The mechanical team is the largest sub-team on Blue Tide.  Its members build almost everything else on the robot: the wheels, chains, gearboxes, and competition-specific manipulator. While the team previously only used drill presses, hand-held drills, and basic tools, it later began to make use of more sophisticated items such as a chop saw, a mill, and a lathe after donations from Blue Tide’s sponsors.
