If one had a FFL-01 and you took a stripped lower reciever and completed just the lower would you be manufacturing at that point if you planned to resale it?

No, as long as it's not part of your regular business. Read number 6
ATF Online - Firearms - Frequently Asked Questions - Manufacturers (http://www.atf.gov/firearms/faq/manufacturers.html#dealer-gunsmithing)
The government is trying to squeeze out the little man. The ATF just changed their "view" on what a manufacture really is, so that small gunsmiths/shops with a type 1 FFL need to really get a manufacturer license to do anything. But, then they have to pay the ITAR tax which is huge.

yes I have heard of that tax and i keep seeing different views on wether or not it applies to a small scal operation that does not export either way i would not want to find out i owe that one as back taxes over the last 5 years.
