The lathe is just the beginning. You will need or want lathe tools and a chuck. Expect to invest at least 1/4 of your budget on those items and that is on the low side. I have easily spent more on accessories than the midi lathe. A midi lathe with a bed extension will meet your requirements and be less expensive.
