Default Looking for ideas on what to make out of these threaded rod

Looking for ideas in things to make using these threaded rod pieces I have about a hundred lbs. of these all with the nuts to fit the black ones are hardened but the larger ones I'm not to sure about

I picked them up for little of nothing in the salvage scrap yard figured id make some c-clamp jig's out of some of them that will bolt to my welding table and a screw pin press and prolly use some for turning.....

but would like to hear some ideas of other possible tools that could be made using these.

The darker ones are probably B-7 grade all thread which is 4140 with a hardness around 26-36 HRC. Easily machinable. The nuts are probably grade 2H or is that H2? Those are left over flange bolts for ANSI or API high pressure flange connections.
Nice find.

I had assumed they were flange bolts and figured they were too good a deal to pass on and figured they would come in handy and have a few other uses.
had a couple tool ideas in mind but think they could be used to make other types of tools or workings for other tool makings.

I picked up a dozen just like yours. Mine are 1 1/2" and 1 3/8". I will be watching this to see what ideas come forward.

There are 3 sizes.

The large ones are 2" x 16" in length.

The black ones in the pic are 1" and have a few but not too many of the black ones that are 1-1/4" and are 12" in length.

Smaller bolts can be made into alignment tools...
I always thought a large stud could be machined to make a feed system like the Cole Drill....

Having 4140 stock on hand for machining would be great. They would go into my lathe round stockpile.
