Just wondering. Probably just me. I thought that billet means a big hunk of whatever metal (steel, aluminum...). So a billet whatsit would be machined out of a solid billet.
Lately I see things like grills made from pieces of thin aluminum and tubing, angles etc. along with a perforated piece being described as "billet".
So a frog could well be stated as a dinosaur!
