I'll get the longer answer later, but basically, Okrand said that 
"generally" bodypart words that are used for non-bodypart things still 
take the bodypart suffix, as in DeSqIv on a pot and Ho'Du' on a wheel.

There are very few exceptions where the meaning or the connection to the 
body has been lost, so one uses -mey, such as nebmey on rockets.
