            1. End mill set and collets
            2. DTI or Dial Test indicator or at least a dial indicator and a 6"digital caliper on sale at Harbor Freight for $14
            3. A vise or vice if you are so inclined....lol
            4. Work clamps
            5. Recommend you get the Steele Belt Mod. You will know when you need it, and then it is too late!
            6. Recommend you get air lift suspension lift.
            7. If you have red goop to clean off, put the parts in a plastic tub and get yourself a large can of WD40 and some paper towels. Others will suggest different cleaners but this is really cheap and works very well.
            8. Bolt it down to a good table.
            9. Some metal or PVC to destroy while learning - DO NOT BUY aluminum from Home Depot, Lowes or a hardware store
            10. Learn how to tram your mill
            11. Make chips have fun
