The old robotics team had a ton of hand tools - we shouldn't need to buy
more. Nate - is the giant stainless tool chest at your home? I could come by
and create a subset of tools specific to the Vex needs. There was a tool
chest kind of made like a rolling picnic cooler that would be OK to hold the
tools at wherever we end up meeting.
I agree with the rest of the suggestions. Does anyone else want to chime in?

I'm following up to give some suggestions on what we should buy to make our
robot, I've compiled a list below.
Vex Booster Kit:
Vex Performance Tool Kit: http://www.vexrobotics.com/276-1645.html
Vex High Strength Chain Set:
Vex 3-Wire Extension Cables:
Vex 7.2 Volt Battery: http://www.vexrobotics.com/276-1491.html
These are all from the recommended purchases list from the president of Vex
Robotics (a worthy source). The performance too kit is only necessary if we
don't already have a bunch of hex wrenches (something to check with Nate
about) and the extra battery is just so we can have a robot with less
down-time. Everything else should be pretty self-explanatory, the wire
extensions expand the places out motors can be and the booster kit provides
more structural supports.
This is just a preliminary list, feel free to add on to it/ask questions.
