Chap's workshop expansion

Dear fans and friends of the channel,

After my recent exploits with limited means in my workshop, I received a number of suggestions from you folks to fund and acquire better equipment, including the suggestion to come here to gofundme, so here I am. 

Much as I enjoy the challenge brought on by having to make stuff with basic tools, I know I could do so much more given the right tools.

The goal of this one-off campaign is therefore to finance a small hobby lathe such that I could make small parts useful for our channel (after a steep learning phase) without needing to beg for favours from members of our ever helpful fanbase.

I'm not looking to go professional so the amount should enable me to find a good quality lathe and acquire the associated tools and accessories to get started.  If the amount is exceeded, the plan would be to also replace my cheap wobbly pillar drill (drill press) and possibly add a band saw to the tool array.

I thank you all in advance for any contributions and see you soon on the channel!
