Whenever another nontoken artifact enters the battlefield under your control, you may pay . If you do, create a token that's a copy of that artifact.

So even if you wanted to put the Rat Colonys back in I would still leave out Echoing Return because even at their peak there weren't enough Rat Colonys to ever reliably get back more than 1 or 2, in my testing anyway. I do agree about Teshar, but I don't have enough experience with this type of deck to offer an alternative other than to see that Mirrorworks looks good.

No problem! And thanks for the follow up! I actually took your advice and took out like...half the Rat Colonys and Echoing Return and ended up adding a lot of creatures that could discard or support the artifact/vehicle aspect of it.
I'm thinking of taking out the Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle because playing the vehicles from the graveyard doesn't activate the "cast" trigger. Maybe something like Mirrorworks to make copies of the vehicles you bring back from the graveyard that stick.
It's funny, without the rats I think this deck almost plays a little slower. But also more reliably.

Mirrorworks: I kind of like it but it may be too slow
Kuldotha Forgemaster You have other options, too slow
Merciless Eviction: Damn and other spot removal may better

Sorry I haven't been on to respond in a while. I've been busy with work and haven't been playing much as my LGS still hasn't opened tables up to Magic players. I may not know much about some of these new cards, but I'll still offer some advice on running artifacts in EDH. (Most of my experience is with Sydri, Galvanic Genius in A Pile of Cans so feel free to check that out.) First, I'd try to narrow down to a particular approach to build around. Osgir, the Reconstructor offers a range of options in this regard. Then, you can make swaps for cards that synergize more with that chosen approach.
One option I see is running as many low-cmc artifacts as possible to minimize how much you have to spend on your commander's activated ability. The best bet for this might be the new modular cards. They have small bodies that can be buffed by Osgir after combat and give extra benefits on being killed off themselves. Bonus points if you can afford Arcbound Ravager. Modular is not actually a triggered ETB so you can't get more benefit from Panharmonicon, but I'll touch on that more later. Other options include Bomat Courier, Epochrasite, Gingerbrute, and Sorcerer's Broom. Making lots of token creatures makes a go-wide plan with Steel Overseer, Chief of the Foundry, Signal Pest, and the like more viable. Anything else that produces thopters or servos fits too. Untapping Osgir is probably more mana efficient than copying his ability with this approach.
The exact opposite gameplan is also possible. Run plenty of ramp artifacts like Basalt Monolith, Thran Dynamo, Blinkmoth Urn, and Hedron Archive to play and duplicate overwhelming threats. Darksteel Forge, Soul of New Phyrexia, Platinum Angel, Platinum Emperion, Spine of Ish Sah, Bosh, Iron Golem, Phyrexian Triniform, and Summoning Station are the first options I can think of. Unfortunately, such cards do tend to be less budget friendly. I think it would also be worth distinguishing between a plan using death and entry triggers and one using taps and untaps. The former is where Panharmonicon comes back into play along with Mirrorworks, Prototype Portal, and the refurbish-ers like Goblin Welder. The latter is where Unwinding Clock is king along with its little brothers Clock of Omens, Voltaic Construct, and Voltaic Key. (Both choices can also apply to a more aggressive approach of course.) Here, copying Osgir's ability is likely to be more efficient than untapping him.
Some other artifacts I'm a fan of that are always useful are Mirage Mirror, Kuldotha Forgemaster, and Scourglass. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to get back as soon as I'm able. I apologize in advance if that means a few days.

Nightmare Shepherd is one of the best as it adds a lot of functionality with no upfront cost and allows you to exploit sacrifice mechanics like evoke. Creating token clones with etb/ltb can easily become overpowered, especially when combined with populate. In fact I built a great ETB Roon EDH deck around it using cards like Yosei, the Morning Star, Protean Hulk and Wayfaring Temples that clone themselves. Token clone generation is amazing because it's essentially ETB blinking as a side effect. You have some cards that do it already listed under abuse but I think the mechanic is good enough and has enough viable cards that it might be worth making a new category for it.

Also some other blink type cards:

Listing the ones that specifically clone or blink artifacts in their own group might be helpful too.

Cards like Evolving Wilds , Izzet Boilerworks , Guildless Commons and Naya Panorama would double up on land drops or at least let a land be put back into hand to be used again. Firewild Borderpost , Meloku the Clouded Mirror
