  • What is meant by rebuild here? Restoration of areas worn down by friction? Jul 24 '14 at 12:44
  • What is meant by rebuild here? refurbish machinery parts Jul 24 '14 at 12:59
  • I guess you should describe in a separate question how exactly the parts are refurbished, so that others may suggest a proper term. Jul 24 '14 at 13:19

I found these definitions:

produce : create, make (to make, write etc something to be bought, used, or enjoyed by people)
fabricate : to make or produce goods or equipment [= manufacture)
refurbish : to decorate and repair something such as a building or office in order to improve its appearance [↪ renovate]
rebuild: to make something strong and successful again or to build something again, after it has been damaged or destroyed.

From these definitions, I would choose produce and rebuild as I think they describe best what you do.
