05:00 AM KimK: XXCoder:
05:00 AM XXCoder: having bit of internet issues eh heh
05:02 AM KimK: Yes, HexChat has started crashing (suddenly disappears) when I move the mouse over it. It's never done that before. Running KVirc temporarily while HexChat starts and stops.
05:03 AM XXCoder: odd
05:03 AM XXCoder: maybe ask in #hexchat
05:03 AM XXCoder: some anti-help assholes there though
05:04 AM KimK: I posted my question but everybody's asleep there. I'll check back later. Ha, thanks for the tip!
05:04 AM XXCoder: np :)
05:26 AM IchGucksLive: hi

05:27 AM XXCoder: here we got warnings...
05:27 AM XXCoder: heatwave, thurs it will reach 105f
05:27 AM IchGucksLive: XXCoder: did kom solve his problem
05:27 AM XXCoder: dunno
05:29 AM IchGucksLive: only 90F here
05:29 AM IchGucksLive: KimK still on the channel
05:30 AM XXCoder: oh hes using different irc client for now
05:30 AM IchGucksLive: KimK_: still on
05:30 AM IchGucksLive: XXCoder: did he say or post what problem he got
05:31 AM XXCoder: yeah hexchat just closes when mnouseover
05:31 AM IchGucksLive: log is telling me only problem need help
05:31 AM IchGucksLive: so it is not cnc related
05:32 AM IchGucksLive: then its best to move over to chatzilla

09:00 AM frank___: hello
09:05 AM frank___: quick question regarding to noise, im having problems with my x axis servo encoder, driver outputs encoder comunication alarm. All wires are very close to each other, and yet x axis is the only problem. this same motor is close to the cable chain carrier, is it possible that the cables are making a problem to the encoder rather than the signal wires?
09:19 AM archivist: encoder is signal
09:33 AM JT-Shop: is the encoder cable shielded and grounded on ONE END ONLY?
09:48 AM adamj12b: can somebody tell me if it is possible and how I change gears in Axis?
09:48 AM adamj12b: Im bench testing my spindle and seem to be stuck in gear 1.
10:20 AM IchGucksLive: hi
10:20 AM IchGucksLive: adamj12b: still here
10:21 AM IchGucksLive: adamj12b: http://linuxcnc.org/docs/html/man/man9/gearchange.9.html
10:28 AM IchGucksLive: off till later
10:28 AM frank___: jt-shop: sorry delay was figuring out the problem
10:30 AM frank___: yes shielded on one end, it happened to be (at least till now) that the cable (flex cable) was twisting the molex connector on the driver and didnt apply enought pressure on one of the leds
10:30 AM frank___: leads
10:30 AM frank___: thankfully** heh
10:36 AM adamj12b: Yes, I mhere

10:40 AM JT-Shop: glad you got that sorted out
11:14 AM frank___: thanks jt

12:38 PM FAalbers: What a great FPV video -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OQRaBeivbAo
12:39 PM FAalbers: Sorry ! Wrong channel !!
12:51 PM IchGucksLive: hi boddenkreuzer all up and running as expectrd
12:51 PM boddenkreuzer: hi, yes and no
12:52 PM IchGucksLive: so good and bad
12:52 PM boddenkreuzer: the whole week we milled our parts for the vacuum table, but it is very noisy
12:52 PM boddenkreuzer: so we have to start the next hardware session...
12:52 PM IchGucksLive: learning bye duing
01:10 PM IchGucksLive: Loetmichel: how did the bad weathere overtake you
01:55 PM Gaston|DSP: Q: For a lathe which is most common for X, diameter or radie ?
01:55 PM Gaston|DSP is now known as Gaston|Home
01:56 PM archivist: personal preference I think
02:04 PM IchGucksLive: Gaston|Home: and it also depends on your CAM output
02:05 PM Gaston|Home: yeah, I'm fiddling with a post processor for Fusion 360 for a Emco Lathe
02:05 PM fraank_: easy way to invert stepper direction? couldnt make it switch making step scale negative for z axis
02:07 PM IchGucksLive: invert the dir pin fraank_
02:07 PM Gaston|Home: I can select Radius or diameter in both the post processor and the lathe, so basically I'm free to choose
02:08 PM pcw_mesa: Or if you have differential Step/Dir just swap the Dir wires
02:08 PM IchGucksLive: Gaston|Home: thin it is a matter of time how you will feel best
02:08 PM archivist: when you use the lathe in mdi mode you can change and use either mode
02:08 PM IchGucksLive: im off Gn8
02:08 PM Gaston|Home: Well, that's why I'm asking what is the most common, I can live with both....
02:10 PM fraank_: pcw_mesa: kay thankss!
02:31 PM archivist: oops http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Corona-1-4-Cap-Bench-Mounted-High-speed-Driller/272776909898
02:38 PM Tom_itx is now known as Tom_L
02:40 PM archivist: for anybody why needs a project http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Holbrook-Centre-Lathe-Model-C-No-13/272776914861
02:41 PM Tom_L: don't let andy see that
02:41 PM Deejay: may not post to germany
02:43 PM archivist: I am resisting it too, no space even for the drill I won
02:43 PM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
02:43 PM archivist: I have one already but it came with bent spindle, so for spares it is worth it
02:44 PM Tom_L: did those have a foot brake?
02:44 PM Tom_L: i don't see one
02:45 PM archivist: lathe?, does not look like it
02:45 PM Tom_L: that's sure a handy feature
02:46 PM JT-Shop: my Samson has a foot brake that injects DC into the motor
02:47 PM FinboySlick: archivist: That's an extremely beefy lathe considering the swing and spindle bore.
02:47 PM FinboySlick: Sort of makes me think of a 10EE
02:48 PM JT-Shop: I looked at a mini "precision" lathe at horrible freight and man was it crap
02:48 PM FinboySlick: I think you have to buy those just for the iron and then you have to re-machine the whole thing straight.
02:49 PM archivist: effin solid :)
02:49 PM archivist: the drill I got is damned hard to lift
02:51 PM FinboySlick: archivist: I wonder if the mechanical side matches the potential precision afforded by all that mass.
02:53 PM archivist: probably less chatter, better finish, more repeatable than modern junk, dunno if it has plain or taper bearings
02:54 PM FinboySlick: Well, I'd take it home if I owned a shipping empire ;)
02:54 PM FinboySlick: Crack the new concrete floor in my yet-to-be-built home.
02:55 PM archivist: looks twice the weight of my 1940's southbend
02:55 PM Tom_L: FinboySlick, you didn't plan ahead :)
02:56 PM FinboySlick: Tom_L: Actually, that's a design feature *specifically* to prevent me from doing something silly like buy too big a machine.
02:56 PM FinboySlick: I'm still mildly sore I missed out on that Schaublin.
02:57 PM archivist: what Schaublin /me checks garage to see if it is still there
02:58 PM archivist: like this? http://www.collection.archivist.info/archive/DJCPD/PD/2008/2008_10_07_Richards_of_Burton_clockworks/P1010232.JPG
02:58 PM FinboySlick: There was a Schaublin #53 for sale for about 3000 Kanukistan Kopeks.
02:58 PM FinboySlick: archivist: Can't read that too well, is it a 120?
02:59 PM archivist: 120 VM
02:59 PM FinboySlick: OK, totally jealous now.
02:59 PM archivist: sorry :)
03:00 PM Tom_L: at least you know where one is :)
03:00 PM archivist: it followed me hone when the clockworks shut
03:00 PM FinboySlick: archivist: If I promise not to murder you, will you put it in your will for me? ;)
03:00 PM archivist: all the rest followed the boss...hrmpf
03:01 PM FinboySlick: archivist: It must be a pleasure to use.
03:01 PM archivist: I am still not using it, the motor is "special"
03:02 PM archivist: two speed 3 phase
03:02 PM FinboySlick: Did you have any 135 at the clockwork? Those are super-rare.
03:03 PM archivist: the variator speed box is part the same casting
03:03 PM archivist: nah
03:03 PM archivist: mainly the clockmakers size
03:03 PM archivist: http://www.collection.archivist.info/archive/DJCPD/PD/2008/2008_01_05_Clockworks_schaublin_70/P1050047.JPG
03:04 PM FinboySlick: Part of what held me back on the #53 is the ability to find tooling.
03:05 PM FinboySlick: (and the fact that I have no idea how to handle something this big... and that I'd have to convert the electricals ... and that I have nowhere to put it)
03:06 PM archivist: I dont know the 53, our were mostly 70
03:08 PM FinboySlick: #53 is a milling machine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBQshGm33lQ
03:10 PM archivist: cant see yt on this browser anymore
03:11 PM FinboySlick: Oh, hmm... http://anglo-swiss-tools.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/SV53-61-1.png
03:11 PM archivist: site I go to for schaublin info http://anglo-swiss-tools.co.uk/schaublin-53-milling-machine/
03:12 PM FinboySlick: Yeah, that's where I took that second link from.
03:12 PM archivist: you can mill your chinesium square on one of those
03:13 PM FinboySlick: That was going to be one of its first project had I been foolish enough to buy it.
03:14 PM FinboySlick: It's great iron, but in this age of VFD and servo controls, it really would just be a super-complicated mess of gears.
03:14 PM FinboySlick: To think they designed this thing long before CAD is pretty mind boggling.
03:15 PM archivist: I just put a vfd on my old adcock & shipley, just use the back gear for slow stuff
03:26 PM * Loetmichel just put the laundry on the line... and in the process of emptying the washing machine i found not one or two but THREE of my USB-thumbdrives in it (one in the door seal(front loader) and 2 in the pump filter) So THATS where they disappear every time. Lets hope they still work tomorrow when dried throughly ;)
04:11 PM Deejay: gn8
04:11 PM jdh: I've washed & dried a few with no probs
04:37 PM Loetmichel: yeah, i expect no problems, still i will flush them with distilled water tomorrow at the company
04:37 PM Loetmichel: to get the lye out
04:37 PM Loetmichel: and then with isopropyl alc to get the water out
04:37 PM fraank_: Finally!! itS ALIVEE!! https://photos.app.goo.gl/5JECom2m94Gvcu1C2
04:38 PM Loetmichel: before i plug them into an USB port again
04:38 PM Loetmichel: fraank_: that looks quite sturdy for a gantry router
04:38 PM fraank_: thanks!
04:38 PM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
04:39 PM fraank_: 150kg gantry
04:39 PM fraank_: today i ran my first file
04:45 PM fraank_: the machine is slowing down a lot on some curves, is it that i need to hand edit the program and add G64? i dont see it anywhere on the file
04:46 PM fraank_: i checked and the cad file is not made up of multiple straight lines
04:54 PM JT-Shop: fraank_: use G64P some tolerance you like
06:03 PM fraank_: jt-shop: worked like a charm g64
06:03 PM fraank_: thanks
06:09 PM JT-Shop: great
06:16 PM fraank_: it was quiet today on the chat

08:06 PM tiwake: what model lathe is this? http://www.centroidcnc.com/images/hardinge_retrofit_new_600.jpg
08:15 PM BeachBumPete: Looks like a Hardinge super precision perhaps an HNC?
08:20 PM tiwake: hmm
08:44 PM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
09:23 PM malcom2073_: My boss bought a hardinge DSM... though I've yet to figure out why
09:25 PM jdh: because it is there
09:26 PM malcom2073_: not a DSM... what's the one that was automatic screw machine but without computer control?
09:26 PM BeachBumPete: like a DV59?
09:26 PM malcom2073_: One of these: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kBIbcvJUcfs
09:56 PM Tom_L: i think i ran one of those for a tiny bit during a layoff once
