      In addition to selecting a simple project, search the www for projects that people have done in the areas that interest you. Look at the tools and processes they use and add any that you see the need for similar projects you want to do yourself to your 'wish list.' Then keep your eyes open for bargains on those tools, tools sales, Craiglist, ebay etc.
      If your budget is not unlimited, you can also add to your skills by making tools yourself, the disadvantage of that is you find you need the tool your are making to make the tool you are making. When you real a dilemma point in the project ask away on here for advice.

      Select a project



      (e.g., LMS oscillating steam engine

      <http://www.littlemachineshop.com/Projects/OscillatingEngine.php>)



      then purchase what you need to complete it.
