Delrin bolts. Pump handles (aluminum or delrin). Those are both very easy. modify hammers for less dynamic surface area. make a BT apex barrel adaptor. make push pins and linkage pins. make new 3 way housings or ram housing. Build a ram, three way, or regulator. build a custom muzzle break. stock adapters, barrel thread adaptors. feednecks. ego feedneck mod on autocockers. for grips, expansion chambers, gas through for grips, tank extenders (goes between the ASA and the tank). A barrel. An entire nelson based marker. and entire automag marker. Spool valve firing engines (I made a standard SFT engine into an HE engine)

Anything you want.

you cut them round then make some flat parts,
you could make a solid aluminum billet round coffee table.

you just gotta find some jaws that go to about 5 feet in diameter, and then manage to find some roundstock that big.

Try taking 6061 aluminum and build a series of legs. Then find a nice surface to use as the top of your coffee table, perhaps more aluminum, perhaps not.
