Lets see if I understand buy his equipment for full price on an installment plan with money you generate from your customers and your work. Then he gets 50% of your business. WTF?

Go to a bank and get a loan and buy equipment if you need equipment that bad. Or if he wants to sell but "doesn't need the money", let him finance the deal, you pay in installments.

Forget the partnership and take his one and only account. You should at least be able to buy any additional equipment you need with profits from that account.

You don't need this guy or his equipment. He really brings nothing to the table. He may even be willing to let his equipment go cheap in a couple of months. Build your own business and let this guy do his own thing.
