DIY women out there?
I've never thought about this, and, God, is it mind blasting. Do DIY women exist?

PS: Oh, I forgot to search first, the forum reminded me :D

There are a few here, extremely few in fact. I know about 2, one finnish lady and one american.
If you surf over to you will soon notice the very competent american lady.

And, we suspect that some that claim to be women aren't :xeye:

(Not talking about the above 2)

Yes, We are THAT boring..........

There are a few women here (more than 2) ... they keep it low key.

Now if you start talking DIY sewing, there are a lot of women.

DIY of all sorts is exploding as the internet allows DIYers of every discipline to share.

So now I should address people as "Ladies and Gentlemen," rather than the usual "Hey Guys"...

Once in a while it good to hear ladies or gentlemen instead of ixxxt and j**k etc. :)

My lady is very definitely a DIYer

Everytime I ask her to do something for me she says:

Well, my kid builds some of her own lab equipment: spectrometers for example, and mods ion implanters, etc.

Doesn't have much respect for my efforts, "Dad, why not just take a ride down to Circuit City?"

Kids! Bah! Humbug!

Well, I for one know at least one DIY Audio wife :)

We are working together on the repective projects...she even frequents this forum.

I saw a TV programme a couple of months back, about DIY Audio (incredibly enough ??!!??) It was from Norway. And there was actually a very nice woman DIY'er. I would say around 30 years of age, good looking etc. She was building tube amps, and loudspeakers. And much to my disappointment, she sounded just like any of us guys... :-/

And it seemed she was only into solding, listening to the sound of different capacitors and trying out special tubes from Russia ... maybe better if the women are not interested in DIY audio after all.


Have a sense of humor...
