01:27 AM randy: morning
01:41 AM Deejay: moin
02:02 AM Loetmichel: WELL, NOW i am awake. *brrrr* Laserprinter switching power supplies with primary rectifiers and life heatsinks... *shudder* ...not even needing a coffee first thing in the company ;)
02:04 AM Loetmichel: mornin' btw.
05:07 AM Tom_L: morning
05:07 AM Tom_L: 23°F
05:31 AM JT-Cave: morning
07:27 AM JT-Cave: 27°F chance of flurries today
07:28 AM CloudEvil: https://imgur.com/gallery/i9JIRiS
07:34 AM JT-Cave: I'm so glad I don't live there where ever there is
07:48 AM unterhausen: I thought it was getting cold last night, -1F
07:50 AM unterhausen: supposed to rapidly get warmer though
08:47 AM perry_j1987: morning
08:58 AM miss0r: My coilgun project is nearing completion: https://imgur.com/a/aDa5vtb
08:58 AM miss0r: JT-Cave: ^
09:15 AM JT-Cave: awesome
10:26 AM roycroft: there was no frost at my house again today, but the south hills and the airport are frosty
11:09 AM silopolis_vm[m] is now known as silopolis[m]
11:21 AM JT-Cave: high of 43°F today but it's still below freezing...
11:22 AM perry_j1987: so im re-visiting adding ballscrews to this mini lathe
11:22 AM perry_j1987: and keeping it around for some ops
11:23 AM perry_j1987: cause... the VFD blew on my big lathe lol suddenly realized it might be good to have a spare one around
11:24 AM roycroft: a spare vfd is cheaper than a spare lathe
11:25 AM roycroft: so jet finally got tables for my bandsaw, and have shipped one
11:25 AM roycroft: they still do not have table inserts, though
11:25 AM * roycroft wonders how many months he'll own his saw before he can use it
11:26 AM roycroft: it's been almost 3 months since i bought it
12:00 PM JT-Shop: hmm if I don't hear from the cat that purchased 2 air filter kits by tomorrow I'll refund his money and see if that gets his attention or not
12:01 PM * JT-Shop really needs to swap that store over to woocommerce
12:06 PM roycroft: jt-shop: you might look into the wp-vivid plugin for your wp sites
12:06 PM roycroft: it allows you to backup/restore sites easily, and also clone them
12:06 PM roycroft: you could develop your woocommerce site somewhere, and when it's fully tested, clone it over to your production site
12:17 PM JT-Shop: I've been using that since you told me about it :)
12:17 PM JT-Shop: good idea
12:35 PM roycroft: aah, i obviously had forgotten that i already told you about i
12:35 PM roycroft: t
12:36 PM roycroft: we use mainwp here, which is a nice tool for managing a large number of sites, but it's not worth getting for a single site or a site + dev site
12:36 PM roycroft: and i found that with some of the plugins we use, mainwp does not clone properly
12:36 PM roycroft: so i started using wp-vivid for those sites
12:36 PM roycroft: and i've been really happy with it
12:41 PM JT-Shop: I actually have a woocommerce test.spyderstore.com
12:43 PM JT-Shop: seems like it's somewhat done... just need to add wp-vivid
12:43 PM roycroft: also, add the cmp coming soon plugin to your dev sites
12:43 PM roycroft: you can block casual browsing to the site with it
12:44 PM JT-Shop: cool
12:44 PM roycroft: you will have to be logged into visit the site
12:44 PM roycroft: we do that on all development sites
12:44 PM JT-Shop: looks like my cart is broken in the test store... mess with that in the morning
12:48 PM JT-Shop: hmm I need find my login info for test.spyderstore.com lol
01:02 PM roycroft: has anyone here built a small injection molding machine?
01:16 PM * roycroft takes that as a "no" or a "i don't want to talk about it" :)
02:06 PM Tom_L: roycroft, kenneth maxon made one but i think his site is down and has been for a while
02:08 PM Tom_L: https://hackaday.com/tag/maxon/
02:08 PM Tom_L: i did find that
02:10 PM Tom_L: https://www.cnccookbook.com/molding-robot-parts-from-2-part-polyurethane-plastic/
02:20 PM roycroft: the wayback machine has a copy of his site
02:20 PM roycroft: thanks
02:36 PM Anubes: Hola
02:37 PM Tom_L: roycroft, he was a part of the seattlerobotics group back then
02:42 PM roycroft: i don't know that building an injection molding machine would make sense for me
02:42 PM roycroft: building the machine would be the easy part, actually
02:42 PM Tom_L: it may not have made sense to him either but he made one
02:42 PM roycroft: making the molds, not so easy
02:42 PM roycroft: i'll try not to get distracted thinkng about it, and continue to focus on my cnc router design
02:42 PM Tom_L: awww..
02:43 PM Tom_L: if you found his site you should poke around a bit
02:45 PM Tom_L: he had a well equipped shop
02:46 PM roycroft: yeah, i'll bookmark it
03:29 PM JT-Shop: hmm one more part to powder coat... I may not finish it today
04:00 PM Rab: "Words on walls"
04:01 PM Rab: oops, scrolled up...that was a comment on Hobby Lobby's wall decor.
04:09 PM JT-Shop: time to make some chicken crack
04:13 PM unterhaus_: how important is it to have double ball nuts on a cnc lathe? Seems like the mills all have it
04:14 PM unterhaus_: most of the lathe conversions I have seen don't
04:16 PM roycroft: lathes generally do not move in both directions during a single operation, whereas mills do
04:17 PM roycroft: so it's easier to compensate for any backlash on a lathe
04:23 PM JT-Shop: really depends on the shape your turning you "can" cut both directions
04:24 PM JT-Shop: I have one part that is recessed in the center with a nice radius on the edge
04:29 PM roycroft: it's probably more common to turn in both directions in the same operation on a cnc lathe than a manual lathe
04:29 PM roycroft: but it's still less common than on a mill
04:46 PM JT-Shop: can't say I've ever turned both directions on Samson the manual lathe
04:46 PM JT-Shop: I use a 1/4" round cutter for that part
04:47 PM JT-Shop: roycroft, do you have a link to cms coming soon? I can't find it anywhere
04:47 PM roycroft: oh, sorry
04:47 PM roycroft: it
04:48 PM roycroft: is cmp coming soon
04:48 PM roycroft: i must have typoed
04:48 PM roycroft: i do that a lot
04:48 PM roycroft: https://wordpress.org/plugins/cmp-coming-soon-maintenance/
04:49 PM roycroft: we have templates that we use when developing new sites
04:49 PM roycroft: that plugin is in every template
04:50 PM JT-Shop: thanks got it now
04:52 PM JT-Shop: http://www.test.spyderstore.com/
04:52 PM roycroft: it blocks me nicely :)
04:53 PM JT-Shop: so long as I'm logged in I can see the site pretty cool
04:53 PM roycroft: yes
04:54 PM roycroft: we used to develop sites in private address space
04:54 PM JT-Shop: thanks
04:54 PM roycroft: but when it came time to do a show and tell for the customer we'd have to walk them through setting up a proxy in their browser, and that was challenging, to say the least
04:54 PM roycroft: we moved to that plugin and started doing development in public space
04:54 PM roycroft: at first we would just turn the plugin off for a show and tell
04:55 PM roycroft: but then we got another plugin that generates a url for a temporary login without password, and we'd just give that url to the customer
04:55 PM roycroft: and keep the cmp coming soon page activated
04:55 PM roycroft: but yeah, that is one of the most useful plugins ever
05:05 PM unterhaus_: I drew something in solidworks and I want to make changes. Last time I changed the file it was a disaster
05:05 PM unterhaus_: maybe I should redraw
05:05 PM roycroft: or save a copy before you make the edit
05:06 PM unterhaus_: probably a good idea
05:06 PM Tom_L: definitely a good idea
05:07 PM roycroft: if i'm making a design change i usually check out a new git branch and work on the change there, then merge it back in when i'm done
05:07 PM roycroft: if i'm just making minor changes to a drawing or drawing set i make a tarball of the working directory before i start
05:08 PM roycroft: and nuke the tarball when i'm done, or restore the tarball if i screw things up
05:08 PM Tom_L: they taught us in catia to draw in such a way that edits come easy
05:08 PM roycroft: i'm learning how to do that in solidworks
05:08 PM Tom_L: every feature has it's own sketch and fillets etc are done on the solid
05:09 PM roycroft: i do some fillets/chamfers on the sketch, and someon the solid
05:09 PM Tom_L: it takes a bit longer but for large files & assemblies it ends up much easier
05:09 PM roycroft: it depends on what i'm doing
05:09 PM roycroft: i don't always make a new sketch for every feature, but i generally do
05:09 PM roycroft: i prefer rules of thumb to hard rules
05:10 PM Tom_L: and there are those engineers that bastardize drawings on purpose to make them difficult to read
05:10 PM Tom_L: i've seen a number of them
05:10 PM XXCoder: got example of that?
05:11 PM XXCoder: not surised on existance of, just curious how they would
05:11 PM roycroft: the purpose of an engineering drawing is to clarify, not obfuscate
05:11 PM Tom_L: drawings with dimensions referenced from stupid features
05:11 PM Tom_L: or lack of
05:11 PM Tom_L: having to do numerous calculations to figure out a dimension of a feature
05:12 PM Tom_L: drawing not matching the provided model
05:12 PM roycroft: this gets back to my belief that an engineer should be required to spend two years in the trades before being eligible for a degree
05:12 PM Tom_L: ie is the hole lofted or is it projected
05:12 PM jdh: how about an overall length spec that goes to the end of a taper, but there is a thread relief where the taper would have ended
05:12 PM XXCoder: tom geez
05:13 PM Tom_L: does the dimension follow the loft or the horizon
05:13 PM roycroft: it is hard to ascribe motive to those engineers though
05:13 PM Tom_L: horizon/water line
05:13 PM roycroft: some certainly are jerks who intentionally bastardize drawings
05:13 PM roycroft: some are just incompetent
05:14 PM Tom_L: it is well understood that waterline is a level plane
05:14 PM roycroft: as the saying goes: never ascribe to malice that which can be explained by mere incompetence
05:15 PM Tom_L: but to talk to them it could be either :)
05:15 PM roycroft: but spending two years in the trades would weed out the incompetents
05:15 PM roycroft: unless those two years were spent working for a relative
05:16 PM roycroft: it's the weekend!
05:16 PM * roycroft has two more fridays off
05:25 PM * JT-Shop uses global variables to link dimensions in sw it's so fun
05:25 PM Tom_L: do you use formula?
05:26 PM Tom_L: driven dimensions
05:26 PM Tom_L: global variables = table driven to me
05:27 PM JT-Shop: in the box where you put the dimension you just do =rise and it adds a global
05:27 PM JT-Shop: table driven it another subject and is much more powerful
05:27 PM Tom_L: ok that would be similar to formula
05:27 PM Tom_L: yes
05:28 PM JT-Shop: for example I'm making chicken stairs so I have a rise and run global and change one and they all change
05:28 PM Tom_L: yup
05:28 PM Tom_L: our instructor showed us a doll house model he did where he could change one dimension and resize the entire doll house
05:29 PM Tom_L: he liked to show off a bit and in turn took us on a tour of his department: reverse engineering
05:30 PM Tom_L: we got to see the metal printers & all the various laser scanners etc
05:30 PM roycroft: i use driven dimensions for some things
05:30 PM Tom_L: it was worth listening to him for that
05:30 PM roycroft: for things like my hardware storage boxes they are very useful
05:30 PM roycroft: i make 2"x2" boxes, 2"x3" boxes, 4"x4" boxes, etc.
05:30 PM roycroft: one drawing
05:30 PM roycroft: change variable values
05:31 PM roycroft: and i have another size
05:31 PM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/practice_drawings/Cylinder.jpg
05:31 PM Tom_L: that was spreadsheet driven
05:31 PM Tom_L: just for kicks
05:31 PM Tom_L: wasn't part of the course
05:32 PM JT-Shop: cool
05:32 PM roycroft: i'm trying to figure out what to do now
05:32 PM roycroft: there's a guy in town from whom i've purchased used computers before
05:32 PM roycroft: he's a really good guy - honest, fair, nice person overall
05:32 PM roycroft: he has a workstation for sale that might be useful for me
05:32 PM roycroft: i'd need to add a decent graphics card and more memory to it, but it is a good base
05:33 PM roycroft: the deal is, though, he has a sw2018 license that he's bundling with it
05:33 PM roycroft: for $1k - computer + sw2018 premium
05:33 PM roycroft: he said that if i buy it he'll log into the sw website while i'm there and transfer the owner info to me
05:34 PM roycroft: it's pretty tempting, but dassault discourage that
05:34 PM roycroft: they can't legally prevent him from doing it
05:34 PM JT-Shop: I don't like 2021 much so different I can't find anything lol
05:34 PM Tom_L: 2018 cloud based?
05:34 PM Tom_L: i'm sure 2021 was
05:34 PM roycroft: no, it's a perpetual host-based license
05:34 PM roycroft: and it's premium, as i said
05:34 PM JT-Shop: no it's not cloud
05:34 PM Tom_L: no?
05:34 PM roycroft: so it has all the fancy features
05:35 PM Tom_L: they did change the front end sometime back then
05:35 PM Tom_L: as did catia moved to the 3d experience
05:35 PM roycroft: 2018 would be a good year to upgrade to
05:35 PM roycroft: that's the minimum version for the online plugins like mcmaster
05:35 PM roycroft: they added a toolbox feature in 2018 that allows for that
05:36 PM JT-Shop: 2021 is similar but small things are different and at Revere it's not setup like how I work but I'm working on changing it for him
05:36 PM roycroft: 2012 also doesn't work well on windows 10
05:36 PM Tom_L: not much does
05:36 PM roycroft: newer versions do
05:36 PM roycroft: but i have to use win7 for my install
05:37 PM roycroft: and if i got this machine it will have solidcam installed
05:37 PM Tom_L: yeah i stalled out at win7 for my personal use
05:37 PM roycroft: so i'll have some actual cam software, for when the time comes
05:37 PM Tom_L: does it allow you to modify post?
05:37 PM Tom_L: that would be important to me
05:37 PM roycroft: i'm just concerned that dssault systemes might find a way to disable/break it
05:38 PM roycroft: i think so
05:38 PM roycroft: i know that vectric vcarve does
05:38 PM roycroft: and i'm still interested in that for my router, even if i get this newer verison of sw
05:38 PM roycroft: the postprocessor is just an xml file in vectric products
05:38 PM roycroft: and they have linuxcnc postprocessors bundled with the software already
05:39 PM Tom_L: from what i've seen i think alot of them are now
05:39 PM roycroft: i've never used solidcam so i don't know about how that works
05:39 PM roycroft: i'll have to think about this
05:40 PM roycroft: it's a pretty good deal, if the license transfer goes smoothly
05:40 PM roycroft: way better than $5k for the software + a computer
05:50 PM JT-Shop: wife bought some luvsome tuna treats for the cats but they turn their nose up at it so I'll see if my new outdoor rat cat likes it
05:51 PM Tom_L: picky cats
05:51 PM JT-Shop: 1 minute till the last part comes out of the powder coat kiln
05:55 PM roycroft: my cats always liked greenies
05:55 PM roycroft: the best treats ever
05:55 PM roycroft: besides tuna
06:01 PM roycroft: i think i'll wait to see how sw performs on my imac after i get the ssd installed
06:01 PM roycroft: which is due to arrive on monday, so probably the weekend after that
06:02 PM * JT-Shop calls it a day
06:05 PM andypugh: hey, skunkworks, you there?
06:08 PM andypugh: I am about to go, but I think it is worth trying a pair of and gates, anding the excitation quadrature with the output square wave. I think you would get two PWM signals, that could be low-passed, and the amplitude relationship would be like a resolver.
06:44 PM _unreal_: hello ladies gents... roycroft
06:44 PM _unreal_: heh
06:44 PM _unreal_: just got my extrusion in the mail
06:46 PM _unreal_: ?
06:48 PM roycroft: do drag chains generally work decently horizontally, or do they need to be mounted so they operate vertically?
06:54 PM Tom_L: doesn't matter much
06:55 PM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/Mill_Steel/Wiring/Y_Dragchain_Bottom.jpg
06:55 PM Tom_L: i did that to keep it from drooping
06:56 PM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/Mill_Steel/Wiring/X_Dragchain_Bottom.jpg
06:56 PM Tom_L: both x and y there
06:56 PM Tom_L: the first pic is the one on the right there
06:57 PM _unreal_: size matters roycroft thats not a sex joke its the truth when it comes to the size of the drag chain. small one's tend to have issues if they are on there side.
06:57 PM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/Mill_Steel/Wiring/X_Axis_full_left.jpg
06:57 PM Tom_L: and right side up
06:57 PM Tom_L: iirc those are 10 x 15
06:58 PM Tom_L: Z is bigger and wasn't added until i got the new spindle motor
06:58 PM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/Mill_Steel/Wiring/X_Axis_Dragchain.jpg
06:58 PM Tom_L: better pic of it
06:59 PM _unreal_: like I said size matters
07:00 PM roycroft: my intent is to size the drag chain properly, so that its full, but not over full
07:00 PM Tom_L: mine turned out about right considering it was the first time i'd used it
07:00 PM roycroft: but if i need to mount one sideways, i'm willing to get a larger one if it works better
07:00 PM roycroft: even if it's half empty
07:01 PM _unreal_: so +/- water, spindle, limits, probes,
07:01 PM roycroft: i may go back to my other idea for the x axis
07:01 PM Tom_L: the support on the Y one helped alot and gave it a decent place to mount
07:01 PM roycroft: which would allow me to mount the drag chain on the top of that axis
07:01 PM _unreal_: x and z motors
07:02 PM roycroft: that's the one that i would have to mount sideways with my current design
07:02 PM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/Mill_Steel/Spindle/Drag_Chain1.jpg
07:02 PM Tom_L: i used a larger one on Z
07:03 PM Tom_L: the precut wires were barely long enough but doesn't rub
07:03 PM Tom_L: i think i moved the vfd over a bit after that pic
07:05 PM roycroft: the alternate x axis i'm thinking about would cost me about $50 more, but it might be more rigid, and it would allow me to mount the drag chain on the top
07:05 PM Tom_L: on top, would it fill with dust?
07:08 PM roycroft: not if my extraction setup works properly :)
07:09 PM roycroft: i might mount it on the back side of the x
07:09 PM roycroft: that would actually keep the height down
07:20 PM * Lcvette[m] uploaded an image: (11KiB) < https://libera.ems.host/_matrix/media/r0/download/matrix.org/ecSgTwSDGXZseNwFquGKgvwD/image.png >
07:20 PM Lcvette[m]: you guys ever get this?
08:04 PM Lcvette[m]: pcw-home: ^^^ Any ideas? This is on a hp elite 8300 usdt core i5
08:04 PM roycroft: i think i'll order a couple meters of a size of drag chain that i'm sure will work somewhere on the machine, and experiment with it
08:04 PM roycroft: i'm certainly not going to do something silly like print my own drag chain
08:05 PM roycroft: i want this machine build to be finished this year!
08:10 PM Tom_L: Lcvette[m], dunno... is the servo thread too fast?
08:11 PM Tom_L: roycroft, for stepper wires/limits per axis that 10x15 was about right for me
08:12 PM Tom_L: roycroft, if you can, get a variety of end mounts
08:12 PM roycroft: i'm looking at some 15x30
08:13 PM Tom_L: should be way big enough if not overkill
08:13 PM roycroft: i'll have coolant lines going to the spindle
08:13 PM Tom_L: yeah that's true
08:13 PM roycroft: i may be able to use smaller on the z
08:13 PM roycroft: but i'm thinking if i get 2m of 15x30 that will probably work well for x
08:14 PM roycroft: and that may be the right size for y as well
08:14 PM roycroft: 10x20 might be fine for z
08:14 PM Tom_L: i could double check what i have but i thought the smaller was 10x15
08:14 PM roycroft: and _unreal_ has a point that if i decide to mount it on its side, a larger size might support itself better
08:15 PM roycroft: i think i can mount it upright, though
08:16 PM roycroft: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AUB24VC/
08:16 PM roycroft: that looks like a good product
08:16 PM roycroft: the individual link caps can be opened, so it will be easy to maintain
08:17 PM roycroft: and the price is nice
08:17 PM roycroft: too nice, actually - if i get 2m i have to spend another $1.03 to get free shipping
08:17 PM Tom_L: i gotta wander out there anyway.. i'll look
08:18 PM roycroft: and sweet
08:19 PM roycroft: amazon just started a promo where i get an extra 1% cash back until mid-february when i use my amazon amex card
08:22 PM Tom_L: i used 10 x 15 and 18 x 25
08:24 PM Tom_L: https://www.amazon.com/Plastic-Machine-Carrier-Ted-Lele/dp/B074S1NQ2W/ref=sr_1_3?crid=2W2T0AUVEHV9M&keywords=18+x+25+drag+chain&qid=1643335717&s=hi&sprefix=18+x+25+drag+chain%2Ctools%2C111&sr=1-3
08:27 PM Tom_L: but you probably want semi closed
08:30 PM Tom_L: i've got a full roll of the 18 x 25 plus a bit left over
08:30 PM Tom_L: from the previous roll
08:32 PM roycroft: 18x25 would probably work, but 15x30 is not much different
08:33 PM roycroft: both have the same fill space
08:33 PM roycroft: 450mm^2
08:33 PM Tom_L: yup
08:33 PM Tom_L: i got a couple sizes to try and decided the smaller was fine for my axis
08:34 PM roycroft: 10x15 might get a little tight
08:34 PM roycroft: but i'll see
08:34 PM Tom_L: i didn't have much to put in mine
08:35 PM roycroft: i'll get the 15x30, and if it seems way too big, it's not a huge investment
08:35 PM Tom_L: i don't think it'll be too big if you have waterlines etc to run
08:36 PM unterhaus_: Tom_L there is no support on that drag chain to keep it from drooping?
08:37 PM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/Mill_Steel/Wiring/X_Axis_Dragchain.jpg
08:37 PM unterhaus_: I should get a closed one for my lathe
08:37 PM Tom_L: no not on that one
08:37 PM Tom_L: it does fine
08:37 PM Tom_L: and that's the smaller stuff
08:38 PM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/Mill_Steel/Wiring/Y_Dragchain_Bottom.jpg
08:38 PM Tom_L: i put that small plate under the Y and the rest stays just fine
08:38 PM unterhaus_: chips just go everywhere on a lathe
08:39 PM Tom_L: that is covered with neoprene
08:39 PM Tom_L: not much gets in there

08:41 PM Lcvette[m]: Tom_L: i don't think so, the latency test is great on this pc, ~15000
08:41 PM Tom_L: i added those because it would catch on the rail edge
08:41 PM Tom_L: Lcvette[m], i dunno then
08:41 PM Tom_L: pcw would

08:43 PM unterhaus_: Lcvette[m] I would go slower on the thread timing unless there is a very good reason not to
08:44 PM Tom_L: yeah, it's worth a try
09:26 PM perry_j1987: Tom_L were you the one looking at sewing machine brushless motors?
10:33 PM Tom_L: perry_j1987, no
10:33 PM Tom_L: naybe initially but decided against them
10:34 PM perry_j1987: ah
10:34 PM perry_j1987: i was just looking at them again this evening
10:34 PM Tom_L: quite some time ago someone was and fried the controller so i decided i'd go a different route
10:35 PM perry_j1987: i just ordered ballscrews for this mini lathe
10:35 PM perry_j1987: going to finally get it setup as a chucker
10:35 PM perry_j1987: and i know the next upgrade will prob be the motor
10:37 PM perry_j1987: im going to be able to get 6 inches of travel out of this thing initially
10:37 PM Tom_L: i wasn't interested in a high speed spindle, i wanted low end torque also
10:37 PM perry_j1987: later on i can upgrade the x axis further and get far more
10:39 PM perry_j1987: i thought they were suppose to have low end torque

10:40 PM Tom_L: that is very similar to the one i got
10:42 PM perry_j1987: simple to control with linuxcnc?
10:43 PM Tom_L: mine uses analog in so yes
10:43 PM Tom_L: 0-10v
10:43 PM perry_j1987: nice
10:43 PM Tom_itx: https://glockcnc.com/taig-sherline-motor-upgrade/
10:44 PM Tom_L: the one i got was 110v in
10:44 PM Tom_L: the one i posted says 220v
10:44 PM perry_j1987: know a guy who bought a headstock from glock months ago still hasnt come in
10:44 PM Tom_L: it did take a while to get it
10:44 PM Tom_L: i kept on his ass
10:45 PM Tom_L: he probably orders them on demand
10:45 PM Tom_L: if you google his location it's a residential house
10:47 PM Tom_L: i spoke to him a few times on the phone
10:47 PM pcw-home: Lcvette[m]: Have you disabled IRQ coalescing (its described in the hm2_eth manual page)
10:50 PM perry_j1987: he has a nice 5c headstock and is developing a collet closer for it right now
10:50 PM perry_j1987: it would be a nice little headstock
10:50 PM perry_j1987: once thats all said and done
10:52 PM perry_j1987: time for bed for me now though
10:52 PM perry_j1987: ty for the talk Tom_L
10:52 PM perry_j1987: cya on the flip side
10:53 PM Tom_L: yup
10:54 PM roycroft: tom_l: your z axis motor has a double gear
10:54 PM roycroft: what's on the left side? an encoder?
