Every show from the entire 21 year history of The New Yankee Workshop.

210 DVD’s!

Wish I could afford it, I’d buy it.

I miss Norm.

If I had $3000 it would go strait into my shop. However, I would still have to watch how it was spent very closely.
Of course if I win the Lotto who knows what I’d do?

Wow! would be nice .

Like Schloemoe, have almost all of them on VHS but haven’t transferred them yet. Did find this cool adapter that makes the transfers pretty easy.

I like Norm but that price is a bit much. It’s over a $140 a season. Like others I’ll stick with the recordings I have converted to digital

I love the show, and Norm was a real inspiration, but $3 grand? That’s nuts! For that kind of scratch they should include all the plans / measured drawings, and each jewel case should be autographed!

I am also a M.A.S.H. fan, and the complete Martinis and Medicine collection, all 11 years, including the feature length Goodbye Farewell and Amen was full retail at $169.00. I MIGHT consider $500.00 for the collection without the drawings. Maybe throw $200.00 on that for the drawings. But wow, just wow, wow, wow, wow…

OK, I’m not crazy…
I DID say if I hit the lottery.
(That means more $ then you can shake a stick at kind of dough..) LOL

Then again, for that kind of money, Norm should come over and build something with me.
(alright, THAT would be kind of cool.)!

Thanks everyone

bit pricey I think.

If I hit the lottery there will be a live TV broadcast because I have a whole list of people I would like to tell to kiss my rich fat ….....(woodworking wallet)
