    potential to buy some cheap machine tools

    so there is an auction for an out of business PC maker here in boise next weekend, and I would not mind snagging some tools out of their shop if possible.

    In terms of bike light casing (among other things) what types of tools should i look for? I'm guessing a milling maching and a drill press, but let me know if there might be something I should look for.

    Thanks

    A mini lathe should come in handy.

    Check to see what kind of measuring tools they have. Calipers, micrometers, etc., are really useful.

    Clamps, decent vice etc, they always get forgotten.

    If you get a Milling machine, you really don't need a drill press.

    A band saw would probably also come in handy.

    Of course if get a mill, you'll need the cutting tools that go with it.
