    For what you are looking at doing, an old myford lathe with the gear box looks like it would suit you. Some are on trademe from time to time.

    Buy seperate units, I bought a retirement myford super 7 with tooling etc for $900 about 3 mths ago, still liking for a small mill, will try to get and old one, some of the grated head mill from Machinery House look ok for the $$$s though!
