    I would like to complete the trans-action by email banking if that is acceptable to you, or a simple US bank draft will work.

    What do you mean by email banking? Does this accommodate a dress and safety ball?

    Not sure. The tube is 21 mm ID wide and the steel ball is 15 mm in diameter. I would assume a larger ball would fit in the tube and would be unsed for industrial safety. I used mine for dress safety.

    Dress wear impact tests use a 5/8th inch steel ball, safety uses a 1" ball for basic testing. There's also high impact testing on safety where you shoot a 1/4 inch ball at 150 fps. The above tester would be fine for dress, but not safety.
