G' do I qualify for the longest build ever - starting 12 Feb 2007 and still in progress - I hope to so some record breaking atleast.

BTW - I got the water pump for the spindle cooling - its a submersible fountain pump.

Vishnu promised to send me the grinding skates today and the plunger tool to correct the v wheels -

and I will finalize the wiring of the controller the coming week if all goes well

Irfan,

Hang in there. It takes as long as it takes. May be you are working off some Karma. You need to give Ganesh some attention to help your build!

No G' the title is good as it is -

Today I just finished the controller for the servo machine - and the dust proofing the same. - it required so much effort and finally its done today - tomorrow onwards I am targeting Mechmate controller to finalise

Nils I am presently giving more attention to Vishnu (also a form of GOD) by calling him up almost daily. he's yet to send me the parts I need to complete my Mechmate.

Vishnu are U listening - please help me GOD

will post the new controller pics tomorrow - of the servo machine.

btw the wireless keyboard works like a charm.

Hi Irfan!

I realized I hadn't seen much from you recently but I rechecked your thread and there's a lot of progress!

Just wanted to check in and see how you (And Vishnu) were doing on your builds.

I agree with Heath, those computer cabinets look really good!

Keep the pictures coming. Looks like you should be seeing motor motion any day now. (it is a most blissful moment!!!)

I'm also curious as to how that spindle is working out but I realize you may not have it hooked up yet (unless it's on your other machine)

Best Regards,

-Jeff

HI Jeff, thanks for those kind words, its been tough for us coping up with the global downturn - its started affecting us already. thats why the slow progress

I am having a week off every month now

I am still waiting for vishnu to send me the parts (especially the grinding skates)

Meanwhile I finished the controller cabinet for the smaller servo machine -

thanks to all in this forum and especially JR and Alan - for setting the example.

Thank you folks

Irfan,

I have no experience with your touch screen, but I know that it is NOT GOOD for electronic devices to run hot. Since you have mounted the screen inside of your own enclosure, I'm wondering if you have inadvertently restricted air flow that the touch screen depends on for cooling.

Is it possible to take the touch screen out of your enclosure and still operate it? If so, you could test it outside of the enclosure and see if it still runs hot.

Regards,
John

it was previously outside and did not run hot - I will try to add a switch to turn the monitor off when the program is running - or add a fan to circulate internal air -

Ah - problem after problem

Hi Irfan,

I agree with John, your touchscreen should not be getting hot and John's
suggestion of removing it to see if it goes back to working normally would be a good debug step.

However, before you remove your touchscreen, you might also put a thermometer inside the enclosure just to measure the temperature for future information.... Most consumer electronics will start to fail after a short time above 70C and industrial electronics fail at or above 85C. (I'm guessing
the touchscreen is an industrial device)

The only reason I bring this up is because your computer is also inside the enclosure right? I'd hate to see that start to fail too.

A fan to push that internal air out might be a viable solution although it would add yet another hole for dust to intrude...

However, don't worry! It seems like problem after problem but you'll figure something out.

Keep us posted!

-Jeff

Pictures and video of cooling setup

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a04a_FtbR44

finally the cooling part is sorted out and I am pretty happy with the pump I have - the pictures and video show much more

+ the gear box setups have been mounted - I am presently going to setup the proximities and hard stops and then start running the machine - there is still a lot of wiring left to do in the controller

Hope to have a running Mechmate by this week end!

Good luck Irfan. It will be nice to see the machine cutting. You had a couple of set backs but you manage to overcome them all. Well done!
