How's it going everyone?

I am interested in building some small live steam engines (Mamod 45mm sized roughly) and other odds and ends as they come to mind.

I am kind of torn between buying a Taig mill and lathe (good price, CNC support is great), trying to find something small and vintage like a benchmaster and I have no idea which lathe, or just going with a mill and lathe from Little Machine Shop.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!!
You mention both CNC and Vintage.
Are you looking for a manual machine or CNC?
