Two beat to hell shovel cylinders? I have two jugs that are in bad shape and not worth repairing or selling. I want to build something. I thought of a can crusher but I don't have any old pistons. Ideas?

Use them for solid fuel rocket boosters.

I think www.nasa.gov has plans on their site...

They work well as Jeff Goldblum undressers.

Bandsaw them into sections horizontally. Braze or weld Plate on the bottoms. Cool ass ashtrays for you and your friends.

Have a table made out of a blown/cracked T100 engine out in my shop. Glassed the cylinders so that the inserts could be pulled out. Can fill them with ice and stick a beer in each one.
