I just made a bunch of fixed loops for Tablecloth Hammocks out of 1/8" Amsteel, and it took about 40" to make a 12" loop. 12" down each side + 6" bury(x2) + 2"(x2) shrinkage.
For the same 1/8" amsteel, These look like 12" down + 6"(x2) bury + 2"(x2) shrinkage.
This saves about 12" of amsteel per loop. I just made 10 of them for various purposes. That would have saved me 10' of material. A very nice idea indeed.
