08:09 AM XXCoder: hmm doesnt come with controller and vr
08:09 AM methods_: there are kits that do
08:23 AM jthornton: yea but you need two things, a place to fly and a place to land a plane
08:25 AM jthornton: and living in the city you typically have all but two of those requirement
08:26 AM jthornton: s
08:27 AM XXCoder: yeah lol
08:27 AM jthornton: that's why something like a tiny whoop is better if you have to fly in your yard or house

08:28 AM XXCoder: that or ones I have is really crap
08:29 AM jthornton: it could be either one, is it stable in a hover?
08:29 AM XXCoder: "newbie" mode which is auto stable
08:29 AM XXCoder: except it cant stay still in slight wind
08:30 AM jthornton: without GPS it can only keep the altitude stable
08:30 AM jthornton: you sill have to fly it
08:30 AM XXCoder: yeah though I cant make headway against slight wind too lol
08:31 AM jthornton: yea that sounds like a very cheap one, have you flown it indoors?
08:31 AM XXCoder: yeah it wasnt too bad though stil not quite stable. that is after flat surface calibration

08:34 AM XXCoder: i havent even tried camera attachment lol

10:58 AM JT-Shop2: on the 3/32" it still was not hot enough everywhere after 5 minutes at 350f
10:58 AM JT-Shop2: 1/8" should dry faster and heat up easier

12:40 PM _unreal_: kept telling me your going to in inherit one of these houses. now its Your going to buy this house off of me. so I can go down size.
12:40 PM _unreal_: I'd rather have the house in PR....

12:41 PM _unreal_: I talked to airbnb and they said I could likely make 1-2.5k a week doing that
12:41 PM _unreal_: and its right on a golf course upper left hand corner of PR

02:22 PM jymmmm: jumppacks are very good things =)
02:49 PM miss0r: Have any of you guys ever used(and experiences) issues with a drillDoctor?
02:49 PM taloot: hello guys i just recived my cards from mesa.net
02:59 PM JT-Shop: never messed with drillDoctor but once
03:00 PM SpeedEvil: I have contemplated one. All sane reviews seem to be it can greatly improve a blunt drill. Does it do a perfectly optimal job - no.
03:00 PM SpeedEvil: Does it do a better job than you can do on a grinder - for many people yes.
03:01 PM Tom_L: linuxcnc drill grinder
03:02 PM miss0r: SpeedEvil: For many people, yes :)
03:02 PM JT-Shop: my buddy has two and tried to give me one, I refused... not impressed with the finish at all
03:02 PM miss0r: I bought this one for my dad a few years back. He had me take it home to try'n figure out what was wrong with it, as the drills it sharpens now does not cut
03:02 PM jymmmm: People only give away tools they don't want
03:03 PM miss0r: I said; yeah, I need to sharpen some small drills anyway.
03:03 PM miss0r: It beats me on the grinder hands down, doing 4mm and lower drills
03:04 PM JT-Shop: I've given away tools that are perfect and work well, just could not figure out what to do with 12 sets of sockets
03:04 PM miss0r: I just figured out he had managed to tighten the knob all the way down - the knob that determins the relief angle. It was basically negative
03:05 PM miss0r: I just sharpened a few drills with it, and they eat nicely through mild steel now, Issue solved - now to look at my 'needs a new grind'-box
03:05 PM jymmmm: JT-Shop Yeah, but you might give away that semi so so tool that cost $60 and don't anyone touch that DAMN GOOD $20 tool =)
03:06 PM miss0r: jymmmm: Moar money ? moar better... :
03:06 PM _unreal_: fuck me
03:06 PM jymmmm: miss0r So people believe, eh
03:06 PM miss0r: hehe yeah
03:06 PM _unreal_: the closet is now more or less "clean ish"
03:07 PM _unreal_: just finished tossing all 200 lbs of mags. soaked with dirt and water
03:07 PM _unreal_: looks like the next project is going to be pulling the sheet rock later this week
03:08 PM _unreal_: the lower molding is just falling off everywhere that it was weat
03:08 PM _unreal_: wet
03:08 PM _unreal_: and loads of dirt behind it
03:55 PM jymmmm: Hmmm, IDK... It says up to 6.5L (mines 4.6L) and 600A (CCA???), but when I tried starting my car normally with a clamp on ampmeter rated at 600A max, it OL it. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D42TYFC/
03:56 PM jymmmm: 600 china amps???
03:56 PM SpeedEvil: OLd the meter?
03:57 PM jymmmm: OL = OverLoad, basically > 600A MAX
03:58 PM jymmmm: Klein CL800 clamp on ampmeter
03:59 PM SpeedEvil: Then you want one with >600A CCA at least - I'm not sure what the issue is
03:59 PM SpeedEvil: OR are you saying it's great.
04:00 PM jymmmm: SpeedEvil: They are saying that jumppack will work on a bigger engine than I have but it's only rated at 600A
04:00 PM SpeedEvil: ah
04:00 PM jymmmm: I'm assuming the 600A is CCA
04:01 PM SpeedEvil: get a bigger one then.
04:01 PM SpeedEvil: In general, if stuff is ambiguous, take the worst interpretation.
04:01 PM SpeedEvil: Also - if >600A for 10ms, it may not matter
04:02 PM jymmmm: Well, at least 2 seconds, maybe 5 seconds
04:06 PM Deejay: gn8
04:18 PM _unreal_: just did a deep bleach mopping of the corner
04:18 PM _unreal_: at least its not STICKING any more
04:18 PM _unreal_: omg... was reeking of FART after really digging into all the mold shit
04:18 PM _unreal_: balaaa

06:34 PM jthornton: can't see in goggles as I need reading glasses
06:34 PM jthornton: even if I could see still not interested in that
06:34 PM XXCoder: makes sense. yeah im never any good on "twitchy" stuff
06:35 PM jthornton: I used to have a plane we called the trike-it, me and a buddy designed it and it would almost stop in mid air and fly very slow with full control
06:36 PM jthornton: it had huge control surfaces
06:36 PM jthornton: time to cook
06:37 PM XXCoder: yummy
06:37 PM XXCoder: nice. there was old planes that probably can fly slower than normnal walking speed, at right wind headway
06:45 PM XXCoder: hmm who asked about hardening white powder?
06:45 PM XXCoder: anyway its boric acid apparently
07:03 PM jymmmm: XXCoder: hardening poweder? for ???

07:41 PM jymmmm: XXCoder: textures here... https://www.patreon.com/ultimateimmersion
07:42 PM XXCoder: ya though not playing mc anymore
07:42 PM jymmmm: k
07:42 PM XXCoder: I explored in minetest it was interesting
07:43 PM XXCoder: very deep world lol
07:43 PM XXCoder: 64x64x64k map
07:43 PM skunkworks: http://electronicsam.com/images/greenmachine/IMG_20191020_153802.jpg
07:43 PM skunkworks: Left one was just cut.. The right one was done when i first got the Green machine
07:44 PM XXCoder: making progress!
07:45 PM skunkworks: 2 of the stepper motors where assembled wronge (thrust bearings installed backwards..)
07:45 PM XXCoder: geez
07:46 PM skunkworks: so Z had a excesive amount of backlash - that when you tried to tighten the stepper pre-load would get worse.. (until we figured it out)
07:47 PM skunkworks: you can see the wide and narrow widths depending on the direction of cut...
07:47 PM skunkworks: http://electronicsam.com/images/greenmachine/IMG_20191020_154338.jpg
07:47 PM skunkworks: compared to http://electronicsam.com/images/greenmachine/IMG_20191020_154548.jpg
07:58 PM taloot: guys i connect my 7i92M.. and set the ip
07:58 PM taloot: now what?
07:58 PM taloot: Pnconfig?
07:58 PM taloot: or do i have to flash Bit file
07:59 PM taloot: i want it to be for breakoutboard like c11
08:00 PM taloot: whats the diffrent between bit and bin file
08:02 PM _unreal_: I am sooo time and I have so much stuff to move still
08:02 PM _unreal_: I am soo tired
08:02 PM _unreal_: waiting for the floor to dry
08:05 PM _unreal_: skunkworks, look what I found in my room https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Ufbk32KWIoS6D_UsMdH88Fdldo_OAWY9
08:06 PM XXCoder: jeez
08:06 PM _unreal_: just as bad under the bed
08:06 PM _unreal_: I only discovered it last night
08:07 PM _unreal_: stepped in some water between the tiles I'm like WTF
08:07 PM XXCoder: houses heh
08:07 PM XXCoder: everyone loves water... till they buya house
08:07 PM _unreal_: it was caused by 2 tings
08:08 PM _unreal_: the gutters had been removed by the roofers in early spring. this house is one of my fathers 3 houses
08:08 PM _unreal_: btw
08:09 PM _unreal_: he didnt bother to replace then and wouldnt let me do it.. till we got water in the house.... because it filled the planter
08:09 PM _unreal_: then he did a SHIT job installing them
08:09 PM _unreal_: come to find out the seams were leaking baddly
08:09 PM _unreal_: INTO the flower pot again
08:09 PM XXCoder: jeez
08:10 PM _unreal_: then to top it all off the AC condensation line empties into the fucking flower pot. btw the flower pot basin is part of the house
08:10 PM _unreal_: its all cement
08:10 PM _unreal_: 2' deep with dirt no drains, and 1' 10" of water...
08:11 PM XXCoder: :(
08:11 PM _unreal_: late last night I did a fix to redirect the @#$%!@#$% drain
08:11 PM XXCoder: that'd wick water inside indeed
08:11 PM _unreal_: XXCoder, even worse
08:11 PM XXCoder: more so if theres micrpocracks or larger cracks
08:11 PM _unreal_: the box you see in the photo
08:11 PM XXCoder: yeah pc magazines one?
08:12 PM _unreal_: YES
08:12 PM _unreal_: cpu, pcgames, pcgamer, gamers insider, all kinds of old nintendo stuff
08:12 PM XXCoder: :(
08:12 PM _unreal_: something like 300+
08:13 PM _unreal_: last thing I ever expected
08:14 PM XXCoder: similiar happened to me 10 years ago
08:14 PM XXCoder: its why my closet stuff is all on plastic shelves
08:14 PM _unreal_: I'm cram packed in sadly :(
08:15 PM XXCoder: is those mold just black or greenish black?
08:15 PM _unreal_: some of everything
08:15 PM _unreal_: and mud
08:15 PM XXCoder: ehh that may be deadly black mold
08:15 PM _unreal_: I just bleached everything
08:15 PM XXCoder: normal mold that'd be enough
08:16 PM _unreal_: well I've been living in it for.... likely 6 months now
08:16 PM XXCoder: get true hepa filter to get rid of pollen
08:16 PM _unreal_: maybe I've been getting over dosed on penicillin. have not been sick in some time :)
08:17 PM XXCoder: its not instant kill, its slow progressive problems
08:17 PM _unreal_: I'm not allergic to much of anything at all
08:17 PM XXCoder: so you really need to clean air out with true hepa and bleach those again
08:17 PM _unreal_: dust mites
08:17 PM _unreal_: forced air system with hepa filter system
08:18 PM _unreal_: remember I'm in the south..... we dont really have "heating"
08:18 PM XXCoder: heating? when did I say heating?
08:18 PM _unreal_: just AC with heater coils in them
08:19 PM XXCoder: your strong filter system is probably why youre fine. clean it some out
08:19 PM XXCoder: maybe replace filter on your air system
08:19 PM XXCoder: 6 months is pretty good anyway
08:19 PM _unreal_: dont have a choice. system wont run if it detects the air flow is too low
08:20 PM _unreal_: I had a lot of other plans
08:20 PM _unreal_: for this weekend
08:20 PM _unreal_: My father is around for once so we took down all the storm shutters. err last of them
08:21 PM _unreal_: and to day I got to be fucked with this friggen issue
08:21 PM _unreal_: photo doesnt show it but I had to toss out expensive 7.1 suround speakers
08:21 PM _unreal_: matched set
08:21 PM _unreal_: :(
08:21 PM XXCoder: :(
08:21 PM _unreal_: all kinds of pc games I'm going to have to go and check
08:21 PM _unreal_: and dry
08:22 PM _unreal_: the cd's
08:22 PM _unreal_: :S
08:22 PM _unreal_: lot of them were burned
08:22 PM _unreal_: what pissis me off is there was a considerable amount of water on my daughters side to..... I know I KNOW she saw it but never said anything to me
08:23 PM _unreal_: could have addressed this likely months ago
08:23 PM _unreal_: My original goal for this weekend was to FINALLY get lcnc up and running on the freaking computer
08:23 PM _unreal_: YET AGAIN cant touch
08:23 PM _unreal_: side tracked
08:24 PM _unreal_: well time to go take a piss and start moving heavy shit again
08:24 PM _unreal_: :(
08:24 PM XXCoder: what age your kid is>?
08:24 PM _unreal_: 10
08:24 PM XXCoder: might not think of it as unusual
08:24 PM _unreal_: o,O
08:24 PM _unreal_: under her desk
08:24 PM XXCoder: or simply did not make note of it
08:25 PM _unreal_: when I found the water in my room I checked her room and there was lots of moldy areas in her room just like mine
08:26 PM _unreal_: and I had a cardboard sheet down cut like one of those matts to go under wheeled chairs at a desk
08:26 PM _unreal_: the entire area under the desk of hers was soaked
08:26 PM _unreal_: there is NO WAY she didnt know about it
08:27 PM _unreal_: I cant be mad at her because its not something you would expect... but I WOULD expect her to at least have said hay dad my floor is wet WHY.....
08:27 PM XXCoder: yeah. not much you can do but just deal with it
08:30 PM _unreal_: OMG.... this desktop is driving me nutty..... its sooo slow.... using fusion
08:37 PM _unreal_: shy on ram
09:03 PM norias: hmm
09:03 PM norias: by the looks of it, there's not a ton of activity in the free software CAM world
09:05 PM Tom_L: no not alot
09:05 PM jymmmm: FreeCad has CAM in it
09:06 PM XXCoder: its been progressing slowly. i think stalled again?
09:15 PM Tom_L: XXCoder, they get your new cnc up yet?
09:17 PM XXCoder: not mine heh
09:17 PM Tom_L: at work
09:17 PM XXCoder: dunno havent been there since wed
09:17 PM XXCoder: its setup but 2 problems lol
09:21 PM jymmmm: XXCoder: Problem 1) Oper, Problem 2) ator.
09:21 PM XXCoder: 1) spindle no go. 2) 4th no go
09:21 PM jymmmm: XXCoder: See Above =)
09:21 PM XXCoder: lolo
09:22 PM jymmmm: and on that note, gnight folks =)
09:24 PM norias: not sure how i feel about freecad
09:24 PM Connor: Anyone have a list of good mobo's for linuxcnc now? Need one with onboard vga, and dual nic's. Using PREEMPT-RT in conjunction with 7i76e
09:24 PM norias: but it seems like the only game in town
09:25 PM Connor: The supermicro mobo didn't play nice with the mesa card.
09:37 PM skunkworks: I had an older gigabit motherboard.. Don't know if you can get them still (dual nic)
09:38 PM skunkworks: have to look it up
09:41 PM skunkworks: Connor: like https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-J1900N-D3V-rev-1x#ov
09:42 PM skunkworks: that I think is running the matsuura..
09:43 PM skunkworks: and it has a printer port header...
09:43 PM skunkworks: ;)
10:01 PM _unreal_: Tom_L, I was going to say the same thing. FREE CAM? huh?
10:02 PM _unreal_: norias, My opinion about free cad is way over bloated
10:02 PM _unreal_: the learning curve is patheticly high
10:02 PM norias: free cam?
10:03 PM norias: where?
10:03 PM _unreal_: I'm not saying it doesnt work and its bad I'm just saying steep
10:03 PM _unreal_: freecad
10:03 PM _unreal_: oh free cam responding tom
10:03 PM norias: i think i only played with freecad once
10:03 PM _unreal_: norias, I'd suggest designspark
10:03 PM norias: i'm a solidworks user, mostly
10:03 PM _unreal_: then your all set :)
10:04 PM _unreal_: I use a multitude of softwares depending on what I'm doing
10:04 PM norias: yeah, i'm screwing with opencascade
10:04 PM _unreal_: norias, I'd suggest designspark
10:04 PM norias: maybe to suck in step files and do some sort of analysis, i dunno
10:04 PM _unreal_: ?
10:05 PM _unreal_: norias, I've designed this with designspark https://drive.google.com/open?id=1fNUz8yQsjeJA0Uxd1_SwFodAyful3OVN
10:05 PM norias: i was thinking like a machinability analysis based on a set of heuristics
10:05 PM _unreal_: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1QZydBdrzgvEeSeUNslRsTQ7cvXA6og3l
10:05 PM norias: cool, nice work
10:06 PM _unreal_: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Jhdu2UXy-NDLAabpD3d6cB-wlT9qazFm
10:07 PM _unreal_: https://drive.google.com/open?id=109L7sMLiNTDbxkslCgYZTqCS7IMOIMbI
10:07 PM _unreal_: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1T5uEA2JTC1gaECmxKgZB1sSnysSH-vCO
10:07 PM _unreal_: That will give you an idea of the power of designspark
10:07 PM _unreal_: its VERY fast
10:08 PM _unreal_: that anchor holder took me an hour to design. the dove tail took me 70% of the time
10:08 PM _unreal_: anchor holder https://drive.google.com/open?id=1SmIvfuGkawcTfhEzMFGyFZLSWMvtQXfI
10:09 PM _unreal_: norias, ?
10:09 PM norias: cool.
10:10 PM norias: i'l have to play with it some time
10:10 PM norias: what kernel are they using?
10:10 PM _unreal_: DS is a direct modeling software
10:10 PM _unreal_: ?
10:11 PM norias: hmm. can it save step214?
10:11 PM _unreal_: let me check
10:15 PM _unreal_: and my computer is having a shit fit
10:15 PM _unreal_: I cant find ram anywheres. I came across some the right kind for my desktop only to descover its comming from china
10:17 PM _unreal_: .caml .stl .skp .pdf .vdb .obj .dxf .amf and its own format .rsdoc
10:17 PM _unreal_: .caml=.xaml
10:18 PM _unreal_: as to the ram... and of all things I ordered from newegg
10:19 PM _unreal_: so no I dont see step214 but fusion360 cam
10:19 PM _unreal_: can
10:19 PM norias: that sucks
10:20 PM _unreal_: the learning curve is not very steep though
10:20 PM _unreal_: at all
10:21 PM _unreal_: I've done some time test's my self aganced other people to draw items and I've found DS is much faster.
10:21 PM norias: yeah, but i don't see any useful file formats in there
10:21 PM _unreal_: but it does not have any real CAM features BUT on the other hand it does have a 3dprinter CAM ablity
10:22 PM _unreal_: dxf
10:22 PM _unreal_: and stl
10:22 PM norias: i can't do anything with those
10:23 PM _unreal_: ?
10:23 PM norias: so, you can model stuff, but you can't share it with anyone
10:23 PM norias: can you at least make blueprints?
10:23 PM _unreal_: sure I can
10:24 PM _unreal_: STL skp
10:24 PM _unreal_: dxf files
10:24 PM _unreal_: etc...
10:24 PM _unreal_: obj files
10:24 PM norias: does it have dimensioning and tolerancing?
10:25 PM _unreal_: yes
10:25 PM _unreal_: https://drive.google.com/open?id=17Y1DFDBTftuhQYjT_0FDPKLmE9cCQxrS
10:26 PM _unreal_: I use different software for different things
10:26 PM _unreal_: I mainly use carbide create
10:26 PM _unreal_: but it lacks some much needed features, and it has a lot of software glitches
10:27 PM _unreal_: but its the most user friendly software outthere for limited CAD and good CAM
10:27 PM norias: yeah, i dunno
10:27 PM _unreal_: I own ESTLcam
10:27 PM norias: i'm not seeing this as useful software for me
10:27 PM norias: but thanks for sharing it
10:27 PM _unreal_: what do you do
10:27 PM norias: machine prototypes, mostly
10:27 PM _unreal_: of?
10:27 PM norias: whatever people pay me to
10:27 PM _unreal_: are we talking foam,
10:27 PM _unreal_: metal
10:28 PM norias: usually aluminum
10:28 PM norias: sometimes steel
10:28 PM _unreal_: 2d milling?
10:28 PM norias: occassionally titanium
10:28 PM norias: i think you'd call it more 2.5
10:28 PM _unreal_: or do you get into 3d miling
10:28 PM norias: sometimes minor 3d
10:28 PM norias: i usually just do the 3d bits by hand
10:29 PM _unreal_: can you view NC file?
10:29 PM _unreal_: files
10:29 PM norias: i'm ... not sure what you are asking
10:29 PM norias: is that a standard file format of some sort?
10:29 PM _unreal_: ok...
10:29 PM norias: you mean g-code files?
10:30 PM _unreal_: its WAYYYY older then STEP
10:30 PM _unreal_: yes
10:30 PM _unreal_: gcode nc files
10:30 PM norias: oh, sure, i have a text editor
10:30 PM _unreal_: are you running linux?
10:30 PM norias: not right now
10:30 PM _unreal_: ehhhh..... hum
10:30 PM norias: why?
10:30 PM norias: (solidworks)
10:30 PM _unreal_: can you view a gcode as in preview
10:31 PM norias: ...
10:31 PM norias: it's a text file
10:31 PM norias: there's no graphical / geometry data in there
10:32 PM _unreal_: camotics is my fave viewer
10:33 PM norias: ok
10:33 PM _unreal_: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6nq-keKP2gc
10:33 PM _unreal_: look at that
10:33 PM XXCoder: did they ever fix backwards play bug
10:33 PM _unreal_: camotics is just one software that can do previewing of gocde files
10:34 PM _unreal_: ?
10:34 PM _unreal_: no idea
10:34 PM _unreal_: never heard of it
10:34 PM XXCoder: heh when it loads gcode it starts at end and plau backwards
10:34 PM norias: lol
10:34 PM Wolf__: preview gcode? just run the shit
10:34 PM norias: or read it
10:35 PM XXCoder: norias: its great for seeing what shape is result of running it
10:35 PM norias: M30 - stop tape, rewind
10:35 PM norias: maybe that's the problem
10:35 PM _unreal_: norias, https://drive.google.com/open?id=10MLBQXee-33djBb4kWd6c-Wew7gYVnKX good luck reading that
10:35 PM XXCoder: if its preview wjhat program will do rather than what it will look like, I just use linuxcnc
10:35 PM norias: they are reading while the tape is going backwards
10:35 PM Wolf__: yeah, that too, I usually look over it quickly to check feed/speed
10:36 PM norias: _unreal_- that's also not written by hand, so your cam should be doing the "preview"
10:37 PM _unreal_: right
10:37 PM _unreal_: thats massive 3D gcode files
10:37 PM norias: so, why would i need a different software
10:37 PM norias: if cam already does the same thing?
10:37 PM _unreal_: ? you asked
10:38 PM XXCoder: its not quite same norias.
10:38 PM _unreal_: heh
10:38 PM XXCoder: cambotics you can see the result of program
10:38 PM XXCoder: simulated result anyway
10:38 PM norias: which is what CAM does
10:38 PM norias: any reasonably recent one
10:38 PM XXCoder: "reasonable decent" = money
10:38 PM * _unreal_ remembers the days of turbocnc
10:39 PM _unreal_: and his 486 dx50mhz laptop driving his first cnc machine
10:39 PM _unreal_: ahhh.. the wonder years
10:43 PM _unreal_: norias, do you use linuxcnc?
10:43 PM XXCoder: I didnt know cnc machine was a concept till I guess 8 years ago
10:43 PM XXCoder: no, 7
10:43 PM _unreal_: huh?
10:44 PM _unreal_: I'm not sure I know what you mean
10:44 PM XXCoder: I found out about it then later joined this channel
10:44 PM _unreal_: I built my first cnc machine 20 years ago
10:44 PM XXCoder: so I could slowly build my own crappy cnc machine to build better one. way did THAT plan get derailed
10:44 PM XXCoder: *boy did
10:45 PM * _unreal_ gets popcorn, hear comes back story :)
10:45 PM XXCoder: it was extremely ironic I got cnc machinist job
10:46 PM flyback: <flyback> https://www.goldmine-elec-products.com/
10:46 PM flyback: <flyback> front page for all you iot people here
10:46 PM flyback: <flyback> 6 watts solar $10
10:47 PM XXCoder: _unreal_: I still have parts of cnc machine I ended up never using. dunno what to do with em lol
10:52 PM _unreal_: hum
10:53 PM XXCoder: set of SBR rails, and set of ballscrews
10:57 PM _unreal_: hum
10:57 PM _unreal_: what size?
10:58 PM XXCoder: uhh forgot I would say 250mm or so
10:58 PM _unreal_: !
10:58 PM XXCoder: or 300mm?
10:58 PM _unreal_: that size or a big longer I might be interested
10:59 PM _unreal_: bit
10:59 PM XXCoder: lets see if link still works lol
10:59 PM _unreal_: I need to build a new home cnc. my current one works great BUT its small
10:59 PM _unreal_: STRONG as hell but small
10:59 PM XXCoder: 300mm 600mm 600mm ballscrews
11:00 PM _unreal_: ! interesting
11:00 PM XXCoder: sbr 12 16 20 600mm
11:00 PM XXCoder: 300mm on small sbr12
11:00 PM XXCoder: surpised link still works
11:00 PM XXCoder: $236 and $117
11:01 PM _unreal_: original price
11:01 PM SpeedEvil is now known as Guest19139
11:01 PM XXCoder: dunno its been few years its good chance they increased price since lol
11:01 PM _unreal_: not even hardly
11:01 PM _unreal_: if anything gone down
11:02 PM _unreal_: god, there giving rails and ball screws away now. ebay bangood aliexpress etc....
11:03 PM XXCoder: heh i bet quality have gone down too
11:03 PM _unreal_: I only have 2 extrusion sesctions :( but its enough to make the two major standoffs
11:03 PM _unreal_: no argument there
11:05 PM XXCoder: https://www.ebay.com/itm/3-ballscrews-RM1605-300-600-600mm-3-nuts-BK-BF12-/250451252435
11:05 PM XXCoder: https://www.ebay.com/itm/250729742630
11:10 PM BitEvil is now known as SpeedEvil
11:16 PM _unreal_: well have to do some yacking. I dont know if they are the size I need
11:17 PM XXCoder: heh sbrs was only cheaper option back then
11:17 PM _unreal_: ya
11:17 PM XXCoder: block ones finally got cheap by now
11:17 PM _unreal_: block are still crazy expenive compaired to sbr
11:18 PM _unreal_: there just make the bed
11:18 PM _unreal_: good lord
11:18 PM _unreal_: I have so much work todo tomorrow when I get home
11:18 PM _unreal_: this leak really bleeped my weekend
11:18 PM _unreal_: I had planned to finish my daughters little cnc machine. NOPE
11:18 PM _unreal_: side tracked again
11:19 PM XXCoder: yeah
11:19 PM _unreal_: I didnt even get to take her to the playground or anything
11:20 PM XXCoder: you had to kill water and mold very dead in a hurry
11:20 PM _unreal_: yep
11:20 PM XXCoder: are you drying rooms out now?
11:20 PM _unreal_: they are dry
11:20 PM XXCoder: \I mean humidity and such
11:20 PM _unreal_: south florida
11:20 PM _unreal_: hehe
11:20 PM _unreal_: humidity is a thing
11:21 PM XXCoder: lol
11:21 PM _unreal_: the AC is the closest to a dehumifyer we have
11:21 PM _unreal_: speaking of its like 81F outside
11:22 PM _unreal_: sorry 82
11:22 PM _unreal_: https://www.google.com/search?q=boca+raton+temperature&oq=boca+raton+temp&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0l5.323961j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
11:22 PM _unreal_: oh goody tomrrows highs in the 90's
11:22 PM XXCoder: heavy rain here for while, and humidity in my room is 46f
11:22 PM XXCoder: 46%*
11:23 PM _unreal_: the middle of winter 56F would be low
11:23 PM _unreal_: here
11:23 PM _unreal_: it can freeze but your talking once every 20 years
11:24 PM _unreal_: winter here is like summer for the rest of the US
11:24 PM _unreal_: 60's overnights 70's for the day
11:24 PM XXCoder: lol
11:24 PM _unreal_: key west is really nice
11:25 PM _unreal_: its always 84F
11:25 PM XXCoder: and summer is summer^2 for rest of usa
