Good progress here!
Where are you with total costs - bearing in mind you know what your doing, an idiot like me might struggle with some of this..
A good question. Although equally one possibly best left alone (and I hope my wife isn't reading this).
I'll break it down because some would only be applicable to someone starting from scratch, some will pay less for their mill etc. I will exclude transport as well because that's massively variable. I'll also not bother with "material" costs as they're going to vary wildly depending on machine.
I will note that it's very easy for things to escalate and while a £300 milling machine may seem a bargain...it was £900 before I cut any metal with it.
This list is also missing a myriad of assorted bits and pieces, bolts, fittings, special grease (and second grease gun) etc etc. If I didn't already have an old lathe with imperial bolts I'd need spanners, allen keys etc etc.
