Costings

Here is a list of most of the parts that I have bought since I started building robots about 3 years ago now. I did receive 900 from Trinity school as sponsorship. They also let me use their very will equipped workshop. I have also got a lot of parts free from Panasonic, Arfa, Lynch Motors, Ensinger, Paul fabrications, and Avon Metals. I would like to thank My sponsors as I know that I would not have been able to build Oblivion and Supernova without their help.
