Not to be confused with the British heavyweight of the same name which competed in Season 3.0 of Comedy Central BattleBots.

The Piecemaker was a middleweight robot built by The Gow School from South Wales, New York[1] which competed in the 2009 BattleBots High School Championship.

The team's second entry for this event alongside the invertible drum spinner Tin Shredder, it was a two-wheel drive robot with a tall box-wedge shape and a powerful pneumatic flipping arm as its main weapon.

Unlike its counterpart, The Piecemaker had a more turbulent run in the High School Championship, picking up an early victory over Mizbayakh before losing to Team Falcon's BABS by knockout. The Piecemaker recovered by securing three consecutive knockout wins in the Loser's bracket over Mother Of All Bots (M.O.A.B.), The Last Melon and Lunch Box, only to be eliminated by a second knockout loss of its own against Mr. Plow IIX. Thus, it would finish the championship with a respectable 4-2 record.[2][3]

One of The Piecemaker's opponents was an invertible twin-wedged robot armed with a red spinning drum; however, its exact identity is yet to be verified.[4]
