    Well, in the face of all that, all I can say is

    GO AHEAD AND MAKE THE STUPID SPLIT SLEEVE.

    Well, the Suncos that I bought are rated at 2000 L per tube. They replaced a mixture of T12s that probably ranged from 1400 L to 2000 L when new but were at various ages. And the fluorescents did...

    I am using the 4 foot, LED tubes, Sunco brand from the web. I have 5000K on all new bulbs in the shop because I want to take photos and videos there and don't want a mixture of color temperatures....

    Your post and drawing both show a gear with an 18mm outer diameter and 40 teeth. If (and I did say IF) your gear has standard form teeth and not stub sized teeth, which are smaller, then we can add 2...

    Any chance he meant "you are" or "you're" instead of "your" which is the possessive of the word "you" and not a contraction. If you are going to dispense legal advise you really should get the...

    A contract between you and a customer is fine, but there are billions of THIRD PARTIES out there in the world and they have no part in that contract.

    Make a handle with a nice ball end and turn the other end down until it goes in. Then J-B Weld it in place.
