One word Doug... Clones!

If I dig *way* far back in my memory banks, I think I can operate
a milling machine, and of course welding is something I've always
wanted to master. Me and a couple of the dudes that clean their
firearms blindfolded while hanging upside down from chinup bars
and you have a ready made rocket-engine construction crew.

Go for it (we will be happy to sign the non-disclosure agreements...).
