Dreaming of lathes

Well, I can dream can't I?

I've been looking, longingly at times, at lathes over the last week. I'd sort of settled on the one I was thinking I might buy and then I came across this Axminster lathe that looks exceptionally well priced.

Of course it doesn't stop at a lathe. I'll need a good set of turning tools (£100-£130), a decent scroll chuck (£100), a face plate and revolving centre (another £30-£40, although some lathes come with these and some don't) a bench grinder (£50-£60) and some wood to turn!!

Still, if I can sell the cross trainer, the airwalker and my golf clubs...

Maybe it's time I took the plunge and investigated ebay?
