Do you mostly take on DIY projects because you enjoy doing them or because it helps you get better audio/video gear at a good price? Have you ever wound up with a project that was a time-suck or money pit? I enjoy working in my shop, but I think about the only project that saved me a lot of money was the hi-fi speakers I recently made. I've fixed a lot of stuff and souped-up plenty of gear, which also saves money, but it's a time investment. I guess I mostly just do it for fun.

I have been motivated about equal with the learning aspect, craftsman challenge and the savings to be had. I feel lucky that I found the two resources that fulfilled my audio curiosity and desire. My speakers and amplification came from diy sources.

My father loved to tinker in his free time. I would say that he did it for leisure and learning. As for me, I fix things that were broken, but not to really save money or for the fun of doing it.
