lathe/mill/information website

I am just starting to shop for a good mill and a lathe. Something good enough to do gun work on. I took a few machinist classes after high school so I know a very little. I am looking for some good websites to drool over equipment and maybe learn a little more about general machinist skills gunsmithin in particular. Anybody got any good links they would share?

I have a small mill/lathe combo but precision is not its strong point. It is a shopsmith eldorado. Anyone got any good ideas for any projects to help hone my limited skills?
I admit that I know just enough to be dangerous.....but dangerous at ever extending distances.
