04:56 AM XXCoder: im not sure about this - did usa president win race in 2016?
04:56 AM XXCoder: because he had 6 rallies this month
04:57 AM XXCoder: I dont think any previous president had rallies post-election

10:16 AM roycroft: well, i ordered some bins from schaller
10:16 AM roycroft: hopefully they'll work out well
10:24 AM FinboySlick: XXCoder: That was a very complicated bolt. I wonder if the threading on the mill was real.
10:57 AM Loetmichel: FinboySlick: it is possible
10:57 AM Loetmichel: if the z feed is at the same motor as the spindle
10:58 AM Loetmichel: i.e: made with a gear instead of a seperate moror
10:58 AM Loetmichel: motor
10:58 AM Loetmichel: if you mean the Engineer bruns vid
12:01 PM FinboySlick: Loetmichel: Yeah.
12:14 PM Tom_L: roycroft, if not you can send em to me
12:25 PM gloops: software for g-code for a robot arm?
12:55 PM roycroft: sadly, tom_l, i think i'll likely be purchasing a buttload more of them vs. getting rid of them
12:56 PM roycroft: the folks at lee valley just got back to me, and there is no further discount available, no matter how many thousands of the allit bins i would purchase
12:56 PM roycroft: so the schaller ones are definitely the only feasible option
12:56 PM roycroft: $0.40 each vs. $1.20 each for the small ones
12:57 PM roycroft: multiplied by 3000 or so
01:06 PM MarcelineVQ: checked uline?
01:09 PM MarcelineVQ: hmm, their selection is more limited than I remember
02:04 PM CaptHindsight: http://www.3ders.org/articles/20181018-icon-3d-prints-homes-in-24-hours-raises-9-million-for-expansion.html
02:04 PM CaptHindsight: except for plumbing and electric
02:05 PM CaptHindsight: so I guess they print you an outhouse nearby
02:25 PM * JT-Shop got the power back on :)
02:27 PM MarcelineVQ: guess the shitty banding between the desposition layers is part of the aesthetic
02:28 PM MarcelineVQ: The indoor plugs aren't even recessed..
02:28 PM MarcelineVQ: Can't beat that price though, can't imagine it's real
02:36 PM Loetmichel: *GNHIHI* just microwaved myself a bit of mac&cheese while hanging the laundry on the drying rack... MW done... *BEEEEEP BEEEEEP* *pause* *BEEEEEP BEEEEEP* $me: "GEH MIR NICHT AUFN SACK!" (dont get on my balls (nerves)) pressing stop on the MW. back to the laundry basked, picking the next tshirt... there is a Yoda head on it and a writing: "Mir nicht auf den sack gehen du sollst!"...

08:23 PM _unreal_: plug mold to build a MOLD so I can build my computer box for my RPI lcd
08:32 PM oli is now known as Guest9052
10:19 PM ziper: is there any reason to use those aluminum extrusions that are so popular instead of just welding up bedframes
10:22 PM MarcelineVQ: depending which extrusion, and machine, you have in mind: extrusion is likely to dampen minor vibration better than bedframe. I'd be inclined towards welding square-tubing though if the machine won't be moved anywhere.
10:38 PM Tom_L: bedframes are kinda thin
10:39 PM Tom_L: i went with 2" thickwall square tube
10:39 PM Tom_L: and 4" on the column
10:39 PM Tom_L: was gonna get 6" but i couldn't lift it to get it home
10:40 PM Tom_L: like 1/2" wall or more
