Excellent job on the router station, I have that video and plans, that’s all. I understand the amount of craftsmanship required to build such detailed and difficult project, a high degree. Norm was my inspiration for all those years with the New Yankee Workshop. You must have been a fan too. It is a pleasure to see one of his projects being built today by someone as skillful. Thanks for inspiring

Sweet…...I built the Norm r.t. about 5-6 years ago…It does hold true to form that he built the ultimate r.t. I ordered the DVD and plans at the time, and still have them….They could be for sale….!!!

Very nice. Nice bit collection too. How well does the dust baffle inside the motor cabinet work? I built the knock-off version of this cabinet but didn’t add the interior baffle. Maybe rethinking that….
