I'm not sure if you guys already set something up like this, but here's a place where we can all map ourselves out:

Frappr AK Builders

I created it, so I have the admin access.  If anyone wants to take the reins if/once people start signing up, lemme know.  

I think in the "shoutout" section, you can list your tools and whatnot.  Good luck!

Hey FL guys,

I am in Lakeland Florida and need to throw together all the parts I have sitting around the house (romy/global).

I'm a first timer, and need someone to show me the ropes, but be gentle,

I will buy beer for all those who help me

Willing to drive, I recently sold my AR, and want to "join the dark side"

Please help, as I do not have a working long-gun, only a glock fotay and need to fend off the coming zombie hords

IM me if you are interested in free beer

Just north of Portland I actually work in the Lloyd Tower next to the mall

Just started my first build (maybe my last)  So if I have any extra parts or AK specific tools when I am complete I would probably trade/give them away.  Not like you can use rivet smashers for anything other than rivet smashing..... kind of like being a tanker in a civilian world never thought of that before..... anyways, can I contact you guys if I run into anymore issues?

I'm close to Joplin, MO. Gearing up for my first build. Got a Romy G kit and a receiver I'm getting from beltfedMGs (in process as we speak) an OOW in the white. I've got 17 years of experience in the machining trade, currently a CNC programmer/setup guy.

Equipment I have at home:
South Bend benchtop lathe

Precision tools
Lots of hand tools
bench grinder

Equipment I have access to at work:
Haas VF4 vertical CNC mill
Bridgeport mill
Mazak QT15 CNC Lathe
20 ton press
ability to make anything you can think up
etc. etc.

Would like to meet like minded individuals in the area and share ideas. Here is my picture so you will recognize me

Seems like there are a good number of folks here in the DFW area.  I have some kits heading my way right now.  A couple others mentioned having kits to build.  What do you guys think about getting together sometime for a build?  I am very mechanically inclined, but I have no AK building experience.  I would like to learn the tricks from some of these more experienced folks.

What do you think?  Anyone else from DFW interested?
