repurposeIDEA:  "We would use this as stock to 3D machine as cutting samples on milling machines (metal CNCmilling machines) to cut as check samples before chucking in very expensive hunks of metal.  These samples would be what we hand to the client for them to approve before making one out of steel, titanium or other exotic alloys.  The samples end up having no real value other than for the client to measure for tolerance and approve." David Schneider
