    Find an instructable you like, such as ]this one
    ]http//ww…s!/

    Now go to the url, you need to do a bit of editing here so firstly look for [COLOR=Blue]id[/COLOR] in the url

    ]http//www.instructables.com/[COLOR=Blue]id[/COLOR]/DIY-Professional-Lock-Picks!/

    Change this to pdf so it looks like this

    ]http//www.instructables.com/[COLOR=Blue]pdf[/COLOR]/DIY-Professional-Lock-Picks!/

    Now we need to copy the final part
    ]http//www.instructables.com/id/[COLOR=Blue]DIY-Professional-Lock-Picks![/COLOR]/

    paste this to the end of the url then add [COLOR=Blue].pdf[/COLOR] to the end

    ]http//www.instructables.com/[COLOR=Blue]pdf/[/COLOR]DIY-Professional-Lock-Picks!/[COLOR=Blue]]DIY-Professional-Lock-Picks!.pdf

    [COLOR=Black]All you need to do now is hit enter and the pdf will load for you!

    This doesnt work on all instructables as not all have pdf instructions attached.[/COLOR][/COLOR]

    Sorry should have said you need to be logged in to a free standard account first.

    My normal account lets me look at them anyway. And view all steps. I don't think they have put the limitation on current users yet.

    you can try this cool tool to download any instructable easily and export it as pdf abuouday.com/ins…er/

    Is this " Dig up all old threads day " ?

    In Chrome install Print Friendly & PDF and using that save as PDF.
