[00:07:04] <t12> its midly hard to get the crimps right
[00:15:22] <RyanS_> I'm just trying to get a 5 inch chuckadapter sorted for the lathe, but I don't have any measurement tools I can trust
[00:38:32] <RyanS_> Really accurate can opener http://ecatalog.mitutoyo.com/Can-Seam-Micrometers-Series-147-C1126.aspx
[01:22:27] <t12> heh the transformer thumps when charging the caps
[01:33:28] <t12> https://www.dropbox.com/sc/9887nl0hx8lipfm/3Wy1v1O-hy
[01:33:31] <t12> partial success!
[01:51:05] <DJ9DJ> moin
[01:53:19] <CaptHindsight> t12: what value caps or part number?

[01:54:07] <t12> er
[01:54:10] <t12> 4400

[04:07:08] <Loetmichel> mornin'
[06:03:04] <jthornton> andypugh, what is gksudo?
[06:05:56] <jthornton> I noticed it in one of your posts
[06:06:24] <Valen> graphical sudo
[06:07:08] <jthornton> interesting
[06:07:23] <jthornton> how does that change from just sudo?
[06:08:05] <jthornton> oh it just gives y ou the black screen password prompt
[06:08:44] <jthornton> and you get the little black dots for your password a big help for windows users
[06:13:11] <Valen> yes
[08:30:56] <AndChat|681225> Test
[08:32:26] <PetefromTn> RY Lima Charlie
[08:32:55] <Heinz_63> Working :)
[08:59:23] <Loetmichel> <- designing monitor enclosure, second version ;)
[09:06:45] <Tom_itx> so i guess if i use the hal_manualtoolchange i can't hook into the iocontrol.0.tool-changed signal externally
[09:06:58] <Tom_itx> ?
[09:07:39] <Tom_itx> i'd like to leave it active in axis but add a button to my pendant for 'tool changed'
[09:08:41] <Tom_itx> i tried using an 'or2' on it but didn't get far
[09:19:03] <Tom_itx> or do i need to add 'loadusr io' even though the signals show up already?
[09:34:06] <Heinz_60> Pictures? @loetmichel
[09:34:30] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=14310
[09:34:40] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=14313
[09:36:51] <Heinz_60> Very nice
[09:37:26] <Loetmichel> second version will be 10mm more wide, so i can put in the lcd panel AFTER mounting the frame
[09:37:37] <Loetmichel> and made of 0,8mm brass sheet so i can solder it
[09:38:07] <Loetmichel> just trying to slice it to parts fitting my small mill ;-)
[09:39:02] <Heinz_60> PppppppppppppQAAa.zz
[09:39:10] <Heinz_60> Material?
[09:40:21] <Loetmichel> brass
[09:40:28] <Loetmichel> or did you ean the one on the photos?
[09:40:34] <Loetmichel> 2mm Lexan
[09:40:48] <Loetmichel> aehm... 2mm styrol glass
[09:40:52] <Loetmichel> not lexan
[09:41:07] <Loetmichel> and taped with aluminium foil tape
[09:41:47] <Heinz_60> Als Schirm?
[09:43:08] <Loetmichel> just for the optics
[09:43:16] <Loetmichel> its a prototype, anyway
[09:43:18] <Heinz_60> Oh ok
[09:43:36] <Loetmichel> just need some small moniotr for my mill
[09:43:49] <Loetmichel> because the 15" is way to big to fit in the rack
[09:44:08] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=12569
[09:44:59] <Heinz_60> Oh really big
[09:47:24] <Loetmichel> more like: the machine is a bit small
[12:14:32] <IchGuckLive> hi all
[12:14:51] <IchGuckLive> Heinz_60: does the isel turn
[12:24:53] <Heinz_60> Yeah, but wrong direction
[12:25:10] <IchGuckLive> the E7 pin
[12:25:17] <IchGuckLive> high low
[12:25:33] <IchGuckLive> put it to a 7i76 pin
[12:25:44] <IchGuckLive> and use it as direction output
[12:26:11] <Heinz_60> But how to change direction in linuxcnc
[12:26:30] <Heinz_60> Or in the c++ file
[12:26:39] <IchGuckLive> net spindle-fwd motion.spindle-forward =>
[12:26:58] <IchGuckLive> this will set the pin low or high
[12:28:42] <IchGuckLive> m3 CW M4 CCw
[12:29:37] <Heinz_60> Ok, will test it monday
[12:30:04] <IchGuckLive> does the componenent what it shoudt at 500 ,2500 and so o n
[12:30:34] <IchGuckLive> did you try to change speed within the mdi
[12:31:02] <Heinz_60> Yes and did a spindle bar
[12:31:16] <IchGuckLive> ok
[12:31:31] <IchGuckLive> so you are becoming a PRO within one week
[12:31:45] <IchGuckLive> B)
[12:32:02] <Heinz_60> Monday i will do a measurement for the Spiele speed
[12:32:06] <Heinz_60> Spindle
[12:32:24] <IchGuckLive> rpm meter
[12:32:35] <IchGuckLive> of scale aircroft modell is best
[12:32:59] <IchGuckLive> but i gues isel has some calbration done
[12:33:21] <Heinz_60> I hope so
[12:33:30] <IchGuckLive> Heinz_60: in the integrater manual look at page 156
[12:33:50] <IchGuckLive> to get the pins for your buttons and bars
[12:34:11] <Heinz_60> I have a bar
[12:34:34] <Heinz_60> And 3 hal Infos for homex
[12:34:50] <Heinz_60> Homey and z
[12:35:29] <IchGuckLive> the info shoudt be in the number bar on the screan
[12:35:34] <IchGuckLive> as it is homed
[12:35:48] <IchGuckLive> or manual button homing
[12:36:03] <Heinz_60> Yes, but info led for grenztaster
[12:36:06] <IchGuckLive> as i think it up to you
[12:36:17] <IchGuckLive> ok
[13:07:18] <Heinz_60> M
[13:08:02] <Heinz_60> M
[13:59:25] <JT-Shop> He has built up a reluctant expertise with these boards (he hates them), there are links to wikis, sample configs, pin outs, manuals etc in the various posts
[13:59:32] <JT-Shop> LOL at ArcEye
[14:11:22] <archivist> I wonder if Florian takes the bait :)
[14:12:09] <JT-Shop> if that is cncbasher yes he took the bait
[14:12:37] <JT-Shop> btw, I'm still filling the rotary table with oil :(
[14:12:39] <archivist> nah on the mailing list re vismach
[14:12:47] <archivist> hehe
[14:13:22] <archivist> mine never mentioned oiling it...so I didnt
[14:13:49] <JT-Shop> oh, I don't follow the mailing list too close... it's usually to confusing
[14:14:05] <archivist> I dont follow the forum...same reason
[14:22:09] <cradek> I gateway the forum to my email and then don't read that
[14:22:48] <andypugh> I read everything.
[14:23:10] <cradek> I probably read the subject lines on everything
[14:25:36] <archivist> I dont have any automation set up on my mail so I have to read something to ferret them away, beginning to hate mailing lists without [listname] where one has to dig deeper than subject sometimes
[14:26:25] <cradek> surely everyone has List-Id headers by now
[14:27:04] <cradek> I simply can't imagine tolerating email without smart filtering
[14:28:10] <JT-Shop> what does smart filtering do?
[14:28:49] <cradek> at the most basic level, put various things into various folders
[14:28:59] <JT-Shop> ah ok rules
[14:29:37] <cradek> but I have a little more smarts than that, for instance, things that are known to be periodic - the old ones get stuffed in a folder, so only the latest one is ever in my inbox
[14:29:39] <JT-Shop> that does help me putting dev in dev folder and user in user folder
[14:29:58] <JT-Shop> cool
[14:30:22] <cradek> a few important things, if seen, are forwarded as a text to my phone
[14:31:54] <cradek> like if certain things are seen on craigslist it forwards as a text, but waits until daytime so it doesn't wake me up
[14:32:17] <cradek> etc etc :-)
[14:32:21] <JT-Shop> that's pretty smart filtering
[14:32:56] <cradek> yeah time spent setting up smarts pays off many times over
[22:49:22] <tjtr33> yesterday Tom_itx mention kmaxon. that rang a bell, he'd done an ISA i/f for an XY EDM table http://www.users.qwest.net/~kmaxon/page/side/control17_137.htm
[22:49:30] <tjtr33> ^^ rare info, fwiw
[22:57:41] <Tom_itx> yeah he's done quite a bit of stuff
[23:31:46] <RyanS_> I can see a number of centreline /point to point calipers, but not a similar micrometer .... Seems strange
