09:55 AM solarwind: Should I bastardize my bridgeport head by making a mount to hold a high speed spindle?
09:56 AM solarwind: like one of those water cooled 24,000 RPM spindles you find on Chinese CNC router
09:56 AM solarwind: Or might be fun making a custom head entirely
09:58 AM solarwind: Looks like there are only 4 bolts holding the head in place. Would just be a nuisance to swap heads
09:59 AM ZincBoy[CAON][m]: What materials do you want to machine? The bridgeport head is pretty flexible and matches well with the rest of the machine.
09:59 AM CloudEvil: For small enough spindles, you could piut the spindle in a tool
10:01 AM ZincBoy[CAON][m]: You can make a bracket that mounts the highspeed spindle next to the standard one. I have seen that done a number of times.
10:09 AM roycroft: one can buy such a bracket for about US$40
10:10 AM roycroft: one could be clever and design a quick-disconnect high speed spindle bracket so that it does not have to be mounted all the time, but can be quickly installed
10:48 AM perry_j1987: if your just wanting to engrave there are other options too
10:48 AM perry_j1987: diamond drag
10:48 AM perry_j1987: speed increasers etc
11:00 AM roycroft: drag graving can be done with a hss cutter
11:03 AM daight4206460[m]: Im trying to run some code in my machine but when i hit a g01 the machine just stops but runs in mdi, running probe basic
11:04 AM daight4206460[m]: Picture leading
11:05 AM * daight4206460[m] uploaded an image: (1080KiB) < https://libera.ems.host/_matrix/media/r0/download/jauriarts.org/pzCJDmgNQPVEZjWHuNSSTiDU/20220922_085301.jpg >
11:08 AM cradek: check motion.spindle-at-speed
11:09 AM cradek: if you have something connected there, motion is waiting for it to become true (waiting for the spindle to spin up)
11:15 AM daight4206460[m]: How would i check that?
11:19 AM daight4206460[m]: Hmm
11:19 AM daight4206460[m]: I deleted the spindle speed at it started running the code
12:33 PM Thorhian[m]: Can't wait to get a 7i73....
01:21 PM deathofxbox8107[: Its in stock rn 😛
01:21 PM Thorhian[m]: Yeah, I just need to wait to get paid first :P
04:10 PM daight4206460[m]: Input works reads 1 when spindle on 0 when off
04:10 PM _unreal_: daight4206460[m], what does it say when the spindle is half way?
04:12 PM daight4206460[m]: Theres no half way just goes straight to 1
04:12 PM _unreal_: lol :)
04:12 PM _unreal_: ;)
04:13 PM daight4206460[m]: Pranked 🥺
04:14 PM XXCoder: solarwind: just keep in mind, unless your parts is really insensive on tols, you probably would trim it each time you disconnec and reconnect spindle to machine
04:27 PM roycroft: it shouldn't be hard to make an ancillary spindle mount that indexes exactly every time the spindle is mounted
04:28 PM XXCoder: should not be yeah but dunno what he has
04:28 PM XXCoder: if I recall hes designing and building machine so could be added
04:35 PM JT-Shop: tomorrow partly sunny and high of 74°F a good day to ride the BlueWing
04:36 PM JT-Shop: won't be long and the tomatoes will be done for
04:37 PM Tom_L: rained most of the day here
04:37 PM JT-Shop: very light rain here this morning dunno what happened all day but dry when we got home
04:37 PM Tom_L: fairly light rain here
04:38 PM XXCoder: next we here miiight finally rain'
04:38 PM XXCoder: *next wed
04:38 PM Tom_L: JT-Shop, any news on the vette?
04:39 PM JT-Shop: no, going to try aligning the shifter Saturday and if that don't help then I need to widen up the approach to the 30x50 shop so I can get her inside
04:39 PM JT-Shop: today and tomorrow temps were too good to pass up
04:40 PM JT-Shop: it was actually too cold to sit outside at Chaumette Vineyards today
04:42 PM roycroft: we're having some sunny breaks today
05:19 PM * JT-Shop solves yet another programming puzzle...
05:20 PM XXCoder: JT-Shop: did you ever solve that threading issue thing?
05:20 PM JT-Shop: no, been working on mesact making it not change anything you add to the ini file
05:21 PM Tom_L: how's that goin?
05:23 PM JT-Shop: just got it working, the configparser doesn't allow duplicate keys so the [HAL] section could only have one HALFILE =
05:26 PM JT-Shop: so what I have working is to have all the stuff that is needed to configure mesact that is not normally in the ini file in a separate hidden file
05:27 PM JT-Shop: if I leave everything in the ini it becomes quite long... gotta ponder which way to go
05:28 PM JT-Shop: if you want to look the changes are in the ini branch
05:29 PM JT-Shop: hmm I need to delete the debs from the ini branch they are wrong
05:30 PM Tom_L: i'll wait a few days to let the dust settle before i build
05:30 PM JT-Shop: no dust in the master branch :)
05:31 PM Tom_L: i find it odd when i do a pull request and you enter it, it shows me as behind
05:32 PM JT-Shop: that seems to make sense a bit after I merge you're behind me I think
05:33 PM JT-Shop: I need to upload my updated debian 10 emc page now that 2.8.4 is out
05:33 PM Tom_L: i would think if the pull came from me it would be the same
05:36 PM Tom_L: it would be a rare case but iniList.append(['MESA', 'CARD_1', 'daughterCB_1']) could actually have 3 cards (7i90, 7i80)
05:36 PM Tom_L: if you get to those
05:53 PM JT-Cave: yeah I only support one daughter card atm
08:04 PM Centurion_Dan1 is now known as Centurion_Dan
09:01 PM mrec: my mesa card arrived with a sticker on it ... reminder you are not allowed to import meat
09:01 PM mrec: due to swine flu it seems
09:03 PM XXCoder: meat card lol
09:03 PM mrec: that was more important than vat declaration ... they missed that it seems
09:04 PM mrec: didn't have to pay any additional fee nice
09:04 PM mrec: I remember the last times when I entered taiwan they only checked the luggage for meat and illegal food rather than anything else
09:05 PM mrec: they're very picky on illegal food from China ..
09:05 PM XXCoder: I wonder if they would ignore packs of coconine, looking for meat lol
09:05 PM XXCoder: dont try it
09:10 PM mrec: Capital punishment is a legal penalty in Taiwan. The death penalty can be imposed for murder, treason, drug trafficking, piracy, terrorism, and especially serious cases of robbery, rape, and kidnapping, as well as for military offenses, such as desertion. In practice, however, all executions in Taiwan since the early 2000s have been for murder.
09:11 PM mrec: not a good place to be for drug dealers ^^
09:11 PM XXCoder: indeed
09:13 PM mrec: whow military offenses such as desertion
09:14 PM mrec: I did not pick that up earlier.. I'm sure those laws will be updated within the next years taiwan is far ahead of that
