01:49 AM Contract_Pilot: I think thy know someone is watching.
01:53 AM Contract_Pilot: 32F here and well shop heater cannot keep up..
01:58 AM Contract_Pilot: Pink yea lost one last week when temps dipped in to the 20's outside heater was on almost all the time blowing air tward the brooder.
01:58 AM Contract_Pilot: I since changed it..
01:58 AM Contract_Pilot: Heaterfan blows away from brooder temps much more stable.
02:00 AM Contract_Pilot: Shop Stalker wants them chicken nuggets.. http://www.stevenrhine.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Kitty-TV-3-1024x768.jpg
02:01 AM pink_vampire: Soooooooooo cute
02:01 AM pink_vampire: can you take a picture of the rpi?
02:03 AM pink_vampire: Contract_Pilot: ^
02:04 AM Contract_Pilot: Here are our ducks. http://www.stevenrhine.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/20190201_114212-1024x768.jpg
02:05 AM Contract_Pilot: Umm the Raspberry Pi?
02:05 AM Deejay: moin
02:05 AM Contract_Pilot: Deejay
02:05 AM pink_vampire: hi Deejay
02:05 AM Deejay: :)
02:05 AM pink_vampire: Contract_Pilot: yeah, I want to do something similar
02:13 AM Contract_Pilot: DM Pink
02:17 AM miss0r: morning
02:20 AM Contract_Pilot: Morning..
02:20 AM Loetmichel: hmm, anyone knows of a screw terminal(strip) for PCB mount that can do 8A per pin, is max 12mm high, has the wire AND the screw parallel to the PCB (plug in terminals would work, too) AND is in stock at RS or farnell (or any other that delivers 1 day to germany)... I need to connect a few DCDC convereters sideways between pins and heatsink...
02:41 AM selroc: hiya pink
02:43 AM pink_vampire: hi selroc
03:05 AM Contract_Pilot: Java be digging to china
03:18 AM miss0r: Loetmichel: That is quite a list of requirements :D
03:20 AM miss0r: and with rs-online down for maintenance... :)
03:29 AM miss0r: Loetmichel: Something like this: https://dk.rs-online.com/web/p/printklemraekker/8553142/
03:31 AM Loetmichel: miss0r: i use these now: https://www.reichelt.de/anschlussklemmensystem-6-pol-rm3-81-akl-369-06-p36654.html
03:31 AM Loetmichel: and these: https://www.reichelt.de/wannenstecker-fuer-akl-369-6-pol-rm3-81-akl-382-06-p36664.html
03:31 AM miss0r: I thought you wanted the screw/spring release to face the same direction as the wire?
03:31 AM Loetmichel: should work in the aviable space
03:31 AM Loetmichel: if its pluggable thats not an issue
03:32 AM Loetmichel: i can screw in the wires and THEN plug it in ;)
03:32 AM Loetmichel: its only that i just have side access to the DCDC converter
03:33 AM miss0r: indeed
03:33 AM miss0r: so, you would actualy rather do a plugin solution?
03:35 AM Loetmichel: i could do both
03:35 AM miss0r: Loetmichel: Yesterday I felt particularly proud of myself; I managed to fsck up the splines(last operation.. well second to last) on this axle.... https://imgur.com/a/Uv9aQeh
03:36 AM Loetmichel: but the plugin solution has the advantage of less hassle if you have to dismantle the PC
03:36 AM miss0r: what I am thinking exactly
03:36 AM Loetmichel: its already full enough in there ... > http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=17280&g2_imageViewsIndex=1
03:37 AM Loetmichel: dcdc-converter is the black block on the back wall
03:37 AM Loetmichel: and will get a metal cover "just above the pins"
03:38 AM Loetmichel: happens
03:38 AM Loetmichel: the spline fu***
03:38 AM miss0r: not sure what I am looking at
03:39 AM Loetmichel: miss0r: a PC with 12" touch monitor ;)
03:39 AM miss0r: but that computer enclosure looks sturdy as hell :)
03:39 AM Loetmichel: the back "wall" is a heatsink
03:39 AM miss0r: ahh
03:40 AM Loetmichel: and the black block is the main DCDC for 24V->12v
03:40 AM Loetmichel: thats it in assembled and working: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=17283&g2_imageViewsIndex=1
03:41 AM Loetmichel: http://www.cyrom.org/palbum/main.php?g2_itemId=17286&g2_imageViewsIndex=1 <- back side
03:41 AM miss0r: I've often wanted to build a sturdy portable PC with a extented long range xbee coms module in it :)
03:42 AM miss0r: damn that thing looks nice
03:42 AM miss0r: that alot of fiber ports :)
03:42 AM Loetmichel: its a "§$(%& to assemble though. customer restraints for size.
03:42 AM Loetmichel: was a pain to get all the components in there ;)
03:43 AM miss0r: hehe. Can you tell me what it is for?/used for?
03:43 AM Loetmichel: some kind of dispatch terminal for audio signals (voip) in different networks
03:43 AM Loetmichel: for military use ;)
03:44 AM miss0r: ofc. it is :)
03:45 AM miss0r: Sadly it seems my module of choice is not for sale anymore: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/retired/9411
03:45 AM miss0r: 1w 40miles range serial point to point comms
03:46 AM pink_vampire: 900 mhz need very high tower to get that
03:46 AM miss0r: sure. but look at the size of that transmitter/receiver :)
03:47 AM miss0r: At one point I wanted to make two elu briefcases with a small computer in each, and a ridiculous encryption, as two chat clients connceted to eachother with that module
03:47 AM miss0r: that would be realy nice :)
03:48 AM miss0r: Not sure what to use it for.. but nice anyway
03:48 AM pink_vampire: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Xtend-XTP9B-DPS-001PIX-Wireless-Data-Transmission-Module-Kit-RF-Box-900mAh-1W-sz/163391621203
03:49 AM miss0r: yeah... I'm pretty sure I would get hell if I started transmitting on 900mhz without a permit :)
03:51 AM pink_vampire: i know ham radio have a band in 900 mhz
03:53 AM miss0r: In Denmark we are only allowed to use the 27mhz band without lisence, and even then we have to stay under a specific transmitting power.
03:54 AM jthornton: morning
03:54 AM miss0r: (I don't remember the exact numbers). But 'round here 27mhz is considered amature radio
03:54 AM miss0r: morning jt-m[m]
03:54 AM miss0r: bah...
03:54 AM miss0r: morning jt
03:55 AM jthornton: same guy lol
04:22 AM XXCoder: heys
04:22 AM XXCoder: hey pink_vampire
04:23 AM pink_vampire: hi XXCoder
04:23 AM XXCoder: hows things
04:24 AM pink_vampire: +- ok
04:24 AM XXCoder: :)
04:27 AM pink_vampire: did you saw what i did?

04:29 AM pink_vampire: https://i.imgur.com/O407ivD.png
04:29 AM XXCoder: reworking a electrics box?
04:29 AM XXCoder: ah tabs cut out
04:30 AM pink_vampire: correct
04:30 AM XXCoder: light status with button?
04:30 AM pink_vampire: and i moved the fuse holders to the front plate
04:30 AM pink_vampire: now it is going to be mount in the panel
04:32 AM XXCoder: easker to change em eh
05:23 AM Tom_L: hello
05:23 AM XXCoder: hello
05:25 AM jthornton: morning
05:25 AM Tom_L: rethinking my thread macro again :)
05:26 AM Tom_L: gonna make it able to do multiple passes. not just 2
05:26 AM Tom_L: after looking at some of the threads i decided 2 may be a bit much of a cut
05:27 AM XXCoder: expecally if you wanna cut harder metals. yeah
05:27 AM Tom_L: thinking about steel
05:27 AM Tom_L: possibly making more sherline mill holders
05:28 AM Tom_L: those are 3/4 16
05:29 AM XXCoder: 16 pretty thick threads eh?
05:29 AM Tom_L: UNF
05:30 AM Tom_L: UNC is 10
05:30 AM XXCoder: interesting
05:43 AM gloops: great, finally get to the point where ive got a few designs to make in any quantity, noisy/snaggy ballscrew on Y
05:52 AM XXCoder: doh
05:53 AM XXCoder: dirt chips etc in nut?
05:53 AM gloops: i think i know what it is, i adjusted the plate carrying the Z last week, didnt compensate with the ballnut, ill shim it right, just if its already damaged the nut
06:03 AM BitEvil is now known as SpeedEvil
06:18 AM jthornton: hmm supposed to be sunny and 58°F today
06:45 AM commavir_ is now known as commavir

08:18 AM miss0r: ha.
08:48 AM gregcnc: damn GPS
09:27 AM Jymmm: gregcnc: YEAH, throw that piece of shit out and use a sexton instead :)
09:28 AM Jymmm: Tom_L: Poor bastard
09:34 AM Jymmm: Frozen faucet preveter... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01KYDVTVG/
10:16 AM gregcnc: like a wax thermostat but backward?
10:32 AM Jymmm: I'm thinking so gregcnc, nice idea when you're not expecting a cold front
12:13 PM CNC_Brian: Guy's, anybody got a recommendation on some sealant that is compatible with flood coolant.
12:14 PM JT-Shop: that would depend on the type of coolant I'd assume
12:14 PM CNC_Brian: I made my enclosure out of plastic covered wood to contain the mess, but have just ordered a coolant system
12:15 PM CNC_Brian: I was worried someone would say that.
12:15 PM CNC_Brian: I just use a oil based coolant on my lathe so was intending to sick with that.
12:16 PM CNC_Brian: I really want it for washing away chips so I don't re-cut
12:16 PM CNC_Brian: Don't do enough machining to worry about tool ware
12:17 PM CNC_Brian: Was just going to try silicone
12:19 PM JT-Shop: I don't think silicone is very oil resistant
12:21 PM JT-Shop: nice the speed trap I went though the other day will cost me $137
12:22 PM Tom_L: CNC_Brian a welded tank painted with imron etc would suffice
12:22 PM Tom_L: oops
12:22 PM Tom_L: tryin out the new car?
12:22 PM Tom_L: surprised it didn't take over and slow your arse down!
12:22 PM JT-Shop: took the old car to get a trade in evaluation and wanted a pizza
12:22 PM CNC_Brian: Tom, I already built it and have been using it for 2 years.
12:23 PM Tom_L: they've been on a campaign around here for a couple months
12:23 PM JT-Shop: stupid street went from 40 to 25 and I didn't notice
12:23 PM Tom_L: local cops favorite hangouts
12:23 PM CNC_Brian: Easy stuff to get in the uk is silicone or polys something
12:23 PM CNC_Brian: Polyetherline??
12:24 PM Tom_L: since you've been using it, decontaminating it will be key no matter what you use
12:25 PM JT-Shop: + $2.50 to pay online lol
12:26 PM Tom_L: they recently got a whole fleet of bikes here
12:27 PM Tom_L: totaled one the first week
12:28 PM Tom_L: have you single pointed threads on your lathe?
12:30 PM CNC_Brian: No they are Acme
12:30 PM Tom_L: directed to JT-Shop
12:33 PM JT-Shop: bicycles?
12:33 PM Tom_L: huh?
12:33 PM Tom_L: oh no motorcycles
12:34 PM Tom_L: they made them as hard to see as possible too
12:34 PM Tom_L: hardly any markings
12:34 PM Jymmm: haha
12:38 PM Jymmm: The next time you change spark plug cables, get some clear tubing and make a spark tester =)
12:41 PM Tom_L: just grab the wire end to test it
01:03 PM HighInBC: tactile indication
01:05 PM Tom_L: Jymmm what was wrong with the car?
01:08 PM JT-Shop: now that's what I call customer service, 2 minutes on the phone and a new scope for my Gamo is on the way
01:16 PM fragalot: wish i could get to say the same about UPS
01:16 PM fragalot: just got a payment reminder letter for something I paid on the spot in the pickup-station
01:17 PM fragalot: after I asked them if the invoice I got a week after that was just for reference, or still an outstanding amount.. and the response I got then was that it was just for my records
01:17 PM fragalot: >.>
01:25 PM rmu: anybody know brother drilling tapping centers?
01:25 PM rmu: seems i got a TC-225
01:26 PM tumdedum_ is now known as tumdedum
02:19 PM fragalot: gloops: what a bargain! https://www.fine-tools.com/spiralnutbuendigfraeser.html
02:21 PM gloops: i cant afford to keep buying those
02:21 PM fragalot: you only need one though
02:22 PM fragalot: until that one wears out, that is
02:22 PM fragalot: :D
02:22 PM gloops: or hit a screw with it
02:22 PM fragalot: don't do that then
02:23 PM gloops: i do try to miss them lol
02:23 PM fragalot: i've had it once or twice where the nail had to have been in the tree long enough to grow over
02:24 PM fragalot: completely invisible until you run your brand new blade into it
02:24 PM gloops: with chainsaw? how did that work out
02:24 PM fragalot: on the panel saw
02:24 PM fragalot: after it had been slabbed & dried
02:25 PM gloops: oh yeah, i only use the blue handled sandvik saws, theyre good for a while, not too pricey if they get blunted or bent or stolen
02:26 PM fragalot: you mean for hand saws?
02:30 PM fragalot: fine. keep your secrets. :P
02:32 PM gloops: creaky server
02:35 PM gloops: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JOBLOT-18-X-SOLID-CARBIDE-MILLING-CUTTERS-3MM-8MM/323709110293?
02:35 PM gloops: europa? doesnt sound very good
02:35 PM fragalot: lol
02:36 PM gloops: ahh
02:36 PM gloops: pretty expensive cutters
02:36 PM fragalot: those blue boxes are the exact same ones used by banggood
02:37 PM fragalot: are ET going to have to rename themselves in april?
02:37 PM gloops: i thought that, think theres only one europa, probably 2mm
02:37 PM gloops: ET?
02:37 PM fragalot: Europa Tool
02:37 PM fragalot: UK company iirc
02:37 PM gloops: oh, yeah might be an issue
02:38 PM fragalot: lol they have 1 review on google maps by Bindu Tools
02:39 PM gloops: https://www.zoro.co.uk/shop/cutting-tools/carbide-end-mills---regular-series/3103231600-16mm-4fl-s-c-end-mill-tialn/p/ZT1038553P?utm_campaign=pla-Cutting+Tools+-+&utm_source=google&utm_medium=shopping-pla&utm_keyword=ZT1038553P&istCompanyId=6aa6787b-063e-4414-802d-129f235df603&istItemId=-mpilxappt&istBid=tztx&gclid=Cj0KCQiA5NPjBRDDARIsAM9X1GKN67vs5xUZUz9CyMbMCIuUG62-CzuvjCxwmefCTVJUF0HhUZKHaT4aArBuEALw_wcB
02:39 PM gloops: sht
02:40 PM fragalot: big carbide is expensive
02:41 PM fragalot: and i'm sure zoro isn't the cheapest place
02:42 PM gloops: i got a box full of new dolls house molding bits on ebay, 30 quid, should be here tommorrow, im all tooled up then haha
02:42 PM fragalot: you can never have too many different cutters
02:42 PM gloops: no, you never know what youll need
02:43 PM fragalot: one of the reasons I like my deckel SO clone
02:43 PM fragalot: s0*
02:43 PM fragalot: takes some getting used to the limitations of it, but it has proven useful quite a few times
02:44 PM gloops: tool making?
02:44 PM fragalot: (and has already paid itself back in restoring endmills alone, lol)
02:44 PM fragalot: yeah
02:45 PM gloops: well yeah, if cutters are a couple hundred quid each
02:46 PM fragalot: even if they're only £50 each
02:46 PM fragalot: or £20.. as a hobbyist, my time is free
02:46 PM fragalot: the cutters are not :D
02:46 PM fragalot: that said - i've decided that I want to build a gantry crane in my little shed
02:47 PM gloops: also the time element, 2 weeks for delivery on a new one, or grind the old back up today
02:47 PM fragalot: yea
02:47 PM fragalot: or a custom shape, say you need to restore something with a weird dovetail angle
02:47 PM gloops: crane for moving jobs about?
02:47 PM fragalot: or machines & accessoires
02:48 PM fragalot: due to space constraints, I put my sheet metal shears & bender tucked under my mill & pull it out onto my workbench if I need to use it
02:48 PM fragalot: but that damn thing weighs 75kg and that is getting lame fast
02:49 PM gloops: those little hydraulic engine lifts are handy - not so great when you have to start moving them around with a load on though
02:49 PM fragalot: my shed is too small for those
02:50 PM fragalot: so.. overhead crane it is
02:50 PM gloops: yeah, no need for a path around everything with a gantry running along the sides
02:50 PM fragalot: will need to build a full metal frame though as the walls & roof are far too flimsy to take any load
02:50 PM fragalot: but that's easy
02:52 PM gloops: hmm, an iron square all round the base? or maybe set some posts in each corner
02:52 PM fragalot: posts in each corner & halfway
02:52 PM fragalot: along the walls
02:52 PM fragalot: on top of that, U channels with a chain in it to keep the gantry parallel
02:52 PM fragalot: and an I-beam gantry riding in, or just below the U channel
02:54 PM gloops: what stops the two channels spragging apart, outwards?
02:55 PM fragalot: steel bars spanning across
02:58 PM gloops: well i dont suppose its going to be carry 10 tonnes anyway
02:58 PM gloops: carrying
02:59 PM fragalot: no, designing for up to 500kg
02:59 PM fragalot: realistically it won't see more than 250
03:02 PM gloops: and all this is for hobby work fragalot? or have you got a retirement plan in mind here lol?
03:03 PM fragalot: :-)
03:03 PM fragalot: mostly so I eventually CAN retire, rather than doing my back in lifting something I shouldn't be lifting
03:03 PM fragalot: already had a few mishaps recently, dislocating my shoulder & nearly bending my knee backwards
03:04 PM gloops: i wished id set the garage up with some decent metalwork machines, instead i just got a load of this and that when i saw it and not really set up for anything
03:04 PM fragalot: remember, always lift with a twisting jerky motion
03:05 PM gloops: knee backwards sounds a bit scary
03:05 PM fragalot: yea, not fun
03:05 PM fragalot: did that when getting that drill press, trying to lift the table out of the back of the car
03:06 PM fragalot: or the head, can't remember.. all i remember was having to have a sit down for a while
03:06 PM gloops: whoo you have to be careful with that if youre not someone who does lifting all the time
03:07 PM fragalot: even if, some things just aren't meant to be lifted from uncomfortable positions
03:07 PM fragalot: thus me investing in something so that doesn't happen anymore :P
03:08 PM gloops: i damaged a nerve in my back years ago, im usually careful but was persuaded by someone we could lift and move something that was stupid to attempt - he didnt get hurt lol
03:08 PM gloops: never been right properly since
03:08 PM fragalot: i've done my back in ~10yrs ago putting a bin bag out
03:08 PM fragalot: twisted the wrong way I think & just collapsed
03:09 PM gloops: it is that easy, i know someone who can hardly walk - sneezed while tying his shoelace, back done
03:09 PM fragalot: ouch
03:16 PM gloops: bit for your build CaptHindsight https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nikken-5-Axis-CNC-rotary-table/352478610499?
03:17 PM CaptHindsight: small one
03:18 PM CaptHindsight: anyone have a bandsaw big enough to rip a 4 ft (1.3m) forklift fork?
03:20 PM gloops: the question has to spring to mind...
03:20 PM gloops: why? lol
03:20 PM rmu: i could fax one to you
03:21 PM fragalot: couldn't you do that even with a little portaband if you were so inclined?
03:22 PM CaptHindsight: fragalot: need the blade to cut at a right angle from their typical position
03:23 PM gloops: stihl saw
03:23 PM CaptHindsight: rip cut https://youtu.be/T99ZeYOJwTM?t=30
03:24 PM CaptHindsight: only with 2" (50mm) angle
03:24 PM fragalot: CaptHindsight: I know, that is why the bands are often bent at an angle
03:26 PM CaptHindsight: the waterjet guys down the street can't handle the angle
03:26 PM rmu: plasma torch?
03:27 PM fragalot: zip cut blade & patience.
03:27 PM CaptHindsight: was trying to stay away from heat
03:27 PM CaptHindsight: so pay someone else to do it
03:27 PM fragalot: :D
03:27 PM fragalot: isn't that exactly what your customer is doing?
03:28 PM CaptHindsight: or modify a bandsaw
03:28 PM methods_: they could handle the angle they'd just have to put one side of the L down into the tank
03:28 PM methods_: assuming their tank is deep enough for that
03:28 PM CaptHindsight: think it's only ~2 ft deep
03:28 PM methods_: ah nm then
03:28 PM CaptHindsight: from memory
03:28 PM fragalot: I doubt they ahve a 1.3m deep tank
03:28 PM methods_: our tank is like 4'
03:28 PM CaptHindsight: send it to methods_
03:28 PM methods_: hah
03:29 PM methods_: you would do it on a bandsaw too if you kicked it up on an angle as you pass it thru
03:29 PM CaptHindsight: I need my waterjet backpack
03:29 PM methods_: would be a nightmare to hold
03:29 PM methods_: but you could do it
03:29 PM CaptHindsight: 7 ft of cut
03:29 PM methods_: yeah
03:30 PM CaptHindsight: so maybe 4 hrs
03:30 PM fragalot: get 2 forks, mill away half of eac
03:30 PM fragalot: h
03:30 PM methods_: probably easier just to make a new fork
03:30 PM CaptHindsight: 4 hrs x $400/hour
03:30 PM CaptHindsight: yeah new forks
03:31 PM CaptHindsight: angle grinder and 50 wheels
03:31 PM methods_: does not sound like fun
03:31 PM methods_: my forearms are wimpering
03:31 PM CaptHindsight: I know, not my idea of a good time
03:33 PM CaptHindsight: each fork is 400lbs (180Kg)
03:33 PM CaptHindsight: could get away with just cutting the horizontal portion of the forks
03:34 PM andypugh: Slitting saw and big CNC mill?
03:34 PM CaptHindsight: a good use for a horizontal
03:39 PM CaptHindsight: https://www.travers.com/slitting-saws/c/297714/#size=6%22
03:45 PM CaptHindsight: buy used smaller forks, modify to fit
03:46 PM gloops: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORKLIFT-TRUCK-FORK-TYNES-NEARLY-NEW/192831655433?
03:46 PM CaptHindsight: 6" dia slitting saw blade >$100
03:46 PM gloops: £110 the pair
03:46 PM CaptHindsight: heh, Google thinks I'm in the UK now
03:47 PM gloops: quite a few on ebay here
03:47 PM CaptHindsight: opening an UK ebay post always messes with Google
03:47 PM gloops: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pair-of-Jungheinrich-Forklift-Forks-100x40x800-mm/292804294499?
03:47 PM andypugh: CaptHindsight: Try eBay for slitting saws. (they are pretty easy to re-sharpen if required, even a setup in the mill can do it)
03:47 PM CaptHindsight: my searches will be UK centric for the next day unless I change ip addresses
03:48 PM CaptHindsight: forks on craigslist are $200
03:50 PM CaptHindsight: andypugh: yeah, I found an arbor that should hold a big blade for bt40 in my box of assorted mystery tooling
03:54 PM CaptHindsight: https://milwaukee.craigslist.org/hvo/d/new-berlin-class-3-made-in-germany-48/6825682372.html
03:54 PM CaptHindsight: made in Germany, all we had to say as kids to get parents to buy it
04:12 PM Jymmm: CaptHindsight: Yeah, I guess things have been breaking a lot lately
04:15 PM Tom_L: CaptHindsight what size slitting saw? i got a couple but the spindle motor won't handle em
04:15 PM CaptHindsight: Tom_L: was looking at 6" since the arbor is just over 1"
04:16 PM Tom_L: 6" would take quite a bit of hp to cut
04:16 PM CaptHindsight: but I'll likely just get different forks and sell the big ones
04:16 PM CaptHindsight: was just looking at options
04:17 PM Tom_L: didn't really read the backlog in it's entirety
04:18 PM CaptHindsight: forget the HP of the matsuura
04:18 PM Tom_L: i'm constantly reminded of it on my little mill
04:20 PM andypugh: Tom_L: I happily run 6” slitting saws on my horizontal mill. But then the 45rpm lowest speed is basically unstoppable…
04:20 PM CaptHindsight: tripped it on 40A 208V once when I got too greedy with a 4" facemill
04:21 PM Tom_L: andypugh i bet
04:22 PM Tom_L: the ones i have are fairly thin
04:23 PM CaptHindsight: likely 8-10HP spindle motor
04:23 PM Tom_L: iirc ~.040" and maybe 2.5" or so diameter
04:23 PM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/Cutter.jpg
04:23 PM Tom_L: similar in size with same hub
04:24 PM Tom_L: i think i've got a couple with maybe 5/8" center

04:38 PM Jymmm: Does anyone know how surgical tweezers / needle holders are numbered by chance?
04:40 PM Tom_L: no but: https://www.teleflex.com/en/usa/pdf/KMedic_Surgical_Instruments_101.pdf

04:49 PM CaptHindsight: Jymmm: DIY surgery?
04:49 PM Tom_L: i got soldering tweezers from DX
04:49 PM Jymmm: Yeah, those aren't what I'm looking for sadly. The ones' I'm trying to replace were like "SA6?"
04:50 PM * Tom_L didn't know Jymmm was a surgeon
04:50 PM andypugh: Maybe a sturgeon?
04:50 PM Jymmm: CaptHindsight: I just don't know if they are calling them tweezers, forceps, needle holders or what
04:51 PM Jymmm: andypugh: NAh, I don't care for sushi

10:17 PM pink_vampire: hope it will be as good soon
10:17 PM hazzy-m: BTW, nice tap holder :)
10:18 PM pink_vampire: hope you are joke
10:20 PM hazzy-m: haha, yes
10:21 PM pink_vampire: for 10-32 drill chuck is fine, for larger taps you need decent holder
10:23 PM hazzy-m: I do like using a plain old keyed chuck for small taps, since if you don't over tighten it can slip instead of breaking the tap
10:23 PM hazzy-m: yeah
10:24 PM pink_vampire: it is a keyed chuck
10:24 PM hazzy-m: I was not thinking once and put a tap in the albrecht and then proceed to tap with the lathe spindle on as usual, oops
10:25 PM Wolf__: Ive exploded a tap that way
10:25 PM pink_vampire: Abom show very easy way to make tap holder
10:28 PM hazzy-m: I'll have to check that out, its probably for a 4" - 4 UNC, lol
10:29 PM hazzy-m: Found it! https://youtu.be/y1UFxZ59UnI
10:29 PM pink_vampire: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1UFxZ59UnI
10:29 PM hazzy-m: nice, that is easy!
10:29 PM pink_vampire: yeah very easy
10:32 PM hazzy-m: I have a tapping head for the bridgeport, but it didn't come with collets and they aren't easy to find, so I've been making them as I need them, and their kinda a pain
10:33 PM Wolf__: for those really big taps https://i.imgur.com/FU1lq9A.jpg
10:33 PM hazzy-m: they use a cross drilled hole instead of Abom's slot for catch the end tap
10:33 PM hazzy-m: that is a nice tap stand!
10:33 PM pink_vampire: Wolf__: nice tap guide
10:34 PM Wolf__: nice for doing 2mm holes
10:39 PM * hazzy-m needs to make a whole set of these https://i.imgur.com/Xt9fHGm.png
10:39 PM Wolf__: I honestly never thought I would use the thing but it is really nice
10:39 PM pink_vampire: look fun
10:40 PM pink_vampire: now you have a good reason to get a swiss machine
10:41 PM hazzy-m: Haha, there you go!
10:41 PM hazzy-m: I have a old cheapo drill press with a foot switch I use for tapping sheet metal, don't what I'd do without it
10:43 PM hazzy-m: gn8
