Need to make sure the 80% to 81% transition is done by the customer, not the shop.

If you don't charge a deposit, then you'll hear a lot of "Sorry Bro"
Maybe for AKs, but for ARs, all you REALLY need is a drill press and jigs (a milling machine is faster though) as you could just "mill" with the drill bit. You would need new drill bits (you could just have the customer pay for those), and periodic maintenance on the machine. Get a $130 drill press from Harbor Freight, buy the jigs, and you are ready to go.

A build party is one thing... but you're talking about a brick and mortar storefront open to any Schmoe off the street.
Why would the store be liable at all? Is Walmart responsible if someone buys one of their knives and stabs someone with it?
