    I'm just going off of what I'm seeing from littlemachineshop.com :) The seem to have a lot of what I'm looking for.

    This lathe would do all that I need to do really for lightsaber props and just basic turning down metal for

    And then I'm considering getting this mill and adding their 4th axis upgrade:

    It's a little bit more expensive then what I'd like, but I feel like it'd be worth it in the long run.

    Thank you! :D Glad to know that I'm in the right place. :D

    I stand corrected. It says you can swing a piece 4.3" so you would be able to get that hunk in there as long as there is still room to Mount a tool.

    I wish you luck and hope you are able to dip your toe in and leave it at that. Unfortunately for me, I am a full fledged tooloholic, and I do not plan to enter a 12 step program anytime soon. Seriously do what is best for you, don't let a bunch of egg heads like myself shame you into anything! The good thing it's only money and you can always get more of it!

    If you plan to get the mill above do yourself a favor and by a PM-25 from Matt at Quality Machine. His support is unbelievable and for someone starting he is the right guy to talk to. Give him a call and he will steer you in the right direction even if it is not to buy his stuff. I have the PM-25 and have not regretted it fo one second!
