[00:00:03] <LeelooMinai> It will pass fine - use thin Oracal they use to make signs. I did it many times
[00:00:20] <roycroft> i'm not dismissing your advice at all
[00:00:30] <roycroft> it's just a different unknown for me
[00:00:41] <LeelooMinai> http://imgur.com/sLaRJ
[00:01:06] <LeelooMinai> Just stick it on a paper, pass through, iron
[00:02:09] <roycroft> i would have to try it right away
[00:02:19] <roycroft> the printer i bought is refurbished, with a 30 day warranty
[00:02:42] <roycroft> i would want to do the experiment before the warranty expires
[00:03:42] <roycroft> i have a couple weeks, so i could give it a go in that time
[00:06:47] <roycroft> so this kind of stuff? :
[00:06:49] <roycroft> http://tinyurl.com/k8a3tjt
[00:07:14] <LeelooMinai> No, oracal 651
[00:07:23] <roycroft> ok, thanks
[00:07:27] <LeelooMinai> high gloss type
[00:09:45] <roycroft> so this stuff:
[00:09:47] <roycroft> http://tinyurl.com/ntsdefs
[00:10:15] <LeelooMinai> Yes, you will have supplie for 10 lifetimes though:)
[00:10:20] <LeelooMinai> supply*
[00:10:26] <roycroft> yes, that's quite a bit
[00:11:07] <LeelooMinai> Try to choose lighter colors - you will se the toner better
[00:11:17] <LeelooMinai> Or if you can transparent glossy that would be ideal
[00:11:19] <roycroft> yeah, the yellow should be pretty good
[00:11:21] <LeelooMinai> you can find*
[00:12:06] <roycroft> the first one i found was black
[00:12:11] <roycroft> i figured that would not work out very well
[00:23:13] * zeeshan is quickly realizing
[00:23:21] <zeeshan> to properly design circuits, and pcbs
[00:23:29] <zeeshan> you need to read a book, or take a class
[00:23:31] <zeeshan> so many little shits
[00:23:55] <zeeshan> The use of multiple vias in parallel lowers the overall inductance and is beneficial for connections to ground planes
[00:24:04] <zeeshan> im sure there is theory behind that :P
[00:26:55] <CaptHindsight> it gets trickier at high frequencies
[00:27:29] <CaptHindsight> but there's lots of well established techniques to follow
[00:28:09] <CaptHindsight> what you can get away with at low frequencies won't work well at high
[00:28:52] <CaptHindsight> multiple vias also increases the current capacity
[00:29:21] <CaptHindsight> filled vias also carry more current
[00:29:50] <CaptHindsight> solid cylinder vs a tube
[00:31:07] <CaptHindsight> there are hundreds of app notes on proper PCB layout
[00:31:23] <zeeshan> :P
[00:31:32] <zeeshan> its hard to randomly read
[00:31:35] <zeeshan> need an organized book
[00:31:50] <CaptHindsight> trace and space vs impedance
[00:32:09] <CaptHindsight> how to cross gaps in ground planes
[00:32:27] <CaptHindsight> layer spacing and copper thickness
[00:32:42] <CaptHindsight> dynamic impedance for multiple parallel signals
[00:33:03] <CaptHindsight> signals you don't want close to other signals
[00:33:24] <CaptHindsight> how to properly break out from BGA's
[00:34:02] <CaptHindsight> how to breakout from smt decoupling capacitors to vias and where to place them
[00:34:38] <LeelooMinai> zeeshan: I recommend this free app for PCB-related calculations: http://www.saturnpcb.com/pcb_toolkit.htm
[00:35:05] <zeeshan> LeelooMinai: to use that software
[00:35:09] <zeeshan> you'd need to understand vias? :)
[00:35:30] <LeelooMinai> Vias is a plated hole - there - you understed most of it now:)
[00:35:32] <zeeshan> this stuff is a whole new world for me
[00:35:36] <zeeshan> haha LeelooMinai
[00:35:55] <CaptHindsight> and then there are IPC rules on trace and space, hole side vs pad size, hole location to traces etc etc
[00:36:04] <CaptHindsight> side/size
[00:36:40] <LeelooMinai> They are more like guidlines though
[00:36:45] <LeelooMinai> guidelines*
[00:37:08] <CaptHindsight> depends on the board house
[00:37:35] <CaptHindsight> if you start pushing the limits they will complain about yields
[00:38:15] <LeelooMinai> I don't think zeeshan will be pushing a lot of limits with his first pcb:)
[00:38:21] <zeeshan> haha
[00:38:32] <zeeshan> i guarantee you it will set on fire
[00:38:33] <Cromaglious> sheeshz you'd think putting in a USB PCIe card wouldn't be that difficult
[00:38:48] <Cromaglious> USB 3 PCIe
[00:39:09] <CaptHindsight> looking back for really dense boards I'd use small board houses where the owner new the drilling machines so well he knew where it would have more or less repeatability
[00:39:16] <Cromaglious> ahh there's the light on my 1.5TG USB3 drive
[00:39:30] <Cromaglious> just waiting for it to show up in explorer now
[00:40:27] <LeelooMinai> zeeshan: My last design was 4 layer tiny board: http://i.imgur.com/0a0OqH4.png
[00:40:35] <Cromaglious> hehe design 6 board onto one PCB then take a band saw and cut them apart?
[00:40:44] <zeeshan> LeelooMinai --- Level 99 achieved
[00:41:01] <zeeshan> that looks cool and fancy
[00:41:04] <LeelooMinai> FPGA + 1Gb ethernet
[00:41:16] <zeeshan> what was the point of it
[00:41:54] <LeelooMinai> It's for capturing trace data from ARM micros mostly and as a general gateway to 1G ethernet. Has also 1 Gb mDDR on it
[00:42:41] <Cromaglious> love the equal length traces going to the ethernet RJ45 port
[00:43:13] <CaptHindsight> zeeshan: layout your board and then post your files, we'll give you suggestions and point out any errors
[00:43:26] <LeelooMinai> But I don't really plan to go much more crazy than this... because I am just a hobbyist and big PCBs with more than 4 layers and some crazy specs, buried vias, etc. have still crazy prices. I don't want to pay $1k for pcb:)
[00:43:28] <zeeshan> im just laying out the schematic right now
[00:43:52] <zeeshan> LeelooMinai: how long did that take you to design
[00:43:59] <Cromaglious> My uncleeee worked at Texas Instruments back in the day... 10ns delay line... easy... just run a trace around the 10"x10" board
[00:44:11] <Cromaglious> err 100 or even 200ns
[00:44:36] <LeelooMinai> zeeshan: I am pretty easy going with my projects - do some work, then leave them alone, then go on some crazy binge and do a lot - cannot really tell:)
[00:45:25] <LeelooMinai> But if you want to do things the nice way, it takes time.
[00:45:38] <LeelooMinai> "never trust the aturouter" :)
[00:45:44] <zeeshan> hehe
[00:45:49] <zeeshan> did you work off datahseets
[00:45:54] <zeeshan> to figure out what components you needed?
[00:46:12] <CaptHindsight> http://imagebin.ca/v/1uJ6OZ4wgxeN don't worry, your board won't be anything like this :)
[00:46:13] <LeelooMinai> As opposed to what? Talking to magical Elves? :)
[00:46:48] <zeeshan> nah, like going back to the basics
[00:46:52] <CaptHindsight> you just need a low noise board with that 24b dac and clean power
[00:46:54] <zeeshan> and figure it out from electrical theory :P
[00:47:57] <LeelooMinai> zeeshan: Well, there's no lying - you need to know lot's of basics for the layout/design - so you can take into accout all details that normally you would not even be aware of.
[00:48:09] <zeeshan> exactly
[00:48:21] <zeeshan> its like mech eng design
[00:48:33] <LeelooMinai> But you may get away with it for some projects... But that's like blind chicken sometimes finding a grain:)
[00:48:33] <CaptHindsight> you'll learn by doing
[00:48:39] <zeeshan> theres so many failure modes
[00:49:34] <LeelooMinai> zeeshan: But to make you feel better, I am new to electronics relatively - maye 3 years and for the rest of time I was programming mostly.
[00:50:25] <Cromaglious> hehe I need a transmitter board.. 1.248Ghz oscillator with AM NTSC video injection and FM WB audio injection with 1watt out
[00:50:26] <zeeshan> hehe
[00:51:36] <zeeshan> https://www.dropbox.com/s/uu6uwjkm1zgdijo/circuit.pdf?dl=0
[00:51:40] <zeeshan> so this is pretty much what im trying to do
[00:51:46] <zeeshan> 2 thermo couples, 4 strain gages
[00:52:00] <CaptHindsight> http://www.mypage.tsn.cc/dakiller/dac1/dacb.png a beginners 24bit audio dac board
[00:52:29] <zeeshan> something will communicate over spi
[00:52:30] <zeeshan> with em
[00:52:41] <zeeshan> it'd be nice to do it directly from usb using that module LeelooMinai posted earlier
[00:56:15] <Cromaglious> oops it's changed 1.28925 Ghz
[00:57:32] <zeeshan> lagg
[00:59:43] <CaptHindsight> zeeshan: Mesa also has that 6-SPI to anything IO card
[01:00:05] <zeeshan> 7i46?
[01:00:11] <CaptHindsight> yes
[01:01:41] <zeeshan> hm
[01:01:52] <zeeshan> but i'd still need something else to interface it with the computer
[01:02:53] <CaptHindsight> is this separate from your mill?
[01:02:58] <zeeshan> yes
[01:03:11] <CaptHindsight> 7i43
[01:03:51] <zeeshan> arduino uno is like 30 bux
[01:03:55] <zeeshan> and will interface with this
[01:03:57] <zeeshan> for this application
[01:04:02] <LeelooMinai> zeeshan: That's one of my recent projects. I circled the IC that is I2C to USB bridge, same idea as with SPI, it's relatively simple to add it to your design as you can see. http://i.imgur.com/95d7vn1.jpg
[01:04:39] <zeeshan> your board looks so nice
[01:04:39] <zeeshan> :D
[01:05:13] <zeeshan> http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/22288A.pdf
[01:05:17] <zeeshan> i came across this while goolging
[01:06:07] <LeelooMinai> I also wrote an app that used that USB bridge to monitor the whole board: http://i.imgur.com/Evamdnk.png
[01:06:36] <LeelooMinai> I would go with a bridge like that instead of external Arduino or other monstrosity.
[01:06:38] <renesis> leeloominai: ground loop, how considerate
[01:06:51] <zeeshan> yea it makes no sense to run an uno
[01:06:55] <zeeshan> just for spi communication
[01:07:02] <zeeshan> but it is 28$ :P
[01:07:36] <LeelooMinai> The extra usb connector + bridge IC will be probably like $5
[01:08:04] <LeelooMinai> renesis: You mean test point? Ground loops are bad:p
[01:08:20] <zeeshan> ive had enough of electronics for this week
[01:08:26] <zeeshan> its time to get back to mech eng!
[01:08:27] <zeeshan> :]
[01:08:33] <zeeshan> brain is too saturated
[01:08:55] <LeelooMinai> It's too late - now you will not be able to sleep until you complete your first pcb design.
[01:08:56] <renesis> leeloominai: technically its both! but yeah those things save me a lot of time, rarely there
[01:09:12] <zeeshan> hahaha
[01:09:43] <renesis> layout is def one of my favorite parts of the art
[01:10:16] <renesis> its like ceramics, functional art
[01:10:49] <LeelooMinai> What is ceramics though? :)
[01:11:05] <renesis> mud tech
[01:11:14] <LeelooMinai> Making pots and stuff?
[01:11:18] <renesis> yeah
[01:12:04] <renesis> ceramics will get shit from other art fields because a lot of it is functional
[01:12:29] <renesis> painters and sculptors talk shit
[01:12:35] <LeelooMinai> Lots of art is functional though
[01:12:47] <renesis> fine art typically isnt
[01:12:49] <LeelooMinai> Or at least can be
[01:13:05] <renesis> but yeah anyone who does technical stuff sees a lot of work as someones art
[01:14:10] <LeelooMinai> There's a saying "stat of the art" after all and people use it for many technical devices:)
[01:14:14] <LeelooMinai> state*
[01:14:17] <renesis> even if its as basic as, this is an expression of dudes mood at the office during this project
[01:15:01] <LeelooMinai> Also, arts is rather subjective - what is art for one person may be meaningless to another
[01:16:28] <renesis> you can definitely look at a PCB and connect it to cultures and eras
[01:17:26] <LeelooMinai> Yes, if it has a lot of hot glue on it and bode wires, it's from China:)
[01:17:33] <LeelooMinai> bodge*
[01:18:14] <LeelooMinai> j/k, Chine can design nice pcbs if they want
[01:21:33] <zeeshan> man tomorrow is going to be a long day
[01:21:45] <zeeshan> gotta prepare samples with known indentation depths
[01:21:53] <zeeshan> so gonna use a ball nose end mill to make some cuts
[01:22:10] <CaptHindsight> zeeshan: any masks yet?
[01:22:19] <zeeshan> then gotta laser cut a bunch of stuff for students
[01:22:21] <zeeshan> CaptHindsight: yes
[01:22:24] <zeeshan> i already tried it out
[01:22:25] <zeeshan> and failed
[01:22:26] <zeeshan> lol
[01:22:31] <zeeshan> the dots are too big
[01:22:32] <CaptHindsight> \0/
[01:22:43] <zeeshan> i was thinking of using an air brush to spray it
[01:22:55] <CaptHindsight> to large a diameter?
[01:23:00] <zeeshan> nah to a fine mist
[01:23:03] <zeeshan> so the dots are small
[01:23:06] <zeeshan> but i dont know if that will work
[01:23:25] <CaptHindsight> the dots on the mask are too large a diameter?
[01:23:25] <zeeshan> im using our 3d microscope to do measurements right now
[01:23:33] <zeeshan> CaptHindsight: nah theyre small
[01:23:42] <zeeshan> but i dunno, when it goes through the mask
[01:23:47] <zeeshan> it spreads out a big making them huge
[01:24:50] <CaptHindsight> substrate, photopolymer, mask and then light source?
[01:25:18] <CaptHindsight> is the mask right on top of the polymer, in contact with it?
[01:25:32] <zeeshan> yep
[01:25:44] <CaptHindsight> whats the mask material?
[01:25:57] <zeeshan> .050 thick acrylic
[01:26:04] <zeeshan> i just cut it on the laser cutter
[01:26:09] <CaptHindsight> inch?
[01:26:11] <zeeshan> yea
[01:26:39] <CaptHindsight> is the mask on only one side of the film?
[01:27:00] <zeeshan> yea
[01:27:12] <zeeshan> do you think i can air brush this photopolymer?
[01:27:59] <CaptHindsight> http://openlunchbox.com/smf/index.php?topic=40.msg94#msg94
[01:28:09] <CaptHindsight> 2nd link
[01:28:22] <CaptHindsight> yeah, you can air brush it
[01:28:36] <CaptHindsight> i think I kept the viscosity low
[01:28:44] <zeeshan> can i mix it with some solvent
[01:28:46] <zeeshan> to thin it even more?
[01:29:17] <CaptHindsight> it's 100% solids right now, 0 solvent
[01:29:21] <zeeshan> ah
[01:30:01] <CaptHindsight> if you introduce an organic solvent then you'll need to remove all the solvent before exposure/curing
[01:30:01] <zeeshan> ill go through these papers tomorrow
[01:30:04] <zeeshan> really sleep :p
[01:30:06] <zeeshan> ah
[01:30:31] <CaptHindsight> 405nm laser and inverse microscope
[01:31:33] <CaptHindsight> I can also send you functional solvent
[01:32:03] <zeeshan> i think i have enough of this
[01:32:08] <zeeshan> to try to spray it with an air brush
[01:32:10] <zeeshan> and see what happens
[01:32:12] <zeeshan> if its clogging up
[01:32:22] <zeeshan> then ill look into a solvent
[01:32:23] <CaptHindsight> it won't clog
[01:32:55] <CaptHindsight> it won't dry until you expose it
[01:32:56] <zeeshan> okay then air brushing will definitely be the best technique!
[01:33:02] <zeeshan> will be a bit hard in the dark :)
[01:33:15] <CaptHindsight> not dark just not in the window
[01:33:24] <zeeshan> wait what?
[01:33:29] <zeeshan> i can have the room lights on?
[01:33:35] <zeeshan> i've been doing this stuff in a complete dark room
[01:33:35] <zeeshan> haha
[01:33:57] <CaptHindsight> depends on the lights, might be few minutes might be hours until it cures
[01:34:09] <zeeshan> i guess i can test a small amount of it
[01:34:24] <CaptHindsight> i mix it with my high bay lights on 24 ft away
[01:34:54] <CaptHindsight> keep it away from sunlight
[01:35:11] <CaptHindsight> just a drop on a piece of paper
[01:35:23] <CaptHindsight> it will shift color after cure
[01:35:35] <CaptHindsight> yellow/orange to white
[01:35:57] <zeeshan> yea
[01:36:05] <zeeshan> i noticed that :)
[01:36:14] <CaptHindsight> magic
[01:36:27] <zeeshan> hehe
[01:36:59] <CaptHindsight> does it adhere well to the plastic?
[01:37:40] <zeeshan> seems like it
[01:37:43] <zeeshan> i cant scratch it off the smp
[01:37:51] <CaptHindsight> great
[01:38:02] <zeeshan> its a hell of a lot better than the spray paint
[01:38:03] <CaptHindsight> is that a polyester?
[01:38:04] <zeeshan> we've been using
[01:38:11] <zeeshan> no i think its some urethane
[01:38:24] <zeeshan> they are very tight lipped about the composition
[01:38:30] <CaptHindsight> ah ok, thats a blend of epoxy
[01:38:57] <CaptHindsight> and 2 monomers
[01:39:14] <CaptHindsight> I think IBOA and TPGDA
[01:39:30] <zeeshan> okay mr chemist
[01:39:31] <zeeshan> :)
[01:39:49] <zeeshan> fancy terms are too big for mech eng!
[01:40:11] <CaptHindsight> initials for name 57 characters long
[01:41:09] <CaptHindsight> nope ethoxylated trimethyolpropane triacrylate
[01:44:25] <CaptHindsight> http://ma.ecsdl.org/content/MA2012-02/59/3990.full.pdf#page=1&view=FitH
[01:44:48] <CaptHindsight> you might be able to find all these parts in your labs
[03:04:14] <MacGalempsy_> makin progress is fun!
[03:04:32] <MacGalempsy_> blew the interior LED...
[03:16:21] <Deejay> moin
[03:29:10] <MacGalempsy_> hi deejay
[03:44:03] <renesis> http://www.allelectronics.com/make-a-store/item/1n914/switching-diode/1.html
[03:44:09] <renesis> holy fuck those went up
[03:44:26] <renesis> i remember they would gives me hundreds on tape for a few dollars
[03:44:33] <MacGalempsy_> oh well, I will order a lower power one
[03:45:10] <renesis> so i had a big roll of those glass diodes, if you gives them like half an amp they turn in nice warm light LEDs
[03:45:20] <renesis> and then they die, but who cars because you have hundreds
[03:45:29] <renesis> its like bubble wrap
[03:45:36] <MrSunshine> renesis: welly ou stil do if you buy 100 ? :P
[03:45:39] <MrSunshine> thats 5$
[03:46:10] <renesis> they were way cheaper, i think they had a huge spool at the time
[03:46:35] <renesis> like, diodes per penny, not pennies per diode
[03:48:26] <archivist> look for 1n4148
[03:48:45] <archivist> which is near enough the same
[03:48:55] <renesis> well i think thats why 1n914 was cheap, obsoleted p/n
[03:49:33] <renesis> or maybe was in store price
[03:49:42] <archivist> they see $ when stuff becomes r@re
[03:49:59] <renesis> anyway 1n914 is better to use because porsche 914 are awesome
[03:50:02] <MacGalempsy_> renesis: you drive del puerto canyon yet:
[03:50:03] <MacGalempsy_> ?
[03:50:05] <renesis> thats my professional opinion
[03:50:15] <renesis> macgalempsy_: i might in a week
[03:50:35] <renesis> i shouldnt, its prob 3x the gas and time compared to cutting across on the 156
[03:51:09] <MacGalempsy_> its like disneyland, go once for the hell of it
[03:51:11] <renesis> but a friend passed away and am going to his life celebration party thing, and he would have been down with me driving that way
[03:51:20] <archivist> I wonder how many 914/4148s I have fitted in pcbs and soldered
[03:51:22] <renesis> i should take the 5, im going to valencia
[03:52:42] <renesis> and maybe itll rub out my front tires a bit
[03:53:12] <renesis> since i only drive highway, after alignment, my rears seem to be wearing same or faster than fronts
[03:53:25] <renesis> silly fwd car, youre not supposed to do that
[03:54:37] <renesis> everything even, like 15k on falkens and way more than half tread remaining (i get 30k out of them at best)
[03:54:44] <MacGalempsy_> two major obsticles. one is it is open range, if your car is too low it may be difficult to get over the cattle gaurds.
[03:55:02] <MacGalempsy_> two, it goes to one lane in many places, so beware for head ons
[03:55:10] <renesis> its not lowered, its bit low tho
[03:55:20] <renesis> right im used to that type of stuff
[03:56:02] <renesis> i dont drive faster than i can see, usually even on roads im pretty familiar with
[03:56:51] <renesis> macgalempsy_: so it hits the 130 i think and you pass an observatory and power out in lower SJ, right?
[03:57:01] <renesis> er, pop out

[04:15:22] <MacGalempsy_> Tecan: why not just use the edge of the tooth brush and the sink?
[04:15:46] <renesis> he can do that when the tube roller breaks
[04:16:21] <renesis> macgalempsy_: thanks man, i think im gonna do it
[04:16:44] <MacGalempsy_> the first time I did it was pre-internet
[04:16:44] <renesis> looks okay dont think itll hurt the car and that was my only concern
[04:16:54] <MacGalempsy_> weekday there was noone out there
[04:17:35] <MacGalempsy_> there use to be a couple of places between 99 and 5 that you could limit out
[04:18:18] <renesis> i dont like getting fast around the ag farms
[04:19:00] <MacGalempsy_> all those portagees love that shisa
[04:19:03] <renesis> like, grazing farms you can see into the fields, plants im always worried tractor or some worker gonna pop out
[04:19:42] <renesis> but like, canyons and rolling hills with cows ill get into it
[04:19:59] <renesis> the cows dont move so fast
[04:20:02] <renesis> or at all
[04:22:39] <MacGalempsy_> yeah they are sucky. also strawberry pass which is the only one that goes over the sierras between tahoe and yosemite
[04:23:14] <MacGalempsy_> that one in a weekday during the summer is pretty awesome, but you find yourself going slow because the views are so awesome
[04:23:45] <renesis> oh man i trip out when i passenger on roads i like driving
[04:23:53] <renesis> so much shit i dont see
[04:24:53] <renesis> this guy gets over the yellow line too much
[04:27:52] <MacGalempsy_> there is a road that goes between 5 and 1 through the marble mountain wilderness, its pretty tite
[04:30:54] <MacGalempsy_> speaking of driving, I got to head to OKC tomorrow...
[04:31:02] <MacGalempsy_> 3.5 hrs down the drain
[04:31:05] <MacGalempsy_> each way
[04:36:02] <MacGalempsy_> renesis: skyline blvd dropping into Santa Cruz is good too
[04:38:52] <renesis> too out of the way unless i was coming from OR or something near the coast

[04:40:59] <XXCoder> welcome to deaf news http://picpaste.com/deafnews.jpg
[04:41:03] <XXCoder> I have seen worse
[04:41:32] <MacGalempsy_> lolk
[04:41:49] <XXCoder> it tend to be fine but once a while.. :P
[04:43:39] <MacGalempsy_> this Dan Gelbert series is great
[04:44:20] <MacGalempsy_> I think waterjets give him a chubby because he can't go 5 minutes without talking about them
[04:46:42] <XXCoder> lol
[04:48:00] <MacGalempsy_> bbiab
[06:59:31] <Swapper> anyhone have any thaughts on this error ?

[06:59:33] <Swapper> Makefile:7: *** Required files for building components not present. Install emc2-dev. Stop.
[07:00:00] <Swapper> i have tried with halcompile but it dosnt support .c files
[07:00:03] <Swapper> in userspace
[07:00:34] <archivist> did you install the dev stuff as the last error
[07:00:59] <Swapper> i installed linuxcnc-dev - PC based motion controller for real-time Linux
[07:01:19] <Swapper> since emc2-dev is "old" ?
[07:02:04] <Swapper> if i run the precompiled binary i get this error: ./atv_vfd
[07:02:04] <Swapper> ./atv_vfd: error while loading shared libraries: libemchal.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
[07:02:16] <archivist> iirc some others have had trouble using comp, it may have moved or you forgot the ./something to set the environment
[07:11:46] <Swapper> extremly vague info on how to get these module running
[07:18:42] <archivist> I cannot help by looking at docs etc as my internet is half dead
[07:18:54] <Swapper> yea np
[07:19:00] <Swapper> think ill make a post on the forums
[07:19:03] <Swapper> this seems weerd
[07:19:08] <archivist> strange that IRC is running but not html
[07:19:09] <Swapper> and oldish
[07:20:44] <skunkworks> it is halcompile now depending on your version
[07:21:30] <skunkworks> 'halcompile'
[07:21:50] <Swapper> cant use halcompile on .c user comps
[07:21:52] <Swapper> its says
[07:22:20] <Swapper> the "manual" for the vfd comp says i should compile it with "make"
[07:22:25] <skunkworks> ah
[07:23:27] <Swapper> The required program "comp" could not be found
[07:23:27] <Swapper> The required program "comp" could not be found
[07:23:27] <Swapper> Makefile:7: *** Required files for building components not present. Install emc2-dev. Stop.
[07:23:32] <Swapper> and there i get that
[07:24:52] <Swapper> but its hard to install emc2-dev when all is ref to linux-cnc dev nowadys
[07:26:07] <Swapper> this is the files i got http://git.mah.priv.at/gitweb?p=emc2-dev.git;a=commit;h=04e08b52b28732b4bf2fb0dd7283fe7496741167
[07:26:36] <Swapper> any "Martin Kaplan" here ? :)
[08:15:59] <_methods> heh sweet just scored a 18x24x2 surface plate for free
[08:17:40] <_methods> oh it's 18x24x4 with side wings
[08:18:09] <_methods> didn't see that the bottom was hidden by the stand
[08:22:02] <Swapper> nice one
[08:25:00] <SpeedEvil> :)
[08:25:27] <SpeedEvil> 'just move it, I don't care' ?
[08:25:36] <SpeedEvil> Actually - that's not that heavy
[08:27:05] <_methods> yeah it's in bad shape but i don't care
[08:27:22] <_methods> i'm just going to use it in the garage
[08:28:09] <SpeedEvil> Surface plates make great anvils.
[08:28:18] <_methods> yeah someone used it for that
[08:28:23] <SpeedEvil> Sigh
[08:28:25] <_methods> one corner is busted off
[08:28:42] <_methods> i guess some welders got ahold of it
[08:29:37] <_methods> god bless their simple souls
[08:30:03] <_methods> i'm pretty sure to them a granite surface plate is just a rock
[08:30:25] <_methods> so smashing stuff against it "just makes sense"
[08:30:53] <_methods> they are right though because it is a rock
[08:33:28] <_methods> and micrometers are just tiny c-clamps
[08:47:02] <miss0r|shop> turning down the flange of a ballnut. This is hardened alot :)
[08:53:49] <Swapper> i chopped mine off with a angle grinder
[08:55:26] <Swapper> guess you havnt find any smaller ones that you where looking for?
[08:55:30] <miss0r|shop> I'm afraid of the heat, so I am taking it slowly with cabide inserts
[08:56:07] <miss0r|shop> well. I DID find something close to what I was looking for, but they were massively expensive, so I went for the cheap solution, and just decided to machine them my self.
[08:56:19] <miss0r|shop> Did you get my PM about the microstepping?
[08:56:48] <Swapper> yea i forgot tho awnser
[08:56:50] <Swapper> nice one
[08:56:56] <Swapper> atleast its working now ?
[08:57:04] <miss0r|shop> i'm not sure it is nice :)
[08:57:21] <Swapper> no i where sarcastic :)
[08:57:22] <miss0r|shop> well, the Z-axis is working now. but I am a bit bummed about the solution, I realy didn't want to do microstepping.
[08:57:33] <Swapper> why not ?
[08:57:36] <miss0r|shop> sarcasm doesn't always translate on IRC
[08:57:38] <Swapper> step speed ?
[08:57:48] <Swapper> no i guess it dont
[08:57:50] <miss0r|shop> well, every time I do microstepping I loose torque
[08:58:03] <Swapper> get higer voltage :)
[08:58:36] <miss0r|shop> sure sure... now I have this. I want this to work. and, I think I can settle at 70%tq.
[08:58:54] <miss0r|shop> I think the z-axis can benchpress me without problems
[09:00:42] <miss0r|shop> I am just a bit worries about the X&Y axis - theres a lot of friction in this type of table
[09:02:19] <miss0r|shop> however, while waiting for the ballscrews to arraive, I managed to complete my home cinema. 109" widescreen with a 1080P LED projector and full surround :)
[09:02:26] <miss0r|shop> That made the misses happy ;)
[09:06:14] <Swapper> hehe real nice
[09:12:53] <Swapper> get some kickers and it will be a real experiance :)
[09:15:13] <miss0r|shop> I have two in there. Also, some time next week, 4x real cinema chairs will arraive - I bought them used from a cinema getting new ones. (I took 4 from the left side of the front row - looks new)
[09:36:34] <furrywolf> I hate daylight savings.
[09:44:01] <SpeedEvil> I hate daylight.
[09:44:14] <SpeedEvil> (not really)
[09:44:58] <Swapper> miss0r|shop: Sounds like a real nice rig
[09:45:04] <Swapper> in basment or ?
[09:54:52] <furrywolf> SpeedEvil: I like daylight. I also like when daylight occours at the same time every day.
[09:55:32] <tjtr33> !later Cromaglious your 'touch gauge' looks like an LVDT . if so, its a better search term.
[09:55:33] <the_wench> will tell Cromaglious when he/she joins next
[10:04:30] <sliptonic> When I launch linuxcnc (debian wheezy) axis always starts up hidden. Even with a .axisrc file specificying location, I have to alt-tab to get it to show.
[10:06:27] <sliptonic> If I load scaragui from the hal file, it (scaragui) shows up immediatly and axis loads a couple seconds later but is hidden.
[10:06:58] <furrywolf> broken window manager?
[10:07:51] <sliptonic> Same behaviour on two different machines with wheezy.
[10:12:52] <archivist> my web is dead grrr, can someone do a traceroute www.collection.archivist.info -p80
[10:13:12] <archivist> I think it dies in the ISP
[10:14:51] <tjtr33> 171.697ms to
[10:15:59] <Rab> Seems like it dies after, is that what you wanted?
[10:16:20] <malcom2073> The server itself pings, but I'm on windows so I can't tracert on port 80
[10:17:18] <archivist> outgoing when testing p80 I see it die inside BT at
[10:17:57] <archivist> seems there is a port 80 block, irc and all the other ports work ok
[10:18:15] <skunkworks> hosting porn again?
[10:18:28] <archivist> I meant
[10:18:35] <archivist> I wish
[10:18:57] <archivist> I bet their bill paying nag is faulty
[10:19:41] <archivist> been to another site and rattled the fault contact on their messaging toy but got nowhere
[10:25:56] <furrywolf> Rab: you're hitting traceroute's default limit of 30 hops.
[10:26:26] <furrywolf> although that is also the last hop that answers. lol
[10:26:50] * furrywolf had to add a -m100
[10:27:12] <archivist> with and without p80 I get different results for www.google.co.uk
[10:27:36] <archivist> frustrating
[10:30:24] <furrywolf> lol, I tried doing a tcptraceroute, and my isp intercepted it. I hate my isp.
[10:30:56] <furrywolf> brb
[10:33:59] <JT-Shop> /me just unloaded 600lbs of steel... glad I didn't order it all at once
[10:35:13] <Rab> furrywolf, is hop 19 for me.
[10:36:00] * SpeedEvil imagines JT-Shop in a powerloader.
[10:36:38] <archivist> I imagine he cheated with a loading shovel
[10:36:39] <SpeedEvil> https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B_riYuiUYAIhxto.jpg
[10:36:53] <SpeedEvil> Ideal shop equipment.
[10:37:03] <SpeedEvil> (the exoskeleton, not the alien)
[10:38:01] <jthornton> all by hand
[10:38:11] <jthornton> I had them cut the 20' pieces in half
[10:41:37] <archivist> interesting it stopping at as is the first ip I see outbound
[10:43:27] <Rab> Is that your gateway?
[10:44:12] <archivist> my public fixed ip is
[10:44:28] <Rab> Could it be that they're intentionally blocking port 80? Copyright claim by envious fellow archivists?
[10:44:41] <archivist> a plain ping should work to that ip
[10:44:56] <Rab> I can ping that.
[10:45:25] <archivist> I have rattled a support person but got nowhere
[10:45:44] <archivist> "it must be a firewall"
[10:45:48] <_methods> if they're hitting you with DMCA you should have gotta a notice
[10:46:20] <archivist> and the support monkey would know
[10:46:24] <archivist> or should
[10:46:29] <_methods> yeah
[10:52:21] <miss0r|shop> swapper; yes, in my basement. I have a dedicated man-cave. I even placed network and power plugs in the sealing, so that when friends come over for some computer playing, I just set up a couple of tables, and connect them above ;)
[10:52:42] <Swapper> Total geekout :)
[10:52:46] <Swapper> wish i had a basment
[10:53:05] <archivist> loft?
[10:53:20] <Swapper> ?
[10:53:41] <archivist> in the apex of the roof
[10:53:53] <miss0r|shop> Swapper; yeah. it is very nice. but now that I have the right equipment for the nice computer party and cinema ect. I don't have the time to use it ;)
[10:54:19] <Swapper> yea isnt that allways the case
[10:54:23] <Rab> archivist, you could contact accounts and politely ask if they will credit you for the present service outage...might see more action.
[10:54:39] <miss0r|shop> archivist: no, in the basement
[10:55:00] <archivist> rab except they charge the earth to phone them
[10:55:20] <miss0r|shop> Swapper: I'll snap a photo at some point to show you ;)
[10:55:25] <Swapper> do that
[10:55:37] <Swapper> man i have surfed on the home cinema sites
[10:55:37] <cpresser> what would be the easiest way to have a hal-pin with a constant bit-value?
[10:55:38] <archivist> miss0r|shop, I was prompting Swapper with other usable space :)
[10:55:51] <cpresser> the "constant" component only ouputs a float
[10:55:58] <Swapper> ah, my loftspace is bearely so i can crawl there
[10:56:21] <Swapper> like 80cm free at apiex
[10:56:23] <Swapper> apex
[10:56:41] <Swapper> miss0r|shop: what projectors are hot right now?
[10:57:02] <archivist> those with incandescents
[10:57:09] * archivist ducks
[10:57:15] <miss0r|shop> Swapper: I have no idea... I bought this one: http://www.cinema-shop.dk/crea-x2000px-projektor-p-1953.html?osCsid=682eiqggiheifnk4i2hrde88h6
[10:57:41] <miss0r|shop> I like the idea of a good LED projector; if you can make the room completely dark
[10:57:51] <Swapper> i have 1 space for a projector but it would be best if i could back project on a scrren
[10:58:02] <miss0r|shop> This one can do that
[10:58:18] <miss0r|shop> But I think they all can
[10:58:32] <Swapper> yea, its more of the distance to screen
[10:58:37] <Swapper> the throw distance
[10:58:38] <jdh> do you use a screen?
[10:59:09] <miss0r|shop> jdh: yes, a nice 109" with automatic retraction
[10:59:14] <miss0r|shop> Swapper: http://www.cinema-shop.dk/proxima-us1275-projektor-p-1914.html
[10:59:42] <miss0r|shop> Swapper: 0.7m for 60-100"
[10:59:51] <Swapper> bummer is we got loads of windows so light might be a problem
[11:00:02] <Swapper> you have all dark ?
[11:00:24] <miss0r|shop> Swapper: I have a few windows in there, but when I draw the blinds, it is all good
[11:00:29] <Swapper> kk
[11:00:46] <furrywolf> Rab: it was hop 30 here, at which point traceroute gave up without trying any further.
[11:02:15] <tjtr33> try blackout curtains (spcl matl) and ultra short throw projectors ( search term )
[11:02:23] <furrywolf> bbl, time for work
[11:05:12] <Swapper> looks doable with a real short throw proj
[11:05:31] <Swapper> then a nice backprojection automatic rollup screen
[11:59:22] <dirty_d> is this a good brand? http://www.ebay.com/itm/SCIENTIFIC-CUTTING-TOOLS-SPTM240L-Thd-Mill-Single-Int-Ext-5-16-16-48-TPI-/331346716033?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4d25cda581
[12:03:44] <Rab> Never heard of them, but they seem legit: http://www.sct-usa.com/main.asp
[12:06:41] <dirty_d> no reason i cant use it to thread larger diamters right?
[12:06:43] <dirty_d> like even 1"
[12:07:16] <dirty_d> as long as the threads dont need to be deeper than it can cut
[12:07:25] <SpeedEvil> sure
[12:07:35] <SpeedEvil> And you can keep speeds/feeds sane
[12:07:38] <dirty_d> yea
[12:10:14] <dirty_d> id just go real slow and take light cuts i guess
[12:10:27] <dirty_d> id be afraid to break it
[12:15:38] <SpeedEvil> I was considering earlier really stupid ways to thread.
[12:15:52] <SpeedEvil> Involving sinker EDM with allthread
[12:18:22] <dirty_d> sounds complicated
[12:31:02] <SpeedEvil> yeah - the right way would be a nice big tap.
[12:31:12] <SpeedEvil> Or, indeed, a lathe
[12:31:39] <archivist> or use a thread mill on a milling machine
[12:31:46] <SpeedEvil> Quite
[12:32:10] <SpeedEvil> But 30mm taps are getting kinda spendy
[12:32:54] <archivist> or in stock upstairs :)
[12:33:33] <SpeedEvil> I am 99.4% sure I don't have a 30mm tap upstairs
[12:34:26] <archivist> I have used an insert for a lathe mounted on a rotary tool on the mill to make large diameter threads
[12:34:35] <SpeedEvil> And yes.
[12:34:42] <CaptHindsight> miss0r|shop: that Cre projector is a variation of the Epson LCD projectors. The LED life is 10-100x the life of lamps. It depends on how well they cool them.
[12:34:51] <archivist> cant show picture right now!
[12:34:52] <SpeedEvil> Both a lathe and a mill are something I am also almost certain I don't have upstairs.
[12:35:39] <jdh> yet?
[12:35:56] <SpeedEvil> hopefully.
[12:36:04] <SpeedEvil> I sort-of-have bits of a decent lathe
[12:36:20] <archivist> I admit my 5 axis mill made it upstairs
[12:36:35] <SpeedEvil> But - it has no toolholder, and the chuck has a runout of about 2 degrees.
[12:36:49] <SpeedEvil> s/chuck/spindle/
[12:37:06] <archivist> regrind the jaws, toolpost grinder
[12:38:12] * SpeedEvil tries to work out if that would work for spindle.
[12:38:55] <archivist> depends what the damage is
[12:39:07] <SpeedEvil> (I think some woodturning was being attempted with a large object, and it went very wrong
[12:39:27] <archivist> maybe just best to make a new one between centres
[12:39:45] <SpeedEvil> No toolpost.
[12:39:59] <SpeedEvil> Just a very crudely made wood-turning rest
[12:40:31] <archivist> just use some packers under a bit on the topslide
[12:41:17] <SpeedEvil> There is no topslide either.
[12:41:55] <SpeedEvil> It's got the bed, tailstock, spindle, and a crudely-made toolrest for woodturning
[12:42:04] <SpeedEvil> And the aforementioned wonky spindle
[12:42:31] <archivist> some restoration required
[12:42:34] <SpeedEvil> Quite.
[12:42:46] <SpeedEvil> On the other hand - the paint is in quite good condition.
[13:43:41] <andypugh> miss0r|shop: I didn’t realise I was still logged in here. Anyway, for very hard stuff I have had good results with CBN tips and very high spindle speeds. The process is called “hard turning” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VzyESxaHwY If the swarf isn’t red-hot then you aren’t spinning fast enough.
[13:46:00] <andypugh> Actually this video from Hoss shows that you don’t need super-special machinery: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BU14tfjUfQU
[13:56:41] <LeelooMinai> "bugger the coolling and heat expansion" method - nice:p
[13:58:58] <SpeedEvil> If you do it right, you can both turn, and case-harden the object to be turned at the same time.
[14:00:09] <LeelooMinai> And if you do it wrong, you can put the place on fire:)
[14:00:36] <SpeedEvil> Also - sheet.
[14:00:38] <SpeedEvil> HRC64
[14:00:45] <_methods> you mean if you do it right
[14:00:47] <SpeedEvil> I've got files softer than that.
[14:00:52] <_methods> if you do it wrong there won't be sparks
[14:01:09] <SpeedEvil> Blood is a good coolant
[14:02:06] <_methods> anyone tried out brl-cad?
[14:04:17] <_methods> http://brlcad.org/d/
[14:04:19] <_methods> lol
[14:04:25] <_methods> the support button
[14:04:35] <_methods> goes to 404 hehe
[14:05:25] <LeelooMinai> open-source ftw
[14:18:02] <_Sync_> andypugh: usually on smaller machines the problem is getting the feedpressure up without chatter
[14:18:11] <_Sync_> and in the long run, you have to worry about the bed cracking
[14:18:27] <_Sync_> which apparently happened in the early days of hard turning pretty often
[14:19:03] <Rab> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LVODJm05plw
[14:19:59] <dirty_d> are tehre things like e-clips, but made to go around something rectangular?
[14:21:01] <Rab> Anything I've seen like that, the rectangular part had a circular groove turned in it to use a standard clip.
[14:21:03] <dirty_d> trying to figure out how to attach a fuel line directly to this http://data.prestoliteperformance.com/documents/instructions/ACCEL/pdf/ACCEL_Injector_Specifications_151148.pdf
[14:21:18] <_methods> ugh brl-cad is as bad as openscad
[14:21:36] <dirty_d> i was thinking machine a short 3/4" brass cylinder to fit over the o-ring
[14:22:05] <dirty_d> and cut two slots on each side of the bottom of it, slide it on, then slide soem type of clip through that would engage those slots you can see in the picture
[14:23:55] <tjtr33> Is it ok to use a higher than rated voltage on a dc brushed motor?
[14:23:56] <tjtr33> I have a 30V dc brushed motor, and want to use it with a 60V supply and PWM driver.
[14:24:11] <_methods> you could cross drill and slide pins through those grooves
[14:24:22] <_methods> to lock it in
[14:25:22] <tjtr33> c clip beck arnley http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/171662522964?lpid=82&chn=ps
[14:27:06] <Rab> dirty_d, is this for production or fun? I'd just find a salvaged fuel rail for those injectors and braze a fitting or whatever onto that.
[14:27:54] <dirty_d> fun
[14:28:37] <dirty_d> tjtr33, yea tahts fine, as long as you limit the duty cycle to limit the current
[14:28:49] <dirty_d> and dont exceed the maximum rpm
[14:29:21] <dirty_d> heat and rpms are the only thing that will ruin a motor
[14:35:15] <tjtr33> dirty thx yeah, seems we just choked the current setting to keep the same watts
[14:42:28] <miss0r|shop> yay! all three axis moving on the arboga! Greata success (borat voice)
[14:50:00] <tjtr33> congratulations! like this? http://www.lathes.co.uk/arboga/
[14:51:40] <jack16> Any recommendations on Chinese endmills supplier (preferably aliexpress)? Uncoated carbide for wood, plastics and al.
[14:55:25] <miss0r|shop> yes, a u2508 exactly
[15:00:04] <_methods> jack16: probably any of them will work
[15:06:39] <PetefromTn_> any of you guys use DNLA servers on your TV?
[15:07:41] <_methods> yeah i do
[15:07:55] <_methods> i don't really like it too much cause it's hard to navigate
[15:08:00] <_methods> it's all folder based
[15:08:09] <_methods> so it can be a bit tedious
[15:08:09] <PetefromTn_> my Flatscreen has it and I am not sure how it works..
[15:08:16] <PetefromTn_> can you stream TV on it?
[15:08:18] <_methods> you need a dlna server
[15:08:32] <_methods> you can but that's a bit complicated
[15:09:15] <PetefromTn_> there is actually a lot of free online TV live streams you can watch and I was hoping to get them on the big screen LOL
[15:09:40] <_methods> best way is to use chromecast i would think
[15:09:48] <_methods> but you can stream but it's quite a pain
[15:09:58] <_methods> i got it to work kinda with my hdhomerun prime
[15:10:58] <_methods> i used this thing called wallop i think
[15:11:09] <PetefromTn_> http://livetvcafe.net/videos/all/All/most_recent/all_time/ Lots of good channels actually just need to get em on the big screen heh I guess I can just stream em on the laptop and then do HDMI
[15:11:26] <_methods> yeah that or cast it
[15:11:35] <_methods> hard to beat chromecast
[15:11:39] <_methods> $35 and done
[15:11:44] <PetefromTn_> not familiar with Chromecast
[15:12:34] <_methods> well it's basically a hdmi dongle that you can cast from android to on your tv
[15:12:57] <_methods> or from yourlaptop
[15:13:35] <PetefromTn_> Ok so its hardware then... gotta check it out.
[15:13:42] <_methods> yeah cheap hardware
[15:13:52] <_methods> i made a portable monitor with one
[15:14:00] <_methods> with an old laptop monitor lol
[15:14:17] <malcom2073> I've been meaning to get one ,see how it was vs my roku which was the same price
[15:14:19] <_methods> that way if i'm workin on my car or whatever i just chromecast to my monitor
[15:14:23] <_methods> sitting on my truck lol
[15:14:32] <_methods> i have roku3 and chromecast
[15:14:36] <PetefromTn_> hey thats a good idea!
[15:14:39] <_methods> i prefer my chromecast
[15:14:46] <PetefromTn_> I have a couple big monitors around here that I am not using.
[15:15:32] <PetefromTn_> and I STILL have a big tube tv up in the bedroom I need to get gone so this might be a way to do it without having to buy another flatscreen for awhile...
[15:15:45] <PetefromTn_> I'm a freakin' caveman..
[15:16:01] <_methods> yeah i got a cordless drill battery that i hook up to the old laptop monitor and a chromecast
[15:16:12] <_methods> carry it around wherever i need it lol
[15:16:19] <_methods> it's GHETTO
[15:16:22] <_methods> but it works
[15:16:30] <PetefromTn_> hey I like Ghetto sometimes ;)
[15:16:58] <PetefromTn_> I'd love to be able to watch BBC1 and get Top Gear live etc..

[15:21:43] <_methods> i need to 3d print a cover where it goes into the back and make a carrying tray for the whole assy
[15:21:51] <_methods> right now it's screwed to chunks of 2x4 lol
[15:22:37] * Loetmichel just used his "new" used notebook this way: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=15690&g2_imageViewsIndex=1
[15:22:57] <Loetmichel> ... because the replacement keyboard took a few days to arrive (today)
[15:23:14] <Loetmichel> now it looks less "ghetto": http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=15693&g2_imageViewsIndex=1
[15:23:46] <_methods> heheh
[15:24:00] <_methods> i do love some of my ghetto projects
[15:24:01] <PetefromTn_> nice
[15:24:30] <PetefromTn_> so that chromecast thing just goes into the hdmi and you plug in your laptop or phone and stream that way?
[15:24:35] <_methods> yeah
[15:24:44] <_methods> you don't have to plug your laptop in
[15:24:46] <_methods> it's wifi
[15:24:58] <_methods> you just plug in the chromecast
[15:25:04] <_methods> and it will run off usb power
[15:25:25] <Loetmichel> _methods: looks like my new CNC mill display...
[15:25:27] <PetefromTn_> sweet
[15:25:40] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=14313
[15:25:40] <_methods> a lot of these new tv's have usb on them
[15:25:46] <PetefromTn_> do they sell those like at wally world or you get em online?
[15:25:48] <_methods> so you can feed it right from the tv
[15:25:53] <Loetmichel> http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=14316 <- even made a brass frame for it
[15:25:55] <_methods> yeah they sell them all over now
[15:26:13] <_methods> Loetmichel: nice
[15:26:31] <_methods> man i gotta get one of those 6040's so i can start making boxes like that
[15:26:37] <Loetmichel> 12" 1024*768 display from an old IBM x21
[15:26:48] <_methods> yeah it's nice being able to use old displays
[15:26:53] <Loetmichel> and a 10 eur converter board from a german surplus dealer
[15:26:54] <_methods> i hate seeing old laptops go to waste
[15:27:07] <Loetmichel> and an inverter from a casemodding CCFL
[15:27:31] <_methods> i used teh old laptop power supply for mine initially
[15:28:10] <Loetmichel> i bought just the display from Ebay
[15:28:16] <Loetmichel> not the whole notebook
[15:28:43] <Loetmichel> because the 15" i had there before is a BIT to big to fit the rack: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=12569
[15:28:55] <_methods> i need to build a battery charging circuit for it still so i can charge it while on power then go to battery when i pull it off mains
[15:29:03] <Loetmichel> the 12" fits on the (brown) back wall beside the mill
[15:29:42] <_methods> i like that keyboard
[15:30:15] <miss0r|shop> yay! It just completed the "tux" milling test without breaking anything
[15:30:25] <_methods> nice
[15:31:32] <miss0r|shop> I love that keyboard. I tried to get a regular keyboard with that cover you could get in the 'old days' but that seems impossible to find
[15:34:01] <Loetmichel> _methods: that keyboard is fine for CNC: silicone, so heat resistand AND watertight
[15:34:14] <_methods> yeah
[15:34:16] <Loetmichel> -> no coolant or red hot chip problems
[15:34:24] <_methods> i need to pick up one of those
[15:34:34] <Loetmichel> it is really not meant to type long essays tho ;-)
[15:34:52] <_methods> i just wnat it for my cnc
[15:34:58] <_methods> so it's coolant and chip resistant
[15:36:06] <Loetmichel> i just meant: you will NOT like it if you chat a lot on the CNC cpu ;-)
[15:36:22] <_methods> yeah
[15:40:32] <PetefromTn_> Hey I can even watch the Formula 1 races COOOL!!
[15:56:20] * LeelooMinai ponders if Formula 1 races have still humans inside or the cars just drive themselves
[16:35:24] <XXCoder> http://picpaste.com/deafnews.jpg heh
[16:42:51] <Swapper> anyone here running a altivar vfd with linuxcnc over modbus?
[16:43:11] <Swapper> Cant seem to get that darn comp working..
[16:54:23] <robinsz> modbus?
[16:54:57] <Swapper> yea modbus http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?VFD_Modbus
[16:55:23] <Swapper> Industrial serial protocol to tell stuff to the the tings you whant it to do
[16:55:42] <robinsz> I am aware what modbus is, just not seen anyone hook it up to emc before
[16:55:43] <Swapper> but my linuxcnc doest not do what i tell it to :)
[16:55:49] <robinsz> it might well be doable under HAL
[16:56:17] <Swapper> theres a complete comp for the VFD with feedback and all, if i could compile it!
[16:56:19] <Swapper> and run it
[16:56:33] <Swapper> but i have tried for 2 days now
[16:57:05] <Swapper> This is the component (userspace) http://git.mah.priv.at/gitweb?p=emc2-dev.git;a=commit;h=04e08b52b28732b4bf2fb0dd7283fe7496741167
[16:57:24] <Swapper> cant compile it with halcompile ither (does not support .c files in userspace)
[16:57:37] <Swapper> i cant compile it with "make" it throws an error
[16:57:56] <Swapper> atv# make
[16:57:56] <Swapper> The required program "comp" could not be found
[16:57:56] <Swapper> The required program "comp" could not be found
[16:57:56] <Swapper> Makefile:7: *** Required files for building components not present. Install emc2-dev. Stop.
[16:58:24] <robinsz> beyond me ...
[16:58:43] <robinsz> you need alexjoni or someone who actually knows that they are doing
[16:58:51] <robinsz> tried on emcdev?
[16:59:02] <robinsz> sorry, linuxcnc-dev?
[16:59:04] <Swapper> emcdev == linuxcnc-dev and i have that
[16:59:06] <Swapper> installed
[16:59:17] <robinsz> no, the IRC channel
[16:59:23] <robinsz> #linuxcnc-dev
[16:59:25] <Swapper> oh
[16:59:28] <robinsz> ask on there
[16:59:32] <Swapper> ill do that !
[16:59:38] <robinsz> thats where clever people live!
[17:00:25] <tjtr33> if its a RIP, and you've spent 2 days already, maybe try make on the whole system? ( maybe 'touch' the src file so it looks new to make )
[17:01:10] <Swapper> i have only downloaded the altivar parts
[17:01:32] <Swapper> running from buildbot 2.8
[17:02:00] <Swapper> what i can see the altivar comp is old and probably not updated
[17:02:07] <Swapper> for newer linuxcnc installs
[17:02:22] <Swapper> but thats weerd since someone has to use the comp ?
[17:02:42] <Swapper> loads of people use modbus to control there chines VFDs atleast
[17:03:33] <Swapper> probably easier to hook it up to +-10v...
[17:03:36] <Swapper> but thats cheating
[17:03:55] <Swapper> and all this for controling a coolant pump: )
[17:04:40] <tjtr33> you're adding a piece to a system, the system you have doesnt know about the piece. you may need to build the entire system. plz ask on mail list or on linuxcnc-dev
[17:08:05] <tjtr33> maybe a quick email to author martin dot kaplan at vlg dot cz
[17:08:54] <Swapper> yea ill do that
[17:09:00] <Swapper> cant seem to find any ppl in linuxcnc-dev
[17:09:09] <Swapper> im prob to tired to think
[17:09:31] <tjtr33> recently i found that Prague CZ was really Praha CZ another westernization wihout local permission
[17:10:01] <tjtr33> the guys in -dev are often busy, but the do respond better to the mail lists and on the forum
[17:11:55] <tjtr33> http://www.penta-edm.cz/ damn and they were at TimTos, missed it
[17:19:58] <Deejay> gn8
[18:08:30] <CaptHindsight> tjtr33: which GUI do you use for making lots of mods for unique machines?
[18:15:43] <dirty_d> fusion 360's sketching is just terrible
[18:16:09] <dirty_d> cant een make a cross section of a damn tool, lol
[18:17:36] <CaptHindsight> what is Fusion 360?
[18:19:06] <CaptHindsight> Autodesk has so many levels of CAD software. I wonder how many are the same app with different features removed and a lower price tag.
[18:25:52] <dirty_d> the free one
[18:26:07] <dirty_d> the cam is pretty good though
[18:36:47] <tjtr33> CaptHindsight, pyvcp panels
[18:41:30] <CaptHindsight> http://www.autodesk.com/products/fusion-360/overview as low as $25 per month
[18:41:45] <CaptHindsight> do you have to be online for it to work?
[18:43:28] <tjtr33> CaptHindsight, i see i did use glade & gtk too
[18:43:29] <dirty_d> probably
[18:47:45] <CaptHindsight> http://www.3ders.org/articles/20150310-supercharge-your-3d-printer-with-the-fastbot-bbp-controller-board.html
[18:48:05] <CaptHindsight> powered by an AM335x, 1GHZ Cortex-A8 processor
[18:48:07] <tjtr33> at one time i had a velocity override that was a bezier curve, you could bend the velocity response to a process.
[18:49:14] <_methods> no you can use fusion360 in offline mode
[18:49:33] <_methods> the cam package is fairly impressive
[18:49:45] <CaptHindsight> looks like BBB with drivers onboard for an all in one
[18:49:47] <_methods> the assembly and drawing portions are a bit disappointing
[18:53:18] <tjtr33> Drew Fustini of Pumping Station One is in the BBP credits !?
[19:02:06] <dirty_d> ahhhh! cant figure out how the hell to import a form tool into fusion360
[19:02:14] <dirty_d> http://knowledge.autodesk.com/support/cam-360/learn-explore/caas/CloudHelp/cloudhelp/ENU/CAM360/files/GUIDC3DDEDCA-0827-4F0F-A266-9A0404F7D9BE-htm.html
[19:02:21] <dirty_d> you would think just doing what they say would work...
[19:02:41] <_methods> you mean like a sheet metal form tool?
[19:02:43] <moorbo> from autodesk forums?
[19:02:47] <moorbo> ha!
[19:04:34] <dirty_d> _methods, no an end mill that you specify the geometry of
[19:05:41] <dirty_d> i suppose i can just pretend its an end mill
[19:05:49] <_methods> oh you want to import a custom tool shape
[19:06:18] <tjtr33> linke a step drill or radius cutter or something you whip up on a cutter grinder?
[19:06:40] <dirty_d> well this is a single profile thread mill
[19:07:15] <_methods> yeah i never tried to make any custom tool geometry
[19:07:52] <_methods> if you want to do complicated stuff you're going to need to use real software like mastercam or something
[19:08:09] <andypugh> CaptHindsight: That Kickstarter “$80,000 will support the MachineKit software”. Why would that cost _more_ than their custom software?
[19:14:04] <andypugh> Anyway, sleep time.
[19:14:38] <dirty_d> im somewhat confused about thread milling
[19:14:59] <dirty_d> i have my models dimension to the OD major diameter
[19:15:32] <dirty_d> id imagine i want the cutting edge to cut as deep as the OD minor diameter right?
[19:15:42] <dirty_d> but fusion36 asks for pitch diameter offset
[19:16:38] <_methods> no you'd want to go to the minor
[19:17:05] <dirty_d> yea
[19:17:08] <dirty_d> but...
[19:17:27] <dirty_d> i doubt the tool edge is a perfect triangle point
[19:17:33] <dirty_d> it probably has a small radius to it
[19:17:41] <_methods> sure most threading tools do
[19:17:54] <_methods> go to the virtual sharp
[19:17:55] <dirty_d> so is the 0.240" cutting diameter the actual diameter, or the diameter a perfect 60deg triangle form would make?
[19:18:13] <_methods> is .240" your minor diameter?
[19:18:16] <Roguish> PCW: I have responded and added info to the forum post.
[19:18:20] <_methods> oh that is your tool form
[19:18:24] <dirty_d> no, the thread mill says 0.240" cutting diameter
[19:18:40] <_methods> i'd measure from centerline to check
[19:18:54] <_methods> but yes it should be .240" if that's what the datasheet says
[19:19:10] <dirty_d> 0.240" to the radius, if there is one?
[19:19:21] <dirty_d> because then you dont know what the pitch diamter of the cutter is
[19:19:23] <dirty_d> which is more important
[19:19:38] <_methods> yes pitch diameter is what matters
[19:19:56] <dirty_d> i dont know what it is though unless the tool really is a perfect triangle shape
[19:20:39] <_methods> that's what thread guages are for
[19:20:40] <dirty_d> it hasnt been delivered yet, so i cant really see
[19:20:43] <_methods> cut your threads then measure
[19:20:52] <_methods> if it's too tight offset and cut again
[19:21:01] <_methods> or hit with thread file
[19:24:51] <dirty_d> trial and error
[19:24:57] <dirty_d> im just gonna do that
[19:25:17] <dirty_d> cut it too tight and just recut until it fits
[19:25:32] <_methods> yeah well normally you measure then make an offset lol
[19:25:59] <dirty_d> looks pretty pointy http://cdn.mscdirect.com/global/images/ProductImages/4023292-23.jpg
[19:26:11] <dirty_d> why wouldnt the manufactureer just do that?
[19:26:25] <_methods> do what?
[19:27:06] <dirty_d> specify the diameter as it would be if the points were infinitely sharp
[19:27:21] <dirty_d> they designed it, so they do know that dimension
[19:28:25] <_methods> well personally i'll look at the manufacturers sheets but in the end i'm making the part so i measure the tools i'm working with
[19:28:30] <_methods> i trust nothing
[19:28:43] <_methods> great way to scrap parts just going by a piece of paper
[19:28:50] <tjtr33> re threadmilling: any use? http://www.guhring.com/Tech/ThreadMillCNC/CNCGenerator/
[19:30:05] <_methods> code looks good
[19:32:01] <dirty_d> _methods, how do you measure it? micrometer and some kinda 60deg thing that mates against the cutters?
[19:32:16] <Tom_itx> no, round bars
[19:32:24] <_methods> the threads?
[19:32:29] <Tom_itx> yes
[19:32:36] <dirty_d> i mean on the thread mill
[19:32:37] <Tom_itx> there should be data for that
[19:32:38] <_methods> yeah either thread mic or 3 wire
[19:32:39] <dirty_d> single profile type
[19:32:52] <_methods> well for that cutter i'd put it in a vblock
[19:33:21] <dirty_d> thats 90 deg though
[19:33:28] <_methods> measure cutter round diameter then drop down to centeline
[19:33:44] <_methods> then rotate the cutter to hit the high
[19:33:51] <_methods> to measure it's dist from centerline
[19:34:48] <dirty_d> hmm
[19:35:31] <dirty_d> that looks pretty damn pointy http://www.model-engineer.co.uk/sites/7/images/member_albums/70420/439869.jpg
[19:35:34] <Tom_itx> get the profile data on the cutter for the tip radius then calculate the difference
[19:35:58] <dirty_d> i think i could just get away with pretending it is infinitely sharp
[19:36:12] <_methods> yeah
[19:36:12] <dirty_d> cut the OD, then cut the ID a little small then finish to fit
[19:36:18] <dirty_d> and record what offsets i needed
[19:36:46] <dirty_d> Tom_itx, i dont think there is any data
[19:36:48] <_methods> you're single point thread milling an external thread?
[19:36:55] <dirty_d> internal and external
[19:37:05] <_methods> weird thread or something?
[19:37:09] <dirty_d> yea
[19:37:32] <dirty_d> plus i figured i can do any kinda thread within a pretty braod range with just a few of these
[19:37:37] <dirty_d> sure its slower, but i dont care
[19:37:38] <_methods> yeah
[19:37:52] <_methods> its' handy for small runs
[19:37:57] <dirty_d> not building a factory or anything
[19:37:59] <_methods> and odd threads
[19:38:01] <dirty_d> just hobby stuff
[19:38:03] <_methods> yeah
[19:38:09] <_methods> it works just sneak up on it
[19:38:23] <_methods> and you'll be good to go
[19:38:32] <dirty_d> im learning theres a lot of that in this
[19:38:41] <dirty_d> a lot more manual that i thought
[19:38:45] <_methods> yeah there are a lot of variables
[19:38:56] <_methods> best to be patient
[19:39:07] <_methods> it's either that or you get to make the part again lol
[19:39:16] <dirty_d> like for holes and ODs ill just using a boring bar and creep up to what i need
[19:39:23] <_methods> yeah
[19:39:35] <dirty_d> im kinda worried about the boring head screwing off coing CCW though
[19:39:39] <dirty_d> i think it just screws on
[19:39:51] <dirty_d> boring head i mean
[19:39:53] <dirty_d> no lathe
[19:39:55] <_methods> you're using a boring head on a cnc?
[19:40:00] <dirty_d> yea
[19:40:07] <_methods> why not just interpolate?
[19:40:22] <dirty_d> oh i do, i only use that if the diameter is important
[19:40:27] <_methods> ahhh
[19:40:28] <dirty_d> like for a bearing to fit
[19:40:32] <_methods> k
[19:40:52] <dirty_d> and probably the ID and OD that need to be thread milled
[19:40:53] <_methods> yeah i only use boring head in cnc for super tight stuff
[19:41:08] <dirty_d> but im not sure if even that is neccessary
[19:41:17] <dirty_d> the tolerances on threads looks pretty loose
[19:41:25] <_methods> yeah
[19:41:35] <_methods> well it depends on the thread call out
[19:41:39] <_methods> some can be very tight
[19:41:50] <_methods> but for the most part threads aren't too bad
[19:42:10] <dirty_d> i was looking at this for 3A and 3B http://theoreticalmachinist.com/Threads_UnifiedImperial.aspx
[19:42:35] <dirty_d> looks like +/-0.003" for pitch diameter
[19:42:42] <_methods> yeah that shows you how to measure using 3 wire technique
[19:44:08] <_methods> do you have a machinists handbook?
[19:44:12] <dirty_d> nope
[19:44:19] <dirty_d> im not sure which of those numbers is ideal either
[19:44:30] <dirty_d> like for major diameter 0.7500 / 0.7428
[19:44:45] <_methods> well it's pretty handy for that stuff
[19:44:49] <dirty_d> 0.75 would seem to be idea for a 3/4" thread
[19:44:52] <_methods> and explains a lot of things in more depth
[19:45:06] <roycroft> dirty_d: you really should get a copy of machinist's handbook
[19:45:12] <roycroft> and the book does not increase in size
[19:45:23] <_methods> your brain might though lol
[19:45:28] <roycroft> because it needs to fit in the drawer of a kennedy machinist's tool chest
[19:45:40] <dirty_d> lol
[19:45:42] <roycroft> so modern versions which have a lot of cnc info dropped some of the old-timey stuff
[19:45:59] <dirty_d> is that the name of an actual book?
[19:46:04] <roycroft> i say this because i'm going to recommend you go on ebay or amazon and get an old copy, from the '40s or the '50s
[19:46:05] <dirty_d> or a variety
[19:46:09] <roycroft> you can get it really cheap
[19:46:11] <_methods> machinery's handbook
[19:46:17] <roycroft> and yes, machinery's handbook
[19:46:17] <dirty_d> ahh, i see that
[19:46:27] <roycroft> and you can get a current copy later on
[19:46:29] <roycroft> if you want
[19:46:32] <roycroft> it's about $80
[19:46:45] <tjtr33> actual book, and machinists toolcases had a special drawer for it, true, and it was that basic a tool, that you really needed
[19:46:45] <roycroft> but you can an old copy for a fraction of that amount
[19:46:57] <_methods> i'm sure you can find a digital one for nothing
[19:46:59] <roycroft> yes, and they really did design a special drawer for it
[19:47:02] <tjtr33> cd available
[19:47:04] <dirty_d> yea id imagine
[19:47:07] <roycroft> and it really doesn't get bigger because of that
[19:47:18] <dirty_d> hah
[19:47:22] <_methods> but it's nice having it there physically
[19:47:29] <roycroft> the wooden gerstner machinist's chests have the drawer too
[19:47:44] <roycroft> it's good having a physical copy when you're working in the shop and need to look something up
[19:47:45] <tjtr33> thin bible paper, tiny fonts, a zillion pages
[19:48:19] <dirty_d> but for all intents and purposes, the pitch diameter is whats really important, because of varying radiuses?
[19:48:35] <_methods> the pitch diameter is what matters
[19:49:00] <dirty_d> but then how do they specify the pitch diameter for say a 3/4" UNF thread?
[19:49:24] <dirty_d> is it the centerline between an imaginary perfectly sharp thread with a 3/4" major diameter?
[19:49:32] <dirty_d> or 3/4" to the rounded edge?
[19:50:26] <_methods> http://www.efunda.com/designstandards/screws/unified.cfm?start=148&finish=227
[19:50:48] <_methods> pitch diameter is the diameter between min and max
[19:52:12] <_methods> 0.7094 0.7056 for 3/4-16 3A
[19:52:21] <_methods> that's max and min pitch
[19:52:27] <dirty_d> oh, so its not like geometrically perfect
[19:52:52] <dirty_d> i was visualizing the centerline of a triangle wave
[19:52:59] <_methods> it's a theroetical
[19:53:00] <dirty_d> as the pitch diameter
[19:53:02] <_methods> nominal
[19:53:27] <_methods> and you need to use 3wire or thread mic to read it
[19:53:47] <_methods> that's why they make thread go/nogo gages
[19:54:02] <_methods> so people don't have to use 3wire or thread mic's all day
[19:54:10] <dirty_d> ok
[19:54:21] <Tom_itx> for production yes
[19:54:30] <Tom_itx> hardly worth it for one off etc
[19:54:34] <_methods> yes
[19:54:45] <_methods> for your case you need to learn to read 3 wire
[19:54:58] <_methods> or just put the nut or screw on and see if you're happy
[19:55:57] <dirty_d> hmm
[20:11:02] <zeeshan-laptop> ZZZZ
[20:38:58] <zeeshan-laptop> cant wait to get out of the lab
[20:39:00] <zeeshan-laptop> so tired
[20:39:04] <zeeshan-laptop> damn experiment running
[20:39:35] <zeeshan-laptop> its quiet in the channel
[20:40:28] <Tom_itx> make some noise
[20:40:53] <zeeshan-laptop> ive music blasting
[20:41:10] <zeeshan-laptop> nice thing about being by myself
[20:42:32] <Tom_itx> i'm copying drives. rather boreing
[20:42:46] <Tom_itx> trying to free up some drives to use
[20:42:53] <zeeshan-laptop> i formatted the other day
[20:43:00] <zeeshan-laptop> desktop feels brand new
[20:43:01] <zeeshan-laptop> :D
[20:43:09] <zeeshan-laptop> windows is such a hog after years of not formatting it
[20:43:14] <zeeshan-laptop> itll dump useless shit files everywhere
[20:43:23] <zeeshan-laptop> and the nonsense keeps growing
[20:44:18] <Tom_itx> no kidding
[20:44:33] <Tom_itx> one i did the other day is running alot better
[20:56:48] <dirty_d> hrmm, cant figure out of im wrong or this online calculator is wrong
[20:58:40] <dirty_d> it says the basic pitch diameter for a 3/4-20 thread is 0.7175"
[20:58:49] <dirty_d> my sketch shows 0.7161"
[20:59:05] <dirty_d> im using the mathematical model
[20:59:35] <dirty_d> where Dmaj is set using P/8
[21:08:01] <dirty_d> this also gives their answer http://www.engineersedge.com/thread_strength/thread_bolt_pitch_circle_diameter.htm
[21:10:37] <zeeshan-laptop> home time!
[21:12:52] <jdh> http://raleigh.craigslist.org/for/4923104545.html
[21:18:57] <tjtr33> nice
[21:20:52] <tjtr33> nice set of views https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=4456&acctid=127
[21:21:27] <dirty_d> hmm, now its right, im losing my mind
[21:23:13] <Roguish> dirty_d: per Mark's Mechanical Handbook (the bible) 0.7175 is the basic pitch diameter of the 3/4-20 UNEF thread.
[21:23:50] <dirty_d> thats what my sketch shows, maybe i was just seeing things before
[21:26:53] <CaptHindsight> http://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=631&acctid=1997 Tree Journeyman 200R

[21:28:19] <CaptHindsight> used by the Postal service?!
[21:34:51] <tjtr33> who wanted a shipping ontainer, they got a few on govdeals
[21:36:13] <postaL> excuse me?
[21:36:30] <jdh> z: https://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=403&acctid=6343
[21:38:44] <CaptHindsight> furry wanted the container
[21:45:56] <tjtr33> furrywolf conatiner for shipping http://www.govdeals.com/index.cfm?fa=Main.Item&itemid=42&acctid=2778
[21:46:42] <furrywolf> I'm sure everyone here will be completely and totally shocked to find out the 50W, 4500lm LED lamp I ordered from china isn't. My killawatt says it draws 32W, not 50W, and a quick visual brightness comparrison shows it to be about the same brightness as the 1600lm lamp I got from Costco for the same price, that only draws 19.5W.
[21:49:22] <CaptHindsight> those are Chinese Watts
[21:49:57] <furrywolf> and chinese lumens too!
[21:50:24] <furrywolf> I'd paste a link, but my internet connections seems to be sucking too badly tonight to do complicated things like browse the web.
[21:50:25] <tjtr33> dang walmart has everything 40' containers http://goo.gl/8ATvmq
[21:51:50] <furrywolf> http://www.ebay.com/itm/261475587095 <== fake. 32W, probably <2000lm.
[21:52:53] <CaptHindsight> tjtr33: Shipping Weight (in pounds): 14.95 ?
[21:53:12] <CaptHindsight> 1/4 scale
[21:53:29] <tjtr33> oh i thought 1/14 scale some expensive rc toy
[21:54:17] <furrywolf> yes, it's an expensive r/c toy.
[21:55:43] <tjtr33> but ebay has real ones for 1-2000 and real full sized. multiple seaport loations, if its of any use to you
[21:56:06] <CaptHindsight> http://www.trueactivist.com/a-shipping-container-costs-about-2000-what-these-15-people-did-with-that-is-beyond-epic/
[21:56:35] * furrywolf takes one look at the idiotic wording of the title and doesn't click
[21:56:45] <tjtr33> south east asian island beach homes?
[21:56:56] <tjtr33> IF you aint 6'4" like me :)
[21:57:54] <furrywolf> should I bother complaining about the fakeness of this bulb?
[21:57:56] <furrywolf> (to the seller)
[21:58:47] <CaptHindsight> ask them to send you the missing 18W
[21:59:45] <tjtr33> ah you're suppose to run it at 156% duty cycle
[22:00:14] <furrywolf> run it off 160V? :P
[22:01:51] <furrywolf> http://www.ebay.com/itm/High-Power-50W-COB-E27-LED-Bulb-Light-Lamp-Spotlight-White-Warm-White-AC85-265V-/261421509474 that looks like the next step upwards, but it's a lot of money
[22:02:09] <CaptHindsight> there needs to be a way to expose these corrupt sellers
[22:02:48] <furrywolf> there is not.
[22:03:26] <CaptHindsight> alibubu
[22:03:44] <furrywolf> fortunately, all these fake listings have an indicator that they're fake.
[22:04:01] <CaptHindsight> maybe mockery and irony
[22:04:22] <furrywolf> every one of them says "Item location: China".
[22:04:53] <furrywolf> the last one I pasted looks much less likely to be fake... but it's also $33.
[22:05:34] <CaptHindsight> what site did you find iton?
[22:05:40] <CaptHindsight> it on
[22:06:06] <furrywolf> ebay
[22:09:06] <Tom_itx> what's the easiest way to copy a drive to another with linux?
[22:09:11] <Tom_itx> bootable
[22:10:12] <furrywolf> are they identical? dd will copy it, but you'll need to manually resize partitions later.
[22:10:26] <Tom_itx> not identical
[22:10:47] <Tom_itx> but not full either
[22:18:35] <tjtr33> readup on dd. its powerful & dangerous, and has no progress info without trickery.
[22:18:37] <tjtr33> i'd think you can size the partitions on the destination drive, then dd each src to dest, then set the bootable flag on dest. i suggest you get a copy of the boot sector 1st and really be sure of each device's name ( /dev/sd? )
[22:19:24] <tjtr33> and for your 1st q, yes its easy. thus the danger
[22:24:33] * ffurrywol curls up and yawns
[22:36:52] <Tom_itx> i'm aware of the pitfalls
[22:37:52] <Tom_itx> i may just use the live cd and copy the rest
[22:38:01] <Tom_itx> probably safer
[22:38:05] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: hang on
[22:38:48] <Tom_itx> it's taken all evening to free up a drive anyway
[22:38:54] <Tom_itx> i'll tackle it tomorrow
[22:39:44] <Jymmm> Tom_itx: partimage
[22:39:52] <Jymmm> or rsync
[22:40:51] <ffurrywol> I need to do some installing, but dicking around with computers has ended up pretty low on my to-do list these days.
[22:40:59] <Jymmm> and sfdisk to back/restore partition table
[22:42:00] <Jymmm> sysresccd.org ftw
[22:49:55] <ffurrywol> http://www.ebay.com/itm/Switch-3-way-LED-2700k-300L-800L-1100L-Warm-White-Dimmable-Lamp-bulb-/121507089674 liquid cooled? lol
[22:54:35] <alex4nder> man, I'd love a VMC
[22:54:45] <alex4nder> I would just hate moving it ever
[22:55:53] * alex4nder looks at a 19,000 lb. matsuura for $9k
[22:57:21] * furrywolf would love a lot of things
[22:57:55] <furrywolf> a vmc, enough money to get tooling for it, a house to put it in, a mature, intelligent, sane, good-with-a-strapon woman who knows cad/cam to use it with,...
[22:58:08] <alex4nder> don't get crazy
[22:59:43] <alex4nder> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Ri5CQ5cIj8 <- that's pretty hilarious
[23:00:01] <zeeshan> what in the
[23:00:02] <zeeshan> f
[23:00:12] <zeeshan> thats a serious lathe
[23:00:26] <alex4nder> frankentaig
[23:02:04] <furrywolf> heh, that's a good idea. I could make my shoptask do that remarkably easily.
[23:02:39] <furrywolf> given as I have a 4" rotary table and an angle plate for it... lol
[23:03:52] <zeeshan> i just want a damn lathe
[23:03:54] <alex4nder> I'm wondering why they didn't use a standard spindle, and mount it back farther..
[23:03:56] <zeeshan> that works !
[23:04:40] <furrywolf> I'd guess the height of the rotary table, with space to clear tools, was higher than centerline...
[23:05:03] <alex4nder> furrywolf: I mean the one with the chuck attached
[23:05:13] <alex4nder> it's not a normal taig spindle...
[23:06:47] * furrywolf has no idea what a taig has
[23:08:18] <alex4nder> furrywolf: http://tinyurl.com/oy67yc3
[23:10:19] <zeeshan> god
[23:10:21] <zeeshan> why cant this be near me
[23:10:22] <zeeshan> http://www.ebay.com/itm/MORI-SEIKI-TL-3-CNC-SLANT-BED-LATHE-TURNING-CENTER-/381182870535?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58c0450407
[23:10:28] <zeeshan> i'd buy that in a fucking heart beat
[23:10:41] <alex4nder> yah jeez
[23:10:46] <alex4nder> that's basically free
[23:11:14] <furrywolf> it's an auction with three days left. the current price is not necessarily the selling price.
[23:11:22] <zeeshan> itll prolly sell for 3k
[23:11:27] <zeeshan> still good for that type of lathe
[23:11:35] <alex4nder> furrywolf: where could it go from there, that isn't 'free'
[23:11:50] <alex4nder> it's like scrap prices
[23:12:11] <furrywolf> it could well be scrap price. scrapyards often bid on equipment to crush...
[23:13:02] <zeeshan> well
[23:13:12] <zeeshan> its getting close to its scrap value
[23:13:15] <zeeshan> of $1475 :P
[23:13:24] <zeeshan> prolly actually past it
[23:13:28] <zeeshan> since someone would have to haul it
[23:14:35] <zeeshan> im hoping to work somewhere
[23:14:43] <zeeshan> one day they'll want to scrap a cnc lathe
[23:14:45] <zeeshan> and ill be like FU
[23:14:46] <zeeshan> its mine!
[23:17:41] <furrywolf> I don't know if there's a single business with a cnc lathe in the county I'm in. heh.
[23:18:08] <alex4nder> wut
[23:18:26] <furrywolf> all the local machine shops I've been to only have manual tools, with the exception of one that has a cnc plasma table.
[23:18:39] <furrywolf> (that no one knows how to use)
[23:20:01] <alex4nder> furrywolf: what country are you in?
[23:20:21] <furrywolf> humboldt, california. best known for growing pot, not producing useful items.
[23:20:30] <alex4nder> oh, county
[23:20:33] <alex4nder> werd
[23:21:01] <furrywolf> pretty much no factories or industry of any kind left. there's only two mills still running, and they have manual tools...
[23:21:16] <alex4nder> oregon and washington has a bunch still
[23:21:32] <furrywolf> we have something like fifty hydroponics stores, however.
[23:23:08] <furrywolf> fishing, and the industry that supported it, is dead and gone. the government did some program to buy out fishermen, and that was the end of that entire industry.
[23:23:52] <furrywolf> they overfished so heavily that boats were coming back empty, then the government fixed the problem by paying the fishermen not to fish...
[23:24:26] <furrywolf> bbl, wolfy bedtime
[23:49:14] <roycroft> we have a good, strong fishery in oregon
[23:49:21] <roycroft> not like it used to be when we overfished
[23:49:25] <roycroft> but it's far from gone
