The new e-mail has just gone out (4 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 13), and I hear folks are receiving it. If, by Wednesday morning, you have NOT received it, please let me know.

I mentioned last Friday that the digital issue had gone out, and it seems many folks didn’t get it – man am I tired of copying and pasting that URL!

But, I copied our circulation folks on all the many e-mails I sent, and they tell me the problem has been identified; they’re working on fixing it (which we expect will happen later today).

A new delivery notification will be sent out to all digital subscribers as soon as possible – so please hang tight. I’ll update you when it’s been resent.

    Just received my October issue Saturday the 17th.
    This has to be one of the best issues ever. Lots of hand tool articles and projects using hand tools.
    Adam’s piece on “Boring in the 18th Century” was great. I had not heard of “nose bits”, “shell bits” or “center bits before. Thanks Adam for another great article.
    Megan’s “Shaker Blanket Chest”, Andrew Lunn’s “Hang with a Saw Maker”, Chris’ “Dutch Tool Chest” and Bob Lang’s “The Mighty Compass” were all outstanding. Even though Peter Follansbee’s bookstand was not something I would build, the lesson on carving was great.
    Thank You and keep the hand tool articles coming!!!

    I’ve just sent a link to everyone who posted here. Apologies for the trouble; I’ve asked customer service to look into the problem. I have no control over the delivery method, but I’ll certainly pass along your comments.

    AND: If anyone else hasn’t yet received the issue, please send me an e-mail (I’m afraid I’ll miss comments as this post gets pushed farther down in the list) and I’ll get it to you:

  • randy

    Yep, same here as everyone else. No link, no email.

    10:10PM central on August 10, and I still have not seen an email regarding the October issue. I search every folder (including spam) for ‘Delivery Notification’ in the subject line, and I get every email for the past year — but nothing since the August issue email on June 12.

    Please help!
