In reply to Basil Exposition: I contacted the company that sold them to us and they aren't interested in buying them back but they would gladly pay shipping if I want to ship a box to them.

I would put magnets on the bottom of some of them as parts trays.

Mount the rest on a piece of plywood for organization of small things. That way, when you drop the plywood, you've screwed yourself on everything instead of dropping one at a time.

Another option... I'll pay shipping to send them to me. I'm a theater tech director. TDs HATE circles. Any time I find something that is already a circle, I hoard it. I actually needed those last season. I needed to make a cannon pin for a circus cannon set piece and ended up cutting circles with a wasted hole saw.

This, and sell 'em on Ebay for $5+ ea.

Glue a magnet to the bottom, on the inside, and it's a no-scratch nut and bolt holder that you can stick to your fender.

Edit: I'm totally unoriginal. Should have read the whole thread before replying.

If you're really interested I'd definitely send you some. Most of them will just end up in the trash.

Reusable clay pigeons?

If you're an out in the country kinda guy I'm sure you can fit them into some sort of thrower. Should be able to sustain multiple shotgun hits.

Get some metal pipe brackets and attach one to each cup. then stack them vertically to a 3/4 piece of PVC to create a swivel screw organizer. use a pair of 90's to attach it to a wall or workbench.

Those look exactly like the resonator blocker parts that people use on 996 Porsche intakes to make them sound better.

you should buy a 911 to test my theory.
