I'm recently become interested in hobby machining, and would like to work on
some steam engine projects.
Since I'm just starting out, and don't know if I'll actually end up with a
shop full of expensive tools, my research leads me to believe that I'd be
best off starting out with a mini engine lathe, and get into a milling machine
later, if I find out that I enjoy it.
So - I'm looking for recommendations on both:
a) A decent quality small lathe ( like a Taig, etc. )
b) Small steam-engine kit(s) that can be completed with just a lathe and hand
I'd like something appropriate for a beginner, but not just a "file a few
and bolt the rest together" - I want to do enough work to see if I like
Any suggestions? Recommendations? Errors in my thinking? :-)
