02:43 AM mrec: thorhian[m]1: also take care about obstacles :-)
02:46 AM mrec: freecad would have a problem to clear following: https://i.snipboard.io/BgExKu.jpg
02:47 AM mrec: this all requires some more studying of opencascade to make it more efficient
03:39 AM Tom_L: pere, so armhf should be able to be built on say amd64 etc
03:41 AM pere: Tom_L: yes, using a qemu trick.
03:42 AM pere: basicly telling linux to run all arm binaries using qemu
03:42 AM Tom_L: that would be cool
03:52 AM pere: Tom_L: sadly I could not find a recipe, so one would have to figure out how to use it by testing and reading the code. lack time and disk space to do that at the moment.
04:00 AM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
04:00 AM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
04:00 AM Tom_L: doesn't look like arm platform is a huge priority atm anyway but it could become so in the future

07:12 AM JT-Cave: http://buildbot.linuxcnc.org/
07:13 AM JT-Cave: you would need to change the packages list
07:13 AM JT-Cave: the only problem is the deb is too old to know what a 7i96s is...
07:15 AM roscogamer[m]: oh so thats what the update is for
07:15 AM roscogamer[m]: i thought it was a update to 2.9
07:15 AM roscogamer[m]: instead of a adition to it
07:15 AM JT-Cave: what are you talking about?
07:16 AM roscogamer[m]: there was talk in here that they were working on 2.9
07:16 AM roscogamer[m]: to have it reconize the 7i69s

07:16 AM roscogamer[m]: wait
07:17 AM roscogamer[m]: so this is a beta of sorts then

07:30 AM JT-Cave: you need debian 11 or newer for linuxcnc 2.9 because it uses python 3
07:30 AM JT-Cave: I recommend debian 12
07:30 AM MariusAlksnys[m]: * This can be related to wayland or some specifics in Linux Mint Debian Edition.
07:30 AM MariusAlksnys[m]: I am having hard time with this.
07:30 AM MariusAlksnys[m]: It was great when it worked earlier on my Debian systems
07:30 AM roscogamer[m]: so that means usb install
07:30 AM roscogamer[m]: im guessing
07:30 AM JT-Cave: aye
07:31 AM roscogamer[m]: thats mildly annoying
07:31 AM JT-Cave: did you visit the first link I posted
07:31 AM roscogamer[m]: ye
07:32 AM roscogamer[m]: do i need the ethernet one or the no ethernet one
07:34 AM JT-Cave: if you mean on my page the Mesa Ehternet Cards yes you have to do that after installing Debian and LinuxCNC
07:34 AM * roscogamer[m] uploaded an image: (9KiB) < https://libera.ems.host/_matrix/media/r0/download/jauriarts.org/eHPxkZhvRPJbQhRdJlYCzibx/unknown.png >
07:34 AM roscogamer[m]: oh its 2 diferent installs
07:34 AM roscogamer[m]: so first debian 13
07:34 AM roscogamer[m]: then debian 13 ethernet
07:34 AM JT-Cave: you start at the top of the page and install Debian first
07:35 AM roscogamer[m]: ahh
07:35 AM JT-Cave: debian 12 or 13, on this pc I had to use debian 13 because my video card is not known by older versions
07:35 AM roscogamer[m]: then the version i pick i take all the once below with the same version number?
07:35 AM JT-Cave: yup
07:36 AM JT-Cave: maybe I should change the layout for that page...
07:36 AM roscogamer[m]: im using a nuc does that change anything
07:36 AM roscogamer[m]: ye its nida confusing
07:36 AM JT-Cave: what is a nuc?
07:37 AM roscogamer[m]: id do it like this... (full message at https://libera.ems.host/_matrix/media/r0/download/libera.chat/1e6318a83e5de40553015814d2653dad684cba37)

08:02 AM roscogamer[m]: witch i pick tho
08:07 AM Tom_L: JT-Cave, i might have left all the installs grouped together like you originally had it, just adding the silly names beside debian but either way works
08:08 AM Tom_L: it might seem the 'Install LinuxCNC' & 'Mesa Ethernet Cards' are all the same
08:08 AM Tom_L: for the most part they are..
08:09 AM * roscogamer[m] uploaded an image: (10KiB) < https://libera.ems.host/_matrix/media/r0/download/jauriarts.org/TeAjvKRfRmfwcIkeuGUJEoib/unknown.png >

10:08 AM JT-Cave: usually I paste at the end of bashrc but never between if fi
10:08 AM roscogamer[m]: ahh oke
10:10 AM JT-Shop: sometimes I get in a rush and forget to show things that are obvious to me only but not someone new to debian thanks for pointing that out
10:11 AM JT-Shop: wow my 10x10x10 cube it very close to 10mm in all directions

10:25 AM JT-Shop: you must have skipped installing Debian 13
10:26 AM roscogamer[m]: no?
10:26 AM JT-Shop: yep
10:26 AM roscogamer[m]: but i followed the steps on the wep pages
10:26 AM JT-Shop: you skipped a step for sure
10:27 AM roscogamer[m]: were whould that step be then
10:27 AM roscogamer[m]: must have looked it over
10:27 AM JT-Shop: the bottom of https://gnipsel.com/linuxcnc/debian-13.html
10:27 AM roscogamer[m]: oh
10:28 AM roscogamer[m]: well i indeed missed that
10:28 AM JT-Shop: oh no I have the wrong info
10:28 AM JT-Shop: that should be Trixie
10:29 AM JT-Shop: because they changed it from sid to trixie
10:29 AM JT-Shop: and I missed updating...
10:30 AM roguish[m]: why ya messing around with SID ??
10:31 AM roguish[m]: hey, i've go all 3 motors on my new digital drives working. hooked up on the mill. tuning time.....
10:31 AM JT-Cave: because nothing else works with my video card
10:31 AM roguish[m]: that seems odd....
10:33 AM roscogamer[m]: theres more then one line in this fine
10:34 AM roscogamer[m]: aka the sourses list do i just get rid of the rest
10:37 AM JT-Cave: anyway that's why I recommended debian 12
10:38 AM roscogamer[m]: i mean i dont wanna install it twice
10:39 AM roscogamer[m]: so id much rather just go for the most uptodate one
10:42 AM JT-Cave: using unstable does have some risk but in any case I've updated this page https://gnipsel.com/linuxcnc/debian-13.html.
10:42 AM JT-Cave: https://gnipsel.com/linuxcnc/debian-13.html
10:42 AM JT-Cave: well with debian 12 all I could get was 600 x 800 or something like that
10:42 AM * JT-Cave goes back to making chips
10:43 AM roscogamer[m]: oke i eddited the file
10:44 AM roscogamer[m]: apt update get like 1800 pakages that need a update
10:45 AM roscogamer[m]: then i run the
10:45 AM roscogamer[m]: sudo apt full-upgrade and then it says dpkg lock is being held
10:45 AM roscogamer[m]: nvm
10:45 AM roscogamer[m]: im dum dum
10:46 AM roscogamer[m]: oke it working
10:53 AM miss0r2: 'evening
10:53 AM JT-Shop: yo
10:57 AM * roycroft hopes roscogamer has a good backup of the old system
11:01 AM roscogamer[m]: hehe
11:01 AM roscogamer[m]: i have a backup of the ini and hal files
11:01 AM roscogamer[m]: other then that
11:01 AM roscogamer[m]: i do not
11:01 AM roscogamer[m]: no
11:07 AM Tom_L: JT-Shop, page looks better
11:07 AM Tom_L: get all the links sorted?
11:08 AM JT-Shop: I think so, sphinx does something funny with a trailing / on a link
11:09 AM JT-Shop: so if you copy the link from firefox it adds a trailing /
11:18 AM roscogamer[m]: Oké so it finished now I assume I need to reboot
11:18 AM Tom_L: it's not windows ya know
11:18 AM roscogamer[m]: Or does it already run 13 now
11:18 AM Tom_L: uname -a in a terminal
11:18 AM Tom_L: or cat /etc/debian_version
11:24 AM JT-Shop: I'd reboot because some of the things don't work until you do
11:55 AM roscogamer[m]: its saying bookworm/sid
11:56 AM roscogamer[m]: is that good?
11:58 AM JT-Cave: yep that's debian 13
11:59 AM JT-Cave: hmm actually that's 12
11:59 AM JT-Cave: so I think the file has not been upgraded to say Trixie/sid or something like that
12:00 PM roscogamer[m]: ohh so the update was succesfull
12:00 PM roscogamer[m]: neat
12:01 PM JT-Cave: I just installed here a couple of weeks ago and 498 packages can be upgraded today
12:01 PM JT-Cave: but that's unstable for you
12:04 PM * JT-Cave takes a nap

01:05 PM roscogamer[m]: i cant find the directory to clone it to
01:06 PM roscogamer[m]: or do i need to make that one
01:06 PM JT-Shop: git clone creates a directory if you append the name
01:07 PM JT-Shop: git clone https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc.git emc
01:07 PM JT-Shop: or you can do git clone https://github.com/LinuxCNC/linuxcnc.git fred
01:07 PM JT-Shop: pen a terminal (Ctrl Alt t) to build and install LinuxCNC clone into the ~/emc directory.
01:07 PM JT-Shop: is that the line that confused you?

01:09 PM JT-Shop: will create the emc directory
01:09 PM roscogamer[m]: it working
01:10 PM roscogamer[m]: sorry that im such a dum dum

01:12 PM JT-Shop: open a terminal with Ctrl Alt t
01:12 PM perry_j1987: hows it going
01:12 PM roscogamer[m]: oke terminal opend
01:13 PM JT-Shop: just copy and paste each line into the terminal one at a time
01:13 PM roscogamer[m]: mkay will do

01:18 PM perry_j1987: what do you guys think of this https://amzn.to/3c5deLb
01:18 PM perry_j1987: i really want to get something to test these threads on the lathe
01:20 PM Rab: perry_j1987, I don't think that substitutes for an actual go/nogo thread gage, if that's what you mean.
01:20 PM perry_j1987: ya
01:21 PM perry_j1987: i'll prob just get this 100 dollar set of go nogo gauges i guess
01:21 PM Rab: If you're just looking for something to compare for hobby "works, ship it" purposes, why not?
01:22 PM roscogamer[m]: at dpkg check build deps
01:22 PM roscogamer[m]: its giving a error
01:22 PM Rab: But for that case I'd try against the actual fasteners I was threading for.

01:28 PM JT-Cave: did you do each install line one at a time?
01:29 PM JT-Cave: hmm I might be missing some dependencies
01:29 PM JT-Cave: btw that's not an error it just informs you of missing dependencies
01:30 PM JT-Cave: even though it says error lol
01:33 PM roscogamer[m]: ye
01:33 PM roscogamer[m]: oh
01:33 PM JT-Cave: source-highlight w3c-linkchecker are in the list of installs
01:33 PM JT-Cave: sudo apt install -y source-highlight w3c-linkchecker texlive-font-utils
01:33 PM roscogamer[m]: do we need set dependencies
01:33 PM JT-Cave: so you skipped that line
01:34 PM roscogamer[m]: can i still do that
01:34 PM JT-Cave: yes, where are you located at? I've never seen texlive-lang-european before
01:34 PM roscogamer[m]: netherlands
01:36 PM JT-Cave: I must have missed an install line
01:36 PM JT-Cave: I'll have to do my install over again in the morning
01:37 PM roscogamer[m]: di i also need to install that
01:38 PM JT-Shop: you will need to install any packages dpkg-checkbuilddeps says are missing
01:38 PM roscogamer[m]: mkay
01:38 PM roscogamer[m]: can do
01:39 PM roscogamer[m]: can i use sudo apt f for that
01:39 PM roscogamer[m]: that should get any missing once right?
01:40 PM JT-Shop: that only works for a deb I think
01:40 PM JT-Shop: sudo apt install
01:40 PM roscogamer[m]: that did indeed not work
01:41 PM roscogamer[m]: rip
01:47 PM roscogamer[m]: how do i install these depencencies
01:47 PM roscogamer[m]: sudo apt and the the thing
01:47 PM JT-Shop: what is that?
01:48 PM roscogamer[m]: like sudo apt get
01:48 PM JT-Shop: get is not an option for apt
01:49 PM roscogamer[m]: oh on ubuntu it is
01:49 PM roycroft: apt satisfy may help in some circumstances
01:49 PM roycroft: it will let you declare that some dependencies are satisfied, even if they are not
01:49 PM JT-Shop: he needs to install them
01:50 PM roycroft: apt show will list all the dependencies for a package, which may be useful in determining what is needed
01:50 PM roscogamer[m]: apernently sudo dpkg -i (dep name) should work
01:50 PM roscogamer[m]: hmm
01:50 PM roycroft: and "get" is not an apt command - jt-shop is correct
01:50 PM roscogamer[m]: imma go try some stuff ill report back
01:50 PM roycroft: you may be mistaking "apt get" for "apt-get"
01:51 PM roscogamer[m]: ahh ye
01:52 PM roycroft: having so many different interfaces for managing deb packages can be very confusing
01:53 PM roycroft: i wish there would just be one
01:53 PM roscogamer[m]: same
01:53 PM roycroft: but linux likes to be inclusive to an extreme degree
01:53 PM roycroft: except for the things it doesn't like
01:53 PM roycroft: in which case it's exclusive to an extreme degree
01:54 PM roycroft: i think the point is that zealotry is required to be a true linux geek, and the type of zealotry is irrelevant, as long as it is extreme :)
01:54 PM Rab: I came across some github dep instructions that called for aptitude...it's not even installed here.
01:55 PM Rab: apt, apt-get, aptitude, dpkg
01:56 PM roycroft: apt -y install aptitude :)

02:00 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Vantec tech support in Ca got back to me within minutes
02:00 PM Rab: What support did you need?
02:01 PM CaptHindsight[m]: I could not find even one clear picture of the board
02:01 PM CaptHindsight[m]: and no mention of what part numbers are used
02:01 PM CaptHindsight[m]: mystery board
02:01 PM roscogamer[m]: oke i cant get it to install the dependencies
02:01 PM CaptHindsight[m]: so first clear picture ^^
02:02 PM Rab: Is that their picture, or yours?
02:02 PM CaptHindsight[m]: mine
02:02 PM CaptHindsight[m]: 8-9 year old date codes
02:04 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Rab: I just wanted to know the part numbers before I ordered. They don't even mention them on their data sheet for the board.
02:06 PM CaptHindsight[m]: can't find a datsheet for the ASM1083
02:07 PM roscogamer[m]: yea i got no idea how to install this stuff
02:07 PM roscogamer[m]: any help whould be apriciated

02:08 PM perry_j1987: thinking of turning one of these 12mm er16 straight shaft collet holders into a small spindle
02:09 PM perry_j1987: add to the gang tooling for cross drilling this part i got
02:14 PM Rab: perry_j1987, if you use 12mm ID bearings you might not have to turn anything.
02:15 PM Rab: I made an ER11 spindle from an 8mm tool holder and 608 bearings were a press fit onto the shaft.
02:17 PM Rab: E.g. 6001
02:18 PM perry_j1987: ya thats what i was thinking
02:18 PM perry_j1987: i'll just have to put a thread on the end of it
02:19 PM perry_j1987: or make the spindle cartridge long enough to just tap the end of the holder and throw a bolt and washer type thing on the end to preload the bearings or something
02:23 PM perry_j1987: ok how do i set up this gang tooling better
02:23 PM perry_j1987: i'd love to be able to just touch off tool 1 and the rest of the tools fall in line with their offsets etc
02:31 PM Tom_dev: touch off tool 1 and zero it, and zero the work z zero
02:32 PM Tom_dev: then touch off the rest of the tools

04:22 PM CaptHindsight[m]: roscogamer: yeah
04:22 PM CaptHindsight[m]: has some earlier
04:22 PM CaptHindsight[m]: has/had
04:22 PM roscogamer[m]: Me want
04:22 PM perry_j1987: what are the pancake motors for?
04:22 PM Rab: The top of their range (HT2205) is 1200 RPM max. I was briefly excited about hoverboard/scooter hub motors just because they're practically laying around for free, but they don't go very fast.
04:23 PM CaptHindsight[m]: perry_j1987: if he wants to keep it low profile, otherwise he can use a long spindle with motor off the shelf
04:26 PM perry_j1987: i got a 7x10 harbor freight mini lathe here that i converted to ballscrew with upgraded 6in of travel on X for gang tooling
04:26 PM perry_j1987: nema23 steppers and metal drive pulleys with upgraded belt 3:1
04:27 PM perry_j1987: i've kept trying and trying to upgrade the thing little by little so its useable
04:27 PM perry_j1987: holds 6 tools on 23mm center in the gang tooling block
04:27 PM perry_j1987: using the smaller nut style er16 tool holders
04:27 PM Rab: You want a spindle for cross-drilling? I guess like a toolpost grinder, but slower and torque-ier?
04:28 PM perry_j1987: well i want the rest of the lathe working better first lol
04:29 PM perry_j1987: i thought i had the saddle pretty fitted but today noticed the tip of a drill rocking back n forth as i jog the z axis
04:30 PM perry_j1987: I also have a techno isel 9x20 with the full enclosure and such
04:30 PM perry_j1987: mesa 7i96 on it. I really need to get everything tooled up on that lathe
04:30 PM perry_j1987: much stronger lathe
04:30 PM perry_j1987: but as it is now it doesnt have enough travel to run the 6 tools i need
04:31 PM perry_j1987: so i gotta do some modifications to the x axis on it to allow for more travel
04:31 PM perry_j1987: techno isel really limited the travel artificially on their cnc conversion
04:31 PM perry_j1987: its a JET 9x20 lathe they used as the base

04:55 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Rab: what is a available for low cost high power low speed spindle motors these days?
04:58 PM Rab: CaptHindsight[m], I'm interested in BLDC motors from cordless garden and power tools. Size is smaller and speed is higher than e-bike/scooter motors, and I think the form factors are better suited.
04:59 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Rab: I've seen some 40-60V cordless tools but don't know the torque at low rpm
04:59 PM Rab: And I expect a lot of this stuff to start showing up curbside, maybe thanks to failures in the fancy electronics which never affected the brushed versions.
05:01 PM Rab: Nor do I. I have a brushless DC motor from a Stihl chainsaw mated to a VESC, which did a good job of autodetecting the parameters after a few false starts. It struck me as having a lot of torque for its size in bench tests, but I didn't make any actual measurements.
05:02 PM CaptHindsight[m]: even 80V cordless now
05:03 PM Rab: The drawback is that the motor is 24V max, so to realize full power output you need a really serious DC power supply. I'm a little less interested in cordless BLDCs than I once was, for that reason.
05:04 PM roscogamer[m]: I have a cisco psu
05:04 PM Rab: I have a pair of 12V @ 100A HP server PSUs that I floated the ground on to chain them in series for a proper test, but the project is shelved at the moment.
05:04 PM roscogamer[m]: It's 42v at 130 something amps
05:05 PM roscogamer[m]: Amazing for steppers and servos
05:05 PM roscogamer[m]: Fan is loud af tho
05:05 PM Rab: I'm also kinda curious about 3-phase motors in bigger AC appliances, like a lot of washing machines. It might be possible to drive them with an off-the-shelf VFD, I don't know.
05:06 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Rab: andy has a demo of a washing machine motor
05:06 PM Rab: CaptHindsight[m], a video?
05:06 PM CaptHindsight[m]: let me find his link
05:06 PM CaptHindsight[m]: yes
05:07 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2HdikHRXnAs
05:08 PM Rab: 3-phase BLDCs are in everything now. My wife's rental house has a 1HP one in the HVAC air handler. My mini-split A/C is all brushless variable speed, both indoor units and condensor outside.
05:09 PM Rab: So I think these motors are going to be increasingly available, some with ideal power-to-weight and performance specs for light machine tool applications.
05:12 PM Rab: Having said all that, there was somebody who drove a little machine-tool spindle with a hoverboard motor...maybe even posted here.
05:13 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Rab: i found several in China few years ago but now I'm moving away from any Chinese sources

05:44 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://www.ebay.com/itm/275333674170 with low cost BLDC motor
05:45 PM CaptHindsight[m]: somebody US or Canada could grind these out just as cheaply
05:46 PM CaptHindsight[m]: grind a nice true spindle shaft and use real bearings
05:46 PM ZincBoy[CAON][m]: The thing to watch in those cheap hobby BLDC motors is that the power ratings are very much a peak rating. If you try to deliver 4kW from one of those for any length of time you will have a melted motor 🙂
05:46 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Chinese source for motors until there are better choices
05:47 PM XXCoder: would need to get good grinder to grind certain features flat
05:47 PM XXCoder: then replace all bearings
05:47 PM CaptHindsight[m]: ZincBoy[CA, ON]: i usually derate Chinese watts by 50-70%
05:50 PM CaptHindsight[m]: IF customers cared about accuracy more than low cost
05:51 PM CaptHindsight[m]: it could still be low cost but if customers are just chasing the lowest price why bother with them
05:51 PM ZincBoy[CAON][m]: @CaptHindsight, I think you need a bit more than that with those motors. I look at the size of the motor and compare it to an industrial one. If the industrial one is only rated at 400W for the size of a "4kw" one it is going to be closer to 400W actual.
05:52 PM CaptHindsight[m]: ZincBoy[CA, ON]: just examples, not final part numbers
05:53 PM ZincBoy[CAON][m]: Understood, but I have experimented with those types of motors quite a bit and there is no free lunch 🙂
05:54 PM CaptHindsight[m]: plus the fun of China
05:55 PM CaptHindsight[m]: 1st order all parts are to spec
05:55 PM ZincBoy[CAON][m]: LOL, yup, been there 🙂
05:55 PM CaptHindsight[m]: 2nd order all copper wire is replaced with copper clad alum
05:55 PM CaptHindsight[m]: 3rd order is just dog crap painted to look like a motor
05:56 PM CaptHindsight[m]: what does work is buying good parts out the backdoor
05:57 PM CaptHindsight[m]: so IF you find a manufacturer of say a good BLDC cordless tool motor, you need to find a connection to sell you the ones they make after hours or weekends
05:58 PM CaptHindsight[m]: or ones that "fall out of boxes" and they mark them up 5%
06:00 PM CaptHindsight[m]: grinding spindles is easy

06:20 PM XXCoder: i barely have energy to walk at all, let alone mow
06:20 PM perry_j1987: roycroft you should garden the dandelions for making wine :) its pretty good stuff
06:20 PM roycroft: i just bought a new tent for my camping trip
06:21 PM CaptHindsight[m]: it's was so hot and dry for June and july
06:21 PM XXCoder: 2 weeks ago mowing was really nasty :(
06:21 PM roycroft: i should probably go set it up to make sure it's ok
06:21 PM XXCoder: perry_j1987: bunch of recipes for those weeds yeah
06:21 PM XXCoder: like salad
06:21 PM roycroft: perry_j1987: the dandelions that grow wild here would not be good for that
06:21 PM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
06:21 PM CaptHindsight[m]: XXCoder: better find out now than in a field at night
06:21 PM roycroft: they grow really tall, with really scrawny flowers
06:21 PM roycroft: the kind that grows low to the ground and has big fat flowers would be great for making wine
06:22 PM roycroft: maybe the ones i have would do that if i watered them
06:22 PM roycroft: but i'm not going to water them
06:22 PM perry_j1987: just tell the neighbors they are being gardened :P
06:22 PM XXCoder: I never water field. ever.
06:22 PM roycroft: i water my gardens
06:22 PM XXCoder: plants live or die according to nature
06:22 PM roycroft: i do not believe in watering lawns
06:22 PM roycroft: i do believe in eliminating lawns
06:23 PM roycroft: and i'm slowly doing that - i expand the garden beds a bit when i feel ambitious
06:23 PM CaptHindsight[m]: plant trees not lawns
06:23 PM XXCoder: i want to remove all grass here
06:23 PM XXCoder: I hate them
06:24 PM perry_j1987: ok im back out at the shop
06:24 PM perry_j1987: i want to order a 5c collet chuck for this 9x20 techno isel lathe
06:25 PM perry_j1987: trying to determin what spindle threads it has
06:25 PM XXCoder: CaptHindsight[m]: find out what?
06:25 PM perry_j1987: it looks like imperial im guessing
06:25 PM perry_j1987: .1in crest to crest
06:25 PM perry_j1987: and 1.5in diameter
06:26 PM perry_j1987: apparently these lathes are suppose to ether have 38x4 threads metric or 1-1/2x8 imperial threads
06:26 PM CaptHindsight[m]: XXCoder: ??
06:26 PM XXCoder: CaptHindsight[m]> XXCoder: better find out now than in a field at night
06:26 PM Tom_L: perry_j1987, did you get one of those ali bldc motors/vfd?
06:26 PM CaptHindsight[m]: oh if his tent works
06:27 PM Tom_L: i forgot who it were now
06:27 PM perry_j1987: i didnt Tom_L
06:27 PM CaptHindsight[m]: might be missing parts or have a hole
06:27 PM Tom_L: k
06:27 PM XXCoder: oh since you pinged me I thought it was related to mowing. which confused me lol
06:27 PM perry_j1987: i think i really need to stop futzing with that mini lathe
06:27 PM CaptHindsight[m]: oh sorry wromng ping
06:27 PM perry_j1987: and transition all my stuff to the 9x20 techno isel for the time being
06:28 PM Tom_L: where does ff store it's bookmarks?
06:28 PM perry_j1987: depends if mac vs windows
06:28 PM Tom_L: win
06:29 PM perry_j1987: looks like its an sqlite db for firefox
06:29 PM perry_j1987: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles?redirectslug=Backing+up+your+information&redirectlocale=en-US
06:30 PM Tom_L: i'll just wait til i can boot into that os
06:34 PM perry_j1987: lol could you guys help me figure out these threads on this spindle nose
06:36 PM perry_j1987: the measurements im getting are not making any sense to me
06:37 PM CaptHindsight[m]: post pics and numbers
06:38 PM perry_j1987: i get dead on 1.5in diameter and .1in from pitch to pitch
06:40 PM perry_j1987: as far as i understand it the techno isel lathe which uses a jet 9x20 as its base (the jet 9x20 lathes had either 1-1/2x8 or 39x4 metric
06:40 PM perry_j1987: so i've never had to measure threads per inch before but if 8 is in an inch
06:40 PM CaptHindsight[m]: 0.1in would be x10
06:41 PM perry_j1987: i dont have an inch of threads to measure so divide that by half so 4 threads per half inch
06:41 PM perry_j1987: doesnt measure up to what i got here
06:42 PM CaptHindsight[m]: with so0 few threads either x10 or x8 should jam itself on it :)
06:42 PM CaptHindsight[m]: you only have 4.5 turns?
06:43 PM CaptHindsight[m]: metric threads have actual pitch not threads per cm or similar
06:43 PM CaptHindsight[m]: pitch of x4 would be 4m pitch
06:43 PM CaptHindsight[m]: 4mm
06:44 PM perry_j1987: https://www.micro-machine-shop.com/jet_collet_turn.jpg this is generaly what it looks like
06:44 PM CaptHindsight[m]: 1/8th of 25.4mm = 3.175mm
06:45 PM perry_j1987: rough measuring with calipers it appears 2.5mm from ridge to ridge
06:45 PM CaptHindsight[m]: yeah sounds like 10tpi
06:45 PM CaptHindsight[m]: 25.4 / 10 = 2.54mm
06:46 PM perry_j1987: and there's NOTHING online about it being 10tpi
06:46 PM perry_j1987: which is throwing me
06:46 PM CaptHindsight[m]: maybe m39x2.5 ?
06:48 PM perry_j1987: well in metric the calipers say 37.88mm
06:48 PM CaptHindsight[m]: 1.5 x 25.4mm = 38.1mm
06:48 PM CaptHindsight[m]: sound more like 1.5x10 in thread
06:49 PM perry_j1987: ya
06:49 PM perry_j1987: if i google for that there's zero results on google
06:49 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://www.amazon.com/Drill-America-m38x2-5-Metric-Hand/dp/B0995RHJ7B
06:50 PM CaptHindsight[m]: so close either nut would fit
06:51 PM perry_j1987: this is really odd feeling. having it right infront of me and doing the measurements but zero corroboration with the internet
06:52 PM CaptHindsight[m]: well the intertubes is not always right :)
06:54 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://www.teknatool.com/thread/
06:58 PM perry_j1987: hmm
07:00 PM CaptHindsight[m]: none of the Jet lathe listing mention x10 tpi all are x8 tpi as you mention
07:00 PM CaptHindsight[m]: so maybe you have an fake jet lathe
07:01 PM CaptHindsight[m]: or somebody swapped something
07:01 PM perry_j1987: the registration shoudler is exactly 39
07:01 PM perry_j1987: ok well the only thing that made me think it was a jet base
07:02 PM CaptHindsight[m]: maybe m39x2.5
07:02 PM perry_j1987: the front cover to the headstock is flipped around
07:02 PM perry_j1987: on the inside of the sheet metal is the jet cover plate lol
07:02 PM perry_j1987: so techno isel just switched it around
07:03 PM CaptHindsight[m]: oh well back to my work, it's already Monday afternoon
07:03 PM perry_j1987: its sunday right now :P
07:04 PM perry_j1987: you working with overseas people eh? :P
07:04 PM CaptHindsight[m]: what I do now is ready Monday afternoon
07:04 PM perry_j1987: ah
07:05 PM CaptHindsight[m]: i wish I had 40 hour days
07:05 PM Tom_L: git clone CaptHindsight[m]
07:05 PM CaptHindsight[m]: even 30 would work
07:06 PM perry_j1987: same here
07:06 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Tom_L: clone what?
07:06 PM Tom_L: YOU
07:06 PM Tom_L: you wanna get more done...
07:06 PM CaptHindsight[m]: ah, but i would not get along with myself
07:07 PM CaptHindsight[m]: and than whole wife/GF things gets creepy
07:08 PM CaptHindsight[m]: what would you do if you ran into your younger or older self?
07:08 PM roycroft: my jet lathe headstock thread is m66x8tpi
07:09 PM CaptHindsight[m]: m66x 3.175
07:09 PM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
07:10 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Tom_L: maybe a clone that could do all the work or all the sleeping
07:10 PM CaptHindsight[m]: like a battery for yourself
07:15 PM roycroft: i don't think my lathe can cut a metric 3.175 thread pitch
07:15 PM roycroft: although that *is* exactly 8tpi
07:15 PM roycroft: and it can cut that
07:15 PM XXCoder: not even with adoptor gearing as needed?
07:16 PM roycroft: i should go check
07:16 PM XXCoder: i saw one video where guy used 3d printed gearing for few screws on lathe that normally cant o
07:16 PM roycroft: because a 3.175mm thread pitch is not close to 8tpi, it is exactly 8tpi
07:21 PM roycroft: and i am correct - in metric threading mode, with the 127 tooth change gear engaged, i cannot set it to a 3.175mm thread pitch
07:21 PM roycroft: but since my lead screw is 8tpi, in american customary mode, it's easy to set it to 8tpi
07:22 PM roycroft: my lathe was made, btw, when jet were headquartered in tacoma
07:22 PM roycroft: they are in tennessee now
07:23 PM roycroft: but my lathe is pretty old
07:23 PM XXCoder: pretty local
07:23 PM roycroft: it was made in taiwan, of course
07:24 PM roycroft: ok, time to go do stuff to get ready for my trip
07:24 PM XXCoder: have a great trip
07:25 PM perry_j1987: jet was in tacoma wa ?
07:25 PM XXCoder: probably moved out when tacoma was high crime city
07:25 PM XXCoder: its still highest crime city in wa state, but far less crime than in 90s
07:27 PM perry_j1987: i remember growing up being told to not raise my hands above the door/window point in cars when driving through hill top tacoma heh
07:27 PM perry_j1987: 14 years later im at a rave in the same neighborhood lol
07:33 PM CloudEvil: 'Put your hands no higher than the door/window point for detroit'
07:34 PM perry_j1987: apparently my aunt thought there was a real problem with little kids throwing gang signs accidentally lol
07:58 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Detroit is actually getting much better, the jokes should be about Chicago now
07:59 PM CaptHindsight[m]: and Milwaukee has become the stolen car capitol of the USA
08:01 PM -!- #linuxcnc mode set to +v by ChanServ
08:01 PM CaptHindsight[m]: they were averaging 1 car stolen per hour
08:02 PM Tom_itx: CaptainHindsight, http://en.lanjiukeji.com/product/754.html

08:03 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Tom_itx: how is the low end torque?
08:03 PM Tom_itx: not bad at all
08:03 PM Tom_itx: i use a pid in linuxcnc to help
08:04 PM Tom_itx: i generally don't go below 400 rpm and tops on mine is 5500
08:04 PM Tom_itx: but i can drill etc with it just fine
08:05 PM CaptHindsight[m]: not a bad price
08:05 PM Tom_itx: i got mine from glockcnc and paid alot more but then i found those
08:06 PM CaptHindsight[m]: site looks broken https://glockcnc.com/
08:06 PM CaptHindsight[m]: was there earlier looking
08:06 PM Tom_itx: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trzO8H6tKW8
08:06 PM Tom_itx: i have no sound here but you may be able to hear how it reacts
08:07 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Tom_itx: which spindle is that?
08:07 PM Tom_itx: crapo sherline
08:07 PM Tom_itx: i've had it for many years and finally did something with it i can actually use now
08:08 PM CaptHindsight[m]: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rX4eP3QLwo0

08:09 PM Tom_itx: 1" woodruff cutter
08:10 PM CaptHindsight[m]: woot, I can read my encoders using LPT at 200mm/sec , 12,000mm/m
08:10 PM Tom_itx: :)
08:10 PM Tom_itx: some guy here actually got them from that site for his lathe but i forgot who it was
08:11 PM Tom_itx: the glockcnc guy is kindof an ass
08:11 PM CaptHindsight[m]: Tom_itx: you should make videos to show people what you can really do with low budget and LCNC
08:12 PM CaptHindsight[m]: you actually know how to machine things
08:12 PM Tom_itx: i'm not a videographer but i do show short clips of stuff i do
08:13 PM CaptHindsight[m]: oh that was with a 50us base thread
08:14 PM CaptHindsight[m]: so i can probably do 400mm/sec and 24,000mm/m reads
08:14 PM CaptHindsight[m]: with 5x oversampling
08:14 PM Tom_itx: and i've been criticised of running the cutters too slow but meh. i'm in no rush
08:15 PM CaptHindsight[m]: when it's your shop and paying me you can run it faster :)
08:15 PM Tom_itx: my kid does
08:16 PM Tom_itx: 2" shell mill 400 ipm or more
08:16 PM CaptHindsight[m]: well he has guberment paid for machines
08:16 PM Tom_itx: some of it is
08:16 PM CaptHindsight[m]: or does he on yours?
08:16 PM Tom_itx: no he works at a big shop
08:17 PM Tom_itx: he _was_ the youngest one there for quite a while
08:17 PM Tom_itx: @18
08:17 PM CaptHindsight[m]: I have crashed a 4" shell mill
08:17 PM CaptHindsight[m]: found out if the breakers to the mill work or not :)
08:18 PM Tom_itx: i put some material thru the back wall of the cnc while my bud was standing there
08:18 PM Tom_itx: we'd been talking and i was truing up some test specimens
08:18 PM CaptHindsight[m]: when I am tired I used to spin the RPG to quick for the Z
08:18 PM Tom_itx: forgot to tighten the vise after we were done talking...
08:18 PM CaptHindsight[m]: not after that :)
08:18 PM CaptHindsight[m]: yeah, when ditracted
08:19 PM Tom_itx: didn't really hurt anything but poked a hole in the sheet metal
08:19 PM CaptHindsight[m]: I have also launched small cuts with the cold saw only to be found months later under something
08:20 PM CaptHindsight[m]: you hear it land and ping ping ping in the distance
08:21 PM Tom_itx: that one video of a flycutter at a local shop is the worst i've heard of aside from the Z falling on a maintenance guy at another place
08:22 PM Tom_itx: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_Lzw0VBu-I
08:22 PM CaptHindsight[m]: I was giving the final tighten to the control arm bolts on a car on the lift, I had put a post under the arm to position it at rest on pavement....
08:23 PM Tom_itx: nobody was hurt in that one
08:23 PM CaptHindsight[m]: when I gave it full torque it lifted the front of the car off the lift and then cam down a few inches to the side
08:24 PM CaptHindsight[m]: ooops
08:24 PM Tom_itx: :)
08:25 PM CaptHindsight[m]: oh yeah saw that one before
08:25 PM CaptHindsight[m]: I never machine when I am tired anymore
08:26 PM CaptHindsight[m]: it's when I hit the vise or similar
08:26 PM Tom_itx: the one at youngers, the guy died
08:27 PM Tom_itx: can't be too careful for sure
08:28 PM CaptHindsight[m]: tired and in a hurry is when I also break taps in the last hole
08:29 PM Tom_L: there are some package lists in that build i can't figure out where they are generated
08:29 PM Tom_L: i tried to edit them but when i built they went back to the defaults
10:51 PM skunkworks: lol - hacking a running config.. Make sure paralel port reset isn't true for a pin you want to output pwm...
10:52 PM skunkworks: it makes no sense what is going on for a bit..
11:08 PM perry_j1987: i cant find anything online about 1-1/2 x 10tpi lathe chucks/backplates
11:39 PM mrec: I think it's time for some thread milling .... did anyone do that with linuxcnc already?
11:41 PM mrec: I also received my roughing endmill suddenly steel is more like butter and slotting is very easy
