  1. A 100A lunchbox has a 100A male bates input, how are you going to connect that to your 60A feeder. You need to get 60A lunchboxes which have only 3 circuits.
  2. His test is the spreader up against a plywood wall. A different scenario than the same spreader against a plaster or sheetrock wall. The plywood isn't going to crush or crumble as pressure is applied.
  3. Double ended tubular lamp. In a spacelight I don't see how orientation would be an issue. Do you dim them up and down or are they full-mains power on? You should get at least 100 hours burn time or better. Check your mains voltage as well, is it on the high side?
  4. Will the load be at the center of the 11 and a half feet or more towards one end? That will be one factor in determining the amount he wood will defect at a given load. What type of wood? SPF, "white wood", something else? Kiln dried or S-Grn? Are the base plates of the spreader directly over a stud or do you intend to use scabbing to bridge the studs?
  5. Oops, my mistake. However Max Field doesn't appear to be the real member's name either.
  6. Okay, 650w halogen array, globes switchable to FAY daylight globes.
  7. McMasterCarr, DigiKey, Newark Electronics....
  8. How would anyone posting advice here know the answer to that? Unless of course, we have worked in India. This is the part where you go off and make some calls or emails to grip rental businesses.
  9. The first time you have a fully loaded grip cart or hamper of feeder cable try and roll off the edge, you'll wish you went for a bigger gate. Give these a look: https://www.palfingerusa.com/
  10. Internally the same, same blade width and thickness. More than enough brass in the blade to carry the 20A and then some without melting down. As Ed stated, the blade configuration is to prevent the unknowning from plugging a 20A into a 15A circuit.
  11. OP hasn't reported back since the 10th of May?? Camera sitting on a soft mount on an amusement part ride, held only by straps? A bad trip for camera, camera op. and any and all patrons of the fairground. The idea screams out for a rigid speedrail rig.
  12. There are also lavender silks as well.
  13. Double ended halogen 500w? Yes you can substitute a 300w globe of the same length. Why not use ND or a scrim to knock down the output? Make certain the color temp isn't too low, as close to 3500 as you can find. A lower voltage globe will have a very short and bright lifespan. Don't do it.
