Am glad I didn't know how much machines really cost with the tools for tools. Honestly. It might have dissuaded me. And this is just to much fun.
Don't get me wrong. There are days I am pulling my hair out struggling with some sort of puzzle. But that just makes getting it right, all right.
That's one of the best things about it, it does take a while to get all the right stuff so it's spread out over time. Even those experienced machinists I pointed you guys towards still get jazzed about a new machine or a part they have been trying for years to get suddenly turns up because someone watched one of their videos. Like one guy just got a collet or taper 50J to fit a horizontal mill or something like that, it's huge. Now he's looking for parts to go in it, the search is never ending. Wait until you start wanting taper shaft drill bits
