01:14 PM JT-Cave: no clue when they might arrive...
01:33 PM gregcnc: loetmichel DE OSHA would like to know your location
02:34 PM Tom_L: Loetmichel, that looks like a perfectly safe way to cut your fingers off
02:37 PM Tom_L: mmm 5 earthquakes here this morning
02:37 PM Tom_L: https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/?extent=37.62837,-97.37801&extent=37.80734,-97.11914&listOnlyShown=true
02:39 PM JT-Cave: Tom_L, has all the fun...
02:40 PM Tom_L: same area of town as the one a week or so ago
02:43 PM Tom_L: and here i thought it was just the mill hard at work
04:08 PM _unreal_: freaking agony
04:08 PM _unreal_: my netbook has more windows updates
04:08 PM _unreal_: taking for ever
04:11 PM _unreal_: all I want to do is laser cut some isolators so I can glue my heat sinks to my motor controllers
04:11 PM _unreal_: SOOOOO annoying
04:12 PM _unreal_: just ENDLESS updates
04:12 PM _unreal_: and that netbook is SOOO slow
04:16 PM _unreal_: do you guys know of any MICRO collet chucks?
04:16 PM _unreal_: I dont think they even exist
04:16 PM _unreal_: would love to find one that could attach to a 1/4" shaft
04:16 PM _unreal_: really small stuff
04:18 PM t4nk_freenode: what's the status on your new driver board, rowdy unreal friend of mine?
04:18 PM veegee: "– 4.3 (tier 4A) EPA approved engine – IT CAN BE USED INDOORS"
04:18 PM veegee: lol
04:19 PM veegee: propane internal combustion indoors is already silly
04:19 PM veegee: diesel indoors is just idiotic
04:20 PM veegee: unless their definition of indoors is "has a roof and 4 walls but no HVAC and just huge blowers constantly venting air"
04:20 PM _unreal_: everything works. the machine is sitting at work currently
04:20 PM _unreal_: cant do anything with it.
04:21 PM _unreal_: and as I said the other day I ordered a planetcnc controller
04:21 PM JT-Shop: didn't he get a smooth stepper?
04:21 PM t4nk_freenode: ? you already received and installed that new one
04:21 PM _unreal_: had enough fighting lcnc. home is one thing but not for a business environment.
04:21 PM _unreal_: no
04:21 PM _unreal_: wont be here till Jan. something
04:21 PM _unreal_: they are not an american company
04:21 PM t4nk_freenode: mmm
04:22 PM veegee: But then again, charging flooded lead acid indoors makes me cough violently due to the sulfric acid mist. I need to get those water miser caps
04:22 PM _unreal_: OMGT..... its still updating
04:22 PM _unreal_: slow ass POS netbook
04:22 PM _unreal_: or extration
04:24 PM _unreal_: I litterally have one of these
04:24 PM _unreal_: https://www.ebay.com/itm/113311790261?_trkparms=ispr%3D1&amdata=enc%3AAQAFAAACMBaobrjLl8XobRIiIML1V4Imu%252Fn%252BzU5L90Z278x5ickk78vJD5GFIy9QvhY4FFplw9iYxrVDtcY9MioYoL%252FN68WbIPSRMq%252BAI%252FP39fE%252B2x5QmUTqKZ9c1e6pzYIyy4E5k%252FgpT3smgfeMbj0nzEJXUhtA39RtMtkFaDNpnZBYSb9y%252FVXjRw7BhUUy%252FdHw0JlTrL8MF7Ry4IOQ%252BU6pyZ2fVb7k%252BSHuJCq5NrUOZuKhbeDJQHk2ceRh%252B%252BlnUcKazn28yPZXd0x9vghGNJSJdFdb1MTx%252BRZ9stjwfnFS6A

04:24 PM _unreal_: ahhh
04:24 PM _unreal_: wtf
04:25 PM _unreal_: https://www.ebay.com/itm/WINFRED-M-BERG-WORM-WHEEL-ASSEMBLY-50-1-RATIO-CAT-WX64B4-7/113311790261?hash=item1a61e8b4b5:g:zS8AAOSwYGFU1AFc
04:25 PM _unreal_: so I have one of those gear boxes
04:25 PM _unreal_: the one I have has an 88:1 ratio
04:26 PM _unreal_: and I have a 1.8 step stepper on it
04:26 PM _unreal_: I'd love to mount a small chuck on it
04:27 PM _unreal_: Now the one I have has a "belt" pully with a clamp on it
04:27 PM _unreal_: that I can move to any side
04:27 PM _unreal_: I'm thinking I could maybe setup code to have my CNC thread it?
04:28 PM _unreal_: so I could then use that as a mount?? for a chuck
04:28 PM _unreal_: micro 3-4 jaw chuck
04:28 PM _unreal_: since I cant find a chuck that will clam/mount to a 1/4" shaft
04:28 PM _unreal_: FINALLY it booted
04:30 PM _unreal_: 88:1 ratio and its VERY tight no play
04:31 PM _unreal_: still booting
04:31 PM _unreal_: this is why I never turn the damn thing off. because it takes almost 30min to boot
04:31 PM _unreal_: with OUT updates
04:33 PM _unreal_: Damn it I hate waiting for nothing
04:42 PM Tom_L: _unreal_, 1/2" shaft maybe
04:42 PM XXCoder: Loetmichel: lol
04:44 PM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/valenite/valenite_holder1.jpg
04:44 PM Tom_L: _unreal_, valenite extension collet
04:46 PM Tom_L: takes a DA300 collet
04:47 PM Tom_L: https://www.ebay.com/p/1837956920
04:48 PM Tom_L: https://www.parlec.com/Products/Tool-Holding/Double-Angle/Collets/DA300
04:49 PM Tom_L: https://www.mscdirect.com/industrialtools/erickson-da300-double-angle-collets.html
04:49 PM Tom_L: about as small as i know of
04:51 PM _unreal_: finally laser cutting
04:54 PM veegee: _unreal_ nice, how long until you can do laser surgery on eyes?
05:00 PM t4nk_freenode: heh, he's been doing brain surgery on himself and his family for decades now
05:01 PM t4nk_freenode: ever since they discovered theirs is made of starboard
05:02 PM Tom_L: t4nk_freenode, is that hollow?
05:03 PM Tom_L: :)
05:03 PM t4nk_freenode: lol, no idea ;)
05:07 PM Tom_L: https://www.ebay.com/itm/TECHNIKS-DA300-7-PC-DOUBLE-ANGLE-COLLET-SET-1-16-1-4-X-1-32-CNC-CHUCK/113719218779
05:07 PM Tom_L: there's a collet set for it
05:12 PM JT-Cave: ewww da collets
05:17 PM veegee: What the hell? A36 structural steel is 0.26% C and has a yield strength of 32,000 psi yield strength. C1018 steel is 0.18% C and has a yield strength of 53,700 psi
05:17 PM roycroft: what's the advantage of those collets?
05:17 PM roycroft: besides profit for the manufacturer
05:17 PM veegee: 32,000 psi yield strength seems low for any kind of steel
05:18 PM JavaBean: careful. you might fall into the "jet fuel can't melt steel beams" rabbithole
05:19 PM veegee: Also why do people seem to care more about ultimate tensile strength? Why would you ever design your structure to the point of permanent deformation?
05:19 PM _unreal_: I just do not get it
05:19 PM veegee: I don't even want to get close to the yield strength in static stress analysis
05:19 PM _unreal_: my laser etcher is turning on running but not cutting anything
05:19 PM _unreal_: it WAS cutting just fine but had an issue with homing so it over cut my part
05:19 PM roycroft: stick your finger under the beam to see if it's putting out full power
05:19 PM roycroft: :)
05:19 PM _unreal_: so stopped it relocated the paper. now it looks like its on but not burning anything
05:20 PM veegee: JavaBean I do think 9/11 has a lot of lies surrounding it and the government was involved, but that's a different topic for another day
05:20 PM JT-Cave: roycroft, da collets are horrible
05:20 PM Tom_L: yeah they stick etc
05:20 PM Tom_L: but he wanted small
05:20 PM veegee: Right now I care more about what the hell is going on with the yield strength rating of A36 structural steel
05:20 PM JavaBean: just warning you that you don't wanna look into the "structural strength" of steel
05:21 PM veegee: most of those discussions are old anyway, so they don't show up on the first page of google
05:21 PM roycroft: the main "lie" about 9/11 is that iraq had anything to do with it
05:21 PM veegee: yes that at the very least
05:21 PM roycroft: and it's the holiday season
05:21 PM roycroft: peace and good will and stuff
05:21 PM roycroft: so let's not go any further than that :)
05:21 PM veegee: But seriously 0.26% C is a lot
05:21 PM veegee: So what makes C1018 stronger?
05:23 PM * roycroft is trying to figure out why his imac beachballs for close to 10 minutes every time he tries to print something
05:23 PM Tom_L: veegee, lots of manganese
05:24 PM veegee: Ah yeah I see it
05:24 PM _unreal_: well fuck me, laser must be burnt out
05:24 PM _unreal_: CANT HAVE any more then 5 hours on it
05:25 PM _unreal_: then again CHEAP chines bs
05:25 PM _unreal_: going to try unplugging it for a while
05:25 PM _unreal_: see if that helps any
05:25 PM roycroft: you didn't feed it 24v, did you?
05:25 PM _unreal_: should be m4 s255 max power
05:25 PM _unreal_: the laser runs on 5v
05:25 PM roycroft: hmm
05:26 PM _unreal_: just a simple grbl
05:26 PM roycroft: mine runs on 12v
05:26 PM _unreal_: NEJE laser etcher
05:26 PM roycroft: most of those imported ones do
05:26 PM roycroft: the small ones
05:26 PM _unreal_: do what?
05:26 PM roycroft: run on 12v
05:26 PM roycroft: yours must be tiny
05:26 PM _unreal_: the one I have with its original control board ran off USB
05:26 PM * roycroft chalks it up to entropy
05:27 PM _unreal_: I upped it to a GRBL with arduino, and arduino GRBL hat. and 12v motor supply and a DCDC for feeding 5v
05:27 PM _unreal_: to power the board
05:51 PM _unreal_: so something is fucking going on
05:52 PM _unreal_: its not running at full brightness
05:55 PM Tom_L: the chinese watts have all drained from it
05:56 PM gloops: lol
06:00 PM gloops: whats the current status of the build _unreal_
06:01 PM _unreal_: sitting at work. still waiting for my friend to get me the Z part
06:01 PM _unreal_: till I get that z part I cant do shit
06:01 PM _unreal_: and its at work anyways
06:01 PM _unreal_: this is dumb founding I dont get it, its not turning onto full brihtness
06:02 PM _unreal_: doing to try a straight power connect
06:02 PM _unreal_: seee if I get full power
06:02 PM _unreal_: maybe my relay died?
06:04 PM Tom_L: laser diode?
06:04 PM * Tom_L waits for the lid to pop off the diode under full power
06:12 PM _unreal_: ok I just direct connected power and the brightness was not what it should be
06:13 PM _unreal_: next I need to get an other 5v supply
06:13 PM _unreal_: incase my 5v supply died
06:13 PM _unreal_: we will see
06:15 PM roycroft: and the rain has begun
06:15 PM roycroft: we're under a flood watch, but i'm far enough away from the river that it won't affect me directly
06:15 PM XXCoder: here rain havent begin for weeks
06:15 PM roycroft: but 30mm of rain tonight, and another 20+ tomorrow
06:16 PM XXCoder: it needs to stop before it can begin ;)
06:16 PM _unreal_: FUCK has to be the laser
06:16 PM XXCoder: looks like it might take a break at tuesday for 3 days
06:16 PM _unreal_: just used an external 5v psu and the laser is not running at full brightness
06:16 PM roycroft: my neighbor across the street is enclosing his garage, as a family room, i think
06:17 PM roycroft: a week ago the contractor walled up the front where the garage door was
06:17 PM roycroft: and caulked it
06:17 PM roycroft: my neighbor was out painting it just a few minutes ago
06:17 PM roycroft: i anticipate i'll see the wood through the paint in the morning, and that his driveway will be white
06:17 PM Tom_L: didn't frame it in?
06:17 PM roycroft: yes, it's framed in
06:18 PM roycroft: t-111 for the siding, to match the existing siding on that part of the house
06:18 PM roycroft: but it's only 10 degrees out, and he just quit painting
06:18 PM roycroft: and now it's raining cats and dogs
06:18 PM roycroft: there's no way that paint is going to dry
06:18 PM XXCoder: grat time to paint lol
06:19 PM roycroft: he probably wants to get it done before christmas
06:19 PM roycroft: when he'll be breaking the law by having 25 people over
06:21 PM veegee: Ha! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BOw7svMzkk This guy has the exact same lathe as I do
06:21 PM veegee: ACER 1440G
06:22 PM XXCoder: excellent quadcoper piloting I think
06:22 PM Tom_L: roycroft, maybe he'll spread em out over your place too
06:23 PM gloops: messing about with lasers is dicey
06:24 PM gloops: especially faulty lasers, likely to work when you arent expecting it, in your eye
06:25 PM gloops: new UK variant of covid declared to WHO - this is nearly 89% more infectious than old covid, i would expect some lockdown soon
06:25 PM gloops: 80%
06:25 PM Tom_L: only a matter of time
06:26 PM gloops: increases R by .4
06:26 PM gloops: id be expecting some martial law
06:26 PM XXCoder: crazy
06:29 PM _unreal_: lost again
06:29 PM _unreal_: trying to find my #!#$@%!@#$@#$ epoxy tube
06:29 PM _unreal_: no clue what I did with it zero recall :(
06:30 PM _unreal_: again
09:50 PM SpeedEvil is now known as Guest3605
