Beginning old equipment at home (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

origin

Here is my best explanation:

'beginning' is the definition.

(origin is a kind of beginning)

'old equipment at home' is the subsidiary indication.

'old' becomes 'o'.

'equipment' becomes 'rig' (rig is a kind of equipment).

'at home' becomes 'in' ('in' can be similar in meaning to 'at home').

'o'+'rig'+'in'='origin'

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for origin that I've seen before include "Point of creation", "spring", "Place where something begins", "Source, derivation", "Genesis", "Derivation", "For a start", "Where X meets Y", "Starting point or beginning" and "Source, root".)
