This addon can be useful. First, could you, please, make compressor accept water from IC2 pump/Buildcraft pipes to make snow? This would well go along with your advanced recycler. I would like to make a resultative process of replication.
Also, I have in mind two things how machines could be advanced. Your metal former should take kinetic energy and roll things faster with more mechanical power, this makes more sense. Another one, there should be something like a charge dock to charge about a dozen of items at once, would be more convenient than using an MFSU.
