Tim Allen recently posted a photo of a poster he found in an old toolbox to his Twitter account. The poster apparently got him pretty emotional, as he stated in the tweet. “This poster came in a toolkit I have and it actually got me emotional. Raise a wrench to all those people who don’t talk, they do. Those folks who don’t blame, they engage. When stuff is broken they don’t cry and run…they stay and fix,” he writes.
The poster showcases sections that says, “Repair is better than recycling,” “Repair saves the planet,” and “Repair is a war on entropy.” His replies are being filled with people who also enjoy repairing their own items. It makes sense due to the fact Allen and his Home Improvement co-star Richard Karn are embarking on a new project based on this topic.

Allen and Karn will be executive producing a new show on the History Channel all about contestants repairing and restoring items around the house. The show is to be called Assembly Required and fans are super excited to see the two Home Improvement stars back together again!

Allen has a lot of deep respect and love for ‘repair and rebuild’
I've always admired people who repair something instead of replace it. So, I created a competition show with @HISTORY , and my old buddy @TheRichardKarn , to challenge the people who love to get stuff done! pic.twitter.com/EEVHKRPFum

“Let’s face it — we’re living in a throwaway society,” Allen says, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “We buy, break, replace … rinse and repeat. Whatever happened to repair and rebuild? There are some people who unfriend, unfollow and dispose of anything that offends, annoys or breaks — so I’ve created a show to remind people of the satisfaction and pride that comes from rebuilding something on their own. And who better to join me than my buddy from the old Tool Time days – Richard Karn! Now we’re talking More Power! Albert Einstein once said, ‘I’m not a genius, I’m just passionately curious.’ Well, let’s get curious! Even a chimpanzee would at least show interest, right? Wait — I think I just came up with another idea for the show.”
Currently, aside from executive producing the new show with Karn, Allen currently stars in Fox’s Last Man Standing. The show will begin its 9th season sometime in 2021. We’re excited to see the new show as well!
