A little vague - if you give everyone the size of your 'shop, what you are going to do with it (and what you would like to do with it!), you might get an answer.

I disagree. If it is for hobby use and items are bought secondhand, then you should be able to get most of it for under 2k.

table saw- kity 419 or axi ts200 £350ish used
bench top thicknesser- £200ish used eg dewalt dw733, axi ct130
jointer axi ct150 say £250 used,
mortiser £150 used, no ideas on models, but they come up regularly enough on ebay
drill press, say £150 used- various discussions on the forum.
sander ?? I I am not sure what you want here.

If you were so minded you could spend a little more on some British cast iron of old and do it up. The above kit is more than usable to achieve what you want to. You can upgrade in time if you choose. You might get most of your kit new for the 2k, but will get better stuff if you buy used. A bandsaw may be worth condidering.
