11:17 PM * Bleep-CNC does the Happy Dance...
11:18 PM XXCoder: hey
11:18 PM XXCoder: first chips?
11:18 PM Bleep-CNC: Got the new arm on the CNC and I don't have to chase the keyboard because it no longer dances around like a drunk stripper. :D
11:18 PM XXCoder: lol
11:20 PM Bleep-CNC: Got first chip days ago... Got accurate chips the day after... Now I'm going for making it usable without having the monitor on an old hospital crash cart with the fonts cranked up to Mr Magoo... LOL
11:20 PM XXCoder: :)
11:24 PM Bleep-CNC: Vacuum system for the table is plumbed tested and working. Back frame is up and ready for whatever I can find for lighting. I'm ready to make a mess. xD
11:24 PM XXCoder: :)
11:25 PM * Bleep-CNC wants some of what XXCoder has been smoking...
11:25 PM XXCoder: smoking would kill mne
11:25 PM XXCoder: bad lungs
11:25 PM Bleep-CNC: There's an awful lot of grinning going on over there... LOL
11:25 PM XXCoder: im bored af now
11:26 PM XXCoder: printing game board prototype though
11:30 PM * Bleep-CNC is putting away spare blocks of Acetron, the scrollsaw, lots of hardware and whatever landed on the table in the last 48 hours.
11:30 PM XXCoder: have to make sure connections work before porinting full size and thickness
11:31 PM Bleep-CNC: XXCoder: ???
11:31 PM XXCoder: yeah?
11:32 PM Bleep-CNC: Game board ?
11:32 PM XXCoder: oh yeah
11:32 PM XXCoder: lemme link
11:32 PM XXCoder: https://www.pagat.com/race/pegsandjokers.html
11:32 PM XXCoder: its free to make your own copies of it
11:33 PM XXCoder: theres various examples, im making my own variant of rightmost
11:33 PM Bleep-CNC: Ah. Now I get it.
11:35 PM Bleep-CNC: After seeing how good this did with the line engraving on the signI'm gonna hunt up my pile of PC board stock and try milling a prototype board.
11:37 PM XXCoder: different scale
11:37 PM Bleep-CNC: In the meantime I'm cleaning the shop with Tommy by the Who running at something approaching a fatal volume level.
11:37 PM XXCoder: board you would need far less varations across board than sign
11:37 PM XXCoder: you probably can just facemill board holder so its flat in respect to spindle
11:38 PM XXCoder: assuming spindle is trimmed
11:38 PM Bleep-CNC: And the new arm has been up for < 1/2 an hour and the cat is already trying to see if the keyboard tray will support her now... LMAO
11:38 PM XXCoder: if theres platform cat will be on it
11:39 PM XXCoder: you need to put out fresh box cat will go to it lol
11:40 PM Bleep-CNC: Tried that. There are 3 cat beds scattered round the shop. Where does she insist on sleeping? My lap or my chair if I'm not sitting in it.
11:40 PM XXCoder: lol
11:45 PM XXCoder: design is bit of failure
11:46 PM XXCoder: it allows person to turn it inward past 90 degrees which is not needed, and dont allow outward enough to reach zerp
11:46 PM XXCoder: zero
11:46 PM XXCoder: (zero would be infinite players lol)
