If it's a good party you will each wind up with a good AK to keep and you'll see if you like fooling around with that kind of stuff.

Metal working isn't rocket science, even using manual machines like lathes and mills, there is just a learning curve, it's dirty work with oils, metal chips, etc. and a very real chance that a moments inattention will ruin your part, throw it across the room or at you (very hard) and break your tooling.

Try to get a taste before you go all in. It can be fun but it's not for everyone.
