12:18 AM XXCoder: for entire year as he worked on that paper
12:18 AM roycroft: i know he stopped making videos on his main channel a couple years ago
12:18 AM roycroft: and i thought that was it for him
12:18 AM roycroft: now there are dozens of new short videos to occupy my time
12:18 AM XXCoder: you can read the paper and the why video now
12:26 AM miss0r: six days into having a broken thumb - restlessness and insanity is creeping up on me ! :]
12:31 AM XXCoder: aww
12:31 AM miss0r: yeah it sucks. I can't even operate the lathe proberly
01:05 AM unterhaus_: what is the second clockspring channel?
01:08 AM unterhaus_: clickspring
01:15 AM CaptHindsight: $100,000 clock? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dU7iKNmQBIs
01:25 AM unterhaus_: searching for clickspring II doesn't yield anything
01:26 AM unterhaus_: I was surprised there was no link on his site or other youtube channel
01:26 AM XXCoder: oops
01:26 AM XXCoder: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9UjDtkpr2I-5G51vMJZvnA
01:26 AM XXCoder: its clickspring clips. it says clickspring II in video heh
01:26 AM unterhaus_: thanks
01:26 AM XXCoder: np
02:03 AM CaptHindsight: been watching the Game Stop trading screw over the hedge funds
02:03 AM CaptHindsight: the movie writes itself
02:03 AM XXCoder: yeah
02:05 AM CaptHindsight: better than Trading Places
04:26 AM Tom_L: morning
04:30 AM CaptHindsight: hah still night here
05:01 AM JT-Cave: morning
05:02 AM XXCoder: good night/morning/whatever
05:03 AM CaptHindsight: happy January
05:35 AM XXCoder: making tiny lathe https://youtu.be/yD0r-ErbRCw
08:19 AM gregcnc: needs turret and subspindle
09:20 AM roycroft: 9 degrees today, and up in the teens again by week's end
09:20 AM roycroft: i may be able to get some work done in the shop
09:20 AM satiowadahc: Back to the painting?
09:20 AM roycroft: yes
09:21 AM roycroft: i probably should not have done this project in the winter, but that's when the time worked out
09:26 AM satiowadahc: Is there ever a right time for a project?
09:37 AM roycroft: yes, most of the time
09:37 AM roycroft: at least for me
12:31 PM lag: Has anyone tested: configs/sim/axis/vismach/5axis/bridgemill ?
12:31 PM lag: I'm getting errors if I try to start it using the command given in the README
12:32 PM lag: Does Dewey Garrett frequent this channel at all?
01:50 PM Tom_L: lag, no
02:06 PM gregcnc: I need a delay timer on a 3.4A fan. seems like most delay relay are rated 3A. so a delay relay -> contactor relay is how this should be done?
02:08 PM Tom_L: that one you linked wouldn't work?
02:09 PM gregcnc: 3A?
02:10 PM Tom_L: i dunno, it was yesterday iirc
02:10 PM gregcnc: that's the thing, most are rated 3A
02:10 PM Tom_L: https://www.digikey.com/en/products/detail/crouzet/88827135/4071435
02:12 PM gregcnc: well duh, using digikey to search through available components would have made sense
02:13 PM Tom_L: :)
02:16 PM gregcnc: my google fu failed this time
02:35 PM roycroft: digikey's search tree really sucks
02:35 PM roycroft: i look for parts using it all the time and can't find what i want
02:36 PM roycroft: then i go pull out my old printed digikey catalog, find the part i want, type the part number in to their search form and the part pops up
02:36 PM roycroft: the problem is that they haven't printed a catalog in years, so my method doesn't work for new stuff
02:55 PM unterhaus: I think googling the part number works better for a lot of companies
02:55 PM unterhaus: digikey has a problem if you are searching using parameters.
03:01 PM roycroft: my bandsaw fence is too big, which is what i thought might be the case
03:02 PM roycroft: a wee bit of remodeling should take care of the problem though
03:02 PM roycroft: it's a very nice fence - i know i'll like it
03:10 PM unterhaus: that's good about the fence, are you mostly going to be doing resawing with it?
03:10 PM roycroft: i'm not sure
03:10 PM roycroft: i bought it primarily for that
03:10 PM roycroft: but if i get the bandsaw dialed in well i might use it ofr ripping as well
03:11 PM roycroft: i am often doing ripping/crosscutting back and forth on the tablesaw, and it would be nice to not have to be swapping out the blade all the time
03:11 PM roycroft: plus, the bandsaw cuts a thinner kerf
03:12 PM roycroft: that fence flips from upright to horizontal really easily
03:12 PM lag: Tom_L: Was that "no" to both questions?
03:14 PM roycroft: i can easily set up a worklow where i go from jointer to thicknesser to bandsaw to jointer, having the tablesaw ready for crosscutting at any time
03:14 PM roycroft: i don't have a chop saw these days, so i either use a handsaw or the tablesaw for cross cutting
03:41 PM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
03:45 PM * JT-Shop got informed he needed to read the 300+ page Wittmann press robot manual because programming them just added to my plate
04:36 PM perry_j1987: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yD0r-ErbRCw doin the jaws for that mini lathe today
04:41 PM jdh]: JT-Cave: do you bill for reading time?
04:43 PM roycroft: when i'm asked do work outwith my area of expertise i have a conversation with the customer about it
04:43 PM roycroft: if it's something i'm likely to deal with in the future with other customers i usually split the research/learning time
04:43 PM roycroft: if it's something totally weird and unique i let the customer pay for all of that time
04:43 PM roycroft: and they know that up front
04:44 PM roycroft: if it's something i should already know but don't i don't bill the customer
04:57 PM JT-Shop: jdh], sometimes lol
04:57 PM JT-Shop: what roy said
05:01 PM roycroft: my new bandsaw fence is designed to sit just above the table
05:02 PM roycroft: it has a plastic "foot" that slides across a rear support rail to hold it off the table
05:02 PM roycroft: i'm trying to decide whether to use that or to let it sit directly on the table
05:03 PM roycroft: my tablesaw fence is the same way, and it's frustrating when i'm trying to rip plastic laminate or something really thin like that - i have to install an auxiliary fence to keep it from sliding under the fence
05:03 PM roycroft: i'll play with it once i get the saw reassembled and figure out what works best for me
05:04 PM roycroft: the fence has some horizontal slots that don't line up with anything for mounting to the table - i can machine some vertical slots that do line up with the table and will let me adjust the height
05:05 PM roycroft: fence rails, that is
05:11 PM JT-Shop: the sawstop fence has a uhmw pad on the back but the fence is real close to the table and so does my bandsaw
05:12 PM roycroft: yeah, my tablesaw fence is real close to the table
05:12 PM roycroft: but veneer and plastic laminate can still slip underneath it
05:14 PM roycroft: well, my day job is done
05:14 PM roycroft: time for some quality shop time
05:24 PM JT-Shop: the sawstop is less than a 32nd of gap
05:35 PM Thorhian: Just bought a whole bunch of square tube steel today for welding together a stand for my milling machine :D One step closer to getting it into my house.
06:01 PM skunkworks: CaptHindsight: hatchbox pla
06:01 PM satiowadahc: Nice hot -12C here, the line up on the carwash is 20 cars deep
06:17 PM JavaBean: -12c in canuckdia??? are you guys having a heat wave?
06:18 PM satiowadahc: -40 last few days was not a pleasant time.

09:17 PM perry_j1987: this keeps popping up in funny places
09:17 PM perry_j1987: in one of the forums someone photoshopped him by a VMC with caption that said something about waiting for long cycle times heh
