Making a Buck - Rigging

I am moving over to the FL and Caribbean area for a few years and have a full set of roller swaging and nico press kit for making rigging up to 8mm Can the forum see this as a way of making a buck or two.

This kind of question has come up before. I would think that the real way to make money doing this would be to carry the materials needed to re-do rigging, the eyes, wire, etc. Then offer re-rigging services that are less than the going rate, so that those that left home with "well I think it is ok" rigs would have a real incentive to replace. Downside is that stuff costs $$#, weighs alot, and takes up space. Too much of it might draw the attention of customs as well.
