Clint, that is a great idea. I have another version of the lifting eye spreadsheet which uses Alex Tomanovich's WELDGRP.xls spreadsheet but did not include it as I wasn't sure if that was allowed. I will look into it. Thank you.
John, thank you for the subscription.
Thanks for the work you have done.
