In the same boat. No.1 son is a DIYer, No.2 son not and its my fault really. He would ask me to do things for him which I did but should really have invested more time in teaching him the basics and fostering an interest.I am kind of the same boat Ian. None of mine have shown too much interest but a small ray of light with the youngest.
In the course of his career he moved to Auckland and bought himself a yacht and I was nó longer close by to undertake all the jobs that boat ownership entails.
His moment of truth came when he asked a tradesman to quote on some job or other which elicited the response 'Its going to cost HOW MUCH!!!?'
Since then he has the beginnings of a pretty reasonable tool collection and he's developing both the interest and the abilities to go with it. So there's always hope.
