This is neat, we need to try make a plan and for all of the guys who add DIY ideas for them all to go to one central collection point where we can find them. therwise 150 posts down the road in this thread, how do you find the one DIY idea somewhere in the middle other than reading the entire thred to find it which is somethimes painful.

I reckon DIY is such a large part of most of us here at MASA that even creating a tab at the top of the page next to "Home/Forums/Links Library..." just for DIY links like Neil posted, will not be efforsts wasted at all. As that lot fills up, it can be categorised so you have a drop down which shows a bunch of key titles and inside there are the many variationsof ideas.

Excellent Forum there Neil, there are so many of us who are just super enthusiastic about DIY and get a sense of enjoyment from it...Not because of financial reasons why we do it, just because it is fun to build stuff.
