William, selling routers is something best done in person. You really need to hold the different routers in your hands, work the controls and see which is most comfortable for you. There is very little mark up in power tools anymore, it's not a high profit item. It would be cost prohibitive to stock all the different brands of routers, expecially when you would have to compete against Amazon, HD & Lowe's to name a few. This might lead you to say: "Just stock the best", and again that would be a problem. What is best for you isn't the same as what is best for me. See the conflict? It is also true that there is no such thing as the perfect router. Not one brand gets everything right. This is why so many of us own more than one router. Then you have to add the sponsor problem. If you stock and sell brand "X" then brand "Z" is not going to sponsor your show. In the past Hitachi and Porter Cable have sponsored the show. Porter Cable still flies the banner on their web site that they sponsor the Router Workshop although they haven't for a few years.
You will just have to find the router that suits you best from another retailer. If you need help on picking one, go to the blogs section and select Sawdust Dreams. You will find some helpful information on the features to look for.
