Both micromark and littlemachineshop offer starter kits that have a small 4-6" vise with parallels, clamps and some basic endmill bits. I'll probably start there, with a fly cutter, and some midrange measuring dial indicators and such.

I'll convert to a belt system from gears, and also add an air spring conversion kit too.

From there, I've pretty much exceeded the cost of the mill.

I haven't even started on finding some stock to play with and what to make first...
