Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Looking at the people who traverse through this site, would it be a good idea to have a forum which captures the essence of DIY?

    Ranging from:

    Q&A section Electrics, plumbing, heating, brickying, welding etc

    Classic cars and car repairs

    Where to buy tools, which tools to buy and rating them

    A photo gallery of projects completed or just started

    Help section



    Having 3 women in my house I find nothing but peace when I am pottering in my garage.

    Please vote accordingly

  2. Seconded. We've got cookery and books (and bloody blogs ffs). DIY might be very handy...

    I agree. Manly men and alpha males are masters of tools, powered or handheld.

    Bloody awful idea in my opinion but it's not my decision so voted accordingly.
     
  5. Perhaps a first aid forum next to it.
     
  6. You can save yourself a few quid looking at them DIY forums, although I wouldnt advise anyone touching electrics, gas or central heating unless you know what your doing, Ive even been on forums about car servicing and been able to print a servicing schedule for my pick-up.
     
  7. Such a forum does not readily appeal to me, so I voted agin.

    It might attract REME walts, though. :wink:
     
  8. Nice try, I think the RE trade groups are probably more relevant though.

    Only if it contains sheds.
     
  10. I'd be happy to see one, if for no other reason than to guide and advise someone to an untimely death caused by following my tips of spark plug repair/replacement using kit kat wrappers and paperclips.

    I think a thread on oanism would go down well on Arrse. After all there are plenty of wankers :wink:

    OK, seems like I have no choice. DIY there will be shortly after I post this. Thanks for the idea Bipolar.
