Tooling is a huge cost, I probably have 3k in tooling from my last mill. Biggest mistake I made was buying sets of end mills and collets. You really only need a few collets in specific sizes, and a couple of end mills of good quality.

I don't know exactly what you mean by "beginner" - if you are an absolute beginner to metalworking I would recommend you buy a dremel, jigsaw, angle grinder, welder, bandsaw, lathe and then a mill in that order.
Not that new... I've got a race fabrication shop, mostly cut bend and weld sort of stuff. I already have all of the above.
