[02:17:48] <Connor> zeeshan: 1/4" PVC Commonly used by sign shops.
[02:18:09] <zeeshan> not worried about embedding chips in it
[02:18:12] <zeeshan> ?
[02:18:24] <Connor> No.
[02:18:39] <Connor> Will be running flood.
[02:18:47] <Connor> also, mostly do aluminum.
[02:19:12] -!- qingpei has quit [Quit: qingpei]
[02:19:41] <Connor> Never had a chip come off that hot before..

[02:21:10] <Connor> jdh: No.
[02:21:39] <Connor> Tiny a$$ belt
[02:21:50] <jdh> yeah. kind of pricey w/ shipping.
[02:21:55] <zeeshan> connor
[02:22:00] <zeeshan> my chips come off golden or blue
[02:22:00] <zeeshan> lol
[02:22:12] <Connor> zeeshan: Mill or lathe ?
[02:22:20] <zeeshan> i typically wear a plastic shield on top of my safety glasses when face milling
[02:22:27] <zeeshan> and chips get stuck in my shield
[02:22:27] <zeeshan> lol
[02:22:33] <zeeshan> but im not using coolant
[02:22:34] <Connor> damn..
[02:22:40] <Connor> Steel ?
[02:22:42] <zeeshan> yes
[02:22:53] <Connor> See.. again, mostly aluminum.
[02:22:54] <zeeshan> aluminum chips cool down pretty quick
[02:23:50] <zeeshan> how much is a sheet of PVC?
[02:23:57] <zeeshan> (ive never bought some before)
[02:24:19] <jdh> mcmaster sells it
[02:24:24] <Connor> I spent $80.00 or for both the 4x8 PVC and 4x8 Lexan
[02:24:29] <Connor> or so..
[02:24:37] <Connor> have 1/4 sheet of both left.
[02:24:52] <zeeshan> jdh im in canada
[02:24:58] <zeeshan> mcmaster doesnt ship here
[02:25:05] <zeeshan> but i do know a local plastics supplier, just never inquired about it
[02:25:12] <Connor> jdh: Trying to figure out how they made that mod so the quill still works.
[02:25:13] <zeeshan> but it looks like a good material alternative to aluminum
[02:25:41] <jdh> alternative for what?
[02:27:42] <Connor> jdh: Okay, I see now.. it's fitted over the hub. and held in place by the 2 screws..
[02:28:11] <Connor> instead of driving the quill direct..
[02:28:36] <jdh> yeah. that motor looks pretty weak. more so than the belt
[02:29:15] <Connor> 370 Watt Rated / 110 watt over current with max of 30min run time..
[02:31:17] <Connor> jdh: You see? http://www.ivdc.com/cnc/mill_03_03_14_01.jpg

[02:32:04] <Connor> FYI, the left door won't close with the table in current position.. I need to send the table back a few inches..
[02:32:23] <Connor> Knew I might have that issue.. But, I couldn't make the enclosure any deeper..
[02:32:42] <Connor> I'll probably be wishing I had at some point..
[02:33:11] <jdh> you need to engrave a faceplate for the spindle housing
[02:33:21] <Connor> I'm going to.
[02:33:32] <Connor> I need to get it back up and running.
[02:34:00] <jdh> I'm thnking a Gothic font G0704 arched across the top... and a pic of Hoss below that.
[02:34:12] <Connor> Umm.. Hells no.
[02:34:53] -!- FreezingCold has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
[02:35:37] <Connor> Probably end up wishing I did something different on the coolant part too.. Not sure my little setup is going to work.
[02:35:59] <Connor> wimpy pump, small reservoir.
[02:37:10] <Connor> I used a Tidy Cat littler bucket.. I think it was around 3 gallons.
[02:37:25] <Connor> Fits in the base of the stand.
[02:38:38] <jdh> the base isn't good for much anything else.
[02:39:00] <jdh> the stand is better than nothing, but too short.

[02:44:38] <PetefromTn_> Jeez man I cannot seem to export a .dxf from Freecad for some reason and not getting any help on their IRC tonight. About to chuck this laptop out the damn window LOL...
[02:45:04] <humble_sea_bass> what other formats do you have available
[02:45:07] <humble_sea_bass> for export
[02:45:34] <PetefromTn_> aah I dunno it seems like there is something missing in my import and export setup on the windows version I use.
[02:45:52] <humble_sea_bass> this is a solid you got?
[02:45:53] <humble_sea_bass> 3
[02:46:02] <humble_sea_bass> and you want 2d?
[02:46:07] <PetefromTn_> Got a link to a .dxf service python module you need to have and my computer did not have it.
[02:46:10] <PetefromTn_> yeah.
[02:46:35] <humble_sea_bass> can you spit out iges
[02:46:50] <PetefromTn_> I downloaded it and put it where it says in the user app data for freecad and it still does nothing. My pal Art tried it on his and it did not work for him either.
[02:46:59] -!- toner has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[02:47:35] <PetefromTn_> yeah probably but I don't want to play the damn musical software dance I need to be able to do it from freecad like it is supposed to work and apparently works for the linux guys..
[02:47:56] <humble_sea_bass> dat dang windows
[02:48:19] -!- mablae has quit [Ping timeout: 244 seconds]
[02:48:19] <PetefromTn_> that's the problem with freecad and even linuxCNC windows is the last to be supported for everything...
[02:48:39] <humble_sea_bass> there is a linuxcnc for windows
[02:48:40] <humble_sea_bass> what
[02:48:41] <PetefromTn_> found another feature the other night that was only working in linux..
[02:49:10] <PetefromTn_> I mean by the developers...
[02:49:46] <PetefromTn_> Don't mind me I am just really pissed off right now...

[03:58:24] <somenewguy> anyone using loc line for just air?
[03:58:42] <os1r1s> somenewguy: I am
[03:58:49] <somenewguy> I am drillig alot of acrylic and need some dedicated cooling, I think air would be plenty
[03:59:10] <somenewguy> any good pointers on what I should get? most seems to be aimed towards flood type
[03:59:27] <os1r1s> Get the small 1/4" loc-line
[03:59:32] <os1r1s> I think its 1/4
[03:59:34] <somenewguy> I currently ahve 0 anythingon mymill, its just a mini desktop mill
[03:59:40] <os1r1s> And get a flow control from harbor freight
[03:59:43] <somenewguy> yeah 1/4is the smallest, I figured its probably what I want
[03:59:54] <somenewguy> oh cool, I didn't evne thinkto checkthem yet
[04:00:00] <somenewguy> also sorry about my space bar, its driving me nuts
[04:00:38] <somenewguy> do yo uneed a specific end to the hose? I don't want my compressor running full tilt if possible
[04:00:49] <os1r1s> 1 sec
[04:01:00] <somenewguy> but I would think a nozzle meant for fluid might flow too slowly
[04:01:02] <somenewguy> kk
[04:03:29] <os1r1s> Can't find a pic
[04:03:48] <os1r1s> There are a number of diff ends you can use
[04:04:43] <somenewguy> ok
[04:05:01] <somenewguy> maybe you can riddle me this? littlemachineshop sells two different kits w/ a huge price gap
[04:05:07] <os1r1s> somenewguy: http://gallery.mounicou.com/photos/i-kHTqqVn/0/L/i-kHTqqVn-L.jpg
[04:05:09] <somenewguy> maybe you can spot why? Isure can't otherthanthecheap hose
[04:05:36] <somenewguy> is that ur mill? Ithought you had a big bridgeport
[04:05:54] <os1r1s> somenewguy: No. That is one of mine.
[04:05:56] <somenewguy> gotta put my taig in a box...
[04:06:00] <os1r1s> I don't have a bridgeport
[04:06:29] <os1r1s> somenewguy: Its now a shertaig
[04:06:30] <os1r1s> :P

[04:07:12] <os1r1s> ?

[04:07:35] <somenewguy> two very similar items, one has a nicer hose and manifold, but there is 100bucks difference in kits
[04:07:48] <os1r1s> somenewguy: I think this cost me $15
[04:08:13] <somenewguy> all HF sourced? I ahve a local brick and mortar I can hit up after work tomorrwo
[04:08:24] <somenewguy> finally got ear plugs so i canfire up the compressor again
[04:08:34] <os1r1s> somenewguy: The loc-line came remotely. The other stuff is HD sourced
[04:08:48] <os1r1s> hf
[04:08:58] <somenewguy> cool, gotta make amcmaster order anyways
[04:09:26] <somenewguy> 9 bucks a foot I can live with
[04:09:49] <os1r1s> somenewguy: Did this too http://gallery.mounicou.com/photos/i-jvTRhSX/0/L/i-jvTRhSX-L.jpg
[04:10:18] <somenewguy> you got the file?
[04:10:24] <somenewguy> STL I mean
[04:10:32] <somenewguy> I need to test my new extruder body anyways
[04:10:42] <os1r1s> I do somewhere. I modeled it ... simple enough ...
[04:10:59] <somenewguy> yeah but im laaaaazzzyyyyy
[04:11:25] <somenewguy> does it actually work ok?
[04:12:51] <os1r1s> It was ok, but I wound up using the purchased stuff anyway
[04:13:31] <somenewguy> http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:17021
[04:13:56] <somenewguy> yeah I'll just buy it anyways, we all know itwillshake and shudder its way into the wayseventually
[04:14:45] <somenewguy> do you do mist w/ ur setup, or is it strictly air?
[04:14:50] <os1r1s> Just air
[04:15:10] <os1r1s> That one on tverse sucked
[04:22:46] <somenewguy> oh yeah? I should just buy and be done...
[04:22:58] <somenewguy> my motor blew up on mycar, and isall overthe bench, realllly gotta finish that project first
[04:24:15] <somenewguy> random question, do youknow the inductance on those taig motors? I desperatly wantto go to a 48 v supply forfasterrapids, but don't wanna toast anything

[04:32:40] <Gamma-X> check the logs... been around a while ;)
[04:33:18] <somenewguy> is your millnot a taig?
[04:33:31] <Gamma-X> negative!
[04:33:41] <somenewguy> the steppers, I understand there is a rough upper limit on voltage based on inductance
[04:33:49] <somenewguy> but I have no clue what the inductance is on the steppers
[04:34:02] <Gamma-X> u build urself?
[04:34:04] <somenewguy> I like my taig, and it was cheap

[04:34:10] <somenewguy> no, bought it second hand
[04:34:16] <somenewguy> it was a CNC tho from the start
[04:34:23] <Gamma-X> what brand motor?
[04:34:25] <Gamma-X> what size
[04:34:30] <somenewguy> no tags onthem waht so ever
[04:34:35] <os1r1s> somenewguy: I bought a 2019 and added my own motors
[04:34:36] <somenewguy> 200 oz-in iirc
[04:34:55] <somenewguy> haha I thought you said you bought it in 2019 andgot really confused there
[04:35:50] <somenewguy> yeah, 200oz-in motors
[04:36:08] <somenewguy> oh I'll bring in my 4th axis to work andsee if i can find a henry meter?
[04:36:11] <somenewguy> inductormeter?
[04:36:15] <somenewguy> henrometer?
[04:36:29] <Gamma-X> multi
[04:36:53] <somenewguy> multi rarely/nevercovers inductance, there must be a special namefor em
[04:38:01] <somenewguy> os1r1s: any chance you have a sherline 4th axis? still trying to figure out how to hold things to mine, short of making adapter plates
[04:38:06] <os1r1s> somenewguy: I do
[04:38:13] <somenewguy> maybe if you had a picof something jigged up in yours it would spark my brain
[04:38:18] <os1r1s> somenewguy: And I use it
[04:38:23] <somenewguy> show off
[04:38:27] <somenewguy> lol
[04:38:35] <Gamma-X> i picked up a pm45.
[04:38:39] <Gamma-X> conveted it.
[04:38:44] <os1r1s> somenewguy: Lot of stuff here ... http://os1r1s.com
[04:38:57] <somenewguy> I have yet to use mine, but I currently have a project that will probably need it, oringing some pumps
[04:38:58] <Gamma-X> got it for like 1500!
[04:42:41] <somenewguy> os1r1s: I have a feeling i just lost any sleep i was gonna get tonight tour site
[04:42:50] <os1r1s> hehe
[04:42:58] <somenewguy> Gamma-X: Igot my whole setup for like 800, so I am not about to complain
[04:44:18] <Gamma-X> thats a good deal!
[04:46:00] <somenewguy> I later found out, yes, yes it is
[04:46:07] <somenewguy> it had lived a bit of a neglected life tho
[04:46:21] <Gamma-X> why?
[04:46:28] <somenewguy> there was like 50+thou slop in the Z axis, I suspected the worst
[04:46:44] <Gamma-X> anyway to clean up?
[04:46:47] <somenewguy> but after an afternoon rebuild, it is super tight and you can barely tell there is wear
[04:46:49] <Gamma-X> in the z?
[04:46:56] <somenewguy> I think the guy who had it before me was incompetent
[04:46:56] <Gamma-X> ahh ok great
[04:47:04] <somenewguy> so fortunatly it was probably not wear, but just neglect
[04:47:23] <somenewguy> there is no noticable differnce in drag on the x and y axis in the middle vs the ends
[04:47:23] <Gamma-X> all my stuff is in the box truck gettin ready for the move :(
[04:47:42] <somenewguy> the Z is tight at the extreemes, so it has deffinitly been used, but not as much as I initially feared
[04:47:52] <Gamma-X> when I get back im gonna get another cnc, supermax or something.
[04:48:17] <somenewguy> os1r1s: you have a MM1.5? I have a 1.5+j
[04:48:37] <somenewguy> come to think of it, I konw ur name from the reprap channel, not this one...
[04:48:40] <somenewguy> IRC is a small world

[04:53:46] <Connor> os1r1s: Send me one! :)
[04:54:24] <os1r1s> Connor: haha
[04:54:56] <somenewguy> My dad teaches highschool math and CAD, I helped em build a cupcake back when I was in college and drooling over those kits
[04:55:35] <somenewguy> now I have a MM1.5+, and they just bought a replicator 2x? like a week ago, I'm kindadrooling over it, I'm sure I'll get a call from him to help w/ setup soon enough
[04:55:58] <somenewguy> have you used a maxstruder?
[04:56:30] <os1r1s> somenewguy: Yes
[04:57:23] <somenewguy> and it worked for you with 1.75? I am havinga nightmare of it
[04:57:39] <somenewguy> I actually just machined down the drive hobb since the idler kept bottoming out and loosing tension
[04:58:38] <somenewguy> I was actually about to re-work my original aluminum body MM extruder body to accept the motor from the maxstruder andcall it good, but I think shaving down the hobb might fix the problem
[04:58:51] <somenewguy> these things are so much fun and so frustrating all at once
[04:59:17] <os1r1s> somenewguy: 1.75 is no problem at all with it
[05:00:03] <somenewguy> hmmm, I'll have to fire it up tomorrow (or tonight) and see if i fixed it or not
[05:00:15] <os1r1s> making it deeper will make it worse
[05:00:21] <somenewguy> I madeit shallower
[05:00:31] <os1r1s> k
[05:00:36] <somenewguy> milled off about .015 of the OD
[05:00:54] <somenewguy> the tapped groove on the maxstruder was a bit deeper than all my other drives
[05:01:21] <somenewguy> had fun milling a jig to hole the thing still while I milled it
[05:01:36] <somenewguy> was VERY satisifying to make a hole the exact size I intended on the first go
[05:01:46] <somenewguy> how did I live before linuxcnc and my mill?
[05:02:09] * somenewguy looks over at dremel and files and ponders how he survived this long
[05:02:14] <os1r1s> hehe
[05:02:21] <os1r1s> I made acme nuts on my taig for my prusa2

[05:07:35] <os1r1s> somenewguy: The latest toy ... https://www.dropbox.com/s/55eie4v96d0i66c/IM150B.jpg
[05:08:11] <somenewguy> ok I konwwhat its not, but what isthat last one?
[05:08:43] <somenewguy> and did you make all those toolholders, or are they commercial? I am building a touchoff rig for the taig, but damn its gonna be a lot of work
[05:08:43] <os1r1s> somenewguy: https://www.dropbox.com/s/jdvrshuywphrgob/imlure.jpg
[05:08:45] <somenewguy> both to make and to code
[05:09:12] <somenewguy> oohhhhh
[05:09:32] <somenewguy> way cool
[05:09:45] <os1r1s> somenewguy: I did this for touching off ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGmc9L3pSHw
[05:09:59] <os1r1s> Well, that is part of it
[05:13:10] <somenewguy> oh I mean the reverse
[05:13:22] <os1r1s> Yeah, so that has 3 plugs on it
[05:13:22] <somenewguy> tool touchoff, toset tool length sicne Idon't use too holders
[05:13:33] <somenewguy> although I do really really wantto makeadigitizing probetoo
[05:14:23] <os1r1s> That one serves as the probe and one other serves as the tool length setter
[05:15:36] <os1r1s> somenewguy: The idea was only to use 1 pin on my controller, but be able to use 3 different boards, active or passive

[13:47:17] <Jymmm> Well, She was renovating the entire home, so he ate the cost of the cabinets to future jobs for her.
[13:47:22] <PetefromTn_> Cabinets are custom designed, customer pays large deposit usually more than half , custom cabinets are built and installed. If they don't like them (almost never happens) they pay to buy more and uninstall.
[13:48:03] <PetefromTn_> Customer and designer work closely together to ensure what is installed is what the customer wanted.
[13:48:05] <Zaarin> Hi guys! I got some big gears and a giant starter motor from the scrapheap, the gears are the same MOD and mesh nicely, quick question, do you guys feel I should take the pinion off and put it on the neighbouring NEMA 34 or keep the existing behemeoth motor, if b, how do I wire it up to the arduino? Here are some photos of it: http://i.imgur.com/p6yUTLz.png
[13:48:05] <Zaarin> http://i.imgur.com/5jTrIqS.png
[13:48:08] <CaptHindsight> a decent person would expect that
[13:48:21] <PetefromTn_> Often full blown 3d images are provided of the actual design.
[13:48:35] <CaptHindsight> that's why you have to a clear contract plus the big deposit
[13:48:36] <Jymmm> Like I said, he ate the $16K for $400K in future jobs for her.
[13:48:53] <CaptHindsight> yeah, he can afford to eat it
[13:48:56] -!- i_tarzan [i_tarzan!~i_tarzan@] has joined #linuxcnc
[13:49:16] <PetefromTn_> We have done homes here with just cabinet installs that were that much...
[13:49:27] <Jymmm> Not when you dont have the cash in yout pocket yet
[13:49:27] <archivist> Zaarin, have you calculated torque requirements first
[13:49:32] <PetefromTn_> Never saw anyone eat an install...
[13:49:54] <jdh> nor should they.
[13:50:10] <CaptHindsight> we don't let people poop on the sidewalk and we have other similar rules in place for the benefit of society yet we don't create any rules to deal with sociopaths and psychopaths
[13:50:14] <PetefromTn_> worst thing we saw was a customer showed us a picture of a rough sawn cabinet setup for a workout room lockers kinda thing.
[13:50:39] <PetefromTn_> it was sage green and the pictures looked nice.
[13:50:56] <PetefromTn_> We built it completely showing samples of the wood and finish before it was completed.
[13:51:09] <PetefromTn_> Once it was completed and installed the lady said she did not like the roughness...
[13:51:29] <PetefromTn_> She paid us to sand everything down on site and refinish it but we gave her a discount...
[13:52:23] <jdh> that sounds reasonable.
[13:52:24] <PetefromTn_> she was happy but we wound up eating a bunch of time on it due to the difficulty of sanding and finishing on scene. Yet it was easier than removing, bringing them back to the shop and refinishing and reinstalling.
[13:52:35] * cpresser doesnt like customers. for those reasons
[13:52:53] <CaptHindsight> that why you have to put all the risk on them
[13:53:05] <PetefromTn_> She did piss off the home build contractor tho. She had them custom order some special large lights handmade in Italy....
[13:53:26] <PetefromTn_> they were rather huge and apparently much larger than she thought.
[13:53:52] <CaptHindsight> my friends that were contractors used to go ching-ching whenever a customer would want to change anything
[13:54:01] <PetefromTn_> When they arrived she wanted to send them back but the contractor told here that was not possible since they were custom ordered. She pitched a big fit...
[13:54:11] <CaptHindsight> the ching-ching was the sound a cash register makes
[13:54:26] <PetefromTn_> I thought it was CHA-CHING..
[13:54:33] <PetefromTn_> ;)
[13:55:22] <CaptHindsight> PetefromTn_: we'll she was used to always getting her way and throwing a tantrum when she didn't
[13:55:22] <PetefromTn_> Wound up ordering new ones in the correct size and the contractor was able to sell them to another customer to put outside the house under a large overhang as walkway lighting.
[13:55:25] <Zaarin> How do I calculate it archivist? I know I'm dealing with a 4m skydish diameter, that has 74cm depth that weighs 400kg and probably will weigh significantly more once I cement loads of mirror tiles onto the dish, est about 600kg, I'm using 6mm thickness 100mm pipe as the central driveshaft/steamthroughput I'm using mod 3.0 gears I'm doing the best I can with what scrap I can pick up
[13:55:36] <CaptHindsight> that is called being a toddler
[13:55:37] <PetefromTn_> CaptHindsight Oh yeah...spoiled bitch....
[13:55:37] <Zaarin> Also I know the winds get to up to 100mph here
[13:56:17] <Zaarin> I figured, unless I rediculously step down the gearing, that NEMA34 won't handle the torque, guestimation
[13:56:29] <CaptHindsight> Zaarin: you live in a wind tunnel or NH?
[13:56:43] <PetefromTn_> Zaarin What the hell are you building?
[13:56:47] <archivist> Zaarin, you are going to need a reduction gear of some sort
[13:58:00] <Zaarin> Up in the mountains
[13:58:54] <Zaarin> I'm thinking little gear to big gear and weld the small gear on top of the medium gear, stick the pinion onto the bigger of the pair the smaller one onto the giant gear that is welded to the pipe
[13:59:05] <Zaarin> A Vanguard clone
[13:59:40] <archivist> heath robinson would approve, but will it work
[14:00:42] <Zaarin> I'm also concerned that once I weld the gears in place there will be warpage and the teeth will get stuck
[14:02:40] <archivist> weld a plate and bolt the gears to it
[14:02:48] <archivist> plate/flange

[17:43:30] <humble_sea_bass> this project is way behind schedule because they keep asking basic questions, like how to get gas service

[17:47:43] <Gamma-X> y u want to know?
[17:48:07] <jdh> so people and businesses can chose to buy gas/power/etc from siemens or nationalgrid?
[17:48:15] <Gamma-X> no
[17:48:48] <Gamma-X> dependant on location u buy from a another company... a broker if u will
[17:49:09] <Gamma-X> not directly from the creator
[17:49:10] <jdh> but, the broker won't come out and install a meter for you

[17:50:25] <Gamma-X> oh ok
[17:50:28] <PetefromTn_> Just another tactic in a long list of ways to screw you over on your power bill it sounds like to me..
[17:50:34] <humble_sea_bass> so you have exelon for example, who generates electricity, sells it to con edison, and in turn con edison delivers it to me. the delivery charge in nyc now costs more than the electricity
[17:50:54] <jdh> I was just wondering if this was typical utility monopoly dis-service since they have no incentive due to lack of competitino.
[17:51:12] <jdh> but, exelon r0cks
[17:51:28] <humble_sea_bass> which was not the case back in the day
[17:51:43] <Gamma-X> they actually try to keep the price low. instead of making the energy themselves, a lot of times they buy excess power from other near by power plants.

[18:59:35] <Connor> Yea.. he's hard to understand at times..
[19:00:10] <CaptHindsight> understand him not?
[19:00:54] <Connor> CaptHindsight: ROFL
[19:01:17] <Loetmichel> as a fellow german i think that the german grammar he builds his english sentences with is very funny ;-)
[19:01:48] <Connor> Loetmichel: Any time you can help translate is appreciated.. :)
[19:01:53] <CaptHindsight> that is mostly all it is
[19:02:34] <CaptHindsight> when they wrote the lines for Yoda they did the same thing, they used German grammar rules for English
[19:02:39] <Connor> might be better off with him typing German and running it through google translate.. :)
[19:03:02] -!- norbert has quit [Quit: Verlassend]
[19:03:03] <CaptHindsight> so the sentence structure is out of the usual order
[19:03:18] <Connor> I can understand Yoda.
[19:03:34] <Connor> He was missing key words in that sentence. :)
[19:03:37] <roycroft> german syntax is fun - you tease folks with all your objects and modifiers, and when enough suspense is built up you toss all the verbs in at the very end
[19:03:48] <jdh> connor: that is way too clean.
[19:03:54] * skunkworks is barely monolingual
[19:04:08] <Loetmichel> Connor: german grammar isnt that rigid as english
[19:04:30] <Connor> jdh: My Mill? Only because the mill was JUST installed into the enclosure. :)
[19:04:33] <roycroft> well, grammar is more rigid, but syntax is a lot looser because of the rigid grammar
[19:04:58] <jdh> I meant the walls/shelves also

[19:05:56] <Connor> That better? :)
[19:06:07] <jdh> yeah
[19:06:23] <Loetmichel> hrhr, obligatrory wd40 and duct tape ;-)
[19:06:24] <Connor> The shelves were cleaned off.. and stuff removed so I could move the shelve down...
[19:06:53] <Connor> That's painters tape, the duct tape is on the shelf above or hidden under crap.
[19:07:11] <skunkworks> I like the electric cauk gun - but the tube is in the manual one...
[19:07:25] <jdh> I'd be happy if I got my enclosure panel mounts done.
[19:07:52] <Connor> skunkworks The electric is good if your doing liquid nails or adhesives.. but, you loose the control and "feel" when caulking..
[19:08:18] -!- mhaberler has quit [Quit: mhaberler]
[19:08:26] <jdh> my caulking looks great except for the first and last 6 inches
[19:08:28] <Connor> I used it for about half of it.. and made a huge mess.. after switching back to the manual with the no drip..
[19:08:29] <_methods> you like to feel the caulk
[19:08:37] <_methods> hehe
[19:08:37] <Connor> it works better.
[19:09:16] <Connor> Caulking pushes every one of my OCD buttons..
[19:09:22] <jdh> CDO
[19:09:39] <Connor> Obsessive-compulsive disorder :)
[19:09:54] <jdh> but, the letters aren't ordered correctly your way.
[19:10:43] <jdh> I started milling the back drip edge off my Shars vise, but got bored and quit.
[19:11:37] <Connor> http://www.ivdc.com/cnc/mill_03_03_14_02.jpg you can see how much in hangs off in that picture.
[19:12:06] <Connor> I have enough room to add the 2" spacer between the base and column.. which I plan to do at some point.
[19:12:45] <jdh> do you have more travel behind the backjaw of teh vise that you are losing to the rim hitting the column?
[19:12:48] <_methods> just use strap clamps instead of the mounting ppoints
[19:13:21] <Connor> jdh: Yes.. and like _methods said.. I need to use strap clamps..
[19:13:33] <jdh> strap clamps?
[19:13:34] <Connor> just haven't bothered to do it.
[19:13:46] <Connor> standard hold down clamps..
[19:13:49] <_methods> more of a pain to square the vise
[19:13:56] <_methods> but you'll get that extra room back
[19:13:59] <Connor> _methods: EXACTLY which is why I've not done it.
[19:14:05] <_methods> hehe
[19:14:09] <jdh> oh. I've tried it that way. Still lost travel
[19:14:16] <_methods> put some locator pins in the bottom of the vise
[19:14:18] -!- mablae has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[19:14:31] <Connor> and mounting it on the first T slot.. causes issues too.
[19:14:59] <jdh> yep. getting rid of the rim would give me almost an inch I think.
[19:15:13] <Connor> http://www.tormach.com/store/index.php?app=ecom&ns=catshow&ref=multicat_cnc_vise
[19:15:16] <Connor> that's what I want.
[19:15:23] <jdh> it did force me to get better at just mounting on teh table though
[19:15:51] <jdh> I've ended up with some 1/4 and 3/8" 6061 plates I bolt too then clamp them down.
[19:15:51] <_methods> yeah i've got a nice little precision vise like that
[19:16:18] <Connor> I would have to mill another set of slots into the bottom so I could mount it using the pins.. which I'm not even doing on current vise right now.
[19:16:40] <Connor> 5" Is max size for that mill..
[19:16:47] <jdh> I have a little vise like that. I've only used it mounted in teh other vise
[19:16:49] <Connor> 4" was just too small to do some stuff I wanted.
[19:17:33] <_methods> yeah that's not a lot of real estate
[19:17:45] <jdh> I got some plastic shim stock I put between the work and the fixture plate.
[19:22:37] <Connor> My Shade cover idea.. works ok.. but.. when I get real low.. it can cause issues with the vise.. and If not using vise.. can cause issues with the table...
[19:24:22] <Connor> Thoughts anyone ?
[19:24:56] <Connor> Still not sure how it does on keeping chips off the ways... not used it enough to know.. I'm sure it'll do a bit better with coolant..
[19:25:34] <jdh> nice idea. looks bulky
[19:26:23] <Connor> Yea, that's the problem.
[19:26:24] <Connor> Way more shade than I need.
[19:26:24] <Connor> Lots of extra on it..
[19:26:38] <CaptHindsight> http://www.nacharmonicdrive.com/nhdce3.html their pricing for brand new off the shelf is similar to fleabay from Korea
[19:26:38] <CaptHindsight> anyone have a favorite harmonic drive supplier?
[19:26:44] <Connor> Don't recall the size of the angle either..
[19:27:17] <Connor> CaptHindsight: Watcha making ?
[19:27:51] <CaptHindsight> SCARA type arms for printers
[19:28:12] <Connor> I want to build a strong arm for my robot..
[19:28:17] <skunkworks> I have found - my caulk jobs look pretty darn good if you mask off each side. then use your thumb to bevel/level to the tape.
[19:28:44] <CaptHindsight> non-contact, fast and maybe 1Kg max loads
[19:29:01] <Connor> skunkworks Would have taken forever for me to do that.. OCD.. with tape! OMG.. I have 11 panels.. front and back.
[19:29:20] <skunkworks> heh
[19:29:32] <Connor> plus, I had to caulk the drip rails too.
[19:29:34] <Connor> under them..
[19:29:34] <skunkworks> probably applies to kitchen/bathroom work...
[19:29:40] <CaptHindsight> it's like taping compound, only wipe once
[19:29:50] <CaptHindsight> the more you mess with it the worse it gets
[19:30:40] <Connor> Yea.. I need to make the 2" spacer for the column, and 2" tombstone spacer for the head.
[19:31:21] <Connor> I thought about mounting the shade to the bottom of the head.. but, that wouldn't let me tilt it anymore.
[19:32:31] <humble_sea_bass> what's the shade for

[19:51:16] <CaptHindsight> harmonic drives are down to ~1 arc minute repeatability, the worm gear drives we rework are ~2 arc seconds
[19:52:07] <humble_sea_bass> Hind. who are you working for
[19:52:17] <Connor> CaptHindsight: Don't you mean higher accuracy ?
[19:52:24] <CaptHindsight> http://harmonicdrive.net/products/componentsets/csf-component/ bottom of page
[19:53:01] <CaptHindsight> Connor: nope the harmonic drives are less accurate
[19:53:19] <Connor> Really?
[19:53:40] <Connor> How is that possible.. no backlash with harmonic.. much higher gear ratio normally...
[19:55:32] <CaptHindsight> http://search.newport.com/?q=*&x2=sku&q2=RV160HAHLT
[19:55:52] <humble_sea_bass> that's nice
[19:56:03] <Connor> Damn.
[19:56:07] <Connor> thats $$$$
[19:56:36] <Connor> Yea.. like i was saying.. I want to build a arm for one of my robots..
[19:56:47] <humble_sea_bass> well let us appreciate the finer things which we are not getting
[19:57:12] <Connor> plan is to use power window motors, add a absolute encoder and a H-Bridge and turn them into a nice beefy servo.
[19:57:13] <CaptHindsight> depends on your loads as well
[19:57:44] <CaptHindsight> newport rotational stage maybe 8Nm, and a harmonic drive might be 200Nm
[19:58:08] <humble_sea_bass> you don't for honeybee do you
[19:58:49] <Connor> Probably use 3 of those, 2 for the shoulders, 1 for elbow.. I need some other types for wrist, forearm rotate, and arm twist..

[20:05:03] <PetefromTn_> I don't understand how a backlash free harmonic drive could possibly be less accurate than a worm gear drive. The positioning would be entirely up to the motor/servo setup...
[20:05:47] <CaptHindsight> PetefromTn_: it's everything else as well, the bearings the eccentricity of the housing etc etc
[20:06:22] <CaptHindsight> even how much will it flex under load?
[20:07:10] <PetefromTn_> yeah but you were talking about arc repeatability and accuracy...
[20:07:24] <CaptHindsight> but even the best robot arms are rated only down to 10-20um of repeatability
[20:07:57] <PetefromTn_> If they are not as accurate then why do most big machine tool companies build them into fourth axes and not worm gear driven units?
[20:08:13] <CaptHindsight> you could make a harmonic drive just as well as a worm drive
[20:08:25] <CaptHindsight> PetefromTn_: the loads
[20:09:17] <CaptHindsight> that newport is only rated for 8nm, the harmonic drive could be 300nm
[20:09:21] <PetefromTn_> so you are saying the load range limits of the harmonic drive units are higher?
[20:09:31] <CaptHindsight> yes
[20:09:55] <CaptHindsight> thats why cutting tools and robots use them
[20:10:05] <PetefromTn_> when I clicked on the newport link all I got was a page full of products..
[20:10:14] <CaptHindsight> but for non-contact we get better results with worms

[20:15:27] <humble_sea_bass> what about those boxing gloves that spring out from a gift box
[20:16:45] <PetefromTn_> Interesting... I would say you are working with worm gear rotaries that are CONSIDERABLY more precisely manufactured than the POS chinese rotaries most of us here would look at turning into a fourth axis...
[20:18:14] <humble_sea_bass> most chinese "precision" items are made to look precise, but I've found some amazing stuff
[20:18:21] <PetefromTn_> I saw a nice youtube video of a guy who made his own fourth axis for a Haas VMC using a larger harmonic drive unit. He machined the housing on the VMC...
[20:18:48] <humble_sea_bass> like 123 blocks that clearly had their rough edges hand ground
[20:18:56] <PetefromTn_> honestly for the low end market the words CHINESE and PRECISION should not be used in the same sentence..

[22:08:59] <PetefromTn_> There is a v- engrave plugin I wanted to play with and I downloaded it but cannot find out how to install it.
[22:09:42] <PetefromTn_> What happened to TomITX, have not seen him around for awhile...?
[22:09:44] <Connor> I thought CamBam supported V-engraving out of the box.
[22:10:01] <PetefromTn_> it does..just need the plugin I guess.
[22:10:37] <PetefromTn_> Besides they just changed some stuff that made it a lot better apparently and I wanted to look at it.

[22:15:34] <Connor> andypugh is here.. maybe he can answer.
[22:15:54] <andypugh> The answer is "halibut". What was the question?
[22:16:03] <Connor> andypugh: When / Why isn't there a jog while paused?
[22:16:19] <andypugh> Because it is difficult
[22:16:30] <Connor> I found this.. http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Jog-While-Paused, but, that's a fork...
[22:16:38] <DaViruz> the answer is 42, but what is the question?
[22:16:49] <Connor> Lots of stuff is hard.. but, has been implemented... :)
[22:16:50] <CaptHindsight> is that anything like cold heat and on while off?
[22:17:26] <Connor> and then they're is touch off while paused.. which.. apparently is even harder....
[22:18:55] <Connor> Surely if they can do it in Mach3 we can. :)
[22:19:08] <andypugh> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?WhyManualWhilePausedIsHard
[22:19:54] <andypugh> But as you have spotted, mah has managed to make it work to an extent.

[22:24:57] -!- i_tarzan [i_tarzan!~i_tarzan@] has joined #linuxcnc
[22:25:29] <Connor> I get the touch off problem.. honestly.. it would be good if you could touch off during TOOL CHANGE.. which, might make things easier ?
[22:26:19] <Connor> Since, they're shouldn't be any motions queued up after the tool change has been prompted...
[22:28:05] <andypugh> I have a feeling that it would have to wait until after a JA3 merge to prevent it all having to be done twice. And JA3 needs to have handwheel jogging sorted out before it can be merged. I was hoping that JA3 was a 2.6 feature, but I think it has been decided otherwise.
[22:30:04] <andypugh> I was meant to be re-writing all the tool table stuff too, which is a complication. I rather lost impetus on that though.
[22:30:20] * JT-Shop had to use the dozer, the tractor and almost cranked up the hoe to clean the snow and ice off the driveway
[22:31:18] <andypugh> Trees, flowers and birds think it is Spring here.
[22:31:37] <Tecan> see any groundhogs ?\
[22:33:22] <andypugh> No.
[22:33:28] <andypugh> But then, I never have.
[22:34:32] <andypugh> I don't even think I have ever seen a Marmot, other than stuffed.
[22:35:00] <PetefromTn_> I think that apparently since Jog and and toggle spindle and coolant on and off are relatively simpler maybe that would be a start in the right direction. Honestly touching off tools in pause while I could see the need for it and have done it in Mach3 before I really think is secondary to the other three for me at least.

[22:35:57] <PetefromTn_> I have had LOTS of occasions where I wanted to turn off the spindle or coolant while running to check progress etc. But if i gotta retouch off tools I would probably be wanting to do a run from here anyways which seems to work well the couple times I did it.
[22:36:25] <PetefromTn_> oh and jog away from the part to check things or move things etc...
[22:36:48] <andypugh> Jogging away to clear swarf is a very good use-case.

[22:37:47] <andypugh> Don't get me wrong, I think it is a useful feature, and something that _should_ be in LinuxCNC.
[22:38:10] <PetefromTn_> yeah or to remove pieces of drop etc...or just to have a looksee.
[22:38:20] <Loetmichel> ah, btw: "useful features"
[22:38:48] <Loetmichel> is it somehow possible to "teach in" a program in linuxCNC by moving the head with the keyboard?
[22:38:56] <PetefromTn_> I dunno about you but when my machine is running you can't see much of anything with the flood coolant and there have been many times I wanted to just switch off the flood so I could look while paused with the spindle running...
