5. Download your Kindle book to your desktop

I followed the direction in the above link. Took about 10 minutes to setup and 1 minute to convert to PDF.
Don't forget to disable auto update in the desktop kindle app or it will update itself to the latest version and this won't work anymore.
I got a hard copy of this book as a homeowner/diyer and paid full price for it. Definitely handy book to have around. I find myself referring to it whenever I start planning for a project.

Thanks, used my slow shipping credit. My mom's stairlift has stopped charging and I'm hoping something in here might help fix it.

What kind of wiring, line voltage (e.g. 120 volt)?

Edit: nevermind, I see it's line voltage.

I thought about getting this since I have some digital credits expiring in a couple of weeks. But... anytime I've started a new project, or needed wiring advice, I've always been able to find answers quickly online.

I would have thought so, but I just finished a LOT of projects installing smart outlets and switches in my house. Firm answers were hard to come by on the internet (I was surprised also!). I bought this and paged through it and was finding it well organized and thorough and answers all in one place (plus, I trusted the source, as opposed to all the random youtube videos). Worth $3, imho!

I used to get great advice on with Google and YouTube, but in recent years I spend twice as much time trying to determine if the advice is sound, especially with YouTube. You can get hurt following a lot of advice on YouTube these days. Thanks OP, used some expiring credits.

Awesome deal!!! Thanks so much OP! I had the hard copy in my cart for the longest time but this will do just fine as I had some credits to use. This book is highly recommended by many and is much better to have for a reliable information.

Great book, but consider whether you are someone who can work from a kindle device/app. If you can't picture yourself flipping digital pages during a project, consider getting the softcover.
