09:24 AM skunkworks: hello?
09:32 AM JT-Cave: yo
09:34 AM unterhaus_: there are a batch of DRO readouts for $50
09:35 AM unterhaus_: desperately need more information about that before pulling the trigger
09:39 AM JT-Cave: where?
09:43 AM unterhaus_: https://www.ebay.com/itm/2-3-Axis-DRO-Digital-Readout-150-1000MM-Linear-Scale-for-Milling-High-Accuracy-/133269680987?var=&hash=item1f077df35b
09:43 AM unterhaus_: if you search for dro readout you get tons of these
09:46 AM miss0r: I have one that looks like that on my lathe. that one is realy spot on
09:49 AM rs[m]: miss0r: zfs or btrfs have snapshots natively, lvm can provide snapshots for everything. strategy would be snapshot, backup the snapshot, delete snapshot
09:50 AM rs[m]: miss0r: with something like borg backup you can even backup whole vm images efficiently
09:50 AM miss0r: I'll have to look into that. For the time being I made the script work, without killing the VM :)
09:51 AM unterhaus_: I want a lathe version. I have an acu-rite, but it's 2 axis mill and doesn't convert
09:51 AM miss0r: and the other backup stradegy will have to wait, as I still have to configure 5 workstations to run on a 2019domain server I have yet to configure. and I have to deploy it tomorrow morning ;)
09:52 AM miss0r: (and now it is dinner time with the family...) yeah its gonna be another late one :D
09:52 AM miss0r: I have to run, see you around
09:52 AM unterhaus_: that listing shows 4 displays, I guess it's a crap shoot which one you get
09:53 AM rs[m]: see you
09:54 AM unterhaus_: I see, you can select
09:54 AM unterhaus_: price for the readout is $75
10:07 AM JT-Shop: that looks similar to the shumatech that I built
10:08 AM JT-Shop: still have the lathe one somewhere
10:10 AM unterhaus_: disadvantage is I have differential scales
10:17 AM unterhaus_: is it harder to multiply by 2 or rewire the scales? It's a connundrum
10:19 AM Tom_L: rewire. you'll get tired of that
10:25 AM unterhaus_: I wonder if you can safely ground the differential outputs
10:27 AM unterhaus_: acurite could use different model numbers than 100 and 200
10:29 AM unterhaus_: they have been using those numbers for over 20 years for wildly different dro readout
10:30 AM likevinyl is now known as Guest62570
10:31 AM unterhaus_: people are selling acurite manuals on ebay that you can download
10:33 AM Tom_L: why buy if you can get them free?
10:34 AM unterhaus_: it would be more of a pain for me to keep track of it for years while listing it on ebay
10:34 AM unterhaus_: I would recycle
10:34 AM unterhaus_: there is an acurite lathe dro readout on ebay for $136 obo
10:42 AM unterhaus_: wish I had some shipping brackets for my scales, i would put them on ebay
10:44 AM unterhaus_: I find it hard to believe that display is new
10:48 AM unterhaus_: one of the dro readout ebay listings had a video where someone just moved the read head by hand at high speed.
10:48 AM unterhaus_: I'm impressed it worked the second time
10:50 AM Agrubbs: Hi from Germany
10:51 AM unterhaus_: hi
10:51 AM Agrubbs: I am Directed here to ask on Mesa
10:51 AM unterhaus_: works best to ask, never know
10:52 AM Agrubbs: is there somone of this Company online here
10:52 AM Agrubbs: unterhaus_, sounds German
10:53 AM pcw_home: Yes
10:53 AM Agrubbs: pcw_home, where is he from in Germany
10:54 AM Tom_L: Agrubbs, you have a mesa question?
10:55 AM Agrubbs: Not that Question on the Elektronic
10:55 AM unterhaus_: you want to know where to buy mesa cards?
10:55 AM Agrubbs: Im a new Member of the Metall Education
10:56 AM Agrubbs: and there is a 7i76e send to USA in March 2020 since it is missing
10:57 AM Agrubbs: No Number of repair or some return Mail to School
10:57 AM Agrubbs: some other People told me to Ask here
10:58 AM Agrubbs: as 28th Jan 2021 nears and the mashine is needed then
10:58 AM gloops: cant see that turning up now
10:59 AM Agrubbs: Mr gloops Lathe in Build ?
10:59 AM robotustra: morning
11:00 AM Agrubbs: Late evening Here in Europa
11:00 AM gloops: i mean March is too long, part not coming - kaputen
11:01 AM Agrubbs: Bad
11:01 AM robotustra: how is right "kaput" or "kaputen"
11:02 AM pcw_home: We can send a replacement card if return shipping is provided (the card was unrepairable)
11:02 AM robotustra: or it depends?
11:02 AM Agrubbs: Tom_L, is there now on the new System a switch RTCP Kinetics present
11:03 AM Agrubbs: pcw_home, that woudt be good
11:03 AM Agrubbs: pcw_home, are yoiu the MESA -Guy- here
11:03 AM pcw_home: Yeah
11:04 AM Agrubbs: pcw_home, i need a number of Repair and what will it cost
11:05 AM Agrubbs: pcw_home, I see here on the Send from Germany to You 7USD shipment
11:06 AM Tom_L: it got partway there for $7
11:08 AM Agrubbs: Tom_L, my translation strikes on Partway
11:08 AM Agrubbs: Woodworker her maily laserengrave
11:08 AM unterhaus_: partway == not all the way
11:09 AM Agrubbs: cand be as it has a return answer from the Worker within 42 Days it arrive
11:10 AM Agrubbs: it has arrived
11:10 AM Tom_L: unterhaus_, i guess it did, pcw said it was junk
11:10 AM unterhaus_: okey
11:10 AM unterhaus_: I bought that lathe display, now I guess I should put my mill display up on ebay
11:11 AM Agrubbs: Tom_L, the CNC CAM Powermill got the M128/M127 switch
11:11 AM Agrubbs: the CNC build got 2 Setups RTCP or standard
11:12 AM Agrubbs: but no switch to change Kinetics
11:12 AM Tom_L: no idea
11:12 AM Agrubbs: Tom_L, i see there is Work on C level as of the Forum search
11:13 AM unterhaus_: m codes aren't standard, is that a linuxcnc code?
11:14 AM Agrubbs: Is it Posible Here to connect pcw privat i am on Hexchat anyone Knows
11:14 AM Tom_L: Mcodes above 100 are user defined
11:14 AM Agrubbs: unterhaus_, its the Worl code for Maho,Heidenhain,Hermle,Mazak
11:14 AM Agrubbs: World
11:15 AM Tom_L: but not linuxcnc
11:15 AM unterhaus_: yes, that isn't implemented in lcnc, those would be user defined codes
11:15 AM Agrubbs: i see
11:15 AM Tom_L: you can write one
11:16 AM Agrubbs: it is there in the Forum but how to implement
11:16 AM Tom_L: http://linuxcnc.org/docs/2.8/html/gcode/m-code.html#mcode:m100-m199
11:16 AM Agrubbs: need to wait for Covid ending to get a IT out of Homeoffice
11:18 AM pcw_home: <Agrubbs> can you send a email to Mesa requesting an RMA number and providing shipping information?
11:20 AM Agrubbs: pcw_home, Mesa got almost 3Mail Adress what shoudt we use
11:21 AM Agrubbs: Tom_L, https://forum.linuxcnc.org/10-advanced-configuration/31813-tcp-5-axis-kinematics
11:24 AM robotustra: Agrubbs, do you think it will finish soon?
11:25 AM Tom_L: Agrubbs, if you want 2 different modes, you would be better off running 2 separate config files
11:25 AM Agrubbs: robotustra, I cand't understand this Meaning
11:25 AM Tom_L: Agrubbs, he meant when will covid end
11:25 AM Agrubbs: Tom_L, thats what the Mashine is setup
11:26 AM robotustra: Agrubbs, I mean covid
11:26 AM Tom_L: Agrubbs, if you want 2 different modes, you would be better off running 2 separate config files
11:27 AM Tom_L: i'm not sure that would switch modes without restarting linuxcnc. i may be mistaken
11:27 AM Agrubbs: Tom_L, but the CAM can do both and 2D chiping is faster then RTCP
11:27 AM robotustra: I think covid will last at least 3-6 month more
11:27 AM Agrubbs: robotustra, it will stay forever like HIV
11:28 AM Agrubbs: pcw_home, Preferd mail adress Please
11:29 AM Agrubbs: sales@mesanet.com - tech@mesanet.com - accounting@mesanet.com
11:29 AM Tom_L: Agrubbs, any will do
11:29 AM Tom_L: he's the head worker, the wife is the boss as usual
11:30 AM Agrubbs: Like Here
11:30 AM Agrubbs: "Why did you use always the Expensive Wood"
11:30 AM Agrubbs: Homedepo got yheep one
11:31 AM robotustra: Young dog asks an old dog: " Why do we wear muzzles all the time but humans started to wear them only recently?" Old dog reply: "But we also were in space earlier than humans..."
11:31 AM Agrubbs: I like to Thank you all here for the Infos
11:32 AM Agrubbs: I think im not the last time Here
11:32 AM Agrubbs: Starting from Feb21 if so
11:32 AM Tom_L: there are other germans here
11:32 AM Tom_L: just not at the moment
11:33 AM Agrubbs: there are so many Mashines on Linuxcnc old 10.04 2.5.4 Version
11:33 AM Tom_L: 2.5 is pretty old
11:33 AM robotustra: alll germans are in their basment in the Sunday evenings
11:33 AM Agrubbs: all need to Update some Time
11:33 AM Tom_L: the config files have changed some since then
11:33 AM Tom_L: twice that i can think of for sure
11:34 AM Agrubbs: I Am getting ready for tomorrows Live Mask School Event
11:34 AM Agrubbs: Tom_L, Basic 3Axis im shure not that hard to setup
11:35 AM Agrubbs: English starts to regionise and Fingers make Mistakes on Spelling so Sorry on That
11:36 AM robotustra: Agrubbs, Are You From Germany?
11:36 AM Agrubbs: Do i need t lock out
11:36 AM Agrubbs: robotustra, Yes
11:36 AM Agrubbs: logout
11:36 AM robotustra: Agrubbs, What Part of It?
11:37 AM Agrubbs: Near Ramstein Luxembourg
11:37 AM Agrubbs: 30km from French Border
11:38 AM Agrubbs: Soldier may JKnow Landstuhl Kaiserslautern
11:38 AM robotustra: I see
11:39 AM Agrubbs: Goodbye
11:40 AM robotustra: I have to make a bushing for broach, but it's too lazy today
11:40 AM robotustra: Have to grind a cylinder from 3/4" to 19.00 mm
11:43 AM unterhaus_: is it already the right internal shape?
11:44 AM robotustra: unterhaus_, are you asking me?
11:45 AM unterhaus_: yes, your broach
11:48 AM robotustra: I'll do bushing myself, I have a round stock of 3/4" I have to grind it to 19 mm and after that mill the slot for broach
11:48 AM robotustra: the broach I got already
11:49 AM robotustra: but as soon as I don't work I can start on Monday
11:49 AM robotustra: let me be lazy on Sunday :)
11:50 AM robotustra: now I have more time to build the lathe
11:50 AM robotustra: I even thinking if I have to make some video about it
11:51 AM robotustra: don't know if people will watch it anyway
11:51 AM Tom_L: robotustra, like this one? http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/rotary/Broach/Broach2.jpg
11:51 AM robotustra: yes, like this
11:51 AM Tom_L: i did one for my new motor shaft
11:52 AM robotustra: so I have do the same,
11:53 AM robotustra: to mount pulley to the motor shaft and attach th motor plate to the spindle housing
11:53 AM robotustra: https://i.imgur.com/RkciCJ0.jpg
11:54 AM robotustra: one pulley is at the place
11:54 AM robotustra: not bolted yet, but fit to place
12:01 PM robotustra: and after spindle is finished I'll start to do wiring
12:35 PM likevinyl is now known as Guest49394
12:40 PM robotustra: Tom_L, do you happy with your motor upgrade?
01:39 PM Tom_L: robotustra, yes
01:43 PM robotustra: Tom_L, you could not do rigid tapping with previous motor?
01:45 PM Tom_L: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g99lUtjLfMU
01:45 PM Tom_L: not that well
01:45 PM Tom_L: but yes
01:45 PM Tom_L: compared to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EV7crK24eCE
01:48 PM robotustra: yeah I see that old motor has not enough of power to start turning
01:49 PM robotustra: I read a little bit about my motor, and it looks like it can work in position/torque/velocity mode
01:49 PM robotustra: will need to experiment with modes for turning
01:51 PM Tom_L: yeah PID has to build up
01:51 PM robotustra: the PID is inside driver
01:52 PM robotustra: not sure if it's PID coefficients there
02:13 PM Guest98118 is now known as _unreal_
02:13 PM _unreal_: finally got my z rails aligned
02:22 PM _unreal_: its killing me I had to fine tune my z rails with epoxy filler
02:22 PM _unreal_: for the micro gap
02:22 PM _unreal_: and untill it set's up I cant tighten the screws
02:22 PM _unreal_: but soon as its done it will be wonderful
02:23 PM _unreal_: currently I only have a few screws that are tight
02:26 PM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +vv by hitchcock.freenode.net
02:46 PM JT-Shop: Tom_L, you get your spindle sorted out?
02:46 PM likevinyl is now known as Guest78969
02:49 PM robotustra: _unreal_, just put some shims under the rails and tighten all screws
02:56 PM Tom_L: JT-Shop, i could probably get the PID a bit smoother but it's not bad
02:57 PM Tom_L: if i go from one extreme rpm to another it overshoots a bit but that's not something you normally would do
02:57 PM Tom_L: oddly enough i used FF0 & FF1 and not P
02:58 PM JT-Shop: cool, I think I'm ready to thread mill some styrofoam lol now if I can just remember where the thread mills are
02:58 PM Tom_L: heh
02:58 PM Tom_L: it's fun but when it goes in it makes you pucker a bit
02:59 PM Tom_L: you using your threadmill routine?
02:59 PM JT-Shop: You might want to set the FF0 a little low so that the speed never over-sho
02:59 PM JT-Shop: ots
02:59 PM Tom_L: setp pid.0.Igain 1.8
02:59 PM Tom_L: setp pid.0.FF0 .75
02:59 PM Tom_L: setp pid.0.FF1 .75
03:00 PM Tom_L: that seems to do pretty well
03:01 PM Tom_L: the driver is also trying to maintain the speed. this pid just gets the analog to the requested value in linuxcnc and holds it
03:01 PM Tom_L: i'm using both
03:03 PM JT-Shop: hmm I guess it's time to clean up...
03:04 PM Tom_L: i went out and straighened up a bit just now
03:05 PM Tom_L: i love not having that water cooler and bucket sitting there
03:07 PM JT-Shop: I bet that is a PIA
03:08 PM Tom_L: i just squared up a 3/4" block and the spindle motor was cold. the sherline would have been hot to the touch
03:20 PM JT-Shop: more power!
03:21 PM JT-Shop: this is getting a bit annoying not finding the thread mills
03:22 PM Tom_L: you know you put them in a special spot so you would know where to find em...
03:22 PM JT-Shop: exactly
03:26 PM JT-Shop: what feed rate do you use when thread milling and what rpm?
03:26 PM Tom_L: lemme look
03:26 PM Tom_L: i run mine pretty slow but i'm in no rush
03:29 PM Tom_L: the 1/4" i have at 4krpm and 8 ipm which is a ways off from practical
03:30 PM Tom_L: 3k would surely be fine
03:30 PM Tom_L: there's hardly any load on it
03:31 PM Tom_L: the 3/4 is 4k rpm and 12 ipm
03:32 PM Tom_L: i'm sure you can run them 2x that feed and be ok
03:32 PM JT-Shop: with the BP I can go 4200 but it's kinda loud 3k is much better
03:32 PM Tom_L: that's .0005" chip load
03:32 PM Tom_L: just do 3k then
03:32 PM gregcnc: https://harveyperformance.widen.net/content/vbpsu6uivs/pdf/SF_901200.pdf?u=r5tz5r
03:33 PM JT-Shop: I did find thme
03:33 PM JT-Shop: them
03:33 PM Tom_L: i didn't know where to start either so i went very conservative
03:33 PM JT-Shop: how many passes do you do?
03:33 PM Tom_L: i did one on that brass but 2 normally just because
03:33 PM Tom_L: again it's still a learning curve for me
03:34 PM JT-Shop: ok, my conversational I can just punch in all that stuff and out pops the g code
03:34 PM JT-Shop: hmm need to find a chunk of styrofoam or lardo
03:34 PM gregcnc: harvey has good recommendations, except I picked 3Xl length
03:34 PM Tom_L: i got my macro programming to the bottom of the tool too so it shouldn't ever bottom out
03:35 PM gregcnc: https://www.harveytool.com/resources/speeds-feeds#specialty_profiles
03:35 PM Tom_L: roughly half a thread
03:35 PM gregcnc: bah, 0.1mm
03:50 PM Tom_L: gregcnc, i wonder about that SS example they give 7k rpm seems like alot for SS
03:51 PM _unreal_: robotustra, naaa
03:51 PM _unreal_: better to use metal bonding epoxy
03:51 PM _unreal_: ss?
03:54 PM Tom_L: JT-Shop, that .0005 chip load may be pretty close depending on the alloy
03:57 PM JT-Shop: I might try a chunk of soft wood next it seemed to cut a thread in the foam lol
03:58 PM Tom_L: i assume you're using a 1/4" threadmill
03:58 PM JT-Shop: gotta make a few changes to my conversational to add a tool change position and end position
03:58 PM Tom_L: seems that
03:58 PM JT-Shop: 1/2"
03:58 PM Tom_L: oh
03:58 PM Tom_L: you could bump the chip load up to .001 if you feel lucky
03:58 PM JT-Shop: I figure it's harder to break it while testing my conversational
03:58 PM Tom_L: that's in the range of that chart
03:59 PM JT-Shop: harvey chart?
03:59 PM Tom_L: yeah roughly
04:00 PM Tom_L: the 1/2" tool diameter is .372 on that one
04:00 PM JT-Shop: I'll compare their calculations to what I have and might add a suggested feed/speed by material
04:00 PM Tom_L: which is well within the range for .001 chip load
04:01 PM JT-Shop: yea I have all that in my tool database
04:04 PM Tom_L: i could have doubled the feed on my 3/4" one
04:06 PM Tom_L: i've always had to run conservative rates due to the spindle getting hot
04:07 PM Tom_L: now i'll have to rethink a few of em
04:13 PM Tom_L: they also suggest at least 2 passes on everything but somebody here said they do a single pass and done
04:14 PM Tom_L: they = harvey
04:19 PM JT-Shop: yea I saw that for unf 2 passes and 3 for unc
04:26 PM Tom_L: but theirs are all full depth passes and my macro uses the percentages you gave me way back when
04:42 PM JT-Shop: I didn't notice that, yea I use percentages of material removal
04:42 PM JT-Shop: so each pass has the same load
04:46 PM Tom_L: For Easy Machinability = 2 Radial Pass at full Axial Depth
04:46 PM Tom_L: For Moderate Machinability = 3 Radial Passes at full Axial Depth
04:46 PM Tom_L: For Difficult Machinability = 4 Radial Passes at full Axial Depth
04:46 PM Tom_L: i'll stick with what i've got
04:58 PM Eric__: I had a linear encoder buying spree on ebay probably 15 years ago
04:58 PM Eric__: I think I'll just sell my whole acu-rite system together
04:59 PM Eric__: it would work fine on a small mill like a bp series I
05:03 PM Eric__: acurite had to start with pin 2 instead of pin 1 like anyone else in the world would have done
05:17 PM _unreal_: ARG... I hate not being able to do anything
05:18 PM _unreal_: everything is more or less done on my cnc but the z
05:18 PM _unreal_: and waiting on the new motor controller to show up
05:18 PM _unreal_: :S
05:18 PM _unreal_: I could maybe hang some wires but thats about it
05:18 PM _unreal_: sigh
05:22 PM Tom_L: i waited 9 weeks for mine
05:23 PM Tom_L: seems TP is getting scarce again
05:23 PM Tom_L: hope you still got a digikey catalog laying around.. you may need it
05:25 PM JT-Cave: yea what's up with that shit again
05:25 PM JT-Cave: prob some facebook crap
05:26 PM robotustra: hm, instaram does square pictures :(
05:27 PM _unreal_: the TP/pt run has to do with the BS beer bug
05:28 PM _unreal_: or I should say has to do with the lies about it. OOOOOH GREATEST volume of cases EVER. cases=asymptomatic which means NOT sick. not impossible to become suck but had a positive test result for having the "bug" in one's testing location.
05:29 PM _unreal_: and oh wiat they are doing more testing right now then EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER before..
05:29 PM _unreal_: and yet the " death " counts are still nothing. and the only number that matters is death counts.
05:30 PM _unreal_: also the media has been saying stock up on " items " that are running regarding the ELECTION.
05:31 PM XXCoder: TP? tilet paper?
05:31 PM _unreal_: next week the trump legal teams are going to be presenting the first parts of the evidence
05:31 PM _unreal_: XXCoder, yarp
05:32 PM XXCoder: thankfully I use bidet so usage is much lower so it lasts ;)
05:32 PM _unreal_: that everyone has been saying there is non. WELL DUH.. has not been presented in court. cant show the world before showing the courts.
05:32 PM _unreal_: anyone seen my MM? need to check the polarity
05:33 PM _unreal_: trying to wire up my goose neck LED
05:33 PM _unreal_: got that mounted to the spindle mount the other day
05:35 PM Eric__: Tom_L did you need your weekly dose of conspiracy theories?
05:37 PM Tom_L: not particularly
05:39 PM Eric__: I forgot I bought paper towels so I bought some again and now we have a very extensive supply
05:50 PM Eric__: I should probably buy tp if possible, we go through that stuff like it grows on trees
05:50 PM Tom_L: it does
05:53 PM XXCoder: lol
06:01 PM Eric__: it turns out stuff that grows on trees hasn't been cheap for a very long time
06:15 PM roycroft: after a herculean effort this weekend i just finished migrating ~40 years worth of email from my old address to the new one
06:15 PM roycroft: i've been migrating stuff slowly, in a piecemeal fashion, for several months
06:15 PM roycroft: but it was time to finish the task
06:16 PM roycroft: i have emails going back to the uucp days :)
06:16 PM roycroft: when i was slowly migrating things i was trashing a lot of stuff that i don't need any more
06:17 PM roycroft: that did not happen this weekend, but hopefully i'll get back to cleaning things up eventually
06:18 PM Eric__: I took care of my old emails by deleting them all
06:18 PM roycroft: i could probably do that with the majority of the stuff
06:19 PM roycroft: but there are some old emails that i want to retain
06:19 PM roycroft: the problem is that when there are hundreds of thousands of emails spanning several decades it's hard to sort through them and trim the fat
06:19 PM Eric__: I had some emails I know I kept on my gmail account but searching for them failed, which was a bit annoying
06:20 PM * roycroft has never hosted his email other than on his own servers, and as such has never been able to blame anyone but himself for anything that goes missing
06:27 PM Eric__: I could blame seagate a couple of times
06:28 PM Eric__: roycroft, I put in an order to mcmaster car yesterday and I think you can guess the punchline
06:29 PM Eric__: I realized an hour later I wanted some 3/4" square rod
06:33 PM Eric__: I think they might have charged me just as much for shipping it if I had thought of it in time though
06:39 PM Tom_L: JT-Shop, how'd the threads come out?
06:42 PM Eric__: you don't need a spindle encoder to thread mill, correct?
06:43 PM Tom_L: encoder with an index pulse
06:43 PM Tom_L: err no not for threadmilling
06:44 PM Tom_L: for rigid tapping you do
06:44 PM Tom_L: confused since i just did some rigid tapping :)
06:45 PM Eric__: you just need an index for rigid tapping?
06:45 PM Tom_L: threadmills follow a helix path
06:45 PM Tom_L: yes
06:45 PM Eric__: so I could probably do it on my bridgeport?
06:46 PM Tom_L: i don't know your bridgeport but likely so
06:46 PM Tom_L: i did it on a sherline
06:48 PM thomas is now known as Guest80891
06:50 PM Eric__: Tom_L, you did it with the sherline motor?
06:51 PM Eric__: probably a little easier mechanically to do it on the sherline
06:51 PM Tom_L: yes i did and not it's not easier
06:51 PM Tom_L: the sherline motor control is fwd only
06:52 PM Tom_L: i had to do some trickery with relays delays etc to make it work
06:52 PM Tom_L: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g99lUtjLfMU
06:55 PM Eric__: okay, that makes it a lot harder
06:56 PM Eric__: although I'm not sure how easy it will be to rig up my vfd
07:00 PM Tom_L: i expect a video next week :)
07:40 PM Eric__: not at my glacial pace, still haven't hooked up the mill at all
08:44 PM XXCoder: interesting trick https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozSE7Wrdb1o&t=1014s&ab_channel=NextLevelCarpentry
08:44 PM XXCoder: remove weld seam inside
08:51 PM Tom_L: why?
08:51 PM Tom_L: maybe if you needed telescopic tubes i suppose
08:51 PM XXCoder: yeah
08:51 PM XXCoder: dunno too but interesting anyway
08:52 PM Tom_L: does he use a carbide burr tool?
08:55 PM XXCoder: video has link that lists tool yeah didnt click to read that tool though
08:57 PM XXCoder: crashed client jeez. did i miss anything
09:02 PM Tom_L: just crickets
09:02 PM XXCoder: ok
09:02 PM XXCoder: HHIP 3000-0127 SD-7 Ball Shape Double-Cut Carbide Burrs
09:03 PM XXCoder: definitely then
09:27 PM _unreal_: sweet
09:28 PM _unreal_: just tightned all of the screws on the z rails after doing the fix.
09:28 PM _unreal_: and I have 3 thousands run out max
09:28 PM _unreal_: smooth as silk the z is
09:29 PM _unreal_: now I just need to get My Z main mounting plate trued up
09:29 PM _unreal_: and I can mount it
09:29 PM _unreal_: and a few more adapter parts for Z
09:30 PM _unreal_: I'm not looking fwd to adapting a cog though
09:30 PM _unreal_: ether I have to bild one or buy one
09:31 PM _unreal_: I'm not sure how I could go about trying to build a cog...
09:32 PM _unreal_: I have a setup that would be an A setup but...
09:32 PM _unreal_: I've never finished it
09:33 PM Tom_L: cog?
09:33 PM _unreal_: timing belt pully what ever
09:33 PM _unreal_: god bite my head off why dont ya
09:33 PM _unreal_: heh
09:35 PM XXCoder: no idea what cog is :)
09:35 PM Tom_L: but you're supposed to
09:40 PM XXCoder: oh well lol. apparently its teeth on a gear?
09:40 PM Tom_L: he said timing pulley after the inquiry
09:51 PM XXCoder: timing pulley? did i miss something?
09:53 PM Eric__: pulley for timing belt?
10:04 PM gloops: not sure how far a timing pulley can be adapted before it ceases to be a timing pulley
10:45 PM _unreal_: nifty
10:45 PM _unreal_: I just booted a junk computer that I pulled from a dumpster
10:45 PM _unreal_: core 2 duo 2.93ghz
10:45 PM _unreal_: case is a bit fucked up
10:46 PM roycroft: how does a computer end up in a dumpster?
10:46 PM roycroft: electronics need to be recycled
10:46 PM roycroft: they cannot go in landfills
10:46 PM _unreal_: try working in my industry
10:46 PM roycroft: it's illegal to do that
10:47 PM XXCoder: you found one in dump?
10:47 PM roycroft: plus, recycling electronics is free
10:47 PM roycroft: it costs money to throw stuff in the trash
10:52 PM _unreal_: in the luxury yacht industry in the marinas you can " toss" near anything
10:52 PM _unreal_: there are rules
10:52 PM _unreal_: but so far as I can tell computers dont matter
10:54 PM _unreal_: now hazardous waste like bottom pain contaminated sand blasting dust can not go into the dumpster
10:54 PM _unreal_: and other such things
10:54 PM _unreal_: but I'm also talking about special dumpsters that are pure waste
10:54 PM _unreal_: so ya they dont much care what goes in
10:55 PM _unreal_: so ya core to duo hehe
10:55 PM _unreal_: nifty
10:56 PM Eric__: my new favorite genre of youtube videos is people fixing broken gibson headstocks
10:56 PM * roycroft is watching abom79 at the moment
11:04 PM skunkworks: Made a simple charge pump.. Seems to work well. (I think it was an example from geko drives)
11:11 PM Eric__: abom79 is good, I was watching his video about how a taper attachment works the other night
11:12 PM Eric__: I decided I should figure out how mine worked before I disabled it somehow by putting on the encoder
11:13 PM Eric__: I found out it relies on an annoying little pin that I don't have.
