Your plans for your PCNC1100 are the same as mine. I just wanted something to tinker with. I lucked out and found one on EBay for less than half price. It was an earlier model with no accessories but still a good deal for me. I purchased the deluxe stand from tormach and a few tool holders. I already had an old bridgeport with R8 tooling. Get a good vise. I bought a cheap one that has gotten hard to turn. I have a rotary table that I plan to convert at some point and am going to build a digitizing probe also. I have made many parts on mine for my tractors, bulldozer, golfcarts and other toys I have around here. Maybe when I retire in a few years I might try to make some side money with it, but for now I just tinker. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine. Best of luck.
