Thank you again for all of your help. I have put together a list of what I think I need. It is a little out of my budget, though. I budgeted about $600-$650, and this is up to $767.53 after shipping of all items. Here are the links to each item I think I need to get me started strong.

Can you please confirm or deny either of the products here?

Thank you again for your expertise. You are a lifesaver.

The lathe with the drilling tailstock, motor, pulleys, everything to get basically started

Carbide bits for pivots. I had a hard time finding these. These were the only ones I could find that looked like what I needed.

Metric ER-16 Collets. From 0.5mm, 1mm, 2mm all the way to 9mm

Imperial ER-16 collets, from 1/32″ to 3/8″. I did the metric conversion for these, and most of them fall near enough to the #.5mm of the metric collets.

Taig 1190 Steady Rest, for pivot support

Taig Tool Rest, for doing pivots with the Steady Rest.

ER-16 Headstock
