Thanks for all of your input!

If it wasn’t for the routers I would swear that I was looking at my own shop.

I have one seriously shot router. I give it two more working hours before it’s toast. This is a nice shop Jim, well organized and well lit. I look forward to the pie table as well!

I think you have a couple of spaces left to fill on the shelves.

Let’s see – the reverse ovolo bit is on the…the…the…oh yeah, the Bosch 1617 router! But which one has the 1/2” straight??? I just don’t remember. Wait, let me get on the computer and look it up in my database.
