Still thinking about it.
Since I have a small shop now I been thinking what I can do steady long term to keep me busy and maybe make a little money to fuel my wood working hobby a little. I use to turn fountain pens and repaired antque pens long ago when I worked at a antique shop in Forney Tx where we bought at auctions and resold and repaired brought in pieces for clients.
A few times desk would be bought that had old style pens in them and I gotten into repairing them and refurbish them with the odd scrap of wood we had left over from projects and repairs and thought of turning pens and small stuff now as a hobby and maybe make a little money.
Now I am limited on what I can purchase right now and being doing alot of research on several different search engines since one always shows what they want to show :). But knowing a few of y'all that been doing something similiar I just wonder what is the most inexpensive equipment you started out with before you upgraded to better? Like a benchtop lathe, and a 14inch bandsaw. My spending limit is $600
