    Name our electric forklift! Name our "shopbot" workshop robot! Name our Bridgeport machining mill! Name Tom's rocket! During the evening, we will dedicate one of our workhorse pieces of equipment forever to you, and pin stripe your or a loved one's name onto the side and christen it with a bottle of champagne (imagine the "HMS Your Name Here!") forever stenciled onto our forklift. Particularly appropriate for donors who like to remain anonymous. First come, first serve in choice of equipment....
