12:38 AM mrec: https://i.snipboard.io/1tJa5w.jpg
12:47 AM mrec: 750w vs 1200w bldc motor
12:47 AM XXCoder: heavy duty
12:47 AM XXCoder: probably weighs more than my cnc roter lol
12:47 AM mrec: Im surprised the motor really fits into it ... hard on the edge but it fits
12:47 AM mrec: even the fan has enough space
12:47 AM XXCoder: honestly as long as it has standard mounting it should work as long as theres clearance for rest of it lol
12:49 AM XXCoder: awesome
12:49 AM mrec: my modified freecad version is also awesome
12:49 AM XXCoder: yeah? whats you mod
12:49 AM mrec: what took me like a week before can be done within a 30-60 minutes
12:50 AM mrec: I reworked the cam module a lot it's much faster than the upstream version
12:51 AM XXCoder: yeah? pushed it up yet?
12:52 AM mrec: I'm not pushing anything anymore because it seems like the ideas how to do things differ too much
12:53 AM XXCoder: oh too bad
12:53 AM mrec: the drilling updates didn't make it into it because another developer wanted to prioritize his update
12:53 AM mrec: but it took him like a half year to do that I don't have so much time
12:57 AM XXCoder: oh well lol
12:57 AM XXCoder: freecad is awesome but needs a lot of work
12:58 AM mrec: yes it does...
12:58 AM mrec: many issues at many places
12:58 AM mrec: but I'm fine with it .. I can get things done with it quickly now
01:05 AM XXCoder: thats worth it
01:05 AM XXCoder: i want to work on my cnc but impossible
01:05 AM XXCoder: no budget to build shop. and house have many more important issues
01:05 AM XXCoder: like broken sewer
01:47 AM mrec: my biggest concern is that I'm new with all that (ok now I'm working with CNC for 1 1/2 years)
01:48 AM mrec: I don't want to spend my money on wrong items
01:48 AM XXCoder: that short?
01:48 AM XXCoder: thought you was here for few years now
01:48 AM mrec: yes
01:49 AM mrec: I don't want to break expensive equipment :-)
01:49 AM mrec: budget equipment is okay things can be replaced easily
01:49 AM mrec: seems like I'm over that now I can just do things and don't break things anymore
01:50 AM XXCoder: stop breaking things? never
01:50 AM XXCoder: just less
01:50 AM mrec: well maybe just less yes
01:50 AM XXCoder: whats important is be careful and dry run stuff
01:50 AM mrec: every now and then there are small issues but I can just pause when it happens
01:51 AM mrec: no more drilling into the milling table at least :-)
01:52 AM XXCoder: :D
01:53 AM mrec: the accuracy when milling aluminium is just incredible
01:53 AM mrec: I'm doing 26 SMD feeders now they're basically all the same now
01:53 AM XXCoder: on my last job, my worse was +0.0005" -0 tol
01:53 AM mrec: the first run wasn't nearly as good this is the second run correcting all the mistakes I made during the first run
01:55 AM mrec: my 26 items have an accuracy of 0.1mm right now (so 0.004)
01:55 AM mrec: mostly it's 0.002" (I can't measure more accurate, so possibly some are more accurate)
01:56 AM XXCoder: as long as it works within your tol needs its great
02:01 AM mrec: I think my tolerance is somewhat around 0.02"
02:01 AM mrec: I'm far from that so it's all okay
02:01 AM XXCoder: .02" is just huge lol
02:02 AM XXCoder: if you can do 10% of that youre doing amazing well
02:03 AM XXCoder: wrist breaker https://youtu.be/9mUNHFiCaHE
02:05 AM mrec: yes 0.02" is hugh it would be the worst case. that's not the target for mass production 0.1mm is just fine for me
02:05 AM XXCoder: indeed
02:05 AM XXCoder: as long as you define tol needs well and mill to meet that you will do just fine :D
03:22 AM Deejay: moin
03:27 AM t4nk_freenode: howdy, partner
04:56 AM Tom_L: morning
04:56 AM Tom_L: mrec, did that driver come with any directions for modbus?
05:03 AM mrec: Tom_L: I did not check it yet, I only set up the driver to make the motor spin manually
05:08 AM Tom_L: have you tried the new 1.2 kw motor?
05:08 AM mrec: not yet but I guess it should work :D
05:08 AM mrec: I sent my wife to a machining shop to extend the bore of the pulley
05:08 AM Tom_L: curious what rpm you get
05:08 AM Tom_L: 15mm?
05:08 AM mrec: now there's no way back anymore for this week
05:10 AM mrec: 14mm
05:10 AM Tom_L: yeah i was thinking mine was 15 but it may be 14
05:11 AM Tom_L: i bored mine out myself and broached the key slot
05:11 AM mrec: if I wouldn't want an ATC spindle I'd get the same one for the mill
05:11 AM mrec: I need to see how I can make the keyway
05:12 AM mrec: I have this manual press here it should work but I will need a tool for it
05:13 AM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/rotary/Broach/Broach2.jpg
05:13 AM mrec: more like a flywheel punch that's what I have
05:13 AM Tom_L: 5mm broach iirc
05:15 AM Tom_L: http://tom-itx.no-ip.biz:81/~webpage/cnc/Mill_Steel/Spindle/Pulley4.jpg
05:25 AM JT-Cave: morning
05:35 AM t4nk_freenode: hi
12:06 PM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
12:13 PM roycroft: the sun is shining today
12:13 PM roycroft: a refreshing change, for sure
01:07 PM XXCoder: yep sunny here also, but with some doom clouds lol
01:08 PM XXCoder: qwaqasza
01:08 PM XXCoder: well you now know my backup password lol
01:11 PM roycroft: i thought that was your cat's password
01:12 PM XXCoder: lol
01:21 PM Tom_L: cats don't need passwords, they just do as they like
01:21 PM XXCoder: time to hire cat for secure site cracking
01:23 PM roycroft: what if they are trying to hide the secret location of a trove of cat toys and catnip?
03:31 PM XXCoder: well good news for me today
03:32 PM XXCoder: battery and alt is both good
03:45 PM * JT-Shop is not too happy with lock rabbet joint on 1/2" poplar... the bit left after you cut the dado in the sides is rather weak and breaks easy
03:46 PM JT-Shop: might be ok with plywood sides...
03:47 PM JT-Shop: my cat hordes bottle caps
03:47 PM XXCoder: rabbit meh
03:47 PM XXCoder: should use other kinds, if youre cnc you can make quite strong and complex ones
03:47 PM XXCoder: *using
03:50 PM JT-Shop: if it's never seen, no point in making it fancy
03:50 PM JT-Shop: dovetail would have been a much better choice for poplar, easy to cut and strong
03:50 PM XXCoder: yeah though im focusing on strength than fancyness
03:51 PM JT-Shop: and I'm focusing on developing my wood working skills
03:53 PM JT-Shop: I guess it's time to make a Paul Sellers dovetail jig
03:58 PM Tom_L: JT-Shop, did you get your new cutter to replace the one that was screwed up?
03:58 PM JT-Shop: yes
03:59 PM Tom_L: i assume the new one works good?
03:59 PM JT-Shop: yep, fits like it should
04:00 PM Tom_L: did they have an excuse?
04:01 PM Tom_L: maybe i should fix my botched buster install this evening
04:01 PM JT-Shop: no
04:03 PM solarwind: MIG gun tips should all be interchangeable between brands as long as the threads are the same, right?
04:03 PM JT-Shop: are you using the livecd from linuxcnc?
04:03 PM XXCoder: JT-Shop: thats awesomeon cutter
04:03 PM solarwind: I mean, other than special alloys/coatings, they're all just a piece of copper with a thread and a hole through it
04:11 PM Tom_L: JT-Shop, me? i planned to
04:12 PM enleth: solarwind: yes, from my experience, no-name replacement tips fit anything I've come across, both chinese no-name guns and high-end branded stuff
04:12 PM enleth: there seems to be some degree of standardization in the industry
04:13 PM JT-Shop: Tom_L, that's what the guy is using that has issues with the file manager
04:14 PM Tom_L: well that's what i used (i think) before on that install but i'd been playing with RTAI on it and now it won't switch back
04:14 PM Tom_L: i may have deleted something i shouldn't have... who knows
04:14 PM JT-Shop: ops
04:14 PM JT-Shop: time to make some chicken crack
04:14 PM Tom_L: it's just a test pc anyway
04:17 PM solarwind: enleth thanks. I have an Everlast 253DPi which came with an "AK36" gun that takes M8 thread tips
04:21 PM CaptHindsight[m]: solarwind: hows the welding going?
04:23 PM CaptHindsight[m]: also bring in sponsorship, LCD screens that are in front of you during the workout
04:26 PM * JT-Shop goes out to the other shop and sees if he can layout and cut a dovetail in the leftover scraps
04:34 PM solarwind: CaptHindsight[m] I've almost mastered the black magic of welding brass
04:34 PM solarwind: Yes, you heard that righty, the dirty cast alloy with exploding zinc in it
04:35 PM solarwind: I broke one of those solid brass ground clamps in half and I brazed(?)/welded(?) it back together using A2 aluminum bronze
04:35 PM solarwind: I love AC with ~10% electrode positive balance for just about everything except steel
04:36 PM solarwind: I have to do some solid research into the underlying physics of what's actually happening when it's "cleaning" and what kind of oxides/material it's actually removing or not removing from the surface
04:37 PM solarwind: It definitely alters the appearance of the surface of any metal and makes it look whiter. I don't know if that means it's "cleaning" it down to pure base metal or what exactly but it looks super useful
04:38 PM solarwind: Also pulse on pulse settings and advanced waveforms help a lot to agitate the puddle or filler so it wets out if it's being otherwise too stubborn
04:39 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y1G7BE6usaM
04:41 PM CaptHindsight[m]: for some reason welding popped into my mind today
04:42 PM solarwind: CaptHindsight[m] yeah I was going to build one of those
04:42 PM solarwind: Someone on here said their sister(?) has one
04:42 PM solarwind: My biggest question is the retracting tungsten
04:42 PM solarwind: Why does it need to retract?
04:43 PM solarwind: I've been making my own gas lenses with very fine stainless steel mesh, and I spot weld them together by using the TIG torch as a resistance welder
04:44 PM solarwind: They're sooooo thin and fragile that anything more than a few hundred milliseconds at 100A or so vapourizes them. But I've been getting excellent results. Like even better gas flow properties than the ones you can buy because there's no grommet or anything. It's just two layers of SS mesh with a hole in the middle
04:45 PM CaptHindsight[m]: solarwind: what were the big sheets you were cutting, bending and welding for?
04:45 PM solarwind: I forgot, what big sheets?
04:46 PM CaptHindsight[m]: months ago, when you were setting up the shop to weld, braze and got the big shear/brake for
04:46 PM solarwind: Oh, the shear and press brake were given to me by a friend.
04:46 PM CaptHindsight[m]: or was this all just selftraing?
04:46 PM solarwind: Just a hobby
04:46 PM solarwind: All of this
04:46 PM CaptHindsight[m]: ah, just wondered if it was for some project
04:47 PM solarwind: Oh well yeah I do a lot of very very random things
04:47 PM * Tom_L wishes his hobby funding was that fat
04:47 PM CaptHindsight[m]: did you guys get any spring yet there?
04:47 PM solarwind: Yeah, it's >= 10ÂșC but very windy
04:48 PM solarwind: I was changing the oil in my car the other day and the wind just blew the oil all over me
04:48 PM solarwind: I've never had that happen before
04:48 PM CaptHindsight[m]: windy here as well
04:48 PM solarwind: also all over my tools and it almost feels like the carcinogenic used motor oil is better at cleaning dirt off of tools than clean oil/kerosene
04:49 PM solarwind: Maybe it's the mild acidity of it combined with it being hot
04:50 PM solarwind: disgusting, but the yellow in the dewalt tools really stood out looking like new when I wiped it off
04:51 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Tom_L: maybe if you lived in Canada you'd have more hobby cash
04:52 PM CaptHindsight[m]: solarwind: are USians still given Canadian citizenship if they farm up north?
04:52 PM solarwind: I didn't even know that was a thing
04:53 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://canadianvisa.org/blog/jobs/immigrate-to-canada-through-its-farming-industry
04:53 PM solarwind: Yeah I had no idea lol
04:54 PM CaptHindsight[m]: might be my chance as I get older and dumber
04:55 PM solarwind: Yeah our healthcare's got your back
04:55 PM CaptHindsight[m]: drone and bot based farming
05:01 PM tcurdt: why can't mach3 ethernet boards be used directly with linuxcnc ... is there a comparison of the protocols somewhere?
05:01 PM CaptHindsight[m]: tcurdt: it comes down to buffered over USB vs realtime
05:01 PM tcurdt: CaptHindsight[m] I am talking about ethernet based cards
05:02 PM CaptHindsight[m]: in the case of Ethernet it comes down to where motion is synchronized
05:03 PM CaptHindsight[m]: LCNC keeps tabs on the motion every ~1mS over ethernet
05:03 PM tcurdt: and mach3 doesn't do that?
05:04 PM CaptHindsight[m]: are you talking about something like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/323575577650
05:04 PM CaptHindsight[m]: these may be reloaded with LCNC firmware to work with LCNC
05:05 PM tcurdt: right ... but I am trying to understand why that is required ... in then end it's a network protocol the cards use to communicate
05:05 PM tcurdt: and I am wondering how those are different
05:05 PM CaptHindsight[m]: LCNC does all the motion planning in a PC (x86 or ARM)
05:05 PM tcurdt: I know
05:07 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Mach3 buffer motion over USB or Ethernet
05:07 PM tcurdt: but how different does mach3 work that I cannot just write the network integration and talk to a random card like this https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002664418218.html (just an example)
05:07 PM tcurdt: mach3 buffers over ethernet ... on the PC?
05:07 PM CaptHindsight[m]: so it works with open loop applications
05:08 PM CaptHindsight[m]: i haven't looked at it until now, but it looks like that given the limited number of parts on that board
05:09 PM tcurdt: but linux cnc also works with open loop applications ... there are parallel BOBs that drive open loop systems
05:09 PM tcurdt: so that cannot be significant difference
05:09 PM CaptHindsight[m]: yes, but not over USB
05:09 PM tcurdt: forget USB :)
05:10 PM tcurdt: I am talking about ethernet cards :)
05:10 PM CaptHindsight[m]: it will generate steps in the PC's processor and output steps at the LPT port
05:10 PM CaptHindsight[m]: in the case of LCNC and Ethernet the steps are generated in an FPGA
05:11 PM CaptHindsight[m]: PC sends position into the the FPGA over Ethernet and the FPGA outputs steps
05:12 PM tcurdt: I thought the FPGA card would just synchronize the steps
05:12 PM CaptHindsight[m]: let me find a diagram
05:12 PM tcurdt: that would mean the way it works would be totally different between LPT and ethernet
05:13 PM CaptHindsight[m]: yes, with LCNC it is different
05:13 PM CaptHindsight[m]: between LPT and Ethernet
05:14 PM CaptHindsight[m]: http://wiki.linuxcnc.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?EMC_Components
05:15 PM tcurdt: wow - that is great ... thx for finding that link
05:16 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://wiki.linuxcnc.org/uploads/EMC_Control_LG.gif
05:17 PM CaptHindsight[m]: with LCNC over Ethernet what is in the Axis1 and Axis N boxes are in the FPGA
05:19 PM CaptHindsight[m]: with LCNC and a LPT port everything except the motor drives are in the PC
05:21 PM tcurdt: the ethernet case somewhat reminds me of klipper ... I am wondering if that's wrong
05:21 PM tcurdt: there also the gcode interpreter is on the PC
05:21 PM CaptHindsight[m]: tcurdt: https://forum.linuxcnc.org/18-computer/44828-remora-ethernet-nvem-cnc-board?start=110#239799
05:21 PM tcurdt: but the realtime stepping happens on the boards
05:22 PM CaptHindsight[m]: ^^ project for firmware for LCNC over Ethernet using some STM32 boards
05:22 PM tcurdt: CaptHindsight[m] I know - I've even posted on that thread already :)
05:22 PM tcurdt: but I'd like to understand why a firmware change is even necessary
05:23 PM tcurdt: I was wondering why linux cnc couldn't just speak the mach3 protocol
05:23 PM tcurdt: and then ALL mach3 cards would work
05:23 PM CaptHindsight[m]: tcurdt: I believe that Klipper has the interpreter, planner, step gens all in the STM32
05:23 PM Tom_L: that would be just..... ewwww
05:23 PM tcurdt: CaptHindsight[m] no
05:24 PM CaptHindsight[m]: mach3 is a fork of LCNC for windows
05:24 PM tcurdt: oh really? I didn't know that
05:24 PM CaptHindsight[m]: closed source fork from nearly 20 years ago
05:25 PM CaptHindsight[m]: they both started from EMC , a project at NIST
05:25 PM Tom_L: you used to actually be able to find that code too but i dunno if you can now
05:26 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://www.nist.gov/publications/enhanced-machine-controller-emc-open-architecture-controller-machine-tools
05:26 PM tcurdt: what was the license then?
05:26 PM CaptHindsight[m]: LCNC used to be called EMC until a software co decided to hijack the name
05:27 PM tcurdt: anyway ... but that makes me wonder even more why LCNC couldn't talk mach3 protocol (over ethernet)
05:27 PM tcurdt: unless they completely changed the underlying system
05:28 PM CaptHindsight[m]: because the LCNC devs don't want to
05:28 PM CaptHindsight[m]: but nothing is stopping you
05:28 PM tcurdt: well, there will be a reason why they don't want to - and I am after that reason :)
05:29 PM CaptHindsight[m]: many see it like helping your uncle that charges your family for dinner at Thanksgiving
05:29 PM tcurdt: I really hope it's a technical reason instead
05:29 PM CaptHindsight[m]: if mach3 was open source it might be another story
05:30 PM CaptHindsight[m]: LCNC works fine without any Mach3 designed hardware
05:30 PM tcurdt: that's not a great argument
05:31 PM CaptHindsight[m]: and your uncle taunts you while you eat
05:31 PM CaptHindsight[m]: up to you to decide what is a good or bad argument
05:31 PM tcurdt: by supporting mach3 hardware you wouldn't help the uncle
05:31 PM tcurdt: rather the opposite
05:32 PM tcurdt: anyway
05:32 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Linuxcnc supports EtherCat, with some drama
05:32 PM tcurdt: what's the drama there?
05:32 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Ethercat has copyright and trademark concerns
05:33 PM CaptHindsight[m]: they are very controlling of even using the term EtherCat
05:33 PM CaptHindsight[m]: what is the benefit of LCNC supporting a Mach3 Ethernet card? And it does with remora as you already know.
05:33 PM tcurdt: fuck patents
05:34 PM Tom_L: that's what china says
05:34 PM CaptHindsight[m]: you just reflash the Mach3 card
05:35 PM tcurdt: Tom_L there is a difference between hardware and software patents IMO .. but let's not start that discussion :)
05:36 PM CaptHindsight[m]: where is the ethernet protocol for the Mach3 cards?
05:37 PM JT-Shop: mark tree has ethernet cards?
05:38 PM tcurdt: CaptHindsight[m] it's not about "just reflashing" but finding out why the flashing is necessary
05:39 PM CaptHindsight[m]: JT-Shop: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002664418218.html
05:39 PM CaptHindsight[m]: tcurdt: no public Mach3 Ethernet protocol for someone to mess with
05:39 PM JT-Shop: interesting...
05:40 PM JT-Shop: I don't see a fpga on that card unless the yellow chip is one
05:40 PM CaptHindsight[m]: tcurdt: also https://forum.linuxcnc.org/27-driver-boards/44422-colorcnc-colorlight-5a-75e-5a-75b-as-fpga-controller-board
05:40 PM tcurdt: CaptHindsight[m] I know ... still doesn't answer the question
05:42 PM CaptHindsight[m]: tcurdt: no good enough mind readers yet for a closed protocol
05:43 PM tcurdt: CaptHindsight[m] I've reverse engineered more than just one protocol ... nothing to do with mind reading ... also besides the point
05:43 PM JT-Shop: some folks just don't understand how open source projects work... if you want something you figure it out
05:44 PM CaptHindsight[m]: tcurdt: nothing preventing you
05:44 PM JT-Shop: exactly
05:45 PM CaptHindsight[m]: tcurdt: other just aren't intersted
05:46 PM CaptHindsight[m]: why? personal preference
05:47 PM tcurdt: CaptHindsight[m] if others wouldn't care Remora wouldn't exist
05:47 PM CaptHindsight[m]: I'll volunteer to write a LCNC patch for $100K for mach3 Ethernet cards
05:48 PM CaptHindsight[m]: the money is just for entertainment not the work
05:48 PM JT-Shop: I want to come to that party
05:48 PM CaptHindsight[m]: tcurdt: so Remora exists, problem solved that way
05:49 PM Tom_L: the yellow chip is likely the culprit that's why they hid it
05:49 PM CaptHindsight[m]: ah i didn't see it because it was yellow, cleverly hidden in plain sight
05:50 PM Tom_L: the rest is just glue
05:52 PM Tom_L: JT-Shop, that or con somebody else into believing they need it just as bad as you :)
05:53 PM JT-Shop: white wash the fence heh
05:55 PM JT-Shop: well poplar is too soft to make a good dovetail, I made one but it looks like a 3rd grader made it
05:55 PM CaptHindsight[m]: I think that for $500K I would open source Mach3 and 4 if given the source under GPL
05:56 PM JT-Shop: I wouldn't spend a minute working on any cnc software that runs in windblows
05:57 PM Tom_L: no but it has to exhist
05:58 PM Tom_L: makes linuxcnc look all that much better
06:11 PM * JT-Shop wanders inside
06:11 PM CaptHindsight[m]: JT-Shop: https://warp9td.com/index.php/documentation/doc-ess#Connectors
09:26 PM acer is now known as _unreal_
09:28 PM skunkworks: https://photos.app.goo.gl/xkwiTDsAdSv2kX8o8
09:29 PM _unreal_: ahhhh?
09:29 PM skunkworks: I always wonder why I never have time...
09:30 PM Tom_L: bored?
09:31 PM skunkworks: too good of a deal
09:31 PM Tom_L: you bought it that way?
09:33 PM Tom_L: don't let CaptHindsight[m] see it, he'd be over hopping the engine up
09:33 PM skunkworks: I bought it a lot worse..
09:34 PM Tom_L: out of HS i worked for a guy that made his living that way
09:35 PM Tom_L: having any trouble with parts nowdays?
09:36 PM Tom_L: her sis had her honda in the shop for over 6mo waiting on parts
09:36 PM Tom_L: i kinda question the shop a bit on that...
09:37 PM skunkworks: no - not so far.. Ebay and junk yards
09:37 PM Tom_L: yeah, the shop has to go new..
09:37 PM skunkworks: https://photos.app.goo.gl/8uU8oocLP6HbxoE16
09:38 PM Tom_L: didn't screw up the frame?
09:38 PM skunkworks: so far - it looks like the fender support was the only thing that got bent. Replaced it
09:39 PM skunkworks: https://photos.app.goo.gl/94jTQfBsVFuMxKue7
09:39 PM skunkworks: https://photos.app.goo.gl/zJHrB29pjauV7QCN9
09:40 PM skunkworks: I am probably going to have 4k in it.
09:40 PM skunkworks: or so
09:40 PM Tom_L: not bad
09:40 PM skunkworks: As long as there isn't any big suprises.
09:41 PM skunkworks: eh - I can part it out and make out ;)
09:41 PM Tom_L: i was lightly rearended once and some things didn't show up until later
09:41 PM skunkworks: https://photos.app.goo.gl/zvCPLE2JEdkfndqQ7
09:42 PM Tom_L: tranny pan leak, radiator mounts cracked and leaked later...
