I know the basics. I have an atlas 12x36, and my main limiting factor is tooling. Interested in finding a mill as well, just not in the budget currently. I would love to find someone local that can help me find stock to turn, the absolute essential tooling I need, stuff like that.

Possibly, where do you get your bigger stock? I am having trouble locating anything over an inch in diameter without paying through the nose for it online

I have a local merchant that I use. Are You gifted in the scrounging arts? Auctions and yard sales all help feed the addiction. Discount Steel is sometimes used when the local store cannot get it.

Yeah I've found some decent taps and dies and files at the local flea market, that's about it so far

It seems like there is a magic number for scoring at yard sales. It's like 50 to 1. 50 duds to 1 where You think You have hit the mother lode. The only way to speed up this process is to forget to bring cash, or bring a small car with no hauling capacity.
