Combat robot status is officially: "Oh my ****ing god everybody panic because we're out of time, money, and hands to get stuff done."

Somebody made a big machining mistake today, in a big piece of aluminum. 10 out of 12 threaded holes in this piece of aluminum are fail. 9 of the holes have stripped threads, and 1 of them has a broken tap stuck inside it. The person is doing this on their own free time, so the only thing I can do is say what happened, say what was likely the reason, and spend some of my own money to make up for it.
