Re: Are you a do-it-yourselfer?

I have been building my own stuff since I was about 4 years old. Paying someone else is like paying someone to have my fun for me. I learned early on, how much better home made gear is than most commercially made stuff. If you build it yourself, you acquire the skills and tools to repair or rebuild it any time , or build any other gear you may need. It also maximizes your play time , which is what it is all about anyway.
