I have left out most of the hand tools Ya gotta stop somewhere!
You can fill in the blanks with the remaining $$$
And Yes I would add a sander (HP 12" disk is a good one)
Taxes and Shipping is still not include

The lathe is the best deal out there and comes with a one year “no questions ask” warranty with very prompt service and shipping
(They also have a “how to operate a Lathe” and “how to operate a Mill” on their site)
This is much better the Harbor Freight lathe of the same size
And Shooting star has a 5 year warranty, a very good unit for the price
Again I have hands on experience with all this equipment

The Mill can be modified in many ways with the power feed as the start
And you can add a column spacer for more height, with the DRO it’s a very good and friendly machine

Harbor Freight has the best deal on Roll-a-way Tool boxes (90320-9VGA)
At $399.00 there is no beating it
Having toys with no toy box to keep them in is a sad thing
