[00:02:56] <jesseg> Tom_itx, Thanks!!!!
[02:25:26] <Deejay> moin
[05:06:28] <jthornton> morning
[05:07:57] <archivist> I see you didnt wait for full hardness of the concrete base :)
[05:08:57] <jthornton> for something that light a couple of days is good enough
[05:17:19] <XXCoder> if youre curious on journal into black hole http://jila.colorado.edu/~ajsh/insidebh/realistic_640x360_ms.avi
[05:17:25] <XXCoder> jthornton: nice
[05:18:00] <XXCoder> time on right, at zero is moment you cross horzon. left is where you in respect to center of black hole
[06:09:17] <jthornton> The XP rebooting every few minutes is for sure a hardware problem cause it does it with linuxmint too
[06:12:02] <witnit> its hot
[06:12:04] <witnit> ?
[06:12:42] <jthornton> I cleaned it out, and reseated the memory and video card
[06:13:54] <archivist> brush the dust from the cpu heatsink fins?
[06:14:02] <witnit> what happens when you let it sit in bios and watch the therms?
[06:14:42] <jthornton> yea cleaned all the dust out
[06:14:53] <jthornton> if I just let it sit it stays on forever
[06:15:24] <jthornton> another symptom is it drops the interenet connection after a few mintues
[06:15:49] <XXCoder> where can I get termeral camera cheap?
[06:15:54] <XXCoder> one that shows heats are
[06:16:10] <witnit> im pretty cure the only way to get a cheap one is to steal it
[06:16:11] <witnit> :P
[06:16:23] <XXCoder> lol
[06:16:24] <witnit> sure*
[06:16:24] <archivist> thermal
[06:16:29] <XXCoder> yeah
[06:16:54] <jthornton> cpu core temp is 100f
[06:16:56] <archivist> real ones are very expensive and have a germanium lens
[06:17:04] <witnit> maybe some government sale or something I dunno industrial auctions maybe
[06:17:16] <jthornton> video card cpu temp 130f
[06:17:28] <archivist> some cheap cams can work with a filter
[06:17:28] <XXCoder> aliexpress cheapest $167
[06:18:12] <archivist> get an infrared pass filter for any camera you have and try it
[06:18:46] <XXCoder> that allows me to see heat but not how hot it is
[06:19:08] <XXCoder> anyway not really that important heh
[06:19:20] <archivist> the grey level will be the heat
[06:19:25] <witnit> you have to descale a pit viper make your own filter, pretty sure thats the best way
[06:19:38] <archivist> white=hot dark = cool
[06:19:52] <XXCoder> but does it say if certain shade is say 80f
[06:20:25] <archivist> use a laser heat thingy for actual measuring
[06:20:44] <XXCoder> I suppose with nice hacking it can be automated
[06:20:53] <XXCoder> needs some calibration
[06:20:59] <XXCoder> set low and high
[06:21:05] <archivist> http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Temperature-Gun-50-900-C-Infrared-Digital-Non-Contact-IR-Laser-Thermometer-UK-/171072429484
[06:21:17] <renesis> those are okay
[06:21:25] <XXCoder> I already own one
[06:21:30] <archivist> I use one simple and effective
[06:21:32] <jthornton> I also cleaned the old conductive grease off the cpu and put some fresh on
[06:21:32] <XXCoder> I like it
[06:22:13] <archivist> my cheap one works better than my Minolta one
[06:22:43] <renesis> the best thermocouples are just twisted ends of thermocouple extension cable
[06:23:12] <renesis> we would do those, drop of CA
[06:23:47] <renesis> used the IR camera first sometimes to find the hotspots on the IC, cant really do that with the laser aiming probes
[06:24:33] <renesis> well, thats not true but you have to be very familiar with the equipment to do it with crude accuracy
[06:24:35] <jthornton> temps didn't get very high and I just got a reboot... I'll swap power supplies and see if that does anything
[06:33:51] <witnit> these hillary health issues are really sad
[06:34:08] <witnit> why is she even trying to run!? anyone seen those videos?
[06:34:25] <XXCoder> witnit: its bullshit
[06:34:53] <XXCoder> she broke heel in one picture 6 months ago and its recycled into "health" issues
[06:35:05] <XXCoder> heck in picture you can see broken heel
[06:35:26] <witnit> If her legs were missing and she had to use a wheelchair to be in office, im cool with that. But when shes having seizures and blacking out in front of reporters
[06:35:35] <witnit> NOPE GTFO
[06:36:37] <XXCoder> video is real, but misrepersented. though that also cause issue, shes mocking seizures
[06:36:48] <witnit> shes giving a speech, seizes, and there is this guy that comes up and has to be to KEEP TALKING
[06:36:51] <XXCoder> hilliary isnt my first choice.
[06:36:56] <witnit> no shes having a seizure
[06:37:02] <witnit> science
[06:37:24] <witnit> if my father didnt have seizures I might be skepticle... but those ARE seizures
[06:38:09] <XXCoder> what would be root cause of hers
[06:38:21] <XXCoder> its not first time we had unhealthy presidents though
[06:38:59] <witnit> mentally incapacitated is the term im looking for actually
[06:39:42] <witnit> probably what the doctor said
[06:39:58] <_methods> i think i'd rather have a narwhal with seizures in office than trump
[06:40:18] <witnit> https://www.superstation95.com/index.php/world/1790
[06:40:45] <witnit> yeah but... dementia is no joke.
[06:41:07] <witnit> anyhow enough politcs for me good day!
[06:41:23] <_methods> neither is a loud mouth douche bag with bad hair
[06:42:20] <XXCoder> _methods: indeed
[06:42:37] <XXCoder> shes not my first choice but whatever
[06:43:08] <XXCoder> issues with paper is anyone can print it
[06:44:06] <XXCoder> can't find any site on "Department of Medicine" for Kisco
[06:57:58] <XXCoder> witnit: http://www.smbc-comics.com/comic/afterlife
[06:58:26] <XXCoder> click red button when done reading
[08:38:09] <lair82> Good Morning Guys, I have a question in regards to the ilowpass component. I installed a new handwheel on the machine, and it was supposed to be the same specs as the old one. But now when you turn the handwheel at any normal rate of rpm's, the counts in halshow almost stop completely,
[08:39:40] <cradek> doesn't sound like an ilowpass problem. it sounds like you should check the actual encoder counts before any filtering
[08:40:08] <lair82> it does count, when I turn it click by click, up or down, I don't know if it is a quadrature issue
[08:40:22] <cradek> yeah if the raw counts don't count right, check the electrics
[08:40:30] <cradek> is it differential?
[08:40:41] <lair82> I will have to double check
[08:41:01] <cradek> don't change your software if you have a hardware problem
[08:41:14] <cradek> and if you just changed hardware and not software, it's a hardware problem!
[08:42:21] <lair82> I changed it a month ago, but they don't run the thing everyday, scared of new technology, and the operator came up to me just the other day and told me this
[08:42:41] <cradek> so if you turn it too fast it stops counting?
[08:43:10] <lair82> pretty much, it will almost twitch back and forth
[08:43:45] <cradek> yeah then check wiring, and check the quadrature with a real scope
[08:43:52] <lair82> but detent by detent, nice and slow, it goes up and down just fine
[08:44:16] <lair82> I'll check the wiring, real scope no dice, don't have one
[08:44:32] <cradek> but you need to have one
[08:45:05] <lair82> I have been coming to realize this lately,
[08:45:52] <lair82> I can't really drop a bunch of cash right now on something like that,
[08:48:37] <pcw_home> lair82: how is the MPG interfaced?
[08:50:18] <lair82> Through a 7i73
[08:51:21] <pcw_home> the 7I73 can count to 50 KHz or so, so my guess would be a level issue
[08:52:14] <pcw_home> I would measure the low and high levels of A and B with a voltmeter and see if they are OK
[08:52:42] <pcw_home> (a scope is better of course)
[08:54:08] <pcw_home> maybe the MPG needs pullup resistors on A and B or something like that
[08:54:42] <archivist> open collector is common on encoders
[08:55:24] <pcw_home> Hmm the 7I73 does have 4.7K pullups on the encoder inputs
[09:00:23] <Tom_itx> the new pendant open collector output? would be odd but possible
[09:01:57] <Tom_itx> pays to read the scrollback, sry archivist
[09:10:21] <lair82> Here is the pendant we bought, http://www.ebay.com/itm/Universal-CNC-4-Axis-MPG-Pendant-Handwheel-Emergency-Stop-for-Siemens-US-STOCK-/252349701581?hash=item3ac136ddcd:g:9M8AAOSwNuxXamrT
[09:14:24] <pcw_home> hmm, also check the 5V at the pendant
[09:21:40] <lair82> I do have an old, i mean old techtronic 465 I can drag out of the closet to see whats going on. I just can bring myself to donate it to Henry Ford Museum, they told me it was too old,
[09:22:08] <lair82> ^^^^ can't bring myself ^^^^
[09:22:14] <cradek> that's a perfect scope for troubleshooting wiring
[09:22:40] <cradek> much better than any cheapie modern digital scope you'd be tempted to buy from various importers
[09:22:47] <cradek> don't be fooled
[09:22:50] <lair82> I'll go drag it out
[09:23:19] <archivist> just waggle the switches a few times to clean the contacts
[09:23:34] <lair82> I have looked at the fluke 123/124's, are those something that I could use in a situation like this?
[09:23:43] <lair82> Used obviously
[09:23:45] <archivist> tek is better
[09:24:08] <archivist> real scope no digital/lcd delay
[10:21:10] <lair82> I have been out there looking at it, there is good 5v at the encoder, and I see both the a and b channel going hi/low by about 5v. I can't compare a and b at the same time to see if they are in fact 90 degrees apart ( test clip is broke on the 2nd lead)
[10:21:47] <cradek> are the signals still nice and squareish when you turn it fast?
[10:22:31] <lair82> they are definetly a nice quick high low squarish look, not a sine wave looking signal
[10:23:00] <cradek> did you test at the mesa card end of the connections?
[10:23:57] <lair82> thats where I was testing, on the pendant wiring, at the terminal block that connects the mesa ribbon to the pendant
[10:24:51] <archivist> clip one, hold the other, turn knob
[10:25:24] <archivist> may be a phase error so you should look at both at the same time
[10:25:26] <cradek> yeah seems like testing the 90 degreeness is next
[10:26:13] <cradek> what part of the probe is broken? the clip part usually just pulls off, leaving a pin
[10:29:38] <lair82> go see what I can do, be back, it is the hook that is broken off
[10:29:44] <Sync> cradek: I much prefer a digital scope over an analog brick
[10:34:44] <cradek> if feelings were wagons I'd be a grandma
[10:35:19] <Sync> wat
[11:05:05] <lair82> For some reason I cannot get that scope to roll both channels at one time, have it sit, not scrolling, I see it make a "box" on the display. Top right, bottom right, bottom left, top left, then top right, for every 1 click of the knob
[11:06:13] <archivist> should be offset by 90 degrees not an inversion or same
[11:06:50] <archivist> you want to set chopped mode and that slow speed
[11:06:58] <archivist> and/at
[11:10:51] <apex> I upgraded from wheezy to jessie (which I believe changes the default python version from 2.6 to 2.7) and now when I run hexagui I wind up with the error tkinter.TclError: Null main window
[11:12:05] <apex> Running it with python 2.6 doesn't work (perhaps my TK installation is now expecting python 2.6)
[11:13:29] <apex> The only google results for that error seem to be about errors in the python script, but of course I didn't write hexagui in the first place, and it was working up until the upgrade.
[11:13:36] <apex> Any ideas here?
[11:28:16] <MacGalempsy> cood morning
[11:31:15] <MacGalempsy> Tom_itx: interesting note on that graphix card issue. After changing the cord over to the subD cable and changing the screen saver, the machine did not error last night, even running glxgears.
[12:33:41] <Tom_itx> i've had similar happen before
[12:37:16] <lair82> After watching the scope for a while, looking at a and b together, they appear to be 90 degrees apart,
[12:37:43] <lair82> it just took a while to get a decent looking display, that I could trace
[12:47:56] <archivist> lair82, does it go wrong at speed though
[12:57:18] <Tom_L> zlog,
[13:02:34] <Tom_itx> _methods
[13:05:27] * Tom_itx googled it.
[13:25:57] <lair82> archivist, it's like it stops counting all together, just bounces +/- 1 or 2 counts when moving at a decent speed by hand.
[13:30:09] <PCW_> archivist: that Avago absolute rotary encoder turns counter uses the Wiegand effect so will count turns no matter how slow you turn
[13:32:43] <PCW_> ( count turns when not powered )
[13:32:45] <PCW_> /me is trying to get a sample
[13:36:52] <_methods> Tom_itx: what?
[13:38:27] <_methods> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xA5z9m7jzP8
[13:38:30] <_methods> cool forklift
[13:41:02] <gregcnc> those wheels are not right
[13:41:55] <_methods> krazeee wheels
[13:42:40] <gregcnc> hydraulic regen is cool
[14:19:43] <lair82> when I look at the 7i73 encoder counts pin, it will count up or down, when just barely turning the dial. but it doesn't take much more speed than that and it just stops counting on halshow. On the scope it looked like it was still cycling hi/low at decent speeds, speeds that would be normal for spinning a MPG to manually jog a machine around
[14:34:46] <PCW_> how do the signals look if measured relative to 7I73 ground?
[14:35:18] <PCW_> looks like some kind of signal integrity issue (or you dont have a A and B pair)
[14:51:52] <lair82> I measured the a and b signal against the 0V pin on the 7i73, with my dmm, and could see it cycling up and down to almost 5vdc, down to almost zero
[14:52:43] <lair82> I just swapped the 7i73, same result, I think in the morning I might swap out the mpg, maybe someone dropped this one, and doesn't want to say anything
[14:54:50] <Tom_itx> _methods, SW Q but i figured it out
[14:54:58] <_methods> oh ok
[14:55:10] <_methods> what was it?
[14:55:27] <Tom_itx> symetry
[14:55:34] <_methods> ahh
[14:55:38] <_methods> i rarely use that
[14:55:45] <_methods> symmetry mate?
[14:55:48] <_methods> or sketch symmetry
[14:55:50] <Tom_itx> uh huh
[14:55:59] <Tom_itx> sketch
[14:56:11] <_methods> ah yeah i usually just mirror
[14:56:33] <Tom_itx> imagine a heatsink fins
[14:56:57] <Tom_itx>  /\/\/\
[14:57:02] <_methods> gotcha
[14:57:36] <Tom_itx> i used formulas in catia so the'd all update the same
[14:57:50] <_methods> you can do that in sw too
[14:58:05] <Tom_itx> may try that in a bit
[14:58:21] <Tom_itx> just mowed and nobody want's to be near me atm.. shower time
[14:58:28] <_methods> hehe
[15:00:12] <Tom_itx> i like to try things in both to learn
[16:05:14] <JT-Shop> http://gnipsel.com/images/equipment-shed/e-shed-15.jpg
[16:06:26] <dioz> JT-Shop: you figure out a price for your xy table yet? i'll give you my postal code so you can figure out shipping too
[16:06:55] <dioz> B-)
[16:07:31] <JT-Shop> not for sale right now check back when I'm 75 or so
[16:08:33] <dioz> hah
[16:10:12] <XXCoder> JT-Shop: wow youre doing amazing thing with my shop. :)
[16:15:56] <JT-Shop> for not building it I'm doing a lot of work it seems like lol
[16:16:13] <JT-Shop> be ready Friday for you to move in...
[16:20:17] <Deejay> gn8
[17:26:28] <Tom_itx> looks nearly move in ready!
[17:27:08] <Tom_itx> could be another 25' wider though :)
[17:34:10] <Frank_15> hi guuuuys
[17:41:32] <Frank_15> finally i could install my linuxcnc and im testing my latency with a max of 10000 jitter :D quite workable
[17:43:03] <Frank_15> is there more config, or setup i can do before i wire every i/o of the 7i76??
[17:48:46] <JT-Shop> I usually verify each I/O connection in a watch window
[17:51:37] <JT-Shop> Tom_itx: it could be a 100' bigger lol
[17:54:43] <Frank_15> ill have to check up on that!
[17:55:19] <Frank_15> do you use the machine, like on the irc or a browser while it runs a linuxcnc g cod program?
[17:59:31] <JT-Shop> you can just run hal and load the hostmot2 then run halshow
[18:06:28] <Valen> Frank_15 one of the people here compiles giant programmes like mysql and the like whilst it's running lol
[18:07:01] <Valen> Email web browsing and irc are things we do
[18:08:02] <Valen> The only thing to watch for for us if starting a new open gl window, that causes a big latency spike, though i haven't seen if that persists in the newer versions
[18:15:35] <Duc_mobile> finally got linuxcnc loaded on the laptop with a max jitter of 196,583 (ns).
[18:16:14] <JT-Shop> Tom_itx: http://gnipsel.com/images/equipment-shed/e-shed-15.jpg
[18:16:26] <Frank_15> Valen: thanks for the info!!
[18:16:48] <Frank_15> i have 10000 max jitter, with 1gb ram
[18:16:55] <Frank_15> i wonder how much that could be with 4 or 2
[18:18:20] <JT-Shop> I don't think memory has any effect on jitter so long as your not swapping to disk
[18:18:36] <JT-Shop> are you running the latency-histogram ?
[18:18:59] <JT-Shop> 10k if fine with a Mesa card
[18:19:22] <Duc_mobile> would 196k be too high for a mesa card?
[18:19:24] <JT-Shop> 10k is fine for everything really
[18:19:36] <Duc_mobile> for none cnc cutting?
[18:19:41] <JT-Shop> yea you want to be < 100k
[18:19:57] <Frank_15> what the hell is the latency histogram? i was running the latency test already installed with the iso 2.7
[18:20:04] <JT-Shop> none cnc cutting?
[18:20:24] <JT-Shop> open a terminal and type in latency-histogram
[18:20:36] <Duc_mobile> http://i1221.photobucket.com/albums/dd465/shefron/Guns/Turrent/turrent_zpswcmm5jwl.jpg
[18:20:50] <JT-Shop> actually type in latency-histogram --no-base
[18:21:45] <Frank_15> i heard changing bios a bit helped with latency, am i wrong?
[18:22:11] <JT-Shop> sorry latency-histogram --nobase
[18:22:43] <JT-Shop> turn off any thing in bios like power saving etc
[18:22:50] <Frank_15> im havent got the linuxcnc pc wired right now :( i will google and check it out later, thanks! what is the difference between that and the normal latency test
[18:23:17] <JT-Shop> it's a histogram
[18:23:38] <JT-Shop> if you have linuxcnc loaded it works
[18:24:41] <Frank_15> cool, will check it. im literall righting it down so i dont forget to do it later hehe
[18:25:01] <JT-Shop> understand
[18:25:05] <Tom_itx> JT-Shop, were those 2x or 1x siding nailers?
[18:25:19] <JT-Shop> 2x4 lath boards
[18:25:32] <JT-Shop> or purlins as some call them
[18:25:52] <Tom_itx> stuff styrofoam between those then pack the rest with insul
[18:26:08] <JT-Shop> they did some awesome bracing of the structure
[18:26:51] <Tom_itx> are those corner braces permanent?
[18:26:54] <JT-Shop> they insulated it but I'll add more
[18:26:55] <JT-Shop> no
[18:27:11] <Frank_15> going off early today, goodnight everyone
[18:27:28] <JT-Shop> goodnight
[18:27:36] <JT-Shop> mommy is home
[18:28:08] <Tom_itx> tin roof too?
[18:28:11] <Tom_itx> looks like it
[18:31:46] <JT-Shop> yea all metal outside
[18:32:00] <Tom_itx> 10' celings
[18:32:08] <JT-Shop> 12'
[18:32:11] <Tom_itx> nice
[18:32:32] <JT-Shop> shop is 10' but I wanted to be able to pull the hoe in
[18:33:04] <JT-Shop> door is 12' wide and 11' tall
[18:33:05] <Tom_itx> besides you can get larger cnc's now
[18:33:38] <JT-Shop> naw, the building is not for cnc machines just to give me room in herer
[18:34:16] <Tom_itx> i give it a year before it's full of stuff
[18:34:33] <JT-Shop> I bet you lose
[18:34:35] <JT-Shop> lol
[18:35:02] <JT-Shop> sheetmetal stuff is going in there and manual lathe and mill
[18:35:04] <JT-Shop> maybe
[18:35:43] <JT-Shop> I think I could fill it in a week or three
[18:35:46] <JT-Shop> lol
[18:36:29] <Tom_itx> you still do stuff for briggs?
[18:37:25] <JT-Shop> not much anymore the management has changed a few times lately
[18:38:25] <JT-Shop> I've been doing some work for Revere Plastics and they make gas tanks for Briggs among other things
[18:39:14] <Tom_itx> we've got wescon products here that make cables etc for mowers amongst other things like cosmetic moulded cases & medical plastics
[18:39:49] <JT-Shop> I need to see if I can get back in with Briggs
[18:40:06] <Tom_itx> got to go thru both plants once quite a few years ago
[18:40:16] <JT-Shop> made some serious $$ with them
[18:40:24] <Tom_itx> yeah
[18:42:11] * JT-Shop puts on the Thai chef hat tonight
[18:42:25] * Tom_itx just finished pizza
[18:42:33] <JT-Shop> yum
[18:42:48] <JT-Shop> do you guys have a poppa murphy
[18:42:54] <Tom_itx> yup
[18:42:58] <Tom_itx> they're good
[18:43:09] <JT-Shop> that is our favorite
[18:43:11] <Tom_itx> this was costco cause they like it
[18:43:42] <Tom_itx> there's a knolla's pizza here i really like
[18:43:58] <JT-Shop> don't know about them
[18:44:38] <Tom_itx> local it seems
[18:44:42] <Tom_itx> http://knollaspizza.com/
[18:45:53] <JT-Shop> yum NY thin crust pizzy
[18:45:53] <Tom_itx> we used to have big cheese, godfathers, pizza hut, papa murphys, papa john's, knolla's and maybe a couple more
[18:46:38] <Tom_itx> dominoes
[18:46:43] <Tom_itx> yuck
[18:46:47] <JT-Shop> I like papa murphys cause you can cook it when your ready to eat
[18:46:52] <Tom_itx> yeah
[18:47:29] <JT-Shop> time to start soaking the rice noodles
[18:47:35] <JT-Shop> talk to you later
[18:47:40] <Tom_itx> later..
[19:03:50] <rene-dev_> 7i76 cheat sheet https://seafile.ist-wunderbar.com/f/ea8ef79a3a/
[19:09:26] <MrHindsight> HAL file http://pastebin.ca/3682856 How do I getthe DRO in Axis to show the position? It currently only shows the DTG vs current position.
[19:10:53] <CaptHindsight> ^^ open loop servo with no encoders
[19:22:24] <witnit> MrHindsight: isnt that something you adjust via the interface? like take the mouse up to the Menu:View: then checkmark the option to show current vs dtg?
[19:24:49] <CaptHindsight> yeah, show commanded position
[19:25:08] <CaptHindsight> vs actual
[19:51:17] <CaptHindsight> never mind :)
[20:00:23] <witnit> I see now, I guess I never thought of needing that
[20:04:21] <Duc_mobile> can anyone explain why linuxcnc is having a issue with this gcode. says near line 29%

[20:04:44] <cradek> use a pastebin

[20:04:51] <Duc_mobile> N95 X-3.4449 Y0.
[20:04:53] <cradek> also, say what the exact error is
[20:04:53] <Duc_mobile> N100 X-2.4359 Y2.4359
[20:04:55] <Duc_mobile> N105 X0. Y3.4449

[20:05:11] <Duc_mobile> N145 G90
[20:05:13] <Duc_mobile> line 29 is N140
[20:05:30] <Duc_mobile> cannot use axis values without a g code that uses them
[20:05:58] <cradek> well N125 would trigger that
[20:06:11] <cradek> G80 explicitly cancels the motion mode, and then you have a bare Z
[20:06:20] <Duc_mobile> http://pastebin.com/7in3Ux7s
[20:06:44] <Duc_mobile> I guess I need to modify the post processor in hsmworks
[20:06:55] <Duc_mobile> so delete line N120 then run the code
[20:07:05] <cradek> guessing it thought that would give a G0 on line N125
[20:07:11] <cradek> just add an explicit G0 there
[20:08:31] <Duc_mobile> ok that worked
[20:09:32] <Duc_mobile> slowly learning gcode while doing projects
[20:23:50] <dioz> anyone wanna *hick* talk about uhm... fuckin *hick* welding sheet metal?
[20:23:56] <dioz> i think i got *hick* tha fever
[20:38:12] <Tom_itx> Duc_mobile, i don't think you need the G91 on N140 either as the G28 will retract to 0 anyway
[20:40:32] <Duc_mobile> Tom_itx: not sure any of the generic code for fanuc on HSMxpress works well. at least the peck drill didnt
[20:41:35] <Tom_itx> i had to fix my post a bit too
[20:41:50] <Tom_itx> most of it was pretty close though
[20:42:20] <Duc_mobile> do you have it for a general 3axis mill?
[20:42:34] <Tom_itx> i have it for linuxcnc
[20:42:47] <Tom_itx> not hsmxpress
[20:43:29] <Tom_itx> but it works, even rigid tapping output
[20:51:44] <Duc_mobile> I would love to try the rigid tapping on the machine but not sure I trust my skills yet
[20:58:07] <Duc_mobile> found a HSMexpress post BigJohnT made
[23:08:02] <jesseg> Anyone use IGES?
[23:08:28] <jesseg> I wonder if it's any less arcane of a file structure than DXF
[23:24:08] <jesseg> oh I get it. DXF was invented by fortran programmers. That explains it I guess :P
[23:25:16] <dioz> how many amps do i wanna run if i'm tig welding 26 gauge galv iron sheet metal?
[23:26:01] <jesseg> dioz, get some extra and experiment. It depends on lots of other things too.
[23:26:56] <dioz> yah
[23:27:02] <dioz> that is the correct answer
[23:28:29] <jesseg> oh are you taking a test? :P
[23:36:56] <eeriegeek> troll
[23:50:07] <jesseg> probably :P
