[00:08:15] <cncformywife> do you want to see the rendering?
[00:08:28] <XXCoder2> whynt
[00:08:35] <XXCoder2> why not
[00:10:25] <cncformywife> http://i.imgur.com/EWuLtcI.jpg
[00:10:40] <XXCoder2> damn thats good rendering
[00:10:45] <XXCoder2> mine is crude lol
[00:11:16] <cncformywife> thnaks!
[00:11:49] <cncformywife> wherer is all the others?
[00:12:01] <cncformywife> thanks!*

[00:12:29] <XXCoder2> its bit out of date now
[00:12:36] <cncformywife> WTF?
[00:12:50] <XXCoder2> that and I might change design to be closer to http://hackaday.com/2014/07/11/400-diy-cnc-machine-is-surprisingly-simple/
[00:13:05] <Connor> cncformywife: Do yourself a favor.. don't use a Dremel..
[00:13:20] <XXCoder2> I use bosch trim router
[00:13:35] <XXCoder2> nice and powerful. it helps that it has bosch which is nice company
[00:13:46] <Connor> cncformywife: Also, I don't see any bearings on the screws...
[00:13:49] <cncformywife> i want to do small cuts..
[00:14:12] <Connor> cncformywife: Bosh Trim router is much better.. better runout.. longer lasting spindle.
[00:15:08] <cncformywife> i will start with the dremel.. and see how it works..
[00:15:21] <cncformywife> it's going to be my first cnc..
[00:15:24] <Connor> http://www.ivdc.com/cnc/cnc8.jpg
[00:15:27] <Connor> That was my first one.
[00:15:37] <Connor> http://www.ivdc.com/cnc/cnc1.jpg
[00:15:59] <jdh> it's Chai time
[00:17:06] <Connor> jdh: Got a $400.00 check from health insurance company for rebate.. splitting it with wife for our hobby accounts. :)
[00:17:06] <cncformywife> looks big!
[00:17:11] <jdh> I'm thinking of making a grid of blind T nuts in my spoilboard. Think that is worthwhile?
[00:17:27] <jdh> Connor: cool! My single nut screws were $199.
[00:17:28] <Connor> jdh Better than rails.
[00:17:50] <jdh> The table is aluminum T-slot
[00:17:56] <Connor> Oh.
[00:17:59] <Connor> Well..
[00:18:16] <jdh> but, I don't want to get a endmill that close to it.
[00:18:39] <andypugh> The hackaday design might be better with the Y slides under the gantry. Though they will defintely see more dust there, so it’s a trade-off.
[00:18:41] <Connor> cncformywife: 25" x 36" foot print. 18" x 12" x 4.5" work ennvelope
[00:19:19] <XXCoder2> heh mine will be pretty damn small
[00:19:28] <andypugh> Both the hackaday and rendered designs look like they could use more sway stiffness on the gantry.
[00:19:40] <XXCoder2> work area my guess 16"x16"x3"
[00:20:05] <XXCoder2> andypugh: you still havent provided a pic lol I can't picture it
[00:20:17] <cncformywife> the cnc in the render is 700X700 mm foot print, working - 500X500X100
[00:20:27] <andypugh> Give me a few minutes then
[00:20:38] <Connor> cncformywife: You might want to go with supported rails on the base.. and rotate them 90' so that channels appose each other..
[00:21:08] <Connor> those rods look awful small for the size of the gantry.
[00:21:40] <cncformywife> 12mm
[00:21:55] <XXCoder2> interesting, my cnc will have 20mm supported rails for z
[00:21:56] <Connor> yea. Mine are 12mm supported with 16mm ballscrews..
[00:21:56] <XXCoder2> err
[00:21:58] <XXCoder2> x
[00:22:14] <Connor> I would go up to the next size.. 12mm is kinda small for that span.
[00:22:35] <cncformywife> but it is only a dremell...
[00:22:53] <Tom_itx> don't use a dremel for a spindle
[00:22:56] <Connor> That's fine.. it's the weight of the entire gantry..
[00:22:57] -!- bertrik has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
[00:23:01] <XXCoder2> yeah
[00:23:07] <XXCoder2> well
[00:23:17] <XXCoder2> cncformywife: make rigid gantry and moving bed?
[00:23:39] <Connor> that's allot of wood. would be fine for a 3d printer if using lighter material.. but 12mm non supported is a bit on the light side for a cnc
[00:24:22] <cncformywife> i have here 10mm bar..
[00:24:30] <cncformywife> i cant bend it..
[00:24:40] <Tom_itx> sure you can
[00:24:54] <cncformywife> how?
[00:25:08] <Tom_itx> put a dial on the center of it supported on each end
[00:25:09] <Connor> and again, the screws needs some sort of bearing support.. you can't just use the coupler as a support like that.. not sure if you just didn't render it or not..
[00:25:10] <Tom_itx> and push
[00:25:28] <Tom_itx> you will measure deflection
[00:26:26] <Connor> cncformywife: Just my opinion.. for what it's worth..
[00:26:40] <Tom_itx> 2c ?
[00:27:04] <Connor> Tom_itx: Yea.. 2centers is about right..
[00:28:55] <cncformywife> to go to support rails is X2 כסף
[00:29:07] <cncformywife> to go to support rails is X2 money**
[00:29:42] <cncformywife> Connor: ^
[00:30:52] <Tom_itx> it's just money
[00:31:11] <Tom_itx> think of the big picture
[00:31:19] <Tom_itx> when it's all done and nice and rigid
[00:33:12] <cncformywife> the big picture is FOOD vs CNC ...
[00:33:22] <cncformywife> sorry i need also food..
[00:33:44] <XXCoder2> make food with cnc
[00:33:49] <andypugh> XXCoder2: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/nj1-xDnWcEBZy89Ym2hrPj6DPCNJV8hY0JQn7i_rlrM?feat=directlink
[00:33:53] <XXCoder2> nasa made food printer
[00:34:05] <XXCoder2> ahh
[00:34:32] <andypugh> I will send you an invoice at my normal rate..
[00:34:49] <XXCoder2> -$20 a second? accepted!
[00:35:28] <andypugh> But, you see my point>
[00:35:30] <andypugh> ?
[00:35:34] <XXCoder2> indeed
[00:35:46] <XXCoder2> prevents sway along y axis
[00:36:12] <XXCoder2> you saw my machine engine, it has two sides per sie
[00:36:39] <XXCoder2> its not shown but it would have connections between those 2 wood sides to make it can't move in respect to each other
[00:37:55] <andypugh> I have a different problem. I have a lot of siffness (500kg of iron) bit only 1000rpm spindle speed.
[00:38:13] <XXCoder2> thats good for steel
[00:38:36] <andypugh> The machine is great with a 20mm cutter in steel or iron. But those are expensive cutters.
[00:38:54] <XXCoder2> cant swap spidle for better rpm?

[00:42:20] <cncformywife> andypugh: what is the pic?
[00:45:34] <andypugh> cncformywife: It’s a wooden gantry design
[00:46:21] <cncformywife> gantry for what?
[00:46:31] <andypugh> XXCoder2: Not really: https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/GwJasYJB1sDpauT92DfiINMTjNZETYmyPJy0liipFm0?feat=directlink
[00:46:38] <anarchos2> andypugh, have any pics of your machine?
[00:46:40] <XXCoder2> general idea on how to make certain parts rigid cncformywife
[00:46:53] -!- tawr [tawr!~tawr@] has joined #linuxcnc
[00:47:02] <XXCoder2> hmm guess thats out
[00:47:24] <XXCoder2> 1k rpm isnt really fast enough for alum, and wood is right now unless ipm is insanely low
[00:47:41] <anarchos2> purrdy
[00:47:54] <andypugh> I could change the gearing (belt at the back, gears in the vertical head) but the bearings already get _very_ hot.
[00:48:40] <XXCoder2> well best bet is just new small machine for non-steel or iron needs
[00:48:43] <andypugh> In fact they got so hot that I might take it apart and look for prpoblems.
[00:50:32] <anarchos2> Z axis on the knee or quill?
[00:50:39] <andypugh> I picked this up today. Possibly the most over-packaged order ever.
[00:50:41] <andypugh> https://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/6-exJqnUy2bngnw1XjzJWj6DPCNJV8hY0JQn7i_rlrM?feat=directlink

[00:50:52] <andypugh> Z is the knee.
[00:51:23] <andypugh> (the contents of the package are on top of the package)
[00:51:55] <fenugrec> Most bearing grease will be OK up to at least 70 C, which is goddamn hot to the touch...
[00:52:08] <anarchos2> i'd love it if i had to room for a knee mill
[00:52:08] <XXCoder2> tlking about packaging, my gauge come in the toughest air bubble package I have ever seen
[00:52:16] <anarchos2> how hard is it to CNC the head?
[00:52:24] <XXCoder2> its like a bag, and very rigid
[00:53:02] <andypugh> anarchos2: Can you re-state the question>
[00:53:45] <anarchos2> is it feasable to put a stepper/servo on the head rotation on a mill like that?
[00:53:55] <andypugh> fenugrec: I had to search very hard to find the NLGM3 grease that is specified for the bearings.
[00:54:43] <fenugrec> andypugh NLGI 3 ? what kind of bearing; tapered roller ?
[00:55:11] <andypugh> It would be hard to keep it all rigid enough. A very big crossed-roller might work
[00:55:24] <andypugh> fenugrec: Yes, taper rollers.
[00:55:42] <andypugh> But I think that the grease is mainly to keep the oil in…
[00:56:49] <fenugrec> andypugh: interesting... being thicker it might break down at lower temperatures but that is purely speculation. What's its rating ?
[00:57:04] <andypugh> The head is oil-filled, but the top bearing won’t see the oil, so gets grease. The bottom bearing has no oil seal, so the oil is kept in by the grease.
[00:57:23] <fenugrec> andypugh: http://www.reliableplant.com/Read/25315/Tips-troubleshooting-bearing-temperatures ; I had an interesting talk with an NSK guy last year but wasn't paying too much attention to temperature issues at the time.
[00:57:47] <andypugh> NLGI3 is apparently suggested for any vertical shaft application. But you try finding some.
[00:59:01] <Valen> grease shouldn't hold oil in, normally oil will disolve grease, unless its some kind of fancy pants grease
[00:59:25] <andypugh> I am not claimign that this is a great dsign :-)
[00:59:47] <fenugrec> Valen: grease is a "soap" + oil in suspension
[01:00:03] <andypugh> I actually added a standard oil seal to keep it all in.
[01:00:08] <fenugrec> andypugh: https://www.motionindustries.com/ list a few, but may not be suitable for bearings.
[01:01:13] <XXCoder2> lathium grease? heh'
[01:01:33] <andypugh> The BT30 spindle has holes in the drive flange that would let the oil out if I removed the grease. (though I don’t use them, so could plug them)
[01:02:51] <andypugh> I eventually found the grease at a bearing shop: http://simplybearings.co.uk/shop/p210139/SKF+LGMT3+400ml+Cartridge+General+Purpose+Industrial+and+Automotive+Grease/product_info.html
[01:06:41] <andypugh> The same site also has my spindle bearings; http://simplybearings.co.uk/shop/p40501/Major+Brand+358X/354B+Imperial+Taper+Roller+Bearing+Flanged+Cup+and+Cone+Set+1.7717x3.3465x0.8125+inch+Allow+2-3+Days/product_info.html
[01:06:59] <fenugrec> andypugh: yeah, definitely keep those greased. Not too much, either - my NSK book says 1/3 to 2/3 of the internal space (if you haven't something like this, definitely keep something like this http://www.jp.nsk.com/app01/en/ctrg/index.cgi?rm=pdfView&pno=e1102m on hand ! page A105
[01:07:17] <andypugh> Yeah, I have several :-)
[01:07:29] -!- patrickarlt has quit [Client Quit]
[01:08:37] <andypugh> Except my bearings were made in France, and the number is hand-engraved, with a serial number and the inspectors initials.
[01:08:50] <fenugrec> andypugh: Good, then I have little else to add p-)
[01:09:40] <mutley_> andypugh: the machine of mine you saw earlier, would you expect to use high or low microstep settings on such a machine?
[01:09:48] <andypugh> It’s hard to control the fill when you are pumping in to a nipple and there is a gearbox full of oil on top, thought.
[01:10:13] <andypugh> mutley_: It would depend on the step source
[01:10:27] <mutley_> DM442 drivers
[01:10:53] <andypugh> No, I meant parport of FPGA card or PRU
[01:11:10] <mutley_> oh its a standalone controller cnc usb
[01:11:21] <mutley_> well i say standalone, i mean its usb connected
[01:11:36] <fenugrec> andypugh: I can imagine. But I think it makes a huge difference in temperature rise between 100% saturated vs partly-filled
[01:13:15] <andypugh> fenugrec: As I have no way to empty the bearings, they basically run at whatever doesn’t get pumped out. I could dismantle the entire head, remove all lubricants, re-lube and _still_ not know how much was in there.
[01:13:51] <fenugrec> hehehe
[01:13:55] <fenugrec> how hot does it get ?
[01:14:16] <andypugh> I am well aware that there is a “right” amount of grease, but any bearing with a grease nipple that is 40 years old is an unknown.
[01:14:50] <andypugh> I ought to measure it. Hot enough to know it is behind you.
[01:17:19] <andypugh> Talking of spindles, I was idly watching this. Someone got a bargain: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/251567194197

[03:24:12] <tawr> aww anarchos2
[03:25:31] <anarchos2> i just picked up a random power supply from some unknown device that has both 5v/2a and 12v/2a output for $1 at a thirft store (the delayed delivery is power supplies :P)
[03:25:56] <anarchos2> i just need to figure out the pinout....would probably be a lot easier if I had a multimetre :P
[03:26:14] <anarchos2> http://i.imgur.com/mN6jxKF.jpg
[03:27:07] <anarchos2> it doesn't make sense to my new to electronics brain that there's two 5V pins, two ground and one 12v pin
[03:27:56] <tawr> there's 5 pins, 2 are smaller than the rest
[03:28:12] <tawr> the lower 2 (smaller) ones probably turn the supply on and off, and it's 1x 5v 12v and gnd
[03:28:14] <tawr> on the larger pins
[03:28:25] <anarchos2> ah
[03:28:36] <tawr> you need a meter though
[03:28:57] <tawr> they can be had for under 20 bucks brand new - they are indispensible
[03:29:28] <anarchos2> all the pins look the same size, just the light in the pic makes some look bigger
[03:29:44] <anarchos2> yeah, i was thinking of ordering one. i kinda live in the middle of nowhere so to speak.
[03:30:03] <anarchos2> i can get stuff like that at the auto parts store but they'll charge $100+ for a $10 chinese meter

[03:36:50] <tawr> oh
[03:36:51] <anarchos2> all made in china and rebranded, but insanely low prices and free shipping
[03:37:09] <tawr> well what country are you at anarchos2, if you don't mind me asking?
[03:37:15] <anarchos2> canada
[03:37:17] <tawr> and sorry- those pins really looked far smaller
[03:37:21] <XXCoder2> not an canadian even though my dad side come from canada.

[03:37:52] <tawr> sears / craftsman has some 30 dollar meters, sparkfun/adafruit etc all have inexpensive meters and ship to canada as well, there are tons of canadian electronics companies
[03:38:31] <anarchos2> oh for sure
[03:38:46] <anarchos2> there's some on amazon for $20
[03:39:11] <tawr> really though - a meter is necessary :)
[03:39:27] <anarchos2> oh for sure, heh, i'm surprised i got this far without :P
[03:40:42] <tawr> :P
[03:40:57] <tawr> i suppose if you have a few leds and resistors you can figure out the pinout
[03:41:05] <tawr> pretty easily
[03:41:31] <anarchos2> true
[03:41:59] <anarchos2> i did use an old trailer wiring harness with LED indicators as a ghetto meter one time :P
[03:42:40] <tawr> ha - necessity is the mother of invention :)
[03:42:54] <anarchos2> i wonder if theyd light up under 5v, or just 12v only
[03:43:21] <tawr> my meter has a very special story - I had just turned 21, was working at medical equip. company, finished college as an EE and went to vegas

[03:43:51] <tawr> my first day there I hit a jackpot for around 900 bucks. I got my money, walked out of the casino, got a cab down to Fry's, and bought my Fluke 189 logging meter (for 600 iirc)
[03:44:19] <anarchos2> heh, cool
[03:44:34] <tawr> it's been with me through some interesting projects, is beat to shit, and still looks brand new (if you ignore the stains)

[03:45:17] <tawr> hahaha - better than the alternative
[03:45:24] <anarchos2> i remember tipping the dealers and waitresses a lot, so i guess i probably made a bit more than $20 but wasted it all :P
[03:45:28] <tawr> when i go to vegas, I go all out. play big win big
[03:45:45] <XXCoder2> more likely lose big
[03:45:50] <tawr> no actually
[03:46:03] <tawr> there has not been a single trip to vegas I did not 'pay' for the entire trip my first day there.
[03:46:17] <tawr> as in my winnings day 1 covered the entire trip + lodging + food.
[03:46:27] <XXCoder2> not bad
[03:46:39] <XXCoder2> not much of a gambler myself
[03:46:51] <tawr> gotta walk around and 'feel' machines. if you get emotionally invested on a single unit - you're going to lose your money
[03:47:05] <tawr> put 5 into a machine here - do max bet once or twice, move on
[03:47:14] <tawr> and always use the player tracking card ;P

[03:50:24] <tawr> a meter is your eyes and ears into the world of electronics. the better the tool the better your 'vision'
[03:50:44] <XXCoder2> normal price is 20 usd, its black friday thats the reason i got it so cheap
[03:50:49] <tawr> i think my meter goes down to 1uA current measurements
[03:51:09] <anarchos2> i was concidering this, it seems to have really good reviews

[03:57:41] <tawr> remember - it's your eyes and ears :)
[03:59:07] <anarchos2> maybe this is a better idea, as im sure i can borrow a meter for a few days
[03:59:23] <anarchos2> buy the uni-t from aliexpress where it's only $50 including shipping
[03:59:37] <anarchos2> even tho it'll take a month to get here :P
[04:00:24] <tawr> well
[04:00:34] <tawr> i assume you do cnc stuff

[04:23:42] <anarchos2> it looks like you can buy a usb cable
[04:24:22] <LeelooMinai> Ok, from what I see the usb version has the same name - UT61E, just USB interface
[04:24:46] <LeelooMinai> Yes, but having built-in USB will be much faster.

[07:38:03] <archivist> you would be better off with a ball screw for reliability
[07:39:30] <archivist> cutting screws is easy enough on a screw cutting lathe or mill with a 4th axis, but does need support during the cutting if long
[07:41:23] <archivist> this is how I made a silly proportion thin coarse screw for a clock http://www.collection.archivist.info/searchv13.php?searchstr=merlin+worm
[07:42:42] <archivist> that is 4mm diameter
[07:47:03] <ReadError> Flipp_ using openpnp?

[07:49:51] <Flipp_> archivist: man, I wish I had access to that kinda hardware O.o
[07:50:18] <Flipp_> archivist: I had to cut a screw early today by hand with a hacksaw D:
[07:50:26] <Flipp_> archivist: the perils of living in an apartment :(
[07:50:56] <archivist> I built that from scrap and a few new bits and some machined
[07:51:49] <archivist> buy ready made is no access to machines, join a hackspace
[07:52:09] <Flipp_> archivist: sadly there aren't many well equipped in the seattle area :/
[07:52:48] <archivist> or a class for machinists or a model engineering club
[07:52:50] <Flipp_> but yeah. I end up paying a bit more, but I usually get stuff cut/formed before I buy
[07:53:54] <archivist> you can just carry on using the same screw and accept the slowness, or gear up (belt or gears) from the stepper to screw
[07:54:27] <archivist> be aware that leadscrews whip at speed if long and thin

[09:32:09] <mutley_> ok so just want to say thanks to a cpl guys from yesterday for their help and patience with my questions, archivist and a cpl others gave me the info i needed to get this running right http://imgur.com/RDxwSr5
[09:32:24] <mutley_> http://imgur.com/TdkCDle
[09:33:08] <mutley_> http://imgur.com/ZMe1E9z these now drop into the gearbox where they replace worn gears, they drop on erfectly and run smooth as silk
[09:33:42] <mutley_> that came of the machine at about 3am, thank heavens the neighbour has gone away for the weekend.....it turned out all my issues were down to a gantry that wasnt straight
[09:34:51] <archivist> I know the spastic fur problem http://gears.archivist.info/gears/fan_gears.html
[09:35:19] <archivist> nice result though
[09:36:11] <kfoltman> mutley_: milled or printed?
[09:36:25] <archivist> milled
[09:36:37] <mutley_> ha sastic fur, year its a bit furry, they clean up well though, just a little tedious scraping of the flash once the main part of that fur is pulled away but a litle patience and they soon come u nice
[09:36:52] <mutley_> this is the thing, when selling people just think these are "bits of plastic"
[09:37:15] <mutley_> kfoltman: milled, i have done some printed ones too which came up nice but sadly wouldnt be functional
[09:37:17] <archivist> I do the fur removal with a scalpel and a microscope
[09:37:59] <mutley_> yea i pull it off with needle nose pliers, then its a sharp blade under a magnifying lamp
[09:38:27] <mutley_> only about 10 minutes to clean each one if that once you site down and get a rythm going
[09:39:10] <kfoltman> archivist: great idea!
[09:40:04] <archivist> these were done with a gear milling cutter http://www.collection.archivist.info/archive/DJCPD/PD/2014/2014_01_19_Cyprus_gears/IMG_1735.JPG
[09:40:28] <archivist> parting off was not so good
[09:40:46] <kfoltman> archivist: as in, on a lathe or...?
[09:40:51] <kfoltman> with a hob
[09:41:26] <mutley_> so today im going to make one of those centrometers, brass bar, steel ground rod and some grub screws to have a larger radius now that i have seen the importance relevance and fact that i need to do that test 2 we were talking about yesterday
[09:41:33] <kfoltman> archivist: the stuff on the left and the right of each gear - is that just unfortunate lighting, or is there an excess of material in there?
[09:41:36] <archivist> no a milling cutter on the 5 axis mill
[09:41:59] <mutley_> archivist: thy look familiar? automotive aplication?
[09:42:20] <archivist> no a toy dancing frog band
[09:42:51] <mutley_> see now if i was in a different place id swear for sure that was a piss take answer lol
[09:43:04] <archivist> but when someone really wants something repaired ....:)

[10:39:34] <ssi> it's a lot more expensive that way, but they're more robust
[10:39:54] <archivist> they are known for going up in smoke, specially with bad motor connections

[10:42:30] <kfoltman> ssi: ok, I won't interrupt you then ;)
[10:42:33] <archivist> linuxcnc does more that either
[10:42:39] <archivist> than
[10:42:58] <kfoltman> shanker_: I use grbl, hoping to upgrade to linuxcnc soon
[10:43:00] <ssi> also a lot of the folks here using linuxcnc tend to use much more robust (and expensive) hardware
[10:43:22] <shanker_> kfoltman are you using the shield
[10:43:34] <Jymmm> ssi: My only concern using the 1x1 is twisting/flexing/bowing
[10:43:46] <kfoltman> shanker_: I have my own breakout board made from my own protoboard with arduino nano plugged into it
[10:43:51] <ssi> Jymmm: it'll be fine... it's a frickin laser, not a router
[10:43:59] <ssi> and once it's all boxed up, it's rock solid
[10:44:14] <kfoltman> shanker_: you could use a protoshield or whatever, no rocket science there
[10:44:22] <shanker_> kfoltman what do you think about using a dual-h bridge to drive the moters
[10:44:29] <kfoltman> shanker_: just remember to use 0.9f version of grbl, the previous ones had some rather nasty bugs
[10:44:38] <kfoltman> shanker_: forget it :)
[10:44:45] <archivist> get good robust drivers
[10:44:46] <shanker_> yeah I was reading about that
[10:44:56] <shanker_> ok forgotten
[10:45:04] <kfoltman> shanker_: the 6560 aren't really that bad if you're operating them well within their safety limits
[10:45:19] <kfoltman> shanker_: or at least that's my experience so far, YMMV
[10:45:38] <kfoltman> shanker_: I'm using 2 of those board + one makeblock microstep driver, all from a 24V 5A power supply
[10:45:49] <kfoltman> they still work
[10:45:54] <shanker_> yeah that is nice
[10:46:09] <kfoltman> but my current limit is <=2A
[10:46:31] <shanker_> so if you had to go and do it from scrach after your board just blew up what would you go with. 3axis nema 23
[10:46:56] <kfoltman> shanker_: I don't know, I'd probably get a monthly supply of 6560s ;)
[10:47:10] <shanker_> right and just replace
[10:47:23] <kfoltman> shanker_: the makeblock driver doesn't seem that bad either, and it's in a proper metal case
[10:47:34] <kfoltman> depends on how much power you need really
[10:47:48] <kfoltman> geckodrives are supposed to be much better than any of those
[10:47:49] <shanker_> just cncing mdf
[10:48:06] <kfoltman> but they also cost about 5x price of the 6560s
[10:48:10] * archivist gets leadshine drivers and does not need constant replacement
[10:48:24] <kfoltman> archivist: I *touch wood* haven't had to replace any of my 6560s yet
[10:48:35] <kfoltman> I think the biggest problem with them is inflated specs
[10:48:37] <shanker_> lol
[10:49:12] <kfoltman> archivist: on the other hand, I fried several smaller drivers (stepsticks)
[10:49:48] <shanker_> o yeah on my 3d printer I have killed like 10
[10:49:55] <shanker_> stepsticks suck
[10:49:58] <kfoltman> shanker_: amen
[10:50:26] <kfoltman> shanker_: well, for learning etc. 6560s are probably adequate, especially if you have one or two spares
[10:50:38] <shanker_> so the 6560 is what blew up on my board
[10:50:49] <kfoltman> I don't know your board
[10:50:58] <kfoltman> it might have been anything
[10:50:59] <shanker_> I know you dont
[10:51:03] <shanker_> right
[10:51:13] <kfoltman> anyway, for any commercial use etc. you're better off following archivist's advice, he knows what he's doing
[10:51:27] * archivist admits nothing
[10:51:33] <shanker_> ha
[10:51:58] <shanker_> Shoot I am still learning. I have tried to build a cnc 3 times
[10:52:07] <kfoltman> for home use, if you can afford the occasional 'machine breaks and ruins the workpiece' kind of events, it might be an overkill
[10:52:07] <shanker_> and every time I fail
[10:52:28] <kfoltman> shanker_: mine is generally working, but has some teething problems
[10:52:29] <shanker_> But I am having fun at it
[10:52:38] <kfoltman> and ruins 2 out of 3 jobs I give it
[10:52:42] <archivist> I only built one once but I modify as I go along
[10:52:45] -!- micges-dev [micges-dev!~x@eir233.neoplus.adsl.tpnet.pl] has parted #linuxcnc
[10:53:00] <kfoltman> but at least I know what I have to fix, which is good :)
[10:53:34] <shanker_> yeah the first one I built was out of plastic and metal tubes and build my own liner motaion
[10:53:54] <shanker_> it fell aprt
[10:54:02] <kfoltman> hah yeah, not surprising
[10:54:07] <shanker_> this one I am working on is out of 8020
[10:54:10] <kfoltman> it would be OK for PCB exposer or something like that
[10:54:19] <shanker_> yeah
[10:54:25] <kfoltman> I used plywood and commercial linear motion components
[10:54:38] <kfoltman> linear rails, ballscrews
[10:55:04] <shanker_> I just dont know if. I am going to buy a new TB6560
[10:55:10] <shanker_> or find something else
[10:55:12] <kfoltman> the cost was rather enormous (>1000 euro for everything) but at least I didn't have half of the typical problems people have with cheap parts
[10:55:46] <shanker_> like it smoking the house up and your wife getting mad at you
[10:55:49] <shanker_> =)
[10:55:54] <ssi> shanker_: take it as an opportunity to upgrade
[10:56:02] <shanker_> true
[10:56:06] <kfoltman> shanker_: you have an integrated board with multiple drivers?
[10:56:07] <shanker_> ssi I agree
[10:56:12] <shanker_> yes
[10:56:13] <ssi> get some dedicated drives and either a good breakout or even better, mesa interface
[10:56:16] <shanker_> 3 drivers
[10:56:34] <kfoltman> shanker_: I use single axis driver boards, so it's easier to replace if it fails
[10:56:41] <shanker_> I like the dedicated drivers will work
[10:56:45] <ssi> tell me about your motors, size/torque, and power supply
[10:57:12] <shanker_> ok nema 23's they have 24v 2amp I think
[10:57:34] <shanker_> 1/8th step
[10:57:34] <kfoltman> shanker_: what current per phase in the configuration you're using?
[10:57:41] -!- amiri_ has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
[10:57:44] <kfoltman> shanker_: also, 4 phase? 8 phase? serial, parallel?
[10:57:50] <shanker_> 4 phase
[10:57:57] <shanker_> parallel
[10:58:03] <ssi> so for inexpensive drives, I use keling stuff... archivist mentioned leadshine, i think these are rebranded leadshine
[10:58:06] <ssi> http://www.automationtechnologiesinc.com/products-page/kl-stepper-drivers/kl-4030-24-40vdc-3-0a-microstepping-driver
[10:58:10] <ssi> but something along those lines will probably work well for you
[10:58:17] <ssi> yeah that's a lot more money than the TB6560
[10:58:20] <ssi> but it's a lot more good too
[10:58:34] <kfoltman> ssi: those seem quite cheap, even comparing to the Chinese boards
[10:58:55] <ssi> kfoltman: that's $44 for a single axis drive
[10:59:01] <ssi> vs $55 for three axes plus breakout
[10:59:08] <kfoltman> $15 for tb6560 without a case, $44 for this in a proper box
[10:59:27] <kfoltman> geckos are like $100 per axis or even more
[10:59:34] <ssi> yeah geckos are too expensive
[10:59:49] <shanker_> still If i am going to spend about 300 in 8020 might as well do it right
[10:59:55] <ssi> the g203v is supposed to be a very good drive, but I don't know personally because I won't spend $130 for a single axis of drive :P
[11:00:05] <ssi> the keling/leadshine type drives are FINE
[11:00:08] <kfoltman> ssi: the "three axis plus breakout" seems like a bad idea overall
[11:00:15] <ssi> if you want to spend a little more, get the digital drives
[11:00:25] <ssi> kfoltman: oh I agree completely, I don't use anything like that anymore
[11:00:29] <ssi> my first one blew up real early
[11:00:44] <shanker_> http://www.ebay.com/itm/CNC-TB6560-3-5A-4-Axis-Stepper-Motor-Driver-Board-Controller-4-Engraving-Machine-/400637530827?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d47db92cb
[11:00:51] <shanker_> so that is the board I smoked
[11:00:58] <ssi> http://www.automationtechnologiesinc.com/products-page/digital-stepper-motor-driver/digital-stepper-driver-kl-4042d-heat-sink-is-included
[11:01:03] <ssi> there's the digital version of that drive
[11:01:08] <ssi> $70 apiece isn't cheap
[11:01:11] <kfoltman> shanker_: well, yeah, avoid these, they're *too* cheap
[11:01:21] <ssi> but I just ordered three of those in a slightly higher voltage ($90 each) for my laser table
[11:01:24] <shanker_> right
[11:01:39] <shanker_> ooo lazer table
[11:01:46] <shanker_> ssi I bet that is fun
[11:01:49] <ssi> and when you're ready to move to linuxcnc, get yourself a mesa 7i76 kit and you'll be in business
[11:02:00] <kfoltman> ssi: 'digital' drives? how are they doing microstep *without* digital/PWM?
[11:02:03] <ssi> shanker_: I hope so; I'm still in the building phase now... laser tube and optics are still in the mail :)
[11:02:16] <kfoltman> optics... scary stuff
[11:02:17] <kfoltman> :(
[11:02:21] <shanker_> what kind of tube did you get ?
[11:02:30] <ssi> kfoltman: heh
[11:02:35] <shanker_> or gas i mean
[11:02:41] <ssi> shanker_: bottom of the barrel cheap chinese 40W co2
[11:02:52] <shanker_> they dont look that bad
[11:02:58] <ssi> which'll get replaced with something a little better once everything's working well
[11:03:17] <shanker_> ssi have you seen the one on buildyourcnc.com
[11:03:50] <ssi> yea
[11:04:05] <shanker_> https://www.buildyourcnc.com/blackToothLaserCutterAndEngraver.aspx
[11:04:10] <shanker_> that one is sick
[11:04:15] <ssi> too much MDF for my taste :)
[11:04:28] <shanker_> right if it goes up in flames
[11:04:41] <ssi> here's the beginning of my table
[11:04:41] <ssi> https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BsatjbjIIAEotj7.jpg:large
[11:04:54] <ssi> also I settled on a 2x4' work area, and it's turning out HUGE heheh
[11:05:02] <ssi> it's like 34x68" outside
[11:05:18] <shanker_> that is nice

[11:06:03] <shanker_> yeah that is going to be huge
[11:06:07] <SpeedEvil> ssi: I'm planning a 1.2*2.4*0.3m or so bed router.
[11:06:20] <ssi> SpeedEvil: nice
[11:06:30] <ssi> my plasma table is 48x48" work area, and it's pretty flippin huge too
[11:06:32] <SpeedEvil> ssi: It's easy enough to start 'Ok, now, a 60cm beam is quite rigid enough...
[11:06:53] <SpeedEvil> ssi: but then it all adds up to a pretty huge envelope
[11:06:56] <ssi> yep
[11:07:16] <ssi> plasma table is made out of 2x4" x 3/16" wall rectangle steel tube welded together
[11:07:22] <ssi> and it weighs a couple hundred pounds empty
[11:08:23] <jthornton> my plasma is 36 x 52 but I can slide a 4' x 8' sheet in and cut part at a time
[11:09:00] <jthornton> my wife looked in the plasma cam ad that I get every once and a while and wants the butterfly chair
[11:09:14] <shanker_> what do you all think about http://www.ebay.com/itm/CNC-3-Axis-stepper-Driver-3-5A-Breakout-interface-board-for-Router-system-kit-/281221235650?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item417a1783c2\
[11:09:51] <ssi> jthornton: I'm still having issues with the Z axis trying to make offset removal moves hugely fast and stalling
[11:09:51] <Jymmm> jthornton: Happy Wife = Happy Life, so GIT ER DONE!!!
[11:10:22] <ssi> shanker_: suspiciously cheap, but a step in the right direction ;)
[11:10:28] <jthornton> ssi, what correction velocity are you using?
[11:10:52] <shanker_> ssi i know cheap but it is still a hobbie
[11:10:54] <ssi> 0.00005
[11:11:11] <shanker_> once i get it up and running a can make a few dollars off of it
[11:11:16] <shanker_> then I will upgrade
[11:11:28] <jthornton> I'm using 0.00002
[11:11:47] <jthornton> more than that and I saw voltage fluctuations
[11:12:10] <ssi> the other thing that's odd...
[11:12:21] <ssi> I get huge voltage fluctuations on small holes, which probably isn't surprising
[11:12:26] <ssi> on long cuts it's stable
[11:12:34] <ssi> but it looks like the torch climbs away from the work and the arc gets pretty long
[11:12:53] <jthornton> how small of a hole is small?
[11:13:00] <ssi> I'm wondering if either my voltage sensing correction isn't right, or if my initial cut height isn't right
[11:13:04] <ssi> 1/4"
[11:13:26] <ssi> and that's at 200ipm or more
[11:13:30] <jthornton> I usually don't cut that small of a hole
[11:13:31] <ssi> so it probably doesn't even have time to stabilize
[11:13:36] <ssi> yeah they don't do great hehe
[11:14:53] <shanker_> I would say it is all about the right documentation too
[11:15:22] <shanker_> the board I got from china didnt have any
[11:15:37] <shanker_> it came with a cd loaded with like 3000 modles on it
[11:15:48] <shanker_> figures why i blew it up

[11:16:15] <ssi> beware: you can blow up almost any stepper driver
[11:16:27] <ssi> the g203v is supposed to be "unkillable" but it's also $130 apiece
[11:16:35] <ssi> just about anything cheaper can be killed

[16:15:18] <IchGuckLive> Nebukadneza: heho
[16:16:05] <Nebukadneza> mhhh, say -- do i understand right that linuxcnc cannot be used to send commands to those grbl-compatible controller devices..?
[16:16:43] <IchGuckLive> most of this got als oa busmode
[16:17:18] <archivist> Nebukadneza, yes that is right
[16:17:38] <IchGuckLive> Nebukadneza: there is only one post from you i the logs so we need some more infos to help you on your problem
[16:17:55] <archivist> Nebukadneza, linuxcnc is the controller
[16:17:58] -!- anarchos has quit [Ping timeout: 240 seconds]
[16:18:35] <IchGuckLive> are you retrofitting a device or building a new one
[16:19:20] <Nebukadneza> i'm getting a 4-axis styrofoam hotwire CNC cutter from a friend soon, and it's fitted with a smoothie-something controller thingy
[16:19:32] <SpeedEvil> Nebukadneza: fun
[16:19:48] <IchGuckLive> oh thats my big goal i got 10 foam cutters
[16:19:54] <archivist> that is a mach cough 3 toy
[16:20:12] <XXCoder2> 10 of em wow
[16:20:19] <Nebukadneza> as documentation sounds limited on that device, and its surrounding "ecosystem", so i'd have liked it//hoped for if linuxcnc would somehow supported it :D
[16:20:24] <Nebukadneza> archivist: mach *cough* 3?
[16:20:35] <IchGuckLive> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AMp6QVtOoZw
[16:20:40] <IchGuckLive> here is one
[16:21:15] <XXCoder2> unwatchable videpo
[16:21:16] <archivist> mach3 is less good at realtime control so they hand off to an external smoothy box
[16:21:23] <IchGuckLive> the 5 axis XYUVB is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wT_ndXDZ0DU
[16:21:25] <XXCoder2> not only handheld, but constant motion
[16:21:45] <IchGuckLive> a casel in one shot
[16:21:54] <Nebukadneza> archivist: i thought that smoothieboard thingy wanted "grbl"?
[16:22:14] <SpeedEvil> http://www.mauve.plus.com/Chinese-Lantern.jpg - my polystyrene cut mould lantern
[16:22:14] <archivist> no it is a similar concept to grbl
[16:22:21] <SpeedEvil> It's a fun thing to do
[16:22:32] <IchGuckLive> i also made a post for foam on heekscad to get the g-code for mashines in one shot out of dxf no Z involved
[16:22:37] <SpeedEvil> (the base only)
[16:22:54] <Nebukadneza> so in any case, these things are made so i send them my gcode in some way or other, and they do the realtime magic for me, right?
[16:23:09] <Nebukadneza> linuxcnc on the other hand, does the realtime magic on the linux box?
[16:23:25] <archivist> you just about got it there :)
[16:24:14] <archivist> except the smoothy will expect something from mach3
[16:24:30] <Nebukadneza> ok
[16:24:34] <os1r1s> Nebukadneza: If you are talking about a smoothieboard, that is different than a smoothstepper
[16:24:47] <Nebukadneza> yes, the "smoothieboard"
[16:24:58] <os1r1s> Nebukadneza: I believe emc2 will work with smoothieboard
[16:25:11] <Nebukadneza> oh!
[16:25:23] <os1r1s> There is some sort of passthrough people have used to control repraps
[16:25:33] <IchGuckLive> smothieboard uses the ethernet connector
[16:25:53] <os1r1s> That is different than a smoothstepper which is windows/mach3 specific
[16:25:54] <Nebukadneza> IchGuckLive: yes, or serial over usb
[16:26:08] <Nebukadneza> os1r1s: sorry, didn't know there were so "closely-named" producst
[16:26:11] <Nebukadneza> *products
[16:26:33] <os1r1s> No worries. Happy to help someone out
[16:28:06] <archivist> os1r1s, are you sure seems it is a g code driven device
[16:28:17] <Nebukadneza> mh
[16:28:29] <archivist> and linuxcnc does not output g code to another device
[16:28:31] <Nebukadneza> do you have a link to some documentation concerning that pass through mode? i seem too blind to find it atm
[16:28:33] <os1r1s> archivist: It is, but people have used repraps with emc2.
[16:28:59] <archivist> repraps and emc/linuxcnc is not smoothieboard
[16:29:17] <archivist> are you making the right connection
[16:29:23] <os1r1s> Nebukadneza: http://reprap.org/wiki/EMCRepRap
[16:29:53] <os1r1s> Nebukadneza: If you join #smoothieware, there will be people familiar with that controller
[16:30:05] <Nebukadneza> mh, right too
[16:30:06] <Nebukadneza> thanks!
[16:30:33] <os1r1s> archivist: Yes, I am. I'm very familiar with both smoothieboard and smoothsteppers
[16:31:06] <os1r1s> I don't know emc2 well at all though, but I'm aware that people have done that
[16:31:13] <archivist> but not soothieboard to linuxcnc by the look of it

[17:52:18] <CaptHindsight> do you have one to copy? or just the pictures?
[17:52:19] <archivist> that tells you where I am, 5 miles from it
[17:52:39] <marmite_> i do have a broken one
[17:53:27] <CaptHindsight> sounds like you're pretty close to having a template
[17:54:10] <marmite_> scaning in then cadding ontop of the image
[17:55:50] <CaptHindsight> depending on the scanner you might not even have to do any CAD, there are image to G-code utils as well
[17:56:30] <marmite_> yeah, i have tested out scan 2 cad with kinda bad results
[17:56:45] <CaptHindsight> you need good scan data
[17:56:56] <archivist> I tend to measure
[17:57:39] <marmite_> measure would be the best, but really hard due to the form och the plate for me :D

[19:06:57] <cncformywife> what i can do with dremel based cnc?
[19:07:09] <XXCoder2> make parts for better cnc
[19:07:15] <XXCoder2> artwork, etching
[19:07:23] <Loetmichel> cncformywife: not muc
[19:07:24] <Loetmichel> h
[19:07:31] <Loetmichel> ise a proxxon IB/e at least
[19:07:48] <Loetmichel> much better spindle bearings than dremel
[19:07:53] <archivist> dremel has loose bearing mountings
[19:08:04] <XXCoder2> honestly bosch trim router is only like 30 bucks more than dermel and much better
[19:08:06] <cncformywife> what is "proxxon IB"
[19:08:21] <archivist> other junk
[19:08:21] <cncformywife> i have a dremel 4000
[19:08:27] <Loetmichel> XXCoder2: the router is roughly 10 times the weight
[19:08:38] <Loetmichel> and roughly 3 times the size of a dremel/proxxon
[19:08:39] <XXCoder2> youre talking about full size router
[19:08:59] <Loetmichel> cncformywife: the one on this machine:
[19:09:19] <Loetmichel> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYgyqjHCBLg
[19:09:22] <cncformywife> i cut bolts with the dermel.
[19:09:40] <Loetmichel> the dremel has bad bearings. its no good for side forces on the shaft
[19:10:26] <Loetmichel> and its called proxxon IB/e
[19:10:42] <Loetmichel> the one from proxxon wiht the aluminium head
[19:10:50] <cncformywife> but it's not even screch the surface ...

[19:11:35] <cncformywife> what about stainless?
[19:11:35] <Loetmichel> cncformywife: the video was a demo for the movement speed of the machine, not for the proxxon-
[19:11:42] <Loetmichel> it just happens to be on this machine
[19:12:15] <Loetmichel> milling steel with a dremel/proxxon isnt best
[19:12:26] <Loetmichel> sounds BAD and is not really precise
[19:12:40] <cncformywife> and how it's move soooo fast?
[19:12:52] <Loetmichel> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FGNbgkg9O2Y
[19:13:16] <Loetmichel> cncformywife: because that likke beast has no leadscrews but uses a steel cable drive

[19:14:22] <cncformywife> work 90 deg? on the side?
[19:15:10] <kfoltman> cncformywife: I use proxxon (newer model, ibs/e)
[19:15:23] <kfoltman> cncformywife: it's not ideal, but far better than dremel (which I also have)
[19:15:29] <XXCoder2> so dirty. lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNLjMg0Nitk
[19:16:01] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: what material was cut in that video?

[19:16:24] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: 10 passes?
[19:16:28] <Loetmichel> right
[19:16:33] <XXCoder2> cnc yeah
[19:16:49] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: would it cut 2mm in 20 passes? or is it non-linear?

[19:22:00] <Loetmichel> i dont think that bearing will survive very long... ;-)
[19:22:09] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: yeah, terrible
[19:22:27] <kfoltman> OMG
[19:22:30] <kfoltman> 0:30
[19:22:33] <Loetmichel> i used that proxxon beacuse the mill wasnt meant to do horiziontal
[19:22:46] <Loetmichel> and the chinese HF spindle is to thick
[19:22:51] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: the 800W water-cooled spindle, is that more capable?
[19:22:58] <Loetmichel> a LOT more
[19:23:05] <Loetmichel> but it doesent fit under the beam
[19:23:12] <Loetmichel> so i "tricked" a bit

[19:23:37] <cncformywife> what do you think on my design?^^
[19:23:37] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=14486
[19:23:42] <Loetmichel> you see the difference?
[19:24:11] <archivist> cncformywife, I dont like those bar supports
[19:24:11] <XXCoder2> interesting
[19:24:13] <Loetmichel> i had to mill some plugs in the side of that boxes
[19:24:18] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: horizontal vs vertical, what else?
[19:24:22] <XXCoder2> why would you need that alternate mode?
[19:24:36] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: and yes, the Chinese one wouldn't fit
[19:24:42] <Loetmichel> normal vertical is the big 800W spindle, horizontal the proxxon
[19:24:52] <archivist> you need fully supported bars like Loetmichel has
[19:24:53] <kfoltman> not enough clearance for the 80mm+ spindle
[19:25:00] <Loetmichel> right
[19:25:13] <kfoltman> archivist: I have fully supported rails on every axis
[19:25:15] <cncformywife> what is the problem?
[19:25:23] <Loetmichel> luckily it was just a 50 pcs run ;-)
[19:25:26] <archivist> bending
[19:25:27] <cncformywife> archivist: ^
[19:25:37] <kfoltman> archivist: (if that's what you're referring to)
[19:25:48] <kfoltman> archivist: only 12mm though
[19:26:01] <cncformywife> it is 12mm
[19:26:36] <archivist> cncformywife, that would be a spring and you will get a lot of vibration
[19:26:45] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: I would have a lot of uses for this sort of horizontal arrangement - same as you, i.e. holes for sockets in boxes
[19:27:07] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: or maybe even put it parallel to the ground
[19:27:22] <kfoltman> horizontal milling but in different axis, if possible
[19:27:28] <kfoltman> along the Y
[19:27:54] <kfoltman> might be simply a second set of holes in the Z axis
[19:28:12] <cncformywife> i have 3 stepper motors.. so i think to make a cnc from them.. in the cheapest way.. :)
[19:28:16] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: normally i make the holes PRIOR to bending the boxes
[19:28:33] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: hard to do that if I buy ready-made ABS boxes (-:

[19:28:49] <kfoltman> if manufacturing from scratch, sure, that's better
[19:28:56] <Loetmichel> i just used a 50 run of old frames and converted them to a new design
[19:29:55] <kfoltman> makes a lot of sense
[19:30:11] <XXCoder2> kfoltman: makes sense

[19:33:56] <kfoltman> XXCoder2: all the oz*in, kg*m, N*m and various combinations are really annoying
[19:34:01] <kfoltman> makes it really hard to compare the motors
[19:34:01] <XXCoder2> yepp lol 1.1Nm
[19:34:35] <XXCoder2> divided by 10 not 100, olvious mistake when Cent means 100
[19:34:46] <kfoltman> XXCoder2: I'm probably not getting 3Nm out of my motors because of suboptimal power supply and cheap drivers, but still - last time I checked, I got 2000mm/min reliably

[19:35:48] <cncformywife> fine for what type of machine?
[19:35:58] <kfoltman> cncformywife: a desktop, home one
[19:36:00] <XXCoder2> like the junk machine I linked ago a sec
[19:36:02] <kfoltman> "desktop"
[19:36:18] <kfoltman> mine would take up a whole desk :P
[19:36:28] <XXCoder2> well its desk sized
[19:36:34] <cncformywife> for my deremel?
[19:36:35] <XXCoder2> lol
[19:36:51] <XXCoder2> my plan orginially was to use dermel
[19:36:56] <kfoltman> cncformywife: forget dremel, get a proxxon ib/e or ibs/e or some serious router
[19:36:57] <XXCoder2> but realized how shitty it is
[19:37:03] <XXCoder2> so trim router it is lol

[19:38:29] <XXCoder2> yeah trim router has this very nice sleeve thats round and easy to mount
[19:38:31] <kfoltman> proxxon has a collar which you can mount in SK20 block, and it stays there
[19:38:55] <kfoltman> the block itself is a standard part so it's not very expensive
[19:39:21] <kfoltman> I've previously used dremel and an aluminium tape, but it wasn't reliable

[19:41:08] <cncformywife> and for plastic?
[19:41:22] <kfoltman> maybe

[19:41:35] <cncformywife> on wood?

[19:42:04] <cncformywife> i want small and acurate machine.
[19:42:09] <kfoltman> get proxxon :)
[19:42:30] <kfoltman> extra bonus: low runout, so you can use *really* small drills :)
[19:42:36] <kfoltman> or endmills

[19:43:00] <kfoltman> XXCoder2: haven't seen one
[19:43:22] <kfoltman> the smaller I've seen (in a picture) was a 300W Chinese spindle, but people say it's crap, very underpowered

[19:46:18] <kfoltman> 21000 USD
[19:46:32] <kfoltman> 400W spindle, 4x dremel?
[19:47:35] <kfoltman> the cheapest one is $8000
[19:48:01] <kfoltman> Feed rate XY-axis: 0.0039 to 1.9 in./s (0.1 to 50 mm/sec.),

[19:50:25] <XXCoder2> wonder if it would work with epoxy lol

[20:02:50] <cncformywife> kfoltman: give my CNC i will change tools for free.
[20:02:52] <XXCoder2> your Y have to be wider than work area so it can get out of work area to pick up and drop tools
[20:03:05] <kfoltman> right, but you still need the 'clip on' mechanism to attach tools
[20:03:16] <XXCoder2> indeed
[20:03:22] <kfoltman> as opposed to fiddling with the chuck
[20:04:22] <XXCoder2> well
[20:04:30] <XXCoder2> sounds like you need 2 parts
[20:05:11] <XXCoder2> one to hold it, and another to prevent it from being rotated (whole whin spins but bit assemly itself should not have its own rotation in respect of machine spin)
[20:05:48] <XXCoder2> machines at work has holder part that has ball on top and slots on bottom. it grips ball and clips is where it prevents rpotation
[20:05:49] <kfoltman> a solenoid to push on the tool lock on the proxxon? (-:

[20:33:31] <kfoltman> my 3.2mm collet lets the tools "sink", not sure if it's just because of layer depth (= excessive force pushing the bit in) or is there something wrong with it

[20:44:22] <Loetmichel> kfoltman: tighten the collet chuck better
[20:48:15] <Einar1> It could also be the collet is bellmouthed. Or the collet holder does not have the right cone angle, in which case every collet will be bellmouthed.
[20:51:14] <Einar1> I complained about my 2.2Kw spindle being way out of spec (runout). First I measured it to be very good, then I tried another collet and it was 0.06mm out.
[20:53:38] <Einar1> Then back to the first collet and bit, and now that was also way out of spec. What is happening? Then I measured the tapered cone in the spindle shaft and it was out by 0.03-0.05mm at the front and at the inner end of the taper. Also it was very rough ground. So it will grip the collet differently each time.
[20:55:05] <Einar1> The seller said this was a drop in quality all over China. Actually I believe him, but told him he should not state a runout that is 10 times better than what we get!

[21:22:17] <XXCoder1> you click it, website provides you with "petrol code" which enables cncsimiliator to run for another 3 months
[21:22:18] <Loetmichel> hmm, opinions? better use the red switches to "move" the buttons from tha back to the front or the black ones? -> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=15026

[21:47:17] <kfoltman> mounted on top of existing 12mm MDF table
[21:47:32] <kfoltman> but it's not bent :)
[21:47:39] <cncformywife> what cad program you guys using?
[21:47:48] <kfoltman> cncformywife: draftsight
[21:48:01] <Loetmichel> <- corel draw 8 ;-)
[21:48:17] <kfoltman> o.O
[21:48:29] <cncformywife> so.. no 3d programs?
[21:48:47] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: I tried to seal it with carpenters glue, but I don't think it helped
[21:49:05] -!- likevinyl [likevinyl!~nerdos@unaffiliated/likevinyl] has parted #linuxcnc

[21:49:35] <kfoltman> will probably need to put proper sealant instead
[21:49:39] <cncformywife> kfoltman: too dark pic!

[21:52:13] <kfoltman> cncformywife: mostly, teething problems
[21:52:35] <kfoltman> up to now the table was bent so I couldn't do any engraving type tasks
[21:52:44] <cncformywife> teething??
[21:52:54] <kfoltman> as in, problems due to "not done properly yet"
[21:53:05] <kfoltman> I'm a beginner at this
[21:53:08] <XXCoder1> whew
[21:53:13] <cncformywife> me to..
[21:53:18] <XXCoder1> bit cloudy but hella lot humidity and heat
[21:54:11] <cncformywife> kfoltman: how the table get bent?
[21:54:27] <cncformywife> water?
[21:54:28] <XXCoder1> yeah how
[21:54:56] <kfoltman> cncformywife: not enough rigidity + ballscrew/rail connection sucks
[21:55:19] <kfoltman> the table practically sits on the carriage blocks for linear rails
[21:55:32] <kfoltman> but the ballscrew (for legacy reasons, let's say) is a few cm away
[21:55:43] <cncformywife> we need thamspeak server..
[21:56:27] <cncformywife> you can take a pic from the side?
[21:56:48] <kfoltman> you won't see anything, because the rail and the table is in the way
[21:57:23] <cncformywife> you build by any instractions?
[21:57:25] <kfoltman> I'll make a better pic tomorrow in daylight, so you'll be able to see the dodginess of the ballscrew mount in its full glory ;)
[21:57:43] <cncformywife> flash light...
[21:57:51] <kfoltman> still not enough light
[21:58:21] <kfoltman> I improvised the whole thing based on available materials/tools, so some parts are really bad

[22:03:31] <XXCoder1> actually once you have a crude cnc machone thats accurate enough
[22:03:37] <XXCoder1> you can build better machine with it.
[22:03:56] <XXCoder1> or upgrade parts
[22:04:01] <cncformywife> but you cant make same size..
[22:04:06] <cncformywife> only smaller..
[22:04:09] <XXCoder1> sure you can

[22:04:57] <cncformywife> and how you make the parts for it??
[22:05:06] <Loetmichel> on a friends CNC mill
[22:05:19] <Loetmichel> that was a engraver i modified to be a cnc mill
[22:05:23] <Loetmichel> 20 years ago
[22:05:25] <cncformywife> hehe LOL
[22:05:26] <cncformywife> <cncformywife> rule num 1! first pull cnc out of my ass
[22:05:28] <XXCoder1> most of parts is small enough. only few are not. You make large parts manually
[22:06:07] <cncformywife> but we dont have a friend with cnc!!
[22:06:16] <XXCoder1> you make your first cnc yourself
[22:06:26] <XXCoder1> I am building entire cnc machine manually
[22:07:20] <cncformywife> in my design i hope i can make it with only jigsaw..
[22:07:31] <cncformywife> this is all i have...
[22:07:36] <XXCoder1> I have tabl saw and drill press
[22:07:53] <cncformywife> you in NY?
[22:08:25] <cncformywife> XXCoder1: ^?
[22:08:55] <XXCoder1> me? sure. just 2,870 miles west
[22:09:12] <cncformywife> hehe..!
[22:09:20] <cncformywife> cool nice.
[22:09:26] <XXCoder1> heh
[22:09:40] <XXCoder1> went to interview at maryland twice and nj once
[22:09:47] <XXCoder1> didnt get job lol
[22:09:51] <kfoltman> cncformywife: well, 'my design' is a bit of overstatement, given that I borrowed ideas from everywhere
[22:10:02] <kfoltman> cncformywife: the frame is based on solsylva 13x13" machine
[22:10:28] <cncformywife> kfoltman: you see the rendering?

[22:12:13] <XXCoder1> unsupported is fine if larger diameter?
[22:12:17] <XXCoder1> like 30mm
[22:12:24] <kfoltman> especially if it has to withstand the load of large gantry / spindle
[22:12:28] <Loetmichel> XXCoder1: depends on travel
[22:12:44] <Loetmichel> 30mm would be ok for 300mm travel, not more
[22:12:46] <XXCoder1> Loetmichel: assume cnc's machine since it really is his design ;)
[22:13:14] <kfoltman> I'm sure there are calculators for deflection of an unsupported rod ;)
[22:13:22] <cncformywife> kfoltman: ^
[22:13:24] <XXCoder1> m sure too
[22:13:51] <kfoltman> anyway, nice rendering, but I wouldn't want that machine ;)
[22:13:59] <Loetmichel> i had one with 25mm unsupported and 1000mm*600mm travel...: you could pull the mill bit about 2mm with less than 10kg force

[22:14:15] <XXCoder1> still figuring lots stuff
[22:14:21] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: heh
[22:14:34] <XXCoder1> notice there is no motors yet and Z axis is impossible to place due to no room for motor
[22:14:41] <kfoltman> Loetmichel: I realized that my rails are not screwed to the base properly
[22:14:47] <kfoltman> only a few screws
[22:14:51] <Loetmichel> thats bad
[22:14:54] <kfoltman> so, plenty of deflection there as well
[22:14:59] <Loetmichel> use every aviable hole in the rails!
[22:15:07] <cncformywife> XXCoder1: what is the program that you use??
