$300 for a DRO? I have Accurites on my Axleson engine lathe, and Bridgeport, I think they were about $1500 each, it was a few years ago,but I am positive they were over $1000 each
But either way you got a good deal
As far as a TIG welder, keep an eye out for machine shop auctions or surplus auctions, you can sometimes make a hell of a buy on them too, just make sure you have the right electrical set up, most are 3 phase.
I scored a Miller 400 Scynrowave, with a water cooled torch, foot control, basically the whole works for $750, that machine new was about $8000
