Our team doesn't have a lot of funds, so when we ask for something not immediately needed, such as a magnetic screwdriver or drill press, sawzaw, table vice, any building materials, a laptop, Kat replies with, "If you find us a sponsor, I'll buy you a ___". -Kat Hammer, 2017 ..........We're never going to get anything. -_-
