Reinforce both ends with spare cardboard. Make sure that the machine parts cannot slide along the legth of the upper. Use LOTS of newspaper to make the interior solid. And like I said, reinforce the ends with cardboard... ya don't want the "tube" end of your machine part poking out the end of the box.

BTW, my livelihood is selling people parts and shipping said parts to them.

That is exactly what I put on my slip when I had to specify what it was. Guns are machines, so you aren't lying.

What I did to the ends after lots of news paper was tape two plastic drinking cups over it. Sturdy and fast.
