Thanks. Good questions.

This list already exists and with a lot of specfic attributes added to
each item (machine) including each having it’s own price and even
possible different tax.

That’s why I doubt it’s a good idea to model these list/items using
`stock.production.lot` customizations.

The only thing that some machines may have in common is the base model
and manufacturer.
So from non-technical perspective it’s more like “product & variants”.
Not like “product & lots of identical product items”, like e.g. in the
smart phone case.)
