[00:08:50] <witnit> pretty and powerful
[00:27:23] <XXCoder> would this work? http://www.amazon.com/Straight-Hinge-Lever-Basic-Switch/dp/B0050HKB8O/ref=pd_sim_pc_1?ie=UTF8&refRID=14F4DZZ9BVXRGGYSE59B
[02:10:00] <Deejay> moin
[08:10:30] <PetefromTn_> Well......I think I am deaf now!!
[08:11:34] <PetefromTn_> Thanks to ALICE IN CHAINS....
[08:11:50] <PetefromTn_> I can't hear nothing but ringing LOL
[08:14:34] <_methods> couldn't have been that good if you are up this early lol
[08:14:56] <_methods> unless you haven't gone to sleep yet
[08:15:15] <_methods> hehe
[08:15:48] <PetefromTn_> hehe
[08:16:15] <PetefromTn_> Yeah the only part that sucked was driving back from Cherokee thru the twisty mountain roads that late.
[08:16:23] <_methods> yeah
[08:16:29] <PetefromTn_> I slept in a LOT yesterday morning so I could do it LOL
[08:16:38] <PetefromTn_> Man they kicked some serious ass...
[08:16:38] <_methods> that's the worst part of going to concerts
[08:16:57] <_methods> last concert i went to was mastodon
[08:17:15] <_methods> crazy concert
[08:17:41] <PetefromTn_> trying to upload a short video and some pics I took with my cellphone here but the damn thing is not cooperating.
[08:18:00] <_methods> who opened for them?
[08:18:03] <PetefromTn_> I swear the floor in that building was moving like 2"
[08:18:08] <archivist> I blame wishbone ash for tinnitus
[08:18:25] <PetefromTn_> kinda scared me when everyone started really rocking I thought the floor was gonna cave in.
[08:19:04] <PetefromTn_> had a couple really drunk grungy looking bastards annoying my wife and I but they were nice so it was okay.
[08:20:05] <PetefromTn_> Jerry Cantrell melted our faces off all night with that lead guitar. It was awesomely LOUD...
[08:20:39] <PetefromTn_> The band that opened was called Kongo...they were a bunch of brothers from south Africa.
[08:20:44] <PetefromTn_> They were quite good actually.
[08:20:51] <PetefromTn_> Really got everyone ready for Alice.
[08:21:23] <PetefromTn_> Never heard of them but they were quite good.
[08:27:11] <PetefromTn_> Probably got some tinnitus here myself now hehe
[08:28:12] <archivist> yes but 40 years of tinnitus is not funny
[08:28:41] <_methods> yeah that sux
[08:28:48] <_methods> not much they can do for chronic tinnitus
[08:29:11] <archivist> I could hear my ears distort during that concert
[08:29:40] <PetefromTn_> It really was stupid loud but they sounded really good.
[08:31:28] <PetefromTn_> They played rooster, nutshell, man in the box, I stay away... and some stuff from their newer album. It was kickass..
[08:32:16] <PetefromTn_> they played them bones. I cannot remember all the songs.
[08:32:47] <PetefromTn_> We were like five people from the edge of the stage
[08:43:09] <Jymmmm> nosebleed section huh
[08:43:27] <PetefromTn_> LOL nope... GA and push to the front hehee
[08:44:28] <PetefromTn_> If I can get this damn video to upload I can show ya..
[09:14:42] <PetefromTn_> http://s150.photobucket.com/user/matospeter/media/VID_20140502_213928_zps69a55a1d.mp4.html?filters[user]=41042729&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=0 Finally LOL
[09:26:17] <Jymmmm> Uh, guess what...
[09:30:00] <PetefromTn_> what?
[09:30:10] <Jymmmm> doesn't play
[09:30:16] <PetefromTn_> really?
[09:30:22] <PetefromTn_> Lemme try again...
[09:30:24] <Jymmmm> yeah =(
[09:31:05] <PetefromTn_> http://s150.photobucket.com/user/matospeter/media/VID_20140502_213928_zps69a55a1d.mp4.html?filters[user]=41042729&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=0
[09:31:33] <PetefromTn_> that whole thing is the link dunno why the IRC breaks it up.
[09:31:43] <PetefromTn_> it plays for me an on facebook.
[09:32:02] <Jymmmm> the ink is fine, the page loads, just the video doesn't play
[09:32:06] <Jymmmm> link*
[09:32:43] <PetefromTn_> huh.
[09:32:50] <PetefromTn_> any suggestions?
[09:33:10] <PetefromTn_> I got it on my desktop I can post somewhere else.
[09:33:15] <PetefromTn_> Its just a 30 second vid/
[09:35:46] <PetefromTn_> tryin drop box
[09:36:32] <Jymmmm> I have 30s video on my desktop too... at 6MB/second =)
[09:48:45] <PetefromTn_> http://s150.photobucket.com/user/matospeter/library/Alice%20in%20Chains?sort=3&page=1
[09:48:54] <PetefromTn_> maybe this will work?
[09:51:29] <Jymmmm> It played once I downloaded the video
[09:52:34] <tjtr33> photobucket _still_ loading spinny wheel remember videobin.org
[09:52:41] <PetefromTn_> okay.
[09:52:51] <PetefromTn_> yeah PB kinda sucks I guess.
[09:53:19] <PetefromTn_> The video is of course a crappy cell phone video but it plays okay on my laptop. You can hear it at least LOL
[09:53:52] <PetefromTn_> tryin' to upload a second video now.
[09:55:33] <tjtr33> sorry,still loading, killing dload now
[09:55:50] <PetefromTn_> Videobin is actually going much faster.
[09:55:58] <PetefromTn_> hang on a sec LOL
[09:56:25] <Jymmmm> Nah, we're boed now and moving on to the next silly camera thing now
[09:56:58] <PetefromTn_> LOL I can't say as I blame ya.
[09:57:15] <PetefromTn_> Freakin' photobastards.
[09:57:29] <Jymmmm> Nah, I already saw it
[09:58:45] <PetefromTn_> It was quite a beautiful drive up to Cherokee tho.
[09:58:54] <PetefromTn_> at least on the way there
[09:59:01] <PetefromTn_> before we got tired and deaf.
[09:59:21] <PetefromTn_> You go right past Clingmans dome and the view is pretty cool.
[10:00:33] <PetefromTn_> basically all the way thru the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
[10:04:23] <Jymmmm> Now here is a sexy video... http://v7.tinypic.com/player.swf?file=24zkn4z
[10:04:40] <PetefromTn_> http://videobin.org/+7pl/a65.html
[10:05:17] <PetefromTn_> Wow that is fast
[10:05:43] <PetefromTn_> Two of the guys at work bought some ebay Chinese laser engraving machines and they are all gushing about it.
[10:05:54] <PetefromTn_> I am sure they will NOT perform like that tho.
[10:08:08] <Jymmmm> Not even close =)
[10:09:04] <Jymmmm> That's a 50W YaG Fiber laser... Somewhere in the $60,000 USD range =)
[10:10:42] <PetefromTn_> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reBPyJeyPac Pretty cool... combining Rock guitars and CNC..
[10:11:45] <IchGuckLive> hi all B)
[10:12:03] <IchGuckLive> PetefromTn_: did ypou see my result of the 5USD DVD laser
[10:12:22] <IchGuckLive> it has run today about 3houres
[10:13:22] <tjtr33> IchGuckLive, please post a link, i just thought of a use for a marker
[10:13:51] <IchGuckLive> tjtr33: on my youtube
[10:14:02] <tjtr33> magic33de ?
[10:14:05] <IchGuckLive> yes
[10:14:09] <tjtr33> thx
[10:14:22] <PetefromTn_> nope..
[10:14:25] <PetefromTn_> linky?
[10:14:36] <IchGuckLive> use the knowen lm317 driver
[10:15:14] <IchGuckLive> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkBes1XgfnI
[10:15:17] <PetefromTn_> http://videobin.org/+7pl/a66.html There both videos are posted now and can be seen on all my devices. Should work.
[10:16:16] <IchGuckLive> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1L1VR8U74us chere is the blanking added
[10:16:33] <tjtr33> both work fine
[10:16:42] <IchGuckLive> i can now go for 3 or 4 laser diodes on the same spot
[10:17:39] <IchGuckLive> so speed is up at 1500mm/min engraving at 0.2mm laser with
[10:17:52] <IchGuckLive> the 3D printer did a god job
[10:18:20] <tjtr33> focus 3 or 4 dvd lasers on same spot ?
[10:18:42] <IchGuckLive> yes
[10:18:57] <PetefromTn_> Ich man that is pretty cool.
[10:18:58] <tjtr33> cool idea, cheap for more power
[10:19:10] <IchGuckLive> http://www.ebay.de/itm/2x-45mm-Laser-Diode-Geha-use-Linse-TO-18-5-6mm-Neu-/370816066314?pt=Licht_Effekte&hash=item56565c230a
[10:19:11] <PetefromTn_> The machine sounds like a creaking door tho LOL
[10:19:38] <IchGuckLive> PetefromTn_: its to slow moving it is designed to punch the pcb at 800mm
[10:20:04] <PetefromTn_> is that wood material?
[10:20:11] <IchGuckLive> below 200 its a miss on l297/298
[10:20:15] <IchGuckLive> yes
[10:20:24] <PetefromTn_> not too shabby...
[10:20:42] <PetefromTn_> I need to fab up a mount for a laser to my VMC hehe
[10:20:46] <IchGuckLive> if you use tropic it smels the hole house
[10:21:03] <PetefromTn_> can you do plastics?
[10:21:20] <IchGuckLive> 3mm cut is posible but on 5 atempts
[10:21:31] <IchGuckLive> lops
[10:21:34] <IchGuckLive> o
[10:23:34] <IchGuckLive> i got only 16times dvds in use as i know the best wayto get it out on this parts
[10:23:48] <IchGuckLive> takes 1min to get the laser out
[10:23:59] <IchGuckLive> the 24times are now at 280mW
[10:24:01] <PetefromTn_> How does this compare to the chinese lasers people are getting for cnc routers?
[10:24:21] <IchGuckLive> you are joking !!
[10:24:31] <PetefromTn_> no..
[10:24:47] <PetefromTn_> what power is that one in the video?
[10:24:51] <IchGuckLive> 30W yag against 200mW red
[10:25:03] <IchGuckLive> this is 180mW
[10:25:39] <PetefromTn_> whats yag?
[10:25:52] <IchGuckLive> oh they use Co2
[10:26:42] <IchGuckLive> the green ones use Infrared to NdYd
[10:27:01] <Deejay> re-namd
[10:27:19] <IchGuckLive> if you can get a blueray this is on 500mW
[10:27:40] <IchGuckLive> the hell of wood engraving
[10:28:11] <IchGuckLive> on standard routers
[10:28:38] <IchGuckLive> the precicion on the china is crap as they got standard printer setup
[10:29:09] <IchGuckLive> some are also not able to move contuors
[10:29:18] <IchGuckLive> only line blanking
[10:29:37] <IchGuckLive> this gives you spot or wish things you dont want
[10:29:59] <tjtr33> oh like dot matrix printing, raster printing
[10:30:15] <IchGuckLive> yes
[10:30:59] <IchGuckLive> http://funofdiy.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/a-raspberry-pi-controlled-mini-laser.html
[10:30:59] <IchGuckLive> here is some interseting projekt
[10:31:11] <IchGuckLive> also the driver circuit
[10:31:27] <IchGuckLive> dont forget you need at least 5.6V
[10:31:43] <IchGuckLive> to get the lm317 work proper
[10:31:58] <IchGuckLive> at the 1.25V output Amp stage
[10:32:27] <PetefromTn_> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2e8EBAr5nTM neato
[10:32:46] <tjtr33> IchGuckLive, thx
[10:32:51] <IchGuckLive> NP
[10:32:56] <tjtr33> off to plant Zoysia grass
[10:33:13] <IchGuckLive> i can upload the eagle if you want with the 3stages i use
[10:33:47] <IchGuckLive> ok then till later BYE
[12:07:07] <witnit> 3AT collets, those are popular with benchtop machines?
[12:07:10] <witnit> www.ebay.com/itm/360919660454
[12:22:15] <boonkerz> hi
[12:22:22] <boonkerz> can i dist upgrade to 12.04?
[12:22:39] <boonkerz> and add new sources?
[12:25:46] <humble_sea_bass> it says dont do that over at linux cnc
[12:25:55] <CaptHindsight> http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?LinuxCNC_On_Ubuntu_Precise
[12:26:31] <humble_sea_bass> welp, told
[12:27:09] <XXCoder> I wouldnt upgrade past 109.04
[12:27:11] <XXCoder> 10.04
[12:27:16] <XXCoder> unity sucks
[12:27:39] <CaptHindsight> heh 14.04 is even worse
[12:27:50] <XXCoder> xubuntu maybe HMM
[12:27:52] <XXCoder> I love xfce
[12:27:52] * skunkworks_ has gotten used to unity...
[12:28:03] * skunkworks_ sort of likes it...
[12:28:07] <humble_sea_bass> more like defeated by
[12:28:13] <XXCoder> yep
[12:28:30] <XXCoder> man
[12:28:47] <XXCoder> wish I knew if sbr12 would be good enough for wood and light and slow alum milling
[12:29:50] <skunkworks_> 14.04 and my laptop runs cooler and faster.. really like it
[12:30:03] <XXCoder> skunk should try xfce
[12:30:15] <XXCoder> its bit hard to configure but once done.. its your ui, your rules
[12:30:25] <skunkworks_> I have been meaning to try others.. but just am comfortable
[12:30:30] <IchGuckLive> hi all
[12:30:34] <XXCoder> hey ich!
[12:30:45] <XXCoder> is sbr12 strong enough for wood and light alum?
[12:32:03] <IchGuckLive> the size of the rail is related to the mashine size not the material
[12:32:10] <XXCoder> oh really
[12:32:18] <XXCoder> so sbr12 is fine if small machine?
[12:32:30] <IchGuckLive> yes
[12:32:36] <IchGuckLive> 10inch
[12:32:41] <XXCoder> ok thanks. something to consider.

[12:34:33] <IchGuckLive> hi RogueWolf33
[12:34:39] <RogueWolf33> hi there
[12:34:45] <IchGuckLive> ;-)
[12:35:29] <IchGuckLive> with this nick you might get in trouble in germany RogueWolf33
[12:41:14] <RogueWolf33> Can someone tell me if there are any compataibility issues with the startech PCI-e Parallel Serial Combo Card With 16950 Uart ? I have it installed and it seems to be working, however, when I load up CRC, it does not seem to send the correct signals. From what I can tell, This card is utilizing the Oxford Semiconductor Espresso Family of PCI express if that helps. And let me just Preface this question with *Please be patient I
[12:42:11] <IchGuckLive> 16950 Uart is fine
[12:42:24] <XXCoder> http://www.ebay.com/itm/linear-rails-SBR12-16-20-6-supported-rails-12blocks-/250549051031?pt=BI_Heavy_Equipment_Parts&hash=item3a55e31e97
[12:42:27] <XXCoder> ich check this out
[12:42:31] <XXCoder> 3 different sizes
[12:42:46] <IchGuckLive> as i said depends on your need
[12:43:14] <IchGuckLive> if you got a 500lbs YZ set up it will fail
[12:43:23] <RogueWolf33> So I imagine this is more of a setup issue then. In CRC there is no driver identifiers for this card, is there a common one that seems to work better for general pcie cards?
[12:43:59] <XXCoder> 500 lb from milling pressure or just weight of gantry?
[12:44:12] <IchGuckLive> weight of gantry,
[12:44:54] <XXCoder> fixed gantry fixes that issue? well Z would have to deal witgh weight of router and stuff attached to it, but besides that..
[12:45:04] <IchGuckLive> RogueWolf33: what does "dmesg |grep par" give you
[12:45:35] <CaptHindsight> http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-THK-SR35-CNC-Linear-Slide-Rails-4-Ball-Bearings-Slides-Blocks-600mm-x-35mm-/350823460956 unless they are rusty or melted the worst square rail is better than any cheap round bearing rail

[12:46:24] <CaptHindsight> I have not found a good round bearing block from China yet
[12:46:41] <IchGuckLive> 0xe020 RogueWolf33 this is your parport adress
[12:47:47] <XXCoder> capt prices is also higher. I guess because of better quality
[12:48:19] <CaptHindsight> yes, 2-3 the price for >10x the quality and durability
[12:48:22] <RogueWolf33> Ich this would be utilized in the Stepconf setup I assume?
[12:48:23] <IchGuckLive> as i said over and over start low upgrate soon
[12:48:39] <IchGuckLive> RogueWolf33: yes
[12:48:49] <RogueWolf33> Ich roger that.
[12:48:56] <XXCoder> ich yeah. I'm looking for quality minium that I dont have to fix problems
[12:49:01] <CaptHindsight> the diameter of the bearings in the block and the amount of contact area
[12:49:33] <CaptHindsight> SBR has very very little contact area between the bearings and the rail
[12:49:39] <IchGuckLive> if you plan to go for a real cabable router start on sbr16 in X and Y
[12:50:05] <XXCoder> one I recently linked to has sbr 20 for x, y has sbr 16, z has sbr 12
[12:50:19] <CaptHindsight> square block is ~50%
[12:50:54] <CaptHindsight> SBR bearings are <1%
[12:51:03] <XXCoder> sigh so much thinking on rails lol if I had machinist skills I'd just use steel plates and make my own linear bearing stuff
[12:51:38] <IchGuckLive> CaptHindsight: as we speek price V Precision V speed
[12:52:25] <IchGuckLive> good price minimam precision acceptable speed
[12:52:50] <IchGuckLive> high speed no precision very good price
[12:53:02] <IchGuckLive> high speed high prexcision high price
[12:53:44] <XXCoder> one annoying thing is I'm unsure if I should buy rails and ball bearing screws seperately
[12:53:56] <XXCoder> because sizes seem to be always different
[12:54:24] <IchGuckLive> ballscrew is 25% shorter then rail
[12:54:36] <XXCoder> and I;'m unsure how to size match them. would say 300 mm ball screw work with 300 mm rails
[12:54:46] <CaptHindsight> http://www.pbclinear.com/images/blog/InvertedBearings.jpg
[12:54:53] <IchGuckLive> so you got 25% of god baring distance
[12:55:22] <IchGuckLive> 450mm rail
[12:55:25] <CaptHindsight> I'm not sure why people have been saying to mount the SBR like the middle picture
[12:55:42] <XXCoder> that picture is missing one load type
[12:55:48] <XXCoder> "down the rail" load.
[12:56:32] <IchGuckLive> for type at 6040 size i woud always go lmuu
[12:56:38] <IchGuckLive> bo SBR
[12:56:41] <IchGuckLive> no
[12:56:41] <CaptHindsight> http://machinedesign.com/motion-control/linear-motion-takes-shape
[12:57:12] <XXCoder> sigh maybe I should just buy ballscrews and think about rails later
[12:57:36] <XXCoder> brb a sec
[13:03:31] <CaptHindsight> http://www.designworldonline.com/control-engineers-guide-to-applying-linear-bearings-and-guides/
[13:04:46] <XXCoder> back
[13:06:20] <IchGuckLive> CaptHindsight: therefor i use LM UU
[13:06:41] <IchGuckLive> you got 8 contact points on the rail
[13:07:02] <XXCoder> http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-THK-Linear-Motion-Bearing-LM-ST-40-UU-HSR20A1SS-220L-/121144813249
[13:07:28] <IchGuckLive> my limit size is 60inch on that type
[13:07:34] <CaptHindsight> XXCoder: if you're not in a hurry you'll find deals on bearings, you just need to watch for them
[13:07:46] <XXCoder> cool
[13:07:58] <XXCoder> http://www.ebay.com/itm/LWES15-1540mm-Used-IKO-Linear-Bearing-LM-Guide-THK-SR15W-2Rail-4Block-lightweigh/191152792707?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222003%26algo%3DSIC.FIT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D22405%26meid%3D6643732518237672909%26pid%3D100005%26prg%3D8888%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D121144813249&rt=nc nice
[13:08:13] <XXCoder> but then I'd have to find ballscrew that big
[13:08:32] <IchGuckLive> ballscrew is only 2005
[13:08:34] <witnit> maybe sean could 3d print one for you :P
[13:08:34] <XXCoder> bit riciously large actually. 5' long
[13:08:51] <XXCoder> B{P
[13:08:57] <IchGuckLive> witnit: cheepr to buy
[13:09:01] <witnit> LOL
[13:09:35] <CaptHindsight> I haven't gotten a round bearing block from China yet that wasn't crunchy. I know that they can make them properly I just haven't found them yet.
[13:09:51] <witnit> rexroth is good yes?
[13:10:02] <IchGuckLive> they got screws inside to get tighter
[13:10:07] <XXCoder> this is cool, but HOW THE HELL CAN you attach anything to it??
[13:10:16] <IchGuckLive> rexroth is the best i know
[13:10:19] <CaptHindsight> yeah Bosch, and usually pricey compared to other just as quality vendors
[13:10:42] <IchGuckLive> FAG
[13:10:50] <XXCoder> er http://www.ebay.com/itm/12pcs-LM8UU-8mm-Linear-Ball-Bearing-Bush-Bushing-/290828158520?pt=BI_Heavy_Equipment_Parts&hash=item43b6b58638
[13:10:53] <XXCoder> forgot url lol
[13:11:06] <IchGuckLive> but now all parts are made in china only the precision is different
[13:11:25] <XXCoder> http://www.ebay.com/itm/linear-bearing-Rail-set-3-ballscrews-1605-ball-screws-3-BK12-BF12-3p-couplings-/251517462284?pt=BI_Heavy_Equipment_Parts&hash=item3a8f9be70c cheap but shipping.. not as cheap
[13:11:51] <IchGuckLive> XXCoder: the LM8UU are in mine laser masgine
[13:11:56] <CaptHindsight> ^^ probably crunchy
[13:12:27] <IchGuckLive> go for 16mm or 20mm
[13:12:27] <CaptHindsight> the THK round bearing blocks are probably great
[13:12:47] <IchGuckLive> but 3times the price
[13:13:04] <CaptHindsight> 3x the price of junk :)

[13:13:06] <witnit> OBO!
[13:13:07] <XXCoder> not too bad
[13:13:13] <IchGuckLive> the XYUVB got a 12pice set inside
[13:13:48] <CaptHindsight> I might get those :)
[13:14:54] <XXCoder> only one rail?
[13:14:55] <CaptHindsight> unless they are rusty or bent
[13:15:21] <CaptHindsight> cut it in half for 2 13.5" rails
[13:15:28] <humble_sea_bass> But the item has scratch and rust marks overall of rail.
[13:15:42] <XXCoder> and have half as many carrages (is that right word?)
[13:15:43] <IchGuckLive> im off
[13:15:44] <IchGuckLive> BYE

[13:17:12] <XXCoder> gonn run be back in bit
[13:17:28] <CaptHindsight> pop quiz in 3 hours
[13:22:40] <RogueWolf33> Ich should I leave everything else default in the setup? or is it specific to some standards? Currently I am showing a constant Electric climb on Pin 3 Which should be my X axis I believe?
[13:23:03] <RogueWolf33> It does not change when I press arrow keys to move the X axis in the program.
[13:27:01] <CaptHindsight> heh was looking up SS pins and google returned with WWII axis vs stainless steel

[13:31:06] <witnit> small multiaxis system? :)
[13:32:17] <CaptHindsight> perfect for a small pcb router
[13:32:35] <witnit> long lasting
[13:32:48] <witnit> could run day and night for 6 years and not get slop probably :P

[14:21:35] <gene78> Another silly Q from the SS gallery, from the docs as of last June, G10L2P1 can only rotate about the Z axis.
[14:21:59] <gene78> Has that been fixed to respond to the g18 etc commands?
[14:22:18] <gene78> That is in the current 2.5.4
[14:23:43] <gene78> If not, that is a revoltin development according to Jackie G.
[14:43:58] <XXCoder> back
[14:44:34] <XXCoder> 235mm hmm
[14:44:43] <XXCoder> 3 of em, but less than 1'x1'x1' space
[15:19:10] <XXCoder> whats difference with sbr and tbr
[16:14:01] <zeeshan> interesting looking vise
[16:14:03] <zeeshan> hmmm

[19:26:57] <jdh> http://raleigh.craigslist.org/bfs/4451858845.html
[19:33:36] <XXCoder> jdh: buying it?
[19:33:38] <XXCoder> or selling
[19:33:57] <jdh> neither. If there was one for half price I'd at least think about it.
[19:34:07] <jdh> I'd have to do some serious garage purging for space
[19:34:08] <XXCoder> ok
[19:42:13] <CaptHindsight> http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/understanding-basics-amorphous-iron-motors
[19:55:01] <gene78> grrr, I'm in the market for a small lathe. The headstock on my 7x12 is 15 thou out of alignment in 2.25" of travel, big at the chuck!
[19:58:05] <gene78> Correction, 15 thou isn't enough, trying 17.
[20:05:32] <XXCoder> gene78: irrepairable?
[20:07:56] <gene78> I finally got it at 18 thou. Fixable in programming of course, but finding the proper value is a PIMA. Using a dremel diamond disk, tipped enough to clear the center hub, to make the end of an 8mm2.5 screw look like about 7.96mm full length of 2.25"
[20:09:19] <gene78> So this is done, aqnd a postit goes on the shop door. Then I have got to go and feed us, its way past due. Tomorrow all Good night..
[20:09:30] <XXCoder> night
[20:26:51] <XXCoder> how much less precise is acme thread compared to ball thread?
[21:04:57] <somenewguy> horray, found a 48V transformer in my parts bin along w/ a monster rectifier and some caps
[21:05:08] <somenewguy> moving up in the world at last
[21:05:44] <XXCoder> lol
[21:06:15] <somenewguy> with my din rail (good bye velcro!) you'd think i might even know what Im doing lol
[21:06:28] <somenewguy> ...its a small controlls box, dont' judge
[21:07:23] <XXCoder> heh
[21:25:40] <jdh> realign the headstock?
[21:39:38] <witnit> din rails are quite handy
[21:39:51] <XXCoder> din rails?
[21:39:57] <Tom_itx> true that
[21:40:14] <Tom_itx> XXCoder google is your friend
[21:40:23] <XXCoder> google isnt magic but ok
[21:40:40] <jdh> if you have DIN rail, you obviously need panduit(tm)
[21:41:05] <XXCoder> this? http://www.amazon.com/Square-D-Channel-35mm-Rail/dp/B000CDBGM6
[21:42:08] <XXCoder> I'm guessing its not as strong as other raikls
[21:42:19] <XXCoder> and I probably wouldnt be able to mill alim using those rails
[21:42:22] <XXCoder> alum
[21:43:41] <witnit> just buy good used boxes with rails and components already loaded
[21:44:34] <XXCoder> so far 0.5m is very common
[21:44:39] <XXCoder> also none longer yet
[21:47:37] <Jymmm> pcw_home: Here go learn sumtin... http://www.dx.com/p/xilinx-xc9572xl-cpld-development-learning-board-w-4-led-deep-blue-295916
[21:55:22] <witnit> www.ebay.com/itm/321284908943 this would be a really good I/O box for running pneumatics via a mesa card, could probably plug the 50pin cable in for the mesa cards directly.
[21:55:44] <witnit> could do your inputs and outputs all in one shot
[21:56:49] <XXCoder> http://www.ebay.com/itm/linear-bearing-rails-slide-SBR12-500mm-6supported-rails-12blocks-/251522448352?pt=BI_Heavy_Equipment_Parts&hash=item3a8fe7fbe0
[21:56:55] <XXCoder> sbr12
[21:57:14] <XXCoder> z axis would be quite tall unfortunately so probably would have to cut
[22:07:11] <XXCoder> just bought http://www.ebay.com/itm/250729742630
[22:07:31] <XXCoder> it has quite beefy X axis rails and sizes is right for me
[22:08:10] <jdh> chai strikes again
[22:08:26] <XXCoder> ?
[22:08:52] <jdh> lmb2008 guys
[22:08:59] <XXCoder> ah
[22:10:25] <XXCoder> is that good or bad lol
[22:38:03] <tjtr33> Jymmm, Dangerous Prototypes has a 15$ version of same CPLD at seeedstudio ( and he's a user on this irc room )
[22:38:27] <tjtr33> only 72 cells but handy
[23:08:41] <skunkworks_> tjtr33: who?
[23:12:16] <Jymmm> tjtr33: I was just teasing pcw_home
[23:17:41] <tjtr33> skunkworks_, i ferget the nick here that lead me to dangerous prototypes. i may be mistaken but thought 'he' was behind that design 'label'
[23:20:02] <skunkworks_> huh - didn't know that
