Topic tags/keywords: norm new yankee workshop router station question

Hello woodworker friends,

I have a little problem and I hope that one off you can help me.
I have seen and hear a lot about Norm, from New Yankee Workshop
now I want to order a DVD from Norm, the one from deLuxe router station.
I get it from my mother in law, yes she is very kind :-)
When I order the DVD (and plan) I notice that they send to Europe, only they
have a couple off favorite country’s.
The New Yankee Workshop ships in Europe only to Spain, Ierland and the UK.
Strange, but I thought I send a e-mail, it is probably a error, but after a e-mail
I heard that they only send to this 3 country’s in Europe.
The first thing I thought, this is discrimination !!!!
But what I say to the man from the New Yankee Workshop, I get no DVD from norm.

Now is my question, does someone know a solution for my little problem, is there someone
from the UK who knows a address in the UK of Ierland where I can order the DVD
I search in the UK but I can’t find the Deluxe Router Station DVD + plan.

Thank you all for your help.

I don’t understand that either seems like a bad decision to me.I know companies wwho will send their catalogues to England but not Scotland so that’s also prejudice it costs them in dollars exactly the same as uk menas uk no matter where.Alistair

It may have something to do with the video/DVD/player format you have.

When I was stationed in Germany in the Army, none of our digital clocks (as I recall) worked because the cycles in the the electrical service were not compatible. Our transformers would step down the Germany 220v electricity out of the plug to 110v into our American appliances, but they could not affect the cycles so microwave timers didn’t work, etc. It caused us to buy either German appliances or “dual voltage” appliances with had the appropriate converters (sorry, I’m not an electrician) so support both systems.

As I recall back then (‘83 thru ‘88) there was a difference in video tape formats. Remember that DVDs didn’t exist back then! I would imagine that the differences in systems may have carried over into the DVD format and Norm may not sell a format appropriate to your home in the Netherlands, a simply BEAUTIFUL country, I might add!

He might actually be saving you money! You’d probably hate to buy something you can’t watch.

Dave is correct. For example, I go to Brazil once in a while. Their video formats are different. However, there is a way to go around this. One can get a US type DVD player for their computer and the problem is resolved. Watch from your computer screen. This should work. I never have had a problem with a computer in south america accepting any dvd or cd from here.

Firehousewoodworking and John,

No that is not the problem, I buy more DVD’s in the US, the last one was Basic Box making from
Doug Stowe and he works great.

Schummie, you can order the DVD + Plan and sent it to a fellow LJ (if you want you can have it sent to my address – I’m actually not even interested in that DVD, nor plans, and would not open it up), then you can prepay FedEx , or UPS for shipping it to your home, and it can be dropped at a FedEx/USPS/UPS location to be sent to you.. prob be more expensive since you’ll be paying for all the shipping – but it’s another option for you

PM me if that would work for you.

Thank you Puplev that you want to help me.
It was so frustrating when I got this email, maybe is that because I’m sick
For me is it over with the New Yankee Workshop, the think probable there
that we are criminals in the rest off Europe.
Sorry but I’m a little angry, maybe strange, but I find it so unfair.

You can also get a region free DVD player. Then you can play disks from anywhere in the world. It is sad that they will not ship you the product as I love my NYW Deluxe router cabinet.
