Overalls - local market or farmers suppliers (plenty around if you live out in the country).
Quilted overalls (remember it's going to get cold in a few weeks time) - Machine Mart.
Welding mask (auto darkening) and gaunlets - ebay.
Various tools - Machine Mart, some DIY shops (B&Q etc), shows, markets, Halfords
BOC for me, overalls and gloves. Also buy a set of their orange Bolle goggles. £8 but cheaper than eyes and nothing gets past them. Cutting disks are the best I've tried, you can get cheaper but they don't last.
Buy an auto helmet of ebay. Mine cost £45.
