and then do an internal profil with cut width would do that pretty easy.
[05:46:26] <ReadError> http://i.imgur.com/TH4hTSv.png
[05:48:34] <PetefromTn> An internal profile with cut width like I am saying works almost the same way just makes circles and steps over as it moves outward after each pass without coming out of the hole.
[05:48:56] <PetefromTn> Also there is a spiral and helical toolpath plugin I have not played with yet.

[16:00:59] <mozmck> I get disgruntled about any time I read any of the modern laws. Take a look at the "rules of evidence" to see how a judge can withhold relevant evidence to a case "if it will do more harm than good".

[18:12:53] <zeeshan|2> since this lessens the life of the vfd

[18:13:33] <zeeshan|2> thats why disconnect switches for vfd always have aux contacts
[18:13:38] <zeeshan|2> http://ecatalog.hubbell-wiring.com/press/pdfs/WLFS002.pdf
[18:15:26] <pcw_home> not related (thats disconnecting the motor from the VFD, a very different situation)
[18:16:43] <Einar_> A VFD usually will not loose power until the motor is almost at standstill if it gets a stop cmd before or when the power goes. It will regenerate to the DC link from braking the motor.

[18:17:12] <zeeshan|2> pcw_home: you're right
[18:17:17] <zeeshan|2> i've been writing that wrong
[18:17:18] <Einar_> One of the exceptions is if the logic inside it is driven from a separate (internal) PSU.
[18:17:25] <zeeshan|2> its when you're disconnecting t1 t2 t3 not l1 l2 l3
[18:17:26] <zeeshan|2> my bad!
[18:17:54] <zeeshan|2> A disconnect can be used between the drive and the motor. This is general practice to assure that power does not reach the motor during maintenance and other non-operating times. Note that the disconnect should not be opened or closed while the motor is running. This will damage the output IGBT components of the drive and such damage is not covered under warranty. Recommend adding a fast acting a
[18:17:56] <Einar_> Yes, never break connection between motor and VFD when VFD is under power!
[18:18:06] <zeeshan|2> yep!
[18:18:08] <zeeshan|2> sorry my bad
[18:18:24] <zeeshan|2> i don't have a disconnect between motor and vfd
[18:18:30] <zeeshan|2> i have it between line side of vfd
[18:18:45] <zeeshan|2> which when activated, sets enable to low on the vfd
[18:18:51] <zeeshan|2> and puts the vfd in error mode
[18:20:16] <Einar_> That will be OK unless the manual says otherwise. It may be smart to activate the RUN signal through a relay. If line power goes down, this relay will drop and activate a VFD Stop.

[19:44:46] <PetefromTn> My flatscreen had audio out but it is digital audio out...
[19:45:18] <PetefromTn> Don't feel like buying a new surround system mine is excellent...

[20:07:18] <Deejay> twice dvi :)
[20:07:27] <Loetmichel> MODERN
[20:07:30] <Deejay> yes, its an older model ;)
[20:08:16] <Loetmichel> PetefromTn: hdmi has audio builtin
[20:08:32] <Deejay> but how to get it out? ;)
[20:08:35] <Loetmichel> feed the hdmi to your flatscreen and get the digital audio out there
[20:08:51] <Loetmichel> the tft TV have a audio out usually
[20:09:06] <Loetmichel> that also decodes the audio stream of the HDMI
[20:09:30] <PetefromTn> Yes of course but you cannot get it out into your surround sound if it does not have HDMI or digital audio in..
[20:10:21] <Loetmichel> the TV has to have hdmi input anyways to look at the BDs ;-)

[20:15:26] <PetefromTn> Yeah it does have HDMI input that is how we use the blu ray. But it does not have audio out and honestly I would rather not use it even if it did because I like to stream pandora on the wifi enabled blu ray player into the stereo and not have to have the TV on while doing it unless I want to switch channels or whatever.
[20:16:27] <PetefromTn> Saves the TV screen from getting burned with the pandora screen siince it is often on while I do my Cad drawing.
[20:16:35] <Loetmichel> so you have to buy a tc with audio out or a stereo with hdmi in

[20:48:21] <Connor> I run HDMI into my TV and the Optical out to sound system. I have 2 HDMI devices, Works fine.
[20:51:40] <zeeshan|2> question about safety charge pump board. so basically emc sends a 12.5khz signal through one of the parallel port output pins
[20:51:58] <zeeshan|2> as long as the charge pump is getting the 12.5khz signal, it doesnt activate the relay
[20:52:20] <zeeshan|2> but asap it loses the 12.5khz signal, it will activate the relay which is like "pushing" the e-stop button
[20:52:25] <zeeshan|2> and that disables the system right?
[20:53:12] <Connor> That's the theory yes. Not sure about the HZ of the signal.. I think the 12.5khz comes from Mach3 ..
[20:53:24] <zeeshan|2> this board says it needs 12.5khz signal
[20:53:28] <zeeshan|2> http://cnc4pc.com/Tech_Docs/C4R6WG.pdf
[20:54:11] <Connor> C4 one? yes. That works with Linuxcnc.. I have that very one.
[20:54:30] <zeeshan|2> help me wire it :P
[20:54:33] <zeeshan|2> virtually
[20:55:04] <PetefromTn> Did you use an adapter to convert the digital audio out to RCA?
[20:55:09] <Connor> depends on how your setup is.. I have mine in Series with E-Stop.
[20:55:26] <zeeshan|2> connor, my e-stop sends a signal to the VFD to put it in fault
[20:55:36] <Connor> PetefromTn: No, My TV outputs optical, Sound system takes optical in.
[20:55:42] <zeeshan|2> from there, i use the outputs from the vfd to make an e-stop circuit
[20:55:43] <zeeshan|2> :)
[20:55:45] <Jymmm> zeeshan|2: Sure, just connect al the black, red, white, and green wires together and flip the switch.
[20:55:50] <zeeshan|2> Jymmm: lol
[20:56:08] <zeeshan|2> ive done all the easy wiring so far
[20:56:14] <zeeshan|2> http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p252/turbozee84/chargepump_zps5b254a90.png
[20:56:21] <Connor> zeeshan|2: Sends a signal? E-Stop should ALWAYS be a fail safe. I.E. Circuit must be COMPLETE to function.
[20:56:26] <zeeshan|2> http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p252/turbozee84/CONTROLLER3_zps8c3f66c1.png
[20:57:12] <zeeshan|2> connor i understand that
[20:57:21] <zeeshan|2> on my vfd there are 2 outputs NC and NO
[20:58:07] <zeeshan|2> so im wiring it through the NC relay in the vfd..
[20:58:26] <Connor> I would use the NC.. in series with your E-Stop, charge pump.
[20:58:27] <zeeshan|2> hm, maybe i need a 2 pole e-stop switch :(

[20:59:56] <Connor> Trying to remember how I have mine.. I have a 2nd relay in the mix that toggles control signal to the SCR for the Spindle.. and I somehow have the C10 wired up too so that it disables the stepper drivers.
[21:00:06] <zeeshan|2> the way i current have my e-stop is like this. my vfd's pin DI6 outputs a 12V signal. from that pin i have it going to the e-stop button. and the other pin coming out of the e-stop button is going to the COM port of the VFD
[21:00:40] <Connor> and yes.. a safety relay would be nice..
[21:00:44] <Connor> into the COM port ?
[21:01:37] <Connor> I also have a push-to-start.. so after E-stop is tripped, I have to push the button, and toggle LinuxCNC power on.

[21:02:55] <PetefromTn> sorry for the OT fellas..
[21:03:13] <PetefromTn> The Denon takes old style RCA..
[21:03:30] <Connor> No optic, not PCM digital in ?
[21:03:39] <PetefromTn> They make an adapter for it for like ten bucks but we can't use the surround until we get one here.
[21:04:35] <Connor> Mine even takes HDMI in, but, I don't use it cause it caused issues, just ran inputs through TV and let it act as the switch and then feed the sound system.

[21:06:03] <MrSunshine> had to tear down the Z axis and do some milling on it .. again! ... and add set screws for easier tramming ... :/
[21:06:04] <Connor> yes, you can.. you wire the NO side of the relay on the charge pump in series.
[21:07:15] <Connor> So, unless the Charge Pump is active.. (closing the relay) then the Fault is open.
[21:07:44] <zeeshan|2> yes
[21:07:53] <PetefromTn> MrSunshine: Damn that sucks..been there. When I built my RF45 CNC I wound up tearing it apart three different times because of backlash issues. Finally OVERBUILT the crap out of it and did not have any further problems.

[21:09:28] <Connor> I have my C10 in series with that as well.. (using +v5) so, when Estop or charge pump is tripped.. it kills the C10 breakout, which then pulls the pin for the linuxcnc high or low.. (don't remember)

[21:10:32] <MrSunshine> as its a wood router its not a huge problem with some tilt in the Z and its mostly for signs and stuff so =)

[21:11:01] <zeeshan|2> sec.
[21:11:08] <MrSunshine> PetefromTn, friend got one, but its not fully equiped so gonna see if i can make do or ill wait until monday and go by my old work and borrow the milling machine there =)
[21:11:13] <Connor> The charge pump isn't.. it's only a single pole. though, you could add 4 pole in it.. and let the charge pump relay toggle IT..

[21:11:47] <PetefromTn> at least you can get it taken care of..
[21:11:54] <Swapper_> Hi!
[21:11:54] <Swapper_> Extremely new to linuxcnc but still have a question for future plans on my mill conversion.
[21:11:58] <Swapper_> would it be possible to emulate the encoder signals that linuxcmc needs for rigid tapping from step/dir output ?
[21:12:01] <Swapper_> i have a step/dir servodrive that i think i can tune to be able to folow the step/dir closley.
[21:12:04] <Swapper_> secondly i could get a index pulse from the actual drive.
[21:12:06] <Swapper_> Would it be doable?
[21:12:25] <MrSunshine> PetefromTn, ofc, or ill just drill throught it all and torque it down on the lathe and use that as a mililng machine
[21:12:35] <MrSunshine> either way im going to make it in 90 degrees to the other surface :P
[21:12:52] <PetefromTn> Get it done man GET IT DONE LOL
[21:12:56] <jdh> you have a step/dir servo controlling the spindle?
[21:13:02] <Swapper_> yes
[21:13:08] <jdh> nifty

[21:13:47] <zeeshan|2> thats how i currently have my e-stop circuit
[21:14:12] <Swapper_> so i cant get the encoder emulation out from the drive and at the same time control it with step/dir.
[21:14:14] <zeeshan|2> now how do i tell emc through its pin#10 that e-stop is active

[21:16:04] <zeeshan|2> when you press the e-stop
[21:16:07] <zeeshan|2> it shuts off the drive
[21:16:12] <Jymmm> big red button?
[21:16:22] <Jymmm> a switch?

[21:16:42] <zeeshan|2> but there is a disconnect switch auxillary contacts in series in that circuit too
[21:17:00] <zeeshan|2> so if either the disconnect or e-stop is activated
[21:17:05] <zeeshan|2> the drive goes in fault mode
[21:17:29] <zeeshan|2> what im wondering is how i tell emc now that the system in e-stop mode

[21:18:45] <Jymmm> switch? But a big red button?
[21:18:47] <zeeshan|2> e-stop is a switch.
[21:18:55] <zeeshan|2> charge pump is a relay

[21:25:24] <MrSunshine> oo new project again! :P
[21:25:32] <MrSunshine> new limit/home switches for the cnc :P
[21:26:05] <PetefromTn> I guess those folks harassing you for work are gonna have to wait a bit longer LOL...
[21:26:09] <MrSunshine> haha
[21:26:21] <MrSunshine> nah this is a change i can make later and it will be just bolt on when its done =)

[21:27:28] <Tom_itx> PetefromTn make sure you get a 4k flatscreen you can't use yet too
[21:28:13] <PetefromTn> Yeah funny you mention it, we were in HHGregg and they have some STUPID expensive ones over there. $4K is nothing...
[21:28:29] <Tom_itx> 4k res
[21:28:43] <PetefromTn> Seems like everything is going up but our damn paychecks..

[21:29:07] <Tom_itx> my paycheck keeps going up
[21:29:10] <Tom_itx> in smoke
[21:29:17] <PetefromTn> LOL
[21:29:31] <PetefromTn> I just hear this massive sucking sound from my wallet.
[21:30:04] <PetefromTn> Trying to decide which toolholders to order here...
[21:30:24] <zeeshan|2> http://i62.photobucket.com/albums/h99/alexccm/PIC_0208.jpg
[21:30:39] <zeeshan|2> if you look at this diagram, this e-stop makes a complete circuit with 5v and then back to pin 10.
[21:30:44] <zeeshan|2> the problem with my circuit is its at 12v.
[21:31:03] <PetefromTn> Was thinking of getting this setup from Shars.. Great value I think...

[21:31:17] <zeeshan|2> i love shars products
[21:31:39] <PetefromTn> They are just Okay I think but several shops near me have a bunch of them and never heard any complaints.

[21:31:52] <zeeshan|2> that is what i have
[21:31:55] <CaptHindsight> PetefromTn: I have few sets
[21:32:04] <PetefromTn> Oh yeah how do you like them?
[21:32:11] <zeeshan|2> they're not glacern tools er32 collets
[21:32:13] <zeeshan|2> but they're good enough
[21:32:47] <CaptHindsight> they are fine, just be sure to get the matching wrench, they sent us the wrong size
[21:32:57] <PetefromTn> Did you guys buy the ER32's in stub length like this or do you have ER16's or 20's too..
[21:32:58] <zeeshan|2> i can measure no runout on them
[21:32:58] <zeeshan|2> ;P
[21:33:10] <PetefromTn> NO RUNOUT???
[21:33:20] <zeeshan|2> infinite runout :P
[21:33:27] <PetefromTn> Holy crap that is amazing. Ya sure you are doing it right LOL
[21:33:34] <zeeshan|2> they're definitely way less then 0.0005

[21:34:58] <zeeshan|2> ;[
[21:35:02] <zeeshan|2> i wish it was cat40

[21:35:24] <zeeshan|2> i have r8 er32 collets..
[21:35:27] <zeeshan|2> not cat40 holders

[21:37:06] <PetefromTn> yeah I know but he said that is what I have and I ASSUMED he was talking about the link I posted.
[21:37:15] <PetefromTn> Do you have those Cat40 holders?
[21:37:32] <CaptHindsight> it sure beats having to grind/cut off the old tool and weld in a new one :)
[21:38:15] <PetefromTn> Is that a yes?
[21:38:33] <CaptHindsight> we have cat40, bt40 and r8 versions

[21:39:08] <Swapper_> BT30 ER32 that is
[21:40:07] <PetefromTn> Interesting... Did you get it already>
[21:40:32] <Swapper_> yea got it, looks nice but havent tried it yet since my new mill isnt done.
[21:40:37] <PetefromTn> I need to order some collets too..
[21:40:58] <PetefromTn> Chuck that bad boy up there and throw a DTI on it LOL..
[21:42:06] <Swapper_> hehe the millinghead is on the floor with crappy bearings :)
[21:42:15] <Swapper_> would not be a good measurment
[21:44:23] <PetefromTn> meh that sucks...
[21:47:04] <PetefromTn> What do you guys recommend for a holder assortment LOL? Trying to decide..
[21:47:16] <Swapper_> you mean ER wise?
[21:47:25] <PetefromTn> Yeah...
[21:47:38] <Swapper_> im running 2 sets ER16 and one set ER32
[21:47:48] <Swapper_> pure hobby use though
[21:47:57] <PetefromTn> I was thinking I would get the five holder set of ER32's and maybe one ER20
[21:48:28] <Swapper_> The ER16 are nice since thres less in the way of coolant flow
[21:48:47] <Swapper_> ER32 i use for 10mm and bigger endmills only
[21:49:05] <Swapper_> guess ER20 would work nice to
[21:49:20] <Swapper_> But i have a HF spindle that take ER16 therefore i ran with that
[21:49:31] <PetefromTn> Coolant flow is NOT a problem LOL this machine is a freakin' deluge.
[21:50:11] <PetefromTn> I suppose it would be nice to have the smaller ones for tinier endmills and cutters tho..
[21:50:15] <Swapper_> Any thaught on getting a HF spindle ANY time the consider ER16, not that many ER20 HF spindles available
[21:50:24] <PetefromTn> I already have some ER20 collets tho just a few.
[21:50:36] <Swapper_> you can get a mix also ?
[21:50:56] <Swapper_> use the ER20 collets for 2-3 holdes for those sizes ?
[21:51:04] <PetefromTn> Was considering getting ALL ER32 and a large selection of collets and use my endmill holders for the smaller stuff.
[21:51:18] <Swapper_> you probably will end upp having tools in all holders.
[21:51:34] <PetefromTn> That's what I am hoping... HATE swapping tools in holders.
[21:51:40] <Swapper_> its a pain
[21:51:43] <PetefromTn> What kinda machine do you have?
[21:52:03] <Swapper_> atm im running a modified X2 with a servo as spindle
[21:52:20] <Swapper_> Bulding conversion parts for a RF45 "XL" version
[21:52:35] <Swapper_> its some beifier version of the RF
[21:52:45] <PetefromTn> Nice.. Enjoyed my RF45... It has its faults but it was decent.
[21:52:48] <Swapper_> Sold as "Luna" here in sweden
[21:53:08] <Swapper_> the z is so big i can get a 2kw servo in there :)
[21:53:16] <Swapper_> and the y drive
[21:53:21] <PetefromTn> If I found one real cheap again I would buy it and use it as a manual machine alongside the VMC..
[21:53:36] <Swapper_> What are you running ?
[21:53:53] <PetefromTn> I had a 3HP three phase driven by a VFD and a custom built belt drive.
[21:54:04] <PetefromTn> whaddya mean?
[21:54:10] <Swapper_> whats your vmc ?
[21:54:12] <Swapper_> model
[21:54:52] <PetefromTn> http://imagebin.org/290359
[21:54:59] <PetefromTn> Cincinatti Arrow 500..
[21:55:04] <Swapper_> will run a 2kw servo as spindle, 1:1 hoping to get enough power for my needs.
[21:55:20] <Swapper_> aow nice one
[21:55:36] <PetefromTn> Not bad...
[21:55:48] <PetefromTn> It works pretty good now that I retrofitted it.
[21:55:48] <Swapper_> are you running it professionaly ?
[21:55:58] <PetefromTn> Still working on the toolchanger tho.
[21:56:03] <PetefromTn> TRYING TO LOL
[21:56:45] <Swapper_> guess its not that easy to make all the logic for a toolchanger
[21:56:59] <Swapper_> planing on doing it in linuxcnc or outside ?
[21:57:43] <PetefromTn> Honestly I don't think it is that bad but I need to get the damn spindle encoder installed and wired up and that needs a custom bracket that I have yet to machine. Much of the toolchanger functions are already input into the Mesa cards...
[21:57:51] <PetefromTn> All LinuxCNC..
[21:58:13] <zeeshan|2> http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p252/turbozee84/circuit_zpsb989d1eb.png
[21:58:16] <zeeshan|2> will this work?
[21:58:33] <zeeshan|2> even though the vfd is putting out +12v from di6
[21:58:35] <Swapper_> PetefromTn: so there where not encoder on the stock machine ?
[21:58:38] <zeeshan|2> as long as i have some resistor before pin 10
[21:58:45] <zeeshan|2> this works? :P
[21:58:48] <Swapper_> how did it orient the spindle ?
[21:58:54] <PetefromTn> No the stock machine used a resolver...
[21:59:09] <Swapper_> ahh ok
[21:59:23] <PetefromTn> It also has several switches for orient and a half moon ring to time the motor with.
[22:00:08] <Swapper_> will you be closing the spindle loop in linuCNC to ?
[22:00:18] <Swapper_> with the encoder
[22:02:15] <PetefromTn> yeah.. The whole machine is closed loop and running on single phase I might add LOL.
[22:03:03] <Swapper_> guess thats some serius amperage then :)
[22:03:25] <PetefromTn> Meh it is running off a 60 amp breaker and has never popped it.
[22:03:36] <Swapper_> we have 3phase 400v here in residential.
[22:03:48] <PetefromTn> nice..
[22:03:57] <Swapper_> but have read that the us is a lot of 1ph ?
[22:04:26] <Swapper_> standard is 110v right ? 220 for high consumers?
[22:04:32] <PetefromTn> I WAS Running off a rotary but it is now single phase so if I move I don't have to worry about powering it.
[22:04:59] <PetefromTn> Standard is 220v household current and they take off the 110v for lighting and wall sockets etc.

[22:16:34] <Swapper_> yea it is
[22:17:28] <Swapper_> and its 400v so i think a normaly fused home (like mine) can pull 11kw
[22:17:34] <ChuangTzu_> does it actually get used much then? in washing machines?
[22:18:03] <Swapper_> stoves, washing machines, heating
[22:18:20] <ChuangTzu_> the idea of a 3ph stove seems strange to me
[22:18:30] <Swapper_> and simply split the 3 phases againt ground and you get 240v
[22:19:13] <Swapper_> my lathe is 3ph 400v but only like 1kw
[22:19:25] <Swapper_> the compressor is 3ph
[22:19:28] <Swapper_> 4kw
[22:19:52] <Swapper_> and its fused 16Amps

[22:20:50] <Swapper_> since the amperage is so big?
[22:20:51] <ChuangTzu_> only double the current

[22:21:13] <Swapper_> more copper?
[22:21:18] <Swapper_> more expensive ? :)
[22:21:20] <ChuangTzu_> yeah
[22:21:38] <zeeshan|2> swapper the idea is you can survive a shock from a 240v line
[22:21:46] <ChuangTzu_> but change is expensive too i guess
[22:21:49] <zeeshan|2> but you pretty much are guaranteed to die if touching live 400v line
[22:22:15] <zeeshan|2> that being said, i perfer 600V line ;p
[22:22:17] <ChuangTzu_> that was the idea, but i'm not sure there's much validity to it
[22:22:21] <Swapper_> thats why almost all homes have eath protection breakers here
[22:22:43] <zeeshan|2> swapper yes those are awesome :)
[22:23:15] <Swapper_> its promoted in insurance reduction
[22:23:23] <Swapper_> if you have it installed
[22:24:31] <Swapper_> But to get 400v you need to get between the phases, so normal wall sockets is onlu 240

[22:26:16] <ChuangTzu_> yeah, that's similar to why our outlets are 110

[22:28:49] <zeeshan|2> pretty please!
[22:29:02] <PetefromTn> what is your problem?
[22:29:13] <zeeshan|2> i need to confirm if my logic is correct
[22:29:17] <zeeshan|2> and ihaven't overlooked something
[22:29:18] <zeeshan|2> http://i130.photobucket.com/albums/p252/turbozee84/circuit_zpscfc6a794.png
[22:29:47] <zeeshan|2> DI6 outputs +12V which goes through an e-stop switch which is normally closed, and the charge pump relay which is normally closed
[22:29:54] <PetefromTn> Man nobody is gonna be able to help you without knowing the actual boards and components used.
[22:30:05] <zeeshan|2> this is pure logic stuff
[22:30:12] <PetefromTn> is this theoretical?
[22:30:20] <zeeshan|2> i guess so lol
[22:30:41] <zeeshan|2> so if i trip the e-stop or charge pump relay, then the circuit loop will open and throw the vfd in "fault mode"
[22:31:03] <zeeshan|2> the second circuit you see shows +5v going to a normally open contact on the vfd. that contact only closes if there is a fault
[22:31:15] <PetefromTn> Honestly it depends on the VFD...
[22:31:33] <zeeshan|2> man i wish this fucking vfd outputted +5v instead of +12v
[22:31:41] <zeeshan|2> thats the whole problem and not allowing me to keep all my switches in series.
[22:31:50] <Swapper_> the vfd contact should be pulled low when the drive is happy
[22:31:55] <PetefromTn> My view of E-stop is that no matter what happens you get an estop and the power is killed to everything..
[22:31:57] <Swapper_> then if the drive dies the estop kicks
[22:32:39] <PetefromTn> I would put the VFD on a contactor that is controlled by your estop circuit and then if you get an estop it will be killed.
[22:32:59] <PetefromTn> I mean an external contactor.
[22:34:23] <Loetmichel> PetefromTn:sometimes it can make sens to let the vfds brake first and then power off
[22:34:33] <zeeshan|2> Loetmichel: exactly
[22:34:35] <zeeshan|2> thats how i want it it
[22:34:38] <Swapper_> yea controled stop
[22:34:40] <Swapper_> then kill
[22:34:44] <zeeshan|2> thats how it is right now
[22:34:49] <Swapper_> but that requiers some logic
[22:35:13] <PetefromTn> Personally I will take an absolute power kill over logic and brakiing any day.
[22:35:15] <zeeshan|2> the problem is the circuit that completes that loop is 12v
[22:35:24] <Loetmichel> in german machines ther is a special relais for that
[22:35:32] <Swapper_> There are three categories of Stop functions:
[22:35:32] <Swapper_> Category 0: Shut down by immediate switch-off of the supply of energy to the
[22:35:32] <Swapper_> drive machinery (i.e. an uncontrolled shut-down)
[22:35:32] <Swapper_> Category 1: A controlled shut-down, during which the supply of energy to the
[22:35:32] <Swapper_> drive machinery is maintained to perform the shut-down, and where
[22:35:34] <Swapper_> the supply is only interrupted when standstill has been reached
[22:35:36] <Loetmichel> that handles all estop-related stuff
[22:35:37] <Swapper_> Category 2: A controlled shut-down, wh
[22:35:41] <Swapper_> Category 2: A controlled shut-down, where the supply of energy to the drive
[22:35:42] <Swapper_> machinery is maintained
[22:35:43] <Loetmichel> like door switches and so on

[22:35:59] <Loetmichel> and can also delay a circuit for safe braking
[22:36:05] <zeeshan|2> my e-stop puts the vfd in fault mode only.
[22:36:22] <zeeshan|2> to remove power from the vfd, i have a disconnect switch which also has an aux contact
[22:36:30] <PetefromTn> My drives have two power inputs. main power to the drives and logic power. When the power is killed logic power is maintained.
[22:36:34] <Loetmichel> i.e: estop pressed_ send emergency brake to the vfds, wait a few secs, kill the main switch
[22:36:37] <zeeshan|2> which also puts the vfd in fault mode a few ms earlier prior to removing power from vfd

[23:41:41] <seb_kuzminsky> i'm using hss end mills, .250 diameter
[23:41:53] <seb_kuzminsky> ~75 SFM, ~0.0015 ipt chip load
[23:42:23] <seb_kuzminsky> i'm cutting mostly dry, with a bit of wd40 more out of habit than for any real reason
[23:42:28] <seb_kuzminsky> mostly deep slots
[23:42:59] <seb_kuzminsky> my depth of cut is 0.025
[23:43:15] <seb_kuzminsky> does that all seem reasonable? what can i do to extend tool life?
[23:43:48] <Tom_itx> annealed kinda sucks to mill
[23:44:00] <Tom_itx> carbide would be best really
[23:44:25] <Tom_itx> chipload is a bit light unless the mill won't take it
[23:44:52] <zeeshan|2> what material end mill?
[23:44:53] <seb_kuzminsky> carbide, mm yes
[23:44:58] * seb_kuzminsky strokes beard thoughtfully
[23:45:03] <Tom_itx> wd40 isn't a coolant or cutting fluid
[23:45:13] <seb_kuzminsky> the endmill is high speed steel :-/
[23:45:16] <zeeshan|2> you're killing carbide end mills?
[23:45:18] <Tom_itx> at least use motor oil :)
[23:45:22] <zeeshan|2> oh
[23:45:26] <zeeshan|2> your sfm is too high
[23:45:27] <Tom_itx> no he's using hss
[23:45:41] <zeeshan|2> slow down to 500 rpm
[23:45:43] <ChuangTzu_> yeah, that's the point of carbide end mills
[23:45:43] <ChuangTzu_> :)
[23:46:12] <Tom_itx> 500rpm in annealed aluminum?? seriously?
[23:46:20] <seb_kuzminsky> it's annealed 5160
[23:46:24] <zeeshan|2> its steel
[23:46:25] <zeeshan|2> dude
[23:46:35] <seb_kuzminsky> 500 rpm would be 33 sfm, that seems low
[23:46:38] <zeeshan|2> 5160 is a common blade making steel
[23:46:47] <Tom_itx> err yeah.. my head is in the books right now.. sry
[23:47:02] <Tom_itx> chip load is ok then
[23:47:12] <Tom_itx> 4 flute would be better than 2
[23:47:21] <seb_kuzminsky> zeeshan|2: would you run carbide through 5160 at 33 sfm?
[23:47:25] <zeeshan|2> hell no
[23:47:31] <zeeshan|2> i'd shoot that thing to 150 sfm
[23:47:32] <zeeshan|2> :)
[23:47:34] <seb_kuzminsky> i'm using a 4-flute end mill, it'd take forever with a 2 flute
[23:47:37] <zeeshan|2> but with hss, you're limited
[23:47:38] <seb_kuzminsky> aha
[23:47:57] <seb_kuzminsky> ok, carbide 4-flute at 150 sfm, got it! now where's my enco discount code...
[23:48:18] <zeeshan|2> i hate spring steel
[23:48:18] <seb_kuzminsky> and still a chipload of .0015 inch?
[23:48:18] <zeeshan|2> :(
[23:48:19] <Tom_itx> don't just get one either
[23:48:28] <seb_kuzminsky> yeah, i'll buy a couple
[23:48:34] <Tom_itx> just a sec here...
[23:48:37] <seb_kuzminsky> amortize the shipping, dont stall production...
[23:49:15] <zeeshan|2> seb btw 150 sfm is on the bottom end
[23:49:17] <Tom_itx> http://zero-divide.net/index.php?page=fswizard&shell_id=199&load_tool_id=27011
[23:49:24] <zeeshan|2> if your machine is rigid i've seen 5xxx steel being machined at 350sfm
[23:49:26] <Tom_itx> that's a good site for figuring loads
[23:49:43] <seb_kuzminsky> thanks Tom_itx
[23:49:48] <zeeshan|2> Tom_itx: nice!
[23:49:53] <Tom_itx> you can download it too
[23:49:56] <seb_kuzminsky> and thanks zeeshan|2
[23:49:57] <zeeshan|2> excellent site
[23:49:59] <zeeshan|2> np
[23:50:04] <seb_kuzminsky> i'll know what to try for next time :-)

[23:51:00] <zeeshan|2> lol
[23:51:10] <zeeshan|2> i put int 6061 aluminum and .5 end mill
[23:51:11] <Tom_itx> http://www.onsrud.com/plusdocs/Doc/index.html?model.code=FeedSpeeds
[23:51:13] <Tom_itx> another handy one
[23:51:20] <zeeshan|2> it tells me i can machine at 650sfm
[23:51:22] <zeeshan|2> ;D
[23:51:32] <zeeshan|2> this site isn't conservative
[23:51:33] <zeeshan|2> i like
[23:52:00] <Tom_itx> indicates HP too
[23:52:25] <zeeshan|2> holy shit
[23:52:32] <zeeshan|2> thats at .875 depth of cut
[23:52:33] <zeeshan|2> haha
[23:52:40] <zeeshan|2> thats chip anhillation
[23:52:47] <Tom_itx> so if you don't got the HP don't cut that fast
[23:52:54] <zeeshan|2> this can't be right dude
[23:53:09] <zeeshan|2> .875 doc , hss steel .5" end mill 2 flute in 1018 steel
[23:53:20] <zeeshan|2> its saying 1143 rpm 4.54ipm feed
[23:53:26] <zeeshan|2> 0.3 hp
[23:53:43] <zeeshan|2> i'd prolly break something
[23:53:46] <Tom_itx> better have the cnc bolted to the floor
[23:53:59] <zeeshan|2> hehe
[23:56:03] <zeeshan|2> im almost done all my virtual wwiring
[23:56:04] <zeeshan|2> woohoo
[23:57:18] <zeeshan|2> something tells me figuring out the wirting for the vfd control board
[23:57:21] <zeeshan|2> is going to be a pain
