I've done some google searching and I can't seem to find much on the matter, so here's the deal... I've been less than thrilled with my boss for a while. Good paying job, secure industry, salary position managing the largest plant of its kind in the US, second largest in the world... Blah blah. Got an interview with another company making a good bit more right down the road. In the end though, I'm sure that I'll still be pissed at something three years from now. So I'd like to do my own thing. I worked at a machine shop for 5 years in the past and have spent 80% of my career in manufacturing. Toyota, John Deer, Cat, etc. I'd be interested in doing my own thing now and have "some" money to get started. So where do I go to find information on manufacturing requirements? License needs, building safety requirements, shipping requirements, and paperwork requirements on everything? I'm sure it's not something I can do out of my basement and/or garage. So what's needed and where might one find 1000+ AR lower receivers? In time I would like to invest in machinery and start making hang guns. I'm really just in the pondering pipe dream stage, but $hit, if RGuns can stay in business in Illinois, I could do some amazing things here.
