Hey you! Eden community at large! Did you hear about the new Club: Eden DIY?

ToyTimeTim ToyTimeTim
Do it yourself or DIY…For a lot of folks this is a way of life. Not everyone has the money to pay someone to fix a problem they may have. The problem is that not everyone has the tools or knowledge to do some things. This is my main focus for the Eden DIY Club. My vast knowledge and back ground of fixing things to save money has served me well; And I want to share the knowledge to the great community members of EdenFantasys.

We will look at ways to fix toys, make storage for said toys and anything else we can think of. Not only that but we will toss in some stuff around the house and garage. Things like, how to patch a hole in drywall or changing your own oil. Pretty much anything that does not require a degree in engineering or a mongo tool box.

Our first meeting will be on making a hands free lube/massage oil dispenser. I also have neat idea for using old lube bottles with pump tops for toy cleaners that can be used for massage oils too.

I hope that everyone will come and join the fun with me. I am sure that we all can learn from each other to better our lives. Plus, saving a few bucks by doing it yourself will be a rewarding experience and give you more money for toys.

You can use this thread for suggesting ideas you would like to see, questions you may have or anything else you can think of. You can also message me onsite or email me at

It sound great, Tim. I wish I could get my husband interested in the site. He's a DIY guru, too!

We'll have to find that thread where my JoyDivision The Body vibe's dial broke off, and I sent you pics, and you detailed how to fix it. (My husband just looked at and said, "I'm not gluing a dildo back together. Just buy a new one." The fact they I was lucky enough to have been chosen to test one of the few in the USA and they are impossible to get here now, and it's one of my favorite toys may have been lost on him. ) But, with your help, and my trusty fingernail glue, I fixed it! Remember? It's as good as new and used virtually every day.

Oh ya I remember like it was yesterday! So happy to hear it is still working for you. (I think my head just grew a bit lol)

This is exactly the kind of thing I want to talk about, we all have things that break from time to time. Why just toss them away if they can be fixed?

This seems like a great idea, especially now when most of us could use any tips that could save money. I'm looking forward to it.

I agree! I am so happy that my dad taught me how to fix things, I have saved so much over the years.

Sorry hun. I understand though, my schedule is kind of screwy so this was the best time. I would have liked to have it on a weekend.

Feel free to leave any ideas you would like to see done in the club. While I have ideas for the club, I would love to hear yours too. This is after all a community club

Yay! This sounds up my alley. I'm a DIY'er, too, so I'll probably have some ideas later. I'll try to make it to the first club meeting.

This sounds like a great club. I'm never around for club meetings at night b/c my kids and husband are home from school-work, but I'll be sure to check it out the next day.

Just got back from getting my oil changed at wal-mart and had to wait in the car 15-20 minutes before an attendant even came to see what I needed so a simplistic step-by-step guide to changing oil would be great.

How to change a flat tire?
How to easily modify your toys?
How to pick out the best tools for the job?

If you don't mind, how much did it cost? Also, can you give me the total time you spent there waiting for it to get done?

That is one of the topics on my list, it only takes a few tools and only about 20 minutes or so to do. The upfront investment might be a bit expensive but once you have them you will get the money back after two or three oil changes by DIY.

Flat tires could be done as well, it does require a bit more knowledge but the info is readily available as far as where to place your jack and torque of lug nuts etc.. Of course I can help with that one too. I set my wife up right with a nice floor jack and a breaker bar so even her small body can get the lug nuts off.

What's great about both of these topics is they relate to each other; both require you to jack up the car.

We will most certainly go over proper tools for various jobs, that is one thing that keeps us safe and our knuckles from harm.

Flat tires might be a little more difficult. Newer Toyota vehicles have sensors in the stems that tell the computer if something is wrong and they should only be changed by a professional.

I have heard of this but did not know a owner could not change a flat. So you have to call a tow truck, have you car towed to a tire shop? I am going to look into this. I was under the impression that it only was something that had to do with getting a new tire put on the rim.

Sure, why not? My machine is a bit different from most you may see but the basics are the same.

As you can see it is about twice as big as a average house machine. Where mine differs the most is its ability to sew heavy materials like canvas and leather but I can sew lighter materials too.

I have a Singer and a Brother, but no sewing experience whatsoever.
