    Good work space, Arch. Regarding a small drill press, Harbor Freight has a fairly large benchtop one for usually around $60. If you are planning on only doing small work Foredom makes one that you attach your flexshaft to but it only has a throw of a few inches and is somewhat expensive for what it is. Rio Grande sells a Proxxon mini drill press too, I have had good luck with that brand. Dremel makes a decent variable speed scroll saw, for about $160 at Home Depot.

    @arch72 you got a good set up. I have a suggestion for a tool for you. A small bench top lathe in addition to the tools on your wish list. I have made a living for 35 years on a lathe turning deco and functional pieces. Once you learn how to use a lathe you will never be without one. Regardless I think you look at tools the way I do. Tools are toys.

    @arch72 Looks like a nice workshop Archie. You should be able to keep yourself busy for a while.

    The lathe you are considering is pretty good for the price. Electronic Variable Speed control is what you want as switching pulleys is a thing of the past. Have fun!!
