Re: The Octane Hardware Aggregator

Since we are on the IRIX/MIPS subject, and in case somebody notice, I'm probably very rusty in any matters related to the nice Silicon Graphics world, and in fact I must say that I do not have at hand any type of equipment related. The last machine I had left, an Octane by no means maxed-out, was so...

Pimp My 9x20! :-)

i know there is some people here with big, professional, Lathes and/or Milling Machines... but what about Mini-Lathes and Mini-Mills users? Anyone here jumped into such a fun scene? I'm trying to cover both fields. For the record, here is my lastest addition (couple days) for my 9x30... just waiting...

Re: Cool (open source) software you would like to see ported...

I seem to recall it was ported a few years ago. In fact I think I installed and tried it on Octane around five years ago. Have you browsed the other folders from NekoWare mirrors?

Re: The Octane Hardware Aggregator

Hello there, Good People! It seems I was out of touch, quite a lot, but it is always a pleasure when appears in my InBox a new "ring-ring" from Nekochan.Net! ;-) Sure, I guess you can add stuff in the replies, if Pete (The Boss) allows it. I'll add your stuff to the list, anyway. Peace and...

Re: Machinery's Trivia :)

Happy late birthday Diego!!! Thanks!, there is still some pie at the fridge anyway! :) Perpendicular wear marks in the ID could be indicative of a tool holder as well. Sure, but I think the teeth are slightly too hard and too short for a collet or tool holder. Nautical capstan or ratcheting device....

Re: Machinery's Trivia :)

I would guess... rotary encoder. Hey!, good catch! ...but why would you charge with such a mass the device to sense? And have you noticed the tiny holes all around the shank? Does not looks like the classic spring loaded Ball-Lock to provide some audio/mechanical feedback to some kind of crank-load...

Re: Machinery's Trivia :)

First glance looks like a coupler...but I dont believe so. Me neither! :-) If you look again, you will see wear marks running perpendicular on the teeth, around the OD/circumference. So the outside has rubbed against another surface. Having CNC experience, this is indicative of being a tool of some...

Happy birthday chap.. Thanks! It was a fun little party! :) I just launched a pyrotechnic device in your honor, Diego! Cheers! That explains it all, josehill...
