It is actually bullets

From what I understood from the context, the craftsman is saying that he usually creates bullets out of the material in hand, but he can add other things and make them a different shape.

"We usually make bullets OUT of these"

The craftsman is talking bout how he usually uses the "Knick-Knacks" as materials to craft bullets.

Just mention the typo to your client and translate it this way:

"Usualmente los usamos para fabricar balas, pero puedo agregarles una cola para darle la vuelta.
Eso debería funcionar " - El artesano que hace de todo con todo.
