Note from the Editor

Current news or old news ... in Wire Rope News & Sling Technology you can always be sure it’s interesting news. A perfect example is Don Sayenga’s “Cement Shoes” series, Part 2 of which is on page 8. If you missed Part 1, just look in our previous June 2015 issue, or read it online now before it’s replaced by this issue! ... and don’t miss Part 3 coming up in October.

We’ve gotten a lot of good feedback about our new website, and we are constantly thinking of ways to improve it. Like a possible Archive page that has our past issues in easy to download PDF format for those who missed out or lost their old copies of Wire Rope News.
