I have a non compete clause in my contract at work in Texas. I want to go to work for a company that has customers in common with my current employer, but does not sell the same type of equipment. Is the non-compete clause enforceable?

Having customers in common should not be an issue. If you got a job at McDonalds I bet there will be some sharing of customers right? But we really can't address this without reviewing the agreement.
If you need clarification,I suggest that you consult with a lawyer in private and discuss your objectives in more detail. You can start by calling around to several for a free phone consultation, get some insights then pick the best fit to work with.
If you would like to discuss further over a free phone consult, feel free to contact me anytime that is convenient.
