a lathe or a milling machine??

I'm looking to get into maching parts for modeliing.

I'd love to get both machines at same time, but my budget don't allow me to...(sad)

So... Should I start with a lathe first or a milling machine?

FYI, I consider myself as a begainer, though I've took some courses while in college.

I guess the biggest question you need to answer for yourself is what kind of parts are you wanting to make. Knowing what you want to make will be the biggest determining factor as to which you should get first.
