Big  Blue Saw

Those of you who follow us know that we love to build custom parts for robots. No robots grab people's attention quite like the ones that compete at BattleBots. These robots go through some of the toughest conditions imaginable, having to stand up to deadly spinning disks, mighty hammers, flamethrowers, and much more.

The robots in the Big Blue Saw Custom Part Army all rely on parts made by Big Blue Saw. I'd like to highlight 2 returning members of the Custom Part Army who will be competing at BattleBots in 2020: Extinguisher and P1 Evo.

Extinguisher
This fire-engine-themed robot has an upgraded drive system and more powerful axe for 2020. Team leader John Flaacke is hoping to bring the championship trophy home to Florida.

P1 Evo
In 2020, P1 Evo (formerly just P1) is created and operated by manufacturing engineer Brandon Zalinsky and mechanical engineering student Luke Bittenbinder. P1 Evo features a racing theme and is designed to be fast and toss opponents around with its front flipper.
