I'm in Houston and me and my son have a Romy we want to start on but I have a lack of equipment.
I have plenty of handtools but no presses and such. I have never done a build but sure I can do it with a little help. I would love to work with anyone willing.

I don't know if you are willing to drive up to DFW, but we have a build scheduled for next weekend (two weekends from now).  There is a stickied thread in Build it Yourself called DFW build party, get the info there.

I'm going to assemble the tools for building over the next few months.
