I dig your enthusiasm. I'm the same way.

For boro, you need propane and oxy, no hot head or plumbers torch will work.
Your $1k budget will be challenging to meet since minimum prices for a torch and regulator will be around $200 and for the oxycon around $400. That only leaves $400 for workspace, materials, and tools/fixtures. Also, you haven't factored in the scrap you'll surely make while learning the basics.

The Bobcat is the hottest torch you listed. It can do small quartz and small/mid boro. I have a Bobcat and have been thinking about upgrading...

You sure outsourcing this work wouldn't be cheaper and wiser?
