Dutch term or phrase: wissel- en slijtstukken
These do exist in the glossary, but here is an additional question to do with them:

Would a 'wisselstuk' be a 'replacement/spare part' (thus a part to be put in a machine, as a replacement), or would it be something like a 'replaceable part', and thus a reference to a part (already in the machine) which is expected to wear out and be exchanged for a new or different one?

There is really no further context here; the words appear in a list.

And 'dank u wel' once again!
