something that costs about 40-60 dollers
i am a beginner to "IT" work
and am woundering what to start with
Then my personal recommendation is the basic "Mirco-ITR " by Sorcery. http://www.penguinmagic.com/product.php?ID=S3831
It is cheaper, most of the parts can be replaced at hardware and craft stores, It is a good all around tool for thread work. If you get good at performing with and repairing it you should have a good foundation in ITRs and from their you might have a better idea of where to go from there.
You will need either a button up shirt(though it can be casual if you choose) or a jacket to hide the Micro ITR. If you want to perform like Blaine(t-shirt and jeans) and you, or someone close to you, is handy with electronics, then Tarantula may be the way to go. Just keep in mind that the learning curve might be a bit steeper with it.
are there any instuctions included with the micro-itr by sorcery or any dvds to teach you?
