Halacha - lifnei eever
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Is it lifnei eiver for someone who does not open bottle caps on shabbos, to give it to someone who does? and is there a problem of maaseh shabbos?
Answer: There is no issue of lifnei iver since there are many Gedolei HaPoskim who permit it. There is never ma'aseh Shabbos on a safek, and a machlokes is a safek. However, when I learned in Philly, Rav Shmuel Kaminetzky shlita told bachurim that it is not appropriate and poor midos to use another bachur as your Shabbos Goy.
