+1. Having the all the toys is nice, but you have to know how to use them too. You can go a long way with a drill press, grinder, vice, and MIG, and you can get all that for less than one nice TIG and definitely less than a good lathe or mill. Buying used tools is a good idea, too. My bench vise and drill press were both used and cost $100 for the both of them. A lot of the older tools are higher quality than most of what you can buy new anyway.
