 Hi .I have received another message on instructables that i am to yet again receive a copy of the published book how to fix absolutely everything . Some friends on here have already received there copy with emails stating when it was shipped and so on . One of my ilibles is in the book that is why i am receiving a copy. I have already emailed  support @ instructables   twice already   with no reply. i have reached out to a few people on here who i find out no longer work for instructables . Can someone please help me with the next step. It would be fantastic to own a copy of this book with my ilible in it ..



Hi there, I'm not sure why you haven't gotten your copy, but I'll check in with our shipping department and see what the hold up is.

I also appear to need to contact your shipping department. I just sent the following email to them but just in case they ignore could you look into it?

re: Shipment confirmation from Instructables.com

The tracking number for this shipment shows that FedEx delivered it. The number is


the driver delivered it to the wrong house/person. I opened a tracking
case with FedEx and they attempted to get the driver to tell them where
he left the package. That was last week. Apparently he doesn't know or
remember and whoever got it has not contacted anyone, including me. I
have been in the phone book for over 20 years so all they have to do is
look up my number but it appears that they are keeping my books instead.
(Thanks a lot neighbors)

I contacted FedEx again today and they
said they have now opened a claim on this package and I was to contact
you in order to have you reship it. Sorry for all the trouble. I almost
feel like there is a conspiracy afoot, all this time and I still don't
have even one copy of the book.

Please make note of the fact
that you have sent me 3 separate shipping confirmations and not one
thing has showed up. I sent you another email last week about the first
one and you never replied to it. So, from what I can tell you were
sending me 3 copies. At this point I would suggest that you just Bill it
all to FedEx and try again.

By the way the address you shipped to IS Correct. That has been verified.

Yes I did send it to the wrong one but it inadvertently got noticed anyway. They are going to send me yet again another copy. Maybe this time it will get to the right place.

Do you need .. 1M+ views .. to get a copy ?

Thanks for the pointer :)

It's for homeowners...

There are a nice number of intriguing titles to peruse.

However a renter I am not, more of a builder homeowner having added a full bath room w steam shower and moved a 200A electrical main breaker panel to allow the erection to take place against that wall.

Though I don't enjoy plumbing all that much....

Did you not just reply to the message?

If you got a message saying you are getting a copy, it should either have a link in the message to a form for filling in your address etc, or you can reply to the message to find out where to send your details.

yes i did that already in feb and this last time also 2 weeks ago
