A couple of times Bob has suggested "having a router for every bit so you don't have to make any changes". I know that is wishful thinking but I am curious, how many routers do you guys have all together?

I told my wife Judy that Bob and Rick say you can never have too many routers, and Norm Abrams says you can never have too many clamps. And she said a wife can never have too many diamonds. Oooops.

I was at a show one time when the This Old House host was giving a talk. Most of questions seemed to be about Norm....... Steve said Norm had something like 34 routers, now was he kidding, I don't know.

I know I don't have enough, money or routers so unless I solve the first problem I don't see how the second is going to get fixed......

Guess if I had a sponsor to send me new routers which would get highlighted in a TV show, I would have more than I had room to store, too! I think suppliers are always after Norm to use their products on his show.
